I just purchased a MeLe Quieter2. It was loaded with some version of Windows 10. I downloaded Ubuntu to a removable storage device (thumb drive?) and want to download the Ubuntu Operating System to my MeLe mini. I really want to avoid "bricking" my mini desktop at all costs. My ultimate goal is to have my mini totally Linux oriented with Firefox as my browser and removing all Windows software, all Google apps, all social media and anything else that wants to market to me, demand my location and generally futz up my system. Can anyone help?

I am facing three problems: 1. I cannot edit entries in my calendar, even though the read only box is unchecked in Calendar Properties. 2. I cannot change the location of my calendar in Location in Calendar Properties. Right now it is saying it is Home.csv even though my calendar is stored in Home.ics (see attached image). 3. no calendar reminders are showing up even though "show the reminder dialogue box" and "show missed reminders for writeable calendars" are checked under Calendar preferences (see attached image).

I am running Thunderbird 91.5.1 on a Wiindows 10 desktop.

Any guidance that can be provided would be greatly appreciated

I have two computers. On one I have no issues with Firefox. The other computer I have a major problem with "Secure Connection Failed" - I cannot open sites like CNN, Yahoo Mail, etc. As I have looked into this it seems this is a big Firefox issue. What advise can you provide to make this nightmare go away. I really like Firefox and I don't want to give it up. I have tried the "ABOUT:CONFIG" True/False solution and that did not work. PLEASE tell me there is a SIMPLE solution to this issue.

I am on site 1 (site1.net) in a video call. In the permissions pop-up of the FF browser it shows me that cross-site cookies are allowed for site 2 (yetanothersite.com). See the screenshot attached. Both sites are totally unrelated and have no link whatsoever. I visited site 2 once many months or a year ago. To my understanding it is very odd, that there is a permission for cross-site cookies from site 2 on site 1. This permission is not set on any other site. How could this permission have been set up, was it me, is this a bug? How come there is a permission for site 2 on site 1 while they have no interrelation? I have searched through the cookies.sqlite DB and found nothing irregular. The privacy / tracking settings are set to the "standard" choice. What am I missing here?

The system is Windows 11 with current FF 96.x.

I receive numerous emails from one individual. He always sends from the same address (webmaster@fvwwc.org). But on the message list window, he shows up with no less than 4 different "Correspondent" names. In the message window, the From: line gives whatever correspondent name has been given and right beside that <webmaster@fvwwc.org>. So if I sort my received messages by correspondent to find something he sent, his emails end up in 4 different positions on the list. Now, he is not changing how he sends his email. How do I get Thunderbird to assign him just ONE correspondent name? Where is this translation table hidden? If it matters, his correspondent names are: FVWW Webmaster, FVWWC Webmaster, Webmaster@FVWWC, and webmaster@fvwwc.org (the only correct one).

Greetings, Firefox community.

So a couple of months ago my Firefox browser (in a 2017 Macbook Air running MacOS Monterey 12.1) began having problems connecting specifically with Google websites (address bar search engine, Drive, Calendar, Gmail, YouTube, etc.).

Some days, my first search will go through, but then, with all posterior attempts, all I get is the "SSL_ERROR_HANDSHAKE_UNEXPECTED_ALERT" error code.

I have tried logging off my Firefox account, reinstalling the browser, resetting all settings ("Refresh Firefox" button), cleared startup caché, and clearing all caché and data from these websites, but I keep getting the code and can't get through to the website.

The websites work normally in Safari.

I'd really appreciate your help, as it is very frustrating to have to use another browser only for Google searches, YouTube and GMail (Firefox continues being my favorite browser).

Every time I tried to access my e-mail [or send e-mail], I received this Firefox error: "Server imap.earthlink.net has disconnected. The server may have gone down or there may be a network problem." I was able to send and receive small e-mails; but I was unable to receive somewhat larger messages, including information on how to join a very important Zoom meeting. After spending 90 minutes on the phone with Earthlink, I was finally able to access some [but not all] larger e-mails by going around Firefox and going to earthlink.webmail.com directly. But, the Earthlink tech support person was unable to detect what was wrong in Firefox. I was eventually able to join the end of the Zoom meeting. After the meeting, I then went back to Firefox and was able to get and send some messages, but I'm still getting the same error message - and I'm not sure what messages I'm missing. I sure hope someone can help!

I am using Windows 10 on an Aspire E17. After startup over the last month or more, I have found that Firefox is taking an exxxxxtremely long time to load - something approaching 10 minutes at time. I have the opening page set as Google and that seems to be the one that loads the longest, others pages less so. Some of this is also due to Windows' MsMpEng.exe, which is of the habit of hogging around 100% of memory resources according to task manager.

Any suggestions?

I am using Firefox 96.0 running on Ubuntu 20.04. The procedure described on this site to create a desktop shortcut for a website (click on padlock, drag it to the desktop and release) does not work. A grayed image of the URL being dragged moves onto the desktop when dragged, but when the mouse button is released that grayed image springs back to the URL field.

I also tried the alternate procedure i.e. drag a shortcut from the Bookmarks menu onto the desktop. The same failure sequence as described above occurred.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Firefox has been running fine for me for a long time but recently, like the last week or so, it has been crashing constantly. When I first boot up my computer, it will be fine for awhile and then it'll just crash. If I try to restart it then, it will either immediately crash or crash after a few seconds. sometimes it will hold together for a bit and then crash. I've had it crash when I've clicked to move to a new webpage, and I've had it crash when it is just idling on a webpage. I have already tried troubleshooting mode and it still crashed, so its not my extensions. Ive also tried to reinstall it and that has not helped either. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

using Firefox 96.0.3 on macOS 12.1

i've been creating some Google Docs this week and using the various Roboto font weights (Light, Thin, Normal, Medium, Bold) to format them with. the majority of the docs are using the "Normal" weight.

suddenly, i came back to it today and ALL the "Normal" weights display as "Medium" and all the "Medium" are displaying as "Normal" - even in the dropdown font selector menu.

it looks normal in Safari. and the Roboto variants look normal when viewing at fonts.google.com. so it's only in Firefox on Google Docs (as far as i can tell).

i have tried running in Troubleshooting Mode, which didn't change anything. so i event went as far as deleting all Addons, and completely resetting Firefox to factory defaults. the problem persists.

any ideas?

Hello

So for the past couple of months I have had problems with my laptop keyboard. At random times I couldn't type anymore (also not outside of Firefox). To fix the problem I always reinstalled the keyboard drivers so I thought that my driver's were the issue. But this week it happened several times just after openingen the browser so I realised this was the problem. I opened Firefox in safe mode and I didn't have any problems with my keyboard, so I refreshed Firefox but the problem came back. I only use a few extensions that are recommended or made by Mozilla. I have been using an other browser for the last couple of days and haven't had any problems.

Hi, Vols! ~

Yeah. So, during the day today, while I was on the phone and tending to a matter that involved navigating on certain Browsers and simultaneously cross-referencing back to my email in Tb, suddenly my Inbox purged off about 19k emails, which don't seem to have been moved to any other of my files. They just were dumped and vanished!

Interestingly, my Inbox is now constantly maintaining at 10,000 even, even as new emails keep coming...

Why would this happen? And, can they be retrieved???

Thanks everybody!

This is a bit strange...

Thunderbird (v91.5.1, 64-bit, Win 10 Pro) connects to my POP3 account but doesn't download anything.

If I then pause Kaspersky (Internet Security) Thunderbird then connects and downloads emails.

I then re-start (un pause) Kaspersky and....Thunderbird continues to connect to my POP3 account and download files. If I stop and re-start Thunderbird I have to go through the Pause / un-pause process again.

Kaspersky is set to NOT scan encrypted connections.

It is set to scan secure traffic in Mozilla applications using the Windows Certificate store. I have disabled this and it makes no difference. I have also tried setting it to use the Mozilla certificate and installed that into Thunderbird...and it makes no difference.

All this feels like a Kaspersky issue except for the fact that once I have paused Kaspersky, and Thunderbird connects to the POP3 account, it continue to connect after I've restarted Kaspersky.
