I am in the process of moving all of our passwords into 1Password. However, I discovered that my wife has her Firefox set to auto login, but can't remember her user name and password. So, although she can use it, she can't change update the password. The fact that on setup, auto login is the default makes this doubly frustrating. So, is there any way to get to the password?

I am getting the Mozilla Thunderbird Email wants to access your Google Account all the time while using TBM, I have removed the gmail account and the pop up does not show, so I know it is for the email account just removed. I re-add the email address and enter the email address and password and let it find the config itself. Click Done, and get the Mozilla Thunderbird Email wants to access your Google Account again, then click Allow and get the Authentication failure while connecting to server imap.gmail.com. message in the bottom left of my desktop. How can i get gmail to work again please.

Just recently upgraded to v115 (115.5.0)

I noticed that Edit->Undo will undo moved messages and stuff, but not deleted messages. So if you send a message to the trash and hit undo, it won't undo that. Instead, it will undo whatever you did before it (or won't undo anything if you haven't done anything else since opening TB).

Or is that just me?

How can I block the dropdown video miniplayer in Firefox 120.0.1 on Windows 11? It doesn't happen in MS Edge.

I've already set the following with no results:

media.autoplay.default = 5 media.autoplay.blocking_policy = 2 media.autoplay.allow-extension-background-pages = false media.autoplay.block-event.enabled = true media.block-autoplay-until-in-foreground = false

Is there a setting that I've missed? Can the miniplayer somehow be blocked using userContent.css? Can the miniplayer be totally removed from Firefox?

i don't want to turn off the "Account Setting -- Composition -- Automatically quote the original message when replying" setting because it's very useful most of the time.

How to i keep the original message from showing up after i delete all of it?

TB won't allow access to Gmail, Google Log-in screen (fake?) pops up and produces error message.

I have been accessing GMail from TB for some years and made the necessary security changes last year, when Google required them. TB is set up for Gmail exactly as prescribed in the GMail site. We are travelling and I am using Linux Mint (system info attached) with a Huawei 3G data router and WorldSim payg sim (We have had some issues with French sites that block us using these). Just recently, within the last week, instead of Thunderbird logging on to Gmail and downloading mail, a "Google" login screen appears (screenshot attached). It does this even if I log onto google and Gmail with firefox. If I click on "Next" an error screen appears (attached)

This has caused me to miss emails and be slow in responding because of not knowing how many unread emails I have. Is there a setting that can correct this or is it a bug? Thanks.

Hi! the last version of thunderbird (115.4.1 on Windows 10) don't remember the last mail selected when I change the folder. I try to explain better, for example if I go to the inbox and select one mail (for example the last mail received), if I go to another folder and then go back to the inbox folder the view is another one and I have to scroll down to find again the last mail received. I 've the same problem on my office computer so I think it's a problem common... This issue is come since I installed the Supernova versions.... Thanks!

ps this problem seems to be present only in the inbox folder if the last message received is in the bottom (mail from the oldest to the newest) If I change the sort with the colum date to have the last message in the top (mail from the newest to the oldest), the problem disappear

I have firefox set up so that it does not suggest anything except for my bookmarks.

So when I type in the address bar the only suggestions that come up are my bookmarks, no other suggestions.

For example when I need to translate something quick and want to go to the bookmarked page for google translate as soon as I type "trans..." it will suggest the link, Which is what I want and expect and is efficient.

But as has happened before, now I get a random suggestion coming up first so I have type more just to get to the same result otherwise I end up following a link to a suggested site which is at best aggravating.

I checked my seeting and there is one box ticked in the search suggestion settings that I cannot disable. I have tried and it always comes back.

How can I fix this?

Thanks in advance.

I'm on version 115.5.1, Windows 10. One of my small pet dogs was in my lap, resting its head near my keyboard. I was in Thunderbird, reading a message, when all of a sudden all of my messages in INBOX were suddenly deleted. I thought maybe exiting Thunderbird might bring them back. BAD IDEA!! Since I have empty Trash Bin on EXIT checked. Unfortunately that worked just fine.

I have a laptop that also is setup with the same IMAP accounts. I disabled the Internet connection on that computer, and the emails are still there as long as I don't connect to the internet. I tried copying all the files in the profile from the laptop to the desktop, but as soon as I launch Thunderbird, it sees that the inbox is empty, and removes (or basically updates) that inbox.

I tried export/import (export msgs from laptop, import to desktop) but maybe I don't fully understand the import process, because that doesn't seem to work for me.

One other option might be to make that account OFFLINE (so it doesn't connect anymore) change the name of that email account, and recreate the account.

I'm open to suggestions - there are 240 msgs in that INBOX that I need to keep for reference. (And I will no longer keep msgs in the INBOX, I'll move them to new folders!!)
