With every update, Firefox becomes more and more unusable. It's been 20 minutes so far on this morning's session, but the tab won't open. And Options won't let me clear data as those tabs are dark. It's hard to be nice when I read these same complaints in forums all over the internet. It's only getting worse, and the recommendations are always the same -- clear your cache, remove extensions, blah, blah, blah. No, nothing works! It's time to blow it up and start over. Not to mention that it's always crashing or not responding. It's just about as useless as Edge and Chrome. What a pity. (Oh, I just noticed -- 27 minutes later -- that the Clear Cache tab is now active. Better late than never, I suppose.)

How to recover "Local Folder"

Hi,

It is the second time that the following happens to me: I updated Thunderbird 68 to 78 and all my datas are lost, especially e-mails, calendars and local folders.

I do not worry about my e-mail (which are on the provider's server Imap), or my calendars (which are on my phone), but I really worry about my local folders, as I do not have any back-up of the e-mails located in this folder.

Could you please help me to recover the local folder and all the e-mails in it?

Thanks.

Greetings,

Today, I went to access my Bookmarks, & found them "Empty", other wise "Missing"!

I found the "How to recover missing Bookmarks" topics, & that did bring back,what I consider to be My "Permanent Books", bu the section called "Other Bookmarks" will not come back, no matter how many times I go through the "Restore Bookmarks".

I Absolutely need that section to be restored, for I had many files in that section that I updated daily, that I planned to move to the "Bookmarks Section".

How can I get get this section restored?

I have used sync for long on several devices and different operating systems (Win 7, Win 10, IOS) in parallel. Most interesting and useful is for me synchronisation of the toolbars with Bookmarks. It worked fine up to today. Today I opened Firefox and found my bookmarks as they were about two years ago. Oops... so I tried to synchronize but failed. No changes were applied to my bookmarks. I assume, my bookmarks are also being stored on several other devices I used for Firefox. However the newest sinchronization on the mozilla server does not contain the accurate valuable data. How can I manage to save sync data from a destinct device to the sync server and determine that as the current data set to be valid for synchronization with all my other devices? In other words: set the direction for synchronization. I did not find this option on my current (82.0.3 (64-Bit)) installation. Could anybody help me? Thanks Juergen

Good day, There !

Just began to utilize Thunderbird : many excellent aspects ! I'm very grateful to original Giver and Any of you "following".

But : my FIRST need about having such technical help is

to save messages though without getting to full-up of the webmail account

( an address which is small-room-for-free, and I can't extend it or get a payed larger one since don't possess any money account WHEREVER ) : how can I remove, cancel, either the single message AND A FULL FOLDER on the webmail site ONLY ? . . . how can I keep solely the recorded message offline ? . . . the file or folder which exists on Thunderbird = pc's hard-disc only ?

Thank you for your altruistic time of help ( I give this "direction" of time in other fields, by full physical person ; and should/would you need any information, words-help, about "Natural growing and eating food, Sustainable land-cares, Principles of universal truth", and want to "reap" for this first-giving of yours you're offering "here", don't hesitate to email me ).
