In Thunderbird 107.7.1 on my MacBook Pro with M1 chip - When attaching a pdf to an email getting ready to be sent I am not able to open it and check if the pdf file is in good shape. I use Adobe Acrobat Pro as my preferred pdf reader and this is associated in control panel. I always check pdf's prior to sending to make sure it is correct. As soon as I click on the pdf attachment in the ready to send email I get the following "File name - Cannot be opened because an unknown error occurred. Try saving to disk first and then opening the file." However, I am able to open pdf's with Acrobat Pro that are attached to emails that I receive without a problem. I have used Thunderbird for many years and this needs to be solved so I can do my business properly. Please advise as to how to get this corrected. Thank you. Bud

When I start Thunderbird (on Macbook), it asks for Primary password twice. How can I just have it ask once? It has done this for awhile, and earlier I think it asked 3 times for some releases. Using latest release.

Any help in debugging appreciated.

MAIN QUESTION How can I get rid of the ugly light-brown background in some incoming messages? All I want is a white background in incoming messages (both plain-text and HTML, unless the HTML code asks for a different background).


Thank you (after 10+ years) for finally making the font size adjustable in the folder and message pane. Also for finally fixing not easily being able to get out of numbering when forcing blank lines between numbered paragraphs.

I was actually very happy with version 60.x.x because I had a set of add-ons that working around most of the bugs and had an email client that did what I wanted. With the migration to the new add-ons internals, I lost most every behavior I needed/enjoyed.

In closing, if I can have a default white background/canvas on incoming email messages, I'll stay with T-bird. If not, I'm ready to give up on Thunderbird (after using it for 15 years) and trade it for the the boring stability of Outlook.

I know you are volunteer organization. So thank you for trying so hard for so many years.

(Don't know if logging into Mozilla gives you my email address. I'd prefer not to search for your reply, so I'd really appreciate a link sent to xxxx@gmail.com.

The best to everyone, jeff

I deleted a duplicate email but left the original in Thunderbird. The next time I downloaded emails from the server, the email that was a duplicate on Thunderbird was deleted from the server. Why?

I have Thunderbird setup to leave the emails on the server until I delete them. However, I only deleted a duplicate of an email. Should this have happened? If so, how can I avoid it if I want to clean up duplicate emails on Thunderbird? My mail server is a POP server, if that's important. And I'm using the Remove Duplicates addon

For all its idiosyncrasies, I have come to rely on Thunderbird for my considerable e-mail needs. This involves switching fairly regularly between my Inbox, Outbox and Draft folders since only their titles are/were displayed simultaneously.

Inadvertently, I clicked on something and they have now disappeared obliging me to select Go > Folder > Local Folders before another folder's index can be selected and seen.

PLEASE, how can one rectify this? I'll be very grateful for FOOL-PROOF step-by-step instructions.

Thank you.

When I delete a message, either by clicking delete when the message is open, or by marking several messages and hitting delete, the messages go *poof* and are never moved to trash or anything like that. So if I mistakenly delete a message, im screwed, its gone. Im using gmail, and so there seems to be a trash folder under inbox, and another trash folder under local folders, but both are always empty. The trash folder on gmail has items in it that I have deleted using the browser interface or phone app. How do I configure TBird to move deleted messages to trash, and synch that trash with the trash folder on gmail? I dont mind manually cleaning up trash every few weeks.

Hi - I've been trying to set up caldav and carddav ever since I deployed my iredmail server with sogo installed. I notice on my phone and through the sogo interface I can save cards, save calendar items, etc and observe them with no issues. On thunderbird windows 10 x64 102.7.0 (and earlier) I've not been able to see any items from caldav or carddav - even though the app seems to be aware of the connections and isn't complaining. For instance, I added a calendar item in thunderbird for a caldav acct and see the item in my phone, but not on my thunderbird calendar. Also, I see cards exist in my carddav acct in thunderbird, but the data is all blank. photo attached. I've triple checked the config, and everything looks good. Any ideas on where I should diagnose this further?

Thanks

eg. Move email from Inbox to a folder. Edit "undo move" > GONE from inbox !! Though removed from requested folder. Used to work, but not now !

Secondly - It was handy when the BOLD unread email REMAINED bold when sent to bin (I used to read at leisure) knowing they were not so important, then delete after read. NOW, once sent to bin, they are no longer bold, so not aware if read OR not. Nuisance indeed.

I've been happily using the feed from https://feeds.feedburner.com/LICD for quite a while, but in the last few days, suddenly Thunderbird 91.10.0 (64-bit) gives me the feed "is not authorized" error. Previous solution https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1166672 isn't working for me - Lightning is no longer an extension, so I can't deactivate it. I'd remove the calendar function entirely if I could - I don't use it.

Going to advanced preferences and pulling up calendar.useragent.extra gives me radio buttons to select Boolean, Number, or String with a plus sign to add it. Adding one doesn't fix it. Setting to false doesn't fix it. Deleting the one I added doesn't fix it. Right click only gives me Select All, which highlights all text on screen and does nothing.

Most of my other feeds are fine, and checking the website shows the RSS URL has not changed. I have read a couple of other complaints about this same issue, and, apparently there is a bug concerning this issue at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1694001 but it has been stalled for over two years.

Is anyone going to do something about this?

Can anyonte tell me how to add the OpenDocument (LibreOffice) mime types to Thunderbird?

When I get .odt attachments in my emails, I do not get an option to "Open" the file, or to "Choose which application to use" to open the file.

Is there a way to add these mime types? .odt, .ods, .odp, .odg

BTW ... One would think that, with +200 million LibreOffice users worldwide, these mime types would be part of the default mimes added to Thunderbird along with the others. It would send the notion that Thunderbird supports the open document formats as well as proprietary formats.

Thanks for any help with this.
