I couldn't even get on Google yesterday because the hackers are so smart or they just have a great device to hack accounts and I want you to send the hackers to prison ASAP. I already know that they are my at least 2 neighbors and 1 I rent to now and then the other hackers are staying so close to my garage that they can get into my spectrum wifi router and then they have broken into my garage and stole my passwords and then over $1,000.00 in cash and gold, etc. This is a brand new Gmail account now and they have probably seen the passwords already I would think!!!

I'm using Thunderbird v 91.10.0. SMTP set as per attachment. Still receive "Login to server imap.googlemail.com with username X failed." What else do I need to check? I've browsed a few online suggestions and everything seems to be correctly configured, but obviously something is missing. Please help!

My Thunderbird account passwords in "saved Passwords" are the same as my gmail passwords but Thunderbird startup fails every time with the following message

"Sending of password for user account.name@googlemail.com did not succeed. Mail server pop.googlemail.com responded: Username and password not accepted."

I have tried deleting the passwords and re-entering them and I have also tried deleting the entries in the saved password file but nothing seems to help. I have also tried deleting the logins.json, key4.db and cert9.db files.

I have lots of emails and subdirectories and don't want to do anything that might risk those.

HELP please!

Brgds.

Hi,

I used to use Thunderbird to access Gmail, Yahoo mail and normal email account (all POP3).

I have updated (not reinstall) Thunderbird to the latest version since Gmail disabled non secure apps access.

I have changed the Authentication to OAuth by follow the instruction from your page, but the system keep asking me to login (I have grant access in Gmail).

This happens not only Gmail as well as my Yahoo mail and normal POP3 account. I am sure the password is correct and still cannot get my emails from all of my accounts.

I also notice the token/password has not been saved to the system in Saved Password session. ( I have tried to run as administrator but still doesn't work.)

What have I missed? Can still using POP3 method to get email if problem solved?

My current system is Win7 with Thunderbird 32bit installed.

Thanks!!

The reason I am here is because I am worried about the insecurity on internet. I have been using it for years but now I realize every single person is vulnerable. I honestly did not know how easy they can steal your information from your computers, or any device you use to surf on the web. And that is not right. I think that situation has to change and if there is any way I could help to generate a change i am here.

2 days ago i could send messages. now I cant. I removed the smtp address like the help section told me to after getting the "Login to account "Google Mail" " dialog box and subsequent retrying of a good password had failed... I havent changed my password and am able to login directly to gmail no problem. thunderbird has the correct /same password but still the dialog box shows. I see the 0auth password ( also attached) but its too long to copy and paste so must be gernerated by google. I tried this after I got the send message error ( also attached) and tried what it said...

Also attached are the current saved logins etc minus the smtp I deleted.... The authentication method is set to 0Auth2.

what am I missing? thanks

I've been running TB38/linux for a long time and have many extensions and .css entries. In order to comply with gmail's upcoming OAuth2 requirement, I just installed TB91 and copied over the contents of my TB38 profile into the newly-created profile.

Imagine my disgust to find that none of my .css entries (mostly involving fonts not dealt with in the preferences) and most of my extensions and colors are inoperative. I've been tweaking TB since it was Netscape .9 and appearance and LEGIBILITY (Arial bold) is really important for something that I use for many hours per day. Quite frankly, I hate this new version. If I have to I will use it in order to avoid losing my SORTED email going back to 1995, but I'll do it resentfully.

It has been my experience that with each update I lose something of value to me -- hence my stop at V38. What is the oldest version of Thunderbird/linux that will satisfy gmail's OAuth2 requirement?

I'm sure I'm not the only one wondering...

Today I can not access my thunderbird email. Must be the Google issue, worked yesterday. I have updated to the latest 91.10.0 release and still have the issue. Appears the update that should have updated the settings for this google situation, did not apply. Followed the instructions for possible correction: changed the accept cookies to all copies and always. Do not see a Config Editor under the General Preferences. At least not an area labeled as such. Do not know the status of javascript within my system. Current passwords do not have the oauth preceding any password. What steps should I take to correct this issue and be able to retrieve my emaii? Could not find a phone number available to contact support on this matter. David Brunton

Google has disabled POP access in Thunderbird. Specifically they have removed the option to allow "Less Secure Apps" from downloading emails using POP access. They define "Less Secure" as apps requiring only a username and password. Currently (as of June 2022) Thunderbird can not download Gmail emails using POP.

Just FYI I will gladly give up Gmail and keep Thunderbird. I believe the only workaround is to have Gmail forward all emails to another, more friendly, email provider until I am able to convert all my contacts.

Thanks!

I'm unable to add any of my Gmail accounts into Thunderbird.

When I add a Gmail account, it goes through the process of logging in via OAuth2 using the default configuration, and I get the pop-up. I enter my email address and password, and it brings me to the Google screen where I approve of giving access to Thunderbird (this screen: https://www.google.ca/search?q=google+account+permissions+screen+thudnerbird&tbm=isch&ved=2ahUKEwjtpY2M7I_3AhXHg3IEHaaPCOkQ2-cCegQIABAA&oq=google+account+permissions+screen+thudnerbird&gs_lcp=CgNpbWcQA1CVA1jjDmDED2gAcAB4AYABgwGIAbcJkgEDNi42mAEAoAEBqgELZ3dzLXdpei1pbWfAAQE&sclient=img&ei=jiFWYu2mCceHytMPpp-iyA4&bih=754&biw=1600#imgrc=ZNXSyYRJ67bY4M).

When I hit Allow, the pop-up closes, and then Thunderbird comes back with "Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password."

I have no problem adding Gmail to other apps; it's only Thunderbird that is having this issue. I've already tried a fresh install on a fresh profile, but it continues to fail.

Hello, Few days ago I noticed that Firefox started complaining about self-signed certificate issues, although I added my CA certificate to authorities months ago. It worked without any problem, but now I'm unable to open any of my internal sites anymore.

I tried to open a random site in Chrome, but the same issue. So you immediately will say the is in the certificate, but wait. I have few VMs running on Virtualbox, so I decided to test in there. Guess what, no issues at all. I tried in Fedora 25 (the Firefox version is below 100), then tried Windows 100. Both worked. Then I decided to update FF to the latest version, guess what - it broke again =]]

So something has changed, but I really don't have a clue what causes the issue. I attach the screenshot of detailed CA view from Firefox.

i own a macbook and have recently switched from chrome to firefox- in my mac settings, it hasnt given firefox the permissions to use my microphone or camera. it doesnt show up the usual list to be able to allow the permissions. i've enabled microphone and camera permissions for the websites i want through firefox, but i cant even unmute myself. i think i need firefox to give me a popup and ask for microphone permissions, but it hasnt done that- and even if it did, i think it would show up in the list for allowing permissions through my mac settings (it shows applications that have requested for microphone access).

Many of the websites I access ask if I want them to remember my login info--username and password. For those that I trust, I indicate that I want them to remember this information, and for most I get an e-mail confirming that my device is registered. However, the next time I log in, I still have to go through the entire login. Is this a Firefox issue, and if so, how can I correct this?

I have noted from a web search that the subject of Javascript in Firefox (Android) has caused issues for some users of this browser.

I understand that JavaScript is now enabled by default in the standard version of Firefox (Android). It appears that once upon a time there was a config setting that could be tweaked to switch JavaScript on or off, but that setting may no longer work. Additionally, I also understand there are add-ons for the Android version of Firefox that can, amongst other things, apparently switch JavaScript on or off.

People here might be surprised to learn that the minimalist Firefox Focus (Android) browser already has a built-in, easily accessible, switch to turn JavaScript on or off:

Settings > Privacy & Security > Web Content > Block JavaScript

So, the point I would like to raise with Mozilla (but it seems to be impossible to contact them directly) is, if it is available in Firefox Focus (Android), why the heck is this switch not available in the mainstream, standard version of Firefox (Android)? It makes absolutely no sense not to have it, surely?

I would suggest that a good place to include a JavaScript switch would be in the 'Site permissions' section of Firefox (Android) settings. It is merely a suggestion as, for example, within the rather useful competitor Vivaldi (Android) browser there is such a switch located here:

Settings > WEB PAGES > Site settings > JavaScript

As for why there should be a JavaScript switch within Firefox (Android), that question is largely irrelevant. Mozilla have already seen a need to include it in Firefox Focus (Android), so what possible good reason could there be for not including it in Firefox (Android)? It mystifies me, and it's omission is an inconvenience too.

Does anyone here have a sensible answer to this question?
