I have been using ~10 email accounts in thunderbird for years now, ~8 are gmail and recently one of them wanted me to re-authenticate. Every one of the gmail accounts is configured in the same way; I'm using SSL/TLS with Oauth2.

So when I open TB, I get a popup screen for me to log into gmail with the addy pre-entered. I hit next and I am returned to the same page with the email blank. I dont get asked for password, i don't get told that it's an invalid email or that the account doesn't exist. I'm stuck in an endless loop.

I can log into the account through a web browser and dont get any notifications of issues or concerning access attempts. The other 7 gmail accounts continue to work. How do I fix this?

Upgrade 32 bit on old pc to 64 bit first? Could use a suggestion. Looks like 78.14.0 shows as the current upgrade when I check. Could use a suggestion or three. Thanks

Hi,

It is impossible to access Thunderbird v91.1 (x64 - Win7) settings. Thunderbird freezes, consumes all available RAM and crashes every other time. When it doesn't crash, the certificates are not manageable. Thunderbird starts consuming all the RAM again and doesn't respond anymore...

Thunderbird behaves the same way with the "general" settings. This problem has existed since the upgrade to version 91.

I have one email address in regular use: xxxxxx@ntlworld.com. I have had two other email addresses in the past (both gmail.com), neither of which has been used for at least a couple of years. But for the last several weeks, I have been getting repeated popup pages from Thunderbird nearly full screen interrupting anything else I am doing asking me to sign into my Google account using one of the redundant addresses. If I ignore this and close the window, it pops up again a few seconds later. If I log in as requested, it is replaced by another page requesting permission for Mozilla Thunderbird to "Read, compose, send, and permanently delete all your email from Gmail". This I have denied as it seems an unwarranted intrusion. But the requests for login using the redundant address continue every few seconds. How can I prevent this, and allow the redundant email address to rest in peace? Or, how can I delete the redundant addresses permanently? I'm using Thunderbird 91.2.1

I've had an issue with Thunderbird where anytime I try and access the Preferences (Tools > Preferences (Options), my memory spikes to 90%+ usage (5GB ram) and doesnt respond.

It's really strange, everything else works fine. Browsing the inbox, viewing / sending emails, the account settings works, I can add / remove accounts but anytime I go to the Preferences, it doesnt respond and Memory climbs to 5GB used (see attached image).

Thunderbird on the inbox idles at 600MB

Going to safe mode allows me to edit the settings just fine, it is just when in normal mode where it spikes.

Thunderbird is on the latest version (91.1.2) (64bit) and the PC is up to date on Windows and has been restarted since occurring.

I have used and loved Thunderbird email app for years, but the updated version 91.2.1, (on iMac with Mojave), the Folder pane is now dark gray with black print so I can hardly read the folder names (see photo), also the drop downs (i.e. Tags) are gray and no long show the list of Tags in the colors assigned though tagged emails are colored properly. Please tell me this is not a new "feature"! Hopefully it will be corrected soon? Thanks!

Hello, I had accidentally opened a shortened url link from my messages in firefox android, but I received a deceptive website warning in a red background page either from google or firefox, before I could read the whole message I panic closed the app, disconnected from the internet, deleted all my firefox data (history,cache,etc,.). I am unsure if my android device is infected in any way, Am I right in saying the harmful page never actually opened because I received a warning before it could? does that mean my device is safe? will running a malwarebytes android scan suffice? or do I need to factory reset my device? Thank you.

After updating to version 94.0b9, the program began to slow down terribly. This is especially pronounced on YouTube: you select a search, enter a request, open two or three tabs from the proposed one with a possibly useful video ... That's it! You can go to a cafe for coffee and rolls. It became impossible to use the browser.

How to roll back to the previous version of the program?

Hi, In these last days, I deleted a bookmark folder or something by error. Then I found some daily backups, and I restored from the last one backup.

The next issue was that the following daily backups have less bookmarks, and doing some testing, it appears the Daily backups, now, are not including "Other Bookmarks".

It has less entries from now on.

I want to know if there is a bug, or something changed by itself. How can I fix that?

Hi there,

A while ago a new thing started happening with Firefox. Whenever I go to a login page, and the username and password fields are auto populated because Firefox has remembered them, the cursor is positioned at the end of the username. Directly beneath the cursor is what looks like a droplet, blue in colour. Clicking on it does nothing. Clicking anywhere else on the page makes the droplet disappear, as does bringing up another app and then coming back to Firefox. I am using version 93.0 64 bit on Windows 10. I can't do a screen shot of it as bringing up snip and sketch causes it to disappear.

Thanks for your help,

Paul

Mail will not open on Thunderbird after successfully installed it on my new iPAD. Thuderbird icon appears on home window of the iPAD; it has a 63 on it, showing messages to be viewed. When I click on that icon a window opens: at top of that window is ACCOUNT ADDED. Below that is MAIL. The control tab for that Icon is in the open position (i.e., slid to right showing green on left). When I click on that MAIL, nothing happens. Also, on the window with Mail, are three other options: Contacts, Calendars, and Notes. Mail and Contacts are the two that show they are in open status. Calendars and notes is in the closed position.

I was having problems with the previous Thunderbird version, 91.2.0, so I started using the beta. When 91.2.1 was released I uninstalled the beta and installed 91.2.1. When I tried to load Thunderbird I got a message that I needed to create a new profile. I uninstalled 91.2.1 and tried to go back to the beta so I could check the settings and do a smooth migration, but I got the same message saying I need to create a new profile. I then uninstalled the beta and went back to 91.2.1, and tried to create a new profile but I'm stuck. Attempting to create a new profile didn’t fix anything, I’m still locked out and there is no option to access my old profile. I also don't know what the old settings were since I haven't had to look at them or change them in years. I have been reading through the support files, but all they do is describe the issue I’m having without offering an actual fix. One of the articles titled, “Dedicated profile per Thunderbird installation” at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/dedicated-profile-thunderbird-installation says, “Downgrade protection can be overridden by launching Thunderbird through the command line with the --allow-downgrade parameter.” But when I click the link it says, “Page not found” https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Command_Line_Options I only use Thunderbird for newsgroups. How can I load the new version of Thunderbird and access my previous settings or transfer them to a new install?

When I go to Truist.com, my recently merged bank, it remembers my userid OK, but fills in the password field with about 200 random ASCII characters. I tried to delete and re-establish the saved password, but Firefox either gets messes it up or more likely the web site messes it up. The result is that the true saved password in lost and the ASCII rubbish re-appears.

Work-around is to not let Firefox save the password for this site. It works A-OK with the other 150 or so passwords. Check out the screen shot attached.

Luv Firefox, even donate once in a while.

Thank you,
