I've read a lot of help on this - almost all of them say, "As you have discovered there are three visible TO/Cc/Bcc fields..." and: " type or select email address and press enter to move to next TO field".

None of that works. I have only ONE visible "To" field. It has no controls to change it to a Cc or Bcc one. There is a "CC" or "BCC" option beside the "From" field. Pressing Enter at the end of an address does precisely nothing.

Another copy of TB on another computer has all the features you gaily point to - but mine doesn't. Where do I find it?

Hello guys, I'm a thunderbird fanatic and use it even at work managing 10+ accounts. Up to Thunderbird 68, all was super fine:

The massive profile with 60+ folder was well organized with a handful of incredible add-ons to: - color folders - customize color account background - manage folder sorting The workflow was smooth and very productive: the folder colored to my like, the new email received were visible at a glance in the related folder by simply browsing and detecting the different accent in the folder name, and so on.

I always loved updates and kept the auto update on... until yesterday when my 68 has been migrated automatically to 78 !

No one of the necessary add-ons works anymore! No one of those fantastic the developer is anymore interested in upgrading them (changes are too frequent, and need to invest too much time to upgrade them) The interface is to uniform, I cannot customize colors in the same efficient way.... If I want the same 60+ nested folder sorting, I need to rename all of them... When a folder receives a new email the accent color (sort of bold blue) is nearly same as that of a folder with unread email (bold black)... Oh my god, what a mess !

Since no add-ons are available to re arrange the profile like it was with Thunderbird 68, my only option is to roll-back to 68... and stay there until the necessary add-on will get back to 78 (if any).

Do you know how I can convert back my profile just upgraded to 78 back to 68 ???

Please Please Please, help me ! Pietro

Computer is at work, where several computers are connected to one server.

Computer I used updated to Thunderbird 78.2.2 on Monday (2020/09/14). After that update, I am unable to ready any emails. I have a green progress bar on the bottom right of screen that is full. I have a message that the computer is 'connected'. Selecting an email does not display it in the Message panel, and double-clicking email to open in another tab gives an empty tab.

I am able to access emails through Thunderbird on other computers, so that must mean a problem with the setting on my computer and not the server... right?

When I read an email, there used to be a 'Next' and 'Previous' email button on the top line. This enabled me to simply move from one email to the next. In Thunderbird version 78.2.2 (32-bit), those buttons have vanished. The only way to move on to the next email in the inbox is to close it and go back to the inbox and open the next one. This is an annoying change, and I hope you can re-instate those buttons.

I have been happily using FF for android as my default browser on my tablet for some years. It recently updated to 79.0.2, which I am busy adjusting to!

Could the development team please consider adding "android" to the extensions library search filter "operating systems". At the moment the only options are "all", "windows", "mac os" and "linux".

Most of the extensions/add-ons previously compatible are no longer compatible for this latest update, but I have not yet found a way to find out which ones are compatible. Clicking on 'add-ons' in the menu only gives a list of 6 "recommended" add-ons. I have been wasting a lot of time browsing the FF extensions library, finding one that looks interesting, trying to install it only to be notified that "this extension is not compatible with android". Adding "android" to the extensions library "operating systems" filter would avoid this time-wasting, and should (I hope) be relatively easy to implement. I suspect that many other users others would find this helpful.

Anyway, my thanks to you all for your hard work on this great browser!

So, I just upgraded to version 78.1 and I just hate the way it looks. The old folders used to be yellow and distinct. The new folders are white with a blue outline of the same color as the rest of the theme. I hate that. It all just looks the same, as if they are trying to hide everything with the same color. This may be the "Modern Trend" but I hate the modern trend. I like things to stay the same. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Is there a way to get the old look back? I looked through the addon themes, but there are only three that are compatible with my version and they are all crazy stuff that I hate worst than the new default theme.

I do web design. And my problem is that I used to click the refresh button in firefox and it would instantly load an updated version of the pages I was working on. But now it does the exact same thing I hate about chrome. It loads pages using cached css and javascript files. And the only way to view the updated websites is to go private mode which is very annoying. Is there an option to get around this? Or it's a software problem?

Since the latest versions of Firefox--say, the last month or so--Firefox continues to override and change my preferred file association for pdf files. I have gone in through the Windows 10 Start/Settings/Apps to change the file association for pdf files to my Adobe Acrobat Pro, but within a few hours Firefox automatically changes it back, system-wide, to Firefox. This is quite frustrating, to say the least. I have tried the Options within Firefox, and choose (as I do for most files) to "Ask Me First" upon opening, but don't find any further file association info there. Nevertheless, even when viewing my files within Windows Explorer (File Explorer), I cannot keep my chosen files association of Adobe Acrobat Pro, as it continually reverts to Firefox.

How can I disable this behavior of Firefox 80.0.1 that is overriding my preference? Or is it a bug that can be fixed?
