In the main Inbox view of Thunderbird, everything above the tabs is missing. It is transparent, but the area is still part of the Thunderbird window and clicking it keeps the focus in that window. I am running 24.3.0. I have encountered two possible fixes for this (one was related to themes, but I'm using the original theme, the other was to hit toggle fullscreen - in my case, F11 appears to be disabled or broken), but haven't been able to solve the problem. I am running Windows 7 Pro SP1, x64

What is the easiest method to import the outlook 2003 contacts (adresbook) to Thunderbird which is installed on Ubuntu. (Windows XP + Ubuntu 14.04 installed on same computer)

I'm a bit surprised that even today, this somehow seems to remain kind of a problem. Articles are pointing to complicated procedures, implicating various other programs which should helping in resolving what should be a simple import of the oulook.pst files.

Outlook can export to various type of files. Which format could Thunderbird itself use to import "directly" with some chance of succes ?

I trust that Mozilla is aware of it that it still is a point of concern to users. Focussing on migration is the first priority after installation.

I found a very good Dutch article about installation http://support.mozilla.org/nl/kb/thunderbird-installeren-linux.

But about importing from Oulook (2003 or other) , I wasn't able to find some straigthforward guidance for a "easy" and simple import operation, probably because there still isn't one yet.

Thank you.

Occasionally Thunderbird email service installed on my desktop is very slow opening an email and loading emails. I have multiple email addresses and it does not happen with all of them. It happens with the two (out of 10) addresses that receive the most emails. What can I do. I thought it might be my anti-virus program but since it only happens on two of the 10 emails that receive messages on my Thunderbird I do not believe that it can be he anti-virus or that would effect all the emails I receive and not just some.

I started getting this alert after a restart last Saturday (2-22-2014) and Thunderbird freezes before it is fully operational: (incorrect application behavior?)

Could not initialize the application's security component. The most likely cause is problems with files in your application's profile directory. Please check that this directory has no read/write restrictions and your hard disk is not full or close to full. It is recommended that you exit the application and fix the problem. If you continue to use this session, you might see incorrect application behaviour when accessing security features.

I have over 500 GB free on the hard disk and have checked the directory TTBOMA. As recently as this morning I again uninstalled TB using the TB uninstall utility, rebooted and reinstalled from the Mozilla website. Nada,

Toshiba Satellite L875D Windows 8

I don't use Chrome and don't know why this is interfering with opening the program. I have been clicking on 'stop script' twice to enable the program to run properly. How do I correct this?

Many thanks.

For the last few days, Thunderbird stops moving messages to the trash or junk. Also when I send a message, it can't move the message to the Sent box.

If I quit and reopen Thunderbird, it will work again for a while.

I tried "Repair Folder" on the Inbox, Trash, and Junk folders.
