Background: 1. My Thunderbird catches some spam, plus I manually sort some messages to junk folder with the junk status icon. 2. Comcast provides a forwarding address (missedspam@comcastdotnet) to which it's customers may forward junk to help prevent repeats. 3. To easily use Comcast's service, I created a filter for the junk folder: "forward to missedspam@comcast."

Problem: When I "run filters on folder" for the junk folder when it contains more than 2 junk notes Thunderbird give an error message: An error occurred while sending mail: The mail server sent an incorrect greeting: resomta-ch2-19v.sys.comcast.net resomta-ch2-19v.sys.comcast.net Too many sessions opened. See the image. Question: Is this a real problem or just an annoyance?

Thanks

When my Microsoft Surface is in tablet mode and I click in any text field in Firefox, the on-screen keyboard pops up, there's a little shutter on the screen, and the keyboard closes. If I open the keyboard again by clicking in the task bar, the same thing happens again. The on-screen keyboard works perfectly in all other apps.

Anyone come across this before? Any thoughts?

I'm using the latest version of Firefox and Windows.

Hello,

I'm wondering if there's any plan to create extensions for other browsers for Lockwise ?

I need to jump across various browsers, Chrome/Brave, Safari, etc. for testing and it would be great to have access to all of my passwords across the different browsers, without having to switch back to Firefox.

This would be just for the "desktop" versions as the app is integrated with my mobile device.

Thanks in advance

Automatic Login Progression for Multiple Email Acct Logins

I am running Thunderbird 52.9.1 (32-bit) on a WIN XP SP3 computer and Thunderbird 86.0b3 (32-bit) on a WIN 10 machine. Both computers use the same keyboard & monitor via a KVM switch. When logging in on the older WIN XP computer the login popup automatically progresses to the next email account for login when the current one is successful. I have 3 active email accounts loaded the exact same way in TB in both machines. When logging in on the Win 10 machine the TB login window will not automatically progress to the next email account so that I can log in. I have to manually move the mouse cursor to the next account. I have the same 3 email accounts loaded in the WIN 10 version as I do on the WIN XP SP3 machine. Is there any kind of hidden command that I can set/reset to have Version 86.0b3 (32-bit) automatically progress through all three email logins like it does in the much older 52.9.1 (32-bit) version? Or does this need to go in as a suggestion for future versions of TB?

Hello! Our company has had this issue since May of 2020. out of 170 users, we will have 3 or 4 users per day crashing at random times. we cannot recreate the crashing on demand, its random times, random pcs. we are running the latest ESR version we do have a handful of PCs on the non ESR version also crashing. nothing in their extensions. we have tried running in safe mode and renaming the storage folder for some of the repeat users PCs but the crashing persists after a few days. we had all users refresh firefox but it will also happen again after a few days. we have tried setting a different home page for some users but they still get it. the only fix is to reinstall firefox and it will work fine for a few days but then will happen again. when they are in the crash cycle, nothing will get FF to open, only reinstall. FF is the default browser since some of our vendors require it. any help would be appreciated!

here are some of the users crash reports. I cant tell what is causing the crashes. we do have mcafee AV and have tested removing Endpoint security modules but still got crashing.

I am a new Thunderbird user & I am having multiple problems figuring things out. Two very basic Q's, pls: 1) I somehow added a search field in the bottom toolbar... now, I can't undo it. How do I remove the search field in the toolbar? 2) I have also tried & tried to make the font larger in my inbox. There are different settings that seem to purport to adjust font sizes, but I can't get any to work.

I'm sure that there are existing threads that have long since answered these Q's. Hopefully, someone can direct me to those discussions. Thx. John

Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but I've got a problem. On both my towers I have the Stop Button (and the Reload Button too) installed because I hate that little dual purpose thing that looks like a worm in an apple (small a apple) and can't be moved out of the URL bar to the bar I want it in. The installation on the tower (Windows 10 and updated today Firefox whatever that is) is working perfectly. On the machine running XP, with Firefox ESR 52.9.0, both buttons have died. I have removed and reinstalled. Not a flicker of life. AVG has been intermittently badgering me and offering to remove them, but I always tell it where to go (even though it won't) and close the warning. The people at AVG don't seem to understand that a lot of people outside AVG don't accept their prog's fatwa on certain extensions. What I'm wondering is, is it AVG being sneaky, or is there a reason why two extensions working happily for several months should go legs up? AVG warns me on the 10 machine too, btw. But the buttons still work. Before I made the Final Upgrade to ESR 52.9.0, I had real Mozilla buttons, but these ones by kiheru are the only replacements I can find. PS for software reasons I need both XP and 10.

I posteId this as a solution vs. a question, sorry.

yesterday when I opened TB for the 2nd time, my inbox was empty. I also noticed it appeared to be a different icon and when I highlighted it, it said smart inbox.... anyway, I had years of files in the inbox (I have not been great in migrating everything) my other folders were not impacted, just inbox. I looked in my profile and found the first image, lots of mail.ogengr-#. in most of them, the 'inbox' file had no kb. I found out that TB was linking to ogengr-4. (0kb in inbox). I failed to do the 'repair inbox' trick before I looked through the other files and found one with like 97K kb and copied that into -4. but it only had files from like 2008. I looked in another profile and again found 1 file with 75K kb but it was only 2007 files...

is there somewhere else I can look for the inbox files? I have removed latest version of TB and went back to 78.6.1 and it didn't seem to help
