Using Thunderbird 102.4.1 - have not upgraded for a few days and program was working fine. Switched on today and inbox was rebuilt - and then all the messages are there but the From / To / CC fields are all blank on the message pane. When I reply to a message all the information is available. The From/To/CC is also visible on the summary pane. Same issue on all messages in every folder. Tried to restart in troubleshooting mode with addons disabled but made no difference. I have Header Tools Lite addon - disabled that but does not fix the issue. On Windows 11 and everything was working fine until this morning.

I upgraded to version 115.2.2 (64 bits), on a Windows 10 OS.

I used to be able to reduce the pane of the message list, so that I could expand the contents of a selected message. But now it has a lower limit, where I cannot push the line up further.

Attached is an image showing the line of concern. I could drag it down, but no further up. How could I change this behavior?

Thanks!

I just upgraded to version 102.1.2 and almost all is working fine. However, when I go to my Newsgroups I now need to enter Username and Password.

I have checked the "Use Password Manger to remember this password." It works for that time but then a few minutes later I need to do it all over again!!!

Then when I try to go to Tools>Options>Privacy & Security>Passwords the "Options" link does NOT exist!!!

In all the years of using Thunderbird this has never happened before on a Upgrade to a new version.

Is there a fix for this in another update or is there something I am missing??

Thanks,

Les

Created a new Profile I copied over the folders:

 IMAPmail

and the following files

 key3.db
 logins.json
 cert8.db

and all of the pref.js files (1 through to 141)

The profile folder does show new profile active ( as per this pic https://flic.kr/p/2pjRyRz)

I created the 2 IMAP account login details, I now have access to the inbox for 2 IMAP account, but I do not have any the filed mail (local folders) how do I get these back. This is an important item for me as many years of filed emails.

I've used gmail (with multiple email accounts) on Firefox for many, many years. I switch back and forth between my email accounts daily.

In the past few weeks, though, when I try to switch from my primary account to the others, it just defaults back to the primary. I've purged the cache, I've signed out and signed in. This does not happen on Chrome, just Firefox, which is why I've brought it here.

If I change the URL of the mailbox

https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox

to

https://mail.google.com/mail/u/1/#inbox

It will take me to another mailbox. I can then change that number to get to the others. But it shouldn't be that way. So ... what is going on? How do I fix it?

I've been running TB38/linux for a long time and have many extensions and .css entries. In order to comply with gmail's upcoming OAuth2 requirement, I just installed TB91 and copied over the contents of my TB38 profile into the newly-created profile.

Imagine my disgust to find that none of my .css entries (mostly involving fonts not dealt with in the preferences) and most of my extensions and colors are inoperative. I've been tweaking TB since it was Netscape .9 and appearance and LEGIBILITY (Arial bold) is really important for something that I use for many hours per day. Quite frankly, I hate this new version. If I have to I will use it in order to avoid losing my SORTED email going back to 1995, but I'll do it resentfully.

It has been my experience that with each update I lose something of value to me -- hence my stop at V38. What is the oldest version of Thunderbird/linux that will satisfy gmail's OAuth2 requirement?

I'm sure I'm not the only one wondering...

I have just installed Thunderbird 91.11.0 (64-Bit) on Kubuntu 22.04 LTS.

I would like to have all of my message folders have the following columns:

Attachments, Subject, Received, Size

I can make the change easily enough, but they keep reverting to the default columns. This happens whenever I change folders and return. Sometimes I can actually *see* them change. For example, if I set my desired columns for my Inbox, and then change to a different folder and back to Inbox, I'll see my desired columns - and then they'll change back to the defaults a few seconds later.

I would actually like to apply these same settings to all of my folders. To do that, I have used "Apply columns to..." and selected "Folder and its children" and selected the account at the top of the folder list. I have also tried just applying the view to Inbox.

None of this works. It insists on using the default column list, which I do not want. Ever.

I'll note that this is a new install of both Kubuntu and Thunderbird. This machine suffered major file corruption a couple of days ago from a power loss during an upgrade. To recover, I clean installed everything from scratch into a newly formatted disk.

This machine was previously running Ubuntu 20.04 LTS with an unknown version of Thunderbird (since the machine crashed, I lost the version information). That install did not have this problem.

I would appreciate any suggestions to make a permanent change to the column layout.

Thanks, -Wade

Hi,

I did an upgrade yesterday from 91 to 102. This morning, I get a few issues. Some email messages are blank. Some have a lot of header and content code displaying that is not related to the email I am opening but from a different email message. Some emails have no HTML content but others are fine.

On my cellular device, I am using the Bluemail app and all messages are there and are fine so it appears to be related to Thunderbird 102 upgrade.

I have used Thunderbird for years and this is an issue I have never seen? I am running an IMAP account.

Thanks,

Mike

Hello! I have the grey/italic problem that has been reported often here as well. I tried these solutions, but they didn't help: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1293067 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1246828

I contacted the support of my email provider and he said that the problem is TB and not the IMAP server and I think he is right because logging in on the web the folder structure is fine and all messages are there.

so the final solutions was to reinstall TB. I did this first without deleting my user profile from the folder "roaming", but the problem persisted just the same way, and then I deleted the entire user profiles folder and the issue still exists. this means to me that this wasn't yet a clean new installation so that TB creates the folder structure completely new. To me It seems to me that TB is storing some information still on another location. Might this be?

So, how do I force TB to completely load from scratch the folder structure and it's content?

Best,

Wolfram

My thunderbird just upgraded to 115.2.2 (32-bit) - my windows is 64-bit - but I can't read the preview window or emails. Everything is in a gigantic font so I see only 2 lines at a time in both the main email edit screen and the preview screen. I tried changing it to Calibri 12 in Settings (it was Calibri 17) but that makes no difference. I also don't like that I have to go through File menu now to get messages for just one account. Is there a way to downgrade back to my old version? I guess that would be 115.2.1. Thank you!

About three days ago, the dropdown lists for various websites I use stopped populating unless I use the backspace. So, for instance, if I want to find "John", nothing happens if I just start to type it in. But if I type in "Jo" and then backspace, John pops up. (Perhaps important: Even though I have now deleted the "o", only John pops up, not names beginning with J but followed by a different letter.) Curiously, it seems like the first time each day that I go onto any given website, the dropdown does populate properly, but just that once. I checked Edge and Chrome, and the dropdowns work fine there, so it's definitely a Firefox problem. Any ideas about what is going on and how I can fix it? Thanks.

How do I correct my serious error (when tired) in allowing a Thunderbird 'Upgrade' 115.2.2 (32 Bit) Supernova to install on my Laptop (Windows 10 Home, 64 Bit). I failed to read the Release Notes by trusting Mozilla wouldn't issue such a drastic change without Warnings as it was not just an 'Upgrade'! It has screwed up my Set up, Folders etc., completely changed layout, can't find 'Write Message' tab etc. etc . etc.

The previous Thunderbird Version had many problems further introduced by 'Upgrades' but was at least still had continuity with earlier Versions with a functional MMI (man machine interface) instead of all the changes introduced with the 115.2.2, which in my opinion should be withdrawn completely. N.B My experience in Systems Control, as an Air Traffic Control Engineer, we would throw this out as not fit for purpose.

Help Please and explain how can I revert back to an Earlier Version?
