Hi all -

Just upgraded to TB 78 on Windows 10 x64, Build 2004. Noticed two major things:

Issue 1 -

All of the mail folder icons are no longer yellow. Just a stark white with a black edge. I attached an Image of the issue for review.

Issue 2 -

My Message Composition Pane is dark with white letters and most incoming text mail is the same.

I do have some dark colors set up under PC Settings -> Personalization but everything was working perfectly prior to this new release.

I attached Images of the issue for review. Note the "dark haze" over the HTML email.

No add-ons are enabled!

Any help appreciated! Kind of urgent to me.

TIA :)

I am trying to create an HTML signature block. I need to add an image to my signature. In the Help for adding signatures, it says to use the menu item 'Insert > Image'. I cannot find any such menu item.

The version of my Thunderbird is 91.9.1

Please indicate where I can find this function.

Thank you

In all previous versions I was able to use my color setup but still keep my colors working. This current email has changed the color on a lot of my emails and made some nearly impossible to read. Some text will be white and I have to highlight it to read and the message body of reading emails will be black regardless of what I change it to. The only way I have been able to fix this was by overriding the colors with a high contrast theme but it's not pleasant on the eyes.

Changing the text and background colors do nothing and changing the themes do nothing as well. I'm currently using a userChrome.css to change the color on some things but it isn't creating any conflicts. The problems still persist even after removing the file all together.

The only thing I can think of creating the problem could be that I'm using a dark theme for windows which is making the text to default to white. The black text body could be due to me using a registry edit for a custom color on my task as well, but neither of these were a problem until this beta.

I have been trying to figure out a way to change the font sizes in Thunderbird 78.4.3. None of the "help" works. Font changing extensions are out of date. Help threads point to menu items that aren't there. Can't even find the "config.editor". My eyes just can't handle the small fonts anymore.What can I do?

We have multiple email accounts on an email hosting service. Now using Thunderbird 91.0.3, it doesn't seem to like multiple outgoing servers. TB wants to keep using the previous email name(s) outgoing, i.e. "me@mydomain.com" for the next entry. So even though I add an smtp server "you@mydomain.com" TB will automatically make it "me@mydomain. Then in the recipients email, it will show the correct sender email addy, but under correspondents it has the wrong info.

Hi all,

my aim is to change the appearance of my Thunderbird. Before version 68 that was possible with themes, but those themes are not working anymore.

So, as a simple approach, consider, I want to have a light green color as the background color and black as a foreground color for the 3 main panes. Thus I changed the background color in Preferences/Display/Formatting/Colors/Background to #90ee90 (hereafter #XXXXXX). However, this only changes the background color of the mail-viewing pane. The other two are left as they were before.

Q1: How are the pane foreground and background colors for all panes supposed to be changed?

--- Then I read about the Webextensions on https://developer.thunderbird.net/add-ons/examples/web-extension-themes#additional-color-properties

I tried the simple and the full example, and set tab_background_text to #XXXXXX, and theme_frame to one of my HD images. tab_background_text was the only one with a background in its name. Surprisingly, this changed the foreground color of the menus to #XXXXXX. The panes were left as they were before.

Q2: Is there a full list of the attribute names and their meanings? Q3: What are the names of the pane foreground and background colors? Q4: As someone not familiar with json, can you tell me what #XXX (other than #000 and #FFF) means. It looks like nibble color codes, but its not really explained somewhere.

Btw If you have an xpi, and you change the theme_frame image, and by chance, the image name in the manifest is incorrect, then Thunderbird still reuses the old image, even after a restart, and even if the complete add-on was removed before. Q5: Is this the way it is supposed to be?

Thanks Thomas

Доброго времени суток. Пару лет не пользовалась почтовым клиентом. Тут установила и не понимаю, куда делась привычная настройка программы? Какая-то урезанная стала.. И теперь при редактировании контакта, в списке писем в столбце "Адресат" не меняется имя. Раньше автоматом менялось во всех письмах. А сейчас до изменения отображается одно, после изменения по другому. Очень не удобно. И как найти настройки, как на скриншоте ниже?

Hello, How can I tell thunderbird to "Move new junk messages" (in "junk settings" → Destination and Retention) *only* for messages in INBOX, and not when opening other folders ? Some of my folders are populated by specific filters, are not junk, and I do not want to have any messages in folders other than INBOX to be moved even if identified as junk. Cheers, Fred

Thunderbird 78.4.0 updated but the view has changed making it difficult for some Seniors particularly those with visibility issue. The new view has little contrast.

Is there a way to revert the view back to the classic view setup with things like yellow file folder which are in contrast to white background and easy to see for those with visibility issues?

Same old story.

The developers are killing TB. They don't care about users or add-on developers. They said recently that this sort of problem was unavoidable as they were making a major update (around version 60 something) but it happens every single time.

Without add-ons, TB is just very average. It's the add-ons that make it great but they are too thick to understand that.

In 78.2.2, even with the config setting toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets, a userChrome.css can still change the UI font, and its point-size, but no longer has any effect on the spacing of rows.

I now have about half as many messages listed on screen than before, because most of the pane is wasted space.

Why has this option been disabled?

Is there another way of compacting the view of message rows?

Hi, I have a few email accounts set up in Thunderbird (rel 91.7.0 32bit, Win10 21H1). On the work email (the first account) I receive complete notifications when receveing new email (sound and popup with sender/subject). On the personal one, I can only hear the sound and see the new mail red icon in the traybar but I can't see any preview. As far as I can tell, the notifications setting are not account-specific, and I would expect all accounts to behave the same in that respect. Does anybody have idea/suggestions to activate the popup alert also for the other account? Many thanks in advance Luca
