- Shut down the program.
- Run the Thunderbird fix. (Windows: Start - Support - Reset Thunderbird). Important note!: Be aware that if you have made your own settings inside the program, these may have to be redone afterwards.
You may also look for a solution to your problems at the Mozilla project pages or by doing a general web search.
