Hello, I would like to suggest an improvement to this extension.
Adding to the option the possibility to make panes appearing/disappearing just hoovering over the split bars. In the option windows, wherever there are the option for toggling "click" and "double click" I suggest to add the option "hoover", so when the mouse will stay on the pane split for more than an amount of time (perhaps programmable) the affected pane will appear/disappear.
I had implement it several years ago. But it was not good function. Due to the 3 pane layout of Thunderbird, a cursor came across the splitter frequently and fired maximize event so many time. Many of them were not intended.
As you said, setting delay time seemed to solve the issue. But I needed to wait on the splitter for a while. When I shortened the delay, the issue above occurred again. Clicking the splitter was preferable.
For the reasons above, I don't plan to add it so far.
