Thunderbird stopped working with news server

    Up until a week or two ago I was able to read and post usenet articles
    on with Thunderbird. It still works with Xnews but
    not TB. TB does not download any new headers unless I tell it to
    download them all. If I come back later, I can't get just the new
    headers. It asks me if I want the last 500 or all. If I say 500 it goes
    out to the server for a few seconds and does nothing. The only way to
    get any new headers is by downloading all headers each time. Is anyone
    else having this problem? How do I fix it? I've tried reinstalling TB
    and that didn't help. I tried creating a new profile and migrating all
    my settings to the new profile. That didn't help either. I am beginning
    to think that either the news server or TB is not complying with
    something in the NNTP protocol. Please help.

    On some of the other newsgroups I'm on, it seems to be bubba causing
    the problems, and not TB. Some have been saying bubba added a
    news-sniffer -- similar to the browser sniffer, that detects whether
    you're using Moz/FF or IE.
