Does "mailnews.localizedRe" still work? If yes, how?

The (preinstalled) default value is "AW,Aw,aw". But when I reply to a message whose subject line begins with "AW:", Thunderbird prepends it with "Re:", so that after a few back and forths we have silly subjects like "Re: AW: Re: AW: Re: AW: .............. ".

Has "mailnews.localizedRe" stopped working? Or how can I get it to work? Thank you!

I sometimes get many replies to a posting. I then quickly go through messages, but this leaves many tabs open. I want to be able to set something so that when I run through many messages, the tab associated with a message closes automatically after I move on to the next message. Failing that, can I close all tabs with a single click?

Just updated from version 60.9.1 to latest (don't ask why). Just spent hours putting things back the way they were, but cannot find a way to get rid of the screen containing things like "Choose What to Set Up", "Import from Another Program", "About Mozilla Thunderbird" etc that shows when no folder is selected from any account (see attached screenshot). I would prefer to see a blank screen in this area when no account folder is selected as previously.

Any way to remove this? if not, how about taking this as a request. Thanks.

I would like to "manage" the shortcuts as they appear on my opening page. I don't know if it's possible.

I find the current icons boring and not quickly informative. I'd like, for example, to Alphabetize them, and to not show some of them without actually removing them from my bookmarks list.

Can anyone assist?

I don't see the option OAuth2 in the list of Authentication methods.

I need this in order to accommodate microsoft's recent changes.

Since a few days now my URL bar is too small. I can see where it used to be in light gray, but the text box is just a small part of it. I searched everywhere but I can not find anything to fix it. I even tried to reset the settings to default but it is still the same. Any idea what I can do?

Here is a screenshot of how it looks like when I click into the text box: (see attached)

Hi,

I used to operate my emails using POP3 and 'get messages' whenever I wanted to check for new mail, rather than automatically downloading. I disabled the settings in server settings for the auto fetch new emails, but the emails still come through automatically.

Is this due to the change from POP3 to exchange and cannot be overridden, or am I missing something here?

Thanks

The system continues to tell me that my original email address is the primary address. That address has been hacked and I need to remove it and replace it. I am then told I need to add a secondary address before I can change. I go into the area where this is done and when I press add it says that the new address is already there. How do I get rid of the hacked address and replace it with the new one (which Mozilla does actually recognize!)?

Despite what one contributor claims (that, "saving custom colours outside a session doesn't happen, as it has never been a windows feature") it certainly used to. And I'm talking MS-Paint in Windows 3.11 !

However, back to today... I keep Thunderbird open and minimized as this feature got broken or lost long ago and I need custom colours to be retained. This latest release (115.9.0 (32-bit)), however, has even lost the ability to keep a colour pallet from one email to the next.

Quite frustrating, as I use different colours for different clients. soem have very specific codes, which I have to replicate each time I am about to send.
