In Thunderbird 68.11.0 (64 bit) folder names that contain localized or special chars no longer work

This folder/dir used to work fine a few weeks/months ago... So I suspect an update to thunderbird or one of the plugins broke folders with non ASCII chars in name - or something like that.

The folder name that misbehaves contains chars like „â”, „î”, „()” and spaces.

Now it doesn't show messages, it shows the folder twice but I can't move messages in or out of it (at some point it had 2 messages from many shown but always unread and trying to read them gave an error message). I did try properties/repair folder on those 2 duplicates - but then even the 2 messages that were showing before in the list (but that I couldn't see the content of) dissapeared.

Now I have a duplicate folder with that name but old messages are not there, new ones that are supposed to get moved to it by filters remain in inbox, I can't move messages in or out of it.

Nothing from the developer tools error console caught my eye. What can I do to see what the problem is? Can I look in other places for errors or?

When I create a new login entry, the URL (website) data gets truncated when I save the entry.

For example, let's say the URL is: https://website.com/PathData/default.aspx?t=ss

When the entry is saved, the URL loses all the data after .com which is a problem. The URL results in a 404 if the complete web address information is missing.

Other password managers do not result in this data loss. I am trying to port over my password entries to Lockwise and I am resulting in some challenges b/c of this data loss.

Is it possible to adjust a setting to change this functionality?

Is it possible to add a "Name" field to the lockwise entries? Sometimes the URLs have nothing to do with the purpose of the entry and makes it hard to search.

For example, you may want to look up your Healthcare insurance provider login and the website is an obscure URL that is not related to the healthcare provider you associate with your health insurance provider.

Hola. ¿Cómo podría evitar que algunas páginas web se recarguen solas?

Fundamentalmente noto este problema cuando estoy leyendo algún artículo en un portal de noticias como clarin.com o lanacion.com.ar. Cada tanto tiempo, la página se recarga y vuelve al inicio del artículo, lo cual es muy incómodo para la lectura. He probado con poner accessibility.blockautorefresh en verdadero, pero no dió resultado. También probé una extensión llamada Stop autorefresh pero tampoco sirvió.

Una solución brutal tal vez sea desconectarme mientras leo, pero haya alguna solución más inteligente. Muchas gracias. Usando Mozilla Firefox 78.0.2

I tried to attach a file to an email when in my Protonmail account using the Firefox Focus browser. I simply could not attach. I would touch the paperclip icon, but nothing happened.

Later I tried to attach a file to an email with in my Outlook account using the Firefox Focus browser. I simply could not attach. I would touch the paperclip icon, but there was no response.

I wonder if there is a solution to this problem. I have taken the problem personally, for some reason, and perhaps I should not have.

I added the "stop autopause Youtube" extension, still pausing. I read the part where it says "this won't stop the autopause button from showing, but it will counteract it & resume." Not so. I'm logging off for the day, too tired of messing with it. Feel free to email me directly to janet1203@comcast.net whenever. Until then, I'll keep wasting my tv remote batteries & staying glued to the laptop, lol! Thanks so much!

I'm running FF v 68.11.0 on a ZenPad 3-10 running Android 7.0. I was getting intermittent "failed to send" pop-ups which I thought referred to crash reports. I cleared the app cache & data, uninstalled it and installed a fresh copy. When I tried to sign in, the correct password (which I use on my phone & desktop) was ruled incorrect. I double-checked on other 2 devices to make sure. So I followed the instructions to generate a recovery key, used it on the tablet and set a new password. The new password is not recognised on the other 2 devices. Do I need to use the same recovery key to reset passwords on the other 2 devices or should I generate a new key for each device and set the passwords to the same as that used on the tablet? This has been a 3 hour long frustrating exercise. I've used Firefox for almost 20 years accepting the frivolous cosmetic changes because it's been the most stable and secure browser I've seen. I use it exclusively except where the device OS requires another (e.g. Chrome on Android devices). Please help.

I downloaded Thunderbird 78, installed it, and added my accounts. I am using the Owl Add-On since many of my email accounts are MS Exchange.

I originally could not get the calendar tab to show up at all, View>Calendar was grayed out. I was searching for help and found that to switch to the Calendar tab, you can use CTRL+SHIFT+C so I tried that and the Calendar tab magically appeared and all of my calendar information was there.

I have 5 different calendars and I would like each one to show as a different color. When I go to Edit>Calendar Properties, only one of my calendars shows up.

I found something that says to double click on a specific calendar to edit its properties, but the calendar list that was on the left side in TB 68 is not showing up in TB 78. I just have a blank white column there.

It seems that something is broken. Any ideas on how to fix this issue?

I have html files on my website that, for some reason, when Firefox prints them to PDF it prints the text as images instead of text... except text that is in italics, which it prints as text just fine. I have no idea what the heck is going on here. The same files print fine from other browsers. The file I'm testing is here: https://universaltheosophy.com/hpb/transactions.html

Here's an example PDF printed from the above html file: https://universaltheosophy.com/hpb/transactions-text-print-firefox.pdf

Notice on the 2nd page, only the italic text is printed as text.

Any help with this will be much appreciated!

Edit: had a friend test print this in Firefox on a Mac and the PDF came out proper. I'm on a PC, Win 10.
