Hello. Is there a possibility to swap the destinations of mouse shortcuts? I am asking this because of i want all links open with new tabs. I have read the article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1205311, the extension that the expert recommends does not work as expected, but middle click works perfect everywhere. I am sorry if I doubled the known question, but i failed to find anything clear. Thank you.

So, I've been using the Picture-in-Picture feature of Firefox a lot - when it works well, it's a really useful feature, especially if, like me, you use a second screen to play the video on, but don't like the overlay constantly popping up over the video. And, when the video is in a modern, widescreen aspect ratio, it usually works.

The problem is that when I try to watch, in fullscreen, a video that's in a 4:3 ratio, as many are on Netflix, Amazon and the like, the Picture-in-Picture window will often, presumably registering the black space on either side, zoom right into the video, cutting off a massive portion of the frame and filling the screen completely. Sometimes it doesn't do that at all, sometime it can be fixed by restarting the video and fiddling with the timings and sometimes there's just seemingly nothing I can do and it just will not stop doing it, no matter how much I reload or what I do!

Please tell me how I can get the damn thing to just keep the video in place and stop it deciding "Hey! You don't need to see all of the video, do you?! No, of course you don't!"

While trying to fix Firefox's massive memory leaks, I went to Help/Troubleshooting/Add-Ons and found these, which are NOT in the usual Manage Add-ons page:

Amazon.com extension Bing extension

ClearURLs extension <-- Oops! I actually installed this, to try to trim URLs of all the tracking crap when I paste one into a Facebook comment.

DuckDuckGo extension eBay extension Wikipedia (en) extension

All of the other extensions listed are ones I installed and wish to keep. EVERY time I install Firefox, I go to the One-Click Search Engines list and remove all but Google.

I don't know how these wormed their way in, but they don't seem to add any functionality for me.

I'm running Thunderbird v. 78.5.1 on a Windows 10 Pro workstation. Yesterday I added a new email account to a long-established Thunderbird installation with two other active email accounts. After I set up the new IMAP email account, I sent a test email to myself. I also tested the smtp setup by sending a test email to the new account. The emails were both sent and received successfully.

Today, however, Thunderbird can no longer access the saved passwords for any of the three email accounts. I've re-entered them numerous times. When I attempt to send an email, I get a failure message that says "Could not get password for smtp.[mydomain]."

When I go to Tools --> Options --> Privacy & Security --> and clicked on Saved Passwords, the "Saved Logins" box is empty. I've never used a master password.

Please advise what I should do now. I can't access any new messages for these three email accounts.

Thank you.

Issue: the bookmark toolbar arrow (the one that shows bookmarks that don't fit on the toolbar) is gone from my browser, and the toolbar itself seems truncated (only like 7/8 of the toolbar is filled).

I didn't change any settings or installed any add-ons that could have to do with this. It just disappeared one day, I didn't even notice it at first.

What I tried:

  • I launched Firefox in safe mode, didn't fix it
  • I removed my userChrome.css file, didn't fix it
  • when I cut the bookmarks and paste them into the toolbar, the arrow shows, but when I relaunch the browser it is gone again

See photo for what it looks like (ignore the anonymous favicons, I changed them temporarily with userChrome to preserve privacy, but without userChrome the issue still stands).

Anyone has an idea what happened and how to fix this? Thanks.

When I go to one site, Firefox is now asking me microphone permission on every page on that site during the same session.

This did not happen until two days ago. It used to be when I granted permission for my microphone to be used on that site, it applied to every page on it throughout the session, as long as I did not close out, sign out or close the window. Now, every time I go to speak, when on a new page, it asks for permission. Since this is a language learning site, this has become a real pain.

There is no "remember this setting" dialog either when I first give permission to use the microphone. It is asking for permission for the general site, so it's not asking for each page. When I check the permissions box after moving to the next page, no permissions are granted.

Nothing that I can tell has changed. It's not doing this with other browsers, which is concerning.

I checked my settings site and nothing has changed. I also did Firefox refresh and that did not help. Signed off and signed in again, on both the laptop and website -- all did not change this.

I cannot receive or send emails. I understand the recent security update to TLS 1.2 does not recognize my provider Atmosera. They updated their security protocol a few months ago but Thunderbird is not recognizing them. They said they were working with Thunderbird but had no idea when the issue will be resolved. I did the temporary work around with Config Editor but that no longer works either. I can use webmail but I don't care for it. Help!?

78.5.1 W7

I've recently started using TBird on W7 after long using it & Eudora on OSX. I do NOT store passwords in the Password Manager; preferring to enter them when I restart.

But on one of the machines, I am harangued to reenter the passwords every few minutes. It also seems to be the case whenever I switch to a different folder on an account. (No, I've not been closing all the windows; I know W7 then stops TBird. I really miss my OSX Dock, but...)

I've not found a setting about this, and searching this forum has many entries about password manager but nothing I found about this.

Suggestions?
