i noticed that the latest T-bird "upgrade" is completely new and unusable to me. the result was that I lost ALL my email addresses, current conversations, and more importantly my client database. I went online and got a copy of the V68 and re-installed it, but have found no way to get back all the latest emails.

I have tried most of the solutions, but they always lead to something "..back up your profiles...", but all my previous Profiles are gone and replaced w/ 4 that contain no usable info. I searched for the .mab.bak files as directed in several Help posts, but the nearest I can find is from 6 MONTHS ago and I have hundreds of messages during that 6-month time frame.

Several help ideas came to a halt because there were no such buttons found as in the directions and so had to stop.

So right now, I need to get my address book, recent email contacts and email list back and probably downgrade to V68.

PLEASE HELP ME TO RESTORE MY NEEDED FILES! My business depends heavily on my email and that is definitely not working.

Thank you in advance, Wolfgang

Hi there, I'm facing a weird problem with YouTube. I don't know whether it has something to do with their server or the Firefox browser, but when I'm watching video there, every time when I'm playing the next video or click another video to be play, by the next page YouTube suddenly logged me out for no reason. I thought it must be the YouTube server was having problem.

So to confirmed my assumption, I did the same thing on other browsers. Well, it work fine and YouTube didn't suddenly logged me out. From that, I knew it was Firefox browser was the problem. I tried to delete all the history and the other data, uninstall and re-install Firefox, and sign-out and sign-in my Firefox account. I did those things for like 3 times but it still happening.

I'm hoping that Firefox could fix this issue as soon as possible, cuz yeah I preferred using Firefox browser instead of others.

Thanks in advance...

I can't set up sync. I have Firefox for Mac 89.0 on a MacBook and Firefox for Android 89.1.1 on a Samsung Galaxy. I have signed into my Firefox account on both. When I attempt to link the two to sync, I am given a QR Code on the Mac screen. I snap a picture of the QR Code using the Scan button on Firefox for Android, but I always get an error message on my phone stating "Did you use the system camera? You must pair from within a Firefox app". By using the scan button near the Firefox for Android address bar, I thought I was within the Firefox app. I don't understand what I'm supposed to do differently.

I am starting a new thread and repeating what I had written in the old thread which had too many responses to follow coherently.

I am not sure what td47 means as I don't have this issue as I only use DuckDuckGo which is there when open a new tab.

What want to know how you get the icons in the header of the screen to be "seeable". I believe with my header I always had white print which is now nearly invisible. Not only that but all the icons up there shrank and became outlines only instead of solid objects! I have cats batik_01 theme. It seems all the themes I have ever used had write print but I got by ok til now. Is it that I have to have a lighter toned theme in order to see everything up there again or what?

I'd take a screenshot but you can't of the header/or I don't know how to do this.

I have my Firefox settings to open search results links in a new tab. I can get this to happen with Google, but I *rarely* use it. I prefer Bing. My settings are for links to open in a new tab, and they won't do that with Bing.

I have read what others have suggested about fixing this problem. I made changes in about:config with no result. I opened in Firefox safe mode and didn't find anything on my own. Will check out any tips though.

This has only recently become an issue. I know that Ads have always opened in the same tab and I do not care to right-click or use ctrl.

Another issue I suddenly had with the latest new design update was that when I used the Bing search box, it started switching to an address bar search. I was able to fix that.

Anyone know a sure cure?

Hello Firefox People again, Thank you for fixing the scrollbar color boxes! My scrollbars are all the right colors and size now and my options buttons are working.The dotted lines on all my webpages left and have returned to normal again...but I still can't get my firefox color extension to load up at all. I'm just wanting to know if you're working on it or not. I see a lot of other people are having not a few quiet fits over the colors being messed up here. I'm not going to yell at anybody though...I can see you have an awful lot of "I wants"and "I'm leavings" to deal with. I have Firefox version 88.1 handy just in case, but to me the security fixes are more important, so I'll stick around and wait for everything else to work. I will use the themes others have made for now. Crossing fingers for fixes so I can play. Have a great day/night!

[SOLVED!] Firefox 89 Update: Can't Select Text, Drag Image, Use Scrollbar - EVERYTHING Drags Entire Window

[OK, I figured this out, but cannot delete this question, only edit it, so I've marked it as solved, and will add the solution below this initial question. Basically, it was due to my eternal battle with Mozilla's tabs bar placement, and the code I used to solve it]

Hi. After upgrading FF to 89 last night, besides the usual battle with Mozilla's insistence on moving the tabs to the very top, I've come across something that's quite serious, and rendering FF unusable: whenever I try to select some text, like on a page or in the Google search bar, the text cursor suddenly becomes the move cursor, and the entire window is dragged. The same is true when I try to drag an image directly into a folder. Also, forget trying to navigate a page by dragging the scrollbar - that initiates a drag of FF to another desktop (scrollbars within pages, like the one at the right of this text box I'm in, just try to drag FF up or down). So this is like holding Alt in Linux to click and drag the whole window in focus, and it's not something I asked for. The only thing I've been able to fix is dragging by clicking on an empty area of the menubar, navigation bar and bookmarks toolbar, with the following code in userChrome.css:

"#navigator-toolbox {

 -moz-window-dragging: no-drag !important;

}"

(That first line apparently was supposed to disable dragging in all areas, including the title bar, but it only worked for all the toolbars below the title bar, but I'm OK with being able to drag the window by the title bar).

I can still drag to select text in the address box, and the Search box next to it, and I can still drag tabs to reorder them, but trying to select text on pages is impossible. The only way I can sometimes select text, depending where I am (like in this text box) is to start the drag, let go of the mouse button to stop the drag of the window, and move the cursor till all the text I want selected is highlighted, and either hit Del to delete it, Ctrl+C to copy it, or type over it (I cannot, for example, stop selecting and go click the Bold button above, etc).

I can confirm that going into Troubleshoot Mode "fixes" this issue, but without my extensions - and with tabs way up the top (WHY???) - I can't use FF, I'm afraid. Now I'm guessing it's some code in userChrome.css that FF89 doesn't like, rather than an extension, and that bit of code I found at least stopped the dragging of FF by elements above the web page, besides the title bar (but those are unimportant), so if someone knows the code I can add that will fix this major nuisance, or option in about:config I can change, please let me know. Many thanks in advance for your help.

[THE SOLUTION: it seems the fix to the tabs bar issue - which after the upgrade to FF89 wasn't up the top again, but at the bottom of the entire window, invisible, and unclickable - meant there was some duplicated or conflicting code from a previous edit, though it was never an issue before this. I edited the "TabsToolbar" section of userChrome.css with new code that put the tabs back below all the bars, and all was good. I should have realised something was amiss here because I actually selected the code in FF last night to paste into userChrome.css. So I went looking through the file for anything useful, and actually near the top I found my earliest fix for this tabs issue, being the line: "#TabsToolbar { position: absolute !important; bottom: 0 !important; width: 100vw !important; display: block !important; }" - it had never been commented out, and strangely enough never conflicted with all the revised TabsToolbar code I've used since (sadly, that's been changed many times - Mozilla seems totally committed to getting people to use tab at the top!). So while I've solved this, if anyone understands the reason behind that code causing this really strange issue of click-hold-drag initiating a drag of the entire window, please feel free to enlighten me. Cheers]
