I have a poor memory and to cope with that I place all of the individuals and organisation I use emails with onto the list that runs down the left hand side of my Thunderbird screen. Is there any sort of, "Find" ability on this application.

When I logon to my ANZ account - I get a msge " Access denied. Error 15. This request was blocked by the security rules." I can still logon through my iphone app, and also through my other laptop (Macbook), and I tried successfully using another browser (Microsoft Edge), so it must be the settings or a security block on my Dell laptop & Firefox browser? How can I check the settings in Firefox? Thanks Graeme

I believe this started with 94.0.2 but could be 94.0.1. Looking at various things in Easysnews.com, for instance thumbnails, the title for that item used to change from blue (Unvisted Links) to brown (Visited Links) and keep the brown color until I exited Easynews. Now it does not. In another case, looking at my list of favorite groups, the group name will turn brown as long as my mouse is over it but it will not stick if I select that item.

I am not using system colors and Override the colors specified by the page with your selections above is set to Only With High Contrast themes. I tried the other two choices but they really created a mess.

I have also tried deleting any easynews cookies to no effect.

I use a Firefox account on two different machines- one is a Mac and the other is a Windows machine. I have some programs installed on the Windows machine that installed an extension for Firefox. Those programs are not Mac compatible but because of the same account, those extensions were copied to the Firefox installation on Mac. I was wondering if there is a way to isolate the extensions to just the windows installation? Thanks!

Hi I’m on Thunderbird 91.2.1 ( 32 Bits) I had sent to the Trash folder a message received in October/November 2021 and subsequently emptied the Trash folder. How can I retrieve this deleted message? . I went to my “Profile” folder and to the Mail, Local Folder folder, following your instructions. .

In the Mail/Local Folder there are four files ( “Unsent messages”, Unsent messages.msf, msgFilterRules.Dat, ,Trash and Trash.msf,

Unfortunately, none of these files contains deleted messages.. When I open the “Trash” file with The Thunderboird.exe program, all I get is a “Write-To” screen.

How can I retrieve those deleted messages?

Thanks

I'm writing this with a pit in my stomach... -For over a decade, I've been using an email address set up with my ISP. xxx@verizon.net -Awhile back, Verizon stopped supporting the email process, and moved it to aol. But things continued as aol provided support for Verizons mail clients. I was able to use that xxx@verizon.net at the aol mail site to do email via a browser, and the Thunderbird client on my Mac continued to work fine. -I moved and had to give up Verizon as an ISP. aol said I could continue as before. All worked well until recently.

-aol has recently sent out instructions to adhere to some security need they saw with a deadline of 06 December whereby they said in Thunderbird, ->Tools|Account Settings, select my account (xxx@verizon.net), -> Account Actions, and Remove the account. Then add account. I used the same account name and all looked good. They said this'd activate the "secure sign-in method for your account".

I quit and restarted Thunderbird, and ALL mail has vanished. I'm hoping that since Thunderbird had been set to pull down messages to my Mac and delete the message from the server, that there is a container on my system that I can get at to regain access to my old mail. Are my hopes misplaced? If not, how can I go about roping that old mail into this "new" account?

I'd appreciate any thoughts. Thanks in advance. Mike

Thunderbird is NOT loading my imap "spam" folder at start up, have to manually go to the spam folder to see if anything is there. My mail provider directs too many of my important emails into the spam folder so having it load at Thunderbird start up is important to me. I have the folder subscribed, am I missing a setting somewhere?

I am in the USA. Every time, on any page or website that I need to provide credit card info, when I click in the box to type in the CC numbers/expiration date/CCV, a window pops up as it should (for auto-fill) with my credit card information. In that window, I can scroll over the different credit cards, click on the one I want to use, and it SHOULD auto-fill into the box where the numbers would normally be typed in. Now, the window still pops up and I can scroll over the credit cards and choose one, but when I click on any of the particular credit cards, the auto-fill doesn't work. The boxes in "settings" are checked to allow auto-fill. It worked for months, then just stopped. Thanks for your assistance!

I am not a power computer user and do not understand what to do. The last time this happened I had to get a special password from Goggle but do not remember how to get the PW nor what to do with the new PW.
