I followed yahoo's authentication advice in thunderbird. Once completed one of my two thunderbird folders disappeared. What a disservice by yahoo!!!

I have all the thunderbird data backed up. But how can I get it back into thunderbird so that it's working? Can anyone help me out with that, please?

I'm not sure but I think I had POP previously and not IMAP but I'm not sure. HOW can I find that out?

When I go into thunderbird's 'troubleshooting information' page and scroll down to the 'Mail and News Accounts' section it lists two accounts:

'account1' named '(none) 'Local Folders' using a 'Normal password' 'account3' named '(imap) imap.mail.yahoo.com:993' using 'Oauth2' authentication

Obviously the second account is the one that got activated after the yahoo authentication. It's the default account. But the first one is probably what I had prior.

I looked at the folders on my computer. There is a pop.mail.yahoo.com folder which seems to contain the missing folder/data right up to the date when I did the yahoo authentication that made it all disappear in thunderbird.

Does anyone know what I need to do next? How exactly, step by step (because I don't want to screw up more stuff), do I get that data back into my thunderbird account?

Thank you!

Never had this before. I opened firefox this morning and restored the old tabs as I usually do every morning. They all opened up (e.f. tab with the correct title) but the address is empty and nothing loads.

Attempted in order: - open a new tab, would not even load google, simply a white page - same action on new window, same result - refreshed firefox= nothing - uninstalled firefox = no luck - removed the apps I installed in the last days (visual studio code) - installed firefox from scratch (no account sync) 82.0 (64-bit) nothing at all. Same result see image in attachment.

I also have: removed all cookies/cache (refresh would do any ways), scanned my computer for viruses (nothing found). It doesn't open the options from the menu, it doesn't show anything under about:config

Windows 10 2004

In 15 years I'm using FIrefox I have never seen anything like this :-o

Thunderbird freezes and gives me an unresponsive script error. Nothing responds. I have to exit using Task Manager. Win 10. This happens even in safe mode. I've rebooted several times. I don't know if it's a coincidence but my wife was setting up a new computer when this started but I can't even get to my email.

i noticed that the latest T-bird "upgrade" is completely new and unusable to me. the result was that I lost ALL my email addresses, current conversations, and more importantly my client database. I went online and got a copy of the V68 and re-installed it, but have found no way to get back all the latest emails.

I have tried most of the solutions, but they always lead to something "..back up your profiles...", but all my previous Profiles are gone and replaced w/ 4 that contain no usable info. I searched for the .mab.bak files as directed in several Help posts, but the nearest I can find is from 6 MONTHS ago and I have hundreds of messages during that 6-month time frame.

Several help ideas came to a halt because there were no such buttons found as in the directions and so had to stop.

So right now, I need to get my address book, recent email contacts and email list back and probably downgrade to V68.

PLEASE HELP ME TO RESTORE MY NEEDED FILES! My business depends heavily on my email and that is definitely not working.

Thank you in advance, Wolfgang

In recent weeks outgoing messages went slower and slower and now I can no longer send messages via smtp.aol.com in my Thunderbird v. 78.11.0 (32-bit) Windows 10 email client.

Other outgoing servers work fine in TB!

Where can I get explicit Outgoing Server (SMTP) Settings for the the current version of TB for Windows 10?

I have found many comments. Many are incomplete and unclear, and none work. I have invested many decades in TB. Have a huge directory tree and am using the calendar to good effect. Hate to give up on this email client.

Answers for TB, Windows 10 version only. Please! And answers only if you have tested your information and found it working.

Oh and "trial and error solutions" I can do myself. There has got to be a crisp answer out there somewhere. please no replies that require me to do anything but entering correct settings in the appropriate TB settings windows.

Thank you

I updated my Mozilla today and, after I closed it the last time, it just won't let me reopen. It shows a warning window saying: "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window."

I even shutted down and restarted my laptop, but it keeps giving me this same message when I try to open Mozilla. I unistalled, reinstalled... still the same warning.

Tried both close and cancel buttons, none worked to change a thing, nothing happens.

There is no messages or something, it just hangs (all tabs and Firefox open windows). There is no report bug options in Firefox, I cleared my cookies and data (the same), it's stops responding on clicking top right green button (log in) on https://www.privat24.ua/ or https://next.privat24.ua/ when window asking for phone number appears. Tried troubleshoot mode and disabling add-ons (I have only 3) - result is the same.
