I am struggling with Gmail and Yahoo mail account in TB these few days. I hit almost the same errors from both. I generated app password for Yahoo mail, and put it in when setting up new account. For connection security: SSL/TLS For authentication method: tried with Normal password, Encrypted password, and OAuth2 However, I am seeing the expected authentication window pop up when trying the OAuth2. For all three authentication method: errors are always the same --- unable to connect to your IMAP server. I've followed another instruction to change maximum number of server connections to cache into 1 or 10. Error messages were the same imap one. So, what should I do/try for next?

One day last week one of three of gmail accounts stopped working in Thunderbird; I can’t send or receive email. I have not changed anything that I know of in either Thunderbird or the Gmail account.

I just checked the email account using a Chrome based browser and it works fine (sends and receives). I have attached three screen shots. Two in Thunderbird and one in browser.

The one from the browser shows I have Thunderbird I have given access to Thunderbird to my gmail account. From the two in Thunderbird one for signing in and the other one with the error and a broken robot drawing is what I get when I select next on signing in.

New PC migrating from old PC with Firefox v. 125.0.1 and Thunderbird v. 115.10.1 email client

I've received my new PC and will be migrating from my old PC (Windows 10) to the new PC with Windows 11.

I use local folders in Thunderbird to keep various projects separate and more easy to manage. I have copied the current Thunderbird profile on to an external hard disk, I have found the location of the local folders and they reflect the structure in the Thunderbird screen I see. Thunderbird has been unstable for a few weeks so I would prefer a clean install but don't want to lose a lot of content that I still need.

1. Is there a way to copy over just the local folders, eg export them, rather than the whole profile? I deliberately haven't cleaned the server recently so that I can get back emails that still are in the in_tray but once they are in local folders they disappear from the Yahoo server. 2. Is there anything else significant I should be aware of before migrating? There is a backup on Mozilla but I prefer a clean install.

Thanks in advance,

Anne

For the last week, Thunderbird hasn't downloaded the mails from my Strato account. I can still send mails, and read the mails when I log in to Strato. Thunderbird still downloads the mails from my other accounts. It worked fine until now, so I suspect the problem is related either to an automatic Thunderbird update or an automatic Windows (10) update.

I'm attempting to install a plugin to my android device to test it with web-ext, but I'm getting the error `No Firefox packages were found on the selected Android device`. Running verbose, I found it running `adb shell pm list packages`, so I ran it myself, and got the next error `Shell does not have permission to access user 10`. I have to manually specify in the command to use user 0, but I am unable to do that with web-ext as far as I'm aware

I created a compressed (zip?) file from my prior computer. I have not been able to figure out how to get the data from that file onto my new computer. My primary need is for my tasks and events calendar. I have been able to access email accounts without referencing the compressed/zip file. When I insert the flash drive, a message pops up asking me to "insert the last disk of the multi volume set" I don't understand this request. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me

Hi there,

I'm curious if it's possible to configure Firefox on your own to make it a portable browser. Specifically, I want to disable data encryption and machine ID checks. I know that some chromium-based browsers allow you to do this through specific switches that turn these features off, resulting in a fully portable browser. While I'm aware of third-party applications that offer ready-made solutions, I prefer not to use them for security reasons. I'd like to prepare my own version of Firefox.

I understand some may have security concerns, but I know what I'm doing. The files will be stored on an AES256 encrypted drive. Could anyone share insights or guides on how to achieve this with Firefox? Thanks a lot

PS.For those who might suggest using synchronization, I assume that, similar to Chromium, Firefox can't sync all plugin settings, and for me, plugins are essential—without them, it's not really a browser.

I am setting up thunderbird on a new computer running Ubuntu 23.04. I can successfully connect to my gmail account in thunderbird but I cannot add a comcast gmail account. I get an error message

"Could not get OAuth2 details for hostname=imap.comcast.net"

I am using the correct username and password. I can connect to the comcast email account on this same computer through my web browser. I would like to be able to continue to use thunderbird for all my email accounts.

Can anybody tell me what to look at to resolve this problem?

I'm looking to migrate from IMAP Rackspace to Microsoft 365. At the moment, we are setup in Thunderbird but since Rackspace can only handle 25GB of emails and most of my users had to archive their emails locally through Thunderbird. Just checking tool that we can use to migrate the exported archive emails from MSF to PST file so it will be compatible with outlook once the migration is complete, or is there a better option rather than converting them.
