Thanks Gene. You mention an addon that's included with the
portable Thunderbird, which app is that? Mozilla Apps enhancements
is an NVDA addon, not a Thunderbird addon, so not sure if that's
the one you're talking about. My friend is on the list and
watching this thread, so we'll see if she has any luck with it.

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

Since I don't know what is causing the problem, there are two
things I will suggest, though I don't know if either will
help. I am 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
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.
