Since others see your name, whatever the cause, you don't need to
worry. I see this:

It only said my email address, not my name.
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

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.

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.

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
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
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
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.
