When I ask WordPress to "preview in new tab," I get a File Not Found screen. (See uploaded image.) This works fine in Chrome (which I rarely use) but not in Firefox, so I'm thinking it might be a Firefox issue. The Tablet and Mobile previews work fine, but they don't require a new tab. I thought it might have to do with pop-ups, so I made my blog's URL an exception. That didn't help. Then I disabled the pop-up blocker altogether. That didn't help either. I've never had this problem before although I've been using both Firefox and WordPress for many years. I'm working on an old laptop (current one is kaput), but I think everything's up to date. Windows 10. Any idea what the problem might be? TIA for any help. This is driving me nuts!

I am migrating to a new machine running Windows 11 (from old one with Windows 10) and have installed Thunderbird and Chrome as default apps. The only thing that is not working is clicking on a hyperlink in a message. I have read the article addressing this issue and tried all the suggested fixes. None work. When I click on a hyperlink in a message body, it just ignores me. If I right click on the link and choose open in browser from the pop-up, it ignores me. It does not matter what the type of link is. If it is a PDF, it does not open in the browser despite that being the default action for PDFs. More importantly, if it is just a link in a message (e.g., tracking info from Amazon), it does not do anything. I have looked at the setups on both machines and they seem identical. But what works under Windows 10 is not working under Windows 11. (As a computer scientist, I understand that there are a lot of variables in play here.)

I would appreciate any suggestions on how to get past this. Copy and paste is not the end of the world, but I would expect more consistent behavior.

I'm trying to add a new account with my student email that is basically a gmail with a different name. When I try to create the account, Thunderbird launches the website that asks for my username and email. That same website will accept my password when using a browser but when Thunderbird opens it will not accept it. I've checked several times, I've even copied the exact same username and password from the browser to Thunderbird and TBird says that it's a wrong password and it absolutely is the right password. I tried to cancel the process so that the account is created nonetheless but when I click on it, Tbird will still try to open that website and will not accept the correct password. Please help!

I'm running the 102.0b8 (64-bit) release.

When I view the inbox for my Yahoo account, by default it shows only Unread. The Quick filter is NOT on(see attached). If I select the Unread Quick filter the display does NOT change, except in green it shows "67 messages".

If I type All in the quick filter box it shows unread messages and a count of 163 messages.

Does anyone know how I can reset this behavior?

Thunderbird now uses SQLITE data base files for Address Books. I'd like to copy an address book to another computer for use with Thunderbird there. How does Thunderbird recognize that a given SQLITE file is an address book? Is it solely based upon the file name (to the left of the .SQLITE porition of the name) beginning with the string "abook"? Is there something else in some configuration file that maintains this notion? Are there multiple files associated with a given address book? For example, I see these files in my profile directory: abook.sqlite abook.sqlite-shm abook.sqlite-wal So, I'm guessing the answer to that last question is Yes.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!

This isn't a question about the "Multi-Account Containers" addons, I am pretty sure that there was a section called "Container tabs" in the privacy and security settings, and I could use containers without installing an addon some days ago.

I can still access by directly viewing this address

about:preferences#containers

But I can't find it in the settings, and this feature does no longer work.

So I went to read recent release notes from Firefox 100 to 101.0.1, but I didn't find any notes to say this feature has been disabled. Could this be an unexpected result of an update?

I recently started using the archive option manually, by right-clicking emails and selecting "Archive".

I've noticed that for some, very few, emails, the "Archive" option is not there.

I can manually mark it as read and move it to the archive folder, but I'm trying to work out why the option is not available as it usually is.

I've added the senders address to my contact list, and Junk filter is turned off.

I've attached two images showing the right-click context menu in both cases.

Information on how to add the Google 'Tasks' into Thunderbird Calendar: I have a gmail imap account using OAuth2 as Authentication Method.

File > New > Calendar, select 'Google Calendar' >  click on 'Next' choose or enter: gmail email address   > click on 'Find Calendars' Select 'My Tasks' and click on 'Subscribe'

You may be asked to enter password as per Oauth2 Authentication.

See image. It shows the selection available when you follow instructions. It shows where 'My Tasks' is located in the Calendar list. I selected 'My Tasks' and then clicked on 'Task'. Create the Task and save. Task is shown in Thunderbird and on the right side you can see the Task is displayed via the webmail access using a browser.
