why does new thunderbird open two copies of every message, one duplicated supposedly from me

Posted

When I click to open a message, the message opens alright, but so does a second copy with "reply to" being my own account. I only need one copy of a new message, and preferably with "reply to" showing the sender!

Thanks very much, sfhowes. I apologize that i didnt see the thread shfhowes referenced, but indeed the thread does not offer a solution. I have no add-ons enabled, so I cant turn them off and restart TB. I am running an auto-updated 64.4.0 (64-bit) on a Mac OS 10.12.6 Sierra, and the problem only started when TB auto-updated...

Users aren't expected to follow, or even be aware of, discussions on bugzilla, but it appears this bug has been sufficiently confirmed that I expect a fix will be in TB 60.5. In the meantime, a workaround might be to use the keyboard shortcut for opening messages, Ctrl+O or Command+O (mac), or Open from the context menu.

got it - thank you again! I did join bugzilla (add to the pile of unhappy users?) - it is indeed when I hit "return" to open the mail that it happens. Also doesn't happen all the time - what seems to set it off is an email from within my organization...

This was helpful. Now if I could just get my brain and fingers working in unison. I am so used to double clicking or hitting enter on the number pad that it is proving to be a hard habit to break. I am hoping that the next update will correct this problem and I can revert to my old ways! Thank you for your help.
