My has husband has failing eyesight and has given up writing e-mails, primarily because he can't see what he is typing. I have gone to the setting options and changed the font to Arial Rounded and text size to huge and clicked ont the bold text button. However, the changes only last as long as it takes to write and send the e-mail. When he goes back to his Thunderbird program, all those changes have disappeared. How can I set them all to be the default settings in his Thunderbird program? Thanks for any help. --Myra

I have several different email accounts in Thunderbird. I have attached two screen shots. Screenshot 1 is the classic view that I want on the other account, but when I go into change to classic view nothing happens. I have attached screen shot 2 to show the other view which I don't like because my attachments are not with the name. Can you assist me in getting back to the classic view?

My Thunderbird Version 78.6.1 was installed after harddrive lost data and programs and is now configured with Account Server Settings unchecked for new messages at start up. However, messages are always downloaded at start up. Also, once unchecked in Server Settings there is no OK button to confirm uncheked boxes. I had no problem with the lost Thunderbird version but don't know what version it was. Any help to resolve would be appreciated.

Hi,

I keep much information in the "Notes" field of TB's Address Book; but TB's Advanced Address Book Search does not include the "Notes" field in its drop-down menu:

Thunderbird -> Address Book -> Advanced Address Book Search -> Display Name -> Drop Down menu -> many fields EXCEPT for the "Notes" field.

In the past, certain Add-Ons allowed to search the "Notes" field, but those add-ons have been either discontinued or no longer working with my Thunderbird version 68.10.0 (64-bit, Linux).

Is there a way to include the "Notes" field in the "Advanced Address Book Search" ?

Many thanks Chris

I'm now using Thunderbird 78.6. When I reply to an email, more often than not I have to refer to other emails - from the same person, on the same subject, etc. So I want read and unread emails to be available (i.e. listed) all the time, as they used to be, without any effort from me. Now, I have to keep clicking on Unread. I can't find any way of asking for unread emails to be available all the time. Also, when I search for emails, the list can be in either of two formats, the original with one line per email, and another one that gives more information but takes several lines, so fewer emails are on the screen at once. I can't find any way of saying I always want the first format.

I'm getting a lot of spam in Thunderbird from senders with long and highly repetitive nonsense addresses? I think a filter for the sender's address "contains 150 wild card characters" would work but I've not found a way to do this. Does such a wild card character exist in the filter? Is there another way to do this?

Thanks
