I am using a new freshly installed Win10. Since copying the profile from my work PC was not an option, I decided to just set up all my mailboxes from scratch. The first day, everything was fine, but starting from the next day thunderbird started crashing all the time. It will load, partially check the emails and then crash.

I waited for the latest update - didn't fix it. I removed the old profile, installed and set everything up again - and got the very same behavior. My thunderbird doesn't last even 30 sec working.

There are no addons or dictionaries. It's totally clean. There are only 3 mailboxes with a lot of emails in them. Please, advise how to fix it.

Thanks in advance!

After updating from Thunderbird 60 to 78 (first to 68 and then to 78) I have a visible window title bar (see screenshot: red area). When creating a clean profile then the window title bar does not exist. I have already tried to reset the UI but that did not help.

How can I fix this?

My problem has changed. My question is on here but I can't find from early yesterday. When I logged on about 8 am yesterday Thunderbird started some activity which I thought was update. After some minutes I realized it was "loading" it. I had done nothing but start the computer from a cold shut down earlier. I am talking about 3 am until 8 am approximately. When it stopped "working" it stopped on the Privacy setting page. Couldn't see how to get it off so ignored it because I had a bigger problem. Here let me say that for about a week I have been expecting an answer to 2 important emails that I have not gotten. It is a very sensitive answer so I don't want to call & say did you get these emails. Now I can't find them in any folder in Thunderbird.

The other major problem: I was chosen to participate in this college election poll re Facebook. I loaded their software and did the first. Then chosen for the second and loaded their second software and completed their different kind of poll -- with more to follow. I wrote them an email with a question about the second poll and they responded but mentioned that I had not loaded the second software on my computer yet. Well, I knew I had because I had taken the poll. It doesn't really matter about the poll but it does matter about things missing. So I start looking for the download when that is unsuccessful, I start back on Thunderbird by examining every folder.

You need to understand that I am in NO way a techie. I am also incredibly busy this week and for the next two so I have not been able to spend as much time as I would like on this. Busy means 14 to 16 hour days and for this 80 year old woman that is busy.

On the left panel of Thunderbird I discovered I have at Level 1 my 3 email addresses and the usual folders AND at Level 1 something called "Instructional" with a picture of a computer in front of it and an Inbox at Level 2 under it. Plus all kinds of folders under that which are ones I did create. In this Inbox are emails addressed to the email address of the one physically above it -- not all in either inbox and apparently in no particular order.

I read a page that was referenced in Help and it was VERY long and very techie. If that is going to be the answer for me to try. Just tell me someone to pay to fix it and what to tell them is wrong. NO WAY on earth can I do it nor do I want to try. My 80 year old retired teacher brain doesn't want to go there

I tried to take a screen shot using the instructions on the Mozilla Introduction page to this community. However they do not work if that shot needs to be of the Thunderbird Panel. It has to have the Screen Shot Button on the page. Thunderbird does not that I could find.

Now I have to go put on my other hat. I will check back as soon as possible.

Be kind. Remember I am 80 years old and I put up with high school kids for 45 years.

This seems to be an old problem but nobody else has reported this in Thunderbird 78.2.2 as far as I can see. Trying to do MailMerge, which I have used literally hundreds of times in earlier versions, I put {{Email}} (or whatever) in the To: field, and it says:

No recipients were specified. Please enter a recipient or newsgroup in the addressing area.

This is obviously nonsense - the whole point is that MailMerge INSERTS the email addresses. If this can't be fixed, Thunderbird will be useless to me.

The mail provider I have been using is going out of business. I want to keep all the mail currently in TB. I have signed up with a hosted mail provider. I don't know what needs to be done. I will only have the one provider. Is there a way for me to have the new mail go into the existing inbox and all of my folders. The information I have read seems to imply there will be more than one provider. Under those circumstances the suggested answer is to either use unified views or a global inbox. It would seem to me this would not be applicable to my situation. Would someone give me an action plan please?

I have the firefox browser in dark mode, and all my bookmarks/folders on the toolbar are white. It would be easier if they stood out a little easier to identify them with color (such as say trip advisor is in green so I can pick it out easier). Usually there's an icon before the name for most links (but not if it's a folder), such as google maps has a rainbow G in a white circle. If I could add an icon before the name of the link that would be great, but it would be even better if the words on different links could be another color.

Is this possible?

Thanks!

Hi everyone, i have a website where i have to delete a certain element in order for the website to display correctly. I am doing this by right-clicking on the element, selecting "Inspect Element" and then i simply click delete node and close the object browser. Since i visit that website regularly i wonder if there is any way to make the object browser to remember that i want that element to be deleted on every visit to this website? Or do i need an Addon for that?

Thank you in advance and best regards!

Hello!

Customizing controls may not be exactly what I’m thinking about. But it shall be closer to it then «Others».

I look out to usability.

What is my benefit using tabs? None! A tab makes sense when it’s pinned to that folder whi was opened in. But now, I got a mail, being in 4th tab, moving upwards to account with tat man and, ooops, being in a folder already open in tab number 2. To get back to folder opened in tab 4 I have to navigate back therein. This makes tabs useless since I do not geht a function like bookmarks. Maybe a tab shall be able to be fixed manually, not allowing to leave a folder to an other one in same level (!). As best, a folder in a new tab is standardly fixed not to be changed.

Switching between spellcheck - where to get a button to switch instantly a language? It’s really not uncommon in world outside USA to communicate in english and local language in a company. (And, maybe, more than these two languages!). Usability is fast change of options.

At last - observe yourself. Which option in menus do you really need and use daily? Be strict. I’m sure you’ll be surprised. Delete a mail? How many centimeters in context menu? I do not save it, buy may answer it in most cases.
