So, I received version 79.0.5 for Android. Without disrespecting all the fine folks and hard work that went into it, I have to say "Its a mess, not remotely ready for release".

I appreciate the extra tracking protection.

Other "features", not so much.

Is it faster? I have a slow, old device, so one would think an improvement in speed would be noticeable. It's not.

It has new features. But one cannot control them. For example 1. The home screen/page has changed. Firefox has populated it with some things I previously pinned, and added some other things of it's choosing. Like Microsoft does. OK, but where are the previous things that I carefully pushed onto that home screen/page? The last time Firefox changed things I had to adapt to get my home screen/page setup how I like, now it's done it again. It *IS* like Microsoft, trashing my settings whenever they choose. 2. We have Collections. Good idea. But. They cannot be re-ordered. And items inside the collection cannot be re-ordered. The feature is just not ready for release. 3. Log press on a link produces a popup menu that does a weird floppity flop before the stabilizing. 4. Two finger zoom on a page is a disaster. Hard to control, suddenly reverts to the previous state. Again, simply not ready for release. 5. Help has no About. How does one find the version? Answer: from the home screen/page, press the three dot menu icon, press Help (getting one to a Firefox for Android Support page), now press the three dot menu again, press Settings, scroll wa-a-ay down to the bottom, press About Firefox. In testing this "feature" I found that the Settings menu is available on any page that is open EXCEPT the home page/screen. Have I mentioned that it's not ready for release? It's not ready for release.

Sorry to be the bearer of the bad news.

AVG migrates my mozilla thunderbird from version 60.5.3 to 78.4.3 and I do not know how to avoid that. Version 60.5.3 is not compatible to 78.4.3 and I would have to start my thunderbird from new and would loose all my data (adresses, emails etc.). So I install version 60.5.3 from my downloads and all works fine again till AVG does it again. So either how can I tell AVG to leave my thunderbird in peace or how kann I migrate my data from 60.5.3 to 78.4.3 wich would of course be the better solution.

Dzień dobry, bardo proszę o udzielenie informacji czy znany jest Państwu problem eksportu sesji treningowej do pliku .tcx? Podczas eksportu sesji treningowej za pomocą przeglądarki Firefox v. 84.0.2 pliki .tcx automatycznie pobierają się do pliku .xml. W przypadku pobierania plików .tcx za pomocą przeglądarki Chrome v. 87.0.4280.141 problem nie występuje, również w przypadku pliku zipowanego pobierane dane są z rozszerzeniem .tcx w dwóch przeglądarkach.

Moving Thunderbird Data to a New Computer fails

I am trying to move my Thunderbird from an old Dell computer(2012; running Windows 10) to a new Dell computer(2020; running Windows 10) using the procedures described at … (read more)

I am trying to move my Thunderbird from an old Dell computer(2012; running Windows 10) to a new Dell computer(2020; running Windows 10) using the procedures described at this link, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/moving-thunderbird-data-to-a-new-computer, but ultimately fails. After I complete all the steps, I open Thunderbird (Work Offline mode) on the new PC and I can see all my accounts with all the emails correctly. I then close Thunderbird and then reopen it again (Work Offline mode) and now all my emails are gone. But the accounts still show. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Notes: I have at least 12 different email accounts with about 40GB of data. Both computers have access to each other via my router's LAN. I first copy the 40GB of Thunderbird data from the old PC to a temporary directory on the new PC. I then follow the steps in replacing the appropriate Thunderbird directories on the new PC as the instructions indicate. Do the path directories on both computers have to be identical up from the 'Roaming' directory?

I just downloaded Thunderbird last night. I have two issues.

I followed the instructions to create a Global inbox in order to keep all of my inboxes one one page. When I get to the "Inbox for different account " in the advanced settings there is no option for this.

Also I cannot find any directions to migrated my current inboxes or folders to Thunderbird? The old program I am trying to get away from is Incredimail.

Sorry If I have not included everything you need. Please let me know if I can supply any needed information. Thanks, Rick

I just installed the esr version of Firefox. I did not think that I would lose all my bookmarks, add-on, etc. Is there a way to revert back to the standard version with all my old data? Or in looking at the profiles I see a default profile, a default-esr profile, and a default-release profile. This latter profile seems to have my old data when I open the folders and look around. However, when I try to open that profile in new window it says something about opening an old version and losing data and creating a new profile. When I do that, I still get a fresh browser with none of my data.
