Thanks for trying John,
I could just hear you, picking up a letter or two now and then, but not enough for a QSO.

Re: [OT] Thunderbird .msf file problem

Hi Jeff and all,

The mystery has disappeared. While desperately poking at buttons and menu choices, I happened to hit the "Quick Filter" button and the read files magically appeared .  I had not touched the button since before downloading 68.3.1 (32-bit)  The problem now seems fixed on my screen.   Hope no one else has had the same problem

Thank you Jeff for hanging with me on this, your observations were spot on.

I'm not saying that there aren't bugs in this version of Thunderbird... but the problem Terry reports doesn't seem to be a universal problem.

Terry, you might look to see if you're using some old/bad plugins...
Also: could another email client you use (a smart phone or tablet) be disrupting things?
