When I double click on a meesage in the main screen, it opens in a new window. However, for the last few months, Thunderbird has been creating unwanted tabs for some (but not all) messages, across the top of the main screen. I then have to close each of these. I have looked at Options and switched the tab option off, as far as I can see. Have I missed something please?

Since updating to 102.1 all words in quotes and new text in replies are marked red/wavy-underline as spell errors (as you type check is on). Right-click to correct shows no errors even if word is wrong.

This happens with English (Canada and UK) but not English US. [Cdn English is required.]

I have reinstalled the Canadian language pack but it still happens.

Tried switching languages, turning check on/off, restarting TB and more.

Ideas?

Hello.

Two people work on two computers with the same email account. When I mark an email with a star symbol, it means that I'm done with the mail. The problem is, that the star is also showing on the other computer, so the other person, which, not neccessarily is done with it, have the email as "marked". Is there any addon that maybe adds another column with a different star or something like that? We tried marking the mails as "important" but this is very confusing. Or maybe some option, that star system would work locally? Or maybe there is a different way entirelly that two people can work on the same mail address without flagging each others mails? Uhm, prefferably without use of folders or making copies of mails?

Thank you.

Why is it that Thunderbird does not offer "Format" in the top menu ? I'm 78 years old and not only like larger type but larger type is easier on my ancient eyes. For example, when I write I use Arial, NOT, TIMES NEW ROMAN, and I use font size 13 or larger. Does TB offer composing choices I usually use in WORDPERFECT? NO! And if such choices are available on the composing page, it's a well kept secret. You want my donation? Not until you make TB more intuitive and more like a word processor processor program. Short of adding "FORMAT" to the menu line, how about a MAP, a step-by-step page of directions that would help me compose in TB's nonintuitive process?

I have my RSS feeds organized in folders like so:

folder_1

    feed_1
    feed_2

folder_2

    feed_3
    feed_4

Currently if I click on a specific folder it just shows me all the feeds that are in it. So for example for folder_1 it would show me both feed_1 and feed_2. Is there any way I can "expand" the folder to view only one specific feed?

Hi.

I want to set an email reply with the same tag as the original message.

Imagine that I receive a mail from someone and I set the tag "Product Order". If I reply to an email that as a tag, in this case, "Product Order", I want that, the message on the sent folder is automatically set with the "Product Order" tag.

Is this possible?

I'm not being able to manage to do this with the filters.

Thanks.

I am transferring a huge mass of emails from many accounts to a new machine. To start with, I have chosen to export the Local Folders. For that purpose I have installed the extension ImportExportTools NG and used all combinations I could think of like "Export Folder" or "Export Folder with subfolders". When trying to import them on the new system, I always get empty folders, or the message 'This "MBOX" file uses a different format from the Thunderbird folder format and it's possible that Thunderbird can't handle it properly'.

And sure enough, the resulting folder is corrupted with messages that can't be read.

First of all, I don't know if the files are really MBOX files, because they have no extension, and if not, how do I generate proper MBOX files? Secondly, if these are MBOX files, why can't ImportExportTools NG not handle the files it has just generated?

Alternatively, I could also copy the folders directly, but would that not mess up the internal database?

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

Hi everyone,

and thanks in advance for your support!

I have the following question concerning CSS styling:

In userChrome.css, how can I change the background color of the entire row — and not only the cell — for unread messages and messages that have already been replied to?

Here is how I change the background color of the cell:

   threadTree treechildren::-moz-tree-cell(unread) { background-color: green !important; }
   threadTree treechildren::-moz-tree-cell(replied) { background-color: red !important; } 

This results in the following two problems:

(1) it leaves a space at the right with another background color (in the row but outside the cell)

(2) it renders the color change of the row when it's selected or hovered over with the mouse ineffective as the cell background color seems to "cover" the background color of the row.

How can I solve that?
