So I've been using flashfox for a while, which is an outdated firefox but allows flash player. I am unable to sign into the firefox account, and, during the process of switching to the current firefox, had trouble transferring bookmarks, which was not difficult because of copy n paste. However, the list of downloads (failed and otherwise) from flashfox can't be as easily transferred. Is there a file I can move to transfer information from there to the current firefox?

On the Windows partition of a dual boot pc, running 32-bit Thunderbird v68.4.1, all the messages that I had moved into Local Folders appear to be stored in the Mail folder in a file called "INBOX-1". Having looked at some older profiles still stored under Windows, I found in the Mail folder a subfolder called "Local" with numerous files named after the subfolders I created. That makes more sense to me than a single file called INBOX-1. However, the GUI finds them and displays them correctly as Local Folders

When I load the same profile into 64-bit TB v68.4.1 on Ubuntu, the Local folder in the GUI has only Trash and Outbox. How can these subfolders and the mail in them be displayed in the Ubuntu version?

After upgrading to TB 68.4.1 I could not read/write e-mails anymore. The error message is "The IMAP server does not support the selected authentication method". The log file shows

[(null) 18264: Unnamed thread 23287970]: D/IMAP try to log in [(null) 18264: Unnamed thread 23287970]: D/IMAP IMAP auth: server caps 0x4484421, pref 0x1006, failed 0x0, avail caps 0x0 [(null) 18264: Unnamed thread 23287970]: D/IMAP (GSSAPI = 0x1000000, CRAM = 0x20000, NTLM = 0x100000, MSN = 0x200000, PLAIN = 0x1000, LOGIN = 0x2, old-style IMAP login = 0x4, auth external IMAP login = 0x20000000, OAUTH2 = 0x800000000) [(null) 18264: Unnamed thread 23287970]: D/IMAP no remaining auth method [(null) 18264: Unnamed thread 23287970]: E/IMAP login failed entirely

So, no authentication method was even selected.

I have created a new appdata Thunderbird folder. Now I can define an exception for my certificate in the settings - without specifying the port. The downloaded certificate has the wrong port number however (should be 143 but is 443). When reading e-mails another certificate with the correct port is downloaded which I can confirm, and the e-mails are read correctly. However when restarting Thunderbird the above error message comes again and I have to repeat the procedure by first deleting the certificate and then defining an exception for it.

My questions: - How can I tell Thunderbird to accept my certificate without defining an exception in the settings? This was not required before the update. - How can I define the certificate exception in a way to get the correct port that persists after restarting Thunderbird?

I'm sure I must be missing something simple in this but ------- It appears the only effective way in which to import contacts into TBird address books is to first export a "template" of spreadsheet field names and then match those names to the data requiring to be imported. Is there no way of "mapping" the Address Book default field names to field names created in a spreadsheet? e.g. Address book "field" = Display Name whereas spreadsheet field name might = Full Name.

In the Search panel of the Preferences page I have changed my preferred search engine to DuckDuckGo. It will stay as this until I quit and reopen Firefox, when it reverts back to Google. I've tried this a few times but it always goes back. I've looked for a cookie that might be being deleted, but there are none on my machine (that I can see).

I'm running Firefox 72.0.2 on a Mac with Catalina 10.15.2 and also have Firefox apps on an iPhone and iPad.

Can anyone shed any light? Thanks in advance

A technician set up my new account but did not create a local folder first, and years of email records disappeared. I understand much of it is still on my computer in the Profile folder. I'm just not sure what to do to get all that old stuff uploaded onto the new IMAP server. I have 4 devices and he only had access to two of them. Those can now check email on my new account but obviously, none of my old stuff is there. Wondering if I just configure one that he did not touch to POP, then reconfigure with the new server settings, then switch back to IMAP if it will all upload? Just can't lose all these records. business, etc., I'm sure I have worded this all wrong so please try not to be too mean?

Thanks to anyone reading this. I depend on several Firefox addons for my livelihood and need them to work.

The problem: Only a select few of my addons work after installing a parallel (older) version of firefox in a separate Program Files folder I called "Firefox 49.02. (why I wanted to do that: there is a specific iMacros version and some scripts that only work with 49.02, and I wanted to use FF 49.02 to run that version of iMacros while I wasn't using the regular updated version (i.e. FF 72).

I didn't expect my current addons to work in FF 49, so I wasn't surprised when they were disabled for that version.

BUT when opening the latest, FF 72, virtually all my addons were also disabled!

All disabled addons, except for 3 of them (out of almost 100), don't even have a blue switch or a way to enable them, even in the context menu, or the manage page (where you can enable auto-updates and see author details and home page etc.).

I ran a "Check for updates" for all addons, and a couple managed to update and enable, though I'm not sure if they were ones that had a switch.

I've attached a screenshot of the addons page showing some without an enable option beside a couple that do.

Note: All these addons worked flawlessly in this prior to installing FF 49

I've searched everywhere but everything is so saturated with fixing the "disabled addons certificate" problems that happened for everyone who *upgraded*. In my case, I installed a parallel downgraded version and the addon's won't work in either version.

Hope things are clear, sorry if I repeated my self. Please let me know any more information needed I am desperately seeking a solution for this.
