I can't get my comcast.net account to work since installing 115.12.2. Is there a way to go back and install the previous version of Thunderbird. I've tried comcast's support and that have not had any success in helping me. The previous version worked fine.

Dear support, I got an e-mail from Microsoft, that they're not gonna allow regular password authentification coming September and I've had trouble connecting one of my two hotmail.com-accounts for months now (the apparently common problem where it claims that the password is incorrect - which it isn't). I thought, it's a perfect opportunity to fix both these issued by getting the OAuth2 thing to work. I'm on Windows 11 using TB 115.12.2 I can't get it to work : ( I did all the steps in this article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/microsoft-oauth-authentication-and-thunderbird-202 except that I couldn't select OAuth2 for my former smpt outgoing server (sorry if I'm using these words wrong, I really have no expertise in this area) "smtp-mail.outlook.com" - it's not in the dropdown menu. I tried forcing it in over the confid editor (which worked, I mean, I could open the pop-up again and it would have the OAuth2 selected), but no mails. I tried to instead just put in that office365 server that is given in all the examples (since I don't know how anything works, I thought I'd give it a try). There I could regularly select the OAuth2, but it still didn't work. I should get some pop-up or browser-thing or something to do this fun verification thing but I don't and I really don't know what to do.. I tried resetting everthing back to it's former state but now my main hotmail-account also has the wrong-password-problem... : (( Do you have any good ideas? Thank you in advance and have a good day Charlie

I'm having a problem where on a default installation of firefox (on linux mint 21) where Settings > Privacy & Security > History is always set to "Use custom settings for history" when I restart firefox. This is a default installation. Even if I do the folowing...

1 Close firefox 2 Remove the /home/myname/.mozilla folder 3 Start firefox and change Privacy & Security > History to "Remember history" 4 Close and restart firefox

The Settings > Privacy & Security > History is always reset to "Use custom settings for history" even on a DEFAULT install. I realize that this is because there is a history/cookie setting that is NOT the default, but I didn't set any non-defaults. This is a default installation with a brand new profile. Any ideas what could be causing this?

If anyone can help me with this, I'd appreciate it:

Any anyone ever had Thunderbird Email Filter REALLY work? I never have.

- Some emails do get sent to my Junk Folder (where I have it assigned to go to). - Some emails are noted as Junk, but not filtered to the Junk Folder (please see Image). - Some emails are still coming thru as normal emails, with no notification.

I've added an Image of how I set the Email Filter for every SPAM email.

Thank you in advance.

Have been using Firefox for many years with no issues , very happy. Recently i've just starting having trouble playing video on youtube and audio from some sources. wondering if there is a possible problem with the most recent update to vers. 128 as the timeframe seems to jive. when starting a youtube vid. i get a message saying if video doesn't play try restarting your computer. at first this seemed to work but has been getting progressively worse to where multiple restarts do not work. If i switch to a different browser , no problem , everything plays fine , however i do not want to switch permanently to a different browser. Prefer to continue with FireFox

I got an email from Microsoft saying my Live.com or Outlook.com email accounts won't be supported in Thunderbird UNLESS I change the settings to OAuth2 in incoming and outgoing server settings.

I even REMOVED the email account and re-added it making sure it was OAuth2.

But for my live.com & outlook.com email accounts I continually get prompts for passwords from Thunderbird. Sometimes I can't even click the RED X at the upper right to shut the prompt down. I just happens over and over until I give it what it wants.

I am tempted to shut down all Microsoft email accounts and switch to Gmail.

I have Thunderbird version 115.12.2 (64-bit) I used Windows 11 23H2 build 22631.3810 Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22700.1020.0

Any idea how to stop these prompts?

I like Thunderbird much more than any other email program I have ever used, and would like to keep it

If I type in sign up for AAA roadside assis that is where I should be sent correct well not so much... this happens on every browser at least once a day that without any notice or a confirm to enter site prompt we land where someone wants us to land without our consent. I used AAA because as it happens to be a true story I searched AAA ROADSIDE ASST. And literally bought a lifetime service of " GOOD SAM " roadside asst. Without even realizing it wasn't AAA thankfully Good Sam turned out to be a decent service but I get opted into stuff all the time because whoever redirects me to fit their agenda. Not cool, not right should not be allowed.
