Its 2020 man!

Why are we (Mozilla community) still missing content casting feature just like Google Chrome and other browsers. Even the new Microsoft Edge Chromium have that feature. I usually stream a lot of content and this feature, for me, is indispensable.

Furthermore, I am not asking for any workaround or extensions. There should be a native casting feature on Mozilla Firefox too just like other browsers.

Regards, VIVEK

I recently installed my OS and backup the entire profile folder of Firefox. When I put the key4 and logins file in to the fresh install there was only one password in it, the remaining passwords were gone. I also noticed that a new file (logins.json.corrupt) is created along with file(logins.json). I tried to paste the files again to fix it but same issue. I think the files are corrupt. Is there any way to fix it?

Apparently I had the "automatic update" enabled and have updated to v78.5.3 I am not able to send any emails along with my contacts not available when I type in the address field.

I actually just want to revert back to my previous 'working' version of TB - I believe it's v68. We've tried a few different things to get V78 to work and it has in terms of sending emails, however my folders, add ons, etc are a mess and I have a BUNCH of work I need to get done now. I will probably eventually upgrade however I really need to get back to the previous version.

Thank you

I have used Thunderbird for a very long time. Currently on my desktop it is no longer receiving messages. Also when I go to send an email I get the following message.

Your message was sent but a copy was not placed in your sent folder (Sent) due to network or file access errors. You can retry or save the message locally to Local Folders Sent-!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. (The exclamation points is where my email address would be)

The email goes out but it is not saved locally.

On my laptop Thunderbird works just fine receiving both emails and sending emails. No problems there. Both systems are configured the same with firewall and antivirus (ESET). Both Thunderbird programs are also set to the identical settings for both the security and server settings.

Anyone have any thoughts on what I need to do. I have never experienced this issue before.

I just created a new user and new mailbox. It works fine in the Comcast portal but not when I set up in Thunderbird. These are the settings that Comcast gave me to use:

IMAP protocol Incoming settings: imap.comcast.net / port 993 / SSL/TLS / Normal password / user name ****@comcast.net Outgoing settings: smtp.comcast.net / port 465 / SSL/TLS / Normal password / user name ***@comcast.net

It keeps telling me the password is wrong "Alert 1014" I know the password is correct. I use it to log into the Comcast portal and I have retyped it 4 times very carefully.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Several people I know have called me with the same problem, all in the afternoon of the 30th of november.

Thunderbird sends mail and gives error mail cannot be save in the sent folder, but does not receive mail, not from private imap server, hotmail nor gmail. (has done for at least the past 10 years)

Updated the 64 bit windows 10 to the latest version with no avail, also in safe mode, no go (with thunderbird 78 and 84b)

Could this be because of a security certificate running out of date?

More than 6 different pc have this problem all in the afternoon of the 30th of November and othe pc are still synchronising, question is why?

I started getting this error "Sending of password for user xxxx@sbcglobal.net did not succeed. Mail server inbound.att.net responded: server error - please try again later." on 11/17/20, when TB updated to version 78.5.0. I'm aware that ATT requires a secure mail key, and tried to update to that, but still no luck. Both incoming & outgoing servers are set to normal password authentication. I'm using the correct ATT Pop server settings. Deleted saved passwords, restarted TB, tried to re-enter the SMK, but keeping getting the same error message. I can access my mail through att.net, so that's working, but really want to keep using TB. Any help would be greatly appreciated. OS is Windows 10 Pro.

I have thunderbird 68.10.0 on a KDE desktop KUbuntu v 20.04. Using it for IMAP + SMTP on GMAIL.

The OAuth2 method work most of the time (about 70% of my attempts to read or send mail succeed), but this is hardly satisfactory!

Here is a typical episode (about once or twice a day on each of my computers):

1) Opened Thunderbird. 2) Waited for tbird connect to gmail imap server: "sending login information..." 3) After about 1-2 minutes I get an error message "authentication failure..."

Shutting down the program (tbird) a few times and restaring it often (not always) restores the GMAIL connection.

This has been going on for weeks ... Plz help

I have been using Lightening with TB for some time (with the Provider for Google Calendar add-on) but following the update of TB to 78 all the Google Calendar entries disappear from TB calendar. The Google calendar appears as still connected but the entries are not visible. The only way I can get them to show is to remove my Google calendar and then reconnect the calendar, but the entries disappear again when I restart TB. How do I correct this?

I am using TB 78.5.0 and Provider 78.0.1. I have only one other extension installed, FileLink Provider for Box v4, but that was installed after the problem started.

Thanks in advance.

I finally migrated from Eudora to Thunderbird and wish I had done so a long time ago.

I'm finding myself constantly closing out the app when all I want to do is to close the message I have open. I keep getting drawn to the upper right "X" rather than the message tab "X". I'm sure I will break this habit eventually but is there any other way to protect me from myself? Can each message open in its own window rather than stacking in the main window?

In the new 78.5 release, in the Message Pane, the ability to collapse the email address to/from/subject line is GONE! Is there anyway to collapse this very unnecessary information???? When you click on the message in the message list it shows who it is from already and the subject. And I DON'T need to know who it is too because it is to ME.

There used to be a small (+) and (-) sign on the far left of the email addresses. PLEASE PUT THIS BACK!

Being able to collapse this area gives you that much more space in the message pane to actually read the message!

Thanks.
