June 7, 2021

Hi There,

Used to be there were three dots in the search bar, and when I clicked it I had the option of airdropping a website to my phone, which I found to be considerably convenient; especially if I want to text somebody a website or what have you, something I am browsing on my computer.

Is this no longer possible with the latest update?

Thanks

I wonder if there is anyone who has figured out a way to got back to a previous easier to use Firefox than this new version 89. It is so unclear where one thing starts and ends. I can't tell where my open tabs are either. It's a terrible upgrade. Don't the people working on these things have other more important features to work on? Is there anyone who can provide help and guidance?

I am using a MacBook Air 10.12.6

Thanks

Whoever thought Firefox 89 was a good idea is not someone with whom I agree. 89 is awful - I disregarded the update notice for days but then got sick of the reminder. BAD idea on my part. Is there any way to get rid of the topmost "tab" - they ARE NOT tabs - bar? I really liked the previous tabs that LOOKED LIKE TABS and DID NOT TAKE UP MORE ROOM on the page. Can I go back to the previous version? This one is really bad. Like, REALLY bad. Firefox "developers" need to give an option to check out the new update before committing to it.

The bookmarks are now all spaced out so they can't be read and they take up 2 to 3 times more space. This is AWFUL. The tabs are now "floating around" so they don't look like tabs and also CAN'T BE READ. Isn't there anyone there that knows how to do graphics? Both of these things were just fine and DID NOT need to be changed. And now they're awful and unusable.

How do I change them back?

I’m changing internet providers & was able to get the same username for an email address with the new provider. Of course the provider’s name on the right side of the email address is different. Temporarily I want them both in Thunderbird.

I did some experimenting & used Thunderbird > Rename Profile to change a name. However in AppData > Roaming, the Profile & filepath names did not change.

Before creating the new Profile I could rename the old one to make it easy when choosing profiles to use, but this should not (so it appears) change or upset any Profile or filepath information in AppData.

Are there any hidden potential problems in doing this?

Hi, I moved folders and emails from various old email accounts into a local folder by dragging and dropping. Then once I had them all in one place I dragged the whole folder into my new current email account.

All the folders/emails have gone from my local folder and the folders themselves are in my new email account however all the messages have gone.

I have logged into my webmail account to double check and the same is showing there i.e. it has created all the folders but there are no emails.

Can anyone tell me if it is possible to recover them please?

Thank you

According to this site: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/hyphens the Greek language is not included in the hyphenation support. Since hyphenation rules for Greek exist (for example in LibreOffice) is it so difficult to add Greek to the supported languages? Is there something that needs to be done from some Greek user? If yes could you direct me to what must be done to see if I can do it or find someone to do it (if I can't)?

thank you.

I am using Thunderbird Portable 78.11.00 and it is all in one folder (with its subfolders) and I copy this folder between desktop and laptop and back again when I go away. This used to work fine but now I get the Window-ID message and it will not lunch properly on the laptop.

I have tried launching in safe mode but the same problem occurs.

On the desktop it is installed on drive H: and on the laptop on drive C:

I have read some of the comments and suggestions but do not understand clearly what some experts have recommended and so am still stuck.

Thanks in advance for your help John Horrocks

I am running an environment using IPSWITCH MAIL SERVER (for 15 years btw). I am running multiple workstations (some on physical some virtual) all on Windows 10. I set up Thunderbird (latest version 64 bit) and create my users per workstation. On each workstation the E-mail sets up and works using 993/465 - SSL/TLS - ENCRYPTED PASSWORD. After set up Thunderbird performs perfectly. On EVERY workstation within one or two days the accounts have to be deleted and re-created USING ALL OF THE EXACT SAME PARAMETERS and Thunderbird works again (for one to two days) and then I need to repeat the SAME exercise. About two dozen repeats now. No changes in the network environment. No changes on the mail server. Thunderbird has given me yeoman's service in two firms for twenty five years now and this has just started this year since February. Any ideas anyone?

I have an email account with an organization I volunteer with. They use Microsoft Teams and Office 365. I installed Thunderbird this morning. I added my Gmail account and the email account for my organization. In the Accounts pane on the left side under my Gmail account I can see all of the folders I have for Gmail - sent, trash, etc. On my organization account I can only see my Inbox. I can't see Sent mail. I created the account using an IMAP Connection. How can I see the sent mail folder to see prior sent emails?

I've used Tbird for years. My email account a bellsouth.net account through ATT, that somehow is associated with Yahoo.

After years of working correctly I got an error yesterday: "The POP 3 mail server (inbound.att.net) does not support UIDL or XTING XLST, which are required to implement the “Leave on Server”, Maximum Message Size” or “Fetch Headers Only” options. To download your mail, turn off these options in the Server Settings for your mail server in the Account Settings window".

Its true, I unchecked the Leave on Server and Tbird will now again receive emails. However, that means the email will not remain on the server...which is what I preferred so I had the option of going back and pulling up an old email I had deleted if needed to.

Nobody at ATT can tell me why this is. I would like to go back to checking the box Leave on Server if possible. Can someone help?
