Hi, This is my problems. I have some for years and some are new but it's a lot worse since v67.

Problems i have  :

* Folder don't show unread messages (folder name should be bold and display number of unread). The only way i found to fix this is to click on each folder one by one, or sometimes fix it (in properties window). Before v67 it occured each time i tried to search in messages accross many or all folders. Now it occur very often.

* Messages list ordering in a folder is lost (revert to date ASC). Before v67 it occured each time i tried to search in messages accross many or all folders. Now it occur very often.


* Folder don't display messages list in messages pane. It display nothing or same things as if i click on an account. Sometimes i click on another folder then i come back and it solve problem, sometimes not. Fix folder don't solve. This problem is now regular and much worse since v67.

* Messages are not filtered to folder with previous problem. This problem is now regular and much worse since v67.

Fix i tried :

  1. Start in safe mod  : Solved nothing.
  2. Fix folder in properties : Sometime it fix sometime not.
  3. Delete index files : Sometime it fixed before v67. Not retried since v67.
  4. Delete lot of old messages to lighten DB : Fixed some problems but not for long.

Important information : I have hundreds of folders and filters. Perhaps it play a role in this problem.


It's really a great pain to work like this. If someone have a real and definitive solution it would be great.

Regards.

Please note: if you have not already created a backup then I suggest you do this before compacting and then create a second backup after you have compacted and cleaned up global database.

Do you compact folders on a regular basis to remove all hidden marked as deleted emails?

After compacting I suggest you clean up the global search and get it rewritten by following instructions here:

note: whilst in 'profile name' folder deleting the global-messages-db.sqlite file as directed by link above, please also delete the panacea.dat file. Then start Thunderbird.

Hello Toad,

I've done all steps and it seems to work much more better. Db file size was reduced from 260Mo to 47 Mo.

Also even if i compacted folders manually (more or less rgularly) i have now activated auto compaction.

Thanks for help.

Hello, The fix was efficient for 25 days ...

Now problems occur again. Only 3rd problem is not back.

It's very annoying ... It seems that thunderbird can't really handle big DB ...
