How to use Gmail alternative emails with Thunderbird?

Description: I have a gmail account "abc@gmail.com" which is already being used by Thunderbird desktop client.

Recently I have added an alternative email to "abc@gmail.com" with my custom domain; "abc@xyz.com" Google Alternate Emails

Both email addresses are using same inbox. I can login from browser via 2 different emails with same password. I can write a new email and Gmail web UI let me choose between these 2 email sender addresses.

Reason: this custom domain has a custom server without a mail server. Instead building a mail server, we choose to use it with online services, which is already working perfectly fine up until this point.

Problem: It fails when I try to add "abc@xyz.com" in Thunderbird. Gmail's IMAP/SMTP settings guide

I get the error "Incoming server already exists", which is true and in this case shouldn't be an error but how it's suppose to be. Right? .

How can I succeed to add an email address to share the same "Incoming server" with already existing email in Thunderbird?

My PC had a sudden and total crash just recently and left me no option but to wipe the drive and do a clean install of everything.

After I had put Windows 11 back on plus other software, I reinstalled Thunderbird as well.

However it will only download emails from the reinstallation date and nothing prior.

Any advice on how to rectify this?

Is there perhaps something in SETTINGS that I need to look at?

  • The attached image shows Firefox (on the right) not displaying Helvetica correctly. It appears jagged and not pleasant to look at. The browser on the left is Edge and all Chromium based web browsers seem to render it as it should.
  • I've tried to look into (about:preferences#general) and the option that says (Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above) is ticked.
  • I've also tried reinstalling the browser, clearing the website cache and also, removing my profile from it. None of these seemed to fix the issue.
  • It's been persistent for quite some time now, however I didn't really find any articles regarding this issue.
  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I have just gone through what I guess was a crash with my thunderbird program losing all my emails, local folders, addressbooks (I had several). I have slowly been able to get some of it back. I had thought I had this back upped automatically, but apparently that isn't the case.

I want to be be to back up what I have in Thunderbird, in case this happens again. I want to do it manually so I know that it is done. What are some of the best ways to back up Thunderbird. Before you answer, please understand I am not totally computer savvy so please give me the elementary version of your explanation. :) If I do an export, does it just make a copy of what I have?

Thank you in advance.

Hello, I know when I closed the firefox browser , I can reopen firefox browser and click "settings"-- " history" --" Restore previous session" to retrieve all the webpages I was viewing last time. but this time it seems I made a mistake . I closed the firefox browser in the beginning with many valuable webpage still opened, after I restart the firefox browser, I close the browser by accident without firstly reloading all the restore previous session . Then I have to open firefox brower again, and try to click "settings"-- " history" --" Restore previous session" to try to retrieve all the webpages I was viewing in the first time. but this time no previous session can be loaded. since those webpages I was viewing are important webpage I need to check, May someone tell me how to get those valuable webpage link again? I know I can try to find those webpage link slowly by checking all the history day by day. but honestly speaking, I have 15 around webpages in the firefox brower and some of them are viewed around 20 days or 30 days before . I haven't closed my firefox browser for almost 40 days so it will be very hard for me to search the history webpage to find out them one by one. I am not sure whether there are some tips to try to load the "restore previous session " again for the first firefox browser I closed.

I'm wondering where the buttons for extensions/add-ons have their locations stored? I.e. I might have a tab-renamer extension button on one row, and firefox relay, privacy mode, and adblocker on another row. Obviously what row and what positions in the row the buttons occupy(relative index perhaps) are stored, but where?
