Why do I get a pop-up warning, "Thunderbird can't update to the latest version"?

This is a newer, better version of a question that I previously bungled badly. As of this morning, I was running TB 68.1.0 (32-bit) on Windows 10 Pro (10.0.18362). Every day or two, I was getting a pop-up window warning me that TB couldn't update to the latest version and I needed to download a "fresh copy". This warning had a whiff of strangeness about it, so rather than using the link provided, I downloaded the latest version from the Mozilla site and installed it. Even though I'm now at the latest version on the release channel, I'm still getting the same warning, (see attached screenshot). Is this a legitimate warning coming from TB? If so, what do I need to do to dismiss it?

Thunderbird performed an automatic update to 68.1 from 60.9 today. Upon restart of the program, TB came up in 68.1 with empty fields. No mailboxes. Won't start Options. Can't start Troubleshooter. Everything from 60.9 is gone, and I can't figure out how to bring it all back in 68. I can uninstall 68 and reinstall 60, and everything goes back to normal, but then the automatic update cycle starts again. Please help!

I got a message from yahoo mail saying they will no longer support current sign in methods. They give instructions for how to update thunderbird for the new settings, which basically involves deleting the old yahoo account and setting up a new one. Following those instructions results in all of my mailboxes and messages being deleted -- what a brilliant solution! I have years of messages I don't want to lose. Fortunately I had a backup of my .thunderbird directory (this is Linux, thunderbird v. 68.11.0)

See here for how NOT to do this "upgrade": https://help.yahoo.com/kb/new-mail-for-desktop/SLN27791.html?impressions=true Don't follow those instructions or you will lose all of your messages and mailboxes.

So, is there a way I can delete and re-install the account settings using the automatic features yahoo wants, without losing everything?

Some 2-3 years ago I switched ISP from Sky to Plusnet, but my wife did nothing and continued to use Sky email, and somehow it still worked.

Last week her PC was infected with the new Locky ransomware, attempts to remove the encryption proving fruitless, it was necessary to wipe the disc and restore a 2 month old image.

Everything else is now OK, she still receives email from Sky, BUT IS UNABLE TO SEND MAIL as she has no idea of her password – the couple she uses on sites that are not security risks do not work. I am no longer a customer of Sky for TV or email, and Sky mail now goes through Yahoo, who do not offer support.

So I set her up on my Plusnet account, in accordance with the instructions on their site, but at the end it asks for her Sky password. Stalemate.

I phoned Plusnet support again and was told it would be necessary to cancel the Sky account on Thunderbird, but as they do not support TB, could not tell me how to do so.

Unless somebody here knows how to cancel the Sky mail without knowing user name or password, it looks as though she’ll have to make do with the inconvenience of web mail.

I use Windows 10 Pro and Tbird ver. 68.1.0 (64-bit). Help> About Tbird says I'm up to date yet every morning I get a small window that asks me if I would like to update Tbird. Why is this if I'm up-to-date? Second, I tried the update and the update opened as a new install w/o incorporating anything such as my existing sent messages, trash, contacts and most importantly my local folders. How best to handle this if in fact it really is a update?

Thanks.

I've followed the troubleshooting for installing Thunderbird for Mac (both 68.3.1 and 72.0b3), but I still can't get it to access my 2 GMail accounts in Mac OS 10.11 (El Capitan)?? Ironically, Thunderbird 3.1.11 works fine on an older Mac OS 10.4.11 (Tiger), but just too slowly for me....??

I've tried both auto-configure, and manually configuring the accounts, but I keep getting an error saying it can't get to the gmail server?? I've also tried No Authentication, but it still won't go through....??

I think it really should be a lot easier to configure than this--can anybody help fix this??


Thanks! --Jackie

Thunderbird 78 fails to activate POP3 mail account

My old mail account is POP3 only. Incoming, POP3, mail.tpg.com.au, 110, STARTTLS, Normal Password Outgoing SMTP, smtp.tpg.com.au, 587, STARTTLS, Normal Password After many attempts Thunderbird 78 failed to add this new account.

After removing ver.78 an old ver.68 was installed and the new account was added without any problems on the first try using the settings shown above.

Does this indicate that Thunderbird v.78 is no longer compatible as a POP3 client or is this a serious bug?

Worm or virus caused me to have to change my user profile in Windows 7. I have everything back looking more or less like it did before this disaster on my computer and I am once again able to get into Internet Explorer but when I go to my Thunderbird email, it is as if I have never used it before and it wants me to set it all back up again. All contacts are gone and all my old emails etc. How can I proceed to try to fix this problem?

I used to use Thunderbird exclusively. When I got a new computer, I was unable to get Thunderbird to work properly (don't remember why), so I started using Yahoo's webmail. Well, it appears to me that Yahoo is having problems on their end, and I want to retrieve and save my emails on their server and start using Thunderbird again. I need to know the precise steps that I must take in order to setup Thunderbird so that it can download my emails from Yahoo's webmail, INCLUDING the sub folders and the emails in them.

HELP!

After upgrading Thunderbird from v68 to v78 over the weekend, everything looked fine, but then I realized some emails display badly with Windows 10 running in Dark mode. Changing the Windows settings to display apps in Light mode doesn't help (and make other parts of Windows Light instead of Dark mode).

What I'm trying to find in about:config is a flag to tell Thunderbird to run in Light mode as I can't see many of my emails. I can highlight the body, but that's just a lame workaround.

First image show how the text is unreadable because Thunderbird only changed the background layout, but not the text; Image on the right I highlighted the whole email so I could read the text.

I saw other suggestions that either require meddling with some .css file quite heavily, or installing some add-on that doesn't fix the problem.

We just need a configuration flag to prevent Thunderbird from using the Windows Dark Mode (or more generic, one that doesn't follow the Windows Light or Dark mode on us).

Thank you developers.

After I have manually added Thunderbird 68 (Ubuntu 18.04.3, 64-bit) I realized there are only two extensions I can use: Lightning and Enigmail.

The official add-on site for Thunderbird doesn't contain compatibility option for 68. Just curious, shall I from now on to do without certain useful features (examples: remove duplicate messages, custom IMAP folders order).

It's very sad to see the addons site that knows nothing of version 68. As if no one is aware of its release.

After using Thunderbird for many years with a couple of email accounts, over the last few days I have been trying to add a new account.

Using the Auto Config option, the account appears to be set up OK, and I have been able to send a test email to another email address from the newly added account which is received OK, but when I close Thunderbird and reopen it, the newly added account has completely disappeared. I have tried setting up the new account manually, but with the same result.

I would add that I have added the new email in other clients without any problems.

I have not included any screenshots, because I don't think they would help. I do have them if it would help, but the first one shows that the newly added account is present, and the second screenshot (after restarting) Thunderbird shows that it isn't.

Any suggestions please.

I've tried the successful (for the other questioners) solutions offered in the articles that came up, but they didn't work. The one suggestion I couldn't try because the option didn't come up, was to press the "stop" button to keep TB from searching for the provider, then enter all the info manually BEFORE choosing the "Manual config" option. I couldn't do that because no "stop" button ever appeared.

In any case, I did try entering everything manually a number of times (including the IMAP and SMTP info), trying each and all of the "Authentication" options in that dropdown menu. But TB still insists that either my username (new email address) or password are invalid. I've done this many times now, carefully, and... same result no matter what, even after shutting TB down and starting fresh. By the way, TB does enter all of the IMAP and SMTP info correctly by itself, exactly as protonmail.com lays it out.

I don't want to start fresh by deleting my current Roadrunner account (which shows a POP server, if that makes any difference) and replacing it with the protonmail account, because then I'll lose all my folders and everything. I'd like to delete RR down the road, though.

Oh, and by the way I've followed Protonmail's instructions on how to set up Thunderbird.

Any ideas on this? I'm stymied. Thanks.

Thunderbird ver 68 is not compatible with Quickbooks - QuickBooks cannot find Thunderbird and does not list it as an option.

We use Thunderbird to send Invoices and other forms from QuickBooks. This works fine with versions 60.9.0 or 60.9.1. However the 68 series updates are NOT compatible with QuickBooks.

In QuickBooks, the email client is set under "Edit" "Preferences" and then "Send Forms". There should be a choice of Web Mail, Mozilla Thunderbird or QuickBooks E-mail. This works fine with the 60 series Thunderbird. But with the 68 series, QuickBooks cannot find Thunderbird and does not list it as an option.

I assume this is the case with all 68 versions of Thunderbird, although I have only tried with 68.1.1 and 68.4.1 (both failed). The latter happened when Thunderbird automatically updated to ver 68.4.1 and we suddenly lost compatibility.

Is there a plan to make the newer Thunderbird versions compatible with QuickBooks?

Until then, I'm hoping I can prevent Thunderbird from automatically updating. It is a pain when it happens because it's on a hosted server and we have to get a tech to uninstall Thunderbird and reinstall the older version - we don't have admin rights to do it ourselves.

Searching the web, there are others frustrated with Thunderbird suddenly losing compatibility with QuickBooks, although I don't know if they realize it is dependent upon the version of Thunderbird.

Hello guys, I'm a thunderbird fanatic and use it even at work managing 10+ accounts. Up to Thunderbird 68, all was super fine:

The massive profile with 60+ folder was well organized with a handful of incredible add-ons to: - color folders - customize color account background - manage folder sorting The workflow was smooth and very productive: the folder colored to my like, the new email received were visible at a glance in the related folder by simply browsing and detecting the different accent in the folder name, and so on.

I always loved updates and kept the auto update on... until yesterday when my 68 has been migrated automatically to 78 !

No one of the necessary add-ons works anymore! No one of those fantastic the developer is anymore interested in upgrading them (changes are too frequent, and need to invest too much time to upgrade them) The interface is to uniform, I cannot customize colors in the same efficient way.... If I want the same 60+ nested folder sorting, I need to rename all of them... When a folder receives a new email the accent color (sort of bold blue) is nearly same as that of a folder with unread email (bold black)... Oh my god, what a mess !

Since no add-ons are available to re arrange the profile like it was with Thunderbird 68, my only option is to roll-back to 68... and stay there until the necessary add-on will get back to 78 (if any).

Do you know how I can convert back my profile just upgraded to 78 back to 68 ???

Please Please Please, help me ! Pietro

For decades have been using Eudora with PORT 110 SERVER incoming.verizon.net

Verizon wants me to migrate to PORT 995 SERVER pop.verizon.net

But it won't work for either Eudora or TB 24.5.0 for Macintosh Eudora "fails authentication." TB just keeps "connecting" until it times out

This seems to be a well know problem with Verizon PORT 995 since circa 2009, per Google searching I've done.

BTW how do I activate verbose Task Progress and Error Messages for TB ?

Trying to delete my Saved Password in TB to make sure it was entered correctly, but cannot find out how. THE ANSWER FROM VARIOUS Q/A ON THIS SITE QUOTED BELOW IS WRONG:

THERE IS NO "Tools" choice and using those keys does NOTHING on a Macintosh. Version of TB is 24.5.0

ALSO there are two different "Tools" menus. They have different sub-options. One is the drop-down on the upper tool bar. The other is hidden in that mysterious symbol on the right, having 3 parallel horizontal lines.

>To see what you have saved in Thunderbird go to Tools-Options-Security->Passwords-Saved Passwords > >No Menu Bar with Tools? Press the alt key or F10 to make it appear.
