I lost my Thunderbird tweak. Please help me find it.
Windows XP Home. All updates installed (except IE8). Thunderbird 126.96.36.199.
I just had to reformat my desktop PC back to factory settings, I've reloaded FFox and T-bird from MozBackUp, and am in the process of re-customising the computer to my own preferences, one of which is that I like all image files to open as thumbnails. I've changed this in Windows Explorer, so that if I click on any file, everything in it is displayed as a thumbnail, and this is now the default setting.
Except in Thunderbird.
When I create an email, browse to Insert/Image and then select the file, it opens in list form. Like this.
To view the pictures so I know which one to choose, I have to manually select 'Thumbnail' from the view menu.
But what I want is for Thunderbird to open the file to view the images in Thumbnail by default, so when I click on Insert/Image it opens like this
Now, a couple of years back I came across a fix for this on the web. It wasn't an add-on, it was a tweak, quite possibly to the about:config settings, but I have a feeling it was tweak somewhere else in Windows itself. Of course, I didn't bookmark it at the time, or if I did I can't find it now.
Can anyone help me find this tweak? I reiterate that it's only a Thunderbird issue, in every other area where I need to open an image file, the files are opening to show thumbnails.
