Hi everyone,

Google seems to have a problem with the Thunderbird embedded browser.

I have seen this problem with Google's desire to over compensate for all the dummies in the world already so often, to this extend, it becomes really annoying.

I have added several Gmail accounts to my Thunderbird (always latest version) 102.1.0 at the moment. This went ok after I had the cookies on accepting.

But today I get the problem that Google has decided that the embedded browser in Thunderbird is outdated. So there is no way to verify or receive the OAuth2 token needed, to add another email account.

The login window appears, credentials can be entered but after entering the password and clicking the login button, it logs you actually in but redirects to a window that shows you a message your browser is outdated and no link on the page will work.

I have seen this in the search results only once with someone using stacks, but that is not my expertise and I have no idea on even how to copy the url from the embedded browser because it is simply not possible / selectable.

In detail: I do get a login confirmation on my phone while inserting the correct password, but instead of the adding of the email account into Thunderbird, Thunderbird hangs on verifying the password and the google window changes to a "browser is outdated" window, I am logged in however, but no link is working except log out, logging in again in the same window works but then after retrying to add the account, Thunderbird tells me the server is already existing and it will keep doing that until I close the (embedded) browser window where I am logged in.

I read in the stack post from someone else with this OAuth2.0 problem who had the same experience, that this is caused by the (thunderbird?) embedded browser window being explorer or old safari based.

Is Thunderbird (Mozilla) coming with an update to solve this, or is there a workaround for a button pusher like me??

Some string I can change in the config?? (with navigation instructions please).

Any help would be appreciated

Bare line feeds unsupported

How to Fix It It appears that your email program added invalid characters (bare line feed characters) into your message when you sent it. Try using a different email program to send your message. If the problem continues send this non-delivery report (NDR) message to your email admin for assistance.

More Info for Email Admins Status code: 550 5.6.11

This error occurs when the email program or device used to create or send an email message adds bare line feed characters into the message. When bare line feed characters are included in a message, the SMTP protocol chunking feature is required to transmit the message between email servers. Chunking uses the SMTP protocol BDAT command, but the recipient's email server doesn't support the BDAT command.

To fix the issue, the sender should send the message using an email program or device that doesn't add bare line feed characters to messages. Most modern email programs don't add bare line feed characters.

If the sender is using a device like a fax machine, printer, or scanner, it's likely an older model that doesn't support the SMTP protocol BDAT command. To fix this error, you'll need to replace the device with a newer model that supports the BDAT command. The industry standard recommendation to support SMTP chunking was published in 1998 so most devices manufactured during the last decade support this feature.

Another option is for the email admin at the recipient's domain to upgrade their email servers to servers that support the SMTP protocol BDAT command. Most modern email servers support BDAT; however, some free and older email servers don't support it."

I use GoDaddy.com as my ISP provider and they have ported all the accounts over to MS Outlook. It worked fine last week, and suddenly I'm getting this "Illegal characters" message. Any hints?

I have been using Thunderbird as my default email for years and have run into my share of issues. Out of nowhere, starting this morning, I am unable to send emails from Thunderbird at all. I spent about 2 hours on the phone with my service provider trying to figure it out. The unfortunate conclusion I have come to, is that unless you can fix this issue for me, I will be using Outlook going forward. Let me be clear, I HATE OUTLOOK! but I am running out of options other than to throw away the email address I have been using since about 1990.

This is the message I get when the email does not send. This particular one was to trs.ky.gov, but it doesn't matter who the recipient is, the only ones that don't get this message are those I send to myself.

I am trying to print shipping labels from Amazon and a third-party web app running Firefox 103.0 64-bit.

Text prints just fine but images (barcodes, etc) that need to be scaled down do not do so causing them to be truncated on the page.

I have cleared print settings and tried two different printers to no avail. The documents/images print correctly from Chrome. I have tried using the system dialog to print but this also does not correct the issue.

Any help is greatly appreciated as I currently cannot use Firefox for the essential daily task of printing packing slip / mailing labels.

After updating to Firefox 103, everything in the browser including web pages, are way too big. Oversized. What the heck happened? Why do they do this? On the tool bar with the address field, on the right, I have a zoom icon, etc., and they're all much bigger!

I could adjust zoom, but this is not right. It's all messed up!

Yes I went into Customize Tool bar - Density - and it was already set to "compact - not supported"

I went into about: config - browser.display.os-zoom-behavior - changed to zero. Nothing happened.

I went into the windows settings - display - set to 125% which it always was. Changing to 100% didn't do anything. Went into display - Make display bigger - and it's 160, where I always had it.

Not happening in Chrome or Windows. So it's Firefox.

I've downloaded a couple of add-ons this week that did not do what they claim to do, so I wanted to leave reviews so other users won't waste their time. Except when i got to do so, i am surprised to see that therte is no clear way to write a review for an add-on. I am logged into the add-ons page, i can view the previous reviews for the add-on, but nowhere does it inticate how I can leave a review. Google led me to the Mozilla add-ons wiki which states "You can complete most of the review using the reviewer tools at addons.mozilla.org" except there is no indication to where one can locate these "reviewer tools." Seems a bit funny to me that Mozilla would choose to hide the functionality and make it so difficult to use.

Any help is appreciated.

I went to migrate Thunderbird to a new PC and discovered that the Tools>Export choice is missing from the drop-down menu. Attached is a screen capture. This is version 91.11.0.

Yes, I know I should be able to move the directory over from Windows Explorer, but it seems odd that this menu is missing. The Help Center article was just updated a couple weeks ago and shows the menu, so it wouldn't seem to be a deprecated feature: [[Export your Thunderbird Profile|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/thunderbird-export]]

Is this a bug that has somehow crept into this version or does this feature need to be enabled somewhere? I don't know how else to report this anomaly other than this forum.

Currently @ Ver. 102.0.1 Problem remains. Since the update to 102.0 my Win10 PC has problems with the page update. When the scroll slider gets near the bottom the page, new images begin to load. This reload results in 3-15+ newly loaded Fb posts scrolling past so fast as to be invisible. I have to keep my cursor on the scroll slider and, when the loading begins, start scrolling up if I want to have any chance to easily find the last post I was reading. I have seen this behavior, grossly exaggerated, when I was viewing a video. The reload caused the viewing to pause and upwards of 15 newly loaded posts scrolled past in this rapid manner. My work requires that I am able to view pages of Facebook posts and this is now massively time-consuming and intolerable. I may have to change browsers in spite of my reluctance to do so.

Since Thunderbird 91.10.0 update, I cannot send messages from my Sky Mail account. Instead I get an error message saying unable to connect to this server. If I select another of my mail accounts to send the message, it works fine.

The settings (which I have been using these unaltered for years) are;

My User Name and Password are correct. I can log into my Sky Mail account direct and send and receive mails using it OK. I continue to receive mails in Thunderbird as usual without any problem.

Random videos will not load following 100.0.2 install.

These symptoms started @ May 21. (See attached file "Recently installed")

This problem is 100% reproducible at: https://www.reddit.com/r/CatastrophicFailure/

Lenovo Thinkpad x140e Windows 7 (all updates installed) Mozilla 100.2.8174

Scrolling down the Reddit page, videos will auto-play when exposed, and stop when scrolled past.

A video not loading/playing will occur on different posts/videos, but will ALWAYS occur. Once this occurs some previously exposed / played videos, when scrolling up, will play when exposed again, and some will not.

This will also randomly occur on Youtube (also observed on Twitter a few times) when multiple tabs are open. Sometimes closing other open tabs corrects the problem. Other times closing Firefox and relaunching is required and is 100% effective.

I have additional diag data / Inspector log files and page source if needed.
