Newsgroups dbase.getting-started

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, and manually copy and paste my message in the newsgroup.


I either need to find detail instructions on setting up Thunderbird that even an imbasile can follow or find another program to use.
