Twice in the last 2 months, one of my GMail accounts stopped moving new messages to my Local Folders as per the Filter rule. I clicked Get Messages repeatedly, closed and restarted TB. Nothing. I finally selected the Inbox and clicked Run Filters on Folder and ALL the messages were copied to my local folder again. Worse, when I clicked remove duplicates on the local folder, it only found 400 or so of the 26K messages. I can see many duplicates myself. Is there a way to see when TB retrieved or copied a message? If there were a column with that info, I could just zap all the "new" ones myself, but the OrderReceived column seems to be a GMail column. TIA, Bill

Opening web page from Thunderbird opens new Firefox window

I run Thunderbird on an email-only system which I can access from LAN or remotely.. I "ssh -X" to that system and run Thunderbird, which displays on my workstation. Until an update a few days ago, when I clicked on an http/https link in Thunderbird, if there was an instance of Firefox running on my workstation, the link would open in a new tab on the most recently accessed Firefox window. If there was no instance of Firefox running on the workstation, then Firefox would be started on the email-only system, which would display on my workstation. After the recent update, the behavior has changed: clicking on a link always opens Firefox on the email-only system, not a new tab on the workstation.

Running Thunderbird 78.14.0 on Centos 7.9 email system, Firefox 94.0 on Fedora 33 workstation.

Any suggestions on how to have the previous behavior?

Close, maximize and minimize buttons are hidden but working if you click were supposed to be. It seems a problem with paining order. The buttons seems to be below the black bar. If I click on Tools, preferences. The program shows a white screen and crashes. Before the program crashes some times the buttons appear. See images.

I've sent the bug report when asked for.

Got the following from Google:

"Google Soon you’ll sign in with 2-Step Verification a@gmail.com After you enter your password, you’ll complete a second step on your phone. Keep your phone nearby when you sign in.

2-Step Verification will be turned on automatically on December 14. You can turn this on sooner if you want — your account is all set."

I get my email auto downloaded from my Google mail account. Will this change affect my ability to auto download?

Firefox for Android 7.0, Firefox 94.1.2 and Logins and Password

"Autofill in other Apps" selection never appears in the menu for the above set up but does appear in an Android 8.1 version with the same Firefox version of 94.1.2.

The 7.0 Android version never offers a valid saved login for external apps.

The 8.1 Android version will pop up a text box below the User ID entry that says "Unlock Firefox" but selecting the text box does nothing. The same text box also appears below the password box after manually entering the User ID and selecting CONTINUE to get to the Password entry box (but only in 8.1) If you Long Press the User ID or Password box in 8.1 it offers a Paste selection but it's not a UID or Password, just the last Cut item.

In Android 10.0 Long Press on the UID or Password box will bring up an "Autofill" box but it does nothing and does not offer a UID or Password anywhere for external apps.

Something is clearly broken in External App password from Firefox for Android. All the available settings are as they should be set. The Password fill works as it should from the Web Page of the same App entity, say Amazon for example.

So.....whose problem is this?

I believe this started with 94.0.2 but could be 94.0.1. Looking at various things in Easysnews.com, for instance thumbnails, the title for that item used to change from blue (Unvisted Links) to brown (Visited Links) and keep the brown color until I exited Easynews. Now it does not. In another case, looking at my list of favorite groups, the group name will turn brown as long as my mouse is over it but it will not stick if I select that item.

I am not using system colors and Override the colors specified by the page with your selections above is set to Only With High Contrast themes. I tried the other two choices but they really created a mess.

I have also tried deleting any easynews cookies to no effect.

An address is a URL. A search is keywords. They are not interchangeable. How do I get Firefox to stop mixing them up?

When I want a URL, I type it in the address bar. Search has no relevance to a URL, and any intervention of Search gets in the way, and creates errors.

When I click in the search bar, it's because I want a keyword search with one of the search engines. A search is not a URL.

They are two completely different things, and treating either one as the other is error. I do not want Firefox to kidnap my cursor and teleport it to somewhere I didn't click. They are two entirely different spaces, they are not interchangeable. When I click in the search bar, it's because I want a search. Don't you dare second guess me and change my click to the address bar.

How do I turn off this stupid stupid stupid error behavior of FIrefox?

I tried this and it didn't work. In about:config • keyword.enabled and toggle it from True to False. • browser.fixup.alternate.enabled and toggle it from True to False.

After updating to v. 91 about 2 weeks ago I now noticed that two local folders became draft folders and ALL messages stored there are now "drafts", including all received messages. I did NOT change any account settings. The two folders are among those that I use most frequently.

How can I revert the attributes of these two folders to "normal" local folders again so that the messages stored there are "final" and not "drafts"? Thank you.

Hi,

I have been unable to send emails with SMTP for the last couple of days, although it previously worked without problems.

System: macOS 10.14

SMTP Settings: Server: smtp.office365.com Port: 587 Connection Security: STARTTLS Authentication Method: OAuth2 Username: full email address

When sending an email, I get a "Login to account XXX failed. Login to server smtp.office365.com with username YYY failed".

Things I have already tried: (1) if I try to send email directly from Outlook, it works. (2) removing the SMTP server in TB and adding it again didn't work. (3) removing saved passwords in TB: if I go to Preferences -> Privacy -> Saved passwords, there is one line only:

oauth://login.microsoftonline.com (https://outlook.office365.com/IMAP.AccessAsUser.All https://outlook.office365.com/POP.AccessAsUser.All https://outlook.office365.com/SMTP.Send offline_access)

Removing that line and restarting TB will result in a popup taking me to institutional login, where I enter my email and pwd. I login without problems, but I still get the same error.

IMAP is working fine, so I am a bit unsure what the issue might be. I am not sure if SMTP passwords are stored somewhere else and that is creating problems, or if my prefs.js file is somehow corrupted (nothing obvious I could tell by reading it).

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

I have a large gap in my emails from April this year, and despite making numerous changes to settings I cannot get them to upload to thunderbird, so I can have a historical record. I have made changes to IMAP in both Gmail and Thunderbird, no joy, so went back to POP3 in both, again no joy, if I click get messages I jest get a "connected to pop.gmail.com" then it clears and nothing has uploaded. Any ideas it is p***ing me off.
