I'm walking through the steps for changing my account from pop to imap.

when you click done and it asks you to log in to your google account, it gives me my account name, but when I hit next, it just clears it and nothing happens.

I don't see anything in the instructions on how to solve this.

Thank you.

So this issue just started and it's really annoying.

In order to actually see the downloads, I first have to enable the menu bar and then go Tools -> Downloads

Clicking the ↓ button should open a panel of recent downloads but nothing appears when I click on it. Furthermore, the "download complete" notification that this panel provides are no longer present.

The animation for the panel still works though.

Is there a solution to this?

Here's something I've never seen in more than 20 years of using Thunderbird. It's more of an aggravation than anything else, but I'm asking about it because I hope it's not a sign of something more serious:

I receive: "Sending of the message failed. The message could not be sent because the connection to Outgoing server (SMTP) smtp.office365.com timed out. Try again."

But the message does send. This happens mostly with my Hotmail account, but also sometimes with either of my two Gmail accounts.

This started after an update to Thunderbird; one of the v. 91 updates, I think. None of my settings changed and I've done nothing different to the Thunderbird settings in years. I'm running Thunderbird on Xubuntu 20.04, 64 bit, and the current Thunderbird is 91.9.0.

Any thoughts? And thanks for your help.

Hi

I don't know what's happened to cause this, but for the last few days if I grab a torrent file online, I only get the option to save the file, no option to automatically open in my torrent client.

I have been to Firefox general settings, and Applications - "Choose how Firefox handles the files you download from the web or the applications you use while browsing" but .torrent is not listed. When I search "torrent" in the Applications search box, I get only "magnet" as a result, nothing for "torrent" files (see image).

Any advice on how to automatically open .torrent files from the web in my torrent client would be appreciated.

When is Mozilla bringing back the "page" feature (or just a "print" command) so that users can print directly from the browser? This missing feature has been noted by countless support requests over the last two years. It's clearly something your user base wants. If Mozilla doesn't want its browser to go the way of Internet Explorer, it needs to listen to its customers.

After install, I cannot receive/sync my messages from yahoo, gmail, or other accounts. In trying to troubleshoot, under advanced server settings, I get the error message that the storage local directory is invalid. Your scripts automatically set the directory as /data/home/user/.thunderbird/....however the default directory cannot be edited in the window. When I browse for other directories, your application will not show hidden files, therefore I cannot select the directory which was already installed by thunderbird at /home/user/.thunderbird... This should be reported as a bug as there is no means to select the appropriate directory. It cannot be entered directly in the window and cannot be selected through your browse application. My OS is NomadBSD, on FreeBSD13-RC6.

Hi. On dictionary.com when I type in a word in the search bar and press enter, it works fine, but when I am on a definition page on dictionary.com (not the homepage) and I type a word in the search bar and press enter, it does not work. The page does not respond.

Also when I am on biblehub.com and I type in a reference (like Genesis 1:1) in the search bar at the top and press enter, I get directed to a blank page: https://biblemenus.com/topmain/send.php?q=undefined

In the search bar at the top of biblehub.com I must click the magnifying glass icon in order for it to work, which is annoying.

Note that a while ago (I don´t know how long ago) these things used to work correctly. I don´t know whether a Firefox update caused the problem or whether it was a change to the coding on the webpages. I am on the latest version of Firefox. Neither of these problems happen on Chrome.

Let me know what can be done to fix it. Thank you.

Some websites load greyed out. I've just bought a Mac Mini running Monterey (12.3.1) and downloaded Firefox, which says it is up to date with version 91.9. Soem websites, when accessed therough Google search, grey out as if wanting me to accept or reject cookies, but no such buttons show. Examples - Search gresham, offered gresham college in dropdown, click onit and it's greyed out and inactive. Example - search canon support, offered Canon Product Support in Google listing, click on this main heading, and webpage comes up greyed out. Both sites work satisfactorily in Safari. (I've resolved my problem with Canon). I'll be glad if you can help - I'd prefer to go back to Firefox by default.

I have read all the "solutions" to the above issue however the "solution" popups do not appear on my screen. For example, from the address, I can select multiple addresses in which to send emails. However when I select "Write", it puts them automatically into the "To" box. I want them in the "Bcc" box. I see where you can move them from the To to the Bcc but it won't let you select ALL of them, you have to move each one, one at a time.... ARRGGG. Why can't this simple issue be resolved? This was no problem with Windows Live Mail. One "solution" says I can select the contacts from my "address side bar" next to the email..... I have NO sidebar.

I have Thunderbird set up with several different email accounts. In December 2021, one of the email accounts suddenly stopped working. It won't receive or send emails. I didn't change anything.

I'm not knowledgeable about figuring this stuff out, so I'd be very grateful for some help. The email that's not working is a gmail account. At first I was getting an error message about the password not working. I'm positive I'm using the correct password, because I tried it on https://mail.google.com/ and it worked fine.

I have Windows 10. I updated Thunderbird to 91.8.0 (32-bit) and it didn't make any difference -- I still can't receive or send email from the problem account. I didn't change any server settings (they are the same as my other gmail accounts, except for the specific account names).

When I try to get messages, it says says Connected to pop.gmail.com...

then

connection to pop.gmail.com server timed out

I have no idea what this means or what to do. If you need more information about my settings, just let me know what you need and I'll get it.

Thanks for any help you can offer. At this point I'm desperate.

I am in the USA. Every time, on any page or website that I need to provide credit card info, when I click in the box to type in the CC numbers/expiration date/CCV, a window pops up as it should (for auto-fill) with my credit card information. In that window, I can scroll over the different credit cards, click on the one I want to use, and it SHOULD auto-fill into the box where the numbers would normally be typed in. Now, the window still pops up and I can scroll over the credit cards and choose one, but when I click on any of the particular credit cards, the auto-fill doesn't work. The boxes in "settings" are checked to allow auto-fill. It worked for months, then just stopped. Thanks for your assistance!
