Public key of someone else worked in TB68+Enigmail, but TB78 refuses to use it

I have sucessfully migreated from TB68+Eigmail to TB78.8.1 (64-Bit) running under Xubuntu 18.04.

Except for one counterpart, all keys could be migrated through the transitionla Enigmail plugin.

However, there is one public key, which TB refuses to use for encryption. Of course I don't know the intricacies if this particular key and how it was made. I can export it to a file *.public.asc and this file is 7,1kB big. When I want to write an email to a recipient, the first thing that happens on sending: "The message cannot be sent with end-to-end encryption because there are problems with the keys of the following recipients: ...".

The recipient has to deal with many others and of course has little inclination to distribute new public keys just because of me and fears decrypting problems with his other correspondence partners who continue to use his old key during the transition period which he fears to be quite long. I understand that. Unfortunately, the error message does not give the slightest hint as to what is wrong with the key in question in Thunderbird's sense. In any case, the key is still valid for years to come.

It is not offered for selection in the menu "Security OpenPGP message". However, if I click on one of the two buttons below it, TB knows the key related to the email address in question.

With the second option 'Search for new or updated key' TB also finds the key and I can also say that I have checked it and that the fingerprint is correct. But then I am returned to the "Security OpenPGP message", two dialogue windows before and with no key to select. I am caught in an endless loop of questions that do not help me.

Where can I see what condition this public key violates? Is there a URL where I can enter the text form of the key and it will tell mri why TB cannot cope with exactly this key. If I want to convince my correspondence partner to generate a new key pair, I must at least be able to tell him what is wrong with the one which he has given me before and which we used for quite some time!

BTW: If I have to send an unencrypted mail because I don't have no working public key I have to switch off encryption. But then I switch it off for all subsequent Emails. If I want to re-enable it, I have to send myself or someone else an encrypted email. That's not a very smart design decision in the UI! At least I expect a setting Always encrypt which possibly lets me change my mind for one particular email, but not for all subsequent ones!

Hi, there. I've been using FF ESR as my primary browser for over 3 years. However, I keep encountering update problem, which by clicking menu button and the pop-up update option. Then, the browser will update my 64-bit ESR into 32-bit ESR. I feel so confused and upset I have to update manually by downloading the whole new 64-bit version from official site even though a minor update. The latest version was 78.5 ESR 64-bit reinstalled along the OS on DEC. 2020, Now using 78.10 ESR 64-bit. Is there any solution for me to use pop-up update on menu option? Environment: Windows 7 ultimate SP1 64-bit Thanks!

I recently had to recover a drive using photorec that had (among other things) all my mail folders on it. Unfortunately, the software can't recover filenames or directory structure; it just recovers the files with numbers for names and the extension. When I do a locate on the directory where everything was recovered, I see a bunch of *.msf files in the subdirectories. Is there any other filetype I should be looking for, and it possible for Tbird to reassemble my mail folders from them?

We use the Guest User to login to checked out iPads to students. We are using Macbook Airs with the M1 chip. When trying to use Firefox I received the error message "you don't have permission to open the application". I received this message for Google also. So I uninstalled both apps under my admin login and reinstalled with the latest versions. I also updated the MB Air to the latest Big Sur version. Google was able to load without a problem. Firefox on the other hand will not load. It bounces once in the dock and then doesn't continue to load. I logged back in with my Admin user and changed the permissions to see if that worked and Firefox still won't load. So I tried to lower the Security setting for the MB Air and that also did not work for Firefox.

Any suggestions on what else to try?

Thanks in advance.

I updated my Firefox to version 88 as soon as it came out. Continued working and browsing as usual.

3 days in, browser won't connect > close and restart > error Firefox still running in background > wait for processes to close > re-open Firefox > "You've launched an older version of Firefox - please create a new profile / Exit"

Follow the instructions, setup my profile from scratch again, login to all my accounts and proceed to get back to work. Few hours later - Firefox notifies me a newer version is released and i need to update my browser.

Not too long after, Firefox is downgraded to 87 by itself and I repeat the same process over and over again.

I tried:

  • Full uninstall / clean re-install
  • Deleting all profiles and all Mozilla folders and reinstalling
  • Some fix that's supposed to allow me to use my ver.88 profile on ver.87

Something is making Firefox downgrade to 87 by itself - This happens while I am browsing/using Firefox and causes all connections to drop and the browser to Crash soon after.

Any thoughts?

Dear all,

on my McBook pro I had Thunderbird 78.8.1 installed. I saved my Mails per instruction onto my external disk. The saved directory looks like this: /Thunderbird/ImapMail /Thunderbird/ImapMail/imap.gmx.net /Thunderbird/ImapMail/imap.one.com /Thunderbird/Mail /Thunderbird/Mail/Local Folders /Thunderbird/Mail/pop3.web-1.de /Thunderbird/Mail/pop3.web-2.de /Thunderbird/Mail/pop3.web-3.de /Thunderbird/Mail/pop3.web.de

Then Apple reinstalled Big Sur from scratch. With a new user, I reinstalled Thunderbird -- this time I got V.78.9.0. I entered one of my three Mail-accounts as IMAP and closed Thunderbird. As per instruction, I copied the saved Thunderbird-data onto my internal hard disk into /Library/Thunderbird.

Actual results:

My stored mails from before the reinstallation are invisible. The other two Mail-accounts are invisible.

I added another one of my three Mail-accounts as POP3 and closed Thunderbird. As per instruction, I copied the saved Thunderbird-data onto my internal hard disk into /Library/Thunderbird.

My stored mails from before the reinstallation are still invisible. The other Mail-account is invisible.

Expected results:

I would like to access all my three Mail-accounts with the stored emails. At least I would like to get access to my stored Mail folders -- I can install the mail addresses newly, this is not my problem. After proceeding per instruction, I do not know why they are not accessible.

A very helpful person, Matt, showed me https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1315638#answer-1371097, where the same problem is solved. There it says:

  "Go to your backup and open whatever folder contains prefs.js."

In my backups is no prefs.js. To be exact, there is no prefs.js anywhere on my computer or on any of my backup disks. What can I do...? -- I can see my mails in the directory system. How can I access them?!

Thank you for your help in advance. N.

Sorry if this has been said, i haven't been able to find it using the words i know. First of all, i'm newbie in general so if anything is missing in the explanation just let me know. My computer uses Linux ( Ubuntu 17.10).

The problems are several and are connected, i believe. Some years ago, when updating the firefox browser throught the "official app store", the name of which i only know in catalan, "programari" and haven't been able to find the analogous name right now. The update was actually an installation of firefox quantum that duplicated my Firefox browsers ( at least in icons, i had both ) as i now had the updated one and the old one, which i simply stopped using. Several problems arose in using this format , for example when i try to open from terminal Jupyter lab i needed to have already open the quantum version, otherwise it would simply open it in the old browser and that was a problem for other things not interesting here maybe. There came a moment where this new so called quantum browser stopped working, i.e. it crashed in completly white screen, while not being able to close it, and, furthermore, without being able to uninstall it, again from this app store, as everytime i tried it the app store window would just show me that it was working ( i pressed uninstall and the "cercle around" dynamic icon showed), but no matter the time i left it to finish it never did/does. Now i'm trying to, again, update the OLD firefox browser i had because it is so old ( version 61 ) that many webs can't even be used ( Netflix for example). HOWEVER, i have to say that any of the official helps to download/update firefox has been of no use for the moment. That is, the "update firefox to latest release"( https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/update-firefox-latest-release) page assumes that the update will take place by just going to << Help->About firefox>>, but it doesn't; and the alternative method, using "Choose which Firefox Browser to download in your language" page ( https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release) downloads me a compressed file ( in concrete firefox-88.0.tar.bz2). What is the problem with this? i haven't found a single word saying what to do after this download... i'm a newbie i only see a whole bunch of archives and files within but i don't have the Icon to press( yes, there is the firefox executable program that if you press appears the browser, but how can i place, and use, this outside the file( when i move it outside it stops working)) and so be able to use access the browser without having to go all into the downloaded file?

I know this is extremely long and i apologize for it. Here in the following i'll simply summarize the questions mentioned in hope that someone has any answer: 1) Why Firefox quantum, installed from the official app store in Linux ( it is/was the only Firefox appearing there as if it was the older version), didn't update the last version i previously had and made instead a duplicated, conflicting sometimes with the older ( Jupyter lab problem mentioned ), version. 2) Why has this Quantum browser suddenly crashed in my computer and why i can't even un-install it. 3) What is to be done with the update-downloading compressed file ( coming from https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release ) as to end up with the nice-looking, usually found, firefox browser icon in the screen, instead of having to go inside the file to use it.

Many thanks to anyone being able to help this troubled-guy in his proces of not going back to google chrome and windows.

Hej,

Jag har följt alla stegen nedan och flyttat profilmappen. Jag får upp mail i inkorgen från ca två veckor tillbaka, tyvärr inte allt. Sedan saknas hela mappstrukturen med alla mail i. När jag går in i profilmappen på hårddisken ser jag att alla mappar finns där. Hur gör jag för att få upp dem synliga?

Kopiera alla dina Thunderbird e-postdata Du kan kopiera dina data till en ny dator (eller annan plats) genom att kopiera din profilmapp och sedan berätta för Thunderbird var du hittar din profilmapp. Hitta befintligt namn och plats för din profilmapp genom att välja "Hjälp > Felsökningsinformation" i Thunderbird meny. Sök sedan efter "Profilmapp" och klicka på knappen Öppna mapp. Detta visar sökvägen för namn som börjar med överordnade mappar och slutar med namnet på din profilmapp. Använd hjälpmedel i ditt operativsystem för att markera och kopiera den här profilmappen med innehållet till en ny dator eller annan ny plats (med ett nytt namn, om du vill). Var noga med att du inte kopierar en profilmapp medan Thunderbird körs och använder den mappen. Om du har en stor mängd e-postdata kan kopieringsprocessen ta lång tid. Berätta för Thunderbird var du hittar din profilmapp genom att använda Profil-appen. Till exempel, i Windows 10, a) Stäng Thunderbird, b) Högerklicka på Startikonen, c) Klicka på Kör, d) Skriv det här i rutan Öppna (utan citattecken): "thunderbird.exe -p", e) Klicka på OK I Profil-appen skapar du en ny Thunderbird-profil för din nya profilmapp: a) Klicka på knappen Skapa profil, b) Klicka på Nästa, c) Ange ett namn för din nya Thunderbird-profil (det behöver inte vara samma som namnet på din profilmapp), d) Klicka på knappen Välj mapp, e) Navigera till och välj den nya platsens profilmapp som ställdes in i steg 2, f) Klicka på Välj mapp, g) Klicka på Slutför
