For some unknown reason I cannot start Thunderbird anymore. The error is:

XML Parsing Error: undefined entity Location: chrome://messenger/content/messenger.xhtml Line Number 905, Column 3:

 <key <="" id="openLightningKey" pre="">

--^

Because it won't even start I don't know ehere to start and I am even more mystified that there seems to be a path to chrome which I have not installed as far as I know. I did install lightning a year ago and this worked nicely until know it seems.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thunderbird Linux keeps asking for passwords where it didn't before

Here's how it used to work and how I would like it to work: I start Thunderbird, it requests password(s). After I enter them correctly, Thunderbird scans for new mail and will periodically scan for new mail. I could scan sub-folders like sent or trash without entering a password. Sending email requires inputting the password the first time. This behavior used to persist until I closed Thunderbird.

Here's how it is working now: I start Thunderbird, it requests password(s). After I enter them correctly, Thunderbird scans for new mail. Initially I can enter sub-folders soon after startup without entering a password. After some number of minutes if I click on the inbox or do a "get new mail" or enter a sub-folder, it requires I enter the password again. Thunderbird no longer checks for new mail as it seems to have forgotten the password(s) I entered. Sending an email requires entering the password every time to send, and entering the password again every time so it can be copied to the sent folder.

I've been using Thunderbird for decades and this new behavior is very frustrating. 

I recently converted one of my emails (yahoo) to oauth2 as yahoo imap will soon be disabled. I noticed the new behavior after this change, but cannot definitely attribute the undesirable behaviour to this change. After this change, the yahoo account no longer requires entering the password upon opening Thunderbird, for entering sub-folders or sending mail. This appears to be persistent.

What I've tried with no success: Run Thunderbird with addons disabled - undesired behaviour. Reinstall current version of Thunderbird - undesired behaviour. Reinstall older version of Thunderbird (clean profile forced) - undesired behaviour. Reinstall current version of Thunderbird with no yahoo account - undesired behaviour. Reinstall older version of Thunderbird (clean profile forced) with no yahoo account - undesired behaviour.

Any assistance that could be provided would be greatly appreciated.

Here's the pertinent troubleshooting info: Name Thunderbird Version 68.12.0 Build ID 20200820223055 User Agent Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:68.0) Gecko/20100101 Thunderbird/68.12.0 OS Linux 4.19.0-10-amd64 Profile Directory (Local drive) Build Configuration about:buildconfig Memory Use about:memory Performance about:performance Registered Service Workers about:serviceworkers Multiprocess Windows 0/0 Disabled Remote Processes 0 Enterprise Policies Inactive Google Location Service Key Missing Google Safebrowsing Key Missing Mozilla Location Service Key Missing Safe Mode false Profiles about:profiles Mail and News Accounts ID Incoming server Outgoing servers Name Connection security Authentication method Name Connection security Authentication method Default? account2 (none) Local Folders None Normal password account3 (imap) imap.gmx.net:993 SSL/TLS Normal password mail.gmx.net:587 SSL/TLS Normal password true account4 (imap) imap.googlemail.com:993 SSL/TLS Normal password smtp.googlemail.com:587 SSL/TLS Normal password true account5 (imap) imap.mail.yahoo.com:993 SSL/TLS OAuth2 smtp.mail.yahoo.com:465 SSL/TLS Normal password true

Hi Im writing this post from my kids laptop but the problem is with my computer. I was in the middle of something when computer froze and it is now dead. I was able to check if I can access files from live cd and yeah I can see my files but I need to reinstall windows7. When I do it I will loose my files. I need to recover few more things than just files. The question to you is... how can I recover all my tabs, my open session, all logins, passwords etc in Firefox?. Im hoping it is stored somehow deep in windows and I can just copy/paste these files to new reinstalled windows7

Q: Does anyone know if Firefox has maybe re-instated pinch zoom functionality for Mac users?

Or if there is a decent work around available yet?

And if not, anyone have a good answer as to why Firefox overlooked it in their last major update? Seems rather shortsighted to me. Not being able to pinch zoom on my mac trackpad is highly frustrating. It's pretty much a deal breaker, making me want to migrate back to Chrome or elsewhere. Which is sad, because I thought I'd finally escaped Google for browsing.

I am starting a new thread even though I saw a lot of people are having this issue with the latest vs of Firefox and it was never answered. Just marked as answerd.

I was trying to download a pdf from my banking app which never had an issue before. I get the download failed in the notifications dropdown men. I don't know if it makes any difference but it's always 2 messages and they recur every day. Not sure what It was that I was trying to download this last time but it's still trying to get the file. (pdf) I just want it to stop. I will use Dolphin or something to get files until it is fixed in Firefox. I delete cache, quit, close all tabs etc. I had already tried the uninstall & reinstall to no avail. Whatever it's still trying to get its a pdf also. Note 9 One UI 2.0. Android 10

Immediately after updating TB to Version 78.4 my email accounts with Earthlink and Comcast ISP's stopped functioning (incoming and outgoing). I have used TB for over 5 years and been running IMAP on all my email accounts with previous versions of TB without any issues. After trying fixes found on support forums (i.e. changing config setting security.tls.version.min from 3 to 1) I was able to get my Comcast accounts working but not my Earthlink account (which is my primary account). After 1 1/2 hours with Earthlink Tech support, I was told I needed to reinstall TB with the previous version that worked. For me this is unacceptable. Why use a specific Email client if new versions do'nt work with my ISP's or I need to tweak config files. This should all be transparent to the user. Can anyone help me with fixing my problem. Thanks.

Hello,

I'm not sure when it started, maybe a week ago. When I open firefox, I'm logged out of "most" of my accounts sometimes. I'll log back in and it will last a few browser closing and reopenings. Some websites seem to log out quicker, or it's possibly just random.

I've been using Firefox for a very long time and I've never had an issue like this. It's frustrating because I have to go through 2-factor each time a website logs me out. And so far, it hasn't happened to Discord in browser. It affects Gmail, Hotmail, Twitter, Facebook, and Reddit.

I did not change any settings recently until after it started happening (I set "Enhanced Tracking Protection" to standard thinking it would help but it hasn't).

Thank you.

Hi all -

Just upgraded to TB 78 on Windows 10 x64, Build 2004. Noticed two major things:

Issue 1 -

All of the mail folder icons are no longer yellow. Just a stark white with a black edge. I attached an Image of the issue for review.

Issue 2 -

My Message Composition Pane is dark with white letters and most incoming text mail is the same.

I do have some dark colors set up under PC Settings -> Personalization but everything was working perfectly prior to this new release.

I attached Images of the issue for review. Note the "dark haze" over the HTML email.

No add-ons are enabled!

Any help appreciated! Kind of urgent to me.

TIA :)

I cannot send email. I can receive no problem. I am with Spectrum for my email and ISP. I have quadrupled checked my SMTP information multiple times, including with Spectrum. They won't support 3rd party email programs, so won't help me. I don't want to use another email address (I have been sending and receiving for years,.) or use their webmail just to send. This started about a year ago, not sure what version of FF I was using at the time. I am using version 78.4.0 currently. I have tried changing ports from 465 to 587 and back with no change. I have even tried rebuilding the account. Every time I send an email I get this message: Sending of the message failed. The message could not be sent because the connection to Outgoing server (SMTP) mail.twc.com timed out. Try again.

I have contacted Spectrum about this and they said that the SMTP server is working fine. I would assume so since I can receive mail. This is so infuriating. Hopefully someone can give me some ideas that I haven't tried.

My inbox will not display messages. I can still view the messages when I click on them, but the inbox itself is completely blank. I found the above note in a closed forum topic from a couple of years ago. It describes my problem exactly. The answer said to click on the little icon above the up arrow and choose restore defaults. Found and clicked on the icon but no restore defaults option was there. This just happened this morning for no apparent reason. Holds true for all of my email accounts. the sent folders seem to display correctly . I don't know if I did something wrong but would really appreciate some advice. Thanks in advance!! RC

A few days ago Firefox automatically updated and destroyed all my logins and passwords and a huge amount beside. Yes, there was blurb about how to find them which involved a file which did not exist on my system and the whole was not comprehensible.

I did ask for help but got nothing

Somehow, the next day my system had gone back to the earlier setup. Now Firefox wants me to update AGAIN!

Given my experience how can I trust Firefox not to destroy my data?
