Some time ago, Thunderbird changed the whole organization of the email presentation. I am a long-time Thunderbird user who is used to the old screen and organization and I want to find out how I can get the old screen and organization back. I've attached a screenshot so you can see which version of Thunderbird is causing me so much trouble. Why change the traditional top-of-the-screen menu: (File, View,Tools, Help)? It was so logical and so easy. The movable mish-mash that exists now is driving me crazy.
For instance, I used an app under Tools that presorted certain emails and routed them to assigned folders. Not only has the sorting gone wrong, I haven't got the faintest idea where the app is? The emails that were once successfully sorted and rerouted are not working. And they're turning up as read in random folders.
Firefox also changes things that don't need to be changed, but my experience there is that an add-on or extenstion soon turns up that restores the features that users like.
In my preliminary search on my problem, there was not one article. In fact, my search came back with the message that no article appeared to match my query. I guess I must be the only person that is not happy with this interface.
Is there a way I can get the old version back? I'm sorry if I seem grouchy, but I am 83 and not being able to find what I need and what I used to have makes me a tad tetchy.
