Our company email host uses Office 365 exchange. As of yesterday (26 May 2022) all emails were blocked to Thunderbird on our networked office PCs using Windows 10. We cannot send or receive email on Thunderbird (fortunately it still comes through to our iPhones). Our host hold us that Microsoft has "recently started blocking POP3 connections on software such as Thunderbird".

 How do we fix this problem so that we can continue using Thunderbird, which has our email records for some 10 years?  We do not want to use a Microsoft mail client unless we really have to!  I imagine we aren't the only ones with this problem, but I couldn't easily find it by searching help.
 Many thanks!

Hi!

I often send an email to 140 recipients via SMTP. Until recently it took 2-3 seconds. Now it takes about 2 minutes. My web-hosting company Simply.com is very insistent that their server is not the problem. I use TB 91.7.0 (64-bit) on Ubuntu 20.04.4 LTS. I am not sure whether TB updated itself when the problem started. Any help would be appreciated.

I'm new to PC's. I have very basic knowledge of how to use an i-pad. A month ago I got myself a new MacBook. I installed Thunderbird, no problems. My old mail showed up, new mail came in. I installed GNupg.

Following FSF's excellent tutorial I set up Thunderbird with encryption, all good. Now I'm at the point where I 'should try it out' by sending 'Edward' my public key. This worked as I immediately got an encrypted e-mail from 'Edward' in my Apple inbox. However, on Thunderbird I was left hanging with a constantly spinning disc which I presumed meant Thunderbird was trying to retrieve said e-mail. This did not resolve.

After clicking here and there on Thunderbird's interface, I ended up at the account set up screen being prompted for my e-mail address and password. Three weeks had passed and I couldn't remember my password, nor find a note of it. I only have access to account set up and homepage. On homepage I looked through the 'hamburger' menu but I can't find anything that helps. So, I'm locked out of Thunderbird mail.

Any help would be appreciated on both how to resolve the password issue, and what might have gone wrong in retrieving 'Edwards' mail.

Many thanks, Darren.

Hello,

When I select text in Firefox the selection is not highlighted. The selection itself does work (e.g. deleting a selected word) but is not visible. The problem occurs in all fields where text can be entered, so the URL space, the search field but also text field on a page like this one. The strange thing is that the problem also occurs in Thunderbird.

I am using Ubuntu 18.04.6 LTS, Firefox 99.0 and Thunderbird 91.8.1

Per an article on yahoo news, I decided to clear data by going to: Settings->Privacy & Security->Cookies&Site Date->clear data

In hindsight, this turned out to be a mistake. Previously when using yahoo mail, it let me stay logged in for two weeks. Now I have to log in each time. There are also 2 or 3 other sites that logged me in automatically, but now have to log in every time.

How can I undo what I did?

Thank you for any help you can offer,

Hello,

So, my company want to trash their Exchange server for Gmail accounts. Welp, OK... but Thunderbird (last version) doesn't cooperate.

I tried to add a new account with the correct information. I set the IMAP/SMTP of Google as this is an other domain, SSL connection and OAUTH2 on both servers as needed. The Google window appeared, login and password is fine, I clicked on Authorize.

But Thunderbird doesn't want to create the account because of a sudden login/password issue.

The login/password is fine, I tried it on the browser and I did succeed the OAUTH2 process so this is not the issue. The Google account states that Thunderbird is indeed authorized.

Cookies are authorized.

I tried to change the password for something more stupid.

Heck, I even recreated a new profile without changing anything. In desperation, I even tried using the standard password method after activating the Less Secure Application in the Google account.

Thunderbird still refuses to connect to this account, with the same login/password error.

I don't get it.

Does someone have a solution before I shoot this retarded bird ?

Cordialy,

I managed to restore the single-spacing for bookmarks, kept a prior version of FF, and fought off nags to update every time I opened FF . . . until now when I was tricked into "allowing this app to make updates to your PC". It wasn't the usual nag button and I thought it was some kind of simple bug fix, but no, I was "upgraded" to v. 100.0.2 and my bookmark spacing fix was overwritten. Furious isn't strong enough to describe my reaction. All this time, and all the other complaints, yet I find no way to decrease the excessive spacing between bookmarks. I understand that this design may be better for those who use a finger on their screens, but what about us mouse-pointer users? Why are we so disrespected? What can I do to decrease the space between bookmarks?

Hi, I've just spent all day trying to follow all the different suggestions here regarding these issues. Adding all sorts of things to the userChrome CSS but 95% of the suggestions have no effect at all [I'm seriously non-technical, so I have no idea if I'm doing it correctly though...probably not] The only thing that I can change is the Tab Height...nothing else changes regardless of what numbers I put in there. The only way I've been able to make the Bookmarks folders usable at all is to enable Compact mode via about:config. But that actually makes it way too compact now...from one extreme to the other. At least it's usable now...so not the end of the world, but the right click menu still has way too much space between every entry [Compact mode made no difference to that at all]. I don't know how to make a screenshot of those menus :) so I took a couple of pics of the screen...can someone please show me what to add to the CSS file to make these ridiculously big spaces between the menu items way smaller...like they used to be before this Proton came in? I tried tons of things that people said to add to the CSS to fix this menu spacing thing but none of them changed anything. I'll include the CSS file that I have below. Thanks a lot

ps: for some reason the pics always come out sideways here

I was quite unhappy with the new Firefox Proton design, so I made a CSS file and copied the following code from a website. However, I don't know what to do to (1) slightly reduce the tab height, (2) get back tab borders for inactive tabs and (3) remove the small gaps between tabs. How exactly do I have to change the following code to do so (ideally, for convenience, please just complete the code accordingly)? Thanks in advance for any support!

Hi I'm using Firefox to open PDF files from a network directory. The reason is that it's probably the best PDF manager I can find.

  • What I wanted to do was have an option to open the file in a native viewer such as Adobe, this way look at 2 parts of the document at the same time.

At the same time keep it in Firefox.

Is there a setting to do this or an add-on. The add-ons I've seen are meant to open directly to Adobe from a web link I think.
