I use Thunderbird to connect to my ISP ( Plusnet ) and since the upgrade to TB ver 78.10.0 a couple of days ago, when prompted, I have been unable to connect properly to the incoming mail server at Plusnet, mail.plus.net. TB says it is connected to the server, but I never get the password prompt, and eventually it times out and I am unable to read or download my emails through TB. I am using POPmail on Port 110 on mail.plus.net with no security set. I connect to the outgoing mail server fine and I can send emails from the laptop (running latest version of Windows 10). I have talked to Plusnet, and they have not been able to identify anything at their end. Are there any TB issues that you are aware of that could be causing this. My email is john@johnwelch.plus.net.

Regards John

I've used Thunderbird for a few years both on my desktop and laptop. Recently when opening the programme it gets stuck on the inbox of one of my accounts and I cannot move to any other window. I momentarily see a glimpse of the normal opening window with the listings down the left hand side, but that's all. I can find no way of moving away from this one fixed window. This is only happening on my desktop; the programme opens normally on my laptop.

I've tried uninstalling, turning off the pc, turning it back on and then re-installing, but this makes no difference.

Any advice would be most welcome

Ever since you last changed Preview, it takes FOREVER for the darn page to load (be seen in Preview) and then FOREVER more to print. Half the time my doc doesn't even show up the first time Preview loads and I have to repeat it. The only work-around I've found is to open my doc in Safari and then print - which is insane. What's wrong with Firefox??

Over the last 8 weeks or so, I have problems with Firefox displaying chess.com website. The problem is chess.com home page loads but the live play with 3D chess board page no longer displays the board fully (top edge cut off) & some other chess.com pages fail to load properly or fully (articles pages and opening analysis pages). I have cleared my browser history & tried reinstalling Firefox (& tried resetting my router) but with no effect. If I use an alternative browser chess.com site works fine & as a long time Firefox user I would prefer to continue with Firefox, but this issue means I will now access chess.com on an alternate browser! Any help gratefully received to help fix this, thanks, I look forward to a positive reply!

Hi all,

I installed the conversation add on. Didn't like it and removed it. I then flicked a few switches in the View menu (can't recall all the ones) including threaded view etc.

I then went to my inbox and it's got EVERY single email in my database showing there. It shows sent folder messages, other folder messages. Just SO many. It's crashing my system.

What setting can I change to stop this? I've restarted but it's taking forever to load as it tries to search the massive number of emails.

Any help would be great. I'm really falling behind in work.

Thanks so much

I had a crash on firefox, I easily fix lost sessions, when I got updates or crash that lose my active session.

When I try to retrieve my sessions by copying recovery.baklz4 or recovery.jsonlz4 both of them does not work. When clicking on restore previous session, firefox rezzes a few seconds, and then the restore session tab stays blank.

I tried: https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html but the website does not succesfully recovers my firefox session and the tab just crashes, I did manage to convert it to a JSON file.

I did some work on the JSON file myself, through regex and jq tool. I extracted the urls from it. I scrapped my json to make it lighter (I think the problem is from the size of my session), I scrapped the "image", "scp", json objects, trimming the size of the file, it's size was divided by almost 20.

Is there a way to recreate a sane jsonzl4 file? I have the data.

What seems weird is that backups from a few weeks is only around 20MB and by adding a few tabs, it went from 20MB to 80-90MB it's freaking huge.

Is there a way to fix this? recreate a json file and then encrypt it to jsonzl4? What can I scrape safely from my session?

I have been trying to fix this for hours, please help!

I am running 78.10.0 on Ubuntu 20.04.4. Several months ago, I found that I had a beta version of Tbird and downgraded to 78. Because of the change in address book format between 78 and beta, the address book in 78 was blank. I found mab file from an older version of Tbird and decided that it was sufficient to use to build a new address book in sqlite. I got that done. (Don't remember the exact process, but it seemed to work.)

Now I can read the address book, I can send messages from the address book, but if I compose a message and start to type a recipient name in the TO: field, Tbird doesn't check the address book. Nor does it add addresses for outgoing mail to the Collected Addresses book. Both of those actions have been set up in Preferences. Anyone know how to fix this?

In the active profile, the abook files are abook.mab.bak, abook.sqlite, abook.sqlite-wal.

AT&t/Yahoo email quit on me on April 22. All I get for every account is: "Sending of password for user ****@att.net did not succeed. Mail server inbound.att.net responded: Server error - Please try again later.

I can, however, log into "Currently, from AT&T|Yahoo! Mail", (also known as mail.yahoo.com), and my emails are there and everything is working just fine.

Stuff I've tried so far: 1. Chatting with AT&T. Chatted with 5 different service techs for an hour before "David-Supervisor" said "Thank you for waiting, I talked to our technical team and we are having system upgrade for email access using email app which Thunderbird is affected by the update. For now, you can access your email via browser while we are working on the 3rd party apps." "Me: How much longer until the system is up again?" "David-Supervisor: There is no ETR specific time yet, but you can try again tomorrow."

I've been trying for the past four "tomorrows" with no luck.

2. Tried switching from POP inbound.att.net, to IMAP imap.mail.yahoo.com 993 SSL. That doesn't work either.
