How can I turn this message off? Some sites I visit give me that message, it shows up when I'm typing a reply to something which pushes the page lower and fouls up my ability to keep typing, then if goes away, comes back, goes away ... I just want to kill the message entirely. I'm not worried about speed, there's nothing to fix, I just want the message gone.

I understand the adaptive methodology (I've coded Naive Bayes algorithms) but since the move from a Windows 10 workstation to a Linux workstation (three months ago), I've been marking a LOT of spam emails. I'm wondering how much data the algorithm needs or if there's a setting I need to change. I'm also wondering if the feature works the same on Linux and whether I can migrate the fitted model that worked well from the W10 TB profile (?) to the Linux TB profile. Also, I'm wondering if there's any way to get insight in what state the model's in.

I'm sure I can find more info by digging around, but I was wondering if anyone had any comments or clues or was ever in a similar situation. If there's a problem with junk filtering on Linux, it makes TB a lot less useful.

Hi

My name is Ivo. I use Thunderbird for all my Email-Accounts. Now I wanted to add another one, which is info@ivo-zimmermann.ch, but it does not work (pls see screenshots in the attachment).

info@ivo-zimmermann.ch works fine when I login directly on Gmail, it also worked fine to login here into the mozilla support. Also all other accounts that I have (for example info@kanai-zimmermann.ch) were no problem to install.

Do you have an idea where the problem is?

Thank you in advance Ivo

Firefox has a magnifier in the url bar. It activates for no reason. The arrow pointer does not move but the magnifier keeps going up and down 110%- 145%- 38% all over the place. only hitting escape several times and then touching the magnifier resets it back to 100% {normal} is there a way of eliminating this feature alltogether? Any help would be appreciated.

Does anybody know if this is possible? Currently when I try to use my mouse to input a 'shortcut' in the 'Type a shortcut' box nothing works.

Are there any about:config settings or add-ons that can enable me to use my Mouse to make shortcuts for my add-ons?

Using Thunderbird 115.5.0 on a Mac. I started using Thunderbird around 3 weeks ago.

I added several of my accounts. On some accounts, it shows folders that I have deleted months or years ago. They were not visible in Outlook or on the web interface. Now they are visible in Thunderbird.

These folders are shown in italics and greyed out. I cannot delete them in Thunderbird or interact with them in any useful way. They are just annoying. Any way to get them removed? Or at least hidden?

Thanks

I deleted from Thunderbird an old University account that had been deactivated, but Thunderbird still prompts for those credentials. I copied messages from that inbox to a local folder and then deleted the account. Then I deleted a calendar connection for that account, and finally the outgoing server for that account. I can't think of anything else, but it continues to prompt to enter credentials for that e-mail address. When I deleted the account there were two options. One was something like "delete everything" and the other was akin to "leave some stuff". I don't remember the details but I chose the latter figuring it might goof up the local folder copy otherwise.

The school must have used google, since the prompt is coming from googleapis.com.

Any ideas on how it still knows about that old account?

Thanks!

I am using Firefox with the uBlock Origin and Cookie AutoDelete extensions enabled. When I try and load Gmail or any other Google site, I get a blank page and nothing loads at all. This only occurs when my VPN is on (I use Private Internet Access). However, even with the VPN on, Chrome will still load those sites. Disabling the VPN means that the sites load normally.

My guess is it might be some sort of privacy setting in Firefox, but I don't understand what it could be. The only thing that breaks/fixes the sites is connecting and disconnecting the VPN, irrespective of which country I try and connect from.

Thunderbird version: 115.6.1

Since the end of last week, no e-mails have been displayed in the inbox or folders - a number with unread messages and the folder size still appears next to the inbox and folders, and I also receive a desktop notification when a new e-mail arrives. The connection to the server must therefore still be available. The calendar is also displayed.

In the account settings under "Synchronisation & Storge - Disk Space" "Synchronize all messages locally regardless of age" is activated.

Deactivating add-ons does not lead to any different behaviour, but starting Thunderbird in safe mode does. Then all messages are displayed again.

Likewise, "Properties - Repair folder" and clearing the cache under "General - Disk Space - Clear now" do not lead to a solution.

Are there any other solutions I can try?

Thunderbird 102.7.0, 64-bit, Windows 10.

I just fell over this today but it may have been around for a while.

I have lots of email accounts. It was great when TB starting properly supporting a per-account (outbound) SMTP server, however, this seems to have newly broken. I fell over it today, but I don't reboot things for ages so I cannot pinpoint the start.

Here's the issue.

I have accounts on many mail servers, many on the same (mainly att.net, and gmail.com, as it happens).

Each one of them, to send mail, wants me to log in with an individual sending address. Fair enough. This used to work just fine.

However, suddenly, just the att.net addresses are broken. What *seems* to be happening is that the same, single login address is being used for all N accounts. Naturally, this breaks when the login address doesn't match the one on the From: line. So I have to futz around, fiddle around, and so on, and then things work. (I.E. I change the TB settings so that the outbound SMTP auth login matches the From: line, have to re-enter the password, and only then will the message be sent.) So if I have two accounts, x@att.net and y@att.net, only one of them (at a time) "works" with att.net - it's whatever I successfully used last. If I sent mail from x@, this address is being used (and it's in the account settings field. over-riding what was there before), even if I send mail from y@. Or z@. Etc. If I change the SMTP auth address to y@, then that account works perfectly, but x@ doesn't. And so on.

Now the weird part is this: my Gmail addresses still work perfectly. I can send from all of them without changing a thing.

The only thing I can see is that Gmail is set up to use oAuth, and att.net is set up to use 'normal password' (via SSL, so I'm not that bothered about security).

Did I unknowingly manage to break something? Is there a new tweak? Help!
