I have Thunderbird installed on 2 different machines. Keeping the messages in sync is no problem as they both use IMAP. However I would also like to keep the contacts in the address books in sync too.

Is there a way to do this?

Having a problem getting Firefox to open. When you try to click on it it looks like it wants to open, but the homepage is blank. When I try to log in the page stays blank. I can see the menu bar but none of the choices will open. I have uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times, each time removing any and all Firefox folders. Still will not open. Followed the steps for a clean install, no change. The last time I was downloading Firefox I received my first error message: c:\windows\system32\msvcp140.dll error message I get no other error messages, the home page stays blank. Any suggestions on what to try?

Hey, this just recently started happening but whenever I try to playback video (mainly on twitch) the tab crashes immediately.

I've tried starting Firefox in safemode and disabling add-ons; crashing still occurs either way. I tried opening streams on Chrome and they open up fine. I have also tried clearing my cache and disabling hardware acceleration. Lastly, I have also ran windows DISM and sfc.

Also, youtube videos work fine but I can't watch twitch streams.

Here are my crash reports: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/78bc74ac-8f7c-4ced-938e-5c7b60201020 https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/9a8a8819-2a42-4600-aeae-78c430201020 https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/80d64d3b-d525-49b9-877c-17ba70201020 https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/72b02da3-cf5a-46a2-b024-a587d0201020

I had to restore my hard drive and lost the icon short cut to one of my email accounts. I tried creating a new short cut following Firefox Help; however, the instructions are inaccurate or out of date. There is no "icon on the left of the address bar". Alternatively I discovered that I could drag another part of the email display and create an icon for the email service but it is created as an Edge Chromium (damn Microsoft!) which was just installed via a Microsoft update. From my research I discovered that Microsoft has so embedded Edge Chromium that removing it runs the risk of making the OS unstable. My question: is there a way were I can create an icon for my email service that will launch in Firefox and not Edge Chromium?

Using Toad-Hall instructions of 8/27/20, I went to the incoming server setting and changed it from "Normal Password" to "OAuth2" and did the same for outgoing server. I closed Thunderbird then opened it. When I opened it I did not get any prompt for access from Yahoo. I then tried to send an email to myself and to my Husband's yahoo email and I got a notice on both saying "the Imap server does not support the selected authentication method. Please change the authentication method in Account Settings Outgoing server SMTP". I changed it all back to "Normal Password" and everything is currently working fine. I am 74 years old and not a tecky person. Please explain in simple steps what I am supposed to do to enable me to continue to use Thunderbird. I have used Thunderbird for about 20 years and would hate to have it go away. Thank you for your response and I know this change is happening tomorrow. Claudia

I have been using my compuserve email address for 30 years. For years, I have been accessing it through Thunderbird, even after compuserve was absorbed by aol, and aol was absorbed by yahoo, etc. It was working fine until a couple of weeks ago, using aol server settings and compuserve password. Recently I got a notice from aol that security as being upgraded, and I needed to delete my old Thunderbird account for my compuserve address, and set it up. When I tried to do that, using aol server settings, Thunderbird would not go to the aol server, but to a yahoo sign up page. Anyone know why this is happening? Compuserve support said they don't know. It should be going to the aol server, which for years has accepted my compuserve password.

Hi, I am not really that happy with the latest version of Firefox android and i have used it for years.

I used to really like that my bookmarks were the first thing that showed when i opened Firefox and i never had the issue i am having now either.

Before this new version i would tap on one of my bookmarks and a new refreshed version of that site would always load, i am finding that to make things a a bit quicker and still have some sort of bookmarks on my home screen i have had to add sites either to collections or to what you now call top sites.

I don't know why i can't just have my bookmarks on the front as they are the sites i always go to and the way you have changed it has just made it hard to do things, i feel like i shouldn't have had to setup collections and top sites just to have the same thing?

The main issue is that when i tap on sites from top sites or collections a copy of the last time i visited that site shows and i have to refresh it every time to get the latest content, this is especially a nuisance for news sites such as bbc etc. this didn't happen prior when i used to just select the site i wanted from my bookmarks?

I know tapping on the top right and going to bookmarks isn't exactly hard, but you have made it all 'feel' harder than it was before, it was easy to open multiple sites from bookmarks before as well and now that feels hard to having to long press and then select all the sites i want to open first.

Is there any way the issue regarding sites not opening with the latest contents be fixed and if this isn't an issue as such as far as you see it, could there be at least an option in settings so that people then have to option to load an old cached copy of sites to make loading faster or to load new contents so that the user has the option?

Regards

James

I really need some handholding here... I've been using an ancient version of Thunderbird (v 12.0.1) forever. I am wanting to try the newest version for Mac (78, I think). I have a huge archive of past mail, plus multiple address books. I cannot figure out how to migrate all my old familiar items into the new version. I've tried several times but I just get stumped every time. Can someone walk me through the process of creating a new profile in v.78, then importing, or somehow transferring, all my old mails and contacts into the new version? Thank you!

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!

I've been using Firefox for years without any issues. I recently added Facebook Container to my add-ons. Guess I can't tell if it's working, or not, but...

I have been having some real issues in FB for a few weeks, now, and am wondering if it is because of Facebook Container.

Responses are very laggy and jerky. When I place my cursor onto the Like button, the other options take some time to pop up. They will also take some time to show up once I click on them. If I accidentally cursor over the date and time line under a person's name, that black pop up box will stay popped up for a long, long time. That wouldn't be so bad, but it often covers text I'm trying to read. Often, when I try to click on the Like button, especially for a picture, it will lag, then the picture will pop open. In general, FB is just very laggy and jumpy.

Any ideas? Could it be FB Container causing these issues?
