I have used and loved Thunderbird email app for years, but the updated version 91.2.1, (on iMac with Mojave), the Folder pane is now dark gray with black print so I can hardly read the folder names (see photo), also the drop downs (i.e. Tags) are gray and no long show the list of Tags in the colors assigned though tagged emails are colored properly. Please tell me this is not a new "feature"! Hopefully it will be corrected soon? Thanks!

macOS 10.13.6

after a Thunderbird update from 78.14.0 to 91.2.1, all my UI is now presenting itself with a super extra bold font.

This also happend to Firefox when it jumped to the big 9x.x, can't use it, had to migrate to Waterfox.

This is a major flaw/bug, TB has become impossible to use. The new "Density" item doesn't change anything

Can I modify anything in the deep config menu ?

Mozilla has now become a big disappointing tool.

Dear Thunderbird and Mozilla Help, I've been a regular user of Thunderbird for years now, because of my inability to use my left hand to type and so I use Nuance's Dragon NaturallySpeaking Software to put text on screen with compatible softwares. Thunderbird has been a regular product I use regularly through many versions of Nuance, until this week when suddenly it stopped working. Interestingly enough, it also stopped working on OpenOffice, distributed by Apache Foundation. Nuance tells me that their product will not work with Thunderbird at all, yet I had used it for years now, as well as using OO as I mentioned. I have the latest version of Thunderbird installed I think at least, and was trying to use this version of OO, but they told me that the latest version of OO that they support is 8 versions ago. Could you please work with Nuance to make your Thunderbird compliant with the latest version of Nuance version 15,PDI and continue to do so for future versions? Richard. ... ...-...-.... ... ...

Good day. My Thunderbird updated to version 91.2.0 Since then, when I press the Delete key, the program does not respond to the mouse wheel. When a message is displayed, I use the mouse wheel to move the message up/down. Now, however, there are a few moments where the program does not respond to the wheel. I have to wait a bit or click on the program window to continue.

I created a bug report: Bug 1735988 Opened 6 days ago https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1735988 When press 'Delete' while reading message, Thunderbird window loses focus

I am not sure how it happened, but when I click on a link in my Gmail, it defaults to opening in the Shopping container. I cannot find a way to reset this behavior. I can only right-click on a link and select which container in which to open a new tab, but this does not change the default behavior thereafter.

Furthermore, I cannot see in the Firefox preferences tab a way to reset preferences for a specific container.

Thanks for your help!

When I launched Thuderbird several days ago, I noticed a completely new interface and all of my Inboxes have been deleted except for gmail.com. My gmail inbox has no where near the number of emails that it had several days ago. I have a backup from several days ago and have restored my backup, but as soon as Thunderbird launches it appears to to an upgrade so I can't see, if my restore has worked.

Is there a way to get Thuderbird to launch without doing an upgrade after restore my PC to a condition before Thuderbird did its own upgrade?

Why has the storage of emails as HTML changed in Thunderbird 91? Is there any way of reverting to the old method? Has it changed when saving as Text also?

One subfolder that I have used for years in Thunderbird disappeared without warning. I use Win 10 and Thunderbird 91.2.1 (32-bit) on a 64-bit CPU. I wanted to move an email from one account to the local folder only to discover that the top folder and all below it were missing. I have no idea how this happened. I do know that the contents of the folder were important to me and difficult to impossible to recreate. What can I do now?

I have all my contacts organized in Thunderbird's address book and for some contacts, I have several addresses through I can reach them.

To be able to easily identify the "usual" way to do this, I have always marked one address as "preferred" (the star in the address book).

When I now type the contact's name in the compose window, all the addresses show. I would expect the preferred one to be pre-selected but it is sorted with the other addresses and may be quite far down.

Is there a way to make Thunderbird show that preferred address pre-selected? (or even only the preferred address?)

Cheers!

I have not been able to access any e-mail on my computer (ok on my phone and Kindle) since version 91.2.1 was installed. I do not know how to fix this. I get asked for my password and then get told the service is unavailable. As I said, the e-mail is still available on my phone and kindle and I have not changed any settings on any thing.
