Own 4 machines (2x win7 with serversetting POP, 2x win8.1 with serversetting IMAP). All machines have Thunderbird version 31.0 (dutch) installed. The IMAP machines will erase downloaded messages from the server. Unfortunatley I cannot find the setting to leave these messages on the server. Now when I use the win7 machines with POP setting (after the one of the other Win machines with IMAP setting were used) the messages will not appear anmore. On the machines using POP on the server settings screen this option for leaving the messages on the server is clearly shown (and active), wereas on the others it is not shown at all. Please clearify.

New computer running Win 7. Install FF no problem. But then the icon disappears from the Start Menu and from the Taskbar.

When I go to the program location C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox there is only the generic icon for firefox.exe.

Program seems to work fine, but this is annoying. Thanks for the help.

I tried to remove Yahoo by uninstalling and re-downloading the latest version as previously instructed but it is still there on the new installation. I am not a technician and do not want to start searching or removing registry places. I never asked for this service to be placed on the Mozilla page and I watched very carefully when downloading the program but there was no tick or untick place. It would be appreciated if someone could please explain in simple terms how to get rid of it PERMANENTLY

Hi, i am using version 31.6.0 of Thunderbird on Linux Mint 17.1. I've searched everywhere and tried all different configurations I found. Nothing seems to work. I get errors similar to "Login to server outlook.office365.com" failed (and no it is not a password issue). I suspect it has to do with exactly what server it's hitting (tried many different recommended ones). It works using firefox outlook web access. Anyone have a solution before I give up ? ps- here is a sample of my current settings :

Account name: myname@mycompany.com Name: my name e-mail : myname@mycompany.com IMAP Server name: outlook.office365.com port 993 (also tried defaults for pop, etc) User Name: myname@mycompany.com (pretty sure I also tried My name) Connection security : (SSL/TLS (also tried others) Auth method: Normal (tried others)

Windows 8 deleted my user profile last night for reasons unknown. So today I am in the process of setting up a new profile, emails on thunderbird, basically everything (cheers windows 8).

Decided to stick my hotmail and gmail accounts onto thunderbird as well as my work. All work fine apart from gmail. Basically it will not recognise my username or password.

"Configuration could not be verified - Is the username or password wrong?"

Deff not. I have signed in and also changed the password specifically because of this error. Both are in working order. I have rechecked...........waited 30 mins and tried again....... closed and reloaded Thunderbird.........rebooted the computer.

Not sure what the issue is so any help would be appreciated.

When I view databases through Firefox, the date/day format is set at month, day, year (US style), whereas I need day, month, year, I work in the UK and the "wrong" format is VERY confusing and could lead to errors/mistakes. IE has that format but I don't want to revert to using that.

I'm wanting to update my thunderbird adsdress book on my travel computer which I haven't used for a year with new addresses that have accumulated on my main computer during this past year. or if need be replace the travel computer address book with my main computer's address book, whatever works. Have windows 7. IOW I am not migrating to a new computer, and I don't want to just replace everything on the travel computer with new files, just want the address book there. It is ok, if it is a separate address book from what is already there, though it may be good to delete the old address book.

Hi there, I have just had to upgrade and get a new Pc and it has windows 8.1 which is awful. I only like to use firefox as my browser. I have tried to install it but it won't work. I cannot find any up to date information on the web as to whether firefox can be installed with Windows 8.1 I have a 64 bit operating system. Is there a way to do this? Or if not does anyone know if it will be available soon, or i'll have to use chrome which i don't like as much. I don't have much technical knowledge to do complicated things. I wonder if it works well on Windows 8 if i try and downgrade..... Not sure i know how to do that/ Any help be appreciated. thanks

Hello there, Mozilla........)

I have just checked my add-ons and I have been told to update my Shockwave Flash. I clicked on 'update now' and it sent me to a page where it details potential problems with the version I have and to update to version 14.0.0175 which (I think and hope) it did update. However, when I restarted my computer, I checked again and it still is saying 'update now'. As I will honestly admit, I am not all that 'tech savvy' and am not sure what I should do next. I would be extremely grateful if someone could get back to me with some advice on what I should do.

Yours sincerely
