A local folder with old emails has recently got corrupted. In the Profile folder the emails appear normally but within the TB program the emails all show the same content and a date of 1 Jan 1965. By doing a full Norton scan I discovered a couple of Trojans and another bug which have now been removed but the email problem is still there.

Should I do 'repair folder'?

I realize that the page I am using findbar to search from reloads and scrolls to the top using some Javascript so that when I return to the searched page from a popup, the last search item is no longer focused when I come back so (or press F3 or Ctrl G) e.g. if I found the 29th hit, then I have to click down 30 times to get to the next search hit.

I tried using add-in Luminous to disable the reload/scroll to top of the page that I am searching but failed. It is a complicated add-in.

Is there any way to jump say 10 hits down at once?

Install 32-bit TB over 64-bit TB and not lose anything?

New Thunderbird user. I installed TB on Win10 computer. Working fine but I need to try the 32-bit version because I have a 32-bit ERP ("enterprise resource planning") app that writes emails to the default, MAPI-compliant email client on my computer. That used to be old Eudora, which accepted the emails. Now it is 64-bit TB which rejects them. I am hoping 32-bit TB will accept these MAPI emails emanating from my old ERP.

If I uninstall 64-bit TB and install 32-bit TB, will my emails, address book, filters and the rest appear, as before, in 32-bit TB? Reluctant to start this process until I know with certainty.

I thank you in advance. -Matt.

When I am working in excel, word and other - I want to share the document that I am working on with other people via thunderbird. I assume it gives an error message - because I can hear a sound, but nothing happens.

Also I cannot share a file from within Finder

I need to start a new message and attach the file I want to send.

This is annoying and time consuming.

When I look in the system settings - extension - I can see that Thunderbird is there, but I cannot select it

Would appreciate help to get this fixed

At the top of Thunderbird, I have a search bar. I can also get to it with CTRL-K. I used to be able to search for a word or text within messages from there. However, when I try to search for something, it finds messages that are from 2018 and older. It doesn't find messages from 2022 or 2023 even though this word or phrase exists in the message. Why won't it find matches for anything newer than 2018? Thanks.

I think I typoed somehow. Thunderbird shows only my "delete" folder when I fire it up, which is as usual & the only usual thing empty. I find away to make it give me my other folders including the ones for received mail, sent mail, archived folders etc in Thunderbird back. Along the left side of the display are symbols that call up chat, calendar, address book, tasks & calendar as well as deleted folder. No Sent, etc folders. My call up symbols should to be on the top of the display. Consequently I can't read mail I've received or sent or archived & if it pulled down more from the internet, I can't read etc. Help! I'll check in for answers soon & uncheck the email when someone answers 'cause I can't get them right now. Sigh Keetbird (the technoklutz)

Yesterday, all of a sudden I can't login to my Thunderbird account at sannies@mailfence.com. Error message shows, "Login to server imap.mailfence.com with username sannies failed." I tried again and got the following error message, "Cannot connect to the server. You may have exceeded the number of connections to the server" I'm not sure I understand that. I have one email account for Mailfence. However, there may be an old profile somewhere on my computer that hasn't been used since I move a year ago. What does "number of connections" to the server mean if it doesn't mean when I'm connected to the server? Nothing has changed about my username and password. I tried the suggestions on the Help site. They did not work. My security shows that Thunderbird is not blocked. Windows Firewall shows that it is not blocked. OP is Windows 10 (updated Jan 2023. Security suite is Avast One (updated Jan 2023). Server is Mailfence. I use the latest version of Thunderbird. BTW - Your "Email me when someone answers the thread" does not work when I check it.

MAIN QUESTION How can I get rid of the ugly light-brown background in some incoming messages? All I want is a white background in incoming messages (both plain-text and HTML, unless the HTML code asks for a different background).


Thank you (after 10+ years) for finally making the font size adjustable in the folder and message pane. Also for finally fixing not easily being able to get out of numbering when forcing blank lines between numbered paragraphs.

I was actually very happy with version 60.x.x because I had a set of add-ons that working around most of the bugs and had an email client that did what I wanted. With the migration to the new add-ons internals, I lost most every behavior I needed/enjoyed.

In closing, if I can have a default white background/canvas on incoming email messages, I'll stay with T-bird. If not, I'm ready to give up on Thunderbird (after using it for 15 years) and trade it for the the boring stability of Outlook.

I know you are volunteer organization. So thank you for trying so hard for so many years.

(Don't know if logging into Mozilla gives you my email address. I'd prefer not to search for your reply, so I'd really appreciate a link sent to xxxx@gmail.com.

The best to everyone, jeff

If I search for emails I get a timeframe display and can see the first few lines. Clicking show as a list gives me a blank list. Screen grabs attached. When I click on the email to read from the timeframe view it there is nothing there (same blank as if I do a list view). The email is not there - it is a blank space. I have tried troubleshoot mode and also repaired. Still the same problems.

It is not the case that I have deleted emails... there are some vital emails there which I really want to keep... ones from a lawyer for instance. But I cannot access them. No idea how to solve this. If I can't see my emails I cannot use Thunderbird as an email client any more: being able to find your emails is essential - and not being able to access them is existential for the software.
