When I click the download button I usually see my recent downloads and click open the file directly from the drop down. After 10-20 downloads are performed the drop down no longer shows my recent files until I restart firefox. I think the issue is once you hit a certain amount of downloads the preview drop down no longer works. Is this a know bug? Its happening on any pc, im on version 104.0.2 (64-bit)

New address book in 102.2.2 on Linux Mint Cinnamon 20.3, the line spacing when in density->compact is overlapping text. To get it looking right, density->touch works, but that changes all the other parts of the UI line the email threads and folder thread panes. Even the middle density setting overlaps a bit. I have another PC with Windows 10 installed and that address book spacing is not overlapping. This is a new profile. I imported a vcf file to get addresses. Changing the theme in Linux does not change the appearance. I have set the default font in Linux to 16pt. I'm using a 1920x1080 screen and need the font larger in Linux to make all applications readable. Other than the address book appearance, the remainder of the UI character spacing and line spacing is okay, not matter what density I use. I just prefer compact, it uses less space on the screen.

I somehow ended up with two inboxes, one below lkoskela@email.com and the other below lkoskela@mail.com(IMAX). These were both receiving different emails. I called mail.com support and he took over control and removed everything under lkoskela@mail.com (IMAX). This left me without a Spam folder or a Saved folder. I decided to uninstall Thunderbird and re-install it. I tested the new installation by calling a friend and having her send an email. It never arrived in Thunderbird but when I logged on to mail.com on the net it was there. I hope this makes sense to you because I'm thoroughly confused.

password listed in the saved logins is correct, but it does NOT export to the bank a/c correctly - it adds one more character, and since I can't "view" it there I don't know what it adds! when i copy and paste it from the saved logons page, it works - but the "automatic" entry onto the bank's sign-in page is not correct, and I can see it has one too many characters there.

For years I've set the background display color in about:config to a medium gray, #CCCCCC. Main purpose was to change the background color of the about:blank page, which is my home page and my new tab page.

Note I am not overriding colors; #CCCCCC only showed up as the bgcolor for about:blank. Occasionally websites which forgot to specify a background color would show up with a medium gray background, a minor inconvenience and a hint their coding was not so great.

Just realized my background color selection for about:blank isn't working anymore. The background color of the about:blank page is white. Not sure when it changed. I failed to notice when the medium gray disappeared because I have been reflexively pressing the dim screen button. I have vision issues and need to avoid a white screen.

There was a question in 2021 about the about:blank page bgcolor turning white which was archived but does not look resolved.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1344438

Does about:blank now specify a bgcolor, overriding my about:config setting? I still have browser.display.background_color set to #CCCCCC. Do I need to change another value for about:blank now? Thanks for your help.

New info; Some of the folders were moved. Was able to recover Inbox and Archives by selecting Recent Folders. Still have not recovered Sent emails. Other folders still missing.

Disregard. All has been recovered

There have been several updates to Thunderbird recently, in quick succession. Version 102.2.2 nixed my bookmarks, which I think were restored in version 102.3.0 - now version 102.3.1 has lost them again. (This sequence might not be strictly accurate: it's difficult to keep track of Thunderbird's many updates.)

The bookmarks toolbar is enabled.

The 'Add Bookmark' button shows and seems to be working, but the bookmarks don't appear anywhere. The 'more' button adjacent produces a sort of greyed-out caret mark when the down arrow is clicked and again nothing happens (or is hidden from sight!).

Now bookmarks are not vital to my work, but they are very useful and it would be good to get them back. I do recall seeing somewhere a reference to toolbars being 'lost' or squashed out in some way, but can't now find the source. Any ideas?

I don't want to 'refresh' T because it took a long time to get all my settings and preferences right.

I am running our of space on drive C:/. My profile folder is over 10GB, and moving it would solve the space problem. I had some correspondence on here on that topic a while ago, but all my old Thunderbird enquiries seem to have disappeared.

I've seen several similar questions here, and the answers have had variable results. I simply want move everything from drive C: to drive E:, so that when I next open Thunderbird, it finds the profile as if it were still in the original place. I would guess I have to edit profiles.ini to reflect the new location, but I see suggestions that I should not.

Any foolproof answers would be much appreciated.

I'm getting this message once a day. This started sometime after the update to version 102, and I've had to download / upgrade for the last couple of minor updates. Any assistance would be welcome so automatic updates would start again. These messages pop up even when there is no new release available and I'm at the current release.

Personal PC specs include: OS Name & Version Microsoft Windows 11 Home 10.0.22000 Build 22000

I do use AVG Internet Security as well as NordVPN.

Screenshots are from a release back to show that I was on the current release (my Thunderbird settings are on automatic update) yet was being prompted to get a new release.

I think it's after TB updated past version 100 that only selective addresses appear when I start typing in a contact's name in the address field. I haven't changed anything in Settings, but for Addressing it's set to use "Local Address Books" when addressing messages and the default startup directory is "All Address Books." Based on what I can discern it looks like it's not suggesting any addresses from Gmail. There are in fact 2 Gmail accounts connected to TB and they show up in the Address Book. If the side bar is enabled these address books show up and are searchable. Any ideas?
