I'd suggest that you remove this topic from the Help topics because it does not seem to apply to Thunderbird 78+ anymore; apparently the "View" "Folders unified" option takes care of this, and the description is confusing because this version of TB is laid out quite differently. I spent quite a bit of time on figuring out the real process on TB 78, then it did not really work (after restart all the individual boxes were still there- no global inbox under "Local Folders"). Finally, when searching for more help on this, the thread "Thunderbird 78+, Missing "All Mails Folder"" seemed to reveal that all of that was unnecssary. If other version of TB still need the "Global folders" instructions, it would be nice if there was a clear note included that TB 78+ handles this much simpler - which is great! Thank you for all your hard work! E.-A. Gutt

Beginning just a few hours ago, Firefox is starting up in German, which I don't read, with a home page I didn't choose, as shown in the attached image. I've tried going thru the options to change this but nothing seems to help. I restarted my computer (Windows 10) and no difference. The version is 78.3.1esr (64-Bit) and says it is up to date. How can I get back to English and no home page (just an empty tab is my preferred startup)? Thanks for any assistance. (I tried searching for a problem like this in the help and came up empty.)

Immediately after updating TB to Version 78.4 my email accounts with Earthlink and Comcast ISP's stopped functioning (incoming and outgoing). I have used TB for over 5 years and been running IMAP on all my email accounts with previous versions of TB without any issues. After trying fixes found on support forums (i.e. changing config setting security.tls.version.min from 3 to 1) I was able to get my Comcast accounts working but not my Earthlink account (which is my primary account). After 1 1/2 hours with Earthlink Tech support, I was told I needed to reinstall TB with the previous version that worked. For me this is unacceptable. Why use a specific Email client if new versions do'nt work with my ISP's or I need to tweak config files. This should all be transparent to the user. Can anyone help me with fixing my problem. Thanks.

After the most recent update, 78.4.0, I cannot receive emails. I can send emails. Also the folder icons changed from yellow to white. Erols.com (RCN) is my email host. I can still receive emails on my phone and through mail2web.com. I have tried turning off firewalls, both Webroot and the native one in Windows 10. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling both latest version and an earlier version. I checked to make sure the proper password was still saved. When I hit the Get Messages button, there is a "Connected to pop.rcn.com..." in the bottom pane where the "unread" and "total" are listed. It just vanishes after a bit. Anybody got a cure?

Error: Sending of password for user xxx@yahoo.com did not succeed. Mail server pop.mail.yahoo.com responded: Server error - Please try again later.

I have three Yahoo email accounts. Few days ago, one of them stopped working under TB. Cannot send or receive. At Yahoo's website all the emails are being received and sent properly. That account works fine in my Apple cellphone too. Just doesn't work in TB.

OS: Linux Mint 20 Cinnamon TB: 68.10.0 (64-bit)

Have deleted account password in TB, and reentered after booting TB. Nothing was touched in Account Settings, though have checked everything (servers, etc.).

What else should I be looking for?

Thank you.

I have a laptop with two cameras and 3 sound inputs. On websites that use webrtc (eg. meet.google.com), a permission dialog pops up to allow or deny access to a microphone and camera.

Those permission dialogs have a drop-down, but the drop-down has only one choice. Rebooting re-organizes which camera or microphone is in the drop-down list. Probably because of USB wakeup.

So to choose which camera to use I have to reboot and hope the right one is in the drop-down.

This morning I woke up to the new "Fenix" update (v79) of the Firefox Android app. Lots of UI/UX changes, missing addons, too many steps for basic functionality and an overall "stripped" feeling/experience.

Why was this big update not announced well ahead of time, like with Firefox Quantum? It feels like a completely different browser and a jarring experience to get this pushed into the stable channel without prior notification.

Don't get me wrong; I've been using Firefox for at least the past 10 years and it's always been my favorite browser experience on both desktop and mobile. This update feels like it's packing too many changes at once. I'll hold off the update until it's proven stable, extensible and featureful.

For people who didn't yet receive the update: it might be a good idea to read up on the upcoming changes and if you want to move to Fenix.

For people who already had the update: what are your thoughts on the new Fenix experience?

Hello,

excuse me, this is a translation.

Could you tell me, please, if there is finally a solution for the bookmarks that are in gray and not yellow as before, because gray is very unpleasant and if possible we can change the color of the bookmarks, thank you.

I managed to compile firefox on linux ubuntu but did not generate the executables for windows.

Then I started configuring on windows, but I believe the problem is with the Visual Studio version, I installed the latest version of VS 2019, then I found that it doesn't work, because VS 2019 now requires the "C" compiler version 10, and mozbuild uses version 9.

I ended up discovering in other documentation that I have to use visual studio 2017, but I installed VS 2017 version 15.9.29, however it gives error in the compilation.

I found in other documentation that I must use VS 2017 version 15.8, but this version is not available for download.

Can anyone help me what I have to do to be able to compile it?
