I use Thunderbird 78.9.1 for Mac. (I am afraid to update, because the application keeps getting worse and worse.)
Exasperatingly, Thunderbird displays my messages in a gmail like format, which I always hated and which is why I don't use gmail.
I added and use the add-on Thunderbird Conversations, and have Thunderbird set to sort messages threaded.
For some exasperating reason, when I click on a message in a conversation, Thunderbird does not change the display of it to show the top of the message, but displays it somewhere in the middle, often making it look like it is the same exact message as the one above, forcing me to have to scroll around.
How do I get this ridiculous program to do what is normal and expect, and display messages when you click on them from the start?
Just as bad, Thunderbird seems, in these conversation threads, sometimes to show the most recent message at the top, and sometimes at the bottom. It would be stupid enough if it only showed them at the bottom (despite my descending preference setting). But that it can't even display messages according to a consistent rule is even more confusing.
To Thunderbird developers if you're listening: Have you ever heard the phrase, if it's not broke, don't fix it? Well, Thunderbird wasn't broke, at least in terms of its UI, many iterations ago. Since then, you have absolutely broken it.
