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.

Thanks.

I'm in IT so know what I'm doing and have tried all your generic fixes-safemode, troubleshooting etc. Firefox needs to fix this is it fixed and if so please advise or should I just stop using Firefox?

I can see the encrypted usernames and passwords when I drag the login.json file to firefox, but they don't show up in the browser. There is only a key4.db file. I do not see any key3.db file. She is using version 78.10.1esr. What am I missing? There's no phone number for assistance. This is terrible for this law office!

Every time I open thunderbird I receive the following messages: first "Error With Account" password send failure, then after closing that one - I get the "Login to Account Failed" prompt.

Entering the password with the "enter new password" or using the Retry option results in the "Error with Account" message returning and the loop will continue until I click Cancel.

It seems like I'm also unable to send emails from this account while having this issue - is there any way for me to fix this?

When I use the quick filter toolbar to filter messages, this sometimes takes quite a while, which I don't mind in itself. However, while it is filtering, the list of messages scrolls up in reverse chronological order. Once it's done filtering, it snaps back to the most recent message at the bottom. Usually I'm looking for more recent messages with the filter, so needing to wait until it filters the entire inbox in order to click on the message I was looking for is slightly inconvenient. Is there any way to affix the most recent messages found by the filter at the bottom of the list while it is filtering the rest of the inbox?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Public key of someone else worked in TB68+Enigmail, but TB78 refuses to use it

I have sucessfully migreated from TB68+Eigmail to TB78.8.1 (64-Bit) running under Xubuntu 18.04.

Except for one counterpart, all keys could be migrated through the transitionla Enigmail plugin.

However, there is one public key, which TB refuses to use for encryption. Of course I don't know the intricacies if this particular key and how it was made. I can export it to a file *.public.asc and this file is 7,1kB big. When I want to write an email to a recipient, the first thing that happens on sending: "The message cannot be sent with end-to-end encryption because there are problems with the keys of the following recipients: ...".

The recipient has to deal with many others and of course has little inclination to distribute new public keys just because of me and fears decrypting problems with his other correspondence partners who continue to use his old key during the transition period which he fears to be quite long. I understand that. Unfortunately, the error message does not give the slightest hint as to what is wrong with the key in question in Thunderbird's sense. In any case, the key is still valid for years to come.

It is not offered for selection in the menu "Security OpenPGP message". However, if I click on one of the two buttons below it, TB knows the key related to the email address in question.

With the second option 'Search for new or updated key' TB also finds the key and I can also say that I have checked it and that the fingerprint is correct. But then I am returned to the "Security OpenPGP message", two dialogue windows before and with no key to select. I am caught in an endless loop of questions that do not help me.

Where can I see what condition this public key violates? Is there a URL where I can enter the text form of the key and it will tell mri why TB cannot cope with exactly this key. If I want to convince my correspondence partner to generate a new key pair, I must at least be able to tell him what is wrong with the one which he has given me before and which we used for quite some time!

BTW: If I have to send an unencrypted mail because I don't have no working public key I have to switch off encryption. But then I switch it off for all subsequent Emails. If I want to re-enable it, I have to send myself or someone else an encrypted email. That's not a very smart design decision in the UI! At least I expect a setting Always encrypt which possibly lets me change my mind for one particular email, but not for all subsequent ones!

Once again, the Top Sites that I have chosen on the the FF Home Page have shifted, or been removed. When I add them back on (and PIN) the site shortcut is there, but now I can't get the ICON that represents the Short Cut to appear and I have no idea how to find the URL for the ShortCuts, ie., the Twitter Bird that used to appear automatically, as an example.

I tried to take a Screen Shot, but the Screen Shot does not work on the FF Home Page.

Would it be too difficult to put a "Lock" button, similar to the Windows Lock for the Task Bar. PIN does NOT work.

I have not added any extensions or made any other changes that would affect this. Please advise how to correct this, and I don't want to have to follow directions that take me all over the place like go to file such and such and check such and such. That never works and usually ends up screwing up other issues. It worked once, I don't see why it doesn't work now.

Thank you for you time and I look forward to a SIMPLE solution.
