I'm using Thunderbird since 2007. Until now I always used POP3 for all my accounts, deleting some of the emails from the server after moving them to my local folders.

Now I switched to IMAP. No problem to configure it but I'm not sure how to use it correctly. The reason is because now I have to access emails from multiple devices.

In the account folders I see the emails synced from the IMAP server. Most of them are duplicated (because in the past I've already copied them in my local folders).

First question: should I create again the folders on the server and change the filters, correct? Otherwise, using the local folders will lead to waste of space because they will be duplicated

Second question: is there a way for a 2-way sync with the IMAP server? It would be nice to copy back the emails deleted from the server that are now in my TB local folders only. I'm aware I can simply drag-n-drop the emails back to the IMAP folders, but I have to manually check if they are already present or not.

Thanks in advance!

There is a feature of a website I use that does not work in my Android Firefox. The support guy in that website has told me that it happens because Firefox has not added a Clipboard API required for that feature. Are you planning to add it?

The website is acim.org/acim and the feature is making visual quotes. It works with Chrome as you can see in the attached screenshot. It's just that I would like to stick with Firefox no matter what I'm doing.

Thank you for your attention.

I cannot find the correct search terms to find what I am looking for and do not know if Thunderbird has this option or if there is an add-on.

Outlook (which I am in the process of replacing) has the ability to search an email account for “Messages in this Conversation” (see attached image.) It will then return a list of all common emails for the conversation as well as the folder it is locate in (see attached image.)

Can Thunderbird search in such a way? What type of search is this?

Thank you in advance

Hello,

The next message/previous message arrows that appear at the top of an open email in Hotmail.com is being blocked by Firefox. I checked Hotmail through another browser and they are not blocked. I tried refreshing Firefox and they were still blocked. I've opened Firefox without add-ons and they are still blocked. I'm at a loss as to how to get them back. They were there last week and then vanished only to come back on Friday and vanish again while I was reading emails. From time to time Firefox also blocks images in Hotmail and I just have to wait and eventually they return. I'm at a loss as to understand why these things are happening so frequently with Firefox and Hotmail.

Please help return Hotmail to the way it was before the last update.

Thanks,

Brian Himes

I have been using Firefox as my default browser for many years and much prefer it to the other browsers. However, several weeks ago Firefox started blocking the download of my morning newspaper. Now I have to copy the link from my morning newspaper email and paste it into Chrome to get access to my newspaper rather than simply clicking the link in the email. While I found this very annoying, when I couldn't find a workaround, I just continued to copy/paste into Chrome. Today I tried to download my IRA quarterly statement and found Firefox is blocking this pdf download also. Note that in neither case does Firefox tell me that they are blocking the downloads and they just do not download and some pdfs do download. So this is now getting beyond just annoying. Is there a workaround for this new Firefox problem or is my only alternative to define Chrome or Edge as my default browser and give up Firefox?

I recently was playing around with settings when trying to alter font size and found that on receipt of messages there now appears about 30 lines of what appears to be programming codes under headings such as: Message ID  :n<cc143aa9-b59d-536f-7f26-d2eca057b298@info.bitdefender.com>ow Return Path,, SMX results, DKIM Signature, SMX S1C,Content type and so on with a variety of other headings.

firefox wrongly flags video as geoblocked

Hello Mozilla support

I wanted to view the video at this site -

https://www.daserste.de/information/reportage-dokumentation/dokus/videos/die-recyclingluege-video-102.html

(The site is German public TV)

Firefox (my default browser) says the video is geoblocked outside Germany, and my DNS proxy will not unblock it.

I tried again with Chrome browser, no problem, the video is not blocked, didn't need the DNS proxy.

Could this be a firefox problem? It seems bizarre - a small proportion of videos from the site are in fact geoblocked, most are available internationally. And always previously, whenever I encountered a blocked video, my DNS proxy would unblock it. But not for this video.

Any ideas as to what's going on?

Thanks, Fraidy . (Firefox 101.0.1 64 bit Windows 7)

I am migrating to a new machine running Windows 11 (from old one with Windows 10) and have installed Thunderbird and Chrome as default apps. The only thing that is not working is clicking on a hyperlink in a message. I have read the article addressing this issue and tried all the suggested fixes. None work. When I click on a hyperlink in a message body, it just ignores me. If I right click on the link and choose open in browser from the pop-up, it ignores me. It does not matter what the type of link is. If it is a PDF, it does not open in the browser despite that being the default action for PDFs. More importantly, if it is just a link in a message (e.g., tracking info from Amazon), it does not do anything. I have looked at the setups on both machines and they seem identical. But what works under Windows 10 is not working under Windows 11. (As a computer scientist, I understand that there are a lot of variables in play here.)

I would appreciate any suggestions on how to get past this. Copy and paste is not the end of the world, but I would expect more consistent behavior.

I have a bunch of filters ( quite a lot but not, I think excessive judging by comments I've seen here -not in the hundreds). The filters are created by using the Quickfilters add on. And by and large they work really well. I'm using POP3 in a Windows 10 machine. I keep TB up to date and it's 64bit version. However, sometimes the filters just don't run. I think it's when I've recently logged in to the computer/user. But a bunch of messages that should have been sorted into folders will routinely be sitting in the global inbox when I launch TB. And they won't move even when I manually tell TB to filter them. It doesn't matter if I tell TB to run the filters on the folder or individual messages. Messages that tehn arrive after that will play nicely and slide into their folders. The log shown nothing of these messages. It is as if the filters hadn't woken up yet when the emails came through. Except than that filters still won't then work on the messages when run manually. As if the TB rules engine won't recognise they exist. Any ideas what I should do?
