I just updated to 95.0. I use default Firefox home page with the Search bar. The background turned to black with this update. The background has also turned to black for some of my bookmarks or sites I go to. Settings, Language and Appearance, Colors, Text is Black and Background is White. I have never changed that. How do I get the background back to White?

I've spent a good deal of my free time over the last year trying to get an old profile to open up and continue to open up without the "other version of thunderbird is running" error message. TB is on a Ubuntu 21.10 dual boot PC and is the latest version. I've tried every suggestion I could find on the internet but to no avail. I'm at my wits end and will pay $50 USD for anyone who can walk me through the process of making my old (April 2020) profile work on TB. It's a huge file, maybe 10 GB and on a Ryzen 7 2700 processor on a Gigabyte X570 Gaming X PC. The SSD is a Samsung 980 Pro 2 TB.

Hello,

I'm having an issue with messages downloading to my inboxes over the past week or so...

Emails are not downloading automatically and loading to my inboxes. When I click the "Get Messages", only 3 emails at a time are being downloaded. I have restarted Thunderbird as well as my computer and neither have made any difference. I have not had an issue until recently - all emails were downloading without any manual intervention.

The server settings for my gmail accounts are: - pop.gmail.com, port 995 - check for new messages at startup - check for new messages every 5 minutes - automatically download new messages - leave messages on server

Has anyone experienced this issue? If so, what did you do to resolve? If there's any additional information I can provide, please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

Bob

For historical reasons many businesses continue to use HTML tables for layout management even though that has been unnecessary for almost a quarter century and has been formally deprecated by W3C for 11 years. Frequently I receive e-mails that contain the entire history of a discussion thread, and each item in that thread is a separate table cell. Thunderbird requires that I individually select each table cell and then delete it using the X icon either on the left edge or the top edge. I cannot just select the text contained in a number of table cells and delete it, as I could if the information were organized as divs with layout managed by CSS.

I would just like to see a discussion of the most efficient way to deal with these legacy e-mails.

Thunderbird 91.3 - Hangs entire Ubuntu 21.10 when trying to change time-zone settings for Calendar

I am running the latest Thunderbird 91.3 on my Ubuntu 21.10 installation. It works like a charm for all my gmail/live accounts and calendars. However in past three weeks, I had to change my time zones frequently - US Pacific, India, US Eastern Standard and Central European and each-time when I resumed my laptop, Ubuntu recognized the local timezone (upon local Wifi connection) and changed automatically. However Thunderbird does not have the same feature and I have to go into Settings and set time-zone manually. Each-time in trying to do so, I not-only found Thunderbird itself to become EXTREMELY sluggish (un-usable) with Ubuntu bringing up Force Stop dialog repeatedly. And furthermore it actually made entire Ubuntu (Chrome Browser and Libre Office apps - that I happened to be running at the same time) unusable and all locked up. I had to force restart Ubuntu and then somehow with extreme patience change the time zone setting in Thunderbird and then leave my laptop attended for quite a while (over an hour or so) and let Thunderbird go through syncing all my accounts (and Lightening sync all the calendars) before the laptop became usable again. Once I went through this process, everything works like a charm again.... Until I have to change time-zone again!

Am I doing something wrong? Is this is a known issue with Thunderbird 91.3? And lastly why an app is hanging the entire Operating System?

Recently returned to Firefox after using Brave for around 6 months.

I have a pinned tab with my Gmail inbox (logged in and active). My Preferences are configured like this:

  • Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed: Enabled
  • Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed: Manage exceptions: "https://mail.google.com" & "http://mail.google.com"
  • History: Firefox will "Remember history"

(See attached screenshot)

With my Gmail tab active, when I close Firefox and reopen I expect my Gmail tab to be active but I have to login again everytime. When I used Firefox previously (before my Brave stint) I know that I managed to successfully configure Firefox to allow this. Any help would be appreciated.

PS. I do not have the Multi-Account Containers add-on active.

I am using a newish FF profile for my usual web browsing and I also have another FF profile (from an older computer) which I only use for one purpose and that is to look at my recently deceased partner's facebook (FB).

My issue is, I accidentally deleted my partner's FB account from the FB log on page and now have no access to that account. I was hoping by restoring my "other" FF profile I could restore access via cookies etc.

Is there any way i can do this??

Long-press and open last bookmark loads the page, but again, frozen. Actually, it did work once after the update, until I went into settings and told it to open last tab instead of a new one...
