When I check the connection settings on a website (lock icon left to the address bar) and go to more information I can see how many times I have visited this website. I already deleted my entire history and all the data but I still can see how many times I have visited different websites in the past. Where is this stored and how to delete this information?

The problem is it will show suggestions in the address bar. There is a setting to to remove such suggestions but I only want to remove some results. Why doesn't this part of the "history" gets deleted?

I am using FF 97.0.1 Win 10

Downloaded Thunderbird on Widows 10 PC. Attempted to set up account on att.net/Yahoo email. It automatically found inbound/outbound settings etc. but would not connect. Got the configuration, password or whatever error message. 4 hrs researching and looking for support help. Nada. Windows Mail works, for what little it offers. Passwords are correct. Seems since ATT split from Yahoo mail, Win Live Mail was discontinued and “Currently AT&T” is the operating entity, things are less than ideal. Was hoping Mozilla Thunderbird would be the answer.

The themes I use normally have white backgrounds and black text. Following an update, the default colour scheme changed from a white background to a black background for web pages without the theme being changed. Google, YouTube, and Firefox pages are all using black backgrounds. I ensured that the Dark theme was disabled, selected the Light theme, then switched back to the theme I had been using; the black background returned when I switched back to the theme I wanted to use. I tried changing the colour settings under "Language and Appearance: Fonts and Colours: Colours..." to white text and black background and back to black text and white background, but no change was noticed at any point.

How do I change the page background back to white?

1.OMG had to click the same button SOOOO MANY TIMES TO ACTUALLY GET TO THIS POST SCREEN OMG. STOP REDIRECTING AND JUST LET US POST CONSIDERING EVERYTHING ELSE IS ARCHIVED TOO! 2. BTW plz make it easier to have 2 copy's of Firefox, that doesn't Auto mess with a completely different install and directory setup. Maybe a Portable version that supports Flash and doesn't actually connect online?

Okay ISSUE:

I downloaded 82.0 Before 2021 and is before Flash was removed from Firefox. When I try to open the .SWF with Firefox it just wants to 'Download' or 'Open' with a program through Firefox instead of actually opening. I came across another post that had an Answer that doesn't seem to be working:

https://support.mozilla.org/gl/questions/1172126

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste plug*ht and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the plugins.http_https_only preference to switch the value from true to false


That method doesn't change anything when trying to open the Flash. I am trying to do this because I have a .SWF that I know works through the Browser on Firefox but doesn't want to load with Ruffle.

I'm using TB as described, but cannot seem to get the text color picker/changer to work properly.

When I open the modal, even when I click on color, I get a black wheel (or circle); while I navigate within the black wheel, the slider element does reflect color. So I select my color, confirm that it's shown, and exit the modal. The selection is not present and is still set at black text as the default -- this is a change, from at least 2 versions ago when I used this in composition.

I have restarted TB in safe mode, I don't really have any addons other that Google calendar.

So before I file a bug report, I wonder if anyone else has experienced this?

Thanks.

I am using the latest version of Tbird on a windows laptop and I can't get any signature file to work properly. It also seems very rudimentary. When I search on the internet trying to solve the problem everyone has menus that are far more complex than what I have. It is impossible to even paste a picture into any email either directly or by trying to do it with a menu. No such menu options exist. Can this be correct? WTF???

Have tried troubleshooting the problem. Refreshed Firefox. Even reinstalled Firefox. Still not going to most sites. it will go to Facebook. It will go to Google. It will not go to most, including the Mozilla help page. This behavior persists whether it is via WiFi or Ethernet with Cox, or Dial-up with NetZero.

The hard disk of my computer was not too well, I bought a new computer and transferred my Thunderbird profile and the Local Folders (which were not within the profile folder on my previous computer). On the new computer, the Local Folders are within the profile folder. When using Thunderbird, all seemed OK, except that some folders in Local Folders were missing or empty, which they were not on my old computer. Investigating the Local Folders showed that some folders missed their foldername.msf file, their foldername file (no extension) and/or possibly their filename.sbd folder. By creating empty files/folders with the correct name and removing msf files where all else was present for the folder, I managed to regain access to some folders, but not all.

When I search for words that occur in folders that are now empty or missing, I get results with messages that are (or should be) in those folders, but I cannot open/access these messages.

What else can I do to regain access to the missing folders and messages, even just recovering (as much as possible of) the contents of the message would help me a lot.

The old hard disk appears to have died during / after transfer of my files and folders. It is now completely inaccessable and should be considered as a total loss. Backups miss the same files/folders, so the corruption was a lot older than I thought - but Thunderbird had full access to the folders that are now empty right until I transferred all my files from old to new computer (with rsync via ssh).

General information : I use Thunderbird for decades, O/S is openSUSE (at least 25 years) now at LEAP 15.3.
