Just downloaded Firefox. would appreciate any suggestions

  • menu bar, context menu, any type of drop down menu fails to open initially, only displays after a few clicks
  • tooltips on particular website making portions of content (that they cover) temporarily disappear, Most likely FF issue, not website issue after investigating

I already:

 *  restarted computer twice
 *  reinstalled FF
 *  FF refresh
 *  used FF safe mode

Hello,

I deleted some emails from my thunderbird account by accident. They do not show up in my Gmail anymore either.

I restored these emails using time machine and when I am offline, they show up in thunderbird. The problem is that if I go online, the emails all disappear from thunderbird.

At first my restored emails weren't even showing up. I decided to turn off Wifi and then restore the backup files and they were all there!

But now I cant go online without them disappearing. I think this is because thunderbird is talking to gmail and realizing that the files were deleted?

What can I do to keep the files while I am online?

I have 68.6.0 on my Mac and could not update because there was a problem in the software on the following versions that did not allow and update on Mac's.

If I down load 78.3.2 how do I get all of my emails, folders and address book on this version from my existing version?

I have tried down loading it but the set-up is terrible and convoluted. I have tried keeping my profile and inserting that, but compared to earlier versions of Thundebird the set up is completely unintuitive and what ever you click on does nothing.

In years gone by, you simply removed the new profile and inserted the old one in Finder>Go>Library>Thunderbird> Profile and everything was there. Now it's a mess.

Hi,

I applied to be in the VPN que quite some time back. I then got an invitation mail a month or so back saying that i am invited to sign up for access to the vpn platform. I did the payment on my mobile because i was not home at the time. I tried Sevral times with all my cards and each try i got a error message. It was said that i should go to my account page and enter my updated payment details there, and i followed the link wich indeed led to the firefox account page, but there was no sight of anywhere to update any payment info.... after trying several timesI then quit and thought there must surely be a support to dialogue with for further instructions..After kind of one Hour Plus of following link after link that just led back to where i had started and where it was said that if i wanted to speak to the Happy and motivated support team id just had to press the link, round and round it want until i realized that im not going to Find any happy and motivated support team, becuse there isnt any... This was over a month ago and i swore that id never ever use firefox again. Im Encouraged and expected to use all the products but they dont want o provide any Serious support when it comes to serious matters as Payments and Debit cards?!? How cheap can they be!!?? Like Really?!

I wrote a mail which i never got any reply to and i replied to the mails claiming being sent from "accounts" but never got an answer. Im seriously disiilisioned with FIrefox.... They dont want to actually Pay for a support team but instead uses VOLONTEERS!?!... like i said... how cheap can a fairly large company get. Although its some sort of foundation....still its not like its greenpeace sailing off to rescue whales in the arctic "volonteers sign up". Just charge a little more for the VPN so that you can provide a fulltime support team, better that then just Cheap being even Cheaper.

Its aken me That long to even want to write this mail. SO... can you guys help and perhaps change my less than cherished opinion about Mozilla...? I hope so but im not holding my breath if i may say so ;o)

This question was already asked [this thread] but the solution doesn't work for me.

In about:config, no matter what value I give to permissions.default.shortcuts, sites are still able to intercept my keyboard shortcuts (eg Ctrl+f).

I can disable it for individual sites, using Page Info > Permissions, but I'd like this turned off across the board because I find it creepy when sites mess with my controls.

I was connected to O365 with my work email but cannot send any message. IMAP works just fine, all folders synced regularly, but sending not work for some unknown reason.

SMTP setting is as follow: smtp.office365.com port 587 STARTTLS OAuth (this is correct setting, all others shows errors, including outlook.partner.cn & smtp.office365.cn, which is completely normal since I'm not in China).

The first thing that jump out is that my password is not OK, which is not correct. Password is OK. Click on "Retry" or "Enter new password" do nothing, just return the same pop up. If "Cancel", then receiving message with "unknown error 80004005" and all other blablabla about unknown reasons, with instruction to check my SMTP settings.

I've tried all variations available, but nothing works. Sometimes, at some moment after click on Cancel, it said "Message sent" and I can see it in my Sent Items folder, but it's fake because I never receive that test message to my personal Gmail address.

I have already tried all suggestions I could find (deleting passwords, resetting all, restarting, deleting and adding account again, changes in Config editor related to security.tls), but nothing worked for me.

My OS: Win 10 Pro, build 2004, TB version 78.3.2

Any advise is very welcome. Thank you all in advance.

I have a new Mac Mini (to replace my ten year old one) and it is running OS Catalina which quite a jump from my old Mini. I have updated to the latest Thunderbird v78.4, and at the top of the screen are the various menus as usual, starting with Thunderbird on left, then File, Edit, View, etc. When you click on Thunderbird you get a drop down menu, with About, Preferences, Service, Hide Thunderbird, Hide Others, Show all, and Quit Thunderbird. *None* of these menu items work! Why? I only know the version number as I saw it when it was downloading the application. I can Quit by typing 'Command Q' but I can't get Preferences by typing 'Command ,' so what is happening here? All the other drop down menus (File, Edit, View, etc.) and selections seem to work. Anyone else have this problem? Or know about this fault? Thanks.

Since I changed my Thunderbird to IMAP some months ago, after my email sever improved their platform ,it never registers anything when you click on "get mail."

My other email platform on Apple mail although IMAP always tells you what is happening by saying, "Checking for messages", and then either downloading any messages or, "No new messages" ,but Thunderbird says nothing now.

On POP 3 it said "Checking Mail" etc., as my Apple Mail does now but ,on Thunderbird now, nothing.

The attached image is AFTER I pressed "Save and Close", you will notice that it is still available, and that the calendar in the background shows nothing. No errors, no warnings, nothing done.

Hello!

I'm using Thunderbird ver. 78 and a clean Win10 installation. The incoming server setting until recently was IMAP, until I changed it to POP3 a week ago. Both accounts are currently visible in the directory structure in the Thunderbird setup. I wish to remove the IMAP account but as the contents of the "sent" folder in the new POP3 folder is not the same as in the IMAP "sent" folder, I'm not sure how to proceed and hope a kind person will be able to help with good advice? Might I be able to cut and paste from the IMAP "sent" folder the POP3 "sent" folder and will I be able to keep the data after I delete the IMAP??

Thank you very much in anticipation.

There's a config option to re-enable this and I've done it in the past, but I can't seem to find that option.

Dangerous Directories provides no resolution for use cases where durable profile storage is neither required not desired.

On our Linux Thin Clients, we really don't want applications writing _much_ to users' home directories in writable Flash. Firstly because it increases image size; secondly it leaves behind (or adds to the problem of clearing-up what's left behind by one user), and thirdly, we've seen Thin Clients that use cheap Flash eventually fail from heavy r/w.

Seems we either need a way of overriding Thunderbird's deprecation or at least disdain for /tmp or better-understand the intentions of Thunderbird's developers for handling this use case.

To us, /tmp seems "just right" -- i) faster r/w performance for potentially huge MBOX format files ii) cleans itself up; iii) doesn't trash the Flash.

TIA

Hi,

Tried to find the solution but the problem boggles me.

I'm using the latest version of Firefox on Windows 10 (2004). Using one Windows session (let's call it WS1), my profiles (even new ones) are extremely slow, as if I had a really bad Internet connection (but responds well to typing or opening new tabs or operating in general, just slow navigation). I have a backup browser, Opera, that works just fine. On another Windows session (WS2), Firefox works just fine, even with the profiles from WS1.

Safe mode doesn't resolve anything.

It can't be a driver problem, as it's the same PC, shouldn't be a software problem, same reason, and both sessions are built pretty much the same way.

I tried uninstalling Firefox, using Windows Disk Cleanup as per this solution https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1219670 then reinstalling it again and no change.

I can't use the other Windows session as it's not mine, and I can't create a new one either.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Edit: I was finally allowed a new Win session and the problem disappeared. Can't delete the question though.
