How do I disable the ANNOYING message box I get every time I want to send a message to the trash folder. Thunderbird keeps asking me if I want the message deleted to save disk space. This just started in the past week. I want my deleted messages to go to the trash folder and I will manage that folder. I can't seem to find anything in settings that lets me disable this option.

In an announcement, Mozilla expressed urgent plans to start filtering out “disinformation” at the browser level before it even has the chance to show up in an internet search or on a website.

Rehashing the same scripted lies about the “siege” and “take-over” in Washington, D.C., that resulted in a handful of people gaining access to the Capitol building on Jan. 6, Mozilla says every tool in the arsenal needs to be deployed to prevent “white supremacy” from being “reinforce[d]” online.

“… as reprehensible as the actions of Donald Trump are, the rampant use of the internet to foment violence and hate, and reinforce white supremacy is about more than any one personality,” wrote Mozilla’s Mitchell Baker.

“Donald Trump is certainly not the first politician to exploit the architecture of the internet in this way, and he won’t be the last. We need solutions that don’t start after untold damage has been done.”

How do I talk to someone at firefox. I posted a question in support yesterday only to find a atupid answer The people who answer questions here, for the most part, are other users volunteering their time (like me), not Mozilla employees or Firefox developers. So why would you have a support page that does not provide support at all. That is incredibly stupid. What is the point of using firefox support for this buggy broken barely useable browser if nobody from fiefox actually uses them. That is the atupidest thing ever. I don't want some random stranger trying to help out I want to talk to an actual firefox employee. THAT IS WHAT SUPPORT IS FOR. TALKING TO AN ACTUAL EMPLOYEE FROM FIREFOX. Don't tell me to use feed back as nobody at all from firefox ever uses feedback. It is just a cheap bullshit excuse so firefox doesn't have to do anything about their broken shitty buggy browser

Firefox android is a broken unusable browser. your browser is [removed] slow it freezes hangs and [removed] up all the time. It is a barely usable browser. Typing on Facebook freezes all the time or letters don't show up when typing. I don't think firefox cares at all about mobile. It has been buggy and freezing and hanging since firefox mobile was first released. So many people have complained about how bad buggy and broken firefox mobile is but firefox is happy to put out a [removed] unusable product. Worst android browser ever by far

I see that perhaps due to a 03/24/2021 update to 87.0 the option to right click and image and choose "View Image Info" is missing and I use that all the time when working on WWW sites.

I read "We've removed items from the Library menu that weren't used often..." and wonder where they got the idea this item was not used often.

Does that mean it was not used often by people at Firefox so they deemed it unnecessary?

Is there a way to manually make some adjustment to get that back in or roll back the update?

As a new Thunderbird user (and old outlook user), I tried to tidy my gmail folders up.

Basically I dragged my important gmail folders to the default Inbox above the italic (Gmail). All worked fine until the next time I opened Thunderbird when I found the the folders that I had moved were gone/

I have looked in the imap folder on my C drive and they are not there either. To add to this they are no longer in Gmail. Seems that the are lost forever? 

However if I do a search within Thunderbird, the folder name appears on the left hand side with an email count that seems to reflect what's in the folder.

There are some important emails for me and I would like to recover them.

Is this possible and how ?

Appreciate any help

Got one response from a volunteer but that response, unfortunately, was for Windows. I'm on a Mac...

When I select the bookmark, Firefox does nothing, apparently.

iPhone works just fine on sites that Firefox won't access, so it's not the modem or the ISP.

Thanks in advance!

I hav been using my Gmail in Firefox with no problem until about 3 days ago. Now when I try to sign in to my account I get a pop up window which states “This browser or app may not be secure. Try using a different browser. Etc.”

I have tried another browser (chrome) and Gmail works fine, but I like working in Firefox. But at this rate I may dump Firefox and go to another browser.

I have looked through the other support group questions and solutions. I have tried them all and nothing is resolved. Clearing cache, clearing cookies, using a private window, managing data, using forget about this site, generating a new profile, disabling extensions, loading in safe mode, etc.

I have Firefox version 83.0 (64 bit). My operating system is windows 7.

Any other suggestions?
