TB 78.6.1 Mac OS 10.11.6. I regularly get situations where TB says "The folder *** cannot be compacted because another operation is in progress. Please try again later." I press "OK", and it says the same thing for another folder. And another. And another. On and on. The only way I can get out of it is by quitting and restarting TB.

I have several accounts. Two POP and one IMAP.

What's going on? This is pretty annoying and also pretty silly. As far as I know, I don't have any other operations going on.

I've had all settings in about:preferences#privacy turned off for years, but a new firewall is asking me to allow default-browser-agent.exe to send data.

I'd have thought the program should stop running altogether when all checkmarks in "Firefox Data Collection and Use" are turned off.

I'd love to view what data is being sent.

I need to do the simplest thing. I see a web page I want to get back to later. I bookmark it. Later today or tomorrow or whatever I try to find it. And that is borderline impossible. It's not something I categorize or file away in well defined folders for future reference. I just want to read it later. It it's go e, lost in no particular order in a cast list of bookmarks. All I want is to find these fairly recent bookmarks, read, and delete. Is that simplest of actions not possible?

I have configured FF to block all cookies under "Browser Privacy" the custom setting allows "Choose which trackers and scripts to block. and I selected "all cookies". Knowing that all cookies will be blocked I logged into office 365 and allowed manually cookies through "view page info" I then selected "set cookies" to allow expecting full access to office 365 mail, but this did not occur. What happened is I logged into office 365 and could see the icons and my login name but could not read the mail.

Office 365 gave the message "we couldn't sign you in please try again" yet I could see my log in name and the office 365 icons for mail, calendar etc.. just not the actual data. If I allow cookies in Browser privacy (which i take it allows cookies always) it woks.

I bring this up because it seems like something is missing in cookies that is not represented in FF.What is the difference between browser privacy cookies and allowing it through view page permissions? Can anyone offer an explanation?

To ensure I remember to do important tasks I leave the message as unread until I am ready to work on it but on Saturday morning I logged in to discover that all my emails, including new unseen ones had been marked as read. I read the help and went and unticked the automatic mark as read box. Which seems to have stopped them showing as read immediately -but now it marks it as unread within a couple of minutes. Does anyone have any ideas as to what has happened ? and how I can resolve it. Thank you.

Trouble re-installing TB 78.6.1 / 78.0.1 Profile / emails after system restore in Windows 10

Hello,

I have followed the instructions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/moving-thunderbird-data-to-a-new-computer, and also tried several variations thereof - all without success.

PROCEDURE:

After each failed attempt, I uninstalled TB. The TB profile folder under %APPDATA% was also removed, and a new clean copy of TB installed, once 78.6.1 and once 78.0.1.

Nothing of the below resulted in the Profile and emails coming up when opening TB:

1. Pasting the saved TB profile source folder over the newly installed TB destination folder. 2. Emptying the newly installedTB destination folder first, then pasting the saved TB source files/ folder into it. 3. Merging the contents of the newly installed TB destination folder with the contents from the saved TB source files/ folder.

4. Pasting the saved source "Profiles" folder over the newly installed destination "Profiles" folder. 5. Emptying the newly installed destination "Profiles" folder first, then pasting the saved "Profiles" source files/ folder into it. 6. Merging the newly installed destination "Profiles" folder with the saved "Profiles" source files/ folder.

7. Pasting the saved source folder "hpaxv0u8.default-release" over the newly installed "…...default-release" folder (its name changed with each new TB install). 8. Emptying the newly installed destination folder "…..default-release" first, then pasting the saved source files/ folders from "hpaxv0u8.default-release" into it. 9. Merging the newly installed destination folder "….default-release" with the contents with the "hpaxv0u8.default-release" source folder.

RESULT:

Each time, the profile files are copied and visible in the directory.

But on opening TB, the prompt comes back on asking to set up an email account.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1289124?utm_campaign=questions-reply&utm_medium=email&utm_source=notification#answer-1318119 advises to paste the source folder "hpaxv0u8.default-release" over destination folder "…...default-release" and delete the remaining default folders in the destination Profiles folder.

When I do that, TB is unable to start up. Error message: "Your Thunderbird profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible."

NOTES:

- The two TB versions were downloaded from https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/releases/78.6.1/win64/ and https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/releases/78.0.1/win64/.

- The two TB versions were each installed and removed nine (9) times (as per above). On the same PC as before, where TB had worked just fine: Windows 10, 64-bit.

Wot to do? Many thanks.

Hi,

Ever since a while ago, some images are not showing correctly in Firefox. I must have gotten this issue in the last update(84.0.2) or slightly earlier. I tried resetting it, and used safe mode, but I still get the same issue. I don't know how to fix it at this point, and the only solution I have at the moment is to switch over to Chrome for important times, such as for online exams, but this is not ideal. Does anyone have a clue about what could be wrong, or am I doomed to use alternatives to Firefox during important times/just for viewing certain pictures?

Current Version: 84.0.2 (Auto-Update/Help -> About Firefox) OS: Windows 10

Thank you.

How can you help? Well, you could stop fixing what ain't broke, just for starters!

I am a visually impaired person who has no choice but to use a specific colour scheme for Windows, and as such, I use 'High Contrast Black'. Over the past couple of months, I have had an additional Glaucoma attack, which meant I was unable to read my emails, but I have just started to do this again today...and I was perplexed as to why my filters didn't seem to be working. I opened the Message Filters management window, and all my lovely tick boxes that made it easy to enable/disable inidividual filters, was gone! In fact, there's a column headed 'Enabled', but nothing on each row in that column...no tick box, no nothing. Not only that, but the 'Run now' button doesn't seem to do anything.

I'm obviously missing something here, or perhaps it's that you have now successfully made it inaccessible for me. I am seriously considering giving up on Thunderbird, after all these years, and using Windows Mail. At least their client recognises that some people need particular colour schemes. This was never a problem with tick boxes, and for most people, functionality is more important than changing things to keep up with the Jones! I spend way too much time in my life dealing with the changes inflicted on my by megalomaniacs!

NB. Please do not ask me for a screenshot as I am a Windows Magnifier user, and a screenshot will not show you my screen. What I've said above should be all that you need to know.

The app is available on Quest 2 and browsing works very well in general, much better IMO than the default browser. But when I start any WebXR application, for example Mozilla hubs, everything is distorted. I see Quest 1 controllers in my hands and this makes me think that Quest 1 distortion profile is applied to the image, not the Quest 2 one. Is that correct? And are there plans to update Firefox Reality with Quest 2 distortion profile and controller models?

Running Win 10.

TB updated last Friday, 22/01/2021. Worked fine prior. Now can't send messages or see the content of the Personal or Collected address files. The profile is now named "****.default-release" and the abook.sqlite and history.sqlite are in place and large enough to contain the address data. The old profile "****.default" now only contains one entry which is "times.json". Another PC running same OS and TB retained what appears to be all the old files in the replaced profile

I've tried starting TB in safe mode, no difference.

I'm not getting any pop-up error messages.

Does anybody have any suggestions please?
