I am getting to the end of my tether with Firefox. I have used it for years but the increasing issues are driving me to distraction.

It will not display comments on the Daily Mail UK website, The Telegraph UK site and the screen is scrambled if I try to use Ebay Philippines. I am not a computer expert but I have tried to follow other peoples suggestions with no luck.

I cant see the point of persisting with FireFox unless these issues are rectified.

Any suggestions would be very welcome.

ive built a new pc and have a flashing program popup every 10min. upon assistance from a really good pc guy, we've found its a firefox default browser agent with a long code.

its not listed in my scheduled tasks, eyt runs every 10min. only thing close to firefox would be thrunderbird, but iirc, mozilla and thunderbird are not longer the same company. either way. i need this thing to stop running every 10min.

Thunderbird 115.10.1 (64-bit), no extensions or add-ons Ubuntu 23.10, AMD64 Earthlink ISP and email

Start Thunderbird, go to Drafts folder, open email, click Send, get Send Message Error (see error.jpg) in about two seconds.

There is no request for password, I do not save any passwords. When I Get Messages, a password is requested and I receive the messages. If I try to send after getting messages, same error.

Thunderbird settings are as Earthlink specifies for POP3:

 https://help.earthlink.net/portal/en/kb/articles/email-server-settings

See smtp.jpg. Earthlink user support said to use "Authentication method: Encrypted password". Have also tried "Authentication method: Normal password", got similar error message.

The last time I successfully sent a message was a year ago, this is the first time trying to send since then. There have been OS and Thunderbird updates in between, probably some Earthlink changes too.

Hello, I would be grateful for help onm the two following problems in Thunderbird. 1. When someone sends me a web page link, I click on it and get the error message 0x80070057. I have tried the suggested solutions in regedit but it does not work. 2. When I buy something on ebay they send me an email confirmation with a picture of the item purchased. When I go to print it the image disappears.

I am losing what hair that I have left as I am a senior citizen.

many thanks in anticipation. kr David

Black car key shaped 'blob' appearing in PDF preview

Hi folks

When viewing some [not 'all'] PDFs I've created via T'bird's inbult PDF preview on my W10 Desktop PC an annoying black blob in the shape of a car key now appears on the PDF's pages from page 2 onwards. When viewing the same file via an iOS device or inside Dropbox there is no black blob. Also, when viewing the same file via the full Adobe Acrobat APP on my W10 Desktop PC there is no black blob. This black key-shape blob only shows inside T'bird's inbuilt PDF previewer.

I know how to change the preview function inside Tbird to instead open any PDF in Acrobat, but as I quite like the T'bird PDF preview feature does anyone know why these black keys are appearing and how to get rid of them?

Further info: The only PDFs with the black blobs are those created via my W10 Desktop PC's PowerPoint APP's "Save as Adobe PDF" function. There is no such black blob on the PowerPoint pages themselves, and again no blobs appear when viewing the new PDF on any iOS device or within Dropbox. Additonally, and since writing the above lines, I have emailed the PDF to a friend who has opened it on his W10 Laptop and there are NO [again, NONE] black blobs on his screen [he uses Outlook as his email handler]. Thus, I feel certain the problem is within T'bird's PDF preview code.

Is there any fix for this?

Thanks.

I have created a filter to forward and email as soon as the message comes in. I does not do the auto-forwarding but will do if I click Run now.

I had to reinstall TB due to the fact that for years my mail server was Cox who recently decided to get out of email business and transferred all my messages to Yahoo. The transition has not been going smoothly. Image attached.

My email server changed recently from one IMAP server to another. Since the change, Thunderbird keeps marking some messages as Unread. Often these are old messages, reveived weeks or months ago and definitely have been read. The process appears to be random: I laboriously work through multiple folders, marking them as Folder Read. Only to find, next time I open Thunderbird, that there is a new set of messages and folders flagged as Unread. In Settings I have 'Automatically mark messages as read - Immediately on display' checked, which is the desired and normal behaviour. I'm stumped!

I've been using T-Bird for about 15 years, or more. On May 8th it stopped working - unable to receive or send e-mail. I'm using T-Bird 115.10.2 (64-bit) and I've been running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit since 2012, and have no intention of upgrading to a new OS. If I do upgrade to a new OS, it will probably be the latest Mint Linux, as I installed an earlier version of Mint a few years ago to check it out as an alternative to Windows.

I have a 3.2GB AMD CPU and 16 GB RAM. Luckily I can access & use my AT&T Mail at currently.com, but I like T-Bird a lot better. T-Bird has essentially worked flawlessly for me all of these years - until now.

I have re-set my AT&T Mail password 2 times and also tried my AT&T Mail's "Secure Mail Key" from 2020, which is supposed to "never expire" - to no avail! T-Bird does not like any of these Passwords.

So it appears to me that T-Bird is now dead.

And so I am looking around for the best new e-mail client to use.

I am reluctant to try uninstalling T-Bird and re-installing it, out of fear that I'll lose all of my T-Bird data (folders, files, settings, etc.).

Also, I just found a recent article that claims that T-Bird will no longer work with Windows 7 after "late 2024." So I wonder, if the Thunderbird team has already euthanized T-Bird.

I shall greatly appreciate it if you can help bring my T-Bird back to life.

Thank you very much!

I have a company email account on Office 365. I have to use it and I want to use Thunderbird for it. The account has sso that uses okta.

Thunderbird correctly identifies that the account is available on outlook.office365.com and pops up a window to complete the oauth flow. The oauth window does not display anything. If I copy the url from the window to my browser then I can complete the oauth flow easily. It fails when it ends with a "localhost" url which thunderbird presumably intercepts.

I cannot paste the final URL into thunderbird. I am thus unable to complete the oauth flow.

Missing 'Sent' folder Thunderbird 115.10.2 (64 bit) Mac

Hi there,

I have Thunderbird 115.10.2 (64 bit) on my Macbook Pro running OS High Sierra 10.13.6.

The "Sent" list of folders is missing one of my Email address folders. But further down the folders column, there are folders with lock icons and the 'Sent' folder is visible in Email address in question's folder (photo attached). Similarly, the "Drafts" folder is missing the Email address's drafts folder.

I've tried the following to fix the "Sent" folder problem:

1) Account Settings -> Copies and Folders -> checked "Place a copy in:" -> "Other" -> [correctly selected address here in dropdown menu] -> Sent. Then I quit and restarted TB. Nothing happened, and the folder did not show up in the list.

2) I tried changing the Security Settings from SSL/TLS to STARTTLS, then restarted TB. That did not fix the problem.

I haven't tried fixing the 'Drafts' folder yet, but I hope you are able to help me restore the missing folders.

Thank you in advance.

When trying to configure my gmx.com email with Thunderbird I get this message when trying to create a new account.

Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 ▲ (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsIMsgAccountManager.createIncomingServer]

I have set the email up many times before just never with Thunderbird on a Linux setup so I am not too sure what would be causing this, trying to find help for this I come across the same issue with varying differences. At first I thought it maybe my firewall but I disabled it and tried again and still same error. Any help much appreciated.
