Thunderbird v 115.9.0

The message pane will start randomly flashing Once this starts, its almost impossible to perform any other action in TB ( other apps OK)

I have completely uninstalled TB and cleared out the Thunderbird section in %AppData% before re-installing TB again Will seem OK to start with after re-install, but the problem soon comes back

Anyone seen similar ?

Here is a video showing it https://photos.app.goo.gl/PEeR8z7seqD53Xrk9

Note : Although the video shows the "loading messages" text at the bottom - most of the time the problem is happening that text is not present

Having changed my email address with my client, I need to get rid of the old one and its connections from my laptop as it keeps popping up and creating error messages.

I am told by my client that they are stuck, since when they go to the menu "account settings" the only settings they can access are for the new email address. When they try "preferences/privacy/security/passwords" the old password is not found.

How do I get to the settings of the obsolete address in order to delete ?

I hope you can help

Hi from Australia!

I've just noticed that Thunderbird is the biggest user of storage space on my HP desktop computer, at 55.5GB.

I've tried to delete it, because I have my own email program and never use Thunderbird.

But when I try to uninstall Thunderbird, I get the following message:

"E:\uninstall.helper.exe The system cannot find the drive specified"

It's: "Mozilla Thunderbird (x64 en-US) 102.9.1 Mozilla 7/04/2023 55.5GB"

Thanks for considering this,

Kind regards,

This is a new problem which has only just started. If I open up an email and press the Forward button to forward the message on, the original content of the email including attachments is lost. The only part of the original message that remains is the Subject, Date, From and To section. The same occurs if I right click the email from the Inbox and click on Forward.

The problem does appear to be intermittent and is not affecting all emails.

Is this a known problem, can anyone assist in a resolution?

Many thanks

Hello, sorry for distrubing,

I have a problem with css transition since last update. Since last update, css transition on scroll is lagging. Any other browser is doing it fine, firefox was doing it fine too before last update. You can see it, for example, on page https://www.albixon.com/ . On scroll, the page content is sliding smoothly by css transition.

Thank you, Jan

I have Thunderbird 115.9.0 (32-bit). Previously, I had no problem with the Dictionary. But now, I get no spelling suggestions at all. There is a blank space after "Language:" in the "Spelling" section of Settings > Composition

I have tried several times downloading the "English (British)" Dictionary and the Language pack In the "Add-on and Themes": in the "Dictionaries" section: "British English Dictionary (Marco Pinto)" is there and enabled. In the "Languages" section, "Language: "English" is present and enabled

When I am writing an email, clicking on the "Spelling" shows "English (United Kingdom)" with a tick next to it. I was not able to get a screenshot of this last item but I attach screenshots of all my other statements above.

What have I missed? Thanks in advance for any help.

Hallo,

in the recent days, I tried several times to get a new laptop synchronized with the Firefox bookmarks on my main PC. I did it already successfully with my old laptop and with my mobile phone some time ago. But now I have problems, because I cannot confirm my log-in on the new laptop. I am told that I get a mail with the verification code, which I need to enter in 5 minutes. But the mail is alsways received some hours (!!!!) after intitiating it. My email-account is with arcor.de (which is also with vodafone). I found already the advice on your pages, to enter firefox (respective mozilla) on a white list of the provider. But there is no whitelist existing. What can I do now? The five minutes limitation is killing the possibilty to verify my firefox account, if the mail needs hours to reach me. Other mail are coming rather in time.

Best regards, Thomas Roedl

Hello,

My Firefox Android tabs in grid view constantly get reset.

I can open 5 new tabs and them be in order and at the bottom, since they are the last viewed. Then when I reopen Firefox they are gone and tabs I had closed before are back there.

My history tab is also always blank unless I search.

I appreciate any help :)

Using IMAP with the latest Thunderbird over Windows 10.

When Sieve filters create a folder Sub1/Sub2 using "fileinto :create", most operations in Thunderbird that see that folder tree will trigger a "Mailbox doesn't exist" warning. The Sub1 folder is grey/disabled.

What is the "state" of these folders that causes them to be greyed. That is, what exactly does a greyed folder name indicate to us?

I'd like to know what we need to do from the Thunderbird client side OR the server side, even with Sieve, to make Sub1 a legitimate folder.

Related: Sub2 folders created on the server are not auto Subscribed. What can be done in the client app or on the server to automatically ensure new folders are all Subscribed? The only way I know how to do this is to manually go into the account Subscribe option in Thunderbird, Refresh, select all folders, click Subscribe, then OK/Save.

Similarly : Sub2 folders created on the server are not checked as "When getting new messages for this account, always check this folder" What is the difference between "always checking this folder" and "subscribed"? What can be done in the client app or on the server to automatically ensure new folders are all set to be checked when getting new messages?

As a developer I would be fine with looking at code, creating an Thunderbird addon, or coding some process in the server to change folder settings. But I need to understand exactly how and where these settings are made so that I know what code to write.

Thanks!
