User-Agent: Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040113 The taskbar title is the same name as the currently selected item in the application. This is confusing when you double click a message and it opens a new window. After you open the new window, the Thunderbird application and the message window now have the same name in the task bar. I would much rather see the title of the thunderbird application just be "Thunderbird." You could do something like "Thunderbird: <Message_name>" to make it more descriptive if you want, but don't allow it to be the same as the message name. You could also help by making the application Icon look like something other than an open message for the main application (i.e. make it the thunderbird icon) and make the message window look like the open message icon. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Change your message window behavior in your prefs to "Open new messages in: A new message window" Also make sure you don't have taskbar grouping on (or just make sure you know you have it on). 2. Double click an email message to open it in a new window 3. Notice the 2 applications in the task bar with the same name. Actual Results: Both applications in the taskbar have the same name and can not be distinguished. Expected Results: The Thunderbird application should have the title "Thunderbird" and the message window title be the message subject.
I note the same problem on Win ME.
