It helps in the way that it allows you to grab the window and move it up
to reach the options on the bottom of the dialog. Of course this is just
a workaround but it helped me to adjust my settings on Thunderbird. To
find a real solution i opened a bug #665924. To be honest I don't really
know how a good solution could look like but I hope that we will come up
with a solution because I think this is really important for the
usability of an desktop environment.
