The websites that I use Facebook to login with won't let me login, I've tried closing and reopening the browser, refreshing the page, and deleting and signing back into the account, but nothing works. The browser Windows 7 desktop and the websites in question are Dailymotion, Viki Rakuten and We TV. I wonder if it was because I was using a Windows 7 machine, but other login sources like Google seem to work fine.

Dailymotion: https://www.dailymotion.com/ca Viki: https://www.viki.com/ We TV: https://wetv.vip/en

I reverted to v68 after the new downloads took away my ability to use ABP and some other necessary apps.

The first thing I did was turn off auto update.

Last night it updated to newest FF. I went about restoring my tablet and cannot find the ABP download ANYWHERE. Not in Play Store and not on any ABP.org website, either.

Not looking for the ABP browser which is in abundance.

How did this happen and how do I fix it?

Note: Setting still says FF is on auto-update.

Thank you.

Many sites have videos playing when I open the page. If I just ignore the video and scroll down without explicitly stopping the video, I get a popup window playing the video. Apparently the popup blocker doesn't consider this to be a popup. Is there any way to kill this annoying behavior?

I can't find a way to ask the Thunderbird community a question. This is my question.

I am running tbird 78.5.1 on my PC. There is an option to move mail. One of the options under that is to look at favorites. I want to learn how to put folders into that favorites list.

I know there is also an option for recent folders. That one autoconfigures and I know how to use it.

But I would like to designate favorites as well. Can someone please tell me how to do that?

I am using a version of Thunderbird that is about 15 years old and always have to find an old version when I buy a new computer. What is missing on the newer versions, is a way to delete emails from the main page, without opening them. There used to be a delete button above the emails, and one could click the first email to darken but not open it, and then choose delete at the top. I am a contester, so get about 300 - 400 advertising emails a day, so like to just keep my finger on delete, and click it as each new letter moves up to the top when the first one is deleted. I can then scan the subject line, which is almost always a solicitation, and then keep clicking delete, delete, delete, unless it is a "real" email, which I then open and read, before deciding whether to delete it, respond to it, or save it permanently. I don't see anything in the options above the list of new emails that allows me to delete anymore (since it was dropped about 15 years ago), but maybe there is a keyboard key that would act in that manner for me? But using such an old version has become far too frustrating now, since it hasn't been supported for at least a decade. There are irritations such as pictures not able to load, and error boxes that have to be x'ed out repeatedly, before I can see the contents of the emails I actually open. I really would like to stick with Thunderbird if possible, so hope that there is an answer to my problem. Thank you.

Every time I type this into my windows run dialog, %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles, so I can search for it, my computer totally shuts down!! Firefox had a meltdown of some kind a week ago where every time my pointer touched the open window it locked everything up totally. I finally had it looked at and the person had to uninstall firefox and reinstall it. I was trying to recover my old tabs from before that but now it keeps doing this. Any help?

Recently, I had to change my username at my bank's website because somebody was trying a brute force attack on my password. Now, the site still shows my old username, although I've gone to my Saved Logons in Preference and removed all logons for that site except for the correct one. I have to delete the old username from the typing box every time I log in there, after which I can select the correct (and only) saved username/password.

Now, it TRANSFERS ME TO THE TAB I JUST OPENED and I have to "go back".

What changed with rel 87.0? How can I go back to "staying on my tab" I am on? I don't see any "options".

April 8th, 2021

Dear FireFox,

I don't know where else to send this too as your contact us form/page is so complicated and I can't find an email address. You have a type on your page "https://monitor.firefox.com/remove-my-data", under "How do we remove it?". The paragraph below states "... It’s not available yet, but blick below if you are interested in finding out more." I believe "blick" should have been "click".

Thank you,

Crypt Lord

Also, my subject only needs to be four characters as I get this error message for my title "Ensure this value has at least 5 characters (it has 4)."

As a new Thunderbird user (and old outlook user), I tried to tidy my gmail folders up.

Basically I dragged my important gmail folders to the default Inbox above the italic (Gmail). All worked fine until the next time I opened Thunderbird when I found the the folders that I had moved were gone/

I have looked in the imap folder on my C drive and they are not there either. To add to this they are no longer in Gmail. Seems that the are lost forever? 

However if I do a search within Thunderbird, the folder name appears on the left hand side with an email count that seems to reflect what's in the folder.

There are some important emails for me and I would like to recover them.

Is this possible and how ?

Appreciate any help

Received the Beta update 88 on 04/06/2021. Since them when I attempt to send an email with earthlink account I no longer get the popup box to enter my password. The sending email just stays on the screen and email does not get sent.

I worked with earthling for an hour and they say all of the settings are correct for their service and could not find a problem.

I still get the password popup box for hotmail account. I attached picture from the thunderbird trouble shooting print out showing the account info and screen shots for the earthlink and hotmail screens with sending an email. Earthlink is my main account, Not sure what to do now.
