I went to open Thunderbird and received a message that says:

the item 'thunderbird.exe' that this shortcut refers to has been changed or moved, so this shortcut will no longer work properly

I keep hundreds of my client folders in Thunderbird and I cannot access them, it just seems to have gone !? My stomach is in a knot !

If I look in my program folders under Mozilla Thunderbird there are only x2 folders, one called 'extensions' which is empty, and another called 'tobedeleted' which has only one file in it called: rep73feeee9-1bcf-ae16-4e52739a8944  ?

If I do a search for thunderbird there is only one result, which is the one above.


I know that my 'Profile' is still on my system.

I have had a similar thing before and a kind Man helped me get it back. Can anyone help Please ?

First, I am supporting a family member, who has TB configured on two separate machines. Configuring for Comcast IMAP+SMTP, in the usual manner; nothing esoteric about that, all very routine.

Machine A seems to be working okay, no errors. TB up to date on this machine, connected over an ethernet wire, if that makes any difference.

Machine B, getting spam prompted over IMAP 1014 errors. No other information is provided than 1014.

I have tried dropping the account configuration hundred percent, restarting TB, re-adding the account configuration, to no avail. Still spam 1014 errors.

I did happen to notice TB needed an update, so I did that as well. Still 1014 errors.

I have also tried dropping that email saved password from the saved passwords, and responding to the subsequent re-enter password prompt. Also to no avail.

What if anything might have changed, and how can we contend with this? What is so corrupt, do we need to be mucking around in any AppData files, roaming files, etc?

We are not the only ones, apparently, to have bumped into this issue. Not sure if this is also Comcast specific, since a recent TB and/or IMAP specification change, i.e. maybe we try with a gmail account, for instance.

Wondering also, is it IMAP and/or Comcast somehow tieing Machine A to the IMAP and not releasing that association? Knowing a little bit about IMAP in this regard. And/or somehow now prohibiting Machine B+ from establishing a connection?

Dear Firefox Development Team,

I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to request the implementation of a feature in Firefox that I believe would greatly enhance user experience and accessibility on the web. Specifically, I am referring to the text fragment feature (#:~:text=) that is currently supported in browsers based on the Chromium engine, such as Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.

The text fragment feature allows users to link directly to specific pieces of text within a webpage, facilitating more precise navigation and making it easier to reference exact portions of content. This is particularly useful for academic citations, sharing specific excerpts from lengthy articles, and improving overall user interaction with web content.

For example, a URL formatted as https://example.com#:~:text=desired%20text%20fragment directs users not just to the page, but to the exact location of the specified text, highlighting it for easy identification. This can save users significant time and improve the efficiency of information retrieval.

Given Firefox's commitment to innovation and user-centric design, I believe that integrating this feature would be a valuable addition. It would not only bring Firefox in line with other major browsers in terms of functionality but also enhance its appeal to users who rely on this precise method of navigation.

I hope you will consider this suggestion and look forward to potentially seeing this feature in a future release of Firefox.

Thank you for your continued dedication to improving the Firefox browser.

Best regards, Grey Ronin

Ps. Sorry, but due to lack of time and somewhat poor English skills this message was generated by AI.

I use Thunderbird for 18 email accounts and I have the "Inbox" of each of them in the "Favorite Folders" list. I would like to put them in the order of my preference, e.g. ones I use most on top of those I use seldom. It seems like I ought to be able to just click and drag them into order, but that doesn't work. How can I do that?

Fifefox does not save a new payment method, clicking on save does nothing

Hi, it seems that my Firefox browser does not want to save a new payment method. I'm trying to access "Settings -> Privacy & Security -> Autofill" and then clic… (læs mere)

Hi, it seems that my Firefox browser does not want to save a new payment method. I'm trying to access "Settings -> Privacy & Security -> Autofill" and then click on "Saved payment methods", which opens a dialog with the existing payment methods and options to remove/add/edit. I'm clicking on Add, filling-in the card details and then clicking Save, nothing happens....

I previously had a working saved payment method, but it stopped working (I think more than 6 months ago). I tried to re-enable the credit cards by setting the following configs on about:config page:

- extensions.formautofill.creditCards.available: true
- extensions.formautofill.creditCards.supportedCountries: '...,RO' -> (I was adding my country to the existing list)

After the browser restart with those new settings when I'm on a payment page, clicking on a credit card field will show the saved credit card but if I click on it, it will not fill the details. And also trying to save a new card, manually as described previously in this message, or by the automatically prompt to save a new card after a successful payment was done. Both methods failed on me but with no error (I cannot see the saved payment on the list).

I tried removing the existing saved card, it worked removing it, but the add is still not working.

I also tried restarting in save mode, launching Firefox in a separate profile and added my country on the creditCards config for supportedCountries to show the "Saved payment methods" button on new profile, and it did not change anything.

I'm thinking there is a missing permission somewhere on the disk but I don't know where is the payment data stored on disk.

I would really appreciate any help on this.

PS: Check the attached pic to see the payment add and clicking the save button does nothing (also there are no validation errors). And the other: FF version, OS, troubleshooting info.

Hi, 3 weeks ago I suddenly could not log in to my email without errors.

First I get a Google screen "Choose an account" showing the three Gmail accounts I use. I select the first one.

"Mozilla Thunderbird wants to access your Google Account". This refers to calendars. I take the Allow option.

Then I get the message "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead

Thunderbird detected a potential security threat and did not continue to localhost. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details."

When I close this window I get another Google screen .

"Mozilla Thunderbird wants to access your Google Account". This refers to i) mail, ii) contacts, and iii) calendars. I take the Allow option.

Then I get the same message message "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead

Thunderbird detected a potential security threat and did not continue to localhost. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details."

This process cycles through the other two emails. Then I get and authentication failure message.

I have seen hints that this might be a certificate issue but I have tried in vain to find certificates stored in Thunderbird.

Any help approeciated.

Thanks

Hello, I closed my browser, expecting it to save my current tabs as it usually does. When I reopened it, the tabs were gone. They were important for me, and some of them were pretty old so I can't find them in my history. I tried checking the "recently closed tabs" option, it didn't help. There was also no option to restore the previous session. Can you help me restore my lost tabs?
