I usually have Thunderbird open while I am using Firefox to google, up date wordpress or whatever.

Every now and again Firefox will freeze and I used to think it was because I had too many tabs open.

But in fact I now know to check Thunderbird where there is usuallly a message saying program not responding.

But as there is no advance alert it can mean most other programs then also become non responsive.

Why is this happening and how can I stop it.

I usually always update Thunderbird when alerted that there is an update.

And why because Thunderbird is unresponsibe does Firefox also freeze.

Thanks

As of this morning, Thunderbird does not see my address book. i realized that addresses are not auto-completed as I type. When I open Address Book from within Thunderbird, there are no subdirectories for Local Addresses and Collected Addresses. View->Layout->Directory Pane is checked.

Looking at my profile folder, there are history.mab and abook.mab files dated several days ago. There are no *.mab.bak files in the profile folder, so I guess these are not corrupted.

When I press F9 while in Write window, address book pops up empty as well.

I can create a new address book with a dummy contact, and it is displayed. I see in the profile folder abook-1.mab file has been created. But still abook.mab and history.mab are not dipslayed.

I use Thunderbird 68.10.0 Please advise, any help is highly appreciated.

When I load Thunderbird from the command line envelope button it gives a different result from loading Thunderbird from the task bar icon. I think it may be looking at a different profile for each load. Any ideas why this happens and can I rectify it. I would be grateful for any help.

Since this has been going on since Feb 2020, is their any intention of meeting their security criteria. I really do not wish to lower my security protections to make this work.

This is to advise you that there appears to be several problems associated with an upgrade to BT Yahoo" mail that was implemented today. (Two problems affect Thunderbird. I'll deal with Tbird seperately). The Mozilla issue is that I requested a password reset to myxxx.btinternet.com account and the message I recieved was in what BT describes as in basic nmode - the way you can read the message without opening it. It was then passed through to Tbird on the same way. I managed to reset my password by selecting the message and viewed it in basic mode{!} which had more structure than before and I was able to identify the string needed to enter into the browser to get to change passwaord - hence I can now e-mail.

Two issues have transpired with Tbird that I assume are assocciated with this BT update:

All messsages come through, lacking formatting and graphics, as potential junk mail until I click 'not junk mail, when the message is fully displayed. Once this is done subsequent messages from the sender are OK.

All tags have been lost, (how can I get them back, if at all?)

Also did BT inform the rest of the world that it was changing it's email and publish a scedule of technical changes and impact so othere who interact with the service can effect any changes to their side?

I can forward e-mails if required.

Dear folks, there are three priority levels and the possibility of leaving it not specified in Lightning Calendar. Tasks with unspecified priority are shown in the task list on the same level as medium priority. My Problem: i would like to use the Eisenhower principle with

   important: yes / no     and
   urgent: yes / no

so that i need four levels instead of three. Does anyone see a possibility to implement this?

So, like many others, I have spend 2 days trying without success to import EVERYTHING from Outlook express mail 2007.

I just want to import mail, setting etc into Thunderbird on a new Win 10 computer and go on with the remaining days of my life.

Thunderbird 68 has been crashing on me fairly often when closing it down. I have not been able to assign a certain activity that causes it as it can close down just one day and crash when closing another day. I am using 68.10.0 but it was also happening in the previous build as well. The only add-ons I have are Enigmail and Lightning (which I don't even use but it is still enabled).

Has anyone else noticed this behavior?

I followed all steps to copy Thunderbird profiles successfully to a new Thunderbird downloaded on a new computer. All email accounts, old settings, and folders (very large, 16.9g) are all in the left pane after I launched the new Thunderbird.

However, many folders in Chinese characters are duplicate, and do not show anything inside the folders. I have transferred the profiles to a new computer many times in the past 10 years, and I have been always successful without any problem using the same method to transfer from one computer Thunderbird to a new computer Thunderbird. But, this is the first time I encounter this problem - duplicate folders than contain nothing inside. I first downloaded the latest version of Thunderbird (68.10). It happened. Then, I thought I should try an older version (60), which is my old computer using Thunderbird 6.0. But it has the same duplicate folders that contains nothing or do not show up anything inside.

I searched in the support articles and discussions on Thunderbird. I tried to delete all MSF files in the folders, which took a long time to do, and restarted the Thunderbird. But, it still does not work. I tried to delete the duplicate folders, in many ways, but it did not allow me to delete. When I click on any folder in Chinese characters, it just has no response, blank in the folders, and it shows no files previously saved. But, if I click on the folders in English, they are working, and all messages saved show up.

I need all those folders which I saved for over 20 years on my teaching and research position. I have been perplexed and frustrated as I have tried to remove and reinstall Thunderbird and transfer data over 10 times in the past few days, spent days by days on this task without finding a solution. I think the only way now is to find an expert who knows the Thunderbird well to help me. I am even willing and happy to pay the service and work provided by any Thunderbird expert, so I can resolve the problem to get these folders work. All folders and sub-folders inside contain a lot of messages.

The strange thing that has puzzled me is that all folders and sub-folders in English work fine, and has messages, but those folders and sub-folders in Chinese language are all duplicate and contain no message inside. Please see the pictures attached for your reference. Can anyone kindly help me? Please do email me and alert me when someone would kindly offer help, and email me: sguo@sfsu.edu Thanks very much!
