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

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.

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.
