I have used Firefox and Thunderbird for several years but now I am unable to use Yahoo because of ?Thunderbird being unsecure? So anyway I can't get signed in anymore. I have read everything I can find on the web sites about how to log in but as I read and follow directions I always get to a critical spot where a function/icon/option/ is not available to me. So I'm dead in the water again. I am using Firefox version 83 and Thunderbird version 78, the latest downloads and Windows 10. I guess I'm not very smart on the computer but my question is 'can anybody give me precise instructions how to comply with the Yahoo security snafu? Right now I am using Yahoo until I can find out something about Thunderbird and I hate Yahoo. Secondly is Mozilla fixing the Thunderbird program so it will seamlessly log in?

Any help will be appreciated. My email address is: gaylon.smith@sbcglobal.net

I installed the latest version 81.0.2 - I WISHED I haden't When sending Emails I get-: 'Thunderbird can't connect securely to website.mozilla.org because the site uses a security protocol that isn't enabled'

Now then, I use exactly the same set up on two other computers but with a older Firefox but all with exactly the same Email versions of an ealier Thunderbird.

Question 1. How the blazes can I stop this error?

Question 2. Why is it that I have to answer Cookie permissions before going to a web site.

Question 3. How the hell do can you turn Google search suggestions off - YES, I have search suggestions disabled! The only sure way is to block them with ADblock - WHY can't it be done in Firefox, paying a sum are they?

EDIT: The link should read-: website-archive.mozilla.org

I am trying to migrate from Thunderbird under Windows 7 to Thunderbird on Mac OS (High Sierra). Need to move profile info to the new machine

Not sure if this is the correct place to post my question, given the separation of Thunderbird from Mozilla. If this is not the right place, I'd appreciate a link to the correct one.

I'm new to Mac OS, have been a long time Windows-7 user, and long ago was a UNIX user at my then employer. But it's past time to say goodby to Redmond.

I want to transfer my Firefox Thunderbird email history as well as my address book etc. from the Windows 7 installation of Firefox Thunderbird, (which says it's "68.8.0 (32-bit)", it was updated today, May 10) over to the new (to me) MacBook-Pro Firefox Thunderbird (version latest as of May 9, so far haven't figured out how to cause the Mac Thunderbird to show it's version info)

While the instructions for copying the profile info on the Windows machine and transferring to another Windows machine are clear, and the instructions for copying an existing Mac profile and transferring to a new Mac are clear, I am unable to find any information on how to move the Windows files to the Mac installation.

I tried copying everything in the Windows "Thunderbird" directory to a flash drive, then tried replacing the Thunderbird files on the Mac with the copied files but that didn't work.

What is the procedure I should be following? For the moment I'll be keeping the Win-7 machine "alive" but would really like to abandon it soon.

Thanks for any suggestions.

(edited the question to change Firefox to Thunderbird - c)

Hi. Just recently I noticed I am unable to open attachments that come in on my Thunderbird email account. When I try to open, I get an email window with this included, as if ready to send? I can save these attachments and then view them, but I do not always want to save, just look at them first? Am I missing something or is this the way Mozilla has now set it up???

I have Firefox version 80.0 installed and Thunderbird version 68 email app to view my email. All was working fine.---I click on Moz T-Bird logo on my Dell Windows 7 desktop computer and a screen appears showing all mail and folders, but now I cannot receive nor send any email. If I click on INBOX, I get a blue revolving circle that continues indefinitely without a message. If I click on SEND message, I receive a message which states: Peer using unsupported version of security protocol. The configuration related to mail.brainstorminternet.net must be corrected. I can log in to my ISP provider website which provides a web-based email interface and then log-in to view my mail. I called the company and checked to see if the IMAP was correct. It was. Hopefully you can offer some suggestions as to resolving this problem.

When clicking the button "Thunderbird" for opening the email-browser appears a massage-box containing this description: XML-Verarbeitungsfehler: Nicht definierte Entität Adresse: chrome://messenger/content/messenger.xhtml Zeile Nr. 1636, Spalte 9:

       <toolbarbutton id="appmenu_customize"

^

After appearance of this message it is unpossible to close it as well as procede in opening the Thunderbird-email-browser. All trials to restart the process or even to restart the operating system lead to the similar result. A reinstallation of Thunderbird-software did not lead to any change. For I can not use the email-browser, what means neither receiving nor sending of emails I would like to ask for instruction and support.

I have 3 ATT.net email accounts. They work on android devices and Firefox. 2 have been in use for years on Thunderbird. The third is fairly new and get error message when trying to add to Thunderbird. (Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password). I know the username and password are correct. The configuration is the default pop3 settings (same as other ATT.net accounts on Thunderbird). What is the hangup?

My machine uses Windows 10 Home (currently version 1909, installed 2020-02-17) Following the latest major MS update (night of Feb:16, completed morning of Feb:17), I tried to open Thunderbird. I got the message:

 "Your computer must be restarted to complete a previous update of Thunderbird.  Do you want to reboot now?"

So I rebooted. But still I couldn't open Thunderbird. I again got the same message:

 "Your computer must be restarted to complete a previous update of Thunderbird.  Do you want to reboot now?"

Not having time to investigate further, I have used webmail to get my email for the last nearly 2 months. But it's clunky, and it doesn't give me access to my address list. And in these times of covid19 there are people that I need to contact. So I had another look today. I saved all the files from C:/Users/<my user name>/AppData/Roaming/Thunderbird/Profiles/<profile name>/Mail, and also from C:/Users/<my user name>/AppData/Roaming/Thunderbird/Profiles/<profile name>/ImapMail to a separate disk, together with the address book (abook.mab). I then tried to do a new installation of Thunderbird from the Mozilla website (Thunderbird Setup 68.6.0.exe) - but after a couple of steps I was again told that:

 "Your computer must be restarted to complete a previous update of Thunderbird.  Do you want to reboot now?"

So I went to the Apps&Features screen in MS settings, scrolled down to "Mozilla Thunderbird 68.5.0 (x86 en-US), and tried to uninstall. Again, I got the message:

 "Your computer must be restarted to complete a previous update of Thunderbird.  Do you want to reboot now?"

I have run out of ideas.
