Every time I open up Thunderbird a tab opens up containing a Thunderbird Privacy Notice. As I'm working then every so often a number tab opens with the same information. If I'm in Thunderbird for long I can have a dozen on more identical tabs. How do I stop this?

As of Sunday, Thunderbird can no longer reach my ATT server to download email. It has behaved for ten to fifteen years. Last time someone at ATT fixed it. I have been on the phone or on screen with ATT most of my waking hours since Sunday. (In the process I lost my internet, my landline, my cell connection, etc.) Everything is restored except the connection between Thunderbird and ATT. Everyone thinks changing my password will do it. Done it four times. It gets me into the ATT mail. I have replaced the password in Thunderbird settings with it to no avail. Is there anything you can think of? Not only is Thunderbird more attractive than ATT, I have thirty years of mail boxes there, a continuation from Eudora. I will appreciate your wisdom.

I am using Thunderbird 115.12.1 (64 bit) on Windows 10 with the email account set up as POP3 for the Gmail account

I have a subfolder under an Inbox (Gmail account) that is no longer showing up. If I search for an email address from a sender that was in the folder, I get a list of emails showing the dates and subject, but if I click on the email, the tab that opens is blank.

My PC crashed, but I can't say for sure when the folder disappeared, other than I know it was there 4 days ago. It the the only subfolder that is missing.


Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Im currently reading books (pdfs) in firefox and I would like to hide the scroll bar. Im using full screen mode and especially the bar the the bottom is annoying while reading. I've seen a few topics posted about this issue but they are from a few years back and the solution posted doesn't seem to work anymore. (creating profile/chrome/userChrome.css with some code) But maybe the code is just outdated or I did something wrong. Im not too sure.

The best solution to me would be to just hide the bottom scroll bar. I didnt find any option in about:config except for making them (bottom and right) both thinner.

I would greatly appreciate any help.

This just started recently, and I have no clue yet how it started or how to fix it. I have tried several "fixes" listed on the internet, but no luck so far. I'm running Thunderbird V 102.5.0 (64 bit) on Windows 11. This does not happen to any other programs that I may be running, only TB and only after I delete the 2nd or 3rd email in my sbcglobal account. It doesn't happen with my gmail account that I have running in TB also. The freeze lasts a couple of minutes, and then reoccurs after I delete 2 or 3 more emails. It seems to only affect my "inbox" and not "sent" or "trash". Sorry if this has been asked and answered before, but I was unable to find it here. Would appreciate any assistance to point me in the direction of a solution. Thanks

When looking at my list of folders after download, the SPAM folder doesn't seem to update the count of unread messages until I specifically open it. I miss the fact I have spam unless I specifically go in and look. Is this a function/feature of JUST the SPAM folder (all other folders seem to have their counts updated after a download). On Thunderbird 115.12.1 64 bit if that is of interest.

I was finally forced to upgrade from win7 (which worked) to win 10 (me no likey) because of a required program which would not even install on win7. After the upgrade, which obliterated my hard drive of several important things, I am reinstalling TB. I always used an NAS directory for Thunderbird, and have email records going back nearly twenty years. I installed TB 115 and have tried several ways to get it to recognize my profile directory on the NAS to no avail. I tried copying data into the default directory the 115 install is looking at. The about:profiles shows it is looking in the correct directory, it produces a parent.lock file in that directory when I run the program. It does not give me my email, or contacts. I do not use the calendar or to-do lists.

My system is an AMD K6-6400K with 16 GB and a 500 GB drive. Though programs are loaded on the drive ALL data is stored in an NAS. There is about 375 GB available on the C drive.

I have used the cmd line to pull up profile manager, added a profile, pointed it to the data that is on the NAS, a parent lock file is created there too but it shows me no mail.

I have edited the profiles.ini file manually to have the program look at the directories, both the NAS and a local directory which has had the old files entered. Neither worked.

I tried opening TB and creating a new profile and pre-loading the info there, nothing. I've been at this for days now. I have uninstalled and removed manually all TB folders and reinstalled older versions to give that a go but without effect. I am no Luddite (Many years ago I owned a system integration, assembly and install company doing networking for the military as a civilian contractor.) but someone has to explain this to me like I am a five year old. There is no reason having my email back should be this difficult!

PLEASE give me a hand?

My TB directory appears in C:\Users\owner\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird My old data folder was on a network drive at M:\Users\owner\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\profiles\k5zbs5az.default When I manually enter the M: address in the profiles.ini file, it "corrects" it to C:\Users\owner\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\ even though the switch 'relative' is off.

[Profile1] Name=default IsRelative=1 Path=Profiles/zpfeu8eu.default Default=1

[Profile0] Name=default-beta IsRelative=0 Path=C:\Users\owner\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird

[General] StartWithLastProfile=0 Version=2

[Install5D388C1349709B37] Default=C:\Users\owner\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird Locked=1

Running the Mozilla application with a specific profile using command line arguments brings up the program but no mail. It creates a lock file in the correct directory, but no joy.

I get no pop up error messages.

I have been unable to receive eMails from my internet provider (Optusnet) in Australia for sometime now. I keep getting a "Time Out" message from Thunderbird. I am using the latest version of Windows 11 on my PC.

I have spoken to Optus and confirmed that I am using the correct IMAP (Port 923) and SMTP (Port 25) settings. Is it possible to fix this in the settings menu. Or is this an Optus security issue that they are currently working on.

Kind Regards,

I'm porting Thunderbird from my W-10 PC to a new Mac. I tried some things and found help on the net. Heere are the steps I took:

WHAT DOESN'T WORK (but I did): Removed installed Profiles folder and saved on desktop. Transferred PC Profiles folder to same place in Mac.

Deleted PC folder from Mac. Replaced Mac Profiles folder had previously moved. Deleted installs.ini and profiles.ini Started Thunderbird which created new profiles in Profiles folder.

WHAT SHOULD WORK BUT DIDN'T (after above): Removed new contents of Profiles folder. Transferred contents of PC Profiles folder to Profiles folder on Mac. Got the following message: "Your Thunderbird profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible."

What did I do wrong? Do I need to uninstall Thunderbird and reinstall? Would that solve problems?

Thank you.

For the last several weeks (can't give an exact date, but it's been more than just a couple weeks, less than a couple months), both my husband and I have had issues loading videos in FF. We both have the latest version of FF. I went thru "Fix common audio and video issues" and did all those things, as well as trying to load the videos in troubleshooting mode. Nothing has helped (tho now that i cleared all the cache, i'm gonna have to log back into all those websites :( ). Nothing else is problematic. Our internet connection is fine. In fact, my husband has resorted to using MS browser to watch videos--they load fine in that browser. I have no other idea what to do. Searching your database for "youtube videos load slow" only resulted in a couple hits with no resolution. Hopefully this isn't the third. thanks
