FIXED! Unable to log in at server - OAuth2 token not being saved for Gmail?

I am trying to move Gmail accounts from an old Outlook to Thunderbird due to new OAuth2 rules but can't get the accounts set up in Thunderbird on Windows 10: I installed a fresh copy of 31.8 and Imported emails and address books from Outlook ok. I then installed (upgraded to) 91.10 and tried to set up my existing Gmail account: I type in my gmail username and password and choose POP3 then Done and the Google Credentials window pops up. I enter my email and password and it asks to give Thunderbird access so I choose Allow. The Account Setup screen then says Checking Password and Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password... If I choose Done it just goes in the same loop. If I Configure Manually I can see all the info and pop/smtp servers are correct and using SSL/TLS and OAuth2 but when I try to Get Messages for the account it just pops up the Google Credentials window and after I put in the username/password again no email is downloaded. There is never anything stored in Saved Passwords either so presumably the OAuth2 token is not being saved? I have tried: Reinstalling Thunderbird (including deleting any leftover Thunderbird folders in Programs and User Data) New profile Ensured Cookies are all allowed Added https://accounts.google.com as specifically Allowed exception In my Google account it says Thunderbird IS allowed access (it adds another allow access entry every time I enter the Credentials) Disabled antivirus (Kaspersky) My Gmail username and password are 100% correct - I can log into webmail using them no problem. I have tried to set up 3 different Gmail accounts and all fail with same errors. Hope you can help as I am completely stuck now, thanks

Firefox wasn't working well on a seldom-used laptop, and the update to 100.0.1 didn't go quite right, so I deleted the old version and (using the odious Edge) tried downloading a fresh copy of the software.

But then I get a message from "7-ZIP" that reads "Can not create temp folder archive"

I'm stuck. Advice?

I have changed from Ubuntu to MX Linux recently and have kept my Thunderbird profile data.

On MX TB 78 is installed.

When I copy the Ubuntu TB profile folder to my new MX install and start Thunderbird I get a message saying that "You have launched an older version of Thunderbird" (which is not the case, I launched versions 78) and that I can either create a new profile or quit the program..... Not very useful.

How can I use/import the data from my previous (Ubuntu) install? It seems likely that I had version 78 on Ubuntu as well, my system was up-to-date, but of course I can't check that anymore.

Thanks

I'm not exactly sure what this is called. Maybe it's in the cache, but I don't know. One of the fastest timesavers I have is that I use the Firefox url feature that makes suggestions as soon as I start typing a url. I pull up dozens, possibly hundreds of articles that I refer to frequently this way, so that I don't have to bother bookmarking them. I don't clear the cache, to keep these references from disappearing. I have to move computers now. My longtime mac is not working well anymore. Is there any way to bring these url suggestions with me when I migrate? Thank you.

This is not a question, but having been told you are "listening to feedback", I've been unable to find how to GIVE feedback except by "asking a question" here.

I have encouraged so many people to switch to Firefox in the past, but it seems I have wasted my breath.

This new version is truly awful. I am aware that I am going to have to put in the time and effort to get used to it (just at a time in my life when I could do without that!) so I'm battling on with nothing being where I want it to be and not being able to do what I want to do. But why on earth have you released something that's so limited, and so slow? It doesn't even have a 'forward' arrow? Or not that I've found, anyway.

Very sad, and annoying as hell.

My iMac is fried, unrecoverable... but I was able to save the whole Thunderbird folder containing Crash Reports, installs.ini, Pending Pings, Profiles and profiles.ini which I believe is everything, all my emails and accounts etc.

I have transferred the data to a Mac Pro running Mojave on a spare drive. I have installed a Thunderbird on my Mac Pro. I have tried numerous fixes but I couldn't get Thunderbird to see my emails, and it would start with Welcome and Set Up Existing Email Address which isn't what I want, but having tried a few ways I have become unsuccessfully familiar.

I have tried http://kb.mozillazine.org/Moving_your_profile_folder_-_Thunderbird "Nothing you do works" (but I think it was referring to Windows so that's not good ;) by completely deleting the profiles.ini file, starting Thunderbird and thus creating a new profile, copying the "contents" of my of my Profiles/ui1yf25m.default folder and replacing the data over the top of the newly created Profile (which has nothing of worth in it) but it keeps the newly created working Profile folder intact thus Thunderbird should see the data and load all my emails and accounts - but it didn't.

The newly created profiles.ini file had 0dcrwgtx.default (which I moved all my files into) plus it had izoic061.default-release (so 2 profiles stumped me).

Wiling to try anything :) John

A few days you asked for approval of enhancing the quality of your service. I think I did offer $37 (in 2 operations of #35 + $2). As a result you have reduced the spaces for SEND from 3 to 1 only. I would be obliged if you restore the former set of 3 spaces for sending emails. I am unhappy with your reduction of the service which I have been using for many years.

Anything else I need to take care of to take care of all the problems highlighted in the various issues without spending another hour or two? At this point I am thinking that moving to Outlook may be simpler. Thanks!
