Help! ... I now use Yahoo Mail accounts on Thunderbird. I keep getting a window pop-up: "Server imap.mail.yahoo.com has disconnected." and Thunderbird stops working. This has been going on for over a month and I thought re-addressing AuthO2 thru Yahoo Accounts would have stopped these pop-up windows, but nope. This is frustrating as I use Thunderbird for our business as well as personal. I have to constantly reboot Thunderbird to get it working again for around 10 minutes before it goes down again & I have to re-boot. What's going on here? The complete message in window pop-up reads: [ Server imap.mail.yahoo.com has disconnected. The server may have gone down or there may be a network problem. ] I've never had this problem with Gmail accounts or Verizon accounts before we transferred accounts to Yahoo & I've been using Thunderbird for over 25 years. Please help, as I need a stable e~mail program for our business. Would appreciate it & thank you in advance. goCaT

Firefox just automatically updated. Now whenI try to open I get 2 messages -

First one- firefox.exe- Bad Image "C:backslash Program Files backslash Mozilla Firefox backslash xul.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing ......"

Second one - couldn't load xpcom.

I do not want to lose my last session- I have many open tabs when I closed it last night that need to be there when I restart.

How to downgrade Thunderbird 64 bit to 32 bit

Hi all, I have two computers both running Windows 10 and both have Thunderbird 78.14.0 but one of computers is running Thunderbird 78.14.0 (64-bit) whilst the other is running 78.14.0 (32-bit). The one running the 32 bit works fine and prints everything no problem but the PC running the 64 bit has a horrible layout and the messages that are saved in the sent folder look different and printing is horrible. Is this an issue with the 64 or 32 bit or is it something that is different in the settings. If I downgraded to 32 bit would that solve the problem ? If so, how to I downgrade Thunderbird from 64 to 32 bit ? Thank you.

I used to create desktop shortcuts to websites by dragging the padlock thumbnail to the left of the URL to the desktop. (see first image)

Now it does not create a shortcut but instead creates a file on the desktop with a .URL extension.(see 2nd image) Double clicking on the file will take me to the website, but as a file and not a shortcut, I cannot modify the name displayed or change the icon displayed.

Am I looking at something new in version 96 or have I inadvertantly changed something in the settings?

Hello there !!!

Today I had serious damage to my Mozilla Firefox. When I started up Firefox I realized that I lost all my opened tabs on all my (three) opened windows, although I had checked the box "Restore previous sessions" in the settings section.

I opened "settings" and I saw this box unchecked !!!!!

The unfortunate event of this failure is that I restarted Firefox and even worse I restarted the PC.

Now I wonder, after all these, if there is a way to restore all my lost TABs that, I believe, there are hidden somewhere...

I am using Aol mail for my verizon email account. On Wednesday 1/19/22 I no longer could access my emails with Thunderbird. I removed my account and then added it back but I now get "unable to login at the server" message. I know my password is correct because I am able to login to Aol using the web interface. Thunderbird is able to find other settings such as

For Incoming server: Protocol: POP3 Hostname: Left blank for confidentiality) Port: 995 Connection security: SSL/TSL Authentication method: Normal Password Username: My first and last name

For Outgoing server Hostname: SMTP.verizon.net Port: 465 Connection security: SSL/TSL Authentication method: Normal Password Username: My first and last name

Was there a change in the latest release of Thunderbird 95.1.0 on 1/13/21 that could be causing this problem? Any other thoughts on what could be causing the issue?

Hi, Firefox brings my computer to halt after a few minutes of usage. The only thing I did after opening the browser is go to support page and the FirefoxCP WebExtensions process memory usage went over 20 GB of memory.

I have tried restarting my MacBook a few times as well as restarting firefox, but nothing has helped. I’ve the latest version of FireFox installed, and using a MacBook Pro with 16GB of memory.

I haven't made any changes nor added anything new lately. I think it may have started after the last update.

Thank you for your time and support!
