Confirmed on Mac OS X. Every time I start Thunderbird, I have to resize its window to something decent, over and over again.
Changes in three column layout is discussed for Thunderbird 2.0 http://wiki.mozilla.org/Talk:Thunderbird:2.0_Product_Planning#Update_Vertical_View_Layout "sort" & "group by" settings are regularly lost, too. couldn't reproduce it yet.
Seems to be fixed in TB 1.5! Can someone confirm this, before we change resolution to fixed?
