I am scripting the creation of e-mails using the command line

-compose ...

and now trying to incorporate embedding certain images. I created a routine to encode the images in base64 and build the proper HTML img tag to include in the 'body' argument.

It works flawlessly for png and jpg images, but bombs for bmp, tiff, gif, ... and am trying to understand why. Is this a limitation of the command line? Is there something I've missed in the documentation somewhere?

I've validated with online source that the output HTML is accurate. I've even saved the output as an HTML file and it renders just fine in any web browser, it is just the 'thunderbird -compose -body ...' that can't seem to handle it.

I am running the latest version of Thunderbird (installed a fresh copy today).

If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to hear it.

Thank you.

From time to time i need to log into my ISP's website portal, yet from today which is since the update yesterday) it will not allow me to it has my log in details saved correctly, but when i try to log in the sit it says they are incorrect, which they are not.

At first I thought the issue was with my ISP's website, so I was on the phone to them and together we tried crhome and edge and the log ins worked just fine, but not with the Firefox browser.

So sadly either something you changed in that update seems to be messing with the log in on this site and possibly others or possibly one of the add ons I use with it together with the browser is now causing an issue and is interferring I wouldn't have the first clue.

I run several versions of Firefox concurrently and recent added 103 ESR with no issues.

Backed Up bookmarks from a previous stable version to a .json file and imported to v103#

All the favicons were missing, replaced with a globe.

Visited a dozen sites to see if reloaded them but only 1 losaded icon. These are my own https sites with similar coding an NO code to hide icons - included google. No change.

Read all the posts I could. Verified databases, checked about:config BUT nothing changed, all bookmarks just show the globe icon. Even re-installed that version of Firefox, but same result. Started Firefox with an older profile from earlier version, for a rebuild. Same again.

Is this a bad feature of 103, an error or something else? Run 78.15ESR with same bookmarks and all are correct.

Any clues above all those published which do not work

For the past week my Firefox (running on Windows 10) has stopped working correctly. Tabs keep crashing and it won't open many websites. They will load if I close then re-open Firefox but that's getting a bit annoying. Everything was fine before, Firefox worked smoothly and without any problems. I don't know what's happened. I've tried opening the same sites on Edge, and can do that with no problems.

The sent emails from my primary email account disappeared after the latest update and now I can't save sent emails at all. The problem is probably because I had two folders for the same email address (kathy@onpasture.com). One appeared when I temporarily used Apple Mail for the account and it held any emails I sent using Apple Mail. I just let it sit there because I didn't know any better and it didn't seem to cause problems. The other was where all my sent messages went when I was using Thunderbird. That one is the one that has disappeared. I know that it is somewhere, because I can still see it on my iPad and on my Mac Laptop because I have not yet updated Thunderbird on those. It's only missing on my Mac desktop after the update.

I did go to the account setup and I tried changing the place where the emails went after being sent. The emails don't appear to be saved in "Sent" on the desktop with the updated Thunderbird. But they are being saved in the correct place on the iPad and Laptop.

There is a "folder" icon next to kathy@onpasture.com, while the other emails (I have 3 others) only have the little airplane icon next to them. I also tested them and the sent emails are going to the correct place to be saved.

I run on Macs. The desktop is version 12.5. My Thunderbird version is 102.3.0 (64 bit).

I think that's as much as I can tell you. I appreciate any help you can give.

Thanks so much!

Hi.

After some time of trial and error I finally came to the conclusion that having the 'youtube.com' tab and 'antenaplay.ro' (tv broadcast app) tabs opened prevents my computer from auto-entering sleep mode. Even if the streams on the 2 tabs are paused.

I don't have this issue on Chrome, I can leave the tabs opened there and my PC can enter sleep mode no problem. The thing is I want to keep using Mozilla because I got used to it and because it's not based on Chromium.

If you need more information just say so. Thanks for the help in advance! Peter.

DST just kicked in for Eastern Australia, I noticed that the timed calendar events for the day were reporting inaccurately.

The Win 10 OS automatically changed the time according to time-zone. Australia/Sydney changed from GST+10 to GST+11. With Thunderbird Calendar set for Australia/Sydney, and the Time being just after around 10:10 the events from around an hour prior are displayed a little inaccurately. An event at 09:11 is displayed as 08:11 in the 1 Day View (screen-shot supplied) The same event is displayed as 09:11 in the Agenda View (screen-shot supplied) as reported as current, with the following event reported as occurring in the future.

By changing Thunderbird's time-zone to Australia/Brisbane, which is still at GST+10, the agenda view at least returns to expected behaviour. The times of the events remain correct, but there refer to the past, not future.

The other calendar views, Day/Week/Multi-week/Month still report the events as in the 08 hour. But as I mainly use the agenda side view, this is less of a confusing display issue.

The third screen shot showing the Multi-week and Agenda views together illustrate the same event with two different times. That in itself strikes me odd that the same data can have two different values.

The 2 events illustrated were created in Thunderbird in the 09 hour.

… prior to this post, I applied the most recent update to Thunderbird, just in case.

When going full-screen on video, the browser doesn't show the full-screen the first time.

For example, when I want to view a full-screen video on YouTube/Disney/Netflix/Prime Video, I select the full-screen button as usual. However the top left-hand side corners always show a thin blue hue. The thin blue hue only goes away when I leave full-screen and re-select it.

Any ideas on what might be causing this? My browser is up-to-date
