I have no idea if I need to keep all of them, or just one of them, as backup.

Which of the below do i need to keep, and which delete? Thanks.

After I have manually added Thunderbird 68 (Ubuntu 18.04.3, 64-bit) I realized there are only two extensions I can use: Lightning and Enigmail.

The official add-on site for Thunderbird doesn't contain compatibility option for 68. Just curious, shall I from now on to do without certain useful features (examples: remove duplicate messages, custom IMAP folders order).

It's very sad to see the addons site that knows nothing of version 68. As if no one is aware of its release.

There are several posts on this site regarding uninstalling Firefox. I am running current Firefox on current W10 64bit 1903 desktop PC using Ethernet with Spectrum as my ISP. I am having a couple of problems in Firefox that are not happening in current Chrome. 1. Page-not-found 2-8 times a day that resolve every time by simply clicking the "retry" (or something close to that) button. I reset my router to "factory" and installed most current router firmware but that did not help. Netgear Support has been unable to help. 2. In current LastPass addon, I have to re-login to LastPass every time I start Firefox - did not used to do that (a year ago), and in Chrome or Edge that does not happen. I have re-installed the LastPass add-on. I have upgraded Firefox many times and have cleared history/cache many times. So now I want to COMPLETELY remove Firefox, reboot, and then install Firefox from scratch. Can someone please point me to the web page that tells me how to properly remove all of Firefox so that I can re-download/install it from the beginning? I do not care about retaining my Firefox settings or other from my current Firefox install.

After using Thunderbird for many years with a couple of email accounts, over the last few days I have been trying to add a new account.

Using the Auto Config option, the account appears to be set up OK, and I have been able to send a test email to another email address from the newly added account which is received OK, but when I close Thunderbird and reopen it, the newly added account has completely disappeared. I have tried setting up the new account manually, but with the same result.

I would add that I have added the new email in other clients without any problems.

I have not included any screenshots, because I don't think they would help. I do have them if it would help, but the first one shows that the newly added account is present, and the second screenshot (after restarting) Thunderbird shows that it isn't.

Any suggestions please.

My Firefox won't update automatically anymore. Even if I check on Help --> About Firefox, it runs for a while and then it says it is updated. I have another FF installation on my work laptop, and it correctly picks up updates, this version on pc doesn't.

Please, I have already tried manually updating to the latest firefox a few weeks ago: I am now running version 42 here. Yet, today my work pc got updated to 43.0.2, and this one doesn't.

I would not like to completely remove FF in order not to loose my add-ons, could you please guide me to reinstate normal auto-update feature?

I've tried the successful (for the other questioners) solutions offered in the articles that came up, but they didn't work. The one suggestion I couldn't try because the option didn't come up, was to press the "stop" button to keep TB from searching for the provider, then enter all the info manually BEFORE choosing the "Manual config" option. I couldn't do that because no "stop" button ever appeared.

In any case, I did try entering everything manually a number of times (including the IMAP and SMTP info), trying each and all of the "Authentication" options in that dropdown menu. But TB still insists that either my username (new email address) or password are invalid. I've done this many times now, carefully, and... same result no matter what, even after shutting TB down and starting fresh. By the way, TB does enter all of the IMAP and SMTP info correctly by itself, exactly as protonmail.com lays it out.

I don't want to start fresh by deleting my current Roadrunner account (which shows a POP server, if that makes any difference) and replacing it with the protonmail account, because then I'll lose all my folders and everything. I'd like to delete RR down the road, though.

Oh, and by the way I've followed Protonmail's instructions on how to set up Thunderbird.

Any ideas on this? I'm stymied. Thanks.

I just noticed that I have an old (63.0.3) and a new (66.0.3) version of Firefox on my computer. I have no idea when or how this happened. Seems to work fine at the moment.

One is Mozilla Firefox 63.0.3 (x64 en-US) (170 MB). One is Mozilla Firefox 66.0.3 (x64 en-US) (175 MB). So my guess is this happened a while ago.

Both show up when I look at Apps & Features. Both are listed in Revo uninstaller.

There are two identical Firefox icons.

If I open one and check the version number in the program, it does show a different number depending on which icon I clicked to open the program. So there are definitely two versions.

They are sharing information. They open the same pages in several tabs that I had open when I closed the the program the last time.

I want to get rid of one but don't want to lose my many settings, bookmarks, etc. I don't want to risk everything by just Uninstalling the old version, unless I can be sure that it is safe.

Everything on my HP-PC is up to date.

Any ideas? Thanks!

We use Thunderbird to send Invoices and other forms from QuickBooks. This works fine with versions 60.9.0 or 60.9.1. However the 68 series updates are NOT compatible with QuickBooks.

In QuickBooks, the email client is set under "Edit" "Preferences" and then "Send Forms". There should be a choice of Web Mail, Mozilla Thunderbird or QuickBooks E-mail. This works fine with the 60 series Thunderbird. But with the 68 series, QuickBooks cannot find Thunderbird and does not list it as an option.

I assume this is the case with all 68 versions of Thunderbird, although I have only tried with 68.1.1 and 68.4.1 (both failed). The latter happened when Thunderbird automatically updated to ver 68.4.1 and we suddenly lost compatibility.

Is there a plan to make the newer Thunderbird versions compatible with QuickBooks?

Until then, I'm hoping I can prevent Thunderbird from automatically updating. It is a pain when it happens because it's on a hosted server and we have to get a tech to uninstall Thunderbird and reinstall the older version - we don't have admin rights to do it ourselves.

Searching the web, there are others frustrated with Thunderbird suddenly losing compatibility with QuickBooks, although I don't know if they realize it is dependent upon the version of Thunderbird.

Verizon wants me to migrate to PORT 995 SERVER pop.verizon.net

But it won't work for either Eudora or TB 24.5.0 for Macintosh Eudora "fails authentication." TB just keeps "connecting" until it times out

This seems to be a well know problem with Verizon PORT 995 since circa 2009, per Google searching I've done.

BTW how do I activate verbose Task Progress and Error Messages for TB ?

Trying to delete my Saved Password in TB to make sure it was entered correctly, but cannot find out how. THE ANSWER FROM VARIOUS Q/A ON THIS SITE QUOTED BELOW IS WRONG:

THERE IS NO "Tools" choice and using those keys does NOTHING on a Macintosh. Version of TB is 24.5.0

ALSO there are two different "Tools" menus. They have different sub-options. One is the drop-down on the upper tool bar. The other is hidden in that mysterious symbol on the right, having 3 parallel horizontal lines.

Long time user (15-20 yrs?), I have been avoiding the "next" upgrade for several years for various reasons (hate change, fave add-ons go away, hate change, not broke-don't fix, hate change...). But I am now running into a few websites that won't permit this browser, so it may be time to move on. With heavy adblocking and tracker-blocking and my benign web browsing habits, I've not been concerned about security (never had a virus in 20 years - knock wood). It's just full functionality and slowness at this point. At this point, I see even my Classic Theme Restorer is no longer available, so I'll just have to bite the bullet on aesthetics and deal with a modern browser. However, a couple of things are unclear:

1. does 20 years of bookmark history (and remembered history) affect memory footprint. I only refer to existing bookmarks occasionally these days and may consider a full purge. Partial purge would probably be too time-consuming. Maybe even a full profile purge might be worthwhile for a true clean slate. Maybe FF has come a long way and old extensions and settings won't be necessary. I also have several about: settings that I may (or may not?) miss.

2. Are automatic updates unavoidable in newer versions? I read about "manual" but it sounded temporary.

3. The permissions on many potential add-ons I've looked at are quite unnerving... e.g many of them require full access to ALL my data (usernames and passwords!!!) and I know the function has no need for such. Who has time to investigate these fully for safety? Is there any anti-malware vetting required for add-ons to be available?

4. I know newer is generally faster, but FF has a history of growing and slowing down after upgrades. My hardware isn't getting any newer (although its more than ample for my current needs), but software tends to be developed on latest and greatest hardware. How does latest FF compare to circa V41 in memory usage?


In any case, I thought I would give the latest vesion a whirl on my old Vista laptop (which is currently at V43) and check it out before plunging in on my W7 work PC or home PC. Any answers or insight into such a big jump are much appreciated.

i think dumping it all into one single profile would be fine for me at this point.

After upgrading Thunderbird from v68 to v78 over the weekend, everything looked fine, but then I realized some emails display badly with Windows 10 running in Dark mode. Changing the Windows settings to display apps in Light mode doesn't help (and make other parts of Windows Light instead of Dark mode).

What I'm trying to find in about:config is a flag to tell Thunderbird to run in Light mode as I can't see many of my emails. I can highlight the body, but that's just a lame workaround.

First image show how the text is unreadable because Thunderbird only changed the background layout, but not the text; Image on the right I highlighted the whole email so I could read the text.

I saw other suggestions that either require meddling with some .css file quite heavily, or installing some add-on that doesn't fix the problem.

We just need a configuration flag to prevent Thunderbird from using the Windows Dark Mode (or more generic, one that doesn't follow the Windows Light or Dark mode on us).

Thank you developers.
