I changed my gmail password in FF and can use gmail in an FF tab but TB login fails with new or old gmail password. I recently changed Thunderbird security from 0Auth2 to 'normal password'. I tried removing my account from TB and adding back - it still fails. What did I do wrong?

Hi!

I have two Firefox windows open. One is of my 'Personal' profile and the other is of my 'Work' profile. (Both set in 'about:profiles'). I would like to switch between the two using hotkeys.

While I'm able to switch between Firefox windows of the same profile using the default "Cmd + ` ", it's not working between windows of different profiles. "Alt + tab" works of course but that's slow if I haven't activated one of my profiles (window) for a while.

If there isn't a native solution, I'd also be interested in hearing about Lua + "Karabiner-elements" workarounds if you are familiar with them.

Thanks!

I want to disable checking for updates, but the setting to do so has been removed. After updating fairly recently, I noticed that the setting located in:

about:preferences#general

Was changed to "Check for updates but let you choose to install them" WITHOUT my permission. As a result of this change, I get nagged while I am working ALL THE TIME. Like, several times a day. Not just when the browser first starts, but while I am working. I am getting sick of it! It's become spam at this point, drawing my eyes away from work. and if you think spamming people will make them do it, think again.

In Windows 10 I got so fed up with the automatic updates disrupting work that I outright destroyed my computer's ability to EVER get a system update. If the nuclear option is available for Firefox I am prepared to do so if only to make it shut up already.

So anyway, please tell me, how do I make it stop nagging me about updates? and while I am at it, how do I kill the notification system entirely? because I never want any type of notification ever disrupting me while I am working.

Obviously Mozilla understands this sentiment, since the default behavior now is to hide notifications as described here:

https://blog.mozilla.org/firefox/block-notification-requests/

So why be so in-your-face about updates?

NOTE: I am not against updates in general, but back in the 90's when software updates was optional I updated things far more often because I enjoyed having the ability to do research on an update before accepting it. This personal policy has resulted in me avoiding lots of bad updates that damaged other people's computers, but software that updates without permission like Chrome, for example, would constantly introduce bugs or change behavior without my permission in such a way that makes it largely unusable to me. On my chromebook computer I was able to temporarily block chromebook updates by manually setting the version number to a maximum value but the moment google found a way around that an update was pushed that screwed up touch screen functionality, so, realistically speaking, the heavy handed approach to updates is ultimately what causes me to stop updates. Ironically. While I understand a desire for security, these big companies just don't seem to realize that my computer is my own personal property so they can't treat it like it was under the authority of their IT department. I just want control over what my computer is doing. If and when I update it will be because I am ready to, not because someone else decided to force it on me.

Out of sheer laziness, I have continued to run (ancient) Thunderbird v24.3.0 on a Windows 7 machine until this past weekend, when I set aside 10 minutes to install the current level of Thunderbird, and moved my mail data to a Win10 pc. As a point of minor interest, I use Mindspring (Earthlink) as my mail server: inbound mail is processed from an Earthlink pop server, and outbound mail is sent through a single secure SMTP server.

This migration involved these steps: (1) stop Thunderbird on Win7; (2) install v78.7.1 on Win10; (3) copy the Users\(id ..)\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird folder (and its subfolders, including the active profile) from Win7 to the same logical location on Win10 (I renamed the Win10 Thunderbird folder which was loaded as part of the new email installation as a safety measure).

Save for the behavior of email Reply/Reply All functions, all Thunderbird actions are behaving normally. These functions, though, are behaving bizarrely now with 78.7.1.

Before I describe the symptoms I see now, I'll note my Account Settings, which are unchanged from the old Thunderbird on Win7.

I have three accounts defined, as follows:

o MyID-1 -- this my default email id, and is defined to periodically check the mail server for new messages, and to look for mail when Thunderbird begins operation. It shares a single Inbox with the other accounts. Its Identity is MyID-1@mindspring.com. MyID-1 is my default address.

o MyID-2 -- save for the userid string, this account is otherwise identical to MyID-1. It too shares the single Inbox, and its identity is MyID-2@mindspring.com.

o OtherID -- this is a "backup" email id that is normally active on a different workstation here. Should that pc experience a failure, I could enable this account, and permit it to send and receive mail. It is defined now to never contact the pop mail or smtp servers.

On the chance that the userid/email-id strings may be causing odd effects:

   . MyID-1 is a string of characters, say "abcde".
   . MyID-2 includes MyID-1 as a subset, say "abcde89".
   . OtherID includes MyID-2 as a subset, say "1abcde89".

And to reiterate, there is a single Outbound/SMTP server definition. The associated userid -- for id/password verification for server authorization -- is MyID-1@mindspring.com.

At last, then, here the errors I am experiencing. There may be other situations which cause similar problems, but these failures are consistent and easily repeatable.

1. New email arrives:

     From: someone@gmail.com
     To:      OtherID@mindspring.com
     To:      MyID-1@mindspring.com

I select Reply All. This creates a new note as follows:

    From: OtherID@mindspring.com
    To:      someone@gmail.com
    To:      MyID-1@mindspring.com

This symptom persists whether the original email is in the Inbox, or saved to another folder.

2. I have an email in my Sent folder, not yet moved to a more specific folder:

    From: MyID-1@mindspring.com
    To:     OtherID@mindspring.com

Reply creates:

   From: OtherID@mindspring.com
   To:     MyID-1@mindspring.com

3. Another Sent Mail Reply, with the original reading:

   From: MyID-1@mindspring.com
   To:     MyID-2@mindspring.com

and Reply produces:

   From: MyID-2@mindspring.com
   To:     MyID-1@mindspring.com

So to summarize: I can't think of a single reason why Reply or Reply All should _ever_ behave so as to:

(a) NOT use my default email address for the source of replies; AND,

(b) Reply TO an address different than the From: header in the mail being replied to.

I apologize for the length of this post! The good news is that I haven't found any other environmental or settings values that ought to be of interest, or this entry would be lengthier yet.

Many thanks -- in advance.

Hi,

I have been experiencing on and off problems with the outgoing e-mail. It says it failed to log in my account. With all of my accounts.

Nothing changed as far of the settings go, I triple checked them even with my provider. The problem seems to be in Thunderbird. If I use another e-mail program I don't have any problems. Also tried after disabling all of the add-ons but same problem.

Is this a bug?

Love to hear how we can fix this.
