We have used Thunderbird for 12 years. We do NOT use another email with Thunderbird. (I have Gmail, but it is separate.) When messages have failed to save to Sent, I have always until today blamed our horrible ISP. Now that I see others have this issue, maybe it isn't Windstream after all! Once this issue continued for a whole month, but then resolved. Now, it is intermittent and is maddening. I try to remember to send myself a bcc, but I often forget.

This week the problem got worse when messages that "seemed" to be in sent are blank when called up. Again, I am not mixing up Thunderbird with any other email handler.

I strongly prefer Thunderbird due to the filing system which is far superior to Gmail. I do not want to abandon Thunderbird.

I'm using a new PC with Windows 11. I downloaded Firefox. When browsing in Firefox it has several times caused the whole screen to go black, and the only way to get back is to turn off and turn on again. Even then the Firefox page sometimes comes up again and I have to be quick to tap the X on top right to shut it down - or the whole screen goes black again! Then when I restart Firefox it re-loads the page, so I have to quickly exit before it happens again. So this morning when it happened I just did a full restart of the PC. Then I transferred all my tabs and other info to Edge, and will use that from now on.

What is new that is causing Firefox to do this?

I imagine I could also use Chrome, haven't tried that yet.

Here is one of my crash IDs: bp-f9625951-7706-43b0-8a7f-6f0ae0230129

Since dealing with an issue with my laptop running Linux Mint 20.3 Cinnamon 64-bit involving a mergelist error and packages with missing names, Firefox randomly crashes. Sometimes when it crashes it does it immediately every time I try to open it back up (sometimes even in safe mode), and other times it gets better after a reboot. I just installed the Flatpack version after the original one I had started crashing, so it is strange if it is an issue that just needs reinstalling Firefox, but other apps seem ok so I don't know that it's my OS.

I've tried looking for residual damage on my laptop after the earlier issue, but I can't find much information. System Reports tells me nothing is wrong and I can't make sense of syslogs.

Thank you for reading, I wish I had more details. If the crash report has any clues, please let me know.

102.7.0: Received Threaded E-Mails Display Correct From Name But Contains Wrong E-Mail Content

Hello and Thanks,

Windows 7 Pro ProtonMail VPN Bridge (Proton says ThunderBird works with their Bridge program) ThunderBird 102.7.0

Numerous received e-mails (especially threaded e-mails) are presenting wrong text in received e-mails, while depicting proper titles from the original sender, the contents are not the e-mails sent.

I have done a partial screen grab, please note the sender's name, an individual, not Von's Grocery Store sales receipt. The contents of the received e-mail name and the store are not the same.

The 3 red arrows on the left side, point to the received e-mail sender name, while the red arrows on the right point out the corrupted e-mail content sender name. Not the same!! Those 3 e-mails should contain Art's 3 different e-mails he sent me, the same Von's receipt repeated 3 times.

In that particular thread, three subsequent e-mails are thusly corrupted, each presenting the same content as the other two. Three corrupted e-mails sequentially. Also, when I click on those e-mails, ThunderBird locks up for upwards of 10 to 20 seconds, screen is low-lighted. However, in the ProtonMail e-mail client, the received e-mails are not corrupted.

The only way I have been able to work around the problem and be able to recover the corrupted e-mails, I delete the corrupted e-mails in ThunderBird, (settings don't delete e-mails) but not on the ProtonMail server, which moves the ThunderBird deleted e-mails to the ProtonMail TRASH folder. I deinstantiate ThunderBird, close it. Then I instantiate ProtonMail client, logon, move the trashed e-mails back into the InBox, which then moves those e-mails into the ThunderBird InBox. Otherwise those e-mails in ThunderBird are unreadable and essentially are lost.

I suspect that the corruption is being caused by ThunderBird folder COMPACTING. The e-mail corruptions began to appear after enabling auto-compacting. Several of my friends claim that they too have experienced these type corruption problems with prior versions of ThunderBird, were forced to disable the compacting setting to resolve the problem. I have disabled the COMPACTING as a test.

Any ideas? How to fix aside from disabling COMPACTING?

Thanks in advance - Fractal_One

I'm unsure what to do- and as shown in the attached screenshot all text has been all messed up and it with all tabs and not just a singular one and I'm unsure what to do besides restart my computer.

I've allowed all stuff so hopefully this can help someone with answering this.

My Firefox is opening invisible windows when I right click to "save as" and also recently was opening blacked out menus with no visible options. What is causing this and how can it be fixed?

I just downloaded the most recent update. After restarting because the browser locked up (as it usually always does eventually) now when I right click to save a picture (save as) firefox opens an invisible (file explorer?) window. At first I didn't realize it was invisible. I could see a flash of the outline of the window but as quickly as that happens it seems to vaporize/minimize and become inaccessible apparently. However because of my inquisitive mind I just realized that isn't exactly so. Because I've seen this happen before with your little "clear recent history" options window. So how I realized it was possible to close this 100% transparent invisible window was by hovering my mouse cursor around the outline of where I saw it was where it flash/minimized. By doing so I could find the edges where my mouse cursor changes from a regular pointer arrow to a two sided window expander arrow used to widen or shorted the sides and tops of windows. By locating this I was able to find the top right corner and click on the location of the invisible red "X" button which actually closes the invisible window. This may sound a little crazy but I repeated the same thing twice now since when I came back to the same page to try and save the same picture after restarting firefox a second time, the same thing happened again. By the way when this happens the browser window locks and I cannot access the file menu or choose to cancel/exit firefox even with the red arrow at the upper corner of the windows. Also the file menus of any other firefox windows I have open also become locked. Previoously when this was happening to me I determined that the only way to fix the issue was to kill firefox from windows Task Manager. But at that time (a few months ago) the same issue was occurring. I can't remember if restarting my computer fixed it but that's my obviousl next tstep in case it's an issue with widows itself. I cannot recall how I this issue was remedied the last time it happened. I'm thinking I may have had to uninstall/reinstall firefox or go basically install the newest version on top of the current version (which is supposed to be updated by the way!) Anyways as you're reading this is not the first time this has happened to me in Firefox. It's happened previously at least once or twice within the past 6 months probably after a firefox update I'm seeming to recall. Why do things get screwed up after updates and changes get made that affect my accessibility? This cannot be just happened randomly. Upon researching the topic there was very little I could find and no soulutions in the firefox help forum. I came across something in my searching that this may be an issue with windows file explorer so I tried restarting windows explorer but that did not help either. I have tried restarting firefox once since the update and that did not fix this issue either. I have not tried restarting my computer but I will be doing that next. It's possible I guess that may fix it. It seems that the last time this happened to firefox it eventually was corrected or somehow fixed itself but I don't remember how. Just prior to the restart after this most recent update my firefox actually locked up as a web page was loading and I was trying to access the menu to clear recent history by pressing Ctrl+Shift+Delete since the file menu was locking. This window never actually opened (or perhaps was also made invisible) prior to getting it to close. With that one it can only happen by canceling or clearing. When this happened all the other firefox windows I had opened turned 100% blank white until the locked one cleared. In the meantime I had disconnected my internet to try and get the one page that wasn't loading to stop. But I also forgot to mention that just prior to this happening, not only right click menus but the firefox menu bar menus were opening black; some with a few icons or words but with others completely blacked out like blank, but black blank. I do use dark mode. This is also not the first time I've ever seen that happen (blank menus) in Firefox. In fact it has happened to my firefox several times over the past year around times that the browser became overloaded or after a recent update. In addition I have major issues with firefox maxing out my memory basically every time I use it one the RAM gets full. Why can't firefox self regulate its memory usage so as not to chronically lock up my entire computer on a regular basis? Why do I have to use add-on extensions designed to perform this feat when it should just be built into basic firefox functionality. Firefox should not allow itself to "hang". If tasks cannot be completed within 30 seconds they need to stop. If memory gets beyond a certain point, web pages need to unload automatically and their memory dumped. It's no big deal. Lastly my bookmark menu is a mess and not easily accessible. I don't like having a both a regular bookmarks list and an "other bookmarks" list. A number of years ago I think bookmarks were automatically saved into the regular bookmarks menu and I don't know that ever really used the other bookmarks section if it was even there at the time. But then at some point the auto-bookmarking bookmarks helper started automatically setting new bookmarks to go into this "other bookmarks" folder. This went on for sometime so I just started using "other bookmarks" until again after some recent update within the past year the bookmark settings were changed back by some developers at Firefox to go back to the regular bookmarks menu. But since I got so used to using the other bookmarks menu and don't really know how to consolidate and organize these all into one section I just feel really upset about it. I don't want to have two bookmarks folders unless I designate a separate one myself. I need a power-users bookmark manager and a bookmarks menu with as many user customizable options/settings as possible. The current bookmarks menu looks like it was designed for children. I want to be able to change the view. I want to be able to get rid of duplicates. I want to be able to re-categorize bookmarks from different folders into new folders by subject matter and cross-link bookmarks from different folders by subject matter or by site visited, etc. I think the current bookmarks system is not user friendly. Anybody ever heard of the Humane Interface by Jef Raskin? How about root tabs inside bookmarks folders for people who save all tabs from windows into bookmark folders? There has to be a better way.

I found a batter way to solve that problem.

You should install or reinstall one of the packages xdg-desktop-portal* List them on Ubuntu with:

 ```apt list | grep desktop-portal```

And try to install:

 ```sudo apt-get install xdg-desktop-portal-gnome```

or reinstall:

 ```sudo apt-get --reinstall install xdg-desktop-portal-gnome```

It seems you need to rerun DBus to apply changes, but I just restarted my PC.

If xdg-desktop-portal-gnome won't help then try to install/reinstall xdg-desktop-portal-gtk and xdg-desktop-portal.

From some point on, my Firefox started behaving strangely. When I start up the browser, it opens new window under other opened windows instead of does it above ones. When I try to open new window in an already running browser, it does it properly. In my mind, it's really uncomfortable and unintuitive behavior so it will be good if I can fix this issue and make Firefox starts up normally (on top of other windows) like all other applications in my system. I'm currently running on 64-bit Ubuntu 22.04. Firefox (snap) version 109.0.1.

Thank in advance for any help or advice regarding my problem.
