Since I changed ISP to BT full fibre (yesterday) I am unable to send emails using Tbird. (Receiving is OK) I have two email addresses, a gmail and one from my previous ISP provider (plusnet) I have spoken to both providers who say there should not be a problem! After lots of different tests I have established that: Gmail address will work if I provide access for less secure apps (Not good) Plusnet address refuses to send - I get attached message after repeated requests to enter password. I also attach SMTP settings which I have double checked. I have also tested reducing the minimum security level to 1 as suggested in advice but that did not work. I strongly suspect that this is an issue with the change of ISP provider as that is the only thing to have changed. Help please as I am going round in circles. PS using version 78.14 (32 bit) PPS I can send when using web based mail instead of Thunderbird

Problem converting from POP3 to IMAP mail

To whom it may concern,

I'm trying to change access to my Gmail account from POP to IMAP per instructions at http://kb.mozillazine.org/Convert_a_POP_account_to_a_IMAP_account AND NOT SUCCEEDING.

In the past, although I used only POP3 mail, the Gmail server settings showed both POP and IMAP enabled. I don't understand why, but it worked for years. However in recent weeks POP download has become increasingly intermittent (usually zero) and despite a couple weeks' assistance from both the Thunderbird and Gmail user groups, no solution could be found. Since it would be convenient to be able to access mail via multiple devices, I'm willing to convert to IMAP to escape from this download problem, and store mail locally if needed on this Win 10 laptop as I did with POP.

As part of this effort I have disabled POP at the server, although Thunderbird still shows a POP download account.

But...

I am hung up at the step that says: Create the IMAP account using Tools -> Account Settings -> Account Actions -> Add Account

When I attempt to do this, two things happen: (1) A Google page appears, requesting that I log in to my Google account. But it doesn't accept my Gmail address. (2) Meanwhile the Thunderbird Account Setup page displays a notice: "Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password."

This makes no sense to me. POP is now disabled at the server, and IMAP is enabled. At some point during multiple loops through this process I managed to delete my Thunderbird POP3 server account, with the result that all my several hundred email folders disappeared. Fortunately I had backed up the Thunderbird profile prior to starting on what I mistakenly thought would be a reasonably straightforward process. That allowed me to restore my email to the Local Folders; it took a few hours but worked. From reading your articles it appears this makes them safe from server changes.

I have subsequently restored my Thunderbird POP3 incoming mail setting, but it really doesn't matter because the Gmail server won't download my mail.

It seems that the next challenge is finding a way to convert the Server setting in Thunderbird from POP to IMAP. I can't get past this issue where Google appears not to recognize my Gmail address, thus the IMAP server linkage can't be created. I am basically 100% certain that there is no problem with my Google/Gmail account. So I could definitely use some assistance. After several weeks now, having to read my email on the Gmail website is getting really old.

Firefox Beta and earlier have a square box on upper right to go from maximized screen to normal screen.Now, double clicking on the top bar does the latter, but that box is missing in NIghtly.

As a result, Nightly has become unusable. I early await the fix.

No New Messages Despite Messages on SMTP server I host on my LAN

I noticed I wasn't getting emails today. So I checked mail, no new messages. I use a combination of a forward MX that will store and forward mail to my SMTP server behind a VPN for when my SMTP server is unavailable.

I control both client and server. This is the first time where the VPN itself is working fine and my mail forwarder is delivering just fine to my SMTP server.

The problem is... Thunderbird says 'no new messages on server' which proves that authentication works just fine. I can look on the server, tail my mail file and see new messages that are not in Thunderbird. And yet, despite sending myself new mail, thunderbird just dumbly comes back with 'no new messages on server.'

I do have leave messages on server ticked, fwiw; however, I've only had issues when the upstream mail isn't being delivered to my SMTP server.

I've tried an older solution, moving the mail index file; however, that didn't do the trick (did rebuild the index, but didn't trigger download of new messages). Nothing has changed. I even fired up my Desktop and tried downloading mail there despite needing to merge inboxes and it did the same thing... no new messages. I ended up upgrading Thunderbird from 78 (which was working fine the last few days, btw) to whatever version it is now (91? 92?).

I do not have a webmail ui to try to find a malformed message (and I'm sure that message is long passed as, unfortunately, I have a 2gb+ mail file at this point in /var, long story). I may be able to pinpoint it based on the actual dates when the last email was received in my inbox (and combing thru the 2gb+ server's mail file).

It's vital that my mail client can actually download email. I have no idea why it's not working; also tried tls.min 1 and tls.min 0 as well as enable legacy flags in options to no avail just in case.

HELP! I've used Thunderbird for a long time (since 2006, maybe earlier) but this is the first time I have ever had a client-related problem downloading over pop3. I use courier as my pop server and purposefully do not advertise or listen (or port forward) on the internet. So it's just local LAN traffic or via ssh tunnel/port forwarding.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

It seems like perhaps Tbird is confused as to what it last downloaded and is now not triggering new mail pulls. IT could, naturally, be something on the mail server regarding the inbox there. I don't really use any other accounts, but I suppose I could try setting a test up.

I can send mail just fine via the same SMTP server that receives mail for the client, so it appears mostly isolated to pop/thunderbird.

Hoping someone here knows what to do to get it to try to pull mail again.

I just upgraded to the newest version of Firefox for Android however the downloader does not work for certain sites such as Brighton.com. not one video downloader that Mozilla offers works for Android not one I've tried all of them. So I downloaded an exe file so I can download some videos to watch offline and lo and behold Firefox won't let me open it this is ridiculous and I realize you guys are volunteers if you know anybody and supervisory positions and Mozilla let's start a position to fire every one of them and get somebody in there that's confident that can run a website where you can do things that you normally used to do this is ridiculous they offer add-ons that don't work and then they block you from putting the exe files on your phone so you can download a video. I give up to hell with Firefox Google all of them I'm going to Linux this is ridiculous ever since Firefox merged with Google they have become just as big a tyrant as Google y'all have a wonderful day and thanks for letting me vent you know time is a precious commodity you can never get it back only God can give time and I've wasted over an hour tonight trying to download one damn video and Firefox blocks me every way they can I'm done good riddance Mozilla

I have 2 accounts on Thunderbird that lost their servers. There was a hosting service that don't exist anymore, so I only have locally stored emails in Inbox for those 2 accounts. Because of this I keep getting error messages like "Unable to connect to server ....". I would like to keep all the emails I have from this accounts but to delete the accounts so that Thunderbird can stop trying to connect to unexciting server and I have Cleaner Inbox list.

I tried selecting all emails from Inbox in one of accounts and archive it but the Archive button don't do anything.

Any idea how to solve this?

I use Google Calendar on my PC, my Android phone, and even my Kindle Fire. Problem appears only on my pc when using Google Calendar in Firefox (when I use Chrome, everything is fine). In two months (so far, Oct 2021 and January 2022) NO EVENTS SHOW UP. If I enter an event in either of these months, it will show in Chrome, my android, and Kindle. BUT those 2 months are completely blank when using calendar in Firefox. Clearing cache, disabling Adblock for the calendar page(s), reloading has not helped. I would really appreciate any possible solutions/help. Thank you

Hi! so I installed Kubuntu 20.10 after using it 'directly from the cd' for some time. since, all data would be lost every time i restart, i would keep a copy of a '.mozilla' file i would find in the system. Everytime i start the OS, i would first create a folder and copy paste it, so firefox would start right where i left it off. this worked, until i decided to make Kubuntu permanent. at first things were going good, but after sometime, my OS would stop recognizing my headphones and audio port completely. at first i blamed it on my OS and went about doing somethings here and there to adjust by. but looking back, i had installed some DRM to play some video on the net. so in a desperate fix, i replaced the current .mozilla file with a backup i had. the thing worked like a charm and my audio was fixed and everything was going ok, except for the occasional fixes so that my OS would channel the audio to the right output. that is, until the problem rise again! this time, i hadn't installed anything like i did previously, so i replaced the .mozilla file again and it worked! but i can't keep doing this and i had also faced the same problem in my windows, resulting my change in OS in the first place (I think its the same issue, because whatever i did didn't fix it and windows is more sophisticated that i wouldn't know). I don't know if this much info is too much or too less or that if i should post this here or in any other forums, but i would really appreciate it if i got a solution! Thankyou!
