Hello dear Firefox experts,

I have been using Firefox for years and of course I would like to continue doing so. :-)

I work with Windows 10 and have learned to appreciate the virtual desktops, which can be set up via the key combination "Windows + Tab". About the desktops can then be distinguished, for example, in "Office" and "Private".

In total, I have actively set up 4 different desktops.

FF I have set up as the "default app" in the Windows settings.

Now it is the case that I have a Firefox window open in the "private desktop", for example.

But when I work in the "office desktop" and click on a URL, the office desktop automatically switches to the private desktop and opens the URL in the FF already opened there in a new tab! :-(

So I have to remember before to open a new Firefox window in the office desktop to display the desired page also on this desktop.

Unfortunately, this doesn't always work.

If I work in the meantime in another of the 4 active desktops and use Firefox there and return to the office desktop and want to open a URL there again, the desktop jumps back to where I last used the already opened FF. This is quite annoying in the long run.

That's why I ran a test today with Google Chrome and MS Edge and defined each of them as the default app for testing.

Stupidly, these two browsers work exactly as I want them to. If I have already opened one of these browsers in another desktop, the URL will still open in the current desktop and any additional URL as another tab will correctly open in the current desktop.

If I now switch to the private desktop and open a URL there, it will correctly open in a new tab in this desktop.

I hope I was able to illustrate my "problem" so far?

Now my question? How can I change the behavior in FF? This seems to be a standard of FF in contrast to both other browser programs. Disabling in the FF settings "Open links in tabs instead of new windows" seems to be only a rudimentary solution;

but then a new window is opened every time, which is also not useful.


Can something be adjusted in the "deeper" settings?

Many thanks in advance for your tips.

Best regards, Georg

Dears,

I'm facing an error message that keeps appearing for a specific website, while it's working on Google Chrome

"We are sorry an exception has occurred in the current page Firefox!"

But it's recommended to use the Firefox browser, I tried the below:

- Restarted the computer - Clear cache - Tried to add the website to allow pop-ups - Open website in non-cached mode - Uninstall and delete all Mozilla folders from the AppData, then tried to install it again - Uninstall and delete all Mozilla folders from the AppData, then tried to install the 32-Bit version

Wasted a whole bunch of time when Firefox decided to install an update (I had previously downloaded) automatically. I did not touch my machine. A dialog came up and before I could read it and choose to cancel, the installation began. Took at least 16 minutes. I had checked "check for updates but let me choose to install", but it didn't give me a chance to decline. According to the web, the suggestion is choose "Never check for updates", but that choice is not there. I don't want ANY kind of auto update or auto install. Please don't suggest I program anything, thanks.

Alternatively if I can change the weekend colors that would work well. They are nearly the same yellow as the CURRENT color.

I give up. Cannot see all images in incoming emails - since updating clean install Win10, and so, everything else. Some emails display some images but not all. Some emails seems to display all. Some only shows placeholder boxes or broken image icons. Can't see the difference why - html links show at online link at bottom of TB when I mouse-over for those which display and those which are placeholder boxes only.

When I open some emails, it briefly flashes images, reverting to placeholder boxes. It means the problem is not with downloading from my ISP. I run Avast - Free version - don't seem to have any settings I can mess with, so I set TB not to allow it to quarantine incoming emails, which did not help anyway. (Yes, I will reset that soon as I can.)

I do not even get the flashed option as I used to get in previous versions of TB of allowing remote content for some individual emails. I have allowed remote content in settings - did not fix the problem.

Tried all the usual suspects in settings. No go. Went into troubleshoot mode and ticked to remove both add-ons and reset defaults. Might have fixed some emails - others remain as they were, displaying some images or none.

I am running TB updated to latest 102.1.2(64bit). I'm also running thin on patience... LOL!

Don't know if this is relevant: Thunderbird refuses to save my ISP (pop3) password - when I tick the box to save password, my password does not work and I have to put it in again without ticking the "save password" box. There are no "saved password" for my account in settings.

I do not import any email etc accounts - I ONLY use PB for one straight ISP pop3 account for email only on my home PC.

Should I save/back up my stuff, delete TB and reload?

I am almost about to stop using Firefox. Why is it so hard to gain access to YouTube? Never have a problem with Microsoft Edge. If a fix cannot be made without jumping through a lot of hoops and steps, I will have to stop using Firefox. Fix this mess. This problem has been around now for some time. Get it fix or accept other users switching to other browsers that seem to have no problem at all getting to and using YouTube. Very Frustrating.

I have just installed Thunderbird 91.11.0 (64-Bit) on Kubuntu 22.04 LTS.

I would like to have all of my message folders have the following columns:

Attachments, Subject, Received, Size

I can make the change easily enough, but they keep reverting to the default columns. This happens whenever I change folders and return. Sometimes I can actually *see* them change. For example, if I set my desired columns for my Inbox, and then change to a different folder and back to Inbox, I'll see my desired columns - and then they'll change back to the defaults a few seconds later.

I would actually like to apply these same settings to all of my folders. To do that, I have used "Apply columns to..." and selected "Folder and its children" and selected the account at the top of the folder list. I have also tried just applying the view to Inbox.

None of this works. It insists on using the default column list, which I do not want. Ever.

I'll note that this is a new install of both Kubuntu and Thunderbird. This machine suffered major file corruption a couple of days ago from a power loss during an upgrade. To recover, I clean installed everything from scratch into a newly formatted disk.

This machine was previously running Ubuntu 20.04 LTS with an unknown version of Thunderbird (since the machine crashed, I lost the version information). That install did not have this problem.

I would appreciate any suggestions to make a permanent change to the column layout.

Thanks, -Wade

Running 64-bit 102.1.2 on Windows 7 (need to maintain Windows 7 as part of my work). When I first upgraded to 102.1.2, the local (synchronized) copies of my mailbox were immediately corrupted. Server copies are fine. I saw, for example, that many key folders had dozens or even hundreds of sub-folders of the same name with a sequence number tacked on (INBOX-0001, INBOX-0002, ... INBOX-1050 for example -- I forget the exact zero padding but it was in the names). I tried a few things then resorted to removing all the local *.msf files for a full rebuild. This is a fairly large set of folders so rebuilds can take a while but this one seemed a lot slower. Then, during the rebuild it would stop and leave some IMAP folders unsynchronized. In some cases this caused filters to fail with "no such folder" type errors. I thought I finally had it fully rebuilt, which involved having to visit each folder, or select sets of folders and compact them. But then, on exit/restart, a bunch of folders were once again out of sync. I have the total messages header set for folders and I'd see big chunks of those empty after restarting -- where I had just painfully got them all sync'ed and showing totals before the restart. The total folder size still shows, but upon visiting the folder it ends up doing a full sync of that folder. Some of these folders have a lot of message so this has become extremely painful. And if visit enough folders it bogs Thunderbird way down running their resync's in parallel (there seem to be a limit to how many though). It can slow Thunderbird way down, to the point of not being able to use it for periods of time ... sometimes the hourglass is also on for a long time (10-20 minutes). The folders are no longer corrupt -- just some subset of them (which seems to move) are continually in a state of resync.

Any ideas appreciated, including any ways to easily resync all folders in a sane way. I have the account set for all to sync but it seems like I either have to visit the ones out of sync or select them as part of a compact operation. Very time consuming and now I'm headed back to the workweek where I need to be able to use this account.

I've checked the physical disk the local folders reside on and it's not reporting any issues (plus I have other things on that disk that are having no issues).
