Since upgrading to version 115.8.1 I get unable to write email to mailbox . I have three email addresses in my profile. All are POP. One (from yahoo) always hangs and the other two fail intermittently. OS is Windows 10 64-bit at 22H2 level It doesn't matter if Zonealarm is turned on or off. I have over 300GB of free space on disk.

Full error message: Unable to write the email to the mailbox. Make sure the file system allows you write privileges, and you have enough disk space to copy the mailbox.

Uncaught Out of Memory Error Despite Ample RAM Availability - Firefox 126.0a1

Hi,

I am encountering an issue where Firefox throws an "Uncaught out of memory" error in the console, despite my system having ample RAM available. Here are the details of the problem:

  • Error Message in Console: Uncaught out of memory
  • Memory Usage Observed: Using about:processes, I noticed that Firefox's maximum memory usage caps at around 7GB.
  • System Specifications: The machine running Firefox has 128GB of RAM, so there should be plenty of memory available.
  • Firefox Version: 126.0a1

Given the significant amount of RAM available on my machine, it seems unusual that Firefox would hit a memory limit at just 7GB. I suspect there might be a bug or a misconfiguration causing this issue.

Can you please assist in diagnosing and resolving this problem? Are there any settings or configurations I should adjust, or is this a known issue with the current version of Firefox?

Thank you for your help.

Prior to about a month ago, downloading worked as expected: - click a link - the save to... dialog opened - choose the folder - the download is off and running

No more. For about the past month - click a link - wait for a long time with FF frozen - the a wheel starts rotating - after a full minute (or more) the save dialog appears.

Something has been broken in the mad-dash to push updates. It's fine for browsing, but the, you need to download. At that point you wish you were using a different browser (any other browser, in fact) since FF is the only oe that has this problem. Downloading works fine in a 8 chromium browsers that I have and in the 5 FF clones (like Waterfox)

It's just FF that's broken. I can no longer afford to set it as default because of this. The others are not perfect (WF won't activate Pocket, foe example) but downloading promptly is critical.

I have been getting a message that says firefox has something running and cannot shut down. I went into task manager and 'shut down' firefox, but the message keeps on coming. I then thought that I would uninstall it and then reinstall, but it tells me that it cannot uninstall because it is running, -"Firefox is already running but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window." When I click on ' Close Firefox' nothing happens. when I click on 'Cancel' the message disappears, but will reappear. Then in desperation, I went into program files and deleted the Fifefox folders but it wouldn't reinstall. There is obviously somewhere a file/file which is screwing me up, does anyone know what this it?

Hello! I need some help. Every since 4-6 months ago, Firefox has been extremely slow when I boot it up at first, with some page load times taking more than 10 minutes. Some fixes have seemed to work, but they never work permanently. From my testing, it is not the result of any extension and the issue persists in troubleshoot mode. What has not helped my testing is that, after enough restarts of Firefox, the problem goes away and web pages load quickly, so this has caused some false positives. Has anyone else had a similar problem they were able to fix? Should I try uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it?

Hello,

I have 3 email accounts. One is from my ISP and one is gmail and the other is gmail but not with a gmail.com address.

The one from my ISP has been out for several months. I can still read my emails by going to the ISP webpage. The other account that doesn't end in gmail.com suddenly stopped working yesterday. This is my work email account so I need to get it working.

Every time I would try to view emails, a Google window would pop up to log in. It doesn't accept my password. I checked my saved password and used it to no avail. My boss change the password to what I wanted it to be and Google refuses to accept it.

All my server settings are to the newer standard. I can't even log into my email via gmail.com.

I'm completely baffled by this. I'm also not some sort of novice.

I'm considering trying to archive the current year email's and then deleting the account and setting it up again. Perhaps my profile has been corrupted somehow??

I'd appreciate any suggestions on this matter.

Good Morning,

 I am having a problem accessing my email through Thunderbird.  I have a Comcast account.  Thunderbird won't access my new Comcast password therefore I cannot get my email thru thunderbird.  I have been on the phone with comcast and they suggested I contact you.  I am really hoping that you can help me with this because I've been using Thunderbird for a long time and I absolutely LOVE your email instead of using comcast website. When I try to put the new password in this is the message i get:
"Sending of password for user lmccleery1 did not succeed.  Mail server mail.comcast.net responded [AUTH] Authentication fail."  I also get the message: "login to server mail.comcast.net with username lmccleery1 failed."

The auth code is 1014.

 I will be anxiously awaiting your response and hopefully be able to resolve this issue.

Thank you so much, Linda McCleery

Im using Thunderbird Beta release. Starting last week, my PC would become extremely slow, to the point it would nearly come to a complete halt. After digging around, I realized it was due to excessively large Thunderbird NSTMP files that were being created. I would delete them and the speed would improve. But then a while later, the NSTMP files reappear and gobble up all my Harddisk again. Part of the issue is the sheer large size of the file, which will consume all available space on my HD, which at present is 600GB. But it also eats up all my RAM so my system slows down til the NSTMP file is fully built.

I use this as imap with Gmail installed on a PC with a 1TB SSD

Today after my pc started slowing again, I started poking around and noticed my main Inbox is massive, 29GB, which there is no chance its that large. All Mail is only 1GB to give perspective

This has been going on about a week.

I tried repairing my inboxes and other folders, but that does not seem to have helped.

Thunderbird runs slow...ie when I type an email I can easily type faster than thunderbird will accept characters....(this does not happen in other applications)...this happened about a month ago, and then stopped ( I have no idea why)...but the problem is back. I am running Ver 115.10.0 build 2024012173147. Rebooting windows 11 makes no difference.... I just tried to enter Troubleshoot mode and thunderbird stopped responding....Top line says Mozilla Thunderbird (Not Responding). Thunderbird is connected to my gmail account. ...and I run IMAP....with 'store all messages on the computer', but thunderbird wants to load every email from the server'

Any advice would be appreciated Rick

I've noticed lately that my Firefox keeps freezing and hanging up at random periods for no apparent reason. I have very few plugins and it even happens with them all disabled and removed. I've tried resetting Firefox to default everything yet it makes no difference.

Also I can not clear history. I've tried multiple different clear history plugins but none of them work at all. And when I try the traditional way of clearing Firefox history the window pops up and then the entire browser just freezes while 'clearing' and never gives me back control, I have to force quit and restart to regain control. And then when I relaunch the history is still not cleared!

So aside from the constant lagging and lockups it seems that any attempt to delete history whether using the inbuilt function or adding plugins messes up the whole browser.

Googling this issue it seems others are having the exact same problem with Firefox and yet any suggested solutions (reset browser) don't seem to be working for may of them.. Or me.

Mozilla account in Firefox PC browser always asks to re-login every 1 day. This problem appeared after updating Firefox from version 119 to 120 and 121.

As in the image below, "Account Disconnected" and a triangular warning appears in the Firefox menu bar. I can't access any sync data like passwords, bookmarks, plugins if I don't re-login.

I only use this mozilla account on 1 PC.
