Recently, I had to change my username at my bank's website because somebody was trying a brute force attack on my password. Now, the site still shows my old username, although I've gone to my Saved Logons in Preference and removed all logons for that site except for the correct one. I have to delete the old username from the typing box every time I log in there, after which I can select the correct (and only) saved username/password.

when I am on a video, picture..., and right clicked and executed "OPEN LINK IN NEW TAB", I would STAY on the tab I am on and continue to "open" new tabs. That way, I could open lots of new tabs from the page I am on.

Now, it TRANSFERS ME TO THE TAB I JUST OPENED and I have to "go back".

What changed with rel 87.0? How can I go back to "staying on my tab" I am on? I don't see any "options".

Dear FireFox,

I don't know where else to send this too as your contact us form/page is so complicated and I can't find an email address. You have a type on your page "https://monitor.firefox.com/remove-my-data", under "How do we remove it?". The paragraph below states "... It’s not available yet, but blick below if you are interested in finding out more." I believe "blick" should have been "click".

Thank you,

Crypt Lord

Also, my subject only needs to be four characters as I get this error message for my title "Ensure this value has at least 5 characters (it has 4)."

As a new Thunderbird user (and old outlook user), I tried to tidy my gmail folders up.

Basically I dragged my important gmail folders to the default Inbox above the italic (Gmail). All worked fine until the next time I opened Thunderbird when I found the the folders that I had moved were gone/

I have looked in the imap folder on my C drive and they are not there either. To add to this they are no longer in Gmail. Seems that the are lost forever? 

However if I do a search within Thunderbird, the folder name appears on the left hand side with an email count that seems to reflect what's in the folder.

There are some important emails for me and I would like to recover them.

Is this possible and how ?

Appreciate any help

Received the Beta update 88 on 04/06/2021. Since them when I attempt to send an email with earthlink account I no longer get the popup box to enter my password. The sending email just stays on the screen and email does not get sent.

I worked with earthling for an hour and they say all of the settings are correct for their service and could not find a problem.

I still get the password popup box for hotmail account. I attached picture from the thunderbird trouble shooting print out showing the account info and screen shots for the earthlink and hotmail screens with sending an email. Earthlink is my main account, Not sure what to do now.

Today, I started getting this error on many sites, including Google.com and YouTube.com. Example below when trying to connect to google: Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.google.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.google.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

How to change the line spacing of the folder pane for Thunderbird 78.3.1 (64-bit) on RedHat Enterprise Linux 7.

I have been working with Thunderbird on Linux since ca. 20 years. A few days ago, after upgrading to version 78.3.1 (64-bit), I had for the first time the problem that the font size and spacing of the folder pane was so large that I could only see a small subset of my folders on my laptop screen. So I studied the online forums and found that one has to create a userChrome.css file in the right place and put a style sheet in it to control the font parameters. With the following entry

  1. folderTree > treechildren {
 font-size: 11pt !important;
 font-family: Verdana !important;

}

I managed to decrease the font size, BUT this did not decrease the line spacing! So now the font is smaller but the lines in the folder page still are so widely spaced that too little is visible in the pane. I experimented with settings like

 margin-top: 0px !important;
 margin-bottom: 0px !important;
 line-height: 1.0em !important;
 padding: -1px !important;

but none of them seem to have any effect.

What is the right parameter to change here and where is all this documented? (And why did this setting change in the first place after being perfectly fine for so many years?)

Since the last update the button to show the Pocket list disappeared from the "library" dropdown. The pocket button in the address bar still exists and from there one can show the pocket list but this unintendedly saves the current page to pocket. If found no other way the enable a Pocket button in the toolbar.

Is Mozilla deprecating Pocket? Otherwise this change make no sense?!

iPhone works just fine on sites that Firefox won't access, so it's not the modem or the ISP.
