Description

14 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050317 Firefox/1.0.2
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050317 Firefox/1.0.2

My laptop has a max resolution of 1280x800 and the Junk Mail Controls window is
too tall to see any kind of Save Changes button.  I can't resize the window
taller than 800 pixels because XP limits it, and the window itself looks like it
wastes a lot of space with some of the text labels, like "White Lists" and
"Handling".  There's a lot of room to shrink the window height.  In the mean
time, I can't turn on Junk Mail filtering because the button is inaccessible.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reduce screen resolution to anything with a height of 800 or less
2. Start Thunderbird, go to Tools -> Junk Mail Controls...
3.

Actual Results:  
The Junk Mail Controls window is too tall and any Save Change button is
inaccessible.

Expected Results:  
It should at least fit in the screen space.  A good idea would be to have it
resize depending on user resolution, but not entirely necessary.

using this version (French) : version 1.0.2 (20050317)

This isn't exactly trivial when the GUI design covers up buttons needed to
activate certain, and in this case major, features of a program.  I can only
assume you need to press a button or something to apply any changes, because
checking boxes and then closing the window using the X in the upper right hand
corner doesn't save the changes you've made to preferences.  I can't increase
the screen resolution to fix the problem.  And I'm running the us-en version.

I don't even know what you're trying to tell me in your post.  Could you explain
a little more?

I've uploaded a screenshot to show my dilemma.
