Hi folks,

Forced to update (expected) and 102 ran like two flat tires and no spare whil eI had no issues with 91. MANY hours of searching got me reasonably successful in acceptable performance. But two problems, one which could easily be a bug:

1. I can find no way including in about:config to enable lazy tab loading. In other words, open a group but not load each tab until it is clicked on.

Where did that go?

2. This one is more unique. I have a desktop install of ESR and a portable ESR install on a thumb drive. For MANY years I backed up bookmarks on my desktop and restored them to FF on my thumb drive. Now, after I shut down the portable (which takes a very long time) there are multiple bookmarks. Html files that seem to merge on shutdown. Problem is, on the thumb drive this is not completed before FF shutdown and the processes closed. Results in damaged bookmark files and a crash EVERY time.

IF I drag the copy of FF ESR portable to my desktop and perform the same procedure, no problems. So somehow on a USB 3 thumb drive the process of merging bookmarks. Html files is too slow and will cause a crash consistently.

Any suggestions or should I file a bug report?

hi there,

so far i was lucky with tb 102 as for me it "just works" as before, _but_ it seems that "sort by ... threaded" is now the default setting for folder views which i personally hate.

as i have "millions" of folders I don't want to switch every single one of them to "unthreaded" manually.

unfortunately i didn't find a setting within the ui that allows to change the setting generally being effective for every folder.

so i tried that: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1377304 but it didn't work.

so i tried that: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1293255 but setting mailnews.default_view_flags from 1 to 0 didn't work.

do i need to change another setting as well? maybe add "ShowExpanded" as well? but i'didn't understand how to do this: "the second group of values can be added to one of the first group to combine effects"

maybe i also have to change the setting "mail.folder.views.version" - to which value?

is it actually possible with new tb 102 to generally change the new default view "sort by ... threaded" to "sort by ... unthreaded"?

help would be very much appreciated; thanks a lot! :)

I keep getting an error message (see uploaded image) that says Thunderbird can't update to the latest version and to download it manually. When I look at the About for Thunderbird, it says it already is the latest version (see uploaded image). So, I ignored that error message the first few times, but when it kept appearing, I downloaded and installed the update (after backing up the Profile folder in case of mishap; see uploaded image). It said it was installing and then the Install box disappeared (it did NOT say "You already have this version" and stop installing); I assumed it had finished (although, it never asked me to do anything, even though the error message implied I'd need help, and I couldn't see any difference in Thunderbird after it finished). Today, I got the error message AGAIN (even though I updated yesterday). What does it want me to do? Is it updated, or not? I'm confused.

I recently "upgraded" to 102.2.2 on my Windows10 pc. Ever since that event I have been unable to access my news groups via my news server. I tried changing passwords and this did not help. (It is very fiddly to change the password in Thunderbird software but when I finally managed it, it did not help). I tried a new news server and that did not help. When entering news server information by clicking on News Groups, using the tab marked Newsgroups (upper right of screen), when completing the name of the newsserver, the "next" button greys out on the last letter and I cannot proceed to insert port, password, etc to complete my account. It all worked fine for years before the change. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I tried reinstalling Thunderbird and it did not help. I tried deleting and reinstalling the server and that did not help. At wits end!

My Firefox has intermittently (but many times a day) been been slow loading, often simply refusing to load at all. Clicking a link to open in a new tab often opens the tab but the tab says "New Tab" with an oscillating dot on the left. After a few minutes the dot stops and nothing displays. Often clicking something in Google News the new tab says "Opening " and then the Google URL. The page sometimes displays after a couple of minutes but sometimes never does.

I've disabled all my plugins except LastPass, but that doesn't help. My IT Support company hasn't been able to help. I tweeted Firefox and they suggested I DM them. I've done that, even sending a couple of illustrative screen videos. But no oikne has ever responded to my Twitter DM.

Is there any way to talk to a live person and share my screen to get some help?

If not, I'll need to abandon Firefox as my default browser after many, many years. It's become a real productivity-killer.

Day 5 now:

My TB upgraded from 9x to 102.1.2 and it just kept getting worse - to the point that it is now unusable.

For starters, once the program upgraded from 9x to 102x, I kept getting pop up notices that an upgrade to 102 was available.

And for each upgrade, the "not responding" got worse and worse. Now, with 102.1.2 it is unresponsive the moment it is opened.

If I leave TB open and leave it alone, it eventually will download 100 messages in about an two hours - it download one, then go to not responding for a period, repeat.

Once they are downloaded, and I want to check a message, i.e., to read it, it will go to "not responding".

And to add insult to injury, when I highlight a string of messages to delete, it will delete one, stop responding, repeat, at a slightly faster pace than that of downloading.

Hi,

since updating Thunderbird (Fedora 36) to 102.2.1 (from thunderbird-91.12.0-1.fc36.x86_64), my personal calendar, hosted on Google Calendar, has started to have sync issues, with now being empty, without error message. Re-starting Thunderbird, synchronizing or hiding/re-showing the calendar (which helped in the past) doesn't help in any way.

I couldn't find a corresponding bugzilla and wanted to hear if it's a generic issue and how to proceed with debugging.

I've even removed the calendar re-add it, Thunderbird discovers my calendars properly, using gmail.com as location and my corporate e-mail as login.

During first synchronization, I get a bunch of

``` 10:21:43.099 Calendar: Invalid alarm for item: 1-0-5e276357f7219c00016e1645 (BEGIN:VALARM

) exception: [Exception... "Illegal value" nsresult: "0x80070057 (NS_ERROR_ILLEGAL_VALUE)" location: "JS frame :: resource:///modules/CalAlarm.jsm :: set icalComponent :: line 499" data: no] calItemBase.js:953 ```

And then:

``` 10:21:56.614 REPORThttps://apidata.googleusercontent.com/caldav/v2/myuser@acme.com/events/ [HTTP/2 403 Forbidden 53ms]

10:21:56.679 REPORThttps://apidata.googleusercontent.com/caldav/v2/myuser@acme.com/events/ [HTTP/2 403 Forbidden 55ms]

But then, other (group) calendars using the same account sync without issue.

Thanks, Eric

PS: on the bright side, Thunderbird uses a lot less CPU cycles. Very appreciated.

Recently there was an automatic update of Thunderbird to 102.2.2 (64-bits). Now I can't use the add-ons 'Category Manager', 'Provider for CalDAV & CardDAV' and 'TbSync' anymore because they are not compatible. They are for Thunderbird 91.0a1 - 99.0. I have a few questions regarding this matter: 1. Can I stop the automatic update of Thunderbird? How do I do that? 2. Can I downgrade Thunderbird from 102.2.2 to Thunderbird 99? A. I suppose I have to backup my profile folder. Download and install the version of Thunderbird 99 from https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/releases/99.0b2/win64/nl/ (and than the dutch .exe file) B. Import the backup of my profile folder But: I'm not sure about these procedure. Do I have to remove Thunderbird 102.2.2 first? Is this correct and can I use the add-ons again. Or do I miss something?

Thanks in advance.
