'recommended by pocket' option not visible in about:preferences#home, not in new tabs

I am unable to get the 'recommended by Pocket' panel to appear in new tabs with my normal user Firefox profile (Firefox account sign-in) on Mac Catalina. When I go to about:preferences#home the option simply is not present.

I created a new user login on my mac to access banking and other financials. This uses a separate Firefox profile (including new Firefox account sign-in and email), and the 'recomended by Pocket' panel is present.

The panel is present on new tabs opened for my normal Firefox account sign-in on my iOS (iPhone) Firefox install.

The about:config settings searching for 'pocket' appear to be the defaults, and match the settings in the financials account.

I have tried in 'safe mode' (add-ons disabled) and have done a Firefox 'refresh', however my add-ons (and presumably everything else) were restored when I signed back into my normal Firefox user account.

Hovering over the Pocket icon in the address bar displays 'save to Pocket', implying to me that it has signed me into Pocket. I've signed in at getpocket.com. New Firefox profiles without signing in do not show 'recommended by Pocket' in either new tabs or the about:preferences#home configuration page, but I expect the functionality requires being signed in to a Firefox account.

Help or suggestions much appreciated.

I have just now set up the new version of Thunderbird. I must have made some mistake in setting up my new account. I can enter the "to" from my address book but cannot figure out how to send "cc" to multiple addresses. I can send with one cc recipient but can't figure out how to include multiple cc recipients.

I love Thunderbird - it is a great email system.

As you can guess from such a fundamental question, I am quite elderly and not a teckie.

Any chance that one of the youngsters among your volunteers can help an old man out?

I am using Firefox 83.0 64-bit on a Windows laptop.

I was hoping to prototype some website code locally (using the Windows directories) prior to testing with a proper website.

I have been unable to get sessionStorage (or localStorage) to pass variables to another page unless they're in the same Windows directory. For instance, if I create 2 very simple and cut-down test files: Test1.html and Test2.html, that contain the following JavaScript:

Test1.html window.sessionStorage.setItem ("html", element.innerHTML); alert ("posting " + window.sessionStorage.getItem ("html")); window.open ("Test2.html", "_self");

Test2.html var html=window.sessionStorage.getItem ("html"); alert ("received " + html);

then it works if the two files are in the same directory. But if Test2 is in a subdirectory, and I change the open call to:

window.open (".\\subdir\\Test2.html", "_self");

then it receives null instead of the HTML that Test1 is sending. I am guessing that there is some code that is treating the change of directory as a cross-origin issue, even though they're under the same root directory.

I appreciate that the specification may be a bit vague in this non-Web situation, but Chrome does what I would expect. I thought someone might want to take a look to check if this was an oversight or deliberate.

I have used Thunderbird for many many years. In recent years, as everyone uses electronic calendars, I have depended upon a linkage between the Outlook Calendar and Thunderbird. This has been through the Lightning add-on. With the updgrade to v78 this has stopped working. What do I do to reconnect these two critical tools?

This is my second attempt to get some help with this ongoing issue;

I have uninstalled and re-downloaded through 3 versions now without a resolution. Both complete uninstalls without saving preferences. I have tried a FF restart as well.

The only add on I load is the Download Them All, but it happens even before I add that.

I always put the tabs on bottom by changing the true to false on tabs on top.

I have also tried using www.advanceduninstaller.com "Clean Your System Registry" with no luck.
