Recently, I had to change my username at my bank's website because somebody was trying a brute force attack on my password. Now, the site still shows my old username, although I've gone to my Saved Logons in Preference and removed all logons for that site except for the correct one. I have to delete the old username from the typing box every time I log in there, after which I can select the correct (and only) saved username/password.

Now, it TRANSFERS ME TO THE TAB I JUST OPENED and I have to "go back".

What changed with rel 87.0? How can I go back to "staying on my tab" I am on? I don't see any "options".

Good morning, please help & advise.

I only want to use the Primary Password when I want to open an excisting connection to a saved folder or site.

I hope I'm making sense.

Hello, Recently (last month) Googles login window covers the Thunderbird window when opening it and shows up even now and then. The window is so huge that the closing symbol in the right upper corner is not to be found. To get rid of the window you have to use keyboard command. I now updated Thunderbird but saw that the problem is still there. This problem did not occur earlier. It is also very difficult to report a problem in Mozilla. I found the Bugzilla page but there was no search or nowhere to actually make a simple contact about a problem. I found a long list of categories and lists of issues. None has the time to go through long lists just to find that your issue is not there. If Mozilla wants us to continue using their products and make donations I think that to easily find a simple way to report a problem in your own words are essential. Frustrations will not stimulate donations : ) Sorry in case it all depends on my own inadequacy in finding such necessary features, easily. /Gechen

The support page says the following to Pin a site in Firefox for Fire TV:

Pin a site

To add links to sites to your home screen, follow these steps:

   Enter the site you want to pin in the Firefox search bar.
   Click the pin icon for at the top of the page. 

I can enter the IP address Firefox search bar. I then use Previous to close the dialog box (if I hit Next it takes me to the site). However, it won't let me navigate to the pin icon to select it. It is greyed out.

I'm using a Fire TV Stick 4K.

Am I doing something wrong? Is there another way to Pin sites to Firefox for Android TV?

I just finished reading other people complaining about the popu to "purge deleted items"

I concur! in fact I find this so disgusting I am considering leaving thunderbird as a email client.

I reallly love that linux, mac, and windows ...no matter the OS I can get a same client, similiar experience (I use different laptops when as a tech repairing servers, to machines.

I have even myself had data lost, personal communications with family who died, things I quite cared about and (yes I have backups) but this push to make the client work better by limiting data, imposing order, and cleanliness is moronic..dangerous, and I do see that the quotas and options for data do not really work, this merely seems to help performance and keep most recent email but absolutely ruins any real longterm archiving (email is not meant to be longterm, or a "archive" ...I know I say this too) maybe we need to adjust software for the way people want it? the way people live? and not how we designate it to be used? (you do not like ,,write your own, I know).. if this trend to increase performance by cutting and crippling old email (what if I want 40 gig of email ?) .. maybe a better interface for holding, packaging and backing up, and restoring email?? heck a schedular to bump it out to google drive? I recently found a proggie that does this for my cellphone, contacts, sms, options, apps, which apps,,, gotta say that in thunderbird would be amazing? (restore from cloud backup, backup to cloud)?? I love thunderbird and hope some development can happen to smooth this out? Thankyou! (I used to try and use the gmail and yahoo folders like this also and leave only copies ,,,)

As a new Thunderbird user (and old outlook user), I tried to tidy my gmail folders up.

Basically I dragged my important gmail folders to the default Inbox above the italic (Gmail). All worked fine until the next time I opened Thunderbird when I found the the folders that I had moved were gone/

I have looked in the imap folder on my C drive and they are not there either. To add to this they are no longer in Gmail. Seems that the are lost forever? 

However if I do a search within Thunderbird, the folder name appears on the left hand side with an email count that seems to reflect what's in the folder.

There are some important emails for me and I would like to recover them.

Is this possible and how ?

Appreciate any help

Firefox for Mobile needs to sync Collections too.

My wife typically trusts me to make the tech decisions in my household, and is fine with using and supporting Mozilla and Firefox. Overall, she likes the new Mobile Firefox too, as do I.

She's a typical Tab Hoarder kind of user. On her last phone, I introduced her to Collections. Much easier to use and get to than Bookmarks, easy to understand, good at helping her control the immense amount of tabs she otherwise has open. She basically fell in love with the feature.

A few days ago she got a new phone. We still have her old one, but the screen is 1/3 cracks and it no longer holds a charge well. "Well loved", for sure.

Install Firefox on new phone --> sync over her stuff --> all good... Well, wait... Where are her collections with her hundred-or-more tabs in them for various stuff?

Turns out they don't sync?

I've been helping her manually move over the tabs from the collections on her old phone to the new phone, but I feel *extremely* lucky we still have the phone. If she'd lost her phone instead, that would be quite the amount of time she'd spent getting acquainted with and using this feature just to find it doesn't save anywhere.

This was all essentially written as a real-life use-case, for the following plea:

Please, *please* add Collections to what is able to be synced with the Firefox Sync feature.

To find my purchase I need to enter my email address and 1 of 3 other items of information: Last 4 digits of CC; Order ID Nr; or Password. I am able to enter my email address but the text boxes for the other 3 do not appear. This only happens when I use Firefox as it is my preferred browser. I am able to enter the information in the form using Chrome. A search of possible fixes suggested disabling "hardware acceleration". I tried that and it did not work. Today was the first time I tried to access this information although I have had the account for 1 year so I do not know if Firefox ever was able to access it. I am using Firefox V 87.0 (64 Bit) and Windows 10. Here are two screen shots: #1 is the form using Firefox. #2 is the form using Chrome.

I know this is going to push the boundaries on the "stupid question" meter, but I've looked everywhere I know to look. I have a website that I completely trust (inasmuch as one can), and they've recently made some changes to their site that requires the site to reload for an animation. The problem is that FF interrupts with the banner (see image) about reloading and my only l option is the "Allow" or "Dismiss". One requires me to just keep pressing the "Allow" button, while the other stops me from seeing the reload. Is there a way I can stop this?

Thanks in advance, Dan
