  • Q. It would be nice if the size of the QuickSearch box could be controlled as it becomes quite large when Thunderbird is used full screen.

    If you have the Stylish extension installed you could create a rule such as:

    @namespace url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul);
    
    #xsb-search-bar2 > #search-container
    {
     max-width: 300px;
    }
    
    If not you can always put this in your userChrome.css file:
    #xsb-search-bar2 > #search-container
    {
     max-width: 300px;
    }
