Hello

I seem to have lost the Search function* in my emails (Thunderbird).

How can I re-install this function?

Also, how do I find out what version of Thunderbird I've got?


(*I don't know if I'm using the right term - I'm meaning the feature that was at the top RH corner of the page, that enables one to search for past messages).

Hi

I have set Enhanced Tracking Protection to Strict. Some sites may throw you out if you select "I do not accept" (cookies). Some sites make a statement along the lines "By using our service you are deemed to have accepted cookies". If in the former case I select "accept" or in the latter continue to use the site, would that override the Firefox "Strict" setting or would the Firefox Strict setting still block cookies etc?

My apologies if this is already answered elsewhere. I have looked at the help pages but much of this stuff is over my head.

When I open thunderbird, the "get messages" and "write" icons are grey and don't function. When I click the email, to set it, I put in my name, email address and password, and click continue. I get a confirmation that "configuration found at Mozilla ISP database". And when I click "done" I get the response: "unable to login in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username, or password". I guess the password I'm putting in is wrong, but I can't find a way to change it. I tried to follow the instructions in the support center, under privacy and security. The instructions start with "At the top of the Thunderbird window, click the Tools menu and select Options, or click the menu button fx57menu and choose Options."

I don't have a Tools menu, and when I enter the "options" at the menu bottom of three horizontal lines, there is no "security" but I do have "privacy and security". In "privacy and security" I don't have saved passwords.

I'm stuck. Thank you very much for your help.

After updating (now have 78.5.0 32bit) it apears that Thunderbird cuts emails while forwarding or replying. It happened when yellow folders changed automaticaly (with one of the updates) for white with black lines. Now receivers complain that canot see all history of this replied/forwarded email. It was never a problem before. I can see that the problems appeared on many different mailbox clients (Outlook, BBM, iPhone etc). However on Thunderbird`s "send" folder" I can see that full email text had been sent. The same problem is on two other PC`s (all Win10 64 Bit) Already tried marking "false" for "mailnews.reply_quoting_selection" and "mailnews.reply_quoting_selection.multiword" and nothing.

I received a message with a potential virus as zipped attachment. I deleted the message immediately, no problem so far. However, "Norton internet security" still detects the potential virus in the inbox file.

I deleted all inbox messages, emptied the trash and compressed the account folders. Anyway, Norton still finds the potential virus in the inbox file. What can I do? Can I delete the inbox file and Thunderbird will create a new one? Or will the whole account be messed up?

I am experiencing a Captcha problem on numerous websites. For example sending an email or query on a website where it is provided to do so under the Contact Us tab. I would type everything, hit submit, and the first notice that Captcha was required is the alert to say Captcha or reCaptcha has not been recognized (or other wording to that effect). Is it possible that the add-on from Firefox for this app is causing the problem on my Windows 10 desktop computer.

Hello. I've noticed the following behavior since a couple of days ago:

ACTION: Forward email message from Thunderbird client to hotmail address

RESULT: Email received in hotmail address only contains header information (from, to, subject, date, etc.) but not the actual email content of all the forwarded thread

When checking Sent Items in TB, the email message is correctly displayed (i.e. it includes all images and content that were supposed to be sent)

Repeating the same test but using a web browser instead of TB client to forward the very same email works as intended (i.e. all message content is sent and all message content is received).


Why isn't the full message content being sent from TB client? Or, if it's being sent, why is it not being shown in the recipient's addresses?

Any thoughts/comments would be greatly appreciated!

Updated to Thunderbird 78 and now for now apparent reason, every time I start Tbird it accosts me with "Reminders" I don't want, and if I try to dismiss them it wants me to sign into Google.

I don't want *** ANY ** of this, I just want EMAIL! I don't want calendars, tasks, reminders, or other needless interference in other things by Thunderbird.

How can I turn TASKS OFF and/or totally remove these unwanted features?

I created a 2nd profile for use at work. Initially my new profile came up with my personal bookmarks toolbar - which I use a lot. I assumed (bad idea) this was a copy and that I could edit it and modify it for work. It turned out that I was changing bookmarks toolbar for both profiles. I was hoping to use two different bookmarks toolbars one for each profile.

If my assumption was correct and I should be able to have independent profiles where did I go wrong?

How do you answer you own question? Anyway:

Blimey, I have sorted it. You need more than just profiles (As far as this layman can tell) to transfer your emails etc. If you have an out of date back up delete the thunderbird folder users\username\appdata\roaming\thunderbird then paste the thunderbird folder from your out of date back up in it's place then paste your up to date profiles over the same folders within the thunderbird folder...sorted. Crikey! It took me ages to work this out myself

I have found my thunderbird profiles and have followed exactly (Tried 3 times) the advise in this article: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1273478 but when I open thunderbird it still looks like a new intallation and there is no sign of my profile emails etc.

Is the problem that i am trying to transfer data from an older version of Thunderbird? My old laptop (Also windows 10) had Thunderbird 1st intalled in February 2020. Please help!

My old windows 10 laptop died. The hardrive is fine and i have it connected to my new computer with a wavlink. I cannot find my thunderbird profiles on it. I have tried everything suggested on the internet. Please help!

Open Link In New Tab - PDF Files

Hi, PDF File handling has recently changed - For the worse for me and it's become really frustrating.

When I right click a PDF file link and select "open link in new tab", why does Firefox then ask me how I want to treat the file? I just asked it to open the file in a new tab, so it should be obvious what I want to do - asking again is illogical.

Not only that, before the file handling dialog box, it opens a new tab next to the tab I'm in and then closes it when the dialog box appears - When I select the unnecessary "open in Firefox" (I just asked it to open in a new tab), it now creates a new tab at the END of my tabs and steals focus.

I also get the file handling dialog box when I ask to "save link as", when logically I should just get the save location dialog box.

How do I get the old behaviour back?

Thanks folks
