My laptop kept getting slower, so I uninstalled some programs that I wasn't using, to try to gain HD space and hopefully speed up my machine.

Firebird was one of the pieces of software that I uninstalled. I don't know if I uninstalled Thunderbird at the same time, but I lost Thunderbird and all my emails.

I re-installed Thunderbird. To my surprise, all of the settings for my email server were there, etc, along with a few emails. I have a FEW emails from 2021, but of course, not any that I really want. All the important emails, I lost.

I thought I was saving my emails (somewhere) to my computer, so if something like this did happen, I would hopefully have my emails back, but I am not finding any emails.

Would emails be in "mbox" ? If not, what file type are Thunderbird emails?

Thank you for any help you can give me. I am destroyed with the emails that I lost.

Hi, I just got a new HP Windows 11 desktop. I used Thunderbird on my old Dell Windows 10 PC fine. I have Spectrum for email and it's time warner cable twc.com they are also Charter. My new PC came with a trial of McAfee. I am having a problem I saw someone else post where I can receive email but not send I get error about timed out and just now got this Sending of the message failed. The message could not be sent because connecting to Outgoing server (SMTP) .gmail.com failed. The server may be unavailable or is refusing SMTP connections. Please verify that your Outgoing server (SMTP) settings are correct and try again. I asked Spectrum if it had to do with Mcafee they said no to contact you all. They said my settings are right which I copied off my old PC. I thought I used to always be pop3 but they said it's imap. I receive just fine just can't send. It worked on my old PC fine. Thanks!

Color significance of "Replied-to" and "Forwarded" icons

In the Thread pane (AKA 'Message List' pane), TB 102 precedes the Subject field with an angled arrow pointed to the left if the message has been Replied-to, and pointed to the right if it has been Forwarded. Those icons are combined into a third icon - with arrows pointing both left and right - when the post in question has been both Replied-to and Forwarded. All this is straightforward icon design: the third icon uses a combination of the first two icons to signify the combination of their respective meanings.

The icon colors are just the opposite. The Replied-to icon is purple and the Forwarded icon is blue, so we have 'Replied-to' icon= left-purple, AND 'Forwarded' icon = right-blue. BUT the combined 'Replied-to AND Forwarded' icon = left-blue AND right-purple. So the relationship of direction to color is not consistent, but inverted. Do these cross-attributes have any significance?

It was not always so. These attributes used to be applied with consistent, rather than inverted, meanings. A Mozillazine article shows an earlier version. The icons are different (the article vintage is TB 2.0, and much has been tweaked since then), but there the arrow colors and directions are mutually reinforcing {Replied: green-left; Forwarded: purple-right; Replied and forwarded: green-left and purple-right} - so the color and direction attributes coordinate to reinforce the functional significance.

How can I find the release notes covering the change in these icons, to see what significance is intended?

Hello, I have recently changed my Host and in the process of trying to reconfigure my server details for my new mail account I accidentally removed my account, thereby losing all mails and folders including my customer database, which leaves me feeling bereft.

Looking at similar questions it seems that it is possible to restore the lost mails and folders but unfortunately I am not that savy with this stuff and find it all rather difficult and scary.

Are there any step by step instructions on how I can restore my account or simply get access to my lost mails and folders ?

Thank you very much for any assistance.

Recently unable to initiate Facebook Messenger Voice Chat via FB website in Firefox

For the past few weeks I've been using Facebook's voice chat function to stay in touch with family. I did this using a dual boot laptop with, Ubuntu Linux 20.04.4 and Firefox 103, and Windows 10 with Firefox 101.1. I use the linux side 99.9% of the time.

I'd initiate a call by clicking on the FB Messenger icon, clicking on the name of the person I wanted to talk with, then clicking on the small phone handset icon. This would bring up a popup window with a picture of the other person, and the sound of a phone ringing followed by the other person answering my call.

This stopped working late last week (Thursday Aug 11th, I believe). Instead of a popup with the ringing phone, I began getting a popup with the message "Something went wrong. Try restarting Firefox or restarting your computer. For more troubleshooting suggestions, visit our Help Center. If the issue persists please let us know." I've attached a screenshot of the message.

This led me to a series of troubleshooting steps with no success: - clearing my browser cache and cookies - made sure my microphone was available for FB to use and was not muted - rebooting my laptop - doing a Firefox "Refresh", which creates a new Firefox profile while removing browser extensions and customizations - logging into a 2nd seldom used linux account I have on the same laptop and trying to initiate a voice chat in Firefox (no luck) - dual booting to Windows 10 and trying it with Firefox 101.1 (no success) - I also tried this on an older desktop pc running Ubuntu 16.04 and Firefox 88 (!). Also, no success and the exact same message as seen in the screenshot.

What I can also tell you is that in Linux I was able to initiate a FB voice chat call using the Brave and Chrome browsers, and in Windows was able to successfully initiate a call using MS Edge and Brave.

Based on this, it seems to be either a Firefox issue, or the nice folks at FB changed something that trips up only Firefox. Again, other browsers on two different OS platforms and a separate computer allow me to make these voice calls without issue.

I'd be glad to provide more information if you need it. I apologize if this was long winded, but I wanted to share as much detail as I could. Thank you very much for your time, and don't hesitate to contact me if I can provide any further information.

A little while ago I moved my email account from my ISP to Zoho. I've just notice that when I click on 'Properties' for any of the folders in my email account (Inbox, Sent etc.) the location is still listed as the old one, not my new provider. I wondered if this is why T'bird sometimes gets stuck at 100% when saving a sent message to the 'Sent' folder?

I see that there was a new version loaded yesterday so don't know if this relates. Starting today, when I open Firefox, it opens in a small screen in the upper left corner. I want it to open in full screen. I have to click twice to get the full screen. I do not mean the screen that F11 gives since I still want my tabs at the bottom. I have Windows 10 and Firefox 103.0.2.

I realize that this is an annoyance that has a workaround. I just want what I had yesterday. Thanks in advance for your help.

Downloaded the latest version of Thunderbird for my emails, which seems to have been a mistake.

I view my emails in full page mode, and when I 'delete' it the next email should open up (the one I received next)

But after the update, when I have read my email and click on 'delete' it reopens the former email ? which is useless.

Why is it doing this?

Hi. Been using TB for about 8 months and recently updated from version: 102.1.1 (I think) to current version: 102.1.2 (64-bit) Hopefully I'll get help with my SMTP problem that sometimes manifested itself some time ago, but now I can't send any mail for weeks with my most used mail account via my proximus server. However, we are able to send emails with our gmail accounts! Receiving emails works perfectly. When sending the mails, status message hangs on 'progress' for a long time and then gives an error message: "Sending message failed because outgoing (SMTP) server relay.proximus.be has failed. The server may be unavailable or may refuse SMTP connections. Check the settings

Tried unsuccessfully in the meantime:

  • Connections have been checked several times and are in order.
  • Sending mail via the web server itself: works!

Also tried to fix it by:

  • completely delete my proximus account in TB, reboot & then reinstall: same error message remains!
  • requested a new password via proximus server: no result.

Through 'troubleshooting mode' I get a new error message: "Your TB profile could not be loaded. It may not be present or inaccessible"

Already asked for help regarding the SMTP problems (which originally was the issue) but so far have not received any help. Soon I will have to stop TB because I have to send all mails via web server: not really workable anymore

Thanks

THUNDERBIRD I have great trouble trying to send large files and photos, which I seemed to need to send NOT as Attachments - (sometimes I then use "Filelink" or "Thunderbird Send" recently, but most of the time new Shops say that they "cannot open them" in recent times when I have used Thunderbird Send. For some contacts, Thunderbird Send works quite OK. I work with a Charity and I have used Thunderbird for ?25 years (with appropriate donations) - for a few years I remember I used BOX for large attachments.

What am I, presumably, 'NOT telling my contacts correctly', when I send large files to them by Th Send transfer for the first time!?? [I thought Th Send was going to solve all those changes I have had to make over the years to the large file issue!].

I just upgraded to version 102.1.2 and almost all is working fine. However, when I go to my Newsgroups I now need to enter Username and Password.

I have checked the "Use Password Manger to remember this password." It works for that time but then a few minutes later I need to do it all over again!!!

Then when I try to go to Tools>Options>Privacy & Security>Passwords the "Options" link does NOT exist!!!

In all the years of using Thunderbird this has never happened before on a Upgrade to a new version.

Is there a fix for this in another update or is there something I am missing??

Thanks,
