I use TB 68.8.1 with 4 AOL accounts, 3 of them are POP and 1 IMAP on a Windows 7 PC. AOL just sent a notice saying that by October 20th, I need to 1. download their apps to my devices, not going to happen, 2. continue using a 3rd party client but remove and add back the accounts to reconfigure for their new security or 3. use a 1 time app password that must be redone every time you sign out. This option seems cumbersome since my computer is not on all the time. Do I really need to remove the accounts and re add or is it just some settings to change? If I have to remove the accounts what about my messages that are not saved in specific local folders? I had the Import/Export Tools but it had been disabled many version ago as legacy. Can this be done by creating a new profile before and moving messages after adding the accounts again? I do have EMailchemy which can save the messages but not sure about getting back into TB. Thanks

This occured after a Windows update. Previously I was running TB 68.x.x and upgraded to 78.3.3 to see if that would fix it.

1. Open TB 2. Watch it delete everything 3. Receive the error: [clientbug] select command is not valid in this state 4. Open Setting > Server Settings 5. Make a change to User Name; save. Change it back; save. 6. Click Get Messages 7. Everything downloads

it is repeatable. So long as we don't close TB, everything is fine. Close then re-open goes through this process.

Internet provider: Verizon / AOL. Password has been changed and is current.

Hi,

We have Thunderbird configured to local save our e-mail in a specific folder from our server. Ex: \\192.168.etc\thunderbirdmail\"user's folder"

Now I'll have to change the address and would be nice if I could just replace it from a file in Profile's config file. This way I could just change one file and just replace all others, otherwise I'll have to change all endpoints, one by one...

Is it possible? Where can I find the file to change and which file is that?

Thanks.

Hello I have been very stupid. I have a lot of useful Firefox logins, passwords and bookmarks, stored on a computer which now won't boot. The data were not synced to any other device. I can read the C drive using a system rescue disk, and have been able to copy emails and other data to a working computer. Is there any way to copy the Firefox data from the non-working computer and import to Firefox on my working machine? Basically I need to know, in terms of directory and file names, where Firefox stores these data, and any problems in reading these files. The dead computer used Windows 10, version 2004. Firefox used automatic update, so would be the latest version as of last Wednesday. Many thanks for any help. Peter Kenny

Hi Matt, Thank you for your quick reply.

When sending an e-mail, i hold the control down and hit my list individually, as to who I want to send to.

Also when holding the control down, i hit the 'bcc' initially, and as i am starting with each highlighted name, after a few names it pops in to the 'to' column.

It all goes to the 'to' person, not to the 'bcc' before i am finished highlighting the names. Also i use 2 columns in my address book, my major column ( being personal address book) has names from the secondary column, (collected addresses,) pop into the major column automatically, weird.

I then delete the unwanted name and next time i email it pops back into the unwanted column. Is this clear for you to understand my delemma?

Thanks Wayne

The latest Thunderbird update seems to have negated the ability to use alternate email addresses in outgoing messages. I am able to specify an alternate email address to use as the "email" & "reply to" addresses in my identity, yet the outgoing message now always uses my base address which is the one I wish to disguise. When recipients reply, it is now always received on my base address, not the alternate address I have specified in the identity. It worked previously, so I assume a recent update ruined it.

My email uses a Google IMAP server, which I didn't want yet was forced into by my service provider. I am wondering if I must convert the Google server to POP to regain the email identity functionality.

Hi there,

So I manage 2 x FB accounts, mine & Mum's (only cos she's not too savvy). My FB loads fine, apps work, games, vids etc. Mum's on the other hand only has a blank screen when I log in. Nothing on her news feed. She can access the apps/games via links to her email address, and once you've opened one app via an email link you can pretty much access the other apps/games, but not go to their actual page (for bonus points etc), This was working perfectly until this morning.

Hate to say this, but it works in Chrome

I began receiving the following message about 3 days ago - PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR. As I was browsing the forum I came across a suggestion to disable add-ons and restart Firefox in safe mode. When I did that I could now connect to the website I wanted. I then re-stared Firefox multiple times disabling the Add-ons one at a time.

In my case the culprit is "DuckDuckGo" priviacy and security add-on. When I disabled that and re-started Firefox I was able to connect. WhoYah!!!
