Thanks for ability to ask for help.

I accidentally erased some of my email addresses and passwords. Previously I recall being able to access Password Manager to easily enter new email addresses and new passwords. That was some time ago.

I've attempted to follow instructions "within" Thunderbird but on getting into Password Manager where there are now only three of my 4 o5 emails addresses left, I could not find a way to replace the lost addresses and password. It was so easy to do so some years ago. Older users may recall old advice about using multiple addresses where the one attracting scams could be annihilated. I'll be 86 in a fortnight!

Humble thanks in anticipation - I'm still using Windows 7 and think it's the latest or near latest Thunderbird

Some sites offer separate links for viewing and downloading. (I'm specifically interested in PDF files, but I think this question is more general.) I'm not sure how this distinction is communicated to Firefox—I'm guessing in the MIME type? But regardless of the mechanism, Firefox does not seem to offer any obvious settings that distinguish between the two cases. Are there ways to distinguish in less obvious places, such as about:config?

As a specific example: currently on a certain site when I click "View" the PDF is displayed in Firefox, and when I click "Download" the PDF is both placed in my Downloads folder and displayed in Firefox. I would prefer that the "Download" link only cause the download, and not cause the display. How can I change this without breaking the "View" links?

A handful of mail subfolders have mysteriously converted to behave like DRAFTS folders. Their icons have changed from a folder to a doc page, the "folder" now sits atop the alphabetical listing instead of in the proper place within the alphabetical list of the subfolders, and all messages stored within now carry the designation "This is a draft message," even though all mail within these converted/perverted folders are copies of sent messages. I have made no changes to their properties leading up to these phantom conversions, nor have I made any changes to any mail account DRAFTS folders since I originally set up the various email accounts several years ago. These inadvertently converted folders are not listed as designated DRAFTS folders when I check the mailbox settings. But in the folder list, they have the same attributes as my designated DRAFTS folders. I double-checked to see if the phantom conversions can be sourced to my email accounts hosting platform but the folders are correct at that source. It seems to be a bug within Thunderbird. I wish it were simply a right-click/command-click on the folder to redesignate it as a storage folder...but I cannot diagnose the cause nor discern the solution.

Hi,

Message filters tool freezes.

1) I click on Tools\Message Filters. 2) TB shows the Message Filters dialog. 3) I select an existing filter. 4) I click on Edit.. 5) Message Filters dialog freezes. 6) I have to End Task Thunderbird from Task Manager.

I just upgraded to the latest TB: 102.7.0. Windows 10 with all latest updates. 1316 filters (yeah, I have a lot of filters.)

The freezing of the Message Filters dialog happened in the recent previous versions of TB.

I love TB and have been using it for many years. But, I'm getting a ton of emails these days and I dearly need to setup new filters and edit existing filters. I may need to consider moving to another email software app if I can't get the Message Filters to work.

Thanks, Ed

When clicking on a link to an .mp4 file, Firefox navigates to a builtin video player, streaming the remote video file. When Firefox is unable to stream or display a file (as is the case with .mkv or .txt for example), it is downloaded instead.

I simply want .mp4 files to be downloaded when I navigate to them. I tried setting `media.mp4.enabled` to `false`, and that worked, but it also disabled most embedded media players.

I've tried it with my iphone and another computer and it works. I've reinstalled Thunderrbird 102.7.0 and made it my default email and still it won't open. Could it be a setup problem on Thunderbird or my computer?

Is there a way so that when I’m using private windows that the managed passwords will work? Even ever I’m in a private window I have to enter user ids and passwords for sites that I have the passwords saved. If I go to a normal window it works fine. This makes using private windows too annoying at times to even use.

This is a very recent issue for me. A couple of days ago "tel:" links stopped functioning. I click on a callable link and nothing happens. I checked default applications, and tel: isn't even listed there. The first time it happened there was a dialogue box asking me what application to use, but after that nothing opened at all. I build and monitor websites, so I'm constantly checking these links for functionality.

Hi! I have a problem with Thunderbird where it very frequently scrambles subsequent messages in a folder, so that when I click on an email I see the headers and/or content of another email either in addition or instead of the actual contents of the mail I clicked on.

Repair Folder fixes this. But at this point I'm using Repair Folder on a weekly basis.

I'd prefer if Thunderbird could keep things straight, so what do I do to, ahem, enable that feature. :)

These are the instructions Type about:config in the address bar and press Return. A warning page may appear. Click Accept the Risk and Continue to go to the about:config page. In the about:config page, search for the preference accessibility.force_disabled. Observe the Value column of the accessibility.force_disabled row.

       If it is set to 1 then do nothing.
       If it is set to 0, double-click on it to open an editing field, type 1, then click the blue check mark button or press the Enter key to complete the update.

Specifically this error message was just obtained on macOS Ventura 13.1 on my Intel based MacBook Pro using Firefox 109.0.1. It happens on all Windows machines I tried, on my iPad and iPhone.

I saw at least a million similar questions similar to this one, even more advices on how to address it - and no answer helps.

When using "send tab to device", the submenu previously showed all synced devices, in my case, more than 10 devices. Recently it only shows 4 devices and there is no way to access the other ones. Is this broken or is it a recent change? If so, can I revert the behavior with a preference?

Under "manage devices", I still see all of my synced devices, they just don't show up in the "send to device" submenu.
