Systems: MacMini (2018) running Mojave 10.14.6 Windows 10 Pro v20H2, build 19042.1165, experience pack 120.2212.3530.0

Ever since FF v89 when I go into FF Settings in either system none of the options I have selected display an 'X' in that option's checkbox. In previous versions when I clicked in an option's checkbox an 'X' would appear and disappear when clicked again.

No more.

I've tried changing the theme to Dark, Light, System . . . no change to this issue in either my Mac or pc: I cannot see an 'X' in any option's checkbox in FF Settings.

Please see attached screenshots. They are with "Dark" theme, but its the same no matter what theme I choose.

How to get my Settings choices to show that I have checked off this or that option?

Solution??

Thanks!

After my wife recently passed, I closed her email account. She, as I, had been using Thunderbird and I have her profile and all of the email files. I want to add an email account to TB so I can read these emails as they contain information pertaining to the charity we support. TB will NOT create an account without an active email to which it can connect. I need a way to add a "dead" account using her profile and email files but without reopening the original email account for which there would be a fee.

It would be great if TB would allow this but I've tried several approaches and none work but then I may have been doing it wrong.

Suggestions would be appreciated.

Sorry, I wasn't sure which topic this question fell under. I created my Firefox account in 2017 and have forgotten my Password. However, since creating my account in 2017, I've NEVER SIGNED OUT. Until I hopefully remember my password, I don't plan too.

Question - If I am signed into my Firefox account, as I have been since 2017, and get to a point (when updating or changing my settings, add-ons, etc) where it asks me to re-enter my Password, is there a set number of password sign in attempts before it locks me out? And, if it locks me out after so many incorrect attempts, does it also sign me out of Firefox as well OR do I stay signed in? Hopefully I explained my question.

I really don't want to lose my data with Password reset, so I'm trying find ways help me recall my correct Password. Thanks for any info. Kurt

Yesterday I upgraded TB to v91.1.1 and since the upgrade I have been unable to send HMTL formatted emails via Thunderbird (can still send plain text). The diagnostic code from the sending server is:

Diagnostic-Code: smtp; 550 Maximum line length exceeded (see RFC 5322 2.1.1).

I haven't had any issues with TB previous versions (have been using TB for about 30 years) and it is the first time I have struck the error after an update to TB.

I have uninstalled TB and reinstalled the latest version - this made no difference.

Does anyone know if this is a bug with the current version where it is creating extra long line lengths in the send code?

I remember seeing somewhere that -moz-box-ordinal-group does not keep assigned values in userChrome if the value is changed after being set the first time. This certainly seems to be the case -

With the following I had temporarily set the value to '1' but then set it back to '2' - it no longer works.

#clearDownloadsButton {

Hi, I need to change a friends Thunderbird from POP to IMAP and I am very nervous about loosing all their emails that they have in folders. What I therefore needed to know is can I keep the same account both POP and IMAP if one is disabled or do I have to delete one? Also if I can will I be able to access the old POP folders and emails when the POP account is disabled and IMAP account is not? Thanks Dave

Suddenly Thunderbird has stopped downloading POP3 Gmail

I read through your posted problems solved but didn't find anything like this...

Symptom: Thunderbird when asked to download messages (POP3 mode) displays a numerical count of messages to download, the download indicator starts, then immediately displays "no messages to download" and the process stops. But those unread messages ARE on the GMail server.

Detail I hope will prove helpful:

I am using Thunderbird version 78.14.0 but that update was a couple weeks ago as I vaguely remember and there was no e-mail problem afterward. The host PC is an HP laptop running 64-bit Windows 10 Home version 21H1. I have been successfully using this setup for my Gmail account for at least 5 years.

However, several times during the last week there was a problem with long delays in downloading messages. Usually when I send a message having a CC to myself, that CC is available for download within a few seconds. But during these problem periods the messages were delayed for several hours. On the last of those occasions prior to the current failure, a message was displayed indicating that GMail had a problem that was being addressed. Not sure whether that was on the GMail server or on Thunderbird, but seems it must have been on the server since I don't see how Thunderbird could have displayed it.

But now there have been no e-mail downloads for the last day and a half, although they are building up on the server where I can see them. I have not changed any settings on the server, nor on Thunderbird. I did try the changeover to "recent" as suggested in a GMail help article, but with no success. Actually there was no obvious change at all except that my e-mail address displayed above Inbox in Thunderbird added "recent:" to the beginning of my e-mail address. So I restored the original setup.

I have also tried re-starting Thunderbird, a couple times, but that made no difference.

What is happening here? More to the point, how to fix it? My suspicion is that GMail has caused this problem, but online search has not shown an outcry from frustrated GMail users that I expected to find.

Recently I have been seeing, what I believe is character encoding errors on many web sites.

As you can see from the attached, it appears as a series of 'ddddddddddd' but if I copy and paste that into Word or a text editor it appears correctly. Kinda random, some sites, some areas.

My Firefox automatically updates, so I do not know what version this started.

Hello,

Ref: Thunderbird 91.1.1 running on Ubuntu Mate 20.04.3 on a Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 Issue: For over a week whenever I do a search of my emails I'm unable to view an email result

In the first attached screenshot one can see a search being done on old emails for a given topic. The blue arrow indicates which email one wants to view in the list of results of the search.

The second screen shot attempts to view that selected email, but the Donation request window prevents viewing. Although long time user and recently donating again to the project this does not fix this issue.

I tried to look at the results of search of another email account but same result. Tried to repair the directory containing the result, to compact, to purge the startup buffer but nothing changes. Searched for a solution but found none, but maybe it's a question of key words for the search.

How to fix this please I really need to see my email search results often and right now nothing for this works.

Thanks

Greetings. I have scoured the web and read all the community posts on this robot head, under remote control, and orange stripes in the address bar problem that so many people seem to be having. There are a few answers, but almost all of them use very technical terms that are way above my head and not defined. None of them provide a sequence of steps to fix the problem that a browser novice might be able to follow. Surely there must be a way to fix this or to explain to frustrated users why it is there and not removable. None of my other Firefox browsers have this on other machines.

Is there a series of steps to solve the problem? That would be so helpful especially without undefined terms. Thanks so much. This type of answer will help so many frustrated users (me included of course) :)
