Environment: Thunderbird 31.4.0 on Ubuntu 14.04/14.10
Symptoms: Emails from Yahoo Mail are received, but do not appear in the preview and do not appear when double-clicked upon to open up a fresh tab.
Example: An email arrives. It shows up in the Inbox with a bold entry in the table, indicating that it is unread. Clicking on that line does not change the read state; it remains marked as unread. The preview pane looks like:
Double-clicking on the line also does not change the read state, and the Conversation Reader tab that opens up looks like:
Right-clicking on the line and choosing Mark > As Read will mark it as read, though this does not affect my ability to read the messages.
What Is Unaffected:
- My RSS feeds behave normally
- Calendar behaves normally
- Print Preview of an email message works, so the email bodies are definitely being downloaded.
When This Happened: It started about two weeks ago. I seem to recall getting an Thunderbird update, which would have been to 31.4.0, right before this started.
Attempts at Mitigation:
- I have upgraded Ubuntu to 14.10, with no effect
- I have moved my
~/.thunderbirddirectory to a temporary location, uninstalled Thunderbird, reinstalled Thunderbird, and moved my original
~/.thunderbirddirectory back to its original location, with no effect
- I followed the "Rebuilding the Global Database" instructions, with no effect.
Any suggestions on how I can get Thunderbird to allow me to read my emails again?
