Hello,

When I select text in Firefox the selection is not highlighted. The selection itself does work (e.g. deleting a selected word) but is not visible. The problem occurs in all fields where text can be entered, so the URL space, the search field but also text field on a page like this one. The strange thing is that the problem also occurs in Thunderbird.

I am using Ubuntu 18.04.6 LTS, Firefox 99.0 and Thunderbird 91.8.1

Hi, I am using Thunderbird 91.5.0 and Firefox 96.0 on Windows 10 19042.1415.

When Firefox is not already running and I click on a link in an eamil received in Thunderbird. Firefox opens but not the URL pointed to. Any action in the Firefox window will not work. In task mananger I can see that 3-4 Firefox instances are open plus a background process with Firefox. When I "kill" all instances of Firefox in the task manager. Open Firefox from the windows probgram bar and click on a link in the email it works ok.

I have tried everything I read in your "help" pages but no matter how I set up Thunderbird for Email I cannot get it to send. I recently had to purchase a new computer that has Windows 11. Is Thunderbird unable to work with Windows 11? I'm so frustrated at this point & need HELP. For your information the SMTP is set up as: description: [edited email from public] @skybeam.com Server Name: securemail.risebroadband.net Port: 465 (I've tried 587 but it doesn't make a difference) User: My Email Address Authentication: Normal Password Connection Security SSL/TLS

Note: I've checked Thunderbird & the passwords on both Incoming & Outgoing is correct.

I use Mozilla Thunderbird for my e-mail manager. I have AOL and Yahoo mail accounts that I manage via Thunderbird. The new security requirements from Yahoo and AOL require me to remove my e-mail accounts from Thunderbird and add them back into Thunderbird. After I add the accounts to Thunderbird, the system then has me login to the Yahoo mail account. I am getting an error message that says my browser (in my case, Firefox) is not allowing cookies. I have changed all of the Privacy and Security settings that should allow cookies (according to Mozilla Help) and am still unsuccessful. I am at a loss on what I am supposed to do to allow cookies.

After update to 78.3.2 there is more white space between the list of messages in the folder view (and more white space between folders in the folder tree view). This is very annoying - I just bought a bigger screen to see more, and now it is consumed to show white space. I need to have more compact view in both the folder tree and the message list. There seems to be no customization option for that -please help!?

Hello, I receive two messages repeatedly, on my Orange address. This is not the case if I use Orange mail, only with thunderbird. For the first, I put a filter that removes it, but it doesn't work with the second. This repetition saturates my messaging and prevents me from receiving other messages.

Bonjour, Je reçois deux messages de façon répétitive, sur mon adresse Orange. Ce n'est pas le cas si j'utilise Orange mail, seulement avec thunderbird. Pour le premier, j'ai mis un filtre qui le supprime, mais ça ne marche pas avec le second. Cette répétition sature ma messagerie et m'empêche de recevoir les autres messages.

I routinely use Thunderbird to access my three gmail accounts. Google have recently introduced two-step verification on one of these accounts - after I put in my password it sends a message to my mobile asking me to verify my identity. I am now unable to get in to this account via Thunderbird, presumably because Thunderbird can't handle the extra login step. It says I need an "application-specific password". I have no problems with my other two gmail accounts - though if Google introduce two-step verification on these I'll presumably not be able to get into them via Thudnerbird either. As far as i know I'm using the latest version of Thunderbird - I certainly get auomatic updates.

Can anybody help? John

Hi,

I have been experiencing on and off problems with the outgoing e-mail. It says it failed to log in my account. With all of my accounts.

Nothing changed as far of the settings go, I triple checked them even with my provider. The problem seems to be in Thunderbird. If I use another e-mail program I don't have any problems. Also tried after disabling all of the add-ons but same problem.

Is this a bug?

Love to hear how we can fix this.
