I've just downloaded Thunderbird 78.4.0 as my previous email programme has died. I have used Mailwasher in the past to eliminate junk emails but there seems to be a problem working with Thunderbird. Emails download okay but do not clear on Mailwasher when downloaded. If I delete an email on Mailwasher it removes it from the Thunderbird in-box.

I am not a techie in any way so would appreciate any advice. Thanks.

At work I used Outlook installed on my Windows office PC (or it may have been on the network). When I retired I bought a personal Windows 7 PC to use at home and copied all my personal stuff onto it. I apparently exported a file from Outlook archiving all my emails, which I migrated to my PC - it is called (My Documents) \Outlook\Personal Folder.pst.msf (10Kb). It appears all to be there when looked at in a hex editor.

Thus I no longer have Outlook itself on the PC - can I import this archive file into Thunderbird 78.4.0 32 bit?

Thanks

I keep being prompted for a password when I open Thunderbird ...."Enter your password for cglass9@outlook.com on imap-mail.outlook.com:" but I don't recall ever setting up a password and don't know what it is. I am unable to access my e-mails via Thunderbird without entering a password.

Shortly before this problem arose on 22nd October, I received an e-mail from Microsoft advising that they had detected unusual activity on my account and they had blocked access to my inbox, contacts and calendar. I went through the process of changing my password with Microsoft and I can now access my e-mails through Outlook.com but not through Thunderbird. I'm not sure if the problem I had with Microsoft has caused the passsword prompt for Thunderbird to appear.

"Automatically mark messages as read" has suddenly stopped working after the update to TB 68.11.0 (64-bit). When i start TB in safe mode, it works fine. In normal mode, even if i manually disable all addons and restart, it just does not work anymore.

When i click on a bold message, it stays bold. I have to click on the green dot in the "read" column for it to be marked as "read".

I tried disabling and re-enabling all relevant settings in the "Options\Display" panel, without any luck.

My issue is the lack of a heads-up from Mozilla Thunderbird about the downside to upgrading (I use the term loosely) from 68 to 78. Where was the warning that the add-ons I was using would not work (and now, months later that there are STILL NO UPDATES to v78-compatible add-ons). I was not aware that there were profile and database changes that would occur making for problems for lots of users.

The forum is full of comments about these points so I'm not going to belabor with further feedback but I would like to emphasize that Thunderbird may very well have signed it's own obsolesence warrant for failing to take its customers base real needs into account. Fortunately for me a roll-back to 68 was easy since I had just done a full image backup.

I'm not really looking for "help" or a solution to a particular problem. But, respectfully, WTH were you thinking?

Yesterday (10/22/2020) I received an update from Thunderbird. Once it installed, I was suddenly no longer able to receive email. I kept getting "Authentication failure while connecting to server imap.gmail.server". I didn't change any settings after the update. I wish I could go back to the previous version.

I know I can access my emails through mail.google.com, but of course, Thunderbird is more efficient to use.

Thank you in advance for any help.

Immediately after updating TB to Version 78.4 my email accounts with Earthlink and Comcast ISP's stopped functioning (incoming and outgoing). I have used TB for over 5 years and been running IMAP on all my email accounts with previous versions of TB without any issues. After trying fixes found on support forums (i.e. changing config setting security.tls.version.min from 3 to 1) I was able to get my Comcast accounts working but not my Earthlink account (which is my primary account). After 1 1/2 hours with Earthlink Tech support, I was told I needed to reinstall TB with the previous version that worked. For me this is unacceptable. Why use a specific Email client if new versions do'nt work with my ISP's or I need to tweak config files. This should all be transparent to the user. Can anyone help me with fixing my problem. Thanks.

I just bought a Garmin smartwatch and signed up with them with my yahoo email address and synchronized the Garmin with my iPhone; now the emails I send via Thunderbird show the sender as Garmin instead of my name. Same thing with Fitbit: I bought my wife a Fitbit smartwatch, opened a account for her with Fitbit with her email address and synchronized it with her iPhone. Now her emails to me appear with the sender as Fitbit instead of her name. In both cases it changed the sender name retroactively ! So, no surprise to me now that I know but other folks must be wondering why Garmin or Fitbit is sending them emails. How do I correct that ? Thanks for your help.

hi all i'm having a problem with firefox browser, its not keeping my website logged in. This does not occur after i close my browser but after a few hours of log in, even if i leave the browser opened and come again back later.

I've been using firefox for ages now and never really had this issue. It has only starting happening only recently, since early this week or last week the most.

I've also manually cleared all cookies/log in etc and updated firefox to the latest version maybe it helps, but nothing changed.

Please note that I do not clear history/active log in etc neither it is set up to do it automatically when i close browser also i do not have any 3rd party apps that forbid cookies. I had a firefox addon before but disabled it maybe it was interfering, but it still didnt resolve the problem.

any help much appreciated as it is getting quite irritating. Thanks in advance Lee

Hi.

I am located in the UK and subscribe to BBC newsfeeds. I'm using Thunderbird 78.4.0 on Windows 10. News items come in regularly in the normal way, but a problem arises when I want to look at individual news items.

When I double-click on an item of interest, I am expecting the news item to open in a browser in a new Thunderbird tab as normal. However, this only works properly about one time in ten.

What usually happens when I double-click on an item of interest, is that Thunderbird does open the item in a new tab, but only very briefly. I see the proper news web page for a fraction of a second only, then the page is immediately blanked. The tab remains open, but blank, with the correct web page address present at the top. If I want to, I can click on the link and open it with a seperate (Edge) browser.

Any help to resolve this would be much appreciated.

Greetings Firefox Community,

I work from home as a warranty administrator for Mazda, Honda, Toyota and Volkswagen. They all seem to use either IE11 or Chrome as their online platform. When I use Firefox I can access all of the log in screens, however when I need to go to different pages Firefox does not allow me to go any further. I have no idea how to change the compatibility settings in Firefox. In IE11 I simply go to tools and then Comparability Settings and enter the page I need to access. In Chrome I can cross platform with no problem. I would rather stay with Firefox. Any suggestions will help.

Kind regards Gerry

After latest Windows 10 update (2004 or I don't know firefox is telling me I have Windows_NT 10.0 19041 so who knows) about month ago and after that Firefox keeps randomly crashing into desktop. It happens about 6-7 times in a hour! 95% of the time even crash report doesn't show up so I can't send my crash report to firefox. I have updated Firefox, downgraded it, disabled all add-ons I have tried that "media.wmf.vp9.enabled" trick and it doesn't work

What to do? I like firefox and I dont want to use Edge or Chrome. Is reinstalling Windows my only option?
