Sorry for the empty post.
Just one quick question, please. Is there any way to apply the column
change to all folders, or do you have to change it in all folders
Thanks Brian, so much for your help

Brian, thank you for such great step-by-step instructions. I did not have the
add-on so have it now and have changed my columns. I really wish you would write
a tutorial with such great step-by-step instructions on the most commonly asked
questions about NVDA.

following presumes you have already installed the previously noted Mozilla
Apps Enhancements add on, have restarted NVDA, and have Thunderbird up and
running with focus on the Thunderbird window.
1. Hit NVDA+H. A
dialog entitled, Manage columns, appears. That dialog is composed of a
list of the columns in the order they are currently being displayed from left
to right, with the leftmost column at the top of the list.
next thing I suggest you do, but this step is optional, is to hit ALT+O, which
will cause the list of Thunderbird columns, in Thunderbird itself, to be
displayed with a checkbox in front of those columns you wish to have
displayed, and nothing (unchecked) for those you want to hide. It's
worth down arrowing through that column list and deciding if there are any
currently checked (displayed) columns you'd like to hide, and uncheck those,
and vice versa. Hitting ESC closes the Thunderbird column selection
process and throws you back to the Mozilla Apps Enhancements
3. Back in the dialog column list, gain focus on the
column that you would like to move. If you want it to be to the left of
where it is (and that means it would be announced first), then hit ALT+U to
move it up by one position. Repeat the ALT+U as many times as necessary
to get it where you want it. If you want this column to be announced
later than it currently is (moving it to the right/down the list), hit ALT+D
as many times as necessary to get it where you want it relative to other
4. Review your column order by going to the top of the
list and down arrowing through it so you know what the "First announced to
last announced" order is. If you find a mistake, then repeat step 3,
moving the column or columns to where you want them.
5. Navigate to the
Close button for the dialog and activate it. You're done.
