forwarding html-formatted email turns into plaintext Win8.1 TB78.10.1

when forwarding an html-formatted msg, i usually prefer to convert to Plain so i have the Send Options set to 'send as plaintext when possible' and, on rare occasions when i want it to go in HTML i use Shift-(click on ForwardButton) to override the plaintext conversion. lately this has resulted in a message that displays as obviously html, as desired, but when i hit Send and then go look in Sent folder to see result, it is in plaintext and recipient reports that it came out Plaintext. further, sometimes pursuant to no observable provocation, when i hit Send i get error message: <Sending of the message failed. Unable to open the temporary file C:\Users\SIDCOW~1\AppData\Local\Temp\nsmail.tmp. Check your 'Temporary Directory' setting.>

however, sometimes, and sometimes not, when i click Send again, the message sends without further backtalk, but again arrives in Plaintext. the SIDCOW reference in the filename presumably refers to a folder i have unwittingly established in Users when i gave myself the fanciful name SidCowznofski at the time i originally set up this computer. i have searched using File Explorer and cannot find a file in Users which contains the text string SIDCOWZNOFSKI1 or SidCowznofski1 in its name. (many subfolders labeled with a version of SidCowznofski, but none having the <1> after S...nofski) maybe i am not using the Search function correctly? i am new to this. oddly, when i right-click my account name at top of (folder pane?) then settings>composition & addressing and check 'compose messages in html format', then try to forward an html message in html format by Shift-clicking Forward, the draft forwarded message immediately displays in Plaintext. it doesn't seem to make any difference whether i have the addressee in my address book set to <prefers to receive messages in html format> or <prefers to receive messages in plaintext format>. i am accustomed to getting the alert when sending html to the latter, which asks me to choose the format for this particular message. even temporarily changing the addressee's setting in the address book, to html, does not seem to ameliorate this problem. i can click the Menu icon at upper right of display, Options>Composition>forward messages as attachment, and then forwarding the html message apparently yields the attached msg in html at the recipient end, but i don't really want to forward ALL my messages as attachments by default, and it's kind of fiddly to go back and forth into the menu>options>composition thing every time i want to just forward the occasional msg in its original html format. is there any way around this? i doubt if it matters but i just noticed when looking up the TB version in my files that it's the 32-bit and i think this machine is 64. not sure how that happened. TIA for taking the time to read this.

Hey folks,

Hope everyone is doing well.

The title pretty much sums it up. When I right click on a link to select "open link in new tab" (or other selection), the menu seems to open just beneath the cursor causing an instantaneous selection (usually opens a new tab). I've tried using the browser without any extensions and the problem keeps occurring (just happened now when I tried to select the correct spelling for occurring).

This only seems to happen with Firefox.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

MacOS Catalina 10.15.7 Firefox 88.0.1 (64-bit)

All recent Firefox versions have killer bugs.

A new one was actually trying to login here. The error message said 'Cookies must be enabled' and I couldn't get further. Cookies *were* enabled! I shut down Firefox, and re-opened, and all was then OK.

. Web pages with scripts are often completely blank. . Pop-ups are often blank. If not they often don't work, like (critically) Ebay login. . View source (CMD U) works for new pages. However doesn't update if the source page changes.

 I do use <CMD U> from the changed front page.

A silly one is that the keypress to 'Copy Link' was deviously 'A', but not shown. It has now changed to 'L' and still not shown. Why? I very much prefer Firefox, and all the many shortcuts are memorised (well bar 'L' (8-)# )

However I so often now have to use Safari or Chrome to get around the bugs. This is a pain as the interfaces are different, and specifically 'View Source' never has a shortcut key. They also have their own bugs!

I thought it was broken in all of android-chromebook, but then I noticed I can long-press to collapse groups in Aggregator. but both in firefox itself and the embedded firefox viewer Aggregator uses, long-press and right-click do nooothing... except on the url bar. :/ this means I can't get contextmenus on links or images. sometimes the punchline to a comic is in that contextmenu.

also I can't install the linux version of firefox on this chromebook, because it's cheap junk with a ridiculously small hard drive, so I'm stuck with just android apps (and only a few of them) until I can get a new one.

I also have the touchpad-scroll-selects-text-instead bug, but I got around that by buying a mouse; the scroll *wheel* works.

I wanted to check a Hertz reservation. I typed Hertz into the Firefox bar at the top and selected the first entry that had the Hertz logo followed by https:\\www.Hertz.com. I clicked that entry and only a white page came up. I tried reloading and nothing happened. Eventually, I opened a new window and again typed Hertz in the bar. This time i scrolled way down and found a google symbol next to the word Hertz. I clicked that and it worked. How can I automatically search with Google so that I don't have trouble accessing sites?

I asked a previous question about why I recently have not been able to send emails to multiple recipients. When I hit "send," my screen blinks but nothing is sent. Sharif responded with, "Try to disable all extensions and restart, it may resolve the issue." I don't know how to disable all extensions.

If I uninstalled Thunderbird and reinstalled it, would I lose my data?

Running Firefox 82.0.3 on MacOS 11.0.1 (Big Sur) -

If I go to full screen mode with Firefox, and then let my cursor get to close to the top of the window, it activates the dop-down of the menu bar. That's supposed to happen. But the bar is blank (the menu bar items appear above it), and hides tabs. And sliding my cursor away, the bar does not go away. Stuck. And can't resize Facebook to regular view to get rid of it. Need to close it and start over.

Thoughts?

Using Thunderbird on iOS MacBook, seeking to "move older saved searches into new subfolder"

Moving saved search folders in Thunderbird -- when you create a new saved search, you are given option of where to save the "search" -- but if you have created a bunch of them and do not want to delete them, can you move them to another sub-folder? For example, under INBOX, I have many saved search folders. I would like to create a folder INBOX/OLD SEARCHES... and be able to move a number of old search folders that I do not want to delete into that subfolder. I was able to create such a subfolder and to drag one old search folder into it, but cannot drag any other saved searches into that subfolder.

Any suggestions?
