I'm needing to transfer a fair amount of company email from POP accounts to Gmail for Business.

I understand the typical response is to add the gmail IMAP account to TB and copy the messages.

I've tested this feature and it works great. However I'm unsure of the exact mechanism used. Mainly, is this transportation between servers encrypted?

The gmail IMAP account is setup to use SSL/TLS, port 993 and authentication method is normal password.

Can someone confirm these emails will be protected in transit? Thank you in advance.

I've attached images of the problem I'm experiencing. Its like pixels are breaking/turning negative colors and it effects anything visible. I don't really understand what's causing this issue. It doesn't effect any other program on my computer/outside the firefox window, so I assume its a firefox issue. I've uninstalled/reinstalled the program with the refresh to hopefully fix the issue but it didn't work.

Since the latest firefox update, to clear history now, it has Clear site and download, saved form info, and searches all together now. There is no way to uncheck saved info and searches so that does not get cleared. Will there be a fix to this? There is no way to clear the history now without clearing the saved info and searches, which I do not want to do.

I am using Firefox nightly on Android. About two weeks ago I noticed that my toolbar got moved to the bottom after some update, while address bar is still at the top. I tried looking for it in settings but couldn't find anything about toolbar, that's weird since I was able to customize it a few years ago when I installed Firefox for the first time. So I looked it up on the internet and they say that it's in Settings/Customize/Toolbar, but in my browser settings instead of Toolbar there is Address bar settings. Has toolbar's settings been moved somewhere else? It looks like in previous versions it was under Customize section.

This is something I've never encountered, since I hardly ever go to the Sent folder except to look at something I sent. But this was a different task.

I've had a series of emails from a friend, that my wife wanted me to forward to her so she could see them. So I went to the Sent folder, and forwarded 3 of those emails to my wife. Then she told me she only got one so I went back to Sent and thought they would be at the top of the list, 1-2-3, but that was not what I found. Since those emails were each part of several different threads in the back and forth with my friend, it took me a long time to figure out which email to pick off and resend. I made sure I was sorting them by date, descending, but was bewildered that the listing had the ones I wanted embedded (see screenshot, with the ones I just sent highlighted in red)

So my question is, is there a setting where I could tell Tbird to sort strictly by send date?

I am using Windows 10 Home on an HP laptop. Some months ago, I began getting this error message when trying to start Thunderbird: Your Thunderbird profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible. I've been slogging along using my Gmail reader since then but I need my address books from TB for my business. I really need to get this fixed.

I've read all the questions/replies on this and have uninstalled and reinstalled TB. My Appdata/Roaming/TB file only has 5 files in it: Crash Reports, Pending Pings and Profiles plus a couple of 1 KB config files. Don't know if this is right or not.

When I search the Profiles folder using .ini, I get this Notepad info:

[Install8216C80C92C4E828] Default=C:\Users\*\Documents\yvfr1fi4.default Locked=1

[Profile3] Name=thunderbird IsRelative=1 Path=Profiles/kavosmqu.thunderbird

I have this yvfr file on a thumb drive and I tried uploading that into the roaming/TB file but I still get the same error message.

Any help greatly appreciated! Thank you.

OK - I must be missing something. On my previous browser, Opera, if I wanted to see details of my passwords then I needed to put in the computer password, so keeping them quite secure. However, Firefox seems to let anyone using the browser to access the full details of all my passwords, even offering to copy them! This has to be the most insecure approach possible - surely this can't be correct, can it?
