A while back, I asked about what newsgroup reader was being used to access the dBASE newsgroup.
There was an almost unanimous recommendatio for Thunderbird.
I mentioned at that time that in 2017, I had tried to use it and I found it unusable.
I've tried again and I still can't upload my messages to the this newsgroup.
Reading messages with thunderbird is the most cumbersome thing I've tried to do.
You choose a message, Double Click on it and the message opens in a 2nd tab covering the message list.
The only way to read the next message is to close the 2nd tab with the X and double click on the next message.
I've found no place anywhere to go to another message withoug double click, read a message, close the 2nd tab, double click a message.
I have searched the Mozilla website, the help file and googled the web and I can't find instructions on how to set up and use the software.
This is the problem I had in 2017 when I tried to use Thunderbird.
If I want to either answer or enter a new message, I have to write the message in notepad on my computer,
access the newsgroup through the dbase.com, and manually copy and paste my message in the newsgroup.
SO I'VE BEEN DOING IT THIS WAS FOR 5 YEARS.
I either need to find detail instructions on setting up Thunderbird that even an imbasile can follow or find another program to use.
