The main Quicktext window is blank, and the toolbar selections are no longer visible above the Message Compose Window.

I am using Thunderbird 56.0b3, Windows 10.

Previously I was able to use QuickText, but recently it is empty, all my texts are gone. If I try to create a new entry, and click save, it appears to be saved, but when I try to close the window, it says changes have not been saved, do you want to save? So I click on save, and when I try to click on close it says the same thing again. So I click on cancel. I can then go into a new message and use the quicktext I just created, but after restarting Thunderbird it is gone again.

Any ideas?

garycurtin, I have exactly the same problem. I believe the templates.xml file is not correctly recognized. I am not sure but this problem may have started after trying "daily" version of Thunderbird.

Paroparo. It is not the templates.xml that is the problem. If you create a templates.xml on TB 55 or earlier, then copy it over to TB 56, it will work just fine, so long as you don't try to edit any of the templates. This way you can still use the add-on (mostly).

The latest update to 57 broke it again. I downloaded the previous version from: https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/releases/56.0b4/win32/en-US/Thunderbird%20Setup%2056.0b4.exe and, once installed, quicktext works again. I'll not update Tbird until someone says this issue is fixed again.
