It must have been one of those nutty "...something I did" things that made a second account identity appear one day. I use a Unified Folders mode exclusively, and the subject account is my primary account (identical to the first Unified listing), but some action on my part made it pop up below as well, just above 'Local Folders.' The only subfolder under this redundant appearance is 'Templates,' which is empty. The unwanted appearance starts out in a blue font, but turns black (as shown below) once the 'Templates' folder is clicked on. Can I get rid of this somehow?

Since the latest firefox update, to clear history now, it has Clear site and download, saved form info, and searches all together now. There is no way to uncheck saved info and searches so that does not get cleared. Will there be a fix to this? There is no way to clear the history now without clearing the saved info and searches, which I do not want to do.

Messages saved to one folder in Local Folders is missing all messages older than 2/14/2014

I am using Thunderbird in Windows 11 on an Intel NUC 12 computer. I am using Thunderbird in pop mail for gmail.com and mail.com. I save all important messages daily to Folders in Local Folders. Today I attempted to look for messages in one folder named Family and Friends and found that messages older than 2/14/2024 are missing. I checked other folders and found that they seem OK with messages going back 5 to 10 Years. I tried running repair but nothing changed. Any idea where these files can be? I do have backups of the app data for Thunderbird and am considering to try a prior version but I'm afraid I might lose new saved messages. If I tried to Archive messages, could this be the problem? I have looked in Archive and found very little. Any help would be appreciated. Frank

Please ignore this question. I found my older messages.

I composed an outgoing email message that I wanted to keep for future use, and saved it as a Template. That not only saved it under the unified Templates heading, but created a second appearance of my main email account with its own Templates subfolder. At that point I decided I really didn't want to keep it after all, so I deleted the message, but the second Templates folder didn't disappear; its still on the tree list as an empty folder. Right-clicking that folder doesn't have a Delete function, but it does present a Repair option, but running that doesn't help. How do I get rid of that unneeded individual email account listing and the empty Templates folder?

On Opera and Chrome, I am logged in as a google user. I make a diary available from a web page which is limited as to how the viewer sees it. If I (or another authorised user) is viewing it then they see all the detail. If anyone else sees it then they only see 'busy' against all the bookings. This has worked fine for years.

On changing to Firefox, though, when the web diary is accessed - even though I am logged in properly - it only shows the 'busy' view. It seems as if it's not maintaining my google login, hence showing the 'incorrect' view.

Is there anything that I can change to make this work properly?

TIA

Hi,

Let's say you're opening an email in thunderbird, and it's an email you've been exchanging with someone for a long time. As you scroll down, the older emails are indented to the right, making the view of the email "narrower and narrower". What is the setting or method to prevent this from happening?

Thanks in advance!

Title. I've followed every guide I've found but the issue still persists. I've created a new profile, reinstalled ff after deleting the whole file from my pc, deleted all cookies for a dozen times, disabled all extensions, started ff in that problem mode or whatever it's called and I still can't login to certain websites.

I type my login credentials, press "continue" and nothing happens.

I hate how much information Google gathers from their users but I used Chrome for five or more years and I never had this issue with their browser. Not once. Even now I constantly have to go back using Chrome because with it I have no issues logging in to the sites while on FF I just can't.

What is going on?

Just updated Tbird to ver. 115.3.1 and immediately noticed the more condensed appearance of emails in the inbox. Prior to update my inbox displayed fully on 1 screen and then I had to scroll down to see the last 10 or so. After the update all emails were visible on about 3/4 of a screen with no scrolling required. The problem is that this density makes for more difficult reading. I'm not sure if the font is smaller, but certainly the line spacing is smaller. Is there anyway to spread things out a bit? Thanks.

I have been using Thunderbird address book synchronized to Google contacts but it has stopped synchronizing this summer. I had been able to find new contacts in contacts.google.com add a label then later I found that they had synchronized and were in my various instances of Thunderbird.

This was working fine in the winter this year. But I added a contact this way in the summer and the contact has not appeared in any instance of Thunderbird Address book.

I am using Thunderbird 102.14.0 with Windows 7 and 10. But Linux may be using an older version Ubuntu is on version 102.15.0. The issue seems to have arisen this summer.

I disabled a few years ago; TbSync, Cardbook, Google-4-TbSync, Provider-4-CALDAV & CARDDAV, when Thunderbird Address book started to work with Yahoo and Gmail address books.

The only add-on that I use now is LT for grammar and spell checking.
