I have Thunderbird installed and am on version 78. If I'm on a website and it says something like "click here to send email" or some other email link and I click on it I get a screen asking if I want to install Thunderbird. I already have installed I just need it to open the new message box. There's some communication missing somewhere.

Mailing list entries were deleted. here's what I did...

  1. o # File > new > address book > address book 2
  2. o Select address book 1 > edit > select all
  3. o Drag contacts from address book 1 to address book 2
  4.  This moved the contacts
  5.  “And it moved” the mailing list that was in address book 1
  6.  “And it deleted” the entries in the mailing list

I’m running v. 78.3.3 (32-bit) with Windows 7. additional note: the drag and drop feature to populate a new mailing list does not work--not even by holding down the ctrl key as was suggested in another thread. So the only way I know to re-populate my mailing list is to retype it.

I was trying to download Android-x86, which, apparently, nowadays, has become a little shady (too many ads, etc.); so, I chose to download from the "osdn.net" mirror, as the FossHub one just gave me "403 forbidden" errors. So I chose the file and clicked to download it; then the confirmation popup appeared, and it said the file was coming from "xtom.com" (I'm looking at it now from the Firefox Library, but I don't think that was the website... It was something else, I think...). A little while after the download started, the whole computer drastically slowed down, and I couldn't open the download tab in Firefox, I could open everything else, for example, the Bookmarks menu or the Overflow Menu, but, specifically, not the Downloads tab. It then finished, and I promptly deleted the downloaded file on Explorer. The Download tab still wouldn't open; then I restarted Firefox. When I opened the download library, lots of items are shuffled in position.

Could I be infected by a Malware just from downloading a file? I didn't even open it. But the behavior is so strange...

I was wanting to create a collection under general heading like " Accounts" then have sub collections like gas, electric each in the same collection. Kind of like having an accounts folder then inside that folder have separate folders each for a different Utility. Can I do that with firefox browser collections. Sorry if my question is not clear or silly. Thank you in advance for reading this and replying.

"Maximized Thunderbird window prevents the automatically hiding Windows taskbar from emerging when the cursor is moved down on to it. Thunderbird is the only program that does that. Is it a bug or can I adjust some settings which control that?" This question was asked and answered/solved a year or so ago but I am seeing this behaviour now (Oct 2020). I usually have my taskbar at the top of the screen but the position makes no difference. I am using Thunderbird 78.3.3 (32-bit) on a Windows 10 Lenovo laptop which is updated by my employer immediately updates become available. Suggestions?

My Mozilla Thunderbird Email will not open and keeps asking for my password then ignoring it. A message then comes up saying, "Server mail.btinternet.com has disconnected. The server may have goner down or there may be a network problem. I saw a mention system had been compromised." There is no point in asking, "Email me when someone answers the thread" because nothing is coming through. Maybe it would come though to Gmail.

The identity of this web site or the integrity of this connection cannot be verified

Popups appears many times and can be eliminated by clicking X (close) on the message. Usually about 10-20 of these appear behind the browser page. I do not see the message until I close the browser. I have tried every suggestion from many sources and can not rid the problem.

One suggestion was to change the wording on Firefox Certificate Manager deleting BUILTIN OBJECT TOKEN. I can not find access to try this method.

I have tried to delete certificates that look suspicious and they reload when you open the Fire Fox Browser.

All of the certificate popups are from sites I do not visit.

I use MyYahoo as a start page and Firefox as my default browser. Have done this for years. Today, my bookmarks at this page started loading differently in the afternoon with errors in the names and taking up a lot more screen real estate. Also, the punctuation for names of bookmarks is now defiled. The page doesn't allow me to edit them either. I thought it was a Yahoo problem, but apparently not, since everything loads normally using Chrome.

QUESTION:

hello! can I ask little help? from finland and mailbox by Elisa, pop3, mail-client thunderbird the newest version. the problem is that in my inbox-folder the subjects of the mails are present but the contents of the mails more than 5 days old are gone!!! i dont understand. mails on trashcan are ok, as well as in sent - folder. can u imagine what can be wrong here? thanks for you answer in advance.

-ocuva-

ps. i dont know how this service works? i joined with ocuva@hotmail.com to this support site.

there is a few years when I asked help here, though it went very well.

ANSWER: I can't say why contents older than 5 days are gone. Does your mail provider delete old messages if the mailbox approaches its storage limit? Do you have any rules in TB for Retention Policy (right-click the Inbox, Properties)? Are the messages still on the mail server when you open the account in webmail?

- leave messages in server lika IMAP... no ... mail will be deleted after download to the mailclient, so via webmail there is nothing.

- i dont think there suddenly is somekind of storage limit.

- i have denied to delete any messages

in inbox properties I tried to correct the inbox-folder AND NOW ARE THE SUBJECTS OVER 5 DAYS OLD GONE, TOO!

Aloha from Hawaii, I have a Windows 10 desktop computer. Many of the passwords i have stored are either computer generated or are a few of my own variables. Recently I had trouble logging in to Netflix. I called and spoke to different techies who advised me after 2 hours of "troubleshooting" to erase all my cookies "temporarily" after telling me that other clients reported similar log in trouble with clients who had FIREFOX browsers. They suggested after erasing my cookies to re=enter Netflix via my Microsoft browser, and that I could resume Firefox afterwords. We tried that, and it still didn't work. The next day I tried it again to no avail and finally reset the settings to save cookies as needed. HOWEVER, I began to discover over a period of several days that each and every one of my accounts that I use regularly with the exception of one..that stores my password in its account (plus I remember it) still works. With every other account I had tried so many times to enter with either old passwords OR new ones..and after repeated attempts over a period of time...discovered that the computer would NOT respond to "saved or remember password" instructions..and I would be told that I needed a temporary code to re enter password to reset or create a new passwd. i used every variation on Google to create new ones, use old ones and got the same dead end. Then I found that other accounts had stopped "remembering' passwords that were "memorized"..and I had to go thru the same process with them. Even in the rare occasion that I got into my gmail account, that only worked once. The next time i logged in i had to request a phone in code. Kindly advise me what is happening. Is it settings, cookies, or something else? THANKyou for your support. Aloha from Hawaii. P.S. I am wondering too if Google, which never seems to recognize my "location" or computer "thinks" i am somewhere else than my actual location in Molokai, Hawaii. Also, I don't use Google as a search engine. I use Duck Duck go, if that makes a difference. I only keep Google because i still have a gmail email account.

I suspect this is a Firefox browser issue. I worked with Outlook technical support and when I open outlook as a stand alone app., I don't have the problem. Also, my pc/laptop has two accounts on it. One for me as an administrator and one for my wife as a user. When I'm in my wife's account, I don't have this problem. Same software browser, etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hello,

we've got a problem with the window.close() function and the postback on a tab. When we open the new tab with a js function, the js window.close() works normally. But if this tab is refreshed, by a postback on button (this is an asp.net web application), firefox loses the information regarding the fact that the tab was opened via script and gives this error : "scripts may not close windows that were not opened by script". But this page was opened by a script. Why firefox loose this information??

I subscribe to a number of separate "Things" hosted by a single company (silly example) http://stuffstuff.co.uk. My user name for each of the separate things is "mr-silly@silly.co.uk" and the only thing that differentiates them is that each "Thing" requires a different password.

Thing 1 Username: mr-silly@silly.co.uk Password: 1sillything Thing 2 Username: mr-silly@silly.co.uk Password: 2anothersillything Thing 3 Username: mr-silly@silly.co.uk Password: 3moresillything

and so on...

Unfortunately this Lockwise thing will not permit this to happen, presenting the following stupid message.

"An entry for http://stuffstuff.co.uk with that username already exists. Go to existing entry?"

How do I get around this Lockwise silliness?

The email address is required as the user name by the company.

Don't suggest having a different email address for each user name, that is not possible.

While the question maybe posed in a silly manner  :-) I am quite serious about the problem. Thanks Ax
