My Tools > Clear Recent History... does nothing??

Repaired folder and checked "browser.cache.disk.enable;true"

Currently Thunderbird 77.0b2 20200511021338 but noticed in b1

Any thoughts?

What does "does nothing" mean?

I have Thunderbird set to not remember websites and links, accept third party cookies from visited sites and to keep them until I close Thunderbird.

Cache has a "Clear Now" button in Options > General under the Disk Space heading.

thanks, probably was a bit too brief.

Previously when you clicked on Tools > Clear Recent History a window would appear offering options to Clear All History on a time range basis for Browsing History, Cookies and Cache. This window does not appear in my 77b1 or 77b2.

A simple Ctrl+Shift+Delete was a convienient way to tidy-up, even if I do have Privacy > Web Content set to minimise acceptance and to clear cookies on exit also it's one less step than going to ..Disk Space > Clean Now to remove cache.

Hopefully this is a clearer explanation of what I have noticed with my 77b install and will generate some further advice

I hardly ever use that, but just tried it in TB 68.8.0 and see the "Clear Recent History" dialog window.

Then started TB 77.0b2 and can reproduce the issue.

I suggest you file a bug report at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/

EDIT: Make a note that it works in 76.0b3 and is broken in 77.0b1.
