I can't for the life of me find out how to stop Thunderbird from deleting my emails form Thunderbird and my email server. I use to think it was after 30 days but my oldest email is from May 11th, today is the 26th. So maybe it's a set size limit. My email is through my web hosting provider and it is set to unlimited. When I asked them they said there's a setting on an email client that is deleting my emails. How do I fix this? I have tried to delete the email account and add it again from scratch but that didn't do anything. Many times I need to access older emails from my customers that are just gone.

I know another person mentioned this before but I didn't see a resolved answer, only that he created a new folder to import his old messages to. Which I don't see how to do that but also feel that's just a band-aid type fix. I want my emails to stop being deleted automatically, only if I delete them.

I have for so long tried to let TB learn what is junk but nothing seems to work. I have also started taking the time to first mark as junk and then go into that junk folder and create a filter. My settings do not seem to make a difference. I have the filter set Mark before junk classification, match ANY of the following (so the @xxxx shows), and in the last section I have tried to set it to DELETE and also to MOVE message to junk folder on that email address. Nothing seems to work. I know there can be many junk senders from the same @xxx address but at some point I would think this "learning" process would take hold. Should I just give up on this timely filters and just mark as junk and then delete? Am i doing something wrong so my filters or junk settings are not filtering out new junk emails?

Hi! Recently I tried to make a payment on a website (using Firefox Nightly for Android) that would not recognize numbers in the dollar amount field. I received a message saying that the field could not be blank, although I had entered a number. I ended using another browser and finished the transaction without issues. Any feedback on this would be very helpful.

Per an article on yahoo news, I decided to clear data by going to: Settings->Privacy & Security->Cookies&Site Date->clear data

In hindsight, this turned out to be a mistake. Previously when using yahoo mail, it let me stay logged in for two weeks. Now I have to log in each time. There are also 2 or 3 other sites that logged me in automatically, but now have to log in every time.

How can I undo what I did?

Thank you for any help you can offer,

I recently downloaded firefox on my new computer, and want to login on my account. I am supposed to get this 5 min auth code (that is actually 20 min according to some sources) on email. Funny thing is I am getting this email one hour or so later. I have added firefox as a contact and done everything in my might to get my mail services to run faster, however I am still getting my 6 digit code way to slow. I've been doing this for a day now, is there another option?

Random videos will not load following 100.0.2 install.

These symptoms started @ May 21. (See attached file "Recently installed")

This problem is 100% reproducible at: https://www.reddit.com/r/CatastrophicFailure/

Lenovo Thinkpad x140e Windows 7 (all updates installed) Mozilla 100.2.8174

Scrolling down the Reddit page, videos will auto-play when exposed, and stop when scrolled past.

A video not loading/playing will occur on different posts/videos, but will ALWAYS occur. Once this occurs some previously exposed / played videos, when scrolling up, will play when exposed again, and some will not.

This will also randomly occur on Youtube (also observed on Twitter a few times) when multiple tabs are open. Sometimes closing other open tabs corrects the problem. Other times closing Firefox and relaunching is required and is 100% effective.

I have additional diag data / Inspector log files and page source if needed.

Thank you in advance for your help and consideration. - LudditePro

I have a lot of issues with my mailbox. Constantly have to repair folders because the wrong subject shows on the wrong email. A big one I had was my inbox getting bogged down, but I learned it doesn't like to have more than a couple thousand emails in it. I kept getting a "exceeded maximum number of connections" error but read something about too many folders, got rid of a few folders and that error went away.

1) What other kinds of tips are there for keeping TB behaving well? 2) I see that my profile has a lot of old files for old folders that don't exist anymore. There's also nstmp files and foldercache.json files. Should I delete all these types of things to clean up? Or should I just start fresh with a new profile and re-download all my email messages? I can't imagine how long that will take because sometimes folders download quickly but other times take forever and I'm not sure the difference. I just downloaded a 4000 email folder in a 20th the time of another 2000 email folder.

I am totally updated with Firefox, plus i cleared out everything in my history. That did not help. When i tried to get onto these websites with Chrome web browser i do not have this problem at all. Why is this? I have BitDefender Total Security newest version for home. My firewall is through them along with virus protections. So can you help me out with this ongoing problem getting on some websites?

Hey there, I'm having trouble with Firefox. Something inside Firefox is eating up my RAM and CPU. Usually I recognize the problem happening because my laptop fans ramp up. The problem occurs on my laptop as well on my desktop (both on latest stable Firefox[Build ID: 20220513165813] and Windows 11). The workaround is to kill the Firefox subprocess which is using most of the CPU and RAM. Then everything is back to normal for some time, until Firefox starts messing with me again.

While trying to pinpoint the problem I'm stuck. I can't find a culprit other than the fact it has something to do with Firefox. Clean reinstalling did not help. The Firefox Task Manager doesn't know anything about huge amounts of RAM being taken. I searched for solutions on the net and the about:memory indicates the problem is some IPC related stuff:

 {
  "process": "Main Process (pid 12648)",
  "path": "queued-ipc-messages/content-parent(Browser, pid=9612, open channel, 0x22e4b33fc30, refcnt=38)",
  "kind": 2,
  "units": 1,
  "amount": 0,
  "description": "The number of unset IPC messages held in this ContentParent's channel.  A large value here might indicate that we're leaking messages.  Similarly, a ContentParent object for a process that's no longer running could indicate that we're leaking ContentParents."
 }

The bug reporting guidelines(https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/page.cgi?id=bug-writing.html) are encouraging me to attach steps to reproduce and try the steps listed on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-uses-too-much-memory-or-cpu-resources . But I've exhausted the steps there (Except for upgrading the PC / RAM).

Especially on the go this Firefox-RAM-Party takes quite some battery and right now while writing this Firefox has >100GB virtual RAM reserved for some IPC messages, I personally think this is too much. So I'd like to file a report, but without steps to reproduce I'm afraid the developers are going to say 'well, that's something we are not able to diagnose', because I am unable to explain how to reproduce it. It just happens from time to time.

The anonymized about:memory report: https://bin.disroot.org/?2ba01ef78154cce4#8PLVqLTd9qgaRn2QVX2P17hkbHQyrTDuVAwoykj2cBxg

I left Firefox running like this for about half an hour and at 138GB reserved RAM Windows slaughtered my Firefox. The resulting crash report: https://bin.disroot.org/?0bc57492585dde4b#5YtbWgXcbZSkWYmg2CGkVn9iiipYwfYbxUfCLhmMJh7d

Do you have a clue where I might find out who sends those IPC messages, and therefore who is responsible for this?

Hi I have my email on my server with my hosting company for various sites. Nothing has changed on this set up for years and now in the last week I am getting the message "connection to server "my site" has timed out." but only for the two emails associated with this one particular site. I deleted the smtp, deleted the incoming settings, added back, same error. The email is working fine on my other devices and the emails for the other sites are all working fine on thunderbird, too. Thunderbird is up to date. Any ideas?

I'm sure I've always had years of emails in my Bins, but recently noticed 1 Bin only having about 1mth's. They go back years in All Mail. 1 account's Bin has had emails put in during the last month, but is empty. I just tapped on another, an account not used much now, where I've kept seeing emails from a long time ago. On tapping, I could see them all for a split second, then they vanished. I want to keep all my deleted emails in my Bins.

Thunderbird 68 - deliberately not updating. Server Settings > When I delete a msg: Move it to Bin. Storage: neither option ticked (neither checked, if you're American). Synchronisation > Msg Synchronising > Keep in all folders. Advanced > all ticked. Disc Space > Synchronise all regardless of age. Don't delete any.

Gmail > Forwarding & IMAP > IMAP access: Auto-Expunge off. Archive the msg. Do not limit.

Any help greatly appreciated.
