Hi - The last 2-3 Mac OS versions of FF (85.0.2, 86.0) are not allowing me to open Firefox>Preferences from the Firefox menu, the dashboard icon, or using Command-,

I'm only able to open the Preferences window by typing about:preferences in the address bar. If I keep a Preferences tab available, I'm able to navigate to that window using the aforementioned methods.

Any ideas?

Many thanks

Firefox "Print Preview" has disappeared from the File menu in 84.0.2; all I have now is "Print", which brings up a Microsoft Edge style print dialog. Is this an upgrading error, or is it just the way Firefox will be now?

A recent Firefox update has totally disrupted our ability to print from browser windows. There used to be a "Print Preview" button that allowed us to set things up the way we wanted them. That's now missing. As a result, stuff that used to cost us for ten pages now costs us for twenty pages. Also, when we print double-sided, the second side prints upside down.

This strikes me and my wife as a horrible development, and we would like to go back to the old version ASAP!

Dear Tbird folks, I'm on Thunderbird V78.8.0 on Windows 10. I want a way to save all my address books. I selected All Address Books and then I selected Tools -> Export and it opened a Save dialog pointing to a random folder and started saving files. I could not stop it except to keep pressing Cancel for each address book until it ran out of books to save.

This seems like a flaky way to save things. Why was there no option to pick a destination folder? I then selected one address book and used Tools --> Export and it behaved properly. But that's the slow and tedious way to save all of them.

How is it supposed to work when you want to save All Address Books in a row?

Yours, Michael F

I have Thunderbird 78.7 on Windows 10. When I started it just now, the only thing I saw was the welcome screen.

My Profiles folder is in the same place as it was before, the files containing mail are the, and the folders seems to be accessed by TB, but I can't find my accounts, folders or emails anywhere in TB.

Followed the instructions in this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1270964, deleted my global-messages-db.sqlite file and restarted TB, but still nothing. Just the Welcome screen, no reindexing.

There does appear a new global-messages-db.sqlite after starting TB.

I also did a re-install of TB, but that didn't help either. I am completely out of ideas, to be honest.

Thanks in advance!

I have been using a POP3 server for my email for a long time and I would like to switch it to IMAP. From the online help for Thunderbird, it sounds like I can't switch server types on an existing profile and will need to set up a new profile to use IMAP. Is that correct? Is there a way to copy all of my emails from my old profile to my new one? I see the import option on the tools menu, but how do I export from the old profile?

Thanks.

I have the following simple script in ann html-document within a nested frameset:

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript"> </script>

The script is activated by the "onload" function in the body. This works flawlessly in Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Safari and Opera, bit not in Firefox (latest version).

Anyone any idea how to get it working in Firefox?

Thunderbird v78.7.1, Win10, email replies frequently produce incorrect From: or To: addresses

Out of sheer laziness, I have continued to run (ancient) Thunderbird v24.3.0 on a Windows 7 machine until this past weekend, when I set aside 10 minutes to install the current level of Thunderbird, and moved my mail data to a Win10 pc. As a point of minor interest, I use Mindspring (Earthlink) as my mail server: inbound mail is processed from an Earthlink pop server, and outbound mail is sent through a single secure SMTP server.

This migration involved these steps: (1) stop Thunderbird on Win7; (2) install v78.7.1 on Win10; (3) copy the Users\(id ..)\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird folder (and its subfolders, including the active profile) from Win7 to the same logical location on Win10 (I renamed the Win10 Thunderbird folder which was loaded as part of the new email installation as a safety measure).

Save for the behavior of email Reply/Reply All functions, all Thunderbird actions are behaving normally. These functions, though, are behaving bizarrely now with 78.7.1.

Before I describe the symptoms I see now, I'll note my Account Settings, which are unchanged from the old Thunderbird on Win7.

I have three accounts defined, as follows:

o MyID-1 -- this my default email id, and is defined to periodically check the mail server for new messages, and to look for mail when Thunderbird begins operation. It shares a single Inbox with the other accounts. Its Identity is MyID-1@mindspring.com. MyID-1 is my default address.

o MyID-2 -- save for the userid string, this account is otherwise identical to MyID-1. It too shares the single Inbox, and its identity is MyID-2@mindspring.com.

o OtherID -- this is a "backup" email id that is normally active on a different workstation here. Should that pc experience a failure, I could enable this account, and permit it to send and receive mail. It is defined now to never contact the pop mail or smtp servers.

On the chance that the userid/email-id strings may be causing odd effects:

   . MyID-1 is a string of characters, say "abcde".
   . MyID-2 includes MyID-1 as a subset, say "abcde89".
   . OtherID includes MyID-2 as a subset, say "1abcde89".

And to reiterate, there is a single Outbound/SMTP server definition. The associated userid -- for id/password verification for server authorization -- is MyID-1@mindspring.com.

At last, then, here the errors I am experiencing. There may be other situations which cause similar problems, but these failures are consistent and easily repeatable.

1. New email arrives:

     From: someone@gmail.com
     To:      OtherID@mindspring.com
     To:      MyID-1@mindspring.com

I select Reply All. This creates a new note as follows:

    From: OtherID@mindspring.com
    To:      someone@gmail.com
    To:      MyID-1@mindspring.com

This symptom persists whether the original email is in the Inbox, or saved to another folder.

2. I have an email in my Sent folder, not yet moved to a more specific folder:

    From: MyID-1@mindspring.com
    To:     OtherID@mindspring.com

Reply creates:

   From: OtherID@mindspring.com
   To:     MyID-1@mindspring.com

3. Another Sent Mail Reply, with the original reading:

   From: MyID-1@mindspring.com
   To:     MyID-2@mindspring.com

and Reply produces:

   From: MyID-2@mindspring.com
   To:     MyID-1@mindspring.com

So to summarize: I can't think of a single reason why Reply or Reply All should _ever_ behave so as to:

(a) NOT use my default email address for the source of replies; AND,

(b) Reply TO an address different than the From: header in the mail being replied to.

I apologize for the length of this post! The good news is that I haven't found any other environmental or settings values that ought to be of interest, or this entry would be lengthier yet.

Many thanks -- in advance.

How can I create, or recreate, a Trash folder in my IMAP Thunderbird, v. 78.3.1, email account? I'm running Windows 10. When I right-click on my account heading in the left pane of the Thunderbird window, select “New Folder”, type “Trash” in the Name field, and then click on “Create Folder”, nothing happens. I've read the “Chosen Solution” to “The Trash Can is missing on Thunderbird” in the online Support, but it presupposes that a Trash folder already exists. Any help would be much appreciated.

*SOLVED* 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) <Here used to be a stupid question>.

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 (Open)PGP 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!
