Workaround for "Theme Font & Size Changer for Thunderbird is incompatible with Thunderbird 78.7.1"

Please help me. I'm not great with this kind of stuff, but I really depend on Thunderbird! I've been hunting for a solution for hours, and have seen a couple of solutions from Toad-Hall, but I'm confused because those have varied, and I have another question besides.

1) Thunderbird disabled the add-on, but I have seen no difference in my fonts, which I'm happy with, but which is strange... Did this release actually fix the font sizes?

I have not yet removed the Theme Font & Size Changer add-on, because I don't want to be faced with the small text until I'm sure of a solution. In the past 2 days, Thunderbird crashed 3 times, having never crashed before, which brought me to learn about the add-on issue. Is that why it's been crashing?

2) So do I actually need to remove or work around the add-on despite its apparent preferred size? Or else in simple terms please explain how to work around the add-on, and also in what order I should remove the disabled add-on. I really appreciate the help.

About a month or so ago Thunderbird updated. After that one of my email groups of 54 addresses no longer went on separate Bcc rows but were all included in one row. That was around the time when my ip address became blacklisted by Spamhaus and MXToolbox. Now they want $100 a month in fees to ensure my emails get through because they are all being returned to me as spam now.

I want to go back to placing each of my address book contacts into SEPARATE BCC rows by using a global drag and drop, not an individual posting.

Can anyone show me how to do that as I have been unable to discover how to get back to that old way. Vic

I am a very long-time user of Thunderbird (and have been using it under Win 10 for several years) I do not know when my Thunderbird updated to 78.9.1

Encountering a weird problem today with Thunderbird when I try to create an outgoing email...

If I click the "Address Book" tab, all my saved addressees are intact, so that function is normal. If I click the "Write" icon (or "Reply" button when I am viewing a received email), I get a window (sample image uploaded) that has no email addressees from my address book to choose from, and even if I manually fill in an email addressee, there is no "send" button. Am I missing something obvious here?

If the recommended solution is to download and (re)install Thunderbird, will the (re)install keep all my old settings, emails, local folders, etc?

How can I change my Thunderbird settings to include entire list of people when I reply to an email? Currently, it just says

"On 4/15/2021 10:14 AM, LastName, FirstName wrote:"

But what I really want is something like the following (so that when I read the quoted text I can always see who was included in the email):

"----- Original Message ----- From: LastName, FirstName <email> Sent: Thursday, April 15, 2021 4:04 PM To: LastNameX, FirstNameX <email>; LastNameY, FirstNameY <email>;LastNameZ, FirstNameZ <email> Cc: LastNameA, FirstNameA <email> Subject: Imporant topic X"

I am migrating from The Bat! email client (still adore it most, but switching primarily to Linux). I have thousands of emails and are prepping them for conversion.

From screenshots of Thunderbird, it doesn't look that like both clients have the same Message List Columns/Message Fields, so I may lose information in the conversion. I am looking for an official list of all the fields available in Thunderbird so that I may compare and make changes in The Bat! first.

One example, I currently use a Memo field, which is in addition to a Tag field. Will Thunderbird support that?

Any guidance or information is appreciated. Thank you!

Is gContactSync likely to be modified to work with the latest version of Thunderbird? For the moment I have copied my Google contacts to the Address Book, but would dearly like to have the two synchronised as before!

Or has the developer of this excellent add-on retired or decided he/she does not want to play any more?

I downloaded some extension (sorry, forgot which) and it changed the way the left pane looks like. Instead of each email separate, each with a sub-category of Inbox, Drafts, Sent, etc., now all the Inboxes are grouped under one category, each "Sent" under another, etc.

So it changed from the first picture (or similar to it since I got that pic off the internet), to the second

Please how do I revert it so that each individual email has its own Inbox, Sent, etc. separate from another email's?

Is there a way to get an indication of unread emails on the taskbar icon under Windows 10? On the Mac version, there would be a red dot on the icon if there was an unread email, no matter how many accounts you have. I have the email notification turned on in my tray, but as soon as I open Thunderbird, and click on an unread email, it goes away, even if I have other unread emails.

Not a show stopper, but it makes it easier when you have multiple email accounts.

Many thanx,

Homer

I am unable to apply windows customization to the cursor in thunderbird.

As i write emails, the finding where the cursor is difficult because it is an itty bitty thin line instead of a thick bold line as set by windows accesiability features.

Please figure out how we can see the text cursor more clearly in Tbird. Thanks!

I'm writing a bootstrap Add-On for Thunderbird 24.3.0 on a Ubuntu 13.10 computer.

When trying to execute the following code snippet (taken for Mozilla Developer Network)

    var req = new XMLHttpRequest();
    req.open('GET', 'http://www.mozilla.org/', false); 
    req.send(null);
    if(req.status == 200)
        dump(req.responseText);

I get "ReferenceError: XMLHttpRequest is not defined" on the Error Console when trying to create the object.

This problem looks very similar to Firefox's:

In the main Inbox view of Thunderbird, everything above the tabs is missing. It is transparent, but the area is still part of the Thunderbird window and clicking it keeps the focus in that window. I am running 24.3.0. I have encountered two possible fixes for this (one was related to themes, but I'm using the original theme, the other was to hit toggle fullscreen - in my case, F11 appears to be disabled or broken), but haven't been able to solve the problem. I am running Windows 7 Pro SP1, x64

I tried to follow advise in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/print-list-messages by installing ImportExportTools-2.8.0.4.xpi from https://freeshell.de//~kaosmos/mboximport-en.html on Thunderbird version 24.3.2. The description on how to install did not work, as the Tools -> Add-ons did not have any option to directly install an xpi file. I found a way to install by sending the xpi file to myself as an attachment, and when opening the attatchment, I got an install option. When I clicked "Install now", nothing happened, and I did not get a new menu item it the tools menu named ImportExportTools.

Is this add-on compatible with my version of Thunderbird? How can I alternatively get functionality available in this add-on?

Best regards,

I'm giving thunderbird another go after a few years (moving from mail.app). I got through gmail setup but I'm still at a loss as to what the difference is between the Archives folders in TB and Gmail's All Mail. I have my gmail accounts setup to archive to the all mail folder, which they do. However, I still see and Archive folder for Gmail in the sidebar and it acts just like the all mail folder (AFAICT) inside the online IMAP folders.

Can someone clear this up for me. Is the archive folder just a more direct route to "all mail"?

Some background: Mac OS X 10.9.1, thunderbird 24.3.0 gmail through IMAP.

Thanks.
