A piece of software I need to use for work requires an older version of Firefox (Firefox 68.4.2 ESR) to run, so in the past, I've had to delete Firefox and re-download the older version which has worked fine. However, I recently got a new Mac and now when I try the same thing it's not working. Whenever I first open Firefox after downloading it, it opens as the correct (older) version, however it does not seem to be able to connect to the internet and I get the spinning wheel that never ends, and then whenever I close out of Firefox and reopen it, it automatically updates to the newest version. I have multiple times gone into the settings on Firefox and changed my preferences to check with me before installing updates and I've gone into the settings of the App Store to make sure it's not automatically updating any apps or programs. My computer is currently running OS version 11.1 (Big Sur) and I'm wondering if maybe this version is too new to be compatible with Firefox 68 ESR? Any help, ideas, or advice is greatly appreciated!

I was deligted to get the chance to try Mozilla VPN, but after payment I discovered that the "Linux" installer is just an Ubuntu PPA. I run OpenSUSE, and I guess there are a lot of other non-ubuntu linux users out there too.

I _completely_ understand that it would be easier to restrict support to Ubuntu for the moment, but I wanted to ask if other Linux systems will be supported in future? (Even if it's just a zip file containing the executable)

Thanks!

I followed the instructions for migrating my Thunderbird profile and its data to my new computer. It took me a few tries, but I eventually got my email up. All seemed fine.

I shut down my PC normally, and the following day tried to start Thunderbird. All I got was a red box containing the line: <window id = messengerWindow" <pre> next line: ^

with the Thunderbird logo in the upper left corner and nothing else.

There was nothing I could do but uninstall Thunderbird, delete all the associated data from my PC, reinstall and re-migrate my profile. It worked ok for one day, booting up normally and loading Thunderbird normally, but today I had the red box and general nothingness again.

Has anybody had this problem and is there a solution? It's a real pain to have to keep uninstalling and reinstalling. I'm on a Windows 10 PC, nothing unusual about my file system.

Live stream TV on Xfinity app blurs after 8-10 seconds. Initially the picture is crisp and clear then turns fuzzy.

This does not happen when I access recorded versions of the same program. The channels involved are not those restricted to be accessed only via my in-home wifi.

It occurs with a handful of certain cable network channels and it happens whether I'm using my laptop with Comcast or Charter ISPs. This condition does not appear with other web browsers.

Nor does it happen on my iPad, just my MacBook Pro and it hasn't always been an issue with the MBP. As far as a time frame goes, I would say it started happening within the last 6-9 months.

I appreciate any efforts to help. Thanks.

Hi I am running Firefox version 84.0.2 on Windows 10 (Build 19042) - Desktop mode I like to use my computer with a mouse only and I use the built in Windows 10 touch keyboard when I need to type something.

My problem is that every time I click on the touch keyboard button (lower right corner of Windows 10) when in Firefox, the touch keyboard opens and then automatically closes. I think this is a problem with Firefox because the touch keyboard works fine in Edge as well as Notepad and other applications

my about:config osk settings are as follows services.sync.prefs.sync.ui.osk.enabled - true ui.osk.detect_physical_keyboard - true ui.osk.enabled - true ui.osk.require_win10 - false

The message that appears under ui.osk.debug.keyboardDisplayReason is the following ui.osk.debug.keyboardDisplayReason - IKPOS: Touch screen not found.

If anyone knows how to fix this, please help

Привет всем.

прописываю настройки Base DN + порт 389+имя пользователя + фильтр (mail=*), поддерево(у коллеги попробовали у него всё работает). иду в адресную, пишу @, ни чего. ну думаю дай поменяю настройки (не удалил со строки поиска @).

иду в настройку адресной книги, в автономно нажимаю синхронизировать - репликация выполнена, при этом в адресной книге - не закрытой которая с @ открыта, контакты появляются. ну думаю, вроде как можно смириться с костылём - синхронизировать раз в полгода не напряжно - если экспортировать этот список. выделяю все из списка, экспорт в csv, импорт - он создаёт по имени файла книгу, но ругается что книга пустая - 0 контактов импортированных.

я пробовал и 68.хх и 17.хх

Windows 10 Pro + thunderbird 78.x.x


translate: Hello everybody.

I prescribe the Base DN settings + port 389 + username + filter (mail = *), subtree (a colleague tried everything for him). I go to the address, I write @, or anything. Well, I think, let me change the settings (did not delete it from the search bar @).

I go to the address book settings, in offline mode I press synchronize - the replication is complete, and a contact appears in the address book. Well, I think, it seems like you can put up with a crutch - synchronizing every six months is not stressful - if you export this list. I select everything from the list, export to CSV, import - it creates a book by the file name, but it swears that the book is empty - 0 imported contacts.

i tried both 68.xx and 17.xx

Hello: Since my last update Thunderbird has gone wonky on me. After updating to 78 I lost all mailboxes and address book etc. Thunderbird help said to go back one version, and when I did that, I got a message that my profile had been modified and that I should only use the new version. I tried that, as well as several versions, but no luck. I tried "-allow-downgrade" and that didn't work. I finally downloaded Beta 79 and tried "-allow-downgrade" and everything came back. But of course none of my third party add-ons (send later, templates) would work. Then today when I started Thunderbird all but two messages in my Inbox were gone. I tried to rebuild the index but my Inbox is still empty. My profile file says that my inbox is 20gigs. And Ive tried to backup my profile (and even make a zip file) but I guess it's just too big cause he process craps out. Please help me.

I use Firefox on a Macbook.

I configured the search (about:preferences#search) to include only one search engine: DDG. As a result, when the URL/search bar is focused, the bottom bar with "This time, search with..." is not displayed. This is the expected behavior.

Starting about a month ago, it started exhibiting a bug: at random times, the search settings are getting reset. So whenever I open a new tab and focus the URL/search bar, the bottom bar with "This time, search with..." is appearing and displays four icons. When I go to search preferences, I see the same search engines that I removed a while ago.

This pattern has repeated about five times, and I'm getting tired of it. Is there a way I can make sure that Firefox remembers my preferences and doesn't reset them?

Thank you, Alex
