Hello, I use Thunderbird (since years) version 78.5.0 under Windows 10. This morning all was ok, but this afternoon it refuses to collect my mail. I searched for the problem in help for Thunderbird and found a solution : in the pop email server setup I changed the security of the connection to None (it was SSL/TLS). And it works. My question is : do I now have a security problem ? Thanks.

Clicking on links within emails no longer opens the page in my browser. I followed the different steps in this article (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/hyperlinks-in-messages-not-working), specifically the following:

  • Confirmed that Chrome is set as the default browser
  • Checked that no application is specified for the HTTP content type
  • Checked for an incorrect preference (no network.protocol-handler preferences found)
  • Started Thunderbird in Safe Mode

None of these resolved the problem. I am running Windows 10 Home on a Dell Inspiron.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, G.C.

I tried downloading a new Thunderbird, still get the same error message. Don't have a clue as to where to go or what to do.

This morning my new Thunderbird emails are not downloading. All was fine last night. I can send email.

I reinstalled Thunderbird but no change. I read advise from 2 months ago to clear my error bin. Did so. Didn't help. I have gmail addresses I am a home user, not expert, no tech support on my end and did not understand all the advise I read. IOW I need simple help. Next step on my own will be try another platform alltogether Was there an update overnight that did this to my computer? Thanks for any help you can provide, especially if I can understand it. :)

In the past few days, I've found that Thunderbird (config details below) has been unable to login to my Gmail accounts (3). Passwords have not changed and I can access them via Gmail/browser (Firefox). I see a status message saying "brittont0@gmail.com connected to imap.gmail.com ..." (and similar for the other accounts) but nothing downloads. I have a notebook with TBird and it has no problems, nor does my wife's. I've tried deleting the brittont0 account and re-installing it, but for that I get a message saying it cannot connect even though all the connection details look correct - Gmail settings as determined by Thunderbird and my name, email and password are all correct (ie same as used elsewhere). Any thoughts? I'd try down-versioning, but only have TB 68.6.0 installer and says my profile has been upgraded and I need to start again (I'd prefer not to). Is there a TB 78.4 or earlier installer available anywhere to try? Config details: TBird 78.5.0 32-bit OS: Win 10 home (desktop) Wired network connection (broadband) Eset 14.0.22.0 anti-virus My Gmail account says there are 1258 messages in the Inbox My notebook runs TB 78.4.0 on Win 10 home My wife's desktop runs TB 78.5.0 32-bit on Win 10 home

Recently i got a problem related to push notifications on Firefox, I've already subscribed (or allowed) to notification permission on some websites like Twitter, Gmail but I don't receive any notification when I closed their tabs . It's working fine if the tab of particular website is loaded on Firefox but once I closed it I don't get any notification especially from those websites on which I allowed the notification permission.

Some people suggested me to use chromium or other browsers to get this behavior but I don't want to replace Firefox with any other browser because their dev tools are better than what others are suggesting to me.

Firefox version: 76.0.1 OS: Manjaro with I3gaps window manager Script (or app) for display the notification : Dunst

I tried version 78. I have four suggestions:

1) Return to the version 68 or earlier icons. The new ones look unnaturally bold and cartoonish when close to bits of text, like labels.

2) Restore the ability to use an add-on implementing a "Get All Message" button, or make it a standard feature.

3) Restore the 68-style entry for cc: and bcc: and the ability to enter more than one of each.

4) In the message view, put "Delete" back on the right.

Why mess with a good thing? Change for the sake of change is rarely productive.

Thank you!

Hi,

I have several issues with my FF that it's unusable for development. I'm giving it a third chance as I really want to keep it.

- CSS is not listed in the network tab - JS cannot be opened in debugger - Source maps partially or fully stop working (e.g. in CSS for some elements it shows the source, for some don't) - Disable cache in network checked still loads assets from cache

Not all issues from above happen at the same time. Restarting the app, refreshing the profile or opening in the private window shuffle the issues.

What I tried so far: - Refreshed Firefox (from the troubleshooting information) - Restarted normally (from about:profiles) - Reset my profiles - Tried without singing in to FF account - Deleted the app and reinstalled it

It is a local project running in Docker, but the same project works in Chrome. No changes have been made on my side. I'm a Chrome user and would really like to switch to Firefox.
