I Love ThunderBird...its by far the best mail program....I just updated to the latest version 68.1 and everything came across just fine and i was able to get one of my very important add ons....Import/Export tools. However the other vital add on Theme and font changer is not available for this version. The size of the menus is so small as to be almost impossible to read on a small laptop. Any chance of an updated version the the Theme and Font Add On? Thanks

After recovering my email and calendar from a MozBackup file (I know, but it was all I had when the other computer s*** the bed) I have several funky things happening but missing the ability to allow (or not) remote content is the most annoying. None of the fixes I have found have worked. Is there a way to set all Configurations to default? Does anyone have a better fix?

Hello

All my folders with their names and email lists have suddenly reverted to really small font (I can still control font size in emails)

I think I managed this aspect with the theme font and size changer add-on in the past which is still installed but no longer visible in the tool bar.

As others on their website state, this add-on suddenly stopped working for them and became invisible. I've tried ta reinstall but that hasn't worked

The problem now is that the font is so bloody small that I can barely read it.

I just wish Mozilla would work a bit better with add-ons. We really need some of them but they seem to become redundant with every new update. It's really frustrating at the best of times but this is a disaster for me! I need to see emails for my work.

Can anyone help please?

Thanks

Thunderbird 38.0.1 Windows 7.1 Click on "Write". Contacts side bar opens with "All Address Books" as default. It used to default to the LAST USED Address Book. [I've only noticed this new behavior in the last few days.] No matter which address book I select, Write now always opens with "All Address Books". ["All Address Books" displays a combined list of ALL the contacts in ALL the address books]. How do it get it to default to the 'last used' address book please?

I am running on TB release 60.5.0.

In the TB previous release, TF&SC worked fine for text (font) size control on incoming and outgoing messages. In the latest TB release TF&SC does not support the text (font) size.

The text size is miniscule. I can use the "ctrl +/-". However, this procedure is a drag when TF&SC has worked flawlessly in the previous TB release.

Is it not time for TB to have built-in text/font sizing control?

Your help on this issue would be appreciated.

Regards,

Message filters have always worked well for me, but suddenly I cannot get a simple filter like so many others to work.

I want a combination of From address and Subject to cause an email deletion. Most of my filters work this way.

No matter what part of the Subject I use, I can't get this to work. Yes, I know how to set up a filter. I have many filters and they have always worked. But now this one won't work.

What do I do?

The Theme & Font size changer periodically stops working (all the messages become tiny) and goes missing.

I have tried reinstalling version 62.0 for TB, but nothing happens - in the past when I've done a reinstallation it has worked.

Can someone please let me know why this is happening?

P.S. I use the same Theme & font size changer with FF 57.0.4 and it works fine, never goes missing.

I assume it's about the updates but haven't found reference. Now the "choices" are default black or Typing in a "color". I use colors for ongoing conversational emails- the readability of the color is important as well as choice. I also write messages akin to greeting cards to recipients wherein I use color varieties. How do I replace the new font color choice with the old?

Dear Thunderbird community,

I am using a gmail account with Thunderbird. My quota on the gmail imap server is 95%, and I urgently need to free space.

However, I can't understand why is it so. When I receive the mail, I regularly download the mails to Local Folders, leaving only a few emails in the Gmail Inbox and Outbox. The same few emails are also visible from the Gmail account when I access it online ... so why the quota is so high?

In the folder properties (imap://gianluca.polgar%40gmail.com@imap.googlemail.com/INBOX), it says that there are only 79 messages (21.4 MB on disk).

How can I free space from the imap server, and at the same time keep all the emails in the local folders (that is, in my computer)? How should I set my gmail account settings, in order to do so?

Thank you so much for your help.

Gianluca

This often happens, and it stops your support from being any use to me. My current problem is, for instance, that I just want to change the default browser that is opened when I click a link in an email. Your solution page for this (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/make-firefox-your-default-browser) directs me to "preferences", "general" (no problem to find this) and then to a button "make default" that is just not there: my "general" tab window (see encl. screenshot) looks totally different from what you show. I work under Freshbook, an adaptation of Ubuntu.
