Thunderbird address box (to, CC, BCC, subject) is suddenly really ugly.

When I write an email to the address area, it's really ugly and expanded to display several lines. It is a medium grey background with white lines of 3D with shadows. IMPORTANT: Change the theme makes no difference. I don't remember changing all the settings that would entail.
Area address includes the following as well as the formatting toolbar above the message box.
Option (to, CC, BCC, reply to)
Option (to, CC, BCC, reply to)

Try this: & t = 2798693

You will need to create a folder called chrome in your profile, Mail , ImapMailand inside it a file named userChrome.css, if you don't have them already. Neither exists by default in a vanilla Thunderbird installation.

The first active line of the userChrome.css file should be:

@namespace url("");

    Please do not post new discussions on the topic that were discussed here in the forum. I always recommend looking before opening the new thread.

    Then please check this:

    This problem occurs because Microsoft released a new patch for the closure of a breach of security in Windows Internet Explorer.
    But this patch has a bad influence on the Realtek audio chip.
    That's why Microsoft has released a patch to fix the old fix. ;)

  • cannot type anything on the email thunderbird, address, subject, body, etc...

  • When I open a new tab, the address box filled with an unwanted, unused address, it don't go there, I don't want filled automatically, how to fix?

    Whenever I open a new tab in Firefox, this address is the address bar: chrome://quick_start/content/index.html. Now, I have nothing against it, but I can't seem to get rid of it. I went to my settings and Add ons and it does not work. Tried to see if I could find somewhere in my internet settings on my computer control panel. I just had someone delete some serious virus and adware problems with my computer and I don't know that they put that in there. How to stop? If I call the place that fixed, they will probably charge me for fixing when it should be an easy fix.

    The page don't will NOT LOAD, it fills just the bar of address, and if I hit enter and then it loads... help please.

    Thank you very much.

    Do you already have an add-on named QuickStart? Maybe he leaves it behind.

    There is a parameter hidden what appears on new tabs, which you can modify as follows:

    (1) in a new tab, type or paste Subject: config in the address bar and press ENTER. Click on the button promising to be careful.

    (2) in the search above the list box, type or paste newtab and make a pause so that the list is filtered

    (3) double-click the preference browser.newtab.url and enter your favorite page:

    • (Default) page thumbnails = > subject: newtab
    • Blank tab = > subject: empty
    • Built-in Firefox homepage = > topic: welcome
    • Any other page = > full URL of the page

    Press Ctrl + t to open a new tab and check that it worked.

  • I can't change my list of JIU, as only 3 addresses appear in the BCC field

    When I look at the BCC list in draft mode, there is an address that I have not entered, and I don't know the person whose address is, but I could not find a way to remove the address, because when I go into edit mode, only the last three addresses I entered are visible on three separate Bcc lines.

    In addition, in mode draft, I see that a number of addresses appears twice, because, at the time, I was entering them, I needed to save the work and click the sign-. But when I opened it the first time, because I saw that the first three addresses, I have assumed that I had lost the others, so started coming again. Now I need to delete duplicate addresses, but even once, find no way to do it, because once I'm in don't change only three mode addresses may appear.

    Please can you help me?
    Thank you

    There is generally enough visible space 3-(Cc/BCC) fields as the automatic display.

    When there are multiple e-mail addresses can be established, a scroll bar should appear on the right side.

    However, by dragging the bar down reveals more.
    Place the cursor on the line and the cursor should change to a double arrow head.
    Left click and hold down the key to grab the line, and then drag.

  • Thunderbird address book

    After put them in a new drive hard and download & installation, Firefox and Thunderbird, I have no idea where my address book is on the old HD that I still have access to via another computer. Is it possible to capture, export or retrieve our old address book?

    All your emails, settings, the module, accounts and pwd etc is stored in a hidden subdirectory
    In win 7 her in: 'Drive': \Users\ 'Win - username' \AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\ 'profile name' , where profile name is a random name, often with the extension .default.

    Installation of an add-on ImportExportTools would give you the opportunity to import everything more. If you cannot access your old straight profile, copy the entire old profile to a stick or a memory card.

  • Contacts held as files separate .vcf won't matter in a Thunderbird address book at the same time.

    My old PC is Windows 7 and I used Outlook. Each contact takes place in a Contacts folder and take place in the form of separate .vcf files. When I try to import to my new PC (I now have Thunderbird on the new machine) each port file .vcf separately because it's own address book one-at-a-time, and it seems that I can't consolidate then in an address book. What should I wear these 213 files all at once in the address book file?

    You can import several files of vcf with MoreFunctionsForAddressBook (installation). In address book, contacts/import vCard/vcf MoreFunctionsForAddressBook/tools/Actions.

  • How can I import a vcf file in Thunderbird address book?

    I have a couple hundred contacts on my iPhone and want to get in Thunderbird as some e-mails are much faster using a PC, as opposed to the iPhone. I can get the iCloud contacts in a single .vcf file but cannot find a way to bring them into Thunderbird. Thanks for any help you can give me.

    The first thing to try is to click the icon of hamburger (3 bars), tools/import... ... Address book vCard file, and then select the .vcf file. Open address book and see if the new address book seems OK.
