For the last couple of months I've been having an issue with Firefox freezing when I bring up a news article on Yahoo. It only happens when there is a video attached to the article, the video and the text of the article won't load. After a few minutes there is a message saying "This page is slowing down Firefox. To speed up your browser, stop this page". All of the Yahoo news articles work fine when I bring them up in Chrome. How can this be fixed??

I open several emails. I use Ctrl-1 and Ctrl-9 to go back and forth.

I deleted C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\9azxazfvuzfa.default-release\session.json as I couldn't remove the last session when I closed TB.

Now I sometimes get blank tabs along with blank emails.

Delete the file again? Did I mess myself up somehow?

Thanks.

I recently updated my TB to 78.13.0 (64-bit) on Windows. Previously working filters to forward certain emails now cause an error - "The message cannot be put in the (IMAP) sent folder - store in local sent folder instead?" "Retrying" fails, "OK" works as expected. I'll capture this message box as soon as I can.

So it's not really a huge deal - the message is sent, but not stored correctly. This only happens on startup and as best I can tell only while the IMAP account is doing it's initial sync. If I run the filter manually after a short period of time (maybe a minute later) all is well. The messages range in size from ~200k to ~1.5M depending on attachments.

I've put all (3) of the forwarding rules at the bottom of the filter list trying to add some tiny delay, but that doesn't help. Is there a way to delay a filter from running? It seems it's all or nothing, automatic or manual. The "periodically" setting is not required I only get these message once a day, but need to share them right away when I do. Right away does not mean like milliseconds - just quickly - and keeping them in the IMAP folder is better, otherwise I have to remember to move them there from local folders.

Again, this is a condition that started with the update. Thanks for your consideration, time, and talent. Regards, --Sam

Regardless of what version and CPU architecture of Thunderbird is installed, the auto updater keeps telling me that it cannot update Thunderbird and suggests that I visit Thunderbird's website to download the latest version.

Searches related to this problem all either involve Avast antivirus, which I am not using (I use F-Secure TOTAL) or very obsolete versions. To the best of my knowledge, I do not have any specific website blocked in my network, apart from Facebook, and despite searching, I cannot find out any debug options to determine the cause of the update failure.

I have tried uninstalling the product and reinstalling it, also changing between 32-bit and 64-bit versions. Currently running 78.9.1 64-bit under Windows in the Release channel.

I'm running 78.13.0 (32-bit) and am on the release update channel.

After the most recent update message filters have stopped running automatically. Strange thing is if I go Tools>Run Filters on Folders, then the messages are routed to their respective folders. Curious thing is, this is one of five Inboxes and only one is experiencing this. I'm bumfuddled.

What have I tried? Restarting. Restarting in Safe Mode. Rebooting.

Another thing, if I go to Tools>Message Filters and find/highlight the particular filter, then click Run Filter, nothing happens - but - if I click on Edit the filter, do absolutely nothing but close it, then click Run Filter again, it works.

But the main thing that has me perplexed is from the inbox, manually selecting Tools>Run Filters works. It's like the filters are never being launched automatically when messages arrive. Thoughts?

I was quite unhappy with the new Firefox Proton design, so I made a CSS file and copied the following code from a website. However, I don't know what to do to (1) slightly reduce the tab height, (2) get back tab borders for inactive tabs and (3) remove the small gaps between tabs. How exactly do I have to change the following code to do so (ideally, for convenience, please just complete the code accordingly)? Thanks in advance for any support!

Been using TB for donkey's years, no problems. Just recently, I get a pop-up message in the TB window saying it can't download the latest version, and giving me a link to download it manually.

Putting aside the question of why it can't download automatically (any ideas anyone?), why does it even do this when I'm on the latest version? I can see the version in Help -> About, and this is the same version as the latest downloader.

Anyone any ideas? I get this pop-up several times a day, and it's annoying. Thanks

When I search Google from the address / search bar in Firefox Android, the progress bar goes to about 30% and stops for a long time before loading the page.

Worse, every page I click in the search results behaves the same way.

Same behavior just opening www.google.com.

Other sites load fine, just anything that starts with a Google URL is severely hobbled.

Same on mobile and Wi-Fi. Desktop PC on same Wi-Fi network is not affected.

I Am on desktop:

i5 9600KF (high performance mode) 16GB 3200mhz ram NVME... Windows 10 Pro x64 Firefox last stable

When I open Firefox tabs aren't loaded all at the same time, but they are suspended. So after that: when I switch between 6 tabs quickly - they start to open at the same time. And CPU usage skyrockets to 100% LOL! Given I Am on high end PC - this is joke! I was using chrome and had hundreds of tabs and Chrome doesn't even suspend them by default. They open all at the same time I think!

So there is something wrong! I tried troubleshooting mode and it was the same problem!

Thanks for help!
