Why do they make it so complicated? Wouldn't it be easier if we are put 
on an editable screen where we can just move from field to field with 
the tab key or the arrow keys? and at the end submit or save?

I wish I knew the answer to that question. Over the years, I have come 
to the conclusion that desktops and their applications tend toward 
consistency, whereas text/terminal applications seem to thrive on 
inconsistency and trying to be as different as possible from one another.

I don't have chat on my Thunderbird, but I did change edit -> 
Preferences -> Chat -> when Thunderbird starts so that it now says Keep 
my chat accounts offline. I also disabled the Today Pane and the Message 
Pane in the view menu the first time I opened Thunderbird, although I no 
longer see any "Today Pane" setting in View -> Layout in Thunderbird 91, 
but I don't see it on my message window either.
