Hello, I have searched the internet for a solution to this, basically what is happening is I'll go about browsing, as you would. then I click on a link, maybe type in the website and it says "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site. We can’t connect to the server at (website) If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try: Try again later. Check your network connection. If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web." I did notice it's quite random, most websites work but every 1 in 10 I'd say I get this error, then I refresh the page and it loads.

I've changed my DNS, Removed my firewall, and reset my firefox and none of that worked, please help.

youtube video of it in action:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ioKKYKnrniQ

basically it just doesn't load then loads when I refresh it.

I have used Thunderbird for years! The TBird icon on my bottom toolbar disappeared 2+ weeks ago, and I replaced it. When I tap it, nothing opens. I have tried locating TBird with "Search," but the wheel spins and then stops with no results found. Was Thunderbird deleted? Is it on my hard drive? A non-active email account with important messages had been incorporated into my TBird email files, and I need to restore all the data from my TBird program. I am not tech savvy by any means, and want to avoid the $199 cost of the Geek Squad. Can someone please HELP ME restore my missing TBird and all my accounts that were held there?

Hi. So I have installed Firefox Nightly on my Windows laptop. The browser refuses to start up after restarting post update. I have already tried uninstalling and reinstalling the browser and even using a whole new profile to eliminate the obvious causes. The behaviour is not predictable. Sometimes it occurs after the first update post installation and sometimes later after 3-4 update cycles but it does happen for certain. If it is of importance, my laptop is locked down by my company's IT admin to prevent software installations. So when I have to install Nightly using the msi, he puts in his password. I am just wondering if that is what is messing with the Mozilla Maintenance Service trying to update the Nightly installation.

For days I was noticing that, after exiting sleep mode for at least a couple hours, Firefox would open up with the spinning wheel and would be completely frozen. Frequently I'd have to reboot and re-open in Safe Mode, because it wouldn't force quit. Then I'd disable the plugins when I had it open. But eventually I had to re-activate this plugin in order to stream content. I don't know 100% if this is causing the problem. Is anyone else having issues with this plugin and if so, is there a simple way to fix/debug?

My PC has just been updated (a forced Microsoft process) to Windows 10, meaning I can no longer send/receive emails in Microsoft Essentials Live Mail from my BT.com account. I have stored a lot of important emails in Live Mail (no longer on the server). Does Thunderbird run in Windows 10? Can I export email accounts from Live Mail to Thunderbird? Can I export the archived emails from Live Mail to Thunderbird?

Why is Firefox blocking Flickr and Tumblr without my permission.

I reinstalled Google Chrome as a proxy and then was able to login but a day later I was blocked again since Firefox is the default browser on my PC. Frustrating to say the least. Firefox does not have carte blanche authority to block sites without consulting these sites' customers first. The URL shield is grey and when I switch it off it has the line through it but still will not load.

Suggestions please?

Cannot Send Email from Two Newly Created Accounts

I just secured two email addresses from a well known internet domain registrar and web hosting company. These addresses are derived from a .com domain I had previously secured through them but which I have not yet activated online. This hosting company uses Microsoft Outlook as its email service.

I carefully followed the Thunderbird process I found online for setting up the two email addresses (accounts) on my 78.9.1 version. Actually, it was pretty easy, with Thunderbird presumably pulling up the necessary information based on the email addresses. To check functionality in both send and receive, I sent test emails from an old, longstanding email address to the two new ones and emails from the two new addresses to the old address.

The new addresses received the emails just fine, but the “send” tests didn’t work. I got this pop-up in both cases:

Log in to account “Office365 (Microsoft)” failed. Log in to server smtp.office365.com with username [xxxxx@xxxxxxxxxx.com] failed. Retry Enter New Password Cancel

In each case, I clicked the “Enter New Password” button and got this pop-up:

Password Required for Outgoing (SMTP) Server smtp.office365.com. Enter your password for [xxxxx@xxxxxxxxxx.com] on smtp.office365.com: [Field for entering password.] □ Use Password Manager to remember this password.

I carefully entered the account password for each and checked the box; neither worked. I tried over again, this time not checking the box; no luck. Trying this email-sending process twice more produced the same lack of success. I then closed Thunderbird, waited awhile, restarted it, and tried again. Same thing.

On a Microsoft site, I found that they recommend port 587, but in checking what was automatically assigned by Thunderbird in both cases, it was port 995. I changed both ports to 587, but it didn’t help, so I returned them to 995, which was identified as “default” anyway.

Also, I have had no Thunderbird upgrade recently.

I’d certainly appreciate some help. It’s probably obvious, and if so, I’ve missed it entirely.

Thank you.
