In previous versions I had to do this to go to a bookmarked site without ending up with more open tabs:

1) Click on the address bar 2) Click on the desired bookmark

After the latest update I have to: 1) Click on the square with the number of open tabs 2) Click on X to close the present tab 3) Swipe down the tab list 4) Click on the three dots 5) Click on 'Bookmarks' 6) Click on the desired bookmark


The release notes says "... dramatically redesigned to be faster, easy to use..."!?

Hello, I've noticed that in the very latest versions CTRL+F5 is much less efficient.

I'm using Developer Edition, 80.0b5. When I press CTRL+F5 websites very often don't reload css.

I can check this by opening the source code and opening the css file, it still shows the old version. If I press CTRL+F5 directly inside the css file, then it updates, but still the page itself won't load the updated version right away.

If I use a private window, I see all updates immediately.

Sometimes after hitting CTRL+F5 many times it will finally update.

This never happened before, is this a bug, does anybody else experience this, is there a fix?

Thanks.

Greetings everyone,

Sorry to be creating a thread about this, but it's a serious question I need help with.

I was just about to install Firefox for my old Android phone. However, before installing Firefox it warns me that it requires access to a bunch of my personal data... :(

Why is this the case?

I currently use Google Chrome on this Android phone.

I'd really appreciate any advice.

Hi,

I have had a really strange problem since working from home where i get broken calls with my softphone. To start with i put it down to my ISP/Router, but after some digging i noticed i am getting 400ms ping responses to my router at certain times of the day. All other devices on my network get <2ms ping responses. Reboot my surfacebook and pings go back to <5ms. After doing some testing i realised that it was Firefox causing the issues, soon as i close firefox, pings drop back to <2ms. Open firefox and work work on it for an hour or two and they creep back up to 400ms, close it and they drop. It's a test i have run multiple times as i didn't believe a browser would do this. Because i work in IT and i haven't reloaded my laptop for at least a year i thought i'd reload a fresh build of Windows...with just drivers and firefox....same problem. I have also run a stress test on the CPU / Memory to see if that had the same results, it doesn't.

My Firefox for Android updated yesterday.

When I click in address bar, I get some kind of not-exactly-helpful 'search with' screen. How do I make it open the home screen(or something actually useful - showing websites and not only search engines), which is shown when you open a new tab?

& is there a way to customize how Firefox looks? I very much did prefer the old design with a new tab button showing pretty much where tab icon was when clicked. New design has new tab button at the other end (!) of the screen. Not exactly comfortable.

I love T-bird and would willingly pay for it (I run my own business and no other system can compete) but I have too many emails and they slow down my laptop. Is there anyway of keeping some of my folders or dated messages in the cloud and only downloading the folders I choose or dates I choose?

Secondly, my desktop allows me to select a message, read the preview pane and move on without marking it as read but when I've more recently downloaded T-bird onto my laptop it automatically marks it as read.

Please help! Sophie

I also save emails to what I thought was a safe subfolder that I created in the imap listing in TB on my PC. However, I was just reading that this is not safe. One should build a sub-folder in Local folders. Can someone please explain Local folders and how to make sure that emails/folders I safe when I store them. EX: When I or Outlook, delete emails and folders from Outlook acct., it does not affect my PC TB emails. This is greatly appreciated. God Bless

I switched from Safari to Firefox (57.0.4) on my iMac (El Capitan) and noticed that I cannot add an event to my Google Calendar. Before, I was able to do so by clicking on a date.

My school recently migrated from Gmail to Office365 email hosting. My access to email through Thunderbird was bricked and I'm trying to get it up and running with the new servers. The school doesn't officially support Thunderbird so there will no be help from that end, but I'm hoping it's possible. The tricky part is the OAuth2 authentication.

The school provided these instructions for setting up Evolution mail client. I was able to get Evolution working successfully by following those steps. The question now is how to do the same in Thunderbird.

I tried following along with these instructions for connecting to an OAuth2 server, substituting the SMTP and IMAP settings given in the Office365 browser client. But trying to download my mail gives the error "The IMAP server outlook.office365.com does not support the selected authentication method. Please change the 'Authentication method' in the 'Account Settings | Server settings'

My guess is that Evolution worked because it let me specify

  1. Host URL
  2. Tenant
  3. Application ID

as shown in the picture.

Is there a way to do the same in Thunderbird?
