Hi everybody,

is there any add-on for version 102.5 (Win 10 Home), which can delete attachments from multiple e-mails at one time? I used Attachment Extractor before but unfortunately doesn't work on this version. Is there any other option?

I know, there is a possibility to downgrade Thunderbird to the 88 version, but it is the last solution for me.

Thanks in advance.

Proof of Concept

Ensure you have at least 2 languages dictionaries installed - I have English (United States), and French.

  1. Go to: Settings > Composition
  2. In Spelling ensure "Enable spellcheck as you type" is checked
  3. Uncheck ALL languages (English (United States), and French for me)
  4. Close Settings
  5. ...
  6. Open a new message
  7. Close the message
  8. ...
  9. Go to Settings > Composition
  10. One of the languages is now checked. (Bug)

~~~~~~~~~~~ The reason I unselect all languages in Settings, is that I don't want a default language when I compose a message. I want to CHOOSE which of my languages I want to spell check with. The main reason I do this is that since 102, we can select multiple languages, which personally I believe is a bad idea, or at least the developers should implement a modifier key to select on and unselect all the others in one click.

In any case, we have a bug here. Thanks!

Hi, hope you're well!

Is there any way to stop this program from relentlessly deleting (important work) emails out my inbox? I have tried every solution posed online when I search the issue, but low and behold every once in a while, when I restart the program, there goes another bunch of emails into the ether? I've looked into the advanced mail.purge settings amongst many others, nothing works, it even deletes 'starred' emails despite that check box being ticked.

I really love every other aspect of this email client, but this is infuriating, can someone please help?

I'm running it in IMAP, because you know, synced email over various platforms is way easier.......at least it should be.

Any knowledge is hugely appreciated, I'm on the brink of switching to a far inferior platform, and really don't want to.

Thanks in advance.

I have 2 dictionary in TB. French and English Since 102, it seems that I can select multiple languages - See uploaded images When multiple are selected, the spell check is confused

So I have to uncheck the other language from the menu very often.

Before 102, I could only select ONE... which is reality for me. I write in one language in a single email.

QUESTION: Is there a way to allow only one language selected. So that when I select one language, the others get unchecked.

Thanks!

Hi all,

Is there a way to display a vertical dashed line (a tree) below expanded folders in folder pane, the same way it's displayed in the message threads pane ? Is there a css customization to do that easily ? Please see the picture below to understand what I mean. On the right, below expanded threads, you have dashed vertical lines that represent the tree structure. I wish we had the same kind of tree displayed in the folder pane.

Thanks !

Hello, I have setup filters in thunderbird for automatic deleting SPAM-emails that contain words like "viagra" "sex" etc.

In rare cases these filters have a flase positive = deleting a non-SPAM-email caused by a keyword of the filter. The filter is setup as logic or-conditions if text contains "viagra" or "sex" or "...." etc. For the false positives I would like to know which keyword did match with the filter-conditions to adapt the filter-conditions.

So if there exists some kind of an add-on for thunderbird for filtering which has a detailed log-function this would be great.

best regards Stefan

P.S.: Of course my email-providers say they use SPAM-filters on their side. But my experience the provider SPAM-filtering lets through some of the SPAM.

As I'm writing here about anti-spam: does anybody know of a SPAM-filter with radical whitelist plus auto-reply for unknown email-adresses and auto-inserting new sendemails to the whitelist?

I'm looking for a way to prevent a certain directory/folder from being synchronized automatically by Thunderbird. The background is, that there is a SPAM IMAP directory where my email provider places emails marked as SPAM. I don't want those emails to get into Thunderbird at all. Would be cool to have a checkbox for each main IMAP folder, if it shall be ignored. Thanks in advance!

I have installed an add on which allows contacts and event synchronization with my office 365 account, so the personal address book is not needed and so I wish to hide it from the address book pane for simplicity sake. I see the delete button is greyed out. That sucks. Can this button be otherwised removed via chrome.css or about:config?

I noticed this on version 91.13.1. Here is the steps to replicate this bug:

1. Search for a particular persons email address (you have to search exactly for that user or otherwise open a message from that user in the search list)

2. Write new message

3. Enter the email address you just searched for as the recipient and watch as a new tab gets opened containing the previous search result you just looked for.

Here's a video showcasing the problem.

I find this really annoying, since I didn't ask for that search result tab to open itself. I was really hoping this would get fixed in the latest build, but it seems I have to reinstall the old version because there is no added benefit to me of using the new version.

For historic reasons (25 years of use :/ ) I view messages in each mailbox by date, ascending, unthreaded. I'm currently using v.102.2.2 (64 bit) on Ubuntu 20.04.

The global setting of view - > sort -> threaded has just switched on all by itself, bit annoying because at first I thought all sorts of messages had been deleted...

I can change to "unthreaded" on a mailbox by mailbox basis except that I have 14,000-odd mailboxes.

I have changed the global settings using: Edit -> settings -> scroll down, clock on "config editor" button Edit "mailnews.default" Set: mailnews.default_news_sort_order 1 (ascending) mailnews.default_news_sort_type 18 (sort on date) mailnews.default_sort_order 1 (ascending) mailnews.default_sort_type 18 (sort on date)

except that although mailnews.default_news_sort_type was set to 22 (threaded) and I have changed it to 18 on a stable basis (it stays at 18) I never use news and so the value for mailnews.default_sort_type was 18 all along.. and the global sort setting (found by looking at a random mailbox) is still set to "threaded" - as if "mailnews.default_sort_type" is not being read. Ideas?

Hello there.

I am using Mozilla Thunderbird on a windows 11 computer with two screens and Brave as a browser.

I have Thunderbird on the left screen and I have a problem, that can be solved in two, which I can't find either of.

When ever I am watching a movie or something else in fullscreen on the screen where Thunderbird is, I can't see the notifications popping up, as I would, when I do not have a fullscreen feature.

I am looking either for a solution to where the notification for a new email can override this fullscreen or I can move it to my other screen. I can't find anything that can do that.

Can you help me?
