The designers seem to be intent on making this as painful as possible. You'd think you could just open them, at least in text form. Wasn't that possible before? I can in Notepad if I want to look at hundreds of pages of gibberish that would take days to copy and paste over. In my updated Firefox it offers a Restore function but to do that I have to wipe out all my existing Bookmarks. Who dreams of this stuff? Why would anyone sane want to do that?

I'm migrating to a new computer and from Windows 10 to W11. I have successfully exported/imported the contacts using the export tool, but cannot figure out how to ex/im the calendar. I am using a SanDisk drive to move the files. Both systems have TBird 102.1.2 (64-bit).

Please give step-by-step instructions to do the calendar (only) ex/im. I do not use the Mail feature.

Recently unable to initiate Facebook Messenger Voice Chat via FB website in Firefox

For the past few weeks I've been using Facebook's voice chat function to stay in touch with family. I did this using a dual boot laptop with, Ubuntu Linux 20.04.4 and Firefox 103, and Windows 10 with Firefox 101.1. I use the linux side 99.9% of the time.

I'd initiate a call by clicking on the FB Messenger icon, clicking on the name of the person I wanted to talk with, then clicking on the small phone handset icon. This would bring up a popup window with a picture of the other person, and the sound of a phone ringing followed by the other person answering my call.

This stopped working late last week (Thursday Aug 11th, I believe). Instead of a popup with the ringing phone, I began getting a popup with the message "Something went wrong. Try restarting Firefox or restarting your computer. For more troubleshooting suggestions, visit our Help Center. If the issue persists please let us know." I've attached a screenshot of the message.

This led me to a series of troubleshooting steps with no success: - clearing my browser cache and cookies - made sure my microphone was available for FB to use and was not muted - rebooting my laptop - doing a Firefox "Refresh", which creates a new Firefox profile while removing browser extensions and customizations - logging into a 2nd seldom used linux account I have on the same laptop and trying to initiate a voice chat in Firefox (no luck) - dual booting to Windows 10 and trying it with Firefox 101.1 (no success) - I also tried this on an older desktop pc running Ubuntu 16.04 and Firefox 88 (!). Also, no success and the exact same message as seen in the screenshot.

What I can also tell you is that in Linux I was able to initiate a FB voice chat call using the Brave and Chrome browsers, and in Windows was able to successfully initiate a call using MS Edge and Brave.

Based on this, it seems to be either a Firefox issue, or the nice folks at FB changed something that trips up only Firefox. Again, other browsers on two different OS platforms and a separate computer allow me to make these voice calls without issue.

I'd be glad to provide more information if you need it. I apologize if this was long winded, but I wanted to share as much detail as I could. Thank you very much for your time, and don't hesitate to contact me if I can provide any further information.

Hi!

For the past month or so, some youtube clips keeps on loading and do not play.

When I switch to another video, it either plays or keeps loading again. Refreshing the page doesn't help. Clearing data (cookies, site data, and cache) do not help either. The only solution is to close the window which I'd rather not have to do every time. There doesn't seem to be any rule to the types of clips that plays or doesn't. Any ideas?

I'm using windows 10. Firefox is the latest 103.0.2 (64-bit). Thank you!

My laptop kept getting slower, so I uninstalled some programs that I wasn't using, to try to gain HD space and hopefully speed up my machine.

Firebird was one of the pieces of software that I uninstalled. I don't know if I uninstalled Thunderbird at the same time, but I lost Thunderbird and all my emails.

I re-installed Thunderbird. To my surprise, all of the settings for my email server were there, etc, along with a few emails. I have a FEW emails from 2021, but of course, not any that I really want. All the important emails, I lost.

I thought I was saving my emails (somewhere) to my computer, so if something like this did happen, I would hopefully have my emails back, but I am not finding any emails.

Would emails be in "mbox" ? If not, what file type are Thunderbird emails?

Thank you for any help you can give me. I am destroyed with the emails that I lost.

After a recent Firefox update, my Bookmarks on my laptop browser disappeared. I have all my Bookmarks on my iPhone. How do I Sync FROM my iPhone so I can put my Bookmarks back on my laptop browser? I don't want to Sync onto my iPhone because that would erase all my Bookmarks.

Are my Bookmarks saved anywhere that I can access them?

Is there a way to reach Firefox support directly?

Hi,

Is there absolutely no way I can download an add-on to use emoticons in my emails? I came across one that was supposed to be fine for version 102 but I tried it and it needs a signature? The ones I've looked at are nothing like the ones I had previously which mysteriously disappeared after I uploaded the latest version - which is now 102.1.2.

If you could tell me one way or the other, then I'll stop looking.

Thanks

Ann

Hello, I have recently changed my Host and in the process of trying to reconfigure my server details for my new mail account I accidentally removed my account, thereby losing all mails and folders including my customer database, which leaves me feeling bereft.

Looking at similar questions it seems that it is possible to restore the lost mails and folders but unfortunately I am not that savy with this stuff and find it all rather difficult and scary.

Are there any step by step instructions on how I can restore my account or simply get access to my lost mails and folders ?

Thank you very much for any assistance.

A little while ago I moved my email account from my ISP to Zoho. I've just notice that when I click on 'Properties' for any of the folders in my email account (Inbox, Sent etc.) the location is still listed as the old one, not my new provider. I wondered if this is why T'bird sometimes gets stuck at 100% when saving a sent message to the 'Sent' folder?

I've been using Thunderbird for a long long time and have always had many imap accounts setup, including a Yahoo Mail account.

As of just the other day (I believe Tues, June 7, 2022), suddenly and unexpectedly, Thunderbird 91.10.0 (64-bit) began showing ALL of my mail folders in the Yahoo account on the server, when I have always had many folders hidden (in unsubscribed state).

I have Thunderbird installed on 4 computers, and, as I launched TB on each of them, the displayed Yahoo folders updated to all folders on each computer (I had originally set up my profile on one computer and then later copied it to each of the others).

When I go into the TB yahoo account settings to re-unsubscribe and apply the settings and then restart TB, all folders remain showing... I cannot seem to get TB to once again unsubscribe to the folders I'm not interested in seeing in TB.

For reference, other imap accounts I have configured in the same profile remain with the same subscribed/unsubscribed settings I've always had.

If anyone has any ideas or explanations or a recommended fix, I'm all ears! ty!
