I've noticed that Mozilla Thunderbird looks different with Windows Aero enabled than it does without it.

Thunderbird 31.5.0 with the unmodified Windows 2000-style classic theme.

Thunderbird 31.5.0 with Aero

 

Notice the white/light grey colour on the Aero title bar instead of the usually dark blue/black.

 

Thunderbird seemingly has different appearances depending on what visual style you are using. I prefer the appearance you get with the classic theme, and I want to know if it's possible to make it use that appearance under Windows Aero.

 

OS is 32 bit Vista Business with Service Pack 2.

Did I read it correctly that you don't want Tbird to change when you enable Aero?

There seems to be a few different add-ons for Tbird that have this or similar effect. Here is one I found:

Here is the search terms I put into google:

Yes, that is exactly what I mean. I tried the Ignore Aero add-on. It definitely works, but not quite the way I want it to. Instead of just ignoring Aero, it actually applies a custom theme that mimics that of Thunderbird 3.x, which is nice, but ultimately it's not what I want right now.

 

I also tried:

 

 - NoGlass - Only removed the dark blue/black Aero colour from the title bar.

 

 - Various others that weren't as close.

 

 - xpDefault -  Closest I've gotten so far, just missing the dark blue/black colour from the title bar

That is exactly how I want it, minus the pale blue where the dark blue/ black Aero should be.

 

See how the pale blue thing doesn't fit properly around the minimize, maximize and close buttons? The add-on is advertised as being for Windows 7, which has bigger window control buttons. Does that mean it's an image of sorts that can be removed?
