Thunderbird just started doing the following: 1) Isn't allowing me to send email to more than 1 recipient, and 1 CC 2) I can't add any recipients, or CC to a 'Reply All' only allowed to add 1 BCC. 3) I can't add any recipients to a 'Reply' only one CC

This just started this morning; it was working fine on Friday. I've installed the most current version of Thunderbird: Nothing. Windows 10 forced an update on me over the weekend, but I rolled that back already. Anyone know what the frack is going on?????

Greetings:

I have Thunderbird set up to use S/MIME encryption. It has worked as expected for quite some time now. However, after a recent upgrade (I believe it was 78.5.0, which I upgraded to approximately 10 days ago), I can no longer read any emails that were encrypted using my digital cert. This includes e-mails in my "Sent" folder. My certs are setup correctly underneath Account -> End-to-End Encryption -> S/MIME. They are not expired. I have "Require encryption by default" selected but left "Add my digital signature by default" unchecked.

Looking at the Error Console, I do not see anything that to me seems related to the issue -mostly Exceptions in "L10nRegistry.jsm" , "ActorManagerChild.jsm", and "Extensions.JSM".

Any advice as to how to troubleshoot or fix would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I've been using MyPhoneExplorer for years to keep my Android phone in sync with my Thunderbird address book and calendar.

With the recent upgrade to 78.5.0 (32-bit), the contact sync no longer works between the two, failing with

"Loading entries from Thunderbird failed" (See image attached).

The first time I ran MyPhoneExplorer a new plugin did get loaded for Thunderbird but I didn't note the name.

I've tried restarts and reboots, making sure Thunderbird was launched first, and even running MyPhoneExplorer with admin privileges. I'm running Version 1.8.15 of MyPhoneExplorer on a W10 64 bit platform.

I need to roll back Thunderbird until this is corrected so any tips on reverting to a previous version of Thunderbird would also be appreciated.

Clicking on links within emails no longer opens the page in my browser. I followed the different steps in this article (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/hyperlinks-in-messages-not-working), specifically the following:

  • Confirmed that Chrome is set as the default browser
  • Checked that no application is specified for the HTTP content type
  • Checked for an incorrect preference (no network.protocol-handler preferences found)
  • Started Thunderbird in Safe Mode

None of these resolved the problem. I am running Windows 10 Home on a Dell Inspiron.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi all. When I went to bed this morning my Thunderbird installation on Windows was working perfectly, but when I woke up and restarted my PC Thunderbird was unable to download any emails from my Gmail account. It just hangs, with the message in the status bar displaying "<email address>: Connected to imap.gmail.com..." for a few seconds, but never downloads anything.

I also tried sending an email through the same account in Thunderbird, and the message successfully sends, but Thunderbird gives me an error dialog with the message: "Your message was sent but a copy was not placed in your sent folder (Sent Mail) due to network or file access errors. You can retry or save the message locally to Local Folders/Sent Mail-<email address>." If I select the option to save the message locally to Local Folders that appears to work (2 new files called "Sent Mail-<email address>" and "Sent Mail-<email address>.msf" were created in my Thunderbird profile/Mail/Local Folders directory).

I can still receive and send emails perfectly fine using the Gmail client on my phone, and I've checked the status of my Google account, to eliminate that as a potential problem. My data usage on the Google account is well below the limit, and my app permission for Thunderbird on Windows is still saved and working according to the Google dashboard and the fact I can still send emails through Thunderbird on Windows.

The error dialog above suggests the problem is local to my machine, but I don't know how to test that at all. The drive my Thunderbird installation and Profile are on has plenty of free space (~370GB on an M.2 NVMe drive), and when I use the Local Folders save option above that successfully saves Sent Mail to the same drive.

I'm running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit with Thunderbird 78.5.0 (32-bit), and I'd really appreciate any help or advice anyone could give. Thanks.

Good afternoon. Since the latest update to Thunderbird has arrived I keep getting a message when I log-on to retrieve my E-mails which says “ You are attempting to override how Thunderbird identifies this site. Click below to create a security exception.”

So each time I have to click on the box which prompts me to create a security exception. When I click the box to “ save “ the exception, it makes no difference. I have to do it every time.

As if this were not bad enough, I am now getting asked to “ verify my password “ for each of my two E-mail accounts, every time I try to access my E-mails. This never happened to me before and has only started over the past week or so.

I have AVG security in addition to their “ Premium Technical Support “ which costs a lot of money. I telephoned them today and spoke with two of their technical advisers, also gave them remote access to my PC so they could fix the problem. I spent almost TWO HOURS on the telephone while they tried various things, checked my operating system, checked the server details on Thunderbird and also ran the “ RKILL “ programme to check for any faults. They told me everything was fine. But after they had gone and I tried again to access Thunderbird, the same problems re-occurred. Surely there must be a simple way to address these two issues. I am getting very fed-up and wish I could simply speak to a technician on the telephone instead of like this ! Why can’t we do that ?

Hi all:

I've been using an internal email server (Postfix and Dovecot) some years ago with no problem. It is configured with STARTTLS, just a basic configuration. I have been using self-signed certifcates, the same certificates generated "by default", stored in:

/etc/ssl/certs/ssl-cert-snakeoil.pem (Postfix, SMTP server) /etc/dovecot/private.dovecot.pem (Dovecot, IMAP server)

With Thunderbird 68.x I have no problems... But with Thunderbird 78.x, it is impossible to accept this certificates.

Things I've tried:

  1. Unckeck "query OSCP responder servers" option.
  2. Create a new self-certificate using openssl (req -x509 -sha256 -nodes -days 365 -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout privateKey.key -out certificate.crt)
  3. Use a certificate generated by certbot (letsencrypt)
  4. Enable outdated security protocols (see https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/thunderbird-78-faq)

None of this things have worked. When I configure the email, the window freezes, and it is unable to continue. If I click to "Get certificate" or "Confirm security exception", I get no response at all (I attach an image to show it). It is no possible to "install" the certificate from "Certificate Manager" section.

Also, server dovecot log shows "SSL routines: ssl3_read_bytes:sslv3 alert bad certificate: SSL alert number 42". I understand it seems that the certificate is invalid, but in Thunderbird v68 and below it works perfectly.

Any suggestion will be appreciated.

Thank you!

I've been using Thunderbird for ages without any (real) problems. A few days ago, Thunderbird updated to version 78.5.0. Shortly thereafter the problems started. I can't remember if it started immediately after the update so I'm not sure if the update was the direct cause.

Anyway, every time I try to retrieve my mail (by clicking "Get Messages") a pop-up appears:

(See image attachment)

This pop-up isn't new to me since I'm using my own mail server with a self-signed certificate. So every time I update the certificate, I get this popup. It is new however the pop-up appears while nothing has changed (other than Thunderbird updating).

If I click "Confirm Security Exception", the popup disappears but no mail is retrieved. If I click "Get Messages" again, the pop-up reappears. Oddly enough, If I go to Thunderbird's Certificate Manager, I see the certificate was actually added.

So that's one strange thing. It isn't the strangest thing however. What's even stranger is that the location (email.glasshouse.nl:995) isn't the address of my mail server. If I look under Thunderbird's "Server Settings", I see the correct address. Even if I change the server address to something else (the IP address for instance), the pop-up still displays email.glasshouse.nl as location. I'm not worried this is some kind of hack or virus or malware since I recognize the address - it's the mail server I used well over ten years ago (in Thunderbird).

So what is actually going on here? And more important, how can I solve this so I can get to my email again?

Thanks in advance!
