I just made a fres installation of 2012.12 on my Macbook, and the Thunderbird bundle is now crashing. I created a new user to check if it was due to anything I had in my .-files in home, but I had the same problem with this new user.
I'm using thunderbird-11 on ubuntu 12.04. Recently after an update suddenly thunderbird is no longer able to recognize my password and keeps asking for it with the message "login failed - retry". I know my password is correct because my calendar in thunderbird which uses the same password and my webmail is able to take that password.
I have to configure thunderbird with lightning addon. From what I read, lightning 0.9 no longer supports thunderbird 3 (or vice versa). Therefore, I would like to install thunderbird 2. I've tried several ways, but always I get the 3.0 or 3.0b version. Can anybody help me instal thunderbird 2 ? Any help would be appreciated, thank you.
I did an upgrade from 11.1 -> 11.3 and I find myself locked out of Thunderbird. I was hoping I could downgrade to Thunderbird 2.x in 11.3 but that doesn't seem possible. I just don't get the double-passwords needed for the new Thunderbird. Is it really as hard as I'm making it? It's asking for a password that I never set. Help! Patti
Good night. The title is self-explanatory: I'm trying to set my emails on thunderbird but I keep getting the same error message: "Thunderbird failed to find the settings for your email account." I saw another thread of two people with the same problem but I couldn't find the solution to this problem. I'm sure I'm writting correctly my profiles. Thanks for your help.
I attempted to install The Lightning plugin for Thunderbird. I do this by going to Tools -> Add-ons. I search for Lightning and click "Add to Thunderbird". Then I get a popup asking me if I want to open or save this .xpi file. If I click open, then Thunderbird opens a new email address with the .xpi file attached.
