Hi there and welcome

The password ***** ***** your email account. Can you tell me please which email service you are trying to connect Thunderbird to?

I can see you are a first time user to the site. What we do here is either a question and answer type of conversation or remote support where I would actually connect to the computer and have a look and attempt to fix the problem for you.

Remote support can save a lot of time if you are not comfortable performing repairs yourself. Sometimes even with instructions you can make a mistake and make things worse.

Both options are 100% guaranteed by the way. Remote is just quicker and avoids the risk of you making a mistake and doing something wrong.

If you want remote click get extra help. If not simply reply to me.

Thanks,

Richard

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi, Richard, sorry I have not been in touch for a couple of days. I had some urgent family matters to attend to, and was away from home. But I'm back now and have just opened the Thenderbird prog, but it is asking for my Master Password ***** the software security device. This is something I do not ever remember doing. Can you say what I need to do?
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

No problem, we left with you entering in the gmail password ***** the account, this you enter in please

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Well, I've done that but it is not accepted. I've tried several passwords but no joy.
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

ok, we will then remove it

To do this

  1. Choose Tools -> Error Console.
  2. Paste the expression
    openDialog("chrome://pippki/content/resetpassword.xul")
  3. Press the Evaluate button.
  4. Accept when prompted with the confirmation dialog box.

It is then removed

Let me know how you go please

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Forgive my ignorance - where do I find Tools?
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

It is at the top in the menu bar in Thunderbird

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Sorry - got a problem which I have to attend to. I'll be back shortly.
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

ok

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Right Richard, back at the desk, I can't see any sign of a menu bar with "tools" on it. Have I opened the right page?
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

It is in thunderbird at the top

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I've got thunderbird opened but the top reads 'get message, write, chat, address book, etc - no mention of "tools".
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, it's nothing like tha.
