After that, my E-Mail programs didn't work, neither Outlook Express nor Thunderbird! After much searching, I found that the POP3 setting for incoming mail was changed to "local host" instead of "pop.siol.net".... After correcting itm the mail programs worked again. Reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: 1. First, it was caused by your update, which I probably cannot repeat once it is already done. 2. Then I wouldn't like to repeat it, anyway. 3. That's it... Actual Results: See above. Expected Results: It should have left the POP3 settings unchanged. I marked Major below, since many users will not easily discover why their mail accounts suddenly don't work any more.... and then they remain without the e-mail connection until they find help....
Did you install a new Version of Antivirus Software or a Firewall in the last few days ?
Summary: Mail account messed up by upgrading Firefox to 1.2 → Mail account messed up by upgrading Firefox to 1.0.2
Version: unspecified → 1.0 Branch
No, I didn't. The problem began right after updating Firefox from 1.0.1 to 1.0.2. (In reply to comment #1) > Did you install a new Version of Antivirus Software or a Firewall in the last > few days ?
Firefox doesn't cause a change in outlook Express and it shouldn't do that for Thunderbird. There is only one piece of software who does something like this : Antivirus Software (to scan incoming mails). We have million of users and you are the first and only one who reported something like this.
You have a firewall such as zone alarm or some other firewall or proxy that is blocking your access. This cannot be Firefox's problem.
