I have TB 91. TB has been operating flawlessly for years. It suddenly stopped downloading. It shows the downloading bar at the bottom of TB, but nothing downloads. I didn't change anything before it stopped. I can send emails just fine. I tried disabling all my Norton security and firewall settings. No luck. Re-starting both PC and TB. No luck. I can access my emails directly through an internet sign in to my provider, ionos.com. I tried Outlook (yuck) and it downloaded just fine, so my provider is working OK. I have 5 email accounts with ionos, and it won't download any of them. TB won't download on my PC or my laptop, so it seems that it's not a problem on my computer(s). Any ideas? I can't find quite the same issue on any other recent posts.

I just updated to 95.0. I use default Firefox home page with the Search bar. The background turned to black with this update. The background has also turned to black for some of my bookmarks or sites I go to. Settings, Language and Appearance, Colors, Text is Black and Background is White. I have never changed that. How do I get the background back to White?

Since I moved my profile to a new computer I have had two recurring issues that appear to be related.

Issue 1: I use the Tree Style Tabs extension. After about 30 minutes the sidebar hides itself and the Tree Style Tabs item disappears from the View > Sidebar menu. I have to restart Firefox to re-enable the Tree Style Tabs via the menu.

Issue 2: I have 'Open previous session and tabs' enabled in Preferences, and usually this feature works well. However, once the previous issue occurs (my Tree Style Tabs disappears) and I restart Firefox, it always reverts to the same tabs that I had open on the date of migration several weeks ago.

I am on MacOs 12.0.1 and FireFox and extensions are all up-to-date

Can anyone offer any suggestions as to why these might be occurring?

I receive numerous emails from one individual. He always sends from the same address (webmaster@fvwwc.org). But on the message list window, he shows up with no less than 4 different "Correspondent" names. In the message window, the From: line gives whatever correspondent name has been given and right beside that <webmaster@fvwwc.org>. So if I sort my received messages by correspondent to find something he sent, his emails end up in 4 different positions on the list. Now, he is not changing how he sends his email. How do I get Thunderbird to assign him just ONE correspondent name? Where is this translation table hidden? If it matters, his correspondent names are: FVWW Webmaster, FVWWC Webmaster, Webmaster@FVWWC, and webmaster@fvwwc.org (the only correct one).

I have two computers. On one I have no issues with Firefox. The other computer I have a major problem with "Secure Connection Failed" - I cannot open sites like CNN, Yahoo Mail, etc. As I have looked into this it seems this is a big Firefox issue. What advise can you provide to make this nightmare go away. I really like Firefox and I don't want to give it up. I have tried the "ABOUT:CONFIG" True/False solution and that did not work. PLEASE tell me there is a SIMPLE solution to this issue.

I am sure I'm not the only one that gets MANY emails with similar subjects like "order #23456789".

It would be nice if there would a feature which would allow the subject to be edited/annotated and/or an "annotation" column that one could fill in so the subject would than look like: "order #23456789" - printer paper for instance.

Thanks

Hello everyone,

I have very stupidly in the profile settings changed the email retention to delete emails older than 30 days from server thinking it will delete emails older than 30 days from when I changed the settings, I foolishly thought my current emails will stay where they are. My inbox and other folders are now empty. When I noticed what is happening I changed the settings back and restarted the program but it was too late. Is there anything that can be done about this? Would restoring a back up profile resolve this?The inbox or other folders have NOT been compressed.

I am working on Windows 10.

Thanks in advance for the help. Totally lost here.

I'm using 91.5.0 and when writing an email, an asterisk or dot, not clear which, is now added to the end of the 'To' box. The first time I noticed it, I actually posted the address into the box but now it's there in all circumstances. It doesn't appear to affect the working but what is it and why is it there ?

I cannot access my AOL email through Thunderbird. AOL sent me an emaill stating that they have changed their security. I understand that I have to have AOL generate a password for incoming and one for outgoing email. My question is this: if I do this and then want to access AOL on the web, do I still use my old password to sign in or do I use one of the generated passwords from AOL to use in Thunderbird? thank you

I am running TB 91.5.1 (just installed) on a new Mac Mini with the m1 chip. I've had it for about a week and today it started bringing my new mail in halfway down yesterday's mail. I updated to 5.1 from 5.0 thinking it would solve the problem. Could it have something to do with junk mail controls? How do I turn them off?

Also, the new messages are coming in in reverse time. I have it set for descending order.

Help! I love my new Mac, and I normally love TB, but it's diving me crazy.
