I recently installed version 102 and I am having an issue with password manager. I need to enter my password each time I want to check my email. If I check the box for password manager to save the password, I get the incorrect password error message. If I enter my password but do not check the save password box, I can retrieve my email. If I leave Thunderbird open I can retrieve email without reentering my password. If I exit Thunderbird, restart and retrieve my email, it asks me to enter my password again. I looked in security settings - My saved password box is empty and I can not add any accounts to it. I have tried deleting key3.db, cert8.db, logins.json to no avail. Any ideas?

I have set the synchronization target to be 90 days inside the account settings.

Upon compacting the folders and restarting thunderbird, the messages outside of that range is still in their respective folder.

Is there a way for me to delete the ones out of range, but keep a remote copy on gmail?

I was provided an email address by an organization in which I am an officer. The host ISP for it is GoDaddy. When I installed Thunderbird (newest download), I allowed it to search for recognized settings. It found them, and I accepted them -- the host server was "office365.com." After going through the rest of the steps, I got to my Inbox. I had someone send me a test message, and it arrived fine. However, when I tried to reply, I got the message "Login to server smtp.office365.com with username [xxxx@yyy.org] failed." When I canceled out of that dialog box, a new one popped up which said "Sending of the message failed. Unable to authenticate to Outgoing server . . ." I have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling Thunderbird, wiping out all profiles in between, and then using manual configuration to set things up as per guidance on a help page at GoDaddy for configuring Thunderbird. It uses "secureserver.net" rather than "office365.com" in the incoming and outgoing settings boxes. However, when I attempt to test the configuration, I get "Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, user name, or password." Help!

I have had to replace a laptop. On my previous laptop using 91.12.0 (64bit) I had 2 email accounts working great. On this new laptop I have 102.1.2 (64bit) I have my main account running ok. The second email account hangs on "checking password" during setup and won't progress beyond that. Sam password as works on previous laptop. If I stop that account creation and try again it then reports Incoming server already exists.

I have tried uninstalling and deleting %appdata% more than once and after reinstall same thing happens. Any ideas?

Should I try a previous version of Thunderbird?

I'm currently using a Windows 10 desktop computer most of the time, but will need to use a Windows 11 laptop for research travel several times over the next several months.

Will it be possible to copy my profile from Win 10 to the Win 11 computer, use the Win 11 computer for a few weeks, and then copy the profile back to the Win 10 computer?

Or is there something different about Firefox working with Win 10 or Win 11 that would keep this from working for me?

(BTW: Using Sync would probably not be feasible.)

Advice will be much appreciated!

Hi! I've searched this question but can't seem to find a "guide". I've been using Thunderbird on my PC/Laptop for at least a decade. I have a "Profile" folder but most of my mail is stored in a separate folder on my C: drive. It appears under "Local Folders" in Thunderbird. I don't know too much about Macs but just got a Macbook Pro. I've installed thunderbird and configured it to my email servers. I can get new email and now I'm at the point where I'd like to get the rest of my folders, address books, add-ons, etc. from my Laptop to my new Mac and it's a bit overwhelming. I wasn't able to export/import my address book, I've placed the .mab files in the new profile on the mac and they're not appearing and I can't help but to think that I'm missing a lot of other steps as well. I'd almost like to start over from scratch on the new Mac since my old install has been moved several times from pc to pc to laptop, etc. Any suggestions are most welcome! Thanks so much for your help in advance. PS I also had two accounts appearing on my Mac. . nyj****.net and nyj****.net (pop3). I'd like to continue using POP3. I was also able to have only 1 inbox on my PC (it was located under my "Local Folders") as well as 1 trash, etc. Can I have that again? Thanks again in advance :-)

I have my saved login and password details from another browser in a CSV and would like to import them to Firefox. I initially did not have the 'Import from a File' option in the drop down menu of the Logins and Passwords tab. After following a guide that instructed to set signon.management.page.fileImport.enabled to true in the about:config page, the option appeared. However, the said option is unresponsive to any clicks. The drop down menu simply closes once the option is selected, without any other reaction.

I'm not sure if this is a related problem but I am also unable to use the Import Wizard that appears on performing Alt+F and choosing 'Import From Another Browser...' The Import Wizard window only appears with a message that says "No programs that contain bookmarks, history or password data could be found."

Firefox browser version: 103.0.2 (64-bit) OS: Ubuntu 22.04 (64-bit) Windowing System: Wayland

Funnily enough, the 'Browse..' button for adding images under this support question doesn't work either.

I upgraded from Thunderbird 91.12.0 to 102.1.2 one week ago. Windows 10 21H2. I have many Saved Search folders. Since I upgraded when I click on any of them, no results (messages) are listed. If I right-click any of them, and left-click 'Properties', against 'Select folders to search' it now states '0 folders chosen', which is unexpected. I can fix this by manually re-choosing the folders for each one, but this shouldn't be necessary.

I did make a backup of my Thunderbird profile before the upgrade. I tried restoring one of the *.msf files from this backup to see if that would resolve it for the one saved search folder...but no.

Has anyone else come across this problem, and/or know a solution?

Hi, I desperately need help please regarding Thunderbird Email. I factory reset my computer to get rid of a variety of bugs/slowness etc. I downloaded/printed the support info regarding profiles off the mozilla support site. i followed the instructions and saved my profile. there looked to be two profile file folders. i save them on an external drive. Reset my computer. put thunderbird back on, however the new version of Thunderbird doesnt seem to want to migrate my files back. Im really worried that Ive lost my whole history of emails. I have been with Thunderbird for more than 10 years and saved hundreds of emails in various email folders. Ive tried loading one profile folder, the other, then both and all other variations. ive made new profiles and tried to upload my old profiles and nothing works. I did manage to get a couple of my historical email folders to appear, and some sent items from years ago. But 95% of the stuff i still cant upload. Im not very IT savvy, but i believe ive followed the instructions properly. Is there anything else I can try. are my folders saved in the "server" somewhere that i can access? should i try an use an old version of thunderbird? any advice (in laymans terms) would be appreciated very much :) thanks jackie

Any help? As far as I'm aware my install is 'normal'.

Hello - I've been looking around the Firefox site, and the Internet in general, and so far haven't found out the answer to my question: how do I get Firefox 104 to work on my Linux Mint 18.2 Cinnamon Sonya 32 bit? Specifically what I haven't been able to determine is whether or not I first need to upgrade my Linux, which I suspect. And if so, what's the minimum level of the OS that is required? I may be overlooking the simple answers, but so far I cannot find them. And so far the Firefox website upgrade feature does nothing that I can detect. Thank you for any assistance - Doug.
