After the latest update 102.3.3 I am totally confused how to handle mails. All the mails are in conversation format and the latest mail sits at the bottom most and doesnt show up in unread mail for some reason. I am spending hours searching for new mails and folders..Please give an option to revert to the earlier version if we dont like the update.

I had the same problem. I had many folders for various types of emails, such as RECEIPTS for paid on Internet . It downloaded old emails prior to 2021, nothing current. I want the old version back with my older folders intact. Nobody has explained how to retrieve.

Yes - that's also my opinion. Every two days a new update - and everything get worse. Stop this nonsense!

 Have any of you actually files a support request? https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new/thunderbird/form

This is a feedback forum designed to get quick ideas and feedback about changes.  Here I see three individuals, with at least two different problems.  Trying to do support for two different topics in one go is simply unworkable. Please raise a support request at the link above so someone can look at your individual issues with you.

I am assuming craigJ has issues from a new profile being created based on the exceedingly limited information posted. I wrote a bog post about that issue a couple of years ago. here https://thunderbirdtweaks.blogspot.com/2019/09/i-lost-my-profilemail-on-update-to.html

Adsaks is on about the change to default mail sorting to threaded, something that is fairly simple to change on a per folder basis.  View menu > sort by > unthreaded.

As for FredF, I have no idea what that issue is because it is a reply agreeing with two different issues.

Okay - This whole subfolder nonsense is annoying. I cannot find emails any more. I cannot make out where new emails arrived.

Sorry - I'm just a stupid German lawyer. But I don' t like the changes at all. And I will get another email client.

If something is working - why do you have to change to the worst?

I lost many important 2021 & 2022 emails. This new version SUCKS!!!! I want to know how to retrieve old sub-folders and emails and layout. I'm glad I didn't pay for this service. Looking for a GOOD replacement. Had Incredimail before, it was outstanding

And the Support is AWFUL!!!!!!

Updates to Thunderbird and Firefox get more and more horrible. Stop this subfolder nonsense in Thunderbird. And Firefox: Stop to implement all these nonsense plugins with each update like Ecosia, Amazon.com.au, etc.

# of unread msgs makes no sense anymore. Red badge used to increment when messages were actually in one's inbox. Now the number seems to appear before the messages are in the inbox, and the number shown (sometimes 99+) very rarely agrees with the number actually retrieved. Is this because I'm still using POP3 settings? Or a counter is counting spam never delivered to my inbox? Regardless, please change back the way it was: accurate and meaningful!
