I am running Thunderbird 115.9.0 on Lubuntu 23.10. I have 4 IMAP accounts I use. The folder and file is not shared and I am the only account with access to the directory.

I use emoji as tags for messages, and have a large number of filter rules defined, nearly all of them Tag a message and set the Junk Status to `Not Junk`. These rules are all set to execute `Manually` or on `Getting New Mail`.

If I select a given inbox folder for a mailbox and select `Tools` > `Run Filters on Folder`, all of the messages are properly tagged, however, after some time (10m?, On new mail receipt?) at least one of my mailboxes will lose all of the tags that were previously set for messages. Manually running the filters will restore the tags, until they disappear again some time later.

I've not seen anything in the Browser Console log (but perhaps I'm not using the right term?) Is there any way I can diagnose or fix this issue? Thanks!

As of today, I am unable to scroll with my mouse in google sheets. The scroll bar on the right disappears and I'm taken to the bottom of the spreadsheet and can't scroll back up. I have to use CTRL+Home and then the arrow keys to go down the rows. This appears to be only on Firefox. I tried a different browser and it worked fine.

I have been experiencing a problem with Cloudflare specifically on one site (character.ai) and when the verify you are human pops up. It takes me in a seemingly infinite loop. On the Cloudflare community site they say it could be because of things like adblock but even without any adblock or anything of the sort on it does the same thing. Sadly Cloudflare community doesn't support being used on Firefox. So maybe they don't support being used on Firefox in general? I have contacted the actual websites support but they don't seem to even read submitted inquiries because I never hear anything back from them except the automated message they received it. It is now preventing me from using certain things in general which as before it wasn't that big of a deal but recently they changed the site layout and still allowed you to use the old layout but the verification blocks you from using the old layout. The first one is one from a couple of weeks ago when it only effected me trying to open things in a separate tab and the second one is the newer one which prevents me from accessing the old layout. I'm not sure what to do about it since nothing I specifically could do to solve it has helped. I have opted into sharing data under troubleshooting IDK how well that'll help.

On Firefox 124.0.2 (on Ubuntu 22.04.4 LTS), when I click a download link on a web page, Firefox doesn't download the file. I tried disabling all add-ons, but that did nothing. However, I found that when I deselect "Ask you where to save the files" in the browser's Settings and then click the link, it downloads the file to my Downloads folder. Can someone please point me in the right direction to find a solution for this?

Just now upgraded to Firefox 124.0.2 on Windows 10 - I am not sure what the problem is, but every website (excite Mozilla) is now labelled as "unsafe" by Malwarebytes, and I can no longer log into Gmail using Firefox (other browsers work fine.) How can I revert to a prior version? I could reinstall from a prior version using a old download, but then I lose all my bookmarks, etc.

Made a mistake and installed 157.7.0 on Linux

Now cannot backup/restore to another computer so cannot use that computer.

Old Profile used to be in .thunderbird folder - easy!

Now profile seems to be in /home/oem/snap/thunderbird/common/.thunderbird/26pphmrb.default

This does not contain all emails especially for pop3 and anything after Nov 23. It does not work

Q's

Best way to fix? Can I force it TBird to read the .thunderbird in home directory? Can I install an older version of TBird easily? Is there some other way to restore the profile and clone another computer?

I discovered two issues with Firefox on my Wayland Gnome. Picture-in-picture windows should be opened with the "always on top" attribute, but in Wayland they are not on top. It's not a big deal to manually set always-on-top. Although I need to remember to do this after the window appears. The second problem is related to selecting multiple tabs. I should be able to detach selected tabs from the window by dragging them from the tab bar. A new window is then created with the selected tabs. This doesn't work in my Wayland. I can detach one tab, but not multiple tabs at once. I can still move multiple tabs from one window to another open window. So, as a workaround, on Wayland I need to open a new window and then move the selected tabs there. Which is inconvenient. I am curious if anyone else noticed these things on Wayland. There might be something wrong with my instance of Wayland.

On chrome I have several profiles and different ones use different LastPass (and other) extension services. EVERY PROFILE maintains it's OWN login information.

Firefox, however, does NOT ISOLATE PROFILES. On ANY Firefox profile, if I log into LastPass EVERY PROFILE is forced to use THAT information- even going as far as logging out and logging into the OTHER profile's information/account. This is 1990's level idiotic.

WHY are profiles SHARING LOGIN INFORMATION!? This is entirely stupid and defeats the entire purpose of multiple profiles.

I had this happen with Facebook logins, too... WHY does ONE profile FORCE OTHER profiles to change their login information?! WHY ARE THEY NOT SEPARATED?!

How do I solve this?!

it is the SINGLE biggest reason why I can NOT switch to Firefox again. Chrome does this. Chromium does it. EVERY Chromium browser does this. 10 years ago Firefox did this... and I left it when it QUIT doing this... when it BROKE profile separation.

Why is this STILL a problem?!

I use Firefox in French... but lately, the contextual menu when right-clicking on a web page shows in English. The contextual menu when right-clicking on the Menu bar or Bookmarks toolbar, is partly in French, but with a section in English (the Menu bar)... sometimes, the Menu bar switches to English (I can't seem to isolate what makes it switch or switch back). Other menus show in French and setting for language is set to French.

Is there something I can do to fix this?

When I send a message the writing box shows the characters with the chosen font and the correct size (Corbel - 14px) Once I send the message, opening it again in Sent, the font appears larger (Corbel - 17px) The line-height is also larger. The display of the sent message (in Sent) is the same from the recipient's client. So it seems that the composition settings are not then retained when the message is sent. What could this be due to? I attach two images showing how the text appears when writing, and then instead once sent.
