Hi, I am new to Thunderbird and not very computer savvy.

I have successfully set up my mail account and am trying to apply filters to incoming mail. The filter is very simple: If the message contains FROM "@mail.zillow.com" send the message to the ZILLOW folder (under that email address).

I have checked the filter log and it says "could not get filter db". I have tried to run the filter manually - no go.

I have tried to read about others who have a similar issue and it talks about debugging. I'm sorry. I do not know how to do this.

Thank you in advance for help.

I had set up a userContent.css file in the past to pull up and fetch an image on my computer to display as a background on the homepage. It worked and did it's job until recently, when I had recently relocated a lot of my files around on my computer. I have redirected everything to where I want it to look, including the userContent.css file to the new location for the image I want as the background. Firefox loads the .css file correctly, and recognizes the file existing, but it won't load the image itself for some odd reason. It states it "may not load or link the file" because of a security error, and thus, can't load the image. I never had to deal with this before. How can I get Firefox to be able to load my image like I want it to? I have screenshots that I can provide, but this site doesn't want to upload them at the moment.

This may be a duplicate complaint, as I got cut off before I could complete. With at least two banks I use, FireFox displays data-entry boxes for dates incorrectly - it truncates the last digit. Chrome (the gold standard?) displays correctly. My example images, first from Chrome, second from FireFox, seem to have survived the cut off.

This is so bizarre because it just started happening today.

Basically, I can't dismiss this one notification you see below. I can click on Dismiss or Dismiss All a hundred times and nothing happens.

I read on a thread from last year that another guy was having the same problem but he emphasized that it only happens with Zoom events. This reminder is a Zoom event so I wonder if it's related?

Any help would be appreciated!

Information on how to add the Google 'Tasks' into Thunderbird Calendar: I have a gmail imap account using OAuth2 as Authentication Method.

File > New > Calendar, select 'Google Calendar' >  click on 'Next' choose or enter: gmail email address   > click on 'Find Calendars' Select 'My Tasks' and click on 'Subscribe'

You may be asked to enter password as per Oauth2 Authentication.

See image. It shows the selection available when you follow instructions. It shows where 'My Tasks' is located in the Calendar list. I selected 'My Tasks' and then clicked on 'Task'. Create the Task and save. Task is shown in Thunderbird and on the right side you can see the Task is displayed via the webmail access using a browser.

Hello,

I have 3 different profiles and I'd like to have a visual indication of the currently active profile. I've found that using themes is the best option (a red theme for production, green for test, grey for default) but I can't prevent Firefox Sync to sync the active theme between my profiles.

I have set both services.sync.prefs.sync.extensions.activeThemeID and services.sync.prefs.sync.lightweightThemes to false and restarted all my Firefox profiles.

After a while, all windows/profiles are synced to the same theme.

Are those settings really read by Firefox Sync ? I'm on Windows 10, Firefox 91.10.0esr (32-bit)

Thanks in advance for your help !

However I cannot access my old profile and all my folders no longer show up. I have searched and found the folder that I think has all my folders but cannot bring them up in Thunderbird. How can I get these into the new profile? My wife's profile works fine.

I have read the tips etc, reset everything, but there is no difference.

This has been happening for a a couple of years, getting progressively worse, It has got so bad, I have stopped using FF on all but Solaris now. (and I have been using it for a long long time).

I need someone to direct me to what information/data is needed to be collected so someone can comment. Do you have any favourite page load test web sites that I can send out put to you from?
