That's right. I was thinking about the other add-on, which is a
Mozilla add-on. It allows first letter navigation in the folders
tree view and it is included in the copy of the program I sent.

You could try uninstalling and installing Thunderbird again and the
NVDA add-on, but just using the portable version would, I think, be
a better solution.

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

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 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.

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.
