Hi! I last used Thunderbird with davmail on Ubuntu in 2015. I have since regularly upgraded my OS and software. The data partition has always been separate. I don't seem to find the data any longer and the new version of Thunderbird seems very different. Any ideas?

Thank you!

The default font in Thunderbird 78.1 is so ridiculously small on my 22inch 1080p monitor screen that it is seriously hurting my eyes. (Screen resolution is optimal and T-Bird is the only one I have a problem with.)

I have looked all over and have not found any real solutions and Ctrl+ is only a temporary workaround. It becomes a major annoyance after awhile.

Is there anyway to default the font sizes universally in T-Bird or at least the Incoming mail pages ?

Just about ready to give it up.

Hello,

Some background, we used to be on GoDaddy email host for almost a decade until about two years ago we swapped over to GSuite. When we made the swap, all the emails weren't transferred over and we could still access them as a separate Thunderbird program since they were POP3. We don't have access to the old email anymore.

Now I recently got a new computer because my old one crashed but the data on the old drive is still accessible. What we tried to do was to transfer the old profile then add it to Thunderbird as my Local Folders while my GSuite account is the main email. However, nothing is in there and the email folders I had are gone. We used an old machine to boot into the old drive and found my emails still intact but we can't export them. The old Thunderbird is on version 90.0 and we want to know how to extract them to my new computer.

We also tried on the old computer to install different versions of Thunderbird but it kept saying the profile is too new for this program, please install the newer one. We did download the Thunderbird that matched the old one to the new machine then created a profile to find the path to the old one, but didn't load in any emails.

I have a W10 desktop with TB78 installed. I have several IMAP (Gmail) accounts and one POP account; the IMAP accounts still work, but the POP account (AT&T) will not send or receive messages (says password is incorrect). I checked my web email access (myAT&T) and it works fine (uses same password as TB account). I also have another W10 desktop that has TB68 installed, and it has the same problem. I have an old W7 desktop, and I downloaded TB78 to it, and it also has the same problem.

So the problem seems to affect both TB68 & TB78 and only affects the POP account. I have not changed anything in the last day. I tried disabling antivirus firewall and also tried lowering the TLS min to 1, but neither helped. The "saved passwords" for the SMTP account is correct

Any suggestions as to what happened and how I can restore that POP account in TB?

Thanks.

I am using the no-remote option in Thunderbird to manage two separate profiles. Clicking on any link in an email results in "Firefox is already running, but not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window."

Links open from Outlook emails in Firefox with no issue. I can change my default browser to Chrome and open links from thunderbird. This seems to be something with the no-remote option I am using in Thunderbird but I cannot find any documentation on this behavior that isn't Firefox specific (which isn't the application using the -no-remote switch though I realize they share some common codebase)

It's more a nuisance than anything else. I can still copy paste links if I really want to look at something from a mail I received in Thunderbird. If someone has a link to some documentation that explains this behavior I'd appreciate it.

Hi Mozilla on Edith Av?~ Some background....Issue Lost Sub folders on left side panel after Geek Squad did an update on line, while I slept 6/7. On 6/8 I returned to email Thunderbird mail Client. Yikes my 130 or so customized Sub Folders, were missing,only 30 or so remained. I returned to second agent on line, and here is what happened he saw the files, but could not, move or open with and email listed. NOTE :I have unlimited tech support and have a great local agent at Best Buy MT View,CA, not far from Mozilla on Edith AV, so my request is for instructions for local Agent, Paul to solve the issue. I have included exactly what Paul tried.I am working in house now.

1) What I have...Desk Top Dell Window 8.1 Version 78 Thunderbird Client/ Earthlink.net/ and Att service.I have an external hard-drive and Norton 360 Deluxe Cloud(cloud was not activated by mistake,turned on now). My computer was updated, on line by Geek Squad over night while I slept 6/6 . I returned to email later on 6/7 and then saw out of my 130 sub folders,now had only 30 or so left. Sadly when called Norton, the CLOUD was not activated on this computer, it was on my laptop. Now it is activated. I have a second laptop /windows 10/ Norton 360 Deluxe WITH CLOUD always on.This laptop has about 30 sub folders,Version 38.

2) As I mentioned, I called to back toGeek on Line 6/7, and the agent DID find the the sub folders,but could not bring them BACK to panel. When we opened these files, you see mixed up code. No Text. I asked him to make a copy of all 130 or so of Titles, and he used PAINT and stuck them on the desk top. He sent me back to the Best Buy Store, to see my in house support.

2) I brought both computers to Best Buy. Here are the steps that Paul tried at MT View Best Buy. I am pasting to bottom of this request. He is a wizard, and we need your help to my email and I will send to him. My email is isail2@earthlink.net, phone is 650 704 3994 Palo Alto, Stanford Medicine, after 11am PST please since I' m working late tonight till 4 am. Paul did everything your support page said. No luck. We did not see it on external drive, and by accident my CLOUD was not activated,but is now.

3) Paul's attempts:

Created a new account on client computer and copied Thunderbird data into new account issues persist.

Added Thunderbird backup location to Norton backup and ran data backup.

Validated Norton data was moved to backup location

Attempted import-export tool to migrate data files from Blue Dell to Dell Desktop.

 Nothing appears to have migrated, even after multiple attempts of using the import-export add in.

Copied Mozilla Profile Data from Blue Dell to Dell Desktop

Thunderbird data was migrated to the Dell Desktop's desktop folder. Thank You, Sandra M Karol

When TB has blocked remote content has it prevented the content from being downloaded? In other words if I do not click on the allow option have I saved the data download that would be otherwise used to download the content? I connect my laptop to the Internet via data on my phone and have a limited data plan. If I'm not interested in seeing the remote content and don't let TB show it, do I save on data usage?

Hi, I'v read https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/thunderbird-and-gmail but it is still not clear if Thunderbird fully support gmail labels.

For example: If I were to put an email message in two different folders in Thunderbird, will Gmail know that this is one message that should get two labels. Or, because Thunderbird doesn't fully support gmail labels: will Gmail see 2 separate mails each with a folder label?

Thank you (I'm avoiding to having to install Thunderbird, configure etc to find this out).

PS: if not. Any email clients that do fully support labels?

I have multiple email accounts under Thunderbird. When I Reply to a message in my Sent folder to provide follow-up to the message, it correctly addresses it to the previous recipient list and shows the current account as sender. However, when I hit Send, it changes the sender to another account (same other account, and not the Local one) and puts the message in that account's Sent folder.
