I browsed to a few websites on my Oculus Quest 1 where I'd like to use keyboard shortcuts using a Bluetooth keyboard. Unfortunately, the keys do not seem to register in FFR. The keys only seem to work when I am in URL/Search, not when I am just browsing the site. Keyboard shortcuts do work in the Oculus Browser. Can you provide some advice?

Thanks, Dave

I'm running version 87.0.0-rc.1 on my phone (Galaxy J7, android version 9). It has 2GB of memory and 16 GB of storage. I'm running AdGuard adblocker add-on, but same issues without that add-on.

I find that Firefox crashes moderately often when showing videos. I ran this one in full-screen mode, and it crashed before it cycled through 10 times.

https://www.google.com/url?q=https://twitter.com/LilySimpson1312/status/1376500968141979653&sa=D&source=hangouts&ust=1618277028064000&usg=AFQjCNFcfUYRMQ4H67yZQM5zHkrXAu_FXw

Also, I find it highly frustrating that when I tap my Android home button while on a web page, and then go immediately back to Firefox, the web page I was viewing does a full refresh, which often requires me to log in again (private viewing). Example web page that refreshes is:

https://getpocket.com/explore?src=ff_android&cdn=0

It seems to me that these both may be related to internal Firefox memory management issues. I have an old phone running Android 7 that has 2.5GB of memory, and it does not seem to have these issues, and it has far fewer other apps running on it.

Is Thunderbird still supported by Mozilla? Been with MS Outlook for Mac & Windows for 30 years & IT'S TIME to move on. MS & Apple have always been an awkward marriage where IMAP accounts from a 3rd party (Earthlink) are the unwanted step-children. I've adored Firefox since it was Netscape. Currently enduring Big Sur. Any hope here?

i received the below Error message when I try to send an Email.

Is the error caused by with my Thunderbird Ver 78.9.1 or my Internet Service Provider. The Error appeared April 10th after I update to version 78.9.1. I'm using Win 10 with all update installed.

My email address may have been in the recently hacked Facebook data.

"An error occurred while sending mail: The mail server sent an incorrect greeting: ob2-410.midco.net cmsmtp VkUYlKPKGv3eU 184.83.77.45 listed on Spamhaus XBL. Please see http://www.spamhaus.org/xbl for more information. ESMTP server not available"

Hi! Glad someone is here to help!

Last week I was signed out of my Hotmail account. Which is now technically Outlook, but I still have a Hotmail email address. I did not sign out. Just came home to discover that I was signed out. I found the main Outlook sign up page, which also had "sign in" on it, which I clicked.

The next thing that showed up was a mostly blank page with the Microsoft squares, my email address, and password filled in in the upper left corner of the page. Underneath it said "next" which I clicked, and nothing happened. I tried to chat with Microsoft about it, and in the end I downloaded Chrome, which instantly let me into my account. I truly don't want to use Chrome. But so far my ability to access my account via Firefox has not been successful. I would be so happy if anyone could help me understand what is gong on, and how to fix it. Thank for reading this!!!!!! ps I have Linux as my operating system. I had someone who knows Linux well come to help me, but he couldn't figure it out either.

I have been using Messenger/Thunderbird for the last 25 years, and have (had) a pretty significant set of inbox folders. Because of the size of these (and of course the need to move them every few years to a new PC), they were on a separate drive, and have been continuously updated as new versions of Windows and Thunderbird are installed. They appeared as a series of SBD folders in a folder called "Mail". This time I only needed to reinstall Windows on an existing PC, so I was able to backup the profile in the AppData folder and only needed to reinstall Thunderbird and have it point to the "Mail" folder. Unfortunately, despite the Thunderbird installation process continually saying "Upgrading" during the process, as soon as I pointed Thunderbird to "Mail", it just deleted the last 25 years of mail. Not sent to recycle bin but deleted outright. The client briefly showed all my inbox folders in a column on the left as it always has, then that listing collapsed to only Inbox, Drafts, Sent, Spam & Trash. All the SBD folders are gone. Is there a different sequence which would have saved my mail folders - perhaps pointing to a different folder and then copying all the SBDs into that? In the past, I have just updated the "Local Directory" location in the Server Settings, but that has not worked in this case. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

After returning from my wisdom teeth removal, I accidentally told firefox to forget the last 5 minutes of history, and now all of my tabs (including a few very important signup pages) have disappeared. I understand that this option says that the action "cannot be undone," but is there any way for me to reopen or recover those closed windows? I am panicking a bit right now.

Thank you so much.

I can't remember when it started, but one day tabs on my Firefox browser suddenly started having visual issues where textures or pictures would show up as a vibrant green (more recently its begun highlighting some yellow as well). I've had similar problem in the past with videos instead, but I fixed that by updating my graphics card. This problem also affects text as well. Sometimes letters will be invisible, glitched beyond comprehension, or purple. I've tried turning off hardware acceleration, resetting Firefox to default, and completely uninstalling and reinstalling, but none of these have fixed it. I'll attach some images below. (this problem is specific to Firefox, Microsoft Edge works fine)

The strict protection mode in Firefox has been really great for me so far. My understanding is that it creates a separate "cookie jar" for each website. Knowing this, I was wondering if Facebook container is still needed to stop Facebook tracking. I never visit the Facebook website and I don't have a Facebook account. I also use Ublock and Privacy badger, if that makes a difference.
