Every morning when I open Thunderbird I receive the notice that "Thunderbird can't update to the latest version." but I am already running the latest version (91.9.0 as of this writing, screen capture attached).

None of the following have worked to resolve this issue yet:

  • Download and install from "Download Thunderbird" link in notice.
  • Uninstall and re-install from fresh download.

Any thoughts what I'm doing wrong, or what else I can try?

Thank you.

Firefox used to give the option to open a file without saving. Now it saves everything to my downloads folder with no option to just open. (I am aware Firefox used to save the opened files in temp). This causes major clutter in my downloads folder and big disruptions to my work flow. Sometimes I just want to view the file and not save it to my working folder (downloads).

Is there a workaround to save to opened files in temp and the saved files to download?

Does Firefox give 2 different "save to" options? One option for a location to save downloaded files and one option for a location to save opened files?

Last year someone asked about 2 Firefox for Android applications; I just had two different copies of Firefox installed on my Win 10 laptop (one in an attempt by Microsoft to upgrade to Win 11) where all my data was in the old app named 'Mozilla Firefox') while the newly installed app was just 'Firefox' and had none of my data. I did not attempt that new install, it seems Microsoft did ?? They also mentioned wanting to redirect the new Firefox to specific Domain Name Service servers, rather than the traditional server addresses provided by the local network. Anyone know what's going on?

I've been using Thunderbird for years, always storing message on my machine. My local profile folder is now 2.3GB with 14,191 files in 688 folders. I suspect there is a lot of "orphaned" junk there. Most suspicious are hundreds of folders and files in subfolders named Cache and Cache.Trash, all dated in 2017. There is a cache2 folder that appears to be current.

I also have several other folders/files with dates (modified) back in 2017 and 2018, apparently no longer in use. I'm migrating to a new machine and would like to avoid junk if it's really junk. Is there a "cleanup" tool, or any guidance on how to identify and delete orphans?

Or... is there a way to "export" all and then "import" on a new machine. I've seen the migrate video, but it just tells how to copy/paste everything.

Thunderbird stopped downloading new message 3 days ago 5/16/22. I tried a bunch of stuff, all failed. Finally, I deinstalled Thunderbird and deleted my profiles. I reinstalled Thunderbird and created a new account (gmail). The automatic configuration reported "Checking password ..." PASSED. Next it reported "Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password"

I am using IMAP:

 imap.gmail.com, 993, SSL/TLS, OAuth2
 smtp.gmail.com, 465, SSL/TLS, OAuth2

I tried changing authentication method to normal password, no luck. I am able to log in to gmail. My account is set to allow unsecure applications.

Any ideas what is going on?

How to migrate gmail-folders to other imap provider without duplicating emails?

Dear community,

I have been using Thunderbird for many years and simply love it. (Now running v. 91.9.0, 64-bit for Mac-OS monterey v. 12.3.1).

After having used G-suite gmail with my own domain name for years as well, I am now forced to upgrade to a google business offering or take my domain name email somewhere else :-(

So I signed up for an alternative provider, and have copied a couple of folders to the new email-account using Thunderbird. This works like a charm, but what happens when I copy over the AllMail folder? I believe I will then duplicate all the emails copied from the folders?

Is there a smart way of migrating from gmail to another imap-provider using Thunderbird which will take into account google obscure way of labelling emails? Or is there another way of migrating away from gmail?

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks, Fred Gjoertz.

I am looking for suggestions/work flows for migrating existing Mac's from the standard firefox release to the ESR version. I am looking to manage these all under 1 update cycle. A couple of current problems:

  1. On a system with the standard version already installed, I can't find a way to upgrade to the ESR version without uninstalling first.
  2. Once I would do an uninstall and then an install of the new version, I am prompted that I have launched an older version of Firefox and that I must create a new profile. How can I do this without loosing all users bookmarks, extensions, etc?

Thanks!

I have two identical computers running Firefox on Windows 7. No serious issues for 3 years or longer.

Just recently, version 100 showed "Unknown Source" instead of the normal UAC authorization window which lists mozilla.org as the source.

The 100.0.1 update showed the same warning.

This only occurred on one of the computers. The other one does not show the warning.

Firefox worked fine after doing the downloads anyway, but the "Unknown Source" is not right and makes the user think security is being compromised.
