I would like to hide the "Switch to the calendar tab" and "Switch to the tasks tab" toolbar buttons that appear in the Thunderbird 91 top bar (title bar?).

I've tried the methods suggested for prior Thunderbird versions that employ userChrome.css, and they do not work.

Is it possible to hide these toolbar items?

I have been using Outlook for my email accounts, including Gmail, but would like to install Thunderbird as Gmail soon will no longer work with my version of Outlook. In the Mozilla support article "How to add your Gmail account to Thunderbird", it says that after configuring the account, "Thunderbird will download your existing messages and your Gmail will be ready to use." Will Thunderbird at that stage download every message in Gmail's inbox? My problem is that I have thousands of old messages in Gmail as have never accessed Gmail from my browser but from my email programs (Outlook Express, Win Liive Mail, Outlook) where I store messages in folders and delete whatever is not needed. If Thunderbird is, by default, going to download everything in Gmail, are there any options to limit this by date or any other criteria. Thank you for any help. Scotch

I have used Eudora for years, about 20 or more. Now I find myself with a dilemma. A secure email program I signed up for must have ports assigned to incoming and outgoing servers. Alas, not possible with Eudora, but possible with Thunderbird.

However, after reading several of the threads of migrating to Thunderbird from Eudora, it appears to be problematic--new addons, missing mailboxes, etc. It's hard to tell whether that's the norm or the exception. One of the threads I read was https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1228297 "Migrate Eudora mail to Thunderbird mail", which suggests starting with Thunderbird 17.0. That thread is from 3-1/2 years ago. Is this still the best way to migrate? Or is one of the Thunderbird migration tools a better and safer option.

I have literally thousands of saved emails and dozens of separate mailboxes and I don't want to lose them.

I have set up a new server for all my web sites, including the domain I use for e-mails. I have changed the nameservers and e-mails are going to the mailbox on the new server. The e-mail address remains unchanged. I now want to set up an account on TB to access these e-mails. I've gone through the 'Add Mail Account' procedure, to the point where TB tells me 'incoming server already exists' and I can get no further. Do I need to delete the old account in TB and start again? I can do this, of course, but it means setting up a whole lot of preferences over again, which I'm hoping ot avoid.

Please tell me how to make the apps coordinate again. When I click a link in an email, FireFox Nightly opens the link. When I attempt to return to TB, it is not in the task bar and Alt Tab does not show it. Task Manager shows TB but Switch To is greyed out. If I attempt to return to N, it is not in the task bar, is in TM and Switch To is greyed out. Both are fully updated, I ran SFC /scannow which did not find corruption.

Lost IMAP & SMTP connections between Thunderbird and Gmail

I have lost my IMAP and SMTP connections between Thunderbird v91.9.0 on Windows 10 and two Gmail accounts. One is a standard @gmail.com account and the other is an @my_domain account on Google Workspace. The experience is (almost) the same on both.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

When I try to read IMAP mail through Thunderbird, I'm presented with a pop-up (apparently from Google) to log into the gmail account with the email address pre-populated in the "Enter your email" field. Curiously, the email address for the Google Workspace account is broken into two parts with the user name left justified in the field, the @my_domain right justified and a gap between them. This is not true for the standard @gmail.com account, where the field is prepopulated with a left justified username@gmail.com. I click the "Next" button and an "Enter your password pop-up (apparently from Google) appears, into which I enter the password and click "Next".

Then I see a pop-up (apparently from Google) which says "Mozilla Thunderbird Email wants to access your Google Account", with "Allow" and "Cancel" buttons. I click "Allow" and often (but not always) see a small pop-up (apparently from Thunderbird) which says "Authentication failure while connecting to server imap.gmail.com".

The experience on the sending side through SMTP is similar. Upon clicking "Send" in Thunderbird, I'm presented with the same sequence of pop-ups (apparently from Google) to enter Google user name, password and permission to allow Thunderbird to access my email. Then there is a "sending message" pop-up (apparently from Thunderbird) which never completes.

Here are what I think are the relevant Thunderbird settings --

 Thunderbird settings for user@my_domain.com
   IMAP server: imap.gmail.com        
   IMAP port: 993        
   User name: user@my_domain.com        
   Connection security: SSL/TLS        
   Authentication method: OAuth2        
               
   SMTP server: smtp.gmail.com        
   SMTP port: 465
   Connection security: SSL/TLS        
   Authentication method: OAuth2        
   User name: user@my_domain.com        
           
 Thunderbird settings for user@gmail.com
   IMAP server: imap.gmail.com        
   IMAP port: 993        
   User name: user@gmail.com        
   Connection security: SSL/TLS        
   Authentication method: OAuth2        
               
   SMTP server: smtp.gmail.com        
   SMTP port: 465
   Connection security: SSL/TLS        
   Authentication method: OAuth2        
   User name: user@gmail.com        
               
 Thunderbird Preferences            
   Accept cookies from sites: Checked        
   Accept third-party cookies: Always        
   Exceptions: https:accounts.google.com -- Allow        

Here are what I think is the relevant Gmail setting --

  IMAP is enabled
