    Smile Thunderbird 32 or 64 bit

    Hi guys.
    On my, newish lappy, I have windows 10 home.
    I'm using Thunderbird 32 bit and having a smallish problem.
    Whenever I log off or restart & then restart Thunderbird I have to reenter all the account passwords.
    I used both 32 & 64 bit & same problem.
    Any ideas on what I can do to stop this?

    Ian

    Hmm weird I use that and don't have any issues like you are having, I'm guessing you are telling it to save credentials?

    I'm not sure what credentials means.
    I reinstalled the 64 bit over the top of the 32 bit and same problem.
    Everything was there, but no account passwords for Gmail....

    Maybe try a clear install for the 64 bit and see if there are any differences.

    I downlaoded the latest 32 bit & 64 bit & had them running on seperated hard drives.
    Both had same problem.

    So I had a look at my backups & founf Thunderbird Setup 78.0`which is 3 bit, did a reboot & started up all good, but wants me to update it.

    Dump Thunderbird and move on

    Both Gmail and Outlook work without any drama whatsoever.
