I,ve sorted my inbox in thunderbird (V 11.0.1) by date and grouped them by sort. When I collapse the groups, they colapse. If I go to another account inbox or other folder such as trash, the inbox is no longer collapsed. Cannot find a way to solve this. I've uninstalled and reinstalled thunderbird - same as before.

Mozilla forum has no answers.

Any ideas?

Which OS? Works for me in OS X Lion and I haven't made any changes relevant to this. Also -- reinstalling Thunderbird may not help, as typically user settings are preserved. – lupincho Apr 12 '12 at 6:56
I'm using windows 7 – user127749 Apr 12 '12 at 11:46
You may want to add that to the question. Also, try the Thunderbird forums at – lupincho Apr 12 '12 at 12:14
