    For some reason each time I go to a newsgroups it shows there are
    messages there to read but when I click on the individual newsgroup the
    count disappears and there is nothing to read. I have marked the
    individual ng as read (mark all as read), but the next time I go there
    it again shows messages but again nothing there. Is there any other
    cure other than deleting the newsgroup and subscribing again? Thanks
    for any answers.

  2. Close TB, and navigate to the News subfolder in your profile folder.
    Find the msf file for the newsgroup and delete it. For example, the
    ..msf file for this group would be

    Open Thunderbird and go to the group. Headers will have to be
    redownloaded, but once its done, all should be as before.

    Thunderbird wasn't in that folder. However Firefox and Firebird were.
    Still, I did as instructed and it worked.
    Thanks to all.

  6. Thunderbird profiles live in their own folder in Application Data,
    rather then as a subfolder in the Mozilla folder.
