Workaround for "Theme Font & Size Changer for Thunderbird is incompatible with Thunderbird 78.7.1"

Please help me. I'm not great with this kind of stuff, but I really depend on Thunderbird! I've been hunting for a solution for hours, and have seen a couple of solutions from Toad-Hall, but I'm confused because those have varied, and I have another question besides.

1) Thunderbird disabled the add-on, but I have seen no difference in my fonts, which I'm happy with, but which is strange... Did this release actually fix the font sizes?

I have not yet removed the Theme Font & Size Changer add-on, because I don't want to be faced with the small text until I'm sure of a solution. In the past 2 days, Thunderbird crashed 3 times, having never crashed before, which brought me to learn about the add-on issue. Is that why it's been crashing?

2) So do I actually need to remove or work around the add-on despite its apparent preferred size? Or else in simple terms please explain how to work around the add-on, and also in what order I should remove the disabled add-on. I really appreciate the help.

I want to use the autoresponder to reply to emails from a certain sender according to a set of rules I can establish, but I don't want the sender to know that the reply is automated. The problem is that when the autoresponse is generated, it adds an "auto:" tag in the subject line. Can anyone tell me how I can hide or disable this tag ? (I'm not very technical so would appreciate a non-techy answer if possible :-). Thanks.

Thunderbird 78.9.1 under Win 10; suddenly noticed there's no clickable "send" or address lists on outgoing email creation window

I am a very long-time user of Thunderbird (and have been using it under Win 10 for several years) I do not know when my Thunderbird updated to 78.9.1

Encountering a weird problem today with Thunderbird when I try to create an outgoing email...

If I click the "Address Book" tab, all my saved addressees are intact, so that function is normal. If I click the "Write" icon (or "Reply" button when I am viewing a received email), I get a window (sample image uploaded) that has no email addressees from my address book to choose from, and even if I manually fill in an email addressee, there is no "send" button. Am I missing something obvious here?

If the recommended solution is to download and (re)install Thunderbird, will the (re)install keep all my old settings, emails, local folders, etc?

Hello,

 When receiving a message, Thunderbird considers a line containing "--" to be a signature start mark and automatically removes all following lines (instead of quoting it) when editing the reply. 

I want to disable this behavior. (The content of my (reply) message is my responsibility, I dislike automation on my authoring. ;-) )

So, how to configure this?

Regards.

How can I change my Thunderbird settings to include entire list of people when I reply to an email? Currently, it just says

"On 4/15/2021 10:14 AM, LastName, FirstName wrote:"

But what I really want is something like the following (so that when I read the quoted text I can always see who was included in the email):

"----- Original Message ----- From: LastName, FirstName <email> Sent: Thursday, April 15, 2021 4:04 PM To: LastNameX, FirstNameX <email>; LastNameY, FirstNameY <email>;LastNameZ, FirstNameZ <email> Cc: LastNameA, FirstNameA <email> Subject: Imporant topic X"

Hi,

Coming from Apple Mail, I have noticed my dependency on being able to double-click on image attachments to open them in an external viewer. I do this rather often to zoom in/out on images to make out details. I have recently started using Thunderbird on Linux, and I only seem to have the option to right click and save the image somewhere before I can view it, which is not very practical.

Is there any chance to see this functionality in Thunderbird too?

Best wishes, Istvan

I am migrating from The Bat! email client (still adore it most, but switching primarily to Linux). I have thousands of emails and are prepping them for conversion.

From screenshots of Thunderbird, it doesn't look that like both clients have the same Message List Columns/Message Fields, so I may lose information in the conversion. I am looking for an official list of all the fields available in Thunderbird so that I may compare and make changes in The Bat! first.

One example, I currently use a Memo field, which is in addition to a Tag field. Will Thunderbird support that?

Any guidance or information is appreciated. Thank you!

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.

Or has the developer of this excellent add-on retired or decided he/she does not want to play any more?

I downloaded some extension (sorry, forgot which) and it changed the way the left pane looks like. Instead of each email separate, each with a sub-category of Inbox, Drafts, Sent, etc., now all the Inboxes are grouped under one category, each "Sent" under another, etc.

So it changed from the first picture (or similar to it since I got that pic off the internet), to the second

Please how do I revert it so that each individual email has its own Inbox, Sent, etc. separate from another email's?

Is there a way to get an indication of unread emails on the taskbar icon under Windows 10? On the Mac version, there would be a red dot on the icon if there was an unread email, no matter how many accounts you have. I have the email notification turned on in my tray, but as soon as I open Thunderbird, and click on an unread email, it goes away, even if I have other unread emails.

Not a show stopper, but it makes it easier when you have multiple email accounts.

Many thanx,

Homer
