Let me start by stating that I'm aware of the possibility to set up a separate POP account, but this is not an alternative, I need have two IMAP accounts.

As some of you may know when getting a domain thorough googles Domains offering, one have in certain set-up situations use a gmail.com email address which is connected to the domain name, and used as credentials in OAuth2 or when creating or using an app password (from google security using the gmail.com address).

I have a dedicated domain name, let's call it "mydomain.com" which was acquired from and is hosted at Google Domains. When setting up the email account the email address it will be "somethingelse@mydomain.com" and the OAuth2 user and pw is taken from "myname@gmail.com" (which of course is different from "somethingelse@mydomain.com"). This is perfectly legit and used in many other email accounts, among other Outlook (Mac/Windows/web) and Mac OSX mail program without any problem.

The issue with Thunderbird, as I understand, being that myname@gmail.com is connected to "imap.gmail.com" stored at /home/myname/.thunderbird/yu9vjdct.default-release/ImapMail/imap.gmail.com, meaning that I get a "Incoming server already exist" message and hence unable to set up a second account using the same incoming server "imap.gmail.com" ("myname@gmail.com"), but for this other email address "somethingelse@mydomain.com".

Question is; it NOT as simple as stopping/closing Thunderbird and renameing "/home/myname/.thunderbird/yu9vjdct.default-release/ImapMail/imap.gmail.com" (NB! Name of thunderbird version may vary of course) to something else, since I have tried and does mot change the error message, obviously it appears that Thunderbird is set up to only use one and only one of the same "imap" account.

So my question is wheter possible att all do this in Thunderbirde aka solutions ( not using POP, as stated above) or is this simply a (probably an intentional) program feature (and not a "bug"?).

Thanks in advance for support.

This is going to be difficult to explain, so I'll do my best;

Recently, Firefox has been exhibiting a problem where, upon maximizing a window, the window extends up by a few pixels more than any other maximized window. Now, normally this wouldn't be a problem as the top of the screen would cut off any extra padding. However, using a program that reserves the screen edge shows that a maximized Firefox window indeed extend past the regular window border by exactly 8 pixels.

What's more, when using Windows Snap on two separate Firefox windows, one of the windows respects the screen edge while the other does not! This leads to the window control buttons at the top right of both windows to be in different vertical positions, which is difficult to use.

No other programs I have exhibit this behavior, which is why I'm turning to Mozilla support. I don't know if the issue has to do with the browser or how Windows 10 renders the desktop, but it throws off the design of the desktop as I intend to display it.

In the provided example picture, the left window demonstrates predicted behavior where the upper border of the window is at the position I intend (40 pixels from the true screen edge), while the right window can be seen extending past the left one by exactly 8 pixels. This is utterly baffling to me and I hope someone might understand and be able to suggest any solutions.

Thank you!

If I check my internet speed in Firefox using various speed test websites, it shows 50Mb download, and upload shows about 9Mb. In any other Browser it reports 70Mb down and 20Mb up. It has been 70 up & 20 down for some years. If I restart Firefox in safe mode, I get 70Mb / 20Mb as expected. If I remove Add-ins, it is still slow. I tried a refresh, and it's still slow. I have no extensions, themes and have turned hardware acceleration off. Changing the proxy settings doesn't help either.

Hello. I'm using a brand-new installation of Firefox 78.0.1 on a freshly installed copy of Windows 10 Pro. The only way I can get Firefox to display any notifications is by having alerts.useSystemBackend set to true. While this is set to false, notifications will not work. If I use this site to test them, it just says, 'queued for display', followed immediately by 'closed'. I've also tried creating a new profile and testing it again with no success. All sites were granted notification permissions in each case.

Thanks for any help.

i have used Thunderbird email client in the past and it always worked flawless. However, for the last year, after I installed it on my new laptop and desktop, it is very unreliable and unstable. It downloads email messages ok, however when I open the email, it freezes up, becomes unresponsive. it looses the ability to scroll in open emails. it is about the worst thing since the email client released by Microsoft. Matter of fact, it is more unstable. What happened to my once "go to" email client? Somebody please help. The way it functions right now, I may uninstall it and use Gmail from google, less aggravation.

For several days now, for unknown reasons, the summary files for many of my email folders (a POP account with Verizon) just keep vanishing from my profile. I have repeatedly recreated the files and repaired the folders, and then at random they vanish again. I updated to 68.10.0, tried starting in Safe Mode, and the same thing keeps happening. I'm running Windows 10 on an HP Pavilion laptop (which keeps giving me all sorts of hell, but that's neither here nor there).

A few days ago I needed to do a System Restore to roll back from a graphics driver update that rendered the computer unusable, and while I can't imagine why that would have affected Thunderbird, it does coincide with when this issue began.

One is abstracted, clicks ok, and destroys their well set up browser for no reason at all !!!

You should rename the damn "refresh" or better completely trash it!

Fingers crossed - I may have solved this problem by completely uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. The problem: Every time I opened Firefox, the Safe Access app on my Synology RT2600ac router would send an alert to say that it had blocked a connection to vice.com. I've never visted that website, so I have no idea why Firefox would keep triggering an alert from my router. Has anyone any idea what might have cause this?
