Hello,

This is more of a puzzling question. I have been receiving multiple daily notices to Compact the Folders, to save 503MB of space. Even after doing a "Compact" I get another request or pop-up to do it again. I even went to the pull down menu and did a "Compact" from there and again less that an hour later another pop-up!! I have upgraded to the latest version 115.8.0 (64-bit) and the same thing happens.

I know I have an option to make the "Compacting" automatic but I am concerned that it will happen constantly and block me from normal usage at the worst time.

The the question is: What am I missing or what is the solution??

Thanks,

Les

Firefox spawn too many child processess, with cause the browser to freeze.

Proposed solution:

Reduce to absolute minimum the spawn child processess. The value should be set according to the device performance and additionally show allow the user to set manually the limits.

Example: 1 (maximal 3) child process per tab/window

YouTube videos at 4k lagging/buffering using vp09 codec

Example video I have issues with: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udXuzXhb9WY)

I can't watch youtube videos smoothly using the vp09 codec at 4k/1440p [Codec: vp09.00.51.08.01.01.01.01.00 (313) / opus (251)]. Constant buffering, lag, pausing of the video or just not playing at all keeps occurring with the video I put above for example, and other videos using the same codec.

My internet connection is very quick in fact, with getting ~90mbps upload/download. My computer specs are good, having an i7 12700kf and an rtx 3060 with 64gb of ram. All my drivers are on the latest version. The video I linked above plays for about 10 sec before not loading more of the video and just infinitely loading (The main issue that is causing this to happen is that when I open stats for nerds, the buffer health isn't being updated).

I tried various solutions online that I found on forums, such as forcing av1 encoding, which fixes the issue, however on that specific video I linked, keeps the quality at 1080p, which probably is a issue on youtubes part and the file format of the video. I tried many other fixes.

On microsoft edge, the video plays fine with no playback stutters or anything. I don't have any 3rd party extensions installed that may affect the video playback. I did a lot of things to eliminate as many variables as possible, but the issue persists. I did a full reinstall of the browser, reseting cookies and temp data and also trying the nightly version of firefox, but non of those fixes worked. Basically everything I thought of I did.

Like I mentioned before, this issue is NOT only for the youtube video I linked, but its for all videos using just the vp09 codec for the 4k/1080p quality. The only fix I did find for that video is actually while writing this, I left the tab open for the youtube video for a while then played it and it played smoothly with no interruptions and the buffer health was constantly being updated, but after refreshing the page, it was the same.

From what I can remember this issue hasn't been happening for the lifespan of my pc (less than 6 months), and I cannot remember when the issue started happening. It seems to be pretty recent (maybe 2-3 months if I were to guess). At first I started tolerating it and thought it was a small bug since it only happened on videos I played at 4k using the vp09 encoder, but now its really frustrating and makes it possible to watch most 4K content. Some videos I notice when it starts buffering, it resorts to an alternate av1 codec for 4k video, but its only for certain videos. Unfortunately I cannot back track and see what started this issue.

Here is some additional info:

   Windows 11
   NVIDIA Game ready driver version (555.85)
   No abnormal resource usage (Gpu, Cpu ram etc.)

There's not really much skirting around it. Yesterday, I came across this sudden error with my Firefox browser on PC (see annexed image), which basically rendered me unable to open it for some reason. It did get fixed that same day somehow, though for a short while, as I was faced with the same error message again today and once again haven't been able to open my browser, much to my frustration.

I tried searching about it on the internet, but didn't find anything of help – most videos about it refer to a mistake on the Windows OS with the same code (0xc000185); asking around to people I knew didn't do much, either.

Today I tried a bunch of stuff to see if it resolved my problem in any way, such as: 1. Restarting my laptop (didn't work); 2. Installing both suggested and optional updates available to my Windows version (put me at ease a little, but still didn't work); 3. Searching for malware (antivirus didn't find anything, so I'm thankful this one didn't work); 4. Verifying system files with 'sfc /scannow' (all was good, so it didn't work);

I was also going to try doing a 'chkdsk /f /r', but I didn't have time to, as I had to leave for something. There are also other things such as creating another profile, which I'm considering; updating Firefox, which I can't do because I can't open the browser to check if there are any updates; and reinstalling Firefox, which I'm slightly afraid to do and will leave as a last resort because I don't want to risk accidentally doing it wrong and losing all my history, bookmarks, etc.

Any help would be incredibly welcomed. Thanks in advance.

P.S.: The text on the error message reads (translated from PT-BR): "The app couldn't be started correctly (0xc0000185). Press OK to close the app." Sorry if the photo isn't very good.

I previously enquired and was given a ticket number 150321. I later replied to say that the problem had gone away. This proved to be very short lived. The problem is that drop-down menus are blank. Thus clicking on "New Message" button produces a minimised blank dialog. Thus I am unable to send new e-mails. Clicking on other links such as help, tools, file etc produces narrow blank dialogs. I am able to continue receiving and reading incoming e-mails. Re-starting the computer sometimes produces a short term improvement. I am using an AMD 6 core CPU 32-bit operating system, x64-based processor I am trying to use Thunderbird 115.9 on Windows 10. It used to work, but the recent, continuing malfunction might be due to an automatic update, but I was not aware of the version number until the malfunction happened.

Since starting my Win 10 Pro computer today, Thunderbird 115.4.2 (64-bit) has been "dead in the water". When it's launched, it posts the customary "Downloading Message 1 of [N]" status report, but then hangs right there, takes 3 or 4 minutes even to (re-)populate the tabs and panes that had been open, doesn't get past the alleged first new msg even in 15 or 20 minutes. When it does populate the Inbox pane, it shows no messages newer than last night just before shutdown. Very sluggish response to cursor, too: for ex. 30 seconds from clicking on a msg title in the Inbox pane to displaying that msg, even longer to bring up Help/About (with "Not Responding" shown in its title bar.)

  I get my mail through gmail's IMAP server but prefer to use Tbird's interface . Thinking there might be something evil about the first msg that was waiting to be downloaded, I used gmail's web interface to review everything new since last night, deleted several msgs that had attachments, then started Tbird again.  No change.  Can't even get Tbird into the "Work offline" state because it attempts download-of-new-msgs immediately after being started.
  The only consistently effective way I have found to STOP the hung Tbird is through (Classic) Task Manager's "Processes" list, which usually shows five or six "thunderbird.exe" instances.  After selecting whichever has the largest memory allocation I click on "End Process."
  This all "feels like" a bollixed internal state.  Does Tbird store internal-state information in its own file, or is it buried in the Registry?   If I attempt restoration from a backup, which files are needed; or is that unwise?
 I see there is a mid-April update available to 115.10; would installing it reset current messed-up internal state, or will that already messy situation prevent the update?   Is there any risk of losing my Inbox, Sent, etc contents?

Thanks!!!

I tried Safe mode -no go I tried following GoDaddy's instructions for IMAP but also did not work. FYI The GoDaddy help desk said: "Please match the server settings with the below server settings.

I am currently using T-Bird 115.11 on Windows 10. Not that it matters much, because I have had this problem continually for years with various editions of Thunderbird on Win7 as well. Often when I open Thunderbird, I discover it has created hundreds and even thousands (today 65,000) duplicates of emails in various mailboxes. This has nothing to do with downloading. The emails in question were downloaded weeks or even months ago, and I havev't accessed them. Another problem is that Thunderbird creates emails dated in 1970, even before anyone thought of the internet, let alone PCs or emails. Why is this happening? How can I prevent it?

I permanently deleted all messages in a folder (call it "Unwanted"), then moved Unwanted to Trash, then deleted it permanently. It appeared to be gone. However the next time I opened Thunderbird, Unwanted was back. I tried this several times with the same result. I tried renaming it to "DeleteMe" but then I got the message "The folder could not be renamed. Perhaps the folder is being reparsed, or the new name is not a valid folder name."

Once again, I "permanently" deleted Unwanted and closed Thunderbird. Using a file manager, I found and deleted all relevant folders and files matching "Trash.*" and "Unwanted*.*" and rebooted the computer. However when I opened Thunderbird, an empty "Trash" folder was regenerated as expected, but the "Unwanted" folder was back.

How can I get rid of Unwanted? Thanks!

I use a Google Workspace account in Thunderbird. I have six main folders and each has sub-folders. I create search folders for each and favorite them so they’re across the top in TB. The individual emails then show up in each and I can chose to only show the unread ones. As far as I know TB is the only email program to allow this and it’s great. Recently I’ll be working away, pleased that I’m not getting inundated with emails, only to find out that I’m missing bunches of emails because the folders aren’t updating. I can open the individual folders and they’ll download new emails, which will then populate the search folders, but not getting to emails in a timely fashion is a problem. Anyone know what’s going on? TIA.

Looking for a fix on a right-click issue that I keep having...

When using Linux Mint (Cinnamon), the right-click context menu occasionally becomes misaligned with the cursor position. Attached image shows a right click on the text box in the right browser window triggering a popup in the left browser window.

This most frequently happens when:

  • Multiple windows are open AND
  • The window being right-clicked on is "snapped" into place (by dragging to the side of the screen)

Error seems to occur most frequently on windows snapped to the right-hand-side of the screen.

Context menu placement is offset by an arbitrary amount determined at time of window-snapping. E.g., moving the cursor down 1 inch in the example image below will move the menu down 1 inch as well. Un-snapping the window, and re-snapping can adjust menu-cursor-offset distance.
