I just bought a new laptop and downloaded Firefox as I have used it for years. Although I imported my passwords and they are correct it will not log in to sites I need for work. It isn't telling me I have the wrong pw or id, it just does nothing.

I have updated windows, I have uninstalled and reinstalled....I don't know what else to do...any suggestions?

thanks

I've been noticing that when I click History > Clear Recent history, after clicking and going back to History, it hasn't removed everything. I have Firefox on my Android phone which is set to clear history upon close. For for unknown reasons, its leaving sites from both desktop and phone apps after clearing.

I'm running Firefox v 115.9.1esr on my Mac.

Any ideas?

I have both Gmail and Aol accounts on my installation, 115.9.0. My aol account is behaving funny. If I choose to display only unread emails, the screen goes blank and no messages show. I then click on sent message, click back on incoming and the messages reappear in the "all" messages display. The Gmail account is just fine, I can click between "All" and "Unread only" with no issues. Can't figure out what's going on.

HI, I'm trying to move the text to below the picture as in the screenshot of the popup (black back ground) on the non-popup pages because the mobile is not in popup, and the text is blocking the artwork as well. Is there a section to move the text outside of the picture? Thank you!

I have several email accounts; and they are all set up the same way on Firefox, and I have checked that that is so. But on one of the email accounts the "sent" file is missing. I have checked the "place copy in Sent..." In the subscription list "sent" does not show up for this account

Do you need more info ?

What can I do / check ?

Accidentally closed browser with many multiple tabs open. Tried to restore history but option was grayed out. Tried several times but was not able to get back to the original browsing window with the multiple open tabs.

Would really appreciate help on this, if possible, as the many multiple tabs contained family history research that will be difficult to impossible to duplicate.

Thank you.

My Thunderbird stopped receiving emails. I am on a Mac. I am posting here because I looked through the list here. Others had the same problem but the conversation is now archived. I tried the offered solutions and they didn't work. So having just fixed mine, I'm posting my solution. Go to System Settings. to Passwords. Unlock Passwords by signing in. There you find your email service listed. Click on it and check that that password matches the password on your account on your email services website. If it doesn't, fix it. Then open Thunderbird on the menu bar at the top, go to Settings ( not Account Settings.) Go to Passwords, to Saved Passwords, click on that and it will show you a list of your saved logins. Below the list, you can click on Show Passwords to see what's there. I had a bad password in there. (I had more than one password that had been saved for Thunderbird.) I deleted all Thunderbird passwords. Then I closed and reopened Thunderbird, clicked Get Messages, filled in the correct password when asked. Bingo. My email downloaded into Thunderbird.

How do I do this? Cox Communications is divesting itself of Email. Thunderbird is my client for my Cox email. It appears Cox has a data package which I need to import to Thunderbird or Mozilla and i need advice on how to do this? I am at wits-end on this issue, I would like to keep chaz4@ cox.net and ocal9@cox.net or switch them to mozilla.org or at least for a while forward them to chask14@yahoo.com. But if non of these things are possible, I guess I will have to stop using either email address. If you are a Human and not a machine, please send your response to chask14@yahoo.com as chaz4@cox.net may not be working anymore.

Disappearing tags for messages in a folder

I am running Thunderbird 115.9.0 on Lubuntu 23.10. I have 4 IMAP accounts I use. The folder and file is not shared and I am the only account with access to the directory.

I use emoji as tags for messages, and have a large number of filter rules defined, nearly all of them Tag a message and set the Junk Status to `Not Junk`. These rules are all set to execute `Manually` or on `Getting New Mail`.

If I select a given inbox folder for a mailbox and select `Tools` > `Run Filters on Folder`, all of the messages are properly tagged, however, after some time (10m?, On new mail receipt?) at least one of my mailboxes will lose all of the tags that were previously set for messages. Manually running the filters will restore the tags, until they disappear again some time later.

I've not seen anything in the Browser Console log (but perhaps I'm not using the right term?) Is there any way I can diagnose or fix this issue? Thanks!

I have had a few emails that did not show up in the inbox listing, so the message count at the top indicated more messages than were listed. Doing a search showed them, and by moving them from the search results to another folder, and then re-searching and moving them back, caused most of them to appear. But not all - I still have a message count of 20, but only 19 listed, see photo 1. Photo 2 shows the hidden email (from Barry Chandler). So the email is there, it's just not visible!

My email is on a gmail server. I've been using POP for a long time. My inbox in gmail has 160,000 emails. They go back to 2005. In Thunderbird I have moved emails from inbox to to various local folders. Right now I only have from 1/1/2022 forward in the Thunderbird inbox.

Let me know of any way of migrating to IMAP

Thanks in advance to any replies
