Thunderbird 115 included in 24.04 LTS installation.

My profiles are located on the SD card working well on other two laptops running ubuntu 22.04. Swap SD cards between two laptops is my way of working with Thunderbird since 13.04.

After installation 24.04 LTS (and Thunderbird 115 included). Following the instruction for adding old profile to the new Thunderbird. Help->thunderbird information->about:profiles. Creating new profile. 1) Using the function CHOOSE FOLDER indicated the path to the profile /media/VB/AB49-E208/Thunderbird profile 2) The path to the folder shown by Thunderbird is different (and strange): /run/user/1000/doc/58235/Thunderbird

When looking into the directory tree the folder is empty (obviously). Thunderbird therefore cannot reach the profile located on SD card and doesn't work.

QUESTION: Is there any way to overwrite the profile folder path in Thunderbird 115 ?

I have used a free Hit Counter for many years that I got from https://www.freecounterstat.com/

I have 3 such counters and have stopped working in the latest version of Firefox on my desktop. They work with Firefox on my iPad and Android phone. They also work fine if I use the Edge Browser but I prefer using Firefox as I have for many years.

The embedded code is pretty simple, here it is for one of my counters... <a href="https://www.freecounterstat.com" title="visitor counter">Hit Counter for Financials</a> Can you help? Thanks, Bill T

This has been a problem for a while, currently on Firefox 126.0 and Nvidia 550.78. I can work around the problem by forcing webrender to use software mode.

When using HW accelerated webrender with my Nvidia graphics card everything works fine until the PC wakes from sleep, then graphics are broken and Firefox needs restarting. Most noticeable for me is when looking at Grafana graphs they will look like random lines, and my Frigate NVR snapshots only display some of the time.

Is there anywhere in Firefox that will show a log of any error messages to do with the graphics card? I would like to try and fix the problem rather than disabling HW acceleration, but with no logs to look at that is impossible. No other programs seem to have a problem with resuming from sleep, and no error messages are shown in any of the system logs.

Using Thunderbird on Linux I cannot delete any local folders, when I try to delete them I get more copies of the folders on reopening Thunderbird, after the system says it is "not responding" and I close it down.

i like firefox on my cell phone as well as on my pc, but i encounter a problem on my tablet. The screen is big enough that I could display my bookmarks bar permanently (as well as tabs). if I want to look up several things quickly, which would certainly be possible with my tablet with keyboard and mouse, I can't even do that because I can't open the bookmarks that quickly.

however, i can understand that this is not permanently implemented, but i would like to have a customization option via on/off in the settings and while we are on the subject, an option to switch tabs on/off like on the desktop like the page marker permanently on desktop mode would be really nice.

of course it could be that these options already exist, then it would be that i am too stupid to find them because i really couldn't imagine that they don't exist and have already rummaged through all the options.

Hi, am getting this error and am unable to use our new PC as this Thunderbird mail app is failing to migrate the profile from the other windows PC. Need your help asap on how to fix this. Not very technical, so need help. I updated Thunderbird to the latest version (115.11.0 32 bit) on my old PC before copying the profile over and loading Thunderbird on this new PC which has 115.11.0 64 bit version.

COX has moved all their email accounts to Yahoo. They still have the same name such as xxxxx@cox.net. It was difficult to get everything working, and I almost succeeded. There is still a problem with SMTP and I have submitted a separate question in this forum.

All my Gmail accounts are in the unified folder. The Cox accounts used to be there, but no longer. I have tried multiple times to get them there, but they won't move. Both the Cox and Gmail use 0AUTH2 and SSL/TLS. I prefer to have all my email in the unified folder so I don't miss anything.

They are currently a little bizzare with the sender appearing smaller than the subject line etc. I am not familliar with .css file settings and so will need to be considered a simpleton with any explanations. Any aswers I have seen refer to fire fox and assume that I know how to create the changes required or add a .css file somewhere. Thanks in advance. I attach a screen shot of my current inbox view .

Been using Thunderbird/Lightning for many years. In the latest update (115.10.1 (64 bit)), the EDIT button is not initially visible when I click on an event in my Calendar. In past releases, this edit button has always been visible in the pop-up window when I try to edit info in a New Event task. This happens SOME of the time, but not all. Any idea what changed, and is it possible to check out the code and change it back so when I double-click on an event, I see the edit button. At this time (not a big deal, but slows me down), when I go to edit an event, I have to move to a different monitor, resize the pop-up window so I can see the EDIT button, then finally click on it to edit the Event. In the past, the cursor immediately went to the EDIT button. Any info on changing this back the old way would be appreciated.

I have an old Lenovo tablet running Firefox 68.11 in Android Kitkat (4.4)

This device has never synced before, and as you know Mozilla, for reasons known only to themselves, never made a simple bookmark export in the Android app.

My attempts to set up a sync has also failed, access to https://accounts.firefox.com is apparently inaccessible, the page never loads, except for the logo you can see below.

Am I just out of luck?

I am posting this on my Mac Monterey; but the problem is on my Windows 10. It is similar to my last post about Firefox on that system. Updating is hanging. About Thunderbird shows an update available, just as that feature on Firefox did last week. However, though it indicates that it is attempting to download, it shows that nothing is downloading. So, there is a spinning icon on the left, but zero bytes downloading, just as Firefox did. After a restart last week Firefox applied the download. The same action occurs now with Thunderbird. To contrast, that same update just downloaded and applied on this Mac Monterey. The version on Windows 10 is 115.10.2, 64-Bit. There is a general Windows Update problem on that system. Edge, on the other hand, downloads its updates without any problem. I just ran a Troubleshooter that Windows makes available under Settings, Update and Security, Troubleshoot. Right now I am about to restart that computer.

I can't get smtp to work with multiple yahoo accounts. When I get the account settings window, it shows the correct smtp server for yahoo. (smtp.mail.yahoo.com) but when I click on the edit SMTP button, there is a section called "Security and Authentication" section with 3 lines

     Connection Security:             [SSL/TLS]
     Authentication Method :        [0AUTH2]
     User Name:                             [*****1@cox.net]  (My accounts were transferred from COX to Yahoo)

If I edit the SMTP on any of my cox accounts, it changes them all to the same user name. If I want to send mail from any cox account, I have to go to account settings first and edit the smtp and put in the correct account. This is very tedious.

I have noticed that my gmail accounts do the same thing, but gmail doesn't care. Here is the error I get when sending mail before going to account settings first to change the account.

Sending of the message failed. An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded: Request failed; Mailbox unavailable. Please verify that your email address is correct in your account settings and try again.
