Hi,

since the newest versions of Thunderbird "threaded" conversations seems to be the default view setting for all folders.

We have 1000's of folders and would very much appreciate the possibility to change this view setting for all folders...not having to change it per folder individually.

So - either back to the setting off by default please - or a function to enable/disable the view setting "sort by thread" for all folders at once.

No product should make updates which change a customer's settings. It only frustrates the customers and wastes their time having to figure out how to fix what the update has broken.

Any updates on this matter? It is annoying when a folder without any reason changes to threaded view.

this worked for me: go to config editor and search. mailnews.default_view_flags. change to 0

Viola!

Annoying, heavy-handed, over-reaching, and frustrating. Exactly NOT what I'm looking for in a desktop email client

What Vangelis said: "No product should make updates which change a customer's settings. It only frustrates the customers and wastes their time having to figure out how to fix what the update has broken."

And "frustrates" is putting it mildly.

Just allow us to change all folders to "Unthreaded"

Votes?  Return to previous standard, unvoted, traditional, custom, SOP, routine of NON nested threads.  THREADS OFF!  Who needs a vote?  Just give me the tools to turn it off.  In the future, "If it's workin', don't fix it!"

Having our hundreds of folders set to threaded by default is inefficient and annoying. Please STOP MAKING DSECISIONS and overriding settings without giving users the option to modify DEFAULT settings.

I do not use or like the threaded view and would like to see an option to turn it off globally. I too have numerous folders and subfolders and it's too tedious turning the threaded view off or even using the plug-in that provides this functionality. Furthermore I noticed that during the last month or so Thunderbird keeps setting the threaded view back on.

I missed important mails because they got hidden somewhere in a thread after a thunderbrid update. It's annoying to have to do this on every folder seperately.
