TB 115 - add security exception - hangs

Submitted by ejejej on November 5, 2023 - 10:14am

I got used to TB portable asking to "confirm security exception" at location or Regular installed Windows10 TB did never ask this nor does TB 115.
When I click "Get Certificate" this hangs for ever.
My E-Mail service provider suggests for TB. No special hint for TB portable.
I installed same TB 115.4.1 on Windows10. This does not ask for adding security exception AND works fine.

115.2.3 available today

115.2.3 became available this afternoon. If you have automatic updates turned off, you'll have to Check for Updates and accept the update (if desired). I see no problems in it, and the release notes report some very good fixes. If you have the Portable Apps app, you'll get 115.2.3.

Calendar Time

Updated TB 08/Sep via the 26.1 platform o Windows 10 but TB 115.2.0 calendar now insists that event times are 2 hours later than they had originally been set: a previously set 12:00 appointment is now being displayed as a 14:00 appointment.

It makes no difference if I continue to use the system timezone or set it manually before re-starting TB.

Well, as we wait for the devs to figure out how to do auto-updates from 102.x to 115+.x, they've released a new version, contrary to what they said a while back:

From, 02 August 2023;
"Thunderbird 102.14.0, scheduled for release on July 30, 2023, is the final release of Thunderbird 102."
Users of Thunderbird 102.13 went to 102.14 running if they accepted the update.

Now, today, 30 August 2023, this:
Thunderbird 102.15.0, is the final release of Thunderbird 102.

AUP#Out-1500 send failure, Spectrum ISP

Submitted by tnsi on August 30, 2023 - 11:09am

Recently used Starlink connection on a trip, I could only send on first registered Spectrum ( email address, not on the secondary email address. When got home and connected to my Spectrum ISP, could send again on both addresses for few weeks.
Last week reverted to AUP#Out-1500 msg when sending on second email. Spectrum 'tech' no help. Using TB 3.1 since 2012 with no issues. Not a mobile user so have not wanted, nor needed, to upgrade.

Thunderbird Portable Beta 117b3 issue

I installed TBird 116 Test a few days ago, and it updated successfully through a first 117 version to the current 117.0b3. But today I noticed that if I double-click a message in my Archives folder (in Local Folders), a Composition (Write) window opens, instead of a reading tab or window. This happens on both my office desktops, both Windows 11 Pro 22h2 2134, with Thunderbird Beta Test installed to my programs & data drive, not on my C:\ drive on either PC.
