+ However, I can send the email normally with OAuth2 via SMTP

Please help me fix this problem.

Hi Firefox Team

I am very happy to use this browser as it serves all my needs perfectly! So thanks you for that.

The issue I have is about the updates. Whenever Firefox updates, I lose the sites saved on it. I have no issues with that.

However, can you give me the option to select a time and date for it?

That way I can, 1) Select a time when I am not working on Firefox. 2) Coordinate with other updates like Windows and McAfee.

This will ensure that I am prepared for the sites to disappear just once, instead of every time there's an update.

Thanks, Kajal

Why can a stupid failing script on a web-page, or even intentionally so programmed script disable the copy (and sometimes paste) functionality?

How can this be disabled/fixed?

One highlights a text (any text) on some web sites, Edit menu allows Copy, context menu allows Copy, one hits Copy, nothing happens. It's not even a page where someone wanted to "copy protect" some information.

Copy and Paste should work just as advertised since those were invented, how hard can it be to get that right? Even stupid Notepad never fails at it. And no, I don't care what the idiot who programmed a page though would be/should be best for me, I want Copy to be copy, Paste to be paste. This used to work in "original" Firefoxes even when page developers wanted to make it not work.

And yes, while on a given page Copy fails miserably, at the same time in other pages it works.

Hi,

I use the archiving feature of Thunderbird to move e-mail into yearly archives (Local Folders). I now have yearly archives going back a number of years. I appreciate the fact that they can be indexed by the search feature.

However they do take a fair amount of space on my laptop. I'd like to move some of the older years to a networked disk. I have several different e-mail accounts. My archives look like this:

  - Local Folders 
       - Comcast mail
             - 2011
                - Tree of sub-folders
             - 2012
                - Tree of sub-folders
             - etc.
        - Another mail ID
             - 2011
               - Tree of sub-folders
             - etc.

Can I select individual years within an e-mail identity and have only those on a networked disk? How would I do that?

What happens when I am away from my local network (and the networked disk with some of the Local Folders is not available)? Am I correct that those folders would simply not appear in my Thunderbird navigation pane? Or would it generate an error?

I generally set only the most recent years' archives to "Include messages in this folder in global search results". It's terrific to be able to find things from previous years, but I generally don't need to look back that many years. I also assume there's a performance penalty the larger the number of folders included.

Should I be sure that folders moved to the networked disk are set to NOT be included in the global indexing? Would having that set generate errors or strange behavior when I did a search while away from the networked disk? Or would the results in those folders show up (since they are in the index), but simply not be displayable?

Thanks for any help or guidance anyone can provide!

Apparently the last update lost my contacts. The address books are still there, but there are no contacts in them. They all seem to be empty address books.

Not sure if this part is relevant, but...

While searching the forum for an fix I noticed others had similar problems that were supposedly fixed in update version 78x. I checked my version, it said 68x on the updates page of the options menu. However, when I checked the update history, it said it was version 78x. I unchecked the automatic updates (may have been in safe mode as that was one of recommendations I found) and checked for updates and it said version 68x was available. Thinking this might bring back my contacts since 78x seemed to have borked the address book, I updated it. Didn't help, but now it says it's up to date with version 68x and version 78x doesn't seem to be available. The history shows it updated 68x on Oct 1 after 78x was updated on Sep 15.

I've used Thunderbird for over 10 years and never had a serious problem before. This is very frustrating as I had over 100 contacts, many with a charity that I help.

How can I get my contacts back without re-entering them manually?

Thanks.

Re: "In your firefox preferences, choose language and appearance, under font, check you have background set to white, and text set to black."

Any screenshots for this example? I use 8 different browsers and Firefox is the most counter-un-intuitive browser I've ever used. Why would Settings refer to "Language" to set the background color? There is no link that I can use to Fonts and Colors under Language and Appearance to change the background color. All I can do is select a Default font, Size, Advanced, and Colors. But In colors the Background is evidently set to white but it's actually black. So I must map my way around Text and Background, Text, Background, Use System colors, Override the colors specified by the page with your selection above, Only with High Contrast themes, Link Colors, Unvisited Links, Visited Links, Underline links.....yada yada yada blah blah blah.
