I run Parallels on my Macbook 14" and have downloaded both Mac and Windows verison of Firefox. In Windows verison I can close the active TAB I'm currently in by clicking on the X, however Mac version does not allow this. I must select another TAB and then close the orginal one I wanted to close.

The same is true for the refresh button, in Mac the button is not active but in Windows it is.

I'm currently testing my website using FF's RDM, I have HTML 5 video with two sources, one Webm and one MP4 encoded according to the mozilla dev pages' advice on codecs.

The video, when clicking play or the video itself, advances one frame and pauses again under all User Agents bundled into Responsive Design Mode. If I click quickly and repeatedly it will eventually play properly. The thumbnail renders properly and the progress bar indicates that the video has loaded properly.

The video works as intended on Desktop (Windows & Linux), my Pixel 4a (FF & Chrome), my friend's S20FE (One of the UAs in RDM), and StackOverflow doesn't seem to have any input on my code, so the one last thing to check is with people who know more about Responsive Design Mode.

I would really appreciate if the Firefox Password Manager would time-out and ask me again the primary password every x minutes (lets say 10 minutes, better if configurable). I use Firefox in my home PC, I have two kids (11 and 13 years old) and they frequently use my Linux/Firefox session for their school necessities and leisure time. The problem is that often they end using my session and they have access to all my usn/pwd inside de Password Manger (Internet router configuration, Parental Control configuration, ecc.) My kids have their own Linux profiles and Chrome profiles for school but they usually get to use my own PC/web-browser sessions for practical reasons inside my family.

Thank you very much for your support. Hernan M. Vago

I am being plagued by a spammer who spoofs the domain from which the mail shows to be sent. This spammer uses a very long (perhaps 64 characters) series of random letters for the domain, and every message has a different domain thus it's impossible to block the spam by blocking the sender because there are billions of permutations. I get 15 or 20 of these crap messages every day. They come approximately every hour. I have many, many hundreds of blocked addresses in my filter, but it's useless. They just keep coming.

I realize that I may lose a few valid messages, but I want to block any message where the sending domain is more than 50 characters. Is that possible? If not, is there an alternative solution?

 Thanks,
 John

I have multiple email addresses, and I would like to group the inboxes by use (work, leisure, spam,..).

In particular, suppose I have three email addresses and would like a merged view of the first two, but not the third. How can I achieve this? Is there an add-on? (I couldn't find one.)

The best solutions I came up with:

- make a filter that moves all emails from the 1st to the 2nd inbox, and just look at the second inbox. - forward all mail - make a filter that moves all emails in the 3rd inbox to a subfolder, such that it doesn't appear in the unified inbox

All of these have drawbacks.. Specifically, I would like to reply to the emails using the email address they were sent to, which becomes cumbersome if I actually move emails from the 1st to the 2nd inbox. Moving all emails away from the 3rd inbox kinda works, but I don't like it, because it makes things awkward for other reasons. Any help is appreciated!

I prefer to update Firefox manually, so in my Firefox settings, I have it set to: "Check for updates but let you choose to install them".

So I sometimes get a message when I launch Firefox saying "Update available. Download the latest version of Firefox." and I click "Dismiss"

Today, I launched Firefox (v107.0), got this update message, and clicked "Dismiss". However, when I go to About Firefox, it says "Firefox is being updated by another instance".

Why is Firefox ignoring my preference?

I have been using Thunderbird for several years. It has been stable, it remembered my passwords, and the calendar synchronized with my Google calendar without issue.

I recently installed a Windows update, to Windows 10 Home, version 21H1, build 19043.1889. Since the update Thunderbird frequently crashes, typically after around 10 to 30 minutes after starting.

In the hope it might resolve the crashing, I installed Thunderbird 102.2.0. Since then Thunderbird continues to crash frequently, plus I now have had the following issues:

1) Every time I start Thunderbird, Provider for Google Calendar requires me to enter my Google password and authenticate on my phone. Previously Provider just needed the password and authentication at the time of initial set up only.

2) When I click 'Get Messages', Thunderbird asks for the password to my e-mail account. If I check the box for 'Use password manager to remember this password' then 'Get Messages' always fails. If I do not check then 'Get Messages' is successful, but I have to enter the password every time.

3) Similarly, when I send an e-mail Thunderbird asks for the password to my e-mail account. If I check the box for 'Use password manager to remember this password' then sending the message always fails. If I do not check then sending the message is successful, but I have to enter the password every time.

Is it possible to create aliases locally to do this? Another option, perhaps more general, would be to be able to create groups of categories, to be able to give it this use, is it possible to do something like this?

After updating to MacOS Ventura Thunderbird starting slow.

I get this error message:

I have only one profile installed, but when I start Thunderbird using the terminal /Applications/Thunderbird.app/Contents/MacOS/thunderbird-bin -P

it starts very fast but I get an error

UNSUPPORTED (log once): POSSIBLE ISSUE: unit 1 GLD_TEXTURE_INDEX_2D is unloadable and bound to sampler type (Float) - using zero texture because texture unloadable

One more thing is, that I can't see any images and there is no button any more to allow it for each email separately.

I also tried to reinstall Thunderbird, but even then it starts very slow.

What can I do? Any idea?
