Thunderbird 52.6.1 in openSUSE Tumbleweed fails to save exceptions for remote content after program close.

Posted

Thunderbird has suddenly forgotten all of my security exceptions concerning remote content. I went through my inbox, adding each again. Remote content showed correctly for each message until I closed and restarted Thunderbird. Then all exceptions were lost again when I checked. File permissions for my .thunderbird folder have not changed as far as I can tell. Thunderbird is not saving the exceptions upon program exit. I'll also post the same problem on the Tumbleweed forums as I get Thunderbird from the openSUSE Mozilla repository.

Check the file permissions on prefs.js

Restart Thunderbird with add-ons disabled (Thunderbird Safe Mode). On the Help menu, click on "Restart with Add-ons Disabled". If Thunderbird works like normal, there is an Add-on or Theme interfering with normal operations. You will need to re-enable add-ons one at a time until you locate the offender.

Question owner

Permissions for prefs.js = View:anyone; Write:only owner; Execute:anyone I changed all permissions to anyone and they were changed back to what's above by Thunderbird. I have no add-ons installed, but started in safe mode anyway, with no difference in results.
