TB is taking up 11GB on my disk. I want to keep everything on the server (IMAP), but restrict what is synced locally. In settings, I've reduced the sync period from Forever down to 400 days. So now, how do I clear off from my laptop the messages over 400 days old, which still keeping them on the server? Quite a few other posts refer to this, but I can't find one that's really clear.

Many thanks.

About 3 weeks ago, I stopped getting email from ATT in Thunderbird. I am able to go online to the ATT mail and see my email, so it is something with Thunderbird. I've looked online for other suggestions and have tried several. Between everything, I've really messed things up and not sure where to start now. Last thing I tried was to delete the certificate and now I can't seem to add a certificate. Not sure if I'm suppose to create a new one or if there is one on my computer.

This morning I found some steps on how to create one. It had me go to the End-to-End Encryption to generate a new one. I didn't see that option, so I created a new OpenPGP key (not sure why I thought that would help).

Maybe the best thing is to try and reinstall Thunderbird.

I'm open to any suggestions.

Thank you.

I started using Chrome/Brave in order to be able to use profiles because I did not find that feature in Firefox. I really try to get away from google, so I searched extensively and found out: profiles do indeed exist as a feature in Firefox. My question now is: why are there no buttons or easily accessible settings (for example in connection with sync-settings) for using profiles and why does one need to type in strange things in the address bar to access the feature and even to start another instance of firefox with another profile?

My use case is this: I have a private profile, one for my job and one for union stuff which I don't want to mix into my job profile. Yet, on my home computer I'd like to have all three profiles running simultaneously. Sometimes one or more profiled windows have been closed down and I need to open a new window with a specific profile. I understand that I need to open a tab, type "about:profiles" and then scroll through a page with large amounts of techy information on all profiles and press the last one of four buttons under that profile.

I'm quite tech-savvy and typing "about:profiles" is doable for me, but it seems absurd, given that the feature is not sci-fi and is well visually accessible in other browsers (Chrome and Brave: rightclick on profilesymbol and choose from simple list).

Greetings.

I am using Thunderbird 125.0 (32-bit) on a Windows 10 PC (Windows 10 Home Version 22H2).

Within its Calendar interface, the Find Events function has no option to search all events, as shown in the attached screen shot.

Although I do not use this "Search All" functionality frequently, I do consider it essential.

Unfortunately, I am uncertain when it became unavailable. However, I suspect it was sometime within the past several months.

Thank you in advance for any clarification you may provide pertaining to this issue.

I have a CSV file from Outlook with addresses I want to import into Thunderbird.

In an older version of Thunderbird I was able to match the fields in the CSV to the fields in the Thunderbird address book but in the latest version this seems to be missing - I was able to move the fields up/down to match before importing but this doesn't seem to be available (see attached screen shot). The import screen looks different with no way of moving fields up/down to match.

The drop down arrows on the fields on the right (the Thunderbird address fields) only show one field so I am not able to match them.

How do I match the fields to the CSV file so I can import my addresses/contacts.

Thanks

I receive lots of junk or scam emails. I don't open them in order to make sure nothing negative happens. I'm constantly close to running out of storage space due to all these daily emails. My question is: is there a way to safely block or unsubscribe from these emails without clicking on them (opening them)? I right click on them in Thunderbird but don't see a suitable option. Also, I haven't ever deleted my junk folder, and I know there are emails in there that I need, so I can't periodically delete the junk folder (at least not for foreseeable future). I'd be very appreciative of any help! Thanks in advance.

My troubles began after receiving this email from Microsoft: “Update your sign-in technology before September 16th, 2024 to maintain email access.” MS insisted on a new password authentication – Oauth2. I checked my settings on my Thunderbird accounts and the drop-down lists didn’t show OAuth2 as an option. Then when I tried to send or receive emails I got messages saying that the authentication I used was not supported. I tried every option available in the lists and got the same rejection. (NOT OAuth2) After enabling multi-factor authentication I got these messages from MS: permissions: “Thunderbird will be able to read, update, create, and delete email in your mailbox. Does not include permission to send mail.” “Thunderbird will be able to send email on your behalf from your mailbox.” Thunderbird will be able to read, update, create, and delete email in your mailbox. Does not include permission to send mail. (???)

Then I somehow I let my guard down and ended up accepting a “Primary Password” for Thunderbird (which I didn’t save) and I’ve read multiple websites with ways to reset my PP but in order to reset the password that I don’t have, I am required to enter it anyway. (??) I tried using a command prompt according to a Mozilla help site but that didn’t work either.

The message from MS that TB would be able to function might be so if I could only log into TB, but I don’t have a PP. I can get to my emails online from the MSN and Earthlink servers but not via TB.

This has been going on for the better part of a week. I have been unable to send or receive emails on my MSN account or my EarthLink account. Yes, I seem to have dug a hole for myself. Can someone please pull me out? Maybe I’ll just buy some stamps and an abacus.

Thanks for whatever help is out there,

I’m running Win 10 and Thunderbird: 115.12.2 (64-bit)

Hello,

I love using Firefox Focus but it does not feel intuitive or ergonomic to have the address bar at the very top of the app. I would love the option for it be enabled at the bottom for ease of touch.

I hope this feature is considered in future updates.
