Up until lately Firefox email has worked fine, but recently it started saying the password was wrong for my BT email account. Having on several occasions put in the correct password again and asked for it to be saved. The emails would go and more would come in, although this would take a couple of "retry's". Having done a reset of a password several times I now just hit retry again and again until it eventually does send an email and does receive emails. This sometimes takes a dozen retry's for it to work. As it does eventually send and receive there is no logic to the initial request for the "correct password". I have 3 other email accounts on Firefox, all BT email and they all work fine but my main email address doesn't. It's a pain.

1) Reinstalled Thunderbird doesn't open. (Had a lot of professional help yesterday with settings and other things of which I didn't understood anything.) I'm 75 and do need my e-mail a.s.a.p. 2) Change Firefox language from English to Swedish. I've tried myself in the lower right corner but it always sets back to English.

Hi there and thanks for your time. I really need your help: I can't set up my @me.com mail on Thunderbird. I can do it on Outlook but, with the same configuration, the mail doesn't connect to Thunderbird. I follow the Apple instruction about the server set up, I even try all the other options just to be sure! But still I can't solve this issue: the response is always "Unable to connect to the server".

This is the set up I manually configurate on Thunderbird: inbox server: imap.mail.me.com - ssl port 993 - username: my username - password: since I have the 2factor autentication, I generate a specific app password from my Apple ID. outbox server: smtp.mail.me.com port 587 (I tried SSL, but even TLS and STARTTLS) - username and password: as here above.

As I said, to be sure I'm not wrong with something, I tryed the same configuration on Outlook, and over there I can connect easily. But I want and need to use Thunderbird, not Outlook!!

Can you please help me to sort it out somehow? I even ask help to th Apple Support Center, but obviously they told me to ask you, since for them this is a third party application.

Thank you very much for your help. I will really appreciate it.

...and I don't receive any error messages. I've made sure it wasn't just my selected homepage. I tried other major cites like CNN.com, Amazon.com, etc. I just see a blank tab. However if I use Chromium (I run the latest LTS release of LinuxMint w/ Xfce desktop) websites open just fine.

I was attempting to configure a symbolic link to a security certificate so that I could run Schwab StreetSmart via Citrix Workspace via the directions given here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/59905065/using-schwab-streetsmart-edge-cloud-on-linux-citrix-error

This is the command I ran: sudo ln -s /usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla/DigiCert_Global_Root_G2.crt /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts/DigiCert_Global_Root_G2.pem

I then rebooted as the instructions say and when the system came back up I opened up FireFox and I wasn't able to access any sites. Also when I click on the drop down menu and click on "Preferences" in FireFox nothing happens. No error messages.

I even tried removing and reinstalling FireFox, it didn't help. I'm at a loss.

I click a magnet link and it keeps asking me what to do and I have already told it to do this automatically from now on. It even has the checkbox already ticked as if it is fkn retarded. I have refreshed firefox and nope I have uninstalled firefox and reinstalled it nope. I have checked all the forums about it and even made it so that the system cannot alter the default torrent program. Still, nothing works. I am so angry coz it used to be fine. So sick of updates that "fix" stuff... It would be nice if it just bloody worked.

Hi, lately I have been trying to tackle my secondary HDD being spun up for no reason in the background and one thing that keeps popping up is Firefox.exe accessing a bunch of fonts contained in the Solidworks installation on the HDD (which is a secondary drive, while Firefox is installed on the primary SSD).

I really cannot understand why it happens, since I think nobody is supposed to install Solidworks along with Firefox. Of course I don't want this activity to wake up my drive, but also, is it normal? I have to admit I'm kinda worried.

I'll attach screenshots from Sysinternals Process Monitor

Thanks in advance to anyone that will help :)

I have used Thunderbird for many years, and I especially like the filter function. In the past, I had maybe 50 or 60 entries in one set of filters on my IN box. I now have a new computer, and began setting up filters as in the past, but I cannot have more than 16 entries in the filter. Is this a new feature of Thunderbird? Is there now a limit to the number of entries in a filter?

Ever since the last update (88.0.1), I have been unable to login to my bank, or IRS sites. SOMETIMES, if i clear cookes and cache, i can get into my bank, but then when i logout, i get the access denied message again, and can't log back in. These same sites work with no issue in Chrome.

This is infuriating. Can anything be done to fix this, or am i going to be stuck waiting for the next firefox update?

To work from home, my work Gmail account was added last year. Firefox is my default browser. I open Firefox, select Gmail & my home email account. It opens fine. It is the only tab open in Firefox. When I close the tab, my work account appears. If I open my home & then my work email, they both work. I close each one & after that, the inbox of only the work account appears. The normal operation always required opening my personal email first. Using my work account, required an extra step. If I do not take that step, and only the personal account is visable, when I close the personal account. the work one appears. This does not happen in Edge or Chrome.

Been using T.Bird for years. Until last week, after I had clicked onto the icon to bring T.Bird alive in the morning I had then to sign in with my password & then sign in again when sending my first mail of the day. But since last week the initial sign in has not been required. Has there been a change in latest version 78.10.1?

Hi all,

I have a weird issue with Thunderbird 89.0b4 on MacOS 11.1.

When clicking reply all to an email I received, where I was in cc with another 15 people, the "send" button is ghosted, and I cannot send the email.

The button becomes active again if I remove from the "to" list one or more people until the list gets shorter than 15 people or so. Interestingly, the button stays active if I then add the same addresses back.

This only seems to happen when the people are in the to field. I do not see a similar behavior when they are in the "cc" list.

Is this just a temporary issue due to the beta nature of the version I'm using, or something I'm missing? thanks salvo

I have migrated from windows Live Mail (WLM) to Thunderbird. WLM saved emails as .eml files. I have a routine that parses through emails as they are received and allows my routine to generate a quote.

This is done live, within 30 seconds of receiving the email. This is because WLM stored files as .eml files in the local structure and my routine would scan a particular folder for an incoming email (that matched certain criteria).

Can this be done in Thunderbird without manual intervention?
