I have a weird issue. I currently have 3 emails addresses - a hotmail account, a gmail account and an outlook.office365.com account. All three send and receive correctly from both my phone (Galaxy note 9) and my laptop Thunderbird.

Where the issue comes is when I send from the phone using the outlook.office365 account the emails DO NOT show in the TB sent folder on the laptop - both other accounts do show correctly.

I have also installed outlook and mailbird on the laptop and the same email that is sent from the phone shows correctly in their respective sent folders - it is only TB and the outlook.office365.com account that are the issue.

I have completely uninstalled TB and removed any trace of the profiles and any other data and reinstalled and still the same issue. In TB account settings/copies & folders I have checked other and selected a different folder as a sent folder. The issue continues - yet outlook and mailbird show the the phone sent emails. I have also tried three different email apps on the phone - same issue.

The problem is that the outlook.office365 is my primary business account and not having a record of what I have sent from the phone has caused some client and staff difficulties.

From all my hours of testing it appears that TB is the issue and I am hoping there is a fix as I truly like TB but currently can't rely on it. Thanks for any help. Bob

Hello.

I'm experiencing some strangeness with the spellcheck on Firefox and would like to know if anyone can help.

I often seem to mistype "don't" as "don;t." Same with "won't." Firefox does not mark these as incorrect. But if I type "shouldn;t" or "couldn;t" I get a red underline.

Is there something I can edit to get those words with a semicolon to be marked as misspelled?

I'm using FF 91 on Win 7. But it's been this way for a long time, many different versions.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I only ever use IMAP mail settings, but today (21st Sep 2021) they've changed in Thunderbird to POP3.

I get the msg "This POP3 server does not seem to support encrypted passwords. If you have just set up this account, please try changing to 'Password, transmitted insecurely' as the 'Authentication method' in the 'Account Settings | Server settings'. If it used to work and now suddenly fails, this is a common scenario how someone could steal your password" Thunderbird is up to date. Please does anyone know how I can change them back without having to delete them first? As they're now POP I'm not sure if the emails will be deleted if I delete the accounts, Thanks for any help!

Thunderbird Address Book issues (sharing and diferent versions)

I have been using T-bird 26 for years, but needed to upgrade for some reason, so on one computer only (I have 3,) I went straight to V91. The other two are still using V26, and I don't want to upgrade them till I get the bugs worked out of 91.

In the past I was able to share my eight address books across the computers by making a folder in My Documents called MyAddressBooks, then use Mega to synchronize the computers.

Then, I created some windows links to point the various .mab filenames in my T-bird profile to the sync'd files. (I had to make a separate link for each of my 8 address books. abook.mab, abook-1.mab, etc...)

This does not seem to work with V91. I created the links but V91 doesn't recognize the new address books.

As a test, I created a new address book (in V91) then found 3 new files in my profile called abook-1.sqlite, abook-1.sqlite-shm, and abook-1.sqlite-wal.


So, a couple of questions...

1) Did the name of the address book change from a .mab file to several sqlite files?

2) Am I safe to upgrade the other 2 computers to V91, then create links to all the new file names? I guess there will be 24 links I need to create now. Eight wasn't enough.


And some comments...

Why the hell was it necessary to go through all these hoops to simply share an address book across computers?

Why can't I tell T-Bird where my address books are located, and why did they force me to place them in my profile folder?

What advantages does it serve to go from a .mab file to a .sqlite file? (I assume the reason for this was to use a different database manager for the address books? Seems to me the old one worked just fine.)

Why call them abook-1 and abook-2, not simply use the name the user call's it when he creates it?

Thanks Mark.

Only displaying drafts folder

Today I've been getting Thunderbird to work with a DreamHost email address. It's now connected but I couldn't find drafts. I would write a draft and then it didn't show up. I read I should set View > Folders > All, and it was like that, but I couldn't see drafts anywhere.

So after some struggle I figured I had to set it up to store the drafts on a local folder. I tried to set that but it kept changing back to storing it on my DreamHost mail folder online. That doesn't work for me, I haven't signed into that for years, it just forwards to my gmail. It would be a pain in the butt to have to sign into that, it's why I set up Thunderbird. I thought, maybe getting files to and from DreamHost is just super slow.

So I tried setting the Local Folders to a folder I could reach, by making a thunderbird folder in my Documents folder, since by this time I thought maybe I'd need to open them manually or something, I was getting really confused. Everything was gone once I closed it and I didn't know where it was supposed to be, so I was just randomly guessing by this time. After a while that worked. Sort of.

Sadly, I couldn't tell you how I got here, but now Thunderbird's first tab is showing the drafts folder. I click 'Get Messages', and go down in the menu to specify to do so from the email address I set this up for, and nothing happens. I create an email and save it as a draft, and it shows up in the messages list. (Oh, was that what was supposed to happen all along? That makes sense!) Except if I close Thunderbird and open it again, the draft is gone. And that's all I get, a tab for my dysfunctional Drafts folder.

I'm on Ubuntu 20.04.3 and it's up to date.

Please send help. How can I get out of this royal mess? Thank you

I have just set up Thunderbird for the first time as a client for my e-mail on domain mozart.co.uk

It is seeing the received mail fine. But when I send an e-mail (as a reply or a new mail) I get a window "Sending message" with a progress bar. As it reaches the end I get an error message (every time):

"Sending of the message failed. The message could not be sent because the connection to Outgoing server (SMTP) mozart.co.uk was lost in the middle of the transaction. Try again."

Can anyone tell me what I have to do?

(Hope this can be fixed as, apart from this, I really like the program!)

Systems: MacMini (2018) running Mojave 10.14.6 Windows 10 Pro v20H2, build 19042.1165, experience pack 120.2212.3530.0

Ever since FF v89 when I go into FF Settings in either system none of the options I have selected display an 'X' in that option's checkbox. In previous versions when I clicked in an option's checkbox an 'X' would appear and disappear when clicked again.

No more.

I've tried changing the theme to Dark, Light, System . . . no change to this issue in either my Mac or pc: I cannot see an 'X' in any option's checkbox in FF Settings.

Please see attached screenshots. They are with "Dark" theme, but its the same no matter what theme I choose.

How to get my Settings choices to show that I have checked off this or that option?

Solution??

Hi, Using Firefox 92.0.1. On a AMD 5900x with an Nvidia 3090. Nvidia driver 471.68. Hardware decoding doesn't seem to be working correctly on any website. I noticed this as when I adjust video colours and 'edge enhancement' in the Nvidia control panel it has no effect in Firefox but it works in Chrome and Edge. Simply sliding the colour down to black and white for example doesn't work. In task manager GPU video decode is sometimes used, other times no utilisation. Even if it's showing GPU decode being used the colours or Nvidia enhancements do not apply as they do in Edge or Chrome. I tried refreshing Firefox and no change. Is this the intended behaviour or is there a long running bug as a friend also has the same outcome? Thanks

After my wife recently passed, I closed her email account. She, as I, had been using Thunderbird and I have her profile and all of the email files. I want to add an email account to TB so I can read these emails as they contain information pertaining to the charity we support. TB will NOT create an account without an active email to which it can connect. I need a way to add a "dead" account using her profile and email files but without reopening the original email account for which there would be a fee.

It would be great if TB would allow this but I've tried several approaches and none work but then I may have been doing it wrong.

Suggestions would be appreciated.

Sorry, I wasn't sure which topic this question fell under. I created my Firefox account in 2017 and have forgotten my Password. However, since creating my account in 2017, I've NEVER SIGNED OUT. Until I hopefully remember my password, I don't plan too.

Question - If I am signed into my Firefox account, as I have been since 2017, and get to a point (when updating or changing my settings, add-ons, etc) where it asks me to re-enter my Password, is there a set number of password sign in attempts before it locks me out? And, if it locks me out after so many incorrect attempts, does it also sign me out of Firefox as well OR do I stay signed in? Hopefully I explained my question.

I really don't want to lose my data with Password reset, so I'm trying find ways help me recall my correct Password. Thanks for any info. Kurt
