In the message list for any folder, the date column  displays as: 
December 23, 2008 Wednesday, December 23, 2008 12:59 PM
I would think it should only be December 23, 2008 12:59 PM

This does not happen on TB 3 on my windows box; appears to be mac specific.
I am running intel mac, 10.5.8

Reproducible: Always

I forgot to mention that this occurs even if TB 3 is started in safe mode with no extensions at all.
This WFM - can you attach a screen-shot please ?

You might have a customized configuration option in your prefs.js file (issue is that I don't have any obvious candidate to point you to)

You appear to have an extension of some sort installed - it seems like safe mode isn't completely undoing whatever the extension has done, if starting up in safe mode still has the issue.

"Edit my config", I see that this is listed under "Customized Style"

body { background: #FFFFFF; color: #1F007F; font-family:Arial; font-size: 12px;} ul {margin-left: 0; padding-left: 1.25em;} .ExtensionHeader {font-weight: bold; } .ExtensionDisabledHeader  {font-weight: bold; } .ThemeHeader {font-weight: bold; } .PluginHeader {font-weight: bold; }.GeneratedHeader {font-weight: bold; } .UserAgentHeader {font-weight: bold; } .BuildIDHeader {font-weight: bold; }

The only prefs.js files I have are in "mozilla" directories, not Thunderbird or Firefox, and are dated 2006 and 2003, and seem to be associated either Sunbird (which I no longer use), or Seamonkey (removed).

Mail list without extensions (safe mode).

The screen shot I showed earlier has my extensions enabled;
Here is the show without them. Same problem.

Good news: I think I found what was going on.
Apparently, I had at one time using 2.0 used "ConfigDate" to add long name display to the column. In 3.0 this appears to no longer be needed, and even with the extension disabled, it must have put something in a prefs file to add the long name, which of course, added it in front of the already existing default TB3 column display. RE-installing the extension, and setting it to display nothing in the date column removes whatever the line is in the prefs file. I can then uninstall the extension, and the date now remains, Thursday December 24, 12:44 PM.
No more doubles.

This can be closed. Sorry for taking time.

No problem, glad it's working for you now.
