Hello dear team,

apparently TB 78.14 had two parallel processes in installation before 92.1.0 ?

In version 78.14 - I had dark mode and then apparently there was graphics error (due to NVIDIA ?) - this way then a light grey TB was running in background while TB 78.14 with dark mode running in foreground.

Now with 92.1.0 this has gone away - but each time I open and close TB then this message appears in terminal (of Solus 4.3).

I have installed 92.1.0 after I deleted the folder "thunderbird" - but have taken over the settings in folder "./.." :

' ' ' egg@home ~/Downloads/thunderbird $ ./thunderbird

      1. !!! [Parent][RunMessage] Error: Channel closing: too late to send/recv, messages will be lost

egg@home ~/Downloads/thunderbird $

' ' '

There is still a second parent process seeking connection or what does this mean ?! Or is this harmless ?

I can't sign an e-mail with an S/MIME certificate

I have an S/MIME certificate installed within a USB token. My Mozilla Firefox (User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:93.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/93.0 … (read more)

I have an S/MIME certificate installed within a USB token. My Mozilla Firefox (User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:93.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/93.0 - OS: Windows_NT 10.0 19042) can see my certificate via OS Client Cert Module (path: C:\PROGRA~1\MOZILL~1\osclientcerts.dll). Strangely, Tunderbird did not have such "device" loaded, so I managed to load it via Options->Privacy & Security->Security Devices->Load and typing "OS Client Cert Module" and "C:\PROGRA~1\MOZILL~2\osclientcerts.dll" into "Module name" and "Module filename" fields, respectively. Now I can see my S/MIME certificate and choose it as the certificate for signing and encrypting my e-mails within the account with the e-mail address equal to the one trusted by the certificate.

Now come the problems. When I write an e-mail and try to send it digitally signed, I get the following message box:

--- Send Message Error Sending of the message failed. You specified that this message should be digitally signed, but the application either failed to find the signing certificate specified in your Mail & Newsgroup Account Settings, or the certificate has expired. ---

Well, the certificate has not expired. It is present whithin "Your Certificates" tab of "Certificate Manager" dialog; the entire authority chain is present within "Authorities" tab of the same dialog. I can't figure out what is missing. Other applications (e.g. LibreOffice, PDF-XChange Editor) find the same certificate without complaint and, when required, prompt a dialog asking for the PIN of the token. TB does ask for nothing. Perhaps it doesn't know that a password is required.

Below I give some details of mt TB version.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Rosivaldo.

OpenPGP: Automatic encryption if key is available

Hello,

I'm missing the feature of automatic encryption of the mail, if I have a key of the receipent in my openpgp-keyring. This was an essential feature of enigmail months ago. As OpenPGP got implemented in Thunderbird (thanks for that!) this feature was "kicked out". Is there any explanation for this? Will this feature be implemented in the near feature?

As an administrator in a company it's a huge pain in the ass to get all the employees to use mail encryption since they have only two options:

  • Option 1: Encrypt every mail ==> this results in more dialog pop-ups complaining of missing keys (since not everyone uses PGP). Results in no one using this option, because this is annoying for them, but in option 2
  • Option 2: Encrypt manualy by user interaction ==> results in you have to think about mail encryption otherwise the mail is send unencrypted, which happens in most of the cases.

Because of the missing automatic encryption and signing option, this leads into a security hole for many other users.

Thank you for your attention!

I have an email client on my phone, and fortunately this one is not marking these emails as junk, so I am seeing them. In thunderbird I have tried marking as not junk - it moves out of junk for 20 secs, then comes back. I have tried moving manually to inbox 5 times - comes back every time.

Other threads suggest this could be my server. If so, how does that explain that my phone emal client is not moving thenm to junk? I don't know how to paste a screen shot into here. thanks, Sera
