I made the unfortunate decision to update Thunderbird to the latest version. Now the layout of menu and toolbars and colors is completely different. How come it didn't preserve my customisation? Can I revert to the previous version?

This morning I checked my email and all was fine. Later I restarted my computer and when I logged in Thunderbird (102.0.1) and my business account was gone. GONE! So, I added the account back.

I always keep my business account on top of the stack of my email accounts. Setting it as default did not move it to the top.

Help?

I have a 3:2 laptop whihc means that it has more vertical estate that your regular laptop, but still the message header is way too big for the amount of information it has to deliver.

I have looked at all the options and there are only ways to make it *bigger*...

Since it's all CSS behind, do you how to override the padding/margin of that element ?

Display addresses instead of names

I use Thunderbird 115.1.0. "Show only display name for people in my address book" is not selected in the preferences. The "Full Address column" Add-on does not work with version 115.*

In all folders the names of message senders/recipients are displayed instead of the e-mail addresses. For example, it shows "My Name" in the outbox - not name@example.org, my@name.com etc. In the inbox, it is "Anna Bel" and "Zack Miller" instead of "support@mozilla.org".

I am not interested in the names. When I want to see those, I look into the mail. I need the mail addresses!

How do I get back the addresses? (I think Netscape Mail did have that feature.)

The chosen answer to a similar question, "use Full Address column Add-on", does not work for Thunderbird 115.* and up.

Hello,

Is there a way to change what the icon buttons in TB Supernova do? There is a Get Mail button that polls all accounts for mail at the same time. is there a way to use that button to poll only one account at a time - rather than the little check mail icon that is there now?

Thanks!

I have had to Restore my laptop. Since I have I can not seem to separate my email accounts. I wish them to be kept separate because I use different 'Signatures' for each account. Is there a way to separate the accounts in Thunderbird? If not How do I delete all the email accounts connected to the main email account, without affecting any email accounts outside of Thunderbird so that I can then add them individually?

I don't mind the new look Thunderbird (115.5.0), except that I keep clicking the menu button when I intend to minimise the window, especially on a tablet. It's too close to "Minimise window". The thread at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1418752 helped me to put the main window menu bar at the top, where it traditionally is and where I prefer it, but the window controls moved with the button bar so the problem remains! How can I restore the window controls to their proper place in the top right-hand corner, while keeping the main window menu bar at the top, please?

Hello,

I am using an addon called 'Provider for Google Calendar' that works seamlessly to sync calendar events in both directions using my Gmail Android app and Thunderbird email client v102 on my desktop. It's great.

I have been reading about addons for doing the same thing for contacts but the 2 addons that I see appear to be for use with older Thunderbird versions. There is gContactSync and Google Contacts so I am wondering if anyone may know of an add on or work around that will allow for the syncing of contacts between Thunderbird v102 and a Gmail account?

Sorry if I missed it but I cannot find anything when searching - perhaps nothing exists yet?

Thanks in advance for any tips,

Mike

When I double-click a message in my archive folder in Local Folders, it opens a Compose window, not a reading tab or window. I have to right-click the archived message and choose Open message in new tab/window to read the message. It should default to opening for reading, not answering (Composing). Is there some setting I'm missing? 115.1.0+ on Windows 11 Pro 22H2

Maybe I just need reassurance on this one. I have been forced to open 2 new email accounts - @outlook.com and @gmail.com - because my @waitrose.com has been terminated by @plus.net (my ISP).

I originally - clearly successfully - prefixed the original addresses with 'A and B' (to beat automatic alpha-sorting) and put the one I used at the top for various reasons.

I would like to do the same for the 2 new accounts which may be different in some way, being out-sourced products. Is there any reason why not? Thanks.

I want to change the line spacing in my emails to single line including paragraph spacing. Advice given in previous posts says to select Menu then Options. I have clicked on the 3 bar Menu icon and Options is not there. I clicked on Tools in the Menu Bar and Options is not there either. I apparently have to get to Composition, but cannot find a way of getting there.

I cannot permanently get rid of threads. The latest thunderbird makes that the default. I would like all e-mails shown, by name or by date. The new find doesn't allow choice of sender or recipient or topic which was better. I am getting so irritated that I am considering, after many years of use, of ditching Thunderbird for something else.

I often need to forward messages, but sometimes they need to be sent inline, and sometimes as attachments.

Before Supernova I had a button that allowed me whilst reading a message to choose on the fly whether to forward it inline or as an attachment. Now there only seems to be a FORWARD button which gives the default option as determined by the settings. I know I can right click and FORWARD AS but AFAICS that only works when the message is closed. The only button I can see in CUSTOMISE TOOLBARS is the single option FORWARD. There seems to be no FORWARD AS button.

I would love to have back that choice from within the message that I had before. Is there any way to achieve this?

I am trying to use Thunderbird vs. Outlook but becoming very frustrated. First I want my most recent emails at the top vs. bottom. When I delete an email (8/6/2023, 12:52 PM), the 'next' (meaning older - 8/6/2023, 12:46 PM) email is presented vs the 'previous' (meaning newer - 8/6/2023, 1:00 PM). How do I fix this. I really don't want to go back to Outlook but every time I delete an email I have to click 'prev', which is becoming tedious and frustrating. I've searched Support and none of the existing responses fix my problem. Thanks in advance. Jerry K
