thank you again George, my huge problem is that I cannot get the
combo box to change when I wish any filter to deposit messages in
any folder under my inbox for the account I am working in.
I'll try that example, as you know I've not been able to install
anything yet which my browser found to my download folder into
Thunder Bird yet, but now you've shown me the way.
I'll go to the NVDA add-on page and get the t-bird add-on,
George, I recall your name from the "readit," days, remember that
fine reader / file handler? :) I go a ways back, so as you can
tell I've been doing computers for awhile. :)
Seems to me you had a bit to do with that software?

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tutorial are out of date.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 NVDA.
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 to work, you have to close thunderbird and
then restart it.
I've downloaded the add-on, how to get it into my
thunderbird? thanks guys for the off-topic messages.

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

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.

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.
