Im trying to get browser notifications to show up on top of a game im running but they never appear while focused in the other window (running in borderless fullscreen).

i tried changing focus assist options in win10 as suggested somewhere but i dont think i had that on in the first place, and it didnt fix the issue.

Also, any way to turn off the transparency on the notification popup would be a cherry on top

I have 68.6.0 on my Mac and could not update because there was a problem in the software on the following versions that did not allow and update on Mac's.

If I down load 78.3.2 how do I get all of my emails, folders and address book on this version from my existing version?

I have tried down loading it but the set-up is terrible and convoluted. I have tried keeping my profile and inserting that, but compared to earlier versions of Thundebird the set up is completely unintuitive and what ever you click on does nothing.

In years gone by, you simply removed the new profile and inserted the old one in Finder>Go>Library>Thunderbird> Profile and everything was there. Now it's a mess.

Hi, at our workplace we use Firefox exclusively for our point-of-sale system and as such, print lots of reciepts and labels. We updated Firefox to version 82.0 this morning and now nothing prints correctly by default. When opening print preview, no matter what, it's a blank page. I have adjusted the settings in about:config, reset the print settings, messed with margins, etc. Basically every possible suggested fix for the problem I could find. After multiple hours, we still cannot get anything to print from Firefox UNLESS you go into the print settings, and click "preferences" in the Windows dialogue box (even if you don't change a single thing), only then will it work perfectly every time. This isn't an acceptable option though as we need it to work rapidly and automatically each time though the browser.

Our printer is set up correctly, up to date drivers, etc. All programs in windows will print fine, Chrome and Edge print fine, so I'm assuming it's specifically a Firefox issue. This is a receipt printer, and I noticed Firefox defaults to 8.5x11 size paper despite it using standard 73mm receipt paper. But, like I said, no matter what the preview is a blank page and that's what prints.

I'm stumped on this one. Printer is a TSP100 if that matters. Help!!

I BELIEVE, but am not certain, the above described subject and topic are instrumental to the issue I am having. I like to stream a Canadian sports site called Sporstnet Now. Up until a few weeks / months ago every time I clicked to open that site the streaming started automatically. Now that is not happening on a regular basis. Typically when I click on the website it now does not start automatically. To resolve this I can "sign out" and then sign in using my login credentials. This is obviously a time waster. Once I am signed in again, I might be able to stop the streaming and log back in automatically for the next few hours, but certainly by the next morning the streaming does not start automatically and I need to go through the login process described above. There must be a setting somewhere to allow the automatic streaming to start even if I have not visited that website in the last 2 - 3 days. Any help? suggestions? thoughts? Thank you.

I was running 68.12.1 when this problem started whereby the application runs slowly and freezes frequently with a 'not responding' banner. This is accompanied by a message that says downloading 1 in All Mail. When in this mode other applications appear to either freeze or run slow. This may last for up to 5 minutes and occasionally comes up with the message box inviting me to stop the programme. I have reduced the size of the All Mail folder and the Inbox has only about 12 messages in it. The folders have all been compacted regularly. I decided to opt for the update and we are now running 78.3.3 32bit. I have disbled Windows search and performed a clean reboot - neither makes any difference even with all startup items disabled. OS is Windows 10 Home V1909 OS Build 18363. I don't like relying on Gmail but I might have to as Thunderbird is close to unusable. Any bright ideas?

I keep getting a message to update Mozilla Thunderbird; and yet if I do, Thunderbird totally breaks. I don't dare update it and would like it to stop popping up the message. Can I do that?

How does it break?

When I update, it no longer allows me to use the "self-signed certificate" for MY OWN SERVER! I have tried every single possible way of manually installing the certificate; but it will not allow it. 68.8 allows it just fine with a message that pops up basically saying "do you really trust so and so is so and so" [with because it is my own server, that is asking, "do you trust that you are yourself?" And, yes, I do trust that I am myself, so I click permanently accept the certificate; and it just works. Newer versions stopped working that way; at one point (I believe it was 68.10 or 68.11) I was still able to manually install the certificate; but even that stopped working.

To put for a very apt analogy. Let us say that Thunderbird is a bank for e-mail; it stores e-mail messages; and conducts transactions (deposits/downloads, withdrawals/server deletions, and check processing/connections to servers) with the account owner and those the account owner works with.

A self-signed certificate is literally the same as a person signing their own check and giving it to someone else. The bank is SUPPOSED to process that check; the drawing bank should validate the signature for sure, but the bank that the check is depositing in should have no say. [Thus I have no problem with a warning popping up saying -- do you validate this signature.]

But, can you imagine one day taking your paycheck to the bank and the bank saying "no we will not accept paychecks that aren't notarized." What is the process of notarizing a signature? It is having a third party (a trusted licensed notary public) verify that the person signing (whatever--in this case a bank check) is actually the person they say they are. That is literally what having a third party trusted root certificate signature and chain is doing; it is notarizing the signature on the security certificate.

While that may make sense for someone conducing business with someone that they do not know. It makes no sense for an employer to have to notarize the paychecks for his employees; especially when that is to the tune of several hundred dollars per year. Employees already know who their employer is; and already have established that trust.

Again, when I am providing e-mail only to employees on my company server; there is no reason at all that Thunderbird (which has nothing to do with my business; is simply only the bank account for e-mail transactions) should require me to pay extra money to establish trust that their employer is really their employer.
