Just upgraded from 78 to 91.1.2 and cannot connect to my Box account. I have installed the Add On called FileLink Provider for Box (actually I already had it from prior version but it would no longer work). Then I go to Preferences, Attachments, add Box to the list of providers and it has a yellow triangle with exclamation point. To the right I click on the grey box that says "Connect your Box Account" and nothing happens. I have separately logged into my Box account using Firefox but see no option there either. Is something broker in 91 or am I missing something?

Thank you.

Dear all,

I have the following two issues:

1) Tabs. I close tabs and then close Thunderbird. When I reopen Thunderbird the tabs which I had closed reappear. In fact if I open other tabs and then close Thunderbird and subsequently reopen Thunderbird these newly open tabs do not reappear. It seems to me that the tabs in Thunderbird have been frozen in place so that if I close any tabs the reappear next time I open Thunderbird and if I open a tab it does not reappear when I open Thunderbird next time.

What can I do so that the tabs which I open are not frozen there every time? I want the Calendar to be there all the time but also to be able to determine which tabs should remain closed and which should remain in place next time I open Thunderbird.

2) Attachments. In the past when there were attachments I needed to click on the paper clip, while highlighting the text "Show the attachment pane" and this would expand so that I could see all the attachments. Nowadays when I click it this opens the first attachment and the others remain inaccessible as I can no longer see them or at best only see them fleetingly.

What can I do to restore the ability to click and see all the attachments and then select which I open by double-clicking on it?

Thank you for your replies.

Kind regards, George Nielsen

...however it is the top match when searching for that subject is google.


...and the answer is:

<Thunderbird profile location>/persdict.dat

Hello there,

I am switching to Thunderbird form the standard Mail from W10 and discovering lots of new features, but one thing that cannot seem to find is how to keep one old account I have (may junk mails but some useful too) out of the unified folders where my other accounts are (all of them imap). Right now I check it through the web browser but may be I can have it separated in thunderbird too.

Thanks in advance for your time!

So, I just upgraded to version 78.1 and I just hate the way it looks. The old folders used to be yellow and distinct. The new folders are white with a blue outline of the same color as the rest of the theme. I hate that. It all just looks the same, as if they are trying to hide everything with the same color. This may be the "Modern Trend" but I hate the modern trend. I like things to stay the same. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Is there a way to get the old look back? I looked through the addon themes, but there are only three that are compatible with my version and they are all crazy stuff that I hate worst than the new default theme.

Hello,

Ultimately, I want to change the font for unread email in my in-basket, same as [thread]. Nothing I do in userChrome.css seems to have any effect. I'm running Windows 10. %AppData% = "C:\Users\Ron.000\AppData\Roaming".

Accordingly, I've placed userChrome.css here: C:\Users\Ron.000\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\xdl9kae3.default\chrome


I have toggled toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to true

Current content of the file is below. Thunderbird v68.11.0: /*

* Do not remove the @namespace line -- it's required for correct functioning
*/

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* set default namespace to XUL */

Hi There, Is there a way to sort the folders in the folder plane on Thunderbird 78? I am used to sorting my mail into many different folders for each project and being able to reorder the folders manually is really important. Previously I could use an Addon but this is now disabled in 78! At the moment the folders are listed in alphabetical order with no option to reorganise them.

Any ideas on how to do this would be very much appreciated.

Cheers!

With the latest update my message toolbar got changed and I can't figure out how to fix it. This is the one with Reply, Forward, Archive, Junk, Delete, More. I want the Delete button (the most frequently used) to be on the far right side with a gap beside it so that other buttons aren't pressed by accident. There is no customize option for this toolbar and the customize dialog for the main toolbar doesn't work for this toolbar.

I think this probably got broken in the latest upgrade. Until it is fixed, where can I find where this customization is stored so that I can fix the toolbar to a more logical layout?

Thanks.

I've read a lot of help on this - almost all of them say, "As you have discovered there are three visible TO/Cc/Bcc fields..." and: " type or select email address and press enter to move to next TO field".

None of that works. I have only ONE visible "To" field. It has no controls to change it to a Cc or Bcc one. There is a "CC" or "BCC" option beside the "From" field. Pressing Enter at the end of an address does precisely nothing.

Another copy of TB on another computer has all the features you gaily point to - but mine doesn't. Where do I find it?

Hi, good news about arriving the new Thunderbird 78.2.2, but what a pity a useful behaviour disappear in the last version. So, in the previous version when you press Reply appear a message windows where WAS possible to change the option From "To" to "CC" using a falling tend. This was useful to reply changing the destination address but sending also to the original sender. Our administrative personnel use dozen of time each day this function. Was like this: 0 - Reply 1 - change the From option from the falling tend to "CC" 2 - Insert the new address in "To" That become, to obtain the same effect: 0 -> Reply 1 -> press the button CC 2 -> copy (deleting) the destination address 3 -> paste the address to CC field 4 -> insert the "To"

Almost doubles operations that must be done dozen of time per days.... not realy a good upgrade!!

It is possible to change the layout of the reply windows to the old one?????

Suddenly it says "The messages you have deleted can be purged from disk" every time I move emails. Every stupid time. Probably a very useful feature but just not how I have used things for the last decade or so. At first all I wanted to say was 'thank you but no thank you" Now it is getting beyond a joke. How do I get rid of this without deleting any emails? Yes I know they are nominally deleted but I've use that as an easy way to archive them and then copy them off as a history trail. All my accounts are carefully set to "Don't delete any messages". I like that. I mean it.
