So, I received version 79.0.5 for Android. Without disrespecting all the fine folks and hard work that went into it, I have to say "Its a mess, not remotely ready for release".

I appreciate the extra tracking protection.

Other "features", not so much.

Is it faster? I have a slow, old device, so one would think an improvement in speed would be noticeable. It's not.

It has new features. But one cannot control them. For example 1. The home screen/page has changed. Firefox has populated it with some things I previously pinned, and added some other things of it's choosing. Like Microsoft does. OK, but where are the previous things that I carefully pushed onto that home screen/page? The last time Firefox changed things I had to adapt to get my home screen/page setup how I like, now it's done it again. It *IS* like Microsoft, trashing my settings whenever they choose. 2. We have Collections. Good idea. But. They cannot be re-ordered. And items inside the collection cannot be re-ordered. The feature is just not ready for release. 3. Log press on a link produces a popup menu that does a weird floppity flop before the stabilizing. 4. Two finger zoom on a page is a disaster. Hard to control, suddenly reverts to the previous state. Again, simply not ready for release. 5. Help has no About. How does one find the version? Answer: from the home screen/page, press the three dot menu icon, press Help (getting one to a Firefox for Android Support page), now press the three dot menu again, press Settings, scroll wa-a-ay down to the bottom, press About Firefox. In testing this "feature" I found that the Settings menu is available on any page that is open EXCEPT the home page/screen. Have I mentioned that it's not ready for release? It's not ready for release.

Sorry to be the bearer of the bad news.

I just downloaded Thunderbird last night. I have two issues.

I followed the instructions to create a Global inbox in order to keep all of my inboxes one one page. When I get to the "Inbox for different account " in the advanced settings there is no option for this.

Also I cannot find any directions to migrated my current inboxes or folders to Thunderbird? The old program I am trying to get away from is Incredimail.

Sorry If I have not included everything you need. Please let me know if I can supply any needed information. Thanks, Rick

I just installed the esr version of Firefox. I did not think that I would lose all my bookmarks, add-on, etc. Is there a way to revert back to the standard version with all my old data? Or in looking at the profiles I see a default profile, a default-esr profile, and a default-release profile. This latter profile seems to have my old data when I open the folders and look around. However, when I try to open that profile in new window it says something about opening an old version and losing data and creating a new profile. When I do that, I still get a fresh browser with none of my data.

I am system administrator for a surveillance system consisting of 7 servers: 2 of these are controller and backup and 1 is archive, 4 are actually recording cameras for review; and five workstations for review and real-time.

I recently discovered my archive was sending error messages, cause found and corrected, but I suddenly thought it would be nice to use the software's error reporting to e-mail errors or reports. The system does not touch the internet and it is prohibited except for short term connections I must document.

Is there a freeware e-mail server and client (for 7 servers and 1 workstation) I can use to build a reporting system? I am not an IT guy but everything I see and my one attempt to make it happen, lead me to think I am asking too much or understanding too little. The Thunderbird package looks like a definite maybe. My surveillance software is Avigilon and my servers run Win 7 or Win Server 16, my client PCs are Win 7 or Win 10.

This is a question for those very familiar with Lubuntu, Thunderbird, and Virtualbox.

Host machine is Kubuntu 20.04. I'm setting up a Virtualbox Lubuntu 18.04 VM in which to run Thunderbird as a POP client. Mail must be stored on a network drive for backup. I can see two ways to accomplish this: (A) Run the VM locally, but with all of the VM's files stored on a the network drive, and otherwise set up Thunderbird in its default configuration to store the profile in the VM. (B) Run and store the VM locally, but with the Thunderbird profile on a network-located Virtualbox shared folder.

I strongly prefer (B), because I wish to run the VM from an auto-restored snapshot, which restores to a previously "frozen" state on each startup. This gives a faster startup, restoring the VM to an already booted state, and also provides better stability and security. Yes, I know the VM still needs to be regularly updated and a new snapshot taken. This would also allow a duplicate VM to open the same network-located profile from any machine on the network (but, of course, only one copy at any time).

What I don't know is what data, if any, Thunderbird still stores locally, even when the profile is stored in the shared folder. While all configuration would be preserved, all local data will be lost on each VM shutdown.

Questions:

1) Is (B) practical? Are there any show-stoppers, such as local data which cannot be located in or with the profile in the shared folder? 2) If practical, is anyone currently running a similar configuration and willing to share their hard-learned knowledge? 3) If no one is or is able to admit they are running a similar configuration, all assistance in creating a step-by-step setup guide, in excruciatingly painful detail, would be appreciated.
