Hi, I'm using Thunderbird 68.8.0 (32-bit) on Windows 10. My work account is based off gmail. I tried switching to the dark theme- but it seems the emails themselves still appear in a white background with the dark text. Tested for plain text mails, calendar invites as well.

Does anyone know of a workaround to get a true dark mode on actual emails as well? Thanks !

The update to 78 happened automatically this morning. In the recent past, I have successfully sent a simple email to myself (in the To: field) and to a list, named Covid team 2020, containing 30 addresses in the Bcc: field. After update, I can't send this item. But it is then located in my Sent folder, which is in itself a nuisance as I expected to find it in Drafts. I've had two different error messages, one reporting that Btinternet.com wouldn't accept the item but I think I resolved that by resorting to Control Panel and troubleshooting my connection. The other was more curious, please see added image. I appear to be able to open the message and forward it to (only) me, so I conclude that the content is not the cause of the problem. In earlier years, I have had a problem posting to a large list so that I split the large list into four smaller ones, the largest of which contained 40 addresses. So my 30 this time ought not to cause the problem, unless 78 has changed the list size condition. People seem to be having problems with TB 78 so am I or is a problem of my own making?

I've been trying to resolve this now for four hours ...

This morning I open my laptop and there's no Thunderbird. Icon is missing and a search of the hard drive comes up empty. A truly WTF moment. I Googled this phenomenon and ended up downloading and reinstalling Thunderbird. All email folders and email returned (thank god).

The lighting Calendar now only shows events from one of five I had enabled with the others all saying "The provider for this calendar could not be found. This often happens if you have disabled or uninstalled certain addons.

The location shows the URL (e.g., googleapi://...) and an email address, but the Enable This Calendar check box is greyed out.

All I did was the forced-to-update reinstall of Thunderbird.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

Hi;

Have Thunderbird v78.0.1 (32bit). Tried importing items, (EML format), from Windows Live Mail v2011 Build 15.4.

Used Thunderbird's built in Import Tool. Kept getting: "Can't find other e-mail programs" even though Live Mail is still installed.

Downloaded importexporttools_ng-4.1.0-tb.xpi AND importexporttools-3.3.2-sm+tb(1).xpi. Both show "Not for v78.0.1".

Would someone kindly point me in the right direction so that I can Import Windows Live Mail Accounts & E-Mails into Thunderbird v78.0.1 (32bit)?

Thank You.

Andy

I downloaded and installed Thunderbird for my Mac a few hours ago. I successfully set up all email accounts, and for the two smaller accounts, all folders showed up as expected.

However, the larger account is missing many folders. I see a couple of subfolders that appear in grey, italicized text, but no movement in the past 2+ hours. Some don't appear at all.

What is my next step?

My google maps is unable to access my location even though I have allowed location access from Firefox preferences/settings. The blue target button (Current Location) on Google maps is greyed out, and when I hover over it it says that access is not allowed. Even though when I'm in google maps, the Address bar shows that my location access is allowed, as well as in the Firefox settings. I have refreshed the window multiple times, restarted Firefox, cleared all cookies, and restarted my computer. I've also toggled the enhanced tracking protection in the address bar to off, restarted the browser, still not working. Everything in the settings tells me that access is allowed, yet google maps still tells me that it is denied. Has anyone had this problem, or know of a workaround or how to fix this? Thanks! (Working on Firefox 75. with a MAC)

Hello! I'm writing this post because my previous post after a long time is still unsolved: please see at https://support.mozilla.org/it/questions/1246436.

As described:

  • Each time I save/close a draft message, a new updated copy of the message is created in the local Draft folder, but the old one isn't deleted.
  • AutoSave do the same

Steps done:

  • removed all IMAP accounts.
  • verified that draft settings point correctly into "Other" Global Account Draft folder.
  • restarted TB in safe mode and tested again.
  • repaired the Draft folder with right click > repair
  • tried to rebuild Draft folder.

Regarding last step done, I tried to rebuild Draft folder from the Local Folders. This didn't work because if I:

  • first close TB,
  • remove Draft and Draft.MSF files and
  • restart TB,

TB itself does NOT recreate the Draft folder as expected; and each time I save a draft I receive an error asking to use a new local-draft folder because Draft folder is having an issue.

Please also note I already read this KB/thread:

without any success. :(

Regarding the last question (#1282944) I didn't find any Drafts and Drafts.msf files into 'Mail' folder - 'pop mail account name folder'.

Thank you so much helping me to solve this very annoying problem I'm experiencing since years! ilNebbioso

I cannot access Mozilla via Firefox - issue arose when trying to access add-ons yesterday (25 Jan 2020). Firefox displays the following: "Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to addons.mozilla.org. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem."

In order to post this, I have had to access the site via Chromium, which also noted a secure connection error. I have used a VPN add-on to secure the connection and access the site.

I assume this is an issue on the Mozilla server with an expired certificate?

Background: I have been a user of Thunderbird for many years, starting before it became open-source. I have been on Windows 10 since it first came out.

1. I have turned off everything I can find in T-bird that might designate a message as junk, but still many messages that are OBVIOUSLY not junk are immediately placed in the junk folder. For example: messages from my wife, some of my own messges, messages from businesses (even my bank) that I have daily interaxtions with. Thus, every session with T-bird I must first go to the junk folder and evaluate each "new" so-called junk message and mark most of them as non-junk. Then I go back to the input folder, run my filters (none of which will call any of these questionable messages "junk",) and find that several of them have been put back in the junk folder. I "un-junk" them again, and then go to the inbox, where I must run each individual filter to place each such message in the appropriate folder. This is a tremendous waste of time, and it never happened until the last few months.

The filter at the top of my filter list (the first one to be run) is supposed to mark ALL incoming messages as "non-junk," but that does not seem to help.

2. With one of the recent "updates" it became impossible to scroll, minimize, maximize, or shrink the contents of any filter while editing it. I have ten filters that have many more specs in them than can fit on one screen. The "edit" window for a filter looks like a standard Windows window, with an X in the upper right corner to clode it, but without the icons for shrinking, maximizing, or minimizing the window, and no scroll bar to permit scrolling through the filter's conditions. That means that a filter now is limited to about a dozen conditions, and there is no way I can make changes to those ten large filters (I cannot get down to the "Save" or "Exit" buttons. This limit is not mentioned in any documentation that I can find.

3. In just the last couple of days while running my filters I have been getting warnings that "The --- folder cannot be found, so messages cannot be moved to it." In every case, I have had no difficulty finding the folder mentioned, and every filter referring to it has it listed correctly.

4. Very recently, whenever I start Thunderbird, and sometimes when I delete a message, I get an annoying message offering to remove all deleted messages from my hard drive automatically whenever one is deleted. The only choices are "Yes" and "No." I do NOT want Thunderbird to delete messages, because I cannot trust Thunderbird to determine junk messages in any rational way. THERE SHOULD BE AN OPTION TO TURN OFF THAT ANNOYING MESSAGE PERMANENTLY.

5. A minor annoyance is the recent unnanounced change in the way a new message is addressed. Once I accidentally stumbled on how the new systemt worked, I could deal with it. However, any change in the way a user interface is to be used should be accompanied by a brief note to all users about how to use the new interface. I should NOT have to read all the tedious detail in the change log every couple of days to find out what new trick you have decided to play. I don't see ANY advantage to the one-line for addresses over the old multi-line address procedure.

I have gotten to the point where I am for the first time ever starting to look at alternatives to Thunderbird. I will try to stay with Thunderbird for a few more months to see if you can fix some of these issues. Migrating to another email client is surely going to be a significant challenge, but I am getting close to the point of needing to.

This is on a win 7 64bit computer. using thunderbird 32 bit, current version, 68.6, for some reason I don't know. I have two primary mailbox trees, a work and a personal. The work email inbox is blank, but all messages are there, and can be seen in the message window when highlighted. The column titles above the message list are also blank. if I switch to the draft folder, or sent, junk or trash, the column titles then message in this boxes can be seen in the list. I tried compacting then repairing to no effect. 1243 messages are in this inbox, and it is only 292 MB in size. Any clue about how I can see the messages?
