My Inbox has 687 emails, but I can only see the content of the three latest emails. Emails older than that do not display. The preview pane is blank for those, and when double clicking on an email the message view is also blank. Emails in other folders than the Inbox are displayed fine, also older emails. I have Thunderbird 78.4.3 (32 bit). I have no active extensions. I have tried the launch with shift pressed method to Reset toolbars and controls, but that didn't help. Is there a tool that re-indexes emails?

I'm trying to import contacts from Windows Live Mail. When I use the .csv method it imports everything but only shows a human silhouette on each line with NO text. When I try the .vcf method, WLM won't let me export to anything but a folder, and the import process doesn't recognize the folder as a whole and will only import one address at a time if I open the folder. How do I do this???

Coming over from Lastpass, all csv imports to Lockwise went fine, but there are other useful fields in the old PW manager that can't be added to Lockwise. Things like PIN numbers and security answers were nicely stored in an "Extras" field in Lastpass. The Mozilla "give feedback" page for Mozilla is currently disabled.

I'm having to conserve disc space. Photos take up a lot of space. I would like to delete photos from my messages (both sent and received), but not the text.

If the photo is an attachment I see there is a little box to the right of it offering 'Detach' or 'Delete'.

If I highlight the photo name and choose 'Delete' the photo is deleted from the email leaving the text, but still appears at the bottom crossed out with 0 bytes. What I want

If I choose 'Detach' I am offered a save screen, and I can save the photo. A warning tells me that the photo will be saved and then deleted from the email. Except it isn't - it is saved but still appears at the bottom NOT crossed out and with its original bytes, and can be opened. Not what I want, and a presumably a bug

If the photo is in line with the text of the email (as a great many of mine are) there appears to be no way of deleting it (or converting it to an attachment, when I could used the method above). How can I do it?

Thanks

I recently upgraded from 68 to 78 versions of TB. Now my address book is hosed!! (Not happy)

I read the various 'solutions' for this error code/implementation and STILL cannot get my addresses to display correctly. (See image attached)

Yes, I tried renaming the abook/history files from .bak to .mab with no luck (after shutting down TB and restarting it). Still, no luck.

I saw a 'solution' where we are able to re-install ver. 68, but cannot find a link taking me to the download for that level. Only release notes..?

I've been using this tool for YEARS without any flaws. Now this! Not happy.

Hopefully someone can direct me to a solution that works. Very frustrating...

Following Windows 10 crash, I restored system using a backup image from August 8, 2020. Thunderbird version on the old image 68.12.1. When restarting the system Thunderbird informed that email and profile data were no longer compatible with the older version and to create a new profile. I prefer to not lose my email, account, and address data that resides on a separate HD and unaffected by the WIN 10 sys crash. Can I install the latest Tbird version (78.7.1), which I believe I was running at the time of the crash, and connect it to my saved data? How do I accomplish this?

Thank you,

Terry

Automatically received the latest major firefox update on my Samsung galaxy tab s3. I don't know what Mozilla did to this release but I can't find any functions to do basic browser controls like going back to the previous page, going to the next page, or refreshing a page. I really love firefox but it's kind of unusable without these controls. I'm going to have to use chrome which I'd prefer not to do until this is fixed. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi - I signed out of a different Firefox account and can't get back in, as the password I have isn't correct. If I change my password, I may lose my bookmarks, etc. I exported the bookmarks to html and also backed them up (json). If I change my password, will I be able to restore the bookmarks using one of those backups? I backed up "all bookmarks." Does that include the bookmarks toolbar and mobile bookmarks as well as the bookmarks menu and other bookmarks? Thank you in advance!

After an extraordinary amount of testing, I can conclude that Thunderbird is placing linebreaks inappropriately in emails sent from Thunderbird.

In other forum posts, I saw these described as "soft" line breaks that email clients could ignore, but in my testing, Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook/Office 365 all display these false line breaks (in both webmail and mobile apps). In fact, the only email clients that did not display these false line breaks were Outlook 2016 (Windows 10) and Thunderbird (Windows/macOS).

The issue is that Thunderbird is inserting these line breaks where the line changes in the view of the composer. This is an arbitrary line that really serves no obvious purpose, given the thousands of possible variations in screen sizes on mobile or desktop?

Toggling between sending in HTML or plain text seems to not have an impact in resolving this issue, and neither does switching between "Paragraph" or "Body Text" modes.

Example images are attached of how this looks.

Any hope for a resolution on this issue? (via Extension or correction by the developers?)

Firefox Support: I am 80-years old, and use a land line. 360 894-6326. I do not have a cell phone. I have been using Firefox, and Aol for a good number of years. I do not use most bells and whistles or ‘Social Media’ accounts, and I cannot click a picture of a code from the screen. Recently, I purchased a new Laptop, which required using a Microsoft ‘Outlook Account’ the previous account Walter6326@Outlook.com ‘Password’ was not recognized, I tried to change it many times filling out the ‘form’ provided, which did not request simple information which could identify me, instead the ‘team’ said they would get back in 24-hours. They did, and indicated I didn’t provide enough information to identify me.

After a number of attempts in which ended up now creating: Butch6326@Outlook.com, I was able to get the other Laptop to work, except in using one then the other some of my destinations do not recognize the last password, and I have to have a code or some such sent to Aol.com to verify that I am me. I created yet another account with Webmail.fairpoint.net ‘Phillwa2@fairpoint.net’, however 'fix it' codes sent to that account do not get there. I have synced both computers with Firefox, and it appears that it is working. In this day and age it seems impossible to actually talk to a person in which such problems could be resolved in short order. I would appreciate some direction.
