Hi,

I am confused about the two ways we control cookies. Firefox says its blocks trackers ( ie cookies), esp third party ones, which are the problematic ones. 

But when we surf, we see options to accept third party cookies. So far I always go ahead and select No. But could I be saving time by clicking yes; knowing Firefox blocks them anyway ? Shouldn't there be a way that Firefo sends information to the site I'm visiting automatically about my wish not to have third party trackers?

Thanks, Caroline

Hi all When I open Firefox on my iPhone 7 (iOS 12.4.1) it now shows I have 'Firefox Daylight 32.0 (3841)'. When I look online or in Firefox Support there is never any mention of the word 'Daylight' in the latest browser for iOS. Why is that? Are there different iOS browsers I can choose from? If so do I have the only/latest/best iOS for my iPhone?

Also I can't find any setting that gives permission to remember previous entries to online web forms that I fill in (e.g. Covid registering form when visiting restaurants etc.). The When I open some of these forms in Firefox some don't remember my previous entry data, even though i have filled it out for their premise many times before. Is this a function of the particular premise software that they could be using, or is there a setting in my Firefox browser I need to adjust for particular websites?

Thanks in advance for your help. David

For a long time now (at least a few months), intermittently and while browsing Google Analytics, I need to refresh every other screen because the tables on the bottom of the screen sometimes do not scroll down. Refreshing via F5 fixes this, but needs to be reinforced when the table is tweaked. It might go away if the table is completely changed by navigating to another report with another URL.

When this error happens, it feels like as soon as the page is loaded, the viewport flickers, and a second scroll bar pops up. This causes the long tables on the lower half of the screen to remain unscrollable, even though fully loaded and present.

As a curiosity, the "Take a Screenshot" option can scroll down the page (while saving a an entire page, or via the selection tool). Nohuman input can replicate this. I have tested Tab, arrows, Page Up/Down buttons, manually scrolling from either scroll bar or the mouse wheel from anywhere on the screen, search, etc.

Hello, since the last Thunderbird update to 78.x.x, I have issues following hyperlinks containing button tag.

<a href="https://google.com">REGULAR LINK<a> "working as intended" i.e. opens https://google.com URL in web browser:

<a href="https://google.com"><button>BUTTON LINK</button><a> This version first downloads .html file at https://google.com to temp, then runs "open file as" dialogue. Selecting web browser then, of course, opens file at file:///tmp/____.html URL.

Am I misusing the <button> tag? I don't want to immediatelly blame the last Thunderbird update but both cases functioned as typical link in previous versions.

Thank you, Tomáš

I've had a website for about 20 years and I have several email addresses based on that domain name. I recently switched web hosts, so I moved all of my emails into Local Folders. When I was set up with the new webhost, I attempted to move them from Local Folders back onto the mail server so that I would have access them to from other devices. Thunderbird crashed while I was transferring hundreds of emails. When I restored Thunderbird, I learned that all of my emails from the last 13 months were missing. Losing these emails wasn't an option, so I had to pay my webhost to recover my emails from a backup. Unfortunately, the backup was a month old, so I lost all of my emails from October 2020.

Needing to respond to a customer, I searched for the message thread and found it. When I click on any of the emails, I just get a blank page. Ah yes, they're all from October 2020. Doing some research, I understand that these are the remnants of those messages from the index. I could repair the Global index so that I no longer get search results for emails that no longer exist. But that's the last thing that I would want to do! Right now I can see the subject line, to, from, the date, and the first few sentences from each email -- in some cases, the entire email. How is that not enough information to recover the emails into my inbox? A truncated email is better than nothing at all and, as I say, in some cases I can see the entire email. "Repair Folder" changes nothing, and the Recover Deleted Messages extension doesn't work in Thunderbird 60+. Hasn't Mozilla, or some third party, created an extension to recover emails from the index?

Hello community,

Here is the problem I am facing: There is a difference between the Handler settings that I deploy through GPO and the local settings of my client in the handlers.json file.

Here is an example with Adobe Acrobat Reader: Parameters injected via GPO:

[code]{"defaultHandlersVersion":{"fr":3},"mimeTypes":{"application/pdf":{"action":3,"extensions":["pdf"]}}}/code

Parameters received by the client (handlers.json):

[code]{"defaultHandlersVersion":{"fr":3},"mimeTypes":{"application/pdf":{"action":0,"ask":true,"extensions":["pdf"]}}}/code

ADM version: 2.1 Firefox ESR version: 78.1.0

What clues would you give me to explore to find the cause of this / these differences?
