Cant login to Gmail with OAuth2, unsupported browser error

I am using the latest Thunderbird 91.8.0.8126 and latest Firefox 99.0.1.8136. I am having the same issue as reported in these posts: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/q… (funda kabanzi)

I am using the latest Thunderbird 91.8.0.8126 and latest Firefox 99.0.1.8136. I am having the same issue as reported in these posts:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1343530 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1344530 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1350244.

I have 5 Gmail accounts that I manage for different family members. All accounts in Thunderbird access Gmail via IMAP, and are configured to login with OAuth2.

This week, Google removed Thunderbird access from 2 of the accounts, I do not know why. When I login to the accounts via the web in Firefox, Thunderbird was no longer listed under their 3rd party access. The other 3 accounts are fine.

1 of the accounts does not have 2FA enabled. I was able to re-login with Thunderbird when prompted, and I was presented with a window to grant Thunderbird access, which worked, no problem. So Thunderbird's browser was clearly recognized.

But the other account does have 2FA enabled, and that is where the problem lies. Thunderbird prompts for login, and the username and password are accepted, but when I enter the 2FA verification code, Thunderbird presents a window saying "Your browser is not supported anymore. Please update to a more recent one." (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1677845). There is no option presented to grant access to Thunderbird. Yet, the verification did work, because my primary email receives notification that the account was logged in from a new device.

For the record, the failing 2FA account is managed by Family Link (the other non-2FA account is not). According to https://support.google.com/mail/thread/127545584/, such accounts cannot login to email clients. But that has never been a problem before, and 1 of the other still-working accounts in Thunderbird is also managed by Family Link and works just fine, so that can't be the culprit.

Also, I do have AVG installed with Email Shield enabled, but disabling that makes no difference.

Thunderbird's UserAgent is "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:91.0) Gecko/20100101 Thunderbird/91.8.0". And yes, cookies are enabled in both Thunderbird and Firefox.

Is there a way to get Thunderbird to use Firefox properly for Gmail login, instead of its own integrated browser?

I am using Thunderbird version 31.7.0 and it keeps randomly crashing when usually when I try to send an e-mail. The e-mail appears to go out, but it is not copied to my send folder. I can keep it working is I use safe mode.

My Crash links are: https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/9e388085-aa3d-454c-bf55-924102150612 https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/2613f4fa-89d4-49c3-92ad-4f3292150612 https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/a5f726e5-8f62-40a9-9087-4bab92150610

Hopefully someone has an idea how to fix this. It appears every crash is for the same reason.

Thank you for your help.

I have Thunderbird installed on two computers.

On one of the computers, emails being held in my inbox are being automatically removed after two weeks (this is not a desirable action, I am loosing important emails), but on the other computer that is configured exactly the same, emails remain in the inbox indefinitely (which is desired).

Both computers are POP and both configured to run the same email account and appear to have all of the same configurations and settings. I saw someone had posted the same problem a while ago and the reply indicated it may be that the ISP or email provider has their settings set to delete emails as per the two week window, but as I can assure you this is not the case, it is a configuration issue with one of the Thunderbird installations, otherwise both of my computers would be deleting the emails while that is not the case.

Thanks,

Jeff Rogerson

The problem is firefox 9 - 12 is not loading any websites or webpages. It crashes instantly upon opening them. Versions lower then firefox 9 - 12 work flawlessly. Probably nobody will answer this but it is really important for my VM.

I love how the new tab page clearly states "Never fear losing a closed tab again.", and then when a window disappears it is followed by zero history to recover it. I have not restarted Firefox, let alone my computer since the last time the window was seen (about half an hour ago). It's not in my Alt+Tab tray hiding. I don't even remember closing the tab--though it's possible my keyboard double pressed when I was closing another window. (It's old and has a tendency to double hit keys). But now I have lost a window with at least 20 tabs open--mostly things i had yet to deal with and don't remember the URL to get back to it.

What use is my history and ability to reopen accidentally closed windows if everything just disappears from it within half an hour after the window could've been closed?

I would prefer to keep most of my browsing on Firefox, but I can't constitute that if I'm going to lose months worth of saved tabs randomly.

google.com and google related websites doesn't load at all. For example, gmail slowly loads, but loading icon never disappears, loading icon is always shown and then often it shows 'reconnecting' message. This works OK in Chrome.

Steps to reproduce: 1. Open Firefox without VPN - all loads well. 2. Enable VPN - stops loading. If I then disable VPN - it starts loading again.

If I restart Firefox it starts working OK, but after a while stops working again.

A few days ago, Thunderbird asked for the password to my Yahoo mail account. I've been using Thunderbird to access my Yahoo emails for a few years and I haven't changed the password, so I thought it was strange, but I entered the password. I can access my Yahoo emails through other apps without a problem. I think I may have entered the wrong password first time, but checked the password on the other apps, so I know I'm using the right one now. I'm getting the error message "Unable to login at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password." I've tried removing the email account and re-adding, but it still fails with to connect. Anyone have any ideas, thanks.

I got a notice that Firefox (and Thunderbird) were updated this morning. Took me an HOUR to find out how to make the miniscule font in my inbox larger. So.. suddenly, new problem.

When I click the Firefox icon to launch the browser, and reopen my tabs, It opens for a millisecond, then closes faster than I can try to read if there is an error. When I click it AGAIN, all my tabs are GONE and I have to search for them manually, which is a royal pain.

Why is this happening? How can I stop it from happening? This is annoying as hell.

I have tried everything and cannot manage to load any webpage that prompts a reCAPTCHA. The tab immediately crashes.

1- I've tried several webpages. They all work well until a reCAPTCHA pops up, the tab crashes and creates a dump file 2- I tried uninstalling Firefox, including erasing profiles and all Mozilla folders then reinstalling, and selecting refresh. It sill happens. No addons or extensions, and HW acceleration on and off 3- The problems goes away if I run Firefox on Troubleshooting Mode

Version is 94.0.2 (64 bit) running on Windows 10 21H1 on an i7 1165G7

Am I missing something? Is there a way to do a cleaner install?

Every day my Thunderbird crashed when getting email. I assumed it was a corrupt email rule, annoying but not sure how to address. Incidentally a few months ago, due to another project, I had to move my Thunderbird profile from my Windows machine to my Mac and when I did the crashing stopped. That project has now finished and I've moved my profile back to my Windows machine and the problem is back. I've installed the latest 102.13.0(64 bit) version of Thunderbird, but no difference. Are there any logs that might show in a bit more detail what's going on ? The log that's shown with the "Thunderbird has crashed" message seems to be little use.

Any other suggestions as to why the mac is happy but Windows isn't ?

Cheers

Just recently, I've been having problems with websites run by Cloudflare. Whenever I attempt to access ANY website that is operated by Cloudflare, I'm often presented with a blank page, or a Firefox error message. Sometimes I'm even presented with the DDoS protection error, even though my computer is clean having being scanned by Kaspersky and Malware Bytes.

I reiterate this and say that it's only Cloudflare sites that are causing problems. Very occasionally they will work for up to an hour or so but most of the time it is error messages or blank pages. Interestingly, other web servers such as Amazon, OVH SAS and Akamai all run with no problems so I wonder what is Cloudflare's problem? Is this something to do with my browser or the web hosting services?

Recently I upgraded my Windows 10 to Windows 11 and since doing so, I've had consistent errors while browsing the web on Firefox. Most notably the "Humm. We're having trouble finding that site." error message.

For example, when visiting, say Verizon.com, the tab will display the aforementioned error to which I press Try Again and the website loads correctly every-time. No hiccups on the refresh.

I've tried the following:

  1. I've performed a completely clean uninstall of Firefox and then reinstall
  2. Cleared all browser history/cache
  3. Removed all extensions
  4. Disabled IPv6, HTTPS Over DNS, No Proxy
  5. Ran through Firefox's troubleshooting
  6. Used Firefox Troubleshooting Mode in the Browser
  7. Tested that the problem does not happen while using Edge

I've never had a single problem on Windows 10 with Firefox. Curious if others are experiencing the same issues and if there are any fixes. Nothing else on the PC has changed.

Help! ... I now use Yahoo Mail accounts on Thunderbird. I keep getting a window pop-up: "Server imap.mail.yahoo.com has disconnected." and Thunderbird stops working. This has been going on for over a month and I thought re-addressing AuthO2 thru Yahoo Accounts would have stopped these pop-up windows, but nope. This is frustrating as I use Thunderbird for our business as well as personal. I have to constantly reboot Thunderbird to get it working again for around 10 minutes before it goes down again & I have to re-boot. What's going on here? The complete message in window pop-up reads: [ Server imap.mail.yahoo.com has disconnected. The server may have gone down or there may be a network problem. ] I've never had this problem with Gmail accounts or Verizon accounts before we transferred accounts to Yahoo & I've been using Thunderbird for over 25 years.

Hi, I just replaced my SSD (Samsung 960EVO m.2 250Gb) for a larger/faster SSD (Samsung 980 m.2 1Tb) . I'm on Windows 10 and have 32Mb Ram. Firefox is now very slow on some websites (not all).

This example is typical and has occured on multiple sites. To test and compare, I copied the URL, created a new tab in Firefox, then Paste and Go. I timed this 3 times and each time was 30 seconds. I Pasted the same into Chrome and Edge and each time it was instant. https://savingschampion.co.uk/best-buys/personal/easy-access-accounts

On my previous SSD, there was never an issue of any lag on any site.

BBC.co.uk/news is fine, as are several other sites. Does anyone have any idea what's happening? This is making Firefox unworkable for me, so unless I can fix the issue, I will have to move permanently to Chrome or Edge. That would be a shame after many years with Firefox.

Thank you in advance.
