I am currently using two separate profiles for Firefox browser - one personal and one for work. I have both open at all times on one machine. When I click on a link from Slack (for work), it always opens in my personal Firefox browser which it usually cannot open since I need to be logged into my work account.

How do I set it up so that the link will open in the profile that was most recently used vs the default profile?

How do I delete individual autocomplete entries on Firefox for Android?

All responses I see are for the PC version. This question was asked and archived 6 years ago, and the only answer was that it couldn't be done. You can only delete all personal data, not individual entries. Please tell me that Firefox figured out how to do this, given 6 years to work on it.

This URL filename has multiple dots in the filename which I believe is the issues.

Is this just a FireFox bug or a configuration setting I need to change?

I clicked on the Private Network icon when FF loaded, before I got the prompt to input my master password. After I input my master password FF crashed. After restarting FF, Now Private Network is asking me to "Login to FF account" when I click on the already dimmed Private network account. But, I'm already logged in. Also, When I enter my user/pass on the prompt to login again, I get a alert to check email and put the code in... That code never works(see attached screenshot). I get a red alert bar on the email code screen that there is a security issue.

So is there a timeout for such a issue? or ?

Hi, I'm currently operating version 68.8.0 on mozilla thunderbird as my mail client from my BT server. When I signed onto my e-mail account I've lost all my folders, in excess of 50 with items in each, from the last 6 years and all my e-mails older than April 2020. It has also put all my old deleted e-mails back into my deleted folder from the last 6 years totalling in excess of 7,000. Can anyone let me know how to restore the account, it was okay one day, then the next had completely changed. I'm not computor literate so would need quite basic detailed instructions if you could help.

My company recently gave us new email addresses which are with office365. I have been using TB for many years and never had issues until now implemanting this email address. TB sets up the email automatically OK and I can receive emails but it times out when sending. I have reviewed the current TB help forums however they seem to deal with whether or not an exchange server is being used. I've asked our IT guy if IMAP is enabled for this email account and am waiting a response. However I can receive email OK with the IMAP setttings so I have to believe that this is OK. The account works using their webmail system so I think it has to be one of my settings however I've tried all the combinations without sucesss. TKX

Since moving to Ubuntu 20.04 and Thunderbird 68.7.0 I am encountering a problem where the selected email loses focus.

The problem is thus:

  • I select an email within a list of emails displayed (inbox etc.).
  • It briefly changes colour showing it has been inspected.
  • Within a second or so it changes to grey showing that it is no longer selected.
  • If I then reselect the email in question, it now remains selected.

Whilst this is not the end of the world it is incredibly irritating when going through emails. Selecting an email to take an action upon (e.g. to delete it via the delete key) only to find it deselected and the action not implemented.

Firefox Monitor notified me of a data breach of an account that was deleted automatically due to inactivity by LiveJournal.com eight years ago. How come my e-mail still got in the data breach that supposedly happened three years ago in 2017 and has just been discovered? It says the breach included e-mails and passwords. I don't even remember what password I used back then and the account is deleted, so I can't log in anymore. Is there anything I should be concerned about? How is this even possible in the first place?
