Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but I've got a problem. On both my towers I have the Stop Button (and the Reload Button too) installed because I hate that little dual purpose thing that looks like a worm in an apple (small a apple) and can't be moved out of the URL bar to the bar I want it in. The installation on the tower (Windows 10 and updated today Firefox whatever that is) is working perfectly. On the machine running XP, with Firefox ESR 52.9.0, both buttons have died. I have removed and reinstalled. Not a flicker of life. AVG has been intermittently badgering me and offering to remove them, but I always tell it where to go (even though it won't) and close the warning. The people at AVG don't seem to understand that a lot of people outside AVG don't accept their prog's fatwa on certain extensions. What I'm wondering is, is it AVG being sneaky, or is there a reason why two extensions working happily for several months should go legs up? AVG warns me on the 10 machine too, btw. But the buttons still work. Before I made the Final Upgrade to ESR 52.9.0, I had real Mozilla buttons, but these ones by kiheru are the only replacements I can find. PS for software reasons I need both XP and 10.

in one of the recent previous versions it was possible to print the webpage e.g. to pdf. when there was a lot of other info/characters on the preview, you could choose to simplify the page and a lot of text over text was gone, now it that not possible anymore; print web pages is gobbled up to that the basic web text is not readable anymore. Would it be possible to get this 'simplify page' back on the new print window? I have not a screenshot with that option to show, sorry for that. Thank you in advance. Theo

I'm using Firefox 86.0 (x64) on Windows 10. When I click on the URL in the email, the address bar may start empty. It may be displayed correctly. I changed the option "Home page and new window" from Firefox home (default) to a blank page, and it improved. After that, even if I returned to the default, it did not reproduce. Please let me know. Is this the correct specification?

Hi,

I'm running TB 78.7.1 on Windows 10 and have my local folders saved to a USB drive. My USB was assigned as the F: drive and I'd configured TB to use this drive for the local folders. After many successful uses of the USB on the F: drive, the next time I started TB I noticed that my PC had assigned the USB to the G: drive. Within TB, I changed the local folder from F: to G: and restarted TB as prompted. After restarting, TB had deleted all the folders on my USB! The USB now has files such as:

[Gmail].sdb [Gmail].msf filterlog.html inbox.msf msgFilterRules.dat Templates.msf Trash Trash.msf Unsent Messages Unset Messages.msf

I found a file recovery tool and was able to restore some of the deleted files. This was a painstaking process. After restoring the files and folders on the USB I was able to get TB to recognize my local folders again using the F: drive. Today, I plugged in my USB and once again the PC assigned it to the G: drive while TB was configured with F:. Instead of changing the TB configuration, I decided to use 'Computer Management' and changed the USB drive from G: to F:. I kicked off TB but it still deleted my local folders and left files similar to the ones listed above. Why is TB behaving this way? I need to use the USB for my local folders since this is a shared PC. Is there a way to stop TB from deleting my local folders on my USB or is this a bug? Thanks in advance for any help!

When using the Firefox browser to navigate the links on this page using the TAB key, https://www.utrgv.edu/police/ there is something that receives focus after the last link "FAQ" on the Departments section on the bottom left side when the focus enters the embedded YouTube video that is not announced using the NVDA screen reader or visible on the screen. A second TAB key press shows the animated subscribe button.

I'm using the latest version of Firefox (86.0) on Windows 10.

Chrome and other browsers show visible activity - animating the subscribe button - when using the TAB key to switch focus from the FAQ link to the embedded video.

Thanks, Russell

There should be three rows, most of which I have edited to the sites I visit most. The option is still checked, with three rows being how many are shown. It is just a blank tab. Nothing is there anymore. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi there, It is the second time that I update Thunderbird, this time from 68 to 78 and ... my profile, all my settings and all emails are gone. I still see the different profiles %APPDATA%\Thunderbird\Profiles\ but am unable to use them. I went to Help > Troubleshooting Information > Profiles and clicked "About profiles" and try to set the 5 different profiles "as default" but none of them contain my Thunderbird 68 profile.

    • What I worry the most is the e-mails that I saved locally** (the other e-mails can easily be recovered when setting the e-mail accounts).

Hoping that somebody can help me recover them. Thanks

I have a multiple page email or document and I only want to print one single page. On the standard print dialog box there was an option to click "current page". This was fast as it only involved one single click and then hit print. After an updated a few months ago the option to print the current page is not longer highlighted and cannot be clicked. I have to chose "pages" then type in the page number then click the print button. Can the print current page radio button be engaged again in the config somewhere?
