I have Ubuntu 18.10 and if I get a new E-mail from Thunderbird the red notifier on Dock (button) is not visible.

Have somebody an idea what happens?


In Thunderbird General preferences, check the following setting...

If you're using the Dash to Dock GNOME extension, the email message counter won't display, and this setting should be set to off.

  • I don't see the setting "Show in the messaging menu" in my Thunderbird 60.6.1. – Filbuntu Apr 27 '19 at 0:51
  • @Filbuntu I have the same version, and I have it. I don't know if it does anything any more though on 19.04 with no Dash-to-Dock GNOME extension. – heynnema Apr 27 '19 at 3:20
  • I forgot to add that I am on Ubuntu 18.04 and that may explain that I don't see this setting. Interestingly the red notifier on the Dock was present a year ago but at some point vanished, not sure why and where to :) . – Filbuntu Apr 27 '19 at 7:20
