Email folders not sychronising correctly

Hi I've just moved over to Thunderbird from Outlook for my yahoo mail using the IMAP mail server settings. However, I'm having a problem where the email folders are not staying synchronised correctly, even though all of the account sychronisation settings are turned on (as they were by default).

The problem occurred when I use another device such as my phone or web mail to move emails to another folder. For example, I receive an email which I see appear into my inbox on Thunderbird. I then use my phone to move that email to a folder called "Work related". I then go back to Thunderbird and I can see that the email has now correctly appeared in the "Work related" folder but it's also still showing in the inbox. I.e. I have 2 copied of it, one in the inbox and another in the "Work related" folder according to Thunderbird! I check this via webmail which confirms that the email has been moved corrrectly, so Thunderbird shouldn't be showing it in the inbox.

I've tried clicking "Get Messages" to get it to update but it does nothing. I've tried clicking to other folders and back again, but it doesn't change or update. The only methods that I found which work are to either close Thunderbird and reopen it (it this case the email shows up initially in the inbox but quickly disappear as Thunderbird refreshes), or to right-click on the inbox, go to properties and "repair" the folder (a pain because it takes a while on the larger folders).

Same thing happens moving things between other folders if I do it on another device. I have to keep restarting Thunderbird to get it to show correctly! Using Outlook it was always handled correctly, but I want to move over to an open source solution.

Thanks in advance, Steve

If I shutdown my computer while Firefox is open, it will start up automatically with all of my previous tabs open next time I turn on my computer. It does this faster than my VPN can start up, thus exposing my true IP to what ever sites I had open when I turned off my computer. Is there any way to make it so that Firefox doesn't do this?

Hi, I've got a new phone, Samsung Note 10. Migrating from a Note 8. Firefox beta is working as expected but I also downloaded the normal Firefox app. I logged in with one of my other email addresses not the one I normally use and synch on. I find now that the app won't forget the other email. I went on line from a pc and deleted the new account but the app still is trying to connect with the "other" e-mail address. Tried deleting app and reinstling but still the same issue. I guess the profile ifor the email address is held separately on the phone but I can't find it to delete it. Milvus

its obvious that the last version of FF has setting issues. Something new in the config settings is preventing css mods from taking place. I know about the toolkit css item etc.... but there is something else that is not right. Maybe you should check with Apple before you release updates. Please find out what is is..you might have to talk to Apple and try different things on a Mac ....to confirm that css works.. I am running the latest.. I think its definitely a FF thing because it worked before and other fonts controlled by Mac are not having the problems that the bookmarks toolbar is having regarding css to enlarge the microscopic font that in on a Mac toolbar. If you cant find anything then I guess its time to go to Brave.

I won't check a box that opts me into observational and INTERVENTIONAL studies that I won't even be aware that I'm in since I don't look every 5 minutes at the settings and may do things like the evil sort of one fb ? did that changed your emotions.

That's a great example of why I moved to Firefox from Chrome and am wary of Facebook.

I'd be more than happy to check a box that says: "Please offer me any/all studies I may be eligible for including add'l questions to see if I'm eligible, with a reasonable stab at assent (not even informed consent). And of course whether data is anonymous (truly, as in after the study even if you wanted to you couldn't figure out which person was which), or not. Not anonymous may be fine....depending on the study. My very best, really, you're great....AND I'd be happy to discuss, advise (see below)...my 'toolbox' isn't simply biomedical. Darren


(Just me being pedantic now ignore this as you wish: And you say "study" ... I'm a researcher (sometimes)...IRB, grants, peer review, publications. Research is the "creation of generalizable knowledge." Is that what you're doing? I suspect you're doing more "quality improvement" where you figure out what works better for you...and SOMETIMES that is generalizeable knowledge (i.e., certain colors make people happy in every browser not Firefox specific), but do you publish it as peer reviewed research? Now, it's TOTALLY FINE if you don't and it's QI....but would specify that and not call it studies...call it...evaluating improvements or whatever. The use of the word 'study' and 'research' drive me nuts since when we talk to people about actual 'studies' and 'research' they conflate that with marketing evaluations of what makes us by more or which candidate we're interested in or how to sell things to us.)

I'm wondering how to configure a default zoom level for all users.

I want

about:preferences -> Default zoom

to have a default value of 133% instead of 100%.

So far I'm using the files

firefox/distribution/distribution.ini

and

firefox/browser/defaults/preferences/all-XXX.js

for configuration, but I don't know which keyword to use. I compared the content-prefs.sqlite file between to test profiles, one having 100% default zoom, the other having 133% default zoom.

The database says there is a setting "browser.content.full-zoom", but I can't configure this with the *.ini or *.js file, or can I?


I also read this:

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Preferences/A_brief_guide_to_Mozilla_preferences

but it didn't help.
