I recently updated to Thunderbird 91.1.2 and I really like most of it but there is one feature that I would like to restore from previous versions. I preferred it when the attachments pane was in the top right corner. Now it has been moved below the message (when composing a message) and for me it's more difficult to keep track of my attachments. Is there a way to move in back? Thanks for your help

Hello, I user thunderbird for several email accounts and while it mostly works i do run into some oddities.

In the Tools-Message Filters menu i have many things sorted there.

I have noticed 2 issues: 1) Filters that have been in place for months will randomly stop working, i can rerun the filter manually and nuttin, and a week alter it starts sorting again. I verify the email address and check and it's correct and matches the rule.

2) Yesterday i made a new rule to a new subfolder. It was regarding some class work I had done, and I wanted all things from the email address there to be moved to that folder. I copied the email address into the filter and it does nothing.

For most of my rules I have checked "Manually Run", "Getting new email: Filter before junk classification", and "Periodically, every 10 minutes" but only some dont work.

Im not even sure how i start troubleshooting this, any advice?

Thanks all!

This new version, 91.0, now opens PDF files in a new Thunderbird tab. In previous versions, I could open PDF files in Acrobat Reader DC.

I want to still use Acrobat Reader DC to open PDF files. I can't find anything in preferences to direct PDF files to Acrobat Reader DC. When I right-click "open" on a PDF file, it does not give me the option to choose a program to open it with. It opens directly into a new Thunderbird tab.

New update (91) has attachments for outgoing messages on the bottom of the window. This is OK for Inbox, but for outgoing it's too easy to miss.

I have a strong preference for the Top Right placement like it was before. For anyone with QHD+ (and even 1080p) resolution, that portion of the UI is empty in 98% of cases. It may look slightly prettier, but I'm not sure what type of *functional* advantage you're gaining by moving attachments to the bottom like you did in this latest update (91). Function is all I, and likely most of your users, care about.

If your UX designers are stuck on this move, can we at least get an option in setting to move it back to Top Right in a future update?

Thanks!

My question is, there is a menu bar between the headers (top) and were you read the message (bottom)in the middle of the screen. It displays from, subject and to information on the left and on the right has the reply,delete etc tabs. I am not sure what this bar is called.

In any event , I see there is a arrow to minimize it to one line, which is what I want. How ever the problem with that, the tabs disappear, which I dont want. In other words,what I want in that menu is the from info and the tabs to the right. I dont need the subject and to info to show

In version 78, I had a add on that made it one line, but left the tabs button showing. What can I do to make this happen in version 91 Thanks in advance

Since I downloaded TB 91.2.0, when I am starting it all my folders in the folder panel are developed. It is really annoying as I have hundred of folders that I need to close manually at every startup. Why can't this version remember the status of which folders were opened and which one were closed?

In the last week, whenever I start typing an email address in the "To" field (or bcc or cc) it autofills with whatever is the top entry, but sometimes this isn't what you want.

When you hover the cursor over other items you can't select or "lock in" another entry, which might be the one you want. As you move the cursor up and down, the addresses jump and and down and wherever the cursor is shows blank. So, to get the address you want, you have to keep typing. That causes problems if for example a person has more than one email address.

An example: you want an address that is of the form "info@ ...". The first suggestion comes up - and then you cannot use the mouse to select another choice.

Something has changed recently. Please advise.

Can you please assist with this?

Good evening, I updated Thunderbird 91.2.0 - 64bit on Windows 10. I wanted to change the email signature. I did as always, going to the Account Settings and entering the HTML code generated with Thunderbird in the text box for signature and selecting the "Use HTML" flag. The problem is that at the bottom of the Account Settings tab I can no longer find the OK button to confirm the settings and when I close the Account Settings tab, the signature is lost. I kindly ask you for help. Thank you all

Hi,

Since my last Thunderbird update, I have noticed that although I use the (and have tried many), dark themes, for some reason it reverts back to all white. I have not been able to predict when this happens. It is seemingly random. I feel there may be a compatibility issue with other add on extensions I am using, but am unsure.

Dose anyone know of this issue?

All I want is a dark theme. But, since it is changing back to all white randomly, I must keep the extensions tab open to disable/re-enable the dark theme every time this happens. If fixes it, but it just keeps happening. Can I get any advice on how to fix this annoying problem?

Thank You,

Jason
