Thunderbird (Windows) shows option to sort mail by size, but it is greyed out so unable to sort this way. PFA image.

Can anyone explain how to make this work?

Thunderbird Info: Version 115.12.2 (64-bit)

Mail Server Info: (Gmail) Server Type: IMAP Mail Server Server Name: imap.gmail.com | Port: 993 Outgoing Server (SMTP): Google Mail - smtp.gmail.com (Default)

Synchoronisation and Storage settings: attached as image.

OS Info: Edition Windows 10 Home Single Language Version 22H2 Installed on ‎24-‎02-‎2021 OS build 19045.4651 Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.19060.1000.0


P.S. the purpose is to delete messages occupying the mailbox unnecessarily by going through them in the order of decreasing size. If there is another way to do this, that should also be fine.

I first mentioned this in r/Firefox, and was asked to re-post here.

My FF just updated to 127.0.1 even though I have "Check for updates but let you choose to install them" and told it to wait. This was on a Windows 11 box. Everything seemed fine, but then one of my tabs crashed. I selected the reload tab option, at which point it informed me it could not load the tab because a background update had happened and I was now required to restart Firefox.

I'm not certain what version of FF I was on, I believe it was either 126 or 126.0.1.

Now, to be completely fair, I cannot with 100% certainty say that I clicked on the update later option. That said, as I _did not want to update then_, and I have put off the update before, it seems unlikely I would have made the mistake, but I wasn't recording everything I did so I can't play it back and prove it. My initial reaction was to associate it with the tab crashing somehow, as everything was working as expected right up until that moment.

Thanks

Edge and Chrome directly open embedded government pages, such as https://www.nifc.gov and https://hazards.fema.gov/nri/map, that "Firefox Can't Open." "To protect your security," Firefox requires each to be opened in a new window. This is an incentive for users to switch to Edge or Chrome and stop using Firefox. All .gov pages should be safe to open even if they do not "utilize x-frame options or a content security policy to control whether other websites can embed them."

I got an email from Microsoft saying my Live.com or Outlook.com email accounts won't be supported in Thunderbird UNLESS I change the settings to OAuth2 in incoming and outgoing server settings.

I even REMOVED the email account and re-added it making sure it was OAuth2.

But for my live.com & outlook.com email accounts I continually get prompts for passwords from Thunderbird. Sometimes I can't even click the RED X at the upper right to shut the prompt down. I just happens over and over until I give it what it wants.

I am tempted to shut down all Microsoft email accounts and switch to Gmail.

I have Thunderbird version 115.12.2 (64-bit) I used Windows 11 23H2 build 22631.3810 Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22700.1020.0

Any idea how to stop these prompts?

I like Thunderbird much more than any other email program I have ever used, and would like to keep it

Since the latest firefox update, to clear history now, it has Clear site and download, saved form info, and searches all together now. There is no way to uncheck saved info and searches so that does not get cleared. Will there be a fix to this? There is no way to clear the history now without clearing the saved info and searches, which I do not want to do.
