About 2-2 1/2 weeks ago, my sbcglobal.net email account could only receive but not send emails. I have 4 other emails that are working just fine in TBird ( 2 are Comcast, 2 are Gmail). On May 8th, I contacted AT&T for help and we were able to reset the password and verify that I can receive and send sbcglobal.net emails on my Iphone and through the Yahoo website. The additional problem I now have is that the AT&T tech said we need to remove the sbcglobal.net email in TBird and then add it back in to TBird. As mentioned earlier, it was able to receive but not send emails. We were not able to add the sbcglobal.net account back into TBird. I am at a standstill now and have made screen prints to show configurations and settings. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I updated to Thunderbird 78.10.0 and inserted my profile file into the appropriate folder. Thunderbird found all of the mailboxes, but I can only manage access to two out of six. Four of them don't have any subfolders, and have no features available to me. When I click on the mailbox name, it will not expand, so it appears to have no contents even though all of the settings seem to have transferred okay. I'd like to get the new version all squared away, but am having trouble figuring it out.

I have used Thunderbird for decades and never had this kind of problem before. It seems to be stuck in a continual loop of downloading messages and compacting folders. This creates a problem because it dominates my internet connection. How do I alleviate the situation in version 78.10.0? It also seems like it always asked if I wanted to compact before just doing it.

Firefox installs updates without my permission and then deletes everything - logins, cookies, bookmarks, view settings, all history.

Now this has happened 3 times in less than a month. And it seems to happen randomly. It is likely related to a new update. I get alerts for updates and this time when the alert pop up showed up I declined by clicking "not now". I had also changed my preferences to only install updates with my permission. That is ignored by Firefox. Instead this morning I walked away from my computer for a few minutes and when I returned every this was gone the "this is embarrassing" screen was there but the only restore choice was to "search Marquis".

There is some type of conflict going on and I can't figure it out. I am using a MacBook running 10.12.6 and I have used Firefox for years. The most recent change was to a different internet provider. But the problem with Firefox deleting my info started before that. Something seems to crash within Firefox and it may automatically restart and then install an new update that deletes everything. That is just my guess. I don't really understand a lot of this and don't want to spend hours learning about browsers. The last time it happened I spent a long time trying to follow the suggestions for getting my history and everything else back but none of that worked. So I've given up on retrieving anything and apparently even having a history because it's always going to be randomly delete by Firefox.

Maybe Firefox is not the right browser for me anymore? What are the requirements?

Thanks for any suggestions as to what might be causing this.

Outgoing emails with PDF attachments are being rejected by recipient's mail server, with suggestion that a virus or malware is present. This is a problem that has arisen since Version 78.10 - for years have been sending PDF attachments without any problems.

No virus or malware found after full scan of this machine. Can send a PDF file as an attachment to an Outlook message from this machine without any issues, but attempting to do so with Thunderbird produces rejection message as attached.

I have accessed a different machine, also running v78.10.1, and this doesn't produce the error. Suggests a corruption in TB installation on this machine?

Can the profile be corrupted? If so, is there anything that can be done about it?

Hi,

The privacy and security settings don't work on Firefox 88 on Linux (Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS). Many sites will offer the option to 'Login with google/facebook/whatever' rather than creating a new account for that specific site. One really annoying (and dangerous) consequence of 'logging in with google' is that it remains logged in. So for example if I log in to non-google siteX using my google credentials and then hours later open gmail in a different tab I get straight through to my gmail inbox without having to supply any credentials (and indeed any other user of the same machine could do the same). Obviously this highly insecure and dangerous policy of keeping me logged in indefinitely is implemented by Google for their own agenda and has nothing to do with Firefox. The bug in Firefox is that when I clear all data to work around this google problem FIREFOX does not work as advertised. So to try to 'force' a logout from my Google account I go to Firefox -> Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Cookies & Site Data -> Clear Data, after a few minutes of churning away at my harddrive Firefox informs me that 'Your stored cookies, site data, and cache are currently using 0 bytes of disk space.' For good measure I then hit the 'Clear History' button. After this I open a fresh tab and go to gmail and I get straight into my inbox, no credentials required, so clearly Firfox is NOT deleting all cookies etc and is mis-reporting that 0 bytes are being used. So, does anyone know where/how I should report this dangerous privacy bug ?

Thanks MH

MacOS Catalina 10.15.7 Firefox 88.0.1 (64-bit)

All recent Firefox versions have killer bugs.

A new one was actually trying to login here. The error message said 'Cookies must be enabled' and I couldn't get further. Cookies *were* enabled! I shut down Firefox, and re-opened, and all was then OK.

. Web pages with scripts are often completely blank. . Pop-ups are often blank. If not they often don't work, like (critically) Ebay login. . View source (CMD U) works for new pages. However doesn't update if the source page changes.

 I do use <CMD U> from the changed front page.

A silly one is that the keypress to 'Copy Link' was deviously 'A', but not shown. It has now changed to 'L' and still not shown. Why? I very much prefer Firefox, and all the many shortcuts are memorised (well bar 'L' (8-)# )

However I so often now have to use Safari or Chrome to get around the bugs. This is a pain as the interfaces are different, and specifically 'View Source' never has a shortcut key. They also have their own bugs!

This glitch happens since I've started using Firefox several years ago: every time I start Firefox it extends its vertical size by adding some pixels to its top and bottom.

How can I stop it? Restore xulstore.json each time I want to restore the FF window size doesn't look like a good idea.

Attached are screenshots of xulstore.json (colored is the current and black is the backup ones) to show the glitch clearly.

I'm currently using Windows 10 Pro.
