With Thunderbird 115.4.2., the program no longer permits a compact density for the folder tree if you also need or prefer a more spacious ("default") setting for the emessage list and contents.
These spacing preferences should be separated...because the folder tree view does not change from minute to minute, so it does not need to be seen and studied as often. BUT the message list is constantly changing so users always need to at it more closely and frequently as messages are constantly arriving.
So more space more is more important for the message list than it is for the folder tree view. And if you have many folders, as I do, you may want a more compact view of the folder tree to reduce need for constant scrolling....even though you may want--or need--an easy to skim and see view of the message list, as I do.
After the redesign in the current version 115.4.25, it has now become either all too small, or all too spacious, but no longer possible to have a compact tree view for the folders and a more spacious or default view fpr the message list and contents.
Can you please separate the density setting for the folder tree from the setting for the message list, or otherwise permit a setting that looks like "compact" for the folder tree list displayed at left, but also permits a more spacious, or "default" spacing for the message list when displayed horizontally above the message content?
