Hello,

Quite à few month ago, after update, my new Firefox for Android does not allow me to access to the print option. I cannot find the page nor the tools options using my mobile. When using edge, chrome or other browser, I still do have this option and therefore able to print pdf copies of the resources I do want to archive. Is it possible to know why these printing options are unaccessible on Firefox using Android ?

My Firefox (Windows 10) updated to 105.0 this morning. I have https://www.google.co.uk/ as my homepage and Firefox always used to focus on the Google webpage search bar on startup.

Now it focuses on the address bar instead (i.e. https://www.google.co.uk/ is selected). How can I make it focus on the webpage search bar on startup again instead?

I already found this thread from last year https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1334131 and tried changing browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar to false but it didn't have any noticeable effect and the issue is still present.

Many thanks.

Since Firefox upgraded to 105.0 in the past day, every time I open it, my malware detection software gives me a notice that it has blocked malware. Here is a printout from the software:


Malwarebytes www.malwarebytes.com

-Log Details- Protection Event Date: 9/21/22 Protection Event Time: 9:36 AM Log File: c45b2d49-39ba-11ed-95d2-7824af3be113.json

So it appears that Firefox (and perhaps google) is showing up as a malicious website. Any idea why this is occurring? FWIW, my start page is startpage.com. The alert also appears even when I search using DuckDuckGo, and also when I go back to home page.

Any suggestions?

I keep getting an error message (see uploaded image) that says Thunderbird can't update to the latest version and to download it manually. When I look at the About for Thunderbird, it says it already is the latest version (see uploaded image). So, I ignored that error message the first few times, but when it kept appearing, I downloaded and installed the update (after backing up the Profile folder in case of mishap; see uploaded image). It said it was installing and then the Install box disappeared (it did NOT say "You already have this version" and stop installing); I assumed it had finished (although, it never asked me to do anything, even though the error message implied I'd need help, and I couldn't see any difference in Thunderbird after it finished). Today, I got the error message AGAIN (even though I updated yesterday). What does it want me to do? Is it updated, or not? I'm confused.

Now, irrespective of the way I close it, it always opens in non-private mode. is there a way I can bring back the initial functionality - opening in private mode by defaul?

Is it possible to add a feature to only mark messages as read after time upon opening in a tab, instead of also marking them as read after viewing in the message pane?

Currently if it is set to mark as read after 5 seconds and you view the mail in the message pane for 5 seconds it marks the mail as read.

The request is to only mark the mail as read upon opening/viewing after set amount of time, but not in the message pane.

When I attempt to go to the OneDrive browser site using firefox it fails to load. It isn't infinite loading, nor is it displaying an error. It just finishes loading but shows nothing but a white page. This issue is only on Firefox as attempting to go to the OneDrive browser site on Microsoft edge works just fine. It's also only an issue with the main onedrive site and the folder browsing pages. Going directly to a file loads the page just fine.

Hi. Since FF v103 it seems, when working with a VPN, and then trying to use also a browser extension VPN, it either does not or does not connect until after 45s. Before it was immediate. It works in all other browsers (incl FF before v103). So this is a recent change in FF that harms normal VPN connections. I found out by trial and error, that changing the port of the VPN extension to 443 and disabling and enabling the extension and going back to v103 from v103.0.1 helped, but that should not be like that. So something has been broken in the latest v103.0.1 - please kindly look into it. Thank you!

Hi, been using Thunderbird for decades and been of Office/Microsoft 365 for several years.

All of a sudden TB demands I re-enter the password? Enter correct password but goes into a loop. Check passwords in Passwords and they are correct. Logon to Office 365 manually and they work. Use e-mail with Outlook and all OK. Change the password but it still happens.

Was on TB 91.11.10 and upgraded to 102.0 (both 64 bit) but it has made no difference.

TB has got itself into a loop. What is wrong and how do I resolve this?

Hi!

Version: FF Android 101.2.0 (plus other version stuff I can provide if needed), Android 12

Just thought I'd report this because it appears to be a consistent, reasonably long-standing issue (months) on a popular news site. Or is it "just me"?

Website: https://www.theguardian.com/uk (several million uniques visitors per month)

Expected behaviour: I am able to open various links on this website as backround tabs and continue browsing.

Actual behaviour: 1. After a couple are opened, Firefox for Android hangs for very close to 40 seconds then does a deep redraw/repaint of all tabs and continues to function until I next try to open another background tab from that website. 2. During the hang tab interface continues to redraw, but the pages are not repainted and no taps events work. 3. At the end of this hang time, the pages appear to redraw from scratch and the context pop-up for the third long-press appears on top of whichever tab I was looking at.

It is 100% repro for me -- long-press fails when attempting to open the 3rd background tab, but repaint failure occurs earlier. There is something toxic happening.

Curiously, when I next view my Android Home screen, there is some sort deep refresh/repaint, as if it has been swapped-out or GC'd etc.

e.g. Is there some massive memory blow-out happening?

Context/workarounds: 1. I have tried clearing all browsing data and using a guess account on the phone. 2. I have no addins installed. 3. Neither Chrome nor FF Desktop exhibit this behaviour. This ia FF Android specific

Thanks!
