Hello, since the last Thunderbird update to 78.x.x, I have issues following hyperlinks containing button tag.

<a href="https://google.com">REGULAR LINK<a> "working as intended" i.e. opens https://google.com URL in web browser:

<a href="https://google.com"><button>BUTTON LINK</button><a> This version first downloads .html file at https://google.com to temp, then runs "open file as" dialogue. Selecting web browser then, of course, opens file at file:///tmp/____.html URL.

Am I misusing the <button> tag? I don't want to immediatelly blame the last Thunderbird update but both cases functioned as typical link in previous versions.

Thank you, Tomáš

I've had a website for about 20 years and I have several email addresses based on that domain name. I recently switched web hosts, so I moved all of my emails into Local Folders. When I was set up with the new webhost, I attempted to move them from Local Folders back onto the mail server so that I would have access them to from other devices. Thunderbird crashed while I was transferring hundreds of emails. When I restored Thunderbird, I learned that all of my emails from the last 13 months were missing. Losing these emails wasn't an option, so I had to pay my webhost to recover my emails from a backup. Unfortunately, the backup was a month old, so I lost all of my emails from October 2020.

Needing to respond to a customer, I searched for the message thread and found it. When I click on any of the emails, I just get a blank page. Ah yes, they're all from October 2020. Doing some research, I understand that these are the remnants of those messages from the index. I could repair the Global index so that I no longer get search results for emails that no longer exist. But that's the last thing that I would want to do! Right now I can see the subject line, to, from, the date, and the first few sentences from each email -- in some cases, the entire email. How is that not enough information to recover the emails into my inbox? A truncated email is better than nothing at all and, as I say, in some cases I can see the entire email. "Repair Folder" changes nothing, and the Recover Deleted Messages extension doesn't work in Thunderbird 60+. Hasn't Mozilla, or some third party, created an extension to recover emails from the index?

A recent Firefox update resulted in failure to bring up the Windows Live Mail New Mail Window when the Mail Icon is clicked in Windows 7. I looked in Options and see that WLM is the preferred mail app. How can this be fixed ?

Hi, realise this is not probably a Firefox issue,but would appreciate any advice. Of late when i select "Copy" a photo sent to me via email ,it only copies as a thumbnail not the actual photo, it used to to copy ok but not now for some reason. My workaround is to select "Copy image as" which then opens up a droplist from MyPC,give it a name and it copies ok,but its a bit long winded .

Hi, FF Community,

It seems that almost every time I change to another screen, I get the "FF is not your current browser, would you like to make FF your ...."

I suspect that Microsoft Edge s the culprit, but but what ever I try to remove Edge from my computer, nothing works.

Does anyone have a fix for this maddening problem?

Please note, that I am not a computer whiz, so esoteric terminology leaves me scratching my head with a hind foot.

I have triple checked my computer for a virus, and it is clean.

Thank you, Nick M.

Menus do not appear, or are not clickable. tick boxes cannot be ticked, graphics are broken, logos do not appear correctly. I deleted and re-installed. restarted and nothing works....not a virus issue and have not done any update. I'm attaching a menu where the graphics (text boxes are gone), the amazon home page where the name on the logo is missing and a search engine bar that looks broken. Photos that are supposed to be cropped do not appear cropped anymore...etc. I'm trying to click on the box further down that allows me to be notified when someone answers the thread and cannot tick the box.

I am not able to see live Streaming MJPEG video from both of my cameras on my new Samsung S21 Ultra. I had an S10 Plus and Firefox played both cameras video stream just fine. Odd thing is FireFox Focus plays both video streams like I experienced on my S10. But I have to login manually every time. I want to have the convenience of reg FireFox remembering user names etc. Any help is appreciated.

I cannot seem to retrieve any of my Firefox data. My bookmarks, plugins, login and password data are just gone. Years of data are gone. There is no "old profile data" and oddly enough none of the profiles have anything in them anyways. I have tried everything suggested and NOTHING has worked. Most people have no clue about the files and folders and definitely shouldn't be moving stuff around as most of the threads have. This has happened one other time and it was far from being this difficult. I can't even import my old logins from Safari. Is years of my data just gone? If Im signed into my Firefox account shouldn't it be there, or what is the point of having one? I need a very easy solution to this extremely frustrating issue.
