I have Thunderbird 68.10.0 on two Windows 10 computers, and I use "unified folders" on both. On both, in the Folder pane under "Inbox" there is a line for each of my email accounts. However, on computer "A" when I select the "Inbox" line itself, I see all messages from all account inboxes combined in the message list, whereas on computer "B" I see nothing in the message list when I select the "Inbox" line.

> How do I configure "B" to have the same behavior as "A"?

Further info: -- "A" also shows entries for "Unread" and "Total," but not "Size" (if I have those columns displayed) on the "Inbox" line, but "B" shows nothing in those columns for the "Inbox" line. -- When I right-click on "Inbox" on "A," I have five options, but on "B" I have eight. -- This isn't new behavior from a recent update; I am just finally asking after years. -- The analogous thing applies to Drafts, Sent, Archives, Junk and Trash folders for my accounts. Drafts and Sent lines display Unread and Total, but Archives, Junk and Trash only display Total.

There is a fullscreen mode that prints a window over the full size of the screen without showing toolbars/navigation/extensions... Is there a "full window" mode that do the same, but over the full size of a window? It would be a simple webview in a system window but without the control toolbars. It would be very useful when tiling several Firefox windows without wasting space for toolbars/tabs... This mode should be specific for a window since I do not want to loose the controls on the main screen-wide window.

Message list panel now has more white space (fewer messages shown) and dangerously confusing hover highlighting v78.3.2

I just upgraded to 78.3.2, and the message list panel now has significantly more spacing, less denstiy. There is more whitespace between lines. And there does not appear to be any option to reset this back to the previous compact view?

EDIT: Adding a note about an additional issue with the message list panel that is discussed in this thread... Prior to v78.3.2, a message/line in the message list pane would not become highlighted until I *clicked* on it. Now, whenever I just pass my mouse over the list, the message under the mouse becomes highlighted (and the last message(s) *selected* also remains highlighted). This results in two or more non-adjacent messages being highlighted in the same way at the same time. This is a poor usability experience and dangerous design that has caused me to perform operations on unintended messages multiple times, even nearly accidentally deleting messages. This usability degradation creates a risk of data loss.

KEYWORDS: message thread pane, message list panel, UX, UI design, usability, accessibility

I have upgraded my Thunderbird to 78.4.0 (32-bit) using Windows 10.

I find that the default background colour is not retained after I set it. Under Tools>Options.>Composition.HTML Style the background colour cannot be changed unless I uncheck the option Use reader's default colors. I changed the default colour to white but the background remains black.

I want all background colours to be white in all Thunderbird and Firefox windows unless their original colour is nonwhite.

Please tell me how to do this.

Thank you

I hope this is appropriate here. If not, please direct me to where it is.

As new releases of Thunderbird (and Firefox too) come out, a constant question for me is whether the add-ons that are important to me (I use a lot) will be compatible with the new release. It would help if

(1) The add-ons web site supported at least the current release. Right now the Thunderbird add-ons site only goes up to 73, while the most current release is 78.x.

(2) The Add-Ons web site always allowed me to specify release and OS. Sometimes that is allowed, sometimes not.

(3) The Add-Ons web site allowed me to specify a release before which I don't want to see add-ons listed.

(4) The Extensions page in Thunderbird allowed me to ask which of my extensions (enabled and/or disabled) are supported/not supported in a specified future release.

(5) When Thunderbird wants to install a new release, it reported on extensions that would become incompatible and always asked my permission to go ahead.

It probably would not be necessary to do all of these things, but I included them all because I don't know which are the most practical.

My has husband has failing eyesight and has given up writing e-mails, primarily because he can't see what he is typing. I have gone to the setting options and changed the font to Arial Rounded and text size to huge and clicked ont the bold text button. However, the changes only last as long as it takes to write and send the e-mail. When he goes back to his Thunderbird program, all those changes have disappeared. How can I set them all to be the default settings in his Thunderbird program? Thanks for any help. --Myra
