Thunderbird Supernova and my Windows 11 problems...

My Thunderbird(115.8.0) and Windows 11 just don't get along. My Thunderbird has a Menu button in the top right that's just there for it does nothing when I click or right click so I guess no add-ons, calendar, etc. If I hover over it I see "Display the Thunderbird Menu" and that's it. When I open the program it doesn't go to my inbox, it goes to a page that I have to click on "Read Messages" to get to my inbox and in prior versions and I had Windows 10 this never happened. When I go to buttons on the left and click on "Help" and then "About Thunderbird" to check on updates I always get "Unable to check for updates due to internal error" and oh yeah now in Thunderbird I can't copy and paste, I can highlight but when I right click....nothing.

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling and even tried removing hidden folders, but as of now nothing has worked. I don't know what to think and I'm truly at a loss and it sure looks like I have to find another email program because right now Thunderbird just ain't working. I've been using this program I believe for over 20 years with really zero problems but my luck has apparently run out. Sorry for the mini series. lol
