When trying to install addons from Firefox addons management menu (tab 'about:addons'), they not downloads. and Firefox says 'addon can not be loaded because connection problem'.

When trying open 'https://addons.mozilla.org/ru/firefox/' have 'PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR'.

I am thinking the reason of this errors is blocking requests to 'addons.mozilla.org' by my internet provider (Beeline Kazakhstan). Because when I trying to connet to 'addons.mozilla.org' using VPN or proxy I have no problems described above.

I have no idea why this internet provider or goverment needs to block host 'addons.mozilla.org' (they love to block various website just fo fun). May you help me bypass this problem? May be you know the way how to install VPN addon offline for Mozilla Firefox whithout acces to addons webpage.

Sorry for my English and thank you for reading (:

Hi

Is possible to change names of connected equipment in Firefox account?

If I have open card in my f.e. home PC, and I want to send it to my another computer. OK - I can choose send to .... (I see full name of my another equipments).

BUT

If I want to do this from my smartphone - I don't know witch equipment I want to choose, because I see only this Send this card to "Firefox on equipment ..."

The names in Firefox on Android devices in this menu is to short to identification to which equipment I want to send this card (I have connected a few)

I can't find settings in Firefox account where I can do this.

So I think this is a big hardness to use this a very good idea from my android device

As I have recently migrated my message folders to a new profile, but with my account being setup identical to what it was in the original profile, the From and To/Cc fields of the message header are abbreviated to just the name of sender and recipient(s). In previous versions of Thunderbird I have been accustomed to seeing the full format "Joe Doe <JD@someplace.com>" and without the solid blue start adjacent. Is there a convenient way to revert to the older format? The original profile and the new profile are viewed in TB 78.6.1.

I am using Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit) on Win 10 Pro and the menu font size and toolbar icons are minuscule, even on my 32" monitor.

I found a fix for this same problem in Thunderbird, but I don't see any way to make the menu fonts and toolbar icons bigger in Firefox. This has nothing to do with web sites, just the menu/bookmarks, toolbar icons, etc.

Thank you.

I used to be able to drag an event that was part of a recurring task to a different day or even time. I.e. if I had an event that occurred at 8 AM every Monday I could drag it to 10 AM on any particular Monday. It would work the same way as 'edit only this occurrence'. Now I can drag it just like before and it looks right until I restart Thunderbird and then it ends up at the original time as it is set for the series. If I double click and 'edit only this occurrence' it will persist after a restart. Dragging an event that is not part of a series still works as it should and persists after a restart. Is there some configuration setting or something that controls this or is it a bug with the latest release? I'm using version 78.6.1.

I stopped using Chrome a while ago and I use, ahem, Bing for searches. Sometimes, when I click on a link I get a "404. That’s an error. The requested URL was not found on this server. That’s all we know." while using Firefox. I copy the link and paste it into the browser Edge and the site comes up no problem. Does firefox used a cached version of Google while Edge does not? Is there a way to resolve this?

I decided to stop using Google some time ago so made the full time change to Firefox and a different search engine. A tad bothersome that Google is still there. Not really interested in going to MS Edge...

Currently, I'm using Firefox 82.0.2 on Fedora 31. Recently, it's started opening most, but not all links in a new window instead of the current one. Not on all sites, but most. As a pair of examples, it opens links to articles on gasbuddy.com in a new window but not on Slashdot, and until a few months ago, it only opened a new window if I right-clicked and selected New Window from the context menu. I'd like to get the old behavior back, as this is quite inconvenient.
