Hi, my desktop are mostly the same Firefox images and it's hard to find the one i want. I right click the icon and in properties i found a few images i could use. Is there a simple way to change some of them. I looked online and you have to down loads something, it didn't look easy. I hope I don't have to leave Firefox just to change my icons. Steve

An email from Heritage.org seems to have blocked other email being downloaded. Each time I click Get Messages I get a repeat of the Heritage email and message saying downloaded 1 of 272 emails. Will not load the other emails. I uninstalled Thunderbird and reinstalled but continues to do the same. My wife's different email in same account works fine. Thanks for any help.

I have been using Thunderbird for a long time with few problems which were easily solved. I have always been able to select some text, click <ctrlp> and get a simple dilog to select a printer which then prints my selection to the selected printer. Now I get print preview of the entire e-mail requesting a printer. The whole e-mail then goes to that printer. I tried preferences to find a way to direct to another source but couldn't find anything.

So one of my Thunderbird profiles stopped being able to send emails. Hit the send button and nothing happens. One of my accounts in same folder is greyed out.

I have tried reinstalling, cleaning up profile, rebuilding folders. Updating did not work and I think that may have broke it (versioun 91.2 x32)

Restarted with no add ons, checked language. Tried a different SMTP server, nothing works. No error at all. Windows 10 64

Since this last update, I can no longer send emails. So frustrating. I can receive all emails. When I attempt to send an email it does one of two things. 1. The Send button is in light gray, which means it is inactive. I press it anyway and it does not send. 2. The Send button is in black, but when I press to send email, it says there is nothing in the Subject box and will not send until I put something there. Of course, there IS something written in the Subject heading, but it does not acknowledge it. I've even tried deleting what is in the Subject heading and then retyping it in, but it still does not acknowledge it so it won't send my email.

So frustrating. Can't respond to any of my business associates for several days now.

I don't understand why I can receive emails but not send them.

Problem converting from POP3 to IMAP mail

To whom it may concern,

I'm trying to change access to my Gmail account from POP to IMAP per instructions at http://kb.mozillazine.org/Convert_a_POP_account_to_a_IMAP_account AND NOT SUCCEEDING.

In the past, although I used only POP3 mail, the Gmail server settings showed both POP and IMAP enabled. I don't understand why, but it worked for years. However in recent weeks POP download has become increasingly intermittent (usually zero) and despite a couple weeks' assistance from both the Thunderbird and Gmail user groups, no solution could be found. Since it would be convenient to be able to access mail via multiple devices, I'm willing to convert to IMAP to escape from this download problem, and store mail locally if needed on this Win 10 laptop as I did with POP.

As part of this effort I have disabled POP at the server, although Thunderbird still shows a POP download account.

But...

I am hung up at the step that says: Create the IMAP account using Tools -> Account Settings -> Account Actions -> Add Account

When I attempt to do this, two things happen: (1) A Google page appears, requesting that I log in to my Google account. But it doesn't accept my Gmail address. (2) Meanwhile the Thunderbird Account Setup page displays a notice: "Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password."

This makes no sense to me. POP is now disabled at the server, and IMAP is enabled. At some point during multiple loops through this process I managed to delete my Thunderbird POP3 server account, with the result that all my several hundred email folders disappeared. Fortunately I had backed up the Thunderbird profile prior to starting on what I mistakenly thought would be a reasonably straightforward process. That allowed me to restore my email to the Local Folders; it took a few hours but worked. From reading your articles it appears this makes them safe from server changes.

I have subsequently restored my Thunderbird POP3 incoming mail setting, but it really doesn't matter because the Gmail server won't download my mail.

It seems that the next challenge is finding a way to convert the Server setting in Thunderbird from POP to IMAP. I can't get past this issue where Google appears not to recognize my Gmail address, thus the IMAP server linkage can't be created. I am basically 100% certain that there is no problem with my Google/Gmail account. So I could definitely use some assistance. After several weeks now, having to read my email on the Gmail website is getting really old.

What is the difference between this Thunderbird e-mail (with the blue 'fish' and white envelope) and Turnkey mail that uses the same logo picture! I have used Turnkey mail for many years now and am very happy with it. Can you give me any good reasons why your Thunderbird e-mail is better? I can actually have about 4-5 email addresses with my current Turnkey mail--which is no longer so important to me, but I still like knowing I could use more than the 2 emails I'm currently using a lot. Please respond to: ... @turnkeymail.com (Mozilla Thunderbird ).

When attaching a pdf to an email to be sent I am not able to open it and check it is okay. This has happened only since upgrading to Thunderbird 91.2.0 (64-bit) last week. I use Nitro Pro as my preferred pdf reader and this is associated in control panel.

I always check pdf's prior to sending to make sure it is correct.

As soon as I click on the pdf attachment the Microsoft App Store saying that "the app you're trying to install isn't a Microsoft-verified app..................", however, I am able to open pdf's with NitroPro that are attached to emails that I receive without a problem.

The tab under Inspect Element -> Inspector -> The column right beneath filter styles column has this feature that suggests you some css properties. On my browser they get filled in more than once, endlessly I might say (without me pressing any button). This makes it very hard to add any css styles and I'd like to know how to stop this behaviour.

Greetings,

I just updated to Firefox 78.15.Oesr and now am unable to reorder my open windows. As a student, I may have several projects open at a given time, and like to have the project I am currently working on, next to the open Firefox window, for quick navigation between the browser and project. This option seems to have been disabled with the update. It is enough of a deal breaker that I may pursue reverting to the previous version of Firefox.

Also, the inability to delete bookmarks, and to close the bookmark window after selecting "show all bookmarks," remains a persistent frustration that I am surprised has not been addressed. With so many browser options available, these subtle annoyances are enough to prompt me to again shop around for alternatives, after being a Firefox devotee for over 10 years.

Thank you for your help, Josh Baker

I have used Firefox for years to log in to Fifth Third Bank. The last several months it has worked intermittently. The last 2 weeks it won't work at all. I have done all of the suggestions in Firefox help. Deleted cookies, Reset, Refreshed, etc. No success. I am able to log in using Chrome. The bank tells me that when I am using Firefox they do not see me trying to log in. They can see me immediately when I use Chrome. I am getting an error message number that is not helpful and an IP address that indicates it is tied to Comcast in my hometown. Help! I don't want to use Chrome!

had an old Earthlink email account become compromised so had to shut it down. Installed a new email address (non-Earthlink) in Thunderbird. Everything worked fine, had (2) email accounts showing the old email account and my new email account. The old email address continued to try to contact my compromised email address. So I decided to try to inactivate/remove it from the sidebar. I mistakenly ended up removing the email account and all of my old emails (that I was wanting to save/keep in Thunderbird). Is there a way to restore the deleted emails (Inbox / Sent / Trash) from the old (shut down) email account?

Hello. I foolishly today, a few hours ago, bought and installed mozilla vpn (1yr subscription). Once this was installed, it somehow screwed up my whole computer setup, and the consequences keep getting worse. I have spent several hours now trying to solve the accumulating issues, and it is getting worse. Of course, I uninstalled mozilla vpn, but that did not help. For example, my thunderbird client was no longer able to download my gmail mail, even though i was using the same password as was working ok on gmail. I put the question to the internet, and the recommendation was to uninstall thunderbird and install it again. which i foolishly did. the new thunderbird installation was balnk - all my e-mail accounts and data were no longer there! moreover, when I try to restart the accounts, thunderbird again rejects perfectly good passwords! This is a massive tragedy for me. please tell me what to do. can i recover my data?
