Just updated to v115.08 and can not resize the columns. When I place the cursor on the right edge of column header, I drag it all the way across the monitor screen and the column header expands partially very slow, then when I release it, it goes back to a mini width and I can't read them message info; all columns except the size and received. Unacceptable as I manage a business and can't see my email info!

Likewise, I can't seem to go back to the older version I had! Granted I turned updates off because the nag screen pops up constantly and is SO annoying. Every minor up date now is considered a damn full version ID and it's just a flat PIA.

As well, this update deleted ALL MY ADD_ONS... seriously!!! I've been using both TB and Ff since they began. What to do now. I don't know what's happened to Mozilla programming, but the nag screens for every little change and now this?!?

HELP!!! Thanks in advance.

Hello, I have been using Thunderbird with the Manually Sort Folders app for years. The ability to place folders and subfolders where I need them is essential for what I do. With the latest Thunderbird "upgrade", it was downgraded as the Manually Sort Folders app is no longer useable. Until Mozilla fixes it to where either the app can be used or Thunderbird is improved so that it will let me sort folders itself, I cannot upgrade. Please either render the Manually Sort Folders app useable again or make Thunderbird so that folder can be sorted. Thank you.

Hello, I had my system reinstalled last week including Windows etc due to serious failure. Al software incl. Thunderbird had to be reinstalled, luckily I have retrieved all addresses, emails etc. however I am struggling to bring back previous view. The current one is a bit messy as presented on picture 1 - firstly I cannot hide the email's content and secondly I do not have the toolbar with "Korepondenci Temat Data" etc - these buttons are not visible (highlighted in yellow on picture 2).

What I would like to reinstate is the layout as on picture 2 - the one currently used by my colleague. I have no idea how to do it. Can you pls help me out with this? I have compared my settings with him and we both have the same version of Thunderbids, ticked off same options etc.

thanks Mariusz Stupiński from Poland

115 continues to try my patience, but inflicting threading upon me goes beyond annoyance and into the reign of seriously disrupting my ability to use Thunderbird.

I've read some stuff here that I don't really understand. Is there any way to TOTALLY turn off threading for any and all incoming or stored emails? I found View ==> Sort By ==> Threads seems to have an option for "All" but that can't be unchecked.

If anyone can provide any help, I'll be quite grateful!

I have finally achieved a good font size for email written in plain text. But a good third of my emails are from newsletter subscriptions that are written in html format. In settings/composition, I have changed the setting to HUGE after trying all the other options in the drop-down list.

Nothing works. Couldn't we go back to the old standby - Cntl +? It's simple/stupid, and you don't have to go hunting throughout all the menus (that aren't coordinated in any way)?

hello helpers concers: Thunderbird 115 and in it the Gmail-folder 'Send'.

I am used to Thunderbird, it is my central E-mail program. I have included in it 3 accounts including Gmail. That in itself works well. ONLY under 'SEND' I get no mention of mail sent using Gmail. How can I fix this?

thanks

I find myself often in need of changing a color of a section of text in an outgoing email. I would love the ability to create some simple macros and keyboard shortcuts to set one of three or four colors. Is there a facility within Thunderbird to do that? If not, is there an add-on that can do that?

Hello. As I see from other discussions topics, threaded folders are NOT popular. PLEASE can you offer an option, across the whole of Thunderbird, for NOT having emails threaded. Thuis INCLUDES, when using the Search features, where the reults appear as threaded, which is counter intuitive when searching for one particular message.

I have seen lots of questions with the opposite tack. If there is already an answer here, I apologize for not finding it and asking again.

I support a small business. The main email address is office@<mydomain>.com. Three of us monitor that account, on three separate computers. We have always struggled with not knowing if one of the others already responded to an email or not. This has led to us either spamming the person submitting the inquiry, or all of us "ignoring" it by assuming someone else responded.

Is there a way for Thunderbird to monitor and indicate if the email was replied to on any of the systems, not just the one we're sitting in front of? We own the domain and host our email server through inmotion hosting, which gives us lots of control if something needs to be configured server-side.
