I am no longer able to create new mail filters. If I have an email and use "Message | Create filter from message" I can set up the filter parameters, but the "Perform filter options" section, if I select "Move message to" or "Copy message to" the destination is greyed out with "no available folders". I have the same situation if I select "Tools | Message Filters" and try to create a new filter.

I've already deleted all my .msf files and let TB recreate them, but that didn't fix it.

Dear all, One of my email accounts no longer exists, but I would like to keep the emails that are saved in Thunderbird for future reference. How can I delete the account in Thunderbird, or at least stop Thunderbird from attempting to authenticate and load new emails, while saving old emails? Apologies if this question has already been asked, but I was unable to find any help on the subject.

Thank you!

I am using a new PC with Windows 11. I downloaded Thunderbird about 4 weeks ago, now the version is 102.5.1. I have no idea when it upgraded to this version. Everything was working fine in terms of being able to create filters for junk/spam emails until within the last few days. Now, suddenly I cannot create filters because the 'Message Rules' window does not have an 'Ok' button. Therefore I cannot add new filters because I cannot confirm the message rules. See attached screenshot. What happened and what can I do about it?

Video playback stutters in Firefox and Firefox Nightly but not in an external player (mpv) or Edge. Hardware acceleration on/off makes no difference. Using the latest Radeon driver 22.11.2. Most noticeable during slow pan like this https://youtube.com/clip/Ugkx7jP_XuVB7i-O6ljGHQ_NjPmEakzvD7yM

The video playback stuttering isn't new but I only stated looking into it now. No idea how long it's been like this. At first I thought it might be caused by running my monitors at true 120Hz and 60Hz instead of a fractional framerate but then the stuttering should be visible on other apps too. Switching to a fractional 60 didn't change anything in Firefox.

I much prefer Firefox to Chrome and others but whenever I use the google search function in the search bar, ALL the results seem to be USA-based. 100% useless for me, an English-speaking European living between France and England. What do I need to do to my Firefox browser to tell it once and for all that I am not American and nor am I interested in American content?!? TIA KB

More and more websites are alerting me that they are not fully compatible with Firefox and that I should instead use Chrome, Safari or Microsoft Edge. Recent examples are Allstate Insurance and Hewlett-Packard, not exactly insignificant players in the business world.

Here's what Allstate had across their page when I was attempting to log in:

"You may not be able to use certain My Account features on your current browser. For the best experience, consider using the latest versions of Chrome, Safari or Microsoft Edge."

There have been other websites with similar messaging about Firefox. The issue seems to be growing. Is there a fix coming from Firefox or are we going to continue to lose compatibility?

I will repost this every so often until I get SOMETHING to help with this,or I get banned from asking questions (If that's even possible). THIS IS GOING TO DRIVE ME INSANE. I have to adjust my volume when unpausing something because it's too quiet, but then I have to adjust it AGAIN because after it unfades, it's too loud. I KNOW THIS IS PROBABLY A FEATURE, but I don't care. I only have this problem with Firefox, so if there's no solution I'll probably switch back to Google Chrome. I JUST WANT TO KNOW HOW TO DISABLE THIS, I DON'T KNOW HOW TO USE about:config, AND IT'S NOT IN SETTINGS.

I am often frustrated to find that with some sites I can see the Save this login? prompt, and I click to save it, only to find later that the website name and password do get saved, but the username/account name is NOT saved.

I can see this saved login with a search by website name, and it will display this with the text "no username" in parentheses in the username field. And I can edit it to add the username manually, to make it more useful. This does not happen with all websites...

This has been true for a couple of years, so I don't know when I first saw this.

I see a few archived posts about this or similar problems but they are not too helpful. I prefer NOT to install add-ons to fix basic functions, or to download and run javascript to modify things that are not available as a user setting, to be lost when new versions come along.

Is this a Firefox bug?

Is there a way to correct this?
