I use DuckDuckGo for my basic search engine on both my laptop (Ubuntu system) and iPhone 8. It does not work today - saying "There was an error displaying the search results. Please try again.", needless to say...I have tried a number of times and differed the searches to no avail. I also cleared recent cache/history. Still stuck. Searching on Chrome I see on https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=40451490 that others are also experiencing this problem and do not understand it either - just a few entries

The Sun (a rather populist newspaper in UK) has an article saying it is international and happening today, 23 May 2024, suggests no fixes. (Not exactly a reliable source in my thing)

Has anyone ideas or should I just wait and use an alternative search engine meanwhile? Thanks for any help

There are many answers to the question of how to disable message threading. All are from earlier versions than mine, which is 115.7.0 -- as witnessed: Sorry! 0 results found for ‘disable threading in version 115.7.0’ for ‘Thunderbird'

Thunderbird seems to have so many minor changes and alterations in the recent past, that basic usability is affected. Not a good thing.

Once before, a few years ago, Thunderbird got so out of control that I had to go to a different mail client. Are we back to that?

My old email keeps showing up when Firefox is trying to auto fill email. How do I change that in Firefox. Same with addresses, My mailing address is shown in many different ways, all variants of my actual address.

Also, I have some kind of browser hijacker (BING) that keeps directing me to Bing website. I have tried the standard procedures as outlined, bu t still BING often redirects my searches. I am also working with my anti-virus people to try to correct, but thought I would ask you as well. Here's where it took me when I searched for cookies (like you bake in the oven): "https://www.bing.com/search?ptag=ICO-86655dbd68d344bb&form=INCOH1&pc=1AWL&q=cookies"

Thank You, looking forward to continuing with Firefox

How do I change the order of my email account folders in Thunderbird 115.6? I have multiple accounts and just added another, and I want to move it from the bottom of the sidebar to a higher location. I used to be able to click and move around accounts in the "account settings" mode. Now, that doesn't work. Is there a solution? The instructions provided in the video created by Thunderbird in 2022 doesn't work! Please help!

As written in the title, context menu is disabling the "Copy" item.

Fortunately, CTRL-C works. I found a workaround by disabling the Google Translate add-on, which I reported right away. Later I realized, it happens the same way with another add-on, too.

I see many people complaining about this in the past, not sure whether those have been fixed or this issue is still there.

Thanks for any help!

I'll not divulge my opinions of this FireFox add-on.

Suddenly, I can't send email from my Thunderbird (115.6.1 (64 Bit)) Windows app. Spectrum is my email provider. I can receive email just fine. However, when I respond to an email and when I send a newly created email or replying to a receive email, I get the following error message - " Sending of the message failed. An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded: <[edited] @tx.rr.com> sender rejected. The email address you are sending as must match the email address you used to auth. Please check your SMTP settings. AUP#Out-1500. Please verify that your email address is correct in your account settings and try again."

I've been using Spectrum and Thunderbird for many-many years. This problem is going to cost me big-time if not resolved soon. I love THUNDERBIRD!

Please help!

My email address is - [edited] @tx.rr.com [removed phone# from public]

I spent a few hours trying all the suggestions that i found by searching. Why is it so difficult to simply DISABLE FOREVER the threaded sort that so many of us find painful? Why can't we have a simple way to tell Thunderbird: "never ever sort by threaded"? As a last resort, i am currently searching for old versions of Thunderbird.

I'm very confused. I've been using Thunderbird as my email server for a few years. Recently, I stopped receiving emails December 12, 2023. I sent in a problem according to the help page that I found. I believe Mozilla is now the server for Thunderbird? I don't even know if that is accurate (part of my confusion). I followed prompts and confirmed my email address, apparently I now have a user name. I still can't send or receive emails. Can you help. I need step-by-step instructions, please.
