Recently I started having a problem where Thunderbird simply stops working. It won't get mail. I click on "Get Messages" but nothing happens. The status bar remains blank. No messages saying connecting to server, or checking inbox for mail. Nothing. I have to reboot the computer to get it to work again. I'm running 3 flavors of Linux (Ubuntu, Linux Mint and Linux Lite). I've had the problem in all 3 OS's. I also run Windows10 (as I am at the moment). I have not had that specific problem in Windows yet, but I just went to send a short email and the "Sending message" progress bar was fully green but the dialog box just kept sitting there doing nothing. I had to close the dialog box and hit "Send" again before it finally succeeded. Thanks in advance for any info.

Using Thunderbird 60.4.0 x64 on Linux Mint 18.3, when I open an email (in a new Thunderbird tab) and switch back to the message list (by closing the eMail or switching tabs, doesn't matter), the browser freezes for a time. The time depends on the number of listed eMails (i.e., a folder with 1000 eMails hangs longer than one with 10 eMails, and in threaded view, the hang is shorter if threads are collapsed). The problem also occurs in safe mode, with all add-ons disabled. I also created a new, clean profile, synced only one eMail account to it, and the problem still occurs.

I have four eMail accounts set up, the largest of which has 15k eMails. My Laptop has a Core i7 6600U with 16 GB RAM and an SSD. The same problem occurs on a different laptop of mine, with similar specs.

Please let me know what additional information you need.

I have used Thunderbird for a few years and never had a problem until now. I am on Linux Mint and I updated to Thunderbird 60.2.1 I just launched it and the calendar (lightning) is no longer compatible with this version, this is stupid, the calendar feature is an important and integral part of any email system! I have six months of appointments, tasks and events just wiped out why update when something important like the calendar is not going to work. Can this be fixed? if not Thunderbird is no longer fit for purpose.

I don't want to have to start messing around installing an earlier version

Using Ubuntu 18.04 with KDE Plasma.

When a new mail arrives Thunderbird plays a sound and shows a notification, but when I'm not at the computer at that time I just miss new mails as there is no other indicator that a mail arrived. This used to be fixed by the New Mail Attention addon which made Thunderbird's icon flash in the panel until clicked, but "New Mail Attention is incompatible with Thunderbird 60.2.1". What now?

Thunderbird updated to 60.2.1 and Lightning disappeared. I followed the guidance in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/calendar-updates-issues-thunderbird, and got Lightning back (V6.2.2.1). However, in Get Add-ons, it is still grayed out and listed as "incompatible with your version of Thunderbird", which is a bit disconcerting. My life is in my calendar, and I can't afford compatibility issues.

Is this just a matter of the add-ons library not having the most up-to-date version (or a bad compatibility checker), but what was somehow magically reloaded into my Thunderbird is completely fine? Or is the latest version that has been reloaded actually still incompatible in some way, and I'm waiting for the other shoe to fall with problems that will turn up later?

It's moot, though! -In November, I suddenly stopped being able to receive. I've had their tech people help me set up as either POP3 or IMAP and neither works. After an hour (over two hours yesterday) they always end up saying it's Mozilla's problem. -I've uninstalled Thunderbird several times, including deleting hidden files that contained remnants. -I usually get the message ""Thunderbird failed to find the settings for your email account." -Other attempts give me "Configuration could not be verified - is the username or password wrong?", or "User name or password invalid." That is wrong! -On Xfinity's site, I can both send and receive directly from there. They claim this proves the problem is with you. -I'm suspicious that Comcast/Xfinity has changed their setup and Thunderbird hasn't been updated.

FYI - I've been using T=Bird for years so not a noob. Developers: This is an important security feature and should be repaired.

Just "upgraded" to 18.04 Xubuntu 32-bit which includes T-bird 60.2 and experienced the following. (no add-ons) New messages were being marked "read" immediately when moused over or selected, no delay. Not usually a problem because there was a settings in Tools>Options>Display... The problem is that with 60.2 this Tools feature is gone (on my install) and there is no access to the unread/read delay setting. I solved the problem by going into the flags ("Here be Dragons", accessed via Preferences>Advanced > Config Editor) Warning! Do not use the config editor unless you are confident you won't damage anything. Open Config Editor> Search: "message_read" no quotes You should see the three results / flags below. To enable delay change "read.delay;false" to true. This is done by either a double click or right click > select Toggle. After you change it it will be bold, that's normal. It's just to let you know it was modified. Leave the other two as is unless you want more or less of a delay then change the number at "delay.interval" mine was 5 so it's fine. Leave "read.auto" set to true. Close the editor and it's done.

(this is how it looks when delay is disabled) mailnews.mark_message_read.auto;true mailnews.mark_message_read.delay;false mailnews.mark_message_read.delay.interval;5

(this is delay enabled) mailnews.mark_message_read.auto;true mailnews.mark_message_read.delay;true mailnews.mark_message_read.delay.interval;5

That's it. Your messages will now change from unread to read in 5 seconds not instantly. If you have the Tools>Options on your system by all means avoid the Config Editor but since it's missing on mine it's probably missing on others' as well. I searched for a solution before posting this and didn't find it so hope this is helpful to someone.

I upgraded to Thunderbird 60.2.1 on Linux Mint and I'm having some trouble with fonts.

The first problem was that the size of fonts in my sent/received emails became much larger. I had it set to 14 but it looked like it was 16. Changing the font size under Preferences -> Display -> Default font -> Size had no effect, and the font size remained the same size whatever I set it to. Checking in the Config Editor I found the setting that changed by Default font -> Size is font.size.variable.x-western. After messing around for a while I tried changing font.size.variable.x-unicode and found this is what changes the font size in sent/received emails. It therefore seems that Thunderbird 60 is now using the x-unicode font while the Default font -> Size settings are still changing the x-western font. Is this a bug or has something gone wrong on my system?

The second issue I have is that many emojis are now showing as the simple monochrome versions instead of the full colour versions, so there seems to be another font issue. Looking at the values of font.name.sans-serif.x-western and font.name.sans-serif.x-unicode I found both of them are set to the default and that the Value box is empty. Checking another machine that still had Thunderbird 52.9.1 on I found that font.name.sans-serif.x-western and font.name.sans-serif.x-unicode where also set to the default on that, but the Value box contained sans-serif. I tried setting the two values manually to sans-serif on Thunderbird 60.2.1 but emojis continued not to display correctly. I also looked what font Firefox uses, since emojis display correctly in that, and found it uses DejaVu Serif. Out of interest I tried setting font.name.sans-serif.x-unicode to DejaVu Serif, but while the appearance of the font changed to a serif font, many emojis remained monochrome. What's the best way to get emojis displaying correctly in Thuderbird 60 on Linux?

Thanks for any advice you can offer.

In Thunderbird 60.0, when moving emails, a "thumbnail" of the email lines is showing, which will hide the highlighting of the destination folder.

In older version, I could easily move several emails from one folder to another and see the highlighting of the destination folder.

How can I change this back to the previous way?

When only moving one email, this is not a big issue (still a little one), but when moving several, it is, as I cannot know for sure at which folder I'm pointing. (Screenshot attached)

I've found that, if I drag in the left side of the lines, or at the top or bottom line, I can avoid hiding the destination folder, but this is not a very convenient way of organising my emails.
