How do I disable automatic tab reopen in Thunderbird?

I normally open messages in tabs under exactly one circumstance: when I right-click on a message and explicitly open it in a tab.

I've found that (until I changed the handling of PDFs to "Save file") any PDFs that opened using Thunderbird's preview function would reopen if I closed and relaunched Thunderbird. This is not desired behavior.

I will also note that if I open Settings, it opens in a tab, rather than a separate window. This is neither expected nor desired (and my natural reaction is to click the close button on the window, closing Thunderbird, because "Settings" is something I expect to be in a window, not a tab. And that, too, reopens if I reopen Thunderbird.

And worst of all, those tabs that shouldn't be reopening at all are reopening in front of the main tab.

There was an extension called "Thunderbird-DontRestoreTabs," that would do exactly what I want, but that was made obsolete when the underlying extension technology was deprecated, so it is of no use in 115.9.0.

Hey there Team!

So I flipped my table because of the new Outlook update and I'm beyond frustrated.

Not only it does not show the unread email count but also stopped working for my work email, making me miss a serious meeting!

This is ridiculous!

So now I'm transitioning to Thunderbird however, my Inbox is showing the total amount of emails. This is not what I need. What I need is the unread amount of emails.

On top of this, if I minimize the email, the Inbox amount count merges with the amount count of Sent Items. This is not what I need either... What I need is to solely have the amount of unread emails.

How can I achieve solely unread email count with Thunderbird?

Please keep me posted as I'm losing my last screw over setting up something as basic as this. -Val

Hello everybody,

I have includes 4 different email adresses in Thunderbird. All of them as IMAP. All the time everthing works fine, but for the last 2 weeks Thinderbird doesnt syncronize correctly.

For example: Thunderbird sees, that there are 8 unread messages in inbox, but at the same time Thunderbird does show me only 5 of them in the inbox. (When I login the the eMail-provider then there are all the 8 messages)

The "repair"-tool did not help so far. Diffrent mail-adresses show similar behavior.

I need a good idea.

Thanks a lot!

I want to delete a mail folder from an IMAP server. When clicking "Delete" in right-click menu, Thunderbird tries to move it to trash. This fails for folders that are shared from another user with error "[CANNOT] Renaming not supported across non-private namespaces". When I switch the "When I delete a message" setting to "Remove it immediately" the folder is deleted correctly. Is it possible to do this just for folders? I tried Shift+Delete and holding Shift while clicking Delete but both did not work, Thunderbird tried and failed to move the folder to trash as usual. It would however be most useful if after failing to move the folder to trash it would give me an option to delete it permanently instead.

Left Mac Mail for TB (on Fedora). I am trying to replicate my signature from Mac Mail but I can't seem to format it nicely. I had some legal disclaimer text which was small font (8) and gray rather than black. I tried pasting the text into the signature box in account settings but it's just plain text. is there some way to activate a rich text/html editor to make it look a bit nicer? thanks

Hi!

I presumed that the settings for copies to self when sending works for both replies and forwards, but I just discovered that it only works for replies. That is NOT satisfactory, and not logical - if you ask me.

I think it worked until about 2 years ago, when Thunderbird was seriously damaged by "updates", and has not yet recovered fully...

I have attached an anonymized screenshot of the "Place a copy in" settings. The sending email address is behind 3 of the erased areas. Only "Bcc these" is different.

Any solution would be appreciated. Thank you.

I just updated Thunderbird to 115.9.0 (64-bit) after many years. Took me a bit to get used to the new look-and-feel, but I do like it. Just noticed a change in how the compacting looks. With my old version, each time I did the compacting, I could see the progress down on the status toolbar, where it showed each folder as it was compacted on the left side and on the right side, a progress bar. I'm not seeing that now. In fact, I don't see any indication of the compacting progress at all. Am I missing something obvious? Thank you

My Thunderbird 115.9.0 message pane/Inbox font is set at 7px by default...too small for me. The Font Size adjustment under the "hamburger" does not work though the Density adjustment does. Per the known issue, I've checked layout.css.devPixelsPerPx and mail.uifontsize and they were both fine (not needing to be reset). I'm using Windows 11 Home, version 23H2. Hoping someone has a solution....thanks!

Good afternoon to all.

I use Message Filters to automatically send certain emails to two specific folders upon receipt, based on some defined rules (mainly who the sender is). Yesterday, I accidentally clicked "Run Filters on Folder", and the actions for my filter rules ran on every folder in my account, including my Archive folder. I could not find a way to stop the action once it started, so hundreds of archived emails were pulled out of the Archive folder and repopulated into my two specified folders. In each of these specified folders, I had a handful of emails stored in order to be able to come back to them as reference or to deal with later; I remember what some of these emails were, but I don't necessarily remember all of them, and now they're mixed in with the hundreds of emails that were brought back from the archive.

So, I have two main questions:

1. How can I prevent this from ever happening again? Is there a way that I can tell the message filters that a filter should never be run on archived messages?

2. Is there a way I can "undo"/reverse what happened, so that the previously-archived emails are sent back to the Archive? Or is there at least a way to identify which emails were in the two specified folders before they were inundated with all the messages from the Archive?

Thank you.

Hi everyone,

I am trying to setup Thunderbird to work with my company Exchange account (have installed TBsync and provider for exchange tbsync). It works well but Thunderbird has created on the server sent/trash/archive/drafts folders instead of using the ones that exists, and thus I can't access my history when I am in Thunderbird.

Is there anyway to parameter this? I couldn't find any, there are only options to store in local or on the folder created by Thunderbird (see picture). Thanks in advance for your answers!
