    Those are the emails you've opened as tabs. Each should have a close x on it.
    If you don't need to have the messages open in tabs (to switch back and forth between them), you can set TB to open them in a new window via Tools>Options>Advanced>Reading and Display tab.
    Check the box "open messages in:">A new message window.
    Or use the Preview Panel by clicking View>Layout>check "Message Pane". That will display the message you select without opening it separately.

    I don't like your ID image. We have had too much snow this winter. But I am really writing to ask how to get to "Tools>Options>Advanced>Reading and Display tab." I don't see it on my TB home page. I have looked for nested dialog boxes but I can't find the path.

    thanks, Frank

    Open Thunderbird and click the "hamburg" icon (the 3 horizontal lines) upper right of the window.
    Click on Options and a menu opens. Click Options on that menu.
    In the Options dialog that opens, click Advanced on the upper right.
    Click on the Reading and Display tab.

    I assume you don't have the Menubar showing with File, Edit, View, Tools, Help. If you'd like to have that, click the "hamburg" icon>Options and place a check by Menu bar. You can also get it to pop into view temporarily by pressing the Alt key on your keyboard if you don't want it all the time.

    There, I changed my avatar. Spring's here a week early. :D
