I just switched from 32-bit to 64-bit Thunderbird v. 91.2.1 on Windows 7. The fonts on everything are painfully small, esp. in emails I'm reading & writing. Moreover, there's a setting in Tools > Preferences > General > Language & Appearance > Fonts & Colors, but it appears to do nothing. I've adjusted the font size setting between 12, 17, 34, etc. and there's no difference in any display elements. I've restarted Thunderbird between adjustments and still no difference.

Is this widget just inherently broken, or is it supposed to do something?

Thunderbird incorrectly parsing manual configuration username

Run Thunderbird for the first time and following the prompts for setting up an existing email address. Type in a user name (first last) and then an email address. The "Configure Manually..." button is activated and if pressed Thunderbird expands the dialog, and pasts the email address into the "username:" fields at no attempt to parse off the "@....com" part. For example, if I type in the email address "bbillard@somewhere.com" the username field gets "bbillard@somewhere.com" and not "bbillard". I'm assuming the username is not the same as the email address.

Is this a bug, a feature, or would Mozilla consider fixing this?

I have a new problem, don't normally have any. I received a spam email this morning, when I tried to create a new Message Filter to delete it and future emails, the drop box won't come down. I then tried to create one manually - zip zero zilch. Works on every other email, and I tried 10 already in my Trash, it will not appear for this email. I updated after this and it still doesn't work. Also ran my anti virus just in case - Any ideas

firefox doesn't work right on facebook and yahoo mail, while other browsers have no problem. It either operates extremely slowly or just doesn't function and freezes. On facebook many times areas show up blank and therefore non functional. Functions on yahoomail also at times just don't work. When I go to chrome or safari there is normal functioning. I did a refresh of firefox and it generally worked a bit faster but didn't improve the problems I just described. Also for your info I've spent a very very long time trying to find how to contact you. You really don't make it easy. I have been using firefox mainly for many years and prefer it to other browsers, but if it doesn't work properly are needed websites, then of course I will have to discontinue. I hope you can fix the problem. I have a macbook air, don't know how you can fix it if it's not a general problem. Hope you all do. Thanks. Samana Fisher

Good morning everyone.

Since the last update two days ago i am missing the white envelope tray symbol which shows me i have a new mail.

There is only a tiny red dot on the Thunderbird icon in the tray bar that shows me i have a new message which is way to tiny for me on a 15 inch notebook. I whish me the white envelope back to see that i have emails.

Is this a bug or intentional? Can i bring it back via about:config?

Many thanks for the answers.

Any suggestions?

I'm using Windows 10 with taskbar located at the top of screen (instead of default bottom). Before updating Thunderbird to version 91 (now i have 91.2.1 x64 release) i was receiving new email notifications in top right corner, near to system tray. Now I'm getting the same notifications in FIXED place - bottom right corner, which is frustrating! There is no option in setting to change that. The position of taskbar does not effect position of the notification, I've tried moving the taskbar.

Thunderbird 91.2.0 automatically updated (also updated from 32 to 64-bit).

The contact list in Write new email & the Address Book are blank and non responsive. However, the type ahead still correctly fills in information from the address books. I was able to copy all my addresses to a text file using the type ahead (a, then b, then c, ...). I cannot create a new contact, or new address book. Search in Contacts & Address Book returns nothing.

Everything else seems to work fine, except that I can't send email (nothing happens when I click send)

I restarted my WIN-10 computer - no change. I completely uninstalled Thunderbird, then downloaded and reinstalled - also no change.

Most of the time FF will autofil passwords on the phone for sites I've previously set up logins for on the laptop. However, it refuses to autofil, or even suggest, passwords for apps for the same companies, despite this feature being enabled in settings. For instance, I am offered autofil for Sainsburys as a browser page, but not the apps. Any ideas? Also, FF for android wont suggest passwords for new sites. I have to set up new accounts on the laptop first. Then FF for android will make the passwords available. Are these issues linked and how can I resolve them?

So here's how I fucked up. I did a clean install of Windows and forgot to backup the Firefox profile folder since frankly I didn't know it existed. The next fuck up was I forgot my Firefox password before I knew about the recovery key. I reset the password and then found out resetting it deletes the bookmarks for security reasons.

Now I'm wondering, is there any way the staff could find my old bookmarks? I know I did not only one but two fuck ups in a row but I'm still holding onto hope.

Thank you for response.

Typically, firefox will ask me first if I want to download a file before downloading it.

Earlier, I had downloaded a pdf (myfile.pdf). Later in the day, I realised the file got redownloaded automatically as myfile(1).pdf, myfile(1)(1).pdf, myfile(1)(1)(1).pdf and so on everytime I restarted firefox. However, I did not click on anything to approve the downloads or even open the download tab (apart from the first time); and in fact I'm fairly sure I had closed the download tab after the first time. Any possible reason why this happened?

(Interestingly, when I tried to replicate the issue by redownloading the file on my own, it gets saved as file(2).pdf instead.)

Hi,

I am trying to access the Lightning calendar addon. I have searched around and seen that possibly the Lightning calendar addin is included in the Thunderbird client download. Is that true?

When I have Thunderbird open if I go to Tools-->Add-ons and Themes then I go not see Lightning when I click either Recommendations or Extensions.

Do I have to download Lightning separately? Also I want to mention that I am on a private network so I would need to download the offline Lightning installer.
