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!

I am using Thunderbird 78.7.1 (64-bit) on Ubuntu, dark theme. On some incoming email, it is white text on white background. I believe this is email that the sender has created on outlook. I have to highlight the text to read their email. Is there a fix for this on my side? Same with any theme I try. Under fonts and colors I went to colors and set Override the colors specified by the content with my selections above to "always" but it changed the Thunderbird menus and made them unusable. Tried "only with high contrast" option with no change.

Thank you.

Hi,

For the last 3 days I have been receiving the same pop up about a calendar event I am not even aware of and it will not go away no matter what I click on. It just keeps coming back and I can't use Thunderbird. I am concerned about uninstalling Thunderbird and reinstalling since I don't know if my email history et al will be there upon reinstall. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm using Mail Merge, but don't want to save copies of all the sent emails in the Sent folder. I uncheck the "Place Copy In:" box under Copies and Folders. When I do this, individual emails I write are not copied to the Sent folder, which is to be expected. However, when I run Mail Merge, it places all the created messages in the Outbox of Local folder, (as expected) and when I select "Send unsent Messages", it sends the messages and copies each to the Sent box of the account used to create them. How do I prevent them from being copied to the Sent box?

Hi

Since yesterday I have had the following issue with Thunderbird.

I'll recieve an email and when I go to respond, the TO field will duplicate the email address of the intended recipient each time I attempt to send and the email will not send. I did manage to find a work around whereby I manually respond on a fresh email instead of a chain but this doesn't seem to work either now.

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.

When I open Tbird (version 78.7.1) and go to Calendar page the calendars are all listed but the entries are not visible. I have to click on each to "hide" (though they are already hidden in effect) then click to unhide them and they instantly appear. I have looked at help pages for Tbird and "Provider for Google Calendar" (the add-on I am using) but cannot find anything that helps me. This has been a problem for 6 months or more and it has finally driven me to ask if anyone has a solution. The calendar entries used to be immediately visible when I opened Calendar. I thought it must have been a bug and would be fixed, but not so far for me. I attach a couple of screen shots if that helps. The first is just the opening calendar screen - no entries showing. The second is the page after I have clicked on each of three calendars – twice each– once to “hide” (even though I could not see it) then again to display. I have clicked on the calendar highlighted in blue once only and you can see it has the eye with a line through it to say it is not visible. Thank you in anticipation of your advice. I think Thunderbird is a great product - ideal for me nearly all of the time.

Hi guys, I have Thunderbird 78. I also have yubikey 5. I use ybk with pgp keys to login to other systems. I found a problem. When ybk is inserted there is a problem, Thunderbird hangs (sometimes) and can not send any messages (it says that is connected with the smtp server, progress bar shows full/100% and it hangs up). I have to disconnect ybk, turn off Thunderbird, turn on - then the error message appears (pic) that informs me that Thunderbird is working, I have to press the "close Thunderbird" and then I can use Thunderbird again. That solves the problem.

Any idea ?

Hi, I am using Thunderbird 78.8.0 including the calendar. Since a couple of months (download 78.0.0 version?), I can not drag & drop an .ics file anymore, which is attached to an email message, to the "daily schedule" view at the right side of the screen, in order to import the data into the calendar. While I am doing this, the screen "new date" is opening, without any content. Before, this way was easily working.

Instead of I have to download the file, first, and then import the file to the calendar. This way is less convenient.

Any help will be highly appreciated.

Thank you very much!
