Hello. Is there any way to make SORT BY THREADING and EXPAND ALL THREADS defaults in Thunderbird for Mac? It is burdensome to change the settings every time when in a new session. Also, randomly, Thunderbird stops sorting by Threaded and Expand All Thread within an ongoing session. Thank you. /s

Some years ago I updated my Thunderbird program, and since then every email I receive is filled with strange and unwanted extra letters. when i switch the text encoding from unicode to western or vice versa, the email looks fine. but i have to do this with every single email. if i click off that mail, then come back to it, the text encoding is off again. if i change the general formatting to western, it wants me to change each mail to unicode. if i change the general formatting to unicode, it wants me to change each mail to western. i am not using a yahoo server. can someone help me? do i need to go back to an earlier version of thunderbird? i'm running mac os sierra - 10.12.6.

I'm using the Telstra App( Australian Phone company) to buy more pre-paid credit and when i click pay PayPal it gives me a pop up box that says "Select "window" in your toolbar to find log in to your PayPal account" and it opens FF but it just sits on my home page and doesn't open PayPal, it use to open the PayPal app, but i figured Telstra changed something in their app that now forces it to open my default browser. so i figured I'd try here and see if this message make any sense to anyone, I have google it but no results point to where to find the toolbar it talks about.

When I saved messages in Local Folders on my computer I did not know that they would delete when I removed them from the server. I had clicked "Don't delete any messages". I have done this with other mail clients to save messages and they stayed put! I trusted this stupid program and now some irreplacable messages appear to be gone. I'm very angry!! How do I get them back? Please Help!! I realize it is not your fault. Thank you for your help.

Every time I want to add a new version, I get an Incomplete error. At the same time, I have already filled in all the fields, added pictures. I checked everything everywhere, but I still get this error after adding a new version.

Could you write me in detail what is wrong and what needs to be changed?

When I print out an email from my Yahoo account and I am using Firefox, the print is tiny and unreadable. This just started happening. My emails print out fine from Yahoo when using Chrome. How can I get the print size back to normal when using Firefox? When I use Firefox and print a Word document it is fine.

For years after every Thunderbird update my pinned shortcut is changed to the blank paper icon and no longer works to launch Thunderbird. I can launch from the Start Menu and when it is started, it links (highlights) the broken pinned shortcut.

It appears that the program still links to the shortcut, but the shortcut no longer links to the program.

I have to delete the pinned shortcut and create a new one from the Start Menu every time and re-pin it.

Firefox has never had this problem.

                                            • RESOLVED******************

I found 27 shortcuts labeled Thunderbird (1) Thunderbird (2), etc.. in the pinned shortcuts folder;

%AppData%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar

I removed my current pinned shortcut and deleted all of the rest. Then I created a fresh one.

Hello, It seems yubikeys will be incompatible for use with Google Chrome 98 starting from February 2022 (Google has decided to deprecate and remove the U2F API on February 1, 2022). https://developer.chrome.com/blog/deps-rems-95/ We use yubikeys for some of our departments in the company as MFA for OKTA authentication. Do you know if Mozilla Firefox keeps supporting of using yubikeys for their web browser? We would like to switch from Chrome to Firefox then but we need to be sure that yubikeys will be supported by Firefox. Thanks in advance, Vadzim

I usually view websites in landscape. However, when switching between portrait and landscape, firefox seems to refresh the page. This is a problem between browsing sessions, where I just want to continue where I was at. I may be 1/2 way down a page, exit the browser, come back to it a couple of hours later.

The app will start in portrait and then change to landscape. During this process, the page refreshes twice and when it finishes reloading, I will be on a different position on the page and have to find my way back to where I was reading.

So... I want to force firefox in landscape mode to prevent this problem. However: 1. There seems to be no menu item to allow this. 2. A web search says this is available in about:config, but about:config seems to have been disabled a couple of years ago.

Can anyone help with how to force Firefox for Android in landscape?

After a recent upgrade of Thunderbird, I am getting the following message: "A unique identity matching the From address was not found. The message will be sent using the current From field and settings from identity ------------" In addition to no links being "live" in received messages that are in my Inbox, there are no longer options available to "reply" or "forward" etc.!

I haven't a CLUE how to troubleshoot this and have never had this problem before in the 3 years I've used Thunderbird?

I have had TBird for over 20 years and it has been mostly trouble free. My T/B supports five email accounts with the same ISP (Bigpond.com). They are all configured for POP operation and have the same server settings. Since Wednesday, one of the email accounts will not send, but returns this error.

Sending of message failed. The message could not be sent using Outgoing server (SMTP) smtp.telstra.com for an unknown reason. Please verify that your Outgoing server (SMTP) settings are correct and try again.

The smtp settings are the same as the other four working accounts. I can even use one of the other smtp account setting and I still get the same message. I have tried the alternative smtp ports (465 instead of 587) but it doesn't help.

I have many emails in this account and I would not like to lose them. So if there is a way that I can save all of the account folders off line , delete the account and then set it up again it might help. Any suggestions welcome !

I understand that there are few Thunderbird developers, and I appreciate what you do.

My suggestion is to add a handler for the Windows system wakeup from sleep message that would read messages (refresh inbox) when waking from sleep.

This would ensure that messages are read when waking up from sleep. Currently, it is necessary to click Get Messages as a manual separate step after waking a computer from sleep.

I would do it myself if I knew how to build Thunderbird and how to search and edit its source code, but unfortunately I do not have knowledge of these matters myself, nor the time to learn them.

Please.

Prior to 91.5.0 I could create an email, paste text and print, then cancel the email. No more. It was a great fast way to print screenshot grabs from Firefox since Thunderbird is always open. Saving as draft doesn't work.

Now I have to send an email to myself to print it.
