I have Thunderbird 115.8.0 installed on my MacBook Pro with two email accounts, Yahoo and Gmail. I have set up the Tools/Message Filters/Block Filters as well. When I first launch Thunderbird all the spam shows up in my inbox, and just sits there. What I have to do is go to Tools/Message Filters at which point I'm asked to select an account. I select Yahoo (my primary account) and then "Run Filters" before anything actually happens. Then if I go back to my inbox, the spam emails start disappearing. It seems that Thunderbird does not remember the "Yahoo" selection in filters in between launches. Is there a setting I am missing, or is this just the product of having two different email accounts? Thank you.

My Firefox has gotten so buggy lately I can't use it. I'm writing from Edge. THere are numerous issues. The sign in process got messed up a couple months ago. IT asks for email address, then doesn't provide password screen option, takes forever to send email, and then sometimes repeats itself. Tabs crash and clicks fail to work randomly. Out of desperation I reset my Firefox password and that seemed to help temporarily, but not enough. So what's happened and how to fix??? Thanks.

I had to change my gmail pwd due to a possible security breach as reported to me by Experian.

After the change, Tbird flashed this error message upon the next startup (please see image)

After about 20 minutes of poking about, I found where I could change the password for my google account. I changed it to the new password. There is zero chance I got it wrong because I copy/pasted it from my pwd mgr. I still get this error message making T'bird useless to me.

I'm definitely let down that such as simple op as pwd change was so difficult to find and now seems impossible to do. I haven't a CLUE what the STAT command is or how to address this condition.

Any suggestions are greatly welcomed.

After changing passwords at the email provider, it asked for and saved the passwords for the incoming server. It asked for the SMTP password for the first account and saved that (using that username) but did not ask for or save passwords for the other accounts using the same SMTP server.

So... email can be received on three accounts but can be only sent from one. Is there some way to add the passwords?

I cannot find a way to add websites to the location permissions in Firefox Windows PC. I can easily get to the "Location Permissions settings " but there is no way to add, only remove. When I display the access icon in the URL address bar, it shows " you have granted the website additional permissions" , but the site does not display in the FF Settings-Location Box, and the target website does allow me access based on location. Is there another area where location is restricted? would appreciate some help, thx.

Recently my Thunderbird started asking for my passwords every time I opened it (I have multiple Hotmail accounts). After I added the passwords it would keep asking for them over and over again (they were ALL correct). I have now uninstalled and re-installed the latest version of Thunderbird and only added 1 account back in and it still keeps doing the same. The password is visible and correct in the saved passwords section. I am now having to use another client (Outlook,which works correctly, but isnt a patch on Thunderbird) Running MACOS 12.7.3 Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there,

Using up to date Firefox on a Mac, London UK. Recently returned from travel in Japan. The bank cards auto-fill stopped working & Auto-fill does not appear in Privacy Settings (it is not there – no need to request a check please:)?

Spent 2 hours on Mozilla support/community etc. No answers – including 'make a new profile'...(& why - won' that affect history etc)?

Would be very grateful for any help please?

Hello,

I have been using Thunderbird for years to collect all emails in one place with out issue. In the last few days authentication has started failing. It started on one gmail account prompting for a password. When I enter the password it is rejected. A second GMail account is now doing the same and one of my Yahoo accounts is now doing it too.

I can still access the accounts on my phone using Oauth2.

Nothing I have tried fixes it. I am in danger of losing access to all my of my email accounts on windows.

What is going wrong?

Instead of showing the embedded link, it displayed as html. So, I can't read what was sent. Or it's hard to pick out the link.

Hello folks,

I need to do a clean install requiring the download of Thunderbird.exe file, I did ask a similar question a while ago but this was related to a Linux install.

Is it just me or does no one lese use checksums anymore, web sites would often suggest checking downloads publishing their checksums on the same pages as the download, this doesn't seem to be the case for Thunderbird hence my question below:

There's a directory list below, would it be safe to assume this relates to the latest download on Thunderbirds home page Version 115.7.0 https://www.thunderbird.net/en-US/thunderbird/115.7.0/releasenotes/

https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/releases/115.7.0/

I had a quick look on Source Forge as they usually have a page with hash codes but couldn't find Thunderbird listed.

Thanks

Suddenly today my Thunderbird email account on my desktop won't send or receive mails until I enter the password. When I add in the correct password it doesn't accept it but just comes back asking for it again. I suspect it is best to change my password but don't know how to do that. Incidentally the account is working fine on my phone and tablet with the same password but not on my desktop. Can anyone help? Thanks.
