I updated Thunderbird from 'Help - About Thunderbird' from v 78 to v 91. I had one calendar and after the update all entries in the calendar disappeared. I removed v91 and installed v78, and restored my last backup of the profile to solve the issue. Now I am on v 78.12.0 and I may update to v 78.14.0 from 'Help - About Thunderbird'. Is this a known issue?

I noticed that on v 78.12.0, the Calendar Properties shows 'Location: moz-storage-calendar://'. If I'm not mistaken the 'Location' field was removed in v 78.14.0.

Hi, the backup files listed on the Restore menu are complete snapshots of your bookmarks for that date, and not limited to the new ones added on those dates. Do you want to physically delete the full backups from disk?

If you want to view/delete your current bookmarks added during a certain period, here are the steps for that:

Sorting Bookmarks by Date Added

First, make sure you have the Added column in your Library window (called up by Manage Bookmarks). To add a new column to the display, right-click any existing column heading and check the column on the little drop-down list.

Next, if you aren't sure which folder the bookmarks are in you can do a general search in the upper right corner (entering http will match most bookmark URLs).

Then click the Added column heading to sort by that column. This should group together the bookmarks added on a particular date so you can review and delete the ones you don't want.

Does that work on your Firefox?

No because I do not have an "Added" column on the Library window called up by "Manage Bookmarks." YES I would like to "Physically delete (permanently get rid of) "the full backups from the disc." I have yet to see a "delete" tab anywhere in this version of Firefox (92.0). I would gladly revert to an earlier version if it eliminated the current "restore bookmarks" list. How do I do it?

Hi all -

I've had this problem for a few months and have tried troubleshooting it multiple ways (including searching for postings here). I was hoping the upgrade to 91 would resolve it, but alas!

The problem: When creating a new event that is tied to my Google Calendar via Lightning, any invitees I add are not saved, nor do they get notified via email. The rest of the event is saved as entered, but when I edit it and go to the Attendees tab at the bottom, it is empty.

This issue does not happen when I create an event and use the Thunderbird/Lightning "Home" calendar.

I've tried disconnecting / reconnecting my Google Calendar, updating all Add-Ons and Thunderbird (now running release 91), but nothing works.

Any suggestions are most appreciated.

Be well and stay safe! ________________ _____/ Regards, ____/ al

Systems: MacMini (2018) running Mojave 10.14.6 Windows 10 Pro v20H2, build 19042.1165, experience pack 120.2212.3530.0

Ever since FF v89 when I go into FF Settings in either system none of the options I have selected display an 'X' in that option's checkbox. In previous versions when I clicked in an option's checkbox an 'X' would appear and disappear when clicked again.

No more.

I've tried changing the theme to Dark, Light, System . . . no change to this issue in either my Mac or pc: I cannot see an 'X' in any option's checkbox in FF Settings.

Please see attached screenshots. They are with "Dark" theme, but its the same no matter what theme I choose.

How to get my Settings choices to show that I have checked off this or that option?

Solution??

Thanks!

Clicking a hyperlink in an Excel 365 worksheet will not open the URL in Firefox.

Using Excel 365, the worksheets contain tables of short interest history collected from a URL that varies only in the portion that is the companies symbol ( i.e. https://www.nasdaq.com/market-activity/stocks/akts/short-interest , where "akts" is the company symbol ). On the worksheet for each company this URL, with the correct symbol for the company has been included in a cell using the hyperlink feature.

In the past, clicking any of the hyperlinks immediately opened my default browser, which is the current version of Firefox, to the web page for the company identified by the symbol in the URL.

That changed after a version update of Firefox a number of months ago. Clicking the hyperlink will most times "freeze" Excel, and if I click anywhere in or on Excel a "not responding" message is thrown, and Excel must be manually closed resulting in a recover event for all workbooks that were open. Sometimes, not always, waiting several minutes, Firefox will open the URL. Not always. I've found that if that occurs, clicking on the same URL hyperlink that finally opened (after having closed it in Firefox) will crash Excel.

The attached image is a view of the "tip" still visible on a black screen after Excel has crashed.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

After my wife recently passed, I closed her email account. She, as I, had been using Thunderbird and I have her profile and all of the email files. I want to add an email account to TB so I can read these emails as they contain information pertaining to the charity we support. TB will NOT create an account without an active email to which it can connect. I need a way to add a "dead" account using her profile and email files but without reopening the original email account for which there would be a fee.

It would be great if TB would allow this but I've tried several approaches and none work but then I may have been doing it wrong.

Suggestions would be appreciated.

Sorry, I wasn't sure which topic this question fell under. I created my Firefox account in 2017 and have forgotten my Password. However, since creating my account in 2017, I've NEVER SIGNED OUT. Until I hopefully remember my password, I don't plan too.

Question - If I am signed into my Firefox account, as I have been since 2017, and get to a point (when updating or changing my settings, add-ons, etc) where it asks me to re-enter my Password, is there a set number of password sign in attempts before it locks me out? And, if it locks me out after so many incorrect attempts, does it also sign me out of Firefox as well OR do I stay signed in? Hopefully I explained my question.

I really don't want to lose my data with Password reset, so I'm trying find ways help me recall my correct Password. Thanks for any info. Kurt

I left my PC for a looong time (more than a month). Came back, booted Windows and started FF - and only one window reopened, despite when I closed it there was two. And "recent windows" in "history" - grayed out.

A small remark - I use my FF in weirdly advanced mode, I have many tab groups (through addon), and two windows - one with long-run tabs I need, another with temporary ones, which I lost now. There was some important sites/history. How can I restore it back?

Hello there,

Since update to 91 (91.1.1, Arch Linux), the flag "read only" on CalDav calendars is reset on Thunderbird startup.

This is observed on all (two different) CalDav servers, on all of their CalDav calendars. None of my accounts are Google calendars.

Reading this forum with people telling that "the way to add calendars changed", I obliged and re-subscribed to all my calendars, tried multiple times, restarting Thunderbird between every try. Auto-discovery works perfectly, finds all my calendars, but simply does not make the read only flag stick.

A few of my calendars really are read only, so Thunderbird continuously pokes me about old events that it cannot dismiss (see https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1348450), which is frustrating. Especially given that the issue centers around a simple local-side flag not sticking between restarts...

In most standard Windows applications, the title bar and tab colour follows the default Windows settings, e.g. (in my case) the title bar and tab colour of active application windows is blue. This is true even in Thunderbird. Since FF 89, title bar and tabs are something between white and light gray, which is extremely user-un-friendly. FF developer team should return to the previous colour scheme. Yes, I know the circumstances of free software but this is NO excuse to alienate millions of users. Developers that change fully functionable software just, well, just to CHANGE it should consider that they are doing WRONG. Could anyone tell them? I am just user, not developer and I am not willing to learn developer tools like BugZilla just for this simple guiding principle.

Yesterday I upgraded TB to v91.1.1 and since the upgrade I have been unable to send HMTL formatted emails via Thunderbird (can still send plain text). The diagnostic code from the sending server is:

Diagnostic-Code: smtp; 550 Maximum line length exceeded (see RFC 5322 2.1.1).

I haven't had any issues with TB previous versions (have been using TB for about 30 years) and it is the first time I have struck the error after an update to TB.

I have uninstalled TB and reinstalled the latest version - this made no difference.

Does anyone know if this is a bug with the current version where it is creating extra long line lengths in the send code?
