Hello all I just started my thunderbird after years of outlook. And I have donated money I hope this helps to keep this alive. With recent 2FA changes I have had to move here. it is years of old emails and for now I am getting them to review later.

But everyone seems nice here.

When I am downloading I notice limits on number of messages in one mailbox in Thunderbird. One mailbox is everything inside one email username right?

Sometimes it stops at 10, 000 Is the limit based on thunderbird or the email server I am getting my emails from ???

Thank you for anticipated help!

I am unable to send an email from my Thunderbird email account. I am able to receive emails. Spectrum is my ISP. They say it is a Thunderbird issue. I am getting a Spectrum error AUP#Out-1130 meaning the cmsmpt is blocked. When I am able to clear that error I get an error that it was unable to send because it timed out. It is not asking for my outgoing email password which it always has in the past. I am using Express VPN and Windows Security. I am using Thunderbird version 115.8.0. I am using Windows 10. I can send emails from the Spectum website (same email account).

I have tried disabling the Firewall and the VPN. It makes no difference with the problem of sending emails.

I am using Port 465 on my outgoing SMTP which the ISP recommends. Also SSL/TLS with normal password.

I need help be able to Send email from my Thunderbird account. The issue started about one week ago.

Thunderbird has always asked for my password to send email. It is bypassing this step. I think that it is necessary but it is bypassing this step in the process.

I upgraded to Supernova (Ver 115.2.1) last night and I can not reliably send emails with my Outlook account in Thunderbird.

At first, I got a pop-up window from Microsoft asking me to enter a code to allow Thunderbird to access my Outlook account. I entered the code I received via another email account which is my recovery Outlook account. It worked. So far, so good.

But today, that pop-up window appears briefly (empty) and then just vanishes whenever I try to send something out in my Outlook account in Thunderbird. Now, it no longer appears at all.

My outgoing emails for my Outlook account in Thunderbird now just time out sporadically. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

What is going on?

Thunderbird will not connect to my bt mail. I have tried Mailbird, Outlook and others and they will not connect. I have checked configuration with BT and they say all OK. Have changed password - no change. Manually configured with password - no change. My PC has had a new SSD since and still will not connect. I have Broadband with BT so I get the same privaligies as Premium. I have malwarebytes and that allows them to connect. Up until a couple of weeks ago it worked OK and then suddenly it stopped working. Had my local Techie shop look at it - no result. They said it must be BT, but spoke to them again today and they say it should work - certainly with outlook. They recognise connection, but says either config or password incorrect. Changed password again, but no change. Can you please tell me where the problems is. Thanks

How can we help? -- Not sure what to say to this question. Tell me what's wrong?

I can send messages. My ISP is Earthlink and I am running Thunderbird 115.8.0 on Windows_NT 10.0 19045 on old laptop. This seems to happen when I get new installs of Thunderbird. But usually if I do the following, then messages can be downloaded:

empty the provided folders [Inbox to Trash] compact folders clear history, cache, & disk space delete Inbox and Inbox.msf in my profile delete Mozilla cookies in Firefox [yes, I realize this is not relevant, but I am desperate] close Thunderbird, sign out of Windows session, and Shutdown or Restart

This time I have even tried Troubleshooting mode, but nothing seems to help. Another clue, Thunderbird is not always asking for my ISP's password like it usually does at the start of a session.

I've just tried to save something from firefox on linux(Manjaro KDE) and was baffled that there doesn't seem to be a way to manually enter the path and navigate to it in the save dialog. In addition to that, there are many locations missing and I can't seem to find a way to add new custom or favorites ones either.

All that combined means it was impossible to save my file directly to a network location, which is something I very often need to do. It just seems insane for such a basic feature to be missing and I've found a 4 years old thread about it meaning nothing has been done to fix this since? https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1279125

The only way I can see would be to mount the network path(not a good solution for one offs) and navigate to it(a symlink can make it closer to one of the existing shortcut but still annoyingly require more clicks) every time but that's very tedious since most of my saving is on a specific server drive.

Search does not work right. I find the latest update to be impossible to use. It comes up with a list of options that tell me nothing about what is in the emails. It use to be that It would just give me a list of emails that contain the search term listed with the latest ones at the top with the subject line and email address. I could then scroll through the list. I can not find any customization to return the old way. I have almost totally quit using search and just have to scroll through my emails to find any thing. I have a lot of emails in my inbox and it can take a lot of time by this archaic method. Please tell me how to change back to the old way or please change the a new(old) way in future releases.

Starting this morning I suddenly cant delete or mark emails as read in Outlook.live.com. Even if I open an email, and it appears as read after that, if I refresh or leave the page and come back, its marked as read again.

I tried dropping all add-ons (a kill switch to drop all add-ons and re-activate them is still a feature I feel Firefox needs, I have to click every single one of them every time) to no avail.

I was in the process of writing this question on the Microsoft forums (which is usually like whizzing in the wind) when I thought to try a different browser. I had zero issues and Outlook.live.com worked perfectly normal on Microsoft Edge.

This HAS to be a bug in a recent update in Firefox

Hey there support folks,

I'm having an issue with Thunderbird where I've removed an old account, but Thunderbird keeps trying to log into the account and pops up a warning every 10 minutes or so. I have no add-ons, no extensions, and I have two other accounts that work perfectly fine. I went through the process to remove my third account, which succeeded, yet Thunderbird is still trying to sign into it for some reason.

My hunch is that there is another section of the software (calendar, reminders, something) that is retained the account info and is trying to pull it from the server, but I have no idea how to find these other settings if they exist.

Thanks in advance for any help.

In Thunderbird for Windows 10 desktop, when I look at certain emails between certain dates, they display unrelated coded emails. This occurs on all my email from February 3rd to February 23rd. The last occurence is 10:23am on the 23rd. My emaill at 10:25pm is where it returns to normal. I have attached a screenshot for reference. To reiterate, the coding in the body of the email has nothing to do with the original email and some of the emails have been stripped of their content completely.

I should mention, these were showing normally originally. If I look on my phone email app, they are showing as they should be.

Hello there!

I have been trying to edit an existing browser extension (for the sole reason of adding new features to it for myself), and I've been trying to add it to my Firefox browser. However, upon trying to install it to the browser, it throws an error saying: "Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt". I've been trying to read more into this issue all across the internet, but none of the recommendations seem to be working.

I tested my extension locally and with using the about:debugging temporary add-on method, and everything seemed fine.

I tried to re-configurate the 'xpinstall.signatures.required' variable by setting it to false (even thought this method is considered unsafe in most cases), and the issue still occurs

I also tried adding a new gecko ID to it as stated in this article, but to no avail: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Add-ons/WebExtensions/manifest.json/browser_specific_settings

And last, but certainly not least, I tried compressing the extension with web-ext aswell.

My question is - is there a way to add this extension permanently to my browser without submitting it to Mozilla? I did not create this extension, I only added custom integrations to it for myself.

And more importantly - is there a way to add it to the basic Firefox browser, which is not Firefox developer of Firefox nightly? Or maybe create a desktop shortcut that will always start the browser in debug mode, always containing the extension as "temporary"?

I can see that many posts and questions have already been posted regarding this "custom add-on" topic, but my situation is a bit different since my goal is to only use this add-on by myself (and I'm also revisiting this topic since none of the previous suggestions worked in my case)

Any comments, helps, or even links would be greatly appreciated! Have a great day!

Today a website told me I needed to enable JavaScript in order to continue, despite the fact that it is enabled. At first, when I received this message, I turned off the "NoScript" extension and tried again, but the website still gave me that same message. So then I went to the about:config page. and it showed that JavaScript is enabled because it showed a value of "true". This sort of thing has happened more than once in the past. I'm forced to go to another browser such Microsoft Edge or Chrome, where I do not encounter this problem. Why is this happening in Firefox, and what can I do about it? My operating system is Windows 10 Professional, and if you need any other details, please let me know. I will appreciate your assistance.
