As the title suggests, I want to remove "Torbirdy" text from Thunderbird's GUI(bottom right).

If the attacker take a screenshot of my desktop, he will notice I am using Thunderbird "with Tor".

How can I remove this?

Sounds like a good idea in theory but I need to think about how we can do it without removing it for all users. Let me know if you have any ideas.

By different modes, like for Tor Browser (#17103)?

Add "Misc." tab in "TorBirdy Preferences".

[X] Show "TorBirdy" status in bottom-left corner

if the user deselect it, remove it.

I do see a use case for this and that is when you don't want Thunderbird to show that you are using TorBirdy. On the other hand, I think it's important to remind the user that TorBirdy is enabled and since there is no other way than the status bar, I think we should display this message.
