Have newest version of TB. But the problem has existed for several months.

When I click on the Task tab, it will only display today's tasks, not any future tasks, even when I click on a future date on the calendar. It always used to display future tasks for the last several versions of TB. On a rare occasion it works, but most of the time it doesn't. No rhyme or reason as to why it doesn't work.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanx in advance.

when forwarding an html-formatted msg, i usually prefer to convert to Plain so i have the Send Options set to 'send as plaintext when possible' and, on rare occasions when i want it to go in HTML i use Shift-(click on ForwardButton) to override the plaintext conversion. lately this has resulted in a message that displays as obviously html, as desired, but when i hit Send and then go look in Sent folder to see result, it is in plaintext and recipient reports that it came out Plaintext. further, sometimes pursuant to no observable provocation, when i hit Send i get error message: <Sending of the message failed. Unable to open the temporary file C:\Users\SIDCOW~1\AppData\Local\Temp\nsmail.tmp. Check your 'Temporary Directory' setting.>

however, sometimes, and sometimes not, when i click Send again, the message sends without further backtalk, but again arrives in Plaintext. the SIDCOW reference in the filename presumably refers to a folder i have unwittingly established in Users when i gave myself the fanciful name SidCowznofski at the time i originally set up this computer. i have searched using File Explorer and cannot find a file in Users which contains the text string SIDCOWZNOFSKI1 or SidCowznofski1 in its name. (many subfolders labeled with a version of SidCowznofski, but none having the <1> after S...nofski) maybe i am not using the Search function correctly? i am new to this. oddly, when i right-click my account name at top of (folder pane?) then settings>composition & addressing and check 'compose messages in html format', then try to forward an html message in html format by Shift-clicking Forward, the draft forwarded message immediately displays in Plaintext. it doesn't seem to make any difference whether i have the addressee in my address book set to <prefers to receive messages in html format> or <prefers to receive messages in plaintext format>. i am accustomed to getting the alert when sending html to the latter, which asks me to choose the format for this particular message. even temporarily changing the addressee's setting in the address book, to html, does not seem to ameliorate this problem. i can click the Menu icon at upper right of display, Options>Composition>forward messages as attachment, and then forwarding the html message apparently yields the attached msg in html at the recipient end, but i don't really want to forward ALL my messages as attachments by default, and it's kind of fiddly to go back and forth into the menu>options>composition thing every time i want to just forward the occasional msg in its original html format. is there any way around this? i doubt if it matters but i just noticed when looking up the TB version in my files that it's the 32-bit and i think this machine is 64. not sure how that happened. TIA for taking the time to read this.

I updated to Thunderbird 78.10.0 and inserted my profile file into the appropriate folder. Thunderbird found all of the mailboxes, but I can only manage access to two out of six. Four of them don't have any subfolders, and have no features available to me. When I click on the mailbox name, it will not expand, so it appears to have no contents even though all of the settings seem to have transferred okay. I'd like to get the new version all squared away, but am having trouble figuring it out.

When my Thunderbird (78.10.1 - 64 bit / Windows 10) is in the online mode the CPU usage for the TB process gets very high and TB hangs (not responding). When starting in online mode it connects to email servers and download some emails but very quickly hangs.

I have only few seconds after starting the program to change it to offline mode - then nothing bad happens and all functionalities (e.g. searching emails) work properly (similarly when starting TB in offline mode from the beginning).

I tried restarting Windows, reinstalling Thunderbird (installing on existing version and in other step uninstalling and installing TB again), deleting msf files in profile folder (they where recreated but it didn't help), setting all accounts not to download emails from servers on start (doesn't help, after few seconds cpu goes crazy), running TB in safe mode and running Windows and TB in safe modes (with addons shut down), uninstalling Avast.

Hello, I'm trying to add a secondary email address to my Firefox account but each time I try I get the following message: "Secondary email must be different than your account email" I'm not typing the same main email address, I'm actually trying to type another one. The only possible reason that comes to my mind is that the address I want to add is already used as a secondary address for another Firefox account (namely, the one I use at work). I don't know if it makes sense, but it's the only possible situation this address is to be already found. Any ideas why this happens and how to fix it? Thanks in advance.

# Ubuntu garbage data increases exponentially
## Intro and context

Hello. I am a power user that works in software and web development. I have been using Firefox on and on for most my life, but full time as my main browser since late 2018. One thing I love Firefox for is its lightness on memory compared to that of Google Chrome, and also its open web standards, open source, privacy, ethical owners, and customizations. I have been using Windows 10 up until July 9th 2020 before I switched to my first main Linux desktop. I have always kept my eye on CPU and RAM usage, as high CPU drains battery and running out of RAM results in a system crash. I actively keep many tabs open (less than 100 but more than 60) I ensure that they are light. I mostly have GitHub tabs open, but I keep a few other things open as well, mostly Wikipedia/wiktionary and duckduckgo tabs, a pcloud (file service) tab, but sometimes a youtube tab or two (rarely a reddit tab)

## Issue

I have been noting that garbage collection is getting exponentially worse over time. When I got my laptop, I was able to keep 2-3 fully packed profiles open at all times, and never having to close Firefox until shutdown (after about 12-16 hours uptime) I rely heavily on Firefox profiles for organization. It has been getting exponentially worse. Starting in late 2020, I had to reduce the max number of open profiles to 2, and in 2021. In early January, I had to start closing the profiles once a day to free up 2-3+ GiB of RAM (swap doesn't change much, that is the garbage data that isn't being cleared, it normally ends up at 800 MiB to 1.7 GiB by the end of the day) and now (as of January 22nd 2021) I have to close Firefox 2-3 times a day to prevent my system from getting overloaded, as Firefox eats through 1-2 gigabytes of RAM per hour, even when idle. I have noticed several processes titled `web content` that use 200-600 MiB each (there is usually 2-7 of them) I am wondering what I can do for Firefox to prevent high RAM usage. For reference, here is my main profile in idle mode:

Mozilla is refusing to let me upload images right now, so I will link them

Here is my usual 2nd profile in idle mode:

And here it is with Firefox and Nautilus closed (I forgot about nautilus before getting the first 2 pics, it uses a lot of memory depending on its usage):

I have lately suspected that GitHub may have gotten heavier, or is sending too much data via AJAX methods, but I am not entirely sure.

Windowing system: `X Desktop environment 11`

Memory: `7.4 GiB (8 GB)`

SWAP file: `2.0 GiB`

Firefox version: `84.0.1` - I haven't updated in a while due to fear of memory increase and instability

Number of Firefox profiles: `61` - no new profiles created since December 26th 2020

I am wondering what I should do about this. I work with hundreds of projects, so I can't close too many tabs, as it becomes hard to access and manage. I intend to close 16 tabs in the next month, as I am freeing up some projects.

I recently noticed that if I am downloading or opening a file, if I do not click open or save fast enough it will Firefox will close the tab or window from which I am trying to download.

This seems to have started with version 88, but I am not sure.

The close can happen after just a few seconds to possibly over a minute.

To replicate I need to click on file link and when the dialog box come up to open or save, I just leave the dialog without making a selection and then the tab or window closes leaving the ope dialog box.

Can anybody tell me what this is called or how to stop this behavior?
