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

Hello,

It's been a while since the release date of chromecast on browsers.. Today, year 2020, all the chromium based browsers add chromecast (Edge, brave, chrome, etc..). My favorite browser is firefox, and i am forced to use a chromium based browser to cast to my androidTV's. Sometimes i think to leave this browser and use a chromium based all the time.

I searched and installed chromecast extension to firefox and nothing works to me, and they are not user frindly as chromecast extension on chrome.

Can you tell me if you even think in add a chromecast extension in firefox by default?

Thanks,

Version 76 has serious problems in Mac Mojave and Catalina. I'm thinking of moving to another browser if the problems aren't fixed in a few weeks. In Mac Mojave, the UI sometimes blinks and sometimes becomes black. I had to restart the app but it happened quite frequently. After updating to Catalina, all shortcuts are unusable, most right click menus are blank and even the menu bar is blank. When hovering the mouse over the menu bar, nothing displays, just blank menus. Sometimes, the app starts up with default UI although I customised it a bit. In those cases, I had to close the tab or even restart the app.

I'm getting disappointed and perhaps I'll move to another browser soon.

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.

HI, My Thunderbird has recently auto-updated to V78.2.1 & there appear to be some major issue with it as follows:

Previously when clicking the mouse on a any line in any pane, that line would be highlighted so you would know what you are looking at when the mouse is moved. This no longer happens!

When new emails arrive into the email list pane the details are all invisible bar a small yellow star to the left until clicked on which then makes the text appear!

Backgrounds when replying to, forwarding or writing new mails are black!! Why on earth is this happening??

All of these issues are highly annoying & definitely NOT an improvement!

Is there any way of solving these & if not can I revert back to a previous version?

Thanks in advance for any advice. Regards

I am not sure whether this was caused by an auto Windows or Thunderbird update, but I haven't changed any recent settings that should cause this to happen.

All email subjects, date, sender, etc. now display on white text and white background. Things like Stars and attachment icons display normally. If I click where the email "is", the email shows up properly. Having my mouse over to highlight the email shows that it is indeed white text on white background (as opposed to no text at all).

Things I have tried:

  • Changing Options > Colors (neither changing text nor background color appear to do anything)
  • Disabling/re-enabling my add-ons to change email color per account
  • Changing my theme
  • Changing Windows 10 default app theme (Light or Dark)

All of these with Thunderbird restarts each time. I have also, in general, restarted the PC.

Ideas?

I do maintain several sites. Yesterday I noticed an unknown icon on my site www.magoster.nl www.magoster.nl . It was an icon showing a "wheelchair". It can only been seen a) on my desktop and b) with Firefox. Chrome and Edge do not show it. On my laptop Firefox does not show it. All Apple devices do not show it. So, it is only to be seen on my desktop + Firefox. I scanned site and desktop several times on virusses (McAfee): nothing found.

This wheelchair-icon opens a window whch gives possibilities to alter accessibility of the site. It claims to do that for disabled people. There is a link to a site: https://accessibe.com.

My site www.magoster.nl is a Wordpress-site. All plugins are up to date. All systemsoftware on the desktop too. FF latest version. But I can hardly believe that it is something on the site.

Is anyone familiar with this icon and https://accessibe.com? How did I get this icon and - more important - how do I get rid of it. Thanks for any glues!

I use Thunderbird to keep a copy of my Gmail emails on my local hard drive. My scenario is. I have an email in my gmail inbox which is duplicated in Thunderbird. If I move the copy in Thunderbird to a local Thunderbird folder the copy in my gmail account remains in my Gmail inbox. All fine so far. That's what I want it to do. Now my problem. I set up a filter in Thunderbird with parameters that will automatically move the email to the local folder but this time the filter also archives the copy of the email that was in my gmail inbox. I want to filter / move emails in Thunderbird without causing the copy of it that is in my actual Gmail inbox folder to be archived. I can't understand why; if I move it manually it does not archive but if I filter it it does. Any suggestions on what setting I should change?

I am still using FF 58 because it allows me to delete recent history and cookies. For some reason, often when I reboot the computer. FF switches me to V72. and I have to go thru hell to get 58 back up and running. I love to keep my history for sites I have visited, and v58 allows me to delete everything for the day, 4 hours, 2 hours or one hour.

72 does not appear to give me that option. How can I delete only recent history and cookies, and keep the rest?

The other two addresses have been checked and the breaches for them have been resolved. For some reason, I can't get the gmail address verified to see if it has been breached.

I am running with ubuntu 20.04 This was an upgrade and I lost all my thunderbird settings.

Thunderbird tells me that I am currently running with 68.10.0 (64-bit). I also see there is a much newer version being offered. I don't want to update my Thunderbird until I can get what I have back into order.

I have how found my old profile (last updated 10/9/2020) and I want to install it into thunderbird. I read about profile management and started following directions. I had to login to firefox stuff to get there and then I had to run firefox -P. That was a really bad idea. It destroyed by existing firefox! I finally got most of it back my syncing it (not easy to do as the firefox had turned into one with absolutely no settings). Anyway, my basic problem remains. I have moved my old profile into the same folders as the new profiles that were created when Thunderbird came up after my disaster (one in /.thunderbird and the other in /.cache/thunderbird)

There are two different profiles that Thunderbird created after my disaster. I have now added another although I think I could also add the other one I found in my backup as well. All I want to do is to make my old profile the current profile. Can anybody tell me how to do that?

thank you..............

What is the limit on number of messages in one mailbox in Thunderbird?

My question is about Thunderbird 45.5.1. I know the program is quite old, however.

The mailboxes are stored locally (so POP, not IMAP). All messages are stored in one file (and yes, I know that newer versions allow to store each message as individual file).

And yes, I know that size limit of a mailbox in this version is 4 GB.
