network cache windows folder does very little good for the users... I and most would expect TB to reopen file folder I had opened on the previous sent email w attachment, but no, it opens the cache, and I have to re-navigate to the other proper/previously used folder every time. the constant return to windows cache { C:\Users\xxxxx\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\IE\L5U3CB8I } is irritating and quite an issue. How can I correct this?

I've also got an issue with drag/ drop into the 'attachment pane' -it just will not work. It shows that it will copy 2, then when I release mouse button to drop... nothing. again, what can I do to correct this action?

Much appreciated

My Gmail / Thunderbird Imap hangs, so called stand by mode, has been under discussion for about 15 - 20 years. It takes to send 1st simple E-Mail 20 s. Second E-Mail is 4 s. And what about if you have pictures to send on stanby mode or saving to send later !!!! Same thing with Windows 10 and Ubuntu Mate LTS 18.04. And no one has not got an solution to this "Fault". @gmail.com / Thunderbird

Same thing 1.st sent mail 27 s and the second 27 s and 3.rd 7 s: @outlook.com / Thunderbird

I have been following discussions over the years and Mozilla Support and Community has different kind of proposals, byt no solutions. One solution is to change "Authentication", Normal Password /OAuth2 and stand by mode stays off 2 - 3 sendings ! So only solution is that NASA has something to do with this and I am not giving you enymore money ! Perhaps it shall be Protonmail !

I would like to install a calendar app on my 2 Windows 10 PCs that I can sync with each other. I like the T'bird Lightning Calendar, but I really don't want to use T'bird email client. The web-based email feature of my email service provider works well for me from any PC (personal PCs, hotels, etc.). Can the calendar app be used without the email client? Thanks for any help or suggestions.

Hello all! Hopefully one of you genius gurus can help. On advice from GoDaddy (insert eyeroll), I downloaded Thunderbird as their only solution to be able to do a backup without Outlook. Their instructions were quite vague, however, and I wound up creating an archive of the last 13+ years of emails instead of a backup. But now NOTHING shows in the Archive folders in the left menu, although thankfully I was able to find what looks like might be something in the Profiles folder so I'm not completely panicking.

Any chance there's a way to "undo" the archive and restore everything back? I did try "undo", for the record, holding my breath and crossing my fingers in a Hail Mary fashion (after hours of watching it all unfurl) to no avail.

Attachments: .pdf, .xls, .xlsx, .doc, .docx, .jpg PDF - Adobe or Foxit Reader xls / xlsx / doc / docx - MS Office or WPS Office or Libre Office JPG - MS Paint

Host: W2019 fully patched. Have 15 Users accessing TB via Tsplus (RDP); all working 100% prior to update to 68.3.1 from 68.3.0 Mail is on own hosted Koozali (SME) Linux Mail Server, using in may sites; other sites TB not updated Attachments wont open. Tried removing all Attachment points: tools/options/attachments Open Attachment, asks what App. to use, select correct App, tick box, "always open..", OK

 Attachment Opens

Close TB Open TB wont Open attachments Tried Repair on folders (Right click Folder / Properties) Close TB Open TB wont Open attachments.

Deleted Thunderbird from User\appdata\local & roaming Recreated TB - basic i.e. no addons. Close TB Open TB, wait for mail to completely download; wont Open attachments.

This link has ppl complaining of the same / similar issues; https://www.reddit.com/r/Thunderbird/comments/edi1o8/mozilla_thunderbird_6831_update_buggy/fd9mlq6/

Anyone know how to fix this mess, going deaf with the "very loud noises from the Users"

As has been said elsewhere V68 broke all the addons - gotta ask why the upgrade was so destructive ?

Thank you for reading and any assistance.
