I'm having a really annoying problem where Calendar events, even tho they have reminders/notifications properly set up, just don't actually trigger these notifications when they're supposed to.

Are there any logs or debug settings or anything I can do to troubleshoot this further? All of the direct UI settings are definitely set up correctly. And there are other events for which notifications work fine, so it's not that notifications are broken altogether

Hello, I hope that this question is taken at face value. I Have tried working with the new UI since it was pushed and as of today I have had enough and I have reverted back to 102. there are a number of issues that have still not been addressed or fixed in 115 or 125 but the thing I keep finding increasingly infuriating is the UI. I understand UI is personal taste for some however for productivity changing the UI can be disastrous. it has been months since the release of 115. And the amount of time I have wasted because of the new UI is staggering. it is (to me and from what I am reading MANY others) extremely un-intuitive and tedious to use. I will not mention all the performance issues here as they are a separate issue. I would have liked to see an option to use the previous (read standard / tried and true) UI but since they did not, they appear to need an incentive to do such, so as the subject asks how much will it cost to add an option to revert the UI and how can we annotate that we would like it reverted as the donation page does not allow for notes or requests, and obviously the current leadership has a vision that is not in line with many users expectations.

I would like to reiterate this is not an attack on people who do like the new UI but a simple fact that many people appear to not like it and would like to be able to continue using the software both up to date and with a UI that actually makes sense to them since email clients have been virtually the same for over 2 decades now and that look and feel has become the de-facto standard in the industry for a reason.

TLDR: new UI is no longer intuitive to "industry standard" applications and I want to know how much it will cost to bring that back.

Tbird is close to perfect for me, so I regularly support it. One thing I do have occasional problems with concerns searching and using tags I hope I am wrong, but when I search for one or several emails I usually find them, but still have no idea of where they are located. The same applies to the very handy tags which I also gratefully use. I filter mails to appr 30 folders and archive them yearly, so actually finding an email can take some time. The path to the folder is not necessary - just the name of the folder would be enough to pinpoint it

For all three authentication method: errors are always the same --- unable to connect to your IMAP server.

I have been using Thunderbird for years. Always updated to the latest version. My current Thunderbird addresses are setup through Hostgator hosting and I've rarely had an issue. I recently set up a Zoho email address and added it to my Thunderbird platform so I can send and receive emails there. Problem is, when I send a test from one of my long time Thunderbird emails to the new email that goes through Zoho, it never shows up in my Thunderbird inbox. Never shows up in my Zoho inbox either. I can send from the new Zoho email to one of my established emails no problem using Thunderbird. But it doesn't work the other way around. I've checked everything I can think of--IMAP server settings, SMTP settings, added MX records, you name it. Not sure where the hang up is. Hopefully someone can help, thanks.

Hi,

I do like how I can change the toolbar buttons that Thunderbird shows when I open Thunderbird. That is, I other mouse button click on the toolbar and select "Customize." I have a panoply of buttons to choose from, to arrange as I wish on the toolbar.

But, when I am reading an email, the buttons I see on the top left of the email window are: "Reply, Forward, Archive, Junk, Delete, More" (in Settings, I have "'Open messages' set to 'in a new message window'."

I have not been able to find a similar "Customize" ability for the toolbar of the message window.

Is there such an ability?

The reason I ask... I'd like to have similar control over that toolbar to that I have on the other Thunderbird toolbars. But I cannot find the appropriate Customize option.

What am I missing?

thx.

I've recently upgraded Thunderbird to 78.14.0 and Nostalgy to 3.4.2. Nostalgy is an essential add-on for me, but it's not working the same as in earlier versions, and I hope someone can help with these problems. Or should I ask Alain Frisch, the author of the add-on? 1. Using S to move (or C to copy) an email to a selected folder works when the email is closed (but highlighted in the Inbox or wherever) but no longer works when the email is open. Earlier versions worked when the email is open, and it's a huge drawback for me that it doesn't work that way now. Am I missing something? 2. The command G (go to the specified folder) does not appear at all when invoked from within an email. When the email is closed G provides the expected list of folders, but focus does NOT move to the selected folder. Again, am I missing something?

Grateful for any help.

Posted this before, got no answers, not even a "no, there's no cure for that." Hoping for better this time.... My inbox suffers from disappearing email sometimes, and using the properties>repair cure works okay as far as I can tell (if someone emails me and doesn't ask about it later, how would I know?). But it has happened frequently enough, half a dozen times a month or more, that I do the repair by default pretty much every day just to be safe. That's easy but still a pain. Does nobody in MozillaWorld know a more permanent solution to free me from my constant missed mail paranoia? As I said, a reasonably authoritative "No, there isn't" is perfectly fine and much better than radio silence. Regards!

Thunderbird Version 115.10.1 on Windows 10

I wrote my own POP3 server and it largely seems to work apart from when Thunderbird tries to RETR the email messages at which point I get the error "Unable to write the email to the mailbox. Make sure the file system allows you write privileges, and you have enough disk space to copy the mailbox.".

If I drag a saved version of that same email that fails to be retrieved into Thunderbird , it can write it to the Inbox without issue. That means Thunderbird has permission to write to the Inbox file and so it is not a permission issue and there is enough space. I feel like it is more likely to be something I am doing wrong in my protocol implementation. For example, could I get this error if I misrepresented the octet count? Also I notice that even though my CAPA reply does not include UIDL, Thunderbird still seems to send that request and should get the response "-ERR Unknown command".

Output from my server showing what Thunderbird sent to it: CAPA USER person@mydomain.com PASS XXXXX STAT LIST UIDL RETR 1 QUIT

Any help is much appreciated, even if it is guidance on how I can debug it more thoroughly.

Thanks.

Hi,

About a month ago I accidentally activated the "Delete all but the most recent 2000 messages" option for one of my mail account in Thunderbird (15.10.1 (64-bit) on a MacBook Air). Luckily our local support were able to restore the affected folders. BUT - every time I opened the restored folders in Thunderbird, all the restored messages would disappear again. Correspondingly, the support team can see at this time large numbers of messages being deleted.

I've tried to delete the affected mail account from Thunderbird - didn't help. I've hidden my profile and started Thunderbird from scratch, set up the mail account again (so there should have been no leftover information from any previous instance of the account) - didn't help. I can see that whenever I open a folder for the first time, Thunderbird says "Compacting" - this is even though I have "Always ask before compacting" set. Even after I turn off automatic compacting for space saving >20MB, Thunderbird still compacts when it first sees a folder.

I have verified this behaviour by connecting to the same mail server using alpine - I see messages flagged for deletion in the restored folder; as soon as Thunderbird touches the folder, they disappear (even though no compacting should be happening and I should be prompted before it does, see above). Conversely, if I remove the "to delete" mark from the messages using alpine and then open a folder in Thunderbird, the messages are visible there.

From my understanding of what Thunderbird should be doing when compacting (or rather when not compacting), I would say the behaviours I've seen are rather significant bugs. But if I've misunderstood and there is some other way to stop Thunderbird from purging messages marked for deletion, I would be grateful for any advice.

Many thanks in advance for your help.
