I am beyond frustrated. Suddenly around April 8, I stopped getting emails downloaded from the AT&T server and I was no longer able to send emails through Thunderbird either.

I know there's potentially some issue with security with SSL settings, or whatever, but I've verified my settings and they all appear to be correct. I even did some kind of test, changing some setting for a minute to see if the problem would clear up, and it didn't. My husband has had no issues receiving or sending email and I've compared his settings to mine and they are exact.

I really have no idea wth I'm doing here, and none of my computer savvy friends have been able to help either. I've basically been told to give up Thunderbird, suck it up and use my AT&T web-based server. Well, I have folders upon folders for organizing my email and I DO NOT WANT TO GIVE THAT UP.

Help!

Thanks!

I have seen in the past that people were wanting to know the same thing, but following the solutions from back in time don't work because too many things have changed.

Sooooo, how do I turn this off ?

I am running 78.9.1 (32-bit)

Trouble restoring firefox from backup

Hi,

After losing my session history and bookmarks from using firefox's "forget last 5 minutes" feature on accident, I used shadowcopyview to create a backup of my old profile. Now, after two reinstalls, I still cannot recover my session or bookmarks, even when replacing the old profile entirely.

JeffersonCher's wonderful scrounger has helped me to recover from a similiar blunder in the past, but this time, attempting to recover the session from a recovery file gave me 3 websites I haven't visited in 2 years and an error message when attempting to recover the bookmarks.

Anything you can provide would be a big help: I am very confused on how to really proceed.

Thanks!

Ok, so like the title says.. Years ago, Firefox changed from having the normal "File Edit View History" etc. as the default interface and tried to streamline everything into icons. I have no idea why. Maybe it had something to do with the mobile version. With a few customizations I was able to get the old look back, with my address bar.

Then a while back the address bar changed. It used to be that the address bar had a drop down that listed the sites you used most frequently. At some point mine just sortof froze and only lists the same 8 sites. Except its worse because 2 of them are now searches for Google and Amazon and not even the original google or amazon web pages. I cannot delete pages from this list like I could in the past, either.

Also, you could, you know... put an address in the address bar and it would take you directly to that site. Now it tries to do a search just as often as it actually takes me to the correct site.

This forcing search engines baffles me, because there's an actual search bar, right directly next to the address bar by default.

So if someone could help me understand how I can change my address bar back to being an address bar, that would be a great help to me. Second, if I could fix the drop down of sites to either be my most frequent sites, or a list of sites I add manually, that would be great also.

Suddenly my right click mouse button doesn't work with dropdown boxes (so for example above when I needed to select the topic I had to use my arrow key) .The choices, or different logins pop up for a second but I can't select one. This happened suddenly last week. Only in firefox and it's pretty annoying. What has been changed? thanks

I've a strange problem. I normally don't use such a setup so I can't say if it happened also in the past. Anyway I've looked around and couldn't find a solution for it.

In one office we have some computer, two of them have control on same email account. One of them uses Thunderbird the other uses Outlook 2019. Both are set with POP3 protocol. Both are set to leave the email on the server for 14 days.

Problem is that if I access the email with Thunderbird I can see it leaves the email on server but Outlook is not aware of them seems they are tagged in some way that are not downloaded anymore.

I've not continuous access to the computers so I've not done a full set of tests for example look what happens at the opposite if I access the email before with Outlook.

I've looked around and found many similar cases in the years but all of them related to IMAP accounts, not every single one related to POP3.

I've already checked that Oulook has set the "put a copy of incoming mail into xxx folder".

What I expect was that the same email eas downloaded on both computers, no matters the program used.

Does someone has similar cases ?

Thanks Flaviano

What is the nature of the "Disconnect" agency whose solicitation appears as a tab page from Firefox requesting donations? Please explain who is "Disconnect." From the web address it is not clear what the connection is with Mozilla. What is the difference between donating via the "Disconnect" and donating via the route provided under the "about Firefox" menu item? Presumably "Disconnect" is servicing Mozilla, yet I am wishing that relationship and security to be clarified more convincingly before contributing by that route. Thanks for responses.

Hi !

Firefox asked me again to create a new profile. Third or forth time within a month or two. Nothing serious, I have to admit, takes a few minutes to recover bookmarks, reset duckduckgo as default search engine, etc., but why is it happening? Version 87.0, Windows 10, 64 bit.

And while I'm here... I use to download a lot of webpages, for information purposes, it's easier than to bookmark them all. Doesn't work correctly for a while now, they are not saved as webpages, but as something resembling html-format (or however to describe it)... Still working with Edge and Opera, so it must be a Firefox issue. And after each update Firefox was reset to French language automatically one or two days later, this also does not happen any more. I'm neither English nor French native speaker, so again, not a real problem, but why is it happening? or rather not happening any more?

Just curious... Thanks in advance for any hint Best regards Michael
