My issue is the lack of a heads-up from Mozilla Thunderbird about the downside to upgrading (I use the term loosely) from 68 to 78. Where was the warning that the add-ons I was using would not work (and now, months later that there are STILL NO UPDATES to v78-compatible add-ons). I was not aware that there were profile and database changes that would occur making for problems for lots of users.

The forum is full of comments about these points so I'm not going to belabor with further feedback but I would like to emphasize that Thunderbird may very well have signed it's own obsolesence warrant for failing to take its customers base real needs into account. Fortunately for me a roll-back to 68 was easy since I had just done a full image backup.

I'm not really looking for "help" or a solution to a particular problem. But, respectfully, WTH were you thinking?

Today Thunderbird updated to version 78.2.2. After that, the application screen is just empty. All of my email folders are gone. The main menu items can be clicked, but nothing happens. E.g., I cannot access account settings or options.

Does anyone have a suggestion?

I have spent three days preparing an address list for a large mailing and created it within the 'contacts' section which I was able to access from any of my accounts. I can no longer find the address list and when I call up write in any account I only get one option - Address Book. I no longer get the 'contact' list or any other address lists which were sub-folders of the 'contacts' list. They are just not showing. How can I retrieve access to these address lists. I am approaching desperation!

I saw a post on this where they were instructed to go to safe mode and Viola! it works. That is fine, but it does not fix the problem.

My Firefox browser opens all links except what appears to be links from ads or forwarding links from a site to where something is being sold.

Whenever I click on one of these I get the, "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site." They open fine on Edge. Is there a setting on Firefox that is blocking these?

Hello, I have a new Raspberry Pi 400 running the standard Raspbian OS it comes with. I installed Thunderbird (latest) using Synaptic Package Manager. Thunderbird itself seems OK, but Lightning is missing. I use TB on other computers, and I read that Lightning now comes built-in (according to Debian forum -- RPi OS is based on Debian), but there's no sign of it. Moreover, when I go to Addons and try to load Lightning, the only versions listed are all marked as incompatible with this version of TB. I also went into Synaptic and installed the 'Lightning Transition Package', which appeared to get installed but has not made any difference. So far the Raspberry Pi's forum has been no help, other than to send me here. How the blazes do I install Lightning on a version of TB that is supposed to have it already?? Thanks.

These are the issues which I have:

- I close Thunderbird with many tabs open. When I reopen Thunderbird all the tabs are closed except for the Inbox. Previously the tabs remained open but since recently that is not the case.

- In my Inbox all e-mails from before 16-Nov-2020 are blank I can see the Subject, who they are from and their date and time. But when I highlight them they appear to be from the last legible sender, the title is shown from the last legible sender and their contents are blank. How can I restore them?

Not long ago I installed Malwarebytes. Since I had these problems I uninstalled this application. Yet the problems have not been resolved. What can I do about them? Thank you.

Howdy. Some pages won't open, although the URL is correct. Copying that URL will usually open in Edge. Also many pictures, and/or ads won't show, just the revolving circle, or broken picture icon, but again some wil show in the Edge. But I prefer to use FF if possible. I have tried disabling things like Duck Duck Go and FF security etc, etc, but maybe there is something I'm not aware of. At least one place (AlSears) said their pic is PDF, but other PDFs open. The following URL is Auckland Motorway cameras, and many of those do not open, but show the broken pic icon, but everything is fine in The Edge. https://www.aucklandmotorways.co.nz/

The following URL, the Upgrade link just has the circle running. https://store.alsearsmd.com/?s=LIFETIME#

New Zealand official Met Service weather, if I change from 7 Days to 48 hours, or vice versa, FF completely seizes up and I have to End Task in Task Manager. https://www.metservice.com/towns-cities/locations/auckland

I'm not aware of any AdBlockers Plugins and extensions shown below.

Any thoughts, anyone?

I am using the Firefox iOS browser on my iPad Pro. I cannot access Black Boards, Blue Button, Konekti session. When I click Join session in the browser and a new tab opens the browser is just blank and is not responsive. There is no error message stating issues or anything. Why could this be happening and how can it be fixed?

Maybe there's a feature or extension to do this ? Long time Tbird user. I have hundreds of mostly defunct collected email addresses. I won't use 99% of them again, but afraid to delete in case I might need one. They overpopulate the To: field when I start entering. I have a small personal address book, but those hits often come up AFTER the old collected ones. I have to look through. I'd like to archive 99% of these some way such that they don't appear in the To: field. I actually moved the old ones to a new address book that I called "Old Collected Addresses", but that did not help.

Like the title says but first some context Since the horrible android browser REDESIGN this has happened, never before, im using the latest version and this has happened with every update since that unneeded and unwanted NEW firefox came out Before i could have up to 60 tabs in normal navigation, and the same amount in private, watch videos and animations at least ten tabs of those on each browsing section, the worst that could happen eas all private tabs would close and that was on rare cases Now it (closing)tends to happen 3 days or so, no matter how many on normal navigation or even private but the recurring thing is, opening videos sometimes work, but sometimes the entire browser crashes and with each crash all normal tabs dissapear as well and since you removed so many options including about:blank and other abouts that j knea how to use to recover pages, now is simply an entire session GONE and this has happenes 3 entire times already, the first time it happened i lost months of browsing i had prior to the dreaded update, they were gone and since, i try to use even less the browser, but is the only one with addon support(same addons i installed firefox years ago on android and guess what, none of them were active when the redesign installed the first time or worked and still the crash happened, so if none of your technicians can provide anything other than the boiler plate reaponse of " please update to the most recent version" (which both already are, firefox and android system) "disable addons" which they were the first crash, and reinstall(which i did when i tried to migrate to opera before i realized i can't install a good adblocker on their android version), then DO NOT BOTHER on answering(also, even webm format as well as many others seem to crash it JUST FINE)

I have several Gmail accounts. I set one up as a full POP3 and SMTP new account in TB. Both incoming and outgoing work just fine.

The second account I only entered as a new sender in the "OUTGOING SERVER (SMTP) SETTINGS". That one doesn't show up in the list of Write> choices.

Do I have to create a full POP3 and SMTP account for each Gmail account in order to use them for outgoing mail?

I have inbound emails that, when I open them to read, they are blank except that there is an attachment called "attachment.html". If I open the attachment called attachment.html, I see an html page in a browser as a local page. What causes this to happen? Can I get Thunderbird to just open the content in the email rather than seeing a blank screen and having to then open the attachment?

I hate the "This time, search with" in the URL bar. When I want to search, I use the Search bar for that. I don't need extra icons that I'm not going to use taking up space in the URL bar. I've seen it suggested that they can be removed in the Search options page. But when I've tried that, it also removes them from the Search bar.

Here's what I want: for the URL bar to only have space for a URL, no "This time, search with" nonsense, but the Search bar left completely intact, with all the search engines I use.

I need to know how to get the browser back to its normal functionality. I cannot right click on pretty much anything without it opening something in a new tab. It's infuriating and I can't find the answer on google. Does anyone have any solution? It breaks my workflow to the point where I am considering switching bowers. Have happily been using Firefox for 10 years without this problem. Reinstalling does nothing.

I think the real problem is that it opens the little context menu and then immediately clicks the first option. For example if I right-click a misspelled word it just fixes it automatically.

I am just wondering why FireFox occasionally becomes slow to load web pages. On these occasions, restarting Firefox fixes the problem immediately.

Example, I was just loading the same page repeatedly because of some work I am doing. After about 15 minutes of slow response times, I restarted FireFox and immediately, the page loaded very quickly as usual.

You can see the page where this was occurring at this url: https://legacy-systems.biz/demo/demo.html

Any information etc. would be appreciated immensely.
