After update to 79.0 version, (on Win 7), the cursor totally disappear, an so it's really unconfotable to identify what I'm doing... Now it's possible to identify the cursor position only selecting some caracter, using mouse or case key + arrow. I tried to find some question on the web, and founded to set something in the "about:config" system, but in my list, for example, don't appear the "ui.caretWidth" row. I saw this problem appeared in 2017 too. (It appear NOW, for me...) I don't think to be the last person to use win 7... Can someone helps me?

For a long time now, I've been using Firefox to save passwords. For a while now, I noticed that when I save passowrds for services like spotify to Firefox, Days later, I get a request for a password reset on my email, claiming they found suspicious activity. For about 3 months, I enabled Master Password on lockwise, and have had no problems so far, until I disabled master password last night. 2 of my account passwords had been reset for suspicious activity. What should I do to secure my accounts on firefox from being tampered with by a potential hacker somewhere?

Also the reason I disabled master password, is because the popups for a required master password happened way too often without me being on any login screen. It got quite annoying.

Early on 5th August my e-mails and folders were working normally. Later that day I opened my e-mail and found that my historic e-mails and folders had 'disappeared' ! My address book is working normally, however, if I use the search function and type in a name of someone who had sent me an e-mail prior to the 'disappearance', the list of e-mails that person had sent to me was listed. So,...the e-mails do not seem to have disappeared forever,...just hiding from me ! Would appreciate any advice on how to retrieve my e-mails and associated folders. Thank you !

Hi -- a Firefox problem has started recently and has since happened numerous times.

In this case, the PC was restarted from 'Sleep' mode. It does happen in other situations though. Out of sleep mode all apps have come up normally - except Firefox. It is still running, I can see it in task manager. I can see it on the taskbar, but I cannot switch to it, as I can the other apps. I can also see it on the alt+tab view; pls see attached screenshot prnscr.1.jpg, which shows the alt+tab view. Here you can see that Firefox displays in some minimized form, along with Firefox history and an Editplus document. However, Firefox is not accessible; I have to close Firefox from the taskbar and then reopen it. Otherwise, Firefox is working well.

Can you advise?

The motherboard of my previous PC died, and I don't have access to the M.2 C-drive. Fortunately all my old email folder were stored on a separate harddrive, and they are backed up. Folders have over 20 years worth of emails in them, I was using Eudora before Thunderbird. Using Windows 10/64 Pro

Just installed ThunderBird 78. Confugered all the options as before. (Old profile not available, but I had screen captures of the settings). Created a directory with the same name for email folders: F:\cvrdocs\Eudora\Local Folders.

Exact same setup as before. I have about 20 historical folders with old emails, backed up. I copied them into the new computer, above directory name. But whenever I start up ThunderBird, it wipes out all the old folders, and replace them with a set of new, empty folders, the normal Inbox, Sent, etc. It is driving me insane. I need to use my old folders!

I have set ThunderBird not to check emails at startup, not to check every 10 minutes, not to delete any messages. Still the same thing (old folders deleted) is happening time after time. Should I uninstall version 78 and go back to an old version? This is not a feature, it is a major annoyance.

Please help. How can I get ThunderBird to recognise the old folders and not wipe them?

Hi!

I recently switched the options listed below to bring some sanity to the way Firefox handles selections in the URL bar.

  • browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll - true
  • browser.urlbar.doubleClickSelectsAll - false

Shortly after, I noticed that this change messes up the primary selection of the X window system. Now every time I open a new tab the previous tab's URL is copied to the primary selection, therefore overriding the information already there.

This behavior was observed in both the Tor Browser and Firefox ESR.

Is there another option I should've set along with the other two or is this an actual bug and I should open a bug report instead?

Thanks
