Please note that the decribed behaviour after a fresh installation of ABP into Thunderbird isn't too static, meaning some restarts of Thunderbird will then toggle it. Approving it's an ABP issue is possible via using the "Help/Restart with deactivated Addons" feature of Thunderbird.

This also occurring in Thunderbird 24.4.0 on Fedora 19. with Adblock 2.5.1.

Happening to me too on Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit, Thunderbird 24.5.0, ABP 2.6. After installing ABP and restarting Thunderbird, the status bar is messed up - it appears to me that elements that should stay on the right side of the status bar are moved on the left side, leaving no space for the others. Some elements are not present at all.

  • Platform set to Firefox

Replying to philll:

Platform was set to Firefox but this is for Thunderbird. Needs changing back.

Current Thunderbird version is 31.2.0, do you still see that issue after updating? Do you have any other extensions installed? Does the issue still happen if you disable all extensions but Adblock Plus?

That's not something I can immediately reproduce, and frankly I don't see why it would happen - unless other extensions are involved.

I was also affected by this issue a few months back, leading me to disable ABP in Thunderbird. I have enabled ABP again about 2 weeks ago and haven't had the issue since then, so whatever the issue was, it appears to have been fixed in the meantime.
