Hi, I have Thunderbird installed on a PC with over 8 years of emails saved. As that PC (lets call it A) has reached the end of its life a new PC (B) has been purchased. I would like to install Thunderbird on PC B and shift the HDD from PC A which has 8 years of email on it to the new machine. While all new email gets saved on the new SSD installed on PC B.

So when done I will use Thunderbird on PC B with all new mails accessed and available from the SSD of PC B and all old emails accessible from the old HDD of PC A which is now installed within PC B.

I hope this is possible! Please guide me on how to do this.

The intention being not to either loose data from PC A or immediately fill up PC B with old data.

Thanks Gautam

Hi team, I use web outlook as my general email client but have one specific folder I'd like to synchronise with Thunderbird so that I can use Thunderbird addons to activate rules on a linux machine. Any ideas how I can do that? I don't want to include INBOX and all my other folders, only one specific folder.

Many thanks in advance :-) Tony

When logging on to a website it used to be possible to show the current password that is automatically being input. That is no longer possible it seems so now you have to search the passwords for that website to locate it and then display it that way. But many times the current website is not saved under an obvious name. This makes it next to impossible to locate what used to be right in front of you (current website logon password). The worst is my current case where you lose your gmail password and try to locate it with a search of the passwords but since gmail address is the user name for 100's of websites there are 100's of results to try to find the gmail password. When it comes to Microsoft website there is zero results to Microsoft in the Firefox password search even though Firefox easily logs me in. Why did Firefox stop allowing the user to see the current password being input to websites. if they did not stop that access then I do not know how to do it anymore. Used to be a simple right click on the password field. Then you could go direct to the password manager location of that website.

Hello. I hope someone can help me. For the last 3 or 4 weeks the Walmart grocery site is not working right. For anyone familiar you know that there is a little heart you click on for your favorites, and on the right side of the page is your items currently in your shopping cart. Ok, neither of those is working in Firefox right now. It is working fine in Opera but not Firefox which is my preferred browser. (I was using Opera for a while and one of their updates caused the same issue, they saw it about a week later and it works there now.) I have attempted several restarts with addons disabled. As far as I can remember the only thing that I have changed in about:config was "browser.urlbar.update1" (that has been changed for a long time) ...I went in and changed it back but that made no difference. Does anyone have any ideas? I really dislike having to open a separate browser for 1 site. I have attached a picture showing what I am referring to. Thank you in advance Kathy

I did NOT enroll in any FF studies. Yet, moderator Cor-el said the app.normandy preferences will install new features and 'shield studies' anyways. I stopped downloading FF updates after v.84. I wanted to avoid the disastrous change to the print function that showed up on another computer. I spent hours trying to figure out what happened and how to get rid of of it. Nevertheless, Firefox installed this unwanted print 'update.' So my question is whether it is safe to turn off or delete all the app.normandy preferences in about:config ? Or do I only need to change the settings on a few? If so, which ones. What happens if I change these?

When I try to send email I get this, and I cannot send the email : "Login to server smtp.googlemail.com with username (my email username) failed. I can however receive email.

Everything was cool this morning, but the problem started later in the day. It asks me to reenter my password, but that does not solve the problem. I can send email from the Gmail app however.

My ISP is AT&T DSL. OS is Win10 Pro. I'm using Windows Security, will not work with firewalls on or off. Version of Thunderbird is 78.8.0 Last update was 02 March, and I was able to send after that update. I tried resetting the TLS to 1 from 3, and that didn't help.

Screenshot is attached. Please help!!!

I cannot use OpenPGP encryption on one of my email addresses, because its private key does not appear in the End-to-End encryption of the account setting. Exactly, I can have added the private key through the wizard of the account setting, but there is no private key in the End-to-End encryption of the account setting instead of the private key appearing in the OpenPGP key manager.

The other email accounts are OK, i.e. I can use OpenPGP encryption on the accounts. The differences from the troubled email account are followings: - The troubled email account uses Ed255 not ECDSA algorithm. - Name of the troubled email account includes UTF-8 Japanese characters. - The troubled email account also registers S/MIME private.

Please give me advice on this problem. Thanks.

I'm running Arch btw, with GNOME Shell 3.38.3 and Firefox 86.0 (64-bit).

If I have Firefox already open and I click on a link inside of another app, Firefox displays the following error message and the link fails to open.

Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile.

However, if I close Firefox and then click the link again, Firefox will correctly open the link.

Hi,

When I use inspect element, there's obviously the main HTML pane, and then the tabbed pane with CSS rules and the sort. When I pop out inspect element to its own window, it looks like the first image attached. However, dragging it and maximizing it on my second monitor makes it look like the second image. Obviously, this is less than ideal for this layout. As far as I'm aware, this is purely a responsive layout, with no user overrides (3-pane mode's docs only say "At narrower browser window widths, the tabs appear below the CSS Rules pane.) My question then, is if there is a way to override this? If so, I'm all ears, and if not, I do think that's something that should be considered.

Hello I have a few friends from China having trouble connecting to Mozilla hub rooms.

Here is the process of the issue: - Tries connecting with a VPN. - Stuck on loading screen with no response.

Their VPN is provided by the university as they are international students and are unable to go overseas due to border closure. Their VPN connection is stable and fast which shouldn't become an issue.

Are there any solutions? Thanks!

When I open Tbird (version 78.7.1) and go to Calendar page the calendars are all listed but the entries are not visible. I have to click on each to "hide" (though they are already hidden in effect) then click to unhide them and they instantly appear. I have looked at help pages for Tbird and "Provider for Google Calendar" (the add-on I am using) but cannot find anything that helps me. This has been a problem for 6 months or more and it has finally driven me to ask if anyone has a solution. The calendar entries used to be immediately visible when I opened Calendar. I thought it must have been a bug and would be fixed, but not so far for me. I attach a couple of screen shots if that helps. The first is just the opening calendar screen - no entries showing. The second is the page after I have clicked on each of three calendars – twice each– once to “hide” (even though I could not see it) then again to display. I have clicked on the calendar highlighted in blue once only and you can see it has the eye with a line through it to say it is not visible. Thank you in anticipation of your advice. I think Thunderbird is a great product - ideal for me nearly all of the time.

hello there and good evening:3 my husband and i are having this repetitive and extremely frequent bright yellow pop up with a robot that states "a webpage might be slowing down your browser." then the option to wait, or stop it. i've ran out of patience with this notification to the point to where even though i'de hate to, i would have no choice but to switch back to chrome just to stop being spammed by this pop up while im trying to relax. it happens more frequently on youtube and walmart.com, and i just want it to stop because it seems as if when it does show up, once it starts it never stops, and it actually slows down my webpage to the point of becoming unresponsive and stalling/crashing my only webpage open at the time. my husband has the same issue and we both use windows desktop. it only started appearing after the latest update. please, can someone help me make this thing go away? its very stressful and i cant browse in peace anymore on firefox. yes we have turned off all background processes, and we both have scowered settings troubleshooting for hours at a time to no avail, it just never stops and it behaving like a really bad bug.
