Hello, I user thunderbird for several email accounts and while it mostly works i do run into some oddities.

In the Tools-Message Filters menu i have many things sorted there.

I have noticed 2 issues: 1) Filters that have been in place for months will randomly stop working, i can rerun the filter manually and nuttin, and a week alter it starts sorting again. I verify the email address and check and it's correct and matches the rule.

2) Yesterday i made a new rule to a new subfolder. It was regarding some class work I had done, and I wanted all things from the email address there to be moved to that folder. I copied the email address into the filter and it does nothing.

For most of my rules I have checked "Manually Run", "Getting new email: Filter before junk classification", and "Periodically, every 10 minutes" but only some dont work.

Im not even sure how i start troubleshooting this, any advice?

Thanks all!

Hi, Not sure if relevant, but using windows 10 and Thunderbird 91.2.0 (64-bit). I have set my Account Settings preferences: Account Settings > Composition & Addressing. Selected "start my reply above the quote" and "place my signature below my reply (above the quote). And yet, my signature (which happens to be an image file) persistently appears under the quote and not underneath my reply. Tried restarting Thunderbird after making the changes, but nope, nothing's changed. Please enlighten me. What am I missing here and how can I stop this? Anybody? Thanking you.

It looks like I'm not the only one. I want to make yahoo my search engine but it's no longer an option in FF tools. I don't like google but even Duck Duck Go, reverts to Google. What's going on? I know I can add Yahoo or DDG as an add-on but that brings me to yahoo's website. All I want is for the yahoo search engine which used to be in tools and is no longer there. I've been using the yahoo search engine for years and about 5 months ago or so, after an update it disappeared. Even though I have Duck Duck Go as my default search engine, doing a search it changes to google. Please don't shove google down our throats. BTW, restoring doesn't help and I use the search bar for searching, not the address bar.

Accidentally removed ATTACH and SEND icons from Write Email function

After automated update to Thunderbird 91 from the 7x version, running Windows 10, was trying to return to the pre-version 91 ATTACH file display that had the files listed vertically to the upper right corner of the screen, instead of the current horizontal display at the bottom of the page. Then I accidentally did a very bad thing. I right clicked in the space near the ATTACH icon on the upper right corner of the screen. I then unclicked the check mark on what was probably the second entry of the list of what I think was four choices, which I thought was ATTACH related. What it did instead was to entirely remove the ATTACH icon. Even worse, it removed the SEND icon. I can now compose emails, but cannot attach any files. Or worse, I cannot send the composed email to anyone! I have taken screenshots of my Write email screen and my Main screen of Thunderbird. You can see these at https://heart-test.com/thunderbird/ where you see the .jpg versions of these screens, or you can also see .bmp or .png formats if you prefer. I'd appreciate any assistance you could provide, since I cannot send any email at the moment. Please email me at stan@coeh.com or DrH@coeh.com as those will get my immediate attention. If you would like to have me call you, please email me a phone number to call. Thanks for your assistance. Stan (Note: I had to upload the screenshots this way since "Add Images" icon on this website just gives me a "spinning circle" graphic but does not finish.)

How do I revert back to the functionality of 78, 91 is just plain awful, icons have changed, my task bar keeps advising me how many emails. Attachments are at the bottom???? seriously?

Hoping to have: OLD icons on tabs (NO counter) PDF opens in Acrobat ONLY Attachments are back at the top.

Can I revert back and prevent it from auto upgrading???

If I can't I'll have to leave Thunderbird after almost 20 years, which sucks. This is bad.
