GMAIL DRAFT NOT DELETING AUTOMATICALLY AFTER SENDING EMAIL

I use my gmail account in thunderbirdapp on windows 11. When I start to compose an email in thunderbird app, it will create a draft after few minutes automatically (this happens when i am drafting a long email like work email that takes 10 15 mins with breaks in between). The draft gets saved in the 'draft' section in thunderbird app and also on gmail web as well (gmail android app or gmail from gmail.com). When I finally send the email from thunderbird app, the draft from the thunderbird app gets removed however the draft in my gmail web REMAINS. I do see the sent mail in the 'sent' folder in both thunderbird app as well as my gmail web or android gmail app however a copy still remains in drafts in gmail app/web. This creates an issue where i have multiple drafts in my gmail which only show when i access gmail from gmail app or on web. Please help me fix this issue. For reference some info is below regarding my setting of thunderbird app on my windows 11. The settings of the android app for drafts is set by default by the app to Kepp drafts in: other :Drafts in xyz@gmail.com. This setting was set automatically when i started using the thunderbird app. Thanks.

OK, I asked this question many months ago and still don't have a solution:

I inadvertently changed the background of my Thunderbird to black with white text. I have NO idea what I did or how to get it back. I tried this: Menu app icon (3 lines) > Preferences select 'General' Scroll to 'Language & Appearance' click on 'Colours' Text = white Background = Blue uncheck - do not select 'Use System colours' 'Override the colours....' select 'Never' Click on OK

I really hope that someone can help! Thanks in advance.

Glitch in the display of Firefox windows, maybe related to Mac OSX "spaces" and "desktops" fuctionality

Using Mac OSX El Capitan 10.11.6 and Firefox 75.15.0 esr

I have a number of desktops defined in "spaces" and each app goes into one. Something odd has happened with Firefox.

When I select a different Window from the Window dropdown, or from the Dock, sometimes there is a "sliding sideways" effect.

And if I go into Firefox by going to the Dock and tapping its icon - it goes to one window; BUT if go to the Dock and tap again, it changes to another window. I think, always the same two.

So its sort of behaving like "spaces" does, but when I view all the "desktops" in the selection view at the top of the screen, I only see one containing Firefox windows.

Its really annoying when the window changes like that, and I don't know how to get them into a single grouping. I have quit & reopened many times, but it persists.

If I knew which of the Firefox Windows were in each of these glitchy "pseudo-groups" then I might quit all of one group, and then re-open them. Not sure if there are just two such pseudo-groups, or more.

Other browsers work fine - Edge, Chrome. Firefox had been working fine and abruptly started behaving badly. I powered down my system and restarted, that's when the "Unable to connect" started. Uninstalled and reinstalled, still happening. Uninstalled and scrubbed system of all relevant traces of Firefox (didn't meddle with minor registry entries), restarted and reinstalled. Still "Unable to connect".

I have exhausted my knowledge set and the only thing I know of that I have yet to try is monitor the ethernet stack or process activity.

Thunderbird is often asking again to log into Gmail and Outlook accounts.

A few days ago the accounts I have were "disconnected" and a few days later, randomly some accounts ask me again to log in and allow access to email.

I have about 20 emails managed with Thunderbird and after a few versions (about 3-4 months) this problem started to happen.

Has anyone else reported something similar?

An observation is that I use MozBackup to make complete backups of emails (including login and password) and restore them after formatting the computer.

I don't know why this is happening or how to stop it. Today, for the second time in about 4 months, I opened Thunderbird to find that I'd been flooded with new copies of old emails. They were all marked unread, and I did a random sampling to see that all the ones I checked I already have a copy that has been marked as read, and for some of the older ones, has been archived. Today's influx consisted of 78 messages (it was about 150 messages the first time it happened) ranging in age from last week to June of 2022. I do not believe I have changed any account settings in the last 9 months, either within Thunderbird or at Gmail, where the account is hosted. In each case all the messages were confined to one specific folder--the first time it was the Inbox folder. This time it was a sub-folder named "Receipts". If I have someohow accidentally triggered this, I'd like to know what to change in order to prevent it from happening again.

How can we help? -- Not sure what to say to this question. Tell me what's wrong?

I can send messages. My ISP is Earthlink and I am running Thunderbird 115.8.0 on Windows_NT 10.0 19045 on old laptop. This seems to happen when I get new installs of Thunderbird. But usually if I do the following, then messages can be downloaded:

empty the provided folders [Inbox to Trash] compact folders clear history, cache, & disk space delete Inbox and Inbox.msf in my profile delete Mozilla cookies in Firefox [yes, I realize this is not relevant, but I am desperate] close Thunderbird, sign out of Windows session, and Shutdown or Restart

This time I have even tried Troubleshooting mode, but nothing seems to help. Another clue, Thunderbird is not always asking for my ISP's password like it usually does at the start of a session.
