Hello again, Curtis.
I haven't followed your Thunder bird trials and tribulations
closely, so the following is based on some assumptions.
1. You are trying to install the quick folder navigation add-on.
2. You are using the instructions in the tutorial on
3. You have downloaded the .xpi file.
If my assumptions are incorrect, you can probably skip the rest
of this email.
You will recall that I mentioned that a few things in the
tutorial are out of date. The section on installing the quick
folder navigation add-on is one of those. Try the following
Select extensions in the list.
Click the tools for all add-ons button. This is a little quirky.
Tab to the button and press spacebar. Doing that doesn't click
it, at least for me. You then have to route the mouse to that
button and click it with the left click key. If you don't press
spacebar first, you may get an object has no location message from
Select install add-on from file from the menu.
Navigate to the the quick folders navigation add-on. Press enter
or click the open button to install the add-on.
Also, you should install the mozilla enhancements add-on for
NvDA, if you haven't already done so. It makes both Thunder bird
and firefox easier to use. The best thing about this add-on as
far as Thunder bird is concerned is that it makes arranging
message headers much easier.

the issue I have is that I can't get the button to import from
add-on manager. the download happened in my browser, Chrome, and
the xpi file is, I thought if I just associate the file to
thunderbird.exe it would work. but, instead, thunderbird just
created an outgoing message with the add-on as an attachment. :)
There is suppose to be a button somewhere near the seach feature
in the add-on, but when I go to "all add-ons that my browser
comes up and I am back to the beginning of having them download
to my download area and not directly into T-bird. Again, the
issue is finding that import button in the add-on manager which
is suppose to be right next to the "search" button according to
the help I read.

The add-on you are talking about is called Quick Folder
Navigation. It's actually quite good and I do use it on my

Try opening the message, hit alt m, m
again, then right arrow and then you can arrow up or
down to the folder you want and hit enter and the
message will go into that folder. There is a add on that
escapes my memory. Something like single key navigation
that will move you to the folders quicker.

My thing is that I cannot get
Thunderbird to change folders where I wish messages to
go in that combobox of my folders. I've made folders
for message groups E.G. nvda, windows ten, blindtech,
etc. but how to get them to change? I press enter and
get an error message so what is the secret?

Also is there a way of having
more than one filter applied to the sorting order
of emails in inbox.
To my knowledge, one can have as
many filters as one needs. You just need to pay
attention on the filters' order, because they will
run according with what you have done first.
does anyone know of any add-on to move all
messages from one subject as in the threads to
create one combined email.
don't need an add-on to do it, not really. On the
"order by" (or something like that) menu, you'll
find an option to group the messages on a certain
subject in only one thread.
Sorry, I believe I couldn't help as much as I'd
like, but I hope you find at least one thing that I
just wrote useful for answering your questions.
