Hello. As I see from other discussions topics, threaded folders are NOT popular. PLEASE can you offer an option, across the whole of Thunderbird, for NOT having emails threaded. Thuis INCLUDES, when using the Search features, where the reults appear as threaded, which is counter intuitive when searching for one particular message.

Using the latest version (127.0.2; installed from Play store today, on a fresh Android install), any non-English site I visit I get the nagging popup asking me if I want to translate.

'Never translate this site' works, and 'Never translate Dutch' (and presumably other languages as well) too (so at least I can workaround it, but 'Always offer to translate' off will still nag about translating sites, so is bugged.

And I still have the translate button taking up space in the URL bar. How do I remove it?

Hey,

I recently downloaded Thunderbird because my mail service prodiver has added ads into the desktop application. Migrating everything over was a piece of cake, but I'm running into two issues now: 1) When I open thunderbird, the space to the right of the message column is filled with a request to donate money. I would like for that place to be blank when I'm not displaying an email there. 2) Once I have opened an email, I cannot close it again. I can replace it with a different email, but only way to have all of them closed is to close Thunderbird entirely and start it up again.

In the previous application, I could close emails by hitting ESC on my keyboard. Is there a way to have this functionality in thunderbird too?

Thanks in advance for your efforts!

Whenever I log on to my bank's web site, I'm sent an audible signal that invites me to start a chat session with a bank agent. The problem is that the audible alert is so loud that it startles me. This is very annoying. I called the bank's help line and was told there was no way they could adjust the sound volume. I would like to know if it's possible for Firefox to decrease the volume for that web site.

I have seen some posts on this request but unsure if anything has been done to add/use if already there a feature to make an email account "inactive". I have several email accounts set up in Thunderbird but do not use them much but don't want to delete the account but don't want to have to have them active either. Any update on this issue is appreciated.

Hi I am dying to convert my thunderbird email into a kanban board in thunderbird and then access the emails there as I need to work with them. This will allow to automatically see which emails are still to be done etc but in a very visual way instead of just scrolling through my email tags.

Does this exist and if so please how do I find it?

if it does not exist could the developers please kindly consider adding it into future thunderbirds?

I just added [and "Apply View"] to this question. -mr

Does "Apply columns" work in Tbird 115.12.2 (64-bit)?

I searched 'Thunderbird Solutions' for "Apply columns", then read several of the 156 results, and read the Help Article "Message List Columns" ... but the results were [imo] not encouraging :-(

Does "Apply columns to" really work as described in Help Article "Message List Columns" ?

Is "Apply columns" a known flakey feature ??

Have I got a corrupted profile ???

Or ????

Thank you, --Mike Ramey

I recently patched to Thunderbird 115.12.2, and discovered that threading has been turned on everywhere. Reading through the forum, I disabled threading by default in the config editor via mailnews.default_view_flags, and manually went through every folder setting "View" -> "Threads" -> "Ignore threads".

However, it appears that disabling threading is only honored for the inbox. Setting "ignore threading" on any other folder is ignored, and Thunderbird continues to thread.

For example here is the "Sent Mail" folder with "ignore threads" set (see screenshot) and it still displays with threading. Apparently, "ignore threading" only works with the inbox. I would like threading disabled on all folders, not just the inbox. If there was a switch to disable threading universally, that would be easiest for everyone who dislikes threading.

Thanks in advance. John N. jnyhuis@gmail.com

Several upgrades ago, I created message filters in Thunderbird to forward emails received from specific senders to other email accounts that needed to get copies. While running version 115.12.1 32bit on Win 10, I had need to delete one of the filters. When I went to Menu Bar > Tools > Message Filters the Message Filters window does NOT show ANY filters regardless of which account (I have 20 and checked each) is selected. I have also searched my HDD, located all copies of msgFilterRules.dat and opened ones that might be related to the account in question. ALL of the msgFilterRules.dat files that I checked had only 2 lines.... version="9" and logging="no", except for the problem account where I had turned on logging and the .dat file showed "yes". I also went to yahoo and checked to see if I might have created the filter on the server side. However, according to yahoo, they discontinued the forwarding filter in 2021, so it's not happening there. I need to know how to find the forwarding filters and edit them.
