Hi all, I am currently running Thunderbird 102.0. Everytime I start it a message pops out after a while saying the latest version cannot be installed automatically and should be downloaded directly from TB website. When I check for updates in TB it says its updated, even though I know its not since theres now 102.1 out. On the website it says that the latest version is not available as automatic update for versions 91 or older but since I am running 102.0 it should be installed automatically right? The same problem is happening for like 3 months now. Its like TB stopped the automatic updates. It frustrates me having to manually download and install every new version or the constantly popping up message asking me to do it. Any idea how to repair it?

Also strange thing I noticed when I checked the history of updates it says the latest update installed is 91.9.0 from 5th May 2022.

Thanks for your help

Hi,

First off, I have only ever used Firefox in English. I don't speak enough of any other language well enough to do otherwise. I booted up my gaming PC today and opened Firefox, and the language on my menus, bookmarks toolbar, and almost all Firefox UI has randomly changed to what looks like it might be Greek. I can't change it back. It looks from the settings page that the selected language is English, but again I don't speak or read Greek so I have no idea what's going on here. I've run a virus scan, nothing came up. I tried clearing the Firefox startup cache, that didn't help. It's only the Firefox menus that are in Greek, webpages are still showing up in English like they should.

Can somebody help me fix this please? I use Firefox as my main browser on all of my PCs and I don't want to have to switch to using Chrome on one of them. Thanks!

When I am in 1 window, I have multiple tabs open, but when I hover over the Firefox logo in my taskbar, the tabs appear in different windows that have each tab but not the other tabs from the window I am on. Like every individual tab has its own window. This has never happened to me before, only started happening today.

I have four individual accounts which were all listed in a combined inbox as well as individual account inboxes. After the update to 102.1.2, the unified inbox only contains emails from one of the accounts. The other accounts are still listed individually. Is there any way to fix the unified inbox so it includes all the accounts again?

I lost my old session and while attempting to fix the issue I overwrote my sessionstore.json backups in the process. Now all i have are the upgrade.jsonlz4 files, i know those are old session backups from when we upgraded. how do i go about restoring those as a session? when i follow the typical session restore steps nothing happens seemingly because its a jsonlz4 - XXXXXX file.

Any way to change it to a normal jsonlz4 file?

Hello. I did a "Search" in Thunderbird, but it seems to yield results of e-mails that have long been deleted and expunged. When the "results list" came up, I clicked on a few of the results which I thought had been deleted and emptied from Trash. After clicking on it, just a blank conversation came up. (So it seems it WAS deleted. Why is it appearing the search-results list?) Question -- (a) If the e-mail is really still there somewhere, then I can I access it? (b) If the e-mail is NOT there anymore, then I can I prevent the Search mechanism from showing non-existent results?

Thank you very much for the help!

Sincerely, J Rosenberg

ISP is not issue as my husband's Thunderbird is working.

There is not "Usability" topic. Hence selected "Other".

Containers are one of those features that I use almost in every Firefox session. It clearly segregates my office and personal work. I am asking for a feature, that could already be there somewhere in the advanced configuration (about:config).

Before asking let me set the context. Before containers, I used profiles to separate my work. But the disadvantage of profiles is that the cache, auto-fill, history all those convenient features are not the same everywhere. But the advantage of profiles is that every shortcut key, clicking of link would open in the same work area profile. I don't have to open context menu and select a profile each time.

"Container Windows" could be such a feature which is best of both worlds. I am not aware if this is already there. At least the feature is not obviously visible. There is a feature in "multi-container plugin" which can move all the tabs belonging to a container to a separate window. if we add a feature, in this plugin or Firefox core, to bind a particular window to just one container then it can bring all the goodness of "profiles" and we can still use all the features of "containers".

1. Clicking a link in other application would open the default container (no-container) window 2. Control+Click, by default, opens tab in a bound container window, and hence in the same container 3. Context menu in all windows (bound and unbound) still gives an option to open tab in any container

Please let me know how to do this, if this is already implemented. Or tell me where to raise this feature request.

Hallo, I use pop servers for the download of my email messages. I have two accounts (telecom.de and web.de) In both cases the server settings are: fetch header only

After the update from 102.0.3 to 102.1.1 on 6th of august I get the headers, but I cannot retrieve the body of the message. This is the case for both accounts.

No thunderbird settings were altered. When I deactivate "fetch header only" the body of new messges in the in-box appear normally, but of course I prefer to see the header first, before I download a Message.

Is this problem known? Is there a way round?

Many thanks Werner

Hello folks,

I had 1025 tabs open in FF, in various groups using SimpleTabGroup. Somehow I've managed to get into a situation where, when I start FF, I get just three or four of my most recently used tabs on startup.

I have no idea how to get back to the 1025 tabs I really want, but when I close FF I'm asked whether I want to close 1025 tabs, so hopefully they're still available somehow...

Any advice gratefully received!

Thanks in advance.

NB: Firefox 103.0 (64 bit). Xubuntu Linux.

Before I updated to FF 103.0.1, links I clicked on in e-mails in Outlook would open in an FF window using my existing default profile. Since updating to FF 103.0.1, these links open in an FF window with a virgin profile. If no such window was already open (from clicking on another e-mail link) this will be a new FF window, even if FF was already open with my normal profile. As a result, e-mail links to PDFs open the files directly in FF (instead of asking me where to download them to, as I have configured in my profile) and I am missing my stored passwords when the links lead to websites that require login.

This is a real PITA! Is there anything I can do other than revert to an earlier FF version? Please help!

I am running Windows 10 2021H2.
