There are many questions and a few answers but none provides a real solution. I want to increase ONLY the font size in the message list.

layout.css.devPixelsPerPx increases the size of everything: buttons, fonts, etc. This is not a solution to this problem.

The other solution proposed to add * { font-size: 24px !important; } to the userChrome.css is also not a solution because it increases the font size everywhere.

So how can the font size of the different panes be controlled separately?

Hi there I have just installed Thunderbird 91.1.1 (64-bit) Mac. Always used to use Thunderbird, but on my MacBook Pro the font in the pane that displays all the new emails is so small I find I cant see them properly. Is there a way of making the font bigger so that I can see list of emails in the inbox clearer? I have attached a screenshot.

I used TB for ages but then it started to open not with the Inbox, which I like, but with the Preferences page which I do not like. No matter what I do I can't seem to change it. I've been using Gmail for a while but I want to get back to TB but it's still doing what I don't want. Can anyone help. Happy to post stuff to show what I mean; just tell me what. Thanks.

I am using Thunderbird 78.13.0 on two machines: 1) An older desktop with Kubuntu 20.04 2) A new notebook with Kubuntu 21.04

On machine 1 there is a strange (probably buggy) font behavior. I made these selections in "preferences | language & appearance": -- "allow .. other font" checked -- "use fixed .. plain .." checked

But when reading HTML messages (not plain font), either incoming or my own, the program understands them as plain text and displays them incorrectly in fixed width font.

This problem does not occur on machine 2.

Screenshots attached.

Please advise.

I just downloaded and installed Thunderbird on a new computer. This latest version I just downloaded is 91.1.1 It no longer seems to provide any way to enable headers Unread and Total over the account folders pane. So there are no columns that show numbers for each folder's Unread and Total email counts. I can't see the email counts at a glance.

I can't find a way to enable those columns. I must be overlooking something.

How can I enable those headers+columns?


separately In desperation I enabled those headers (Unread and Total) over the email pane of one account's inbox. Then shifted them over to the left for better visibility. But no actual number appears beneath them in those two columns. I can't imagine what sense it makes to have those headers+columns in the email view pane anyway. Just out of idle curiosity, what use is there in the email pane to have Unread and Total headers+columns?

This new version, 91.0, now opens PDF files in a new Thunderbird tab. In previous versions, I could open PDF files in Acrobat Reader DC.

I want to still use Acrobat Reader DC to open PDF files. I can't find anything in preferences to direct PDF files to Acrobat Reader DC. When I right-click "open" on a PDF file, it does not give me the option to choose a program to open it with. It opens directly into a new Thunderbird tab.

Oh, yeah - this is a new computer I've installed TB on, Win 10.

Filters don't always work on new messages in the Inbox.

Most of my filters are set to look for specific "From" entries then move them to the appropriate folders for each message. When email is downloaded from the server some filters work, but some hang up and require me to click on the displayed message to acknowledge that message. Once all the acknowledgements have been done, and while I am still in the Inbox, I then click on "Tools/Run Filters on Folder" and ALL of the messages that did not originally get moved to the correct folders per the filters set for them, now work beautifully!

Why won't some filters work when first run on Inbox, but they work later, and how can I avoid the laborious manual response requirement for those that don't work the first time? I should add that there is no consistency to which filters run, or do not run. Even when I go to the folder for a message that did not get moved to that folder, and "fix" that folder, some future messages still don't get moved the first time through running filters when those messages arrive in the Inbox.

I am not able to disable SpamAssassinYes filter. If I remove it then when I close and open TB the SpamAssassinYes filter is still there. If I disable it then when I close and open TB the SpamAssassinYes filter is still there. If I move down then when I close and open TB the SpamAssassinYes filter is still there.

I'd like to disable it since keeps to move messages in spam folder even if those messages are not spam and even if I keep mark them as "not spam".

I think this is a bug, since I am not able to remove SpamAssassinYes filter I would like to teach it that a message is NOT SPAM.

Thanks

I don't know whether if's Thunderbird itself, or my theme, but the actual incoming email has a hanging header that takes up too much of my screen so that I can only see a couple of lines of text, while keeping the header stationary. I have aging vision and set my text to a large size - so it really impacts my ability to read the message fluently. I have neither dementia or Alzheimer's, so I have no need to have the header constantly in my face while obscuring all but two lines of the message at a time.

I spent some time looking at themes and found that very few of them show a sample message screen. And the ones that do, do not indicate whether the header is stationary (rolls up as the text gets scrolled in) or fixed (a hanging header).

I'm attaching a screenshot I took of an email.  I have obscured email addresses and put a small grey line at the bottom of the header, so you will be able to see how much of the screen is taken by a header that won't roll away.

It started when my provider changed something. An incredible amount of folders I never made. In the webmail, there is no such thing as these folders.

All those useless folders are empty. Removing them doesn't help. The next moment you watch they are back again.
