As 99% of users hate threading, myself included, why don't you just change the default to no threading?

I have looked at a lot of the answers to previous questions on this subject and none of them work. One has a supposed video to help but that relates to Gmail and is not understandable. Perhaps you want us to all use Gmail. I have looked the article "Message threading in Thunderbird - keep messages grouped by conversation" but that is useless and the suggested method of stopping threading doesn't work.

Please change the default!!

Hi!

I presumed that the settings for copies to self when sending works for both replies and forwards, but I just discovered that it only works for replies. That is NOT satisfactory, and not logical - if you ask me.

I think it worked until about 2 years ago, when Thunderbird was seriously damaged by "updates", and has not yet recovered fully...

I have attached an anonymized screenshot of the "Place a copy in" settings. The sending email address is behind 3 of the erased areas. Only "Bcc these" is different.

Any solution would be appreciated. Thank you.

I've got just one address book with several groups. I can see how many contacts are in each. But how can I locate which contacts have not been assigned to a group? No export of contacts or groups helps. Is there a config. file or something that maps the contacts to the groups? The intelligence must be hiding somewhere here.

It would be great if one could display the groups as one can display the address book name in the Address Book tab. Maybe I need to convert groups to address books? Will I be sorry if I try that? With a little testing, functionality seems very much the same.

Many thanks.

Whenever I get a link whether in an email from a verified sender or from using a site like Amazon, clicking on a link always results in "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site." This has happened ever since loading the most recent version of Firefox (124.0.2) and it is very, very frustrating. What is causing this? Even in "safe" mode this occurs. Please rectify this situation. I do not want to have to change browsers after more than 20 years with Firefox.

Hello,

First time posting here, so I'm hoping that someone can help me out.

I'm encountering a very odd issue on my Macbook Pro running MacOS Sonoma 14.4. I am unable to access two sites – allrecipes.com, and seriouseats.com on my home WiFi network on the Macbook.

These sites work on other browsers (tested on Safari and Chrome), and they also work on my iPhone.

Oddly, when I went to work and tried to access these sites via WiFi using Firefox, I was able to.

I am unsure what the problem is – the ability to access these sites on Safari, Chrome, and my iPhone at home suggests that it's not a network issue. I haven't encountered this issue with any other sites.

I am attaching three screenshots 1) The error message that I'm seeing for allrecipes when I attempt to access the site 2) The security tab which shows that the connection is unencrypted for allrecipes (home network) 3) The security tab showing that the connection is encrypted for alrecipes (work network)

Thanks

I accidentally pressed a lot of keys on my keyboard and for some reason the default colors of Firefox have changed. I found out that by using Ctrl+Alt+D that I can switch the colors back to normal or to the colors that now appear automatically, but this only works for one tab. If I open a new tab, it shows the weird colors (see images below). I tried looking up specific shortcuts for Firefox considering the shortcut mentioned before (Ctrl+Alt+D) only works on Firefox. But I can't find any shortcut tied to that combination. I'm unsure what to do and how to fix this.

I would appreciate it if someone could tell me how to fix this.

Hey Gang -- Has anyone else experienced this?

Whenever I'm on NPR's website listening to a radio program, I can't access any other websites on separate tabs or windows. (they simply won't 'load' or even acknowledge any commands)

I find this to be very strange.

The Sky.com email is now provided by Yahoo. I can access my emails there but I prefer Thunderbird and have used it for some time now. Thank you for your help.
