Information on how to add the Google 'Tasks' into Thunderbird Calendar: I have a gmail imap account using OAuth2 as Authentication Method.

File > New > Calendar, select 'Google Calendar' >  click on 'Next' choose or enter: gmail email address   > click on 'Find Calendars' Select 'My Tasks' and click on 'Subscribe'

You may be asked to enter password as per Oauth2 Authentication.

See image. It shows the selection available when you follow instructions. It shows where 'My Tasks' is located in the Calendar list. I selected 'My Tasks' and then clicked on 'Task'. Create the Task and save. Task is shown in Thunderbird and on the right side you can see the Task is displayed via the webmail access using a browser.

Firefox 99.0

I guess it's a problem with the latest update because it didn't happen to me before. Gmail keeps showing me this message: "Gmail is having authentication problems. Some features may not be operational. Please try logging in to troubleshoot the problem." I have relogin, deleted the cookies and site data but I still get that message. I have tried starting the browser from "about:support" in troubleshooting mode but the error still appears. This does not happen in other browsers.

I have a new computer. I transfered my Firefox settings to the new one. Everything worked fine on Windows 10. After a few weeks, the new computer updated to Windows 11 and since then I have problems with Google products on Firefox.

Gmail starts working fine, but after a few minutes it cannot connect to the internet any longer. I get the "Oops..." error message - sometimes a #0001, sometimes a #2005. Google Search after a while simply stops reacting on input.

I have cleared cache, cookies, updated, reinstalled and even reset Firefox. I have looked into my proxy settings and tried different options, but nothing helps.

I am using Windows 11 and Firefox 95.0 (64-bit).

I have now transfered my passwords and bookmarks etc. to Chrome, and on Chrome I have no problems whatsoever.

My impression is that I cannot do much more (or when, then very complex things) and that this is rather a problem that Firefox as software is having with Windows 11 and Google products - and that should be sorted out on the Firefox side.

Are there more people with similar problems? What's the sollution? Or should I simply move to Chrome?

I purchased a new computer and downloaded Firefox to the new computer. While going through my bookmarks, I tried to log into my Gmail account and it would ask me to "Add Gmail to your Google Account". What is odd is I just tried accessing my Gmail account from my old computer using Firefox and I was able to access my mail. I have looked through all the Firefox settings on both computers and cannot find any differences. Looking through other posts about this issue, I've tried the safe mode and disabled add blocker without satisfactory results. I find no need to clear the cache because the computer is a day old.

Hello there,

Since I started working in a new office, Gmail shows Error #001 ("Ooops" error).

This problem happens only in with Gmail, only with Firefox. Neither other browsers do not have issues with Gmail, nor other pages have problem to be loaded in Firefox. And it do happens only when connected to the wlan of the office, not at home or anywhere else (so far).

A working solution was to delete all the cookies and history related to Gmail in Firefox. However the problem repeats again.

Any support is much appreciated.

Cheers!

Hello! I understand that Google just updated Gmail's chat feature, and I wanted to report that I'm having issues opening chats in Gmail's new UI. Whenever I click on a name, the chat bubble does not open in Firefox, even when chats open in other browsers.

I've been able to replicate this issue in Troubleshoot mode, so I don't believe the problem is with any of my add-ons.

Any advice/is this a known issue?

I'm a longtime Chrome user trying to move away from that browser. I recently downloaded Firefox and it worked fine for a few days, but now I'm having problems.

I keep Gmail and Google Classroom open in tabs throughout the day (I'm a teacher). They worked fine in Firefox for a few days, but now both sites constantly load or time out.

The problem seems to go away anytime I restart Firefox, but I can't constantly be restarting Firefox all day long. Why do the sites work for a few minutes and then stop working a few minutes after restarting?

I had AdBlocker Ultimate enabled before, but my friend uses uBlock so I tried changing. No help.

I had a theme installed from the recommended list. I thought that might be a problem, so I went back to the default Firefox theme. No help.

What I'm running: Firefox 89.0.1 MacOS Catalina

Several weeks ago (not sure when it really started) I noticed that Gmail would not load. Going to the Gmail page I get the following: Temporary Error We’re sorry, but your account is temporarily unavailable. We apologize for the inconvenience and suggest trying again in a few minutes.You can view the G Suite Status Dashboard for the current status of the service. As I said, this "temporary" error seems to be permanent. This happens in FF and Chrome (I rarely use chrome). I have cleared ALL data. I have refreshed FF. MS Edge accesses Gmail. So, I think it seems like a Mozilla problem, some how.

settings for a simple experience with gmail and thunderbird

I am in my 70s and have been through a lot in the last 3 years (flooded home, my husband, dog and chihuahua living in a tiny room for a year and a half, suffering a $50,000 loss to a shifty contractor, two cancer scares, etc.), and the latest challenge--the pandemic--has fried what used to be my pretty good brain cells. Now,I find that in order to continue using technology, I must have step-by-step directions, preferably with pictures, or I simply cannot function in the tech world. I am not quite ready to give up, so I was wondering if some kind soul(s) out there that still have working brain cells would be willing to help me? My dad kept his computer skills going until he passed away at 92, and I am hoping to be that fortunate, but it is not looking good. Everything is so interwoven now days, it drives me to distraction.

I have managed to set up a gmail account, then installed Thunderbird on my desktop, but I am at a loss understanding what configuration to use to get the easy-to-use performance I want. Some notes:

1. When I get an email, I do not need to archive it anywhere (not sure what that means anyway). I open the mail, read it and then save it to the appropriate folder on my hard drive, then delete the copy in my Thunderbird (and, hopefully, it deletes in gmail). I don't know what ALL MAIL is or why I need it? What should my settings be to accomodate my system? Once I have saved an email to my hard drive or deleted it, I want it gone, period, from gmail and Thunderbird. I usually only have email from the current or previous day, that's it. I keep a clean inbox and have a highly structured set of folders to save any emails I want throughout my hard drive in the logical folders for them.

2. I like sent mail copIes in a SENT mail folder until I delete them because sometimes I check back to see what I sent.

3. I want the contacts set up in gmail synced to Thunderbird and stay current with any changes in either email client.

4.The DRAFTS folder is important so that, if I am interrupted, I can come back and finish mail later.

5. I do not want LABELS, IMPORTANT, STARS or any other folder to complicate things. I just want INBOX, DRAFTS, SENT, SPAM, AND TRASH...and when I put it in TRASH, I want it gone when I close Thunderbird.

6. In summary, I just want the basics so that I can continue to use technology no matter what challenges are going on in my life.... for another decade, if possible.

I am using a Lenovo Legion laptop, Windows 10 64bits, Chrome (sorry, Firefox, but I am too old to switch now), and Thunderbird whatever the latest version is. I truly love Thunderbird, but I cannot figure out what settings to use to accomplish the system above.

This Texas granny would be forever grateful if any brainy people out there could dumb-down some steps for me to accomplish the above... and if you have screenshots, I will sing your praises from now until eternity!

After updating to Firefox 79.0 on August 10th, I am unable to load Gmail. When I try to go to Gmail by either 'gmail.com' or 'mail.google.com' the browser will load but will never take me off the current page and eventually stop without any error messages.

I have tried deleting all website cookies and data, reinitialize storage, clearing browser cache, disabling hardware acceleration and trying in safe mode. Deleting cookies and data fixed it for several hours but then it quickly stopped working again.

I've attempted to load Gmail on both Chrome and Edge and it worked fine on both of them.
