Thunderbird won't show headers
 
Hi Folks.

Anyone else out there have this problem? I've noticed after my upgrade
to Gutsy (and Thunderbird 2.0) that Thunderbird no longer shows headers
for any of my mail - either in the preview pane or in the message pane.
Toggling them on/off does nothing and I've been unable to find
anything else in Google as of yet.

Thanks in advance.

Go to View -> Headers menu and click on All or Normal according to what you
want. In the message pane you should see a blue rightward-pointing arrow to
the left of Subject:
Click on that arrow (which will then point downwards) and you'll see the
headers.
Cheers,
Jonathan

Toggling them on and off does nothing. Thanks for the suggestion but
this has already been tried.

I don't even see From or Subject etc. in the preview pane or in an
opened message window.

user_pref("mailnews.max_header_display_length", 9);

Hi David, Try (Ctrl u) and another window will open with the headers
listed.
Hope that helps... Graham.

in past when then the mozilla UI was borked like this a file in the profile
called "compreg.dat" was to blame.

So i suggest to close all TB windows and remove that and try again.
Do not worry, this file will be recreated during next TB startup (basically
itīs a cachefile of some sort).

also
XUL.mfasl xpti.dat XPC.mfasl
are candidates of that sort (same procedure).

Thanks for all the replies. It turned out to be an extension gone bad.
I started TB in safe mode and saw headers, then I started TB and
removed all the extensions I don't use (including a headers management
one I had forgotten I installed and a second headers display toggle
extension I had installed in an effort to fix this) and magically things
are good again.
