I run ff on both desktop and mobile. I watch youtube on both. On desktop, no problems. Add ons include adbock for youtube. On mobile, I can see the thumbnails but when I attempt to play the video, I get "invalid response recieved" error message.

I've disabled the adblocking software thinking that was causing the problem, but nope. No change.

Whats up? Is Youtube attempting to force us to use their mobile app rather than accessing it through a browser?

Even after following the help instructions I cannot delete messages. Even after a complete reinstallation of Thunderbird I cannot delete messages. I can move them to other folders, but not to the Trash folder. I deleted Trash and trash.msf in my profile folder and created an new folder Trash. After restarting Thunderbird and looking at the profile folder there was automatically created a trash.msf. But - I cannot delete messages as before. Meanwhile there are a lot of messages I want to delete. What can be done? I would prefer to use thunderbird further instead of changing teh mail service if that problem can be resolved.

Hi.

Why would you remove FTP? It's not obsolete, I use it for work, and a good one third of my browsing is easily ftp sites such as NetBSD.org, ftp.gnu.org and others. FTP is still used heavily.

I really really dislike that it's gone. I'd gladly spend 30-40$ a year for a paid version.

I've been using you guys back to Mozilla, Firebird, Netscape and even earlier ..possibly related was NCSA Mosaic. C'mon guys.. which Millenial decided FTP was obsolete and uncool because it was old? It's how most of the Open Source projects and distributions still move data around. :~( This is the first time since I started using Netscape/Mozilla/etc that you've ever done something I don't like. The last thing I want to do is be forced to use Chrome or some other garbage. Please.. bring it back or some sort of external module we can pay for to get browsing back. Please! I beg you. (Trying hard to be really civil and nice here ..truely baffled that it'd be removed).

A.

Local Folders account has no identity, but keeps asking for password

My issue is very similar to this one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1270007 - expect the fix didn't work for me. There is an old, unneeded account (named "Beratung") in my profile, that I'd like to delete. Following the above mentioned thread, it would appear that this is the local folders account that was renamed to its current name. Thunderbird keeps asking for the password for this account at each startup, and renaming it to local folders hasn't changed that. I'd like to just delete this auccount and for TB not to check that e-mail address anymore - but since it's local folders, afaik that can't be deleted, or at least it shouldn't. I've also seen advice to just delete the entire profile folder, but I'm managing multiple IMAP accounts in that one profile, and I want to keep all the others. Any advice how I can make the local folders behave as they were never in use?

My provider's SMTP configuration or server is terrible. I have tried every support avenue to get them to fix it, it's not happening. For the time being, I cannot switch to another provider. A setting in Thunderbird to retry sending when the SMTP connection fails/times out would be wonderful. Thanks for your time.

Hi, I see that Print Preview is gone, but I figured out how to deal with that by setting the scale in Print mode. However, I have noticed just in the past week or so, that no matter how the scale is set, the web page will NOT print properly. I tend to print mainly receipts for online purchases and recipes from various sites. This is now impossible. I've done the troubleshooting and refreshing to no avail - there seem to be no manual print settings for Firefox. I've had to resort to taking a screenshot and pasting it into a blank Word document, which of course shows all the webpage extraneous stuff that I don't want to see. Can you help?

I can use other browsers without images being blocked in yahoo mail but when I try and send an attachment as an image in the body of email instead of showing image it just shows text "inline image".

When I use other browsers and send an attachment as a image in the body of the email it shows the image without any problems.

When I receive an email with scanned images instead of seeing the image it shows text "scanned image".

The problem started in version 88.0 and continues in 88.0.1

Hi, I have not been able to edit / add to my bookmarks for some time. When I go into the Restore section it contains several dates and various bookmark numbers (alot of bookmarks are missing). When I went to restore to a previous date that had all bookmarks I got a message that it was 'Unable to process the back up file' and I have lost all of my bookmarks. In addition, I am transferring from an old iMac to a new one possibly via a Time Capsule back up and have concerns the whatever the problem is with Firefox it will automatically replicate to the new computer?

I notice that Firefox will download and install updates in the background, and then wait silently for me to restart firefox to get the updates applied.

Can I either: 1) Make it so Firefox automatically forcefully restarts once the patch is applied 2) Make it so Firefox pops up something that offers the user to restart to apply the update.

I would prefer to apply this through policy, or a registry edit if possible.

Thank you

Hi, I have a dual boot PC running Cinnamon mint and Windows 10, from separate drives. The Linux version won't download my emails, saying there is a security exception, and that the certificate belongs to another site. I have ticked the store exception box, and this makes no difference. It did download some emails, when I first set it up, but only to 24 August 2020. The Windows installation works fine, with identical settings. Help please. Thanks Robert. PS if I click the confirm exception button, it disconnects from the server.

Normally use Edge. Using latest version of Firefox for something Edge doesn't do. I know how to get the Page Info (Tools/Click Padlock) but noticed in the popup context menu for this version that it is missing now when right clicking on a page or image. Only see View Page Source in the menu. Anyway to get the context menu back so it shows "View Page Info"? Maybe edit the "about:config page"?

Hallo, kann mir jemand helfen und eine Tip geben wie ich diese illegalen unerwünschten Firefox Updates stoppen und diesem Wartungsdienst die Rechte zur Installation von Updates entziehen kann. Dies nötigenden Zwangsupdates und unberechtigten Eingriffe in mein System finde ich ganz schlimm. Ich hatte mich mal für Firefox entschieden, weil ich hoffte die machen gerade sowas nicht. Allein schon das sie wissen, dass ich ein Update brauche bedeutet, dass sie den Datenschutz verletzen und das auf meinem PC erschnüffeln. Wären sie ehrlich dürften sie das gar nicht wissen, ohne mich zu fragen. Kann mir jemand sagen wie ich das verhindern kann, Ich habe gerade gar keine Zeit alles auf Opera oder Microsoft umzustellen. Selbst Microsoft fragt bevor es sowas macht.

Hello, can anyone help me and give a tip how I can stop these illegal unwanted Firefox updates and revoke this maintenance service the rights to install updates. I find this necessary forced updates and unauthorized interference in my system quite bad. I once chose Firefox because I hoped they wouldn't do something like this. Just the fact that they know that I need an update means that they violate the privacy and sniff that on my PC. If they were honest, they wouldn't know that without asking me. Can anyone tell me how to prevent this, I don't have time to switch everything to Opera or Microsoft right now. Even Microsoft asks before it does something like this.
