What causes the software update in Thunderbird fail and how will you fix this issue?
Mozilla Thunderbird is an e-mail/newsgroup client from Mozilla. It has many advantages compared to other e-mailing applications available to users. Mozilla Thunderbird is very light on system resources and can be installed on almost all computers regardless of the Operating System. As Mozilla Thunderbird is an open source application, users would not have to purchase the application. Some of the features of Mozilla Thunderbird include new message toolbar, migration assistant, better account set-up wizard, one click address book, attachment reminder, activity manager, tabs with search, quick filter toolbar, message archive and so on. Many add-ons can be also installed with Mozilla Thunderbird which would improve the overall functioning of the application. Mozilla Thunderbird installed on your system can be also updated. However, some Mozilla Thunderbird users might face some problems while updating the application. Issues while updating Mozilla Thunderbird might be because of many reasons such as problems with the network settings of the system, firewall on the system blocking the update process, issues with some of the system files associated with Mozilla Firefox, etc.
Following details give users more information regarding ways to fix Mozilla Thunderbird update fail issues:
- Check network settings
- Verify firewall configuration
- Check system files
Check network settings
Problems while updating Mozilla Thunderbird installed on your system might be because of incorrect configuration of network related settings on the system. If the network related settings such as access points, IP address are incorrectly configured, update of the application would fail. Users are also advised to disable the proxy settings on the application during the update. If the update issue has come up after some network related settings were changed, reverting them back to original values would solve the issue and get the application updated.
Verify firewall configuration
Windows computers have a security feature known as the system firewall. Firewall filters out the content coming into the system and this would prevent malwares from entering the system and causing issues. If the firewall on you system installed with Mozilla Thunderbird has not been configured properly, then update of Mozilla Thunderbird application would be stopped. All users having Mozilla Thunderbird update fail issue are suggested to check the settings of the firewall and if the firewall is found blocking the application, creating an exception for the application would solve the issue.
