I would like to sync my phone contacts with a file on my linux box. In that way i will be able to edit the file on the pc to look up or enter phone numbers that will be on the phone.

in a rational world, i would go to setup, select sync to file, accept the default of documents/firefox/phone-sync.txt and that would be it. is it possible in this world at all?

I just upgraded to version 78. Even with all of the accounts turned on, very few of the events show up (only events in the "Home" account appear--and I am not clear what the "Home" account is). How do I recover all of the other events? When I try to enter a new event, clicking on "save and close" does not save the event. All obvious information is filled in. What else must be done to save a new event?

Today I moved from Windows 10 to Ubuntu 20.04, in part on the back of assurance got from reading this recentish thread on saving old mail data when on Windows and later re-activating it once Ubuntu was installed:

https://superuser.com/questions/1550634/moving-thunderbird-email-setup-from-win10-to-linux-ubuntu

Trouble is, I cannot ¨see" any sign of the old mail folders and mail accounts after following the above procedure. Of course, I can re-create the existing mail accounts and start with empty mailboxes - but I don want to lose all my emails since 2006.

I tried searching through your forums archives for advice on this migration - which must be common with developers who need a Linux distro on their work machine - but found nothing so far.

Any suggestions welcome.

I'm using the latest version of Firefox on Android.

I downloaded a file which I eventually thought is of no use so I thought that it should be deleted. For that, I tried to delete it from the downloads section of the app itself.

But I noticed that no file(s) could be deleted from the application because the long press menu functionality is not working. Furthermore, there is no option to delete multiple downloads at once by selecting them from the list itself.

I have attached a screenshot under this post. I tired to delete the last file by long pressing it. But nothing happened. However if I enable the "External Download Manager", I am able to delete or love the files. But that's obviously increasing steps unnecessarily for a simple task. Please have a look over it and you will understand how there is no response when I tried to use a normal functionality.

Thank You. Kind Regards, VIVEK RAO ANAND

I can’t give Firefox permission to acces the camera and mic on my iPad Air. None of the features described in support articles resemble the version I just installed. When I click on the lock in the address bar, no page information is displayed - it behaves like I am just highlighting the URL. The settings menu is very limited and doesn’t include privacy/camera/microphone settings. The website I’m trying to use (doxy.me) simply gives me a pop-up that says the camera is blocked and doesn’t prompt to allow. Neither can I change the permission in system preferences because Firefox isn’t requesting system permission to access the camera and mic, and there’s no option to manually add apps to list of “allowed” apps. Any other suggestions? Very frustrating.

Whenever I save a webpage, it says failed in the Download history. The page actually does save but shows it as failed. If I double-click on the "failed" page in the Download history, the download history says that it saved, but if I open the re-saved page the re-saved webpage many times looks like a non-html page or simply only saves part of the page. This is puzzling in that if I ignore the false message that the page failed to save and open the page from my download folder, all looks fine. Please help, Thanks, pianotech

Greetings! Now that Apple has upgraded the iPad iOS to be able to use a mouse and keyboard, many folks are making their iPad Pro their main computer. I've been using Thunderbird as my main email client for many years and would love to see you folks develop a version for iOS, as I honestly am having a tough time finding another email client that I like as well as Thunderbird. Any chance you are working on an iOS Version for all us die hard TB users?

Thanks a bunch, Connie

Salve, ho delle cartelle in cui vengono inserite le email applicando un'etichetta nella posta in arriva, tutto funziona benissimo. Se invece dalla sottocartella cambio l'etichetta questa non viene spostata nonostante ci sia un filtro attivo. Faccio un esempio: nella posta in arrivo mi giunge una nuova email che io etichetto "in attesa di documenti". Questa email dopo 10 minuti si sposta nella sottocartella "In attesa di documenti", tutto ok. Il problema sorge quando clicco sull'email presente nella sottocartella "In attesa di pagamento" e modifico l'etichetta in "Documenti ricevuti". Avendo un filtro attivo con il quale chiedo di spostare l'email nella cartella "Documenti ricevuti" questa non si sposta. Come posso fare? Grazie anticipatamente per l'aiuto.

Vorrei poter inoltrare un suggerimento in merito ai filtri di Thunderbird. Attualmente è possibile eseguire i filtri su una cartella, ma se si trattano di email che cambiano lo status? Ad esempio quando un'email arriva in posta in arriva io posso etichettarla "In attesa di pagamento" e far sì che questa venga sposta in una sottocartella chiamata appunto "In attesa di pagamento". Ma se la stessa email da "In attesa di pagamento" dovesse poi cambiare in "Pagata" non posso applicare un filtro che la sposta nella sottocartella "Pagata" poichè i filtri scelti vengono eseguiti solo sulla cartella della posta in arriva mentre invece bisognerebbe scegliere la cartella in cui applicare il filtro. Nella finestra principale "Filtri messaggi" in basso troviamo proprio la funzione "Esegui i filtri scelti su". Se applico un filtro sulla cartella "Posta in arrivo" poi non posso applicare un nuovo filtra da eseguire per una sottocartella. Spero in un impostazione più personalizzabile. Intanto grazie per l'attenzione.
