Hi all -

Just upgraded to TB 78 on Windows 10 x64, Build 2004. Noticed two major things:

Issue 1 -

All of the mail folder icons are no longer yellow. Just a stark white with a black edge. I attached an Image of the issue for review.

Issue 2 -

My Message Composition Pane is dark with white letters and most incoming text mail is the same.

I do have some dark colors set up under PC Settings -> Personalization but everything was working perfectly prior to this new release.

I attached Images of the issue for review. Note the "dark haze" over the HTML email.

No add-ons are enabled!

Any help appreciated! Kind of urgent to me.

TIA :)

I just copied a 'draft' that is single spaced, to a second T-Bird s/w program on another PC. But now now when I try to correct something in the 'draft', the new T-Bird adds m/t lines between the data lines. It's in the 'Double Space' mode! ! ! !

How do I get T-Bird back into the 'single space' mode? ? ?

why is it so bloody complicated to create a signature in thunderbird. I could do it in outlook in seconds. thunderbird won't let me copy and paste a logo into the signature field and any file I'm attempting to attached to the signature word, pdf, png, jpeg. none of them seem to work? how do I create my custom signature?

maybe its just all thunderbird technologies. I've attempted to upload an image below and it won't allow anything to upload either.

I have tried to change font-size, font-color and font family as default for the messages that i am sending in the preferences but it does not work.

So i tried creating two files 1 ) ~/.thunderbird/r4f28oqg.default-default/chrome/userContent.css

/* Body */ body { font-size: 12pt !important; color: #006FC9 !important; font-family:Arial, sans-serif !important; }

2) ~/.thunderbird/r4f28oqg.default-default/chrome/userChrome.css

/* Body */ body { font-size: 12pt !important; color: #006FC9 !important; font-family:Arial, sans-serif !important; }

I am not sure how it works, i just want my my fonts to be with these default settings when i type and they should be received with the same size, color at the receiving end.

I didn't create my email accounts in the order I want them to appear, so I need to re-arrange them. Also, I'll be adding many more folders within each account (where message rules will organize the messages) and I'll want them in a particular order.

So far, I don't see any way to change the order of those folders or accounts. I tried searching in Support, but only found an outdated closed answer. How can I do that?

[sort folders addon] does not work for TB > v91

Thanks!

I would like to set the default font, default font size, and paragraph spacing. The current options are cute but not what I want. Similar questions have been asked before, and answers were provided eg to go to plain text. No, don't want that all of the time either.

I want to set the default for the font name, font size (as a number, not "big" or "medium" or "little", paragraph spacing so there is zero spacing before and after a paragraph, and single-line spacing - and to be able to set these either as an overall default or for the email being written. (Like microsoft Word font and paragraph options.)

If I write my email using the options I want using Word, then copy and paste into Thunderbird, all the careful formatting disappears!

Am I asking too much?

I've just installed Thunderbird for the first time, so forgive me if there's an obvious solution to this, but if there is I can't find it. I set the theme to dark mode, and My Inbox, like every other Thunderbird window, is in dark mode, but when I open an email the window itself is dark mode, but the email is not. When I open the email in Gmail it displays in dark mode, so I don't see why opening it in Thunderbird it isn't, when all the rest of the Thunderbird client is dark mode. Sudden jump to white background with black text is blinding! How do I make emails show in dark mode as well?

Thanks

My employer uses Mozilla Thunderbird for all of its internal emailing purposes. I was sending an email to a group of people and mistakenly sent it to the wrong group. Is it possible for me to cancel, delete or recall that email before they open it? All the recipients are on the same server as myself.

Hello, I managed to increase the font size shown in the Inbox and menus using your online support, thank you. Unfortunately, increasing the font size using "pixels" in the config editor, it also increases the spacing between the messages in the Inbox. This is unfortunate because I now see less messages unnecessarily. Is there a way to increase the font without increasing the spacing? Many thanks in advance.

Can I move just the local email folders? If so, how?
