No purple bar with Accept button in meeting invitation email

Hi,

I recently installed a CalDAV server at my workplace to connect to in the Thunderbird calendar, as we all already use Thunderbird for e-mail.

If I create a meeting in the calendar and invite everyone else, they all get an email invite with the name, time & place of meeting etc.. And at the top of the email, just below the title of the email, there is a purple bar with boxes saying "Accept", "Tentative", "Deny" and "More" (or something synonymous, I have it in Swedish).

For one employee that purple bar with the "Accept"-box does not appear, and the only way for him to get the meeting to his calendar is by downloading the "invite.ics" file that is attached and importing it afterwards.

I have added two screenshots showing what I mean. One with the Accept, Deny etc. and the one person's e-mail that doesn't have the boxes.


We have checked his settings without finding anything that seems wrong in first glance. I have checked the caldav user account but the user account has the same settings as the others. Thunderbird is updated to the latest version (115.7.0, same as I use and it works for me).

When he invites people to a meeting they all get the invite correctly, so nothing is wrong when he creates a meeting invitation, only when he recieves an invite.

What could be wrong? Is there a setting he might've activated/deactivated in Thunderbird that we missed when looking or could there be something else we have thought of?

Thanks, Tim

Twice withing the past 4/5 days I have (purely by chance) noticed an email - for which I had been waiting - on the list of five messages. (bottom right corner) waiting to be added to my inbox. When I went to read the messages only four new ones were there - the one I was waiting for, seen on the 'about to be downloaded' list - was missing. My wife informed me that she had experience a similar problem, eventually solved by locating the email furthe back in history, now attached to another email, and identified by some unexplained arrows. I went in search of similar arrows and found my missing email now attached to an earlier title.

What on earth is the purpose of this? If I hadn't spotted the email as I did and as it didn't appear as a recent addition in the inbox, I could not have known it had been sent to me. After the glimpse l'd had of if I emailed the sender to check that he'd sent it. He was puzzled as to why I hadn't replied.

I'm a long way from being an expert - scarcely competent in fact - in computing matters, but I am capable of filing my own mail. Please can Thunderbird leave it to me in future?

I've tried a few addons that download website images but the website I go to has thumbnails that are linked to larger jpg's and addons I've used won't download the linked jpg's. I used "Download all images" addon which has a "Deep Search Option" and filters for downloading linked images but I can't get it to work. I couldn't figure out how to use the filters. I read about another addon called "download-links" that can search linked images and I might give it a try. Any suggestions? Has anyone tried "Download all images" addon?

Hello,

I use Firefox stable on both my Mac and my Win 11 PC. On the mac i use the developer edition. The issue I have started about 2-3 weeks ago. Most of the time, playing youtube 4k videos just either freezes and doesn't buffer, or just skips and reloads. It is not a network issue. I've tried playing back the same video with ARC on OSX (which is based on chromium) and with Chome on windows. It works flawlessly so it's not a network issue. I've tried disabling adblocker, all the extensions, nothing. It's either Youtube messing with non google products again or a problem with Firefox itself. I even have Youtube premium and this stuff still happens without adblockers.

Any help would be appreciated.

Firefox is frequently deleting entries made on websites. I am entering information in boxes (like this one) on websites when suddenly FF bails out, the data vanishes off the screen and leaves me back where I started. It happened several times attempting to post this question. This seems to have something to do with hitting a key or the space bar--but what and why eludes me. I have tried changing settings on trackpad and mouse without any impact. Although this is a recent issue with a new computer, the issue does not occur using the same computer on Chrome. Any ideas?

In addition to what's in the Subject field, I can "bring back" the hidden emails sooner by clicking another folder, then click back on the folder whose emails disappear (awaiting thermometer). This happens for more than one e-ddress, and also happens when I have a tab open to a given email and press Del.

This doesn't ALWAYS happen, but enough that it's annoying. Anyone else experience this?

I'm having the same problem as this guy.

I have a large number of open tabs in Firefox on my iPhone, a mixture of old and very old. I've been trying to go through the tabs and deal with them -- in some sense they are all todo items that I left open at least semi-deliberately.

If I tap on a thumbnail to load a tab, Firefox instead loads a blank page. If I tap the address bar after that, Firefox loads the new tab page, not the site corresponding to the tab that I selected. If I tap and hold a tab's thumbnail, Firefox crashes.

It was the case temporarily (possibly a bug) that some of these tabs would place a TLS failure icon in the left of the address bar when selected, while the blank page was displayed. Tapping on that would display the tab title, but not the tab URL. No longer is that TLS failure icon ever visible.
