Thunderbird

Is it just me or has Thunderbird gotten cumbersome, slow and unreliable? I prefer an email client for organising folders to the gmail offering. Thanks

There is nothing to stop you from using Gmail Labels just like folders.

eM Client is a good choice. There are some emails that Thunderbird just doesn't render, even with an add-on.

I think it maybe you. or your email server. My Thunderbird is working fine.

Thanks I'll give both eM and Gmail labels a try and make a choice. I ended up using an old version of Thunderbird and preventing updates because a new version started freezing. Even then it is still very slow and only loads a few emails at a time if I have some catching up to do. All started about 6 months back, and I have used Tbird for years. Maybe there is an interaction somewhere.

My Thunderbird is working fine, V.52.70 (32bit) but. the Theme Font & Size changer suddenly stooped working. Tried deleting it, reinstalling from new download several times but still won't work!
Any solutions to fix it?

Must be just you I've used it for years and it's still the same, have you updated it?

It automatically updates lythand1, it's happened once before but a new install of the Theme font size changed fixed it, now after a year or so it stopped working again. I'll keep deleting and reinstalling, hopefully get it working again.

My Thunderbird is working well. albeit 45.8.0.
I can't get anymore updates as it tells me my system is out of date.
Way better than Outlook Express that I use to use then the sparks said I had to change over.
A new machine will be good when I get to it. I hope! ?

"used thunderbird for years" . Maybe all the old thunderbird files have become cumbersome and its time for a clearout. Do a export of all your mail, save it to the desktop so you can find it. Uninstall Thunderbird and use a third party uninstaller like the iobit one which clears out registry stuff too. Then install the latest thunderbird and import the mail back.

Mozbackup will make this an easy task.
