1. I had firefox in a 64bit win7 proff with relatively high specs desktop forever. Last week it started showing update notification every time i restart firefox and I choose to "remind me later" or something like that (I made the settings so that it won't auto install).

2. During that week i did restart firefox and the computer and everything was normal untill yesterday when I did something normal but I rarely do, that is i turned of the computer for more than a minute and then turned it back on. Then firefox started having trouble loading certain webpages. Things like youtube, google maps, google search, bing home page, were flawless, while things like some businesses (i remember craigslist and goodwill) and some famous podcast webpages and my wifi controlled devices struggle (take too long, then message that they were taking too long, but never show up)

3. I first "refreshed" my firefox, then reinstalled it, then when it wasn't fixed deleted the whole thing and tried installing a fresh downloaded version (I think it was 83). The downloaded installer tells me that i already had firefox and if i wish to reinstall it and after that it takes a long time to throw a message at me that starts with ("hmmmm" for "some" reason unknown reason, the installation failed to work) or very similar wording.

4. The only browser left in the computer is the microsoft one that comes with the computer and it does open the modzilla website but refuses to download the installed (obviously) so i have to download it from a windows tablet and transfer it to this computer.

any advice/insight is very much welcome

I installed Darko ("Simple dark mode for your Thunderbird messages.") but it only changes the theme in the main window/tab of Thunderbird. E.g. If I try to reply to mail in a new window or open the add-ons manager, it is not enabled there. There is no button like in the main tab with a moon symbol and Darko written next to it.

How can I enable this add-on anywhere? Or what do I need to have a dark theme EVERYWHERE in Thunderbird?

I recently installed the latest Slackware on a new computer. In order to migrate my thunderbird account from the old computer to the new one, I copied my the files under .thunderbird: profile gfwo444i.default, installs.ini, and profiles.ini into the .thunderbird directory on my new computer. However, when I started thunderbird, it did not show any of my local emails nor my address book. I also tried starting the thunderbird profilemanager to pick my profile. This also had no effect. What am I doing wrong?

I followed the instructions for migrating my Thunderbird profile and its data to my new computer. It took me a few tries, but I eventually got my email up. All seemed fine.

I shut down my PC normally, and the following day tried to start Thunderbird. All I got was a red box containing the line: <window id = messengerWindow" <pre> next line: ^

with the Thunderbird logo in the upper left corner and nothing else.

There was nothing I could do but uninstall Thunderbird, delete all the associated data from my PC, reinstall and re-migrate my profile. It worked ok for one day, booting up normally and loading Thunderbird normally, but today I had the red box and general nothingness again.

Has anybody had this problem and is there a solution? It's a real pain to have to keep uninstalling and reinstalling. I'm on a Windows 10 PC, nothing unusual about my file system.

Hi -

I have Thunderbird on a Mac OS 10.15.5. I have several POP accounts with Zoho. Suddenly one account stopped working. It is fine on the Zoho web platform, but not with Thunderbird. We tried resetting the password and tried setting it up on another computer, still no luck. An odd thing is that when I run the "test" for configurations I get an ok, as per attached. Then when I hit "done" I get a message that it can't connect to the server, see other attached.

This is really frustrating. We have been using Thunderbird for at least fifteen years, I think. This is the first major issue that we have had.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks - Rob

Thunderbird Email Problem After the last update to Ver# 78.4.0 my Thunderbird email software is not performing properly. I believe this occurred on October 28, 2020.

What works: • I have no problem loading Thunderbird • I am receiving emails and the filters I have created are working fine, placing emails in the appropriate places. • The last sent email was on 10/19/20

What is not working: • I cannot access nor open my Addressbook, both Personal and History. • I cannot send emails. The Send button is not activated. • I cannot reply to existing emails. I have clicked on reply, typed the message I wished to add and again, Send is not an option available. I have tried many things on your Support site, as well as other help posts on the Internet but to no avail. I have looked at my Profile and all appears to be fine but Thunderbird does not appear to be looking at it for preparation of outgoing emails. I did try creating a new Addressbook as someone noted and it I did see it in my Profile but I cannot save nor retrieve any email addresses I try to put in it. Help please.

Hi! More than a month ago, I realised that my firefox nightly version is few months old. It couldn't update itself, everytime I tried to use update function, after restarting browser it didn't udpate and it didn't even restart, just close itself. So I downloaded latest version from mozilla site to update. But now I remembered that moment and checked what version I have. Guess what, it's that version I downloaded back then. And I can't update it still. I don't know what the error is, but I know what it's connected to it. Every time I open firefox I have to open it double. First opening does literally nothing, and I have to open it 2nd time to open it.

A piece of software I need to use for work requires an older version of Firefox (Firefox 68.4.2 ESR) to run, so in the past, I've had to delete Firefox and re-download the older version which has worked fine. However, I recently got a new Mac and now when I try the same thing it's not working. Whenever I first open Firefox after downloading it, it opens as the correct (older) version, however it does not seem to be able to connect to the internet and I get the spinning wheel that never ends, and then whenever I close out of Firefox and reopen it, it automatically updates to the newest version. I have multiple times gone into the settings on Firefox and changed my preferences to check with me before installing updates and I've gone into the settings of the App Store to make sure it's not automatically updating any apps or programs. My computer is currently running OS version 11.1 (Big Sur) and I'm wondering if maybe this version is too new to be compatible with Firefox 68 ESR? Any help, ideas, or advice is greatly appreciated!

I routinely migrate Thunderbird between Linux Mint and Windows 10. Several times the process needed tweaking and this forum was there to help. Now I want to research if the use of the OpenPGP features of Thunderbird will make a migration from Linux to Windows or vice versa any more complex. Appreciate your thoughts and experiences.

I run Firefox in portable mode in Windows 10. It works wonderfully. However, when i click on web links outside of FF, it loads Chrome. So in FF I go to options and set it as a default. In "default apps" it shows up there. But Because I am running FF portable, by setting it as default browser, it creates a new profile on c:\users\username . And loads a whole new instance of FF. That is not what I would like to happen.

Is there a way to set it up so that when I click a link in an email, it will load the FF from the portable instance? using the profile within the portable directory. Usually I always have FF open. It is never closed.
