After an update yesterday, thunderbird v104.2 opens up as a blank window. The menus show up and it seems to download messages, but I'm unable to see any folders or messages. I've tried deleting the "global..." file, I've uninstalled and reinstalled an older version, and nothing is working for me. I've read other threads about this issue and tried the solutions, but have not found one that works for me. I'd appreciate any new ideas. I'm running on Windows10 thanks

I have been using Thunderbird for several years. It has been stable, it remembered my passwords, and the calendar synchronized with my Google calendar without issue.

I recently installed a Windows update, to Windows 10 Home, version 21H1, build 19043.1889. Since the update Thunderbird frequently crashes, typically after around 10 to 30 minutes after starting.

In the hope it might resolve the crashing, I installed Thunderbird 102.2.0. Since then Thunderbird continues to crash frequently, plus I now have had the following issues:

1) Every time I start Thunderbird, Provider for Google Calendar requires me to enter my Google password and authenticate on my phone. Previously Provider just needed the password and authentication at the time of initial set up only.

2) When I click 'Get Messages', Thunderbird asks for the password to my e-mail account. If I check the box for 'Use password manager to remember this password' then 'Get Messages' always fails. If I do not check then 'Get Messages' is successful, but I have to enter the password every time.

3) Similarly, when I send an e-mail Thunderbird asks for the password to my e-mail account. If I check the box for 'Use password manager to remember this password' then sending the message always fails. If I do not check then sending the message is successful, but I have to enter the password every time.

I have 3042 *.msf files going back to 03/22/2010. I hope I never have to go back to 2013 to check on what I did or did not do in those files. Using Thunderbird 102.2.2, Windows 10 with mail server on Ionos.com using an 8800L Verizon jetpack I get pop ups when I want to quit TB saying TB not responding. Could it be *.msf files are taking up space? Also I think there should be a warning, unless I missed it, when deleting Thunderbird 102.2.2 other day thinking it might help doing a reload so Thunderbird will respond I see where I lost all my junk mails to block. All gone. Looks like I am going to have to start over blocking them. If there is something that will cause something else to occur with deleting *msf files please let me know. Thanks

Mac OS 13.0 Thunderbird 102.4.1

Hello, Thunderbird now crashes every time it connects to check for new email. The program locks up, I get the spinning beach ball, and I have to force quit to close it. Letting it sit for an extended time has no impact.

If I start Thunderbird without an internet connection it behaves normally. Once it reconnects to the internet and attempts to download email, it locks up.

If I start in Troubleshoot Mode with add-ons and extensions disabled, it works normally. No problems at all. I don't appear to have any add-ons or extensions running, so I don't understand why this is fixing things.

I had read a previous post about disabling access to Contacts in System Preferences, I tried that, no luck.

TB 102.5.0 (64-bit) on Win10 I'm getting repeated notices that my e-mail accounts with Network Solutions don't have a proper "certificate" when I try to send an email. I get a popup window stating so, and asking me to "permanently" choose the exception. It doesn't matter how many times I tell the fool thing to accept the exception "permanently". I still keep getting the notice every few times. Since the glitch is not consistent, I don't have an image of one to put here. Not only that, I have to send the email twice after doing so. TB refuses to send the email the first time after choosing the exception, but allows it the second. I don't know anything about "certificates" and am sick of getting popup notices about them. I doubt that the problem is with Network Solutions email accounts. This reminds me of years ago, when I tried to upgrade to WinXP. It kept interrupting my work to give me popup security notices that I didn't understand and couldn't do anything about. If I remember correctly, I took it back to Sam's Club and replaced it with Win2000. Problem solved. Never mind that XP was supposed to be better. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

In the recent versions of Thunderbird (102.2.x, 102,3,3, 106.0b5, and possibly earlier) searching messages no longer works on my home system.

On the main message screen, the Quick Search field used to let me quickly filter out messages with a subject or sender matching whatever I put in that field. It would in fact start filtering matches as I'm typing. This no longer happens, with multiple email addresses (such as GMail, or my ISP).

If I bring up the full search dialogue while on a folder from one of my email accounts (so that it should be able to guess which account I'm searching in) the "Search for messages in" field is greyed out. with the text "No available folders".

The thing is, my work computer with Thunderbird 102.2.0 still has functional search (both Ouick Find and the full search dialogue).

So I have to uncheck the other language from the menu very often.

Hi,

instead of upgrading Debian 10 to 11 I made a new installation on a new hard disk and imported an rsync backup of my complete home directory. The problem: All except one network calendars I had under Debian 10/TB 91.6.2 are missing.

The calendar which is still in the list under Debian 11 (TB 91.13.0) has no entries and can not be unsubscribed ("Unsubscribe Calendar..." is grayed out). If I try to add one of the missing calendars with "New calendar..." nothing appears after finishing the import wizard.

I still have the Debian 10 hard disk so I can boot into the setup with the working TB calendars.

Any ideas how I can fix the calendars? Maybe some configuration data is missing for some reason?

When creating an event from an email using the "Convert To" > "Event..." feature, it generates a calendar event with an immutable "Related Link" field that points to the original email from which the event was generated. This "Related Link" field is not compatible with several of the CalDAV calendar syncs I use, and results in the newly created events never syncing to the server and ultimately being deleted.

Is there a way to remove this field during or after creating the events?

Using Windows 10 and TBird 102.5.1 and POP3, HostGator hosts my mail on their server.

I have seven e-mail accounts in TBird, all on the same domain that I own. Mail is hosted by HostGator. My most-used account redownloads the same messages repeatedly. The account checks for mail every minute but the repeats happen only 5- to 8 times a day. This is happening on only this one account and no other. Things I've tried and additional facts:

  • deleted popstate.dat so it would rebuild on next use of TB several times over the last two weeks
  • deleted inbox.msf so it would rebuild on next use of TB several times over the last two weeks
  • uninstalled TB, deleted all TB related files and folders on the computer, restarted the computer, then reinstalled TB from scratch. I transplanted NO files from the old installation, three times over the last two weeks
  • deleted popstate.dat again, and inbox.msf.
  • verified that I am deleting the proper popstate.dat and inbox.msf files for the troubled account.
  • Mails on phone are normal, no duplications.
  • I've run HD and memory tests several times, all negative.
  • Repeats do not happen on every download; it is sporadic several times a day

In weeks prior to this problem I had multiple TBird problems, mostly mail sporadically not being delivered or being delivered anywhere from a few hours to as much as four days late and some not at all, much less than half was delivered timely. I worked on that off-n-on for two weeks and it appears the delivery problem went away on its own as nothing I tried produced a change. As soon as the delivery problem went away, this repeating problem appeared.
