GMail Conversation View Publisher's description
from Jonathan Protzenko
Enables a GMail-like conversation view in Thunderbird
GMail Conversation View is a Thunderbird extension compatible with either CustomizeHeaderToolbar or CompactHeader (but it's not required to have them !).
The GMail Conversation View extension displays your own messages in thread summaries, just like GMail does. For messages that are not part of a thread (as Thunderbird defines it) yet, the extension will display the conversation for you automatically. See the screenshots for a brief overview of the features.
