This problem might be unique to Mac OS, and may not even be a Firefox issue at all, but I had to try and see if there was an answer in here somewhere. I frequently use the "copy-image" command from the right-click contextual menu from within Firefox. When I paste that image into a text message for example, it's converted to a TIFF, regardless of the actual format it's in on the website I found it. Unfortunately, Android phones won't accept a text with a TIFF image, causing a delivery failure. There's more reasons why this is annoying, but that's the main one. Is there any way to make sure that copy command retains the original format of the image when copied to the clipboard? Thanks.

I'm only able to open the Preferences window by typing about:preferences in the address bar. If I keep a Preferences tab available, I'm able to navigate to that window using the aforementioned methods.

Any ideas?

Many thanks

Running Thunderbird on Ubuntu, using operating system color scheme. Prior to upgrade to 78.7.1, calendar background was white, with muted colors for weekend, current day.

Two issues after upgrade:

1 - edit a single entry of a recurring sequence (changing the day); saving the change causes the background color to change to black, with purple for saturday and dark olive for sunday (not my idea of good colors, and definitely not what I want) [ just encountered a second way of causing the calendar color change - start Thunderbird, calendar shows operating system color scheme; change focus to another window then select thunderbird - colors change to black/purple/olive ]

2 - restarting thunderbird restores the operating system color scheme for calendar but the change to the single entry of the recurring series is lost (reverts to the recurring series value)

Any ideas?

Hello. I'm a happy camper. Just converted a bunch of old .pst files to .mbox, installed Thunderbird on my Mac, and have been able to access them. Awesome sauce!

I'm on a roll-- why not go for even more? Instead of having 3-4 different folders in Local Folders, is there a way I can consolidate them into one? These archives are all from same job, but span different time frames.

It might be as easy as dragging everything into one folder, but figured I should check with the experts before breaking anything. Oh, and if there *are* messages that somehow appeared in more than one archive, will "duplicates in the merged folder" be the only problem it causes?

Thanks much!

I recently subscribed to Mozilla VPN and it's been working fine for a couple of weeks. But in the last 24 hours something changed and it won't stay connected. No matter what location I choose (NY, Chicago, etc.) and turn it on, it almost immediately disconnects with the error message "Couldn't start VPN." Most recent log entries are as follows:

The tab bar should distinguish the active tab (in part) by removing its bottom border. When I restart Firefox, the tab bar displays correctly but before long that bottom border of the active tab reappears. Changing to a different theme doesn't help. All I can think of is that perhaps I have too many add-ons or bookmarks installed. (I currently have just under 50 add-ons.) What can I do to keep that bottom border off the active tab?

Hi,

I'm running TB 78.7.1 on Windows 10 and have my local folders saved to a USB drive. My USB was assigned as the F: drive and I'd configured TB to use this drive for the local folders. After many successful uses of the USB on the F: drive, the next time I started TB I noticed that my PC had assigned the USB to the G: drive. Within TB, I changed the local folder from F: to G: and restarted TB as prompted. After restarting, TB had deleted all the folders on my USB! The USB now has files such as:

[Gmail].sdb [Gmail].msf filterlog.html inbox.msf msgFilterRules.dat Templates.msf Trash Trash.msf Unsent Messages Unset Messages.msf

I found a file recovery tool and was able to restore some of the deleted files. This was a painstaking process. After restoring the files and folders on the USB I was able to get TB to recognize my local folders again using the F: drive. Today, I plugged in my USB and once again the PC assigned it to the G: drive while TB was configured with F:. Instead of changing the TB configuration, I decided to use 'Computer Management' and changed the USB drive from G: to F:. I kicked off TB but it still deleted my local folders and left files similar to the ones listed above. Why is TB behaving this way? I need to use the USB for my local folders since this is a shared PC. Is there a way to stop TB from deleting my local folders on my USB or is this a bug? Thanks in advance for any help!

Lately I've been repeatedly asked for my SMTP password on the first email I send of the day (until closing TB) from certain accounts of those I have.

There appears to be nowhere where I can just ADD an SMTP account and it's respective password.

The particular accou8nt does not appear in the SMTP list of about ten accounts I have. Thus I can't edit it.

Believe me, for the two accounts in which this has been happening, they were once in that list.

Now the account is there but the smtp usage data is not on a line.

And when I do enter the respective password, TB does not ask me to remember it nor make an addition to the SMTP list.

hello,

I use SAS University Edition to learn how to improve my SAS knowledge.

It's installed via a VM and once installed, you just have to type http://http://localhost:10080/ in the browser to open the SAS session. It worked for months, until new releases of Firefox. I disabled the HTTPS only mode on Firefox.

Now I get a Firefox error message "Cette adresse est interdite - Cette adresse utilise un port réseau inhabituel pour la navigation web. Par mesure de sécurité, Firefox a abandonné la requête." Forbidden address, due to unusual network port usage.

How can I log on my virtual machine? Where are the parameters that restrict the access to http sites and how can I manage them?

Thank you for your help, PY
