I had to change my email. It got so I couldnt see what I had typed as the screen was unreliable and blocked by the keyboard frequently. My new email worked well for a week. Now it has relearned its old habits. Its unreliable, frequently blocking content on the screen, making the phone unusable for mail. I cant get the keyboard off the center of the screen. And it constantly reappears making use of the phone impossible. Everyone points a finger a someone else

The manufacturer of the phone blames my carrier who blames the software developer, who blames the updates and add ons. It has turned into a POS in one week. If I could find out who is responsible for this mess, I would gladly put a bullet in his or her head. Why cant I get the keyboard off my messages?

How do I disable the ANNOYING message box I get every time I want to send a message to the trash folder. Thunderbird keeps asking me if I want the message deleted to save disk space. This just started in the past week. I want my deleted messages to go to the trash folder and I will manage that folder. I can't seem to find anything in settings that lets me disable this option.

This is very weird, and Ellen could not remember her sign-in, so she is going to post on my account. Here she is:

I have a very old Mac computer. Don't laugh, it's a G4, and it still worked ok until we changed our outgoing mail server. Remember Robert had some issues with his server change as well? His is working fine. For years, after we changed from Optimum to Verizon Fios, we still used mail.optonline.net as our outgoing server because Verizon Fios doesn't host mail. Our incoming server is a pop box on RCN, which hosts Robert's site.

A couple of weeks ago, the optonline box stopped working for Robert, and we switched him over to an smtp outgoing box on rcn. It works fine.

My optonline worked for another week. Then, when it stopped working, I installed it first on my G4, and then on my iPhone. I was getting incoming mail on the G4 until 11:35 that day, the time I installed it on the iPhone. Now I only get incoming mail on my iPhone.

I know the answer is to buy a new computer, but we can't for a few more months, so we really need to fix the G4. I called RCN and Apple, and they both said that it's a Thunderbird problem. The iPhone says "Delete from server Never" under Advanced. So it shouldn't be interfering. But it is.

Please help.

Good morning,

We have a problem on several machines with Firefox and RAM consumption. We use Outlook WebApp and when we open some mail in a new window with attachment, the memory consumption starts to be very high consuming space on the hard disk and leaving it empty. We do not know why or what is the process that causes this situation. It only happens with outllok webApp. (OWA) It doesn't happen all the time, it's a random problem. I hope someone can help me.

Thank you very much for your help.

I received a Yahoo email which contained a set of 33 images, all of which display correctly in W10 and (pardon the expression) Edge. Attachment 0 shows 1 of the 33 images.

Of those 33 images, I can see only 13 using W10 and Ffx 88.0.1. The rest are blank spaces. Attachment 1 is one of the blanks.

Attachment 2 is the URL for one of the blanks. Attachment 3 is an error message that I hope might help to determine what's going on here.

What am I missing? Do I have my Ffx settings messed up? I'd appreciate a nudge in the right direction...thanks!

Hallo, kann mir jemand helfen und eine Tip geben wie ich diese illegalen unerwünschten Firefox Updates stoppen und diesem Wartungsdienst die Rechte zur Installation von Updates entziehen kann. Dies nötigenden Zwangsupdates und unberechtigten Eingriffe in mein System finde ich ganz schlimm. Ich hatte mich mal für Firefox entschieden, weil ich hoffte die machen gerade sowas nicht. Allein schon das sie wissen, dass ich ein Update brauche bedeutet, dass sie den Datenschutz verletzen und das auf meinem PC erschnüffeln. Wären sie ehrlich dürften sie das gar nicht wissen, ohne mich zu fragen. Kann mir jemand sagen wie ich das verhindern kann, Ich habe gerade gar keine Zeit alles auf Opera oder Microsoft umzustellen. Selbst Microsoft fragt bevor es sowas macht.

Hello, can anyone help me and give a tip how I can stop these illegal unwanted Firefox updates and revoke this maintenance service the rights to install updates. I find this necessary forced updates and unauthorized interference in my system quite bad. I once chose Firefox because I hoped they wouldn't do something like this. Just the fact that they know that I need an update means that they violate the privacy and sniff that on my PC. If they were honest, they wouldn't know that without asking me. Can anyone tell me how to prevent this, I don't have time to switch everything to Opera or Microsoft right now. Even Microsoft asks before it does something like this.

I have three FF profiles on my Linux Mint 19.3 system (work, not-work and one for e-tail). Somehow the problem only appeared after I added that last one. All profiles have the same syntax; I checked the files. Neither one is set to be the dominant one. Typically, I don't use more than one at a time.

I also use Claws mail. Whenever I get any mail with a link I want to check out, I just used to click on that link and it opened in a new tab in the FF browser profile that was currently open. Similarly, whenever I wanted to see the HTML version of a mail, I right-clicked on the html-icon and chose open. Again, it picked the open browser.

Now, though, whenever I pick either one of those options above, I get the "Choose User Profile" box. If I pick the profile that is currently open, I get an error telling me that it's already running.

Since I mostly read email when I use the no-work FF profile, I tried to add "firefox -P NotWork -no-remote --class NotWorkProfile" but that also resulted in the choose user profile box to open.

My current work-around is to copy the link and open it in a new tab, or pull the whole mail into the tab to see the HTML version. Quite annoying.

Is there any way to get it to ignore all other profiles but the currently open one? Thank you for anyone who has an idea. Let me know if there's anything else I may add to explain the situation.

[My apologies if this isn't the right forum; I'm also attempting to ask this question in the Linux Mint and Claws forums, if those exist.]

I can't figure out how to make the vertical scrollbar actually usable. Firefox works fine on my PC but I also have a new Mac and on that machine the scrollbar is totally unusable on all sites, even with a stylus. I saw a couple posts about creating some custom code for this but I'm not a developer. This can't be only my problem? How do I just make it wider?

Hi! I have a customer that has been using Mozilla Thunderbird for several years... Over time she has created filters for "Subject" "Contains" and "Match any of the following". I have checked some of the filters and can't see any immediate problems... Just recently everything started going to trash..... I ran some tests and if I click on "Download Now" instead of waiting it goes straight to trash. I have even gone in the trash and marked each one and said not spam....If I move them back to inbox and send a new test from my email it sends the new one and others back to trash and highlighted as trash? Has anyone any ideas?

I wanted to post a question/request on the Thunderbird forum, so attempted to register. Site claims I've registered my email before (possible, but if so it's been a long time). So I attempt the password reset, but it requires the user name in addition to the email, which I have no record of. Bear in mind, I have usernames and passwords going back YEARS in Firefox, so either this one had to have been deleted, was never there, or goes back a LONG time. And I don't want to have to create and maintain a new email addy just for the purpose of joining this forum.

So then next step would be contacting the site admin to have him resolve this in one of a number of ways, but there is no admin email contact that I can find on the site. I tried posting a thread to ask for a contact email, since the FAQ implies posts may be possible without a login, but it won't let me. I'm pretty sure this whole scenario has been designed by Mordac the Preventer.

So does anyone here have an email for the Mozillazine forum admin?

I have a list in an Excel file of about 100 email addresses. I want to send an email to all of them. I followed the instructions to open Address Book, Tools/Import, selected Address Books, found the .csv file, hit Open. In the Import Address Book box it shows the first email on the list. I then clicked OK but when I opened the address book, it was blank. I tried again, this time in the Import Address Book box I clicked Next repeatedly and each name showed up, but I got the same result - a blank address book.

My csv file is just one column with the emails, not the names.

When I select the csv file, should I select Comma Separated? Should I go back to the Excel file and put commas after each address?

Help! Thank you!

Two days back Thunderbird became unable to download or send messages. I have verified that the server settings are correct, and they have not changed. I have also been unable to add to my Gmail, as it cannot connect to the server.

I think it must be either a corruption somewhere in the Thunderbird settings or possibly a firewall problem.

Is it possible to delete and restore the profile settings or try to find out where the problem might originate?

I would be very grateful for any help or suggestions anyone might have.
