[Bug 264142] Re: Thunderbird will not display emails any more!

Since I submitted this bug report, I have managed to get my copy of
Thunderbird working again.

In the screenshot, you can just see that the left-hand border looks a
bit wider than the right-hand border.

There is normally a narrow vertical bar that separates the list of
folders, on the left, and the list of emails, on the right.  This bar
had moved to the extreme left of the main window, and had merged with
the border of the window.

I was able to use my mouse to separate the vertical bar from the border
of the window.  I was then able to move it to where it should be, so
that the list of folders appeared on its left, and the list of emails
appeared on its right.

I think this problem was initially caused by a fault in my mouse, or in
software that controls my mouse.  This is not under the control of
Thunderbird developers.

Perhaps this sort of problem, with the vertical bar disappearing and
with no visible way to get it back, could be prevented.  There could be
a minimum gap of 20 pixels between the vertical bar and the left-hand

Or possibly there could be an item in the View menu to restore the view
to normal.

Thunderbird will not display emails any more!
