As of Sunday, Thunderbird can no longer reach my ATT server to download email. It has behaved for ten to fifteen years. Last time someone at ATT fixed it. I have been on the phone or on screen with ATT most of my waking hours since Sunday. (In the process I lost my internet, my landline, my cell connection, etc.) Everything is restored except the connection between Thunderbird and ATT. Everyone thinks changing my password will do it. Done it four times. It gets me into the ATT mail. I have replaced the password in Thunderbird settings with it to no avail. Is there anything you can think of? Not only is Thunderbird more attractive than ATT, I have thirty years of mail boxes there, a continuation from Eudora. I will appreciate your wisdom.

Hi. I have an email purporting to be from Microsoft telling me that I will have access problems with Thunderbird from September onwards. Something to do with authentification. Assuming it is genuine (is it?) I have no idea what to do. It gives 'instructions' which are incomprehensible to me. I dont even know why this link is to Mozilla rather than thunderbird. I don't want to loose Thunderbird's calendar or stored files let alone the ease of access I currently enjoy. I need someone kind and patient to tell this novice how to move forward in a pedantic, non-terminology way who is happy to assume I know nothing! Please help! Brian

For about a couple of weeks, there has been a lot of delay between what I type and when it actually appears. It's maddening! I have not changed any of my Firefox settings. I did a 'refresh' about an hour ago. I am not seeing any network activity that I cannot recognize. I d/l'd 'Malwarebytes' and ran it..."no threats". MS Defender has always been on & protecting me. I have never had this situation occur before and am hoping for some help (5 to 10 seconds to wait for what you've keyed in is not fun).

Had a Windows update, and it apparently screwed up Thunderbird. Can't block delete messages, and the write message screen size changed - it's now all the way across the screen. That's just for openers - can't imagine what else might be screwed up.

Tried "troubleshooting" and it didn't work, and have no idea how, or if, the changes from the Windows update can be reversed.

Thanks very much for your help. I've been using Thunderbird for many years, but the mail has become almost unusable - if mail can't be fixed, what do you recommend to replace Thunderbird?

Tried installing v115 latest on Ubuntu. Hangs when I try to set up email acc and it tries to log into the Gmail server. "Danger ahead" displayed on page with no option to force it to proceed.

Thus please dispense with any solutions for this and just inform how I can install v91.1.2 using apt-get

I see you list the versions but I see no where on how to specify which version to install.

So many topics where links are broken and instructions (no longer) apply. Can anyone please help?

Thunderbird 115.12 esr on OSX is told (or should be told) to show all received messages as plain text only, and only send email as plain text.

The font, size, line width/length, and line height of print, folders list, message list, and message text needs changing.

I wish to have everything (print, folders list, message list, and message text) to always be Atkinson Hyperlegible, 12 points, 1.2 line height.

I wish received and sent messages to show on screen with a line length of 100 characters.

I wish printed emails to fill the page width, so no cap at 100 characters.

How do I do this? Thank you for helping a vision impaired !

Two emails arrive, and the badge displaying "2" appears on the taskbar icon for T-bird V. 115, POP, on a Windows 11 computer. There are no other unread emails. One email is read, and the 2 remains, instead of decrementing to 1. Then the second unread email is read, and the "2" still remains. The only way to get rid of the "2", which is now a false reading, is to close and reopen T-bird. Is there any reason, other than a bug, for the badge on the T-bird icon to be entirely unresponsive to reading all the remaining emails in the list? Are any Win 11 settings relevant for this issue area? [T-bird was downloaded yesterday, so up to date.]

Hi, I'm using Thunderbird 115.4.1 and Windows 8.1 Pro. Ever since the Supernova update, TB crashes pretty much daily (up to 3x a day). I turned off auto-updates as soon as I found out how to, since everything was so confusing and didn't work the way I was used to. Now I'm afraid to do any more updates since I don't want a whole bunch of other things to get screwed up. I have learned to kind of work around the problem areas, though it's frustrating. But I don't want to spend another 10-15 hours trying to fix new problems. Any suggestions? I can't seem to find any information about people who have had this crashing problem and then had it resolved through an update. Thanks

Hi

I've been using Thunderbird for years with no issues. It's set up using IMAP and downloads emails from the web from my ISP. I have several different email account with my ISP. They are all set up to download to Thunderbird. All but one is working fine.

My primary email, however, is only downloading intermittently. It downloads all my emails on start up, then doesn't download any more unless I close Thunderbird and re-open. This is a new issue. Nothing has changed in my set up which is configured identically for all my email address (and the others are working fine).

Hello! Since I couldn't find help in the forums, I will create a new question. For about a year now the PC at my work will not open mailto-links correctly. There is no account to select from, the subject has a lock-symbol. The receiver's address is correct though (I replaced it with "address" for the screenshot). This PC is the only one I know with that problem and only with external mailto-links. If I click on an email address inside a mail, it opens it correctly. Thunderbird version 115.11.1 (32-Bit), Win 10

It's pretty impractical, so I am hoping for help. Thank you!

I first mentioned this in r/Firefox, and was asked to re-post here.

My FF just updated to 127.0.1 even though I have "Check for updates but let you choose to install them" and told it to wait. This was on a Windows 11 box. Everything seemed fine, but then one of my tabs crashed. I selected the reload tab option, at which point it informed me it could not load the tab because a background update had happened and I was now required to restart Firefox.

I'm not certain what version of FF I was on, I believe it was either 126 or 126.0.1.

Now, to be completely fair, I cannot with 100% certainty say that I clicked on the update later option. That said, as I _did not want to update then_, and I have put off the update before, it seems unlikely I would have made the mistake, but I wasn't recording everything I did so I can't play it back and prove it. My initial reaction was to associate it with the tab crashing somehow, as everything was working as expected right up until that moment.

Thanks
