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

confident my second suggestion will and I don't know about the

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
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.

I 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.
