There already is a thread discussing the dialog box "Compact Folders". However this related to the purging of DELETED messages. It did not relate to messages which have been MOVED to a different folder for which the same dialog box appears. Could someone please tell me: 1 Why do I get the "Compact Folders" dialog when I MOVE a file. This should not change the disc storage requirement since presumably only the relevant entry in the file allocation table is changed not the 1.7GB suggested in the dialog - see attached image. 2 What would happen after MOVING a file if I pressed Proceed 3 This "feature" was not present in earlier versions of Thunderbird (there was "Compact" after a deletion) so what is the reason for including it in the newer one (78.9.1 (32-bit).

Thank you

This is probably a long shot, but here is my question: Is it possible to set up TB so that links are opened in a different FF profile depending on the TB account?

Here's my situation. I have two email addresses set up in TB -- a personal one and a work one. I also have two FF profiles -- again, personal and work. For both programs, the personal is default.

When I receive an email with a link in my work account and click on it, it opens in the personal profile in FF, since that is default. It would be great if there was some way to tie TB account and FF profiles, so links in personal emails open in my personal FF profile and links in the work account in the work profile.

Any way of setting this up?

It looks to me like Thunderbird has a bug when you want to send plain text email that on sending and receipt flows itself to the width of the window.

To send flowed text that flows on the sending site, you set (in the config editor):

mailnews.wrap_long_lines=true (don't mess with my outgoing emails; just let them go as long as they need) mailnews.wraplength=0 (don't have a specific line length; just wrap to the window length) plain_text_wrap_long_lines=true (wrapping is great, particularly in the client) mailnews.send_plaintext_flowed=true (regardless of what I send, the recipient should be able to rewrap it so it flows comfortably in their screen) mailnews.display.disable_format_flowed_support=false (don't disable flowed text; I like flowed text).

On sending this works great; it flows to the border of the window and wraps, reflowing as you change text without needing to hit ctrl-r or anything (since all the wrapping is virtual).

However, when you send this way, your email will be sent as one long line, and on receipt, thunderbird will display it as one long line, not reflowing it at all.

On the other hand, if you tweak this by changing one line:

mailnews.wraplength=78 (or whatever, pick a length)

Then while composing it will stick stubbornly to 78 lines (or whatever). However, on reciept, because of format=flowed, it will reflow your message to your window size and look great.

Obviously this is a bug. By documentation, mailnews.wraplength=-1 should disable flowing at all; length=0 should send whatever it sends but reflow on client side, which it doesn't -- at least in thunderbird.

Is there a workaround (also, is this a live bug?)

This is from thunderbird 78.9.1 (32 bit).

Hello, I have a user with a GMAIL account who accidentally deleted everything in her Archive while on her iPhone. We back up her computer nightly so I just grabbed a backup of her profile and restored it. 29000 emails reappeared like magic, except... as soon as the folders are opened and synced, the deleted emails are deleted again.

I have tried a new profile, a different version of both thunderbird and the import/export tool, export then import, full restore of the profile folder, all to no avail. Is there any way to make this stop?

Thanks!

Dear Support Team, since the update before the last it is no longer possible to jump back within a page or to a former page with the backspace key. This is, at least to me, very annoying. Aspecially when i am using my laptop. Personally i prefer using short cuts rather than the mouse or touchpad. Somehow i suppose that function was disabled through the updates. Would you please look in to this subject and enable that function again? I´d appreciate it very much.

Kind regards, Ilona aka Nellifer5

Hi!

It's quite a complicated problem so please bear with me.

1/ I set up my TB not to remember any password, so that I'd have to type them every time I open TB (nothing in the Password manager) 2/ I have both Yahoo and Hotmail email accounts 3/ Recently, Yahoo changed protocols (or whatnot) and began requiring OAuth2 authentication. I tried the trick where you change the password setting on TB to require a "Normal password" instead of OAuth2, but that doesn't work anymore. So I had to implement OAuth2 on Yahoo accounts. 4/ Now, I have problems with my Hotmail mailboxes: they keep asking for my password all the time even if TB has been launched a while ago. After some time, it's like TB is "disconnected" from these accounts and doesn't retrieve new mail. In order to check my accounts, I have to click on them, and type in my password again, which, kind of defeats the purpose of having TB in the first place.

Weirdly enough, this problem only occurred after I had to switch to OAuth2 authentication for my Yahoo! accounts, never before (not even when I could still trick my Yahoo! accounts to accept a normal password).

I tried deleting all the accounts then setting them up again on TB, on the old profile and on a brand new one, the problem is still there.

I don't want my passwords to be ever remembered by TB (even if I lost that battle with OAuth2), is there something I have to change (about:config maybe) so that TB works as usual?

Thanks for your time!
