continue in your original thread /questions/1379471

Hi: I've used all previous Windows versions together with 4-6 years of using steadily (and ONLY) THUNDERBIRD Online Email Account but I've NEVER experienced this unexpected issue which has happened just a few days ago: during my daily usage of THUNDERBIRD-Email Account, I've noted one day that the INCOMING messages started to get collected in the 'TRASH' folder instead of in the originally-set 'Inbox' ...and unfortunately - have no clue what has caused this problem. I've thoroughly checked the SERVER settings but did NOT find any wrong data: according to the Email-Account setting it states to store ALL incoming mail in the 'INBOX' folder (as is usually and commonly done) ...

I've checked the Properties of the INBOX & TRASH folders and it is stated there that '....the Folder Index (.msf) file becomes damaged and by using the 'Repair Folder' Option may fix these issues' ...however, I'm afraid to use it NOT knowing if it could complicate rather than fix this problem, however - has anyone a 'good experience' with using this 'Repair Folder' Option in the INBOX & TRASH folders ...?

I've posted this message in the THUNDERBIRD Forum about 3 weeks ago but nobody could offer any effective help and advice how to resolve this rather not very complex issue so - I was wondering if there is ANYONE from the MOZILLA Programmer's development group who should be definitely knowledgeable how to eliminate this Software issue (bug) ...?!? Any help from anyone who is familiar with this issue and could help me to resolve it would be greatly appreciated - THANKS! ...Tony H.

Hello,

When I select text in Firefox the selection is not highlighted. The selection itself does work (e.g. deleting a selected word) but is not visible. The problem occurs in all fields where text can be entered, so the URL space, the search field but also text field on a page like this one. The strange thing is that the problem also occurs in Thunderbird.

I am using Ubuntu 18.04.6 LTS, Firefox 99.0 and Thunderbird 91.8.1

In the last two days all of my messages have been immediately marked as read (i.e., unread messages do not show up in bold). In options I have chosen 'Automatically mark messages as read after displaying for 10 seconds', and in the past this has meant the incoming message showed as bold until I opened and read it, and that the main display indicated how many unread messages I had. I am using Firefox 78.13.0 in Windows 10, but this did not happen after an update: it simply happened overnight. Just now I sent a message from my Gmail account to my Firefox address and have not opened it in Firefox: on my iPad it shows as unread, but on my PC it shows as read, even though I haven't touched it. This problem applies to all three mailboxes in the Firefox account: when I look at the main Firefox display, there is no bold to indicate that any of the mailboxes have new messages.

 This is very annoying in terms of business--I can't immediately see whose messages I have not yet read, and whether any new messages have arrived in a particular mailbox since I last opened Firefox (it is too distracting to keep it open all the time).  Many thanks for any help.

I'm just going round and round in circles here, I click 'Get help', it links to all product forums, I get to the Tbird forum but there is NOTHING on there to click to ask a question, only to answer questions, so I've had to come here to ask...

My install of Tbird updated. Now it is not removing junk mail.

All the settings are correct; it SHOULD be moving the junk mail to the junk folder. It IS recognizing junk as junk, but my only option is to mark as "not junk". It IS junk, so that doesn't help.

I've tried, repeatedly, clicking "run filters on folder" but the junk is still sitting there. It's NOT marked as junk, unless you open it and then it has the 'not junk' option.

Normal non-junk mail is normal.

Is there any way of reverting back to an earlier version that works? I should add I have had this problem with Tbird before and it's sort of, somehow, sometimes, fixed itself, sort of thing. I'd like to take action and fix this, now.

What to do?

Under tools-accounts-junk settings it says to move all junk mail to junk folder. It IS set for that, it just doesn't actually do so.

When clicking the button "Thunderbird" for opening the email-browser appears a massage-box containing this description: XML-Verarbeitungsfehler: Nicht definierte Entität Adresse: chrome://messenger/content/messenger.xhtml Zeile Nr. 1636, Spalte 9:

       <toolbarbutton id="appmenu_customize"
</pre>

^

After appearance of this message it is unpossible to close it as well as procede in opening the Thunderbird-email-browser. All trials to restart the process or even to restart the operating system lead to the similar result. A reinstallation of Thunderbird-software did not lead to any change. For I can not use the email-browser, what means neither receiving nor sending of emails I would like to ask for instruction and support.
