How to stop empty 'phantom' folders continually reappearing when deleted

I have a bunch of email subfolders showing up in Thunderbird which have nothing in them. Their names appear in italic, greyed-out. No matter how many times I delete them, when I reopen Thunderbird they've just reappeared in their previous location. This includes three in the Deleted folder.

I'm using IMAP and the phantom folders are not there in my provider's webmail interface, so it must be a local problem.

I know from internet search that lots of people have had this. Solutions elsewhere that I've already tried and that didn't work:

- unsubscribing from the folders: they appear in the subscribed list but without any checkbox next to them - deleting the .msf, panacea, etc. files: the folders reappear just the same after doing this

Has anyone found a fix that works? This is my work email account and the clutter in my folder pane is really unhelpful!

Can I use a thumbdrive to save space on the hard drive? I'd be willing to move everything, but I am thinking (and asking) how about saving just the stuff I have placed into local folders? I'd go to the extreme by installing Thunderbird onto my thumbdrive and migrating everything to the thumbdrive. I'd then be okay with using the thumbdrive each time I wanted to interact with Thunderbird AND my email(s). I just do not know what to do with all my saved emails. To save space, I really don't want to simply delete emails I've saved for years.

I shall appreciate any assistance. Thank you, Community. JLynch541

Hi Folks, In the last couple of days the display in my Task Bar has changed and I want the 'old' display back.

It used to be that only the first tab I had open was on show and when I clicked on it my browser would pop up, all complete with as many tabs as I had open. If perchance I had two copies of my browser open then they'd appear side by side.

Now however, all opened tabs are on show - and I don't like it. Today for example I have four tabs open (as seen below) and if I hover my pointer over any one of them then it displays as a thumbnail and if I hold my pointer over any one tab then it displays on screen. But I want to go back to the 'old' way with each opened browser showing but with other tabs hidden.

How can I do that?

Hi guys,

I'm having problems with playing some videos on youtube and all videos on facebook. I have the last version, 77.0.1, 64 bit edition. I'm using a Dell Laptop, not the it would count, with windows 10 PRO, 2004 version.

For some weeks I've started getting the message : "To improve video quality, you may need to install Microsoft's Media Feature Pack". Since then I've had problems playing videos.

I tried everything that I thought of : running FF in safe mode, without addons, I reset it and tried it without anything installed. Added the account again. Nothing. I tried to install the Microsoft Media Feature Pack, but there isn't anything for windows 10 2004 edition. Any solution for this ? PS : I have other systems, a laptop and a desktop, which run the same FF version, with different windows 10 versions, 1903 and 2004, and the videos are working with any problems.

I'm experiencing some trouble on the website Chesstempo. I can't acces some of the functionalities on the site and I can't log out off the site.

I think a resent Firefox update might have changed somethings in regard to browser history and cookies?

My problem: Firefox won't delete cookies and browser history. I did a reset and when that didn't work I had to manually delete sqlite and json files. That worked!.....but I'm still experiencing problems on Chesstempo.

I'm on old hardware here, so the problem could be on my end, but Chesstempo worked fine until recently. Obviously Chesstempo have to have the abillity to set and read cookies to track my activity properly.

Other competing products work fine here?

Any thoughts would be appreciated
