I see that Thunderbird is not deleting the cache on exit/shutdown. I wanted to see if this is a bug, if I have misconfigured, or if it is not supported. I thought this was functioning properly in older versions but I can't cite specifics to backup that claim.

I have set privacy.clearOnShutdown.cache to true. When I shutdown, the files still remain in the cache2/entries subdirectory inside of the profile dir.

To confirm it wasn't a corrupt index file, I closed Thunderbird, deleted the entire cache2 subdir, and restarted Thunderbird. The cache2 directory architecture is rebuilt on startup but when I close Thunderbird again, the cache entries still remain.

Should this work (delete cache on exit)? Did I configure it correctly?

I am running Thunderbird v78.9.1 on Win10, both 64 bit.

I use Thunderbird for email. I connect to Verizon and get routed through AOL mail - I updated my password in AOL and now I can't seem to find ANY passwords when I check my security. And every time I try to re-enter the new password in Thunderbird, it isn't accepted. How can I correct this?

I use Simplify.com to track some financial data but I cannot log in from the Firefox browser. I can get to the login screen but when I click login there is a spinning circle which never stops. I think I have found ways to put this in the exceptions but nothing works. I have a similar issue with Zinio.com. I can get to the website but cannot login. For both of these sites I have to use Google Chrome to get in.

I upgraded to TBird 78 a few days back (as of today, it has already morphed into 78.9.1), and for the past few days I am unable to connect to my provider's POP email server via my email client, although can see my email on the webmail interface. I have already consulted the discussion here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/thunderbird-78-faq#w_after-upgrading-to-thunderbird-78-i-cannot-receive-or-send-email-messages Yesterday I called my provider, who told me they don't use TLS at all, but handle security in-house in some other way. A techie and I tried various configurations (also changing to IMAP) in an attempt to get by whatever is blocking my access, but nothing worked. He said that the proper remedy for this kind of problem is for TBird to issue what he called a "patch" that would fix the issue, but that we had to wait for TBird to figure this out and do it. Today I tried the remedy of reverting to lower TLS security anyway, but this didn't help either. The only other options I can think of are (1) reinstalling an older version of TBird and refusing any further updates, and (2) switching to some other email client. I don't like either option very much. Does anyone have any suggestions what else I might do? HWA

I've been slowly migrating away from Chrome to Firefox on advice from friends. All of my bookmarks from Chrome were able to be imported, but not logins and websites. I have followed all of the steps regarding privacy settings and importing such info, including making sure Chrome is closed before importing, but to no avail. In addition, when I try to manually save logins/passwords in Firefox, the dialogue box asking if I want to save this information appears and I select yes. However, when I check my saved logins/passwords, there are zero.

All of my permissions are set to allow Firefox to remember this information, yet it still doesn't after multiple attempts on my part and multiple messages from FF saying that it has successfully saved said info.

In addition, when trying to import logins/passwords from Chrome, the dialogue box says it was successful, but another yellow dialogue box appears telling me to login with my Primary Password, yet does nothing when I click on it except take me to the Logins and Passwords page.

Is there a step I'm missing in all of this that would make the browser tell me all of this is working when in fact it isn't?

Hello, I am having an problem with my VPN. It was there and now it's not (I'm sure it must be my fault). I have signed out and reset multiple times to no avail. In settings it indicates it is on, however it does not give me the option to turn it off or on. In addition the icon on the Firefox browser also indicates it's on but the does not change color as before. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thank You For Your Time.

In Preferences > Security & Privacy, I have the boxes checked to ask to save and autofilling login & password info. But the browser does not do it. It asks, but saves nothing when I answer Yes. This has been the case since I refreshed the browser at Firefox's suggestion last week. Worked fine prior to that. iMac running macOS High Sierra version 10.13.6. Thanks.

Gmail account no longer accepted on Thunderbird and Linux Mint 19.3

Hi all, I have been using Thunderbird on Windoze for decades, but am a Linux noob, so please be gentle!  :-)

The setup is Thunderbird v68.10.0 on Linux Mint 19.3 Cinnamon, only switched from Windoze10 to Linux this week so I am still learning.

Gmail account was set up and working fine on Tbird on both Linux and Win10 until a couple of days ago, when Google "detected suspicious activity on my account" and demanded I change the password, which I did. Now when I try to access the Gmail account on Tbird Linux, I get the prompt screen to enter my email details, but when I add my email address it just refreshes the screen and asks for the email address again. I have tried entering my mobile phone number instead of the email address but same result, it just reloads the page.

I tried deleting the account (but not the data) from Tbird and reinstalling the account but same result. New password in Tbird are both working fine on Win10 so it is a Linux/Tbird issue -- or user error?

I saw other threads about manually changing the password in Options, but can't find the equivalent options in Linux, and don't think that would be the problem anyway because I am not getting to the 'enter password' stage. Any thoughts?

Cheers, Terry (Confused) Chadban
