Dear all,

I have tried setting up Gmail within Thunderbird 78.x.y. After entering credentials, and going again through login to the Gmail popup window I reach a state which is shown in the attached image.

Google security options: 2 factor off, less secure apps on, Captcha refreshed but nothing helps.

Many thanks for the help.

Best, Bogdan

Been using TB for donkey's years, no problems. Just recently, I get a pop-up message in the TB window saying it can't download the latest version, and giving me a link to download it manually.

Putting aside the question of why it can't download automatically (any ideas anyone?), why does it even do this when I'm on the latest version? I can see the version in Help -> About, and this is the same version as the latest downloader.

Anyone any ideas? I get this pop-up several times a day, and it's annoying. Thanks

I Am on desktop:

i5 9600KF (high performance mode) 16GB 3200mhz ram NVME... Windows 10 Pro x64 Firefox last stable

When I open Firefox tabs aren't loaded all at the same time, but they are suspended. So after that: when I switch between 6 tabs quickly - they start to open at the same time. And CPU usage skyrockets to 100% LOL! Given I Am on high end PC - this is joke! I was using chrome and had hundreds of tabs and Chrome doesn't even suspend them by default. They open all at the same time I think!

So there is something wrong! I tried troubleshooting mode and it was the same problem!

Thanks for help!

The last update, 91.2.0, did not install correctly, and I could not send emails. After Uninstalling Thunderbird and reinstalling, Uninstalling McAfee, and resetting the Windows Defender, I still can not send emails. The latest update is installed. I can receive emails. I really don't want to switch to a different email "bundler," but I have spent 2 days, enlisted an IT professional and am at my wits end.

Do you have any suggestions?

I have three emails accounts. Three work and one doesn't. I click on the inbox in the account that does not work and Thunderbird goes into endless loop. No error messages. No received messages. I use another computer and I get messages. I looked at the saved password file and the working emails accounts have a imap entry and a matching SMTP entry. The non working account does mot have a imap entry. There seems to be no way to enter the imap entry. I have removed the password for the bad account, but the program never get far enough to ask for a password. The program worked for years now it doesn't.

Ever since automatically upgrading to 91.2.0 when I save an email Thunderbird adds a lengthy string of data to the end of the filename which causes me great difficulty. Here is an example from an email from the NYTimes: "Today's Headlines Key to Biden’s Climate Agenda Likely to Be Cut Because of Manchin Opposition" is the filename. Thunderbird automatically adds the following to it. " - The New York Times (nytdirect@nytimes.com) - 2021-10-16 0101"

This information lengthens the filename which I have to delete because it messes up my archive where I save numerous emails. Therefore I have to delete it every time I save an email (60 or more times every day) and interferes with any search I conduct of those saved emails.

I have explored all the options under Tools and Help to no avail. Can you please tell me how I can get rid of this annoyance. It is causing me lost time in my daily work creating an archive of articles. I've been working on this archive for nearly 18 years and this problem is causing me a great deal of grief and lost work time. Thank you.

Hello. I foolishly today, a few hours ago, bought and installed mozilla vpn (1yr subscription). Once this was installed, it somehow screwed up my whole computer setup, and the consequences keep getting worse. I have spent several hours now trying to solve the accumulating issues, and it is getting worse. Of course, I uninstalled mozilla vpn, but that did not help. For example, my thunderbird client was no longer able to download my gmail mail, even though i was using the same password as was working ok on gmail. I put the question to the internet, and the recommendation was to uninstall thunderbird and install it again. which i foolishly did. the new thunderbird installation was balnk - all my e-mail accounts and data were no longer there! moreover, when I try to restart the accounts, thunderbird again rejects perfectly good passwords! This is a massive tragedy for me. please tell me what to do. can i recover my data?

The new release of Thunderbird strains and strains and strains when an email is selected which has large attached files. I cannot scroll the email, I cannot switch away from the email, until Thunderbird completes its processing, whatever it is doing. These emails were not a problem until I updated to version 91.

My version of Thunderbird was upgraded to Version 91 on 9-29-2021 or9-30-2021. When I started my computer on 9-30 all of my calendar information was gone. I tried to input my daily schedule and that went fine. I then restarted Thunderbird to see if that would work all the information I had just input was gone.

The upgrade was automatic per your recommendation but now all of my calendar records are gone. Do you have any suggestions as to how I might be able to restore them? Also the first day of the upgrade, 9-30, the "today's pane" was there but on 10-1 it was not.

thanks for any help

Steps to reproduce:

Changed settings: Sort by --> threaded Layout --> messenger pane off Start at --> Inbox (which is gmail)

Actual results:

Next restart of TB returns those settings to their default. Changes retained only until restart, then back to defaults. TB 91.2.0 Windows 10 Pro on HP laptop Have used TB for many years. Did not realize auto-update was on (didn't used to be on). Have now turned it off again. This change to updates was retained.

Expected results:

Should have retained those changes on restart.

Using the last release of Thunderbird (version 91.2.0) for a Mac running Big Sur (OS version 11.6) when applying the "Format> Page colors and background", the Thunderbird app will always crash, Then you have to force quit the app to close it and all entries are lost for that email. This occurs every time this feature is applied. The latest release appears to be very unstable.

Hello.

Current Settings: Enhanced Tracking Protection-Standard Without the Free Adblock installed.

Goal: Minimize tracking and pop-up ads from appearing during my browser session:

Please answer each question separately:

Q1. Is the Standard option sufficient or should it be set to strict?

Answer:

Q2a. Does the Standard option OR the Strict option provide the features of an ad-block or does the free Adblock needs to be installed as well in order to receive full protection?

b. When I was about to install the Free Adblock, a warning came up asking me if it was the best adblocker and confirming that the extension would have permission to access my data from all websites, extend developer tools to access my data in open tabs, display notifications to me, access my browser tabs, and access browser activity during navigation/

Do I really want to install Adblock knowing all of the above details?

All PCs are Windows 10 (64) Home or Pro

After FireFox updated to ver 93.0 (64 bit) the CenturyLink Webmail page fails to load properly (all I get is a blank screen). I know this is because of version 93.0 because the last PC I checked it on (My Windows 10 (64) laptop) still had FireFox 92.0.xx loaded and the webpage loaded fine, then the browser updated and the webmail page failed to load properly. The CenturyLink Webmail Page loads fine on Google Chrome and on Microsoft Edge.

Troubleshooting: In addition to the usual clearing browser data I even tried resetting FireFox on one of my PCs. It didn't help.

Centurylink tech support says there is nothing wrong with their Webmail and to use another browser.

I've attached a screen capture of what I see.
