Firefox Desktop issue,

McAfee malware has entered the Firefox browser a couple of days ago claiming viruses have been detected & requires me to click on their popup to remove it. Additional warning follow and reoccur every couple of minutes. I don’t have McAfee Anti-virus software on my computer & have not installed any new software for some time. The anti-software I have works fine (Spybot & Microsoft Security Essentials) and detects no problems. The first application I initiate upon boot-up each morning is Firefox and that’s when the problem begins. It is somehow related to Firefox. I cannot find any processes in play.

I’m using Windows 7 Pro

Sincerely, [removed email from support forum]

I tried all six free malware scanning programs suggested but nothing found

I am having problems playing a particularly demanding video from YouTube (https://youtu.be/-W_nFlIAWFM) which runs at 4K/30 fps. It is a video taken from a drone flying over the Matterhorn in Europe. Here is my configuration: 1. I have a 200Mb connection to the internet and bandwidth testing confirms that it runs at a consistent 195 - 202 Mb. 2. I am using Firefox 126.0 on a dual boot machine running Ubuntu 22.04 LTS and Windows 10 (both OSes show similar stuttering and pausing). 3. My hardware is a Gigabyte Aorus Z690i motherboard with 32 GB of RAM and an Intel i5-12600K processor and an NVidia GeFroce RTX 2060 Super graphics card. I have tried disabling "Use hardware acceleration" in Firefox and also disabling all add-ons and rebooting. This hasn't resolved the problem. When I watch the same video in Google Chrome, it seems to display a much slower frame rate than 30fps but doesn't stutter. I have concluded that this video must be a super demanding one to render. There are many picture elements changing constantly. But is there a way to watch this at 4K/30fps with it playing smoothly and at the correct frame rate?

Hi I had some tabs open in private browsing which have frozen. Each tab has history but won't let me go back or forward. I have tried closing the tabs and pressing undo as this sometimes works but it didn't help. I really don't want to lose the tab history as it is in private browsing so won't be saved in history. Does anyone know a way to restore the tabs?

Hi, for some time now (around a month), after a couple of days using Thunderbird, I can not load new messages, can not send new messages, and it basically is nonfunctional. The blue bar down right shows an active process that never ends (for example, "sending message"). All menus and software as a whole are still operating, and there is no crash on hang, but every attempt to load my emails or send data ends with endless waiting (no errors whatsoever). When I try to exit the application, it closes down, but a process is listed in Task Manager. When I kill the process manually and try to start the software again, nothing starts (a new process appears in the task manager), but the software never opens a window or something. Only a full computer restart helps, and everything works again for 1-2 days. I have disabled all extensions and tried even troubleshoot mode. No crash reports...

Hello

I have a bizarre issue with attachments.

I open all attachments in their respective programs rather than preview within Thunderbird itself (I have also tried opening in preview but I get exactly the same problem).

When I receive an email with attachments, mainly Word, Excel or PDF docs, I click to open the attachment but nothing happens. If I save the attachments to my computer and try to open it says the attachment is empty or corrupt.

But, if I click to forward the email, I can then open the attachments as normal by clicking on them in the draft email and also then save them to the computer and they open as normal.

I am running the latest version - 115.10.1 (64-bit) and I have noticed this issue for about the last week or so. Otherwise everything seems to work as normal.

Any ideas on what is going on or ways to change this.

Thanks in advance

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.

using 115.10.1 for emails... each day there are plenty so i pile them up into one place until the folder reaches a size or a date and then we start over. yesterday, the pc updated and almost immediately the search was gone. i would type abc on the search bar and it would take for ever to scan through the messages. then i would click on the email i wanted but something else would open up in the message pane... https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/may-14-2024-kb5037768-os-builds-19044-4412-and-19045-4412-cb676101-1641-4a6c-b512-8b277606c6e3 https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/kb5034441-windows-recovery-environment-update-for-windows-10-version-21h2-and-22h2-january-9-2024-62c04204-aaa5-4fee-a02a-2fdea17075a8

today, i guess, it crashed completely . it started by firing of a warning that not enough space is provided which was not true, then it downloaded 10 messages at once... after a while, the message pane was lost. you click on an email and nothing. it selects it but nothing shows up. blank screen. double click, also opens a new blank tab. fearing a totally corrupt database or even a re-install i pressed repair on the folder. took ages. now, though, i have the profile folder in my PC intact, but TB refuses to load it. i only see the 20 emails i got lately. like starting a new profile all over again...
