Thunderbird 115 Calendar View scaled wrong

Ever since the latest upgrade of Thunderbird mailclient to version 115 many people have experienced problems. It started with the setting being changed to compact for the density of the mailbox views. That solution was simple; just change in your menu “View – Density” and change it back to ‘default‘.

However the view of the calendar has been giving problems. The right-hand-side of it is outside of the visible window, basically dropping off the date from the view; see screenshot and yes, that is to the edge of my screen with Thunderbird maximized.

So, how do we solve this?
Go to “Tools – Settings – General” and at the bottom open the ‘Config Editor…’
Now search for ‘layout.css.devPixelsPerPx‘ and change that value to 0.9
Since this scales everything on the screen, you may want to increase your font-size next:
Go to “View – Font Size – Increase Font Size”, and see the second screenshot for the result.
Good luck!

That’s all Folks!
Have a nice day…

Descending Sort Order Thunderbird

I prefer my most recent emails at the top of the list. Unfortunately Thunderbird (and many other mail clients) do this different.
So how do I change the default sort order?
Change the advanced options!

If you want to sort all mail by DateDescending (newest at top), change the preferences in the config editor to:

mailnews.default_sort_order:    default     integer      2
mailnews.default_sort_type:     default     integer     18

So, what does that 2 stand for? And why 18?

Thunderbird outlook hotmail messages appear twice in SENT-folder

How can I keep sent messages from appearing twice in the ” sent ” folder. I am using and e-mail addresses with IMAP.
Each time I send a message with Thunderbird the sent message is put in the “sent” folder two times.
What setting needs to be changed to in order to have only one copy of the message put in the “sent” folder?

The answer:
Outlook/Hotmail and gmail automatically put copies of sent mail in the imap sent folder. If you have settings to also keep a copy then two are being put in the sent folder.

right click on imap mail account in Folder Pane
select 'Settings'
select 'Copies & Folders'
in 'When sending messages, automatically:'
uncheck : 'Place a copy in:'
click OK
