Hello,

I've started using Thunderbird with my new ProtonMail account, because it's very useful for dealing with large numbers of emails.

However, something odd has happened. Some emails are showing as having been received very recently, despite them arriving in my inbox about 6-8 years ago. It isn't all emails, just a few (unless there are more that don't stand out so conspicuously - there are about 80k of them lol). And as you'll see in the screenshots, it's not like the date isn't recognised. It has the original date there, somewhere, but it still messes up.

Also, it's fine when I use the PM website to check my emails. It's just in Thunderbird.

I'll attach some screenshots to show you what I mean.

Thanks

Firefox used to give the option to open a file without saving. Now it saves everything to my downloads folder with no option to just open. (I am aware Firefox used to save the opened files in temp). This causes major clutter in my downloads folder and big disruptions to my work flow. Sometimes I just want to view the file and not save it to my working folder (downloads).

Is there a workaround to save to opened files in temp and the saved files to download?

Does Firefox give 2 different "save to" options? One option for a location to save downloaded files and one option for a location to save opened files?

How to migrate gmail-folders to other imap provider without duplicating emails?

Dear community,

I have been using Thunderbird for many years and simply love it. (Now running v. 91.9.0, 64-bit for Mac-OS monterey v. 12.3.1).

After having used G-suite gmail with my own domain name for years as well, I am now forced to upgrade to a google business offering or take my domain name email somewhere else :-(

So I signed up for an alternative provider, and have copied a couple of folders to the new email-account using Thunderbird. This works like a charm, but what happens when I copy over the AllMail folder? I believe I will then duplicate all the emails copied from the folders?

Is there a smart way of migrating from gmail to another imap-provider using Thunderbird which will take into account google obscure way of labelling emails? Or is there another way of migrating away from gmail?

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks, Fred Gjoertz.

I am looking for suggestions/work flows for migrating existing Mac's from the standard firefox release to the ESR version. I am looking to manage these all under 1 update cycle. A couple of current problems:

  1. On a system with the standard version already installed, I can't find a way to upgrade to the ESR version without uninstalling first.
  2. Once I would do an uninstall and then an install of the new version, I am prompted that I have launched an older version of Firefox and that I must create a new profile. How can I do this without loosing all users bookmarks, extensions, etc?

Thanks!

I have two identical computers running Firefox on Windows 7. No serious issues for 3 years or longer.

Just recently, version 100 showed "Unknown Source" instead of the normal UAC authorization window which lists mozilla.org as the source.

The 100.0.1 update showed the same warning.

This only occurred on one of the computers. The other one does not show the warning.

Firefox worked fine after doing the downloads anyway, but the "Unknown Source" is not right and makes the user think security is being compromised.

I use to click on PDF files and they would open and not download to my download folder. Well now every time i click on a PDF file it downloads it. I have tried every option in settings/general/apps and they still download in a folder. So I thought I would try MS edge and it does the same thing. Is it not the browser and was it in a MS update? It has never done this before. I don't want all these PDF files downloaded!

I have used Eudora for years, about 20 or more. Now I find myself with a dilemma. A secure email program I signed up for must have ports assigned to incoming and outgoing servers. Alas, not possible with Eudora, but possible with Thunderbird.

However, after reading several of the threads of migrating to Thunderbird from Eudora, it appears to be problematic--new addons, missing mailboxes, etc. It's hard to tell whether that's the norm or the exception. One of the threads I read was https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1228297 "Migrate Eudora mail to Thunderbird mail", which suggests starting with Thunderbird 17.0. That thread is from 3-1/2 years ago. Is this still the best way to migrate? Or is one of the Thunderbird migration tools a better and safer option.

I have literally thousands of saved emails and dozens of separate mailboxes and I don't want to lose them.

Hi,

I looking to get Firefox to open up a PDF in the browser WITHOUT downloading the file. The reason for this is because I want to bookmark the PDF allowing access to an up-to-date version of a document.

I have selected the option to ask where to the save file in the settings. I have also set the application settings for PDF to 'always ask'. So, when I open the link, I get a window prompt asking me to select 1 of 3 options: view in Firefox, view in selected application, or save. I select view in Firefox and it still downloads and opens the file.

I definitely know Firefox used to open up PDFs AS links because I have some bookmarked. Any suggestions on why this is and how to fix would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I've been seeing suspicious .htm files appear in "downloads" when I hadn't requested any downloads. When I try to open the file, it always appears blank. Once I rebooted without deleting the file, and my system acted like it had a virus. I rebooted in Safe Mode and reverted to a restore point, then everything was fine. But I'm still seeing those suspicious files appearing, at least once per day. How do I stop them?
