TB on Linux Mint 20.1 does not show desired date/time format

I am running TB 78.7.1 (64bit) on Linux Mint 20.1 Ulyssa; Kernel: 5.4.0-66-generic x86_64, Cinnamon 4.8.6

Before I upgraded to the current version, I managed to get an ISO formatted date-time of dd/mm/yyyy HH:mm by going through these steps:

 open Menu | System Settings
 - select Languages
   - select Language support
     - ensure AU is installed, if not install
   - System Locale
     - apply system wide (this is the important bit)
 Close TB
 Open TB and I see a 24h format -> works :)


After the upgrade I ended up with the d/m/yy h:mm AM/PM format. Repeating the same steps (above), does not produce the desired result.

The posts I read all say, the system settings should be reflected in TB, but this was not the case (only after I went through the steps above); and does not work now.

Any hints appreciated.

I'm going through thousands of old emails-- looking to ID key contacts I worked with in various companies.

When I do a search on "@companydomain.com" I may get 50 different contacts in the People section on left. While I see a number showing how many messages they were associated with, I see no way to sort on that number.

Does this exist?

Not the end of the world if not, but would definitely be a time saver. And if it doesn't, perhaps I can throw it on the list of desired features?

Thanks much!

I am trying to filter on mail that I send to a specific forum and I wish to place a copy of the sent mail into my inbox for that forum. The filter that I set on the inbox works correctly but the second filter that I set on the 'sent' folder does not work. I have tried setting the filter on the subject (forum name) and also on the 'recipients' or 'correspondents', neither of which work. Help would be appreciated.

Hi everybody, I hope I'm not posting something already discussed, but I haven't found anything similar.

I would like the count of my accounts on TB (I have more than one) to not include unread messages in the trash and junk mail. Do you know if there is an option or extension to achieve this?

Also, it would be great if I could avoid other account subfolders as well (i.e. in my case Newsletters).

Thank you for any help!

Does anyone know of a way to continue to use the "Tags" add-on with TB V78? I use it very aggressively and it is something I miss terribly with the 78 upgrade. If no, Then because of that and a few other reasons, I'm thinking about downgrading to V68 and may need some help with how to safely do that. Thanks!

In Mac Thunderbird 78, what in the world is Window > Sending Message all about? I sometimes have several of these under my Window item in the menubar. I click on one of them, and nothing happens. It's been hours since I sent any messages, so TB surely isn't sending any messages. I restart TB, and they all go away.

I'm archiving messages in folders with the year as a name, in subfolders of Local Folders - Archives.

In recent years I created just a new folder for the emails of that year. But last year something happened with the 2020 folder. It became a special folder. That means it is not in the right place in the list of folders, it has a different folder icon, and I can't use the 'find duplicate messages' functionality. I don't know why 2021 is a normal folder.

How can I make the 2020 folder a normal folder again, with the icon that is used for the rest?

I downloaded Thunderbird Version 78.8.0 (64 bit for Windows 10) this morning to my new computer. Everything works fine, but I cannot find any tool or option I can use to increase the size of the fonts that are used in the Inbox (I'm old and can't read small type very well). Is there any way to increase he font sizes or change the color of text in these menus and lists? I know I can open an email and enlarge it using my scroll wheel on the cursor, and I can enlarge the screen size in Windows 10, Display Options, but that just runs information off the end of my display. I would appreciate any help that can be provided.

Each of my email account has their own order for the columns in Inbox, Draft, Sent .... e.g. "Sender / Subject/ Date/ Size .... Now when I go from one folder to another, say from Sent to Junk the order and the actual columns change back to some other order e.g.. Thread/Star/Subject/Read/Date/ they are not permanent. I tried Safe Mode but my newly sorted columns still switch back to another (random?) order.
