In the Thread pane (AKA 'Message List' pane), TB 102 precedes the Subject field with an angled arrow pointed to the left if the message has been Replied-to, and pointed to the right if it has been Forwarded. Those icons are combined into a third icon - with arrows pointing both left and right - when the post in question has been both Replied-to and Forwarded. All this is straightforward icon design: the third icon uses a combination of the first two icons to signify the combination of their respective meanings.

The icon colors are just the opposite. The Replied-to icon is purple and the Forwarded icon is blue, so we have 'Replied-to' icon= left-purple, AND 'Forwarded' icon = right-blue. BUT the combined 'Replied-to AND Forwarded' icon = left-blue AND right-purple. So the relationship of direction to color is not consistent, but inverted. Do these cross-attributes have any significance?

It was not always so. These attributes used to be applied with consistent, rather than inverted, meanings. A Mozillazine article shows an earlier version. The icons are different (the article vintage is TB 2.0, and much has been tweaked since then), but there the arrow colors and directions are mutually reinforcing {Replied: green-left; Forwarded: purple-right; Replied and forwarded: green-left and purple-right} - so the color and direction attributes coordinate to reinforce the functional significance.

How can I find the release notes covering the change in these icons, to see what significance is intended?

Hi Firefox

For the past few updates you have changed your user interface (UI) from time to time and I have to say I am not really a fan of any of the new ones. However, it was once possible to get some add ons like "classic theme restorer 1.4.5" to restore the older more compact and efficient look of firefox. However, I can't find any of those sort of add ons anymore and trying to manually change the look, revert settings and so many more options suggested on the internet is clunky, inefficient and quite frustrating to try and make work.

Is there any way to revert the UI back to a more classic look like in Firefox 89 (or the one from the verison attached in the image) rather than these newer "messy" ones, or will you hopefullt implement a function in the future where one can select an older UI for the browser? I can see from forums, discussions and more online that I am not the only one who wishes there was a way to get an older UI back as the newer ones, in my opinion are no way near as good as the older ones.

Hope you can help with this

Best Regards Klaus

It is does not even seem like it is checking for new mail in those boxes.

I have a total of 11 mailboxes of mixed imap and pop. Only 2 seem to be effected both imap. I have looked in the profiles folder but do not seem to find them there as the folder names do not match the mailbox names..

Earlier today I downloaded 102.1.2 from the website. I installed it and everything was gone. No accounts, no folders with my saved emails. So I tried overlaying the profiles with backups I created at the beginning of the month. When I launched 102.1.2 after that, I was told those profiles were incompatible and I had to set up from scratch all my folders & accounts. So I then re-installed a prior version, 91.12.0. This time I was told a newer version had set up different profiles and again, I had to start from scratch to set up Thunderbird. I'm curious how/why this happened. Can anyone enlighten me?

As it turns out, I was able to restore a system image taken last week and can run Thunderbird 91.12.0 fine. But until I can gain some understanding how to migrate to whatever new structure is in place and keep all my accounts and saved emails, I can't see updating Thunderbird any more which likely means I'll have to find another email client when I finally move to Windows 11. Hate to do that; I've been using Thunderbird for going on 20 years now. Again, can anyone enlighten me as to how I can successfully migrate my settings and saved emails to the new Thunderbird?

Any enlightenment will be appreciated!!

I have been using Thunderbird for some years on my laptop (Windows 10). All updates have been automatic, occuring when Thunderbird is turned on. Recently a message popped up requiring me to download an upgrade from the Mozilla website. I did so, and installed version 102.1.0. A couple of days later I received the same message when I turned Thunderbird on, and went through the same routine, installing version 102.1.1. Yesterday I received the same message, and then downloaded and installed version 102.1.2. Today I received the same message, but when I downloaded the update file it was version 102.1.2, which is already installed. In Thunderbird, when I check Help on the menu, the installed update is 102.1.2. It looks to me that something is wrong. After the initial upgrade, should further updates to it be automatic? I should not be receiving popup messages almost every day from Mozilla, and I should not constantly be going to the Mozilla webite to download and install further upgrade/update files. Thanks, Roger

I'm having problems where messages occasionally get scrambled.

The account uses an SMTP server on gmail.com .

Only the Inbox folder and the All Mail folder get messages scrambled; this doesn't happen to other folders.

It seems to happen only if Thunderbird is doing a compression of multiple folders, and another message arrives during the compression.

I often get at least 300 messages a day, so this happens a few times a month. Most of them use HTML or something else other than plain text.

Messages in the Important folder are not affected, so some of the messages can be recovered from that folder.

Enough of the message headers to identify the messages in the list of Inbox nessages is not affected; the scrambling only appears if you try to display the body of the messages.

Which messages are affected does not relate well to the order of messages in the Inbox list. I suspect it relates to the order of compression instead.

Shutting down Thunderbird and restarting it stops any more incoming messages from being affected, at least as long as they do not arrive during a compression.

If Thunderbird controls which messages are downloaded, shutting down any downloads during compressions should be a fix.

If the server controls which messages are downloaded, a temporary queue for messages downloaded during compressions may be needed.

Unclear of the problem is related to my method of putting a small weight on the Shift key so I can select a series of messages using only one hand (my other hand won't press only the Shift key very well).

The problem appeared in a few versions of Thunderbird before I started using the weight.

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,
