The Address Book is completely useless to me if I can't add Contacts to it. There is currently no way to do this and no place to go for instructions. Can someone please post understandable instructions about how to find and then open my Personal Address Book or the Collected Address Book and then please tell me what the difference is between them? It is VERY non-intuitive.

My apologies if I posted this on the wrong page.

For the last week whenever I open Mozilla ThunderbirdI get a problem with script running, then this: Script: chrome://calendar/content/calendar-month-view.xml:990

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.

Hi, I have 4 email accounts that i have had over 5 years and have a combined 20,000 plus emails.

I do not want to download all the emails when creating a new email account, and i do not want to delete them off the server as i would like to keep a record of them all if i need something in the future.

Please let me know the best way to deal with this. Ideally I would like to download just the emails for this year when creating my new email account in Thunderbird

This may sound stupid but I am unable to reverse my accidental "ignore thread" on a number of my emails. It doesn't allow me to undo it and now all my emails from clients have disappeared and I'm incapable of finding them. All I want is for every email that comes in, to be at the top of the list, is there another way of reversing the process?

Every month, I find that all the earlier e-mails have been deleted.

They are not in Archives, or Trash, either.

So I am losing quite a lot of messages which I want to keep.

What controls exist so that I can tell Thunderbird when I want to delete something, and not have it happen whether I want a deletion or not? And WHY is this basic information so impossible to find on any of the pages?
