I'm a LONG TIME T-Bird user - as far back as I can remember - and I never thought the day would come when I would be looking to ditch T-Bird, but the new version is SO HORRIBLE I am now seeking to ditch it.

Specifically, it is now NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE to send an email to more than one person.

It used to be easy - just hit TAB after putting in one address, and it opens another TO field. And it was super easy to change TO to BCC to CC or REPLY-TO or whatever.

Then some moron decides that they want to kill T-Bird by giving it such an impossibly difficult interface that nobody will ever want to use it!

What is going on here?

Why is it impossibly difficult to send email to more than one person?

I am sure I'm not the only person who ever wants to send email to more than one recipient!

IMPOSSIBLE TO USE!!!

screenshot: https://www.dropbox.com/s/mp8ja4vt5tf0t26/Screenshot%202020-10-27%2012.16.02.png?dl=0

Is there anybody that can recommend a different mail agent?

Again, I used to love T-Bird to death, but this new version is so horrible I can not get my work done, even if I had extra hours every day to spend clicking endlessly around this incredibly stupid and unusable interface.

PLEASE HELP!!!

I did a browser refresh, and when it was done, almost everything it was supposed to save was gone. "Firefox will save these items:

   Bookmarks
   Browsing and download history
   Passwords
   Cookies
   Web form auto-fill information
   Personal dictionary "

Bookmarks, gone. Home tabs, gone. Browsing and download history, gone. Cookies: spotty. Autofill; partly missing.

And a new tab is now completely blank (see attached image). I thought it might repopulate itself, but nope. Just blank.

All my home tabs were wiped, and I was able to put them back. But this outcome was unexpected. Some places I had to log back into; some I did not.

So I feel like I am now dealing with a broken browser, and not sure what to do about it. At least the buggy hangups and crashes seem to be fixed. Maybe.

edit: Also noticed I cannot make new bookmarks. Halp....

I wish firefox would add the capability for multirow tab bar and multirow bookmarks toolbar. It shouldn't be an addon that may or may not be supported in future firefox versions, it ought to be built right in. Sure we can hack it in (at least in this version), and i have done that, but that's not a really useful solution.

I don't understand why firefox makes it so difficult to stop websites from autoplaying videos. Case in point: fox news and fox business news web sites. They have that stupid pop up when you scroll down the page, so if the main video is blocked the popup ignores it and starts playing. The preferences->autoplay doesn't allow you to enter a site to block and clicking on the lock on the url bar doesn't work because the permissions line isn't clickable, so we are left to resort to about:config which also fails to block these sites. This is very frustrating and if anything will drive me to another browser its stuff like this.

Hello, I recently upgraded Firefox to the latest 82.0 (64-bits) version. I am quite sure that with that version a new problem appeared by which the Firefox windows have no border except the window title bar, and cannot be grabbed for resizing. I believe it has to do with Firefox because other windows doe not have this problem, and the firefox window has the menu "File|Edit|etc." inside the window title bar. The versions are: - Firefox see above - Compiz version : 1:0.9.12.3 - Ubuntu 16.04LTS - gtk2-engines-murrine : 0.98.2-0

Incidentally, when starting firefox on the cli, I receive the error messages copied below. Thanks for the great work, firefox must continue and grow. Regards, xgiannak

Sorry if this is the wrong place to post, but I have a little suggestion about this forum. I love helping people and often browse the page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/firefox?show=all&owner=mine to check if anyone has replied to discussions that I took part in. However, when I then click the link ## questions in the last 24 hours have no reply. Help solve them!, I am redirected to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/firefox?show=all&owner=mine&filter=recently-unanswered, which is always an empty list. Basically, the &owner=mine parameter is still present, but it should have been overriden by &owner=all. On mouse-over, I see that the link does include &owner=all but this does not seem forced as I still end up on a page where owner=mine.

While I think that this question is somewhat irrelevant to Firefox, contributors here should have experience with the site and therefore could help with meta issues.

Can someone provide a solution for autofill (both addresses and passwords) not working. And no, don't say "did you check or uncheck so and so - I've been writing CNC software interfaces for years and have little idea about setting up a system. Getting fed up with having to repeatedly log on and add the address over and over (I get the prompts to save). The save address "feature" RARELY works. Firefox "used" to be able to perform this feature - now it is becoming a buggy FAIL. I'm thinking it may be time to just give up, uninstall it, and move on to Chrome...
