hello ...

yesterday Firefox updated itself on my tablet ( hung on the charger while I was at work ). In the evening all my open tabs were closed, the bookmarks were gone and FF was set as default browser. Where did my tabs and bookmarks go ? Auto update is / was disabled - default browser is another browser for good reason. FF runs / ran there actually permanently and was only sent into the background. Because the tablet should not be synchronized because of special software, the bookmarks only exist there. Why were they removed during a normal update ?

I recently had to re-install Thunderbird due to what I suspect was a disc corruption that caused it to stop working. The re-install is completed and it's up and running, and I'm trying to restore all my old emails and addresses from a recent backup file created with Mozbackup. Whilst the restore function within Mozbackup seems to run, none of the emails or address are restored when it's done.

Norton just told me that Firefox downloader downloaded bugs in both their updates and patches! My computer HAD started having problems a few days ago that I noticed (hanging up on the lock screen, not letting me sign in). Then Norton found the bugs. Said they were new but high risk. What's going on???

Several computers in the company have automatically updated to v78.2.2 of Thunderbird even though they are setup under options to allow us to determine when to do the updates, and now those machines cannot connect to the IMAP server any more. I have attempted deleting and reloading the account information, but we still get errors.

Our company cannot afford to be having email issues!

If it helps, most of the machines were on v68.12.0.

I have two Mac OS machines. On one it was easy, I clicked to update TB and it switched from 68 to 78 as a completely normal update, nothing special, and without any problem. Perfect.

However, on the other, I did exactly the same but all I get is the spinning baseball. I tried re-installing TB but still get the spinning baseball. I force quit TB and restarted but still get the spinning baseball. I left it spinning for half and hour and then was told that the app memory was full and that TB was not responding. So I currently have no access at all to any emails, stored or otherwise. And cannot access any menus or anything.

Complete disaster: any ideas how to save the day?

Does anyone ASK before hoisting such a horrendous upgrade on everyone. I run two small struggling businesses and you just lost me a half days work. RIDICULOUS.

I had it on auto-update for the odd patch, etc. NOT such a major overhaul and broken piece of junk. I give, donate and wWOULD PAY for the product if needed.

Thunderbird was one of the last email clients that worked and was for pros, not GUI Pollyannas - we do not need it to look like Outlook or have everything in "pills' and bubbles. HORRIBLE!

Now, vcan't even get my mail!

PLEASE is there anyway to downgrade this nightmare???

Rant over., Thank you.
