This last update for Firefox was a bust! It has totally rerouted where my downloads go, changed all my settings! How do I go back to the prior version of Firefox? This has really affected my productivity. I need someone from support to answer this question, and I see I'm not the only one with issues.

blank messages after update to version 102.0 & missing header on some messages. Data scrambled?

  1. 1 Image Google Alert (No header and subject and message scramble)
  2. 2 Image GoPro message AOK (From To Subject header displayed with a message in body)
  3. 3 Image Google Alert Wheaton precious metals (From no-reply@email.peacocktv.com, subject Just-added picks for you, blank message)
  4. 4 About Thunderbird

It appears the messages are being mixed together and scrambled? Can I go back to before the update? Thanks, Sam

I'm using Thunderbird 102. I am using the subscribe feature to update email folders. Most are folders directly under Inbox and some are subfolders off inbox.

My question is how do I know I have successfully subscribed a folder?

The attached imagine is an example.

If I click on subscribe or unsubscribe nothing changes. Even after clicking refresh.

So how do I know a folder is successfully subscribed?

I recently had to restore my computer. Doing that I have to get the new firefox which I now have version 102. Updates disabled instantly. I was on version 88. On version 88 this feature was not on it and version 102 now has this feature and I do not like it.

The feature I am talking about is if you open the downloads panel and view the downloads list and right click on one of the downloaded files in list there is now an option to Delete. I accidentlly hit this and thought it was just deleting it from downloads panel. Nope it deletes it from computer permanently, not even to recycle bin. Click Delete its gone for good until download it again.

And this delete option is right above the option remove from history, which I use a lot.

So I want to know how to disable this delete option? Thanks

Since upgrading to Thunderbird 102, I can no longer see nor download any new posts to NNTP newsgroups. When I try to get messages, there is a "flash" giving some number of messages, but they never download. It also seems that any posts I try to make aren't made.

After suffering a disastrous loss of email caused by our web hosting service I've begun to use the Archive function in TB.

The objective is to not lose emails caused by others than myself.

Where are TB Archive folders located specifically? (yes, I understand they are somewhere in my default identity)

If I make a copy of the Archive folder contents located on my computer, put it in a stick drive (for example), delete the entire Archive folder contents located on my computer, can the backed-up folder contents be copied back to the former so that the emails will appear in TB as before?

Or, perhaps you can suggest a simpler way to backup emails?

Thanks,

Craig

Password autofill in other apps is just pain. 1. No autosaving? When using Google password manager, all passwords in other apps are automatically saved. I don't know if Google is using some proprietary API like GMS, but if not I would appreciate this in Firefox. 2. Autofill in other apps looks terribly, because every password is tied to a domain, not an app. We need to have passwords linked to an application, so they can be saved (and autosaved) when entered.

I posted this question yesterday but had to reset my password and I do not know whether my original question has been lost etc. I also think I should mention that I am using a Mac desktop computer using macOS Big Sur Version 11.6.7. Two issues which started at the same time we started using Thunderbird Version 102.0: a) I and my wife are both losing messages. The body of the message is completely empty although the email provider's website still has the complete message. b) We both use the "fetch headers only" option but Thunderbird Version 102.0 ignores this option and downloads the entire message. Please help. Delano Attride 07/04/2022: I just noticed that a valid message is replaced by a blank screen when it is first deleted then you undo the deletion. I think that this is related to the blank message problem. Delano Attride

Gmail freezes & keeps trying to connect. All other sites work & there is no problem with internet connection or speed. Refreshing the tab does not help. I have to close and restart Firefox. I've tried disabling all extensions but as this only happens once every day or so it is difficult to troubleshoot. I have these extensions: AdBlocker Ultimate; Copy Page Address; Copy PlainText; DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials; Enhancer for YouTube; Google Page Translate; Reverse Google Image Search; Tab Mix - Links; Wikipedia-En; YouTube search engine. Thanks.

My address book disappeared after the 102.0 update. I neglected to click on "need more help" after your suggestions so think that my plea went away. Can you think of where my address book went? I used to always be in the task bar at the top. I am including a screen shot of how it looks now.

Thank you so much for any help. I have contributed 3 times (small donations) for your program.

I just upgraded to Thunderbird 102.0 64 bit and now none of my spam or junk filters are working. Years of setting junk and spam are simply erased I guess. I get on average 150-200 spam/junk e-mails a day and now they are all in my in-box.

Is there going to be a fix for this or is there a way to roll back the update?

I just installed TB 102. I have multiple cardDAV accounts set up in Thunderbird, they synchronised fine as far as I can tell. But when I type anything in the field "search all address books", nothing happens. Even if I press enter. The entire list of contacts remains displayed, I can scroll it, as if I never typed anything in the search field...

Any view what I could be doing wrong? I have only two add-ons: Dark Reader and Addon Compatibility Check.

I'm developing a web app locally, which sends emails for password reset, etc.

The emails are HTML and reference images using the full domain, i.e.

However, I also use entries in etc\hosts for different apps, e.g. myapp.localdev.com 127.0.0.1

That works perfectly fine in Firefox when I look at an image directly using the url, e.g.: https://myapp.localdev.com/images/myimage.png

However, when that image is referenced in the email HTML, it does not appear in Thunderbird. If I use then it does appear fine in the email. But if I use it does not appear at all - only the ALT text appears.

I've checked the IIS logs and I can see requests for the image from Firefox, but not from Thunderbird, hence my suspicion is Thunderbird is ignoring the etc\hosts file mapping. It looks like Thunderbird is trying to find the domain on the internet instead of locally.

Is there a way of making Thunderbird respect the hosts file mapping, if that indeed is the problem? Or how I can test for that in Thunderbird?
