Question about Mozilla Thunderbird

The 'send' choices have disappeared. Can't send anymore

The way it's always been... there's been a line above the area where one writes his e-mails, and one of the things in that line, is 'send'. That line disappeared about three days ago, so I can't send messages now.

I suspect the Composition Toolbar is hidden. When you write a message, do you see the Menu Bar (the line with File Edit View)?

If you do, left click View >Toolbars > Composition Bar. A check mark will appear next to this option. Alternatively, right click on the menu bar and then left click on the line for the Composition Bar.

If you do not see the menu bar, press Alt on your keyboard. Then the menu bar will appear. Type V T O to get the check mark on the composition bar.

If you press Ctrl and Return together, you will send the email immediately without needing the Send button. Ctrl + Shift + Return will save the email to send later. Alt + F + d (File > Send Now) will also work. Alt + F + l store the email to send it later.

These steps will work for Windows. I believe you might need different keystrokes with Thunderbird on a Mac or Unix.

I hope this helps.

    I'm 80 years old, and didn't understand all of the directions that you gave me. So, I didn't have e-mail 'Send' for almost a week. Yesterday, I contacted a tech at our local internet service, and was on the phone with him for about a half hour. He told me what to do, and I followed his directions, and got the job done. So, please don't charge me a lot of money. You tried to help, and I'm willing to pay you, an amount up to $20, but no more than that... please.

Be sure to turn off the power and unplug the power cord before cleaning the machine.

  • The power cannot be turned off while the machine is sending or receiving a fax, or when the received fax or unsent fax are stored in the machine's memory. Make sure if the machine completed sending or receiving all the faxes before disconnecting the power cord.

  • The machine cannot send or receive faxes when the power is turned off.

  • If you unplug the power cord, all the faxes stored in the machine's memory will be deleted.

    Print the necessary faxes or save them to the memory card/USB flash drive before unplugging the power cord.

  1. Open the Document Tray.


  2. Open the Document Feeder Cover.


  3. With a soft, clean, lint-free and dry cloth, wipe off any paper dust from the inside of the Document Feeder Cover (A).


  4. After wiping, close the Document Feeder Cover by pushing it until it clicks into place.

  5. Close the Document Tray. speed printer service

Got a playstation display and it has a bluish purple vertical line down the tv but it disappears when any red shows up in thae area of the line any ideas what's wrong with it and if it can be fixe

The display unit is defective, some IC seems to be damaged, it can be repaired from any repair shop, but I don't think the cost will be low, as the display is manufactured by Sony and the spares are not available easily .

,i have my load but it is always says check operator services everytime i try to send a message

If the message "Check Operator Services" appears on the screen of your mobile when you attempt to make a call/sms, you should:
Check if there's a number 2 on the left hand corner of your screen.
If so, press and hold the # (hash) key until you see the message "Change the Phone Line?".
Press OK. The message "Line 1 selected" should then appear and the number 2 will disappear.
Attempt to make a call.
Note: Line 2 is an option on Nokia mobiles that's selected by holding down the hash key and pressing OK. Vodafone doesn't support this feature. You can prevent accidental changing of lines by activating your keypad lock. On some handsets, you can do this by pressing "Menu" then "*" to lock the keypad. "Menu" then "*" will unlock.
