Hello This morning I am having issues with Thunderbird giving me errors. It was fine yesterday. When I click on 'Help' I get an error, when I click on a link in an email I get an error. There have been a couple of other instances also but can't remember offhand.

Have attached a screenshot of one of the error messages.

Thanks for any help.

Hi Again. I just realized that my laptop updated the Windows OS while I was out yesterday. As a result, the default browser changed from Google Chrome to that Edge browser which I never use. As soon as I changed it back to GC, TBM is working fine.

Thank you so much for your help.

Before the problem, did you install another browser or change the default browser in W10 settings?

In Options/General/Files & Attachments, are there entries for http or https 'Content Type'? If there are, delete them and restart TB.
