My old computer has died and I've got a new one, installed Ubuntu and Thunderbird. I need to get the contacts into the new Thunderbird profile but don't have access to an exported file, only the two .mab files. I know has been asked before, and I've tried following some of the advice but It's not working for me:

  • I tried pasting in the history.mab and abook.mab and restarting Thunderbird but none of the contacts appeared.
  • Advice to use MoreFunctionsForAddressBook add-on appears to be outdated.

Is there a way to configure multiple addressbook files and thus add (say) history-1.mab and abook1.mab (the files from my backup) to the new default ones?

Thunderbird 68 has been crashing on me fairly often when closing it down. I have not been able to assign a certain activity that causes it as it can close down just one day and crash when closing another day. I am using 68.10.0 but it was also happening in the previous build as well. The only add-ons I have are Enigmail and Lightning (which I don't even use but it is still enabled).

Has anyone else noticed this behavior?

Thanks

When I create a filter to automatically forward emails to another email address, the format of the message is modified. It creates an encoded block of text and loses imbedded links so that the recipient is unable to see the original information. I can open the same message and forward it to the same recipient, and the message I send manually has all of the required information and is in a normal text format. The saved outgoing message in my outbox in both cases matches whet the recipient sees, so I know these are going out in two different formats.

How do I send automatically forwarded messages in this normal format? Thanks, John

According to he description of “pinned tabs” (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/pinned-tabs-keep-favorite-websites-open):

   “Pinned Tabs are small, can't be closed accidentally and open automatically when you start Firefox.”

Unfortunately, this is no true. Often, I find that my pinned tabs end up moved to another window. I cannot say why it happens, but it certainly does, and often. I suspect it is related to dragging the mouse when I am trying to click. I am disabled, and sometimes my attempt to click results in some dragging. If you drag a pinned tab off the left edge of the window, it moves the pinned tab to a new window and unpins the tab. At this point, it is quite easy to accidentally close the tab, and the tab will no longer be automatically opened when Firefox is started.

It should not be so easy to drag a pinned tab to a new window. This behavior should be changed.

Hi I have never been able to get Firefox to spellcheck in Facebook. I am using the latest version of FF and also of Windows 10 x64. I have the UK English dictionary installed. Does anyone know if this is a well known issue or peculiar to my setup? I've tried to Google an answer but only seem to come up with help for older versions. There are references to 'multi line' text and I've tried making sure I have more than one line but still get no spell check. I am able to see spell check for Facebook in Edge and Chrome, but don't want to chenge my browser! Thanks in advance for any help :-)

I am running MACOS 10.15.5 on a MacBook Pro. Up until recently Firefox has worked perfectly. Now, and for maybe the past week or so, I get the pop-up error message "Firefox.app" can't be opened. No other indications or messages.

I have removed and reinstalled the app from the Firefox 77.0.1.dmg file. Still have the issue. I get the same msg when attempting to start Firefox in safe mode. I thought at first this issue may be due to the upgrade to 10.15.5 from 10.15.4, but a family member's Firefox works perfectly on 10.15.5. I actually don't remember when the jump to "5" from "4" actually happened. I have checked the forms and found nothing relating to this specific error. Perhaps I missed it.

I have attempted to recover Firefox from an earlier (6/2/2020)Time Machine backup which I believe was prior to the "5" upgrade, but the message is still the same.

Any help/suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

1. I had downloaded previous PDF files using Microsoft Edge. They came up on Firefox with no problems. I was able to highlight PDF text with no problems. 2. Today, I flipped a switch to download a PDF file using Firefox and to always display PDF files in Firefox. All previous Edge PDF files immediately had their icon changed. 3. Now, I can define the PDF text I want to highlight, but there is no action to click on to make the highlighting happen in a color of my choice.

This has been going on for over a year, first on my old Windows 7 computer and now on a new HP Windows 10 computer, to which I very carefully "migrated" Thunderbird. It works just fine except for this, which occurs at irregular intervals sometimes as often as two or three times a day and maybe as widely spaced as several days apart.

I have done every last thing suggested here and elsewhere, often more than once, but to no avail. This is the most vexing issue imaginable because it seems to have no solution. I am forced to keep ATT/Yahoo Mail open to ensure that I'm not missing emails. In all the years of using Thunderbird before this misery started, I never once had to have anything directly to do with ATT (and then ATT/Yahoo), which suited me just fine.

Thunderbird is a great email client except for this. There must be something that can be done to put a stop to it. Please, please don't suggest all the usual stuff, because they have not worked. Does anyone know what actually does work?

Thank you.

OK sorry about not getting right back, I ask for help then I don't follow through not the best way of doing this. So I have done some more exploring on this problem. I am not sure what's going on. So I am running dual display on a laptop running windows 10 . Seems to me everything is updated. So up on the main display (external display) it's OK everything seems to be great on it.

So if I go to the laptop display that's where my problem is. So what I have done is on max the window is where I get this problem. Min. the size window goes away if the screen's location is about 1" down from the top of the frame on the screen. If I move it up some just a little 3/4" it seems to be a small drop down window again. If I move it up even more not to the max but just up to say about 1/2" the drop down window gets bigger however it is still cut down with no way to scroll down to see the rest of the window. So what my thoughts are is the over scan of the video is too big? If so how do I take care of it? I hope this helps out. Let me know thank you for your help on this matter. So if I go to single display its all good on the laptop window.
