Thunderbird 38.0.1 Windows 7.1 Click on "Write". Contacts side bar opens with "All Address Books" as default. It used to default to the LAST USED Address Book. [I've only noticed this new behavior in the last few days.] No matter which address book I select, Write now always opens with "All Address Books". ["All Address Books" displays a combined list of ALL the contacts in ALL the address books]. How do it get it to default to the 'last used' address book please?

Thunderbird gets slower and slower. While waiting for msgs to download the progress bar moves but it takes a long time. Sometimes it stops downloading and sometimes it will only download one msg of several. Meanwhile I can use Firefox to access my provider and see the email and read it, while Thunderbird is still cranking away.

Seems like forever, when I click on "Move To" the program provided a drop down list from which I could select the target location for my move.

Lately, however, there's been my previous move locations and a 'fill in' box.

I want to go back to the old way - have I changed something to get this new system?

The mailto: option on my copy of FFox 71.0 64-bit running under Windows 10 directs to Mozilla Thunderbird (68.3.1, 32-bit) my default email app. But I need to use a "-profile xxx" command argument with it, and I can't figure out how. At present, TBird appears to start sending the mail but never does; it has to be canceled.

I have Thunderbird on several boxes. On my Win 8.1 box, about half the time, TB hangs when I try to delete or move a message to another mailbox. This never happens on my Win 7 boxes. The IMAP server belongs to me and has only my private traffic. So my request to move to "trash' or another folder does not have to contend with any other client. Thunderbird shows a "not responding" message and greys out if I try to do anything else. This happens about half the time and is becoming a real problem for me.

Firefox is my browser and should be able to syn my different websites (Google, Microsoft, etc.) on my laptop computer...just like Firefox has done in the past. As you may know by opening my account. I am able to see all my Google emails on my cell phone, but not on my laptop computer. Why?

Also, as Firefox knows, I have a new Google email address: ...and a new password: (...Firefox uses it for my cell phone and I get all my Google emails on it. My question is: Why don't I?

In fact, when I click on my Google email account on my laptop computer, I get this message from Firefox down in the right hand corner, that you are not able to connect to my Google emails on my laptop computer...but I can on my cell phone. WHAT'S UP DOC?!?

I am at my wits end trying to figure this dichotomy out? I am seriously thinking about changing my Firefox browser to a different browser after all my years with Mozilla. HELP! Your faithful client. Dr. Richard C. Muzik
