The symptom is it will play the video then the screen goes blank after about 1 hour and there is a cursor moving from left to right continuously at the top. I have cleared cookies through preferences and through web developer with no effect. I believe the cookies remain in effect because only when I close the FF browser and reopen does it recover. I have "delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed"

When I use another browser there is no problems. Is this a cookie problem why does play back recover when FF is closed and reopened?

Hi, I am using Thunderbird 78.8.0 including the calendar. Since a couple of months (download 78.0.0 version?), I can not drag & drop an .ics file anymore, which is attached to an email message, to the "daily schedule" view at the right side of the screen, in order to import the data into the calendar. While I am doing this, the screen "new date" is opening, without any content. Before, this way was easily working.

Instead of I have to download the file, first, and then import the file to the calendar. This way is less convenient.

Any help will be highly appreciated.

Thank you very much!

I installed Thunderbird in order to archive my gmail emails. I went into each folder, pressed Ctrl+A and saved all the contents. However, some folders had identical emails, so the app asked me if I want to replace/cancel, blah blah. I ended up having to press Enter for about 2000 times very quickly until it got though all of the identical emails because there's no "apply to all" box. Because of this, when the emails finally ran out, my last Enter was interpreted by Thunderbird to mean I want to open all the emails I had selected. That is 6900+ emails. It opened them for half an hour and then showed a pop-up window, which looks like just an empty white field similar to a search field, with a red X-button on the right. Once I clicked the button, the pop-up window became invisible except for a sliver of 1-2 pixels at the bottom, but it completely blocks interaction with the app. I can't click on any controls or even minimize the window. I can't close it from the taskbar. I can only kill the process in the Task Manager, but when I reopen the app, it shows that thin strip of the popup window again. Is there any way I can get it to work again without reinstalling?

Hi all!

So, in my personal opinion, the Firefox Multi-Account Containers extension is of course much better than sliced bread, and in fact, among the very best concepts ever implemented by sw developers. So good, that it's the reason why still use Firefox. I would never use Chrome, and I know for sure that all those who use it have zero idea just how much, and in what malicious ways, Google has built in settings that theoretically allow to keep your browsing r-e-l-a-t-i-v-e-l-y private (just so that Google can always claim "users CAN keep their browsing details = personal details private"). But the default in Chrome is always sniffin'. And more sniffin'. And more sniffin'. Think: That's Google's ENTIRE business purpose. And particularly for all products they make "free". Just think of gmail. LOL

So, now everyone believes my enthusiasm for Firefox and its extension Firefox Multi-Account Containers, right?

That allows me to post a suggestion for further improvement. And I DDG'ed much, where to give extension feedback, but sadly every feedback avenue is closed. You know. So, better here than nowhere:

IMPROVEMENT SUGGESTION FOR Firefox Multi-Account Containers

======================================

Current behavior: It auto-recognizes in which container to open a URL by looking at the domain part, only.

Current behavior also: It "forgets" the container entirely, when you reopen firefox with prior tabs, and you had consciously opened a particular page in a different container than the associated one.


Desired modification: A checkmark to toggle per container, if we really want container recognition by domain part only, or by a little more than that. See explanation below.

Desired behavior also: Firefox should reopen the browser with prior tabs LIKE THEY WERE, ie if a tab purposefully was in a different container before closing firefox, then obviously upon reopening firefox after bootup it should still be in that different container, and not be now totally UNassociated, aka in no container, like it currently is. - This point I find obvious, it requires no explanation.

The first modification would allow instances like these: - I have multiple, legit, email accounts, and open them in Roundcube, part of Cpanel of my webhosts. - Work email addresses open in "Work" container, Private email addresses in "Private" container, and so forth. - ALL Roundcube tabs (or whatever you might use) login at https://domain.com:2096/ but obviously with different usernames and pw's. - But currently Firefox cannot differentiate that, because it only looks at the domain part, domain.com

How about a checkmark allowing users to select one way or the other for a container? - unchecked: like now - checked: Firefox will differentiate the entire domain up to the first / aka, it will be able to differentiate subdomains, :2096 's (ports?), and similar stuff, because that's all BEFORE the first /

Could this suggestion please be made viral :) such that the extension developer(s) become aware of it?

I'm archiving messages in folders with the year as a name, in subfolders of Local Folders - Archives.

In recent years I created just a new folder for the emails of that year. But last year something happened with the 2020 folder. It became a special folder. That means it is not in the right place in the list of folders, it has a different folder icon, and I can't use the 'find duplicate messages' functionality. I don't know why 2021 is a normal folder.

How can I make the 2020 folder a normal folder again, with the icon that is used for the rest?

Is there a way to stop Firefox from suggesting/autocompleting the root URL of pages I've bookmarked? For example, say I've bookmarked https://www.mysite.com/pageone and named it "My Site - Page 1". If I start typing "my" in the URL bar, the very first suggestion is https://www.mysite.com, instead of my bookmark.

NOTE: I have disabled ALL other suggestions other than bookmarks, including common/popular sites (i.e. typing "goo" will not autocomplete with google, because I have not bookmarked any google sites)

I didn't bookmark the root URL, so I don't want it to be suggested. Any way to disable this behavior?

Thanks!
