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.

I noticed on my iphone the VPN will not stay in the on position. I have to turn it on. But my biggest problem is on my computer where it is imposible to keep it on for more than a second or 2. It just reverts to the off position immedietely after turning it on. I think I will have to cancel as this offers absolutely no protection to my devices.

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

Firefox "Print Preview" has disappeared from the File menu in 84.0.2; all I have now is "Print", which brings up a Microsoft Edge style print dialog. Is this an upgrading error, or is it just the way Firefox will be now?

Ive been searching all over for a solution to this today and can find nothing new on this since the early 2000s. The emails displayed in Thunderbird are all displaying UTC and until today, it had the correct time (Central).

I have verified the following:

1) My system time and timezone Windows 10 settings are correct 2) The Thunderbird options calendar timezone is correct 3) My email can also be read on a web interface that those times are in the correct zone

From those 3, I believe I narrowed the problem down to the client.

An old issue I have found involves the environment variable %TZ%. There are 2 tests suggested that point to this being the case:

1) Running "Date()" in the Thunderbird error console does indicate my timezone being used is UMT.

2) Running 'Components.classes["@mozilla.org/process/environment;1"].getService(Components.interfaces.nsIEnvironment).exists("TZ")' in the error console returns true, which the poster of that test (in 2004) says should return false if things are set properly. That poster does not explain how to change the variable.

Only way I have found to change TZ is by editing autoexec.bat, which no longer exists in Windows 10. I cannot find a setting for it anywhere in the registry. The variable is clearly set somewhere, but how do I change it????

Thank you.

For the last several months some of my emails have ended up in the "Junk Mail" folder somehow. Previously all my junk mail went to "Junk" and was flagged with yellow flame and shortly deleted. The email now going to "Junk Mail" includes some from relatives and Medicare. Fortunately none is flagged as junk but of course is a pain to move to the inbox manually. Has there been a redesign of Thunderbird somehow causing email to end up in that directory? Is that something that my ISP Charter/Spectrum might be causing? Thanks, besides the constant "Not Responding" messages I get, this is making me wonder if I need to find another email program.

I use Firefox as my default browser, and I am an enrolled online student. I have an external logitech camera that works fine on Chrome and Safari (I'm on Mac) but Firefox requires a complete close and reopen after a few hours. It stops accessing the video camera accurately, although the indicator light on the camera still comes on.

This happens regardless of the platform (i.e. Google Meet, Zoom, chat sites).

Does anyone know what's going on? Or what settings can be tweaked? A computer running windows ten is having the same issue.

How do I edit non address autofill data? When I autofill a form, my 1st name comes up correct but last name is all lower case, when I clear the field the Capitalized version is shown. Next time I use the autofill again the small case version appears. A similar thing happens with email address. An old email address (from a prior account) is displayed, but I cannot find any way to get rid of the old email address nor correct it. Everywhere I look on all your instructions, I cannot find any discussion/instructions on how to change Non Address Autofill data. Pleas help as I am getting tired of having to constantly manually change these fileds every time I use autofill. THANKS!!!

Often I have multiple important tabs open which are difficult to rediscover. I have the option enabled for Firefox to remember my tabs before closing. However, for example sometimes when a link gets opened from an external application (by accident), all my tabs get lost. Can I restore the session from just before it happened?

(I asked the same thing last year but got no replies and I'm still having this issue today, I tried to be as descriptive as possible but maybe it was too much text to read. I apologize)
