I am so incredibly disappointed with thunderbird, long such an excellent email program. WHY did you make it so difficult to load previous profiles? I have read and tried several methods to get old profiles working again, but so far no success. WHY not make an easier way to import them? Over a decade of saved messages, from all relatives, all passwords/logins (I would email myself) and many saved articles and jokes. I am so disappointed they have not made this easier (if indeed it is possible, as yet no article I have followed has worked). So disappointed.

This morning I open my laptop and there's no Thunderbird. Icon is missing and a search of the hard drive comes up empty. A truly WTF moment. I Googled this phenomenon and ended up downloading and reinstalling Thunderbird. All email folders and email returned (thank god).

The lighting Calendar now only shows events from one of five I had enabled with the others all saying "The provider for this calendar could not be found. This often happens if you have disabled or uninstalled certain addons.

The location shows the URL (e.g., googleapi://...) and an email address, but the Enable This Calendar check box is greyed out.

All I did was the forced-to-update reinstall of Thunderbird.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

TB78 update - can't send mail to a group

The update to 78 happened automatically this morning. In the recent past, I have successfully sent a simple email to myself (in the To: field) and to a list, named Covid team 2020, containing 30 addresses in the Bcc: field. After update, I can't send this item. But it is then located in my Sent folder, which is in itself a nuisance as I expected to find it in Drafts. I've had two different error messages, one reporting that Btinternet.com wouldn't accept the item but I think I resolved that by resorting to Control Panel and troubleshooting my connection. The other was more curious, please see added image. I appear to be able to open the message and forward it to (only) me, so I conclude that the content is not the cause of the problem. In earlier years, I have had a problem posting to a large list so that I split the large list into four smaller ones, the largest of which contained 40 addresses. So my 30 this time ought not to cause the problem, unless 78 has changed the list size condition. People seem to be having problems with TB 78 so am I or is a problem of my own making?

I've been trying to resolve this now for four hours ...

The old connection to my e=mail server was changed but it keeps asking me for a password.

The old one was listed as lhaws02. XXXX and that was deleted a couple of months ago and I set it to the new one, lhvm02.XXXX. I'm connecting and getting my e-mail but I keep getting a request for my password to the old one, the lhaws02.XXXX and I can't find where it is in Thunderbird so I can delete it or replace with the new one.

How do I find it?

Thanks!

I am trying to integrate the Thunderbird calendar with my main calendar, which is Google's calendar on Chrome. (I'm using a MacPro Catalina version 10.15.4.) I basically want to enter calendar events in Thunderbird and have them automatically show up in my Google calendar, and vice versa. Seamlessly.

The documentation said I would need to download Provider and Lightning as Add-ons. However, the add-ons don't work with my version of Thunderbird. (version 78.1.0.)

Am I out of luck?

Many thanks,

Art

Since the new update was released I have been unable to figure out how to have the 'Open with Firefox' option for PDFs display the URL for the website and not my computer's program files.

I link a number of PDFs for my work and currently need to switch to Chrome to obtain the correct link, which is unnecessary and time consuming, prompt help would be greatly appreciated!

Please, I have read your articles, started in safe mode and this freezing continues. I am unable to type a complete sentence without freezing. This happens in Outlook email, or the search bar.

This does not happen in Word or other programs only in Firefox. This started after the latest update to version 79.0. I am a simple user and not a tech person. I’ve used Firefox as my browser for years. Perhaps this is a conflict with the new Microsoft update version 2004 home version. Maybe they want to force to change to Edge.

I have a print screen of the task manger showing usage. But not sure if that will help. Please help me, this is so frustrating. I’m tying this in Word to cut and paste into your box. I tried to upload two pdf's would not allow.

Why does FF reset the homepage to firefox home with the latest update? 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 don'tr know what this would fall under. So I chose other

I cannot use this browser anymore. At first I thought it was web root, because on the options page it said, "this browser is run by this organiztion" or some such crap. and if I click on it, it said webroot.

I CONTROL THIS, I AM THE ORGANIZATION. SO I GOT RID OF WEBROOT.

Once again, when i made FIREFOX THE DEFAULT, IT CHANGES ,MY OTHER DEFAULTS. THIS IS A NIGHTMARE, I DON'T KNOW OF ANYONE WHO WOULD USE A BROWSER THAT DOES THAT. iT CHANGES MY PDF FILES INTO LITTLE ICONS OF FIREFOX AND IT DOESN'T GO TO MY EMAIL WHEN I CLICK AN EMAIL LINK IT GOES TO A BOX. I NEVER SET A THING TO DO THAT. I LOOKED ALL OVER THE SETTINGS, AND I CAN'T TELL WHAT IN THE WORLD WOULD CAUSE IT TO DO THAT. I JUST END UP HAVING TO USE CHROME, WHICH IS LIKE TELLING THE WORLD WHAT YOU ARE DOING; SHAME ON YOU FIREFOX, THIS IS A SCREWY AND VERY BAD THING.

Basically since about 15-30 days ago my firefox has been constantly crashing when I open new tab or even simply a link to a website... the more 'power consuming' process is the more likely it will crash. Simply browsing stuff has nearly 0 likelihood of crashing. The frequency varies - something like youtube or steam game browsing will crash with extremely high frequency and will work fine after reopened. Some text based websites will barely ever crash the firefox.

What happens is either instant crash(most frequently) or infinite 'not responding' with the solution being task manager end process.

Either way it happens - reopening browser reopens all tabs that were open.

What I tried: 1) Cleared cache 2) Disabled all extensions. 3) Tried checking about:crashes - 0 reports there in last 30 days... meaning whenever I crash no actual crash report comes in.

I am using chrome at the same time and it has 0 crashing issues under similar circumstances.
