Hello Gean and all.
I got it fixed!
Turns out I had the thread view unchecked.
Now the add on can see the columns.

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 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 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.
