Email not working correctly on M1 Mac

more options

I have a new M1 Ultra based Mac Studio. Using the latest Thunderbird 91.10.0. When I click on a email the mail is supposed to open in the bottom pane. Now, unless I restart T-bird several times the email text or other content does NOT open. Also when I select a different email, the content pane does not update. This is a real problem.

Does anyone else have this. Is Mozilla aware of this issue. I have completely reinstalled the app and reset all the server info, but the problem persists. This never occurred on my older MacPro with the Intel Chip even though on the same OS release: Mac OS Monterey 12.4

Hello there bob. We have read your message. We try to help you.


Your content pane does not update. Did you try to update manually ? The Thunderbird software itself?

Does your inbox pane stays blank or grey?

Installing the new fresh version of Thunderbird it automatically overwrites the old update.

If you do not want to install the new version try to right click the folder and select properties and then the repair button to re-index your mail.

That seems to repair your folder. There are other option s if this not work.

To delete the msf.files for the inbox. The map is on your ssd and try to turn out your Thunderbird software before deleting. It requires a restart after deleting this files on your Apple machine. It automatically repair itself.

You can take backups if it s important to you.


Greetings Firefox volunteer.
