I have been using Thunderbird email for numerous years.

At the end of June (2021) I started a summer-long vacation in another state, and prepared a laptop (Win 10) computer for the trip (with Thunderbird installed, of course.

Around July 5th I tried to peruse my email using Thunderbird on the laptop and was unsuccessful.... Zoho kept rejecting my email account password(s).... "login to server imap.zoho.com with username xxxx@xxxxx.com failed" (see attached)

I had the same issue with my account at gmail.com (Google mail) using Thunderbird. I have no other email accounts.

I assumed I had made some sort of mistake in the Thunderbird account settings on the laptop, but I had no way to compare the settings to my home computer (nobody there at my home and I was away on an extended trip)

Zoho was unable to assist me with Thunderbird. I assumed I did something wrong when I configured Thunderbird on the laptop and tried numerous parameter alterations without success.

I am able to access my email accounts at Zoho when I go to zoho.com directly, but compared to Thunderbird their interface is unwieldy and doesn't allow much screen space for email content (and, of course, I'm not able to save read emails to my Thunderbird local accounts).

I just returned from my extended trip and find that I now have the same issues on my home desktop computer, which was working fine when I left the last week of June. It (Thunderbird on my home desktop computer) also, rejects logins to my email accounts at Zoho and at Googlemail. Strangely, I can read new emails in the Thunderbird email accounts, but I am unable to reply to them or forward them.

The only logical explanation I can come up with is that an automatic update caused these issues. In fact, my home computer has a Thunderbird icon on the desktop that I'm not certain was there before (I keep most of my important program icons in program category folders on my desktop and in my quick-access bar at the bottom of my Win 10 desktop screen... so if an icon shows up on my desktop, I assume it is because of a product update). I am currently at Thunderbird 78.14.0 (64-bit).

I am trying to think of ways I can verify that an automatic update caused the issue.

I am able to log in to my email accounts by directly using zoho.com or google.com, but much prefer Thunderbird. I am hoping for suggestions as to why neither of my Thunderbird copies (desktop and laptop) are able to log in to receive email.

Thoughts and suggestions????

(Firefox 94.0; Fedora 34; Gnome)

When I go to some video websites and click the play button, I see the little circular thing in the image are spinning, indicating that the video is loading. But it never stops and it never plays. Also, the pause button does not have any effect; the loading indicator keeps spinning. Example website: "https://proclassictv.com/" (both with "The Rifleman" and "My Favorite Martian" episodes. I've tried this on a few of the videos available there. Same result. I've tried this with add-ons enabled and with add-ons disabled (current session). I've seen this in a few other websites also. I don't know if the problem is my system, Firefox, or the host website.

I am able to view youtube videos with no problems.

How do I get the videos to play?

Thank-you.

Hello! Something in my Firefox installation seems to be making several Google network (google.com / forcesafesearch.google.com / www.youtube-nocookie.com / m.youtube.com, and a couple of others) calls shortly after launch. I have a DNS sinkhole, so that is how I can see.

I have a few reputable extensions (or should be, from EFF, Firefox itself, or Ublock Origin), but it also happens in safe mode. I went through a good chunk of this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections and still the calls occur

I am on Windows 10, with FF v93.

Thanks very much!

bold textI have really become disillusioned with this email program, which I have used for many years on my Windows computers.

I have 5 email addresses; 3 of those were rendered inaccessible with the June update to Thunderbird; only the first and last addresses work now (or did, until today's update: 91.3.2, see below). Four email identities are handled by Zoho.com, the 5th is a gmail account. If I shift the order of the email accounts in Thunderbird, again only the first and last accounts are able to log into email, the others are rejected as having incorrect passwords.

The correct passwords are stored in Thunderbird, they are again rejected when re-entering them as requested by Thunderbird.

I have been screwing around with this issue for 5 months and have not been able to resolve it. I also have 2 laptops with Thunderbird installed. Regrettably all 3 computers were set for automatic updates to Thunderbird, and all have had the same issue since June, despite no changes/alterations on my part.

Today I updated to the latest release (91.3.2) on my desktop computer. I don't recognize the initial user screen now. Thunderbird only displays one of my email accounts, dunno what happened to the other 4 which are still in Account Settings. Also, my access to local folders is gone with this new release (or at least not obvious... all accounts and local folders used to appear on the left column).

I have no idea of how to revert to earlier Thunderbird releases, and my research has not revealed that secret.

Thunderbird has gone downhill in a hurry these past 5 months, and I haven't found a way to fix it. I would switch to another email product except that my Thunderbird local folders of saved emails would be gone forever (actually, this latest update may have rendered them inaccessible, so that issue may be moot).

Aaarrgghh, why are these people screwing up a perfectly good product??? At the very least, they could provide a way to save the prior version of the users' Thunderbird (and the users settings/preferences) before destroying it, maybe even make that save/restore a mandatory part of the update.

Just for grins I clicked on "Events and Tasks/Export" a moment ago... nothing happened.

Seems Google is forcing everyone to switch to 2 step verification from Nov 9. This is causing me a major headache. I am now really confused!!! I have several google accounts linked to Thunderbird - what does this mean for me? What -if anything - will I have to change in Thunderbird? Will I have to do this every time I check my email? I have one of the accounts on my mobile - others are linked to different mobile numbers. I really don't want to download the google app or associate some of them with mobile numbers....

(Not as dodgy as that sounds....google contacts has a tendency to share contacts between devices/accounts. I now use the Firefox addon multi-account containers before it was a nightmare!).

I don't want people's email addresses in my phone contacts -so I have a gmail account just to back up my phone contacts.  Also the small charity I work for has a shared gmail account and  for the same reason a mobile phone backup account with no email ...as the phone is shared and not password protected- then I have a couple of other email addresses for the charity - for things that are private or for special events eg event registrations -otherwise our inbox gets clogged -even with filters in place!  )     

I am now actively looking for a web based alternative to Gmail (not outlook/.hotmail -I already have those which forward to a single gmail) ...and trying to work out how the 2step verification is going to work for our shared gmail account (s). I'm really not happy about this!!!

This is probably a FAQ, although I can find no mention of the question using the search facility, so here goes...

I am just starting to use Thunderbird for my Usenet groups, having finally given up on Forte Agent. I don't seem to be able to find a way to define a filter to run across all subscribed groups - if I define it to operate on the news server (tweaknews) then it doesn't work on ANY of the groups. Surely I'm not expected to define the same filter for every single group, individually? What am I missing?

Thanks for any assistance.

My situation is that I'm receiving around 50-100 spam a day to different accounts. And there's the false classification problem on top of it.

So I'd like to set up rules that weeds out the spam folder - to some extent. Eg anything sent form a .ru address (plenty of those) can be deleted immediately. And I do NOT want to keep these in the trash either.

I know it's not directly possible (hello missing feature) but would the retention rules just maybe delete the if these were sorted into another (say 'russianJunk') folder? Or is the retention policy just another 'move' type operation (i.e. move to trash, not delete)?

Thanks

Apologies if this has already been answered but i honestly don't know what terms to search for to find the correct answer. Problem: My gmail account receives email from a BT Internet account. When I reply the owner of the BT Internet account doesn't receive my email so I have to remember to change the "to:" address to one of their other email accounts. Sometimes I forget and a few days later wonder why they haven't replied. Can I automate this? (I'm not going to try and resolve the source of the problem which is probably the BT Internet account because the user is elderly and I'm remote from them). I did try to set up a message filter ("After Sending" ticked, "To" contains abc@btinternet.com, "Forward Message to" abc@otherdomain.com) but it only works when run manually and even then it forwards everything that matches in my sent folder. I don't really want to forward the message, I want to change the "to:" address. Is what I'm asking possible (assuming I've described it in sufficient detail!). Many thanks for your help.

I have TB on my Windows 7 computer. It is 32-bit and the version number is 91.3.2. I use several email addresses in TB and have had no problems downloading or writing emails using any of the addresses. Two of those addresses are gmail addresses.

I installed TB on my new Windows 10 computer. I migrated my Thunderbird folder from the Windows 7 computer to the Windows 10 computer. I can see all my email associated with each email address.

When I try to download new mail from my two gmail accounts, I get the error shown in the attached jpg. I get a similar error if I try to send an e-mail from those 2 gmail accounts.

I've compared the setting in TB on both computers for the 2 gmail accounts. As far as I can tell, Both computers show the same settings. Both TB installations (old and new computers) are versions 91.3.2. The only difference I see is TB on the old computer is 32-bit and on the new computer it is 64-bit. What do I need to do so I can download and send email using my gmail accounts in TB on my new computer?

I was thinking maybe if I use 32-bit TB on my new computer my problem would go away. I thought I would ask here before I try that.
