Local Folders issue SOLVED by disabling Hardware Acceleration

After installing version 78.4.0 (and continuing into 78.4.1), I have an issue with many of the folders in my Local Folders account. When I click on an affected Local Folder folder, it is not highlighted and no messages appear. Messages will appear if I scroll the mouse pointer over the message pane. I can then also read the messages, etc. If I move to another Local Folders folder, messages may appear or they may not (always the same folders) until I move the mouse pointer as described above. Note that the folder name is also not highlighted after clicking it. Sometimes the entire folder/account column on the left side of the screen is blank until I scroll the mouse pointer over that column. Very annoying! Any ideas? FYI - I have tried "repairing" the folders in question. That does cause the messages to appear but as soon as the folder loses focus, the problem reappears - meaning the messages disappear and do not reappear until I either scroll the mouse pointer over the message pane or re-repair the folder.

Hi, In the new version of Thunderbird, the folder pane, despite having been set as directed, is invisible until I pass my cursor over it, and so is all the mail in the inbox invisible unless I swipe over it. Once I have written an email, both lists revert to this invisible appearance again. This is quite irritating. I would like to see the lists constantly as normal without having to continually swipe over them to make them appear.

Is there some way to stop this from happening?

Thank you

Thunderbird updated automatically last week. It crashed my computer (not just the program) every time the new email notification box came up. I turned off notifications. That helped, but if my computer loses connection to the internet, Thunderbird crashes. The program is incredibly slow and unstable. When I click on an email, I end up with parts of two windows. Eventually, the system catches up and the screen looks fine. If I try to draft an email, I again get parts of two windows until it catches up.

Thunderbird has been among my all time favorite programs. I have used it for years and have never had any issues until this update. Help!

Good day. After update to Thunderbird 91, a strange issue occured. When opening e-mails a strange colour lines starting from upper left corner of the screen ("File" location) occurs. At reply/create e-mail window dark grey wide lane across the borders of TO: CC: area occurs.

Trying to solve the problem at Troubleshoot mode helps and issues disapears, but after restarts occurs againg. It looks onlu in troubleshoot mode visualization of the screens is normal and good.

I am atthaching screen shot for reference.
