Hello dear Mozilla (or should I say Thunderbird) crew and community,

After some twelve years of using Thunderbird (TB) on an extensive scale I decided to finally move over from MS Outlook (OL) (and Windows) all the way. Two weeks ago I started converting my major offline mail boxes (5000+ emails) from OL to TB (using export-to-MSG-files + convert-files to-EML + import-to-TB). Everything goes as planned and flawless, so far. I also was able to export/import my address book (contacts list) into TB version 91.10 without any problem. Today I accepted an upgrade to version 102.3. It looks good, I like the color support on the folders and the sleek interface. But when I open my address book I don't see how to order my contact list by 'Bijnaam' (the dutch field name; 'Nickname' I guess it is in English). I use this field to order my contacts by area of mutual interest. Is it possible to add this field again in the TB version 102 address book list of fields displayed (so that I can order by it)?

Thank you in advance for your help or suggestions,

I added an own Adress book in TB "icloud-contacts" which is connected to icloud with TB Sync. So I have 3 Adress books: 1:Personal 2:Icloud-contacts 3:CollectedAdresse (Gesammelte Adressen)

In previous versions of TB it searched all 3 Adressbooks when writing an Email and entering some letters in the TO: field (Auto completed)

Thunderbird 102.3.0 does only search in 1:Personal 3:Collected, but does not search my own adressbook 2:IcloudContacts anymore when writing mails

When searching in the Adressbook directly, TB 102 finds all addresses in all 3 addressbooks. Only when writing emails it does not.

How can I solve this problem?

After updating to 102.3.0, my desktop Thunderbird no longer shows a number of sub-folders it once showed. Some sub folders, however, seem to be showing just fine. I cannot discern a difference between what did and didn't show up. I can see all my folders and sub-folders in my webmail (Rackspace). It's very hard to understand what might be causing this. I tried a number of things to no avail:

1. Tried re-naming and removing an special characters 2. Tried moving them to new folders or moving them out and back again on webmail 3. Tried creating a new folder on desktop Thunderbird and moving sub-folders into that on webmail 4. Restarted Thunderbird any number of times and after each above change

None of the above worked. Though strangely *once* when I created a new folder on webmail and moved a sub-folder into it, it then showed up on desktop Thunderbird. Doing the same thing again to another sub-folder did not work. SO PUZZLING.

Please help! Any guidance or a bug fix please developers, would be SO appreciated. I know you all work hard and I appreciate your open service so much. Dedicated user for more than a decade, easily!

After I open Thunderbird, I eventually get a nag screen saying: "Thunderbird can't update to the latest version. Download a fresh copy of Thunderbird and we'll help you to install it"

I'm already on the latest version of Thunderbird! Version 102.2.1 . This question has been asked before but all those replies dealt with adding an exception to Avast. I do not use Avast. I use AVG Free and Zone Alarm Pro. I do not use any programs that check to see if a program needs to be updated.

The nag screen started about a week ago. That was right after I updated to Version 102.2.1 . AVG Free and Zone Alarm Pro have NOT been updated. Was something new added to Thunderbird that requires I add an exception to AVG Free or Zone Alarm Pro? Or is there a bug in Thunderbird's V102.2.1?

I eased into first v102 with no problems, and I think the one that you had automatically overwritten was 102.1.0 that now wants to auto update to 102.2.2 but tells me it can not find 90 folders. (If it was the one that I used last time, why would the folders suddenly be "lost"? Later I realized that your procedure had apparently overwritten the version that was having no problems)

I sampled a couple and apparently all 90 of the folders are there and have contents, but I do not know how to follow the advice, which was something like 'make sure they are there then <the part I do not understand so don't know what to do>.

WhenEVER I figure out what to do, I will have to do it 90 times apparently. That is going to be a royal waste of time, when what I really need to do right now is move emails out of GMail and Hotmail because my space on their servers is getting very tight. So of course NOW is when I have to hit this snag! Many of those can't-be-found folders are where I need to move emails to, but, in the words of Murphy's Law or maybe one of its corollaries, "Whatever you want to do, you have to do something else first."

This time noodling around I found the "Before moving from 91 to 102" advice, but only after getting to the point of "Restart to upgrade to 102.2.2," so I have no way to postpone the current update.

THEN I decided to make a duplicate copy of whatever version opened tonight, in order to see if I can open it without having to submit to automatic upgrade, which caused the problem. but it now shows 102.2.2. It has apparently overwritten whatever was there before; it's not in the trash, so I can't go back to whatever was there in order to back up items before making the upgrade. (Hint: make safe upgrade steps available BEFORE forcing an automatic upgrade. (When you want to force an automatic upgrade, supply cautionary advice before writing the code to be automatic

Oh, wait! I DID keep a backup install file for 102.1.0. (I had figured out to do that when I had problems makig the transition to the first or second three-digit version, since that was when I learned that often you force these upgrades without sufficient preparation for us common folk.) But there's no way I can run it to find and back up profile and files before your automatic process overwrites it again.

I have spent an extra hour and need to go to sleep. Therefore I will quit Thunderbird and obviously will have to hassle with this all over again, especially since it is now Sunday and I doubt that there will be any extensive help for another 30 or more hours.

Thunderbird 102.3.0 (64-bit) Provider for Google Calendar 102.00 Windows 11

After recent update my google calendar events disappear from Lighting calendar. If I move into the next week the recurring events do not appear and when I move back into my current week they are no longer displaying. I have tried clicking on the eye to not display and display again and that doesn't work. I have tried to re-sync the items and that does not work. I have removed all other addons other than Provider for Google Calendar and that didn't work either. There hasn't been an update to Provider for Google Calendar since June so I'm assuming that this is a Thunderbird issue. The only way I've found to get my calendar events back again is to unsubscribe and then subscribe to my google calendar again. I can't keep doing that.

I have noticed that the calendar that doesn't appear is my Google Workspace calendar. The other calendars are part of free gmail accounts.

Any ideas how I can work out what's going on? If not, how can I go back to a previous version where this was working?

TIA, Karen

A week or so ago, an older release of Thunderbird asked me to manually install 102.3.0, which I did. Now, with 102.3.0 installed, I am asked to download and install 102.3.0 again each and every day. How do I stop this idiotic behavior? I can't even install a newer release, because this is the current release. Am I the only one in this situation. Very puzzling.

Migrated all of my email identities from older Windows 10 computer (Toshiba Satellite) to newer and faster computer (iMac with Bootcamp set to boot Windows 10). I had problem before with download speed (had to click Get Messages and wait through very long display of "Checking Inbox for new messages" several times, with the message disappearing without downloading any messages (which my iPhone, using native iOS Mail, had already received an hour or two ago), then downloading began, eventually ending with "xxx messages downloaded," but still behind the iPhone's inbox. The idea of migrating was to make it work faster, but this new computer seems to be even slower. In addition, when I click Get Messages "too soon," whatever that means, I get an error message titled "Error with account xxxx," with the text "The account xxxx is being processed. Please wait until processing is complete to get messages." But there is never any alert to tell me when the "processing" completes; I just have to wait a while and keep trying.

I do have a very large inbox, and also a number of messages (but there is no way to count them) open in tabs. I need to prune both, but I need decent response in order to do that (and I have to keep up with new messages at the same time). Any idea what I can do to get rid of this message and speed things up?

(My email is in att.net, meaning it is managed by Yahoo! The iPhone, naturally, uses the IMAP server, while Thunderbird on Windows uses POP3.)

Hi,

Occasionally the scumbag spammer, whom is constantly harassing me, sends me emails with the sender name or subject written in a weird font.

In those cases, even when I have a filter that usually filters out and deletes emails with the text in question, the filter doesn't recognise this text when these weird fonts are used and the spam email isn't deleted. I have attached some example images below.

What I want to know is whether there is any way of setting the message filters or downloading an add-on so that I can set up a filter to delete any emails containing these weird fonts?

Many Thanks,

Yesterday my Thunderbird crashed I suppose. When I tried to open it I kept getting that the shortcut for thunderbird. exe have been chenged or moved. I couldn't find thunderbird anywhere. So I downloaded again. Yesterday it worked fine had had all my emails, files and addressbooks. Today I try to open it and I got something that said I had to put in my name email password, basically like putting everything in. I did that for one email and I got my emails BUT I have no addressbook or files. I am at a loss. I am devastated because some of those file had things not only that I needed, but memories (like my father's last emails).

HELP! What do I do. Please understand that I am not a computer geek so please explain clearly, in a way I can maybe hopefully get my information back. I have used Thunderbird for years and this is the first time I have had a problem. Please help!

thank you.
