Good day. My Thunderbird updated to version 91.2.0 Since then, when I press the Delete key, the program does not respond to the mouse wheel. When a message is displayed, I use the mouse wheel to move the message up/down. Now, however, there are a few moments where the program does not respond to the wheel. I have to wait a bit or click on the program window to continue.

I created a bug report: Bug 1735988 Opened 6 days ago https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1735988 When press 'Delete' while reading message, Thunderbird window loses focus

The header on replies includes all the links from which the email arrived. Its unnecessary and it used to be shorter. HELP indicates that I can change the "Header box" to normal rather than ALL. How do I do this? I can't find the header box entry place. Thanks for your help.

Sorry! 0 results found for ‘

during last 12 months have had several crasheson thunderbird which I use now about 10 years. all profiles both for thunderbird and firefox seemed to have been re-new-installed. I am a serious user but not technical and know little about profiles and restoring them. I am stubling by with a uptodate w10-64b with hardly historical profiles but all on the same disk and some older bku's. Looks like I need a lot help tobegin, language english and very in depth knowledge of Mozilla is required I think with all those renewed version the last years. Hope to hear. Thanks Willem

GOOD THING I MADE A COPY OF THIS MESSAGE. IT TIMED OUT BEING SENT.

I have two gmail accounts, one yahoo, and one hotmail on my HP laptop, running Windows 10.

I've been having server authentication problems with Thunderbird on all of them ('except 'hotmail) since 9/22/21 for incoming mail and 9/17/21 or 9/20/21 for outgoing mail. Each account gives me the "failure while connecting" message. Screen shots attached.

Hotmail often gives me "your email was not sent; try again later" message. BUT it has sent the message and it has been received! Sorry, no screen shot of that error message.

I don't remember the terminology, but I have "listed" Thunderbird as safe/allowed to log in on my behalf with each of my accounts.

From the PC, I am able to log in to all of these email accounts directly with the same user/passwords entered in Thunderbird. My Galaxy S7 Smartphone successfully sends & receives from each of these accounts using a different mail client.

Please let me know if you need information on the server set ups. Until today, I did not realize the extent of this issue. I really need help! Thanks.

In the last two days all of my messages have been immediately marked as read (i.e., unread messages do not show up in bold). In options I have chosen 'Automatically mark messages as read after displaying for 10 seconds', and in the past this has meant the incoming message showed as bold until I opened and read it, and that the main display indicated how many unread messages I had. I am using Firefox 78.13.0 in Windows 10, but this did not happen after an update: it simply happened overnight. Just now I sent a message from my Gmail account to my Firefox address and have not opened it in Firefox: on my iPad it shows as unread, but on my PC it shows as read, even though I haven't touched it. This problem applies to all three mailboxes in the Firefox account: when I look at the main Firefox display, there is no bold to indicate that any of the mailboxes have new messages.

 This is very annoying in terms of business--I can't immediately see whose messages I have not yet read, and whether any new messages have arrived in a particular mailbox since I last opened Firefox (it is too distracting to keep it open all the time).  Many thanks for any help.
