I use Win 10 Pro. If I want to copy something - a document or site address or use any other control in the menu, sometimes the menu options appear and sometimes they don't. Sometimes nothing happens and I have to hit Esc several times to get a program or menu selection to work. Occasionally, I even have to reboot. I seldom use other browsers but when I do, they don't seem to have a problem. I'm thinking of resetting Firefox but I'm concerned about everything I'll lose. I've tried to simply update my browser but it doesn't help. Suggestions?

Why can a stupid failing script on a web-page, or even intentionally so programmed script disable the copy (and sometimes paste) functionality?

How can this be disabled/fixed?

One highlights a text (any text) on some web sites, Edit menu allows Copy, context menu allows Copy, one hits Copy, nothing happens. It's not even a page where someone wanted to "copy protect" some information.

Copy and Paste should work just as advertised since those were invented, how hard can it be to get that right? Even stupid Notepad never fails at it. And no, I don't care what the idiot who programmed a page though would be/should be best for me, I want Copy to be copy, Paste to be paste. This used to work in "original" Firefoxes even when page developers wanted to make it not work.

And yes, while on a given page Copy fails miserably, at the same time in other pages it works.

After upgrading to FF 84, my previous sessions are no longer saved and restored unless I restart in Safe Mode.

- I have Restore previous session checked in Preferences.

- I have opened new windows and tabs and one by one disabled and restored every add-on that I have had enabled and quit and restarted each time, until every single add-on has been disabled, and still the previous sessions are not saved and restored.

- I have looked in the sessionstore-backups folder with each restart, and there is never any file for the previous sessions in it.

- Again, even when there are absolutely no add-ons enabled, the previous session is not saved and not restored.

- Again, only when I restart in Safe Mode is the previous session saved and restored.

What is the solution?

  1. 1. Ought to have a "Suggestions" in the topic list.

My observation is that you have just changed the Bookmark Lookup function to show only bookmarks. It use to show folders as well. When I wanted to find a bookmark, it is often to move it to a more "consistent" place in bookmark map, and you can't do that any more.

Also on the Bookmark Edit page, it would be awfully helpful to have it's folder label displayed there as well.

So I change the Message Filters. When finished, click "Run Now"

Some of the time, the filters run and implement the change I just made (and presumably run all of the other filters also). Some of the time nothing happens.

I'm sure there is a pattern, but I don't see it.

Would appreciate an explanation (or pointer to information) that explains why.

thx,

hi, I'm having problems with Firefox on my Mac - every time Firefox is shut down, I have to relog in and authenticate myself and all my settings have gone so I have to redo them again. I have tools that I use for work that use certain settings else they don't work so I have to redo them every time I reopen the browser or shut my machine down. anyone know why this might be the case?

I don't know if it's linked but when I started using this current machine last year and loaded everything on, Firefox is sitting under 'locations' rather than applications and I don't seem to able to install it anywhere else - see image attached.

Many thanks.

As the title says, the text wrapping is not working correctly in incoming HTML messages. This results in having to scroll horizontally with almost all HTML formatted messages, before the update maybe 1/10 messages required horizontal scrolling.

I use the vertical view and plain text word wrapping works as expected.

Thanks

Can sent from one account but not another with the same SMTP

Hi all;

I'm running Thunderbird 78.6.0 (32-bit), Windows 10.

I have two accounts on a domain, call them primary@domain.com and secondary@domain.com. This domain does not have an SMTP server.

I have a third account on a commercial service - Mailbox.org - call it account@mailbox.org.

In the Outgoing SMTP server section of Account Settings, I've set up the Mailbox.org SMTP as the server, with the account@mailbox.org login settings.

Both account primary@domain.com and secondary@domain.com have "Outgoing Server (SMTP)" pointing to that default "Mailbox.org (SMTP)"

When I send as account@mailbox.org, it sents without problem.

When I send as user primary@domain.com, it sends without problem.

When I send as user secondary@domain.com, it fails with "<secondary@domain.com> Sender address rejected".

The thing is, all three point to the same SMTP server, with the same SMTP credentials. I've deleted the password and reset it, with no difference.

For some reason, when using primary@domain, the SMTP server uses the stored account@mailbox.org settings, as it should. But when using secondary@domain, somehow the SMTP server is ignoring those credentials. I don't see any configuration differences between primary and secondary.

In Thunderbird, account primary@domain.com has the outgoing SMTP server configured to use the account@mailbox.org account's credentials. I can't see how primary and secondary are any different, other than one works, and the other doesn't.

I've duplicated the SMTP settings to an SMTP2 server, with the same result. The primary can always send, but the secondary cannot.

This is probably something simple, and some setting somewhere, but I can't find it.
