I am starting a new thread even though I saw a lot of people are having this issue with the latest vs of Firefox and it was never answered. Just marked as answerd.

I was trying to download a pdf from my banking app which never had an issue before. I get the download failed in the notifications dropdown men. I don't know if it makes any difference but it's always 2 messages and they recur every day. Not sure what It was that I was trying to download this last time but it's still trying to get the file. (pdf) I just want it to stop. I will use Dolphin or something to get files until it is fixed in Firefox. I delete cache, quit, close all tabs etc. I had already tried the uninstall & reinstall to no avail. Whatever it's still trying to get its a pdf also. Note 9 One UI 2.0. Android 10

After upgrading Thunderbird from v68 to v78 over the weekend, everything looked fine, but then I realized some emails display badly with Windows 10 running in Dark mode. Changing the Windows settings to display apps in Light mode doesn't help (and make other parts of Windows Light instead of Dark mode).

What I'm trying to find in about:config is a flag to tell Thunderbird to run in Light mode as I can't see many of my emails. I can highlight the body, but that's just a lame workaround.

First image show how the text is unreadable because Thunderbird only changed the background layout, but not the text; Image on the right I highlighted the whole email so I could read the text.

I saw other suggestions that either require meddling with some .css file quite heavily, or installing some add-on that doesn't fix the problem.

We just need a configuration flag to prevent Thunderbird from using the Windows Dark Mode (or more generic, one that doesn't follow the Windows Light or Dark mode on us).

Thank you developers.

My iMac is fried, unrecoverable... but I was able to save the whole Thunderbird folder containing Crash Reports, installs.ini, Pending Pings, Profiles and profiles.ini which I believe is everything, all my emails and accounts etc.

I have transferred the data to a Mac Pro running Mojave on a spare drive. I have installed a Thunderbird on my Mac Pro. I have tried numerous fixes but I couldn't get Thunderbird to see my emails, and it would start with Welcome and Set Up Existing Email Address which isn't what I want, but having tried a few ways I have become unsuccessfully familiar.

I have tried http://kb.mozillazine.org/Moving_your_profile_folder_-_Thunderbird "Nothing you do works" (but I think it was referring to Windows so that's not good ;) by completely deleting the profiles.ini file, starting Thunderbird and thus creating a new profile, copying the "contents" of my of my Profiles/ui1yf25m.default folder and replacing the data over the top of the newly created Profile (which has nothing of worth in it) but it keeps the newly created working Profile folder intact thus Thunderbird should see the data and load all my emails and accounts - but it didn't.

The newly created profiles.ini file had 0dcrwgtx.default (which I moved all my files into) plus it had izoic061.default-release (so 2 profiles stumped me).

Wiling to try anything :) John

I have 68.6.0 on my Mac and could not update because there was a problem in the software on the following versions that did not allow and update on Mac's.

If I down load 78.3.2 how do I get all of my emails, folders and address book on this version from my existing version?

I have tried down loading it but the set-up is terrible and convoluted. I have tried keeping my profile and inserting that, but compared to earlier versions of Thundebird the set up is completely unintuitive and what ever you click on does nothing.

In years gone by, you simply removed the new profile and inserted the old one in Finder>Go>Library>Thunderbird> Profile and everything was there. Now it's a mess.

On installing Firefox today, I tried importing my passwords from Chrome. It seemed to work with no error report but, when I accessed any sites, the saved passwords that Firefox auto-filled were all incorrect. I'm not going to reset scores of passwords. Is there something I should do, apart from uninstalling Firefox and reverting to Chrome?

Like I said, upgraded to Windows 10 over the weekend. Figured there would be some tweaks and hiccups, but this is getting out frustrating. We use Google Drive for work, often needing to download files from there. Upon attempting to download anything I'm redirected to a page with this error message:

"The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to doc-0o-6k-docs.googleusercontent.com.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."

I've reinstalled, checked for updates, snagged java, flash, tried firefox safe mode, cleared cache and cookies, and I'm running out of ideas here. Seems to be no problem using Chrome, so problem is unique to firefox which is unfortunate since FF is my browser of choice.

Cheers for the help in advance!
