I`m here to request an option to toggle ( or remove ) the titlebar in thunderbird.
You can already toggle the file edit view ECTs bar ECTs, but when I toggle hide all title bars in my OS.
the title bar with the search ore something else i don't need is stir there !
Id also still like to be able to remove the tabs.
Me and other`s would very much like this removed.
He`re is someone else complaining about it during the beta of the new version.
I support that request.
I have a small screen, and this title-bar alone takes more than 7% of the vertical space. That's 2.5 messages in my inbox using the default "Density" (3.5 using the compact one).
It is very unintuitive to me why the title-bar doesn't disappear automatically in fullscreen and reappears then when one hovers the mouse towards the top of the screen. Several other GTK3 applications behave like this (e.g, Evince).
I spent quite a bit of time trying to tinker with Thunderbird's internals, and couldn't find a way to get rid of the toolbar. The only work-around I found so far is to tell my windows manager to keep Thunderbird maximized but not fullscreen, and to place it higher up, so that the title-bar is out of the screen. I actually does what I want, but I think I do not need to argue that this is not optimal.
I scrolled through the Reddit thread and at least to people there would support this request:
More users in this thread appear to support that request, although they might just be asking for a way to remove the search bar (which is relatively easy to do).
