Maybe I hit a wrong key and sent an instruction I never intended to, but now, in my Sent folder, there is a heavy black arrow to the left of every entry. I can't imagine what purpose it serves, that's why I wondered about hitting the wrong key. Is there some simple way to turn this off?

My system wiped Thunderbird 91.8.0 completely. So I downloaded v91.8.1 and started reconstructing my accounts - no major problem.

But when I try to import my backup ldif files into the new version it comes up with a screen as attached. I select address book in that but there is nothing to start the import as you can see in the pic attached.

Or is there another way I can import?

Can anyone help me, an elderly user??

Many thanks.

Printing an email page used to include the URL address at the upper right of the page & the subject at the upper left corner. But not anymore.

I tried another profile & it printed the URL as usual. Then I went to Print > Options > Print headers and footers and unchecked the box and of course no headers or footers printed.

Then I re-checked the box & the footers printed but not the URL header. And the subject name now printed at the top center of the page.

This uncheck / recheck seems to have affected all the email in the profile. It made a permanent change to all.

There used to be page setup options to choose which headers & footers you wanted printed but I cannot find that now. Where is that located?

Hello-- I have created an alternative account in Thunderbird, and with it custom signature text using the html option in Account Settings. When I send emails using this alternative identity, however, the signature that displays is the one associated with the primary, default account. How do I get Thunderbird to use the correct signature?

I also have a problem when emails are sent to gmail: the signature displays with an extra blank line between each line of text. The signature displays as desired in other email clients. Thanks for any clues Jim

Hi,

I have a primary account with Gmail, and several alias domains (personal vs business etc). When sending email from Thunderbird, the Headers include "Return-Path", which reveals the Gmail primary domain on the account. No such Header appears when I send similar emails through the browser / Gmail web portal.

I would like to omit the Return-Path Header when using Thunderbird to send emails.

Thanks for your help.

I have been marking emails from a specific account (local councilor in a city I lived in until three years ago), and still the emails get through. I have installed 78.11.0 (64-bit). I would have thought by now that three years of "mark as junk" would have got the message through to the junk filters; that Thunderbird would, by now, have learned something. Is there a hard and heavy hammer that can be used to state finally that any and all email from "Krzstzyn Wzng-Tzm <rzdzng@tcndp.cz>" is Junk? Thanks Chris Greaves

Hello, I am trying to configure a new POP email address for the first time in many years, and I just need a bit of assistance.

All of my previously configured email accounts share the same inbox etc under LOCAL FOLDERS and I want the new one to do the same.

I know how to configure the account to use LOCAL FOLDERS for sent items, drafts, etc via the COPIES & FOLDERS tab under Account Settings.

But what else do I need to do in order to tell Thunderbird that I want to use LOCAL FOLDERS for everything and not have the email account show up separately in the folders panel?

I can't remember what I had to do years ago when I set up my other accounts, and of course things may have changed.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

I was in two minds whether to post this i not as quite minor really, that said Thunderbird will be my default email client on several machines so may as well get Q's out of the way.

Changed the font size for emails and folder text which is spot on, the only other thing would be to have the title bars or column headers (subject, correspondent, date and so on) in bold as a quick glance makes them seem part of the emails.

This option is probably available similar to changing the font inside config file but I may not be searching for the right thing, 'headers' returns results for the actual message format.

On another note, in case this pops up later on, while dragging icons from the toolbar selection tray the 'delete' button didn't quite make it, the button is no longer in the tray (as an option) or on the menu ?

Many thanks all

I have been searching for a solution for over five hours and three different Thunderbird updates. My version of Thunderbird is 91.9.0 (32-bit). I have found several suggestion on things to do, but they are all for prior versions and the UI has changed so they all refer to pathways to find the default incoming message text size that does not match this version. I have tried every font size input I can find, setting all to 20 (larger than I need but immediately obvious when it works) and one of them did change all of the incoming message text sizes, but when I next reopened Thunderbird (for an update), it no longer persisted.

Thanks in advance, Richard Aronson

I'm using a Mac Airbook with M1 chip, Monteray.

It is exceedingly frustrating to read the entire inboxes (8 email accounts) in tiny, tiny letters. Tried to upload screen shot but it didn't seem to work (just kept spinning).

I tried using the solution given by Toad-Hall here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1267898 But it didn't work.

I made the documents he said to make and put them in all 6 of my email profiles (i guess I have 6 profiles due to all the different email addresses in there?). But everything is still tiny, tiny letters. Very hard on the eyes.

When I go to view -> zoom, nothing gets bigger. The text within an individual email will enlarge, just not the text of the inboxes.

Please can you tell me a simple solution (I am not that techy and don't want to spend another 2 hours on fixing this) for how to get my thunderbird app to appear readable? Otherwise I think I will ruin my eyes! Thanks!

By the way even my excel and word items at 100% on the 13" screen are small. But I am able to enlarge that each time I open it.
