Themes don't work properly in v78.0.1-You activate a given theme which starts up and looks proper until you close Thunderbird. When you start it again it no longer works even though it is still shown active in add-ons-themes.

Tags and colors are not holding their settings. Out of 4 designer computers, only ONE is working correctly. Why will it not hold its settings. All computers are Windows 10. This happens with 32-bit and 64-bit Thunderbird.

I prefer to read my message in separate windows (as opposed to inline in the main window). So I often end up with quite a few of them hanging around. When I quit Thunderbird, they do not close with the main window.

I looked in options and looked for an add-on. Is the someway to have Thunderbird close all the sub-windows when the main one is closed?

thanks

A week ago I had a smoothly running Thunderbird automatic daily backup facility which worked really well. After installing a new hard drive this week and reinstalling Thunderbird v78, I find that there does not appear to be any backup, import or export add on that will work with this version. Am I mistaken or should I be looking for alternative email software as this facility is important to me with 7 email accounts?

Mac Voice Control not working in Thunderbird, but older Dictation does....?

Does anyone know why Apple OS Voice Control does not work in Thunderbird? I wake up Voice Control, try to dictate a sentence in a new mail message window and nothing shows up. Dictation works in Ms Word, Safari browser, and all other apps.

My Macbook Pro used to have Dictation and Enhanced dictation. With the Catalina OS-- Enhanced Dictation was renamed "Voice Control". Standard dictation remains and it works in Thunderbird, but Voice Control is a lot better. The two cannot run simultanously. I am on 68.10.0 and Mac OS Catalina 10.15.6

Hope Accessibility is important and someone can assist. Wrist injury means I need dictation.

No more updates for me. Everytime you update you screw up something. The last update had my Emoji add on no longer function. I finally have it fixed but the emoji link at the top of the new email is no longer there. I have them displayed on the right panel always. I'm not going to let you screw it up again.

I have just updated to TB 78 (Windows 10) and am slightly regretting it.

I don't like the bright blue icon that appears against each email account name in the folders pane.

I have 9 email accounts and in previous versions a bright blue account name alerts me that new unread mail has arrived in that account. However now (version 78) there is also a bright blue icon against every account name - even accounts that have no new mail and do not need my eyes attracted to them.

I would prefer any of the following: - no account icon - account icon always black - account icon same color as account name (i.e. turns from black to blue if new unread mail arrives)

Is there anyway I can customize version 78 to achieve any of the above?

Thanks.

In Thunderbird, my type size is set to Medium but displays Small on my computer, although the recipients see it as Medium. When I increase the type size using the up-arrow letter to see more clearly what I'm writing, my display becomes Medium, but my email recipients receive a Large-size message. How do I make the type size display correctly on my computer, that is, display in the size I have selected? This problem started when my cat walked on my keyboard, so she must have somehow changed a setting I can't find. Thank you!

I have a dual monitor setup with TB on Monitor 2. When I send an email the spell check popup appears at the top left corner of monitor 1 (about as far away from the compose window as possible). This is a new behavior, it used to appear near the compose window on mon. 2.

How can I control where this popup appears?

I've tried simply moving it before sending, but it goes back for the next composition.

Thanks

Thunderbird has a throbber in the status bar that animates when it's doing something, like checking or sending mail.

Lately my throbber has started to animate for long periods for no apparent reason. (No active tasks are shown in the activity manager.) The animation is very distracting. I've been trying to determine whether the cause might be a misbehaving add-on or mail/news server, but it's slow going as the problem is not always reproducible.

In the meantime, is there any way I can disable the throbber altogether?

I am an 86 year old antediluvian who can't find a basic log-in account. As soon as I hit the Thunderbird file I find myself right into the Thunderbird mail account with a mini window asking that I confirm/change my 'mail.' password - what password? To the best of my knowledge I have never entered one. I must have changed it a hundred times now and none get accepted! Furthermore there does not appear to be any help advice on what to do next. And boy do I need help.
