What's going on? All of a sudden today, without anything I've done as far as I know, all my pre-2024 emails are encrypted. When trying to open one I get "The secret key that is required to decrypt this message is not available". I did go an establish a key per the instructions I saw for doing so --> account settings, end-to-end encryption, OpenPGP add key. Well, .... nada, zip, zero .... nothing changed; I still can't open pre-2024 emails. So, what gives?

I have a Google Calendar, in which I manage My Tasks. I can't see my existing tasks in Thunderbird, and I can't add new tasks to the Google Calendar. New Task in Thunderbird is greyed out and the field next to it has the writing: "Please select a calendar that supports tasks".

I have seen that many had the same issue and understood that it is linked to how My Tasks in Google Calendar itself works. Is there really no workaround whatsoever?

If not, how can I manage tasks and share them with someone else (who uses Google Calendar or Apple Calendar, but does not use Thunderbird)?

Thanks in advance for your replies!

Good morning!

Previously, when viewing an article in an RSS feed, if I double-clicked the header in the article list, Thunderbird would open the article in a new window in the client. After one of the recent (~6 months) update, I get a blank page or possibly a thumbnail image of something (very small). I have to click the link to open the article in my browser.

Is there a setting somewhere that directs Tbird to open the web page in the client vs. not? I looked at the "Allow remote content in messages" setting but it doesn't seem to affect this situation.

Can someone please help me here?

Hey there,

during work I often open two windows of Firefox to have more information visible on my two monitors. Unfortunately I sometimes forget that I have a second window open, so I close only my "main" window and loose all tabs.

Is there a way to force Firefox to ask to close a window and loosing multiple tabs for every window open?

Right now this only happens for the last open window.

PS: I just found out about the keyboard shortcut of restoring a window (CTRL+SHIFT+N) recently. I would prefer a setting in my case.

Thanks in advance Fred

I keep getting the prompt* about new.thunderbird.net expiration.

Indeed, after opening https://new.thunderbird.net in Firefox, the subdomain uses the Let's Encrypt SSL certificate that expired on 22nd May 2024. This certificate list many subdomains by name.

For https://www.thunderbird.net (after opening it in Firefox), another SSL certificate file is used (issued by Google Trust Services LLC by on 13 May 2024) valid until 11 Aug 2024. It says it should apply to thunderbird.net and *.thunderbird.net, but the new.thunderbird.net still points to the old Let's Encrypt certificate perhaps?

  • I know I could just allow the expired one as an exception

Hi.

I've recently set up a new computer. I'm a Thunderbird user.

My old computer is running Windows 10. My new one runs Windows 11. I'm running the same (current) version of TB on both computers.

I can't get my emails to move from one computer to another. I know, this sounds dumb, but it isn't; my email provider uses a weird hybrid of POP3 and IMAP, and just "connecting" didn't do the trick; in fact, adding my account to TB under 11 ate most of my emails on the server because the default TB/POP3 setting kills all old emails after 14 days.

Fortunately, my old emails still live on the Windows 10 computer because it DOESN'T do that.

I have tried export/import, but that doesn't work because my account is very old, very large, and creates a 5GB file. I've tried just MOVING it, but TB isn't picking up the old stuff correctly.

I'm pretty sure this is a TB 10/11 incompatibility for one simple reason: when I export just my address book from the 10 installation the import fails on the new (11) machine, BUT when I export it from another machine that's already running 11 I can import it on the new machine.

How do I export mail from TB on 10 and import on 11 ?

Thanks!

A few weeks ago I saw an Mozilla ad for a new Mozilla software product that cleaned up your PC and made it run better. The price was around $125.00 (I don't remember that exact price). It said that I would receive an email from Mozilla with download instructions. it's been a few weeks and I have not gotten any email. Does anyone know if Mozilla offers any such software or did I get scammed? I'm pretty good about seeing scams but Ive used Firefox and Mozilla for years and trust them. Maybe that's why I wasn't as careful as I should have been.

Thanks for any help that you can provide. Ron

A routine update from Firefox version 99 to version 100 caused Firefox to quit loading web pages, including the Settings page. Firefox appears to load normally but will not display any web page. The only thing that works consistently is Help/About Firefox. System: Lenovo E495 (AMD Ryzen 5 3500U) running Windows 10 Pro 21H2, build 19044.1706 Symptoms:

  • Version 100 and higher work correctly in trouble-shooting (safe) mode
  • Refresh does not resolve the problem
  • Manually removing extensions (NoScript and Cookie AutoDelete) does not resolve the problem
  • Uninstalling Firefox and existing profiles (all Mozilla folders in AppData/*), then making a clean install of version 100 does not resolve the problem
  • Removing version 100 and reinstalling version 99.0.1 restores normal operation (repeatable with higher versions)
  • Updating from version 99.0.1 to version 100.0.2 or version 101.0 does not resolve the problem

The following just started a week or so ago. When I start Windows 11 (latest version), Firefox (build 116.0 64 bit) automatically starts and the page that displays is attempting to access one of my Microsoft accounts. I tried toolkit.winRegisterApplicationRestart. but nothing changed. There is nothing in my Startup folder related to Firefox, and msconfig doesn't list anything as a startup process.

What's strange is that this just started happening. I've used Firefox as long as I can remember, and have never had this issue.

Short of uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it, does anyone have any suggestion(s)? Thanks.

I use a laptop with Fedora 36 installed. Firefox is version 104.0.1

Until a few days ago, there were no problems with video display. But since a few days, video content that is offered by the news site from NOS (Dutch television) is not displayed anymore. I only get this error: The media playback was aborted due to a corruption problem or because the media used features your browser did not support.

Also some content on Youtube aborts. For example loading https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qq0BUiEs3JM results in this error: Er is een fout opgetreden. Probeer het later opnieuw. (Afspeel-ID: Ui0fzPxdSexgYcZ4).' (An error occured, try later again).

When using the Chrome Browser both websites can be used without giving errors implying that all the codecs are available.

How can I detect why video is blocked?

(Twitter also gives problems. After a fraction of a second, it stops displaying video)

I am having an issue with Firefox and video playback, specifically on YouTube. When I play a video in default view mode, the playback is super choppy / low frame rate. When I change to theatre view or full screen, playback works perfectly.

I've tried incognito windows and troubleshooting mode with no improvement.

Microsoft Edge works fine.

Not sure where to go from here.
