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 !

When I receive attachments like image.bmp , image.gif, image.jpeg and image.png in Thunderbird, I can simply double click on the attached filenames to open them in Photos. But double clicking on attached image.jpg doesn't work, and I must first save it to some folder and there double click to open it in Photos.

So how do I add "JPG Image" to [Tools/Settings/General/Files & Attachments/Content Type] where the other image types are listed?

This has been an issue for a while since 102. I've seen others posting about it and there hasn't been any answer yet that reportedly works.

Since 102 and every update following, Thunderbird shows only a dark mode (black/dark grey) background to all the white spaces unless you are using either the default Thunderbird theme, or the Mozilla Light theme. However other themes I have were all previously light-mode and now they are broken.

I have already checked a) hardware acceleration being off/on b) Settings>Language & Appearance> and played with the Use System Colors, Override the Colors Specified.

None of these settings had any effect on any of the themes that have been broken by this.

Attaching screens to illustrate how the 'dark mode' on non-dark themes looks, and the difference between the two Mozilla light modes. I've showed the two default themes that are light mode, and how that looks, and one custom theme exemplifying how the 'dark mode' looks incorrect. Message windows still display as light, but not the rest of the dark space.

It would be nice if this could get fixed. I like my old themes and haven't been able to use one for a long time because of this.

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 use Thunderbird with two different ISPs (one with multiple email accounts), which require different outgoing mail servers. In the Outgoing Server (SMTP) Settings box, one of these is set as the default - i.e. in bold with (Default) after the server address. I can change which of the the email accounts is the default (and therefore its outgoing server) using the Set Default button to the right of this box, but I can find no way to deselect any of them from being the default. How do you do this?

Hi

On a recent automatic update, my mail merge extension was replaced. I can no longer find the old extension. Is there any way to relocate it and reinstall perhaps to an older version of Thunderbird? I think the old extension was v. 3.8.0 from an Alexander Bergman.

Thanks in advance.

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!

Running 64 bit 102.50 in WIN 7 PRO I have two accounts. Thunderbird confuses the user id's of the two accounts such that when sending from account 2 it uses the user id of account 1 and thus fails. I cannot configure the SMTP servers to prevent this, cannot clearly differentiate credential configuration for the default vs non-default SMTP servers

Hi,

If I'm running a sort of "client-server" network model setup, I was wondering how I can have thunderbird installed on all computers and when a user logs into the machine for the first time, Thunderbird be already configured with incoming servers, accounts, smtp servers, and everything? Maybe a config file I could export from a current setup and have a policy or logon script run it?

I need a fresh new windows user to be able to log in and have thunderbird already configured to them with specialist stmp servers that I'd need to tell it to use (not the ones thunderbird picks up itself) and have passwords already remembered.

Many thanks

Hello!

Is there a way to change the sort view (of all folders) to 'unthreaded' as default instead of the current default being 'threaded'. (See attached image)

Since the last update, I have to manually change the view to 'unthreaded' for each folder each time I restart Thunderbird. Very cumbersome.

Perhaps somewhere in the Config Editor?

Kind regards

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?
