Created attachment 8519011 [details] Error-message&config-141107.pdf User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:32.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/32.0 Build ID: 20140923175406 Steps to reproduce: I have several e-mail accounts with one or more e-mail aliases (identies) configured. After Thunderbird updated to version 31.2.0 I realised that all settings concerning folders for sent emails, Archiv and draft folders for the e-mail identities except for the standard identy are gone. Actual results: When I tried to redo the configuration I got an error message: "TypeError: document.getElementById(...) is null. Expected results: I should have been able to reset the configuration.
Thank you for your report. The screenshot you attached helps whoever starts working on this bug. Could you please copy and paste here as a comment thta error message which is appearing on the Error Console. This would probably direct the developer to the point it broken.
Summary: Folder and Send configuration disappeared and can not be restored → Folder and Send configuration fields are empty
account/server/identity is defined in prefs.js as follows. (Edit prefs.js by Text Editor, or Tools/Options/Advanced/General, Config Editor) > mail.accountmanager.accounts = account1,account2,account3,account4, ... ,accountN > mail.account.account#.server = serverX > mail.server.serverX.??? > if mail directory : mail.server.serverX.directory-rel = [ProfD]Mail/Local Folders > mail.account.account#.identities = idP,idQ,idR, ..., idV (first one = default identity) > mail.identity.idR.??? > if drafts folder : mail.identity.idR.draft_folder = mailbox://nobody@Local%20Folders/Drafts Default identity is shown at both Account Settings/Copies&Folders and Manaage Identities/Edit/Copies&Folders Tab. Identities panel simply shows data in these mail.identity.idR.??? definitions. What is set for your identities in your prefs.js? UI is affected by Theme and add-on. IIRC, "Set Default" in identity definition(==change it to first one in mail.account.account#.identities) was suppirted from recent Tb release, so at least identity related something was changed in Tb recently. Some add-ons may not follow such change. Do you see your problem with Tb's -safe-mode? (add-on is disabled) Do you see your problem with Tb's standard Theme?

Dear Java Rueda, I copied an attachment with a screenshot of the error consol at the time the error last occured. Dear WADA, regarding your requests: I attached my prefs.js. The pop-mail-accounts are no longer used and might be ignored. The IMAP-accounts are the ones of interest. The error occurs with all of them. The problem does not occur in Tb's safe mode, but so far I could not found out which add-on might cause the problem. I know the approx. date (26 October) Before that date I did not experience any difficulties. I already tried to disable all add-ons which have been updated after that date - without success. I will go ahead with this search. I don't use any special theme, but the standard theme.
Dear all, It seems that I could resolve the problem. Deactivating the Add-on 'Auto save drafts folders 0.2.1' finally helped. I have also sent an incompatibility report to the developer of the add-on. Thank you very much for your help.
