At least once per day, I try to send a email with Thunderbird and I get an error message:

I get this message each time I try to send an email again after the initial error. Then, at other times during the day, I can send emails with no problem.

I recently updated to IOS 15.1. Now video playback from streaming sites doesn't work in Firefox Focus. This is not an isolated issue. It appears that other browsers aside from Safari are affected as well. So doubtless Apple has deprecated something which everyone else is using. I'm using Firefox Focus 39.0 (8631) IOS 15.1 Iphone 8 plus 128GB Same issue with Chrome. Was some issue with Safari at first but was able to disable GPU rendering of video. Then video streaming worked. There doesn't seem to be a corresponding setting in Focus. Apps like Youtube, Twitter and Instagram seem to be unaffected. However those have updated recently.

I installed Firefox on a new device and initiated a sync for multi-account containers - it promptly synced in the wrong direction. It eliminated all customization from what should have been the source (the existing device), overwriting it with the default settings of a first-time installation. I was quite surprised.

This leads me to a couple of questions.

1. Is there a sync version history or any way of rolling back a sync? 2. Is there a way to explicitly choose the sync direction?

Quite honestly it is very confusing that there is no reference whatsoever to which way an initial sync will go. I was hesitant to risk this, decided to trust it knew what to do (even though it didn't give me any indication that it did) and lost my gamble.

Firefox knows the device names, so can I suggest some basic reassuring UX be inserted into this process with something like "Initiate sync from X-DEVICE-FIREFOX to Y-DEVICE-FIREFOX?". A bit of clarity would be helpful here, as well as a way to roll back a syncing mistake instead of just having to gamble possibly losing hard-won customization with no going back.

Or have I completely stumbled past some obvious place where everything I'm requesting exists and is accessible already?

Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

How I could disable the single message search (message open, press ctrl+F) from automatically going back to the top of message while searching a phrase from within single e-mail message?

Why I cannot get alert pop-up saying: "You reached the end of the message. Do you want to continue from top" and Thunderbird insisting on me selecting "yes" or "no"?

In other words, what advantage I or Mozilla gets from me missing the pale gray text "Reached end of page, continued from top" on white background while I'm trying to find the search phrase in certain context on my mail message?

Hi guys,

Back in 2018 when I started using Thunderbird I check in for an option to save all emails - sent and received on my computer hard dick. Now I'm out of space and I want to delete those and opt out of that setting.

My questions are two: 1. How do I opt out form the setting? 2. If I do opt out, I'm still going to have the emails sent and received on my email right, they are not going to go away forever? I presume you should be keeping them on cloud or something?

Please let me know. Regards Yosif

I'll explain by means of an example.

When I send a message, both Thunderbird and my email service allows me to alter the 'from' address. I place an underscore character after my id and some chosen text.

So, I send FredCo an email message from this address: [my id]_fredco@[my domain].co.uk .

FredCo replies to the same address (and possibly stores email address).

My email delivery service recognises the address format and delivers FredCo's message to me. Because of the address format, I can see that the message is from FredCo.

(If I receive a message with that address from someone else, I know that FredCo has released my email address.)

Now when I reply to FredCo's message, the 'from' address defaults to my basic id, [my id]. And that's the problem.

I want it to default to [my id]_fredco because if I forget to change it, FredCo will record a new address, and I won't be able to detect whether FredCo has passed that email address to some other organisation.

OK, I could set up a new id for use with FredCo, but I would need dozens of similar ones - one for each person or company I contact.

Is there a solution to this problem or an add-on that will achieve this?

I wonder if this was due to hardware or software error? I recently renewed some computer parts.
