Hi Folks, It was a good run while it lasted. Yesterday Firefox, and maybe Thunderbird, automatically updated. I didn't realize until today(hadn't answered any emails.) that the address book was completely gone.

No sign of it in the deleted files. Windows 10 seems to be VERY fragile these days.

Any suggestions:

Thanks, Phil C

I recently upgraded my Thunderbird to the latest version (78) and in doing so, my personal address book is now empty. I have backups of the whole profile folder prior to the upgrade but there are no *.mab files anywhere in there. However there are a whole lot of *.sqlite files (abook.sqlite, abook-1.sqlite, abook-2.sqlite all the way up to abook-74.sqlite). I copied all these files into the current profile folder and opened Thunderbird but it didn't bring all those addresses in. I then tried the import option but it doesn't have an option for *.sqlite files. Can you please assist/advise how to import all my old address book contacts from the *.sqlite files into my current profile in Thunderbird v78.7.0?

Background

I have recently made a modification to my Firefox profile folder to allow the New Tab page to have a background image, but now I am noticing some strange behavior.

When first running Firefox it looks like this.

As you can see, for the sites that don't have a high-quality favicon available, Firefox uses a letter and the low-quality favicon. What I'm pointing out here is that the background for these is transparent.

However, when I open some sites and navigate around, I come back to see this.

There is now no visible letter and the background color for these icons have changed to white. I cannot seem to reproduce this, it just eventually happens after regular use.

This can be fixed by closing the browser and reopening it, but obviously, that's an inconvenience.

Question

Is there a way I can force the icon backgrounds to be transparent, or at least change the solid color to something more fitting to the theme? If possible, please let me know if there is a reason this is happening.

Note: I would rather not resort to setting a custom thumbnail for each of these because I like the way Firefox handles it by default. I'm just looking to fix the "ugly" white background that comes out of nowhere.

Thanks Todd for your reply. I have used Thunderbird in the past and now want to go back to it. I am not sure what version it is but it was installed 2 years ago. I have Windows 10. I want to use it for email. I cannot get into Thunderbird to use it. 1. Enter your password for "my email address on imap.gmail.com 2. Enter your password for "my outlook email address" on imap-mail.gmail.com 3. Enter your password for 'my name' on imap.telus.net

I think it is IMAP and outgoing server is SMTP.

One message that comes up is "Incoming server already exists"

I would be so grateful if someone could help me.

Da parecchi giorni il mio client di posta, con riferimento alla posta in uscita, è fuori uso. Ricevo diversi messaggi di errore, bloccanti, tra cui.

"Invio del messaggio non riuscito. Non è stato possibile inviare il messaggio perchè la connessione al server di posta in uscita (SMTP) smtp.tiscali.it è stata interrotta durante la trasmissione. Riprovare."

"Si è verificato un errore durante l'invio della posta: il server di posta ha iniziato la conversazione in modo non corretto: michael.mail.tiscali.it ESMTP - Too many connections."

"Si è verificato un errore durante l'invio della posta: il server di posta ha iniziato la conversazione in modo non corretto: santino.mail.tiscali.it ESMTP server not available from your IP xx.xx.xxx.xx"

Thunderbird è aggiornato all'ultima versione. I parametri di settaggio dell'account Tiscali per la posta in uscita sono correttamente impostati. Il provider è Vodafone. I messaggi di errore compaiono anche da PC nuovo, anch'esso correttamente settato Il servizio assistenza Tiscali su Whatsapp finora sta solo temporeggiando senza aver risolto nulla. Forse dipende dell'ultimo dei (frequenti, troppo frequenti) aggiornamenti di Thunderbird ? Oppure dal provider di connettvità Vodafone ? O da cos'altro ?

Hi all,

I am running into an odd issue and I am stumped on what to try next. As you can see in the attached images, I am running into a problem with select dropdowns. The first dropdown is from https://www.raspberrypi.org/products/raspberry-pi-400/ (Buy Now and click country) and the second is from this Mozilla support page. Long story short is dropdowns are messed up in my default profile. I have done the following to attempt to troubleshoot the issue -

1) Restart Firefox in Safe-Mode without addons 2) Refresh Firefox 3) Delete the Firefox user directory 4) Create a brand new profile and launch into the new profile (This works but for some reason but it can't be my default profile) Default profile fails to work but others don't. If I set my newly created profile as the default, then the new default profile doesn't work. Odd.

Anyway, if anyone has any insight on fixing this issue then it would be great. The dropdowns have been broken for a few months but I have just dealt with them. Thank you for any help over the topic.

Not sure what topic fits. I love Thunderbird but after so many years, this is still an issue. I just had to reformat my computer because it probably had malware or a virus and it was running slow. I do the usual backup of emails and all (I do this about once or twice a year so I'm experienced at it). Reformat laptop, install everything back, all is good, except Thunderbird. For some reason, it refused my re-installing my profiles in the profile folder as usual. I've spent 3 days trying to figure out why it wouldn't work this time. What did I do wrong. Nothing. Found the answer this time. The .bak copies were screwing it up. After reading about 50 help articles, this one comment in one of the Mozzilla support groups worked. After so many years, can't we do something about the way the software saves stuff and can we make the software actually have a proper backup system of all emails and addresses? Even Microsoft Outlook has 2 ways, the backup(export/import) way and the manual way by going into the Roaming folder like Thunderbird does. And make the program be able to import this back up it just made. So yes, please, make the program have a proper backup and restoration bit on it so I can stop this extended wait of trying to recover my stuff.

My viewable layout is a list of Folders on the left where saved messages are; right top is a scrollable list of messages from the active Folder showing the Subject line of each; then on the bottom right is the text of the active message. I know these all have proper names, but I ha e no clue.

Under the list of messages, the number shown is selectable, but no matter what I set that to, T'bird wants to highlight the one I'm looking at in the second spot. I.E. I can look at the one listed first, but if I delete it, T'bird moves to the next message. Or if I scroll the 'heading' off the screen of the one being looked at, then delete it, T'bird justifies the list, highlighting the 2nd one.

How can I have it default highlighting to the first one?

Please forgive my ignorance of all the proper terminology.
