What I see is (1) on a new message, the send button is greyed out, but if I clear the Bcc field it *appears* to become active and (2) on a reply, the Send button is greyed out, but clearing Bcc doesn't do anything to the Send button. In BOTH cases, the Send button--whether it appears active or not--does nothing.

Thanks. I guess I've been unclear. I CANNOT send any e-mail with Thunderbird 91 under any circumstances. New, reply, doesn't matter. Nothing will send. Either the Send button is greyed out (on replies) or does nothing (new messages).
The Bcc thing is just possibly a clue, but it doesn't alter this fact.

My external network connection was set up before the days of NetworkManager,
configured in a /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts ifcfg file.
It has a bunch of IPADDR settings, for the public IPs.
"nmcli connection show" shows the connection just fine. "ipv4.addresses"
lists the IP addresses that get fished out of the ifcfg file, for example.
There's nothing in /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections so I take that
NetworkManager is reading the initscripts directly.
I need to change these IP addresses. What's the least painful way to do that?
Just edit the ifcfg file, and restart Network Manager?
Attempt to update them via nmcli (I have to work out the syntax)? Will that
work, and update the ifcfg files?

I have been experiencing an issue on sporadic occasions. Having worked
on my laptop, I close the lid and expect it to suspend. An hour later I
open the lid, I see that it is on (not suspended) and am shown a black
screen and the laptop is smoking hot (really hot). I hard shutdown turns
the system off (havent tried any other way to get the system working
because the temperature is so high I get scared, I dont really remember
if the fans were on at this point, although I believe they are not
because the temperature is really high).
This has happened a few times, but is not happening always. How can I
test suspend action when laptop lid is closed? How can I test the laptop
lid close sensor is working? What can I do if this happens again? Is
there a way to log temperatures to make sure the system is shutting down
when high temperatures are reached?
System: Fedora WS 34 on Dell XPS 15 with 4K touchscreen (this screen is
heavy and I believe could generate a lot of heat too if it is left on).
When I try to run a VMware virtual desktop, my keyboard shortcuts (such as alt+tab) are all intercepted by the host OS (Fedora 34 Workstation) rather than going to the virtual desktop. This only happens if I'm using Wayland on the host OS, and goes away if I switch to Xorg. Looking around on the web, I saw a hint that if I go to Gnome's Settings and look for VMware under Applications, there would be a switch I can flip to enable VMware to capture the keyboard shortcuts. There wasn't one. I also found a hint that adding the window's WM_CLASS to org.gnome.mutter.wayland xwayland-grab-access-rules might help, but it did not. Any other ideas on how I could get this to work? It's extremely inconvenient to use a virtual desktop when all my shortcuts go to the host. I'm very close to being able to use Wayland for everything, and it'd be nice to be able to knock down the last few obstacles before Gnome decides to deprecate running under Xorg.
Terveisin / Regards,
I have several of issues with the latest Thunderbird e-mail tool that came down via dnf lately; thunderbird-91.1.0-1.fc34.x86_64. (Prior version was 78.something.) Some are just annoying; one is major.
First, annoying. Starting a new message, the Send button is grayed out *IF* there is anything in the Bcc field. As I normally Bcc myself on all messages, this hits every time. Clearing the field, re-enables the Send button. Refilling the Bcc field does NOT cause the Send button to go gray.
Second, more annoying, when trying to reply to a message, the Send box is grayed out and cannot be restored, even by clearing the Bcc box. I have not found any way to actually send a reply (other than to go to my mobile phone and do it there).
Third, less annoying, access to my local on-disk mailspool (referred to in Thunderbird as "movemail") has disappeared. Not a big deal, as I can review local logfiles with a command-line mailtool like good ole 'mailx.'
Fourth, and a major problem, my Address Book has disappeared. The data appears to still be there, as I can start typing an address and have it auto-completed, but the address book itself appears empty, and can't be opened for browsing.
FLASH: after all this Send totally fails, even though button appears active, so this saved draft was called up and sent from phone.

This almost feels like a ritual that I go through every 3-4 years: figure
out how to disable the laptop's obnoxious touchpad from registering phantom
This time around Google claims XFCE's "Mouse and Touchpad" settings has a
checkbox for that. Google also gives instructions for using synclient, which
appears to be obsolete.
So, what's the right procedure for this (this year)?
Those of you guys who happen to have remote f34 systems - do
your remote Firefox via 'ssh -YC' like mine is 'unusable'?
Mine hangs almost immediately, has only brief moments when
becomes responsive and the reason why I paint specifically
Firefox as the villain is such, that Chrome and Chrome based
web browsers, eg. Brave, Chromium, Vivaldi, all work okey.
