Since the latest firefox update, to clear history now, it has Clear site and download, saved form info, and searches all together now. There is no way to uncheck saved info and searches so that does not get cleared. Will there be a fix to this? There is no way to clear the history now without clearing the saved info and searches, which I do not want to do.

Latest update (127.0.2) erased all my data. Gone are my bookmarks, passwords, sign-in shortcuts, history, etc. and I'm trying not to panic. Most of my passwords are backed up but my bookmarks are gone as is all my sign-in shortcuts, etc.

I always try to keep updated and never have had a problem with anything other than having to relearn a few new things; but this is a first for me.

Hi,

Let's say you're opening an email in thunderbird, and it's an email you've been exchanging with someone for a long time. As you scroll down, the older emails are indented to the right, making the view of the email "narrower and narrower". What is the setting or method to prevent this from happening?

Thanks in advance!

As of today, I am unable to scroll with my mouse in google sheets. The scroll bar on the right disappears and I'm taken to the bottom of the spreadsheet and can't scroll back up. I have to use CTRL+Home and then the arrow keys to go down the rows. This appears to be only on Firefox. I tried a different browser and it worked fine.

On Opera and Chrome, I am logged in as a google user. I make a diary available from a web page which is limited as to how the viewer sees it. If I (or another authorised user) is viewing it then they see all the detail. If anyone else sees it then they only see 'busy' against all the bookings. This has worked fine for years.

On changing to Firefox, though, when the web diary is accessed - even though I am logged in properly - it only shows the 'busy' view. It seems as if it's not maintaining my google login, hence showing the 'incorrect' view.

Is there anything that I can change to make this work properly?

TIA

It must have been one of those nutty "...something I did" things that made a second account identity appear one day. I use a Unified Folders mode exclusively, and the subject account is my primary account (identical to the first Unified listing), but some action on my part made it pop up below as well, just above 'Local Folders.' The only subfolder under this redundant appearance is 'Templates,' which is empty. The unwanted appearance starts out in a blue font, but turns black (as shown below) once the 'Templates' folder is clicked on. Can I get rid of this somehow?

I have searched for a solution but can only find a reference which suggests that the problem has something to do with Evolution, (the file handler, not Darwin's theory). Any suggestions? Cheers Ian

Hi, I've received the email below from Microsoft today.

I have 15 email accounts linked to Thunderbird mail and use up to 5 of them daily. Sometimes 'instant' communications on one or more of my accounts can be important.

Will Thunderbird mail still function in the same way from 16th September?

I apologise if this question has been answered somewhere else. I searched but could not find it.


"The safety and security of your information is top priority for Microsoft. To help keep your account secure, Microsoft will no longer support the use of third-party email and calendar apps which ask you to sign in with only your Microsoft Account username and password. To keep you safe you will need to use a mail or calendar app which supports Microsoft’s modern authentication methods. If you do not act, your third-party email apps will no longer be able to access your Outlook.com, Hotmail or Live.com email address on September 16th.

What do you need to do?

If you are receiving this email, you are currently using an email or calendar app that uses a less secure authentication method to connect to your Outlook.com email account. You will need to upgrade your third-party mail and calendar app to a version which supports modern authentication methods.

Microsoft provides free versions of Outlook for your PC, Mac, iOS, and Android devices which can be easily downloaded and connect to your email account. Using an updated version of an Outlook application will ensure you are connecting in the most secure way.

How can you set up your Gmail, Apple Mail, or other third-party mail application?

Various non-Microsoft applications will have their own steps for connecting to your Outlook.com email account using modern authentication methods. See our help article - Modern Authentication Methods now needed to continue syncing Outlook Email in non-Microsoft email apps. However, you may need to contact the creators of those applications to provide you with instructions. In many cases, simply removing and re-adding your account with the latest version of that application will configure it to use modern authentication methods."

I back up my TB profile every few months. I just went thru the Cox-Yahoo email conversion and I am getting emails. When I did my back up, I noticed in the properties it had one more folder and the files went from 1311 to 2585 files. Is something wrong? Do I need to compare and research what is causing this or just move on!

I was using Firefox when suddenly it was no longer there. When I clicked on the icon, it reopened, with all my bookmarks and history, but no tabs! I stupidly shut it down again. The forums all said to just go to History > Restore Previous Session, only there was no such option in History. I tried to do a Windows System Restore to several days ago, but it keeps failing and suggesting that I turn off my anti-virus, which I have. Further reading in the Mozilla forums said to take an old upgrade.jsonlz4-20240618110440 (or whatever date) file from the sessionstore-backups folder and move it into the main profile folder and rename it sessionstore.jsonlz4 (I can no longer use the recovery.jsonlz or previous.jsonlz files because I'd stupidly shut down Firefox after it had loaded with no tabs). I have done this and restarted Firefox, but still get no tabs. That file is huge (22MB) and I've examined its contents and can verify that the tabs are there. So why isn't Firefox reading it when I run it and displaying my tabs? I did see that other people on the forums had this problem but I didn't see a solution. One remote possibility may be that my current version is 127.0.2 (64-bit), while the upgrade.jzonlz... file was clearly generated as a snapshot of when the version was 127.0.1. What can I do to restore my tabs, in light of the fact that I don't have a recovery.jsonlz or previous.jsonlz file with the tabs any more and Windows System Restore is unable to restore my system to several days ago?

to select two or more messages on the message pane, one method is to hold down the CTRL key and left click on the messages you want to select. This has stopped working on my Thunderbird. When I select a message and then go on to select the next message, the first message I selected is deselected. So I can only select one message for an operation, e.g. "move", "delete", rather than a group of messages.

I composed an outgoing email message that I wanted to keep for future use, and saved it as a Template. That not only saved it under the unified Templates heading, but created a second appearance of my main email account with its own Templates subfolder. At that point I decided I really didn't want to keep it after all, so I deleted the message, but the second Templates folder didn't disappear; its still on the tree list as an empty folder. Right-clicking that folder doesn't have a Delete function, but it does present a Repair option, but running that doesn't help. How do I get rid of that unneeded individual email account listing and the empty Templates folder?
