The problem is that, when the Penelope extension is installed, the ordering of the TOC view columns is not remembered. For example, if I move the 'Junk' column to the far right, then quit/restart, the Junk column is back to where it was before the restart. If NOT using the Penelope extension, I can move the Junk column to the far right, then restart Thunderbird and the Junk column remains at the far right. Enabling the Penelope extension again at this point causes the Junk column to move back to where it always is in Penelope. To reproduce: - With Penelope extension enabled: - View your Inbox - Drag the "junk' column header to the far right. - Quit/restart Thunderbird with Penelope extension enabled - Note that the Junk column is no longer on the far right, but has moved back to prior location. - Disable Penelope extension - Quit/restart (now is Thunderbird without Penelope extension) - Repeat above (drag Junk column to far right, quit/restart) - Note now that the Junk column REMAINS at the far right, as expected. Problem only present for me when Penelope extension is enabled.
this error continues in thunderbird 2, penelope 1a19
Additionally it would be nice if the order of the columns could be different per mailbox. For example the drafts mailbox does not need a junk column, and I can imagine other mailboxes needing various fields and their placement and width being different from other mailboxes.

For me, if I set the column order, it does not even persist the next time I open the window. (I do not have to even quit).

this bug is still outstanding as of beta 8.0.0b3, TB 220.127.116.11. the associated bug is that if you configure what columns to show/not show, the change is not persistent after restarting TB/eudora. disable eudora, set columns as you like, they remain as you like persistently. enable eudora, and they revert back to defaults.
correction, i'm running penelope 0.1a19, the add-on, as opposed to having simply installed the 8.0.0b3 from installer. not that it likely makes any difference.
this occurs in eudora 800b4, linux
For those with initiative, this bug is fixed in the Penelope hg source code depot: <http://hg.mozilla.org/penelope/rev/df2d83297f88>. Otherwise you'll have to wait until the next release, Eudora 8 beta 7/Penelope 0.5a4.
Fixed in Eudora 8.0b7
