I would really appreciate if the Firefox Password Manager would time-out and ask me again the primary password every x minutes (lets say 10 minutes, better if configurable). I use Firefox in my home PC, I have two kids (11 and 13 years old) and they frequently use my Linux/Firefox session for their school necessities and leisure time. The problem is that often they end using my session and they have access to all my usn/pwd inside de Password Manger (Internet router configuration, Parental Control configuration, ecc.) My kids have their own Linux profiles and Chrome profiles for school but they usually get to use my own PC/web-browser sessions for practical reasons inside my family.

Thank you very much for your support. Hernan M. Vago

How can I get Thunderbird for Mac to access and use my native Apple contacts? When I go to Address Book, I see that one potential source is 'Mac OS X Address Book' but there's a message saying 'No contacts available'. I went into Apple System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy and clicked on Contacs on the left, but apparently Thunderbird has not requested access to my contacts. Thanks for any help.

I am being plagued by a spammer who spoofs the domain from which the mail shows to be sent. This spammer uses a very long (perhaps 64 characters) series of random letters for the domain, and every message has a different domain thus it's impossible to block the spam by blocking the sender because there are billions of permutations. I get 15 or 20 of these crap messages every day. They come approximately every hour. I have many, many hundreds of blocked addresses in my filter, but it's useless. They just keep coming.

I realize that I may lose a few valid messages, but I want to block any message where the sending domain is more than 50 characters. Is that possible? If not, is there an alternative solution?

 Thanks,
 John

Starting Thunderbird after a few days, I see none of my folders and in fact my entire email account. Instead I see "Local Folders" and below it "Trash" and "Outbox." There is no trace of any of my emails in any of my folders or in inbox. I would appreciate any help or insight about what has happened. I believe Thunderbird has updated (to 102.5.1 64-bit), but I am not sure.

I don't know why, but I suddenly have a 'pop-up' asking me to have Google store login passwords to various websites. I've removed and deleted or uninstalled every Google app and software that I can find from my PC as well as my laptop, and do not use the Google search engine, nor any Google applications, so how do I stop this, and how did it even get into Firefox? Trying to create as much of a separation as possible between me, my computers and Google (if that is even possible).

I use a MacBook Pro running OS Monterey and I've gotten the dreaded "Firefox is already open" message. Firefox isn't my primary browser but I do have tabs and bookmarks saved there. This has happened before, and last time I ended up following advice to delete my profile which wiped out my entire account (it was the only profile there, and I should have looked for an alternate solution because that clearly wasn't it).

I was very interested in switching from Chrome to Firefox permanently, but I'll be honest, I'm pretty frustrated that this keeps happening and putting my tabs/bookmarks/history/etc in jeopardy. If someone could provide a straightforward explanation as to how to fix this I would greatly appreciate it.

Btw, I already tried viewing FireFox in the activity monitor as I saw another site suggest and it wouldn't let me quit it (I saw it greyed out).

My wife and I have several microsoft accounts, with addresses using outlook.com, msn.com, hotmail.com, hotmail.co.uk. We have Thunderbird on three PCs, all build 102.xx. The SMTP servers are smtp-mail.outlook.com and smtp.outlook365.com.

After years of working fine, about 2 weeks ago all these accounts on all 3 machines stopped being able to send, but we can still receive.  

Other, non-microsoft accounts have no problems. I can also send using these accounts if I use a browser, or other client software such as Outlook or Mailbird. Attempting to send an email eventually gets something like: "Sending of the message failed. An error occurred while sending mail: Outgoing server (SMTP) error. The server responded: Timeut waiting for client input [LO2P265CA0304.GBRP265.PROD.OUTLOOK.COM]" I've tried pretty much everying I can find on the internet, including change the timeout, turning off the virus checker (AVG), and using a different IP address (by taking a PC to the local library). Changing the authentication to OAuth2 gets a mesage saying I can't use that with a personal email address. We much prefer Thunderbird and would like to keep using it.

Just got a new computer. Address books are not working (Win11 TBird 78.14.0) I have added multiple addresses and they are not showing up in my personal address books (even though it says they are saved). When I try to add it again it says edit (meaning they are supposedly there somewhere) but the number of addresses shows 0. I manually added an email and they are also no-shows. There are literally 8 addresses from the former computer but the address book doesn't work - because the addresses don't exist in my personal address book. Everything is empty and I'm not sure if the "added addresses" are going elsewhere or what.

When my email downloads it has always downloaded by date, i.e., all emails download together at the end of my list of emails. Two days ago my new emails just began to download randomly in my inbox. They're just scattered among all my collected emails in a very random fashion. I'm afraid this is going to cause me to not see some of my emails. I've scrolled through all of the tools/help options and can't figure out how to change back to the way I used to receive emails.
