Recently (past 2 weeks) it takes a very long time for an email message to "send". Once in a while it will be almost normal speed but it might take as long as 20 seconds or more to send. Incoming seems fine and everything else seems to be working. My gmail a/c is very fast as are all other sites when loading. Has something happened recently that would cause this? Thanks so much for your help. mac a.

This is to re-open thread 1296678.

I too have this problem, I suspect a failure mode and I have a work-around.

I'm now on TB 91.8.1 build 20220413002405 but this has been going on for at least 4 years - I reported it (here, I think) some years back but no one did a fix so I built the work-around.

For context purposes I now have over 4G of mailboxes going back to at least 1993 so not easy to do housekeeping. I started using TB in approx 2011 and imported the old mail from my Eudora installation at that time, meaning 8 years of use before the problem started. I also used Thunderpunger before the author ended support(and it doesn't work now) and I have noticed some odd artefacts coming from its use, primarily whole (very old) mail boxes suddenly appearing as "new". The mail boxes are nested to at least 8 deep in some places. I also have about 40 active filters. The installation is still using POP3 and fetches mail every 5 mins. The filters were all set to run on fetching new mail and essentially file the messages in different places. The point is that it is a substantial chunk of files. Nice and efficient (not) but its what I use.

The filters started failing in approx 2019 in that on a mail fetch an error message saying "unable to access mailbox blah" would appear. This appeared to be worst at system start-up when the overnight mail was streamed in. This was a pain because you have to click "ok" each time the warning box popped up. I also noticed that when the filters ran successfully they all worked ok. At first this seemed to always be certain mail boxes but there were no problems with the file system. In fact I followed the suggested remedies when I posted the thread in the support forum without improvement. I also attempted deleting the mailboxes and making new ones elsewhere in the mail system and thus in the file system but the problem persisted. It looks like TB is running out of resources during the pass on "run filters when fetching new mail" when this runs the first time on boot, but not subsequently.

The work around was to switch off all the flags saying "run on fetching new mail" and instead "run [on inbox] every 10 minutes". The problem is now completely absent.

Over to you guys

Hi,

I have a strange problem with Thunderbird (currently 91.8.1 on Linux, but have this problem for a while). Initially (i.e. after each reboot) Thunderbird works normally but at some point when I start Thunderbird all I can see in the folders list are one entry for each account (see attached screenshot). I can still edit account details. But the only way to make it work again is to reboot my system. Just logging out and in is not sufficient. I tried to start Thunderbird in safe mote or to get some log details but nothing helped or got me a step further.

Today I experienced something new. I worked with Thunderbird and didn't close it (and also didn't suspend or hibernate the system). At some point when I wanted to visit the sent-item-folder I got an error message (unfortunately I didn't make a screenshot) that the folder couldn't be loaded. Then I couldn't open any folder. After restarting Thunderbird I had the problem of above.

Hope someone has an idea how to fix this.

On May 20, 2022, in a few days, Google will turn off "unsecure access" to Gmail from Thunderbird and Outlook. This will require changing the Thunderbird account settings from "Normal Password" to "OAuth2" for verification. Problem is OAuth2 verification will not work on my Windows 7 laptop. It just runs in circles. A Google page opens, asks my Google account password, accepts it, and then shows a page asking to allow access to the account. Saying yes just closes the window, but no mail gets POPed down to Thunderbird. In my testing, OAuth2 does work on my Windows 10 laptop. If you are as stubborn as me about still using the Win7 computer, you can change your Google account to use 2-factor verification. They will call you or text you every time you log in to the Google account itself, or you can buy a USB dongle. Once you have 2FA setup, you can go to the "Security" sidebar in your Google account, and create an "app password". I said "Mail" and "Windows Computer" and it generates a 16-letter password shown as all caps, but when cut-and-pasted in my Keepass password manager is all small case. You can then go back to, or stay at "Normal Password" in your Thunderbird account settings, and when the password to your Google account fails, put in the app password and check "Remember in Password manager". Then you can POP emails from Gmail again. I don't know if Outlook has these problems. I assume IMAP on Win 7 might have these problems. I did create a new T-bird profile just to try this out. I detailed that misery quest in a previous post: "Almost can get Gmail with 2FA" https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1369836

The sad thing is my Google password is 15 characters alpha mixed with numeric, I assume case sensitive, and also special characters. So it is much more secure than the app password Google assigned me. Especially more secure now that hackers know our email password is 16 alpha non-case-sensitive. Oh well, that's Google for you. Don't blame them, blame the idiots that set their passwords to Password1.

After figuring out this with the new test Google accounts I made, I just switched one of my three "real" Gmail accounts to 2FA, and an app password for mail. If I read right, if you try to outsmart the system and drop out of Google 2FA, it also invalidates all your app passwords as well.

It would be nice if the T-bird team could see why OAuth2 verification fails in Win7. I posted results in my T-bird error console in that previous post. I hope this is a weird thing that only affects me, but just in case, I thought I would post this for other Win7 dinosaurs out there.

Since latest update:

If I receive an Excel spreadsheet (either .xls or .xlsx) or a Word document (.docx) as an attachment in Thunderbird it will only open in Read Only mode. There is no way to give permission to open/view. I can save it & then open and it is fine but I cannot simply open the attachment directly without it being in Read only mode. I cannot uncheck the Properties "Read Only" check box because it is greyed out.

Similar problem applies to jpegs where you can't rotate the opened attachment (ie this opens in a kind of non-editing mode too)

The yellow security "Permission" bar that one clicked to "accept/view" is no longer appearing. (Sorry I don't know what to call this function or how to properly describe it)

Something seems to be preventing this yellow bar showing so I cannot click to "give permission to edit" or "accept the content" or whatever the appropriate permission/acceptance is

Is this a config issue ?

This problem does not occur if opening from webmail or Windows Live Mail, it applies only on Thunderbird.

Same issue on Windows 7 (yes I know it is not supported) and Windows 10. I have Thunderbird 91.9.0 (release update channel) on both (Two laptops).

I have several email accounts and the issue occurs with any email account and whether POP3 or IMAP. Also with Word/Excel/jpeg attachments to emails stored in Local Folders which used to open fine.

This problem has only arisen following latest update (91.9.0).

I have tried opening in Troubleshoot (Safe) Mode with add-ons disabled and the problem still exists.

Can anyone tell me what to do about this please ? How can I make Thunderbird allow direct opening of an attachment in normal editing mode as it used to do ? How do I get the yellow bar back please ?

What, if anything, do I change in config editor to make the yellow bar reappear ?

Would appreciate help please as this is giving me a major headache & upset

Thanks

Hello,

In January, after what I believe to be compacting issue, I lost years worth of emails in my Sent Folder. It just happened again, although I cannot seem to confirm that this is due to a compacting error this time.

After a lot of research and trying a great many solutions, nothing has worked. I cannot recover my lost emails.

I have tried the "repair folder" method.

I have tried the "delete the index (.msf file)" method.

The "Sent" file that accompanies the "Sent.msf" file is quite small; smaller than it should be.

I am worried these emails are gone forever, but I don't know the cause.

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you!

Hello, all.

Ever since I upgraded Thunderbird to 91.9.0 (64-bit), it has been freezing consistently and repeatedly - upon startup, and every 30 minutes, it freezes for approximately 5 minutes and 40 seconds. Then it unfreezes and works fine. But then 24 minutes and 20 seconds later, it freezes once again, going "Not Responding" in Windows 10.

When it freezes, Thunderbird uses 12-16% of my CPU, and memory usage steadily climbs, going up 0.1-0.2Mb each second, and goes back down to normal on the unfreeze.

Now, what have I done? It still happens in Troubleshooting mode. It happens in Troubleshooting mode while Windows is in Safe Mode With Networking. Adding an exception in my antivirus (NOD32) did nothing, as did turning off Allow Windows Search Messages in Advanced. Turning off Check For New Messages in Account settings does nothing. Nothing consistent shows up in the Error Console either, but I'm not a coder, so don't really know what to look for.

Ideas?

Thanks.

Here's something I've never seen in more than 20 years of using Thunderbird. It's more of an aggravation than anything else, but I'm asking about it because I hope it's not a sign of something more serious:

I receive: "Sending of the message failed. The message could not be sent because the connection to Outgoing server (SMTP) smtp.office365.com timed out. Try again."

But the message does send. This happens mostly with my Hotmail account, but also sometimes with either of my two Gmail accounts.

This started after an update to Thunderbird; one of the v. 91 updates, I think. None of my settings changed and I've done nothing different to the Thunderbird settings in years. I'm running Thunderbird on Xubuntu 20.04, 64 bit, and the current Thunderbird is 91.9.0.

Any thoughts? And thanks for your help.

The problem reported in thread 1322371 has started for this build (previously never seen) with the same symptom and work around. However, although I haven't really been scrupulous observing and analysing, I get the sense that it is manifesting itself only on the inbox. I have a mail system of over 4G of mailboxes now and there are some mailboxes that have quite a large number of messages in. It looks like the problem only happens with the inbox. Also looking at the old thread (people reporting all messages disappearing) I find that the messages disappear after using the quick filter (1. insert a string into quick filter, hit enter; 2. Do something with the shorter list of messages (read, move, delete etc); 3. all messages disappear; 4. (work around) click on another mail box then back to inbox: all messages reappear.
