Hi Everyone. Suddenly this morning I was unable to send or receive any E-mails using my Thunderbird account. Everything had previously been working fine. I telephoned my Internet Service provider ( Talk Talk ) and learned that their engineers were aware of an outage covering my area, and were working to fix it. Now this afternoon I logged-on again and discovered that I was able to receive E-mails but not send any replies. In other words, I can't answer any E-mails. So I spent an hour on the telephone to Talk Talk customer service. They checked all my existing mail connections ( Tiscali Pop 3 account ) which were all correct as specified. Outgoing server connection is smtp.tiscali.co.uk with port 587. It was working OK until this morning.

Apparently Talk Talk are trying to persuade everyone to stop using third-party apps ( like Thunderbird ) and instead to use Talk Talk Webmail ! But I don't want that ! I like the layout on Thunderbird and am used to finding my way around my E-mails. I really don't like the format and style of Webmail. We left it that they would " escalate " the matter and get a senior manager to telephone me within the next day or two. That means, I am still unable to send any E-mails. When I attempt to send any E-mails I just get a message which says " connected to smtp.tiscali.co.uk " and the green " progress line " is completely green which presumably means my E-mail is in the process of being sent. But after that, although the green line is complete, nothing else happens and the E-mail does not get sent. Right now I am hoping that Talk Talk will have a " fix " for this issue when they ring me back. But I don't want to change my E-mail address and I certainly don't want to use Webmail. Any advice would be much appreciated. Many thanks. SG.

Last week, I had to re-installed OS X 10.8.5 (Mountain Lion) on my iMac because of lightening bolt surge. And, after doing so, I then had to re-install the Waterfox browser app. to gain better access to my email account (because the old version of Safari that came with the vintage OS re-installation is no longer viable)

My questions are: 1. Do my former bookmarks (or the Waterfox profile that they were stored in) still exist somewhere? and 2. Is it possible to retrieve them to replace (and/or add them to) the new profiled bookmarks created with the updated Waterfox app.?

I've already tried following some of the suggested help from the forum questions that I read here, but have been disheartened because no backups for my years of bookmarking seem to exist. Sadly, I never knew that there was a way to back up bookmarks prior to this recent investigation.

I have two different email addresses for the same person both of which are in my Contact file. When I try to send an email to the person typing in their name, only one of the email address shows up. How do I get both email addresses to show up so that I can select the appropriate address to send the email?

I've tried deleting the contact and retyping all information but when I do that, the suggested email addresses that show up are still the old deleted contact information and not the new information just entered.

I wanted to install Firefox in ReactOS and it seemed to be fine. I downloaded the version 48 from the ReactOS Package Manager and at the first start it said: "Update to Firefox 58 is available" and I clicked that totify. Then I pushed the button "Restart Firefox now" and a few seconds later Firefox 58 opened and everything workend fine... At least I thought it was like that: I wanted to log in to my Mozilla account and it opened the log-in page. It didn't load the page correctly but stayed forever on the white screen with the moz://a logo in the bottom left corner of the window and the blue loading circle in the middle. Than I let it sit there and came back about one hour later but nothing had changed. Then I tried to install a newer version manually but when I clicked on the installer *.EXEs ReactOS said "Not a valid Win32 application" or the Firefox installer said "Not compatible with this version of Windows". I really want to use the newest Firefox version on ReactOS (a legal Windows-imitating OS at the technical state of Windows Server 2003) but I couldn't find a way to do so.

Can anyone help me to install Firefox 89 or higher on ReactOS?

The German word concoction "Verschlimmbessern" which translates into "constantly 'improving' something until it actually becomes worse or dysfunctional".

I'm at a point now where we all give up on Firefox as these constant updates and uncalled and not requested changes not only become annoying but also introduce new dysfunctionality. (just like Windows 10 updates)

Too many to list here. but this job securing through constant new updates and changes gets very annoying.

Now the search feature has changed into some absurdity having to be in the address bar. We don't need that we don't want that! we wanted like it is and always was before.

Searching support I found answers but applying them does not work: "browser.urlbar.suggest.searches" change to false Search "keyword.enabled" change to false Search "browser.fixup.alternate.enabled" change to false browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus change to false browser.urlbar.update1 change to false browser.urlbar.update1.interventions change to false browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips change to false

About to uninstall this nonsense altogether and install an old version again or better yet just give up on it and find another browser! I need a reliable browser that works and not something that annoys me after every update.
