  • Using beginForward function with a forwardInline type and details argument specified has been fixed.

windows

browserAction

  • The setLabel(details) and getLabel(details) functions have been added. It is now possible to set a label value different from the title (which is used as tooltip text). The label can be set to an empty string to make the action button not have a label at all. If the toolbar is set to text-mode only (no icons), the action button label uses the title as fallback, in case an empty label has been set.

    This change has been backported to Thunderbird 78.6.0.
