OpenSUSE :: Thunderbird 3.0.9 Fails With Gnome Under 11.1

Oct 29, 2010

I am running MozillaThunderbird-3.0.9-0.3.1 under gnome-desktop-2.24.1-2.18.1 on OpenSUSE 11.1. Up to about a month or so ago, I was using the latest version of Thunderbird 2.x, but an OpenSUSE update updated it to Thuderbird 3.0.9 and I've had troubles ever since.

Just to make sure that it wasn't a problem related to any plugins, I disabled all the plugins I was using, but the problem still persists.The problem I have is as soon as I reply to any message in any of my Inboxes, I can no longer view any other message--read or unread, in either the main view window or in a separate tab. This behavior is repeatable with about 90% consistency.

My speculation is that the is some strange interaction going on between Thunderbird and something else. It's hard for me to believe that this is the way that Thunderbird behaves on all operating systems as I'm sure the Thunderbird developers would have fixed it and most likely if would have been picked up by the OpenSUSE team. But hey, I could be wrong.

I'm not even sure if this is the right place to report this. But it's very annoying as the only way I've found to correct it is to restart Thunderbird.Anyhow, I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this or heard about behavior like this. If so, what did you do to resolve it?

P.S.- I tried to search this site but found too many hits for "thunderbird 3" to be useful.

Ubuntu :: (GNOME) Thunderbird For Two Users - "Thunderbird Is Already Running But Is Not Responding"

Sep 9, 2010

I run version 10.04 GNOME. My problem is (after substantial searching) that I need to have both users ('juliusz' and 'sarah') running Thunderbird but with the same profile (settings, email, accounts etc. preferably of 'juliusz'). The only results on the internet are share Thunderbird between Windows and Ubuntu.

I have two users juliusz and sarah. I need either of them to have the same profile, always in synch whenever they logon to own account. When I tried to edit sarah's /home/sarah/.mozilla-thunderbird/profile.ini by inserting: Path=/home/juliusz/.mozilla-thunderbird/xxxxxxx.default after i run Thunderbird for 'sarah' I get message: "Thunderbird is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Thunderbird process, or restart your system." I checked with "ps aux" there is no Thunderbird running in sarah's session. There is no Thunderbird running in juliusz's session when I reloged to juliusz.

Fedora :: Closing Thunderbird 3.0b4 Fails To End Processes?

Oct 12, 2009

since updating from thunderbird 3.0b3 to 3.0b4, thunderbird no longer closes properly when using file - quit. the windows close but the processes are left running and i have to kill them. it does this in normal mode and safe mode however, if i move my .thunderbird directory out of the way and set up an account from scratch it seems to work ok but i don't really want to have to fully reconfigure everything from scratch. how to identify the offending setting/addon/etc. ?

Fedora :: Thunderbird Update Fails On Every Attempt In F12

Nov 4, 2010

I'm running F12 and Package Updater has been telling me to update Thunderbird for two days but fails on every attempt. I tried to go the yum route today with
yum remove thunderbird
yum install thunderbird

And I get this error:
Error: Package: thunderbird-3.0.10-1.fc12.i686 (updates)
Requires: nss >= 3.12.8
Installed: nss-3.12.7-6.fc12.i686 (@updates)
nss = 3.12.7-6.fc12
Available: nss-3.12.4-14.fc12.i686 (fedora)
nss = 3.12.4-14.fc12

Is there any way I can update nss such that Thunderbird will have access to the correct version or is this something that is in process for the repository?

OpenSUSE :: Thunderbird Icon Jumping / Stops Jumping / Thunderbird Does Not Start

Mar 15, 2011

I have installed 11.4, and it seems (seemed) to work OK so far. I installed Thunderbird via the opensuse "1 click install". the installation ran smoothly, but now a click on the Thunderbird icon does not activate any mail client; the only success is that Thunderbird icon jumps joyfully and then disappears.

Fedora :: F14: GNOME Won't Launch Firefox / Thunderbird

Jun 8, 2011

Noticed this last night, when I try and launch either Firefox or Thunderbird using the GNOME menu or the quick launch icons, it fails. I am able to launch them both from the command line in a terminal. Other applications seem to launch fine, so I'm at a bit of a loss where to begin taking this apart... I do get a task in the task bar that says "Launching Firefox", but then nothing comes up. The same thing happens with Thunderbird. That task just goes away. Another odd thing - following a reboot the launch buttons work once. If I close them, they won't launch again unless I run them from a terminal window.

Ubuntu :: GNOME Won't Display Thunderbird As A Program To Run / Enable This?

Aug 29, 2010

I installed the latest version of Thunderbird by downloading the tarball and copying the contents to the required folder and just point launchers to the Thunderbird file.
However I cannot get GNOME Do to run Thunderbird. When I type run in Gnome Do, I go through the entire list without having Thunderbird as an option. The only plugin I can find is one that allows you to copy Thunderbird contacts to the clipboard.
I have set Thunderbird to be my default mail client, so when I type an email address I can choose to compose a mail in GNOME Do, but just opening up Thunderbird to check mail is not possible.

Debian Configuration :: Xen - Qemu - Fails To Get Into Gnome

Jan 15, 2010

I've just installed lenny from dvd, and am just settling in. I'm curious about virtual machines. so I've installed xen. With xen comes qemu by default. Now the setup I've recently become familiar with is Suse-11 which is quite slick.In Suse, Yast provides a distribution prepared virtual management section for xen, including an installer. Debian's setup is similar but not a clone. I want to try out the installer. Aside from the differences, debian has a screaming deficit. On booting dom0 in Lenny, if fails to get into gnome, badly. I can tell what's probably wrong, but I need to fix it. Now I'm also a gentoo fan and very practised at posting queries, so here goes.

Debian's config for X is somewhat unhelpful. The xorg.conf just states Configured device and configured monitor for its components. If it expanded on just what the settings were it would help. What I have is a frambuffer driver not loadinf or being implemented.

Debian Multimedia :: Gnome Fails With (Oh No) Message

After installing a fresh Jessie, upgrading it to Stretch and then installing gnome. I see this white page with this weird error when I enter my password to log into my account in gnome:

Code: Select allOh no! Something has gone wrong. A problem has occurred and the system can't recover. Please log out and try again.

Sometimes the error vanishes after a second and the desktop comes up with no problem and sometimes I get logged out automatically.

Software :: Importing Thunderbird Settings From Portable Apps Thunderbird

Sep 13, 2010

I had a portable apps version of Thunderbird (windows) that runs off a thumb drive and wanted to take the settings and transfer them to my Thunderbird that's on my Linux computer.

This is what I did:

First, I installed thunderbird on my Ubuntu 10.04 Linux box and opened it, and closed it (so that it would create the /home/<username>/.thunderbird folder in the user account).

Then, I renamed the linux /home/<username>/.thunderbird folder to .thunderbird_ORIGINAL

Then, I created a new /home/<username>/.thunderbird folder

Then, I took the windows e:ThunderbirdPortableDataprofile folder and copied it to the /home/<username>/.thunderbird folder.

Then, I looked into the /home/<username>/.thunderbird_ORIGINAL folder and wrote down the name of the folder with the ".default" extension.

Then, I renamed the profile folder (that came from the windows e:ThunderbirdPortableData folder) "<name-I-wrote-down>.default".

And then, I copied the profiles.ini folder from /home/<username>/.thunderbird_ORIGINAL to the /home/<username>/.thunderbird folder.

I opened up Thunderbird in Linux and everything seems fine! (I'll definitely be keeping a backup just in case)

My question is: is this fine and dandy, or a recipe for disaster?

I was compiling an application called Audacious. One of the dependent packages I needed to obtain was called Glib.

Ubuntu :: Can't Import Address Book From Thunderbird To Thunderbird

Aug 26, 2010

Thanks to Lucid not working properly on i845, i855 and other 8xx chips, had to re-install Karmic on my mum's computer.I saved all the data from her old install and I ve managed to get all her old emails from thunderbird, but I cant import her address book.In Thunderbird/tools/import/addressbooks it only allows importing of LDIF, .tab, .csv and .txt files, but I cant find any of these files in any of the Thunderbird, .Thunderbird, Mozilla-Thunderbird or Mozilla folders in Home folder or anywhere, all I can find is "abook.mab" which IS supposed to be her address book, but when I try and import it the entries are blank and/or indecipherable (prob cos not a compatible file type).

Its one of those "simple" things to do, thats taken hours and hours of time, but that I cant actually find out how to do.

Debian Configuration :: Gnome Login Screen Fails To Start

Oct 6, 2015

Today I upgraded my system to the Nvidia driver 340.93 and 4.2.0-1 kernel on Debian Stretch.

While I wait for the gnome login screen to pop up I get the "Oh no something has gone wrong" message.

When I log in from another terminal and execute startx , gnome initiates and starts although settings like my resolution and other xserver settings are not loaded.

From the journalctl I believe the error is located in the following section:

Code: Select allOct 06 14:23:17 DEBIAN-PC org.a11y.atspi.Registry[1692]: SpiRegistry daemon is running with well-known name - org.a11y.atspi.Registry
Oct 06 14:23:17 DEBIAN-PC gnome-session[1680]: X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
Oct 06 14:23:17 DEBIAN-PC gnome-session[1680]: Major opcode of failed request:  154 (GLX)

[Code] ....

I reinstalled the xorg-xserver and the nvidia drivers and I get the same behavior.

Looking for some info in order to reconfigure the gnome-session to work?

Ubuntu :: What's The Command To Initiate The Gnome System Tray For When It Fails To Load

May 14, 2010

what the command is for the System Tray, so thought I'd ask here. Note I am not asking how to put a system tray on the panel - I know I can add a notification area, but when I reboot there will be 2 of them, so this is not what I want.

I just need to be able to initialise it when it fails to load. Since my upgrade to Lucid, this has happened a couple of times, so expect it will happen again soon enough.

OpenSUSE :: Cannot Launch URL From Thunderbird 3.04b To Firefox

Nov 14, 2009

This is a fresh install of 11.2 KDE-4.3.1.

After reviewing all of the 11.2 Milestone 64-bit DVDs, Milestone 1 - 8 - I was always able to launch Firefox from Thunderbird in search of add-ons or an html link.

It stopped working in RC1, RC2.

I thought this was resolved for openSUSE 11.2. The problem still exists!

Now, thinking the problem was with Thunderbird 3.0.4b. I navigated to Configure Desktop --> Personal Settings --> General --> Default Applications:

Changed Email Client from KMail to Thunderbird

From within KMail I can launch Firefox. However, Thunderbird 3.0.4b does NOT launch Konqueror nor Firefox 3.5.4 !!

In addition the Thunderbird 3.04b Help does NOT work.

Could the setting of Default Applications be broken in KDE-4.3.1 " release 6 " ??

I'm sure I cannot be the only one experiencing this at home???

OpenSUSE :: Thunderbird 3 And Saving Attachments

Feb 22, 2010

at my work we have upgraded suse to 11.2, thus we also got an upgrade of thunderbird 2 to 3.
When I now save attachments to our network disks it writes them as user=rw (600), and no longer as 644. I do not want to do chmod for every attachment.When creating a file by csh or bash terminal or downloading a file by firefox it does write the file as 644, which is good.
Can someone please give me a suggestion of how I can solve this problem? Is there something I have to change in the prefs.js file?
