Thunderbird plugin is active but the putton to tag as spam is not active (can't click)

BD 2017, spam enabled, the thunderbird tool bar shows, Spammers button is active and shows manually added spam emails, but the button for Is Spam or Add Spammer is NOT active.  This makes the plug in not very handy.  Forcing me to manually add an email.

Why is the Add Spammer / Is Spam buttons not active?
