I reasonably (i.e. with evidence) suspect that my mid-2010 17" MacBook Pro computer has extremely bad malware (firmware infection or hardware trojan) on it. It may be irrelevant, or it may not be. At some point in the past, I managed to find malware associated with my installation of Firefox through VirusTotal and a free program that is integrated with VirusTotal. I should be able to provide the allegedly infected files if needed.

It takes my version of Firefox up to at most about an hour and a half to "warm up" and become functional after starting. I have an add-in which doesn't fully "load up" during the "non-functionality time." The symptom in Firefox itself is that a new tab will be blank. Once I am able to create a new tab and it shows the shortcuts then I know that the browser is functional. I say functional, but the pages load slower than they probably should and very frequently the application doesn't respond and has the spinning beach ball.

Sometimes I get error messages that there is a problem with the connection. A ping in Terminal doesn't show any issue with my connection as far as the operating system is concerned. Gmail frequently has connectivity issues. The slowness of website loading itself appears to be an issue with the infected operating system. At least I have issues with Safari slow web page loading.

Hi, I have noticed this behavior for a while now and it is becoming bothersome now. It seems to happen ONLY upon initial visit to a site, any site. Once the site loads completely, any links from there loads without the black screen.

Of course, I have searched and tried the known remedies: 1) graphics driver. Chrome, Konqueror and other browsers do not exhibit this behavior. 2) FF add-on's disabled. No permanent difference. 3) Hardware acceleration disabled. No permanent difference.

I'm running 103.0.2 (64-bit) on: Operating System: Kubuntu 22.04 KDE Plasma Version: 5.24.4 KDE Frameworks Version: 5.92.0 Qt Version: 5.15.3 Kernel Version: 5.17.5-051705-generic (64-bit) Graphics Platform: X11 Processors: 8 × Intel® Core™ i7-6700 CPU @ 3.40GHz Memory: 23.4 GiB of RAM Graphics Processor: llvmpipe

This is not a deal breaker but should be addressed to make FF more perfect! Best... Hong Son

Hi dear manager, I know a cyber security team related to military in my country are working on Security holes very badly. In these days there are many trojans and viruses out there. I am using FF latest update all the time & MalwareBytes & Eset both of them licensed latest versions. Just tell me can hackers steal my passwords & cookies and logged in sessions by opening a single web site in these days? Can they install an exe file in my pc through FF in silent mode without my permission? Imagine a news web site has some malicious codes. Can they steal data through this web site by just opening it?

Hi,

Is there absolutely no way I can download an add-on to use emoticons in my emails? I came across one that was supposed to be fine for version 102 but I tried it and it needs a signature? The ones I've looked at are nothing like the ones I had previously which mysteriously disappeared after I uploaded the latest version - which is now 102.1.2.

If you could tell me one way or the other, then I'll stop looking.

Thanks

Hi, I've just read an answer to this question that goes back to 2015.

You'd think it's easy to delete a program that you've just dowloaded but no. Not in the list. I followed the solution above and nothing refers to my version - 102.1.2. I do have the symbol that should be a toggle but it does nothing except create a column space. My "unthread" is ticked.

What now? I just want rid of it!!

Thanks.

I have been using Thunderbird for my Spectrum emails for quite some time. Within the last week it stopped receiving my emails. This was before or after the last updates. Now at update 102.1.2 64bit version. I have uninstalled and reinstalled When setting up my account it did confirm that the server was connected. Thunderbird. I have also checked with my ISP to ensure that all server settings are correct. I have also tried trying settings that worked in the past such as using POP3 instead of IMAP. I also reduced my IMAP from 3 to 1 as advised in the help topics. None of these have worked. If anybody has an idea please share.

Oh boy. I use Thunderbird as my limited company business email account. Have not received any emails since 12th August. I realize that I set up a message filter to delete a certain sender but set it up to delete all emails (senior moment, ugh!). This is a POP3 account with the intention of keeping all received emails and archiving the old ones off at annual intervals. The deleted emails are not in the deleted folder, presumably they are deleted before they even reach the email account. As this is a POP3 account these emails are presumably still on the server, can these emails be recovered?

Hi, I am running Thunderbird version 102.1.2 on Windows 10. I run 3 email accounts through Thunderbird. For a while now when Thunderbird first started up, I randomly would receive imap connections exceeded error. I unselected hardware acceleration and for whatever reason, that problem went away.

Now my problem is it seems to hang downloading new emails. You can see the blue line across the bottom just sit there. It don't display what account is hanging on. If I go up and check get all messages, it then seems to work ok. I tested it a few times once it had already been started for the day by closing and reopening it, seems to work fine. It seems this occurred on a fresh boot up.

One other issue at times, it seems to get laggy in deleting emails but then works ok No issues noted in sending emails.

Hello,

I updated to macos Monterey yesterday and I guess I guess I also my firefox updated to 102.0.1 (64-bit)... Anyway, I was very much used to have a white background in firefox's built-in pdf viewer when viewing pdfs that really have a white background (for example if you download it and check it with Adobe reader, or any reader other than the viewer built-in the browser).

Now the background color is gray, and it's not convenient for me at all. I could not find the magic setting that allow to changing this behaviour... I do not use themes, so I do not mind changing something there if needed.

Could any guru help here please ? That would be much appreciated.

Since the latest Thunderbird update, I have noticed that the first time I try to send an email the sending window stays open indefinitely, until the send process times out. But if I just cancel the email and try again, it almost always works on the 2nd try. Something is fishy here--I've never had any problems with Tbird before. Running Windows 10 on an old HP computer.

I have an issue where AdBlocker Ultimate, Plus or Free and uBlock Origin and Ghostery are causing an undesired effect on YouTube's display of videos on it's Home page. I would like to know where to report issues regarding extensions and add-ons. If any of the above extensions are enabled then the Home page for YouTube is missing the video in either the #1 position or the #4 position in the top row. (See screenshot). I've used these extensions for years on the same system and have made no changes. Suddenly, for about a month the problem has been occurring. I have another identical system with the same extensions and have no issues. I use the following extensions along with the ones mentioned above. New Tab Override and DuckDuckGo and they have no interplay in with the issue I'm having. I've gone through an exhaustive process of disabling each one and trying various combinations of them and determined that the culprits are AdBlocker Ultimate, Plus or Free and uBlock Origin and Ghostery. Ghostery alone removes the video in the #1 position. But, if either of the other four are loaded with or without Ghostery then the video in #4 position is missing. Any help in resolving the issure would be greatly appreciated. Thank You!

My Thunderbird upgraded and my 1 of my 2 emails accounts stopped working due to a change in password security. (GMAIL). I saved my profile and unistalled TB and installed a older version hoping this would work . However after copying and paste my old profile over the new profile it stated "profile data were no longer compatible with the older version and to create a new profile".

I did not want to do this. So I kept my old profile uninstalled again and reinstalled the latest TB back again only to find when i copy and paste my old profile it now is no longer compatable with this version either .

How do i get my profile to work again? (even if it means just the one email account works).

Hi,

I'm running version 103.0.2 on Windows 11. I now can't just click and drag tabs around like I could before. Is there a way to do this?

I also used to click and drag tabs out of the browser too and open a new window, which I quite liked... again, is there any way to do this?

While I was messing around I closed all of my open windows. When I opened Firefox again I only had 3 of my open windows, rather than the 5 or so before. Is there any way to open these again?

Thanks, Naomi

Hello,

as Microsoft 365 will soon disable basic auth, we have switched to OAuth2 but unfortunately, Thunderbird randomly displays an Authentication error and at this point we won't receive any new messages.

Every time I start Thunderbird, emails are fetched correctly, but then after some time the error appears and at this point, Thunderbird doesn't even try it again. I can't even find an option to try again and have to restart Thunderbird at which point everything works again.

This is really problematic for us as it can take a while until we notice the issue and until then we may miss an important email.

We are using shared inboxes which means that we are accessing a mailbox like sharedinbox@business.de using tenant@business.de and the tenants MFA.

Why does OAuth2 work this unreliable?

How can we get Thunderbird to just try again automatically?

Thunderbird 102.1.2 (64 bit)

Best Regards
