Problems began with AOL mail, when I tried to send replies. I kept receiving repeated failures connecting with valid password. It seemed I could receive mail and send mail to trash or junk. I finally tried deleting and re-adding AOL mail, but now lost all folders but inbox and trash (all still available through FireFox browser though). I decided to just delete AOL from Thunderbird, Suddenly afterward, without touching anything related to Hotmail or Gmail, opening Thunderbird does nothing but clock trying to open Hotmail or Gmail inboxes. I have had no problems with those two, until today. I even turned off McAfee scanning to see if antivirus may be the cause suddenly today. I am at a loss as to what to do further. I can still get all my mail through the browser, but having all 3 mails in Thunderbird was convenient!

Now, it TRANSFERS ME TO THE TAB I JUST OPENED and I have to "go back".

What changed with rel 87.0? How can I go back to "staying on my tab" I am on? I don't see any "options".

I am new to Thunderbird world after being an Outlook user for nearly 25 years. I am liking it - especially the ability to customize the look and feel. That said, it's not for the faint at heart (my dad would not look kindly on the method for many customizations).

So, I have been able to update the userChrome.css file to allow for my own flavor of my mail folders.

One thing I canot get sorted though is what the syntax is for configuring the email account folder entries in the folder pane.

Right now, they all appear bold. Regardless of new mail, unread mail, any mail, etc. Some are blue (not consistent though from what I can see as to why), most are my theme default (white).

How do I change the font/display settings for these entries?

I've managed to sort out my other folder appears settings in userChrome.css, but cannot find anything for the account folder (apologies if I'm not referring to it in it's proper/common name - I'm new to Thunderbird).

In the attached image: - ignore the white box, I have that sorted. - turqouise box: why is this blue? - yellow boxes: why are they yellow?

How do I set the stylings for these items and more specifically, what are they called and what are their syntax names in css?

Thanks, House

As a new Thunderbird user (and old outlook user), I tried to tidy my gmail folders up.

Basically I dragged my important gmail folders to the default Inbox above the italic (Gmail). All worked fine until the next time I opened Thunderbird when I found the the folders that I had moved were gone/

I have looked in the imap folder on my C drive and they are not there either. To add to this they are no longer in Gmail. Seems that the are lost forever? 

However if I do a search within Thunderbird, the folder name appears on the left hand side with an email count that seems to reflect what's in the folder.

There are some important emails for me and I would like to recover them.

Is this possible and how ?

Appreciate any help

Recently some of my email, particularly from Apple and Prosper, appears with every character replaced with a d or weird punctuation. The message itself is intact, as I can view the text if I switch to simple HTML or plain text. I assume it's corruption in Thunderbird's UTF settings, but I'm not sure how to fix it. This is a new computer with a clean installation of Thunderbird 78.9.1.

Here is an example of what I'm seeing.

I have gone to the %appdata%\mozilla\firefox\profiles page until I'm blue in the face. I transferred a directory called "m80s2e9e.default" from the profiles directory on the desktop to the %appdata%\mozilla\firefox\profiles directory on the laptop but keep getting "Firefox profile cannot be loaded" error.

I just finished reading other people complaining about the popu to "purge deleted items"

I concur! in fact I find this so disgusting I am considering leaving thunderbird as a email client.

I reallly love that linux, mac, and windows ...no matter the OS I can get a same client, similiar experience (I use different laptops when as a tech repairing servers, to machines.

I have even myself had data lost, personal communications with family who died, things I quite cared about and (yes I have backups) but this push to make the client work better by limiting data, imposing order, and cleanliness is moronic..dangerous, and I do see that the quotas and options for data do not really work, this merely seems to help performance and keep most recent email but absolutely ruins any real longterm archiving (email is not meant to be longterm, or a "archive" ...I know I say this too) maybe we need to adjust software for the way people want it? the way people live? and not how we designate it to be used? (you do not like ,,write your own, I know).. if this trend to increase performance by cutting and crippling old email (what if I want 40 gig of email ?) .. maybe a better interface for holding, packaging and backing up, and restoring email?? heck a schedular to bump it out to google drive? I recently found a proggie that does this for my cellphone, contacts, sms, options, apps, which apps,,, gotta say that in thunderbird would be amazing? (restore from cloud backup, backup to cloud)?? I love thunderbird and hope some development can happen to smooth this out? Thankyou! (I used to try and use the gmail and yahoo folders like this also and leave only copies ,,,)

I know this is going to push the boundaries on the "stupid question" meter, but I've looked everywhere I know to look. I have a website that I completely trust (inasmuch as one can), and they've recently made some changes to their site that requires the site to reload for an animation. The problem is that FF interrupts with the banner (see image) about reloading and my only l option is the "Allow" or "Dismiss". One requires me to just keep pressing the "Allow" button, while the other stops me from seeing the reload. Is there a way I can stop this?

Thanks in advance, Dan
