Good day! Dear Sirs, How I can stop downloading of the file from the opened page? I have started to download the pdf file from opened page of a site. I have confirmed the download by Mozilla Firefox. The downloading has begun and has reached the 99% of the volume according to the announcement of my phone and the push-notification. I use Android. But after that the volume of downloading remains on the same level of 99% of the file. The push-notification/ announcement of my android phone shows that downloading continues and doesn't finish! What does it mean? What is the problem? And what can I do or should I do in order to stop the process of downloading? Please, help me! Thanks in advance! Kindest regards! Alexander

Hello,I have Windows XP 32 bit with service pack 3 and Firefox 52.9.1 ESR browser. Now that adobe flash player is history I can't play videos online that are not on youtube. I can still watch youtube videos.

Is there a HTML5 video player or something else I can install on this old system that will work or is that not possible? I know it's an old system but it still does the job.

Thanks.

Hi, I have been using Thunderbird for 5 years now, and like it a lot. But I have a problem now.....

My Thunderbird App link suddenly became unlinked. After searching *thunderbird*.exe there is no Thunderbird.exe file on my computer now. I searched this forum with "Reinstall" and the most recent relevant one said all folders and contact lists would update, and I just download the app and follow the steps.

Then when I download and it says I have a new profile. Then the one "What are my Options" is: Do nothing.

Please give the link to the clear instruction, or advise the steps to retrieve my folder structures, contacts, and have the program connect to my yahoo email accounts (same as before). Thanks!

Suggested improvement... It would be very useful to have the forum search engine to be able to refine searches, instead of expand searches: Example: Search "reinstall" get over 100 results. "How to reinstall" gets over 700 results and most not relevant to reinstall. Maybe my thinking is wrong. Thank you.

I downloaded the latest Beta version of Thunderbird the day it was released. I have used Thunderbird as my preferred mail client for two years and have updated it twice with no issues. This latest version does not recognize my existing profile and will not import my contacts, archives or passwords. I have been able to get it to send and receive on my primary e-mail account, but how can I get my old files back?

bold textTHUNDER BIRD Keeps crashing

Transferred the Local Folder Filters

I recently had to restore my iMac and now Thunderbird keeps crashing

In restoring my system I had to change my Apple ID password. But all the other programs except Thunderbird and Evernote appear to work ok.

The Thunderbird on my iiPadPro 12.9 still works but every time I start Thunderbird on my iMac the screen comes up and then crashes.

Originally after restoration my list of Local Files and Filters for my account did not transfer so we went on your site Moving a Thunderbird profile and followed the directions and now the Local accounts (178) are back but all the filters are gone, but they appear to be there for Local Folder but not the ones for my named account.

Hello! I am using firefox on windows10 I am facing problems with my firefox browser, some buttons are not responding where as the same buttons in site work well and good in chromium based ones. This is my first problem

My second problem is that I uninstall firefox completely and install again. I am getting a welcome window saying "Firefox has been installed before. Let's get a new copy". Please help me get an experience as if i am installing firefox for the first ever time on my machine.

Please address them both

Hello,

I successfully installed TB over a year ago and yesterday started the process to update the program to the current version. I get a message "Setup - Your computer must be restarted to complete a previous upgrade of TB. Reboot or restart the PC."

I've tried several times...either restarting or rebooting...and keep getting the same message over and over. I went to the Windows 10 app area and tried to remove TB to start over but get the same message when I try to remove TB. No joy.

What next?

Regards,

Hi everyone. Tghunderbird is upgrading and won't let me open my emails now, it's asking about profiles (new old) I confess to be ignorant about the inner workings, once it is set up I just use it for basic emailing so have never understood all the settings or options. I'm going to reboot my pc in the hope it reverts back, if not I'll see you on the other side.

I've ran apt remove --purge firefox and completely deleted the ~/.mozilla directory, reinstalled and still get a Mozilla Crash Reporter window.

If I try to run firefox from terminal I get: (Running in safe mode (firefox --safe-mode) makes no difference.)

I haven't made any config or extension changes since it stopped working, and not sure what could be causing this. I don't mind starting from scratch, just need Firefox back. :)

I got a bug, or a hack, or a virus that corrupted my FIREFOX so had to uninstall and re-install.

Have got most of it fixed except I can't get the BOOKMARK "BAR" to display [see pic attached].

If I select "Bookmark" on the top bar, it opens the bookmark window but I want it where it has been for over a decade, between HISTORY AND TOOLS.

I downloaded the current rel 86. My first FIREFOX copy was ~2004/2005 ver 1.0.
