For some strange reason Firefox is not logging me into my favorite websites automatically any more. I have to manually log in every time. The websites' login pages are automatically filled when I move the cursor to the Username and Password fields, but I still have to click Log In. As soon as I log out and log in I am asked to "Sign In" again. I tried manually adding a website to the "Saved Logins" but that did not help. Using Windows 10 64bit.

"Shrink page to fit paper size" does not work printing .pdf files ("Letter" 8-1/2 x 11 paper, or any other size). In the document I am trying to print, only the upper 3/4 of page is printed on full paper page (remainder does not carry over to next page). Width is correct. Full page will print if 80% reduction is chosen, but reduction is not in same proportion as paper page. Windows 7. Firefox 82.0.2. Read numerous articles and posts. Nothing works. Printer is Brother HL-2270DW connected via USB. Using about:config > print :

    print.printer_HL-2270DW_USB.print_paper_data    The value is "1"  
    print.printer_HL-2270DW_USB.print_shrink_to_fit     The value is "true"  
    scaling is .8  (tired 1.0 without success)

All other "print" keys are as described in numerous Google items on this topic. Right now I can only save the document as a .pdf, and then open in in Adobe DC that is installed on same computer. Document prints correctly. This is a pain. I read in one Google post that starting with version around 55 Firefox no longer uses Adobe plug-in for pdf files, but switched to its own plug-in - it is clumsy, and as in this situation it does not work. PLEASE go back to using Adobe plug-in.

I keep a link to Firefox on my Windows 10 taskbar for easy access.

Periodically, the link icon changes to the icon for a different app on my computer, and the link no longer works - Windows asks me if I want to remove the broken link when I click on it. I remove the link, go to the Start menu and pin the Firefox link to the taskbar again. Then at some point - as soon as a few minutes later or as long as a few days later, it happens again. Sometimes it happens while I am using Firefox, but I don't know if this is always the case because sometimes I just notice it when I go to open it for the first time in a session.

This has persisted over many Firefox upgrades, and is extremely frustrating. No other app on the computer exhibits this behavior.

Any thoughts?

I'm ising Firefox on a Windows 10 machine. Lately any time I open a new window it insists on opening several dozen tabs from previous sessions. I cleaned the cache. No change. I rebooted. NO change. I uninstalled it using an installer (Revo) that supposedly checks for all kinds of leftover files. I then rebooted. I saw no signs of it on my machine. I downloaded a fresh copy and installed from scratch. When I open the initial page it's fine. As soon as I open a new page all the old things are back in a gazillion little tabs. It's kind of annoying. Not to mention the time it takes to close everything by hand.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Hello,

I have recently set up thunderbird 60 on Ubuntu desktop which is also having windows as the alternate boot(Dual boot - windows and linux). I am sharing the same account across the two OS and the mails already downloaded on one OS, is getting downloaded again on the other OS. That is, if I have downloaded one email on windows thunderbird, the same mail is getting downloaded again in ubuntu thunderbird again. Thus I see 2 emails for each message received.

I found my problem already raised by another user, which has been archived: [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1250898|here]

In my view, the problem in the above issue thread was not resolved; instead, the workaround of setting mails to be deleted on the POP server worked for him.

For me, I cannot delete the emails from the server and adopt the solution given in the thread. Thus I have to find why this is happening. I have second account configured which does not have this problem. There seems to be some issue with the folders etc, I have tried repairing folders, compacting them and even reconfiguring the account, but I have not been successful till now. It must be some some mistake I am making during configuration or something I am missing, I am not sure.

Thanks in advance!

I inadvertently created a duplicate of my Bookmarks Menu, the folder of which now resides at the bottom of my Bookmarks toolbar. I sometimes accidentally open it when the original is already open, and that creates confusion. I'd like to simply delete the duplicate folder -- is there any way to do that?

Please - can anyone tell how to backup only email account configuration: mail server settings (server address, port, protocol, etc), usernames, passwords, email account aliases, RSS accounts, etc. Would be good to include here Address Book but sometimes it would be good to be able to backup Address Book separately. Hopefully all email accounts would be possible to backup regardless of authentication type. I mean also email accounts using OAuth2 authentication. Also would be good to be able backup Thunderbird own settings separately. Sometimes is only email account settings important to backup, sometimes also Thunderbird settings, e.g. extensions separately. As usually there are IMAP-protocol used then emails are not needed to backup what most such extensions are offering like ImportExportTools NG. As you can read from https://support.mozilla.org/et/questions/1281340 - backuping whole profile (including emails) requires enormous amount of storage space. Sometimes is needed certainly also email backup itself. It would be very much appreciated if there could be an option to select manually every component that is included into backup and what is not. I've tried to find these files manually what to copy to backup these settings mentioned above but haven't succeeded to figure out which file is connected to which part of settings. Certainly I prefer free and open-source solutions. Certainly also restoring backupped settings flawlessly.

Using currently 64-bit Thunderbird 68.11 under GNU/Linux, manually downloaded as user from Thunderbird homepage. Usually tutorials handle all data (including emails) that are not needed and do not allow to distinguish only required part of data: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/moving-thunderbird-data-to-a-new-computer https://www.auralsolutions.com/2012/12/how-to-backup-thunderbird-data-emails-and-contacts/ https://github.com/thundernest/import-export-tools-ng https://www.iperiusbackup.net/en/backup-thunderbird-and-restore-email-and-account/ https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-thunderbird-stores-user-data#w_backing-up-a-profile http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_Manager http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_backup http://kb.mozillazine.org/Moving_your_profile_folder

Hello, My Thunderbird 32bit installation upon Microsoft 10 64bit installation just upgraded itself to 7.2.2 and produced a severe performance problem after initial startup. The response to attempts to navigate through the folders is very slow. The Microsoft Task Manager shows that Thunderbird is constantly busy 15-20% Cpu usage and flashes of 'Not responding' although the program has nothing to download.

There 4 accounts configured (3 imap and one pop3) and there are lots of folders with stored emails. There is one Lightening calendar configured.

The performance issue continues for about 10 minutes and then disappears so the system becomes as responsive as it was before the upgrade i.e. instantaneous.

I cannot tell you what release I was on before the upgrade. Any suggestions Patrick

I use TB for one POP3 and two IMAP accounts. IMAP works fine. I can send from my POP3 account but not receive. My ISP (Spectrum) insists the problem is with TB and Spectrum solution is switch to IMAP which I prefer not to do. This problem first occurred about a week or so ago, a few days after most recent upgrade to TB ver. 78.4.0. The problem self resolved overnight but now has re-occurred. Same problem did and does exist for my wife's TB account with Spectrum on her separate laptop. POP3 server port is 110. Windows 10 Home ver 2004, Build 19041.572.Error message when I "Get Mail" is "An error occurred with the POP3 mail server. Mail server pop-server.austin.rr.com responded:"; the error message my wife gets is "Connection to server pop-server.austin.rr.com timed out" The IMAP accounts are not with Spectrum.
