Hi: Using Thunderbird 91.6.1 (32-bit) on Windows 10 Home desktop.

This has happened before, but I am unable to recall the solution, other than is was simple for me to implement ...

Usually, there is a Read/Unread selection tab available within the message header panel (next to Date/Correspondents/Subject, etc., but for some unknown to me reason that tab has disappeared. Please help me to get it back on my screen.

TNX.

Hi, Vols! ~

Yeah. So, during the day today, while I was on the phone and tending to a matter that involved navigating on certain Browsers and simultaneously cross-referencing back to my email in Tb, suddenly my Inbox purged off about 19k emails, which don't seem to have been moved to any other of my files. They just were dumped and vanished!

Interestingly, my Inbox is now constantly maintaining at 10,000 even, even as new emails keep coming...

Why would this happen? And, can they be retrieved???

Thanks everybody!

When I forward an email, all links except "mailto" stop working. Double-clicking on a link opens a dialogue window, which shows a "moz-do-not-send" attribute in "advanced edit", if that means anything. I've done everything suggested in troubleshooting, except for the "Standard Diagnostics", which seems drastic.

Saving a draft is supposed to activate hyperlinks, but this isn't occurring. Is the "do not send" attribute causing this? Any hints are appreciated...

My IMAP provider uses the folder name "Deleted Items" for all deleted messages, T'bird of course uses the simple "Deleted". The result is that I end up with both "Deleted Items" & "Deleted" in my folder list, both with deleted messages  :-(

Even worse, the one click T'bird option to empty the Deleted folder doesn't work on Deleted Items. Can the Deleted folder be renamed or is there another way around this annoyance?

I looked at setting up a filter but that only works on new messages, not those in a folder. Any suggestions gratefully received!!

When I do Edit > Find > Search messages, Thunderbird finds messages but shows for "Location" only the subfolder in which the message is located, not the full path to the message. I have several subfolders with the same name but different paths, and even for a unique subfolder name I may not know the path to the subfolder. Or even worse, sometimes I've inadvertently dragged/dropped a folder making it a subfolder of a random folder whose name I don't know.

Is there some way to have Thunderbird either (1) provide the full path to the message or (2) allow a search for folders as well as for messages?

If there isn't, is there a way I can request that this feature be added?

Thanks.

I have 3 POP email accounts from the same service. All 3 are configured the same, and all have stopped downloading new messages at startup. Server settings that are checked: Check for new messages at startup, Check for new messages every 10 minutes, Automatically download new messages.

From the menu bar "Get Messages" > "Get All New Messages" works fine. Also the auto download every 10 minutes works fine. Just the download at startup seems to fail.

Ideas?

Thanks, Bob

I have used Tbird for a long time, but cannot solve my current problem. Long ago, I created a Saved Mail folder, and I have many subfolders and sub-subfolders under that, for clients, software licenses, etc. A couple years ago, we replaced HDDs with SSDs and I had to get all this Saved Mail to show up again on Tbird. After much effort, I succeeded, but this time I am having no luck. I use Carbonite to back up my computer, and I have app data, all the way down to the Tbird profiles. When I got my new computer a week ago, I could look in Profiles in Carbonite, and see my Saved Mail folder, with all the subfolders intact. For some odd reason, I am no longer seeing it in Carbonite, and I have not reinstalled Carbonite on the new computer, so it is not overwriting. However, I did download the Saved Mail folder to my desktop while it was available, and I still have that intact. I've uploaded a screenshot of the contents of my profiles folder, as well as a partial screenshot of the contents of the Saved Mail folder, showing I have the right types of folders and files. I've tried pasting the Saved Mail folder in various places within the Profiles folders, but to no avail. Seems like when I had to do this a couple years ago, this is how I went about it, and it was instantly evident that it worked when I found the right place. I've tried opening and closing Tbird, uninstalling and reinstalling, as well as re-downloading and reinstalling it. Don't know if it's a clue, but the title bar, or whatever you call it at the top of Tbird, is black and gray. I can sometimes get a theme to work, but then at some point it will be black again. Likewise with looking into the import wizard, the upper part had the current theme, but the lower part was black, and now it's completely black. Sure hope someone can help! I'm sunk without all these saved emails! Thanks a million!

I'm using Thunderbird 91.6.1 as a newsgroup reader on a Windows 10 system. I've noticed that some messages will display normally the first time I select them but if I move to another message and then return to the first, the message body is empty. The only way I've found to redisplay such messages is to reboot Thunderbird but I still cannot view them a second time.

This happens with just a few posters who appear to have nothing in common. I don't see any error messages in the console and running in "Troubleshoot Mode" does not eliminate the problem.

If I uninstall it from the D: and install a new copy on the C: drive, will it automatically 'see' the profiles folder and will I have to set up user accounts or does the profile contain these? 64bit Windows 10 Pro and preparing to migrate to Windows 11 in the next year or so!

I have just received this message from Google / Gmail:

"Google will no longer support the use of third-party apps or devices which ask you to sign in to your Google Account using only your username and password. Instead, you’ll need to sign in using Sign in with Google or other more secure technologies, like OAuth 2.0"

I currently use an older version of MS Outlook that apparently won't work after these changes are introduced.

My question is - will Thunderbird work with Gmail after the 30th May deadline? Is it compatible with 'Sign in with Google'?

Thank you for your help.
