Windows 10 OS Build:19043.1202

Thunderbird 91.1.0

Notifications are Intermittent. Meaning usually I will get a red dot on the system tray icon. Most times I will get the popup/banner notification. Randomly they do not appear either of them and there is new mail.

Toggling use system notifications on/off has not helped anything.

I just installed the latest release (78.14.0) and now I can't walk through my emails by subject using the arrows keys. Previously this was the best way to walk through the messages as the active one was in a highlighted blue but now it becomes grey at the moment the message is moved to "read" status and the arrow key has then no effect. I am forced then to use the mouse pointer to move up or down. This is a huge regression in terms of ergonomy.

Please fix this urgently

Following the recent upgrade to 91.1.0 (from 78.13.0) Thunderbird no longer shows an icon in the system tray when a new email is detected.

I have the server settings so that Thunderbird does not download emails automatically. On detection of an email on the server, the name of the mailbox turns blue and a sound is played but the icon is absent. The icon only appears once the email is downloaded from the server AND the email remains in the inbox after filtering. If the email goes through a filter there is no icon shown. This seems rather to defeat the purpose of the system tray notification.

I find the system tray notification very useful as a quick visual check, especially if I've been away for a while and haven't heard the sound. Otherwise I have to open the application up to check the colour of the mailbox.

Since I set up Thunderbird on my new computer a few weeks ago I've had to switch "Sort by" back to threaded view every few days. This never happened on other computers I've owned over the decades.

My best guess is that I'm missing something in the preferences or account settings but I'm not finding it in the menus or in the support forum.

I prefer to use identities on a per newsgroup basis but sometimes goof it up by mistakenly (default-trapping to last-used id?) with something like "guitar god" on a forestry group where I would normally use "chainsaw" instead (just by way of theoretical examples), which can lead to embare-assing confusion so this is a feature request of sorts, I'd like to constrain any given identity to one or more destination addresses if that were possible, perhaps resulting in only those identities allowed to drop-list for the group to which I'm composing a message.

I was reading some tech news this morning and came across a discussion from Linus Torvalds regarding github merges. Within that, I noticed that the emails generated when adjudicating pull requests contain mailto: links such as the following. Even after adding "In-Reply-To" as a custom header in the config editor (see https://superuser.com/questions/1177870/how-to-manually-set-the-in-reply-to-header-in-thunderbird) the below link does NOT open a window with a populated In-Reply-To header.

It seems that maybe the URL parser for opening new emails does not read the custom header setting. Maybe it should? Or am I missing a configuration?

I'm using version 78.14 on an iMac. I have two new problems: missing menu bar (have to pull it down, and it doesn't stay), and the folder pane appearing minimised at start-up (have to maximise each time). Any ideas how to solve? I've seen on Mozilla support a message that 'For Mac users, it is not possible to hide the Menu Bar, so Mac users always see the Menu Bar.', but this is not the case for me.

I'd swear at one point tasks showed in my calendar then they did not and now they are again.

I'm looking to see tasks only on the task tab and events only on the calendar tab. If I click local tasks to hide them in calendar, it also hides them in the task tab. I just upgraded to 78.14.0 (64-bit) yesterday and again I'd swear the behavior was different in the prior version.

After updating to 91 I cannot edit search folders, making me unable to search in two different folders. I can only search in one folder with or without its subfolders.

The procedure to reproduce is the following: - create a new search folder - try to edit the selected folders - when you click on "OK", the popup becomes larger and cannot be selected nor closed.

The other window responds but I cannot close the popup and have to force thunderbird to quit.

I have about 12 accounts in TB. They are gmail, yahoo, outlook, and ZOHO.

On my tablet computer (Windows 8.1, latest TB) TB will be working fine for a few days. Then it will no longer retrieve the new contents of the inboxes. When I click Get All new messages nothing happens and the status bar at the bottom does not change.

If I select any Inbox I will see a spinning blue circle (SBC). This will continue forever. If I select another folder (Sent, Archives, etc) Ii will see the SBC for a few seconds then it goes away. It does this for the inboxes of all accounts.

I can go to my phone and using the mail app that came with the phone I can see a whole lot of new messages that are not showing in the TB inboxes.

If I then terminate TB and restart it, all the new message headers will appear in all the inboxes. TB will then work fine for a few days.

I also have the same configuration of TB on my Windows 8.1 desktop and it always works and never exhibits this problem.

My company recently abandoned an on-premise IMAP/SMTP server for Office 365. 2FA is in place, so AFAIK my only option is to use the paid OWL addon. Now I can easily delete my old IMAP server from my profile, but I cannot remove the SMTP server since it is my only one, hence the default one. I don't need a SMTP server since OWL does not rely on SMTP to send mails. Is there a way I can do it, possibly messing with some configuration file? I would very much prefer not to need creating a new profile and migrate all my settings and "Local folders" email archive just for that.

Hello. I hope everyone is healthy and safe.

78.13.0 (64-bit) on Ubuntu 20.04.

Message fail to be sorted to appropriate filtered folders/sub-folders with message: The messages could not be filtered to folder because adding a message to it failed.

I've deleted the humongous global-messages-db.sqlite-journal and rebuilt that. I've deleted all thunderbird msgFilterRules.dat rules and rebuilt them.

All to no avail. I keep getting this message.

The messages are constant enough that I'm seriously considering leaving Thunderbird after many happy years of use.

Suggestions please. Thanks.
