A couple of days ago, the quick filter bar stopped working. Type anything in and nothing is filtered. It appears to have no action.

As an aside, I notice if you toggle view > toolbars > quick filter bar the quick filter search box does not appear and disappear (as it should). However, if you toggle it off and then restart thunderbird it does come back without the quick filter search box.

Any ideas?

I got Firefox 94.02 just some days ago, it changed from 94.01. Until the change all was in order, since I can`t dowload pics as JPEG or PNG anymore directly, but 94.02 forces me to donload as WEbP, which inconvenient. Can somebody offer help, or at least an idea how to fix this issue?

Google introduced 2-step verification on December, 08. My GMail itself is working properly now if used directly. I didn’t change my Gmail password. But most of the time, I use Gmail via Thunderbird. But after the 2-step change of Google-Gmail, I can't make contact with Thunderbird no more. Thunderbird seems to refuse my password that, as said, has not been changed. After two times 'cancel' I come into contact with the messages that did already did come in before the problem arose, but I don't get new posts. Nor can I send messages. Before, till the move of Google, my password and the access to Thunderbird worked fine. I get a fault message in very small characters that the application needs a password of its own and then https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/185833 .

What shoud I do?

I'm using Windows 11 and Thunderbird version 91.3.2. Several days ago I did a Windows update. When my computer rebooted following the update it was a MESS: Half of my desktop icons were gone; the ones that were (like Google Chrome and Thunderbird) left didn't work because they no longer contained my personal information. Chrome and Thunderbird thought I was opening them for the very first time. My laptop is recently purchased from Dell, and their tech support has helped restore things to as near normal as we can. However, I had 6 or 8 local folders I had created in T-bird to store relevant emails, but they are missing. Dell has been unable to get them restored, so I'm taking a long shot to see if anybody here can help me. Any suggestions/assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Can anybody cast a spell and solve this please? Thank you.

I use Thunderbird V91.4.0 (latest version) on Windows 10. One of my clients just moved to Microsoft 365. The client's support person first said Thunderbird won't work with Microsoft 365 because Thunderbird doesn't support TLS 1.2 (which is not true) and I should start using Outlook, which I don't want to do. Then he said I could only use Thunderbird if I use a paid addon called Exquilla. I am not using any addon now and I am using Thunderbird configured with MAPI for another client who has email hosted on GoDaddy, I think with Microsoft 365. Can Thunderbird not work with Microsoft 365 without this addon? It seems to me that working with Microsoft 365 would be included in the core functionality of Thunderbird. If not, does anyone know if there are plans to include this functionality in Thunderbird in the future?

I have Thunderbird 91.2.1 installed on two computers. The Address Book element is driven by an icloud account, which I use on my iphone, so far so good, no problems with synching etc. However I have created, on one of the computers, a number of lists which sit under the icloud Contacts. These lists do not appear on the second computer. Is there a way of synching the lists? All of the lists are made up exclusively of contacts contained in the ICloud Contacts

I have 3 email accounts on my Thunderbird program. One of them has stopped automatically downloading emails (set to check every 5 minutes) and does not download when clicking the "Get Messages" button up top. The only way to successfully check for new messages, is to close and restart the program. The settings are identical on all three accounts using the same email server.

I must log in to the WiFi network I use. When I start FireFox the first time, it brings up my login page, I click [Accept], and I'm online. After a while on, I get kicked off, and must log in again. (The non-internet, WiFi connection remains active; but I'm neither logged in nor online.) How do I re-initialize the automatic login function ("detectportal"?)?

Closing, and re-starting FireFox again doesn't work; it initially tries to go to my homepage instead... *but it can't*, because I'm not online. I can't go to the login page's displayed URL, for the same reason. I have to actually restart the computer, loosing whatever I'm doing, then start FireFox. Then, and only then, can I get it to go to the network login page so I can login and continue.

Is there a button, "about:thingie", or setting I can use to reinitialize the automatic login page search & display mechanism? Rebooting the whole computer is a xxxx.
