Small attachment icons in Thunderbird 2

After we worked out how to limit the height of the attachments pane in Thunderbird, Windows users now have to deal with big attachment icons.

What’s up with that? 🙂

Here’s how to make those icons small:
Go to Tools–>Options–>Advanced–>General, and click on “Config Editor“. In the Config Editor, search for the preference mailnews.attachments.display.largeView. Double-click on it, which should change the value to false.

    Nice tip. No idea why the default is large, it makes things look so klunky!

    You are great! Nice trick! I like small icons too, and now I am almost fully satisfied with TB 2.0. Thanks a lot.
