Until today I would use a command line like:

Applications/Thunderbird.app/Contents/MacOS/thunderbird -profile /TargetPATH/4t8rz46z.default/

to start Thunderbird using the profile given in the TargetPATH.

But after todays update 78.2.2, this feature does not work on my mac MacOS 10.15.6

When using this command line, thunderbird opens but without any content.

How to do now a command line start of Thunderbird on a target profile?

Disaster upgrading to TB 78 on MacOS. Spinner on startup and then told that the app memory was full, and that TB was not responding

I have two Mac OS machines. On one it was easy, I clicked to update TB and it switched from 68 to 78 as a completely normal update, nothing special, and without any problem. Perfect.

However, on the other, I did exactly the same but all I get is the spinning baseball. I tried re-installing TB but still get the spinning baseball. I force quit TB and restarted but still get the spinning baseball. I left it spinning for half and hour and then was told that the app memory was full and that TB was not responding. So I currently have no access at all to any emails, stored or otherwise. And cannot access any menus or anything.

Complete disaster: any ideas how to save the day?

I need to transfer my FF profile from a Sony to Lenovo. The hardest challenge should be moving from a Win 7 to a Win 10, but I'm not really worried about that. The huge problem is that for almost a week FF stopped pushing web notifications of any sort of any of the platforms I've authorized. Important (?) note: randomly a couple days ago the notifications started working for no reason, I wasn't doing anything in specific, just working. I took screenshots to see if the debugging - runtime: about:debugging#/runtime/this-firefox#serviceworkers and saw changes here and there but nothing that could shed light as to why this happened. Example: if the notifications working were all running or stopped but saying fetching or not fetching.. there weren't coincidences that IO could find anyway. I shut down the laptop, the next day the notifications were gone again and have been gone ever since. I think yesterday or the day before I downloaded FF again and ran it, but I don't think that did anything. I didn't uninstall it, I wasn't sure if doing so could worsen the problem in such a way I wasn't gonna be able to open FF at all. I know nothing about computers, any suggestion would be appreciated. I don't dare to move nor transfer anything to the new laptop afraid to keep having the same problem or worse in there too, not to mention I'm not familiar with it so I might have an ever harder time finding a work-around that could make something that doesn't work, work. My doubt is: whatever it is that is causing this defect, if I transfer this profile to the new laptop, will it continue to happen in there as well? Is it possible it's something wrong within the profile itself and if so what can I do to transfer all this data to the new laptop? I really need his profile. Is there anything I can do to know where this problem is coming from? Am I causing the problem unwillingly, but most importantly, will this keep happening in the Lenovo? Is there any way to troubleshoot this specific issue to make sure wtv it is, won't be transferred within the profile to the new laptop so it won't fail in there as well? Please let me know if you need more information, any tips would be appreciated

Hi

I have TB 78.2.2. I'm new to it. I have set up about 20 emails using POP accounts and a Global Inbox and Local Folders. I don't want IMAP.

All of them have the following setup: - Check for New Messages at startup - Check for new messages every 2minutes - Automatically download new messages

I also made sure that the "Include this server when getting new mail" is checked in ADVANCED menu.


However, I'm not receiving emails unless I manually click on "Get messages" at the left top corner. Am I missing something??

Thanks

Where are commands to minimize, restore down (resize window) and close Thunderbird 68.12.0?

With update to TB 68.12.0 - commands in the upper right corner to minimize, restore down (resize window) and close are GONE! This makes Thunderbird totally useless. Have closed and opened TB now 3 times today, with same result. The only way to recover the missing upper right corner commands is to grab TB and move it around on the page, until the commands are visible. What seems to have happened is the entire TB screen is around 1 inch wider than my 23" computer screen. How do we fix this, so TB is normal size (as it's been for the past 7 years I've been using it)? This is happening on Dell Desktop computer, with Windows 7 Professional.

Thank you.

First I have to say that I absolutely HATE HATE HATE how Mozilla breaks everything with every upgrade now. Hate it. It feels like getting bent over by IE all over again.

I upgraded from 68.something to 78.3 esr and now my tabs are teeny tiny and the one that is selected gets bigger and leaks into the web page (see pic). I already fixed the "tabs on top of everything" issue that the upgrade introduced, but now this.

How do I make my regular tabs and pinned tabs bigger like they were before? And stop the current tab from leaking over the bottom boundary into the web page?

Hello everybody.

I'm experiencing a behaviour of Thunderbird different than usual (I use it from the first version). I don't save e-mail passwords and there are no saved password in the password manager. With previous TB versions, I used to type password once for each account's POP/IMAP server (incoming messages) and once for each account's SMTP server (outgoing). With 68.12.0, it seems that password are cached for a limited amount of time and I need to retype them more times during session, but moreover it asks for password only if I click on an IMAP folder: this means that accounts which are setup to look for new messages each 10 minutes, silently fail to look for new messages because password isn't cached and there is no request for password; so I think that I have no new messages while instead there are a lot of them! This happens with different servers from different providers. I've looked in the release notes but find nothing, looked in the community but there are mainly issues with saved passwords. Any advise?

Thank you. Matteo

Hello, So this is pretty much it. Any youtube menu (notifications, the menu when you click on your picture - or channel picture-, the menu to save on a playlist) isn't working properly. Even if I like a video, and reload the page, the like disappear. Only on youtube, only on firefox (tested on other browsers and mobile it's ok). For example, on notifications I click and it keeps loading. On the "Save" button in order to add to a playlist, I click and nothing happens. So it's really hard to change accounts on youtube, for example. And this started after the last update (in the last two days). I already tried to start in safe mode, to turn off every extension, antivirus, clear the firefox cache, and it keeps hapening. Windows 10, 64 bits. Firefox 80

Similar to this article, "https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-download-or-save-files" I am unable to download any files via browser. I am up to date on versioning (Windows 10, v81.0 64-bit), and I tried all of the steps in the article.

I have also tried resetting the "security.dialog enable_delay" value (it was correct at 1000) to 0 and downloads worked again, but setting it back to 1000 (or even 500) and the problem returns.

I also noticed that whether or not I have the General Option set to "use this folder" or "ask each time", I get the same dialog box and the OK button is greyed out.

For the last several days I have woken up to see firefox has installed itself onto my PC in german with no UAC notifications, no history of where it is coming from(from what I could find). Each time I have seen it, I have uninstalled it and searched through the computer to find any related files or folders left behind to remove but it still comes back. I saw an answered question of a similar problem but it did not solve my issue. I have run several scans with my antivirus and anti malware but none of them have come up with any results before or after the removal of the program. There has been no changes to any of my system or security settings I can find, no new downloads or updates since before, during or after this has begun.

I am hoping to get some help in solving this so that it does not appear unwanted again.

Hi guys !

I have updated the 78.2.2 version and deeply upset having done so :( i have been using this mailing system 24/7 being my bread and butter but seen a lot of defaults on this version.

firstly in my address book the lists that contain lots of recipients <<search is not working>> and when i scroll up or down the pointer the <screen>> goes snow white !!!!

secondly i used to drag and drop an existing contact from my address book into my several lists this is not longer working , i get the stop signal and i have to do it now manually.

thirdly when a sender was not existing in my address book i used to open up a new contact with his details, and particularly his mail address. then on the incoming mail screen the name of sender that i have had added in my book was by default changed and appeared in the correspondence column. now this is not happing longer :(

guys i love thunderbird and i cannot live with anything else have done so much work on it.

is there going to be a new release that will fix all those bugs ?? i am sure there are more to be discovered

thank you all #keepupthe goodwork

Good morning Mozilla Community,

I have a question regarding the behaviour when opening a .pdf file from web email. We are using FF 68.11.0esr on a terminal server environment and we customize it via config file.

When opening a .pdf or even office docs, Firefox asks what to do with this file. When selected open with Adobe Reader and check mark that it should do this from now on with all pdf files it doesn't do that. The next time when I try to open a .pdf the same dialog window appears again but it remembered the check mark. But it should open the file directly in Adobe Reader without showing the dialog window. I tried to do it in "safe mode" and even "refreshed" Firefox but no improvement.

Does anyone might know why Firefox is not remembering my setting for opening files? See attached screenshots. Thanks in advance for your support in this matter. It is much appreciated.

Hi, PDF File handling has recently changed - For the worse for me and it's become really frustrating.

When I right click a PDF file link and select "open link in new tab", why does Firefox then ask me how I want to treat the file? I just asked it to open the file in a new tab, so it should be obvious what I want to do - asking again is illogical.

Not only that, before the file handling dialog box, it opens a new tab next to the tab I'm in and then closes it when the dialog box appears - When I select the unnecessary "open in Firefox" (I just asked it to open in a new tab), it now creates a new tab at the END of my tabs and steals focus.

I also get the file handling dialog box when I ask to "save link as", when logically I should just get the save location dialog box.

How do I get the old behaviour back?

Thanks folks

The official instructions on Thunderbird 68.12 state:

Configuring Filelink To use Filelink, you must first create a new account (or configure an existing account) with an online storage service provider.

   At the top of the Thunderbird window, click the Tools menu and select Options, or click the menu button fx57menu and choose Options.
   Select the Attachments panel and choose the Outgoing tab. 

Sounds easy, but my 'Options' menu has no 'Attachments' panel to select, thus no 'Outgoing' tab to select.

In last couple of the most recent versions of both Firefox and Firefox Enterprise, Access files with ACCDB extensions will not open from a link on an html page. Basically, it will show an error in firefox. It can be saved to the local desktop if we set the option to do so, but we would like to be able to open it only. The file is on a network. We've also tried opening the file in several other browsers (chrome, edge, etc.) and get the same results in all of them except IE. That remains the only browser we can open an Access file in with a link. Microsoft Word and Excel files appear to still be opening fine.
