Thunderbird 78.5.1

After installing and enabling CardBook v54.4 when typing a name in any of the addressee boxes there is no drop down generated to pick from. Disabling CardBook fixes this. I didn't see anything in Options for Thunderbird or CardBook that would control this.

Am I missing something?

When writing an email, I was able to select "Customize From Address" in From dropdown list. A warning box would open with a warning that not all servers allow custom from addresses. In that warning box, there was a check box that said 'don't show this message again.' I checked the box, but now when I choose "Customize From Address" the selection is still in the list, but can't be selected.

How do I reset the setting to again show the warning message and re-enable custom from address?

Unified Inbox is not, why not? Globalized inbox is like a lunch of alphabet soup, in three bowls when you're allergic to vowels, why is this?

W 10, Gmail IMAP and a 365 IMAP. Unified inbox puts to inboxes under each other with the Local folder inbox below that, it's empty nothing was unified, this is useless.

Creating a Global inbox works for inbox only under Local Folders at the bottom but it is mixed in with the other local folders some of which cannot be globalized, one of which is called Inbox, there are two inboxes and the only one you can delete is the one you want, err just created as a matter of fact.

They can't even be moved to reorganize for a more prominent position. In that you cannot globalize all the folders you want down there, you cannot collapse the folders in the above two accounts without losing access to the folders that cannot be globalized. The frustration and time consumed on one this is worse than useless, what gives? The left side bar has been a mess for years, fix it. If you want a donation finish the product, do the work man, plain and simple.

TB displays some of my folders with the correct 'folder' icon and others are displayed with the 'sent' icon. Spent about an hour yesterday adding new folders, moving messages to those folders (This is an IMAP account, so this had to be done in my synced Webmail portal) just to have my folders show up as folders. I did this with all add-ons off. When I subsequently turned on my add-ons the corrected folders displayed correctly. But today the anomalous behavior is back. Anyone run into this and have a solution?

Opening the Add-ons Manager, Preferences, Extensions & Themes I have the standard mode enabled. Activation of the Dark and/or Light themes however shows no effect .

Note: Changing Windows setting and selecting in Windows the dark mode for Apps, then Thunderbird turns into a dark layout. But, also in this set up, under the Add-ons Manager of Thunderbird , the standard mode remains the only mode to be active. Dark and Light mode are shown but cannot be enabled in Thunderbird.

I have now created a second Thunderbird profile. In this new profile the dark and light mode can be enabled by Thunderbird. In the standard profile (the old one) however the problem remains.

Question: is any specific file which I could copy from the new profile and paste it in the old profile to restore the Dark/Light theme functionality also for this old profile?

Does anyone know the status of the ADDON "Close tab on ESC"? It no longer works on Thunderbird 78.5.0. I read old discussions about making this an "enhancement" in Thunderbird and it was decided that it was not going to happen with no really good reason not to. Then the addon came out and worked fine for two year stints at a time, until new versions of Thunderbird came out that rendered the addon obsolete. That happened with 78/5.0 for me. Anyone know if this will be fixed? In the mean time, I have found that CTRL - F4 will close a tab if anyone else is having the same problem. ESC sure is more convenient as a one finger "exercise," especially with where the ESC key is located.

Rant: Why did someone think it was a good idea to put a massive logo at the top of the home page ? It serves no practical purpose and it forces link icons down so you now have to scroll "!!"!! There's always ******* one isn't there !!? - someone with a crap idea who thinks the world needs to see it. How many hrs worldwide is going to be wasted today by people like me trying to undo this crud ? This isn't the first time some ignorant little ******* has forced their crap on firefox end users.

I finally migrated from Eudora to Thunderbird and wish I had done so a long time ago.

I'm finding myself constantly closing out the app when all I want to do is to close the message I have open. I keep getting drawn to the upper right "X" rather than the message tab "X". I'm sure I will break this habit eventually but is there any other way to protect me from myself? Can each message open in its own window rather than stacking in the main window?

Hi, I just updated to Firefox Developer 83.0b4 and the two-finger scroll sensitivity has been drastically reduced with no clear way to reconfigure it. I've spent the past 30 mins tweaking scroll settings in `about:config` (restarting FF after each value change) to no avail. In fact, it doesn't even appear that enabling/disabling `general.smoothScroll` or `general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel` have any noticeable effect, let alone the many other options listed. Are there any pages that describe the myriad options in `about:config` so that I can take a more measured approach to troubleshooting this issue?

What changed? And why? Chrome did this same thing at v68 without ever providing any way to configure it and FF has been my main browser since. I'm just trying to understand how such a significant input change can happen overnight without any explanation or any way to fix it.

I can't work with the tag display in the new version of Thunderbird. It's too strong to have the whole line coloured. it used to be the letters only. I returned to Thunderbird 68.

Is there a way to modify how the tags appear?

Is there a way to stop Thunderbird asking me to update?

I have the Add on "Tag toolbar" which works a treat in TB 68 as I don't need to open the email to tag it. With TB 78 I have to open the email to choose.

Help. Thank you
