I just upgraded to ver 78 and can no longer download messages from my yahoo (ATT) account. I get a message that sending my password did not succeed. I am still able to send messages, and I've gone into options and verified that my passwords are still correct. My server settings are;

POP Mail Server pop.att.yahoo.com Port 995 fall072@att.net SSL/TLS Normal password

Don't know if this matters, but ATT made a change a while back requiring a 'Secure mail key' which changed my smtp password, but this is also still correct in my settings. The link below describes this change https://www.att.com/esupport/article.html#!/email-support/KM1240462?gsi=6ka96l

If no one has a fix for this, is there a way I can download ver 68 and revert back? Any help would be greatly appreciated, Woody

If I upload a file for an email attachment, google drive upload, etc when I first select "browse" for the file it opens File Explorer in the Desktop directory.

How do I change that to default to the directory I always work from, say for example C:\tmp.

I've seen numerous questions about this with answers that it opens the last directory used, which is true if I do it multiple times, but if I close Firefox and restart it, when I select "browse" it again defaults to the Desktop.

I've also seen answers saying it is controlled by the site being uploaded true. Again this is absolutely not true. I do everything from C:\tmp. Downloads, uploads, editing, searching, etc. And every time I upload a file after starting Firefox fresh after a reboot, again, it defaults to the Desktop even though I'm on the same site (gmail) I was when I last uploaded a file.

As far as the answers saying that was the last directory used, that is false. I do not use the desktop for anything. Not storing icons, not downloading files, not uploading files. I have never uploaded a file from Desktop in my life.

So can anyone answer this without saying 'last directory used' or 'controlled by the website'?

Hi Firefox,

I have some trouble with Firefox Sync. Since I use 2 laptop 1 month ago my active login always close and must to repeat login. My Firefox setting has auto clear browsing history after I close the browser but I uncheck the active login button. Before that I never meet with this case, even when I use 3 more device.

I have 2 email accounts associated with thunderbird.

I removed one of them. When removing it, it asked me if i wanted to remove all data. I did not select the check box, meaning I did not want it to remove the email messages in the local folder.

Now, the messages are gone. Why?

I would like to know if the tags (important, work, personal...) applied to messages are stored locally only, or are they synced via IMAP with the email server like the read/unread status. That is, when I tag a message in Thunderbird, does my e-mail provider see this?

Today I moved from Windows 10 to Ubuntu 20.04, in part on the back of assurance got from reading this recentish thread on saving old mail data when on Windows and later re-activating it once Ubuntu was installed:

https://superuser.com/questions/1550634/moving-thunderbird-email-setup-from-win10-to-linux-ubuntu

Trouble is, I cannot ¨see" any sign of the old mail folders and mail accounts after following the above procedure. Of course, I can re-create the existing mail accounts and start with empty mailboxes - but I don want to lose all my emails since 2006.

I tried searching through your forums archives for advice on this migration - which must be common with developers who need a Linux distro on their work machine - but found nothing so far.

Any suggestions welcome.

The developers are killing TB. They don't care about users or add-on developers. They said recently that this sort of problem was unavoidable as they were making a major update (around version 60 something) but it happens every single time.

Without add-ons, TB is just very average. It's the add-ons that make it great but they are too thick to understand that.

Thunderbird Version 78.4.0 Win10 64bit

Hello.

I set an Master password in Thunderbird. When i start thunderbird - it asks me the password and then starts. so far - so good. If i hit "cancel" - thunderbird starts normal - showing me all the Boxes ( inbox / outbox...). i can read the mail and can send messages. When I'm doing some sending (pictures) via explorer ( send to mail recipient) - then the small Box with the question for the Master password opens - but also Thunderbirds opens a Mail and i can send that mail without typing in the master password. After that - Thunderbird opens in normal mode - showing all Boxes ( inbox / outbox...). Still there is that small little window - asking me for the master password.

I thought - without the master password - thunderbird will refuse to start / work.

Password management doesn't work in firefox for almost a year, with the latest updates. In the latest versions of Firefox it is impossible to manage passwords. If I write it wrong then it is impossible to change it. If I take off autofill, it keeps autofill and wrong. If I delete it, it keeps automatically filling it wrong. A disaster. Again, I'll have to use Chrome as my default browser again.I have already tried unsuccessfully to reset and reinstall firefox but nothing changes.
