Outlook 2003-style two-line threadview
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8 several people (me included) have mentioned this outlook 2003 feature as something that would improve the user-friendliness of TB's threadview (i.e. sender and date/time on one line and a long subject on second line). Looking through the source code, it seems that the thread pane is composed of a large xul tree element, rather than a table which i'd naively expected. My limited xul knowledge tells me that there's no built-in "column-spanning" functionality for these trees. Thus it seems that the nice little two-line view may be unacheivable... Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
This would definitely be a great feature of Mozilla/TB, should it be added. I know it'd mean following MS, but it's a great feature "they" have and "we" don't. I'd say it would definitely be worth the effort. Can anyone comment on whether this is feasible or not?
very hard post 1.0 feature that is a dupe. yes it would be awesome to have
