Hi everyone,

Google seems to have a problem with the Thunderbird embedded browser.

I have seen this problem with Google's desire to over compensate for all the dummies in the world already so often, to this extend, it becomes really annoying.

I have added several Gmail accounts to my Thunderbird (always latest version) 102.1.0 at the moment. This went ok after I had the cookies on accepting.

But today I get the problem that Google has decided that the embedded browser in Thunderbird is outdated. So there is no way to verify or receive the OAuth2 token needed, to add another email account.

The login window appears, credentials can be entered but after entering the password and clicking the login button, it logs you actually in but redirects to a window that shows you a message your browser is outdated and no link on the page will work.

I have seen this in the search results only once with someone using stacks, but that is not my expertise and I have no idea on even how to copy the url from the embedded browser because it is simply not possible / selectable.

In detail: I do get a login confirmation on my phone while inserting the correct password, but instead of the adding of the email account into Thunderbird, Thunderbird hangs on verifying the password and the google window changes to a "browser is outdated" window, I am logged in however, but no link is working except log out, logging in again in the same window works but then after retrying to add the account, Thunderbird tells me the server is already existing and it will keep doing that until I close the (embedded) browser window where I am logged in.

I read in the stack post from someone else with this OAuth2.0 problem who had the same experience, that this is caused by the (thunderbird?) embedded browser window being explorer or old safari based.

Is Thunderbird (Mozilla) coming with an update to solve this, or is there a workaround for a button pusher like me??

Some string I can change in the config?? (with navigation instructions please).

Any help would be appreciated

After updating to Firefox 103, everything in the browser including web pages, are way too big. Oversized. What the heck happened? Why do they do this? On the tool bar with the address field, on the right, I have a zoom icon, etc., and they're all much bigger!

I could adjust zoom, but this is not right. It's all messed up!

Yes I went into Customize Tool bar - Density - and it was already set to "compact - not supported"

I went into about: config - browser.display.os-zoom-behavior - changed to zero. Nothing happened.

I went into the windows settings - display - set to 125% which it always was. Changing to 100% didn't do anything. Went into display - Make display bigger - and it's 160, where I always had it.

Not happening in Chrome or Windows. So it's Firefox.

I went to migrate Thunderbird to a new PC and discovered that the Tools>Export choice is missing from the drop-down menu. Attached is a screen capture. This is version 91.11.0.

Yes, I know I should be able to move the directory over from Windows Explorer, but it seems odd that this menu is missing. The Help Center article was just updated a couple weeks ago and shows the menu, so it wouldn't seem to be a deprecated feature: [[Export your Thunderbird Profile|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/thunderbird-export]]

Is this a bug that has somehow crept into this version or does this feature need to be enabled somewhere? I don't know how else to report this anomaly other than this forum.

Older version 91 works fine, but I can't roll back because of database conversion. Now I actually can't use Thunderbird because I can't read incoming mails.

Nothing major to report, but when I now send a message to 2 or more people, I get the following warning message

"The message contains multiple recipients" it then tells me to use mail merge etc.

In all previous versions I never received this error message and I have looked for a way to turn it off because quite often I am emailing or replying to several people, and it is just one extra mouseclick I don't need.

It still if you press okay and don't follow the instructions but it is just a warning message that's not needed in my opinion and should be able to be turned off.
