I am constantly unchecking the paragraph format in the Preferences/Composition section. Thunderbird will not remember the preference choice. This is very annoying. Every time I reboot TB, I am back to the default paragraph setting. I want single spacing by default. How do I get TB to remember? I've seen previous solutions in these discussions for Windows users, but I haven't seen a simple solution for Mac users. I am on a 2019 MacBook Pro, using Big Sur 11.6. Thanks for your HELP.

I'm using the FileLink feature with DropBox as the repository. First time using this example of the excellent product that TB is.

I'm having trouble getting it to handle all of the attached files of an email message. I have 5 files in the attachement pane: ATTACHMENT PANE first image below I click on al 5 of the attachements, but It only uploads 2 of them to DropBox. ATTACHMENT PANE AFTER FILELINK second image below

What am I doing wrong? Is there a restriction on the total size of attachment using FileLink?

TIA. SweetTasha.

I often receive spoof messages saying that my account has been hacked and which demand bitcoin payments. The subject line is "Message need your participation in processing :You have an outstanding payment." These are "hacked" to appear to come from my own email address so they do not get trapped by ordinary spam engines. I set up a filter for the subject line using all of this subject line to be deleted but that didn't work. I tried it for the subject line simply beginning with "Message" and that didn't work either. Has the rest of the header been hacked in a way that means Thunderbird isn't picking up the expected information and thus not actually working on the alledged subject line. I notice that the bit of the subject line from the ":" onwards isn't actually showing in the header that appears in the email when it is in the "inbox". Curious

Thanks for any help!

Following the instructions on this page:

 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/message-list-columns

....I can neither resize, move, nor add columns.

Per those instructions.... ¶ When I try resizing a column, the entire window moves. ¶ When I try moving a column, the entire window moves. ¶ When I try adding a column, nothing happens.

I'm using Thunderbird 91.2.0 on Windows 10. I've tried rebooting Windows and re-installing Thunderbird, but neither fixes the problem.

All of these things were working within the last few weeks. The failure might be correlated with the latest Thunderbird installation.

I can resize columns in OpenOffice Calc, so this doesn't appear to be a problem with the mouse driver.

I have two problems with the newest Thuderbird.

The first is that when I click on an email within Thuderbird program (on my PC) and chose `Save As' and choose "Text" the saved text email no longer includes the attachments, that is, the name, size, etc. For me this is losing functionality. Can I turn this back on?

The second is when I save an email this way, whether as a text file or .eml, the file is saved with date stamp and sender info in the filname. Can I turn this off?
