Are the contacts in Thunderbird independent of the email account source? I recently migrated a set of email accounts to a new provider. There are now two the email accounts for each address; the new one, named like myemail@mydomain.org and the old one named like myemail@mydomain.org (old). When I eventually remove the "old" email account for each person from Thunderbird, is the address book with that name also going to vanish? The address book is named just like the email account; and the addresses were accumulated during the "old" address period. But I don't see anything in properties of either the address book or the email account in Thunderbird that directly links the two.

Been using TB for donkey's years, no problems. Just recently, I get a pop-up message in the TB window saying it can't download the latest version, and giving me a link to download it manually.

Putting aside the question of why it can't download automatically (any ideas anyone?), why does it even do this when I'm on the latest version? I can see the version in Help -> About, and this is the same version as the latest downloader.

Anyone any ideas? I get this pop-up several times a day, and it's annoying. Thanks

This is the 3rd time I've posted here about crashing in the last month or so. I really do apologize for having to post again but I simply haven’t gotten to a solution. I really need to continue using Firefox as all the other browsers are significantly slower in my experience and I'm in the browser around-the-clock. I’d be willing to pay for customer support from Mozilla but they do not provide any type of support directly as most of you probably know.

Please review this link here to see all the steps I have already taken to troubleshoot the crashes.

I really thought that the crash reports I had would help me pinpoint the issue but it appears as though they’re not very helpful for those who can interpret them. If that’s not the case, I greatly appreciate it if anybody can dig through them to uncover some insights related to why I may be having frequent crashes (I'm willing to pay).

Crash ID from a recent crash: bp-058c91cd-4b9c-46d1-bd12-640ba0210928

Thank you so much for any help.

Does anyone have an explanation or solution?

I have an Xfinity/Comcast POP email account through Thunderbird.

For years, I have reliably used the Download/Sync Now button under the Get/Send Messages tab to sync my email back to the server (i.e. delete emails from the server which I've trashed on the Thunderbird client).

Suddenly, out of the blue, and without changing any settings, this feature no longer works, and emails I delete on the Thunderbird client remain on the server.

I Am on desktop:

i5 9600KF (high performance mode) 16GB 3200mhz ram NVME... Windows 10 Pro x64 Firefox last stable

When I open Firefox tabs aren't loaded all at the same time, but they are suspended. So after that: when I switch between 6 tabs quickly - they start to open at the same time. And CPU usage skyrockets to 100% LOL! Given I Am on high end PC - this is joke! I was using chrome and had hundreds of tabs and Chrome doesn't even suspend them by default. They open all at the same time I think!

So there is something wrong! I tried troubleshooting mode and it was the same problem!

Thanks for help!

The last update, 91.2.0, did not install correctly, and I could not send emails. After Uninstalling Thunderbird and reinstalling, Uninstalling McAfee, and resetting the Windows Defender, I still can not send emails. The latest update is installed. I can receive emails. I really don't want to switch to a different email "bundler," but I have spent 2 days, enlisted an IT professional and am at my wits end.

Do you have any suggestions?

I have three emails accounts. Three work and one doesn't. I click on the inbox in the account that does not work and Thunderbird goes into endless loop. No error messages. No received messages. I use another computer and I get messages. I looked at the saved password file and the working emails accounts have a imap entry and a matching SMTP entry. The non working account does mot have a imap entry. There seems to be no way to enter the imap entry. I have removed the password for the bad account, but the program never get far enough to ask for a password. The program worked for years now it doesn't.

Ever since automatically upgrading to 91.2.0 when I save an email Thunderbird adds a lengthy string of data to the end of the filename which causes me great difficulty. Here is an example from an email from the NYTimes: "Today's Headlines Key to Biden’s Climate Agenda Likely to Be Cut Because of Manchin Opposition" is the filename. Thunderbird automatically adds the following to it. " - The New York Times (nytdirect@nytimes.com) - 2021-10-16 0101"

This information lengthens the filename which I have to delete because it messes up my archive where I save numerous emails. Therefore I have to delete it every time I save an email (60 or more times every day) and interferes with any search I conduct of those saved emails.

I have explored all the options under Tools and Help to no avail. Can you please tell me how I can get rid of this annoyance. It is causing me lost time in my daily work creating an archive of articles. I've been working on this archive for nearly 18 years and this problem is causing me a great deal of grief and lost work time. Thank you.

Hello. I foolishly today, a few hours ago, bought and installed mozilla vpn (1yr subscription). Once this was installed, it somehow screwed up my whole computer setup, and the consequences keep getting worse. I have spent several hours now trying to solve the accumulating issues, and it is getting worse. Of course, I uninstalled mozilla vpn, but that did not help. For example, my thunderbird client was no longer able to download my gmail mail, even though i was using the same password as was working ok on gmail. I put the question to the internet, and the recommendation was to uninstall thunderbird and install it again. which i foolishly did. the new thunderbird installation was balnk - all my e-mail accounts and data were no longer there! moreover, when I try to restart the accounts, thunderbird again rejects perfectly good passwords! This is a massive tragedy for me. please tell me what to do. can i recover my data?

The new release of Thunderbird strains and strains and strains when an email is selected which has large attached files. I cannot scroll the email, I cannot switch away from the email, until Thunderbird completes its processing, whatever it is doing. These emails were not a problem until I updated to version 91.

My version of Thunderbird was upgraded to Version 91 on 9-29-2021 or9-30-2021. When I started my computer on 9-30 all of my calendar information was gone. I tried to input my daily schedule and that went fine. I then restarted Thunderbird to see if that would work all the information I had just input was gone.

The upgrade was automatic per your recommendation but now all of my calendar records are gone. Do you have any suggestions as to how I might be able to restore them? Also the first day of the upgrade, 9-30, the "today's pane" was there but on 10-1 it was not.

thanks for any help

Over 20,000 spam emails arriving in my thunderbird inbox for last 3 hours. I called GoDaddy to ask them about the spam and we have gone into my webmail together and none of the spam emails are in webmail, so they say the problem has to be with Thunderbird. I am running Thunderbird 91.1.2 that was oddly installed today on 10/8/2021, but I don't believe I was ever asked to downloaded. Since the 3 hours of spam and now, I have shut down my computer once and so I am not sure if I was running version 91.1.2 before or after the shut down. I did get a webpage pop up when my computer restarted that said what is NEW in version 91. I am running Windows 7 OS, service pack 1. Please need help asap, as the spam emails keep coming more than 1 per second! Currently I have shut down the software, but I do need to reply to people. This is my work email and very important. I have used TB for about 10 years and never had this issue before. I have many email folders setup over the years. I would be very disappointed and saddened to need to uninstall and re-install everything, and might I lose my emails to redo everything? GoDaddy almost migrated my email from Linux I think to Office 365 about 10 hours before the spam emails started. It does seem slightly supicious that these 2 events are related, but go Daddy said they dod not think the issues were connected and just happen to be coincidental? Thanks so much

Hello.

Current Settings: Enhanced Tracking Protection-Standard Without the Free Adblock installed.

Goal: Minimize tracking and pop-up ads from appearing during my browser session:

Please answer each question separately:

Q1. Is the Standard option sufficient or should it be set to strict?

Answer:

Q2a. Does the Standard option OR the Strict option provide the features of an ad-block or does the free Adblock needs to be installed as well in order to receive full protection?

b. When I was about to install the Free Adblock, a warning came up asking me if it was the best adblocker and confirming that the extension would have permission to access my data from all websites, extend developer tools to access my data in open tabs, display notifications to me, access my browser tabs, and access browser activity during navigation/

Do I really want to install Adblock knowing all of the above details?

All PCs are Windows 10 (64) Home or Pro

After FireFox updated to ver 93.0 (64 bit) the CenturyLink Webmail page fails to load properly (all I get is a blank screen). I know this is because of version 93.0 because the last PC I checked it on (My Windows 10 (64) laptop) still had FireFox 92.0.xx loaded and the webpage loaded fine, then the browser updated and the webmail page failed to load properly. The CenturyLink Webmail Page loads fine on Google Chrome and on Microsoft Edge.

Troubleshooting: In addition to the usual clearing browser data I even tried resetting FireFox on one of my PCs. It didn't help.

Centurylink tech support says there is nothing wrong with their Webmail and to use another browser.

I've attached a screen capture of what I see.
