I keep getting spam from specific domains, and I have filters that I have to mark them as read/junk and then delete so I don't even have to deal with them. But the adaptive junk mail controls keeps intercepting them and moving them to the spam folder instead. The adaptive junk mail controls does catch plenty of messages I wouldn't be able to filter, and I like being able to make sure whether or not something it filters something is real spam or not, and it goes either way regularly. But if I know a specific domain is spamming me, I should be able to have these filters run and delete them so I don't ever have to look at them. So, is it possible to get filters to run before the adaptive junk mail controls? I have it set to filter before junk classification, but that doesn't do anything. If my filters could run automatically in the spam folder, that would also take care of the problem, but there's no way to do that.

Thunderbird Address Book issues (sharing and diferent versions)

I have been using T-bird 26 for years, but needed to upgrade for some reason, so on one computer only (I have 3,) I went straight to V91. The other two are still using V26, and I don't want to upgrade them till I get the bugs worked out of 91.

In the past I was able to share my eight address books across the computers by making a folder in My Documents called MyAddressBooks, then use Mega to synchronize the computers.

Then, I created some windows links to point the various .mab filenames in my T-bird profile to the sync'd files. (I had to make a separate link for each of my 8 address books. abook.mab, abook-1.mab, etc...)

This does not seem to work with V91. I created the links but V91 doesn't recognize the new address books.

As a test, I created a new address book (in V91) then found 3 new files in my profile called abook-1.sqlite, abook-1.sqlite-shm, and abook-1.sqlite-wal.


So, a couple of questions...

1) Did the name of the address book change from a .mab file to several sqlite files?

2) Am I safe to upgrade the other 2 computers to V91, then create links to all the new file names? I guess there will be 24 links I need to create now. Eight wasn't enough.


And some comments...

Why the hell was it necessary to go through all these hoops to simply share an address book across computers?

Why can't I tell T-Bird where my address books are located, and why did they force me to place them in my profile folder?

What advantages does it serve to go from a .mab file to a .sqlite file? (I assume the reason for this was to use a different database manager for the address books? Seems to me the old one worked just fine.)

Why call them abook-1 and abook-2, not simply use the name the user call's it when he creates it?

Thanks Mark.

Android Firefox 92.1.1. A recent update has changed and I think broken scroll-to-hide for the address bar.

I have address bar set to the bottom of the screen. Scrolling down hide the bar as expected.

Until a recent update, *any* scrolling up would restore the bar. However now it will only restore when the up-scroll is in the very last page or so of the whole page.

This means I'd you scroll down a long page, you need to spool and spool back up even to get the address bar back. That seems wrong.

Is this an intentional change? It make auto hide much less friendly if so.

In Windows 10, the upgrade from Thunderbird 91.1.0 to 91.1.1 fixed a couple of notification problems. However, the verion 91.1.1 brings with it a new problem - the number of 'new' emails shown in the badge is incorrect. TB actually shows (new emails) x (number of times server is checked since last download). Clearly someone has forgotten to reset a counter somewhere. I have TB server setting set to scan every 15 minutes. If I receive 1 new email but do not download for say 50 minutes, then TB will simply show that I have 3 new emails (=3 scans, 15 minutes apart) instead of 1.

ok

I did some reading and i think i understand but i really want to make sure

I have a webmail account that i want all my emails to have a local backup on my computer

i believe i need to do pop3 with the option selected to leave emails on server

that reasoning is because i just want to backup emails on my computer with thunderbird not at this time use thunderbird full on instead of webmail/browser email. possibly in the future

it appears that i should not use imap because imap acts like a mirror? i dont want to mirror my emails i want to make a copy somewhere else that i can always have

so pop3 with that option to leave mail on the server is what i should do?

i think so....

....right?

Firefox leaves full-screen mode when window manager remaps window to be in a frame and re-sizable.

In the window-manager that I use (KDE plasma), I can ask the window-manager to exit full-screen mode, without telling the window. This allows me to tell a window to be in full-screen mode, while in a framed window. I have attached a screen-shot of chrome showing a youtube video. Both youtube and the chrome are in full screen mode, however the window manager has re-sized it and added decorations (title-bar&frame), and is allowing me to resize, move, minimize, maximize, etc.

This works for every program that I have used (that has a full-screen mode). However it is not working for Firefox. It seems that Firefox is triggering off of the wrong event.

My guess: the window-manager sets NET_WM_STATE_FULLSCREEN to enter full-screen, and would normally clear this attribute to exit full screen. When we exit full-screen, but stay in full-screen mode, the attribute is not cleared. However Firefox is triggering off of something else such as a re-size event.

Use-case: What I am trying to do

  1. Enter full screen mode: browser hiders tab-bar, and address bar, maybe web-page changes layout (e.g. you-tube resizes video player to fill window)
  2. Tell Window-manager to leave full-screen-mode, but not inform browser (or other app). Browser is now still hiding tab-bar, address-bar, site is till showing video in whole-window, but window can be moved and re-sized.

This works for every other app that I have user. (Some apps don't have full-screen-mode, so this does not apply to them. But it works for all that do have it.)

Hello,

Windows 10 Desktop Computer Updated, Firefox 92.0

The folder I need yo go to in Documents, it goes to Downloads Instead Automatically!

When I try to get an attachment, for an email I'm sending out, it goes to the wrong folder. It just sits there doing nothing, with the hour glass on. I wait and wait, so I can change the location. Most times it doesn't stop. A very few times, when that stops, I located which folder I need, and it just goes into the hour glass mode again!

If I click on the screen, an error message comes up with something like, program not responding, do you want to close the program? or wait until it stops? With thus, I think it's dealing with the Folder that isn't responding! BUT no, when I click to close the program, LO And Behold, Firefox Closes!

I have a lot of attachments, I need to deal with. It doesn't ask me, which folder I want to get the attachment from?

Any Help Here?

Thank You!! Take Care!! Everyone Stay Healthy and Safe (Pets Also)!!!

I have a number of problems with T/Bird which I suspect are all connected: Occasionally an email appears momentarily in in box then instantly disappears and cannot be found in other boxes - drafts, all mail, trash or spam. Some emails by-pass in box to spam but there is no pattern to this. Emails from same source can go to either. Often emails I have sent do not appear in sent or all mail, and some emails I have sent to trash cannot be found. I have followed advice and checked settings several times and as far as I can see they are all correct. Is this a common problem and do you have step by step instructions to overcome this? One obvious answer is to uninstall and re-install T/Bird but being old and not tech savvy I am concerned about losing emails and not being able to start again Thanks

Thunderbird does not fetch e-mails from gmx.de-account anymore. Thunderbird shows that I have new e-mails from this account but does not show the e-mails. The inbox is empty.

Thunderbird fetches only those e-mails send from my own gmx.de-account and those from a certain gmail.com-account that belongs to a person who keeps sending unwanted e-mails.

How can this be fixed?

Hi!, Due to a dell laptop (win 10) with a bad keyboard, and I have co-ordination issues, somehow deleted a lot of mail into gmail which labelled it as spam, trashed it and thunderbird seemed to be under control of gmail and deleted all messages too. It was supposed to keep EVERYTHING.

1. Can i get that mail back? I wasn't backing up but after i've been copying profile.

2. Trying to adjust text size and can't scroll to the file since everything is too big for the window but found this - hopefully ok to post screenshots.

v92

This issue started happening only after v92 self-installed, as far as I can tell.

When I start typing in the address bar, even one letter, websites I frequently visit immediately autocomplete. I do NOT have these websites as saved bookmarks. I have cleared history within Firefox, with CCleaner, and with Privazer, but doing so does not affect this behavior. (CCleaner and Privazer also clear everything else, as far as I can tell.)

In Settings, under "Address Bar > When using the address bar, suggest", I have Bookmarks checked. If I uncheck Bookmarks, the behavior stops. BUT AGAIN, I DON'T HAVE THESE SITES BOOKMARKED.

I did a search in C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla for files containing the web addresses and found that they are contained in a filed called SiteSecurityServiceState.txt in one of Profiles (not the current one as far as I can tell). I don't know if this is relevant. And when I alter the web address in this file (e.g., change abc.com to axxbc.com) and save the file, the auto-complete behavior doesn't change.

Finally, I have an Excel file with hyperlinks to my favorite news and blog sites, which I use frequently. These are the same sites that are auto-completing. But if I delete this file, the behavior still occurs. I don't know how the existence of such a file could cause the behavior, but I thought I'd mention it.

Anyway, does anyone know where these addresses could be coming from or stored? Thanks.

This is to report multiple issues with Thunderbird Version 91 on Fedora Linux. (I have also entered Bugzillas for these.) I upgraded from Version 78, using the standard Fedora repos.

1. Cannot Send Mail

My setup defaults to include my own address in the Bcc field. When I go to create a new message, entering an address, I see the Send button is grayed out. If I delete my address from the Bcc field, the Send button appears to become active. However, attempting to send the message fails--in fact, nothing at all happens when I click the (apparently active) Send button.

When replying to an e-mail, nothing I do (e.g., clearing the Bcc field) activates the Send button. And, nothing happens when I hit Send.

I have tried Troubleshooting mode and results above are the same.

2. Loss of Address Book

After the upgrade to version 91, my address book appears to be empty. However, entering part of an e-mail address in the To: field that I *know* is in the address book auto-completes. Thus, it would appear the application has some access to the data in the address book, even though I cannot see it.

(Due to these issues, I have downgraded to Version 78; address book is completely gone now. Presumably, Version 91 did some conversion that isn't reversible in a downgrade.)

3. Loss of "movemail" mailbox.

Local system mailspool no longer visible as "movemail." This can be re-enabled in Edit->Account Settings->Account Actions.

I have been using Thunderbird email for numerous years.

At the end of June (2021) I started a summer-long vacation in another state, and prepared a laptop (Win 10) computer for the trip (with Thunderbird installed, of course.

Around July 5th I tried to peruse my email using Thunderbird on the laptop and was unsuccessful.... Zoho kept rejecting my email account password(s).... "login to server imap.zoho.com with username xxxx@xxxxx.com failed" (see attached)

I had the same issue with my account at gmail.com (Google mail) using Thunderbird. I have no other email accounts.

I assumed I had made some sort of mistake in the Thunderbird account settings on the laptop, but I had no way to compare the settings to my home computer (nobody there at my home and I was away on an extended trip)

Zoho was unable to assist me with Thunderbird. I assumed I did something wrong when I configured Thunderbird on the laptop and tried numerous parameter alterations without success.

I am able to access my email accounts at Zoho when I go to zoho.com directly, but compared to Thunderbird their interface is unwieldy and doesn't allow much screen space for email content (and, of course, I'm not able to save read emails to my Thunderbird local accounts).

I just returned from my extended trip and find that I now have the same issues on my home desktop computer, which was working fine when I left the last week of June. It (Thunderbird on my home desktop computer) also, rejects logins to my email accounts at Zoho and at Googlemail. Strangely, I can read new emails in the Thunderbird email accounts, but I am unable to reply to them or forward them.

The only logical explanation I can come up with is that an automatic update caused these issues. In fact, my home computer has a Thunderbird icon on the desktop that I'm not certain was there before (I keep most of my important program icons in program category folders on my desktop and in my quick-access bar at the bottom of my Win 10 desktop screen... so if an icon shows up on my desktop, I assume it is because of a product update). I am currently at Thunderbird 78.14.0 (64-bit).

I am trying to think of ways I can verify that an automatic update caused the issue.

I am able to log in to my email accounts by directly using zoho.com or google.com, but much prefer Thunderbird. I am hoping for suggestions as to why neither of my Thunderbird copies (desktop and laptop) are able to log in to receive email.

Thoughts and suggestions????
