Here’s a list of the bugs in Bugzilla related to the things I found while playing with Thunderbird for the last few days. Some of these are existing bugs and others are bugs I filed myself.
I’m still using it, and am debating sticking with it despite the handful of frustrating issues, although I still suspect the lack of address book integration will finally send me back to Mail.

I’m not filing the basic issues with the UI being noncompliant with some UI guidelines, or about widgets being non-native, since that’s all well known and is hopefully going to be addressed in the relatively near future.

    If Thunderbird goes the way Firefox has gone lately, no, that won’t happen.

  2. I have been using the Unread Folders sidebar for weeks. I love it! I just click the right arrow at the top of the All Folders sidebar to get into it. I haven’t seen the issue with the message pane dragger, but then I usually don’t have that pane opened in favor of seeing more messages in the list. I just open up a message window and use the Button! extension to add Previous! and Next! buttons to my toolbar to go from message to message.
