On my laptop (Macbook Pro 2020; macOS 10.15.7), in Thunderbird (78.6.1; 64-bit), within only one email account (IMAP; server type = owl), the messages I see in every folder for that account disappear every time Thunderbird checks for new messages. (I have changed the time value to verify this.) This of course just started happening today, has worked fine for many months before this (even last night), and I recall no changes having been made to trigger this.

I can see the messages in any given folder again "if" I click on another folder and then back on that original folder. It is as if Thunderbird is forced to reload/re-show them. Or, I can right click on any folder, choose Properties and then click Repair Folder. This, too will restore visibility to the messages, until Thunderbird checks for new messages; whereupon, they all disappear again.

In order to give you wonderfully helpful people more information, just in case...

  • I did add this email account in Thunderbird using the Owl for Exchange extension, which has worked great. I do not know if it may be the culprit. Restarting Thunderbird in Safe Mode cannot verify this operation since the account is not even available when doing so.
  • I have multiple email accounts created in Thunderbird, even other IMAP accounts, and this only happens with one account.
  • This same problem email account does not have issues online or through my phone.
  • I noticed that this problem email account is the only one that will not allow me to Compact Folders. That option is greyed out for some reason.
  • If I have unread messages in my Inbox, then the Inbox folder still indicates as much, even though the messages are not visible until I re-jog things.

I am currently out of ideas.

Suddenly, Firefox won't load Google Calendar. I see the template, but the items on the calendar won't load. I know it's not the calendar itself because it loads fine in Chrome and on all my android devices. I made sure all the add-ons were taken off. I refreshed. I cleared the cache. Erased history. Nothing worked.

I finally gave up, backed up all my bookmarks, and deleted Firefox. I downloaded it fresh and installed it again. Same problem! The calendar won't load. I found others complaining, but no one had a solution.

Not to be a conspiracy theorist, but a friend told me this was part of a "browser war" and Firefox would no longer support a variety of sites and apps. Is that true? Or do you have a solution.

Hello,

I have some trouble adding an e-mail address to the monitor service. It seems that the e-mail bounce back.

Live stream TV on Xfinity app blurs after 8-10 seconds. Initially the picture is crisp and clear then turns fuzzy.

This does not happen when I access recorded versions of the same program. The channels involved are not those restricted to be accessed only via my in-home wifi.

It occurs with a handful of certain cable network channels and it happens whether I'm using my laptop with Comcast or Charter ISPs. This condition does not appear with other web browsers.

Nor does it happen on my iPad, just my MacBook Pro and it hasn't always been an issue with the MBP. As far as a time frame goes, I would say it started happening within the last 6-9 months.

I appreciate any efforts to help. Thanks.

Привет всем.

прописываю настройки Base DN + порт 389+имя пользователя + фильтр (mail=*), поддерево(у коллеги попробовали у него всё работает). иду в адресную, пишу @, ни чего. ну думаю дай поменяю настройки (не удалил со строки поиска @).

иду в настройку адресной книги, в автономно нажимаю синхронизировать - репликация выполнена, при этом в адресной книге - не закрытой которая с @ открыта, контакты появляются. ну думаю, вроде как можно смириться с костылём - синхронизировать раз в полгода не напряжно - если экспортировать этот список. выделяю все из списка, экспорт в csv, импорт - он создаёт по имени файла книгу, но ругается что книга пустая - 0 контактов импортированных.

я пробовал и 68.хх и 17.хх

Windows 10 Pro + thunderbird 78.x.x


translate: Hello everybody.

I prescribe the Base DN settings + port 389 + username + filter (mail = *), subtree (a colleague tried everything for him). I go to the address, I write @, or anything. Well, I think, let me change the settings (did not delete it from the search bar @).

I go to the address book settings, in offline mode I press synchronize - the replication is complete, and a contact appears in the address book. Well, I think, it seems like you can put up with a crutch - synchronizing every six months is not stressful - if you export this list. I select everything from the list, export to CSV, import - it creates a book by the file name, but it swears that the book is empty - 0 imported contacts.

i tried both 68.xx and 17.xx

Windows 10 Pro + thunderbird 78.x.x

I use Firefox on a Macbook.

I configured the search (about:preferences#search) to include only one search engine: DDG. As a result, when the URL/search bar is focused, the bottom bar with "This time, search with..." is not displayed. This is the expected behavior.

Starting about a month ago, it started exhibiting a bug: at random times, the search settings are getting reset. So whenever I open a new tab and focus the URL/search bar, the bottom bar with "This time, search with..." is appearing and displays four icons. When I go to search preferences, I see the same search engines that I removed a while ago.

This pattern has repeated about five times, and I'm getting tired of it. Is there a way I can make sure that Firefox remembers my preferences and doesn't reset them?

Thank you, Alex

  1. 1. Ought to have a "Suggestions" in the topic list.

My observation is that you have just changed the Bookmark Lookup function to show only bookmarks. It use to show folders as well. When I wanted to find a bookmark, it is often to move it to a more "consistent" place in bookmark map, and you can't do that any more.

Also on the Bookmark Edit page, it would be awfully helpful to have it's folder label displayed there as well.

As a recovered Outlook user, I much prefer Thunderbird. But there are a few features that I miss.

I frequently forward emails to one of a small group of people. In Outlook I could set up a macro (which could also be set to a keystroke combination) to forward an email to a specific address. It's not a big deal, but avoids a few mouse and keystrokes. Over multiple times a day it adds up.

If there is a way to do this in Thunderbird I haven't seen it.

Any suggestions appreciated.

On 9 Dec 2020 my Windows 10 computer crashed and as it was still under warranty a serviceman came and replaced my internal hard drive. Therefor I lost everything. I reinstalled Thunderbird on 21 Dec 2020 and got two Thunderbird profiles, one called default-release (now of 1.6 GB) and one called default (of 47 bytes). However, on 30 Sep 2020, I had backed-up the whole of my C-drive onto an external hard drive. The Thunderbird profiles on that hard drive are: .default (of 13.5 GB) .default-release (of 34.7 MB) .default (of 47bytes) .default (of 47 bytes) .default-release (of 10.1 GB) all created on 30 Sep 2020 when I backed up. (The 10.1 GB profile was from a previous hard drive crash and its contents are now part of the 13.5 GB profile.) I presume that the 13.5 GB profile contains all my emails as of 30 Sep 2020. I was thinking that it might be possible to combine my post-20 Dec 2020 emails with my pre-30 Sep 2020 emails. But on searching the web as to how to do this, the general advice is "don't try this, it's not worth the risk, you could lose everything." I also have a twelve year old laptop with one of my Thunderbird mailboxes on it. To practice, I tried pasting the 13.5 GB profile into its Profiles folder but it seemed to be downloading forever. Do those 47 byte profiles have a significance and are they an essential part of downloading your emails? I'd like to persevere with trying to combine emails on the old laptop as I'm an old bloke and not highly computer literate and don't want to risk it on my main computer. Can anyone advise? Thank you,
