I cannot return to the window that displays the inbox/sent/drafts/trash

Resolved Question:

I cannot return to the window that displays the "inbox/sent/drafts/trash" etc on the left. I went to full size screen for an incoming email photo and the left side folder display went away. I have shut and opened the program several times since then. I have gone to "view" & "window" @ the top and the dialog boxes don't give me a way to regain the left side category display. This is Firefox that was recently installed on a new "used" mac. I have always used a PC before. It must be a simple thing to do but I cannot solve the puzzle. thanks! Marla

Sounds like the left pane got minimized. To fix it hover your mouse cursor at the leftmost edge of the Thunderbird window until the cursor changes to double horizontal arrow, then click and drag to the right.


That should unhide the pane.


Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.
