An automatic update on October 23rd from 68.12.1 to 78.4.0 and I can no longer send of receive email. The error message is:

Sending of the message failed. Peer using unsupported version of security protocol. The configuration related to mail.hiwaay.net must be corrected.

I have used Thuderbird with hiwaay.net for 20 years and would prefer to role back to 68.12.1, the update installed on October 1, if possible. Thank you much! Nancy

I updated T bird to ver 78.4 from whatever was the recent previous version but now have a corrupted profile (doesn't show all Inbox folders). I backed up the profile before the update. It has the same name as the corrupt profile. With Tbird closed, can I just use Explorer to replace the profile with its earlier version? OS is Win 10

Unable to import saved firefox profile (from windows 7 32-bit, to windows 10 64-bit) - new profile has none of my data

My attempt at transferring profile from an existing machine to a new machine has not produced the intended result, and I need help.

I saved my firefox profile (on a 32-bit windows 7 machine; firefox was fully up to date) without firefox running, in a ZIP file (the letter number combination followed by dot followed by default), then copied the ZIP file to the new machine (windows 10 64-bit), unzipped it (so I had the same file name as from the old machine), then copied this folder into position at

C:\users\user\appdata\roaming\mozilla\firefox\profiles

I then started firefox on the new machine, went to about:profiles, created new profile, selected the folder (which was present at this step), then completed the procedure and started a new firefox with the new profile (the option given in about:profiles).

The new instance of firefox has none of my data (several thousand bookmarks, passwords, etc.); instead looks like the other (default new) profile.

The existing profile file set was (after this procedure) visible in

C:\users\user\appdata\local\mozilla\firefox\profiles

The restored profile is running now as "Default User" and reflects the folder I transferred from the old machine (except that I changed the word "default" in that folder to "main", leaving the number-letter part and the dot unchanged.)

No errors were indicated from firefox (which is running version 83 now) during any steps of the old back-up/archive save step or the new restore/recover step.

What am I doing wrong? How can I recover my existing profile data? The procedure, while not very friendly, seems straightforward enough. I don't want to go into the details of recovering specific database files/folders; I'd just like the profile I had before functioning in the new machine.

Please help

How do I stop using beta?

I Googled about stopping using Firefox beta and transition to release version but none of the pages I found in this forum talks about an error message about user profile that only gives me the option to Create a New Profile (therefore losing all my add-ons, cookies, settings and everything) or Exit.

I tried manually googling "download Firefox" and downloaded the release version and after installing it, I get the warning message above. This thread here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1224888 has a link to the rapid release version but I end up in the same warning message.

Since the beta will necessarily always be a newer version than a release version, how do I transition from beta to a release version but preserve all my settings, add-ons and everything if Firefox will tell me that it won't let me use my existing profile in an older version, the release version?

My motivation to leave the beta version is that Firefox started having a bug since 27-Oct-2020 in Google meetings where either a shared screen or the camera image of the person in a meeting appears very zoomed in in the top left corner so it doesn't show the rest of the image.

I have just upgraded to Firefox 17 and found that Norton 360 "Login Assistant" (formally named Identity Safe) no longer works. It does not fill in the username and password fields. It worked very well and did all the right things when I was using Firefox 16. There is probably a quick fix but in the meantime I have had to revert to version 16. Looking forward to the problem being resolved.

Unless I'm mistaken it has a resolution of 640x480, Qualcomm Snapdragon S2 MSM8655/1.2 GHz Scorpion which I believe uses ARMv7, Android OS v2.3.5, and 512 MB of RAM which seem to meet the requirements listed. Still listed as not compatible in the Play Store so it requires manual apk installation if you want to use it. Haven't had any issues with it and am looking into what causes the incompatibility.

I'm trying to migrate a desktop plugin into a Firefox for Android plugin , and I need to use the 'eval' function. When I run the plugin on mobile, it crashes when eval(). This is what I need to do:

String adaptionFunction = getConcreteFunctionName(); eval (adaptionFunction);

The first line returns something like this: __Application__.newList() I also tryed this, but didn't work:

var tmpFunc = new Function(adaptionFunction); tmpFunc();

What I can do? This same code runs fine on desktop. Thanks for your time,
