Clicking on task linked to email does not open an email


I am using Ubuntu and Thunderbird, all updated. In my left panel there is Todoist, in right side regular emails. I am using 6 email accounts all IMAP. I am creating tasks related to different email accounts and different folders. Tasks are divided into projects. If I want to open email linked to task I am clicking on the task and nothing happens. I have to switch to email account and folder where this email is located in thunderbird to open email by clicking on task. So if I am in inbox and task is linked to email in outbox, it is not going to open. I have to select outbox first and than by clicking on task email will open. In case of some long lasting tasks I forget where was it and than I have to keep switching through all email accounts and all folders to finally open the task.

I checked also in Windows and it is working there almost corretly. Whatever is selected in thunderbird, email will be always opened after clicking on task. But when some email tab is active than clicking on another email task is not opening related email in second tab. Well, in WIndows it is not important, I just wanted to mention that.

Can you fix that in Ubuntu?
Thank you

Yes, though for now we don't know when that would happen. We're currently hiring a new Mozilla developer that could make such fixes so it may or may not take a while, unfortunately :-(
