The typeface on my incoming emails is HUGE, but when I type a reply, it's extremely small. [was How can I revert to Thunderbird version pre-Sept. 27, 2023?"

The newest version of Thunderbird, installed on Sept. 28, 2023, doesn't work on my computer. How can I revert to the previous version?

Thunderbird is completely unusable in the latest release. Attempting to set up a gmail based account results in

"Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead

Thunderbird detected a potential security threat and did not continue to 192.168.1.250. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details."

That's it. No options, no explanation, no KB articles, nothing. It just doesn't work. But why is Thunderbird trying to open a web connection to my local machine? If it's trying to talk to itself, why can't it? This is clearly an issue with trying to authenticate to Google as it happens after auth, but come on, this is a given requirement these days. If your app doesn't work out of the box (MacOS 13 btw), it may as well not exist for the OS, so this is very confusing.

Trying out older versions was a real comedy of failures as well. Too old and it's just a disaster. Too new and it just self updated to 115 again which doesn't work. So kinda seems like this is not a functional app anymore, at least not on Mac. Baffling. I guess it can only be used with legacy style email systems.

Upgrade to Thunderbird v115 has lost me access to emails/folders/contacts

After the automatic upgrade to 115.2.2, I have lost access to all my folders, emails and calendar entries. But I can still see my addresses by using Tools/Address Book, and my filters by using Tools/Message Filters.

When I started Thunderbird for the first time on 115.2.2 I got to the usual message page which had all the tabs of the "open" emails I had when I last closed Thunderbird. But there was no sign of my folders and I couldn't get to any other messages (See first screenshot). I also had a second occurrence of Thunderbird running (I could have hit the icon a second time) that didn't show the tabs I had on the first screen. (No screen shot)

On a previous post here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1424153 it was suggested that I try Troubleshoot mode. That made no difference and at that time I had no folders showing, and just two tabs. I suspect after that I deleted the tabs.

Now I get a completely blank page in what is usually the message/folder area. Also the button for the address book above the message pane has now gone disappeared (Second screen shot), and I can find no way of accessing my previous (10years+ of messages).

It looks to me as if something is wrong in the profile.

Where do I go from here?

Every morning when I open Thunderbird I receive the notice that "Thunderbird can't update to the latest version." but I am already running the latest version (91.9.0 as of this writing, screen capture attached).

None of the following have worked to resolve this issue yet:

  • Download and install from "Download Thunderbird" link in notice.
  • Uninstall and re-install from fresh download.

Any thoughts what I'm doing wrong, or what else I can try?

Thank you.

I currently am running FF vers. 109.0.1 64 bit on Win 10 pro. I don't like what I've been reading about the latest update, my machines are old and I'm not ready to upgrade so I don't want an even more overloaded/uses up more CPU, etc., version of Firefox. I don't have complex needs in a browser, so some of the "upgrades" haven't been useful for me or have made using FF more difficult.

  I found a list of what I guess are older versions but no information was provided on how to choose a version of say v. 110, to make sure it's the right one for my laptop and/desktop (or the one that will work w/the fewest problems) that it's in English, etc.   
  My impression is that FF is mostly worked on by people who have a variety of needs & interests so increasing sophistication is what they want and that's fine, I'd like to keep using FF w/my current machines, w/as simple a version ,ie., useful for an unsophisticated user.    Is that possible?    If so, I'd like to upgrade to 110 64 bit or perhaps 111 64 bit unless either or both had huge security holes, etc and many users found they weren't very functional.   I do have security software.

I understand that Supernova changed the database format of email storage making rollback more difficult.

Well, either I get to roll back to the old UI, or the pre-Supernova Tbird, or I'm done with Tbird and done donating. This update is absolute shite and not being warned of the changes it would make was really, really shitty.

So how do I roll back, oh geniuses who developed this new shite Tbird?

I think I have a corrupt profile in Thunderbird. I would like to totally wipe the installation from my computer and start over.

When I uninstall using the built-in installer in Windows apps, some of the features are removed, but apparently not all, because when I re-download and reinstall, my old emails pop right back up. That tells me that info. about that installation is still lurking on my computer somewhere. I want a completely fresh installation that requires me to recreate my Thunderbird profile, etc. and requires me to re-link Thunderbird to my G-mail account.

Is there a way to accomplish this erasure?

Thanks a mil.
