I may have to stop using Firefox if I can't resolve this problem

After a few weeks certain Ebay pages start to not display correctly - writing goes small, moves to the left, big black arrows appear, other pages are alright

I know if I clear 'all cookies' it will solve the problem - but then I have to reload passwords etc on all the sites I visit

I've tried

  • switching of tracking protection on the ebay page
  • selecting and deleteing all Ebay cookies under 'managed data'

but neither solve the problem

The only solution I know to work is to clear all cookies - but I really can't be doing this every couple of weeks

I am using a version of Thunderbird that is about 15 years old and always have to find an old version when I buy a new computer. What is missing on the newer versions, is a way to delete emails from the main page, without opening them. There used to be a delete button above the emails, and one could click the first email to darken but not open it, and then choose delete at the top. I am a contester, so get about 300 - 400 advertising emails a day, so like to just keep my finger on delete, and click it as each new letter moves up to the top when the first one is deleted. I can then scan the subject line, which is almost always a solicitation, and then keep clicking delete, delete, delete, unless it is a "real" email, which I then open and read, before deciding whether to delete it, respond to it, or save it permanently. I don't see anything in the options above the list of new emails that allows me to delete anymore (since it was dropped about 15 years ago), but maybe there is a keyboard key that would act in that manner for me? But using such an old version has become far too frustrating now, since it hasn't been supported for at least a decade. There are irritations such as pictures not able to load, and error boxes that have to be x'ed out repeatedly, before I can see the contents of the emails I actually open. I really would like to stick with Thunderbird if possible, so hope that there is an answer to my problem. Thank you.

Every time I type this into my windows run dialog, %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles, so I can search for it, my computer totally shuts down!! Firefox had a meltdown of some kind a week ago where every time my pointer touched the open window it locked everything up totally. I finally had it looked at and the person had to uninstall firefox and reinstall it. I was trying to recover my old tabs from before that but now it keeps doing this. Any help?

Hello, I didn't open Firefox from the 8th, I closed it normally as I always do with no worries since Firefox always launches with all my tabs+bookmarks saved and never remove cronology by itself. Guess updating must have done something, so I've read on the net and then here about some probable solutions, did find some files like recovery.jsonlz4 and .baklz4 along previous.jsonlz4 and sessionstore.jsonlz4 and saved them up in another folder, putting them back in the profile I've had on Firefox, but that didn't seem to have helped at all, Firefox still launches with nothing on and I don't know what to do anymore, so I've registered to ask for support here. Thanks.

After returning from my wisdom teeth removal, I accidentally told firefox to forget the last 5 minutes of history, and now all of my tabs (including a few very important signup pages) have disappeared. I understand that this option says that the action "cannot be undone," but is there any way for me to reopen or recover those closed windows? I am panicking a bit right now.

Thank you so much.

Firefox 87.0.0-rc.1

I have a bookmark that I created to an online Bible. I have to create and edit the bookmark, because as soon as I open it, it redirects me to whatever my previous reading location was. The URL I end up with might look like this.

https://www.esv.org/Matthew+8/

Where the URL I want bookmarked needs to just be "https://www.esv.org/".

So I create and edit the bookmark, I have what I want. Whenever I open it, it redirects me to the correct last location.

Now I want to put this bookmark on my home screen. How do I do it?

I see where I can "Add to Home screen" in the menu, but this nets me a home screen button with the entire URL that will always return me to that specific location, not the edited URL that I want.

I hope that makes sense. Thanks.

I have transferred by Thunderbird profile to my alternate PC in the past, but this time I goofed. I wonder if you can help.

I copied this folder from my main PC while TBird was closed. C:\Users\Elliott\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\xm77vp65.default

On my alternate PC, I deleted it *******.default profile folder and replaced it with the one from my old PC. TBird would not open. I looked for help and when to the %appdata% folder and deleted Thunderbird. Now TBird opened but wanted me to set up my accounts. I canceled out.

I then tried copying over the folder from my main PC but this time put it IN the folder labeled ******.default instead, i.e. I copied it one level lower so the profile name on the alternate PC remained.

Still when I open TBird it wants me to see up all my email accounts and passwords again. How do I start over with the copying process so I can avoid all that work? Thank you.

Problems began with AOL mail, when I tried to send replies. I kept receiving repeated failures connecting with valid password. It seemed I could receive mail and send mail to trash or junk. I finally tried deleting and re-adding AOL mail, but now lost all folders but inbox and trash (all still available through FireFox browser though). I decided to just delete AOL from Thunderbird, Suddenly afterward, without touching anything related to Hotmail or Gmail, opening Thunderbird does nothing but clock trying to open Hotmail or Gmail inboxes. I have had no problems with those two, until today. I even turned off McAfee scanning to see if antivirus may be the cause suddenly today. I am at a loss as to what to do further. I can still get all my mail through the browser, but having all 3 mails in Thunderbird was convenient!
