I have run Firefox in Safe Mode, and I still get the crashes, often on a Checkout page after getting an order together. My software is updated to the latest versions available, and I have kept my security up to date. If we cannot find a fix to stop all this crashing, I'll have to give up on Firefox as being highly unreliable. Since I am totally blind, RELIABILITY IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME!

Background: I have been a user of Thunderbird for many years, starting before it became open-source. I have been on Windows 10 since it first came out.

1. I have turned off everything I can find in T-bird that might designate a message as junk, but still many messages that are OBVIOUSLY not junk are immediately placed in the junk folder. For example: messages from my wife, some of my own messges, messages from businesses (even my bank) that I have daily interaxtions with. Thus, every session with T-bird I must first go to the junk folder and evaluate each "new" so-called junk message and mark most of them as non-junk. Then I go back to the input folder, run my filters (none of which will call any of these questionable messages "junk",) and find that several of them have been put back in the junk folder. I "un-junk" them again, and then go to the inbox, where I must run each individual filter to place each such message in the appropriate folder. This is a tremendous waste of time, and it never happened until the last few months.

The filter at the top of my filter list (the first one to be run) is supposed to mark ALL incoming messages as "non-junk," but that does not seem to help.

2. With one of the recent "updates" it became impossible to scroll, minimize, maximize, or shrink the contents of any filter while editing it. I have ten filters that have many more specs in them than can fit on one screen. The "edit" window for a filter looks like a standard Windows window, with an X in the upper right corner to clode it, but without the icons for shrinking, maximizing, or minimizing the window, and no scroll bar to permit scrolling through the filter's conditions. That means that a filter now is limited to about a dozen conditions, and there is no way I can make changes to those ten large filters (I cannot get down to the "Save" or "Exit" buttons. This limit is not mentioned in any documentation that I can find.

3. In just the last couple of days while running my filters I have been getting warnings that "The --- folder cannot be found, so messages cannot be moved to it." In every case, I have had no difficulty finding the folder mentioned, and every filter referring to it has it listed correctly.

4. Very recently, whenever I start Thunderbird, and sometimes when I delete a message, I get an annoying message offering to remove all deleted messages from my hard drive automatically whenever one is deleted. The only choices are "Yes" and "No." I do NOT want Thunderbird to delete messages, because I cannot trust Thunderbird to determine junk messages in any rational way. THERE SHOULD BE AN OPTION TO TURN OFF THAT ANNOYING MESSAGE PERMANENTLY.

5. A minor annoyance is the recent unnanounced change in the way a new message is addressed. Once I accidentally stumbled on how the new systemt worked, I could deal with it. However, any change in the way a user interface is to be used should be accompanied by a brief note to all users about how to use the new interface. I should NOT have to read all the tedious detail in the change log every couple of days to find out what new trick you have decided to play. I don't see ANY advantage to the one-line for addresses over the old multi-line address procedure.

I have gotten to the point where I am for the first time ever starting to look at alternatives to Thunderbird. I will try to stay with Thunderbird for a few more months to see if you can fix some of these issues. Migrating to another email client is surely going to be a significant challenge, but I am getting close to the point of needing to.

Sincerely, Eric Myrvaagnes

Hi;

Have Thunderbird v78.0.1 (32bit). Tried importing items, (EML format), from Windows Live Mail v2011 Build 15.4.

Used Thunderbird's built in Import Tool. Kept getting: "Can't find other e-mail programs" even though Live Mail is still installed.

Downloaded importexporttools_ng-4.1.0-tb.xpi AND importexporttools-3.3.2-sm+tb(1).xpi. Both show "Not for v78.0.1".

Would someone kindly point me in the right direction so that I can Import Windows Live Mail Accounts & E-Mails into Thunderbird v78.0.1 (32bit)?

Thank You.

Hi, I'm using Thunderbird 68.8.0 (32-bit) on Windows 10. My work account is based off gmail. I tried switching to the dark theme- but it seems the emails themselves still appear in a white background with the dark text. Tested for plain text mails, calendar invites as well.

Does anyone know of a workaround to get a true dark mode on actual emails as well? Thanks !

We deploy our Windows based systems to hundreds of customers and count on FF to bring them to our company homepage to check for updates, documentation, etc. How can I make sure my customers systems always start on my homepage? P.S. We have hundreds of customers so going to each system is not really feasible.

I have NO idea what is going on:

  • Just clicking on folders = MASSIVE LAG/HANG/FREEZE.
  • Just clicking a menu icon = MASSIVE LAG/HANG/FREEZE.
  • Just clicking one email icon = MASSIVE LAG/HANG/FREEZE.
  • Just trying to open an email = MASSIVE LAG/HANG/FREEZE.
  • Trying to do ANYTHING = MASSIVE LAG/HANG/FREEZE.

It does not start to happen immediately when program starts, sometimes 1 minute after, sometimes more. I cant point out a reason or action that leads to this behavior. If I restart the program, the problem persists. If I reboot the system, its gone.

Its the only program in my system having this behavior. Examples of what I work daily with: MS Office programs, Adobe programs, Oracle VM, Visual Studio, Blender and Unity.

I read diagonally something about Windows Defender, how to proceed with that? How to disable ONLY for Thunderbird? It's an interface problem, why should that work? Is this something else, memory leak, anything?

I love Thunderbird, using it for YEARS! I don't want to change, please help, I got loads of work to deliver! :(

EDIT: Found the edit Question on the right side of the screen (not bellow the post as expected), rearranged the text, and rewrote details so not to be confused with "internet lag".

Is this something that Mozilla would be able to fix in the next update?

Hi,

I am currently trying to setup my Thunderbird and all is going pretty well apart from one really sill little issue that I can't seem to get over. When I go into "Write" to create a new email I am finding that I always need to zoom the view to see what I am writing. This is not a problem with the font size. I have set my fonts correctly for both HTML and text type mails to Calibri 12pt and this is being recieved by people just fine in the correct font and size. This is just the zoom level of the emails (both to read and to create/write a new email that is too small for my resolution and screen. I don't have any special screen or resoulution and every other application looks just fine. It is only Thunderbird message pane. The iconds and menus are all fine in thunderbird too.

Every single time I go to read an email or create a new email I have to go through the song and dance of pressing CTRL+ three times to zoom up the window to an acceptable level. If I only had to do this once and if Thunderbird remembered it all would be well but I have to do it every single time I create a new email.

It is making thunderbird totally unusable for me. I saw there was an addon called AutoZoom but that is not working with my release of TB (78.1.1).

I just don't get why it would not be designed to remember the zoom level from last time - it makes not sense to me at all and I am quite exasperated.

What am I doing wrong ???

There is one other really annoying thing I wanted to ask about too. If I write some date like "5th June" in an email the "th" bit is always underlined like the spell check logic has no concept that a number with th or rd after should be treated as a data and not a spelling error. Is this fixable in my settings somehow? I am using the English (UK) Dictionary

Thanks all.

Am on w10-64 using TB 64bit

I was eager to use new TB so I updated from ~68 to 78. It is working.

However, I have lost the functionality of my most use AddOn TagToolbar. The developer of the AddOn has updated that for v78's MailExtension version, but as New method doesn't allow adding Toolbar in main TB, which TagToolbar was doing, now that toolbar is gone and I am facing a lot of problems using the AddOn with its new system.

I tried to reinstall 68.8.1 over 78, but it doesn't allow me, saying that "some later version has updated TB and it cannot be used with 68, so asked me to create new profile, otherwise it wouldn't run. Now, all my previous mails of last 20 years are locked in there was converted to suit v78, so I cannot just create a new profile and start from zero.

So I want to revert from v78 to v68 (or other equivalent non-beta)

Please guide step by step how I can revert and then install my older version of TagToolbar.

It is bad that TB forcefully converted my data without asking me, without telling me, and now those data cannot be used in older versions. If TB had given me warning of that sort, I would have preferred to create a "copy profile" so that TB doesn't migrates me old profile, rather makes a copy and then migrates that copy to suit new version. I had not expected such unruly behaviour from you guys.

Thanks. -- Rawat
