cannot clear quick filter search parameter in Thunderbird

Posted

I cannot clear the contents of the filter on my inbox. I clear it, close TB and reopen and the filter search text is always there. Running latest version.

I did do a backup of my inbox to restore old emails and then again to restore to my current data. Have done this before but not with the current issue.

The parameter does not appear to be saved in an editable file - as far as I can see...

Suggestions appreciated. Thanks.

Try this: Help/Troubleshooting Information, click Open Folder to open the profile folder, close TB, delete session.json, restart TB. Any difference?
