Greetings,

I have been using Mozilla Thunderbird for more than a decade, on multiple Operating Systems, and this is my first post in this great community. Overall, long time Mozilla user and a fan!

Goal My objective is to keep only last N days of emails in order to save disk space. I would like to set up 2 gmail accounts.

Expected Behavior Right after setting up the email account, if I change settings from Synchronization & Storage page to download emails from only most recent N days, Thunderbird should respect that setting. Most importantly, this setting should only limit the scope of downloading emails, and under any circumstances, should not delete emails on the remote server.

Actual Behavior Right after setting up the email account, Thunderbird aggressively starts downloading emails regardless its size or age. If I change settings to sync most recent N days, I still see old emails. These old emails do not away - even after restating the application or even restating the computer.

FWIW - I might be using Mozilla Thunderbird 68.8.1 (32-bit) portable, in Windows 7.

Any email I've tried sending today is not going through and I get the message listed below after Thunderbird stops trying to send it. I've retried and even tried writing to different email address. All produce the same message.

Up to this morning I've not had any problems sending emails.

How do I resolve this? Thank you.

Sending of the message failed. The message could not be sent because the connection to Outgoing server (SMTP) smtp.verizon.net was lost in the middle of the transaction. Try again.

YouTube videos (both embeded and on website) seem to load (I can see thumbnails when I hover cursor over timeline) but will throw "An error occurred. Please try again later." when I click play.

Youtube debug info: "errorCode": "fmt.decode", "errorMessage": "An error occurred. Please try again later.", "wr": "GENERIC_WITHOUT_LINK"

This also happens in Private Browsing and Safe mode (addons disabled) in Firefox 75.0 and 76.0.1 (different user profiles) This issue does not occur in other browsers I have installed (Chromium, Iridium, Google C, and Pale Moon)

Everything was working fine a few hours ago, I have made no hardware, software or config changes.

I want to change some of my bookmark favicons. I went online and found a few recommendations for extensions that purport to do that, but when I tried to access them, I got "This page does not exist", which I assume to mean that those extensions are obsolete. When I tried to find a solution on the support forum, I got "1900" responses. I went through about 50 of them and none had anything to do with changing favicons!

There are a couple of YouTube videos that address this problem, but I can't understand the speech of the authors, and, from what I did understand, the process advocated is complex. I assume this is a simple task. Am I wrong? Just looking for a simple list of instructions.

Mail addressing / turning off auto-complete

When composing email the auto-fill pulls from Cardbook. I don't have any emails in the "email section" of each contact I store all emails and phone numbers in the Notes section of each contact since its not unusual to have multiple emails and phone numbers for a contact I keep them in the Notes so i can make notes next to them. I have been doing this forever.

When I begin to type an email apparently it matches the text I am typing with all data in the contacts Notes section not the "email section" (which are blank.) What I end up with in the auto-fill drop down menu is massive chaos. I have 900 contacts give or take 15 since they fluctuate.

I went into Tools/Options/Composition/Addressing and unchecked all boxes it made no difference. I checked the box Directory Server / None thinking i can fool it into pulling from a non-server but that didn't do anything either. My contacts are synced online with Fruux.

I dread having to compose email. The only way I found to stop the auto-fill is uncheck the address book in the left panel in Cardbook but then i cant search I would need to keep checking and unchecking the address book before and after sending mail. I opened two windows with cardbook opened twicw tried using one window for email with the adjacent cardbook tab address book unchecked and another windows just for cardbook and calendar functions address book boxes checked but when i checked or unchecked the address book in one window it changed the other window as well so that doesn't work. I would rather type addresses in manually or copy and paste directly from each contact if i can just figure a way to turn off auto-complete. Any suggestions? Thanks.

At first I thought this was an issue with Windows 10, but then I realized it really wasn't. I am using the Dark Mode in Windows 10. When I right click on the desktop the dialog box renders in darker colors. Also, most all the programs I use take on the same colors, though I believe it is relative to the program and it is relative to Firefox. Consequently, when I am in the Firefox browser and I right click and open a dialogue box in Firefox, the colors are a white background with a black font, on every web site.

I then remembered the colors option in Firefox and went to options, fonts & colors and changed the colors to a black font on a white page. I also ticked on Use System Colors as I have done in previous versions of Firefox & Windows. However, they won't take, and my dialog boxes continue to have a white background with a black font.

Thank you.
