I've had issues with the 68.2 release. Thunderbid does not open, I just get crash reporter. With versions 68.0 and 68.1, if I uninstalled it and reinstalled, Thunderbird would open. But with version 68.2, all I get is Crash Reporter. I updated Thunderbird on my laptop too and I'm having the same issue. So I now have no access to my emails. Something is terribly wrong.

Thunderbird crashes on launch (incl safe mode), always, except at the end of the installer. Related to Bitdefender

Windows 10 64bit OS. Fresh copy of 68.3.0 will run at the end of the installer process. When I run it subsequently (directly from the exe, from the shortcut, from the profile manager, whatever) it crashes during startup. Startup crash happens in safe mode, in normal, with or without a profile (I've done a scratch install to a new location, with same results). Two weeks ago it was working fine, so I suspect a version change killed me. By using profile renaming, I can (insert my old profile, then) read and check my email during that one-time launch at the end of the installer, and that's it.

After the update to 68.2.2, I started getting a crash when I start Thunderbird. I updated to 68.3.0 and didn't get a crash. Then, when I restarted Thunderbird, it crashed. I did a reinstall - then didn't get a crash. But everytime I terminated Thunderbird, I had to do a reinstall - and Thunderbird would start up okay. Then, more recently, even a reinstall would cause a crash. SAFE mode crashes. I even uninstalled and reinstalled and got a crash. I must comment - this is all using my original profile. A clean install without setting up any accounts works fine, so somehow it's connected to my profile. I have been limping along without Thunderbird for a few weeks (because I've been too busy to even complain) but now need to fix this problem. I can't get to any of my old emails stored in Thunderbird. This will happen anytime .. cold boot, restart, hibernation start .. anything. Multiple crash reports have been sent but no-one has contacted me. What suggestions does anyone have? I am running on Windows 10 with BitDefender security software.

I cannot export or backup bookmarks. When I try to, no file is created. I have refreshed Firefox, created a new profile and copied the sqlite file, and uninstalled/reinstalled. None of these actions solved the issue. Could there be a corrupt bookmark that is preventing these functions? Is there another way to export/backup?

I have set up Lockwise on my laptop and my phone to sync - which it does. To protect the logins and passwords it holds I set a Master Password. This works fine on the laptop asking for the master password if I want to look at the logins and paswords. On the phone all it requires is my 4 digit phone pin number and will then display all the passwords with no further security. This makes it useless as there is no serious security - if I lose my phone all my passwords go with it. There must be some way to make the master password work on my android phone???

Is there a preference to disable the expansion of the urlbar (aka address bar, awesome bar, mega bar) without disabling its new features? When expanded, it covers part of my bookmarks bar and makes it harder to click the bookmarks. Also I dislike the chunky UI look.

Things I've tried that did not solve my problem:

  • browser.urlbar.megabar: This is gone in 75.0.
  • browser.urlbar.update1: This disables the expansion, but also disables the new icons, suggestions, etc.
  • browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus: I don't know what this does but it wasn't it.
  • ui.prefersReducedMotion: This disables the animation, but the bar is still expanded.
  • Search with the Firefox address bar: There is no information there about the expansion.

I'm hoping there is a browser.urlbar.update1.expand or similar that I can toggle off. If there definitely isn't, please confirm so I can submit a bug.

Previous version of Firefox beta for Android I was able to go to the list of browser tabs, press and hold a tab to then drag the tab to change its position in the list of open tabs. This feature seems to have either disappeared (if so, a reason for me to delete Firefox Preview and switch to a new browser) or it's still possible but is completely unclear how to do it now.

System: Windows 10 32-bit laptop

Problem: non-responsive UI on one laptop only. This includes inability to configure local options. nothing works. Menus drop down, but no matter what is selected, the selection does not highlight, menu hides normally but no action is taken by the browser

If I manually type in the url it sits there. no spinning cursor, nothing.

Browser does NOT crash... It simply sits there doing nothing. All other browsers work fine.

What I have done Restart the laptop Double check Firewall permissions Ran a scan before and after installation (0 threats found) Logged in as administrator as well as user account Ran performance monitor nothing alarming noted Uninstall and Reinstall. (Problem still exists)
