I have not changed my email settings, passwords or anything else for years. Recently, about 3 weeks ago, I discovered some of my emails were just not getting sent, although the email appeared to go through, was placed in my sent folder, with no error indication of any kind. I have since done several tests, from one email account to another and now most (90%+) emails are in this same boat. Occasionally, I am able to get a test email to properly send and it is received, but all the other emails just are not actually sent.

Thunderbird - Email replication in folders and update message continually showing

I have a problem in Thunderbird with particularly my Sent folder but with some others as well. The emails in the folder are being duplicated and eventually are replicating 36 times and more. From having 500 to a thousand genuine emails in the Sent folder they have replicated to almost 46,000 despite me having deleted thousands.

It is causing problems with my C drive on the computer as that is filling up and slowing my computer. After deleting large numbers of duplicates and emptying the Deleted folder I can't compact the folder because I get a message telling me that there is insufficient space in the folders. I often have problems deleting emails because "I have no room in the folder to download emails". I have to delete one or two at a time to make room.

Despite having upgraded Thunderbird I keep getting a message telling me that I need to upgrade. I have not used the URL in this message box but have gone directly to the Thunderbird website and downloaded the latest version from there.

I have scanned my disks for viruses using Avast Premium software and that reports no problems.

Help please?

Every couple of days, when I try to open Firefox, I get the "You've launched an older version of Firefox" error message, asking me to close Firefox or create a new profile. I have redownloaded and reinstalled Firefox countless times, and it just keeps happening. I've now tried disabling automatic updates to see if that fixes it, but is there any way to prevent this from happening? I am on macOS Monterey 12.6.1.

After the new 106.0.3 update to Firefox the browser has been slow. This mainly occurs when copying information from a webpage to a word document. To recreate it you can create citations on ZoteroBib and copy them to a word document. It also happens more often when I'm playing music on Spotify web. The music will stutter when I try to copy the information and then resume playing afterwards.

Any help is greatly appreciated. I am using Ublock origin, Bitwarden, Local CDN, and Save to Zotero browser extensions.

Suddenly BofA on line banking erroneously recognizes the firefox on my PC as being on a phone, i.e. everything on the BofA side responds with mobile banking. Is there some setting that changed? I am on cable (xfinity) and have made no changes to hardware etc. - literally happened day-to-day.

My thunderbird email app seems to have crashed. It was working just fine then the following day it opened but didn’t “work”. I have an imac and I got the spinning circle. I force quit the app a few times and after trying to open it again I received a “the application isn’t responding” message. I thought maybe I needed to update the app and attempted to get the latest version. I was able to download the new version but it never migrated into my applications folder.( and yes, I did drag the thunderbird icon to my applications folder.). Now I’m not really sure what to do. The new one won’t open and neither will the “older” one. It is my business email and I have a lot of saved emails on the app which I would like to save. Any ideas?

Not happy guys.

For no obvious reason Thunderbird is downloading multiple copies (3-4) of each of the emails from one of my accounts. Please give me advice on how to correct this issue.

Today, when I opened Thunderbird I noticed that about 20 folders containing roughly 200+ emails have disappeared.

I have made no changes to any part of the program, but with 2-3 "upgrades" per week, plenty of changes have occurred. This is totally unacceptable.

What kind of quality control do you guys have?

Hi, we are a long-time user of Firefox on our Windows Server edition via Terminal Services. I'm wondering if the way/version we are using Firefox is not, correct? Should we be using an enterprise Version that is managed? Our server is getting old, so I downloaded Chrome a few months back to see if the experience would be better. Chrome is showing that we are on a Managed browser, but Firefox is not. It got me thinking that maybe I'm using the wrong version of Firefox. After an update a few days ago, Firefox has been glitchy and will hang. I haven't tried Refreshing it yet, nor have I tried restarting the server. We usually have Hardware Acceleration turned off. We have 24 gb of Ram, we also Dual(2 processors-2.4gHz each) that help our server fly really fast. If secure DNS-DoH is active, Firefox will really hang. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

I have a Mac. It seems all the answers to this problem apply to Windows, but I have tried them anyway and they have not worked. Firefox updated the same day that the Mac did. So I have Firefox 106.0.4 and Ventura 13.0. Everything is huge. I cannot see the upper row, I cannot get the fonts to be a normal size, and the sides of the screen are somewhere east and west of the screen. I have tried doing the ui.textScaleFactor. Nothing changed. When I change the fonts in the usual place, it makes no difference. My main screen is also huge. Huge fonts, huge folders, etc. Anyone out there with a Mac that has a solution? I do all my work online, so this is really affecting me. Thanks for your time and effort. Diane

Any webpage I try loading with WebGL immediately crashes, ONLY using firefox. This started happening after I tried manually selecting which GPU (integrated vs discrete) to get better performance. Default settings run off the integrated intel GPU, everything ran at crazy high resources switching to the nvidia so i switched back to default.

Problem started when I switched back to default and no matter what I do I cannot fix the issue. I've tried numerous clean installs, resetting firefox, and finally troubleshooting mode which is where I noticed WebGL is simply disabled but the crashing stopped loading those webpages. All I get is an embedded error that WebGL is not supported.

Searching online, I dont see any current issues, only finding threads that are years old. I have been submitting every crash via about:crashes every day because this is an easily repeatable issue for me, but over a month later and I'm still resorting to other browsers to use these websites, which i DO NOT want to do, i like firefox and want it as my default

When I have not used Firefox for a little while, anything from a few minutes to half an hour or more, if I try to open the browser it takes a few seconds to be ready for use. If I try to use it too quickly it thinks about it and then tells me that the website I am trying reach is unavailable or that the internet is down. Browser is up to date.

MacOS 13.0 Thunderbird 102.4.2 Get Messages (and automatic email check) hangs Tbird for more than a minute with spinning color wheel and "Application Not Responding". Unable to do anything else in Tbird (e.g. check calendar) while happening. I've done all the suggested actions I could find. Turning VPN on/off has no effect. This also happens on second Mac laptop running older version of MacOS and Tbird. I've reset the checking interval to 10 minutes, increased cache size, yadda yadda. Nothing helps. One would think that the check mail process would be an independent process and not hang the rest of Tbird. But that's what's happening. Why? and what can I do to fix it?

I actually think the problem lies deeper with the phone. I had the same problem with chrome and some of my apps on this cheap android 50330 crappy phone with a small hard drive which is just about full. So maybe lack of hard drive space may be the problem.
