Is there any way to sort the accounts to have a particular one displayed first.
I only need to move one and I used "Manually Sort Folders" on my old computer.
It won't work with this new version of Thunderbird (52.3.0). on my new computer.
Says not compatible.
I hate to delete and recreate accounts to sort them, but I may have to.
Any suggestions.

Go to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/manually-sort-folders/

This add-on will allow you to sort as you wish.

That says it works with Thunderbird 45.0 to 48.0a1....I'm using 52.3.0.
Won't install

Read the comments on the download site. Some folks have solved this.

Just found another site that has a download for an extension to sort folders and accounts and says "Works with Thunderbird 45.0 - 57.0." Haven't tried it as my accounts are already sorted the way I want them. Don't know whether this is an update of the previous extension (that worked so well for me) or a new one. If you try it, let us know how it worked.

Scroll about half-way down the page.
