If the tree pane is collapsed it is hard to identify how to get the pane back. Feedback from an user: I don't know what I did, but suddenly the calender view is displayed in the whole window. Folder pane and Lightning pane is gone, and I can't figure out how to get them back. I can get back to the inbox by closing Thunderbird and then open it again, but the folder pane is still not shown at the left. And if I change to the calendar, I'm stuck again ... ... I found out, it was collapsed. But there is no way to see this, and no way to see, how to get the pane back again. I think this is going to be a major pain in the behind for ordinary users. At least there need to be a grip, when it is collapsed. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Collapse one pane in Thunderbird 2. 3. Actual Results: The splitter does not indicate how to unfold a collapsed pane Expected Results: The splitter should provide a push button to unfold a collapsed pane Here is the link to the openoffice.org spec describing its splitter http://specs.openoffice.org/ui_in_general/controls/window_splitter.sxw
Most splitters already provide a grippy. But on win32 winstripe theme the grippy is always hidden. (See Bug 330674 Comment #7).
