Hello, My Thunderbird 32bit installation upon Microsoft 10 64bit installation just upgraded itself to 7.2.2 and produced a severe performance problem after initial startup. The response to attempts to navigate through the folders is very slow. The Microsoft Task Manager shows that Thunderbird is constantly busy 15-20% Cpu usage and flashes of 'Not responding' although the program has nothing to download.

There 4 accounts configured (3 imap and one pop3) and there are lots of folders with stored emails. There is one Lightening calendar configured.

The performance issue continues for about 10 minutes and then disappears so the system becomes as responsive as it was before the upgrade i.e. instantaneous.

I cannot tell you what release I was on before the upgrade. Any suggestions Patrick

Hi: For the past 1 week I'm trying to DOWNGRADE my Thunderbird Ver 78 to previous Ver 68, and have reviewed probably most of ALL the 'hundreds' articles involving this issue but it CLEARLY LOOKS that a large amount of users, including myself, have founded this process extremely confusing: I was able to download & install my previous 68-version of Thunderbird BUT I'm missing all bookmarks + messages + and General 68-Ver Settings (!), and I still do NOT entirely understand & know how to properly/correctly restore my original Thunderbird Ver 68 settings ...

The ENORMOUS ABUNDANCE of articles are greatly written BUT unfortunately very confusing for users who are NOT as 'deeply-knowledgeable' with Thunderbird as the experienced MOZILLA-experts so - could anyone from the great MOZILLA-experts put together and send us the 'step-by-step' instructions ONLY specifically related to 'Recover user data missing after Thunderbird update'. I strongly suggest NOT to just sending several links because this approach is not an effective HELP, and it mostly just results in further confusion of users. In advance - many thanks to ALL for your understanding and for helping us to make the great Thunderbird even better ...! Tony H.

Hello.

I'm using Thunderbird for many years. After a recent upgrade from version 68.x.x to 78.x.x the application crashes when reading some advertsing mails that contain many pictures. With oldest versions the mail opened immediatly, and pictures seemed to be loaded while scrolling. With last versions, the window stucks, displaying that it's loading the message. I've tried to switch from the 32 bits version to 64 bits one, but it doesn't change anything. I can observe that my consumed memory when Thunderbird is started is about 1.2 GB, and just after opening such a mail, it reaches almost 4 GB which is my total installed memory. Three times of four, the application crashes, or the main windows disappears and lets a zombie process with almost all the allocated memory...

An idea ? Thanks.

Regards.

Good morning,

I'm having an issue regarding Thunderbird, that I couldn't find solution to anywhere. I'm using Thunderbird in notebook connected to a domain. It work flawless, i can add my gmail/gsuite account, there is a popup that lets me log in and everything works. However i tried to do the exact same thing on VM PC connected to same domain, and i get "Unable to log in at server. Propably wrong configuration, username or password." Error. Using the same version of the software, in the same domain, same antivirus settings and so on. This is a fresh installation there, so i cannot remove existing password as suggested in diffrent posts, and all the solutions/workarounds found elsewhere doesn't work for me. I even checked if the popups in browser are "enabled".

Please help!

I have always had challenges getting the recommended CPANEL server settings to work in Thunderbird. However, I managed to have them working fine until this week, after we had an issue with malware on our site, which was removed. We have all also had to completely reset our PCs due to this virus.

Now, I had to use truly bizarre settings (compared to the recommendations) in order to get Thunderbird to work with my emails.

However, some of my team cannot get their OUTGOING mail to work at all, no matter what setting we have tried. We have exhausted our creativity, research, and troubleshooting with Godaddy.

Attached are: 1 the settings recommended in Godaddy CPANEL, 2 the incoming and outgoing settings I got to work for me.

Any thoughts?

Hi!

New member here.

Through Mozilla Thunderbird, I currently have access to three different e-mail addresses (in/outgoing mail). One of these e-mail addresses will be deleted soon by the service provider, so I´m forwarding all relevant messages to my Gmail address. Will these forwarded messages continue to be available in my Gmail inbox through Thunderbird? Or would it be better to forward messages to my Hotmail? Which is best for saving e-mails for a long time, Gmail or Hotmail?

Also, my service provider says that this email address will be deleted and unavailable by logging in through the provider´s site. So, will this e-mail address still be available through Thunderbird, or will it be deleted there also?

Many thanks in advance if someone could please share info about this!

Hello, guys

How can I resize the columns to make stars and attachment icons visible? I don't know what's happened and to say the truth I didn't notice when it started to look like this. I'm using Thunderbird 68.12.0 with no extensions. I tried resetting the columns, restarting in safe mode and resetting the controls - nothing helps.

Thank you in advance.

P.S. I've figured out. I'm using chrome CSS like this to make the header bar of another color otherwise it is white and I always click the header by mistake making the wrong sort order:

treecol, .treecol-image { -moz-appearance: none !important; background-color: peachpuff !important; }

What should I edit here to make the columns great again? :)

When I opens Thunderbird, I sometimes have a problem with the sending/receiving screen (once a few days). The problem is that the upper part of the screen disappear. I can not perform some of the operation on the screen because some of the icons on the upper part of the screen disappears. When the above problem occurs, I have the same problem with the explore screen of Windows 10 (the upper part of the explore screen disappears, which also causes a problem to me).

I am not sure this problem is a matter of Thunderbird or Windows 10. 

This problem has occurred for around two weeks. I can not find any specific reason for the problem. To solve the problem, I reinstalled the latest Thunderbird (ver. 78.3.2 (32 bit)), but the problem still exists. The screen recovers after PC is shut down and started again, but the problem occurs again after a while. I can not find when the problem occurs. It seems to me that the problem occurs suddenly. Please give me a suggestion for the solution. PS I can further send the screen with the problem as a attached document to someone who sends me a helping e-mail (for easy understanding what the problem is). Naoki Tsukamura

Hi there,

I'm using Thunderbird version 78.3.2 which appears to be the latest version and ever since updating from I'm not sure which version, I've been having frequent issues with forwarded emails. Often the recipient of the forward complains that they can't see the contents of the forward because it is missing. I believe I have isolated this to Thunderbird corrupting some parts of the original email as it forwards it.

I've attached part of the HTML source of one of the messages I've had a problem with. I can see that in the original message that I received there is a proper style block with the html comment code

I've tried several times but I just get stumped every time. Can someone walk me through the process of creating a new profile in v.78, then importing, or somehow transferring, all my old mails and contacts into the new version? Thank you!

My iMac is fried, unrecoverable... but I was able to save the whole Thunderbird folder containing Crash Reports, installs.ini, Pending Pings, Profiles and profiles.ini which I believe is everything, all my emails and accounts etc.

I have transferred the data to a Mac Pro running Mojave on a spare drive. I have installed a Thunderbird on my Mac Pro. I have tried numerous fixes but I couldn't get Thunderbird to see my emails, and it would start with Welcome and Set Up Existing Email Address which isn't what I want, but having tried a few ways I have become unsuccessfully familiar.

I have tried http://kb.mozillazine.org/Moving_your_profile_folder_-_Thunderbird "Nothing you do works" (but I think it was referring to Windows so that's not good ;) by completely deleting the profiles.ini file, starting Thunderbird and thus creating a new profile, copying the "contents" of my of my Profiles/ui1yf25m.default folder and replacing the data over the top of the newly created Profile (which has nothing of worth in it) but it keeps the newly created working Profile folder intact thus Thunderbird should see the data and load all my emails and accounts - but it didn't.

The newly created profiles.ini file had 0dcrwgtx.default (which I moved all my files into) plus it had izoic061.default-release (so 2 profiles stumped me).

Wiling to try anything :) John

I discovered that E-mail suddenly from my sister started to go directly to the junk file. I've moved them to the inbox several times, but each time within a few minutes the same E-mails disappear from inbox and go back to junk file.

Problem: Occasionally I need to refer to emails from a few weeks ago, or a few years ago, and once in a while I can't find the email I'm looking for. These are emails I know to exist (from a print-out, or from quoted material in another email), but they no longer appear in my Inbox or any of my local boxes.

I do not have whole months or years of missing emails, just random emails here and there that I can no longer find. They're not in Trash, not Archived -- just not there any more.

Any idea what might be happening here?
