The problem affects Mozilla Thunderbird v.115.3.1. I have local folders with subfolders and subfolders within them. Until now, subfolders expanded only after clicking on the folder. And it was very convenient. Now subfolders expand as soon as the mouse hovers over the folder name. This is very uncomfortable. Is it possible to return to the previous solution in the settings?

Message Body disappeared on 115.3.1 -- Can only see headers on 1 of 2 accounts. The other account is fine. POP & viridio is the email provider. Same problem happened in 102 but reversed (account 2 was fine, account 1 is not)

Hi,

My Thunderbird auto updated this afternoon to 115.3.1 . Now I am only seeing message headers. The body of the messages has disappeared. I'm not seeing anything on the bottom half of the screen, not even the message tool bar where you can delete, reply, etc..

Strangely -- the very same thing happened to me six months back with a secondary account, but my primary account was unaffected. So I was using the email interface with one email address (same domain name) which worked fine, while the secondary one only showed headers, and not the actual messages.

NOW-- after this download, the secondary email address account is showing both the headers and the messages, while my primary account is only showing the headers.

PLEASE HELP. Posted here six months ago for the previous time but never got any solution to the problem then. Just lived with it, as it was a secondary email address, but I will have to leave Thunderbird if I can't get the primary address showing actual messages soon.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi,

My reading pane on v115 will only adjust downwards but I would like to adjust it upwards as was possible in previous versions.

Just to confirm what I mean, it will only go down, so making the reading pane smaller (or disapppear) and the thread pane larger.

I would like to make it go the opposite way, upwards to make the thread pane smaller.

Is there some code, css etc that can make it happen correctly?

Thunderbird recently upgraded (?) to Version 15 on my Windows 10 laptop. Since them, when I go to look at the "Trash" folder, I get the message: "Unable to open the summary file for Trash on username@gmail.com. Perhaps there was an error on disk, or the full path is too long." I was able to fix it temporarily by restarting Windows 10, but the error is back a few hours later.

Installed thunderbird for the first time. Mouse scroll wheel doesn't work in the inbox, in message view, in settings, or in calendar.

The scrollbars are visible, if I click and drag them they work, if I use the up/down arrow keys the window scrolls as expected, it's just the mouse wheel doesn't work. Mouse wheel works in other programs ex firefox.

I disabled smooth scrolling and autoscrolling but the issue persists.

I have a userChrome.css to change the color of unread messages in the "list of messages" pane to orange:

/* Messagepane text */ treechildren::-moz-tree-cell-text(new) {

       color: #34ebdc !important;
       font-weight: normal;

} treechildren::-moz-tree-cell-text(unread) {

       color: #34c6eb !important;
       font-weight: normal !important;

}

This worked fine in TB 102 and prior. When I upgraded to TB 115 this no longer has any effect. I'm not sure if the userChrome.css is being ignored or if the styling elements in userChrome.css have changed.

I'm on Windows 11 and userChrome.css is located in 2 places: C:\Users\$username\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\$profile.default\chrome\userChrome.css C:\Users\$username\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\$profile.default\chrome\userChrome.css

New Thunderbird Upgrade removes our ability to view Sent messages in Unified Mode

What is going on with the new TB client? I now have no access to my Sent mail. Nothing showing in Unified Sent mail and no more access to individual account sent folders. Major mistake upgrading. To elaborate, the Unified Send folder has never displayed sent messages and this is a known issue in bugzilla. But we have had the option to expand this folder to show the individual send folders in order to view sent messages. Now, there is no way to expand this folder, so the only way to view sent messages is to choose All Folders from Folders Mode. This defeats the purpose of Unified Folders. It's a step backwards. If there are no plans to address the Unified Send folder, then why was the option to expand it removed. Makes no sense.
