I went to open Thunderbird and received a message that says:

the item 'thunderbird.exe' that this shortcut refers to has been changed or moved, so this shortcut will no longer work properly

I keep hundreds of my client folders in Thunderbird and I cannot access them, it just seems to have gone !? My stomach is in a knot !

If I look in my program folders under Mozilla Thunderbird there are only x2 folders, one called 'extensions' which is empty, and another called 'tobedeleted' which has only one file in it called: rep73feeee9-1bcf-ae16-4e52739a8944  ?

If I do a search for thunderbird there is only one result, which is the one above.


I know that my 'Profile' is still on my system.

I have had a similar thing before and a kind Man helped me get it back. Can anyone help Please ?

I've migrated to Firefox from Chrome and am getting everything as close as possible to my Chrome setup. This is a usability issue when I zoom on an image, that has a larger version. Chrome allows me to zoom to the full extent of the image, but Firefox screen shakes and doesn't allow the same detail. Screen recording and links below.

Dear Firefox Development Team,

I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to request the implementation of a feature in Firefox that I believe would greatly enhance user experience and accessibility on the web. Specifically, I am referring to the text fragment feature (#:~:text=) that is currently supported in browsers based on the Chromium engine, such as Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.

The text fragment feature allows users to link directly to specific pieces of text within a webpage, facilitating more precise navigation and making it easier to reference exact portions of content. This is particularly useful for academic citations, sharing specific excerpts from lengthy articles, and improving overall user interaction with web content.

For example, a URL formatted as https://example.com#:~:text=desired%20text%20fragment directs users not just to the page, but to the exact location of the specified text, highlighting it for easy identification. This can save users significant time and improve the efficiency of information retrieval.

Given Firefox's commitment to innovation and user-centric design, I believe that integrating this feature would be a valuable addition. It would not only bring Firefox in line with other major browsers in terms of functionality but also enhance its appeal to users who rely on this precise method of navigation.

I hope you will consider this suggestion and look forward to potentially seeing this feature in a future release of Firefox.

Thank you for your continued dedication to improving the Firefox browser.

Best regards, Grey Ronin

I use Thunderbird for 18 email accounts and I have the "Inbox" of each of them in the "Favorite Folders" list. I would like to put them in the order of my preference, e.g. ones I use most on top of those I use seldom. It seems like I ought to be able to just click and drag them into order, but that doesn't work. How can I do that?

Hello all I just started my thunderbird after years of outlook. And I have donated money I hope this helps to keep this alive. With recent 2FA changes I have had to move here. it is years of old emails and for now I am getting them to review later.

But everyone seems nice here.

When I am downloading I notice limits on number of messages in one mailbox in Thunderbird. One mailbox is everything inside one email username right?

Sometimes it stops at 10, 000 Is the limit based on thunderbird or the email server I am getting my emails from ???

Thank you for anticipated help!

TB 115.8.0.1, Mac OS Sonoma 14.5 Over the years my Address Book has acquired many separate entries for the same individual, with two or more (obsolete) email addresses, for example. Also, one with email address only, and another with phone number, plus various pieces of contact data in one or both cards. If there is a way to compare, choose correct data, and combine contact files, I can't find it. If not, I'd like to propose an enhancement. Thank you.

I have been experiencing a problem with Cloudflare specifically on one site (character.ai) and when the verify you are human pops up. It takes me in a seemingly infinite loop. On the Cloudflare community site they say it could be because of things like adblock but even without any adblock or anything of the sort on it does the same thing. Sadly Cloudflare community doesn't support being used on Firefox. So maybe they don't support being used on Firefox in general? I have contacted the actual websites support but they don't seem to even read submitted inquiries because I never hear anything back from them except the automated message they received it. It is now preventing me from using certain things in general which as before it wasn't that big of a deal but recently they changed the site layout and still allowed you to use the old layout but the verification blocks you from using the old layout. The first one is one from a couple of weeks ago when it only effected me trying to open things in a separate tab and the second one is the newer one which prevents me from accessing the old layout. I'm not sure what to do about it since nothing I specifically could do to solve it has helped. I have opted into sharing data under troubleshooting IDK how well that'll help.

Enige weken geleden heb ik mijn mailbestand geexporteerd naar externe harde schijf als back up. Deze externe harde schijf (D:) heb ik nu continue aan mijn laptop gekoppeld. En mijn mail account met bijbehorende postbussen functioneert normaal. Maar als ik nu mijn externe harde schijf loskoppel is wel mijn mailaccount zichtbaar maar zijn alle onderliggende mappen verdwenen, zoals IN, OUT, SEND, ETC. (de lokale mappen zijn wel zichtbaar). Bij de serverinstellingen staat dat berichten worden opgeslagen in D:\ Back up mail dd-mm-jjjj Ik wil graag dat alle postbussen weer op mijn C:\ schijf worden opgeslagen zodat ik de externe harde schijf weer kan verwijderen. Hoe zet ik de mappen weer op C:\ ?

I've got my "homepage and new windows" setting set up with several "ext+container links so that my selected websites open in their respective containers : e.g. ext+container:name=Personal&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2F%3Fsk%3Dh_nor

I open facebook in 2 seperate containers so that I can maintain 2 seperate personalities under facebook - e.g. I am a group admin within one, just a group member in another.

I have 2 urls defined in my "homepage and new windows" setting for these :

ext+container:name=Personal&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2F%3Fsk%3Dh_nor ext+container:name=Facebook&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2F%3Fsk%3Dh_nor

This was working fine without any issues. My sites opened up when I started my web browser and everything.

Recently, firefox has started up but my container tabs do not load automatically, I am getting a confirmation (I will post a screen capture as a comment).

Is there a way to turn this off and just open the tabs without a confirmation?
