it is now a.m. here...


Good news!  

No password requests for any of the accounts!   :)

Questions remain though.  Why has it (Mozilla) asked for account passwords all this time (and not OE)?  Will it stay this way from now on?  Who knows!  

Just sorry to use up this thread so much.
 
Hope it doesn't happen to anyone else!


Thanks to everyone for coming over to help me resolve this issue.  Just hope it doesn't happen again.

Peut-être la réponse is to be found in the fact that I had a previous AV program installed?

It was removed of course prior to installing AVAST but that may have had somekind of impact.

Problem starting over again.

It seems to be a situation of on and off.  

Any other reasons for this?

Perhaps a temporary solution is to put AVAST on pause before signing in...

I believe your problem about the e-mail program asking for a password each time it opens is due to configuration in TB itself.
If while in TB inbox go to>Tools,>Options,>Advanced,>If the password option has a +beside it left click on the +. That will allow you to then see a tab that says "Manage stored passwords",>left click on that tab. You will then have 2 choices of either "Passwords saved" or "Passwords never saved". Choose the passwords saved, you should then see your site mailbox address in the white area plus your user name and or password.
Believe if that option is set to "Passwords never saved" thats why each time when you open up into TB it is asking for the password.
Have a good day

Hi Otis,

Have checked as you said and all passwords show up.

Have un-installed AVAST again  :-\ and passwords work fine.
Don't have to save them over again once they are checked off to be remembered.

Guess my problem is unique.

Make sure your firewall has given avast full rights to hook up to your mail server.

Firewall?  Check.  AVAST is allowed.

As I said before, why would things work fine for OE and not for TB or Mozilla Mail?

Zé mystery!

Well i use outlook express, thunderbird, firefox with spam programs and all work with no problems what so ever. Your situation, the way it is explained and our limited access to see what is happening on your end, certainly isnt helping much. You have uninstaled avast now what 10 times or more. Avast isnt causing these problems, it just isnt feasable. I would at this point, and its my last educated guess for you, is to uninstal thunderbird, wipe out all registry entries. Then reinstal again, perhaps something is botched in the thunderbird program itself ( bad original exe--D/L fresh new version, not the one you have ). Thats all I have for you. Good luck.

Uninstalling TBird (or Mozilla too) is a big operation!

Suppose I'll get to that as I'd like to get to the reason for this.

Is it possible that a previous (and removed) AV program had it's impact on Mozilla (and not on OE) settings?

Probably but I think to the others would be easier to help if you specify which av programs you installed in your system before avast...
I do not use Mozilla but I think an antivirus won't interfere just with it and not with OE...

You unistalled it before installing avast, I suppose...
Right now, can you say in few words what you cannot do? What's wrong?
This thread is becoming too long to know exactly what is your problem now...  ;)
