I am using TB 78.7.1 (64-bit) on Windows 10 to upload messages from a local folder to a Gmail folder via IMAP. I copy-drag 700+ messages, but only a dozen or so get copied each time before the process aborts. A windows pops up saying "Thunderbird: Connection to server imap.gmail.com timed out". Before the abortion, the TB status line will sometimes say "User.Name@gmail.com: Sending login information..."

It will take forever to copy messages this way, and some messages don't seem to make it to the destination.

I enabled TB logging using the environment variable settings at: https://www.mailenable.com/kb/content/article.asp?ID=ME020591

Since I am using Cygwin's bash, I do the following:

   NSPR_LOG_MODULES=IMAP:4 \
   NSPR_LOG_FILE="$(cygpath -am ~/tmp/TBirdLog)" \
   cygstart thunderbird

This creates a file ~/tmp/TBirdLog.moz_log, whose final lines are ("FamBig" is the name of both the local and destination folder):

I have 100s of profiles that i need to move to a new computer but the names of the profiles are not .default (see attached screenshot named "Profile names on old computer") - they appear instead to be what i named the profiles.

And when I do move them to the Profile Directory, they aren't recognized in Profile Manager, I assume because they don't end in .default (see screenshot named "Profiles on New Computer" and screenshot "New computer's Profile Manager").

But on my old Macbook, they are recognized just fine. What am I missing or doing wrong?

Thank you

Users have been complaining about update nags for several years, and when a solution is found via about:config, Mozilla typically puts a spanner in the works and deletes the relevant config items like 'app.update.silent', 'app.update.doorhanger... etc.

I just want to remove the popup, not the ability to update. I'll update when I'm good and ready, and I don't need a popup each and every day nagging me to do so.

If Mozilla must ape Chrome, then aping Chrome's non-nagging update policy would be a good move.

Hi, The alternate search shortcuts are an excellent feature. Prior to a recent Firefox update, I was able to enter a search term and click once on one of the alternate search engine icons to perform the search with that engine.

Currently, I need to click the icon, e.g. Wikipedia, and confirm the request by pressing Enter or clicking the new item in the entry in the address bar drop-down, "Search with Wikipedia" (screenshot attached).

Is there an item in the about:config settings to revert this change and perform this search with a single click on the icon?

Thank you.

Hello, i was unable to access Google and YouTube due to "Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER", i could still access Gmail and drive but those two would not budge, i was still able to access them trough Chrome tough.

I did not have any anti-virus installed, did install malwarebytes for a moment, did a scan and uninstalled it, did not do anything. Turned off windows defender and nothing happened. I did have glasswire installed so uninstalled that as well and nothing happened.

After researching a bit more i found a solution where a guy imported the required certificate from another browser so i did the same. The certificate from both these websites was "DigiCert Global Root G1A" and it was present in Chrome but it was missing in Firefox(In case its relevant), and afterward i got access to both these websites however YouTube stopped working properly. The sidebar on the main site does not show any content( https://prnt.sc/109dtjv ), the comment section wont load and also when i click on my profile it wont load as well ( https://prnt.sc/109dux1 ). As far as i am aware those are the only issues i am facing, the videos load with no problem. Everything is working properly on Chrome so i will assume its not YouTube. I tried starting in incognito mode and safe mode, the issue is still there. So what im currently assuming is that maybe i should not have imported a certificate from another browser but i could be wrong so any help would be appreciated.


TL:DR: Imported certificate from another browser to fix "Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER", now YouTube wont load the sidebar, comment section and myprofile dropdown menu.

A recent Firefox update has totally disrupted our ability to print from browser windows. There used to be a "Print Preview" button that allowed us to set things up the way we wanted them. That's now missing. As a result, stuff that used to cost us for ten pages now costs us for twenty pages. Also, when we print double-sided, the second side prints upside down.

This strikes me and my wife as a horrible development, and we would like to go back to the old version ASAP!
