Bold formatting is missing new messages located in Messages Pane, and Folders Pane after upgrading to OSX Monterey 12.0.1 I have upgraded thunderbird to version 91.2.1 but nothing got fixed. I have no Add ons installed in Thunderbird. I suspect the issue is related to the new SF PRO system font.

Any hint ?

Since upgrading to 91.2.0 (64-bit) I've been having multiple issues on a daily basis. I've tried repairing and compacting all folders, to no avail.

I have Windows 10 64-bit version 21H1, build 19043.1288 with 64 GB of RAM.

Images are attached for the first three.

Sending email: The "Sending Message" dialog pops up, the progress bar reaches 100%, and it hangs. I click "Cancel" and get a message that the message either couldn't be sent or couldn't be save to the "Sent" folder. This generally happens when replying to an email.

My inbox show no unread email, but the folder name in the "Folders" panel is highlighted, indicating unread email.

I select an unread email in the inbox. I have the reading pane open at the bottom of the window and can see the email. The email does not get marked as read. The Folders pane does not update to reflect that the email has been read. I have Thunderbird set to mark messages as read immediately.

It can take a very long time to load a new email, particularly if there are embedded images.

Thunderbird does not seem to be synchronizing properly with my email accounts, which are all set up as IMAP. I'll get messages from my email server that my quota is reaching it's limit, even though I delete messages on a regular basis and purge the Trash regularly. My account has a 100MB size limit.


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

I have tried reinstalling, cleaning up profile, rebuilding folders. Updating did not work and I think that may have broke it (versioun 91.2 x32)

Weird hotkey (maybe?) mass-deleting emails

I had this issue a little over a year ago where something squirrely with my email, and it acted like I'd hit some hotkey to select 'most everything in my inbox -- and deleted it, when to MY eye, I'd selected a small handful of emails and hit delete. So it should have been deleting something like 8-20 messages and instead it deleted over 1000.

It took me a while to figure out what had happened, so I ended up having to move everything out of the trash folder as the only means of ensuring I restored all the newly-deleted messages. And then it happened again. Twice, I think. I was never able to figure out what happened, and hadn't had any further issues with it (but also still haven't had a chance to finish weeding through all the extra emails I had to restore from the trash in the process of restoring what I'd deleted).

ANYWAY...so fast-forward to today, and it did it AGAIN. And I absolutely cannot make sense of what's happening here.

What I SEE, when looking at the inbox, is a total of 4099 emails (I know, I know -- see above saga). I selected 6. These 6 were visibly selected. The taskbar showed that there were 6 selected. Somehow I accidentally opened them (accidentally double-clicked, I guess) instead of deleting them or in addition to hitting delete, and as I was X-ing out of those 6 email tabs, the program started deleting emails from the inbox. 4072. (Apparently afterward, it deleted the 6 I'd highlighted, because I had to undo twice to restore everything, and it put back the 6 first, and then the 4072.)

None of this makes any sense to me. The 6 messages were still visibly -- and apparently actively -- highlighted. 4099-4072 is not 6, so it didn't invert the selection and delete everything else. 4072 is not EVERYTHING in the inbox, so it didn't just delete the entire contents of the folder. I count 28 emails visible in the list on the screen without scrolling, so it deleted only messages that were not visibly accessible to click on. But it didn't delete ALL the non-visible messages, because the difference is 27, not 28.

This is making me crazy, because I cannot, for the life of me, figure out WHAT combination of clicks/keystrokes/magic is causing this to happen -- which means I can't ensure it does NOT happen.

What gremlin is this?

Is there some hotkey combination I can unprogram so it doesn't do this again, or is it a bug, or...?

Sometimes I want a calendar item I create in Thunderbird in other apps, like MacOS Calendar.

To do this I create the item and include my email address as an invitee. When the email is received, I save the ICS file, and then open it in other app.

Before 91.x, this procedure worked without problem.

Now the ICS file opens, the apps asks what calendar the item should be attached to, asks whether updates should be sent to the invitees, and then it looks like it is trying to open a dialog where the item is saved to the calendar. The dialog displays and goes away in an instant. The item never gets saved to the calendar.

Why doesn't this work with this version of Thunderbird?????

I have just set up thunderbird on ubuntu 20.04 to use my work exchange server (that also needs OAuth 2 and MFA). It set up ok but I have two problems.

a) After spending an hour or so downloading and synchronising it had downloaded all my mail folders correctly. But it doesn't seem to give me any new emails when they arrive. b) I quit thunderbird and restarted. It is now spending another hour downloading and synchronising although it has now got my new emails that arrived since I first installed it.

I don't know if it matters but in the xterm I started thunderbird from there are a lot of messages including "console.warn: Lightning: No unique email address for lookup!" and "console.warn: Lightning: Parsing failed for parts of the item (while this is considered to be a minor issue, we continue processing the item): " which appears repeatedly.

I do not have a local calendar as it does not sync with my Google calendar. So when I get an invite, I get the "No Writable Calendars" notification.

I go there to add the invite to my Google calendar associated with that email address. Has there been a solution so that I can select the calendar (not the local calendar, which I don't have) to add an invite?

Following is the folder name to which Thunderbird has added the suff ix 36ceb049. 2016-04-26 Blick auf das Belchenhotel, Inh. J. Stiefvater, mit Bergkette36ceb049

In addition, a second folder with exactly the same name was created. I am able to delete one of the folders but not the other one.

When I clicked on the Trash folder for Local Folders, I was asked if I was sure that I wanted to delete this file. After clicking on OK, the file appeared in the Trash folder. Why was I asked that question when I clicked on the Trash folder? I had already acknowledged that I wanted to delete the folder.

These are the files in the Trash folder with added suffixes: 2016-04-26 Blick auf das Belchenhotel, Inh. J. Stiefvater, mit Bergkette36ceb049 2020-12-26 Die Organuhr Acupuncture Chart, Dr. EW Stiefvater 247a3e6b1b 2020-12-26 Die Organuhr Acupuncture Chart, Dr. EW Stiefvater 247a3e6b1b --both of the above identical file names are in the Trash folder without the second one being appended with (2) Morgan Stanley - Russ Abbott, Sylvia Lomeli, etce14b81d9 Morgan Stanley - Russ Abbott, Sylvia Lomeli, etce14b81d9(2) Website programmers, subcontractors, helpers, etcd756875c Website programmers, subcontractors, helpers, etcd756875c --both of the above identical file names are in the Trash folder without the second one being appended with (2)

All of the deleted files in the Trash folder with added suffixes still appear in Local folders. The folder, Website programmers, subcontractors, helpers, etc., the same folder as the last two folders in the preceding paragraph, appears twice in Local Folders but without suffixes. When I click on the first folder, a little rotating circle indicates that it is being opened, but it doesn't open. When I click on the second folder, it opens immediately. Thereafter the first one opens immediately. The problem is that all of the messages that had been saved in Website programmers, subcontractors, helpers, etc. are missing. That is also true of all of the folders with suffixes appended by Thunderbird. The messages saved to them have apparently all been lost.

Thank you very much for tackling this problem!

I had my account rearranged with add-on manually sort folders in thunderbird 78. Recently I have updated to thunderbird-91.2.0-1.fc34.x86_64 Fedora (Linux). I read that changing the order of account needs to be done now in the account settings. In the account settings my exchange account is in the last position just above Outgoing server (SMTP). So I placed my exchange account there and manually moved the exchange account to the top position on top of my first normal account.

Each time I restart thunderbird I find my exchange account moved downwards again. It's very unpleasant to move over and over again after restarting my exchange account to the top.

Is there a way to tell thunderbird to leave my exchange accoutn in the top position?

I really appreciate the help as I cannot find where to fix it.

TB version 91.2.1 (64-bit)

I'm using TBSync to keep my TB address book synced with my Google contacts. This seems to put all of the synced values into a separate address book, identified by my gmail address. I previously used another synchronization tool that is no longer supported (gcontactsync), that also did the same thing, so I now have TWO address books associated with my Google contacts.

However, I also have a bunch of entries in my "Personal Address Book" and my "Collected Addresses", but when trying to compose an email (even though I have the "All Address Books" specified as the "Default Startup Directory") any addresses that exist only in the Google contacts address book are ignored - entering the email address manually into the To: of an email gives a notice that the address "is not in my address book".

First, why is TB unable to find these addresses, and second, is there any way to merge these various address books into a single address book (e.g. the PAB?) where I can de-dupe them? If the Google-synced address book needs to remain separate, I can live with that, but unsure if that is the case.

Thanks!

Hello,

I switched to Thunderbird a few months ago. Since the beginning I am having a weird issue. When I perform an action on an email, like marking it as read, or sending it to spam, there is a chance that this action just reverts after a few seconds.

Example: I click on "mark read" for an email. The email shows as read. A few seconds / minutes later, the unread icon pops back up and shows me the email again as unread. I then have to click "mark read" again. This process (sometimes) repeats itself, meaning I have to click like 3-5 times on "mark read" until it actually stays this way.

I don't understand why this happens after some seconds / minutes (every time this happens the time also varies). I'm guessing maybe this has something to do with Thunderbird being incompatible to my mail provider (Yahoo)?

Maybe something like this is happening? I click "mark read" -> Thunderbird syncs this change to my Yahoo IMAP server, but this fails for some reason -> Thunderbird checks periodically for new messages -> overwrites the local state of the email with the IMAP server state -> email is now unread again

Some more information:

- I tested both Thunderbird 78 and 91 - I also tried completely setting up a new profile - I tried restricting the number of mails synced offline to the last year, in case Thunderbird has problems handling large inboxes - I enabled and checked Thunderbird logs via export MOZ_LOG_FILE and export MOZ_LOG=IMAP:4 but didn't find anything helpful (please advise what to look for) - I am using my Yahoo mail account since over 15 years and never had this issue with other mail clients like Mailbird, Opera Mail, AquaMail (Android) or FairEmail (Android), so I doubt its a Yahoo issue

All this did not help. How can I fix this? Are there any settings I could try? It is really driving me crazy having to redo the same actions over and over again.

Thank you :)
