Where can I find offline installations for Firefox? Please don't say "https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/all/" like the previous 20 or so answers to this question. It simply doesn't work. All you get are Stub installers with no option to download only. I have gone as far as completely trying this and the only thing that I could achieve was to upgrade Firefox on the download computer. Why has this Full install thing been a never ending issue with Mozilla? Is it so hard to list these as well as the Installer version? Many people don't like installers.

Emails keep reappearing after being deleted - not deleted from server

Ever since the last Windows 10 update (1903 64-bit) and Thunderbird update (60.7.1 32-bit), I have been getting multiple duplicate emails. When I delete them, they are transferred to the Trash folder, but as soon as the Get Messages button is clicked, or the Inbox is refreshed automatically, they reappear in my Inbox. This happens on all my email accounts.

The problem seems to be that they are not being deleted from the mail server (pop3.virginmedia.com), despite the server settings tickbox being set to "Leave messages on server for at most 14 days or until I delete them". I have tried unticking the "Leave messages on server" box, but that makes no difference. I also installed a "Remove duplicate messages" add-on, but again that seems to have had only limited effect.

Any ideas?

Hi. After updating to 58.0 my system crashed and Firefox was rebooted. However the 15 or so tabs I had open were not restored, and I can't find any file in the Firefox/Mozilla folders on my computer that might contain a record of them (all files are from either after the crash, or the newest ones before that are from early January). Is there a way to restore the session from synced information?

When I open Firefox I get a message “Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your device?” If I click on Yes everything then proceeds as normal. If I close Firefox and then re-open it, the same thing happens (even as soon as one minute - or less - later). This is recent behaviour (last couple of days) and there has been no known event which might have triggered this. Other browsers (Chrome, Edge) do not exhibit this behaviour. How can I fix this (or do I just switch browsers)? The settings re Compatibility Mode and Run as Administrator are both unchecked.

Thanks for any assistance.

the problem started with the disappearnce of the send button, when looking for help, found that indeed was missing from the window created for writing a mail, i.e. the whole e-mail tool bar (hope that this is the correct technical term), so the ony helpful comment was the one explaining how to use keyboard combinations - but since there's so many more functions unable to be accessed without the e-mail toolbaar I'd really appreciate to get it back - for that reason, downloaded Thunderbird again, reinstalled it, but this didn't help. As I myself don't know any other way, would like to ask for help! Many thanks in adance! Kind regards, sender
