I recently added Private Browsing on my Firefox browser. I do not want it and have tried several times to find a way to remove it, but cannot. Please help me. I am not very computer literate, so need simple answers. I see the Icon on my lower bar and hoped it would have an option for removal, but cannot find one. Thank you.

Thunderbird v31.4.0 Linux Mint Debian Edition 3.1.2-amd64 Cinnamon 2.0.14

When clicking on a link within an email, the system crashes and the monitor display displays jagged, diagonal lines. A cold boot is required. This can be repeated.

Same results running in Safe Mode.

Any ideas?

Now the most recent mails of two years are gone, most recent mail is from 2016. Nevertheless my quota is still 91% full. Did I completely lost these mails, or can I recover them? And how to make sure the newest 2000 mails stay, while anything older gets deleted - and my quota usage comes down.

Thanks for your help. Much appreciated

Pressing the Send button, on my Fully Updated, Freshly re-installed Thunderbird, gives NO FEEDBACK and then sometimes Crashes. Like nothing happens. I have a Fiber optic connection and I FREAKING KNOW that it is working because it eventually gives an error message when I try to close it. Because it pissed me off so I copied the file to the Online Email interface for the Email provider.

I can understand crash reports when I close Thunderbird, it gets confused, but when I close just the Email window... What Happens THEN!?!

Dear there,

I got an issue about the configuration of the email account in thunderbird. To save the space of disk, I would like to only download recent emails. So first I tried POPs options, but failed. There were no options for the related settings. Then I turned to IMAP options. But after Synchronization & Storage was set, the client did not seem to work well. It downloaded all messages from the remote server. Even though all the historic messages were deleted, the client downloaded all the messages again next time. What did it happen? Could you please give me a hand? Many thanks.

BTW, I create a new profile in D:\mymail disk. I hope this could not influence the upper steps.

Regards, Alex

table end

I have run Firefox in Safe Mode, and I still get the crashes, often on a Checkout page after getting an order together. My software is updated to the latest versions available, and I have kept my security up to date. If we cannot find a fix to stop all this crashing, I'll have to give up on Firefox as being highly unreliable. Since I am totally blind, RELIABILITY IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME!

Hey as per topic, I'm currently using ProtonVPN which I get at a prorate due to having ProtonMail, so I pay $6 for VPN and Mail. Their VPN supports P2P and Tor, I'm wondering if the same is true for Mozilla VPN. It doesn't explicitly state it does, or does not. In fact it doesnt' cover the topic.

Thanks

I need to continue to use an application (Web Site) built with Flash Player for the first 3 months of 2021. Flash Player support ends on December 31st 2020. What is the plan at Mozilla in terms of restricting access to Flash Player in 2021? - For example, is there a timebomb in the browser so that Flash Player will seize to work on December 31st? - If not, would Flash Player become inaccessible following the first browser update in 2021? If yes, do we know when date is scheduled for approximately? - Will the behavior be the same for all Firefox versions (Light, Enterprise, iOS, Android, etc..). Thank you!

My laptop locked up and I had to reset windows with the keep personal data option. However, upon restart whilst my documents were visible no Thunderbird mail or local accounts were visible and Thunderbird reverted to a new install screen. I restored windows to a previous version a couple of days older which upon restart reinstated my email accounts but without the passwords, however I cannot find my local folders at all? This is a disaster for me.... Can anyone help please? Thanks Adrian

I discovered that E-mail suddenly from my sister started to go directly to the junk file. I've moved them to the inbox several times, but each time within a few minutes the same E-mails disappear from inbox and go back to junk file. Once in the junk file they become marked as "not read" even though they were read. This only started in early Oct and I haven't notice it occurring with E-mail from anyone else...yet. I fear this will happen with any E-mail she sends and could start happening with E-mail from other people. Why is this happening and how can I make it stop? Can someone please help me? Thank you.
