WE recently changed email providers so I backed up thunderbird all folders to msf files plus files without extension (sbd?) Our email address on the old server is now dead, so I cannot create an account in Thunderbird with the old settings to retrieve the emails and email addresses. Ultimately I would like these emails on an excel spreadsheet but reckoned I would have to recreate them in thunderbird 1st. I am self taught and reasonably savvy but to me this is brain surgery. Is there any wizard out there who can steer me through this minefield please with an idiot-proof guide. Thanks

TB 102.5.0 (64-bit) on Win10 I'm getting repeated notices that my e-mail accounts with Network Solutions don't have a proper "certificate" when I try to send an email. I get a popup window stating so, and asking me to "permanently" choose the exception. It doesn't matter how many times I tell the fool thing to accept the exception "permanently". I still keep getting the notice every few times. Since the glitch is not consistent, I don't have an image of one to put here. Not only that, I have to send the email twice after doing so. TB refuses to send the email the first time after choosing the exception, but allows it the second. I don't know anything about "certificates" and am sick of getting popup notices about them. I doubt that the problem is with Network Solutions email accounts. This reminds me of years ago, when I tried to upgrade to WinXP. It kept interrupting my work to give me popup security notices that I didn't understand and couldn't do anything about. If I remember correctly, I took it back to Sam's Club and replaced it with Win2000. Problem solved. Never mind that XP was supposed to be better. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I am being plagued by a spammer who spoofs the domain from which the mail shows to be sent. This spammer uses a very long (perhaps 64 characters) series of random letters for the domain, and every message has a different domain thus it's impossible to block the spam by blocking the sender because there are billions of permutations. I get 15 or 20 of these crap messages every day. They come approximately every hour. I have many, many hundreds of blocked addresses in my filter, but it's useless. They just keep coming.

I realize that I may lose a few valid messages, but I want to block any message where the sending domain is more than 50 characters. Is that possible? If not, is there an alternative solution?

 Thanks,
 John

I've started noticing most of the time now that shutting down or restarting my Arch Linux system likes to take an extra couple minutes. When checking journal logs I find some lines indicating Firefox failing to stop. More specifically, these few lines below

What might I be able to do to troubleshoot this problem?

I am not currently at the system in question, however I will try to share its troubleshooting data as soon as I can. It was installed via pacman and the system uses Gnome as its desktop environment.

I am often frustrated to find that with some sites I can see the Save this login? prompt, and I click to save it, only to find later that the website name and password do get saved, but the username/account name is NOT saved.

I can see this saved login with a search by website name, and it will display this with the text "no username" in parentheses in the username field. And I can edit it to add the username manually, to make it more useful. This does not happen with all websites...

This has been true for a couple of years, so I don't know when I first saw this.

I see a few archived posts about this or similar problems but they are not too helpful. I prefer NOT to install add-ons to fix basic functions, or to download and run javascript to modify things that are not available as a user setting, to be lost when new versions come along.

Is this a Firefox bug?

Is there a way to correct this?

Hi!

I was wondering if it is possible to disable html when adding a description to a calendar event and just use plain text instead. I use many other email tools to sync my google calendar to and every time I add or edit a description to an event I have in my calendar with Thunderbird it messes up the whole description. When I then look up the description on my phone it just displays me all the html tags that got added by Thunderbird.

Would be very usefull to be able to deactivate this feature! Or maybe someone can point me to the correct setting to disable it completely!

Thanks for your help!

In Firefox 107.0.1 64-bit (Windows 10)

When looking at the console, the response tab no longer shows rendered HTML code - the response is blank.

Only if I select "Raw" over on the right do I see anything - only code.

Is this new behaviour from Firefox, or have I inadvertently changed an option?

The only way to now see the rendered page is through the "Network" tab.

Please see images.

The minimum tab width build into Firefox is 50. I'm used to much lower from Chrome, and would like it to be lower. I have many tabs open at the same time, and being able to see them all is what I'm used to. Instead of having to scroll for long time, it's really annoying! I saw a post that there used to be an extension which let you do this, but it stopped working with an older version of Firefox. Any help is greatly appreciated. :) Have a great day!
