I just started having an issue while watching Live Streams on Youtube with FireFox. I'll load the live stream and it will run for about a minute then it will switch to the streamers previous recorded stream. I opened Youtube on my iPad and on Edge browser and the Live stream keeps playing the live stream but on FireFox it only lets it run for about a minute before flipping the playback to the previous recorded video of that streamer. I tried clearing my cache for Youtube and I have no extensions running. I have Youtube Premium and run no adblockers. I have also tried safe mode but the problem persists.

Any idea what could be happening?

Opening Firefox on Debian 12 stable forces the home directory to remount as read-only

I woke up this morning to my home directory having been remounted as read-only (it has its own dedicated hard drive at /dev/sdd1). I ran e2fsck and things looked good, so I restarted and things were fine again.

However, whenever I open Firefox, it hangs for about 1 full minute before it goes haywire and renders the entire system essentially unusable since being able to access my home directory is vital. The following is visible in dmesg:

[ 2710.362946] Aborting journal on device sdd1-8.

All other programs that I use daily do not cause this issue. No clue what to do here. LibreWolf works fine - that's what I'm using now that Firefox breaks everything and basically forces me to restart if I want to use my computer normally.

When I try to play a video on Firefox desktop, it takes it a long time to load. Once it has loaded, whenever I pause it for more than a few seconds, or if I try to skip around the video (either by clicking around in the loaded section of the progress bar or using +/- seconds buttons), the video begins buffering again before the video resumes. This makes it extremely difficult and frustrating to watch anything that requires me to pause, rewind, or fast forward. I've noticed this issue affect multiple video viewing sites, such as YouTube, Vimeo, and Netflix. My roommate also uses Firefox, but doesn't have this issue, so I know it's not a problem with my internet. I thought it might be a problem with my computer, but I tried to replicate the issue in Chrome and everything worked fine there. The issue has persisted almost a week. I have:

  • Rebooted my computer several times
  • Deleted my history/cache
  • Disabled my extensions
  • Turned off Java scripts in firefox (this disabled my ability to load sites like YouTube completely, so I turned it back on)
  • Updated my computer
  • Updated my graphics drivers
  • Refreshed firefox
  • Uninstalled and reinstalled firefox (and rebooted my computer)
  • Uninstalled and reinstalled firefox AND deleted all the data it stored on my computer (and rebooted my computer)

I am currently using version 123.0.1 of Firefox. My OS is Windows 10 22H2.

Firefox 115.12esr slow to startup takes up to 10 second to load the first time now Firefox was fine in version 112.esr. to bad Firefox forces updates, even when the update make Firefox worse. https://snipboard.io/QF0ERT.jpg of course it works faster without extensions, that does not mean anything. I would reinstall the older version but Mozilla fixed so we cannot. I do not have time to reinstall all the extension so I am left with a useless Firefox. To bad Firefox does not allow reinstall of extension automatically, a reset of Firefox would also make Firefox useless; I am at a loss to how to continue to support Mozilla and not switch to another browser?

Starting 3 days ago: Cannot SEND email - receiving works fine. Error message: An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded: Please ensure your email address and authenticating user match when sending messages. Please verify that your email address is correct in your account settings and try again.

The other odd thing is that I get asked for a password before sending which never happened before.

I followed advice given someone in 2022 - I've messed with the account settings (unfortunately) and I've changed the SMTP settings to match what Comcast recommends.

I have 3 comcast accounts; two work fine on my iPad and iPhone - one doesn't

Also I have no problem sending emails using Xfinity/Comcast Mail... but I want to use Thunderbird.

Where do I start looking?

Thanks!!

I'm sure I've made the problem worse by trying to change the setup

It has been one year, and you still have not fixed the multiselect functionality that was ruined with your Supernova "update" (which is worse in almost all aspects btw). Can you at least tell us WHEN you plan to release the fix since you locked the comments to block the countless negative ones? Is it so hard for your UX team to understand that removing multiselect functionality is like removing Ctrl+C, and Ctrl+V and set the correct priority???

So I've had Thunderbird for a few years. I've always had my (multiple) email accounts set to both check for new messages at startup, and check for new messages every 2 minutes (I keep it open in the background so I can be alerted ASAP). However since the last 2 updates, I can no longer fetch messages either every x minutes, or manually (Get Messages does nothing), and the only way to get new messages is closing and restarting TB completely, defeating the point of having it open in the background.

I've tried: 1) unchecking both 'Check for new messages at startup' and 'Check for new messages every x minutes' = still can't manually pull in mail with Get Messages (the status bar says it's checking, but nothing gets pulled in unless I restart TB)

2) leaving ONLY 'Check for new messages at startup' OR 'Check for new messages every x minutes' selected = nope

3) starting and restarting both TB and my PC = nope

4) checking my antivirus isn't blocking anything = it isn't

5) checking all my email account server settings/passwords are correct = they are

6) testing out Betterbird with the same accounts and seeing if it's still an issue = this also affects Betterbird

7) checking my email accounts are working in other software like Outlook/webmail = they're fine, I can get email there normally

Any ideas as to how to fix this?

When attempting to add a second email address to Thunderbird, I get the same error message every time. I have tried updating TB and restarting my computer, here are the steps I follow, please let me know if I should include any diagnostic logs/how to get them as well.

Please note that I already have an account set up that actively works, both sending and receiving gmail. Settings > Account Settings > Account Actions > Add Mail Account Enter my full name, and email address, but leave the password field blank according to other advice on this forum, although I have also tried with entering the address. Press Continue, receive the "Configuration found in Mozilla ISP database." message. Select IMAP > Done. See a google sign in page, with my email already filled in. Select Next. Then I get a Google 400 error page, reading: "400. That’s an error. The server cannot process the request because it is malformed. It should not be retried. That’s all we know." If I close that popup window, there is now a message in Thunderbird saying "Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password."

Images with more details are attached below, note that this issue persists after both an update and a restart. Please ask any questions that can help you help me. Thanks in advance.

I have a very good PC (5800X3D, 7900XT, 32GB DDR4 3600), but Firefox (either the normal, canary and nightly version) can't play smoothly any 4K video (like the Borderlands trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lU_NKNZljoQ ). 1440 and lower resolutions are fine, as are 4K videos on Chrome and Edge. FWIW, my CPU during 4K playback is barely used (1-2%), and my GPU's video codec (VCE) is used by around a third. Disabling HW accel makes things better, as it still stutters but it's (barely) passable. I already tried creating a new profile, but still it's the same.

I just spent an hour on the phone with att and they say the problem is not theirs since I can access my account via the web interface.

Thunderbird keeps giving me this message when trying to access my email (Yahoo/AT&T). I have two email addresses with them and they both respond the same as below.

Error with account MyPrimaryBellsouthAccount Sending of password for user jarinker@bellsouth.net did not succeed. Mail server inbound.att.net responded: [SYS/TEMP] Server error - Please try again later.

I takes about 5 minutes to return this error on start up on when I use PF5 to manually check the mail.

My wife also has a bellsouth account she accesses via Thunderbird and it works fine on her laptop. So, I kind of think that rules out a home network issue.

I have some feeling that something somewhere has become corrupted in Thunderbird, but I am not sure what.

When going from Help on menu to check for updates receive the error message - Failed to check for updates.

Running on Windows 10 with NAV - problem is recent in origin but I can't be exact as it's not my regular PC.

So far I've manually updated Thunderbird from 115.11.1 to 115.11.2 (64bit)by downloading from Mozilla website, rebooted from cold several times, and applied the fix from Norton:" https://community.norton.com/en/forums/auto-update-norton-360-v2449067835-now-causes-security-exception-thunderbird " in case it was related. It appears to be unrelated because on my regular PC the NAV update occurred necessitating the fix to the security exception error but don't have the checking for updates error.

I have the strangest problem. If Firefox is closed and I do a speedtest in another browser, download a file, or do other internet activity I'm getting about 200-250Mbps d/l and 100Mbps upload. As soon as I open Firefox, whether I load a page or not, the upload speed stays the same, however the download speed drops to about 25-50 Mbps. This only happens on one PC, the upload isn't affected, and resolves itself as soon as Firefox is closed. Here's what I have done without any change in this behaviour;

  • Rebooted
  • ipconfig /release /renew /flushdns
  • Removed and reinstalled the network adapter
  • Enabled, disabled windows auto tuning and tested (slower disabled)
  • Updated Windows
  • Refreshed Firefox
  • Uninstalled Firefox, deleted remaining folders from Appdata (Local, Low, Roaming) as well as the program file directories and "Mozilla" registry entries. Restarted and reinstalled. Issue immediately resumed when Firefox was open.

Also when connected to a VPN Firefox download speed increases to about 60Mbps and is consistent across other software. If I split tunnel another browser outside the VPN, it is still stuck at 60Mbps. If I close Firefox the speed increases.

This makes absolutely no sense to me, so I'm hoping someone can shed some light on this - but it does seem to be something Firefox is doing.

Thanks for any help anyone can provide.
