Hi, I have been using Thunderbird for 5 years now, and like it a lot. But I have a problem now.....

My Thunderbird App link suddenly became unlinked. After searching *thunderbird*.exe there is no Thunderbird.exe file on my computer now. I searched this forum with "Reinstall" and the most recent relevant one said all folders and contact lists would update, and I just download the app and follow the steps.

Then when I download and it says I have a new profile. Then the one "What are my Options" is: Do nothing.

Please give the link to the clear instruction, or advise the steps to retrieve my folder structures, contacts, and have the program connect to my yahoo email accounts (same as before). Thanks!

Suggested improvement... It would be very useful to have the forum search engine to be able to refine searches, instead of expand searches: Example: Search "reinstall" get over 100 results. "How to reinstall" gets over 700 results and most not relevant to reinstall. Maybe my thinking is wrong. Thank you.

Hello all. For the past couple months i've been able to use the web version of Google Earth within the browser with little to no issue. However, about a week or two ago I discovered Google Earth stopped working whenever I tried to use it. I would navigate to Google Earth's website, click "Launch Google Earth", and be met with this loading screen which never changes. I went to Google for help and they had me run Memtest86 on my computer, to which I found all of my RAM sticks were fully functional with 0 error or issue.

I am using the absolute latest version of firefox as well as my operating system. I am running Windows 10 on a custom built PC for gaming, 64-bit. I've tried the following:

-disabling browser addons -restarting firefox -disabling my antivirus -disabling my antimalware -restarting computer (multiple times) -disabling ALL of my browser addons

Now at first google earth wouldn't load in google chrome either, but at some point during my troubleshooting for fixing google earth on firefox, google earth began loading in chrome with no issue. As of now the only browser that can't pull up google earth is Firefox. I've attached a screenshot of the error messages I see when loading Google Earth in firefox.

Please, any and all help would be greatly appreciated. If there's anymore relevant, useful information I could provide then please let me know.

I save many items and documents as PDF files using the Microsoft Print to PDF option, rather than physically printing on my printer. This worked fine for quite some time. This option no longer works when I am using Firefox, but it still works if I use Chrome.

I would rather not have to switch to Chrome whenever I want to print something to a PDF file.

How can I resolve this?

My Firefox version is 86.0 on Mac. OS Version is 11.2.2 Big Sur.

I found that basically all color rendered in Firefox is more vibrant than Safari and Chrome, maybe Firefox doesn't handles color management right and renders sRGB in full P3 color space, lead to a over saturate color for almost every element on webpage.

Hopes firefox can fix this soon, I love the efficiency and privacy features on Firefox, This is the only bit I found a little uncomfortable.

You can test your browser here: https://cameratico.com/tools/web-browser-color-management-test/ if you have a P3 support Mac or Windows.

How to have 3 separate tabs at startup but just one tab when I click HOME icon in Firefox browser bar?

Here's all I want. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. When I start Mozilla Firefox I want it to open with three tabs... ❶ https://www.goese.com/favorites/index.htmlhttps://www.goese.com/reference/unicode.htmlhttps://messages.google.com/web/conversations

From then on, when I click on the home button, I only want the tab/page I'm viewing to switch to this page... https://www.goese.com/favorites/index.htmlhttps://www.goese.com/favorites/index.html

Is Firefox capable of doing this? (Chrome is, but got WAY too slow recently...to a point I couldn't take it anymore.) Right now if I use those three pages for startup, the home button opens a new session in all three pages, which makes no sense to me. I need to be able to specify different & separate pages for "startup" and "home." I'm old so I'm probably just looking at the interface wrong.

Thanks!

I've been trying for some time to determine why my main Firefox profile, the profile I use most of the time, has a lot of trouble when I use Google Street View. The Street View screen essentially freezes when I try and use it. But, taking a tip from Firefox help I opened up a new profile in a new browser. When doing so, the existing Google Street View problem disappeared completely in the new browser. I call my new profile in the new browser my second Firefox browser to use. My question is, can someone explain why the problem disappears in my second Firefox browser? Looking at the options window when I open the Firefox menu, I see a few differences between the two browsers. The big difference is the second browser has much less applications in it. It has 7 applications where as my first browser has 21 applications. Is this the possible reason why the second browser doesn't have the problem that my first browser does? If so, how can I delete some of the applications in the first browser to see if that is the problem? I'm trying NOT to refresh my first Firefox browser as refreshing Firefox caused much problems for me in the past. And, it seems some Firefox aficionado's do say use caution when using a refresh. So, can someone please explain why the one browser, the new second browser, is void of the problem that plaques my first or original Firefox browser? Thank you. Post a Reply

Why does the Firefox print button launch the save window? When I open an attachment from an email to print, the print button automatically wants to save the document as a PDF. If you try to open the PDF after being saved, it will launch the printer function on my MacBook Pro.

I have tried the procedures in the "Fix Printer Problem" article, which does not resolve the problem. If I refresh Firefox, the print button will work for a few days and then reverts to saving files.

I have removed and redownloaded Firefox multiple times, and I get the same results. I have used Firefox for quite a while and never had this problem. This issue is something that has started about two months ago.

Hi.

When logged in to google (e.g., gmail) in one firefox tab, I am them auto-logged in to that same google account in any new tab or window I open. Is there a way to stop this?

I would like to be able to have one tab logged in to a google product (e.g., gmail, google calendar, youtube), but retain a "blank slate" when I open new tabs or windows, so that I can browse anonymously or log in to multiple different accounts (google or otherwise).

I have privacy badger and HTTPS everywhere installed in firefox, have set the browser to block all third party cookies, and to never remember history (high security settings across the board) . I tried enabling Multi-Account Containers, but I'm not sure how to use it and also suspect it is a more complicated functionality than I actually need.

I would imagine there has to be a way to "break" the connection between multiple open tabs or windows. Thanks!

How to recover "Local Folder"

Hi,

It is the second time that the following happens to me: I updated Thunderbird 68 to 78 and all my datas are lost, especially e-mails, calendars and local folders.

I do not worry about my e-mail (which are on the provider's server Imap), or my calendars (which are on my phone), but I really worry about my local folders, as I do not have any back-up of the e-mails located in this folder.

Could you please help me to recover the local folder and all the e-mails in it?

Thanks.

I cannot use OpenPGP encryption on one of my email addresses, because its private key does not appear in the End-to-End encryption of the account setting. Exactly, I can have added the private key through the wizard of the account setting, but there is no private key in the End-to-End encryption of the account setting instead of the private key appearing in the OpenPGP key manager.

The other email accounts are OK, i.e. I can use OpenPGP encryption on the accounts. The differences from the troubled email account are followings: - The troubled email account uses Ed255 not ECDSA algorithm. - Name of the troubled email account includes UTF-8 Japanese characters. - The troubled email account also registers S/MIME private.

Please give me advice on this problem. Thanks.
