Created attachment 606774 [details] Screenshot demonstrating the issue User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.7; rv:11.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/11.0 Build ID: 20120310173008 Steps to reproduce: In Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.7; rv:13.0) Gecko/20120315 Thunderbird/13.0a2 ID:20120315030021 - Open the Message Filter dialog (Tools -> Message Filters), then - Either create or edit a message filter. Actual results: The FilterEditor UI does not display with the correct dimensions, and user interface elements are invisible (including the OK and Cancel buttons). Expected results: The entire FilterEditor UI should be displayed.
If you resize the window manually, does it keep the size at subsequest opens?
(In reply to :aceman from comment #1) > If you resize the window manually, does it keep the size at subsequest opens? Hmm. It's not directly obvious that the dialog is resizeable, but yes, the dialog does maintain it's dimensions across reopening and restarting Earlybird. I note that the issue also presents with a clean profile, and can be resolved in a similar way. Is it possible to add some user interface element to it to make it more obvious that the dialog is resizeable?
Yeah, that dialog is a bit non-standard. Is there a resizer corner in the filter list window on your system? But the real problem here is why would it be so small even in clean profile? Can your window manager interfere and set the initial size?
I'm not sure; I'm sure that the OS X window manager could certainly make a mess of it. What I find more concerning is that I cannot find any other dialogs in any application on my system that can be resized by grabbing the borders. There isn't any sign of a resize grip, or anything else for that matter, until one hovers over the edge of the window.
That is true. As I said, that dialog is different from other windows (by looking into the code). As a dialog it should probably not be resizable. It should be a normal window with a resizer. But there may be some legacy reasons why it is implemented in that way. I can confirm it does not have a resizer grip on Linux and Windows too. But this is a problem for another bug, it would be nice if you file it.
Bug filed, #737796.
Thanks, so now back to the original issue. Can you find any more indices when does the dialog come out so wrongly small? I have no experience with Mac OS X, CCing bwinton.
It's highly plausible that there's some preference issue buried away somewhere, but I'm not sure where to look (my background is Linux and BSD, and OS X is still relatively new to me).
Yes, but we need to find out if it is TB setting and storing the preference (window size) or it is something else. TB stores the sizes of all its windows in its profile and restores them on next window open. But when you see it in clean profile then it is strange where should be nothing to restore from.
Does this still occur in version 45?

Eckard, does this reproducefor you?
(In reply to Wayne Mery (:wsmwk, NI for questions) from comment #12) > Eckard, does this reproducefor you? No, I can't reproduce this issue.
I cannot reproduce it. When I size the dialog box small, I can still see the vertical scroller on the right. When I originally reported 771652, this was not the case. Thunderbird 45.6.0. Mac OS X 10.11.6. JC
JC, Eckard thanks for the test.
