Running on Thunderbird Release # 60.5.0

Also installed: "Theme Font & Size Changer"

Problem Status:

1. When opening TB, Inbox listing of messages, text size is OK. 2. When clicking on a specific message, the text size is very small (hard to read with 78 year old eyes). 3. When clicking on reply or forward the message text size changes to OK.

What is the fix for this issue?

In a previous release, including the use of TF&SC, there were no problems.

I have attempted to get answers to this issue in a previous posting without success, so please excuse my second attempt.

Sincerely,

mikeandsylvia

In "Account Settings > Outgoing SMTP Servers" I expected to have the ability to fully specify authentication options for each server. Conversely, I have discovered that I can only set the authentication method to "Normal Password" but I can't set the actual password.

Even though I'm using multiple outgoing SMTP servers, in "Preferences > Security > Passwords" I can only see one IMAP server and one SMTP server.

How can I set the password for the other SMTP servers?

Any advice please? Thank you

When I installed Thunderbird a week or so ago, I figured out how to create folders by right-clicking on Local Folders. However, I also encountered an add-on that hides the Local Folders option, so I know there must be some other kind of folder. What is that folder called, how is it created, and what are the advantages of using it?

If there is a page that already explains this, please direct me to it.

Thank you.

Every other mail program is minimized when closing in the clipboard. Why does not Thunderbird manage that? That's sad. Are the wishes simply ignored here? That can not be that difficult. A mail program MUST always run in the background, even if you click "Close". So far, Thunderbird has always been my favorite program due to the many add-ons and good features. But slowly I have to search for alternatives ...

Hello,

since I updated to Thunderbird 60.0 I cannot get it to show a 24h time format.

My environment: - Windows 10 set to English language - time format in Windows is set to 24h

I have found to way to configure this back to 24h time format. With the previous version (52.9.1) this worked fine. Is there any way I can fix this?

Best regards

Andi

I have researched endless options how to download an add on for google search in the options dropdown menu for search engines.

The download https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/google-search-for-thunderbi/?src=search says it is not compatible with my version of thunderbird which is 60 Beta. What must I do?

Sorry, I'm a technological idiot who wanted to get away from Yahoo. I created a Thunderbird e-mail account using the wizard and chose the standard settings. All seemed well until I realized that I could not sign out from e-mail. Booting up the computer logs me in, and choosing to exit just minimizes the screen. I want to log in only by entering the password and have the option to log out while still online.

i don't want my emails to be archived unless i move them to a different folder myself. i started using thunderbird in july, but the only emails in my inbox are from august. i need to be able to search thru all my old emails without having to go to the server & hope they can be easily found. i DO NOT want to store any emails in any folders that i cannot open with a simple click of my mouse. how do i even know where to find them to re-open them in thunderbird? the menus & drop downs can be so confusing. the online help is useless. it tells you that emails are archived & the worst instructions on how to do it, but it isn't for people new to thunderbird.

i am so glad i didn't completely turn off & kill my windows live mail because at least there i can see every email in my inbox since january. i am trying to adjust to using thunderbird & up until i tried to find an email from july, it was going pretty good. i know i read that email in july in thunderbird, but it isn't there now. where did it go? how do i get it back?

I have just downloaded the compression add-on that was shown in the list of available add-ons for Thunderbird. I tried to compress a large photo file in a test email and the add-on did not recognise the file type. It was a JPG file of 4.38 MB. I have problems sending files of this size, which are not always welcome, and when I do send one it then has problems being transferred to my Sent file. I used to use Picasa which had an option to send photos directly (i.e. not attached to an email) in different sizes, but Picasa is now no longer supported and Google Photos does not have this useful feature.

The extension store has several Add-Ons for resizing outgoing images but nothing that can resize incoming ones.
