I migrated from Windows Live Mail to TB. As recommended, I installed Ver 31, transferred the files, email and contacts. It all seems to work, picks up and sends email. I understood that it was supposed to upgrade to the latest version. The Help menu shows that this (31) IS the latest version. When I manually upgrade to 91, It will not stop asking me for the password, no matter how many times I enter it. I have checked that the server settings are all the same. What am I supposed to do here? Is there a fix for this? Dougal

I have been reading that many TBird users mistakenly upgraded to 91 via unauthorized 3rd parties contacting them — and that caused many horrific problems. Will that update be possible for version 78.14? If your authorized update will be made available to us using 78.14, when will that be? I have used TBird for many years and was very glad to hear that it is once again being supported. BTW, I did not even know it was being supported again until today when I did a search for that information.

We are running FF ESR 78.14.0. I see that ESR 91.1 is now out. I have seen this article on Firefox ESR release cycle, but not able to find out what the schedule is (ie overlap) for 78 and 91 releases. I am trying to do some upgrade planning. I expect 91.2 will auto upgrade and like to know how soon, otherwise I may need to manual update machines.

It would be nice if this page could be kept up to date for the relevant releases.

Driving the question is a specific issue with QuickBooks Payments not working in 78, which I am assuming has to do with something they consider obsolete security wise.

Hi community, I would appreciate your help. I have been a Thunderbird user and advocate for more than 10 years. A few week ago I purchases a shiny new Dell (Windows 7, 64-bit) similar to my old laptop, and have attempted to set it up completely for my personal work use. Everything was going smoothly until I downloaded and installed the latest version of Thunderbird (91.1.0). While setting up my email accounts (gmail and office365) I am getting a persistant error "Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password." For all mail accounts I have manually configured to exactly the same as my previous laptop, as below (for gmail).

Protocol: IMAP Hostname: imap.gmail.com Port: 993 Connection security: SSL/TLS Authentication method: OAuth2 Username: *@gmail.com

Outgoing server Hostname: smtp.gmail.com Port: 465 Connection security: SSL/TLS Authentication method: OAuth2 Username: *@gmail.com

I managed to get through the authentication process (boxes asking for password and giving Thunderbird permission) through gmail (and office365 when using another account) to allow access to my accounts more than a dozen times. And yet the same error code occurs ("Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password.") I have set Thunderbird to accept cookies. I have disable the low security app settings in gmail. I have allowed Thunderbird App in Window Defender security. I have more than triple checked my password and email details, and still nothing. When I click "Advance config" to force account set up nothing changes, then when I click again I get the error message "Incoming server already exists."

I have uninstalled Thunderbird 91, reinstalled an older versiosn, cleared previous profiles, etc etc, all to no avail.

I have attempted to read through this forum to find a solution or a work around, but nothing has helped to this point.

Finally, my older laptop running Thunderbird 78.14.0.(32-bit) on the same network continues to work perfectly, sending and receiving emails via gmail and office365 accounts presumably all with the same settings and authentications. Please tell me what I am missing!!!

Your help would be much appreciated. The Saint

I have over 200GB of emails under my profile folder. Been using TB for a long time. Tried to manually upgrade to 91.1.0 from 78.14.0. (I tried uninstall 78.x.x and install 91.x.x fresh as well and tried both 32-bit and 64-bit versions) Windows 10

After the upgrade, and I launch 91.x.x, TB UI does not show up and there are several processes running. I thought it is trying to perform some conversion and left the machine on for 6 hours, but still not showing up. When I uninstall 91.x.x and install 78.x.x back, I am able to see all of mails again (I need to use -- allow-downgrade option)

I also tried to delete all .msf files, but still the same issue with 91.x.x..

Any idea what I need to do to upgrade to 91.x.x?

I use Thunderbird 91.1.0 (64-bit) on Manjaro.

I want to connect to a GMail account on Thunderbird which has 2FA enabled. To do so, I created an application password on Google, and then configured everything correctly in Account Setup. When I click on "Done" after having entered my Full Name, my Email address and the Password (which is the application password freshly generated), a pop-up asking me to connect to Google appears.

However, I can't go further than the "email address or phone number" field. When I write the correct email address and press "Next", it goes back to the same field without any error message.

The picture shows in which pop-up I get stuck in. Sorry, it's in french.

Edit: I would like to add more details:

  • I had the same issue with Thunderbird on a updated Ubuntu machine recently (sorry, I do not know the version).
  • I tried to replace the "Password" by my account's password (instead of the generated application password) but it didn't work either.

Does the "Update Available" popup screen shown in the uploaded image come from Firefox? It keeps coming back it seems every time I open Firefox. I clicked "Update" a few times, but Firefox never got updated, as far as I can tell. I tried turning off NordVPN but that does not allow an update to occur. Now I just click "Dismiss" if I need to see what's behind the popup. You have to click either "Update" or Dismiss" to get it to go away. There is no "x" at the upper right on the popup screen, which would allow you to close the screen without clicking either "Update" or "Dismiss". I worry that by clicking on either I am downloading some malware. William F Briel
