The default settings in:

Tools - Account Settings - Syncronization & Storage - Advance

... are to not check the Trash and Spam folders, therefore Thunderbird only downloads 51 messages at a time.

This might sound like a good idea for reducing traffic, but users don't know this so when they empty their trash (if they ever) after deleting all their spam (which can have more than 51 messages), they think they are done.

This results in leaving gigabytes of Trash and Spam on the mail server for IMAP accounts that users will probably never delete because they have to repeatedly empty the Trash 51 messages at a time.

Please change the default settings to download all mail for all folders. At least offer an option to do so when they Empty Trash.

I have a Yahoo email account with sbcglobal address. I can access my email with Firefox browser, att.com (although not currently a att customer) , and also on my android phone. With the same password I cannot access it on TB because it is allegedly a server error. I tried everything and then uninstalled TB and reinstalled it and tried to add my Yahoo acct and the same thing happened. I got a security key but don't know what to do with it if TB won't let me set up my acct.

COPY PASTE not working with Avast web sheild turned on and using the browser Firefox.

My OS is Catalina. Currently 10.15.6 My Firefox is 79.0 My Avast is 14.5 with only the 3 most fundamental core shields (email. web. and file)

Copy and paste is broken within Firefox when you have the Avast Web Shield enabled. While its enabled, other browsers do not have the same issue. Copy and paste in Safari and Chrome works fine. If you turn off the web sheild in Avast you must close and re-open the Firefox Browser and the issue is gone.

The Firefox reset/refresh that i tried, based on another post, only really disables the web shield for a small time, when avast refreshes it puts it back. So its not fixing the issue, its temporarily disabling it.

Its rather aggravating. Anyone solved it? Im posting on both FF and Avast forums.

I have used and updated Firefox for years. I am now on v79. And in my prefs.js file (about:config) there is tons of old crap. Things like references to old addons which cannot even be installed any more and were removed during updates, prtiner setup stuff for printers I no longer own, and something that is causing the rendering of chase.com to be messed up and the site unusable in FF.

Is there some reasonable way to clean up the prefs.js? Using about:config does not seem to remove entries, only reset them to default. If I exit FF and edit the file in my text editor, FF doesn't work right when re-started - I have to restore the profile folder from a backup.

There must be some way. Any help/tips?

Thanks

Please, I have read your articles, started in safe mode and this freezing continues. I am unable to type a complete sentence without freezing. This happens in Outlook email, or the search bar.

This does not happen in Word or other programs only in Firefox. This started after the latest update to version 79.0. I am a simple user and not a tech person. I’ve used Firefox as my browser for years. Perhaps this is a conflict with the new Microsoft update version 2004 home version. Maybe they want to force to change to Edge.

I have a print screen of the task manger showing usage. But not sure if that will help. Please help me, this is so frustrating. I’m tying this in Word to cut and paste into your box. I tried to upload two pdf's would not allow.

I seem to have a 'bug' being introduced through firefox when I view youtube videos. it does not happen right away, it takes a few videos to happen. The partial solution I have found so far (having done this twice so far in almost as many days, and about to do it a second in one day.) is to do a complete uninstall of firefox, then do a windows defender offline scan (which seems to knock out whatever is left in the machine, it won't tell me what was found.) then to come back into win10 and doing a clean install which seems to work well enough (having multiple tabs open [I do miss being able to have large numbers of open tabs and not having my machine going nuts]) till I break down and check the youtube channels that I like to keep up with. main noticeable symptom is my machines cooling fan going into 'hyper' drive, then checking task manager and finding firefox using almost two gigs of memory and 40+% of cpu capacity. As I type this, with just one tab open, firefox is showing 563.3 MB and seven (7) sub? programs running. Before this latest flair up, for one tab open it would be under 400MB and five programs running?

Add-ons I run on Firefox: uBlock Origin, Adblock Plus, and DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials

My friend's computer crashed. I was able to try and recover some of the data on the trashed disk that included Local Folders for his Thunderbird which contained non-extension files and .msf files (e.g. BMW and BMW.msf) He bought a new computer and installed Thunderbird. I assumed that if I copied the .msf and the non-extension file of the same name to the Local Folders directory on the new computer, he would have all the information recovered from those files. However, when I did that, the folders showed up but were empty. One folder, for instance, is "travel information" and is 18.7mb and the .msf file is 67kb. It would seem to me that there should be some content in that folder but it shows empty. Am I doing something wrong here or is it truly empty?

How can I get Thunderbird to add HthruP to its list of local folders, given that that set of folders is still on my hard drive? My iMac has the latest version of Catalina as its OS. I've saved lots of important messages in HthruP.
