Before anyone mistakes this problem as a "default FROM" issue, it's not. Please read

I have contacts with multiple eMail addresses. No matter how I order those addresses in the contact's Addressbook record, when I create an outgoing eMail and start to type in an address for any of those contacts, once I enter enough letters to have TBird narrow the display down to that one contact, the eMail addresses are presented to me in alphabetical order even if I have manually ordered those eMail addresses in that contact's record non-alphabetically. Even if I "star" the first address (to make it the primary), the eMail choices in the outgoing eMail are always displayed alphabetically.

As an example:

John Smith's contact record shows three eMail addresses: ccc@gmail.com bbb@yahoo.com aaa@mac.com

When I create an outgoing eMail to John Smith (let's say he's the only "john") and either type "john" or "ccc", the suggested eMail addresses always appear as: aaa@mac.com bbb@yahoo.com ccc@gmail.com ...with the first address highlighted even if John's primary address is "ccc@gmail.com".

Suggestions welcomed. Thanks.

I am a retired person trying to use Firefox on a Linux os computer i OWN. To day, Firefox has become unstable. I see in my settles that an "enterprise" now controls my copy of firefox.

How can I eliminate this obstruction?

Most discussion of this problem discusses Windows os and is useless to me.

My os is LinuxMint 19 (Tara)

Please advise!

SINCE THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN WHEN I SIGN INTO MY LIVE.COM EMAIL WHEN I USE EDGE, MICROSOFT SAYS THAT THIS IS A FIREFOX PROBLEM. MAYBE!

AFTER I ENTER MY LOGIN PASSWORD TO GET INTO MY LIVE.COM EMAIL, I AM RE-DIRECTED TO A WINDOW THAT ASKS IF I WANT TO STAY SIGNED IN (KEEP ME SIGNED IN). THE 2 CHOICES AVAILABLE ARE "NO" AND "DON'T SHOW THIS WINDOW AGAIN". NEITHER OF THESE 2 BUTTONS WORK AS I KEEP GETTING THEM EVERY TIME I LOG INTO MY EMAIL.
ONE THING I HAVE NOTED IS THAT IF I GO BACK 1 PAGE FROM THE "KMSI" PAGE, THIS OFTEN TAKES ME TO MY LIVE.COM EMAIL INBOX. THIS MAKES ME THINK THAT I AM BEING RE-DIRECTED TO THE "KMSI" PAGE! AS STATED EARLIER MS SAYS THIS IS A FIREFOX PROBLEM BECAUSE WHEN I LOG IN USING EDGE, THE BUTTONS WORK AND THE "KMSI" WINDOW DOESN'T RE-APPEAR!

THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON/OFF SINCE 11/18 AND HAVE BEEN TRYING TO GET MICROSOFT TO FIX THE PROBLEM SINCE THEN. ANY HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED! SINCERELY, D

Copy or Move from a "Blocked" folder to Inbox fails with no error message. See attachments. My question is based on the fact that no message from "Sarah" appears in the Inbox when I either copy or move that person's email to the Inbox. The "Blocked" folder contains messages from unknown senders using a filter/rule (don't remember what they are called in TB) The attachments show that "Sarah" is in the Address book.

TIA for you help. SweetTasha.

I use the Keepass2Android password manager on my Samsung S9+ smartphone. For some time now (6 months perhaps) the pop up window from Keepass2Android for filling in usernames and password fails to appear. Sometimes it appears briefly and then disappears. I have contacted the Keepass2Android developers and they say it is a problem with recent versions of Firefox for Android. Keepass2Android does work OK with other Android browsers (like Chrome, Edge, & Samsung internet browsers).

Are there any suggestions or solutions?

I'm using the Telstra App( Australian Phone company) to buy more pre-paid credit and when i click pay PayPal it gives me a pop up box that says "Select "window" in your toolbar to find log in to your PayPal account" and it opens FF but it just sits on my home page and doesn't open PayPal, it use to open the PayPal app, but i figured Telstra changed something in their app that now forces it to open my default browser. so i figured I'd try here and see if this message make any sense to anyone, I have google it but no results point to where to find the toolbar it talks about.

I have a Lenovo Yoga Tab 2 running Android 5.1 but Chrome no longer provides updates. If Firefox will continue to service 5.1 I would like to switch but I am not happy to disable Chrome and I am not sure whether force stop is the best approach. At present I have both installed. Would I see differences in the way that other apps perform if I make a switch ?

Hello folks,

I'm looking to upgrade my FF browser as much as possible, but I need to run Mac OS X 10.9.5 (for legacy software) on my older iMac.

Currently running "78.15.0esr (64-bit)" and the "About" window says "Firefox is up to date" and "You are currently running on the esr update channel" (Not sure what that means)

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

I have been using Thunderbird email for numerous years.

At the end of June (2021) I started a summer-long vacation in another state, and prepared a laptop (Win 10) computer for the trip (with Thunderbird installed, of course.

Around July 5th I tried to peruse my email using Thunderbird on the laptop and was unsuccessful.... Zoho kept rejecting my email account password(s).... "login to server imap.zoho.com with username xxxx@xxxxx.com failed" (see attached)

I had the same issue with my account at gmail.com (Google mail) using Thunderbird. I have no other email accounts.

I assumed I had made some sort of mistake in the Thunderbird account settings on the laptop, but I had no way to compare the settings to my home computer (nobody there at my home and I was away on an extended trip)

Zoho was unable to assist me with Thunderbird. I assumed I did something wrong when I configured Thunderbird on the laptop and tried numerous parameter alterations without success.

I am able to access my email accounts at Zoho when I go to zoho.com directly, but compared to Thunderbird their interface is unwieldy and doesn't allow much screen space for email content (and, of course, I'm not able to save read emails to my Thunderbird local accounts).

I just returned from my extended trip and find that I now have the same issues on my home desktop computer, which was working fine when I left the last week of June. It (Thunderbird on my home desktop computer) also, rejects logins to my email accounts at Zoho and at Googlemail. Strangely, I can read new emails in the Thunderbird email accounts, but I am unable to reply to them or forward them.

The only logical explanation I can come up with is that an automatic update caused these issues. In fact, my home computer has a Thunderbird icon on the desktop that I'm not certain was there before (I keep most of my important program icons in program category folders on my desktop and in my quick-access bar at the bottom of my Win 10 desktop screen... so if an icon shows up on my desktop, I assume it is because of a product update). I am currently at Thunderbird 78.14.0 (64-bit).

I am trying to think of ways I can verify that an automatic update caused the issue.

I am able to log in to my email accounts by directly using zoho.com or google.com, but much prefer Thunderbird. I am hoping for suggestions as to why neither of my Thunderbird copies (desktop and laptop) are able to log in to receive email.

Thoughts and suggestions????

As many here have said, the latest Firefox update has reversed many web pages and menus from white-with-black text to black-with-white text. I can't believe that Mozilla really meant to do this. This is very annoying. It would be one thing to offer it as an option, but to just jam it to us without warning is plain obnoxious. I did do the about:config color-scheme override but that only fixed my Firefox search page. Everything else is still black. Thanks a lot.
