I have a suggestion for Thunderbird. It would be nice to have Thunderbird allow a new Compose Message window to show up in a Thunderbird tab instead of a free floating window as it does now. I would make this a user configurable item in perhaps Preferences, where the user can select whether he/she wants to have each new Compose Message window be a free floating window or a Thunderbird tab. Thanks for considering this.

Hey PT, Thunderbird Product Manager here!

This work is actually planned for the 2023 release, so expect to see it in the near-ish future!

Thanks for the feedback, this reassures me that we are going the right direction!
