Ok so just updated Thunderbird to the latest version. Now not receiving emails. All the settings are correct. I have all my old emails just not receiving any new ones. I’m still receiving emails through to my iPhone so there is nothing wrong with the email server.

I tried removing an email address and re-adding it but now it won’t download any old messages and still won’t receive any new emails.

Any ideas? Thanks.

I have used Firefox for many years now and love it and keep telling my friends and colleagues to switch to this browser rather than Google Chrome.. There is something that happens irregularly with my 'pinned tabs', every now and again when I close Firefox the next time I open it up, they are all gone. I go through history and replace them and 'Pin' them and its all fine for a while then it happens again. Most recently - in the last two days it has happened twice, it takes some time for me to restore the tabs and pin them, then I have gone into 'Options' and I have set the box (ticked it) for 'Restore previous session' but its not happening. Also when I go to the 'three bars' up on the top ribbon on the far right the option to 'Restore previous session' simply isn't there! I have no idea what is happening but its very frustrating and I would really appreciate some answer as to what might possibly be going on? Many thanks for your time, much appreciate and love your work everyone.

Have been using Thunderbird with the same email profile over the years but after Thunderbird upgraded to 78.2.2 when I started it today, it failed to download any new emails from server. I checked the account profile and the details are still correct. When clicked on Get Messages, the message: connected to <myemailserverdomain> appeared and then the message disappeared without moving on to downloading (no status bar). I checked my email account through the web portal and there are definitely new emails there. Please help!

Regards, Anthony

Version 78.2.2 is not working in IMAP. Somehow one person in my office had their Thunderbird auto update to Ver 78.2.2 and when it did, she was no longer able to send or receive emails. I had to do a system restore on her entire computer to roll back to a previous version. I accidentally updated mine to Ver 78.2.2 when I clicked "About" to find my version. But since mine is set-up as POP3 account, it did not disable my send/receive abilities. At least I believe that is why mine still worked after the update and hers did not.

Also, I completely dislike the folder tree on the left side of the screen. It used to have easy to recognize folder icons. Now all the folders are static outlines of a folder. And to make it worse, the folder icon is bolder than the text info, so those folder icons kind of glare at you. If you are going to minimize the folder appearance by removing the manila coloring, at least do not use a bold outline of a folder. Also, I would prefer when using the option to add a color to a folder that the color be a fill as they were in Ver68, rather than a stroke in Ver 78.

I've attached screen shots from two different computers so you can see the difference between the two version trees and appearance.

Additionally, I noticed at the bottom of the open email on Ver 78, this message: "Quick Reply is temporarily disabled due to needing rewriting for Thunderbird 68+."

I used to have a delete shortcut on the menu bar, when I try to add it from customize it is grayed out and not letting me use it.

It would be nice if I could roll back my version of Thunderbird to a previous one without having to do an entire system restore of my computer.

However, there are some things I like better, conversational view is great in that it shows what folders the rest of the conversation resides in. Some of the things I used to have to go to the task bar for are right there in the email, like source and header views. There might be other things that might make it more useful. Will know more as I use it for a few days/weeks.

Thunderbird automatically updated to 78 - how to roll back for features of the Nostalgy addon

My TB just updated automatically to version 78, despite it saying on your release notes (https://www.thunderbird.net/en-US/thunderbird/78.0.1/releasenotes/) that "Thunderbird version 78.0 is only offered as direct download from thunderbird.net and not as an upgrade from Thunderbird version 68 or earlier".

I use (and love) the Nostalgy addon, but this only works with versions 68.0-73.0

Can I roll back to version 73?

Many thanks

Hi,

today, I got the upgrade to Firefox for Android 79. There were several changes I noticed but didn't pay any attention to it. Many changes aren't important to me, some changes showed their importance only after I read some responses to this upgrade.

First and foremost: I miss the feature to gather links in the background and open them when I switch to Firefox. For me that's almost a dealbreaker as this was the feature that made me switch from Chrome to Firefox. Are there any plans to get "Open URLs in background" back?

A few responses mentioned that now we were unable to resort the list of open tabs. The tab list is not my favorite but I could live with it (the option to change it to tiles would be nice, though). But there are always situations when I want to reorder my tabs. Are there any plans to reintroduce tab sorting?

In respect to other missing features: Are there any plans to reintroduce them? Where can we find your roadmap for Firefox for Android (featurewise, technical details are mostly unimportant for end-users)?

I appreciate all the effort that went into this major overhaul of Firefox for Android. But I really miss a clear and concise communication of the changes, which features will be gone forever and which will be delivered in a later update. Your help articles not being up to date aren't helping either (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/open-links-background-later-viewing-firefox-android). There are some welcome new features in this release and I will give them a try. But I don't need a browser that does everything as all other major browsers. Scrolling through different apps and being able to send URLs to Firefox without losing focus seemed kind of unique to me.

Bests, Masin

I tried version 78. I have four suggestions:

1) Return to the version 68 or earlier icons. The new ones look unnaturally bold and cartoonish when close to bits of text, like labels.

2) Restore the ability to use an add-on implementing a "Get All Message" button, or make it a standard feature.

3) Restore the 68-style entry for cc: and bcc: and the ability to enter more than one of each.

4) In the message view, put "Delete" back on the right.

Why mess with a good thing? Change for the sake of change is rarely productive.

Thank you!

So today I logged onto my pc as usual and I decide to click on Mozilla Firefox to use the search engine, but when it opened, the new tab screen had nothing on it and when I tried to search for something or go on a website through the search bar at the top, nothing happens. All it does is have the website link at the top. I've tried reinstalling Firefox and it hasn't fixed the problem, do any of you know a solution?

Im using ver 80.0.1 (64-bit) with win 10 inspite of my best efforts when opening FF Browser after a few mins, or else whenever I open a second browser page (which I used to do effortlessly) first mini-pic in bottom task bar goes blank, secondly page refuses to open and finally entire window destabilises and then disappears of to top left corner of wallpaper screen never to return, despite fact that task manager reports it as still running. Have removed Adobe Flash in case of conflicts and tried in safe-mode in case of conflicted add-ons. No luck

Thunderbird has not let me sign in for several days – it has not recognized my password. I have been able to use my password to log into my gmail account via google. I’ve closed and reopened Thunderbird several times still it won’t recognize my email address. It has, until today, been updating my incoming emails and showing the emails I’ve sent, directly through gmail in my sent folder. Initially every time I tried to sign in I got this message, “Login to server imap.googlemail.com with username westwaterp@gmail.com failed.” For the past couple of days, I’ve been getting this popup message, “Alert from account westwaterp@gmail.com: Please log in via your web browser: https://support.google.com/mail/accounts/answer/7854 (Failure)" But every time I click on that link, I get a message that says that page doesn’t exist. Can someone please help me? Thank you. pat

What in the name of all things Holy was the team who wrote the update to the Android for Firefox smoking when they posted the newest updates? They took a familiar UI on my tablet and turned it into a study on how to remove any hint of intuitive. It has become a study in ponderous and how to add additional steps to simple activities. For example, there is only one tab visible at a time, and switching between even just two tabs takes an extra step or two..and really, there are no tabs anymore. A separatepop-up window??? Really? That was supposed to be better? Are all the programmers in rehab?

I can understand that, on a phone, simplicity is sometimes required, but the same interface for a tablet is just the most ignorant thing I have seen in my 35+ years of computing. When I was teaching and built a computer lab in a junior high school in the early 80's, the Commodore Vic20s we used were more intuitive than the new Android FF.

The best way to describe the new version would be: "Looks like Mozilla.org if finally trying to rid itself of Android users so they can dump it all together and write it off on their taxes."

The creators of this version should all be sentenced to one year of nothing but Windows 3.0 on a 386 PC with no posobility of parole..

.....I've used This browser for a number of years now with no major issue. Now...it's acting up and I'm incredibly unhappy. I've had issues for 6 weeks +/- now. This is now an ongoing/daily issue and it's causing problems. I'm about to change browsers. (I just updated Firefox to 80.0.1 (64-bit) in the hopes this would fix the problem, it didn't.) .....I started having an issue approximately 7 weeks ago with Firefox, it was working fine before this and had for quite some time. I will be in the middle of doing something and have to pause/shut down/log off the computer and deal with something else. When I come back, sign back in, then open Firefox - the installation has changed it's format to an Eastern European language. [I, personally, don't speak or read any Eastern European languages.] I will go into settings, check the language set up is still in English American, I will click on Language Preferences, add English Canadian, then delete English Canadian, check it's back to English American. Restart the Browser and go back to what I was doing. I'm now doing this 2 to 4 times a day. It's getting old. .....What can I do, not do to fix this issue.
