New laptop. I believe there are major issues with Windows 10. I've posted them on MS message boards but no one is experiencing them (don't notice? Don't care?). I use Firefox, and while I don't believe Firefox is the problem, I thought I'd post some of them here (the short version).

Links open by themselves without me clicking or tapping on them. When I'm in a Hotmail email or message board compose screen, or a web page with fields to enter personal information, very often when I click to a spot, the screen scrolls up by itself (happens in Chrome too). Sometimes, writing an email, when I click to a spot, the cursor will instead appear a few lines up (not where I clicked). Even if I don't click, the cursor might, all of a sudden, jump somewhere else while I'm typing, or paused typing (even in a Google search field). At times, when I hit the backspace - to remove characters, text - I'm taken back to the previous web page instead. I have seen this complaint when I searched it. But I don't want an Add On that disables the backspace. I just want it to work as it should, not take me back a page.

And no, it's not malware. And I didn't have these issues with my old Windows 8 and 8.1 laptop.

Hi,

I have TB 78.4.0 32-bit and am holding at that version until some add-ons are updated. Ever since upgrading to the 7x version of TB, folder compacting does not seem to work. I have the option checked to compact when it would save 250MB. What happens is that I delete a message, TB prompts me to compact, I say yes, it tries to compact, and then the next time I delete a message it prompts me to compact again.

Not only does the amount of space it claims I will save by compacting unchanged on subsequent prompts, but over the months it continues to get larger - right now it says I will save over 1GB. It makes no difference if I have it prompt me or just compact automatically.

When I click on compact I have tried switching away and doing something else for an hour or two to make sure I'm not interrupting it somehow, so I don't think it's that.

What I have noticed is that it seems to start compacting local folders, and then gets "interrupted" by attempting to purge my main Yahoo IMAP account (all the others are gmail). It'll say something like "Compacting Local Folders: Trash" and then suddenly the status bar switches midway to logging into the IMAP, it attempts to purge the IMAP inbox, and then it figures it's done and quits after checking the IMAP folders. It doesn't continue/resume the local folder compacting. I'm pretty sure it thinks it's finished, since it says that compacting is complete and I've saved 1.2 GB, and then 5 minutes later when I delete a message it tells me that I need to compact to save 1.2 GB of space and the same thing starts all over again.

I've tried right-clicking on individual mail folders to compact them one by one from the menu, but that appears to do nothing - it doesn't even try to compact.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I can get compacting to work again?

Thanks!

Greetings,

Today, I went to access my Bookmarks, & found them "Empty", other wise "Missing"!

I found the "How to recover missing Bookmarks" topics, & that did bring back,what I consider to be My "Permanent Books", bu the section called "Other Bookmarks" will not come back, no matter how many times I go through the "Restore Bookmarks".

I Absolutely need that section to be restored, for I had many files in that section that I updated daily, that I planned to move to the "Bookmarks Section".

How can I get get this section restored?

New layout of page after update

The group for MusicPi used to be at the left of the screen just before BedPi's group.

Yes, there is a problem with the height/size of the groups which is/was a suspect, but thinking about it a bit more: It was working until the upgrade.

The notion of losing control of my fifteen email accounts is terrifying. Among other things, it is imperative for me to have use of the Manually Sort Folders add-on that I've been using for years with the whole series of versions up through 68.12.1. Attempting to rebuild fifteen email accounts with what sounds like a wildly different account creation process is basically not going to work. All of the relevant information for each of the accounts is long since tucked away in Thunderbird itself and extracting it to somehow "start over" on a wildly different system is not going to be acceptable. So the key point is this: can Thunderbird v68.12.1 (what I'm using now) be SEAMLESSLY updated to v78.8.0?!? That is, I point at the update (at my choice of timing, absolutely never permissible to allow anything to be updated at some system operator's choice of timing or even *whether* to do an update) and it proceeds and automatically results in an immediately correct and functioning Thunderbird not different other perhaps for some colors and trivial operational changes, but losing absolutely nothing of my existing structures. Can that happen or is this v78.8.0 basically a "whole new world" requiring entirely different approaches to everything?

I just tried today, but I don't know when it started, but all of the streaming services I have access to are not working in Firefox (on MacOS 11.2.2, Firefox 86.0). They give the following errors:

Disney+ - Something went wrong. Please try again. If the problem persists, visit the Disney+ Help Center (Error Code 83)

Prime - We're experiencing a problem playing this video. For assistance, please go to www.amazon.com/videohelp.

Netflix - Pardon the interruption. This title is not available to watch instantly. Pleast try another title. - 1044. Error Code F7121-1331

I've tried multiple videos on each service, all produce the same errors. I've rebooted my machine. I've flushed all cache and cookies. I've tried in safe mode.

Youtube and Twitch both work. Strangely enough the "Watch Trailer" on Prime works. On the same machine Chrome and Safari play all services fine.

This makes me think it's either a privacy guard setting or a DRM setting. I've also checked my media.mediasource settings and they are all default. Play DRM-controlled content is also enabled.

Anyone have any help or other things I can check?

I depend on being able to post large lists of email addresses into an email client in order to create an email group without creating individual contacts for each address. This is useful for managing classes, workshops, and conferences, among other things. For years I've been using Mulberry, which supports this feature, but my university is moving to a server that won't allow me to continue to use Mulberry.

Is it possible to do this in Thunderbird? My attempts so far haven't been successful, but I'm hoping there's a trick to make this happen.

Thanks! Steve
