Thunderbird Inserting Unnecessary Line Breaks

After an extraordinary amount of testing, I can conclude that Thunderbird is placing linebreaks inappropriately in emails sent from Thunderbird.

In other forum posts, I saw these described as "soft" line breaks that email clients could ignore, but in my testing, Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook/Office 365 all display these false line breaks (in both webmail and mobile apps). In fact, the only email clients that did not display these false line breaks were Outlook 2016 (Windows 10) and Thunderbird (Windows/macOS).

The issue is that Thunderbird is inserting these line breaks where the line changes in the view of the composer. This is an arbitrary line that really serves no obvious purpose, given the thousands of possible variations in screen sizes on mobile or desktop?

Toggling between sending in HTML or plain text seems to not have an impact in resolving this issue, and neither does switching between "Paragraph" or "Body Text" modes.

Example images are attached of how this looks.

Any hope for a resolution on this issue? (via Extension or correction by the developers?)

Not sure what happened or why, but almost all settings disappeared - logins, passwords, preferences for page size (+/-), etc. overnight after updating Win10.

I did not uninstall the update, which I think I will do after posting this.

How do I fix this?


I copied logins.json and key4.db from one day prior, - 2/6 - but the 2kb of data were not helpful.


I switched profiles on Friday (I think), after dealing with constant errors - a page is slowing down your browser, or a script is slowing down your browser. Firefox update was on Friday - 85.0.1. A damned mess, if you were to ASK ME.

I have an Excel spreadsheet of my logins/passwords, but am trying to find out it I can convert text to .JSON to add all data to lockwise file. Easier than one-at-a time...

The choices given in FF are to import from a file. Mine only offers *Import from another browser*. There appear to be online converting tools, but I am wary, because it is not widely offered as a solution on other reputable websites. I do not know all the reputable websites, of course.

Thank you.

Hi - I signed out of a different Firefox account and can't get back in, as the password I have isn't correct. If I change my password, I may lose my bookmarks, etc. I exported the bookmarks to html and also backed them up (json). If I change my password, will I be able to restore the bookmarks using one of those backups? I backed up "all bookmarks." Does that include the bookmarks toolbar and mobile bookmarks as well as the bookmarks menu and other bookmarks? Thank you in advance!

Hello.

I ran Bitdefender on my MacBook Pro {macOS High Sierra, 10.13.6} and it found "viruses" in my TB profile: "Gen: Heur. Mint.Titirez.1.2A", and the program can't move it to quarantine or disinfect. There's a "message 77" somewhere in there. Has anyone come across something like this before? It's a first for me. Seems like Anydesk is involved somehow. I've used the application a couple of times.

Thank you for your help!

Hi~ I had made numerous attempts to login to my Firefox account and subscribe to the Mozilla VPN, strangely after inputting my email and password correctly, it took me back to the prior "Try Mozilla VPN" landing page. I've been thrown into this loop with every attempt with no avail. I'm completely stumped as I've been able to to sign in the my regular Firefox account without any issues. I had also gone through the trouble of adding the Try Mozilla VPN (https://vpn.mozilla.org/) webpage to the exception list of Firefox's popup blocker, which didn't resolve the issue. Any helps from the community would be greatly appreciate it.

Automatically received the latest major firefox update on my Samsung galaxy tab s3. I don't know what Mozilla did to this release but I can't find any functions to do basic browser controls like going back to the previous page, going to the next page, or refreshing a page. I really love firefox but it's kind of unusable without these controls. I'm going to have to use chrome which I'd prefer not to do until this is fixed. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

When I watch videos online, there is this issue which makes the web player unusable sometimes. Let me explain it more. Firefox says switching the fullscreen and it's very buggy. Sometimes buttons on web player are not clickable and also video does not fit the screen everytime. I think it's because of Mi 9T's screen ratio. I want to disable this feature, is there a way to disable?

My dad did somethink with Avast antivirus(at least he said so) and after that we have no search engine available. If you try to type something in a serch bar you can only open direct links. Default search engine button in the settings does not respond and even following instructions on the site I can't add new search engines. Tried Google, YouTube and DuckDuckGo but to no avail. There is just no option to add new search engine.

P.S. Don't know how to reach russian-speaking support, so screenshots are in russian with some explanations on top.

Yahoo intruded and functions as default search, even though Google has been and is still designated as default in the settings. I removed Yahoo from the list of 1-click browsers, but that didn't affect its unwanted function as default search. This began out of the blue several days ago, and I have no idea how. I dislike Yahoo in general and have not been on that site. I'm getting really frustrated!
