I have cleared all my history in every way I can think off. Then I set Firefox to not remember anything. I really do intend for Firefox to not track and log my browsing habits. After these settings it appears to fix the "New Tab" screen (it now populates with generic icons) but if you dismiss one of the generic icons, Firefox will immediately populate the icons with my actual browsing history.

I use Thunderbird as a front end for one email account (Gmail). It was working until a couple days ago. Now I have several new emails in Gmail and Thunderbird will not get them. The Gmail account settings are correct, Thunderbird just does not seem to work. Possibly related to the 78.2.2 update?

I recently returned to my home computer after having been away from it for a few months.

When I pulled up Thunderbird; I found that all of my e-mails (including folders) are gone. I am wondering if the e-mail accounts may have become disconnected from the program.

Where can I go to see if the files are still there & how do I re-associate them with my account?

This seems to be an old problem but nobody else has reported this in Thunderbird 78.2.2 as far as I can see. Trying to do MailMerge, which I have used literally hundreds of times in earlier versions, I put {{Email}} (or whatever) in the To: field, and it says:

No recipients were specified. Please enter a recipient or newsgroup in the addressing area.

This is obviously nonsense - the whole point is that MailMerge INSERTS the email addresses. If this can't be fixed, Thunderbird will be useless to me.

Wasn't sure which topic to pick as none of them really describe my issue, but in the latest version of Firefox for Android, downloaded images don't show up in the image gallery app like they're supposed to for around 10 or 15 minutes, however it shows up just fine in the file manager app. Using the latest (not nightly or beta) version of Firefox for Android, on a OnePlus 8 with the latest version of OxygenOS (OnePlus's skinned version of Android) installed.

Thunderbird 68.11.0 Fedora 31 (last patched Sept. 17) Gnome

I received the yahoo messages about sign-in changes coming next month. I saw the long thread in the Mozilla support about this. I did as that thread suggested.

  • I logged in to the e-mail account via Thunderbird.
  • I changed the Security Settings Authentication method to OAuth2.
  • I closed Thunderbird.
  • I logged out of my Fedora user account.
  • I logged back in to my Fedora user account.
  • I launched Thunderbird.

When I tried to go into the e-mail account, a small browser-like window appeared with the e-mail address already filled in. I clicked "Next". Then I get the message "Please reload the page and try again or use anothe browser.". Neither clicking "Next" again nor putting the cursor at the end of the e-mail address and hitting "enter" helps.

How do I log in to my yahoo e-mail account?

- youtube mobile view (not the app) full screen is not loading correctly , its to the right and off screen using phone hand held and up and to the right on Dex App (pic shown).

- listening to streaming podcasts with andriod phone , stops streaming as phone goes into screen saver.

Ive never had these issues prior to newest update. Also no issues with my samsung internet browser which is slowly becoming my default and prefered app. This happens using both phone hand held or Dex App mode.

My Sync is set for Add-ons (which Themes is a part of), Bookmarks, Options, across (5) Windows 10 laptops and (1) Windows XP SP3 desktop. Everything syncs perfectly in all of the devices except Themes. There is one same theme for all of the devices. However, the theme in the Windows XP SP3 desktop CANNOT be changed because none of the currently available themes function in Firefox 52.9, the last version that works with Windows XP SP3. Is this preventing Themes from syncing in the Windows 10 devices? I presently change to one same theme manually in each of the Windows 10 devices, but I am looking for a workaround to make Themes sync in the Windows 10 devices.
