Thunderbird email seems to send incomplete emails. If I am working on an email, if I check my "inbox" I find a partially completed email I am still composing has been sent before I finish it. How does this happen?

I have four email accounts in Thunderbird. The top one and default as listed in the Folders side panel is sdean@sdean.net. When, in FFx, I invoke Email Link from the File Menu, I end up with the second listed as the From address in the Tbird email composition window that pops up. How do I configure Tbird so that sdean.net gets used and is the default.

I'm having trouble in Thunderbird with scrolling through an open email window. Whether I've double clicked an email message to open in a new window or if I have an email up in the 3 way split screen (Folders/Message List/Selected Email Message), once I move off of the opened email I lose the right scroll bar. It doesn't reappear when I hover over the email scroll area or anywhere in the email message. The only way to get it back is by clicking to another email and then clicking back to that previous email or if I manually scrub through the email message and force it to scroll the scroll bar reappears. The scroll bar also doesn't stay up for very long after I've moved off the scroll bar. This also happens in the Preferences and Settings windows, basically any window that has scrolling anywhere in the program. Please advise. Thank you.

Not sure where this fits in so I started here. I have been running firefox for a very long time. For my home page, I am using Protopage. I have my google calendar as one of the widgets on the page. I have it set up correctly. It was showing up yesterday. Now today it is not showing. I am getting this error:

Firefox Can’t Open This Page

To protect your security, accounts.google.com will not allow Firefox to display the page if another site has embedded it. To see this page, you need to open it in a new window.

I have not made any changes to Protopage or Firefox.

Got any ideas what has changed? What I need to fix to get it working again?

I have been instructed by BCBSIL.com to use GoogleChrome as my browser. Their website is no longer compatible with Firefox. Is there an update that Firefox can do so I don't have to change my browser to Google Chrome? It seems BCBSIL is saying only Google Chrome users can access their site now. BCBSIL is trying to direct what browser I use, isn't this illegal?

I wanted to bump this as I never received a satisfactory answer for the reason behavior was changed and it is still something that feels like a UX regression.

Please enable users to filter messages on the content of Hyperlinks. Hyperlinks are some spammers and scammers weak spot. Here is a current example: One of dozens I recently received, all redirecting via "overfilights.page.link" I want to filter out any message with links back to "overfilights.page.link* HTML CODE EXAMPLE: <a href="https://overfilights.page.link/FhqJ" target="_blank"> (not sure if/how the html will display here) This request from others has remained unanswered in the past. As a retired web developer, perhaps someone could direct me to the Thunderbird Development message filter source code.

On this site: https://www.orange.pl/twojekonto/zaloguj I can't force firefox to remember username (no problem with remembering password on next step). In older Firefox without WebEx there was addon which allowed to manipulate forms to prepare proper autocompletion data. This addon is not supported with WebEx anymore due to lack of proper functions. Instead Firefox Dev Team claims that mechanism built in current Firefox is enough for such tasks and mentioned addons are not needed. Seems it is wrong thinking.

I tried different approaches to save username for mentioned site but without success.

I have had two Gmail accounts in Thunderbird forever. Both were connected at the same time, using the same imap settings and both have worked for years without issue. All of a sudden, one of my two accounts no longer wants to delete eMails. I get the following error:

► The current operation on 'Inbox' did not succeed. The mail server for account ********@gmail.com responded: [TRYCREATE] No folder [Gmail]/Bin (Failure) ◄

The *only* difference (and I've even checked all advanced settings) between the functioning one and the failing one is the one that fails has "Bin" and the functioning one has "Trash". When I go up to Gmail online I can delete the messages there without issue and they subsequently disappear from Thunderbird.

There doesn't seem to be any option to reset or change folder names. Obviously, Gmail suddenly decided to force the name "Trash" rather than "Bin" but Thunderbird doesn't allow me to change the name and there doesn't seem to be any "Refresh" function anywhere to fix this.

Hi One of my older laptops has v. 45 on a MacBook which has Snow Leopard 10.6.8

I recently changed web hosts keeping the same server settings except for the inbound and outbound setting. I notice in my profile mail directory that the name didn’t change to the new host. However all mail is there from the old and new host.

Is it safe to leave the directory name alone or should I set up a new mail account which would hopefully yield two directories?
