I upgraded to Windows 10 the other day and now when I try to print out an email message it crashes every time. I have upgraded my printer driver and upgraded Thunderbird to the most recent version. I'm getting very frustrated.

After turning on my pc today, I clicked on the Thunderbird icon in the taskbar to open it as usual, but nothing happened. It just stays close, although the program is listed in the task manager after clicking it. I tried deinstalling and reinstalling but everytime I get the same problem. It worked fine until yesterday and I've been using Windows 10 since the beginning and have not installed a new program since yesterday. So nothing changed since the last time it opened normal. Please help me fix this as I depend on this program for my emails... Thank you!

I have a fresh install of Thunderbird on my Windows 10 (Latest build) pc. After linking 4 gmail accounts and a hotmail account, Thunderbird now freezes within two minutes of me launching it. Even after updating to the beta, it still freezes. Thunderbird is amazing and I'm dying to get a good email client working. I have tried safe mode, but that didn't do anything either. I will continue to try things, but if anyone could offer me a solution, I would appreciate it so much. Thanks!

I'm running Thunderbird 38.1.0 on Windows 10, and it keeps freezing. There had been no issues with Thunderbird prior to the Windows 10 upgrade. I already saw the usual "helpful" suggestion that it is not Thunderbird, but faulty drivers. Funny how the first reply is always, it's not our programme, but your system.

How do I get Thunderbird on Windows 10 on the desktop home page

My wife just upgraded to Windows 10 and both Foxfire and Thunderbird are missing from the desktop home page. We depend on Thunderbird for our email, and I have no idea how to get the Thunderbird account on her computer now. Is it hidden somewhere in that new Windows OS (I hate it already!)? Or do I have to go through the whole process of downloading and installing and setting up both programs all over again? My wife did not do backups of windows 7 like she should have, so there isn't anything saved that is useful for this purpose. What should I do BEFORE I start the upgrade process on my PC (which I am now using) or my laptop, both of which are still running Windows 7? At 75 I'm getting tired of all the constant changing going on, none of which has made computing easier or faster, just more difficult. Give me Windows 98SE - it was by far the easiest to use and the easiest to reinstall and not lose anything.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

I cant open any attached microsoft office document ( Exell, Word, Powerpoint ... ) after the Windows 10 update. Saving to desktop and open from the desktop is still working, but directly out of the thunderbird is not possible anymore. First error : program has found an error in the contence. Program can repair ( program can be powerpoint.exe or word.exe or .... ) ( sorry for the translation. I work in a dutch windows enviroment ) When I press 'repair ) I mostly have following error : The file (complete path and filename ) can't be read with the program. Finally I have the below error : The application failed to start properly ( 0xc0000022 ). Press Ok to close the application.

I already tried to remove the standard programm to open the attached file ( Extra / Options / Attachlents / Incoming ... ) But this didn't solve the problem. I hope someone knows how to solve this.

Version used thunderbird : 38.2.0

Thank you already for all the given advice.
