Neither my wife nor I can sign in to our G-mail accounts through Firefox on this computer. We have no problem signing in with either account through another computer. When clicking "Sign in," we get a page related to cache and cookies.

I have gone through the steps to delete "cache & cookies" for MY gmail account with no change in behavior. (My wife did not want me to remove hers because she believes (probably correctly) that her password memory on the PC would be erased!

I suspect we'll have to remove ALL google info from this computer, but don't know how to go about it. The only "App" listed with a google name is Google Chrome.

Suggestions? Remove and reinstall Firefox? Ditto Chrome? (Running Firefox 94. something.) I'd like to see her stick with Firefox, but this is a real barrier.

I noticed around the beginning of the month that my incoming email came almost to a complete halt. I have been working on correcting this all week. Here is the weird thing. I get a notification from Thunderbird when a new email comes in. My Inbox number goes up every time like the email is in my inbox however they are not there. My inbox number continues to rise but no new email. Although every now and then one will show. I have had 7 show up since the 3rd which is what I usually get in an hour. Can someone please help?

Hi, around Nov. 2020, TB started using VCF 4.0 to export address book contacts (beside csv, tsv and LDIF). Prior to that I happily exported to previous VCF formats (2.1 or 3.0). I need to go back to exporting to the VCF 2.1 format, in order to feed the exported file to some other legacy application that will only consider VCF 2.1. Is there a way to do so with TB 91.3 (under Linux) ? If so how ? Tx.

My firefox browser has had issues displaying fonts when I have the "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" box checked. Its not all webpages as some have more bolded fonts, but it is more than one site.

I have scoured these forums trying to locate an answer, but for some reason the fonts are still so thin and unreadable. I have even erased all existence of firefox from my computer and reinstalled, but the issue still remains.

Please help me.

Hello, i've recently made the switch from Chrome to Firefox. However, I am someone who enjoys playing games in their browser. And it occured to me, that firefox seemingly lags and stutters whenever i try to play a game.

The two games i have tested are Zombs Royale and Wormax IO. These are two very minimalistic games with nothing much to them. The slowest computers can handle them...

I have a GTX 1080, with 12 gb of rams. I also tested on my laptop, which has unknown specs, but 4gb of ram.

Both devices performed worse then how they would perform in chromium based browsers. I wish to stick with firefox, as i hear security is a virtue with Mozilla, and Chrome really just wants to steal your data.

I might add, that i did follow a couple steps to make my browser more secure, I didn't disable stuff like webgl, but i disabled a bunch of other settings, here is the video i followed:

https://youtu.be/xxWXLlfqNAo

I did install a few add-ons, such as Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin, HTTPS Everywhere, and nightTab(I had this on chrome, and without it i feel home sick.)

I am unsure why these problems occur, as far as i know, my computer should be able to handle this.

I cannot find any other questions related to this, and it is really odd to me. I should also mention, Firefox is also quite slow anyways, it just feels slower than chrome, so i'm unsure if it's an optimization issue or what, but this occurs on all of my computers.

I hope someone can help me thank you.

Hello, I have a verizon.net email address that was moved over to AOL and it was working well for a long time until a few months ago when AOL did some changes and for some reason the password I enter on Thunderbird is not accepted but the same password is working on the website

Today I happened to find others on this site that have the same problem and one suggestion was to change the authentication method to Oauth2 which I did and it accepted the password and I can receive emails now but the outgoing is still not working because there is no Oauth2 in the drop down list for the outgoing server so I cannot change it

Is there another solution or workaround for this ?

I use Comcast for my Internet with Thunderbird for my email. For the last couple months I have been getting at least 4 or 5 emails a week with send dates in July of 2021. Initially I thought there was some glitch in the mail program. However yesterday I received an email dated 7/6/2021 with the subject "Renewal by Andersen Black Friday Savings!" While I'm not sure what the point would be, it appears the emails have artificial send dates. Thoughts/suggestions? Thank you.

I have version 91.2.0 and attachments for incoming emails are no longer visible when you open the email. They used to be in a box at the bottom with the options to open, save, detach etc. The only way to open them is by clicking message in the toolbar>attachments. Is there anything I can do to get it to display as it did before this update?

I'm on the beta channel and the new address book format with version 95.0b2 is awful. I have one address book for an organization that has chapters across the country. The former address books had a line for Organization. That's where I would put the chapter's name followed by the name and email address for that chapter's president. The new version has no place for Organization but the chapter name shows up for some chapters but not others. When I go to Edit, there's no longer a space for Organization so I can't add the chapter name for those that are missing. Please go back to the former address book format. What was wrong with it/why was it changed? Thank you. John

Once upon a time it was fairly straightforward to change preferences. It has not been for quite some time. The above instructions in the Release Notes, "Set mail.addr_book.useNewAddressBook to false" is not helpful. WHERE is this located? HOW does one access it to change it? Config Editor doesn't appear to be in place anymore. (Haven't done this in a while)

The new address book format sucks, starting with the gigantic font. And I don't see all the info that I used to see in the list- there is only display name and email address. I'm used to seeing more info at a glance. If you want to edit card entry, you have to keep scrolling and scrolling to find data to edit - can't just click a tab.

Folder compaction trashed messages in some sub-folders in two of my mail accounts. I'm not a happy camper today.

Peace.

Under: about:config browser.taskbar.lists.recent.enabled false

I have just made a Windows 10 system and I am not understanding the features now existing that weren't with Firefox on my Win7. I have turned the 'Frequent' off and now right clicking the Firefox icon produces 10 'Recent' listings. Being that I've changed FF's config to false, I do not know how to make these 10 'recent's permanently disappear. Right clicking one of these entities and removing only replaces with another.

Please help me to permanently remove 'Recent' from my right click of the Firefox icon in my taskbar.

Recently upgraded to Windows 11 and using Firefox 94.0.1.

Yesterday for no apparent reason all web pages I tried to connect to returned "Unable to connect". I thought it was my internet connection but when I tried MS Edge it worked?

I have tried a few of the things suggested - Refreshing Firefox and changing the prefetch but no joy.

MS Edge is still working fine. The image shows 3 pages with Problem Loading. Where to next?
