Hey Mozilla!

I'm a big fan of your product, and I use it on my Windows 10x64 PC and my Note10+ Android 12 smartphone.

Since your last update, there is a problem (on the PC mozillla browser): when a click a link to download a file, automaticly is open a new window that OPEN the file. Before the last update, when I was click-ing the link, I remember that the browser was open a small window and promt me to OPEN or to SAVE the file. Now, that function is missing. (I have checked different web sites, including whatsapp for desktop, the problem is persisting).

I haven't changed any settings, the box is checked for "Always ask you where to save files".

Thank you!

Best regards, Bogdan

So I have my Download button visible all the time.

Yesterday, this suddenly started to happen.

When I download something, the list of Ongoing Downloads stayed open. It never did that before.

Any idea why and how to fix it?

I am trying to alter my settings on Thunderbird (ver 68.10.0 running with Linux Lite 3.6) to use Oauth2 and IMAP from POP and password (as forced on me by Google). I go through the necessary steps (prevent the POP account from checking for messages, remove saved password for the POP account, start up the New Account autoconfig). All goes well until I get a Google login screen (with my email address already entered). I press 'Next' expecting to enter my password, only to get a login screen asking for my email address. I re-enter my email address, press Next, and go back to the beginning again! This seems to continue for ever. I guess I'm missing something (although dealing with Google systems always seems to be difficult).

Any suggestions gratefully received.

Thanks for your time.

Could somebody be so kind as to explain how I download all my Gmail emails into Thunderbird in the same folders as in Gmail?

I'm not talking about synchronizing my Gmail account with Thunderbird. I want to literally download the emails into Thunderbird (so that I can delete my Gmail account but still retain all my emails from that account by keeping them in Thunderbird).

I tried Google Takeout and got a mbox file. But when I import it into Thunderbird the emails all appear in the inbox without any folders.

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Hi

I'm guessing this is because of the latest update to Firefox, but every time a download finishes, the pop-up box for the downloads keeps coming up. I guess this is considered intuitive to let you know a download has finished, but I could do without it. I find it a bit distracting and it gets in the way. Is there a specific option that can disable it in the config?

Thanks

The latest update has made it so Firefox opens the download panel every time I download something, a very obnoxious behavior when downloading a lot of files, and I can't find a way to stop that from happening.

[came across another question that brings up the same issue], but that one focuses more on a site presumably changing about:config rather than the issue of the download panel itself.

Late last week, something changed in Firefox browser. I used to download csv files and Firefox would open them with the option to save as an excel file. Now it does not. I have to save it as csv then convert it to excel. It also doesn't seem to save my settings on the website I'm downloading from - I always have to manipulate the settings before downloading. It is a huge headache and I have resorted to using Chrome instead.

A year or so ago I had an email server I knew I was taking offline and needed to be sure I saved all my emails before taking the server offline. So I downloaded them to Thunderbird and exported all the emails. I remember even installing Thunderbird on another computer and being see them from the backup I made. However a year later after installing the newest version of Thunderbird I don't seem to be able to view the emails. While Mozilla was not open I created a new profile using win+r thunderbird.exe -p then I went to my local AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird folder and dropped all my backup information into the new profile I had created. When I start up Mozilla Thunderbird it asks for email login, which I no longer have as the email server has been taken offline. How can I view my email information I have saved its 1.8GB worth which was what was on my email server before taking it offline so I'm confident I have the right files, just not sure how to get them read. I have attached an image of what my backup information looks like.

Thanks for the help in advanced.
