System: Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS Thunderbird: 78.1.0 64bit version

Description: I used Thunderbird to log in to Google Mail without any problems. But after I changed my Google mailbox password once, I want to use Thunderbird to log in to Google mailbox again. It keeps asking me to enter my Google email address. Every time I clicked on the next step, the email address input field seemed to be emptied. I was still asked to continue to enter the email address without entering the password input or other interface.

First image is before I click the next button, the second image is after i clicked the next button

Got my first smartphone (Android) and now check Gmail with the smartphone AS WELL AS with Thunderbird on my PC. I understand that POP is only suitable for accessing Gmail with one device. So, I understand that I should switch to IMAP for incoming messages. I made the instructed changes to my Gmail settings, but when I go to the Thunderbird settings, there seems to be no way to change the POP3 label in that section of the settings, and I am getting an error message when I try to use Thunderbird (on my PC) to download my messages from Gmail:

An error occurred with the POP3 mail server. Mail server imap.gmail.com responded:

(That is the whole error message -- there is nothing after the colon.)

Thanks for reading and for any suggestions. I like Thunderbird and would like to continue using it.

I want searches to stay in a search engines home page and not go automatically into address box. When I search for anything by writing in the search box on the Google home page search or even Duck Duck Go, the inserted text goes immediately into the address bar. I have tried FF in Safe Mode, I have no studies going, using version of FF 94.0.2 and only have 5 extensions (Last Pass, Bitdefender, BreezeClick, Adobe Acrobat and Malwarebytes.) Thank you

There are several requests similar to mine, mostly about Windows 7 (i have windows 10). I made sure the "general settings" within Adobe were set to use Acrobat as default, and i set firefox options (as near as i could tell) to save my pdf's with Adobe acrobat also. However, ALL my files - both already saved and new pdf's - now are listed as filetype "Firefox HTML.pdf" and all have the html icon. For my husband's business, we have to fill out state forms in pdf and forward copies to them and to clients. My clients are frustrated and confused that they cannot recognize the pdf's i sent by the original icons, and some don't seem to understand how to open the "html" files i send them (most of our clients probably use other browsers: when they showed up as straight adobe files this was never a problem) I need to fix BOTH my stored pdf forms AND new fillable forms from the state as filename.pdf with the adobe icon. PLEASE!!

In Thunderbird's account settings, I select account actions, then "Add mail account". After entering the requested info for my Gmail account and select "Done", a large Google window pops up saying "One Account - All of Google". At this point, I seem to get stuck in a loop that repeatably asks for my email address or phone number. Apparently it's a verification of my login on Gmail. I cannot get beyond this and when i cancel, I get a yellow message bar in Thunderbird stating I have an incorrect user name and/or password. How can I get this resolved? Thanks for any help you can provide. - D. Puls

After reading up on procedures (but failing to follow links), I decided to completely delete all my passwords. Let me back up a minute, last week I downloaded the .csv file of my passwords, because after 10 or 12 years, I needed to clean them up. I had 486 saved passwords, out of which I deleted all but 123. I did not want to try that in the browser, actually I did, but after about 20 I gave up because I realized how long it would take.

So anyway, I got ready to finish up, and I deleted my browser copy, then tried to upload the corrected copy. However every time I get an error "Something went wrong try again". So as my plan was, I deleted my Chrome passwords (they should be the same), then uploaded the corrected copy. It said "Upload successful" or somethiing like that, I waited five minutes, for Chrome to finish syncing and all that, then tried to import from Chrome, it imported 3 passwords.

But now, here's the big problem, I follow the directions I have found in this site, but once I click the hamburger, the next link does not exist. When I go another way, none of the links exist. I have searched all over the settings pages, and nowhere is there the option to upload a .csv file, I can import from another browser all day, but not upload. So what's going on?

Hello, After one of the last updates of november I started having 20-50 processes for each firefox profile that I use. In previous versions I used 'browser.tabs.remote.autostart' and 'browser.tabs.remote.autostart.2' and set them to false, to limit the number of processes. But now, even though I removed these configurations, I have no option to control how much RAM and processes firefox uses - the option to set the content processes is missing from the settings page too. Another thing that I noticed is that for some reason, in most of my profiles, container tabs can't be enabled.

Hope you can help, Rotem.

Opening up firefox last week am a message saying something was wrong/couldn't proceed (I don't remember the exact text). I tried to delete the message, but it just came back every time blocking opening firefox. I tried to restart it, but the same blocking message reappeared. I then uninstalled it and all my files disappeared, of course. I've today reinstalled it, but no history, etc.. How can I get my original web files back? Do you have a 30 day grace period where any file can be restored like the one Microsoft has? Can I get my webfiles back at all? Please help. tmr W10 64bit

Hello! I am using Firefox ESR in Linux Mint 18.3 32-bit. For convenience, a few years ago I've created a start menu (main menu) shortcut to quickly open a Private Browsing window. Before the recent switch from ESR branch 78 to 91 this shortcut was working as intended, but now, it opens a Private Browsing window and a regular browsing window. Here, I've made a short video about this issue that should help to better explain everything https://youtu.be/ccioyh0gJxA https://youtu.be/ccioyh0gJxA To some, this might seem like a non-issue, but I'd like to have a shortcut that would allow me to launch a Private Browsing window and a Private Browsing window alone.

For some reason my gmail account password will not work. It has been working but all mail from rickranum@gmail.com stopped getting into Thunderbird on the 28th I thought I might change it but in my tools there is no option button. All the help I have researched leads through the options option. My password is correct as I can log in to my gmail account in a browser. I restarted the computer. I closed and restarted Thunderbird. I also get this error (see images below).

Whenever I try opening up firefox to use, I am instead faced with a Bing home page. I have tried uninstalling and installing again but it hasn't seemed to have worked. I am presented with a "Network Protocol Error" saying it can't connect to "segoonow.com" which is malware, and seems to be redirecting me to use bing instead of firefox.

How can I fix this? It's troubling and I don't want it stealing my information and continuing to redirect me to a web browser I don't want to use.
