Customer Question
When I tried to...

When I tried to open my thunderbird I got a pop up to update Firefox and I can't make it go away so I can get to my email.

Technician's Assistant: How's your internet connection? Are you checking your email from a browser or a mail client (e.g. Outlook)?

My connection is good, I use Thunderbird to get my email.

Technician's Assistant: Are there any antivirus or firewall settings that could block you from receiving mail?

If there is I don't know but I readily accessed my emails earlier today.
