I use Firefox as my main browser. In the past when I clicked on links in Thunderbird's RSS reader it opened those links in Firefox.

Recently I also installed Chromium. I did not set Chromium as the default system browser. But now, whenever I click on a link in Thunderbird's feed reader it opens up Chromium*.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

I'm using Arch GNU/Linux.

  • - Yes I have got it the right way around! I could understand it if Thunderbird always opens Firefox despite settings. But that's not what's happening, Thunderbird is always opening Chromium.

Firefox - Add Colored tabs

I had Firefox version 81 and after installing version 82 in a new install on a new hard drive, I cannot change the color of my tabs anymore. I should see white tabs for the current tab but no longer when I added my userChrome.css file. I see instead a thin blue color strip along the top of the tab and the rest is grey. This shows up without any userChrome.css file.

In Firefox address field type: about:support It shows my Profile. vwy0y5ix.default-release I also have under the Profile folder this: jcueuz5y.default

I put the userChrome.css file here in my Chrome folder: C:\Users\David\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\vwy0y5ix.default-release

What it contains: /* USE THIS ONE. It works in version 65 https://github.com/Aris-t2/CustomCSSforFx/releases/tag/2.3.4

To whom it may concern

Thunderbird worked great with Goddady email server. Then they made a migration to smtp.365office.com. At first, it worked fine. Then yesterday I can no longer send emails with Goddady accounts they all timed out. I can receive emails but not send emails. I called Goddady and they had me remove the account from Thunderbird and recreate the account and still did not work. Still times out. All my Gmail accounts work perfectly on Thunderbird. Godaddy tech are stumped and said it was a Thunderbird issue. What do I do now?

I have three email address, all bellsouth.net domains. If I go to the AT&T Yahoo site I can login to all three addresses without a problem. Therefore I know I have a good password and the accounts are not locked.

Last fall I lost access to all three email accounts via Thunderbird. AT&T support told me I had to establish a secure 16 character password and convert to from POP3 to IMAP servers (this proved untrue as POP3 still works). After much effort I converted all three addresses to IMAP and regained access. A few months ago one of the three address suddenly would not login via Thunderbird. AT&T technical support proved no help resolving this problem even after hours of telephone time. I can still reliably log into this account via AT&Ts Yahoo site but not via an email client like Thunderbird or OE Express. On both clients I tried both POP3 and IMAP logins, and although both work for the other two accounts, nothing works for the one problem account. Thunderbird gives the following message when I try to log in "Login to server imap.mail.att.net with username xxxxxx@bellsouth.net failed.". I used both the original password that works with Yahoo and the 16 character secure password, with the same result. I also checked the settings multiple times.

I tried everything I can think of without success. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I often need to print or download pdf presentation files from online sources which I used to do on Safari (I use imac) On Safari, the pdf presentation automatically rotates on the print page, so then I can use "save as PDF" on portrait and everything looks good. (then I just rotate the file to landscape on Preview or PDFexpert to read the presentation).

When I try to do the same on Firefox, on the print page, the presentation does not rotate and remain landscape. The problem is, when I choose landscape to print, then the presentation is not centered on the page and skewed to one side so I get much wider margin on one side.

Is there a way to fix this issue?

I appreciate any advice or input!

Hello,

 I'm a Windows 7 user. For the past 3 weeks my Firefox browser (83.0) has been slowing down and then speeding up while visiting sites. I tried Safe Mode, Refresh, and Reinstall but nothing seems to help. It's not being caused by anything on my computer (malware, viruses, etc) because I ran several scans using Malwarebytes Premium, CCleaner Premium, Microsoft Security Essentials, even Microsoft Safety Scanner and nothing turns up.
 Is there any other way to fix this issue on the browser?

I hardly know how to describe the problem I've been having but I'm fed up with it! Just now I was in a site to purchase an item and clicked to go through PayPal. I could enter all my log in details for PayPal but it would not open the PayPal site. This has happened every time I've tried to use PayPal lately. I then have to go and use Edge and do my purchase through there, no problem at all.

Often when I've tried to open a log in window that opens in a separate pop up style window, that window will only open as a tiny window in the top left corner. I have to drag the bottom and sides to get it big enough to fill out. Then when you enter that info ready for the next section, it reverts right back to the tiny window once more. I've done all sorts of things in my settings and mostly no change. I did however get the bank log in window to stop doing it and work properly.

Another issue is the correct time for me here in Aust is no longer being recognised in some cases. One is the Track My Hours App. I enter 'Start now' and it says 6:55 AM when it's actually 4:55 PM on my computer clock! It is not the App as I now use it in Edge as well and it is fine there. I never used to have this problem with the much earlier versions of Firefox, it only started a month or so ago when I got a new computer with the latest version installed, at that stage I think it was 72 and I had other problems as well that finally got sorted.

I really want to continue using Firefox but can't do so with several sites and then waste a lot of time swapping over to another browser. I have version 83 now.

Can anyone please help!!! Thanks.

I have been using Firefox for ages and have had no problems with it or with Lockwise when it was introduced. Suddenly, this morning, when I tried to login to a favorite website, it didn't populate the login boxes. When I checked my list of saved logins, I found the entire list empty. Absolutely empty. I didn't upgrade Firefox (currently using version 83.0 on Windows 10 PC). Following the advice from several search results and even the support forum. I was going to copy logins.json and key4.db from the old Firefox Data folder, when I saw that the file dates were form Jan 2020. I have changed many passwords since (due to a hack of my facebook and Ebay acoounts), so that file is outdated. I tried to sync my firefox account, but discovered that I had never actually created a firefox account, so I cannot do that. I have no idea what happened to it.

All other settings seem to be okay and all my saved bookmarks are still there.

Firefox is having issues with WebGl on my Ubuntu 20.04 and therefore fails on several HTML5 pages (eg. https://www.wirple.com/bmark/). This issue is not present in other browsers so I chalk it up as an issue with firefox rather than my driver.

I am using NVIDIA driver 455, which works best on my machine by all benchmarks.

Here is the snapshot of my about:support page relevant sections:

  • WebGL 1 Driver WSI Info -
