Hello,

Since upgrading to 78.6.1 yesterday, my TASKS list that displays alongside my Calendar is listing all my tasks going back to when they were first created. I have gone through all of them 3 times now, ticking all the boxes to clear them off the Task list but when I restart Thunderbird they are all showing in the Tasks list again. I've tried double-clicking on an entry and then 'Edit All Occurrences', made changes and then saved again, but they all just keep reappearing in the Tasks List as if they haven't been completed??

I was running Thunderbird 78.6.0 (Windows 10) without any issues. Performed the automatic upgrade to 78.6.1 - after restart all my recurring tasks (from as far back as 2013) have been marked "not completed".

Is this a known issue? How do I resolve?

BTW - I reverted back to 78.6.0 and the symptoms went away. However, after auto-update to 78.6.1 again, the issue reappeared, and is now present even when regressing back to 78.6.0.

Hi, Since yesterday I have a very annoying problem. Even if I have my cursor focused on one of my folders (e.g.: Inbox), my email list is dissapearing suddenly. Happens very often, every 5-10mins or so.

To "recover" it I have to click on other folder(e.g. Sent) and then click again on the previous one. This happens to all folders, without exception.

I am using Thunderbird 68.10.0 (64-bit) on Xubuntu 18.04 and "Owl for Exchange" to connect to my company's email.

See attached photos. Thanks

I run TB on Win7 ok till a couple of days ago, when it suddenly stopped being able to find the Outlook account. so it will not update the TB account. I can set up a new Outlook link and it works, but cannot update the old account passwod setting, which has gone AOL. Is ther any way of duplicating the original setup wizard to update the old account so it will refind Outlook? Is there any way of amalgamating TB accounts so that I could set up a new link and then add the old emails? Is there any way of forcing TB to ask for the Outlook password again. The problem seems to arise from the latest update to TB

I have many recurring weekly tasks, all of which have been completed to date. After the recent update, however, all such past tasks now have the status "Not specified" and so appear in red in the list of tasks. If I change the status back to "Completed" on one of these tasks, then it does disappear from the list - but reappears when I restart the program.

Before the update, I rescheduled some recent individual instances of recurring tasks (so they wouldn't occur during holidays): the tasks now have their original dates. A similar reversion to original has also occurred with recent individual instances of recurring events: both the title and the category changed back after a restart of the program.

The problem seems to affect only recurring tasks and events.

The same issue exists on my two computers, both of which have Windows 10; they run Thunderbird independently.

I'd be very grateful for any useful advice.

I read an article stating Mozilla management is actually considering jumping on virtue signaling bandwagon by "warning" me about their opinion on sites they decide aren't trustworthy. For the record, I'm an independent that shares both left and right views. I loathe the idea of "safety" or 'the children" BS arguments to fiddle with my data or have you inject your opinion in any way.

If it happens, goodbye forever and I'll cheer on whatever replaces you if they do it right.

I shouldn't have any idea about the political views for a service like this. Shame on you all for not having the discipline to just do the job. Hope it's worth the cost.

I am using Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit) on Win 10 Pro and the menu font size and toolbar icons are minuscule, even on my 32" monitor.

I found a fix for this same problem in Thunderbird, but I don't see any way to make the menu fonts and toolbar icons bigger in Firefox. This has nothing to do with web sites, just the menu/bookmarks, toolbar icons, etc.

Thank you.

Suddenly, Firefox won't load Google Calendar. I see the template, but the items on the calendar won't load. I know it's not the calendar itself because it loads fine in Chrome and on all my android devices. I made sure all the add-ons were taken off. I refreshed. I cleared the cache. Erased history. Nothing worked.

I finally gave up, backed up all my bookmarks, and deleted Firefox. I downloaded it fresh and installed it again. Same problem! The calendar won't load. I found others complaining, but no one had a solution.

Not to be a conspiracy theorist, but a friend told me this was part of a "browser war" and Firefox would no longer support a variety of sites and apps. Is that true? Or do you have a solution.

I am busy doing my schoolwork and firefox keeps on crashing, namely by over-using the CPU on my laptop too much. I have tried numerous routes, such as reducing the number of browser extensions, using one of the certified performance-boosting add-ons to reduce CPU usage, I even tried limiting my tabs to a maximum of 10, all of them have failed to improve performance. This is not even mentioning the browser-induced bluescreen I just got a few minutes before writing this.

Upon start up Firefox (ver 84.0.2) will use 100% of my HDD for 45 to 60 minutes, freezing my PC for that entire time. This also happens when I start Firefox in safemode, and when I start my PC in safemode with networking. I have cleared the cache, I have deleted each extension, I have even deleted each and every bookmark. I have deleted, redownloaded, and reinstalled the latest version of Firefox. I have even done a full reinstall of Windows 10. My HDD is less than two months old, and shows no errors when scanned. This problem does occur with other browsers, but not for the same length of time, Chrome will use 100% of my HDD for one minute, tops. Once Firefox stops doing whatever it is doing to my HDD after an hour or so, it will run in the background using 0% of my Disk. Through all of this, the Memory use goes no higher than 18%, and CPU no higher than 45% for a few seconds.

If I open a second tab in Firefox, or a separate instance of Firefox, it does not use the HDD very much at all.

If I close all Firefox instances and then reopen a new one, it will, again bog down my HDD for about an hour.

The unacceptable solution I've come up with is to open Firefox immediately after turning on my PC and to leave it running in the background for that entire time.

I stopped using Chrome a while ago and I use, ahem, Bing for searches. Sometimes, when I click on a link I get a "404. That’s an error. The requested URL was not found on this server. That’s all we know." while using Firefox. I copy the link and paste it into the browser Edge and the site comes up no problem. Does firefox used a cached version of Google while Edge does not? Is there a way to resolve this?

I decided to stop using Google some time ago so made the full time change to Firefox and a different search engine. A tad bothersome that Google is still there. Not really interested in going to MS Edge...
