View Full Version : [SOLVED] thunderbird + unity

January 3rd, 2012, 11:12 AM
I run 11.10 with unity on a netbook with small screen, I think it is 1024x600. While trying to configure accounts on thunderbird, some configuration options are simply below the lower border of the window. And I do not see a way to make the window bigger. No scrolling bars, no way to move the window under the upper boundary of screen. Any way to solve this?

This will work with any application window that spills off the bottom of the screen. Hold down the alt key. Now left click and hold down the mouse button anywhere over the open window. You can now move the window with the mouse above the upper panel, revealing the lower border of the window. Once you've revealed the lower-right corner of the Thunderbird window you will be able to reduce it in size so that it fits on your screen and next time it should re-open the same smaller size.

Thank You, works now. I actually tried something similar, but touchpad did not behave well enough (must find something else guilty, always).
