I have been using Thunderbird for years to access several @charter.net email addresses, lately administrated at Spectrum, which took over Charter. Everything was working normally until today. I can still receive emails, but when I send, I get an error message asking for a password: "password required for outgoing SMPT server" Manually entering a password in that error message box doesn't help. Spectrum support is not helpful beyond confirming that my email sends and receives normally as long as I access it on their website. Three clues: 1) Spectrum recently announced "new and improved" email. 2) One customer service person described my email addresses as "legacy". 3) My gmail address sends and receives just fine from Thunderbird as usual. Any insights appreciated! Thanks!

Starting from the app menu button ≡ or the main menu, choose Tools -> Developer Tools -> Error Console.

Copy the text given below and paste it into the Console.

If using version 78 or later, copy and paste the following text: openDialog("chrome://pippki/content/resetpassword.xhtml"

Click the Evaluate button.

If you do not see an 'Evaluate' button, press Return or Enter on your keyboard.

When prompted with the confirmation dialog box, click the Reset button.

The problem is that I don't see an "EVALUATE" button

This after I upgraded to the latest version of Thunderbird.

I'd like to suppress displaying message Subject in the folder contents pane. (I'm in vertical view and would like the message contents pane to be wider. To accomplish that I'm willing to sacrifice listing the Subject in the folder contents pane. Tbird doesn't list that as a column I can select or deselect. Any ideas?

The real goal is to make the folder contents pane narrower. But it seems to not allow me to make it any narower than it is. A9(I can widen it, but that doesn't help. Is there any any to change the minimum width Thunderbird has set for that pane?

I could extract the Firefox apk from my phone and sideload this onto my quest, but I don't understand why Mozilla don't make an apk available for direct download or make Firefox available via the Meta store. The latter I can understand as it's more time an effort, but I'm at a loss regarding the direct apk availability.

Does anyone know why this is only downloadable via Google Play?

Cheers

I understand the necessity of some Extensions / add-ons to "Access your data for all websites" and therefore i agree to that for some of them. So here's the question: Is it possible for the data collected by that ADDON to be transmitted over the internet to either the ADDON maker or any other unknown recipient? Or is it that they indeed are collected but stored and processed locally on my computer and never transmitted elsewhere?

Firefox seems to crash repeatedly and generates no crash reports, just freezes up my pc. It works in troubleshooting mode but even after refreshing, the problem persists. Surprisingly, it will consistently crash if I go to `about:support` (except in troubleshooting mode). Any help would be appreciated!

I was guided to use Thunderbird by my computer repair man when Outlook Express became unavailable to me. Gods, I miss good old Outlook Express; I could do anything I wanted with that.

'''When are you going to add Categories to Contacts? '''

It is the only feature holding me back. I use outlook for Windows and I am able to sort my contacts by categories. In addition, I use a syncing software called Companion Link/Deja Office which syncs those contacts with those categories on either my iPhone or Android. This allows me to focus on targeting specific people for either personal or business use. Your software has that feature for calendar items. Why not integrate that same feature for the contacts which has a higher degree of importance. I see that a multitude of people have asked for quite some time already even offering to donate money if implemented.

Thanks so much :-)

Since yesterday when Thunderbird updated, I either get an alert sound for new email all of the time (even when Thunderbird is closed and I don't want to be alerted) or none of the time, if I turn the sound off (meaning even when I have Thunderbird open, I get no sound alerting me of new email). How do I set it so that when the program is open, the alert sound works, but when the program is closed, the alert sound does not interrupt my other activities (like work video calls)? Thanks for any help with this.

Dear reciever. After years of using TB and what we do think is a productive mail-tool that works for the benefits we are looking for has worked. However, the last 115- constantly freezing and shuts down. This is very annoying. It freezes at some folders from the main email-client- as we have deleted older folders integrated with this. But the problems remains. . We have done everything in our knowledge of the program but still no approvement. . At this point we are using Outlook..would be grateful to have some answers and possible sollutions for this issue. . Thanks in advance and keep up the great work U are doing. :-)

Hi

Why does Thunderbird want all my personal information.......??

I'd be MORE THAN happy to make a donation to support you guys, but I am NOT happy about all the info I have to provide - and frankly I'm bot going to be bullied into giving info I don't want to. I donate to Wikipedia and they don't ask such intrusive questions - so why do you? You say that less than 2% of TB users donate - this PROBABLY the reason why they don't...!

And the fact that there is no direct link to ask somebody ask question about this subject, is really frustrating.

Thanks

Hello Community Please help me to start again with Firefox from scratch. Last Month I downloaded Thunderbird email app and set up with a new email account using mailfence. Now I find that my mailfence email address was only a free trial and I have to pay to continue to use. I now wish to set up with my original free email with gmail. I did uninstall the Thunderbird app and then installed from fresh. Unfortunately it still has the mailfence email remembered in the Thunderbird App. How so I start again from scratch using my gmail account instead of the mailfence account that has now expired? Thank you in anticipation of you help.
