Hello,

I have been having weird problems with my Firefox since I tried getting back to using it. I have reset everything before using it again. I changed the language back to English but the hamburger icon list is in Japanese. A minor issue but I can manage.

But this one is really annoying. I click on a link and it closes it down for me in 1 second. Here's a short clip of what I'm referring to.

Please help me solve my problem. I just want to download files from my email.

I checked my Thunderbird inbox this morning and all of the previous messages were there, as they should have been. I have a MacBook Air running OS Catalina. I keep thunderbird on even when the computer is asleep. This afternoon I woke it up and clicked on Thunderbird to open my inbox. It was completely empty with no record of any messages!!! I clicked on the 'Sent' box and it was intact, all sent messages unchanged. Aaugh! Please tell me what is going on and how I can recover the vanished messages. Thank you

How can I fix this?

In the past few weeks I have been unable to login to my att.net account on Thunderbird, even when I re-enter the password. I can get to my gmail accounts without a problem. The att.net account has the bulk of my emails. I attempted to repair the inbox but now cannot see the messages. I also cleared the cache. Prior to being totally unable to receive or send emails from this account, I often had to "retry" when login failed. Now that no longer works and I simply cannot access the att.net (Yahoo) account in Thunderbird but have to do everything in my browser.

My email client has silently stopped downloading emails (after 19th July). This was around the time I upgraded to v.78.0.1 I have 5 email accounts, all with a POP3 setup. Sending emails works. Retrieving emails silently fails.

Testing (IMAP) on Windows 10:

  • Thunderbird 78.0.1:
  Manual configuration 
  Error message said the user name or password was wrong.
  • Thunderbird 68.11.0:
The manual configuration worked fine, and was able to receive emails.

As my machine upgraded, I can not revert to an older version, and I do not wish to lose many years of emails.

How can I either: 1. Restore the old version. 2. Fix the email downloads.

Hi,

I recently downloaded and installed some Android emulator named "Andy". Unfortunately, the .exe also installed all kinds of other Software on my Windows 7 system.

I removed most of the unwanted Software but one problem remained: A search result hijacker was part of the package. It replaces the top 4 results with some cryptic redirect links that are luckily displayed in a different font, otherwise I wouldn't have noticed at all.

I tracked the issue down to a addon in Firefox (see attached screenshot) that I cannot remove, no matter what I try.

What I tried to remove it: - I tried to remove the addon via about:config - I tried to run Firefox in safe mode and uninstall it - I tried to factory reset Firefox - I Installed Avira and made a system scan - I installed MalwareBytes and made a system scan - I check all the extension folders for addons that I do not know but can't find anything - I checked my whole system for any xpi-files but couldn't find any.

I am out of ideas. I can disable the addon but thats about it. After a while Firefox will shut itself down and the next time I start it, the addon is on again. When I resinstall FIrefox, the same thing happens. The addon is always back.

When I inspect the element it loads some invisible icon file that is supposedly located in "src="jar:file:///C:/Windows/Installer/%7BB28AF4A4-C997-4A5B-A111-FD1E65138A8D%7D/%7B02E337C0-4D70-452D-AA64-92D0A8C5D953%7D.xpi!/icon48.png"", if that helps. But the location doesn't exist on my system.

Can anyone here help me? I alread sent a problem report via the official tool.

Sincerely Florian

Strangest quirk happened recently. When I scroll down a Fox News article to the reader's comments, half of the comments are embedded with question marks etc. that make them unreadable. Not the end of the world but a little bothersome. When I use Microsoft Edge or Explorer this problem does not occur so it must be the Firefox browser. I am running the most recent #83 Firefox browser. Thanks for any help.

1) I have Thunderbird 78.5.0 on my five-year old Windows 10 laptop and want to copy my data files to my new Windows 10 HP desktop pc.

2) I read and followed the directions in "Moving Thunderbird Data to a new Computer". I tried it several times, but I could not get it to work. Each time I pasted in the files, but when I opened Thunderbird, the new account window came up and none of my data was there.

3) I read the article "No Success with Moving Thunderbird Data to a New Computer" and tried the method on appuals.com using MozBackup as described on appuals.com. That program indicated a corrupt file, so again, unsuccessful.

4) I tried to download the Restoro Repair app from appuals.com, but my anti-malware program gave a warning, so I aborted.

5) I read the article from MozillaZine on "Move to a New PC", but nothing I tried from there worked either. I started with downloading the more recent MozBackup version, but I still got the corrupt file message. I also tried moving pieces of the profile file as directed, but then Thunderbird was unable to open at all.

6) I deleted the Thunderbird app from the desktop and downloaded another copy, which I am ready to install. However, I still need help on moving the data!

I am IT techie, and I need FF help on this. I searched the entire sync issue forum, but of no avail.

I had a Windows 10 update issue so I decided to format my PC. My sync was enabled and all data was synced normally. I went ahead and formatted it, and installed a new copy of Win 10, and all softwares, including FF. Now after syncing for over an hour, I cannot find anything. No history, no bookmarks, no logins, nothing.

This is definitely something to do with your update. I cannot figure anything else out. How can I get my old data back? This is absolutely ridiculous and frustrating.

I have 2 other laptops with FF synced, but they aren't booting up either because of hardware failures. I cannot risk turning them back on, and loosing my FF data from those laptops.

Please advise, how to access my cloud data on FF, or should I switch over to Google chrome because of your incompetency?

Hello Community

Do hope someone can help?

Have tried all suggestions in Support area on topic: Lost/Recover Bookmarks. Also spoke to Windows Support and was told to call Mozilla Firefox Technical Support. I've been unable to find a number.

I had a Windows update around the same time as a Firefox update, May/June, only realised all saved bookmarks prior to June 2020 have disappeared. This has never happened before.

Urgently need to find out if there's a method of retrievel or have it confirmed that all of these very important bookmarks are permanently lost.

Thank you in advance

Hi;

Have Thunderbird v78.0.1 (32bit). Tried importing items, (EML format), from Windows Live Mail v2011 Build 15.4.

Used Thunderbird's built in Import Tool. Kept getting: "Can't find other e-mail programs" even though Live Mail is still installed.

Downloaded importexporttools_ng-4.1.0-tb.xpi AND importexporttools-3.3.2-sm+tb(1).xpi. Both show "Not for v78.0.1".

Would someone kindly point me in the right direction so that I can Import Windows Live Mail Accounts & E-Mails into Thunderbird v78.0.1 (32bit)?

Thank You.
