Hi, I have a disaster situation. I backed up my profile and then I wiped my computer running Ubuntu 20.04. I replaced it with Ubuntu 24.04. Now my profile seems to not be compatible with the Firefox installation on Ubuntu 24.04.

I followed this official instructions: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles

I put my old profile in the ~/snap/firefox/common/.mozilla/firefox/ folder and I set the correct values in profiles.ini. But sadly when I start Firefox all my passwords, extensions and history are not there. I lost everything.

I'm super desperate. Please tell me I can fix this somehow. Why is the official documentation lying?

Pop3 account not working

I have just added another gmail account to Thunderbird. I'm using the portable version 115.12.2 (64-bit) on Windows 10 Instead of just seeing the Local Folders and a few folders I've made myself, I can see the Imap folder I think it is, for the email account just created. However, it's supposed to be Pop3 and everything works from local folders. I've compared the Gmail settings against an existing account and they are identical. I've also compared the smtp settings for the new account with an already established one, and once again all settings are identical. Yet for some reason this account appears as a main folder underneath the Local folder. I'm stumped (yet again) and am sick of wasting so much time to try and fix and getting nowhere. I'd love some help please to suggest what's gone wrong?

Update: sry, nevermind, I found it right after posting this obviously stupid question:D hi, This might be a noob question, but I didn't find the answer in the FAQ. Recently a lot of my messages went into the spam folder - for example messages sent by my partner with whom I have more than a 10 years correspondance. How can I mark these messages not spam? I only found "not junk" in the faqs and those answers are not really helpful at the moment. Thank you, Tímea

I am on a Windows 10 Pro PC 64 Bit OS with 16GB of memory, running Bit Defender Total Security. I have used Firefox for many years and have never had a problem The browser is version 128.0.2 (64-bit). A few days ago in the application menu told me there was an update and said to install it because it couldn't check for updates. I downloaded and installed it three times now, but the problem still persists. My Bit Defender also keeps popping up messages telling me "firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an unmatching security certificate to aus5.mozilla.org. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since the used certificate was issued for a different web address than the targeted one." I have had over 2000 of those messages in the past few days.

I have never had an issue like this before. Is there a glitch in the most recent update? What can I do to fix it outside of resetting my browser, which logs me out of my google accounts and causes me to not be able to get back into them.

Hi

I am using beta build 129.0b3 of Thunderbird, don't think the issue I'll describe is related to the beta build tho. I am using SpamAssasin to identify spam type mails. I'll include a screenshot to best illustrate my concerns...(attached)

Even tho I continually go into my spam folder, I seem to veyr much need to do this, so many of my regualr mails now end up there. I right click on each to Mark - Mark not as junk and yet over the days of use they are still being sent to that junk folder. As an exampl the ones from Meta are receipts for virtual games bought from their store. Several days back I marked those as not junk, the header of the mail rarely changes, but still they are being sent to my junk folder.

Within Outlook, on line, those mails are meant to be diverted to my Meta folder. If I was to go back to using Outlook, avoided opening it for quite some time now, I would expect to find those mails within that folder, and the Amazon ones within a Amazon folder. That is due to rules created for their placement within such folders.

I guess my question is two part.....

why do such mails seem to persist in being marked as spam..? Secondly is there a ways to ensure they end up in their intended folders..?

by right clicking on them now they ar ethe nsent to my general inbox, including the BBC type.

Is there no such thing as a safe senders list tha tcan include omains and indivudal people / companies etc..?

Many thanks

Background tabs triggering master password popups

I have a lot of tabs open, and I don't know which are responsible for the popups. Previously, I'd get 2-3 unexpected popups per day (that were not triggered by navigation in visible tabs), but since yesterday, every ~10min I'm getting 2 popups right after each other.

How do I find out what tab is triggering them?

Besides the annoyance, I find it worrying that firefox apparently "intends" to input login details into background tabs - if I had entered my master password previously, I wouldn't even notice that the password store had been accessed.

It would be really nice if the master password popup had a button to view the triggering tab (and perhaps highlight the fields that would have been filled after unlocking), but until that happens, I really need some way to locate the problematic tab(s)...
