1st, what exactly, by default, is put into the Trash folder? 2nd, What do I do to get the Trashcan (with settings and Icon) back, if it is removed somehow? 3rd, can I direct my Spam, Junk and Deleted to the Trash Can, without using message filters?

I lost my Trash Icon, under one of my Email Accounts, and I created a Trash Folder but it is not what useful. Can someone explain where and/or how to restore the original Trash Can under any account? Thank you... Robert

I have firefox 78.0.1 64b on windows 10 installed I have teams of MS installed if you go the website of teams called by meeting invite - there is a possibility to start the teams standalone application. when requesting this in FF, it does not start teams - on the page is also indicated that FF is not supported for teams. if I do this in edge (I never use edge - just for test) this opens the appl is there a setting that would prevent this ? can we configure this to allow starting an appl ? thanks for all update/help best regards, Guy

Almost every time I try to send an email Thunderbird asks for my password. I type it in and check the "box" to save password. Password is saved in the security password file but next time I try to send email I get the same error. But like said before, sometimes it goes through without asking for password. Very frustrating.

I moved from chrome to firefox. The zoom meeting does not work. I tried first through the web site (https://zoom.us/) to connect to a meeting. It will never pop up the dialog to ask me and open up zoom.

I downloaded also the zoom app. I start the app and first I tried to lsign in. I click on sign using facebook, then a new window of firefox opens up. The site that tries to connect is (zoommtg://zoom.us/facebook?token=muM7ER9yHmD6ueNhhdFjQKv7lz5L7%2FZ9C2nWw%2FeSevroeFDWx5j6JG5wwmu%2FhEld0RXgcqknbhNqq%2B9PEG4na3Mc3C9VCbute08OO14STh8JLPiAHDLhmog6vZ4uFKru%2FjZ2DjoBdMXbA0rDHV3WhuiPJ0jLJNp517Ate38WD5vuGnoaOayscn3agXceYmNwcAZ6ZBnIIv67k4Ou%2Fy5nkxuyhvJNpDnMZwojeV4T8DNKv%2B8QQUGYB%2Fl2J5ILM825&errorno=0&errormsg=&expire=5130456).

Then it fails, it reports a error: The address wasn’t understood Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (zoommtg) isn’t associated with any program or is not allowed in this context. You might need to install other software to open this address.

I lookeup on the internet about possible solution. But non has worked. Mainly people implied that firefox does not has a protocol for the zoom tag. (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1280803) Indeed also in my case it does not. But like also the the last person noted in the the previous case, also in my case that did not help.

I have Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS, Firefox 74.0 (64bit).

Any idea?

"question: says it all. I have gone to "Options' and checked all the boxes and still I get only an abbreviated list of sites that I visit or have visited and this does not change with time. I have been using Firefox for years and this has never happened after an upgrade. For instance every time i want to go to my Hotmail account, I have to type in the URL in the address bar where as I used to be able to hit the drop down arrow in the address bar, a menu would drop down and i could click on Hotmail or Bank of America, etc and be taken to the site.

Good day all.

Currently using 68.10.0 (64-bit) and am trying to send an e-mail from one of my accounts...let's say "Account A."

Account A uses XYZ e-mail provider, and is having no issues with receiving e-mail. However, in trying to send e-mail, Account A uses the SMTP settings for Account B. This does not work because Account B uses the LMNOPQ e-mail provider.

Now, I have multiple e-mail accounts spread across multiple e-mail providers. So when I look at the "Outgoing Server (SMTP) Settings" window, I see many entries. Admittedly, I am confused as to why there is this separate window for SMTP settings when it seems to me that each e-mail account could (should?) have its own window, such as is the case with the IMAP/POP settings (say, in the "Server Settings" area). Doing so would, I think, allow for a user to easily associate each e-mail account to specific IMAP/POP settings. As it is, I can see no way to do this with the current layout.

But, I digress.

In any event, my first question is: 1) How does one associate a single a (Account A, Account B, Account C...whatever) to specific SMTP settings as is done with IMAP/POP settings?; 2) Is there a way to NOT have a "Default" SMTP server? Personally I see no need for it. What would be preferred is, as stated previously, to simply have a window within each e-mail account wherein one lists the SPECIFIC SMTP settings for that account, as is the case with the IMAP/POP settings; 3) I've done an "Add" of a group of SMTP settings that would work for this Account A, but I do not see any way to associate/link those settings to that specific account. In fact, after I did this "Add," I closed Thunderbird, reopened it and tried once again to send this same e-mail from Account A. And once again Account A tried to use the SMTP settings for the LMNOPQ e-mail provider and NOT the ones for the XYZ e-mail provider. So how does one associate/link a listed entry in the "Outgoing Server (SMTP) Settings" window to a given e-mail account?

Finally, perhaps it's the case that I've missed one or more things. I thought I had this figured out as I have a number of other e-mail accounts with different e-mail providers, all of which appear to be working properly, but now I'm at a loss to understand what's going on here.

Thank you!

cannot log in to my Bank of Montreal online banking!!!

I've used Firefox for years, and for years I daily do my online banking.

Now all of a sudden, without any warning I cannot log into my bank account. I've tried clearing history, etc. I've tried the about:config change...

I can log in fine with Microsoft Edge.

My wife uses Firefox and she can log into the bank. I suspect that is because Firefox has not updated on her computer.

This is maddening, to put it mildly.

I had to change my Google password and that meant I had to use the new password to open G-mail in Thunderbird. With your help I was able to change the password in Thunderbird and I am able to download e-mail to my inbox. But when I try to send an e-mail I get the following error message: Login to server smtp.gmail.com with (my username).gmail.com failed. I had changed the password for the only gmail account in password manager smtp://smtp.gmail.com. oauth://accounts.google.com that has my email address as the username changes the password every time the program is opened. Where do I enter a password specifically for smtp outgoing mail?

I recently changed all my pop to imap.. It's been a disaster...I was not able to send or receive from any of my 3 computers after the change. It took me days of all my possible help "passing the buck" "not our end": a)my spam protection people, b)internet provider c)email domain hosts (2 of them- just for fun)

And, of course, the no tech support Thunderbird (fun part of the equation).... there is also a password problem somehow which I bypassed smtp finally using port 25 and 2525 unsecured...

and I now can send and receive...WOW.

I'm pretty much an expert after a full week of 8-12 hour days... This all happened because I was getting occasional failure to send bounce backs...thought I'd fix it...

Anyway current problems are: 1) working with our spam protector tech transitioning from my very happy pop life to imap: ALL my message folders (15 years worth of business email) in one box were deleted..

2)In my other domain all my message they seem to be there but are greyed out, labeled "IN BOX bla bla..."

Is it possible to recover these and how? I've looked in "Profile Folder" "Show in Finder" and some seem to be there... how can I pull out these folders and sub folders that I depend on for my work?

Is there anyone to help me??? Thank you.
