Hi, Greetings to Experts here.

Lately there are too many emails I am receiving.

I would like to learn how to read the email message source for precautionary practises. Namely each email message source contains vital info on the origin email, IP, and the traffic route. However there are so much more info compact within.

How do we read these to discern credibility of the email sender, where they send from, how to tell how the email route to find out where the main origin is etc . . .

If there is a FAQ or explanatory guide, please guide me to where to find these resources.

Thank you

Hello,

This morning when I opened Thunderbird it wouldn't accept my master/primary password. I've used the same one for years, so I know I've not forgotten it. Plus it worked yesterday!

Only thing that seems to have changed is the update to Thunderbird 91.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Google has announced that after May 30, 2022 third-party apps that log into google with account name and password (which I assume includes Thunderbird) will no longer be able to do so, as they will enable 2-step verification. I currently and for years have used Thunderbird to pick up my mail from 5 accounts, 3 of which are gmail accounts. Will I be able to continue using Thunderbird after May 30, 2022? I have been unsuccessful getting any helpful information from google itself. They don't have a list of "trusted" third party apps that will continue to work with them. Anything people know about this will be helpful to me and appreciated. Thanks.

For whatever reason the Thunderbird programme files are stored on my D: drive and the profile folders are on the C: drive. I would like to have the Programme files also on the C: drive. If I uninstall it from the D: and install a new copy on the C: drive, will it automatically 'see' the profiles folder and will I have to set up user accounts or does the profile contain these? 64bit Windows 10 Pro and preparing to migrate to Windows 11 in the next year or so!

I am going around in circles here. I have searched and all the options I have found appear to be out of date or don't work. All I want to do is increase the size of the fonts I see in the left hand folders list and the folders message lists in the main panel. It's far too small for me and everything I have tried makes no difference. Please guide me.

Set up custom default search URL

I'd like to use the Startpage search as my default search in Firefox, instead of Google. And I mean the keyword-less search. I know what a search keyword is and I use several for special search engines (map, Wikipedia, dictionaries, parcel tracking, etc.). But the default search must work without any keywords.

And I want to use the custom settings they provide as URL parameters. I've tried with the cookie option but the cookie expires even after regular use. So the custom URL is the only working solution. Startpage support recommended me doing that.

I know that I can install the Startpage search to Firefox and it worked. But I can't combine it with the custom settings. So I uninstalled the extension, deleted the search engine and went to my custom startpage.com URL. Right-clicking the URL bar allowed me to add the search engine from there. But it also doesn't have my settings.

I couldn't find the search URL in about:config. Where is it stored? I need to change whatever Firefox thinks is Startpage's search URL to include my settings.

Changing the settings is critical because by default they open clicked results in a new tab which I cannot stand. I have enough open tabs, and there's still the back button.
