I have 5 email accounts, and 5 Account Settings. My SOP is to have each on its own screen, with Inbox and Sent as tabs.

Is there any way to have that be my startup layout? I.e. start TB, all the screens appear.

Thanks

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?

I would like to start thunderbird with a command line/embedded switch identifying an attachment so the "new message" window starts with the file already attached. TB/Moz help has been spectacularly lacking in information on this topic. Has anyone done this, if so how?

Thanks,

Last night I "losted" 2 emails from my Sent folder on a Dell laptop in tablet mode, running Windows 10 and what I think is the laresr version of Thundrrbitd. In both cases, the email msg was open. I clicked in the text portion of the msg, pressed CTRL+ A to highlight the text (prior to copying it). In both cases, the entire email vanished. I have lookrd in all Thundrrbird's folders & the Windows recycle bin. Nothing. GONE. I have left laptop running. My account is a POP; the internet provider doesn't archive sent msgs. I know the date that emails were sent & the recipient. Is there a Thundrbird archive or hidden file on my laptop that I could access? Any idea why this happened? I am wondering if it is a bug connected to using the laptop in tablet mide. Thank you.

I'd like to be able to change my keyboard shortcuts for Firefox, but I don't see how to do that. Mouse buttons don't work at all, and ctrl-shift-tab / ctrl-tap don't do what I want them to.

I see no way to customize shortcuts, they seem baked into the source code.

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?

I do not use the majority of keyboard controls in Firefox-- only Ctrl+F. Lately, I've noticed that using Ctrl+I in editor windows also pops up the Page Info window, which I have never used on purpose and am perfectly comfortable accessing via Firefox's menubar.

I have been searching for over an hour, and every Firefox add-on that I can find to fix this problem has been removed.

Ideally, I would like to be able to configure all of my keyboard shortcuts, but practically I will settle for being able to disable Ctrl-B, Ctrl-I, and Ctrl-U.

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.
