HI, basically since I updated to TB 78.2.2 it stopped receiving emails on IMAP Dovecot/postfix server (my own server) ... gmail etc still works

I tried to delete a pw of one account to reeenter it, but Thunderbird only shows “connected to dan@myserver.com” … but it does not download the new mails nor asks me to reenter the PW

any idea what this is? also tried in secure mode, add ons deactivated etc.

Ok so just updated Thunderbird to the latest version. Now not receiving emails. All the settings are correct. I have all my old emails just not receiving any new ones. I’m still receiving emails through to my iPhone so there is nothing wrong with the email server.

I tried removing an email address and re-adding it but now it won’t download any old messages and still won’t receive any new emails.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Ever since the Version 78.2.2 update was inserted early on 9/16, I am no longer receiving any of my messages from my RCN host site. When I go directly to the RCN Webmail site, the messages from 9/16 to the present are there. They just aren't getting loaded into Thunderbird like they were before the update. I checked the settings and the "pop.rcn.com" entry is correct and there as before. Is anyone else having this issue?

Have been using Thunderbird with the same email profile over the years but after Thunderbird upgraded to 78.2.2 when I started it today, it failed to download any new emails from server. I checked the account profile and the details are still correct. When clicked on Get Messages, the message: connected to <myemailserverdomain> appeared and then the message disappeared without moving on to downloading (no status bar). I checked my email account through the web portal and there are definitely new emails there. Please help!

Automatically upgraded to 78.2.2 from 68 without support -- manual fixes

I have been running on the older version of Thunderbird 68.12.0 for some time to wait for any extensions to be updated for the new coding standards. Yesterday, I got a message internally to upgrade Thunderbird, and, without any warning, it updated me to 78.2.2. It says on the website that this upgrade will not be made until a version comes out that handles the changes needed for the upgrade. Sure enough, while my emails seemed to be fine, two extensions were disabled. I first tried to uninstall and go back to 68.12.0. However, the earlier version indicated my profile had been upgraded and could no longer be used by that older version. I went back to 78.2.2.

I believe I have dealt with the issues. The two extensions that were disabled were TbSync and the related Provider for CalDAV and CardDAV. Those both did have a new version online. I ended up having to delete both plugins, then install the new versions clean, and then re-setup each to sync to my Google account. For a while I seemed to lose all my calendar entries. However, after the clean install and complete new setup, they seem to be working again, and I got my calendar entries back. My extension Xpunge was not disabled, but it stopped working. It did not even appear anywhere to call (it was listed under Extensions). I found a newer version of that, also. I downloaded it, and it upgraded to the newer version. When I found the settings, I had to redo them, but now that seems to be working. Two other extensions I had seem to already be versions that are compatible. I have my extensions set to automatically upgrade when new versions are available. I assume they did not upgrade before because the newer version compatible with 78.* is not compatible with 68.

I think I am OK for now. I am just responding here to bring attention to the fact that upgrades are being made even though they are not supposed to be, and others will likely need to do a lot of manual work to get back to where they were. I recall an earlier upgrade to Firefox, I believe, that I did not make until a version was offered that did all the sorting out of extensions as part of the upgrade. That went very smoothly. I assume Thunderbird plans to create a similar version at some point. However, some setting must be off, so upgrades are being made with that support. If there is anything else I need to do to manually adapt for the upgrade to 78.*, please let me know.

Thanks. I really do appreciate having a good alternative email and calendar like Thunderbird.

Thunderbird 78.2.2 very slow for 10 minutes after startup. Cpu hog when started online (15-20% CPU and flashes of 'Not responding' but nothing to download) but runs normally when started offline and then switched to online. (Win10, 3 imap and one pop3)

Hello, My Thunderbird 32bit installation upon Microsoft 10 64bit installation just upgraded itself to 7.2.2 and produced a severe performance problem after initial startup. The response to attempts to navigate through the folders is very slow. The Microsoft Task Manager shows that Thunderbird is constantly busy 15-20% Cpu usage and flashes of 'Not responding' although the program has nothing to download.

There 4 accounts configured (3 imap and one pop3) and there are lots of folders with stored emails. There is one Lightening calendar configured.

The performance issue continues for about 10 minutes and then disappears so the system becomes as responsive as it was before the upgrade i.e. instantaneous.

I cannot tell you what release I was on before the upgrade. Any suggestions Patrick

I have two Mac OS machines. On one it was easy, I clicked to update TB and it switched from 68 to 78 as a completely normal update, nothing special, and without any problem. Perfect.

However, on the other, I did exactly the same but all I get is the spinning baseball. I tried re-installing TB but still get the spinning baseball. I force quit TB and restarted but still get the spinning baseball. I left it spinning for half and hour and then was told that the app memory was full and that TB was not responding. So I currently have no access at all to any emails, stored or otherwise. And cannot access any menus or anything.

Complete disaster: any ideas how to save the day?

I have used Firefox for many years now and love it and keep telling my friends and colleagues to switch to this browser rather than Google Chrome.. There is something that happens irregularly with my 'pinned tabs', every now and again when I close Firefox the next time I open it up, they are all gone. I go through history and replace them and 'Pin' them and its all fine for a while then it happens again. Most recently - in the last two days it has happened twice, it takes some time for me to restore the tabs and pin them, then I have gone into 'Options' and I have set the box (ticked it) for 'Restore previous session' but its not happening. Also when I go to the 'three bars' up on the top ribbon on the far right the option to 'Restore previous session' simply isn't there! I have no idea what is happening but its very frustrating and I would really appreciate some answer as to what might possibly be going on? Many thanks for your time, much appreciate and love your work everyone.

hello ...

yesterday Firefox updated itself on my tablet ( hung on the charger while I was at work ). In the evening all my open tabs were closed, the bookmarks were gone and FF was set as default browser. Where did my tabs and bookmarks go ? Auto update is / was disabled - default browser is another browser for good reason. FF runs / ran there actually permanently and was only sent into the background. Because the tablet should not be synchronized because of special software, the bookmarks only exist there. Why were they removed during a normal update ?

Before the Daylight update I was able to disable loading of all images from the advanced settings options in the settings.

That's gone now. That feature isn't in any of the major competitors either. Vivaldi, Edge, Brave, Chrome. No setting for that. I'm very frustrated with that. What now?

I'll be a lone voice on some help forum where my request for the return of this simple feature will be ignored for years?

This feature going to come back anytime soon?
