PROBLEM: Earlier today my email was working just fine; I did not make any changes, but all of a sudden, the displayed list of emails does not show the subjects. Only some folders are affected.

WHAT I TRIED:

  • I clicked to show the "Select columns to display" box on both the affected and unaffected folders; neither includes "subject" as a choice.
  • I could not find anything applicable to this problem on your Help website.
  • I made sure my version of Thunderbird is up-to-date.

I am sending two images, one of a folder that still shows the subject, and one of a folder that does not.

The only other things that looks a bit unusual to me are two columns that I don't remember seeing previously, one before the "Correspondents" column on both folders - it looks like two closely placed dots, and has single dots entered into the list - and on one of the folders, a strange symbol before the "Date" column. Apparently these have something to do with sorting. The only reason I mention these is in case they remind you of something that might be helpful - I'm perfectly happy ignoring them.

Please help me get my subject column back. Thank you.

Hi guys,

I'm having problems with playing some videos on youtube and all videos on facebook. I have the last version, 77.0.1, 64 bit edition. I'm using a Dell Laptop, not the it would count, with windows 10 PRO, 2004 version.

For some weeks I've started getting the message : "To improve video quality, you may need to install Microsoft's Media Feature Pack". Since then I've had problems playing videos.

I tried everything that I thought of : running FF in safe mode, without addons, I reset it and tried it without anything installed. Added the account again. Nothing. I tried to install the Microsoft Media Feature Pack, but there isn't anything for windows 10 2004 edition. Any solution for this ? PS : I have other systems, a laptop and a desktop, which run the same FF version, with different windows 10 versions, 1903 and 2004, and the videos are working with any problems.

I'm a fairly recent convert to T'bird & but have successfully added several email a/c, all set to save p/w. However, occasionally, I am still asked to enter a p/w. Not a problem, but at 73, I am prone to the odd lapse & enter it incorrectly. The options I then get have me stumped - 3 choices: Retry/Enter New P'word/Cancel (sometimes for more than one a/c at same time). Clearly 'cancel' solves nothing - merely makes window disappear. And I don't need/want to change the p/w (cos I do know them, well sort of...). So 'Retry' the obvious choice, expectation being a new window will pop up in which to insert the correct p/w. BUT, nooo... it simply 'does what it says on the tin' - retries the incorrect p/w I just entered! Which invokes same 'incorrect p/w, Retry/New/Cancel' loop. I can't seem to find any way out of this loop apart from getting a fresh invite to enter p/w by exiting/restarting T'bird- am I missing s'thing/is this really just the way it is (err, why - isn't stupidity defined as doing the same thing over & over and expecting a different result...?)/is there something else I can/should do?

I have a bunch of email subfolders showing up in Thunderbird which have nothing in them. Their names appear in italic, greyed-out. No matter how many times I delete them, when I reopen Thunderbird they've just reappeared in their previous location. This includes three in the Deleted folder.

I'm using IMAP and the phantom folders are not there in my provider's webmail interface, so it must be a local problem.

I know from internet search that lots of people have had this. Solutions elsewhere that I've already tried and that didn't work:

- unsubscribing from the folders: they appear in the subscribed list but without any checkbox next to them - deleting the .msf, panacea, etc. files: the folders reappear just the same after doing this

Has anyone found a fix that works? This is my work email account and the clutter in my folder pane is really unhelpful!

Hi, when I type the body of a URL in the search bar without the .com suffix (i.e. "gmail"), Firefox no longer guesses my intent and takes me to the site.

Now weird things happen, either it doesn't go anywhere just spins, or takes me to my default search engine, or takes me to my ISP's search page.

Seems like that feature used to work.

Using the latest version of Thunderbird (68.4.2) on Windows 10 (Version 1903). I have tried deleting the password and re-entering the the one that still works accessing GMail on the web (Using Firefox) as well as creating a new one. Nothing works

Other info: The error message that I get on Thunderbird says "Sending of password for user ........ did not succeed. Mail server pop gmail.com responded: Username and password not accepted"

When I click "OK" I get "Login to server Popgmail.com with username' ........ failed." With 3 choices: Retry, Enter new password, Cancel. I've tried each and, of course, none works.

I am unable to log into any web sites that need the user. The web site keeps asking for my password which is fine except that up until last Friday (June 26th) the web site would recognize me as a valid user and I could go straight in. I just tested it on Microsoft Edge and the web sites are recognizing me. I cleared the Firefox cache last Friday and it probably has something to do with it. Is there a way to fix this? I'd prefer not to use Edge.

It's been a lot of time now since I've been having problems when opening some web pages using Firefox. When I try to open any of them, the page starts loading but immediately stops and nothing else happens. I've tryed a lot of solutions but they never worked and the problem they were supposed to solve didn't matched completely with my problem. I would like to fix this without reinstalling Firefox if its possible, so that's for me the last resource to use with this issue.

Thanks.

Hello,

I have been asked to upgrade our Firefox ESR in our VDI from 32bit to 64bit. We are using Window server 2012R2.

When I uninstall 32bit and install 64bit I dont get any errors and the program runs, but if I try to go to any website I dont get any page or error message. If I do a search in the URL Bar it does give you the end URL for the search engine, but we dont see anything. I have uninstalled the program, removed AppDATA folders, ProgramDATA and Reg keys related to Mozilla, but still get the same result. If I use another user account I get the same issues.

Could some recommend a fix ?

I run Thunderbird on a laptop and two desktops. Regardless of how many devices I use to access my email account(s), I would like to sync the Filters and the Junk Control settings across devices. Ideally I would be able to pick-and-choose all of my settings to sync across devices. Is there a way to sync Filters? How about Junk Controls? Also, is there a way to sync these on one machine across multiple accounts?

Hello all,

I have a very strange problem and I need help like anything.

My system is Mint 19.2 based on Ubuntu 18.04. I was using a Ricoh Printer model SP 111. I was able to print from this printer using any app like LibreOffice or Adobe Reader. But intermittently a problem occur. Whenever I send a print from any app to this printer this only pass a single blank page. The strange thing is that during the problem too I am able to print any document from firefox. Though i am able to print only 2-3 pages correctly from firefox. If i give more than 4-5 pages it may be passing only second page to printer.

Can anyone please help me short out this problem so that I be able to print from other applications too.

One thing may help me if I know how firefox send prints to this printer and what method firefox use to send print to this printer.

I am using https://github.com/madlynx/ricoh-sp100 community driver for this printer Ricoh SP 111.
