Recently, when I start my Windows 10Pro desktop and I bring up Firefox or click on a URL in an Outlook mail (which starts Firefox), I notice I am logged out of Firefox and have to re-login into my account. I am currently using Firefox version 83.0. This behavior may have started a month or so ago(it is now Nov,29, 2020) before I really started to pay attention to this issue.

Of course during the last several months there have been Windows updates and Firefox updates, so it is difficult to pin this down to a specific set of circumstances.

Once I login into my account, I can close Firefox and re-open or re-start Firefox and I am logged in automatically, as I have always been before. Now when I power off the desktop and re-start the next day I am logged out of my Firefox account.

The only add-ons I have are Ghostery and Google translate.

Any idea what is going on here or what to check for? Thanks.

The update log says my Thunderbird updated to the newest update on 11/19, I updated my computer to Windows 10 on 11/23. The last time I received a new email on Thunderbird was 11/26. I've followed all troubleshooting suggested on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cannot-receive-messages#w_the-problem-suddenly-started-after-updating-to-thunderbird-version-78-try-this. I even restarted my computer after each troubleshooting option and nothing has helped. I am able to log into my mail directly on the servers site. I have a family member that also uses Thunderbird on Win 10 and uses the same email server, she is not having this problem.

Hello:

I recently upgraded to TB 78.0 on a Linux box and noticed that exporting my personal address book (PAB) to a vcf now relies on VCF v4.0 instead of the earlier version 2.1. The problem is I cannot import any vcf 4.0 file from my smart phone address book app. VCF version 2.1 is fine (tested) and I could not test v3.0.

I want to know if I can force TB 78.0 to export to VCF format using v2.1. or v3.0 as an intermediate step if that was available to me.

Thank you for any suggestion .

1: Sometimes when middle-clicking a link to open it in another tab, it will open the new tab with the address of the link I clicked, in the background, but not load it at all.

2: Sometimes when clicking a link (to open in the current tab), it does nothing at all, or selecting an option in a dropdown box won't refresh the page with the new information (for example, zandesk dropdown menus for bug reporting for a developer's game will select the item, but not reload the page with the now relevant boxes to fill out- happens everywhere, noticed it there).

3: Pages will stop loading before they've actually finished loading, like Firefox is cancelling the load because "it's taking too long". I have 400kbps, Firefox, I'm in no rush to STOP loading a page that I'm trying to load...

I closed firefox (all three windows), and when I reopened it, it opened the two background windows... but NOT the main window that had all my tabs and pages and projects. Thanks, Firefox.

I *could* go through my History, and see if I remember WHEN I accessed each tab, and TRY to rebuild it, but that is INSANELY ANNOYING and takes upwards an HOUR.

I'm using Ubuntu Linux v20.10 with Thunderbird 78.5.

If I click write or forward a message I have to pick Tools menu then Address Book or use the Ctrl+Shift+B to open the address book. When it opens I can select one or more email addresses, but there is no TO button, CC or BCC buttons to copy those addresses back into the email.

From the photos I've seen I would expect them to be at the bottom of the directory pane, but they aren't there.

I can pick multiple emails and click the write button to open a new message and the addresses are there. However I'm trying to forward a message to multiple people so I need to pull up address book, select them, then have them added to the forward message.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Chris

I have a new iPad Air. When I try to log in to Woolworths online using Firefox, my log in username and password details appear in the log in fields because I have saved them but text requesting username and password from the website are still there underneath. When I try to log in, the website thinks that I have not put my username and password in. If I delete the last character of both username and password and replace it with the same character, it works and I can log in. I do not have this problem with Firefox on my MacBook Air. How can this be fixed?

I had to update firefox to current version to pay a bill on a web site. I did it. I was recommended to sync another device during install, I did that too. I worked for a few hours on firefox just now, then it crashed. It reported data it had but now I have nothing. No history, no bookmarks, NOTHING. I logged in, my username and password worked find but it's like a fresh install, no data. Over 10 years of history, hundreds and hundreds of pages and passwords all gone. I synched to my phone as it insisted I install another device. Supposedly that was done but I have no idea how to use that or what it can do. They claimed it was a backup.

I'm at a total loss.
