I've noticed for about 2 weeks now, my google street view is not working like it used to. It some times will not respond and when it does respond it is very slow. I didn't used to have this problem, so maybe a new Firefox update or some other issue is causing then problem? How can I view my browser settings to see if some thing there is causing the problem? Hopefully, someone can help and cure the problem. Thanks,

Firefox (Android) still seems to have all the bookmarks listed under "Desktop Bookmarks". Am entirely lost as to why there is no manual export/backup of bookmarks. Please can someone help me retrieve my "Desktop Bookmarks" folder from my Android install?

Over the last week or so I've been through two (Desktop) Firefox "updates", first good, now LOST! For some reason my 64 bit Win10 version has lost Bookmarks menu toolbar AND ALL (personal) bookmarks.

  • Tried many times to manually sync Android version with no success.
  • checked sessionstore-backups
  • Checked for duplicate profiles, found one (made it default in new window, still no bookmarks)
  • Attempted to uninstall & re-install
  • Even did Windows restore roll back, but zero help

With regards, Dave

I am running Thunderbird 78.6.0 and am finding that old messages are opening in tabs along the top of the screen, just above where it says Get Messages, Write, Chat, address book etc They are not there when I open the program, but appear over the course of the day. I do not use tabs at all, I read all my messages in the message pane, yet messages that I haven't read for months will appear as tabs. Sometimes it will be one message opened several times, along with other messages . I do not actually SEE any tabs opening, I just suddenly realise that there are many there. I just closed down 12 tabs, the oldest message was from over 12 months ago. My mail is IMAP, I do not have any add-ons. This is SO frustrating. Do you have any answer please? Win

There is archived topic: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1201650#answer-1069428

Where people share that the search just does not work properly in ThunderBird. I myself after I met the same issue in my TB (search just did not work for me since the very first time I started using TB) - tolerated it for one year, I just was just going to WEB gmail interface to perform search, and then it was enough. I have tried thebat, claws and foxmail - all of them have their flaws, but the foxmail did the best EVERY sense EXCEPT ONE - somehow it makes my very old messages to become UNREAD it is annoying, but search works greatly in foxmail.... All in have decided to go back to thunderbird and try to resolve issue with search, I have removed the global-messages-db.sqlite many times. I did not help me... It is sad. And the old thread was archived like nothing happened. :) It is funny... May be issue should be RESOLVED instead of IGNORED?

In Firefox for Mac, when in fullscreen mode, moving the mouse curser to the top of the screen to show the menu bar covers the open tabs, address bar etc. I'm not sure if this is a feature or a bug - in other browsers the tabs move down so that you can still click on them, which I much prefer.

Is there a way to have Firefox move the address bar etc out of the way when showing the menu bar in full screen?

I've attached a couple of screenshots to show the behaviour in Firefox compared to Brave browser (and I guess Chrome).

Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere, I saw a few similar posts but nothing with this exact issue.

Thanks!

I have bought a lap top and need to copy my address book from my PC onto it. (full of hundreds of addresses). In the Thunderbird folder on my PC I have found "abook.mab.bak" file. But, when trying to import this in thunderbird, it is asking for a .csv or other file. the option to select a .bak file is not there. I have tried copy / paste the file directly into the profiles folder but they are not there when I want to write an e-mail. Can anyone help please?

I am part of a charity organisation which is using Google Drive to store records in the "cloud" and a means of multiple members accessing those files. A form has been created which needs a date to be entered. The form was created by another person with a drop down calendar or by entering the date using dd/mm/yyyy. When I open the form through Google Drive on my computer using Firefox (my browser of choice)the drop down calendar does not operate and the date is formatted MM/DD/YYYY. Through "Options" on the home page the language is set to English (Great Britain) and the date is said to be taken from my Windows settings. My Windows settings for the date formatting are correct at dd/mm/yyyy. If I change browsers to Chrome the form is accessible with its correct formatting. Your assistance would be appreciated

Greetings, I am trying to fill out a PDF form using Firefox's built in PDF viewer and form editor. I'm running Linux (Ubuntu) with Firefox 84. I am able to successfully view and "Open" the PDF within the browser, and even edit the text properly. However, upon saving or printing, the text gets rendered with a massive font size nullifying the ability to edit in browser. I've been trying to find some online resources without success, and can't seem to find others reporting a similar case.

I've disabled all extensions and restarted Firefox, but did not notice any change in behavior. Any tips for debugging? Attached are two pics of the PDF form while editing, and then the rendered PDF after saving.

Nothing happens when I try to COPY or MOVE emails from an Account to a Local Folder.

EDIT: Bigger issue is that I need to delete this account but I don't want to lose the hundreds of emails.

I need to delete all my Protonmail accounts before i can fix issues with the Protonmail Bridge app which handles the encryption. I need to do a clean install of the bridge to see if I can make it start working again.

Forwarding them all to somewhere would be a poor solution because the headers would be prepended with "FWD" information, it would preclude Replying in an orderly manner, and Searching.

EDIT: maybe a workaround would be to attempt to use a Filter to copy EVERYTHING and run it once. Not sure how to set up the Filter to do that, does it accept * wildcards?

I'm running Windows 10 on a Surface Pro like device (it's a Vaio Canvas). I have a bluetooth keyboard that is always connected, but I often just use it as a tablet. I've tried disconnecting the physical keyboard but I still get the same behaviour.

Using touchscreen, I select a text box (or URL bar/search box etc), normally the On-screen Keybard (OSK) comes up and lets me type. Right now, with FF it pops up and then promptly disappears.

This makes FF completely unusable using touchscreen/tablet mode. I have switched to using chrome on this device - I've tested other browsers too and none exhibit this behaviour. Could it be my settings?

Good evening. I have run the Ookla speed test through Edge and my download is 212.94 Mbps and my upload is 11.76 Mbps and uses the Spectrum Syracuse Server. Running Spectrum speed test on Edge registers Spectrum Syracuse as the optimum server and download is 236.2 and upload 11.6. Both are using my Spectrum server in Syracuse, NY.

When I run Ookla through Firefox I got 227.17 down and 11.63 up. Spectrum's speed test through Firerefox's Syracuse server 231.8 up and 11.5 down.

However for a while earler this evening when I ran both programs on both browsers and both through Syracuse's servers I was getting downs of 0.0 to 0.7. I reset the modem and router and still had low speeds but shortly after I got the readings I wrote in the first two paragraphs.

What would be the reason for this? Anything particular with Firefox? Something I should look out for in the future? Partially a curiosity while the other part being proactive.

Thanks for anybody who can take time to answer.

Not sure this time.......you guys have helped me before, (thanks heaps...BTW) luckily I did my Banking before it crashed! groan.....my guy has no idea...('cos he's dyslexic) ... years ago he did a course, then left it up to me! It's to do with the fact that I didn't understand how to create/data into emails & such in the first place properly...now it's a big mess, plus for the life of me I couldn't remember how to fix up my emails, plus I had that problem of the long string of data that I have 'nursed' & that has now totally disappeared! Not very easy to explain, sorry! I had about 5 years worth, Hmmmmm... But I can't explain where my emails have gone! I do still have a few listed 'bookmarks' in alphabetical order but I don't know how to restore them, (she said hopefully)! I still cannot find out where the emails 'live'.....they seem to have located themselves into a new format! (Oh yeah, about 9 months ago I figured out how to insert a 'NEW FOLDER' ..lol... that really helped.)

Привет всем.

прописываю настройки Base DN + порт 389+имя пользователя + фильтр (mail=*), поддерево(у коллеги попробовали у него всё работает). иду в адресную, пишу @, ни чего. ну думаю дай поменяю настройки (не удалил со строки поиска @).

иду в настройку адресной книги, в автономно нажимаю синхронизировать - репликация выполнена, при этом в адресной книге - не закрытой которая с @ открыта, контакты появляются. ну думаю, вроде как можно смириться с костылём - синхронизировать раз в полгода не напряжно - если экспортировать этот список. выделяю все из списка, экспорт в csv, импорт - он создаёт по имени файла книгу, но ругается что книга пустая - 0 контактов импортированных.

я пробовал и 68.хх и 17.хх

Windows 10 Pro + thunderbird 78.x.x


translate: Hello everybody.

I prescribe the Base DN settings + port 389 + username + filter (mail = *), subtree (a colleague tried everything for him). I go to the address, I write @, or anything. Well, I think, let me change the settings (did not delete it from the search bar @).

I go to the address book settings, in offline mode I press synchronize - the replication is complete, and a contact appears in the address book. Well, I think, it seems like you can put up with a crutch - synchronizing every six months is not stressful - if you export this list. I select everything from the list, export to CSV, import - it creates a book by the file name, but it swears that the book is empty - 0 imported contacts.

i tried both 68.xx and 17.xx

Windows 10 Pro + thunderbird 78.x.x
