I recently moved to a new Windows machine and can not send mail from either hotmail or gmail accounts. I am able to send and receive from my account at outlook.office.com, but hotmail uses outlook.office365.com as the mail server.

Thunderbird Version: 115.10.0 Windows 11 Version: 23H2

The message I receive when trying to send is: Sending of the message failed peer's certificate has an invalid signature the configuration related to smtp.gmail.com must be corrected (also for smtp.office365.com)

I did try all of the fixes advised here, as the error message certainly matched what I was seeing: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1295861 so my settings in TB are currently: security.tls.version.min = 1 security.tls.version.enable-deprecated = true

The final suggestion in the above thread was to move back to Thunderbird version 68.11.0, which I will try if nothing comes of this thread by the weekend.

This has been happening to me with recent updates of Firefox, and I am very close to dumping a browser that I have used for years because of it. I go to load pages and it just sits there and spins and spins. In the time I take to open another browser like Chrome and copy and paste the exact same links into Chrome, where the download of the web page is practically instant. I go back to Firefox and it is still spinning and it is just ridiculous. I have no clue what would be causing this. After it finally loads a page, it seems fine on subsequent loads of pages.

If I shut down thunderbird by mistake and restart it, my Gmail can't be read. There is a blue line at the bottom showing it is trying to do something, but it never finishes. I close every running program, reboot, and it works fine until I mistakingly shut it down again. I have several accounts and get hundreds of emails every day. I try to keep deleting them, empty trash, and compact folders. My Imap folders in my profile are huge. Many gigabytes. I plan to migrate to a new computer and don't want to move whatever is wrong to the new computer. This means I will have to start fresh, set up the accounts, fix the signature files, etc. Then I can export the address book and import them to the new computer. This will be very time consuming. Is there some way I can delete the saved emails from the profile file and copy the rest of the profile over?

Running TB 115.4.1 (64-bit), POP3 account, up until this morning everything was fine.

Now getting msg - "Unable to write the email to the mailbox. Make sure the file system allows you write privileges, and you have enough disk space to copy the mailbox."

Have more than 70 Gb free on my drive. Have tried: -deleting messages and compacting the inbox. -using TB's built-in repair folder utility. -deleting and re-creating the global-messages-db.sqlite file in my profile

Have logged into my email with my browser and can't find anything wrong with the account itself. Everything seems ok on that end.

Nothing has worked. Any other suggestions?

Anytime I attempt to send an email in the CCC ONE application, I get this error message from CCC ONE:

"Unable to perform selected action while the email application is open. Please close your email application and try again."

This error message persists whether I do have Thunderbird open or not. I also checked Task manager while I had Thunderbird closed and found no instance of it running. Is there any way that Thunderbird is running in the background? Or could it be if Thunderbird loads at start up that it's tricking CCC into thinking it's open all the time?

I contacted CCC ONE report and they advised me to attempt to change the name of a DLL file so a new one would be created to replace it. I tried that, the issue still persists. They also told me to try and uninstall and reinstall Thunderbird, which I did, and it still won't work.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Started getting error April 10. I have SSL/TLS and Oauth2 set for Thunderbird account server and smtp. Looked thru lots of web messages - no joy. Via web browser I can connect to my Yahoo email without issue. My gmail account on Thunderbird still works fine (with its unique third party password). I am on current Thunderbird release 115.9.0 (64 bit). I disabled the only add-on that Thunderbird was using. Windows 11 Pro which is up to date. Plenty of open disk space. Have rebooted my PC multiple times.

Hi

I've been having an issue logging into Gmail using Firefox. I've used both Gmail and Firefox for years and have never had a problem, but I now get stuck in an endless loop on the Gmail login page. I select my account, enter my password, then get sent back to the account selection page.

The problem seems to be relating to me trying to link two Gmail addresses so that mail from one is forwarded to the other. I set up one account this way without any issue, but when I went to do it with a different account, I got an error code. After that, I was logged out of Gmail in Firefox and haven't been able to log back in.

Things I've tried so far:

  • Using a different browser. I can log in without issues in Chrome.
  • Logging in with a different method. Neither my password nor my passkey work.
  • Logging in with a different Gmail account. All of my accounts seem to be stuck in this way.
  • Disabling all my extensions. This doesn't help.
  • Clearing Firefox's cache. No luck here.
  • Restarting Firefox and restarting my PC. Turning it off and on again doesn't fix it.
  • Contacting Google support. They said they think it's a browser issue as I don't have any problems using Chrome.
  • Using Firefox's private browsing mode. This does work and I can log in to Gmail. However, I don't know exactly what the problem is because I've disabled all my extensions and cleared the cache in regular browsing mode and still can't log in that way.

So I have a partial solution (using Firefox's private browsing mode) but it's not a long-term fix. What else can I try? Has anyone else seen this problem before and been able to fix it?

When I try to send an email from Thunderbird sometimes it succeeds and sometimes it does not. Trying again sometimes works and sometimes fails again. It may take many attempts to get a message to send.

The "Sending Message" dialog box gets replaced by a "Send Message Error" dialog box saying, "Sending of the message failed. The message could not be sent because the connection to Outgoing server (SMTP) smtp-mail.outlook.com timed out. Try again. OK"

Thunderbird version: 115.9.0

SMTP Server: Description: Office365 (Microsoft) Server Name: smtp-mail.outlook.com Port: 587 Connection security: STARTTLS Authentication method: OAuth2

Operating system: Windows 10.0.19045 Build 19045 ISP: BT Broadband Antivirus software: AVG AntiVirus Free 24.1.8821.822

Please advise on how I can get all my messages to be sent successfully first time. Thank you.

I have used Thunderbid for many years. Lately it is extremely slow displaying and deleting emails; and is not saving passwords. It is fast enough to display images once the email is on the screen. I have tried reindexing and have added T to Windows Firewall allowed. No other antivirus on the machine. The problem is the same for imap and pop accounts. My profile has been on a NAS for several years but the slowness is only recent. I don't have any add ons. A possible clue is that there are multiple email folders in the profile - see attached screenshot. Should I delete the -1 -2 -3 -4 folders - and the associated msf files? The profile as a whole is 869 MB - 2168 files in 142 folders. There is lots of space on the disc. There are a lot of -1 folders across the profile.

I only have 6 extensions and have disabled all of them and still have the problem. With Firefox in safe mode the problem goes away and I can see the comments. I've cleared the Firefox cache and hardware acceleration is off. I have the standard themes and using the default system theme-auto.

Any suggestions on how to resolve this problem? Thank you.

I have a very small Tablet computer and Thunderbird is really bogged down on it. The tablet has a 32 bit processor, 1G RAM, 64G SD drive. (1) When I run TB I get many "not responding" messages from Windows. (2) Maybe 1/2 the time, if I "delete" a message the screen will freeze on the message. The message is removed from the inbox list. I have to click "X" to get rid of that screen. (3) Get Messages no longer works. When I click it, nothing happens. The status bar at the bottom remains on the last information displayed. I found that if I use View, Folders, All, I can bump TB to get messages. (Normally I use Unified Folders) The status bar will display each of the accounts it is checking and any new messages will appear. These things have been happening through many many versions of TB. Although #3 seemed fixed a few weeks ago but has returned. Same for #2.

I looked at the disk space that TB is using and found that TB is using over 10GB. See attached. I don't know why it is so large. I don't need to store any messages on this computer. I have a desktop that is my "base station" where I want to save all (but deleted) messages.

I don't know if this large amount of TB space is contributing to the problem. Any help would be appreciated.

I have Thunderbird 115.9.0 64 bit on the 2nd latest version of Ubuntu Linux and by second latest I mean it is still supported even though there is a new version available. Several months ago there was a password problem with my internet account preventing me from logging into my internet/email service and all my devices could not send or recieve emails. I changed my password on my cell, my Windows 10 computers and they worked fine. My Thunderbird on my Ubuntu on the other hand rejected my password and I also checked all of my port and server settings with the help of my internet service provider tech support including comparing settings from other email clients. Still no password being accepted. My internet/email service provider tech agent suggested removing my account from my client and reentering it and this worked.

Several months later I changed my main email passwords again on incoming mail and outgoing mail servers on my account, verified my port settings are correct, which they were including the type of security and protocols used. When I select the desktop icon I get prompted to enter my main password and hit enter and the window keeps reoccurring as if it has rejected my password. I select cancel allowing me to enter and again clear and reenter password and again it is rejected. I removed my account (I think) and go through the motions of reinstalling my account and get a pop-up indicating the server already exists which puzzles me. Ports, security settings, password are all correct and tested on other devices. I can even use a browser and log onto my internet service providers server and access my account and my password works but not on my Thunderbird. Should I consider uninstalling and then reinstalling my Thunderbird on my Ubuntu? I think by mistake I deleted all of my emails BUT I have selected IMAP so my emails I want are still on my service providers server. IF I uninstall and reinstall how do I save my contact list. This I Inoticed is still intact. Suggestions please?

Automatically hide taskbar in desktop mode => Enabled Firefox => Maximised When cursor is moved to outer edge of screen, taskbar should unhide (Expected behaviour) but in this case it remain hidden (Reality). Firefox along with all other spinoffs give same result. Chromium based browser works perfect, and taskbar automatically unhide itself.

As OLED screen have became common as monitor, Taskbar auto-hide is must. If this issue cann't be fixed I may have to change my primary browser which I used for almost 15 years.

Kindly, look into it. If Chromium can do it, why not Firefox.
