I have several email accounts based on projects and areas of interest: Genealogy, etc.

I would like to set up a filter to apply globally to every account. For example, Subject is Civil War, or message contains Civil War.

But, I have some emails in a genealogy account and others in a generic household account that pertain to questions from various authors.

How can I create one filter to encompass all of my accounts?

Thank you,

I use dual-24” monitors with the left display “1” being landscape and the right display “2” being portrait. I run Thunderbird full-screen on display “2” – portrait.

When composing an email the Write window opens over top of the Thunderbird window on display “2” - where it should be.

Once the email is composed and I click on “Send” Thunderbird always brings up the “Check Spelling” window in far upper left corner of the “1” landscape display This is far from the Write message composition window.

I can find no way to tell Thunderbird that I want to permanently reposition the “Check Spelling” window to a better location near or on the “2” portrait display. How can I permanently reposition a “Check Spelling” window? Thanks.

I received an email told me I had to change my account from Pop to IMAP. While attempting to do that, I managed to screw something up. Now, when I open Thunderbird, all of my folders are missing. When I try to get messages, my email provider (Yahoo) times out.The only thing that I can retrieve is my address book. Can someone slowly and carefully explained to me how I can retrieve my account?

I posted this to the Linux Mint forum as I use that distro and they rely on Thunderbird as the email client. corresponding Linux Mint forum article

My workstation is a Thinkpad X220tablet Convertible running Linux Mint 19.3. All Mint distro provided (19 Oct 2020) updates are applied. I have several email accounts at various servers active in my T'bird application. All accounts are accessed with IMAP.

The text from my forum posting follows below.

Thanks in advance, ~~~ 0;-Dan Covington, LA

====================

I'm playing with [u]Google™ email address tricks/u and think that I found a [b]bug/b with Thunderbird™. I cannot discover how to post it to a T'bird or Mozilla® page so I'm posting the details here. see [url="https://smallbusiness.chron.com/gmail-email-address-tricks-41619.html#:~:text=Although%20Gmail%20allows%20users%20to,recognize%20and%20deliver%20your%20email"]Google Tricks/url.

Using T'bird v68.10.0 (64-bit), I select Kirk's account and send a message to Scotty. Both are Gmail addresses. [code]

    FROM:  Kirk <kirk@gmail.com>
    TO:      "scotty+stuff@gmail.com"
    ...
    

/code I used the T'bird GUI but my example reads like a terminal session. I needed to quotation marks in the TO address so that T'bird would ignore the plus sign.

After a brief delay, I'm told that there is a new message for Scotty. I open that message and see: [code]

    FROM:  kirk@gmail.com
    TO:      scotty+stuff@gmail.com
    ...

/code This is exactly what I expected. I also look at Kirk's SentMail folder and see the same FROM and TO information.

On detailed inspection, Scotty's inbox shows the new message as: [code]

    Correspondent:  scotty+stuff@gmail.com

/code Huh? What?

Since Kirk sent the message, shouldn't his email or address book entry show as the Correspondent?

Looking at Kirk's other SentMessage data [list] [*] none are empty(blank) [*] all contain the TO email address or address book Contact Name /list

As a further test, I send a message using not-tricky email addressing: [code]

    FROM:  kirk@gmail.com
    TO:      scotty@gmail.com
    ...
    

/code Kirks SentMail folder shows a blank(empty) Correspondent field. Scotty Inbox also shows a blank(empty) Correspondent field. REPLY etc all direct messages correctly. Huh? What?

[b]DISCUSSION/b [i]What is going on with the Correspondent field contents. Is it something to do with the fact that both Kirk@gmail.com and Scotty@gmail.com are configured as accounts in the same T'bird session? Is something else going on?

Does the email trick "scotty+stuff@gmail.com" cause the message to be stored so that any REPLY comes back to Scotty -- because of the embedded plus-sign?

Clearly, the email trick is causing something to go haywire. Sadly, the what is going on is not clear beyond "it's not working" beyond message delivery.

For the last several months some of my emails have ended up in the "Junk Mail" folder somehow. Previously all my junk mail went to "Junk" and was flagged with yellow flame and shortly deleted. The email now going to "Junk Mail" includes some from relatives and Medicare. Fortunately none is flagged as junk but of course is a pain to move to the inbox manually. Has there been a redesign of Thunderbird somehow causing email to end up in that directory? Is that something that my ISP Charter/Spectrum might be causing? Thanks, besides the constant "Not Responding" messages I get, this is making me wonder if I need to find another email program.

I’ve turned off thumbprints, added the site as a trusted site and pretty much killed all security for this site. How can I let FF see the cpu/ram?

My Mozilla Thunderbird Email will not open and keeps asking for my password then ignoring it. A message then comes up saying, "Server mail.btinternet.com has disconnected. The server may have goner down or there may be a network problem. I saw a mention system had been compromised." There is no point in asking, "Email me when someone answers the thread" because nothing is coming through. Maybe it would come though to Gmail.

Hi, I am not really that happy with the latest version of Firefox android and i have used it for years.

I used to really like that my bookmarks were the first thing that showed when i opened Firefox and i never had the issue i am having now either.

Before this new version i would tap on one of my bookmarks and a new refreshed version of that site would always load, i am finding that to make things a a bit quicker and still have some sort of bookmarks on my home screen i have had to add sites either to collections or to what you now call top sites.

I don't know why i can't just have my bookmarks on the front as they are the sites i always go to and the way you have changed it has just made it hard to do things, i feel like i shouldn't have had to setup collections and top sites just to have the same thing?

The main issue is that when i tap on sites from top sites or collections a copy of the last time i visited that site shows and i have to refresh it every time to get the latest content, this is especially a nuisance for news sites such as bbc etc. this didn't happen prior when i used to just select the site i wanted from my bookmarks?

I know tapping on the top right and going to bookmarks isn't exactly hard, but you have made it all 'feel' harder than it was before, it was easy to open multiple sites from bookmarks before as well and now that feels hard to having to long press and then select all the sites i want to open first.

Is there any way the issue regarding sites not opening with the latest contents be fixed and if this isn't an issue as such as far as you see it, could there be at least an option in settings so that people then have to option to load an old cached copy of sites to make loading faster or to load new contents so that the user has the option?

Regards

I had to restore my hard drive and lost the icon short cut to one of my email accounts. I tried creating a new short cut following Firefox Help; however, the instructions are inaccurate or out of date. There is no "icon on the left of the address bar". Alternatively I discovered that I could drag another part of the email display and create an icon for the email service but it is created as an Edge Chromium (damn Microsoft!) which was just installed via a Microsoft update. From my research I discovered that Microsoft has so embedded Edge Chromium that removing it runs the risk of making the OS unstable. My question: is there a way were I can create an icon for my email service that will launch in Firefox and not Edge Chromium?

Avast (pro) blocks then reports: https://rclick.site/3LtGKV ... reporting it as a phlishing site/bot whatever - FF vs. 81.0.2 (64 bit).

Dear Girls and Guys,

As detailed above, Firefox starts then the first thing seen is a Avast warning screen saying it has "blocked an rclick site due to phlishing risk."
OK - not a drama - find the URL or add-on causing or calling that site, then bin (secure shred) it; followed by reporting it to folks like you, Avast, IObit, etc. {ie. normal practice}.

Issues. 1. I cannot find the site referenced in bookmarks. 1.1. Looked/searched manually running FF; 1.2. Saved all BM's to a HTML file (secured directory); then ran string searches (full and partial). ... Could not find it. 2. Tried to find reference to it at Avast (= failed, response bot is not designed for technical stuff - above finger painting or 'mud-pies' or 'how to change nappy'). 3. I have been working through my Firefox add-on apps - mainly because I think (fits logically) one of those is doing the site call (internal function) to this 'r-click' site ... thus far without luck. 3.1 I'm not young (though dementure might help that) - thus also have Seamonkey and Waterfox, etc., installed to look at/watch (progress, developments, teams talking, etc). As a rule all those have the same groupings of Apps/ext's - because I look at and rate those also. (have done, since the early Mozilla days).

The https:rclick.site/3LtGKV (phlishing) message/reaction does not come-up in Seamonkey, Waterfox or Tor browsers (using many of the same plug-in apps/ext's).

3.2 I was going to enter it in my firewall black list (added preventative), but would prefer to enter the actual calling application or URL; then report the same elsewhere.

Concluding and question.

In theory - I think it is an extention or application 'calling home' - possibly innocently - in which case I would like to remove it, then report it (as either problematic or malicious - in the extentions & apps reporting system).
Thing is I cannot find it/what is causing it.
It cannot damage me/my systems; however it can - if malicious - damage innocent/unsuspecting others.
Thank you and much sincere grovelling ... for clever tips and thoughts you may wish to bestow,
Be safe, keep well and keep smiling,
Rick.
