In 78.2.2, even with the config setting toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets, a userChrome.css can still change the UI font, and its point-size, but no longer has any effect on the spacing of rows.

I now have about half as many messages listed on screen than before, because most of the pane is wasted space.

Why has this option been disabled?

Is there another way of compacting the view of message rows?

I have 3 email accounts and one of them shows 'from Geoff 2 Smith on MC1' when I receive a msg from him, in both the In Box and in the message. If I reply to him it is sent to the correct address (eg Geoff@Smith.net.xx)

I suspect that I have been responsible for entering something like 'Geoff 2 Smith on MC1' in some field in settings ... but where ? It all works as far as sending a msg to the correct person, but is terribly untidy and frustrating.

Thunderbird 68.12.0 automatically downloads all email waiting in queue (POP). All server setting check-boxes for downloading are "un-ticked". Lots of spam gets in, anyway, unexpectedly.

It seems to happen even with T-Bird has been running (not starting up).

The idea that automatically downloading waiting emails is "normal" or unexpected seems to be, to me, presumptuous -- particularly when a push of F5 is all it takes to initiate downloading. Reading/processing email has a lot to do with workload and workday timing. Cleaning up spam is time-consuming and I have FireTrust Mailwasher to facilitate that, but if T-Bird downloads automatically, I never get to "wash" that email.

A mess.

Dear Community,

after installing the new version of Thunderbird, some optics changed. And entering recipients in terms of To:,CC:, BCC: changed. You cannot have the entries any more in separate lines, but they all have to be entered in the same field, much like some MS Software.

I think, it has been nicer the way it was before. Is there some configuration option to return to that behavior?

Many thanks and regards

With the new composer addressing in v78 (which I like in principle) there doesn't seem to be a way to set which fields I want by default. I always get 'Reply-To', which I don't need, but generally always have to click 'cc' to add that field as i use it a lot.

I'd like to have 'To' and 'Cc' visible each time I start to compose, but not 'Reply-To'.

Can this feature be added, or is it there a config setting somewhere that I have missed?

Thanks!

I'm not sure if this was changed in a recent version or something, but I noticed that one of my tags which used to be colorless (that is, things tagged didn't necessarily take on a different color) are now black. Was the ability to have "uncolored" tags removed in a recent update? I have a certain tag (or rather group of tags) that gets applied, based on the source of the spam score, to almost every message I receive, and while I realize that this may not seem particularly useful (tags are most often used to differentiate messages, but everything gets "scored by plugin"), it works for me. Or at least, it did until whatever happened to cause the tags to all go black. Is there a way to clear the color on my tags? I tried setting it to white, but, well, take a look at my screenshot to see how that went. ("contrast? What's that?"~Thunderbird UI designer implementing tag colors)

Hi All

I redid my system yesterday and even with backing up my profile it seems that the newest thunderbird had change how folders look.

Is there any way to color the entire folder? I know I can change colors under the folders properties but that only effects the folder outline I would much prefer a solid color like a tan folder.

Is there any way to get a solid folder rather then just the outlines? Most add ons for folder color aren't compatible with the recent version of TB.

Also not big on the other icons and such any way to change those as well to either a different theme or just custom images?

After the update to 78.2.2 a couple of days ago, Thunderbird always opens a new mail with dark background and white text color. Before Thunderbird, even in dark mode which I always enabled, did open a new message with white background and black text color.

This 'new' feature of Thunderbird messes the whole purpose of using Thunderbird up. I mean why would I want to reply to an email when I can type and read my text but I am unable to quickly review the message I am replying to because it has black text color on dark background. Who implemented this? Who wanted this? Why is that?

For now I enabled Light Mode, which is a pain in the ass to work with during night. Dark pains with bright messages really is a relief, but it is also necessary to write on white background.

This is how it looks like now: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-09-20-01-54-00-efbe54.png

While there are separate tabs for Email, Calendar and Tasks, the address book must appear separately as a separate box. This is odd because almost all actions handled in Thunderbird are interactions with other people. In addition, the search within the addresses is extremely rudimentary. For example, I like to write additional characteristics in the note field, such as "brother of...", or "met him in ...". But I cannot search for that. The note field is not included for the search.

Of course you can solve all this with the "Cardbook" extension. But what bothers me is that I don't have direct access to my address information, it is only synchronised.

In former times there was an extension "AdressbookTab", but this was not updated for the newer versions. Therefore I wonder generally why the default "Contacts" area is neglegted in Thunderbird.

Perhaps I should also mention that my addresses are synchronised with SOGO, Exchange or Google so that I have them on all devices. Thunderbird is unfortunately the weakest link here in the basic version.

Each employee have configured 3 email accounts: Main company mail, sales mail, and specific mail with their surname and company domain. So the 2 main email accounts are the same for all of employees (and for all Windows profiles), only third is diffrent. I have many emails on main account, and small SSD drive. I think you all know, where it is going :) I want this two main email account to be shared for all the Windows profiles, because when emails comes, they are repated on disk 5 times (for all Windows profiles). I already tried to copy this two mail email accounts to a folder that can be accessed from all the Windows profiles, and set proper path in Thunderbird settings, but every time when I logged out form one profile, and logged in to another, Thunderbird started to recieve ALL of emails. How can I configure this two main emails to by shared accross the Windows profiles?
