My domain registrar recently switched my email accounts from Workspace to Office365. I have 2 active email accounts and can only seem to get one of them to fully operate in Thunderbird 91.2.0. Both will receive emails but only one will send emails.

The settings for SMTP are Server name: smtp.office365.com Port: 587 Encryption method: STARTTLS

Attempts to send emails from second account get error message:

"Sending of the message failed. The message could not be sent using Outgoing server (SMTP) smtp.office365.com for an unknown reason. Please verify that your Outgoing server (SMTP) settings are correct and try again."

Anyone resolve this issue?

Regrettably I got locked out of my Sync account due to losing my 2FA and recovery. Giving that to err is human and data losses happen, I had hoped that there would be an alternate method of resolution, even if it means that the account is deleted so that the end user can use their primary e-mail account.

Given that my account login is my e-mail address and my e-mail address is the equivalent of a company holding my name and address I assumed it would be possible to use an official request for data removal.

Unfortunately Mozilla will only remove your e-mail address from mailing lists and not from sync account servers. So, it would appear that once you lose your 2FA, Mozilla can retain your personal details forever, and there's nothing you can do about it. Essentially what I got back after waiting for a month was being removed from any e-mail subscriptions and a 'get stuffed we can't help you, here's a link that we know can't help you'. Pretty bad after waiting a month.

It certainly makes it very secure, I'll say that, but also very weird to have an e-mail address that is unusable for the next few thousand years. Essentially on a blacklist. Having moved to Firefox after Netscape Navigator it's a shame to be locked out or to even be able to delete the account so I can start again. Anyway, my account sync with Edge and Chrome on both my Kubuntu and Windows install work fine so it's not like I don't have a browser that won't sync.

If anyone does have a solution, I'll take it, but after a month of trying various methods I think my e-mail address is now useless for Firefox Sync, and thus Firefox is now useless to me and I'll have to use Edge and Chrome instead.

How to Advise Mozilla that Capricious Changes to FireFox Interface are Unwelcome!

Perhaps some like change for its own sake. Many just want to use a browser to get work done.

I am Reticent to Upgrade FireFox because I now expect something To Change, To Break, I don't want the look and feel to change when I want to get work done! I want security fixes but broken features and a rearranged interface hinders the use of a browser.

Continuity is key to smooth use of a Browser. Moving menus, changing tabs, rearranging features, dumbing down menu titles is most unwelcome.

I particularly don't want browser interface changes intended for a tablet or pad for use on a desktop or laptop computer.

Changes to the Appearance should be OPT IN not OPT OUT.

Firefox keeps redirecting my localhost web page to another internet domain

I am a web developer who often writes websites on my own local computer. I use Apache web server, and using both the httpd.conf file and Windows' "hosts" file ( C:\Windows\System32\etc\hosts ) I can make an alias for 127.0.0.1, otherwise known as localhost. Because my name is greg, I can add a server name to my localhost, like http://greg/test.html.

This works pretty well, but sometimes when I add a new alias, like greg or gregory, Firefox doesn't pick up on it right away. I can go to http://greg/test.html in Chrome, and it goes to the local web page just fine. But if I try it in Firefox, it tries to redirect me to "http://www.greg.com". The usual fix is to go into Settings -> Privacy & Security -> Cookies and Site Data -> Clear Data -> Cached Web Content, then press CLEAR.

But this doesn't always work, and it seems like no matter what I clear, Firefox insists on not looking up my local server alias, but instead redirects me to https://www.greg.com.

How do I force Firefox to look for http://greg/ only on my local server?

Hi,

I know several questions have been asked previously on this topic, but none of the answers seems to help me resolve the situation.

I use Thunderbird on my desktop and the email application on my iPhone.

I keep getting the error message 'unable to connect...may have exceeded number of connections...reduce cached connections'

I have done the following:

1. Reduced the number of cached connections to 1 on all my email addresses. 2. Increased the time between 'check for new emails' to various amounts, 10min, 60min, 120min 3. I had my iPhone turned off for 24 hours (you have no idea how hard that was!!!) to help the server reset 4. I have spoken to my email provider (Heart Internet) and they have assured me there are no issues at the server end.

Any suggestions, really would be appreciated.

Many thanks.

Grant.
