I installed Firefox on a MacBook Pro 13" (Mid 2012) with MacOS 10.15.7 Catalina. Before closing Firefox for the first time, I carefully opened settings and ticked "Restore previous session", under "Start" on the "General" settings page. But when I opened Firefox again, there were no tabs, just a "Welcome screen" as if it was the first time ever I use Firefox! This is extremely disappointing! I am really shocked! I had never thought that Firefox would screw me like this! I have been using Firefox on Windows and Ubuntu for many many years! I can add that it is Firefox 85.0.2. And now it updated itself to 86.0.

How to undo upgrade from Thunderbird v68.10.0 > 78.7.1 ?

Hi all,

upfront I have to admit that I hadn't been paying close enough attention when I ran my Linux distro's updates this morning and stepped into the Thunderbird v78.x upgrade trap.

It's a mess. What's extra annoying is that I had made the decision to avoid this v78.x upgrade until this OpenPGP implementation will have matured, since having the GPG passphare stored on the drive is wrong on so many levels. And 'no', setting a master password is no sensible 'workaround' ! This is what I am talking about: https://www.ghacks.net/2020/12/07/you-need-to-use-a-master-password-in-thunderbird-if-you-use-openpgp/

So this is what I did so far: - restored a previous system snapshot (Linux Mint 20.1) - changed the Thunderbird launcher command to "thunderbird --allow-downgrade %u" - launched Thunderbird - reinstalled language packs and addons, incl. Enigmail - removed the master password which I set up after this TB v78.7.1 upgrade was performed

These are my questions/issues: 1) How do I remove all that which was done to my profile folder in the course of this upgrade? (I would have a full copy of that profile folder, unfortunetaly only from November 2020 and I'm using POP3 instead of IMAP for all accounts)

2) How do I get rid of this OpenPGP stuff in every e-mail account under Settings?

3) How do I ensure that NO passphrase remains stored ANYWHERE on PC as a result of this upgrade? Do I have to manually edit the key4.db SQLite database or would using the older version of that from this November 2020 backup be helpful, since, if I understand things correctly, this OpenPGP implementation uses that file for storing such information?

4) How do I get Enigmail to work again? Opening Enigmail settings shows my key(s) but the Enigmail icons on the menu bar are grayed out. What am I missing?

5) Which *.bak files in the profile folder do need need attention/renaming/replacing?

A BIG thank you to everyone who can help clear up this mess in advance!

To whom it may concern

I am testing the autoupdate on one of my vm`s and I cannot configure what we need.

Goal: - We would like to update firefox esr yearly with a package through sccm. - After installation or after first startup, firefox should imediately update to newest version - From then, firefox esr should installed newest version as soon as available and check daily for a new version


My Config:

// Enable updater lockPref("app.update.enabled", true); lockPref("app.update.auto", true); lockPref("app.update.mode", 0); lockPref("app.update.service.enabled", true); lockPref("app.update.silent", true); lockPref("app.update.timerFirstInterval", 60); lockPref("app.update.promptWaitTime", 60); lockPref("app.update.download.backgroundinterval", 0); lockPref("app.update.doorhanger", false); lockPref("app.update.disable_button.showUpdateHistory", false);


The config file was implemented. I could see the changes in about:config, but if I today distribute version 78.7.1 with the above config file, firefox esr does not automatically update to the newest version 78.8.0. Only if I open the settings or the help about.

What am I missing? How can I achieve that firefox will update silently(without user intervention) imediately to newest version after install and update regularly to newest version?

Regards, Jonas

On a regular basis (few times per week) when trying to enter a comment on a YouTube video, or enter something in the search, the keyboard refuses to appear. Only solution seems to be to restart Firefox completely. Attached image shows a search attempt, where the text cursor is in the field, but no keyboard is appearing. All other sites seem to be fine.

Is there a way to hide the current window when dragging off its one and only tab?

Hello! I'm a sort-of new Firefox user, and I just noticed some differences in behavior between Firefox and Chrome.

In Chrome, when I drag a tab out of its window so that I can move it into another window, if the window in question only has one tab, then dragging that one tab will hide the current window and show the background, allowing me to easily drag it into that background window.

This is especially useful when both windows are maximized.

In Firefox, I cannot do the same. Dragging a tab around a window with only that one tab open does not hide the current window, but rather, drags the tab around the browser window. I recognize now that this is because I can drag the tab to other places such as the Bookmarks menu, and if the above Chrome behavior was replicated, I would have a hard time doing this with just one tab open.

Though, I think the way to merge a maximized one-tab window onto another window in Firefox is to just drag the window a bit so it stops becoming maximized, then drag the one tab onto the window behind it. Is that how I'm supposed to do it, or is there a better way?

On another note, is there any way as of the moment to replicate Chrome's behavior with regard to this tab dragging situation? If not, thank you for your time, anyway. I'll just get used to the new way of doing this for now. Thank you all!

Hi!

Updated FF on my Linux box today & now the NYT homepage can't be loaded. Altho' the WaPo homepage seems to load faster, the NYT just times out in mid-render, probably due to the site's heavy javascript. FF doesn't pop up any error messages, alas.

I'm assuming the new FF is simply allergic to the NYT's clunky code. But still. . .any tips, tricks, workarounds or hints to fix?

Hello,

I have synchronized a shared Google calendar via https://apidata.googleusercontent.com/caldav/v2/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx@group.calendar.google.com/events in Thunderbird. This basically works fine.

But if there is a recurring event (e.g. every two weeks on Wednesday) and someone moves a single one of those events e.g. from Wednesday to Thursday via her/his Google Calendar app on Android smartphone, this single event will still show in Thunderbird on Wednesday instead of Thursday. While it shows on Thursday in Google Calender app or on calendar.google.com (see Screenshots).

What can be done to show the event on the correct date in Thunderbird calendar, too?

(This is no synchronization problem, other events added later are shown in Thunderbird.)

Many thanks for your help!

Hi,

Under,

  • Linux (Manjaro XFCE)
  • Thunderbird78.8
  • Account: hotmail

How can set on which folder, actually other partition and folder than OS system, the Thunderbird store the emails?

From a fresh install, 1/ I started Thunderbird, 2/ set my hotmail account and Thunderbird started downloading the messages and creating reproducing my email tree structure. 3/ Without waiting the full download I closed TB

4/ I checked .thunderbird folder I see "profiles.ini" and "installs.ini" files as well as 2 folders <random_string>.default <random_string>.default-release

5/ In the profiles.ini I do see not see a relationship with my hotmail.

6/ under <random_string>.default-release/ImapMail/outlook.office365.com/ I see my hotmail account folder structure

7/ I cut & paste the <random_string>.default-release to the new partition (non OS)

The initial profiles.ini is [Profile1] Name=default IsRelative=1 Path=7xaim9be.default Default=1

[Profile0] Name=default-release IsRelative=1 Path=eatrfwpe.default-release

[General] StartWithLastProfile=1 Version=2

[InstallFDC34C9F024745EB] Default=eatrfwpe.default-release Locked=1


The modified one [Profile1] Name=default IsRelative=1 Path=7xaim9be.default Default=1

[Profile0] Name=default-release IsRelative=1 Path=run/media/phx/MMedia/eatrfwpe.default-release

[General] StartWithLastProfile=0 Version=2

[InstallFDC34C9F024745EB] Default=run/media/phx/MMedia/eatrfwpe.default-release Locked=1

I also modified installs.in as such [FDC34C9F024745EB] Default=run/media/phx/MMedia/eatrfwpe.default-release Locked=1

I start TB, it request if I start with the "default-release" profile which I do, finally it prompts "Your Thunderbird profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible"

Thanks I read https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-thunderbird-stores-user-data
