Thunderbird (TB) feedback and issues : how / where ?

I just end up here following TB's "Submit feedback", and I don't find how to locate current issues and how to report problems. So, just in case...

  1. It was a nice surprise to find the ability to activate two dictionnaries to allow for dual language spell checking. I've been asking for this for (too) many years, a feature that was in my old beloved Eudora 25 years ago. Great !
  2. The message finder is still horrible, simply unusable if you have tens of thousands of emails to seearch from (as I do). Again Eudora was so great (using X1 under the hood). The problem is not the search engine, but the results display UI ! Is there any work on this ?
  3. Version 102 crashes a lot. Windows10. It seems mainly due to the incoming message pop up window, almost systematic. I have to wait until it dissolves to click anywhere in TB, other TB hangs using all the processor.

If someone knows a better place for my questions, pls share, and apologies if I posted where I shouldn't have.

Hey @bcuzeau

This is the right place for general product feedback and ideas for new features/enhancements. If you're looking to report any issues or receive product support (for example, your third point above) the correct site is Thunderbird Support. Hope this helps!

kontakt verteilerliste hinzufügen
https://support.mozilla.org/de/kb/verteilerlisten-erstellen-und-verwenden#w_uber-das-adressbuch

Im Helptext fehlt der Hinweis, den

https://www.helpster.de/thunderbird-adressenverwaltung-so-geht-s_105216

gibt:

Gehen Sie nun mit dem Cursor auf "Persönliches Adressbuch". Hier sehen Sie alle erfassten Kontakte. Setzen Sie den Cursor auf den Namen, den Sie zu der Liste hinzufügen möchten, und ziehen ihn mit der Maus auf den Namen der Liste.

BESSER WÄRE: Nachdem man eine Verteilerliste angeklickt / ausgewählt hat, eine Funktion KONTAKT HINZUFÜGEN einbauen!!!!

1. I agree. The spelling improvement is great

2. If you mean the global search facet results display with the time line, there is not an "immediate" plan to replace it.  But it is on the list of functions to be improved.

3. Jon is correct, the best place to post about problems is at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new/thunderbird   Were you able to post there?

There is a layout annoyance in the mail folders listing: since the upgrade the number of mails in any folder is right up against the scroll bar for folders which actually overlaps the last digit of the number of mails.  I've tried changing the column widths, but so far the only way I've found to see the number of mails in a folder clearly is to add the "size" column - which in turn getspartially occluded but the scroll bar!
