Hi, realise this is not probably a Firefox issue,but would appreciate any advice. Of late when i select "Copy" a photo sent to me via email ,it only copies as a thumbnail not the actual photo, it used to to copy ok but not now for some reason. My workaround is to select "Copy image as" which then opens up a droplist from MyPC,give it a name and it copies ok,but its a bit long winded .

Hi I'm using Thunderbird 78.7.1 (64 bit) on Linux Mint 20. I have a local NAS which holds the .ics calendar file so it can be accessed by both my Linux and my wife's Windows systems. Recently the Windows PC has failed to store the NAS logon user/password info even though when inputting the details again we tick the "Use password manager to save the password". As of this morning my Linux PC has started doing the same. This is NOT connected to the passwords for email addresses as the email system still works fine. Any help suggestions would be appreciated Thanks Dave

Hi, FF Community,

It seems that almost every time I change to another screen, I get the "FF is not your current browser, would you like to make FF your ...."

I suspect that Microsoft Edge s the culprit, but but what ever I try to remove Edge from my computer, nothing works.

Does anyone have a fix for this maddening problem?

Please note, that I am not a computer whiz, so esoteric terminology leaves me scratching my head with a hind foot.

I have triple checked my computer for a virus, and it is clean.

Thank you, Nick M.

Today I tried to update Firefox through the Help/About Firefox dialog. The update from 85 to 86 appeared to go fine. I got the Click to Restart Firefox and complete Update button, and the application restarted when I clicked the button. However, opening the Help/About Firefox dialog again displays the message "Firefox is being updated by another instance". It is not, so it appears that this update has not completed correctly, and, in this state, I suspect that further updates won't work either. Has anyone else seen this issue?

Latest version of TB creates multiple instances when run

Hi, A friend asked to have a look at her copy of TB running on Windows 10 as she was having difficulty accessing individual messages and was unable to create a new message. When I switched on her PC today and clicked TB it updated automatically to 78.8.0.7718 but when it started it seemed to be taking a long time to settle down and allow access to individual messages. I checked Windows Task Manager and saw there were 35 instances of TB. I confirmed this by right clicking the TB icon on the taskbar. I could cycle through individual instances of TB. Thinking it might be something to do with the update process I closed all instances and restarted the PC. I started TB and it loaded ok but was very slow in accessing individual messages. After 60-90 seconds (I didn't time it accurately) something started to create additional instances of TB. I checked the Task Manager and again it had created an additional 34 instances and was showing 35 TBs. I killed off the extra 34 instances individually and was then able to use the remaining instance normally. I didn't tale screen shots but I can. Does this sound like a TB or Windows problem? It's a 32-bit Windows running on a 64-bit PC. TIA Joe

I'm going through thousands of old emails-- looking to ID key contacts I worked with in various companies.

When I do a search on "@companydomain.com" I may get 50 different contacts in the People section on left. While I see a number showing how many messages they were associated with, I see no way to sort on that number.

Does this exist?

Not the end of the world if not, but would definitely be a time saver. And if it doesn't, perhaps I can throw it on the list of desired features?

Thanks much!

I probably committed one of the biggest mistakes of my life.

A customer of mine had me to reinstall her laptop from Win 8.1 to Win 10 while strongly asking me to keep all her emails. So I carefully backed up her TB profile folder to a usb drive, did a fresh Windows install on her laptop (deleting old partitions and creating only one partition instead) and after installing the newest Thunderbird I restored the aforementioned TB profile to its place. But - it didn't work...

It turned out that I happened to back up the wrong TB profile folder. Instead of the one in ...\username\AppData\Roaming I have successfully backed up the one in ...\username\AppData\Local folder. This seems to be some kind of cache folder of Thunderbird since it has such named subfolders inside (see pic). It's size is ~338M though so I suppose something must be there... Also, it is likely that the old TB version was (much) earlier than that of the latest one.

Is there any chance to extract/restore all/some emails from this cache folder?

  • The email account in question is of POP3 type, it is supplied by her ISP. I have her user/pass and also the proper server addresses to set up the account again, so that is not a problem, only the emails (especially the ones in Inbox) are important.
  • I have also consulted with a technician at the ISP but without any luck. The POP3 mailbox and TB's default way of working leaves no emails in the account itself. Even if they had a backup of the account let's say from last week, there would be probably nothing in it.

In Mac Thunderbird 78, what in the world is Window > Sending Message all about? I sometimes have several of these under my Window item in the menubar. I click on one of them, and nothing happens. It's been hours since I sent any messages, so TB surely isn't sending any messages. I restart TB, and they all go away.
