Running: WIN 10 PRO FIREFOX 81.0.2 (64-BIT) THUNDERBIRD 68.121 (32-BIT) NORTON SECURITY 22.20.5.39 Xfinity ISP

Ran Thunderbird for years without a problem until 2 days ago, I cannot send or receive email using Thunderbird from my pc or other devices. When attempting to get new mail, receive following: “Alert from account [email@comcast.net temporarily blacklisted IP Address”. Also receive following error message “Login to server imap.comcast.net with username [email]@comcast.net failed” Attached is screenshot showing both alert and error messages. I attempted several times “Retry” and re-entering password. All attempts failed! I can log on to Xfinity.NET on the internet via Firefox, retrieve, read and send mail from Xfinity.net website. I cannot do the same using Thunderbird. Attempted fixes to include: disconnect of Norton anti-virus/firewall, reset password on Xfinity, reset WINS to an earlier date, use a different modem, changed passwords, all failed to fix problem. I am not a technical savvy individual and really need help in solving this problem, can someone help me: • Who has “blacklisted” my email? Comcast, Firefox, Thunderbird, Norton, WIN 10? • What has caused this to happen? • What do I need to do rectify the problem and get Thunderbird working again? Greatly appreciate any assistance you can give me.

Regards, Ed [email]@comcast.net

this is a copy of something I just sent to the ubuntu forum. It explains my problem:

   I have been noticing that, sometimes, I can't shut down a program. This has happened with firefox, thunderbird and, now, livepatch. When this happens it also means that , again for instance, I am having problems typing this as things freeze. I have tried to shut down stuff from the program (which accepts nothing and is frozen), from the dock, and also tried to run system monitor which started, had the icon but wouldn't open. Basically my machine is in partial lockdown and there doesn't seem to be a damned thing that I can do. I am resisting just pressing buttons (always a mistake) but this is really frustrating. Oh, the livepatch box, that receives input, is also dimmed and will not go away. This little note took me 15 minutes to type.
   It got so bad that I started pushing buttons. The only other thing I had open was Firefox. I shutdown firefox and, suddenly, the livepatch connection, through software and updates, shut down on its own. For me this means that I have a problem with firefox and will be paying them a visit. Still, any thought are welcome as this one is starting to really get to me.
   thank you..................

Before the switch to Quantum, there were addons like Extension list dumper and Infolister.

Currently, Chrome has a nice extension called Share Extensions for Google Chrome™, which, basically, is what I'm looking for in Firefox. Share Extensions for Google Chrome™ exports an html file with each addons' description and it's name is also a hyperlink to it's page in the Chrome Web Store. It has no version info, but better that nothing.

My searches for any kind of list exporter came up empty.

I don't know why I can't find any help articles on this, I can't possibly be the only one. My firefox account is not syncing between my devices. I am logged in to my firefox account on all of my devices. I only have one account. I can save a password on one, but it does not save on my account and I am not able to retrieve it between devices. What is the point of syncing if I can't access my passwords on other accounts? And yes, I have sync turned on. Also, why does it not auto fill across devices when the password is saved?? It seems like a useless feature.

Since updating to Android version 81.1.4 (which I don't particularly like as the whole fabric of the app renders it more difficult to use) I have had problems syncing across my Windows 10 desktop, my Apple MacBook Pro (OS X 10.15.7) and Android phone. It is as if the last update to both Android and the Windows version of Firefox have destroyed the syncing process that previously existed. Trying to follow the prescribed process for syncing has also proven difficult to the point of frustration. I seek a clear set of the steps involved with explanations of the steps that appear to me to have been omitted by the Firefox cognoscenti so that I can achieve the synchronisation of passwords and bookmarks across platforms. To help understand where I am at in the process and what is going wrong, I have tried to sync devices and add devices by opening Firefox on my Windows desktop and logging into my account. From there I select Account settings-Sync settings-Connect another device. This opens a new tab (Connect another device that has a dialogue box with a 'Show code' button. Clicking on the button produces another dialogue box with a Q-Code displayed that is supposed to 'scan in the code from within Sync settings'. From there on I am lost. I cannot discern any Q-code viewer within the sync settings on my Android device and using my camera results in nothing but an image of the code. Can someone please help with a clear explanation of what I need to do to synchronise Firefox across my platforms and restore my faith in the browser that has served me well for about the past two decades? I have neither the time nor inclination to trawl through all the KB articles that appear somewhat related but prove simply to add to my frustration with the product.

I have recently updated to version 81.0.2 of Firefox, and have noticed that for some reason, twitter will randomly sign me out for no reason even if I don't sign out of the site when I close the tab, forcing me to sign back in every so often. Curiously, something similar happens with gmail, as it will make me sign in both of my email accounts, even though normally when I bring up the gmail website it usually just asks which account I wish to sign in to. I have not cleared my cookies in the last few days, nor my cache, so this shouldn't be happening. What exactly is happening here? I didn't have this problem in the previous version of Firefox. Can anyone help?

Hi!

For quite some time I run Firefox in KDE over wayland using Gentoo package. Recently I enabled webrender to fix bad flickering while loading sites, and while that worked I now see garbled text display towards the end of longer web pages. I do not remember which Firefox version it was when I switched on webrender, but the issue persists through a few recent Firefox upgrades till my current 81.0.2 (this is Gentoo linux build)

Attached screenshot is of the bottom of this page https://cdn.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v5.x/ChangeLog-5.8.15 While top of page is always good looking, garbled text starts somewhere towards the end of page.

I'm not sure if this is a new issue or the same one as in bug 1667534.

Is there any easy option to fix this, or this should be filed as new bug?
