Major bug in Thunderbird

    I have been using Eudora for ages, and it works pretty well, but the
    search for messages is pretty clumbsy. I decided to give the latest
    version of Thunderbird a try. I likes some of it, but there is a
    major problem, which finally lead me to uninstall it, and just stick
    with Eudora. The problem is in the Addressbook. When I enter an
    entry into the addressbook, the entry box is so large that the OK
    bottom on the bottom is not visible. There is no way to scroll down
    to the bottom, so there is no way to save what I entered. I could not
    find a keyboard shortcut for that OK button either.

    I dont have the best eyesight, and have a 17inch monitor. So, I have
    my screen set to 600X800 resolution. Anything smaller I can not read
    without a magnifying glass. I did briefly resize the screen to see
    what was on the bottom for saving the entries, but there is no way I
    can leave my computer set that small, and I am not going to resize my
    screen resolution each time I add someone to the address book.

    Someone at Mozilla forgot to add scroll bars to that box. Then too, I
    dont need half the entries in that list. Name and email address would
    suffice. I surely dont need "organization", "place of work" and most
    other entries. I'll just stick with Eudora, but thought I'd toss this
    out here for reference. With any luck, someone from Mozilla will read
    this and realize they forgot the scroll bar. And for that matter, why
    not allow the user to select or reject the questions in the list.
    Removing several of them would make the list fit on the screen.

    did you ever think of just hitting the enter key? I
    guess not!
