I've been having a lot of trouble with TB not downloading emails on startup or at the interval I set which is usually 10 minutes. This has been going on for months. I made sure all the check server related settings were ticked and tried all kinds of suggestions including clean installs and investigating my antivirus etc and other things but nothing fixed it. Frustrating.

Then I noticed that when I launched TB that it was highlighting the trash at launch and thought that was odd. So I chose different folders and always back to trash on launch. So I looked up that. I read that if you see that you should go to the profile folder and delete session.json and this should fix it so whatever was last selected will be selected at next launch. And yes, it did fix that.

But, it not only fixed that, but now message are downloaded at startup and at whatever interval I select. It fixed my other issue as well. Just wanted to mention this cause I don't see delete session.json as a fix for this message issue and it was the only thing that worked for me.

Since somewhere last autumn, when I download any file from any website, the browser vanishes without any warning on the moment I navigate to the destination folder.

I maintain 2 websites (Joomla), and last week both required uploading a few files in Phoca Download to make them available to members. Now also on this upload the browser was completely gone when I navigated to the folder where I kept the fles.

I use Firefox since about 1995. I looked in about:Crash (first time ever), there were to reports, both unsubmitted: 69990c58-1a5c-40a3-9141-666607416103 6/22/2020, 1:23 AM e6f0688e-73e4-4c19-8e0a-01ec3c28e996 2/22/2019, 4:09 PM I have submitted them both now.
