Gmail: I sometimes receive emails which are visible on my Gmail app, but do not show in the inbox of Thunderbird. There is a temporary 1 against the mail box, but no mail is visible as received. This seems to occur if Gmail message coming back is part of a conversation. Even forwarding the email from my phone app to my email address does not always work. Any Ideas?

Hi,

I am using a long time already Thunderbird in connection with an Outlook account (at work). Recently I need to use Outlook every now and then.

The issue I see is that the Inbox at Outlook shows more mails than the corresponding Inbox at Thunderbird. I.e. mails that I moved from Inbox in Thunderbird to another folder still show in the Outlook Inbox.

See here what I did try already, but ultimately I got stuck ... :

  • "compacting" the Inbox at Thunderbird always gives the desired result, i.e. the Outlook Inbox is again synchronous with the Thunderbird Inbox.
  • From there, I got some hunch it would be related to the "expunge" functionality. So I decided in the advanced preferences to set:
    • "expunge_after_delete" to true
    • "expunge_threshold_number" to 0.

However, still no success. Unless I compact manually, the Outlook Inbox stays out of sync.

I don't think it is very version related - feels like I have this issue forever - but now I am on 91.5.0.

Any hint as how I could solve this?

Hey, when I compose a message word wrapping works and the message text is wrapped to the message composer window size. That all works fine.

However whenever I review a sent message, there is no word wrapping. The result is every paragraph is one long line that has to be scrolled to view. Is there no way for Thunderbird to wrap in the sent message view?

Thanks for you support!

I am using Windows 10 on a desktop computer with all current updates, including all drivers using Driver Booster 9. It occasionally crashes - usually blue screen error video TDR failure, ndlddmkm.sys.

After one crash yesterday, no saved login information came up on Firefox - no user ID or password.

In C:\Users\Paul\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\z9j81sb8.default there were seven corrupt logins files, logins.json.corrupt and logins.json-1.corrupt to logins.json-6.corrupt, the last of these with a date modified showing the day of that crash, i.e. yesterday's date. Renaming this to the logins.json didn't restore any logins when Firefox restarted. I tried a couple of others too, and the logins.json from my laptop. None gave me my logins back.

There is no folder on my Desktop.

This has been VERY inconvenient. I have been relying on Firefox, and know only a some passwords. Thank goodness I always ignored Firefox's offer to generate a password for me.

I can't connect to my printer since installing Mozilla VPN on my desktop yesterday. I've read the article about how to turn it on/off but I can't get to where the box pops up so I can use the toggle switch. Apparently, I need to turn it off so I can change a setting (Network settings - Local network access).

Please help me. Thank you, Katie

I'm just wondering if anyone knows how to view an image at it's actual size on firefox for android. I'm wondering if there's a way to take an image that I'm looking at in firefox that's bigger than the resolution of my screen, and display it at it's actual size. Desktop firefox has the option, with the magnifying glass.You can zoom in so the picture's bigger than the screen, and you can scroll to see the whole thing. Can I do that with the mobile app as well? I know I can zoom in, but it's a real toss up how stretched or unstretched it'll look, and I'd rather just view it actual-size.

Appreciate everyone's time here. Thanks.

I cannot be too precise when this started happening but at some point in the past two months, I have found that Thunderbird repeatedly notifies me about the same unread emails. I think it's probably since upgrading to 91.

I am accessing my inboxes with IMAP and they have multiple subfolders. The subfolders may contain 1 or more unread emails. I do not want or need more than one notification about any given unread email. I am quite sure that Thunderbird 78 did not do this, as it is noticeably irritating.

I am experiencing this with Thunderbird on Debian accessing my personal email and Thunderbird on Ubuntu accessing my work email.

My Linux Mint 18 (64bit) upgraded my Thunderbird to version 91.5.0. That version is a mess. I am trying to ask a question and Mozilla wants to send replies to my primary email. Unfortunately due to the Thunderbird upgrade I can no longer pop my emails to that address nor send anything.

I have a gmail account that works but how do I change my primary email address since Mozilla keeps sending me a code to an address that Thunderbird won't let me get mail at?
