Dear community,

After my OS re-installation I was hoping and I was pretty sure, that my Firefox account is backing-up all of my bookmarks. I have done this again in the past and I had the bookmarks bar there always waiting for me intact. This time though I had to reset my Firefox account password as I forgot to store it somewhere and after that I managed to get access to my account but the bookmarks are nowhere to be found.

Is there a way to restore them without having a backup file (JSON or something else from the previous OS installation?). Is Mozilla storing these bookmarks somewhere so I can have them again but from the "cloud"? If not it is quite catastrophic for me. I hope there is a solution!

Thank you in advance!

Hi,

I have had a lot of problems with Thunderbird lately. I have tried a complete re-install, logging out and back in again, changing passwords and settings but it's not been working right for about two weeks.

First of all, all of my emails wouldn't load when clicking on them, they only displayed the subject in the overview browser. I had my settings as 'downloaded for offline viewing' so I tried making my settings so they weren't available for offline which worked for a bit but some messages took far too long to load, appox 3-5 mins per message. I then re-enabled for offline use and my mailboxes took about 5 days between 9am-6pm to download, each time only managing between 200-400 messages out of 21000 (I am working as a business) before I got a notification saying the server couldn't complete the task due to being under heavy load. Once this eventually completed, everything was fine for a few days but it started acting up again so I reverted back to online use only which again, worked fine for a few days and now most or if not all of my outgoing emails hang and struggle to send, most with the error - Sending of the message failed. The message could not be sent because the connection to Outgoing server (SMTP) smtp.ionos.co.uk was lost in the middle of the transaction. Try again. Or - connection timed out

I have also had issues with sending emails from my phone with attachments (pictures) where they just sit in the outbox not sending or doing anything, they don't have the red '!' like when there is an error which is puzzling and sometimes the emails show up days later.

I have tried speaking with my email provider (Ionos) and they were very unhelpful, I checked all my settings and details with them and they advised that nothing is wrong on their end.


Can someone shed some light on this and help me as I am at my absolute wits end with this! Any suggetions or help would be greatly appreciated, I have uploaded some of my thunderbird settings which may help. I really want to get this sorted as I enjoy using Thunderbird but at this rate, I am going to have to remove it completely and go back to Outlook.

Thanks.

I am running T-bird v60.9 on an old Mac with OS 10.9. I know it's hard to believe, but I do not want to update to v68 until an annoying issue with the Calendar is fixed (if it's ever fixed). Can I stop the "Wouldn't you like to update" dialog from popping up every day? Don't worry, I am running T-bird 68 (with the broken Calendar) on a newer Mac, so I'm not totally in the woods.

Thank you.

Hi,

Out of the blue two days ago, Thunderbird stopping checking for emails at startup, and as far as I can tell it's not the local folders bug mentioned in the similar threads I've read on this. When I click "Get messages" it works, and if I wait Thunderbird will still do the check set for every 10 minutes.

I have the box clicked for "check messages at startup." Additionally, I'm not in offline mode. I deleted and reset my passwords to see if that would fix anything, but it did not (and now I can no longer log in through Thunderbird with one of my old accounts because of a claimed password failure, but that's not my main priority right now.)

Sorry for the lengthiness; wanted answer most of the common questions upfront!

Hi! im moving to firefrox from chrome and im really happy with it but the main trouble i have is that i work with one page in particular in wich i must load documentation, to make it i must click and then a pop up should appear (Is in the pop-up where i drag the documents and load them into the page).

firefox/lockwise offers to generate a random password to create logins. Which is of course very useful.

Except that in my experience for a lot of sites it does not work. If a try to change my password on such a site to a random one, the context menu only offers 'fill password', it does not offer 'use generated password' and hence 'use securely generated password' is not reachable.

I was trying to work around this issue by creating a new login from the about:logins page but it seems you can't generate a password from that page either

To be clear for quite some accounts it all works as intended, so no problem in my setup, but quite regularly I am stuck without a way to generate a random password.

Hi. I am using Firefox for years, mainly due to it's increased security and privacy settings it provides. As you can see in the attached screenshots, I have set Firefox in Privacy & Security tab to Strict Tracking Protection and to Never remember history. The problem is that, when I close and reopen Firefox, NOT all cached content gets deleted automatically!

Please see my screenshot of Cookies and Site Data section. You will see that there is 1.1MB of Cached Web Content which is not deleted. If I don't manually delete this content (e.g. every week), the size of it gets grow to a very big number of MB (400-500MB).

Why Firefox is not deleting the Cached Web Content automatically since I told it explicitly to do it by choosing Never remember history?

I am using Mozilla Firefox 76.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows. This happens in all of my PCs..

Is this a Bug?
