I sent the wrong link. I'll send the properly modified version to
Dropbox and send the correct link later today.

don't know what is causing the problem, there are two things I

confident my second suggestion will and I don't know about the
first, but I consider the first to be an inferior choice. You
might consider running the portable version for the reasons I give
below, as well.
Uninstalling and reinstalling the program is one and the other is
trying Thunderbird portable.
There are one or two minor or very minor things you can't do with
the portable version but in general, it does everything the
installed version does. In addition, if the program ever becomes
corrupted, you can have a back up copy and just delete the one you
are using, then copy the backup to the location where you keep the
one you use.
And you can use the program from an external drive or copy it to
any computer you wish and use it.
Here is a link to download an old version of the program with the
add-on already installed and the from line already displaying at
the top. The program will automatically update after it has been
placed on the machine but even if the add-on doesn't work, the
program may need nothing changed. I expect the add-on to work,
however, since it did in this copy on my machine.
Its a portable program so unzip the files wherever you want and,
when in the folder, type t to get to Thunderbird.exe. Press enter
to run the program. You can also send a shortcut to
Thunderbird.exe to the desktop and create a short cut command to
run it that way if you wish.

just installed Thunderbird yesterday, got the afore-mentioned
addon, and had no problems moving columns opening the dialogue
with NVDA+H, though I got the no column headers found error once
until I made sure I was in the message list. Today a friend
decided to get Thunderbird as well, just installed the addon,
and gets the message column headers not found. I remoted in and
tried matching some of her view menu settings to mine, but still
can't get the column headers dialogue on her machine. Being in
the message list or even in a specific message doesn't help.
Rebooting NVDA and Thunderbird didn't help. We're both using the
latest Thunderbird and NVDA with Windows 10. Any settings she
needs to change to get this to work? She wants to move
correspondents to the top of the list just like I did. Thanks.
