I bought a new laptop because the old one died. Now I tried to transfer my TB data into the new computer. I managed to do it BUT... only one of my two MAIN folder data is there.

Last time I needed to do that when my laptop died it worked. Now despite me using the EXACT profile path/name (eg, C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\XXX) in TB's local directory at my new computer only one MAIN folder's data is present.

Does anyone know how to solve this issue?

Thank you!

After that my recommended by pocket disappeared. I opted out of disabling all cookies, but it hasn't reappeared. I checked about:config and the setting for recommendations is true. Please help!

I don't like the "view panel" in Thunderbird so I always work with it turned off. However, if I restart TB 91.10.0 (32-bit) for any reason the panel always comes back (Win 10 Home) and I have to turn it off again. It never used to do this; instead TB remembered my preference. What am I doing wrong please?

I have changed from Ubuntu to MX Linux recently and have kept my Thunderbird profile data.

On MX TB 78 is installed.

When I copy the Ubuntu TB profile folder to my new MX install and start Thunderbird I get a message saying that "You have launched an older version of Thunderbird" (which is not the case, I launched versions 78) and that I can either create a new profile or quit the program..... Not very useful.

How can I use/import the data from my previous (Ubuntu) install? It seems likely that I had version 78 on Ubuntu as well, my system was up-to-date, but of course I can't check that anymore.

Thanks

For some reason, whenever I load a pdf from within Firefox, I get a new tab with the regular toolbar displayed on top of pdf files, but the document itself is completely blank (see attached screenshot). This issue just started today and I assume it was a result of an update, since I don't recall making any changes to my settings (I'm using Firefox 101.0.1 on Ubuntu 20.04).

I've tried opening multiple files from a variety of sites with the same result. All of them open fine using my system's pdf viewer, as well as from within Chromium. I've tried disabling my plugins, putting Firefox into safe mode and resetting all the handlers, to no avail. Any help would be much appreciated.

I have a local folder that has about 950 emails in it and is about 9MB in size. Today, when I choose an email in this folder to view, it just says Loading... at the top and then there is a blank screen below. I have tried Repair Folder. I have tried creating a new folder and moving emails over to it to view them. Same problem happens in the new folder.

The odd thing is... if I choose to view the email in a new tab or in a new window... it displays fine.

Any ideas what I can do to fix this?

Thanks for your assistance

I do not and will not manually close my browser session every time I want to shut down my computer in order to get it to do what it's supposed to. Linux sends SIGTERM to all running processes on shutdown. Firefox isn't handling this correctly, obviously, because if it was, then my settings would be getting respected. SIGTERM is the standard signal sent to windows that need to close gracefully and are expected to still be functional.

NOTE: Do not provide windows-specific support to this thread. I am not running firefox on windows, and I do not possess a windows computer or license.

I have used Thunderbird for years, I think I may be forced to change! I have lost IMAP login Gmail, from Thunderbird, since the last update download (last email on Thunderbird is 6th or 7th June 2022 Thunderbird constantly says it cannot log in to GMail IMAP, requests to try again or get new password (for which it requires the password it will not recognise) Still using Gmail on my phone, have had to launch Chrome to use Gmail on my (old) iMac [running 10.13.6, High Sierra - can't update further], so I know the password is still valid. It is Thunderbird which seems to be the problem, here. Have read through various Problems/questions similar, but have not found a solution that helps

I had a similar problem with an update of Firefox, in that I was unable to use the browser - in the end I had to delete the browser, and several weeks later, re-downloaded. (This meant that I lost all my bookmarks etc, and had to re-establish passwords, but I'm now back to Firefox)

I've just had my browsing interrupted with this recommendation to install an extension: https://torrent-protection.com/download-now/

I was viewing this page: https://www.eurogamer.net/with-the-new-ps-plus-premium-and-extra-sony-opts-for-the-car-boot-sale-approach-to-catalogue-gaming

I was taken out of the page without pressing anything and taken to this recommendation. In particular, it appears like an official Firefox message and security recommendation, with Firefox suggesting I should install this extension for my security. Sadly I don't have a screenshot but it's happened twice this morning already.

Is this really Firefox endorsed? Or are they pushing their extension with fake credentials? How is the page viewing interrupted this way and diverted automatically to another webpage?

Hello,

I have been asked to upgrade our Firefox ESR in our VDI from 32bit to 64bit. We are using Window server 2012R2.

When I uninstall 32bit and install 64bit I dont get any errors and the program runs, but if I try to go to any website I dont get any page or error message. If I do a search in the URL Bar it does give you the end URL for the search engine, but we dont see anything. I have uninstalled the program, removed AppDATA folders, ProgramDATA and Reg keys related to Mozilla, but still get the same result. If I use another user account I get the same issues.

Could some recommend a fix ?

I am using Mozilla Thunderbird as my email client. I have two different email addresses that I am using. Is there a way so that when I <click> reply or <click> write from either account that the email address would contain in the From field the address of just one account?

Example: First email account address JB@home.com Second email account address J_B@gmail.com

So if I click reply to an email that has been sent to the address JB@home.com and I click on the reply to this email so that in the From field it would put J_B@gmail.com.

Is this possible? thanks for you help

I'm on an iMac running mac OS Catalina (version 10.15.5). Using Firefox (78.0.2) the Centriq login page (https://app.mycentriq.com/) has stopped loading recently. Firefox has been updated since I last logged in successfully. The login page does properly load using Safari web browser. So, I believe something has changed with the recent Firefox update that is preventing the Centriq login page to load. The one thing I have tried, but did not work, is to turn off Enhanced Tracking Protection for the login page. All help is appreciated. Thank you.
