I use Thunderbird 91.1.0 (64-bit) on Manjaro.

I want to connect to a GMail account on Thunderbird which has 2FA enabled. To do so, I created an application password on Google, and then configured everything correctly in Account Setup. When I click on "Done" after having entered my Full Name, my Email address and the Password (which is the application password freshly generated), a pop-up asking me to connect to Google appears.

However, I can't go further than the "email address or phone number" field. When I write the correct email address and press "Next", it goes back to the same field without any error message.

The picture shows in which pop-up I get stuck in. Sorry, it's in french.

Edit: I would like to add more details:

  • I had the same issue with Thunderbird on a updated Ubuntu machine recently (sorry, I do not know the version).
  • I tried to replace the "Password" by my account's password (instead of the generated application password) but it didn't work either.

Any and all input is welcome and appreciated.

Thanks for your help in advance...

Does the "Update Available" popup screen shown in the uploaded image come from Firefox? It keeps coming back it seems every time I open Firefox. I clicked "Update" a few times, but Firefox never got updated, as far as I can tell. I tried turning off NordVPN but that does not allow an update to occur. Now I just click "Dismiss" if I need to see what's behind the popup. You have to click either "Update" or Dismiss" to get it to go away. There is no "x" at the upper right on the popup screen, which would allow you to close the screen without clicking either "Update" or "Dismiss". I worry that by clicking on either I am downloading some malware. William F Briel

Setting up Thunderbird to view old emails only

I used Thunderbird on my previous laptop for many years and sorted all my emails into subfolders of Local Folders. Since I bought my new laptop nearly a year ago, I've been using the browser version of Gmail instead, where I now have a new system of subfolders. I prefer this and don't want to go back to using Thunderbird to receive and file new emails, but I would like to use it to view the emails I received and sorted on my old laptop.

So is it possible to setup Thunderbird in such a way that it can view all of my old filed emails, but so that it isn't actually connected to my email account and doesn't receive new emails? I've read online about moving files into the 'Mail' subfolder of my Profile Folder, but I don't have a 'Mail' subfolder, even when I navigate to my Profile Folder through the Thunderbird help menu and set file explorer to show hidden files and folders. Maybe this is because the 'Mail' subfolder only gets created by Thunderbird when I link Thunderbird to an email account, which I don't want to do?

From my old laptop, I kept a folder called 'Local Folders', which contains subfolders such as Archives.mozmsgs and Archives.sbd, and another folder called '[my name].default', which I think must be my old Profile Folder because it contains a subfolder called 'Mail', among others.

At the time, I was confident these were the correct folders to keep in order to migrate my old emails to my new laptop. I hope I was correct, since I don't have access to my old laptop anymore (this is stupid of me).

Thanks in advance!

I have filters working on account A. Messages are filtered to the correct folders. However, all the same messages are being downloaded into the Inbox of account B. I think I must have something wrong with the configuration of account B but I don't know how to fix it. Is it safe to try to associate account B local directory to a different local directory? Other suggestions?

Missing Emails After Backing Up Thunderbird Profile

So I use Cobian Backup v11 (Gravity) to save my folders to an external hard drive. One of the folders is the Thunderbird folder which contains backups of emails and config info to personalise the application. I ran a backup just a week ago (the end of August) After reinstalling Windows 10 and restoring my profile from the backup, I discovered I'm missing emails from April until the end of August (both received and sent). I don't know whether this is an issue with Thunderbird or Cobian Backup. Now the way Cobian Backup should work is that when it does an incremental backup (which I performed), it only saves files that have the archive flag set. The archive flag is set on a file when it has been modified and then as I understand it, Cobian Backup should clear the flag when it backs up a file. Then when new emails arrive or are sent, the composite email files are flagged for archiving again since they have changed. I'm not sure what went wrong here. Any ideas?
