I want to erase or preferably disable the "Recently Bookmarked" functionality when you go to the bookmarks part of the library. How do I do this? I don't see anything in the Support, despite doing searches using several different search terms. It is a strange thing to have without being able to erase it or disable it, especially since bookmarks saved during "private window" searches show up there.

So, I'm using Thunderbird 78.5.0 (32-bit).

Recently, it keeps telling my my password for my hotmail.co.uk email is wrong.

It's not; I can login directly to hotmail (outlook) without issue.

The thunderbird profile has always been imap, and I've tried resetting the password, but that doesn't work. It must be a recent change or a non-obvious setting?

Any help appreciated.

I selected the new HTTPS-Only mode in Firefox 83.0, and some URLs are being blocked, followed by the "Secure Connection Not Available" message. Yet, when I click "Continue to the HTTP site," the site URL is HTTPS, and the grey lock in the URL bar is in the fully secure position. Please let me know what this means, or whether this is a bug to be worked out. Thanks in advance.

Hi! So it seems that I get different SHA256sums depending on which browser I use and depending on what search engine I used to download the Firefox Installer.exe.

Using Edge on Windows 10, from google.se https://www.mozilla.org/sv-SE/firefox/new/ Gets the installer from: cdn.stubdownloader.services.mozilla.com, SHA256sum not listed here: https://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/84.0.2/

Using Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit), from startpage.com https://www.mozilla.org/sv-SE/firefox/new/ Gets the installer from: https://download-installer.cdn.mozilla.net, SHA256sum not listed here: https://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/84.0.2/

Using Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit), copy paste URL directly into browser: https://www.mozilla.org/sv-SE/firefox/new/ Gets the installer from: https://download-installer.cdn.mozilla.net Which then gets a SHA256sum match on https://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/84.0.2/

Is this something I need to be worried about? Is the Firefox Installer.exe just embedding some tracker from where it gets downloaded? Right clicking on the .exe -> Properties -> Digital Signature -> Highlight signature- > information says the signature is OK. Which means the Firefox installation should be OK, I guess?

Any information on this would be greatly appreciated!

Overnight I am unable to receive/send mail to/from Comcast. I am able to logon to the Comcast site and open my mail. I understand that Thunderbird does not save my password to access my mail provider. However, Tech support at Comcast is telling me that if the Comcast site is accepting my password, the problem must be in Thunderbird. I am using version 78.6.0 (32 bit version). I would really appreciate some help from the Community. Thanks, Big John (feeling like Little Lost John)
