My thunderbird just upgraded to 115.2.2 (32-bit) - my windows is 64-bit - but I can't read the preview window or emails. Everything is in a gigantic font so I see only 2 lines at a time in both the main email edit screen and the preview screen. I tried changing it to Calibri 12 in Settings (it was Calibri 17) but that makes no difference. I also don't like that I have to go through File menu now to get messages for just one account. Is there a way to downgrade back to my old version? I guess that would be 115.2.1. Thank you!

Just updated to the newest thunderbird and now everything under the "unified folder" is gone. My inbox, sent items, drafts etc. etc. is all gone. I can send emails but the receiving them in does not work correctly. I see the number of new emails in a red circle on the Thunderbird icon but I can not find the new emails.

Anybody have any hints/tips or ways to let Mozzilla know there is big problem?

Since TB 115, I have issues with the "invite" functionality of Lightning, as follows.

It generates errors as follows:

  • "invite" does not work. I can add emails to be invited to an event, but the invite is then not sent at least with the option "notify" + "send individual mail" (other alternatives such as open visible list of destinatories are not feasible due to privacy)
  • when opening an "event" from the calendar, it displays in a full-screen format (see screenshot_2) that lists all invited attendees
  • The "invite attendees" window works but has a strange pink block on top right (see screenshot_3)
  • the page where the format of sending ("notify", "send individual mails") is not accessible any more

Currently the calendar as such works fine. But the "invite" function is critical for the use I am giving as transnational NGO to invite to meetings etc. All worked fine with previous TB versions.

System config: WIN10 prof, all updates installed, fully licensed, AMD Ryzen 9 5900X etc. (mid-end system built in 2022).

Thanks for looking into a solution.

I have been using Thunderbird for years. I loved it and there was never a problem. Until I updated to the latest version. My Operating system is Windows 10. The problem: It was impossible to set the size of the letters in a satisfying way. Only massive letters in writing emails resulted in a readable format on the receiving end. I tried one of the suggestions I found on the internet. Something like "set the same format initially and then again in Latin and the bottom choice of letter types". It did not work for me. So I decided to quit Thunderbird and start working with Gmail. Which is okay, but you have to be online and you have to change websites if you use more than one email address. I don't expect you to have a solution, but I want to inform you that I decided to quit after a years long good experience. Thank you for all your work and effort, Daniel van Schooneveld

Thunderbird has just auto-updated to 115.2.3 and it looks terrible. What number is the previous version please and how do I reinstall it. When opening Thunderbird, I have to scroll down through a lot of old emails to get to the new ones - the previous version opened at the new emails. Also the layout is not very nice.

Since installing Supernova, I find a huge (multiple minute) delay whenever I open a folder to a new tab or window. There was zero delay on the prior version to open a folder, so it appears to be specific to Supernova. I'm surprised that no one else has mentioned it on the forums yet, so it seems it might just be something about my particular setup. Can anyone help me diagnose what I might be doing wrong?

Thanks!

I'm running Thunderbird 115.2.3 on Mac OS X Ventura 13.5.2. Since a few days ago, the Thunderbird interface will hang completely a few minutes after it launches. I can usually get in and read an email or two before this happens. No crash dialog appears, and I have to force quit the application.

A few things I've tried, unsuccessfully:

  • Launching in safe mode has the same issue
  • Deleting the global messages DB seems to make this issue go away for a while, but then it comes back again at a certain point (like after a day or so of use)

I was able to save a Mac OS X crash report, which is here https://gist.github.com/timstallmann/1bc7150c43054642e5e936782e247527 in case it provides any insight.

I hope there's a solution to this! I have been a loyal thunderbird user for decades and have never had a problem like this.

The redesign of TB in 115 has moved the search box into what is traditionally the title bar of a window. Likewise, customization puts buttons, such as "delete", up there as well. This moves them farther away from the message list area.

If one is using a trackpad, this redesign requires much more effort to navigate the screen since the mouse must be moved farther to click the button or to search, and then moved back farther to return to the message list.

I'm sure that someone thought this was cosmetically appealing but it represents a serious degradation in usability.

I strongly suggest that you reconsider the design, putting more emphasis on usability than on cosmetics.

Thank you

It seems with recent updates, things no longer work as it used to. I am currently using 115.3.0, build ID 20230926115257 on Debian Linux.

It used to be that if you selected the view as "Unread", it would stick with that folder, now it just does it until you leave the folder.

I normally view messages as text since html can be a security issue. There is a button marked "Show HTML", which no longer works. Now I have to select "View", "Message Body as" and then manually select things back and forth.

I used to be able to have a button for the Filter Function to have filter folder or filter message, not it is only a selection for Filter Functions and then I can select what I want to do. This is going backwards.

Under "Unread Folders", often the count is incorrect and it claims that there is a message which is unread, which is false. If I select "Compact View", and then unselect it, the count gets corrected.

There are also other issues which were caused by updates. There is clearly an issue with regards with a lack of testing to ensure things are not getting broken.

Hi, I stupidly 'upgraded' from V102 to V115, which I immediately disliked. I managed to re-install V102, but it then said the profile was for a newer version. I had a backup from a few weeks ago, and copied all the top-level files over. So I got all my setup bacvk and all seemsed fine, but have just seen that my address book is messed up.

I had lots of important 'contact lists' (about 10), they have all disappeared. I only see "Outlook Express..." (imported ages ago) and "Collected Addresses", the main section, and the sub-lists are all missing, and I have lost years of addresses for my business.

I have the abook.sqlite backed up on 13th Sept, but can't open or use it to check what's in there. I tried importing, but got as 'fail'
