I would like to create an archive of a Gmail account, using Thunderbird with IMAP as I would like to maintain my folder (nee: label) hierarchy.

I created the IMAP account in Thunderbird, and things look good, but it seems that only the headers are being downloaded, not the entire email and attachments.

Is there a way to force Thunderbird to download everything, other than using POP? If I use POP, I would lose my labels / folders.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Dear thunderbirders!

With the increasing amount of phishing emails (and them getting better), I wonder if there is an option/extension in thunderbird, that helps me to faster decide if an Email is legitimate or not. It's about debunking the embedded links:

I'd like to not only see the link text but always see the full hyperlink (or only the domain of it) directly in the mail-text. I know that the link-adress is shown at the bottom if I hover over the link, but sometimes I'm simply not fully attentive while reading my mail, so I forget to check this....

e.g. Instead of the text " now press <<here>>" where <<here>> is the link, it would show "now press domainname:<<here>>

or enforcing that after pressing the link, a pop up opens that shows the domain name in bold and one has to press OK/not OK...

I know that may render some emails rather unreadable, but maybe with a keyboard shortcut, one could then quickly disable it...

Just thinking out loud... does this make any sense?

I clicked on the Private Network icon when FF loaded, before I got the prompt to input my master password. After I input my master password FF crashed. After restarting FF, Now Private Network is asking me to "Login to FF account" when I click on the already dimmed Private network account. But, I'm already logged in. Also, When I enter my user/pass on the prompt to login again, I get a alert to check email and put the code in... That code never works(see attached screenshot). I get a red alert bar on the email code screen that there is a security issue.

So is there a timeout for such a issue? or ?

For whatever reason, I had five different CNN email adds bounce back to me yesterday, and another one just now bounced back in Firefox. Todays bounce back or failure, is shown in the image I attached below. I'm not an IT PROFESSIONAL, and since errors like this happen so RARELY, i don't understand just what the reason is, for all these email attempts, failing to be delivered. If I knew what was causing it, maybe some setting that needed changing, or something has been corrupted, I could reinstall, that would help me solve this. But, I can't understand what all this is trying to tell me. Does anyone understand this, and can help explain it to me? Thank you.

Hello,

Just recently there has been issues with how a job search at Glassdoor.com is appearing via my Firefox browser. It seems that the formatting is all messed up, and everything gets shoved to the left margin, and there is no scroll bar. (See first image)

If I reduce the size of the zoom level, I can see the search results actually have appeared, but they are shoved even further to the left margin and no scroll bar again. (See second image)

This only happens with anything connected with a job search at Glassdoor.com. Salary search, company search, etc are all fine, just the job search, which is really inconvenient since I am actively looking for a job.

I've attached images of this for you.

The job search pages work fine in Chrome. Please don't make me use Chrome.

Thank you,

Sheri

My company recently gave us new email addresses which are with office365. I have been using TB for many years and never had issues until now implemanting this email address. TB sets up the email automatically OK and I can receive emails but it times out when sending. I have reviewed the current TB help forums however they seem to deal with whether or not an exchange server is being used. I've asked our IT guy if IMAP is enabled for this email account and am waiting a response. However I can receive email OK with the IMAP setttings so I have to believe that this is OK. The account works using their webmail system so I think it has to be one of my settings however I've tried all the combinations without sucesss. TKX

I'm having similar issues to described here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1090728

The search bar in the "Awesome bar" has stopped offering search suggestions, either from my search history or from Google itself. When I control-click in the search bar, "search suggestions" has a check next to it, and it is also ticked in the Preferences.

This started last week when i migrated to a new iMac.

I went through all of the troubleshooting steps described in the article above but still no suggestions in the address bar.

I'd like to continue using Firefox but this is a deal breaker. What can i do?

So I tried to update my email address on my account and it says I already have an account with that email. I tried to log into that account but it apparently had 2FA in place that I cannot recover. I don't care at all about any of the sync data that is in the account tied to that email, is there really no way to have the account deleted so I can reuse that email address?

Hi,

Today I installed the new Firefox 74 but now my multirow bookmarks toolbar is not working correct anymore. They are not side by side, they are now among one another. See attached screen, ca. 75% of the screen is used by the bookmarks.

The following code is contained in my userChrome.css file:

/* Multi-Row Bookmarks Toolbar Firefox 66+ */

#PersonalToolbar {
  min-height: unset !important;
  max-height: unset !important;
/* text-align: center !important; */
}

#PersonalToolbar #PlacesToolbarItems {
  overflow-x: visible !important;
  overflow-y: visible !important;
  display: inline-block !important;
}

#PlacesToolbarItems > .bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-icon[label]:not([label=""]) {
  /* Reduce padding on individual bookmarks to fit rows closer together */
  margin-inline-end: 0px !important;
}

Does anybody have a solution for this?

PS: If you need more info, please ask...

When I switch my Firefox to fullscreen it overlaps onto the taskbar (as you see in the picture I attached below) Can someone help me fix this? Turning on the Titlebar fixes this but I don't want the Titlebar to be on. This is a seriously big and annoying issue. I have tried reinstalling and refreshing my browser and even disabling windows color from being applied to the taskbar but it doesn't help. Its as if Firefox has an extra piece to it in fullscreen. If I click on the taskbar it overlaps back onto Firefox but then if I open start (as you can see in the second picture) that extra piece of Firefox is still there.
