This problem has only occurred in the last 24 hours:

a) I access a Word file with Firefox (maybe an e-mail attachment, maybe directly from an e-learning site); I tell Firefox to Open With Word 365; the file opens, but only in Read-only mode - I cannot edit the document at all; I cannot change this status from within Word 365.

b) I access the very same file from the very same source but now tell Firefox to Save File to my Desktop; I then open the file with Word 365 - it opens 'normally'; I can edit the document straight away.

Yesterday, it did not matter if I did a) or b), I could always edit the document straight away (Read-only was never 'forced' on me).

As extra background, I have turned off every Protected View feature in Word 365 which I can find - does not help at all.

I want to be able to go back to option a): Open With Word 365, NOT have 'Read-only' & be able to edit the document immediately.

Running Thunderbird 102.7.1. Accidently deleted C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird yesterday. After recovering the particular Thunderbird folder and coping it back to C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming, Thunderbird doesn't recognize my profiles, calendar, tasks, etc. but rather opens Home as shown in the attached picture. I've had 6 email accounts connected and was about to connect the 7th.

I also tried copying profile files + profile.ini to the newly created profile folder when I restart Thunderbird, but no success - the same Home appears.

Hello! Not sure if I selected the best topic for my question.

I've been using Thunderbird with absolutely no problems for quite a few years. Love it! I will be changing internet providers and will not be able to keep my current email address so I created a new Gmail address. I know there's info on how to connect the Gmail account to my Thunderbird installation, which I will attempt to do. However, from my current email provider I have thousands of emails and quite a few folders and I would like to keep all those emails and folders in my Thunderbird after I leave the provider even though it will be disconnected. Like historical information I suppose. Is this possible in Thunderbird? I know I will disconnect from current provider in the connection settings, but when I connect to Gmail, will my emails and folders still remain?

I hope I explained my question ok, thanks in advance for any advice.

I've the same problem as https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1317794#question-reply but after following the steps for the solution, it doesn't work for me. Does it have to do with all updates since this question was answered? I've created the chrome folder. I've created userChrome.css file and added the following without "`" marks in it and saved it and restarted firefox after changing the toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets = true . ``` @namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

  1. appMenu-fxa-label > .toolbarbutton-text { visibility:hidden !important; }

```

It doesn't work for me. Please have a look.

I don't necessarily need the 2 accounts side by side but merely the ability to toggle between the two

Sync is a nightmare. It is so unintuitive! What exactly would be wrong with having separate Export and Import buttons for each of Settings, Addons, Tabs, History, Bookmarks, etc? I have a desktop box and a newer laptop I wanted to get up to date. I pressed the Sync button on the desktop ... By the way, there`s a link below that reads "Connect another device" ... Connect where? Someone is designing these interfaces who has absolutely zero imagination. Anyways, I signed off, moved the ethernet cable to my laptop, signed in, pressed Sync, and voila!, I got my Bookmarks, at least. But I have no idea how to get my tabs and windows. I tried with a "download link" something or other, but it seemed to assume I was sync-ing to a phone, and didn`t work. Any way to get my tabs?

5 hr. ago Dell Latitude, Windows 10. Firefox will not display formatting options (such as italics, bold, underline, delete, etc.) in gmail. The only way to display the options is by hovering the cursor over the blank space above the name of the person it's going to (or received mail, just to be able to delete it) until an option appears. Nothing is indicated, and I have to move the cursor until I find the desired option and then click on it. The same thing happens in Chrome. This is totally crazy-making (insofar as gmail worked perfectly until a short time ago) and I'd welcome your suggestions and input.

Goodmorning, I'm trying to make a backup of my bookmarks on my desktop in order to transfer this to my laptop, but it doesn't work. I also tried to make an export file which doesn't go either. The reason why I want these files is that the laptop (that had not been used for a couple of weeks) synchronized my desktop bookmarks with older data. So I put the correct data back in Firefox of the desktop and that worked fine. Now I want the same data in my laptop but I can´t make a suitable file. What more can I do?

Someone send me an email with EXCEL attachment but the files I received using Thundermail mail client the attachments becomes symbols and cannot be opened. (see attached image)

The same email was also cc copy to my hotmail account and I can see the attachment from my hotmail which is an EXCEL file and I can open it and use it as normal.

Anyone know how to fix this?

Other files like PDF, JPEG are no problem.

This problem only happen in one of the people who send me the Excel file, other people who send me Excel I can read and open normally so far.
