What values can it have? Why can't preference entries be deleted (not just given a value of "") by the user? Thank you.

I go to settings in firefox and for the information to set settings to enable cookies 3rd party they do not work. They tell me to check and uncheck boxes that I do not even have for setttings. I never had this problem before until Jan. of 2022. I have to use a different browser to get to the website and complete my task. There is something in the Firefox browser or they made changes/updates. Need step by step instructions. NEED TO TALK TO SOMEONE.

I downloaded Thunderbird application to my Mac, but it said it would not work on my version of OS (10.11.6). Is there a version of Thunderbird that will work on my Mac? My computer is old enough that I cannot upgrade to a later OS.

Hello there !!!

Today I had serious damage to my Mozilla Firefox. When I started up Firefox I realized that I lost all my opened tabs on all my (three) opened windows, although I had checked the box "Restore previous sessions" in the settings section.

I opened "settings" and I saw this box unchecked !!!!!

The unfortunate event of this failure is that I restarted Firefox and even worse I restarted the PC.

Now I wonder, after all these, if there is a way to restore all my lost TABs that, I believe, there are hidden somewhere...

Since my Thunderbird updated to 91.2.1 today, provider for google calander (91.0.2) asked me to log in to google account again but returns Error 403: rate_limit_exceeded.

I'm also really annoyed that somehow automatic updates have been switched on without me knowing. I've had them disabled for ages and was getting prompts to update. If I'd have know a major change was coming, and been prompted, I'd have waited.

In v.96.2.0, when a new tab is opened (either with the "+" or menu "new tab"), I do get a new tab - but in this version I no longer get the 3 vertical dots beside the address bar to allow me to, for instance, access my bookmarks or history. My choice is limited to the bookmarks already on the homepage. This was not the case with previous versions.

If, after I create the new tab, I do select one of the homepage bookmarks - say, Google search - the 3 vertical dots reappear and Incan get at my bookmarks ... but now I've got an unwanted extra tab open.

Weird.

I have an email account on Linux in /var/spool/mail, mbox format. I have Thunderbird 91.4.1 on a different Linux host with POP access to the mbox. I have Thunderbird 91.5.0 on a Windows 10 host, also with access to the same mbox via POP. Both Thunderbird clients are set to "leave messages on server until I delete them." Both synchonize the inbox just fine.

The problem is deleting. If I delete an email on either the Linux or Windows Thunderbird (either DEL or SHFT-DEL), it does delete it from that Thunderbird's inbox, but it is still there on the other Thunderbird. I can even open the supposedly deleted message. Closing and restarting Thunderbird does not remove this message from the inbox. In both cases the message is deleted from the server, but persists in the inbox of the Tbird client which did not do the delete.

Cache is set to use 220MB.

Can I fix this behavior?

I have been using Thunderbird for a long time with few problems which were easily solved. I have always been able to select some text, click <ctrlp> and get a simple dilog to select a printer which then prints my selection to the selected printer. Now I get print preview of the entire e-mail requesting a printer. The whole e-mail then goes to that printer. I tried preferences to find a way to direct to another source but couldn't find anything.

Hi,

Since the most recent update, websites are loading as if they are experiencing 'blocking' for example when I go to a certain page nothing loads until the whole website is loaded in the background then it suddenly appears complete. So for a short while I have no idea the link or website I visited is working.

Any suggestions or ideas?
