I am probably not tech savvy enough to adequately explain my problem.

My desktop has the latest version of Firefox and suddenly I can no longer log into my email from the AT&T homepage. When I attempt to log into my mail account I can select my user name and PW but when I press enter all that is displayed is a broken spinning blue circle that never stops and I cannot access my e-mail. Pretty sure there is a preference setting in privacy & security that I screwed up somehow.

Have disabled all add on's and security software but still get same result.

Is there a way to reset Firefox to the original install defaults without doing a complete Firefox removal and starting over from scratch? I have Chrome on my machine and email works fine. So am pretty sure I did something in settings that is causing my problem.

Hi Skilled Thunderbird Users,

I've just started using Thunderbird. My problem is similar to others, but not exactly the same. I have my own URL: e.g. mybusiness.com. I am using livemail.co.uk to access email.

I have set up email1@mybusiness.com, and email2@mybusiness.com. It almost works. I have sent and received emails from both, though the parameters are getting muddled and I have to redo them.

When I set it up, I put in different email addresses and different passwords for each address. With the same livemail parameters.

However, when I send, it mixes up the email addresses and says that "email2@mybusiness.net" is not the right address for email1@mybusiness.com. And other similar concerns. Sometimes it thinks I am trying to use mail.mybusiness.com - which isn't something that I've ever put in to the settings.

I have tried resetting this up repeatedly and it works for me to send/receive an email or two and then it mixes up the settings again.

Any ideas? Thanks, Rob

Hello.

Firefox prevents me from opening the following URL, citing Google Safe Browsing advisory:

https://github.com/sandboxie-plus/Sandboxie/releases

Google, however, denies having issued any recommendation to block.

I have noticed that the problem has something to do with my own profile. The problem doesn't appear under the following circumstances:

  • I start Firefox in troubleshooting mode
  • I start Firefox with a new profile

I tried manually disabling all my add-ons, but even with all of them disabled, I can still reproduce the problem.

Any idea what could be wrong with my setup?

Does Thunderbird support Server Name Indication (SNI)? I've been doing searches trying to find this out, but have not yet found anything. Thanks.


Background: My understanding is that a mail server (like exim) can use an SSL/TLS certificate specific to the domain of the sender's email address for encrypting submissions. But the email client (as in Thunderbird) has to support SNI as part of the STARTTLS process.

I'm having trouble with SMTP and IMAP settings, getting my email into Thunderbird. It says no, wrong password, but I've been all over GMail reset the password, but nothing works. I'm really fried. I can be kinda tech savvy but this has been too long a day and I have other major projects that need Thunderbird to be working now, soon.

Can someone recommend an online geek that could sort this out for me. I used to have an awesome guy but he's moved on and I don't want to sign up for a service for this one glitch.

I've checked all tutorials, checked Google, checked the settings in Thunderbird. No joy. Thanks if you have a suggestion.

Why does SMTP settings keep changing from one account to the next?

I think I have the same problem as https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1271890#answer-1262903.

It says: " ... Each account should send through an smtp server that is defined with the same User Name and password as the incoming account. ... ".

I have like foo@bar.com and baz@bar.com with the same smtp.bar.com. changing the description in one place changes it in the other sometimes.

Looks like I need ot add the same smtp server and give it a unique description for each user.

This is very confusing. Mow my ports are messed up.

Anyone got a sane way to deal with this?

thanks

Thunderbird absolutely refuse to remember my password. When i install Thunderbird 78.11.0 and start it the first prompt ask me for my password and then i check the box remember password and when i click OK i get a new prompt to enter my master password. I didn't set a master password. So i don't get my emails. I read that if you delete Key3.DB in the profile folder it will reset the remember password. The problem is that there is no Key3.DB file there. I can see only Key4.DB file . So what is the solution? Thanks for any help.

Two major issues with the way Thunderbird handles Message Filters:

  1. 1: Is there a way for Message Filters to apply globally to all mail accounts? It seems highly ineffective to protect myself from spam and phishing in one mailbox only to have the same attacks remain in other folders. If a global filtering list is not possible, is it at least possible to have a "Copy filter to..." function to save having to manually (and tediously) recreate them?
  1. 2: Until recently, the spam and fishing emails that were correctly managed in my main mailbox were deleted (as requested in the message filter I had created). Suddenly, about 3 or 4 months ago, they started being sent as "New" into the Spam folder of my Local Inbox. Refer back to #1 above and you see my frustration because now I've got spam and phishing emails that were properly dealt with in my main mailbox but now are circumventing the protection and now sitting there waiting for me to fully recreate all my filters again.
