Under Account Settings, I went to synchronization&storage, clicked Advanced to be sure the files would be available offline. I exited Thunderbird & used File Explorer to go to my root directory to Profiles. There were 2 files, one with the ext of .default-esr which was a large file. The other with ext of .default which was a very small file. I copied both of these to an external drive. Under Account Settings I went to Copies & Folders & under Message Archives, I didn't know what to choose. I need to know how to copy to the Local Folders of the profile for each email account which is 2, Gmail & Hotmail or Outlook. Thanks.

So i browse in private tab, find image and file i want to download. I download them, and few second after the tab is closed or i closing the app, the file delete itself. At best it stays for few minutes. Sometime it delete itself before i close the tab and open the gallery/file manager to check if they still there. Only resulted on me seeing they delete itself.

I noticed that websites in my main firefox profile began showing the time in UTC rather than following my timezone.

privacy.resistFingerprinting and privacy.resistFingerprinting.testing.setTZtoUTC are set to false

Other profiles follow my timezone, so I would imagine that this has something to do directly with my current firefox profile.

Thank you

OAuth2 is REQUIRED now for MS Outlook email, now I get prompts for passwords

I got an email from Microsoft saying my Live.com or Outlook.com email accounts won't be supported in Thunderbird UNLESS I change the settings to OAuth2 in incoming and outgoing server settings.

I even REMOVED the email account and re-added it making sure it was OAuth2.

But for my live.com & outlook.com email accounts I continually get prompts for passwords from Thunderbird. Sometimes I can't even click the RED X at the upper right to shut the prompt down. I just happens over and over until I give it what it wants.

I am tempted to shut down all Microsoft email accounts and switch to Gmail.

I have Thunderbird version 115.12.2 (64-bit) I used Windows 11 23H2 build 22631.3810 Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22700.1020.0

Any idea how to stop these prompts?

I like Thunderbird much more than any other email program I have ever used, and would like to keep it

I can open Firefox. Data does not display when I hover over an area. Example would be in an active area where I should be able to perform an option. Like sending answers on a survey or authorizing a money transfer from a bank. On Facebook messenger, I type a remark & it disappears. It's there if I use my I phone or go to Edge. I know that the box is there & if I scoot the mouse around, I'll usually find the send area. I uninstalled Firefox & reinstalled it. All that did was mess up my saved stuff which I had to fix. This is using my Surface Pro. No one seems to have an answer as yet.
