How do I stop Firefox from connecting to Yahoo analytics. Bitdefender is constantly stopping Firefox, see below

Online Threat Prevention:

firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an expired certificate to sp.analytics.yahoo.com. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since websites must renew their certificates with a certification authority to stay current, and outdated security certificates represent a risk.

I don't want Firefox to connect to Yahoo for any reason.

Hi there I have used Firefox on my android phone for the longest time, and never had an issue. A couple of days ago it crashed immediately on trying to open it. I repeated trying to open it across the course of the day - but continued crashing. I deleted it, and have set to use Chrome. I reinstalled Firefox - same issue. I am not techy-techy (!) but would like to have Firefox back on my phone as all my passwords are there. Any help appreciated Thank you :)

I have stated this issue once before after trying to find a solution by myself.

My query: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1363376

Whenever I boot up my laptop, firefox starts running in the background taking up a lot of memory space and cpu utilization. I have been with ffirefox since I started using laptops which is 7-8 years back. I never thought of switching browser or finding an alternative of firefox until for some months the issue is occurring. Now I am really annoyed to open up task manager every time and close firefox which is running in the backgroud. I have seen nothing unusual in the "about:performance" tab of firefox.

Please help me to continue my journey with firefox.

I need ONLY MY address saved, not every one that comes through a form. Firefox saves everything it sees and tries to autopopulate everything I do with all of them. I know how to clean the address list, but I work in an address-heavy environment, and if I cleaned it every day autofill would still be useless.

Please, need a switch to STOP saving addresses willy-nilly, but still autofill with those few I have purposely saved.

This was the original thread <https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1363425#answer-1471931>

In short, to summarize the original issue, one day after clearing my 'recent history' 100% once, gmail.com never ever became autofilled again. I can't get it to show up, no matter what.

I even refreshed firefox, still didn't help, sadly. The only thing left is to uninstall FF but that's a headache I don't want to do. and there's no guarantee that it would work.

Tried disabling all my extensions except for the most obviously fine ones like momentum. Didn't seem to help. <https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1176553> This guy had the EXACT same problem I had. So I followed through these suggestions. Didn't help.

1. Does anyone know what the right keywords for this would be if I want to google others who have similar issues? Looks like I can only just hope other people have the solution. But I've googled things like firefox not suggesting history in omnibox search. Hasn't come up with anything that worked yet.

Not sure when it happened, but some of the information for an installed add-on is missing. There is no author link or a homepage link. When I search the mozilla add-ons website I can't find the add-on anymore.

This is the add-on name and version:

Downloader for Instagram™ 1.0.4 June 3, 2020

I don't know why the Mozilla add-ons website doesn't detect what add-ons the user has installed when you search. That would be very helpful and why it isn't a default feature is dumb.

You have users sign in to the add-on account, why not include that feature to make things easier.

I'm guessing the solution is remove the add-on and hope another one can do what I installed the other add-on for.

I noticed the icon for this add-on appears in the overflow area of the toolbar. When I click on the icon it opens a link to a page that no longer exists when I search Google and the wayback machine archive site.

Firefox should find out if this happens and notify users that an add-on is defunct.

Anyway, here's the website associated with the add-on.

Hello thunderbird support, please help out: I keep getting this error 'Sending of the message failed. The message could not be sent because the connection to Outgoing server (SMTP) smtp.office365.com timed out. Try again.'

This problem started happening after an update to thunderbird, though this might be coincidental. When I send an email right away it always sends successfully without any issues. I only get the error popup when sending emails that are in the outbox 'send unsent messages' or when I schedule emails using send later.

Here is a list of things that I've tried. I'm using thunderbird on Windows. Email is setup as POP. -I've tried using Windows safe mode, problem still exists -Thunderbird troubleshoot mode, problem still exists -Disabling antivirus, problem still exists (uninstalled the whole antivirus, problem still exists) -Allowed thunderbird in windows firewall, problem still exists -Disabling Windows firewall, problem still exists -Creating a fresh new thunderbird profile under profile manager, problem still exists -Changed from wired to wireless internet, problem still exists -Whether I'm sending fewer emails or many emails, problem still exists -Tried clearing thunderbird: internet cache and cookies using CCleaner, problem still exists -Tried changing all the smtp settings to wrong and then changing them back again, problem still exists -Tried increasing the timeout time mailnews.tcptimeout in Config Editor to 500, and 2000, problem still exists -Tried changing the Connection Settings > Proxy - the 4 different options, makes no difference -Changing the windows clock to a week backwards in time and changing back to correct time

Extra notes: -Creating a new windows local account in Windows on same computer - works no problem! -Using other computers on the same network - works no problem!


I'm totally at my wits end. The username, password, smtp settings, internet connection & settings, computer are all fine. I'll repeat once again the issue, when I send emails immediately it is totally fine every time. When I schedule emails or send from outbox (even a minute later), it comes back with error messages. What is the difference between outbox emails and sending-in-real-time emails that causes this SMTP time out error?

Hi all, I've used Thunderbird for years on my old computer. I had POPFILE setup to filter my messages before they went to Thunderbird. I recently (Christmas) got parts from my children to build a much newer, faster and quieter system. My only problem is with my e-mail. I copied my whole "Thunderbird" folder to an external hard drive from old computer and then had to transfer the folder to new computer. The "Thunderbird" folder contains the folders "Crash Reports", "Pending Pings" and "Profiles" along with 2 files called "installs" and "profiles". When I downloaded and installed Thunderbird on my new system, it connected to my e-mail (xxx.mindspring.com) and downloaded a bunch of messages. The new messages are in a different profile then all of my old messages from my old computer. Is there a way to: 1) get the old left hand structure of my Thunderbird that contained all of my old messages back onto the new computer? 2) Is there a way to merge the newer messages into the older list of messages? 3) I have not setup popfile in so long that I don't remember how to do it and it looks like all of the documentation is gone from the web. I don't think I really need it any longer as I can just set filters up in Thunderbird but it was nice to use.

I only have 1 video card (an old 9600GT) that I have to swap between old and new computer to get the old file structure back. Even an low quality video card is so expensive these days! Anyway, I am reading my emails online (which I don't like to do!). I would like to get Thunderbird back to how I was using it before. Thanks! Greg

Hello,

I have been using Mozilla Thunderbird on MacOSX for about ten years, (currently Catalina 10.15.6) and have finally been frustrated enough with Thunderbird shutdown issues to post this question. When I shutdown, the only app that holds up shutdown is Thunderbird, which asks for each open window where I have a draft of some email whether to save that window or not. Is there a way to configure Thunderbird so by default it just saves all open windows and automatically shuts down instead of requiring to explicitly click Save for every open email draft? Or could the designers add a button that says "Save All"?

Thanks, Rick

I am trying to manually migrate my thunderbird accounts from my 2018 mac mini to my new 2021 mac mini M1 and I am having a heck of a time doing it. I have already invested over 4 hours to no avail. Maybe you can help: So I copied the profiles file from the old computer and dragged it over to the desktop of the new computer. I then opened the Thunderbird library folder under Go/Library/Thunderbird/Profiles and have tried both deleting the existing files (and replacing them with the files from the original mac) and also tried just copying the files from the old profile folder and adding them to the two existing files in the new mac profiles folder. I then close the folder, close the program and restart the program and in every instance this is the error message I get: " Profile missing; your Thunderbird profile cannot be loaded.....". I've tried every iteration I can think of and the only way the program opens is when I get a fresh install and fill out the fill in's when opening the program. Is there some sort of tool I can use to simplify this process? I am at witts end and I have no idea what I am doing wrong as I have tried everything. I barely understand computer code, so the answer has to be simple for me to understand what to do. I'd pay someone to walk me through it at this point, as I need to get this thing installed. Thanks.
