I noticed that websites in my main firefox profile began showing the time in UTC rather than following my timezone.

privacy.resistFingerprinting and privacy.resistFingerprinting.testing.setTZtoUTC are set to false

Other profiles follow my timezone, so I would imagine that this has something to do directly with my current firefox profile.

Thank you

I have used Firefox since it was Netscape, with an ad blocker if one was available. With version 128 I am seeing many, many, many ads where I used to see almost none. I have blocked popups but that's not as much help as you'd hope. I cannot find anythng like AdBlock+ or U Block. Are these no longer available? No longer recommended? I can tell you that they are sure still needed. Thanks.

I got an email from Microsoft saying my Live.com or Outlook.com email accounts won't be supported in Thunderbird UNLESS I change the settings to OAuth2 in incoming and outgoing server settings.

I even REMOVED the email account and re-added it making sure it was OAuth2.

But for my live.com & outlook.com email accounts I continually get prompts for passwords from Thunderbird. Sometimes I can't even click the RED X at the upper right to shut the prompt down. I just happens over and over until I give it what it wants.

I am tempted to shut down all Microsoft email accounts and switch to Gmail.

I have Thunderbird version 115.12.2 (64-bit) I used Windows 11 23H2 build 22631.3810 Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22700.1020.0

Any idea how to stop these prompts?

I like Thunderbird much more than any other email program I have ever used, and would like to keep it

Gitlab adds a "X-GitLab-NotificationReason" field to the email headers, but only sometimes. I want to filter out messages that do not contain this header. How do I do it? The only operators I can see in the GUI are "contains", "doesn't contain", "is", "isn't", "begins with" and "ends with".

They don't take regexes or wildcards, do they? In that case maybe "is *" would work?

Hello.

I use TB on several laptops and desktops. Same (latest) versions.

Is there a possibility to copy the spam filter settings/rules from one pc to an tother pc? If so, what files are the name of the files i have to copy and paste. Or do I have to make rules and spam settings on each seperate installation of TB

On all my installations I have the same emailaccounts.

Thanks in advance and sorry for my (bad?) language (i hope I made myself clear) Henri

Microsoft sent me this: Various non-Microsoft applications will have their own steps for connecting to your Outlook.com email account using modern authentication methods. See our help article - Modern Authentication Methods now needed to continue syncing Outlook Email in non-Microsoft email apps. However, you may need to contact the creators of those applications to provide you with instructions. In many cases, simply removing and re-adding your account with the latest version of that application will configure it to use modern authentication methods.

Will Thunderbird continue to link me to Outlook? If so, how?

Thank you.

When attempting to send emails from any of my email account using 128.0esr - after pushing send, the email to be sent just sits there and never goes anywhere. I know that all the settings are correct for my email client since they worked fine with 115 (wish I could get back to 115.12).

On 64-bit linux (Zorin), can I make profile symlink to profile on 64-bit Win10?

I dual boot Win10 and Zorin Linux 17.1, and run Tbird on both of them, works great!

I copied my profile directory from Win10 to Zorin, and then renamed it to the name of the profile directory that the Tbird installation on Zorin had chosen. So both systems access the same 10 IMAP email accounts. I keep messages locally, so the profile uses a fair bit of disk space on both systems.

In fact, the profile originally came from a different Win10 machine, so I had to copy it to a (large) thumb drive. And that took several hours and encountered numerous problems. The structure and content of the profile directory tree is bewildering. But despite the errors that caused a few thousand items (of the 302,000) not to get copied, it seemed to work just fine(!).

It turns out that Zorin seems able to read and write NTFS filesystems quite well. So now I'm wondering if I can copy the profile directory from Zorin to the Win10 partition on the same machine, and replace it with a symlink to that NTFS directory? Does Tbird do funky low-level things to the profile that might not work as expected with Zorin accessing it on NTFS? There would be no risk of race conditions since only one system can be booted at a time. It's just the problems I had copying to the thumb drive in the first place that make me worry that Tbird does some kind of magic with the profile that might not work with linux accessing NTFS...

I guess I'll go ahead and try it (and report back here), but I'm wondering if I should expect problems.

Thanks!

Under Account Settings, I went to synchronization&storage, clicked Advanced to be sure the files would be available offline. I exited Thunderbird & used File Explorer to go to my root directory to Profiles. There were 2 files, one with the ext of .default-esr which was a large file. The other with ext of .default which was a very small file. I copied both of these to an external drive. Under Account Settings I went to Copies & Folders & under Message Archives, I didn't know what to choose. I need to know how to copy to the Local Folders of the profile for each email account which is 2, Gmail & Hotmail or Outlook. Thanks.

Appears to be phantom ways. There are isn't anything like as described at all. Unable to change my locations. .Your STUIPD weather thing is using my VPN location not my real location and I'm unable to find or make any changes. WHY come up with a big lie saying you can change the location? I'd like to add the screen shot, I guess you also limit what can be uploaded while other places allow WORD with the picture in it OR PDF etc.
