Hello, My Thunderbird 32bit installation upon Microsoft 10 64bit installation just upgraded itself to 7.2.2 and produced a severe performance problem after initial startup. The response to attempts to navigate through the folders is very slow. The Microsoft Task Manager shows that Thunderbird is constantly busy 15-20% Cpu usage and flashes of 'Not responding' although the program has nothing to download.

There 4 accounts configured (3 imap and one pop3) and there are lots of folders with stored emails. There is one Lightening calendar configured.

The performance issue continues for about 10 minutes and then disappears so the system becomes as responsive as it was before the upgrade i.e. instantaneous.

I cannot tell you what release I was on before the upgrade. Any suggestions Patrick

Every time I try to log into my eBay account, I get the following message, "Gah. Your tab just crashed." This has been happening on the last several versions of Firefox, going back at least six months. I have no problem logging in when using Chrome or Safari, but overall I don't like either of those browsers nearly as much as Firefox. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help me figure out why this is happening and let me know how it can be fixed!

Starting 24 hours ago, Firefox loads a blank Facebook page. Whether using my homepage bookmark or simply entering http://www.facebook.com, all I get is a blank page.

I've tried: Starting Firefox in safe mode, Clearing cache and cookies, Deleting/reinstalling Firefox, Restarting my router.

Firefox opens all other websites without issue. Chrome opens Facebook as expected. I'm using Firefox 81.0.2 (64-bit) Windows 10 Home 64-bit Version: 18363.1139

I've tried reading through the over 2,000 "suggested" help topics related to Facebook loading a blank page, but none of the ones I read address this issue. What am I missing?

Thank you in advance, Don

I followed yahoo's authentication advice in thunderbird. Once completed one of my two thunderbird folders disappeared. What a disservice by yahoo!!!

I have all the thunderbird data backed up. But how can I get it back into thunderbird so that it's working? Can anyone help me out with that, please?

I'm not sure but I think I had POP previously and not IMAP but I'm not sure. HOW can I find that out?

When I go into thunderbird's 'troubleshooting information' page and scroll down to the 'Mail and News Accounts' section it lists two accounts:

'account1' named '(none) 'Local Folders' using a 'Normal password' 'account3' named '(imap) imap.mail.yahoo.com:993' using 'Oauth2' authentication

Obviously the second account is the one that got activated after the yahoo authentication. It's the default account. But the first one is probably what I had prior.

I looked at the folders on my computer. There is a pop.mail.yahoo.com folder which seems to contain the missing folder/data right up to the date when I did the yahoo authentication that made it all disappear in thunderbird.

Does anyone know what I need to do next? How exactly, step by step (because I don't want to screw up more stuff), do I get that data back into my thunderbird account?

Thank you!

Today I see that FB fails to load my profile photo album. I get a spinning circle, description and comments section to the right is blank (or photo loads but no description). I check my connection activity, it's basically at 10 kbps. I run some speed tests, no problem.

So I go to MS Edge, everything on FB loads in an instant.

So the problem is FF. And that's on top of the 50%-100% of CPU that every click on FB produces. I compared it with Edge, 5%-50% of CPU.

So before I give up on FF and switch to Edge, can someone recommend another version of FF that is relatively lightweight for a low spec laptop? The latest version is a no go, as I understand it needs at least 8-16 GB of memory (!).

Thank you.

The website works on my phone browser, so it's clearly this laptop or my internet dongle.

It's also happening across all browsers. I don't have VPN or antivirus software on except Microsoft Essentials. I've tried removing real time protection on that but it didn't work. I tried creating a new profile of Firefox, nothing. I tried going to about:config page and setting security.ssl.enable_ocsp_stapling to false, nothing so set it back to true I've gone to task manager to see whether there is a task don't recognise so I can stop it, nothing.

I was running 68.12.1 when this problem started whereby the application runs slowly and freezes frequently with a 'not responding' banner. This is accompanied by a message that says downloading 1 in All Mail. When in this mode other applications appear to either freeze or run slow. This may last for up to 5 minutes and occasionally comes up with the message box inviting me to stop the programme. I have reduced the size of the All Mail folder and the Inbox has only about 12 messages in it. The folders have all been compacted regularly. I decided to opt for the update and we are now running 78.3.3 32bit. I have disbled Windows search and performed a clean reboot - neither makes any difference even with all startup items disabled. OS is Windows 10 Home V1909 OS Build 18363. I don't like relying on Gmail but I might have to as Thunderbird is close to unusable. Any bright ideas?

10/20/20

I clicked on the update button last night - running 81.0, and the update was for 81.0.2. When I went to open the browser all that I got was a line at the top - FF would not open. I backed up the profile, and did a clean install. When I finally got the backed up profile installed, it opened properly once and everything was there. When I opened it again, no book marks, and none of the buttons worked. FF didn't close properly, and I had to use Task Manager to shut down.

I ended up downloading the beta version, and it's worked just fine. The original profile works, so all bookmarks are there.

I see that FF released 82.0 this morning. Is it safe to try to install it, or is the beta version that I installed last night really 82, just hours before it was officially released?

I have always had challenges getting the recommended CPANEL server settings to work in Thunderbird. However, I managed to have them working fine until this week, after we had an issue with malware on our site, which was removed. We have all also had to completely reset our PCs due to this virus.

Now, I had to use truly bizarre settings (compared to the recommendations) in order to get Thunderbird to work with my emails.

However, some of my team cannot get their OUTGOING mail to work at all, no matter what setting we have tried. We have exhausted our creativity, research, and troubleshooting with Godaddy.

Attached are: 1 the settings recommended in Godaddy CPANEL, 2 the incoming and outgoing settings I got to work for me.

Any thoughts?
