I have been able to Opt-Out of my personal information with Google but, I still have an issue with Firefox.

When a search is opened I get the following site with my address information listed: USA People Search.

I keep getting the run-around with that website.

What can Firefox do to remove that information?

Thank you, Marty

Downloaded the latest version of Thunderbird for my emails, which seems to have been a mistake.

I view my emails in full page mode, and when I 'delete' it the next email should open up (the one I received next)

But after the update, when I have read my email and click on 'delete' it reopens the former email ? which is useless.

Why is it doing this?

I will post an image to show what is happening when I use the paste in the toolbar search item. I did a retore to defaults and it fixed the issue until the next day after a reboot of the pc and it is back. Anybody else see this behavior and know how to fix it? Thanks, Dave

p.s. I wrote up a larger version of this and tried to share data which didn't work automatically and wiped out my story. :(

Looks like there is a bug in Thunderbird. On my laptop I did deactivate message grouping once and it works fine. On my desktop computer I have to deactivate this annoying ugly "feature" every time I start thunderbird.

How can I deactivate message grouping permanently? Can't imagine anybody uses this thing... it's the most annoying 'feature' I've seen since I've been using thunderbird - and that's maaaaany, many years!

Please stop this. It's really annoying. I can't believe it passed the quality check :(

Win 7 Home Premium Firefox Version 103.0.1 Private Browsing Mode ('Never Remember History' is set)

What I Did:

-'Privacy & Security'->'Cookies and Site Data', 'Clear Data.' -When 'Clear Now,' Cached Web Content; is clicked, it does not reset to zero (It used to clear completely). -The browser webpage has been refreshed, the browser closed and reopened, and the computer restarted but the cache does not reset.

Issue Started: The morning (Pacific time) of June 26 (Before then, clicking 'Clear Data' reset the KB to 0 without having to close and reopen the browser first, without having to 'refresh' the page after clearing the cache, and without having to restart the computer first.

Someone stated that PB mode has be left temporarily and the disk cache has to be cleared in 'Regular Mode' by choosing 'Custom Setting For History' and removing the check-mark beside 'Always use Private Browsing mode.

1. I do not see the option Always use Private Browsing mode.' 2. Am I performing these steps before a 'session' is started 'OR' after a session (but before closing the browser?). 3: Do the above steps have to be performed after 'every 'session is ended or only the first time that the 'session' is ended? A:

Under 'Cookies and Site Data,' it states: 'In permanent private browsing mode, cookies and site data will always be cleared when Firefox is closed' but this simply is not true 'unless' I am missing a detail?

All of this unnecessary 'effort' just to clear 100% of the disk cache, after every session, that should be as simple as clicking 'Clear Data.'

HELP!

Hello, I have recently changed my Host and in the process of trying to reconfigure my server details for my new mail account I accidentally removed my account, thereby losing all mails and folders including my customer database, which leaves me feeling bereft.

Looking at similar questions it seems that it is possible to restore the lost mails and folders but unfortunately I am not that savy with this stuff and find it all rather difficult and scary.

Are there any step by step instructions on how I can restore my account or simply get access to my lost mails and folders ?

Thank you very much for any assistance.

I have 3 separate sets of User IDs w. respective PWs email accounts. After I login to 1st ID, say User-1 & PW-1, --> Enter, the Firefox prompts: "Don't Update" ... "Update" options. Let's say I click --> "Update" option and later log off.

Next I login to 2nd ID, say User-2 & PW-2 --> Enter, again I get same two prompts "Don't Update" ... "Update". Then on it gets interesting .... ....

  • Case 1:- If I click --> "Don't Update," ... later log off. Next when I try login on using either of IDs, User-1 or User-2, Firefox will auto fill in --> PW-1 ... ... (bcoz I had opted --> "Don't Update").
  • Case 2:- Alternatively if I click --> "Update" and later log off. Next when I try login on using either of IDs, User-1 or User-2, Firefox will auto fill --> PW-2 (bcoz now I had opted --> Update" and therefore both IDs got inherited w. PW-2).

The same scenario is enacted if I login to 3rd ID --> User-3. Again depending upon what I click on "Don't Update" / "Update."

Eventually all 3 IDs would inherit just one of the three PWs. This happens whether the Firefox browser is on Mobile or Desktop mode. Lastly on other websites other than att.com login page, I get Save option after entering the PW.

Thunderbird keeps creating multiple draft messages for each save. I can start composing an email, hit Ctl-s to save and I get an unread message in Drafts. If I hit Ctl-s to save again (or TB autosaves, it doesn't matter) I get yet another unread message in Drafts. This just builds up crud which needs to be manually deleted. I am using IMAP and like the functionality where if I saved a draft on my desktop, I could pick it up on my laptop later.

Hi,

I am signed into a Firefox account. I have used this account on at least three different computers. I have downloaded the application anew at least a dozen times.

Firefox randomly, from where I sit, opens things in French rather than English. How can I keep it in English unless otherwise specified (I occasionally want German or Japanese)?

Thank you.

I have a filter to mark certain messages as read upon arrival (through Tools => Message Filters). This used to work fine until the last major upgrade of Thunderbird. Now the messages do get marked as read, but I am still getting a taskbar notification for a new message, which defeats the purpose of not being alerted to these messages.

Is there a fix or a way around this? I just need 'not to be notified about certain messages', something that used to be achieved by marking them as read automatically, but that doesn't work anymore.

I'm using the latest version of Firefox on Mac OS X 10.14.6.

Whenever I go to print PDFs from Firefox, usually through Gmail, if there are any images in the PDFs they are blown up way past their margins and rendered unreadable. This isn't a huge issue but it is affecting some text as well, meaning I can't print the documents directly from Firefox. I can download the documents and print them from Preview just fine, so it isn't an issue with the printer.

I'm attaching a screenshot of my print settings and an example of what Firefox is outputting (converted to JPEG so I can upload it).
