If I open a normal firefox window then run "firefox.exe -private-window mozilla.org google.com" it will open mozilla.org in a new private browser window and google.com in the existing standard browsing window. I have tried every combination of -private, -private-window, and -url that I can think of, but to no success.

I am happy to write a fix for this if you can confirm the defect and provide a bug number :)

We appreciate and enjoy the settings continuity within Mozilla Firefox, allowing us to operate across multiple devices with same passwords etc.

Why can't we get that same functionality with THUNDERBIRD? Traveling away from the office with Thunderbird on my tablet I lose access to emails stored in folders in my main PC. I have tried the migrating process before and after trips abroad but it never collects ALL my emails. Most recently, the migrating method picked up setting, folders and emails up to 2021 - but nothing more recent. Consequently, I had to travel without a proper record.

The 'migration' process is clumsy and unreliable.

Why can't we open a THUNDERBIRD account on any device and find all our work, settings and history as we do with Mozilla Firefox?

Tired of the bullying tactics of Microsoft forcing me to accept Microsoft Edge when all I want is Google Chrome, so I'm thinking of making Mozilla my default browser, but I'm concerned about whether Mozilla will tranfer all my info. I sell the occasional bits on Etsy and Ebay. I had found the perfect tool to edit my photos on Chrome. Now this has gone haywire because I am forced into using Edge, which does not give me anything like the editing choices I have on Chrome. I have followed all the directions given by Microsoft to get off Edge and back into Chrome but they have all failed miserably, so I am trapped in Edge and all my efforts are turning into Groundhog Day ! Also if I return to Firefox, what will happen to all my photos, and the folders they are kept in ? As an 86 year old, I need clear, concise directions on how I can restore everything I need to be able to return to a browser I was completely comfortable with. Please advise.

I've received an email about the change from Firefox account to Mozilla account. But it came to an email address that I removed from my Firefox account months ago, and not to either the primary or the secondary email addresses that are on the account now. How come?

Using 115.3.3, I am able to adjust the width of other columns with the cursor, but it will not change to the "double bar" in the date column. The only way that I can adjust is by dragging other columns and thus affecting others. Am I missing something, or is this a possible bug that needs to be addressed in a future version? I am pretty sure that I've experienced this problem in earlier versions as well, because I've always struggled with getting the columns to my liking.

Can not write to e-mail box, cannot filter to folder

I have been getting seemingly random failures to download e-mail from gmail.com I am currently running 115.3.3 64bit, but the problem started with a previous 32 bit version.

Other research suggested that the 32bit versions had a hardcoded limit of 4gigabytes per account, and that the 64bit version had no such limit. The account in question takes up approximately 1.64gbytes, with the two largest folders at 249mbytes and 216mbytes.

It was also suggested that Local Folders was not subject to the 4gbyte limit. I moved a few of the largest folders to Local Folders; that was no help with the cannot write mailbox problem, cannot filter to folder problem and the cannot move messages to folder problem.

I compact folders regularly, the problems return.

NTFS version 3.1 OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor Version 10.0.19045 Build 19045 Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 8.00 GB Total Physical Memory 7.74 GB Available Physical Memory 1.95 GB Total Virtual Memory 10.7 GB Available Virtual Memory 2.83 GB Page File Space 2.98 GB

Incidently, I have a Windows7 system that recently upgraded itself to Thunderbird 115. I have not experienced these sorts of problems there (yet)

Thanks for any help that can be given.
