Once upon a time (due to what I don't know) I lost Thunderbird (like so many) and inquired about remedies to bring it back. There were too many. NONE of them worked (or at least not w/out security problems). It will not send or receive. Tried to change up from SMTP (outgoing- google mail), ports, connection security (SSL/TLS), and never re-acquired access and not allowing me 'o sign in using password', etc., and trying to make it function only gets me a 'security alert'. Once I crawled through the back door and found a way to receive emails (only) and I had to compromise my security to do so therefore trashed that idea. A security issue may be the problem (or) google not wanting to play fair w/Mozilla, etc., (two email accounts w/gmail; (T-Bird & Microsoft). so not sure and this was a long time ago. Still have the dead T-Bird accnt. waiting for the possible fix as I really (did) like to use it as it held a bunch and could utilize a lot. So, is there, will there (ever) be a fix or are they damaged beyond repair since Mozilla backed away? (Or were they the problem?),....... or wrong version = "version": "94.0.2", (have switched) or is it just my particular accnt. prob after all? [This FYI is w/Windows 10 and other specs shared.] Questions - No answers.

Which looks like Mozilla, which in a way is even worse. And this is not my home page it's supposed to open with, I assure you. Seems to be plugging VPN for the holidays. Yeah, right.

 (Bad enough Thunderbird is a crap-fest as when lost you can not get it back and 'no one' really seems to have a clue. Just phony (in house) remedies that never work- probably why Mozilla is history!)

Hi there,

I have a Firefox account which was registered using an email associated with a company I no longer work for. Since I have left the company, that email is inactive and I can no longer access it. This means that when I attempt to log into Firefox with that account, I cannot enter the verification / 2FA code because I cannot access the email.

Is there anyway I can close that Firefox account anyway? I do have the Firefox recovery key for that account though. I just wish for all the data associated with said account to be deleted.

Thanks

Okay so I am trying to use facebook messenger's "audio clip" function, but it says it does not have permissions to do so. I verified that my microphone(on my computers end) is enabled and able to be accessed, but when I go to firefox settings there is no option to allow or block facebook from having access. The Tab is just empty entirely with no option to "add a website" or remove one. I attached a screenshot of the error Im getting and the settings page. I reviewed the page "https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-manage-your-camera-and-microphone-permissions" and it shows that the website should be listed and I should be able to choose "allow or block" but the website is clearly not listed. Additionally that page references a button that does not seem to exist in my browser which was referenced as "the permissions icon". That icon is not anywhere on my browser or in the settings.

I attached 3 images that hopefully breakdown what I am trying to describe as its difficult to explain without directly referencing the images.

I wonder if this was due to hardware or software error? I recently renewed some computer parts.

I am having trouble opening a page from autohotkey. Half the time, my run command causes Firefox to issue a message that it must be closed in order to open the page. "Firefox is already running. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window." I think this is somehow related to which profile is to be used. I have insured, from profile-manager, that my current and desired profile are one and the same. I do not include the profile parameter in my RUN command.

I run FF 88. I don't think that matters. As a possible solution, I installed a PORTABLE version of FF94. Same problem still occurs. I was very careful to make sure each has separate PROFILE folders etc.

I am baffled as to how to fix this. It only started a month or two ago. I don't know what triggered it. I don't think it was any particular FF update, because I DO NOT ALLOW automatic updates and perform updates only every 6 months or so.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
