I'm on a macboox pro (intel) with the built in camera and an external camera fuji (not connected).

When I start a google meeting or skype call firefox wants to use the external camera and I don't see any options to use the internal camera.

If I try the same thing in Safari browser it works perfectly.

How do I tell firefox which camera to use?

Hi, When I run Firefox and use YoutubeTV I get slowness from internet. When I run YoutubeTV on Edge no problems. I have tried running it on Firefox in safe mode and with Bitdefender disabled still have issue. Please see attached screen shots. The delays of up to 3 seconds cause browser slowness when I try to browse to get details of something I am watching like on IMBD etc. I have been a long time user of Firefox and really don't like having to use Edge as my YoutubeTV browser.

Firefox Version 94.0.2

Edition Windows 10 Pro Version 21H2 Installed on ‎8/‎21/‎2021 OS build 19044.1387 Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.3920.0

I can send you HWinfo64 report if you need it.

My situation is that I'm receiving around 50-100 spam a day to different accounts. And there's the false classification problem on top of it.

So I'd like to set up rules that weeds out the spam folder - to some extent. Eg anything sent form a .ru address (plenty of those) can be deleted immediately. And I do NOT want to keep these in the trash either.

I know it's not directly possible (hello missing feature) but would the retention rules just maybe delete the if these were sorted into another (say 'russianJunk') folder? Or is the retention policy just another 'move' type operation (i.e. move to trash, not delete)?

Thanks

I have an error popup (see attached picture) each time I connect to the thunderbird agenda, and every 15 minutes if I stay logged in a longer time . I do not achieve to get rid of this message related to a deleted item in the agenda, as it seems the agenda in thunderbird wants to synchronise with the the agenda in gmail agenda where the data are stored. I do not have the same issue when using my iphone which is also synchronising the internal agenda with the gmail agenda. How can I get rid of this issue ? Thanks for helping Andreas Latz

The "restore previous session" option is no longer in the History section. All I can restore is individual pages. I often have a lot of tabs open, and twice now just in the last few weeks, I've lost the whole lot. One of those times I had closed Firefox, the other time it closed for no apparent reason.

bold textI have really become disillusioned with this email program, which I have used for many years on my Windows computers.

I have 5 email addresses; 3 of those were rendered inaccessible with the June update to Thunderbird; only the first and last addresses work now (or did, until today's update: 91.3.2, see below). Four email identities are handled by Zoho.com, the 5th is a gmail account. If I shift the order of the email accounts in Thunderbird, again only the first and last accounts are able to log into email, the others are rejected as having incorrect passwords.

The correct passwords are stored in Thunderbird, they are again rejected when re-entering them as requested by Thunderbird.

I have been screwing around with this issue for 5 months and have not been able to resolve it. I also have 2 laptops with Thunderbird installed. Regrettably all 3 computers were set for automatic updates to Thunderbird, and all have had the same issue since June, despite no changes/alterations on my part.

Today I updated to the latest release (91.3.2) on my desktop computer. I don't recognize the initial user screen now. Thunderbird only displays one of my email accounts, dunno what happened to the other 4 which are still in Account Settings. Also, my access to local folders is gone with this new release (or at least not obvious... all accounts and local folders used to appear on the left column).

I have no idea of how to revert to earlier Thunderbird releases, and my research has not revealed that secret.

Thunderbird has gone downhill in a hurry these past 5 months, and I haven't found a way to fix it. I would switch to another email product except that my Thunderbird local folders of saved emails would be gone forever (actually, this latest update may have rendered them inaccessible, so that issue may be moot).

Aaarrgghh, why are these people screwing up a perfectly good product??? At the very least, they could provide a way to save the prior version of the users' Thunderbird (and the users settings/preferences) before destroying it, maybe even make that save/restore a mandatory part of the update.

Just for grins I clicked on "Events and Tasks/Export" a moment ago... nothing happened.

Thunderbird 91.3.2 (64-bit) Mac OS


I have a yahoo.com.hk mail account. I've tried adding this email address. It would try to authenticate via AOL sign in page, typed in email address and password, it would then asks for verification code, via this prompt:

Enter verification code sent to your email: xxxx@yahoo.com.hk

I never receive such code on my yahoo.com.hk email and hence cannot sign in.

Could anyone help?

I have long used the option to have a separate address and search bar ("Add search bar in toolbar" in search settings). A few months ago, I changed that to "Use the address bar for search and navigation". The search bar is gone, but when I type a query into my combined address and search bar, I only get "We're having trouble finding this site".

Notes: -) My default search engine is DuckDuckGo, but it doesn't work either when I make Google my default search engine -) I can use the "this time search with..." buttons on bottom, but that's an extra step for every search -) My profile goes way back to the beginnings of Firefox. Any hidden settings that might not have been migrated properly in the past, and that I could check in the about:config?

I setup a background for Thunderbird emails using a jpeg image. When I view the sent email on my PC, it displays the way I set it up. However, when I view the sent email on my phone, the image sits there as an attachment. I presume the recipients are also getting the image as an attachment, because when they reply and my message is included below, then the background doesn't appear.

How do I ensure that the image displays as a background when the recipient receives the email?

Hi, I have set my default application for .pdf to be Microsoft Edge. So for example, when I open a .pdf in the file explorer it opens up in the Edge browser. When I open a .pdf in the download menu in Firefox the file does open in a pdf-explorer version of Edge. That is Edge will kinda open a new application just to show the .pdf, with no options for tabs or in general work as a web browser, it will only be a .pdf viewer. I would prefer for Firefox to open the .pdf in the normal Edge browser. Is there any way I can fix that?

This is probably a FAQ, although I can find no mention of the question using the search facility, so here goes...

I am just starting to use Thunderbird for my Usenet groups, having finally given up on Forte Agent. I don't seem to be able to find a way to define a filter to run across all subscribed groups - if I define it to operate on the news server (tweaknews) then it doesn't work on ANY of the groups. Surely I'm not expected to define the same filter for every single group, individually? What am I missing?

Thanks for any assistance.
