Function of backspace key: As me many people prefere to use the backspace key to move one page back when browsing a website (navigating with the keyboard is more healthy than using the mouse all the time). After updating to version 87.0 this does not work any longer. Is there any way to get this functionality back?

Have a new computer and set up Thunderbird 78 on it. Old computer had v78 and at top of folder pane had a row with "Name", "Unread", "Totals" displayed (option to show "Size" turned off). This allowed number of messages in each folder to be shown against the folder name. On new computer have enabled the Folder Pane but cannot get the row that allows display of (folder) name, unread, totals and size. Tried searching through options and also seeing what left clicks or right clicks might offer but no luck. (Note have another computer running v78 which has folder pane top row working; perhaps upgrading from earlier versions preserved this feature.) I have not yet looked in the prefs.js file but hope someone can give me a helpful answer before I do that.

I recently had to restore my computer to factory setting and Firefox was one of the first things I reinstalled when I was done. Everything seems to be working except that when I put my cursor over a tab or an extension button instead of a tool tip it just shows and empty box. It's always showed a tool tip so I don't know why it started doing this now.

I'd like to search a folder for a named attachment, but I can't work out how to do it. When I select "Attachment" in the first column of the "Search Messages" window, no matter what I put in the second column (e.g., "is", "begins with") and no matter what I put in the third column (including the name of, or first letter of, an attachment known to be in the folder being searched), I always get the same result: "No matches found". A solution would be greatly appreciated as it is not an uncommon for me to need this kind of search. Thanks, Ian.

I'm running Thunderbird 78.9.1 (64-bit) on Mac Osx.

I have these add ons:

  • Provider for CalDAV & CardDAV
  • Send Later
  • Send Later Button
  • TbSync

The problem I'm experiencing is autocomplete doesn't work when composing an email.

I've checked the address book and it is empty - so records presumably are not being populated.

I manually added a record to the address book and auto complete for that record still doesn't work.

In Preferences - Addressing, Local Address Books is ticked. Also ticked is 'automatically add outgoing.... to Collected addresses'

I've checked my profile folder, I tried deleting all files starting with abook.. hasn't helped

Lastly I don't have a file called "abook.mab" instead it is "abook.mab.bak"

Any help and pointers would be really appreciated.

I am an experienced email user but this is the first time I have used Thunderbird. When I compose an email I can open the address book by using Ctrl-Shift-B and then drag the address I want into the To: field or I can start typing the name into the field. Is this the only way to use the address book? Other clients I have used you can click on the To: and then click on a name to populate the field. This seems a quicker way to do it. Am I missing something?

cześć, Posiadam OS Big Sur Mac Mini i mam pytanie, dlaczego na tym komputerze nie działa zapamiętywanie otwartych kart (przywracanie sesji)? Zaznaczyłam w opcjach: przywracanie poprzednich sesji, ale to nie działa. Nie rozumiem tego. Jak miałam Windowsa, to nigdy nie było z tym problemu. A pracuje przy kilkudziesięciu otwartych kartach i nie wyobrażam sobie, żebym miała je za każdym razem otwierać pojedynczo... Z jednej grupy wsparcia Apple dostałam informacje, że Mac ma swoją przeglądarkę: Safarii i żebym jej zaczęłam używać. Ale ja nie chcę innej przeglądarki. Mam za dużo zapamiętanych kart, żeby je przenosić i nie chcę uczyć się kolejnej aplikacji. Dodatkowo powiedziano mi, że Mac nie lubi innych oprogramowań niż swoje. Idąc tym torem, nie można by używać Photoshopa, Adobe PDF, i wiele wiele innych aplikacji, bo Mac ich nie wyprodukował... To jakiś absurd! Proszę o pomoc, jak otwierać przeglądarkę z kartami z poprzedniej sesji?

Na mijn overstap van windows live-mail naar thunderbird dat grotendeels prima is verlopen, blijft één probleem over, namelijk dat één van de 4 accounts die ik heb, krijg ik niet volledig aan de praat. Het gaat om een oud ziggo account aangemaakt in de begintijd van Ziggo. Dat werkte altijd prima in Windows Live Mail (WLM)in de IMAP configuratie. Nu lukt dat niet meer met thunderbird. Ik kan het gebruiken om mail te krijgen en verzenden, maar ik kan de imap-mappen niet meer zien. Ik heb de zelfde settings als in WLM ingevoerd, maar dat werkt dus niet. Heeft iemand dat wel werkend gekregen, het lukt mij niet?.

HELLO ALL,

MY PROBLEM - A FEW DAYS AGO, ON FRIDAY, 12TH MARCH 2021, ABOUT 4.30PM, ISH.... - THUNDERBIRD, VISUALLY LOST, E - MAILS, IT DID NOT DISPLAY, WHAT WAS PREVIOUSLY THERE, AS I HAD BEEN USING THE THUNDERBIRD PROGRAMME, ALL DAY, I AM CERTAIN OF THIS FACT. - INITIALLY, I THOUGHT, THIS FAULT, WAS ONLY IN THE, INBOX FOLDER = BECAUSE THAT WAS THE FOLDER, THAT WAS OPEN, AND THAT I WAS USING, AT THE TIME. - THE FOLLOWING DAY, I FOUND OUT, THAT MOST OF THE SUB FOLDERS, HAD LOST, SOME, OR ALL, OF THEIR CONTENTS. - AS TIME, DAYS, WENT ON, THUNDERBIRD, SAID THAT IT HAD RECEIVED, SOME E - MAILS = SOME WERE SHOWN, WHILST OTHERS, WERE NOT SHOWN, BUT THERE WAS A "COUNT", OF THE UNOPENED E - MAILS..... - ON THE MAIN, OUTLOOK.COM, WEBSITE ACCOUNT, ALL THE E - MAILS, WERE VISIBLE.

WHAT I HAVE DONE - I LOOKED ON THE WEB, TO TRY AND FIND ANSWERS AND HELP, WITH LIMITED SUCCESS. - I CREATED AN ACCOUNT, ON "THIS" SYSTEM. - I SENT A PRIVATE MESSAGE, TO A CONTRIBUTOR, ASKING FOR HELP AND ADVICE, AS TO HOW TO PROCEED = NO REPLY YET. - I FOUND AN ARTICLE, ABOUT A SIMILAR SITUATION, = https://www.convertmbox2pst.com/blog/fix-thunderbird-issues-windows-10/ = Fix 5 – Repair Thunderbird files and folders

Some of the most critical problems with Thunderbird that is unable to recover Thunderbird Email which is permanently deleted(or accidental deletion of files). Many users use some System Cleaning utility that speeds up the functionality of your system by cleaning the unwanted files. Keep in mind, these tool at times can delete necessary files from your computer.

To repair a Mozilla Thunderbird folder — when emails have disappeared, or to restore deleted Thunderbird messages perform following steps

Note: Turn off automatic mail checking to avoids a potential cause for conflicts.

  • Select the folder you want to repair in Mozilla Thunderbird.
  • Select Properties…from the menu that appears.
  • Go to the General Information
  • Click Repair Folder.
  • Now click OK.

- SO I DID THIS, WITH SOME SUCCESS..... - SUCCESS, IN THAT, BY GOING THROUGH, PROPERTIES / REPAIR FOLDER / CLICK OK, "THEN", THE CONTENTS, WOULD "REAPPEAR" = GREAT, SUCCESS I THOUGHT............ - HOWEVER.......... I COULD NOT FIND, I COULD NOT DO, THE FIRST STEP OF, "* Note: Turn off automatic mail checking to avoids a potential cause for conflicts." - THUS, WHEN I CLICKED OFF THE SUB OR MAIN FOLDER, AND WENT TO ANOTHER FOLDER, THAT WAS, THEN EMPTY, OR PART EMPTY, AND, IN GOING BACK, TO THE FOLDER, WHICH I HAD JUST, "REPAIR FOLDER", THAT WAS ALSO, "NOW" PART EMPTY OR EMPTY.........

THE GOOD NEWS IS, THAT I CAN AT LEAST, "SEE", THAT THE E - MAILS, ARE NOT TOTALLY LOST, WHICH WOULD BE A DISASTER, FOR ME. AND I HAVE ALSO, BEEN ABLE TO FILE, TO MOVE AROUND E - MAILS, ONCE I HAVE, "REPAIR FOLDER". BUT IT IS NOT WORKING PROPERLY, AND IT ONLY WORKS, WITH EXTRA UNNECESSARY ACTIONS.

FURTHER, I ALSO FOUND, THE FOLLOWING, ON THIS WEBSITE -

=Toad-Hall Toad-Hall Top 10 Contributor 2/19/21, 10:24 AM Emails are stored in mbox text files eg: Inbox Thunderbird uses another file called 'Inbox.msf' as an indexing file, so this is used to display the list of emails, then when you select and email, it knows where to look in the Inbox mbox for the actual email which is then displayed. If the Inbox.msf file has become out of synch showing issues like you mention, often a 'Repair Folder' will force the Inbox.msf file to be removed and new one created where it reads the mbox file and is updated. It does not delete emails and it does not effect the actual mbox file storing the emails. If the Inbox mbox file that hold emails is empty then the newly created Inbox.msf file cannot show what is not there. So, why is the Inbox mbox file empty ? If the mbox file became corrupted and was then compacted to remove all hidden marked as deleted emails, (which occur when you either move or delete emails) then it may not be able to read which emails were marked as deleted and so ends up empty. Corruption can occur if compacting has not been done on a regular basis or not been performed at all. Perhaps the most common cause of Corruption occurs if an Anti-Virus product has scanned the file and tried to fix it or quarantined the file. Anti-Virus products cannot work out that the mbox file contains many emails, it just sees it as a single file - which it is and nobbles the entire file in one go. Anti-Virus products usually have no effect on the Inbox.msf file as it does not contain emails, so it is left alone, hence why you appear to have a list of emails. The result being the index (msf) file is trying to find something that has already gone, so weirdness abounds. After a fix of index file, it shows what is really in mbox file. My advice: Compact the Inbox on a regular basis. I would also compact the Drafts and Junk as well as they will get a load of deletions. Do not allow Anti-virus products to scan any Thunderbird profile folders, so make them exempt from scanning. If you do want to scan them, I suggest you alter settings so the Anti-Virus asks what to do, then you can stop any 'fix' by the AV. Under no circumstances do you want any AV or other product that cleans up files anywhere near your Thunderbird profile folders.

Helpful? - SO YES, ON THE 8TH MARCH 2021, I DID UPDATE MY ANTI VIRUS = PANDA DOME, AND ITS LICENSES, WHICH WAS BEFORE THE DUE DATE, AS A CHEAPER £££, OPTION, TO DO EARLY. - ON UPDATING, MY ANTI VIRUS, I DID RUN, COMPLETE FULL SCANS, BUT THIS WAS ON THE 8TH AND 9TH AND 11TH MARCH = BEFORE THE FRIDAY 12TH MARCH 2021.

LASTLY, "NOW", I AM TRYING TO POSE, TO ASK, A QUESTION, OF THE COMMUNITY.

THANKS IN ANTICIPATION OF YOUR HELP. I HAVE STATED, ALL I THINK RELEVANT, AND I HOPE, THAT IT IS NOT, TOO MUCH ?

THANKS FOR YOUR TIME, IN READING THE ABOVE.

Since the latest Thunderbird update I have been unable to send/receive E-mail from accounts I have set up using cPanel. Password is correct and the SSL/TLS is version 1.2. I've tried configuring manually and tried unsecure password settings. I deleted one of the accounts and created it again and same problem. I get connection to server timed out. I went into the editor and increased the mailnews.tcptimeout to 2000. I tried using a hotspot and was getting a failed to connect error wanting me to enter new password. I double checked and password is correct. I restarted my router and now sometimes get failed to connect wanting new password and other times get connection timed out. My G-mail account is working. Other programs are letting me download my E-mail with same settings I have in Thunderbird. I'm kind of out of ideas about what to try next. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
