I use the search feature a lot, and it's extremely annoying that every time after the search I have to click "Show results as list" in order to get a proper view of the search results. The default view is quite poor in my opinion.

The question is: why isn't there an option to show the search results as a list by default?

It would surely be a very, very easy feature to implement, and as I was googling for this, I noticed that users have been asking for this for YEARS now. Why on earth hasn't it been implemented?

When you highlight an email and then delete it, the little check box at the far left then 'jumps' into the email either above or below the one you deleted. How can you stop that from happening? I've attached a screenshot to illustrate my problem. How do you stop the check box on a deleted email from jumping to an existing email you may not want to delete?

Hello! My name is Anya. I am desperately trying to manage my social media addiction and to help support that I am wondering if its possible to disable the privacy window. I know I can install a website blocker - which I have, but it does not apply to the private window so I have full access to social media on it, I just have to log in. I want to COMPLETELY block Facebook and Instagram off of my laptop. Is this possible? Thank you!

I have Thunderbird installed on my laptop running Fedora 40 with Gnome on Wayland. I have two monitors with different resolutions.

The laptop monitor has a resolution of 1920x1080 whereas the external monitor has a resolution of 1360x768.

Thunderbird display fine on the main monitor, but when I move it to the external display, everything becomes huge and unusable.

I don't want to scale things in such a way that I have the opposite problem, that is things are way too small on the laptop monitor. Is there a way to have Thunderbird scale properly on the external monitor to have it maintain the right proportions on both monitors?

I have been using Thunderbird since the demise of Eudora. My configuration file is messed up and I would like to clean it up without losing everything. I have many accounts on different platforms. My unified inbox no longer works. It was working for my gmail accounts, but now nothing shows up in it. When looking through some accounts, there were multiple copies of emails in the archive file, and I never put them there.

Is there some way to preserve things like signature files and personalities and sever configurations, and set up thunderbird like a new install preserving the above and my contacts? It is a real mess now. I think there are multiple configuration files and I would like to delete some of them, but am afraid to.

Hi all - I wanted to share a Thunderbird customization blog I wrote after assembling a bunch of CSS bits and pieces via the Thunderbird reddit community. If this post doesn't belong here, please delete, I wasn't sure how best to share it.

Mainly the blog is geared to having Thunderbird look/behave more like Outlook or Windows Mail app etc. and for those you'd like to learn a bit about CSS coding.

I am curious as to why Mozilla/Firefox doesn't seem interested in matching Chrome for addons for popular dropshipping apps such as CJDropshipping, DSers and AutoDS. These are well catered for in Chrome and allow easy import of products into stores such as Shopify. They save a lot of time for already busy store owners and staff yet Firefox loyalists are forced to switch over and use Chrome to make life easier and save time. For someone who has been using Firefox across both Linux and Windows since it's 2004 launch, it is galling and almost physically debillitating to have to resort to this each time. If I were any good at coding I would surely fix this serious shortcomming.

Please Mozilla look to this and provide us with better options.

I installed the Facebook Container some time ago. But recently realized that Facebook is tracking me, because I'm getting targeted adds on FB. I have also had Firefox set to always use Private Browsing. Today I discovered that the Facebook Container dose not work in Private Browsing. SO, What is the best way to keep FB and others out of my business (short of not using FB)? All this time I thought I was protecting myself and I have not been. HELP!
