Hello,

Since upgrading to 78.6.1 yesterday, my TASKS list that displays alongside my Calendar is listing all my tasks going back to when they were first created. I have gone through all of them 3 times now, ticking all the boxes to clear them off the Task list but when I restart Thunderbird they are all showing in the Tasks list again. I've tried double-clicking on an entry and then 'Edit All Occurrences', made changes and then saved again, but they all just keep reappearing in the Tasks List as if they haven't been completed??

Messages disappear every time Thunderbird checks for new messages; can make reappear though

On my laptop (Macbook Pro 2020; macOS 10.15.7), in Thunderbird (78.6.1; 64-bit), within only one email account (IMAP; server type = owl), the messages I see in every folder for that account disappear every time Thunderbird checks for new messages. (I have changed the time value to verify this.) This of course just started happening today, has worked fine for many months before this (even last night), and I recall no changes having been made to trigger this.

I can see the messages in any given folder again "if" I click on another folder and then back on that original folder. It is as if Thunderbird is forced to reload/re-show them. Or, I can right click on any folder, choose Properties and then click Repair Folder. This, too will restore visibility to the messages, until Thunderbird checks for new messages; whereupon, they all disappear again.

In order to give you wonderfully helpful people more information, just in case...

  • I did add this email account in Thunderbird using the Owl for Exchange extension, which has worked great. I do not know if it may be the culprit. Restarting Thunderbird in Safe Mode cannot verify this operation since the account is not even available when doing so.
  • I have multiple email accounts created in Thunderbird, even other IMAP accounts, and this only happens with one account.
  • This same problem email account does not have issues online or through my phone.
  • I noticed that this problem email account is the only one that will not allow me to Compact Folders. That option is greyed out for some reason.
  • If I have unread messages in my Inbox, then the Inbox folder still indicates as much, even though the messages are not visible until I re-jog things.

I am currently out of ideas.

Suddenly, Firefox won't load Google Calendar. I see the template, but the items on the calendar won't load. I know it's not the calendar itself because it loads fine in Chrome and on all my android devices. I made sure all the add-ons were taken off. I refreshed. I cleared the cache. Erased history. Nothing worked.

I finally gave up, backed up all my bookmarks, and deleted Firefox. I downloaded it fresh and installed it again. Same problem! The calendar won't load. I found others complaining, but no one had a solution.

Not to be a conspiracy theorist, but a friend told me this was part of a "browser war" and Firefox would no longer support a variety of sites and apps. Is that true? Or do you have a solution.

I can't toggle the summary and the web page of a message. When I double-click the message, I see a green bar at the bottom of the page, but that is all. The other two options are normal. I would like the web page to come up directly after I click the message, instead of having to click on a link. I am using the latest version of Thunderbird 78 something.

Basically since about 15-30 days ago my firefox has been constantly crashing when I open new tab or even simply a link to a website... the more 'power consuming' process is the more likely it will crash. Simply browsing stuff has nearly 0 likelihood of crashing. The frequency varies - something like youtube or steam game browsing will crash with extremely high frequency and will work fine after reopened. Some text based websites will barely ever crash the firefox.

What happens is either instant crash(most frequently) or infinite 'not responding' with the solution being task manager end process.

Either way it happens - reopening browser reopens all tabs that were open.

What I tried: 1) Cleared cache 2) Disabled all extensions. 3) Tried checking about:crashes - 0 reports there in last 30 days... meaning whenever I crash no actual crash report comes in.

I am using chrome at the same time and it has 0 crashing issues under similar circumstances.

I am working on a Mac with OS Mojave 10.14.6. I am gettting odd characters popping up beside the apostrophe and pound signs amongst others. I can change the unicode from Western to Unicode (View/encode) which will give me the correct text for that email, but it only works for that email and, if I reboot Thunderbird, it defaults back to Western and the odd characters again. How do I get it to stay on Unicode for all emails? My tech guy has also tried but to no avail!!

Hello everyone,

Since a few days I have a problem with the layout Firefox gives me displaying “youtube.com”. The layout and a lot of functions (like play, full screen etc.) have changed or disappeared. The changes don’t apply in Firefox’s private Mode (and neither in Google Chrome nor on Firefox of my girlfriend’s laptop). I deactivated every single Addon and searched on google - unfortunately, I could not find any solution. Does somebody have an idea?

I have added two pictures where you can see the comparison between normal and private mode.

I have the latest version for Firefox and Adobe Shockwave Flash.

Thanks a lot in advance and enjoy your day, Simon

It looks like Thunderbird has automatically "upgraded" to release 78.4.0.

I just went to retrieve an email from one of my "Local Folders" and was alarmed to see it's empty?

I checked in some other folders and they look OK.

This folder is quite old and has quite a few images in it - I just looked at the HDD and the folder is there and huge (355MB). I just checked on a backup drive from a couple of months ago and the file was 350MB then - so TB could handle large Local Folders in previous versions.

I noticed there was a TB upgrade to 78.4.1 available - that's not fixed the problem.

I'll have to work out how to downgrade to a previous version until this problems gets sorted.

I have Thunderbird on three macs. All three are on Thunderbird version 78.6.1 using imap. One mac on Big Sur, the other two on Sierra. Interesting however, that only on one "Sierra" Mac, I cannot search: "email address=> search message. Neither pull-down menu "subject" or "contains" can be changed to other search criteria, and it does not accept any text in the search query. However, "search" from main windows ( top right ) works. On the other two macs everything is fine. Tried remove and re-install Thunderbird including profile, and configured new profile. Nothing changes, same problem. The only difference is, the working Thunderbird is on a macbook pro ( Sierra ), and the non functional is on a Mac-mini ( Sierra ). Any ideas ?
