Registry value or policies.json key for a headers only IMAP configuration?

Hey all -

We're running Thunderbird on a terminal server, and I was wondering if there was either a registry value or a key:value entry for the policies.json management option that would allow me to set all instances of Thunderbird, globally, for all users, to download headers only and otherwise use the server (which is on the same network as our terminal server) to pass the message content?

This would be super useful for us as we'd prefer to keep messages stored on our email server, rather than downloading more copies onto our virtual terminal server, and duplicating the use of our limited space.

Is there any way to do this, so that all Thunderbird instances would be forced to operate in "headers only" mode?

I am using Thunderbird 91.5.0 with Windows 10 and over the past months have run into trouble with the Qucik search function. I have 3 different email accounts combined into a unified folder and upon using quick search to look for emails from a specific sender, it will only display certain emails or only the emails I wrote to that person. This also happens when I tried to search the individual email accounts. I have disabled the Global Search and uninstalled the Conversations app but the problem persists. This is driving me nuts - any help would be much appreciated as I can't continue using Thunderbird if I can't fix this. Many thanks.

Greetings,

I am running 91.5.0 (64-bit). And for the last year or so, I was accessing all my various TB profiles by going to HELP -> MORE TROUBLESHOOTING INFORMATION -> ABOUT PROFILES and then I would get the option to launch any profile I wanted.

The problem is that now when I launch any other profile then it comes up totally blank. It is just a shell. All the info is missing.

Your guidance and help is kindly requested...thank you!!

Like many others, I am of two minds on the recent change to TB opening pdf files in the browser. On the plus side, it is faster an more convenient. But there is negative aspect - sometimes I need to do things to the file and that is not possible in the TB viewer. Whence the suggestion: instead of the drop-down menu with Open, Save as, etc. why not have in addition to (or instead of) OPEN a menu OPEN WITH. Even better, the open with menu could be populated in preferences by the apps we wish to use.

Hi there, Recently updated to Catalina but don't seem to receiving any Thunderbird notifications, and the app icon is not

I have made sure notifications are switched on in Preferences > General of Thunderbird. I am using version 91.5.0

I have headed to the System Preferences > Notifications pane in Catalina, but Thunderbird is not listed. I am using version 10.15.7 of Catalina.

Any thoughts very welcome!

Thanks
