In the Library, the Search Bookmarks will find the website you are looking for, but the results list does not show you what subfolder the bookmark is in. This is very frustrating when you want to edit a site in the subfolder where it resides.

This is in Thunderbird. I have a number of news feeds and they occasionally get stopped or paused. It's annoying. Is there a way to disable this paused account feature in Thunderbird? If I want an account paused, it should be my choice not Thunderbird's.

I have two Firefox email systems. One works perfectly. The other suddenly stopped showing the screen of inbox messages. I can scroll over the blank space and the message will display in the lower part of the monitor, but not in the upper screen of subjects, sender, date. How do I return to default setting?

Today When I started my "C:\_PortableApps.com\Thunderbird Portable"\ThunderbirdPortable.exe" My Thunderbird "Portable" opening panel contains no information. The only thing I could see was if I clicked on "Account Settings" Tab. The only way I could Fix it was Closing Thunderbird and renaming "C:\_PortableApps.com\Thunderbird "\ to C:\_PortableApps.com\Thunderbird Portable" to "C:\_PortableApps.com\Thunderbird Portable-Broke" and the Start "C:\_PortableApps.com\Thunderbird Portable-Broke\ThunderbirdPortable.exe"

I even Deleted My "C:\Users\Admin\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profile" Folder and reinstalled "ThunderbirdPortable_102.10.0_English.paf.exe".

I think somewhere on local computer something is "Referencing" The "C:\_PortableApps.com\Thunderbird Portable" Folder it won't let my Opening Page show anything.

If I copy "C:\_PortableApps.com\Thunderbird Portable-Broke" and Rename it "C:\_PortableApps.com\Thunderbird Portable" Folder it won't let my Opening Page show anything, But If I start "C:\_PortableApps.com\Thunderbird Portable\\ThunderbirdPortable.exe" I can see my Opening Page.

I can't remember if I added any files to "My Local Folders" In most of my Setups on other computers with different email addresses I usually do and I can't remember If I did on this computer for sure.

In the past, I had followed this post and created the userChrome.css file so that when I have my emails shown in Table View, if one email within a thread is unread, the whole thread is collapsed, but the subject line remains in bold.

With this latest Thunderbird update to version 115.13.1 I have lost the functionality; now the subject line of the collapsed thread shows as underlined. How can I go back to my preferred bold view?

Thanks

Emails with different subjects are getting threaded together. For example, in the attached snapshot, why are the emails with subject "Bid S011090833" getting threaded under "Hein Revised Hall Bath..."?

Perhaps I don't understand how Thunderbird determines messages have a common thread.

Server Synchronization Challenge

I have Thunderbird as my client on my primary home workstation as well as my traveling laptop. Each instance is configured exactly the same with regards to the four servers I use: Earthlink, GMail, Outlook and GMX. Each of those server/services is also identically configured with regards to these Server Settings: Leave Messages on the Server Until I Delete Them.

Each of the servers -- except GMail -- has the same behavior with regards to how it handles things when I click on the option to Get Messages, i.e., each server seems to be able to identify which of the clients has and which of the clients has not previously been served up with a newly arrived email. It will not send the same email to the same client more than once.

GMail is the exception. There I get what seems to be a first-come-first-served protocol. If I perform Get Messages on the laptop, I will get the email, but will not be able to get the email when I subsequently make the request from the workstation's Thunderbird instance. [Or, if the first request is made from the workstation instance, the laptop instance will never get the email.]

I realize that my usage pattern is rather unique, so it may well be that no one else has ever experienced this behavior, but if anyone has -- with regards to any email server, not just GMail -- and knows a work-around, I would appreciate the instruction.

And, in anticipation of one line of questioning, when I say that all four server/services are configured the same, I am indicating that I do work with GMail as a POP3 server, not IMAP. All my email content ultimately resides on my own hardware resources and is only temporarily resident on hardware provided by the server/service entity.
