Before I updated to FF 103.0.1, links I clicked on in e-mails in Outlook would open in an FF window using my existing default profile. Since updating to FF 103.0.1, these links open in an FF window with a virgin profile. If no such window was already open (from clicking on another e-mail link) this will be a new FF window, even if FF was already open with my normal profile. As a result, e-mail links to PDFs open the files directly in FF (instead of asking me where to download them to, as I have configured in my profile) and I am missing my stored passwords when the links lead to websites that require login.

This is a real PITA! Is there anything I can do other than revert to an earlier FF version? Please help!

I am running Windows 10 2021H2.

Older version 91 works fine, but I can't roll back because of database conversion. Now I actually can't use Thunderbird because I can't read incoming mails.

Hello, I have recently changed my Host and in the process of trying to reconfigure my server details for my new mail account I accidentally removed my account, thereby losing all mails and folders including my customer database, which leaves me feeling bereft.

Looking at similar questions it seems that it is possible to restore the lost mails and folders but unfortunately I am not that savy with this stuff and find it all rather difficult and scary.

Are there any step by step instructions on how I can restore my account or simply get access to my lost mails and folders ?

Thank you very much for any assistance.

So I have a website that had SSL revoked, but I just got it reissued and installed/activated.

Since it's back I'm still having issues connecting to the website on Firefox/Safari still, but not chrome.

Even though if I personally fix the error issue it's probably happening to other people using the same browser (I think?)

So my question is will the error ever go away on itself over time or is my website inaccessible to anyone using firefox unless they fix the error themselves in their OWN browser settings?

I recently replaced my old laptop by a new one after battery life issue (and for free thks total refund warrantly). But the new laptop unfortunately come with windows 11.

and like with windows 10, FF 97+ force the windows OS color theme style for checkboxes over the websites stylised ones (like a dark themed website with its own original soft small dark gray checkboxes being replaced by big light blue windows ones making the design ugly) I tried the same trick as my former laptop by switching widget.non-native-theme.enabled to "false", but it caused a tab crash on all page using checkboxes. Restarting firefox solved the crash issue, but even if slightly different than native-theme.enabled on "true"(smaller and dark blue) the checkboxes are always a single forced windows like style on all sites

The trick worked easily on windows 10, how to force firefox to correctly use the websites own style for checkboxes and forms with windows 11? I don't want windows style take over the design of site i visiting.

This is what I think:

The release notes reiterate that the version is only available as a direct download. One can only assume that if 102.1.0, for example, is already installed, that there must be some preferred procedure for using the download to update the existing installation.

Unfortunately there is no mention of any such procedure. There is no README. There is no INSTALL file. There is an executable called updater but running it yields:

Usage: updater patch-dir install-dir apply-to-dir [wait-pid [callback-working-dir callback-path args...]]

which is far from explanatory.

Since these updates are obviously generated by some sort of build script, it would seem to be a simple matter to add or clarify the update procedure. Once done, the work would not need to be repeated.

I would urge the developers to remember that not everyone who uses Thunderbird is a mozilla developer. The users lack many of the skills and background that are second nature to the developers. Without a bit more clarity, the average user cannot benefit from all the developer's hard work unless they can actually install the updates.

Thank you

Before COVID, I would travel about once a year. I would just copy the profile from my office email machine to my laptop, set the desktop computer to stop downloading emails (the laptop was always set to leave them on the server), and go traveling. When I returned and turned my regular email machine back on, turn the "leave on server" off, and download all the emails to it.

The COVID break from traveling meant that some file formats had changed. When I tried to load the v78 profile from my desktop to v68 on the laptop, I got a lot of errors, and went on to do other chores. Now I've come back to this issue and decided to just load v 102 to my laptop. I want to be able to load all those emails and the address book. Does v 102 read earlier versions of files, and which ones? I have a large volume of emails that I want to load, review, and then archive about 99% of them. I really need to retrieve the address books, get rid of duplicates and dead addresses, and then save about 85% of them a vcards before deleting them from the address book.

It would really help to have a list of the files that changed with each version, so that we can see what files we need to look for.

I'm hoping that 102 will convert all previous formats, and if not, I can have a list so I can migrate these v 68 files to 102 when it imports them.

Win 7 Home Premium Firefox Version 103.0.1 Private Browsing Mode ('Never Remember History' is set)

What I Did:

-'Privacy & Security'->'Cookies and Site Data', 'Clear Data.' -When 'Clear Now,' Cached Web Content; is clicked, it does not reset to zero (It used to clear completely). -The browser webpage has been refreshed, the browser closed and reopened, and the computer restarted but the cache does not reset.

Issue Started: The morning (Pacific time) of June 26 (Before then, clicking 'Clear Data' reset the KB to 0 without having to close and reopen the browser first, without having to 'refresh' the page after clearing the cache, and without having to restart the computer first.

Someone stated that PB mode has be left temporarily and the disk cache has to be cleared in 'Regular Mode' by choosing 'Custom Setting For History' and removing the check-mark beside 'Always use Private Browsing mode.

1. I do not see the option Always use Private Browsing mode.' 2. Am I performing these steps before a 'session' is started 'OR' after a session (but before closing the browser?). 3: Do the above steps have to be performed after 'every 'session is ended or only the first time that the 'session' is ended? A:

Under 'Cookies and Site Data,' it states: 'In permanent private browsing mode, cookies and site data will always be cleared when Firefox is closed' but this simply is not true 'unless' I am missing a detail?

All of this unnecessary 'effort' just to clear 100% of the disk cache, after every session, that should be as simple as clicking 'Clear Data.'

Thunderbird constantly "Not Responding" suddenly, perhaps related to Win10 update

I have been a happy user of Thunderbird for >>10 years, and it has been solid most of the time. But now, it suddenly has been in a mode of constantly "Not Responding". It will be completely non-responsive for maybe 30 minutes, and then partially recover until I do something else, using about 18% of CPU and < 500MB memory. At this point, it is essentially not functional, but it is not crashing completely.

Sometimes I get message that the mail host did not respond to DELE command or that the mail host is not responding due to timeout. I figure this is just because it has reached the max timeout.

I have installed the latest version of Thunderbird, (102.1.0), deleted all the .msf files and went to each folder and rebuilt it. Real-time virus protection turned off for testing. This is running on Windows 10. This sort of started after the recent Windows 10 update, so perhaps other people are encountering this. I did not see this exact same problem.

Sometimes it hangs really badly and provides a little tiny image of the window, about 1/2" tall and 2" wide. Then I have to kill the process. I attached a typical process summary when this is hung. It is completely not responsive for many minutes each time. I don't get an error message every time. It definitely hangs if I check for mail from the server, or sometimes try to delete a message. Here, I started Thunderbird in safe mode, with no plugins, and with real-time virus scanning disabled.

Attempted to get email, It hung (Not Responding) After 30 minutes, received this message:

Sending of password for user ____ did not succeed. Mail server mail.cognisys.com responded: Disconnected for inactivity during authentication.

Login to mail.cognisys.com failed with username ____ failed. (retry, enter new password, cancel) Entered password. Then it accepted password.

Downloading message NNN of 1078

Proceeded without problem to message 198 of 1078

Then, "Login to server mail.cognisys.com with username ____ failed. (retry, enter new password, cancel) Hourglass... can't enter new password. Started hourglass at 10:06am.

10 minutes later: "The DELE command did not succeed. Error marking a message as deleted. Mail server responded: Disconnected for inactivity."

was able to delete messages in the Inbox and to reply to one email.

Selected mailbox "WhiteBulkBox" Hung again, starting at 10:48am Process display looks similar to the clip attached. recovered at 11:04am Selected folder properties, then Repair Folder. Hourglass. not responding. 11:43 Recovered. Random request for password popped up. WhiteBulkBox should be repaired. Clicked "Repair Folder" again. There are only 501 messages in the folder. 504MB size. Hourglass at 11:45. Same process listing. 12:24 noticed it had recovered. Clicked ok without re-repairing the folder. Clicked on first item in the folder. Hourglass. 12:25pm Same process listing. 21 to 37% CPU Gave up at 2pm. Killed the process. restarted in troubleshoot mode, 2:01 pm. Hourglass. Recovered by 2:40. opened Inbox of one email. Hourglass at 2:44 3.24pm was able to delete several files form Inbox. Now it is empty. Properties, repair folder. Hourglass. Crazy that it would have such trouble repairing an empty folder. recovered at 4:07pm. Now show 0 messages in Inbox, but size on disk is still 87.8MB. That seems sort of strange. Clicked "Repair Folder" again. Finished quickly. There was one message in the folder, marked ***SPAM***. This is strange because I had turned off automatic checking for new messages. Hourglass started at 4:11 pm 4:35pm recovered. Checked server settings, all set to not automatically check for new messages, did not make any further changes. Selected inbox of one user, Repaired Folder, finished quickly. But then went into hourglass mode. 4:37pm 4:57 recovered. Clicked on folder "WhiteInBox", clicked "Repair Folder" no hangup. Back to WhiteBulkBox. Clicked it, Not responding. 5:00pm 5:20pm recovered. This WhiteBulkBox seems to be a key problem, and may be the reason getting new mail fails. Right-clicked the folder, Properties, Repair Folder, hourglass. 5:22pm 6:16pm recovered. clicked OK Now try to delete messages in WhiteBulkBox. clicked first message, message displayed. no problem at first. press DEL key, hourglass. 6:17pm still hung, 7:30pm. I think like the last time, this will not recover, but I will let it run to see. Meanwhile, I will submit this information and hopefully someone might have a similar experience. Please help! Otherwise, I will have to abandon Thunderbird.
