Thunderbird Newsgroup Tooltips /

Lucas Yamanishi
It'd be nice to have hover tooltips on newsgroup names and the entire
folders pane in general.  I like the abbreviation, but it's annoying
when I'm first learning the names of newsgroups.  I know it's possible
to just expand the names using the "mail.server.default.abbreviate"
option from the config menu, but they still end up getting cut off if
the folders pane isn't large enough.  It's also easy enough to just open
the group or right click and select properties, but that takes a few
extra seconds, clicks and possibly resources.

Hover tooltips work just fine here in my TB 2.0.0.9

Not here (2.0.0.9).  Even when a tooltip DOES display when hovering over
a newsgroup name (which only happens when there are any elipses
displayed, i.e. ...), it doesn't display the full name of the newsgroup.
  It just repeats the abbreviated name, when what the OP is asking for
is the FULL name, which I agree would be much more useful.

Hovering over a newsgroup name which is partially cut off in the middle
produces the popup of the full name in 2.0.0.9.  I am displaying the
full name, not abbreviated.
