Message Body disappeared on 115.3.1 -- Can only see headers on 1 of 2 accounts. The other account is fine. POP & viridio is the email provider. Same problem happened in 102 but reversed (account 2 was fine, account 1 is not)

Hi,

My Thunderbird auto updated this afternoon to 115.3.1 . Now I am only seeing message headers. The body of the messages has disappeared. I'm not seeing anything on the bottom half of the screen, not even the message tool bar where you can delete, reply, etc..

Strangely -- the very same thing happened to me six months back with a secondary account, but my primary account was unaffected. So I was using the email interface with one email address (same domain name) which worked fine, while the secondary one only showed headers, and not the actual messages.

NOW-- after this download, the secondary email address account is showing both the headers and the messages, while my primary account is only showing the headers.

PLEASE HELP. Posted here six months ago for the previous time but never got any solution to the problem then. Just lived with it, as it was a secondary email address, but I will have to leave Thunderbird if I can't get the primary address showing actual messages soon.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Zach

Just was updated to Thunderbird Supernova. Now when I perform a search with the unified toolbar I get a list of results, but anytime I select one of the results a new tab is open with a Blank message.

I've re-indexed my emails as per : https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/rebuilding-global-database but that hasn't helped.

Anyone else having this problem and found a solution? The only work around I have so far is to use the Ctrl-Shift-F which works, but is a little slower.

Thanks, Robert

After the automatic upgrade to 115.2.2, I have lost access to all my folders, emails and calendar entries. But I can still see my addresses by using Tools/Address Book, and my filters by using Tools/Message Filters.

When I started Thunderbird for the first time on 115.2.2 I got to the usual message page which had all the tabs of the "open" emails I had when I last closed Thunderbird. But there was no sign of my folders and I couldn't get to any other messages (See first screenshot). I also had a second occurrence of Thunderbird running (I could have hit the icon a second time) that didn't show the tabs I had on the first screen. (No screen shot)

On a previous post here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1424153 it was suggested that I try Troubleshoot mode. That made no difference and at that time I had no folders showing, and just two tabs. I suspect after that I deleted the tabs.

Now I get a completely blank page in what is usually the message/folder area. Also the button for the address book above the message pane has now gone disappeared (Second screen shot), and I can find no way of accessing my previous (10years+ of messages).

It looks to me as if something is wrong in the profile.

Where do I go from here?

Thunderbird is completely unusable in the latest release. Attempting to set up a gmail based account results in

"Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead

Thunderbird detected a potential security threat and did not continue to 192.168.1.250. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details."

That's it. No options, no explanation, no KB articles, nothing. It just doesn't work. But why is Thunderbird trying to open a web connection to my local machine? If it's trying to talk to itself, why can't it? This is clearly an issue with trying to authenticate to Google as it happens after auth, but come on, this is a given requirement these days. If your app doesn't work out of the box (MacOS 13 btw), it may as well not exist for the OS, so this is very confusing.

Trying out older versions was a real comedy of failures as well. Too old and it's just a disaster. Too new and it just self updated to 115 again which doesn't work. So kinda seems like this is not a functional app anymore, at least not on Mac. Baffling. I guess it can only be used with legacy style email systems.

Hi Community, i wanted to ask wether it normal that Thunderbird 115 needs 60 seconds to load the interface? When it starts it shows my personalised theme and an empty space for a whole minute. (i measured it)

Directly after installation everything was fine. But now i have set up my acconts and rearranged some buttons. Is there maybe a problem with Exchange synchronisation on startup? Both of my accounts are provided by Exchange servers.

What is going on with the new TB client? I now have no access to my Sent mail. Nothing showing in Unified Sent mail and no more access to individual account sent folders. Major mistake upgrading. To elaborate, the Unified Send folder has never displayed sent messages and this is a known issue in bugzilla. But we have had the option to expand this folder to show the individual send folders in order to view sent messages. Now, there is no way to expand this folder, so the only way to view sent messages is to choose All Folders from Folders Mode. This defeats the purpose of Unified Folders. It's a step backwards. If there are no plans to address the Unified Send folder, then why was the option to expand it removed. Makes no sense.

Thunderbird recently upgraded (?) to Version 15 on my Windows 10 laptop. Since them, when I go to look at the "Trash" folder, I get the message: "Unable to open the summary file for Trash on username@gmail.com. Perhaps there was an error on disk, or the full path is too long." I was able to fix it temporarily by restarting Windows 10, but the error is back a few hours later.

TB version: 115.1.0 (64-bit) Windows 10 (corporate laptop)

Fresh laptop, fresh install of TB.

When trying to connect email@example.com (not really my email), TB correctly detects that my domain is hosted at Google, configures IMAP and SMTP for OAuth2, and pops up the window to authenticate.

Instead of an authentication prompt, I'm met with this error:

URL: https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/auth?response_type=code&client_id=<CHOMP>aq8lmia8j<CHOMP>.apps.googleusercontent.com&redirect_uri=http%3A%2F%2Flocalhost&scope=https%3A%2F%2Fmail.google.com%2F+https%3A%2F%2Fwww.googleapis.com%2Fauth%2Fcarddav+https%3A%2F%2Fwww.googleapis.com%2Fauth%2Fcalendar&login_hint=user%40example.com

Text: Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Thunderbird detected a potential security threat and did not continue to accounts.google.com because this website requires a secure connection.

Every year in this season Thunderbird ESR(!!!) switches to a new version. Every year the new version is a lot worse of previous. Every year it introduces a lot of cosmetical changes that tha majority of users haven't requested nor approve. You're incompetent developers. You're ignorant men.

This version has changed a setting: I don't want that Thunderbird update itself automatically but you think that you know what it's better for me! You are morons! Regards
