Hi, I'm using version 101.0.1 (64 bit) for Ubuntu 22.04. When I open a link of a pdf file, the file is displayed in the built-in viewer, since I chose "Open in Firefox" in my settings. But then if I click the download icon nothing happens. If I click the print icon and choose "print to pdf" in the popup, then clicking on "save" does nothing and I have to click "cancel" to dismiss the popup.

Actually there is no way to save a pdf file but setting PDF app to "Ask always" and then open it with "System handler", but then the file is saved into the default download folder, even though I selected the checkbox "Always ask me where to save files" in my settings.

EDIT: the issue was solved by installing the following packages, as shown in this question :

xdg-desktop-portal xdg-desktop-portal-gtk

I am using the latest Firefox version 102.0 and I have igHome set as my home page. Yesterday the Google Calendar Gadget would no longer display the calendar but would display this message:

Firefox Can’t Open This Page To protect your security, accountsgooglecom will not allow Firefox to display the page if another site has embedded it. To see this page, you need to open it in a new window.

If I click on the “Open Site in New Window” button it does open the calendar. (See attached screenshot.) I have tried login out and back into igHome and my Google account but it doesn’t fix the issue. This is happening on both my laptop and desktop computers running Windows 10 Home. All Windows updates are up to date. I opened Firefox in Troubleshooting Mode and the calendar still does not show. When I use the Google Chrome browser with the same igHome home page the Calendar works fine. Is this something Firefox can fix, or do I need to contact Google?

I started Thunderbird as usual this morning & it wanted to install an Update. I said yes.

The Thunderbird.exe now tells me:

thunderbird.exe - Entry Point Not Found

The procedure entry point ?NowUnfuzzed@TimeStamp@mozilla@@CA?AV12@_N@Z could not be located in the dynamic link library C:\Program Files\Mozilla Thunderbird\thunderbird.exe

This means that not only my personal emails are gone but my business ones as well, including the dispute case that I have been working on for 4 months now. This is information that I cannot afford to lose, besides now having no email access at all except my personal gmail.

Discord hyperlinks will no longer open when Firefox Developer Edition is selected as my default browser. They open fine in both Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and Google Chrome when selected as Windows 11's default browser. When selecting my default browser it would show 2 instances of Firefox Dev but after uninstalling then reinstalling it there is only one instance in the default app list. I'm not really sure where to go from here. Maybe this is an issue with the latest version of Dev Edition or is this an issue with my Windows?

Thanks

I am on TB 91.11.0. It crashed a few minutes ago and now I can't start it. I have rebooted my PC. Doubleclicked on the TB icon, and it does show in the App List in Task Manager. I have never had anything happen like this before. Looking in the crash/events folder I can see that a report was made and uploaded. If it helps I can attach the crash report. How can I get TB going again? My whole life is in there.

Please any ideas?

I was reading email, archiving some and deleting others. After deleting a message, it started deleting all messages in the folder as if I were pressing "Supr" continuously. To stop that, I clicked on a folder. It showed the display "Are you sure you want to delete folder xxxx?" After clicking no, I went back to where I was reading and it continued deleting. So I closed Thunderbird. Opened a terminal window to test if keyboard was stuck but but there was no sign of a key being struck.

After reopening Thunderbird, there is no trace of the deleted messages. Those I manually deleted are in the Trash folder but those deleted without control are not. This makes me think it is not a problem with my keyboard or OS but something related with a bug at Thunderbird. Does this seem right or am I missing something?

I am using Thunderbird 91.9.1 (64-bit) on a clean new Ubuntu 22.04 install. All updates are applied up to date. I have not found any bug related to this and I do not know what to do. I am very wary about continuing to use Thunderbird.

Until several weeks ago, new windows created through Javascript with window.open() worked. We could pass the new size, and other features, e.g. menubar, toolbar, etc. and they would show up. As of v.76.0 this is no longer true. The parameters are ignored. If we use no parameters, the menubar, etc. do show, but we can't control any new window features. We have not changed our programs at all, and window.open() parameters still work correctly in Chrome, Brave, Edge, etc. How do we get Firefox to recognize the window.open() parameters (again)?

I have been checking all the help threads and I never did see an answer that works. I set my homepage to be msn.com and now it won't come up at all. I've cleared cached, history and everything else. I've done malware searches via various programs, including Malwarebytes and nothing comes up. I tried reloading the page as my home page using the suggestion of dragging it to the home icon as well as setting it in 'settings'. I even reloaded the firefox program. I looked at about:config as suggested. I couldn't figure out where to right-click to reset it as suggested, however I did do screen shot of the current settings and nothing stands out to me. I don't seem to be having this home page problem and, as mentioned, I haven't seen an effective fix for the problem except to use Chrome as an alternative.

Do you have a fix that I missed?

Thunderbird keeps asking for address book password everytime I open thunderbird. I have selected to "save password in password manager" but it won't save it. It works after I enter it, properly syncs my address book, but it's frustrating when to have to copy from my lastpass every time I open it.

I have looked in preferences in saved passwords and it is not there. My imap, smtp and caldav logins are there, but no carddav password. Nothing else asks for password, just carddav.

Firefox version: 102.0 (64-bit) System: Windows 10 21H2

I recently downloaded a file that may have had some sort of virus or malware. The file came up negative in Windows Defender and Malwarebytes but I deleted it anyways; however, I still get a download popup every time I open Firefox telling me that "This file contains a virus or malware." I've cleared the download library and browser history (cookies, cache, etc.) but I still get the popup from the Firefox.

Is there any known fix for this? Thanks!

I'm reaching out to see if I can get some assistance with Firefox on of our network. I'm System Admin at Goodfellow AFB. I've tried searching this issues on the web and found similar issues but solutions that were recommend online have not worked for us. Yes I have uninstalled Firefox completely and installed it from scratch. I know it has something to do with autoconfig file but not sure what exactly I'm looking for. Thanks.

The rendering issue is not seen with Chromium (Linux) or Safari (Mac). I have no alternative for Solaris :-(

I have read the tips etc, reset everything, but there is no difference.

This has been happening for a a couple of years, getting progressively worse, It has got so bad, I have stopped using FF on all but Solaris now. (and I have been using it for a long long time).

I need someone to direct me to what information/data is needed to be collected so someone can comment. Do you have any favourite page load test web sites that I can send out put to you from?

About a year ago, I was experiencing problems with the current-at-the-time version of Thunderbird which I have been using for ~15 years after transitioning from Eudora. After much frustration, I decided to move to the beta releases & the problem (long forgotten) went away. I thought that the stable release would catch up with me & I could revert to the stable versions one day but I understand this is not possible or advisable.

Q1 : Can I revert from v. 102 betas to the current stable ?

Q2: With the latest 102 beta 2 release (4 June 2022), all my tabs disappeared & I can not get them back. I may be missing the obvious but I can not see how to get them back. I tried reverting to beta 1 but no change. The update was done via the usual "help, about" when it prompted to upgrade. Help messages on the subject seem to refer to older versions where things were obviously different.

Clearly something went wrong & I am not sure if I can fix it myself or must wait for a fix. Any tips welcome.

I am now using gmail to collect my (multiple accounts) pop mail for me until the problem rights itself. I traditionally use pop as I am often offline due to location. This is also my first ThunderBird support question ever.

I have used Thunderbird for years, I think I may be forced to change! I have lost IMAP login Gmail, from Thunderbird, since the last update download (last email on Thunderbird is 6th or 7th June 2022 Thunderbird constantly says it cannot log in to GMail IMAP, requests to try again or get new password (for which it requires the password it will not recognise) Still using Gmail on my phone, have had to launch Chrome to use Gmail on my (old) iMac [running 10.13.6, High Sierra - can't update further], so I know the password is still valid. It is Thunderbird which seems to be the problem, here. Have read through various Problems/questions similar, but have not found a solution that helps

I had a similar problem with an update of Firefox, in that I was unable to use the browser - in the end I had to delete the browser, and several weeks later, re-downloaded. (This meant that I lost all my bookmarks etc, and had to re-establish passwords, but I'm now back to Firefox)
