Hi,

I cannot download & installed any add-ons or themes. After clicking the install button, I always get a red bar saying "Download failed. Please check your connection.". This happens on Firefox, Firefox beta and Firefox nightly.

I did some googling and found similar posts from a few years ago. These seem to suggest I don't have the correct certificate used to verify extension signatures:

I checked my certificates and I don't have anything from "Mozilla Corporation - signingca1.addons.mozilla.org" (there's a screenshot of this cert in the first forum link above), so I think this is indeed the issue? I've attached a screenshot of my cert list where the Mozilla cert should be.

Please note I am on an M3 Pro macbook pro. It's a work laptop and I thought maybe our network settings were interfering with things, but my previous work laptop (Intel) could install add-ons just fine.

Would appreciate some help!

P.S. I found a workaround where I copied over all extension JSON and XPI files from my old laptop. So I am using my previous extensions just fine but still cannot download any new ones. Also I don't have access to my old laptop anymore so can't copy over any new ones.

Hello, I've been using Thunderbird since pretty much ever for my work place email account. Since a couple of years (indeed since my job position changed resulting in significant increase of email frequency; currently I have few thousand emails in the Inbox, and much more in separate folders) I'm observing an unfortunate and I should say also a very serious problems with it.

From time to time some mail in the Inbox gets overwritten by the content of another email (also in the Inbox), leaving the subject, recepient, sender etc. intact. So far I was not able to reproduce the circumstances under which this happens. It is happening currently on my Lenovo laptop, 11th Gen i7, 16GB of memory, running Windows 11 Pro, and has happened before on a Mac AirBook machine (bought two years ago, and this was actually the reason to change the mailer app on Mac, and one of the reasons I went back to Windows machine).

I don't think I need to mention how serious this problem may be (well, I guess it depends on the importance of the email that gets overwritten) and I really hope you may be able to suggest a cure.

Best regards, Bostjan

Hiya

I have 2 out of 5 mail accounts were the trash-folders are less than 30 Mb according to Thunderbird - [right mouse click] on the folders & pick [properties]

BUT on the disk inside the [ImapMail] folder I have files named [Trash] that for the 2 accounts have a combined total size of 600 Mb ! :(

And YES !!! I let Thunderbird compact per auto ALL the time (when it will save = 10 Mb in total)


So either; - I've COMPLETELY misunderstood 'something' - or there's something to look into for Mozilla ? :)

THANKS in advance for your time, help & reply ! :) Best Regards Peter Valentin

I've had long conversations with Apple regarding the setup of iCloud email accounts on Thunderbird. The process must include the generation of an App Specific Password using Apples web page :

https://appleid.apple.com/account/manage

This generates a password in the form aaaa-bbbb-cccc-dddd which is a different password to be used only with one Windows APP. Apple insists this is working with their standard mail server settings preset by all the email client providers. I've been advised to refer to Mozilla Thunderbird and Apple are insistent they can do no more than mail me links to all the instructions I've already read in detail several times. However, I believe the problem lies with Apple but they don't yet know it. I've used separate ASP generated passwords and tried to install an iCloud email on several different email clients: Thunderbird, Mailbird, Outlook and Postbox. All these confirm that the settings seem to be valid but nonetheless the email account fails to load with error messages suggesting the configuration or password (i.e. the ASP) is wrong. The common factor is Apple not Thunderbird. I suggest anyone flummoxed by this awaits the acceptance of this problem by Apple.

All the data is still local, in my profile and I can see a partial preview of the messages when I run a search in TB, but double-clicking on one of those only returns a blank page. What's the best way to read those ghost messages ? Thank you for your help,

Hi, I use windows hibernate a lot. One vulnerability of hibernate is that the contents of RAM get written to the hard drive in unencrypted form in a file called hiberfil.sys. This means that any encryption keys in RAM used to access encypted files will be written to hiberfil.sys and can be extracted if a malicious party has physical access to the drive.

Thus, the question:

Does Firefox store encryption keys, passwords, or log in details in RAM at any time while in use?

Thanks.

Hello all I just started my thunderbird after years of outlook. And I have donated money I hope this helps to keep this alive. With recent 2FA changes I have had to move here. it is years of old emails and for now I am getting them to review later.

But everyone seems nice here.

When I am downloading I notice limits on number of messages in one mailbox in Thunderbird. One mailbox is everything inside one email username right?

Sometimes it stops at 10, 000 Is the limit based on thunderbird or the email server I am getting my emails from ???

Thank you for anticipated help!
