About a week ago Thunderbird quit sending my incoming mail with the message of it times out therefore no new email. I checked with my internet server and made sure email was all ok they said a "timed Out" usually means anti-virus settings causing this. Checked this morning and anti virus is ok. Thought problem was solved, cleaned out mail as had lots in inbox. Now just tried again and doing the same thing. What could have changed the timing out and not getting mail downloaded?

I have several email accounts and use Thunderbird as my mail collector. I am now trying to exclude certain accounts from the "Get Messages" option. There used to be a setting under account settings ''''account settings/server settings/advanced…/include this server when getting new mail.''' but this no longer seems to exist. (I'm using TB 68.9.0 on MacOs) Is there another way to do this? (It's probably obvious but I cannot find it!!)

For two days, I have been trying everything I can after reading these boards to get past this error message: "Thunderbird is already running, but is not responsive. The old Thunderbird process must be closed to open a new window"

I backed up my data on an old computer yesterday, but before I could even get it to the new computer, had issues with opening Thunderbird on the old computer again. I always get the message above.

Tried installing the backup on the new computer - and now am getting the message over there.

I have tried so many of the suggestions in these Thunderbird threads. I am at my wits end.

I have tried to start in safe mode on both computers, run the exe file manually, compare the profiles.ini file to prior backups (it is the same), look for lock files (there are none I have found), used the Profile Manager utility to install on new computer without success....

One thing that comes to mind for me next... 1) I have a copy of a backup from June 5, 2020 that was successfully used to install on the (now) old computer. If I thought that I could do a fresh install of Windows on the new computer and have that June 5th copy install properly - at this point I would do without 20 days of e-mail.

Thanks in advance for any assistance that you can give!

Since upgrading to 77.0.1 (macOS) i cannot reliably pull up any websites. If I disable/enable the proxy settings, or reload the proxy (using automatic WTAD), it will sometimes work for a few sites, before dying again. Any fixes?

EDIT: Clarify: It worked fine with 75. And Chrome and Safari both work, either "using system settings" or entering the WTAD address for auto proxy config.

but if the synced data is encrypted by device A and sent to mozilla server for saving, how does device B able to decrypted the data received from mozilla after signing in ? this can be possible only if the encryption happens at mozilla server side and not the device itself .

How do I get rid of the "Download the new Microsoft Edge" banner that keeps popping up in Firefox? I have checked for solutions on the web and have already gone into Windows 10 settings and disabled the "Get notifications from apps" option, and unchecked the "Get tips, tricks and suggestions" box. That doesn’t help at all.

I have a strobe sensitivity and visual motion sensitivity, so the default Firefox settings aren't safe for me.

(For example, the default settings have flashingcursors, autoscroll, smooth scrolling, autoplay enabled, no ad blocker installed, etc.)

I can't use a new profile unless I can copy over all my existing safety and accessibility fixes. Besides about:preferences, that includes a number of fixes to about:config, userChrome.css, userContent.css, and a number of add-ons.

I am not quite sure what the Autoconfig can do, or how to set it up, but I understand I would need to manually track down and copy all my safety settings, which isn't even possible with the current about:config. And wasn't practical with the old one.

Anyway, trying to follow debugging instructions, which often involve creating new profiles, and then copying everything to these profiles so I can test them relatively safely, has gradually screwed up my Firefox installation. A lot of freezes, the url bar going unresponsive, etc.

Maybe if I can sync to a dummy location and then back I can fix this. I don't know what else I can do.

Since I updated to 77.0.1 firefox has for unknown reason has concluded that there is a system administrator which has disabled updates. It says so in setting (topleft) and in about firefox (instead of update button). I have been able to change all other settings that I know of. I have also refreshed the browser once, disabled all addons once, and deinstalled it to reinstall the latest version once.

Is there a solution for this bug?
