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?

When starting an email with Write, for years I have been able to enter an address into the "To" window, pressing Enter would bring up another "To" window etc. until I was done with "To" entries. That is no longer possible: I can enter only one "To" entry. Also, something is odd about the color theme - the borders are a dun brown as though the Window that Write is showing in does not have the focus.

I'm using Win10 64 bit, and the latest version of Thunderbird 64bit. I was surprised about two weeks ago when this problem showed up to find that my version of Thunderbird was the 32bit version. I tried to see if I had done something to misconfigure Write with no joy, so I upgraded Thunderbird to the 64 bit version

This is keeping me from using Thunderbird to send mail. I'd appreciate any advice to get my Send functionality back.

Thanks in advance.

I had to reinstall Thunderbird on my Mac mini with Big Sur and when I try to set up the accounts, I get an error message that it is not connecting to the server. HELP!

I have all the correct POP3 and SMTP settings, all the correct passwords and we have tried this multiple times, carefully entering everything so as to avoid typos, but each time, it says that it finds the account, but then gives an error message that it can't find the server. Our ISP will not help with Thunderbird at all.

Some days ago I noticed a change in the outfit of the firefox basic website: It concerns the upper menue-line. There is still in the right upper corner the `x ´ , the sign for closing the page.( note the red flash in my picture!) But I am missing the `-´ and the square sign, with which I can hide and open a hidden page. So I don´t know, how to switch between several pages, i.e., I can´t make dissappear this page, in order to use the translation page.

Why does the Firefox print button launch the save window? When I open an attachment from an email to print, the print button automatically wants to save the document as a PDF. If you try to open the PDF after being saved, it will launch the printer function on my MacBook Pro.

I have tried the procedures in the "Fix Printer Problem" article, which does not resolve the problem. If I refresh Firefox, the print button will work for a few days and then reverts to saving files.

I have removed and redownloaded Firefox multiple times, and I get the same results. I have used Firefox for quite a while and never had this problem. This issue is something that has started about two months ago.

Yesterday Firefox, which I've used for years, suggested that I refresh. So I did. It created an "Old Firefox Data" folder. The newly refreshed Firefox had none of my bookmarks, etc., so I tried to add them by calling up the site and pressing Control+D, clicking on the star, etc. Nothing worked. Then I tried to add "Top Sites" to the opening page of the browser, putting in the name and URL. That didn't work either. Then I went to look at the suggestions on the Mozilla site as to what to do, either to allow the current version of Firefox to accept Top Sites & Bookmarks, or to reinsert the Old Firefox Data. I found the relevant pages but could make no sense of them. The recommendations are infinitely beyond my computer capacities, but even the simplest suggestions, like 'open the Old Firefox Data folder, highlight the items contained therein, right click, and press Copy' were unhelpful, since when I right-clicked, the menu that came up didn't include "Copy." Should I uninstall Firefox and download anew? I'm using Windows 7 and Firefox of approximately the same vintage. (Alas) I am also of a generation that remembers when electric typewriters were the big new thing, so I'm going to need very very simple instructions. . . . Many thanks, DKS

I've been using Thunderbird on Ubuntu for several years. Lately, every other time I turn on my machine, I open Thunderbird and it's completely blank - all the e-mail accounts whose details I painstakingly entered are gone, and I have to add them all back. This has happened at least twice in the past couple of weeks.

The first time it happened Thunderbird opened to a splash screen with some information about how my profiles had been... something something... I don't know, I just kind of clicked buttons until my e-mail accounts came back. Now there's not even that, it's just blank, and I don't see anything about importing past profiles.

How can I get my stuff back? 87.0b1 (64-bit) ubuntu-snap-build - 1.0.

TB has worked well for the last 10 years, but sometime in Nov or Dec we can't send emails through Comcast. They say it is a Thunderbird problem because the ports and security are configured right according to them. Lately it will work okay in the morning but not in the afternoon or evening. Today it won't send at all. I get a message as follows:

"An error occurred while sending mail: The mail server sent an incorrect greeting:  resomta-ch2-13v.sys.comcast.net resomta-ch2-13v.sys.comcast.net Excessive failed authentication, ESMTP server temporarily not available."

Why does it work sometimes and then not at all? I have had to revert to a gmail address or send comcast emails using the web. Wading through the mechanical twit that answers the phone at Comcast and then explaining repeatedly on every call to the agent is getting old, and I don't have the 2 to 3 hours it takes to converse with them. If the call gets escalated, it results in a determination that they will have to call me back, and they never do. Then, when I call again they say the case has been closed. Anybody experience this nonsense? What can be done to get the outgoing mail to work again?
