There is one type of email it doesn't seem to work well with, and
that's the notifications from Twitter with your daily digest and
telling you so-and-so tweeted something. When I open those with
bird I get some gobble deegook that starts with IMap and includes
my email user name. If you right click it you can open the message
in another window. If you play with it enough you can get the
right click menu to give you the option to open the link, but only
once did it open the correct link from the message I wanted, the
second time it just opened my home page on Twitter. So far the
Twitter emails are the only ones I've had trouble with.

Most lists don't require using reply to all.

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

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
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.

which app is that? Mozilla Apps

the one you're talking about. My friend is

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 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

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
