Does it say both your name and e-mail address? What about when you
get mail from others?

Is there a way to not make it say the email
address when I sent out a test message to myself?
Perhaps it is checked by default. I never
had to change the setting.

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.

Hi, 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.
