timeout error in Thunderbird when moving an email from one gmail folder to another gmail folder

Hello!

I am migrating emails from one gmail account to another gmail account. I do this by dragging the emails on Thunderbird from one folder to another one. For a few emails only (the ones with large attachments) I get the error "Connection to server imap.gmail.com" has timed out. I am looking for a fix and how to temporarily increase the timeout threshold.

The issue happens: - always for messages with attachments >11Mb. - sometimes for messages with attachments >8Mb. - unrelated to the internet speed (either >100Mb/s or a few Mb/s) - the error pop up usually after 40s to 1min - first showing in the bottom bar "xxx@gmail.com: Connected to imap.gmail.com", followed by "xxx@gmail.com: Sending login information..." and the I finally get the popup of error "Connection to server imap.gmail.com" has timed out."

The two things I already tried, based on past posts, are: - mailnewstcp.timout increased to 1000. It doesn't seem to change anything for my issue. - mail.server.server1.timeout changed from 29 to 100. It doesn't take into account the change and revert back to 29. I didn't try anything on gmail side.

Did anyone got this issue and found a fix? Thanks in advance

I have owned my Mac Book Pro since 2014 and I inadvertently re-installed Firefox without knowing a new profile would be created. I am not able to load my old profile into the new one. I can see the "old Firefox data" folder and have tried everything Firefox has to fix this but nothing is working. I have lost 6 years of bookmarks!

Anything other tricks to fix this? Thanks!

Firefox keeps crashing, sometimes individual tabs, sometimes the whole thing. The constant "crash reason" given in the reports is: EXC_BAD_ACCESS / KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS.

I'm using a macbook, mid-2010 upgraded with SSD and 8GB RAM. (Which may be the problem right there.)

My only extensions are Facebook Container, OneTab, Reddit Enhancement Suite, and uBlock Origin. Only plugins are OpenH264 Video Codec, Shockwave Flash 32.0, and Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. (no idea about this last one).

Any ideas?

(My understanding of the inner-workings of computers does not run terribly deep...)

I just upgraded to to Mac OS Catalina and Firefox 75, and I've noticed two very strange and specific problems on certain websites.

-On Wikipedia the number 9 is displayed as an underscore _ So the year 1669 looks like 1__9, etc.

-On Blogger, in the compose mode, typing lowercase y makes nothing appear, and typing lowercase z produces quotation marks!

I tried using a different (brand new) keyboard, and the problem remained.

I tried those two websites in the Safari browser, and there were no problems.

For no reason that I can see, a pinterest "save" button has started to appear in the upper left hand corner of images in my Firefox browser. I have not loaded an extension or add-on, and I can find nothing to "disable" under Tools.

Any suggestions?
