Immediately after updating TB to Version 78.4 my email accounts with Earthlink and Comcast ISP's stopped functioning (incoming and outgoing). I have used TB for over 5 years and been running IMAP on all my email accounts with previous versions of TB without any issues. After trying fixes found on support forums (i.e. changing config setting security.tls.version.min from 3 to 1) I was able to get my Comcast accounts working but not my Earthlink account (which is my primary account). After 1 1/2 hours with Earthlink Tech support, I was told I needed to reinstall TB with the previous version that worked. For me this is unacceptable. Why use a specific Email client if new versions do'nt work with my ISP's or I need to tweak config files. This should all be transparent to the user. Can anyone help me with fixing my problem. Thanks.

I'm at my wits end. I've tried every fix I could find and Firefox is dramatically slower then Edge or Chrome. This happens with loading sites, like Amazon. Also, it often locks up/stops when typing (like right now) and it takes about 15 seconds for it to repond again.

First, I doubt it's a hardware or network issue, since it's happened on both my old archaic PC and now on my new PC (i9 CPU, Nvidia 2070 graphics card, 64gb RAM).

Here's some highlights of what I've tried so far: • Refreshing multiple times • Rebooting the PC • Doing all the Quick Tips on this website • Eliminating all extensions • Clearing all cookies and cash • ...

Also, I don't get any error codes. The tab icon just spins for a long time.

I'm hoping I'm missing something obvious, since I love Firefox.

Thanks and any help!

Hello I am German and not used to write in english. I use Firefox on my Xperia device. Within the last Update I got the new function to collect the tabs. I created several collections and named them. After I put in the tabs and deleted them in the list. So they were only in the collections. Today I wanted to use one Tab out of the collection. But the whole collection Was not any more there, same with 2 Others! Where are these collections and the tabs now? I did not delete them and I need them.

Where are they and how can I use them again?

Kind regards

I hav been using my Gmail in Firefox with no problem until about 3 days ago. Now when I try to sign in to my account I get a pop up window which states “This browser or app may not be secure. Try using a different browser. Etc.”

I have tried another browser (chrome) and Gmail works fine, but I like working in Firefox. But at this rate I may dump Firefox and go to another browser.

I have looked through the other support group questions and solutions. I have tried them all and nothing is resolved. Clearing cache, clearing cookies, using a private window, managing data, using forget about this site, generating a new profile, disabling extensions, loading in safe mode, etc.

I have Firefox version 83.0 (64 bit). My operating system is windows 7.

Any other suggestions?

Firefox - Add Colored tabs

I had Firefox version 81 and after installing version 82 in a new install on a new hard drive, I cannot change the color of my tabs anymore. I should see white tabs for the current tab but no longer when I added my userChrome.css file. I see instead a thin blue color strip along the top of the tab and the rest is grey. This shows up without any userChrome.css file.

In Firefox address field type: about:support It shows my Profile. vwy0y5ix.default-release I also have under the Profile folder this: jcueuz5y.default

I put the userChrome.css file here in my Chrome folder: C:\Users\David\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\vwy0y5ix.default-release

A while back I upgraded to version 78 only to realize that was a major mistake for me. It wasn't easy but eventually I got myself back to version 68 and turned off automatic updates to be sure that I would stay on 68.

Then, out of nowhere, when I rebooted my machine I was back on 78 and have no idea how that happened. Once again, I went through the painful backward migration but kept wondering how the second forward migration happened since I had turned off automatic updates.

I think I may know, now, how the second migration to 78 happened. Something like once a day, Thunderbird pops up a dialog box asking me if I want to upgrade and it appears that the affirmative is the default selection. I am afraid that at some point that dialog box popped up, stole my focus just as I was hitting 'RETURN' and it downloaded and installed 78 in the background. I didn't find out about it until I rebooted my machine and reopened Thunderbird.

I don't want that to happen again -- I cannot currently run on 78. I would really like to stop it harassing me to upgrade -- I will upgrade when it is okay for me to do so. Is there some way to stop that dialog from popping up?

Thanks for any help you can offer.

In short the tech support erased the e-mail settings and effectively made a new profile on my parents computer.

I can go into the original profile and see the size of the inbox confirming that the old e-mails still are present but I am not able to get Thunderbird to display them. when opened normally. I have even attempted to move the files manually into the new profile local folder in attempts to recover them. I have spent allot of hours trying to get access to recover the family history files that had not yet been backed up and are no longer replaceable.

I have since copied the mail directory from in the profile and brought it to my own computer but I am still unable to get the original e-mails to display. System restore will not work in any mode and I have run out of ideas. Does anyone have any suggestions on a program that can let the files be displayed so they can be recovered?

Hello,

 I'm a Windows 7 user. For the past 3 weeks my Firefox browser (83.0) has been slowing down and then speeding up while visiting sites. I tried Safe Mode, Refresh, and Reinstall but nothing seems to help. It's not being caused by anything on my computer (malware, viruses, etc) because I ran several scans using Malwarebytes Premium, CCleaner Premium, Microsoft Security Essentials, even Microsoft Safety Scanner and nothing turns up.
 Is there any other way to fix this issue on the browser?

I used the thunderbird addon importexporttools-ng to import an MBOX file into thunderbird. I was hoping to then copy or move the emails into gmail using thunderbird.

I have about 30,000 emails I need imported into gmail. However when I try to copy the emails into gmail using thunderbird it only copies about 8,000 of them. I couldn't possibly know which ones have been copied and which haven't.

Why aren't all the emails being copied into gmail. Is is there a setting I need to change or perhaps I need to increase a timeout setting. I thought it was only emails with an attachment that weren't being copied over but that's not the case. However I noticed larger emails are less likely to be successfully copied.

I would really appreciate some help.

Okay I just uploaded the new version of firefox I think 83, and every time I restart my computer or anything like that I have to re-log back into EVERYTHING. All my google accounts everything that require a password. It has for the most part my passwords saved but it i a huge hassle especially since I work from home it eats up a lot of time.

It doesn't save my tabs I had left open either. I can get them back when I go to sync tabs but I have to do it one at a time. It literally takes me back to the "Important News: Changes to your Firefox" page every time and its been days and its super frustrating. If I have to do this every time I will have to switch over to chrome which would be a bummer. I have tried fixing it in my preferences section of firefox and made sure everything is lining up there so it should be saving my info but no matter what I do it just takes me back to that page along with my ad blocker and honey page as if it was my first time signing in

Please help I can't do this every time I log in
