I asked a simple question: "What is VPN?" I got dumped to pay for an Apple answer. I already have Apple Care. I just made a $15 Firefox donation. I have just signed up for the New, Improved Firefox after a lengthy absence from Firefox for being unhappy with the program. NOW... You ask ME to be nice! ? ! - Adrienne Pollak

I changed hosting on a domain/email account. I also changed the password. I did not delete the existing email since there is old meail I do not want to lose. I cleared all the saved passwords in TB, did send/receive. I was given the textbox to enter the password. After doing that However, I receive the error

Sending of password for user x@xx.com did not succeed. Mail server "pop server name" responded: Temporary authentication failure. ["pop server name": 2021-11-19 19:09:33] the "pop server name" is correct.

Then when I look in the TB saved passwords I see that the new entry shows the OLD Pop server. While there may be an authentication problem with the new "pop server", why do I see the OLD server in the saved list?

Hey.

I don't know if it's a "problem" or it's really right.

What you need to do for see an example of what I'm saying: 1. Open Telegram Web (web.telegram.org/k/) 2. Right click on any link 3. Right click again, over the link

You'll see a normal options menu, FF is not recognizing as a link So, because of that we can't open links using private window

I don't think anyone has noticed that yet.

Thunderbird -- Have I found the correct solution to: "send message error Sending of the message failed.,The message could not be sent because the connection to Outgoing server (SMTP) smtp.mail.wowway.com timed out. Try again."

Regarding having correct settings for smtp server...After working fine for a couple of years, in May my Thunderbird email client starting getting an error when trying to send email, requiring having to wait and retry multiple times to get the email to send without getting the timeout error. I spent a lot of time in May to resolve without success, then a lot more time this month. I have tried several different settings for "Authentication method" and "Connection Security" The smtp settings specified by my email provider, WOW, either don't match the Thunderbird options, or result in error. A different set of settings I tried seem to work, as well as a variation of what a WOW rep emailed to me in May. However I wonder if either of these settings cause any security issues to be concerned about--that is my main question now, since sending email seems to be working fine again.

1) The other week I set smtp server settings to Authentication method: Normal password Connection Security: STARTTLS That has been working fine for a couple weeks without error. However since WOW says they don't support STARTTLS is that a problem to specify those settings?

2) What one WOW rep specified in May on a screen shot with a handwritten note: Authentication method: Normal password Connection Security: None However when I specify "Connection Security: None" the only option allowed for Authentication method is: "Password, transmitted insecurely." Email seems to work without error with those settings. However is "Password, transmitted insecurely" a problem? Or is that OK? (Transmitted Insecurely doesn't sound reassuring!)

In multiple calls and hours of time with my email provider, WOW, they say they don't have any information about what the settings should be for Thunderbird, and despite their efforts have not been very helpful. Attached is some information they have provided on different occasions, or from the web site. Screen shot -- Outgoing Server (SMTP) Settings Standard POP3 Server information Email Server Settings

I have tried on windows and on linux, and the same thing happens for both. I don't get the plugins i should have. I want to try and enable java, but its not even appearing in the first place. My profile directory is all messed up as well. I don't have a pluginreg.dat, my extensions.sqlite is an extensions.json. I have been reading all the forums but they mention stuff about the files in the profile, but I don't have those files.
