Windows taskbar doesn't unhide itself when firefox is maximised.

Automatically hide taskbar in desktop mode => Enabled Firefox => Maximised When cursor is moved to outer edge of screen, taskbar should unhide (Expected behaviour) but in this case it remain hidden (Reality). Firefox along with all other spinoffs give same result. Chromium based browser works perfect, and taskbar automatically unhide itself.

As OLED screen have became common as monitor, Taskbar auto-hide is must. If this issue cann't be fixed I may have to change my primary browser which I used for almost 15 years.

Kindly, look into it. If Chromium can do it, why not Firefox.

Using Windows 11 Home version 10.0.22621 on HP Envy TE01-3xxx computer with HP Officejet Pro 8025e printer. When opening Thunderbird, the print spooler shuts down, and in TB the only print option that shows is the "print to PDF". The only solution we find is to restart the print spooler by shutting down and restarting the printer to have all the print options appear when opening TB attachments.

Hi, I've upgraded to Windows 11 today and couldn't open Firefox since. Things I've already tried:

  • Reinstall Firefox and delete all old files (Appdata & Program files)
  • sfc /scannow and DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth
  • Windows compatibilty mode
  • Firefox Troubleshoot mode won't open either
  • ipconfig /release & /flushdns & /renew
  • netsh int ip reset & netsh winsock reset

When opening Firefox in any way, i get a white window/just the window border which immediatly closes. When trying to start troubleshoot mode, the small window has the same issue.

I also checked the crashlogs and none were generated. The Windows event-logger also has no entries.

BTW: Here is a video of whats happening: https://youtu.be/AJP4rqZFxlY

I have no idea what to do - send help please.

So running thunderbird 115.10.1 (64-bit) and more and more issues:

  • the app keeps getting non-responsive for long period of time, to fix this I have to force quit the app.
  • at times when composing an email the app freezes where no typing occurs for seconds or typing is very slow or after typing awhile the text suddenly appears.

Seems to be happening more and more trying to figure out how it can return back to it's rockstar state when it was <99 version.

any help would be appreciated.

One of my email addresses has suddenly refused to send messages. The following error occurs: Sending of the message failed. An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded: Requested action not taken: mailbox unavailable Sender address is not allowed.. Please verify that your email address is correct in your account settings and try again. It receives messages fine. I've checked the account settings. It happens with more than one destination address. My provider IONOS suggest I delete the account for this address and reset it. However I'm concerned not to lose any messages in the various folders. I'm able to send messages from this account using webmail, but not using Thunderbird. Please can you advise.

It can now find Google Maps, but Google Maps cannot find a location, because it uses a Google search. I tried the fix in about:config, but it had no effect.

Gmail endless login loop (but only in Firefox)

Hi

I've been having an issue logging into Gmail using Firefox. I've used both Gmail and Firefox for years and have never had a problem, but I now get stuck in an endless loop on the Gmail login page. I select my account, enter my password, then get sent back to the account selection page.

The problem seems to be relating to me trying to link two Gmail addresses so that mail from one is forwarded to the other. I set up one account this way without any issue, but when I went to do it with a different account, I got an error code. After that, I was logged out of Gmail in Firefox and haven't been able to log back in.

Things I've tried so far:

  • Using a different browser. I can log in without issues in Chrome.
  • Logging in with a different method. Neither my password nor my passkey work.
  • Logging in with a different Gmail account. All of my accounts seem to be stuck in this way.
  • Disabling all my extensions. This doesn't help.
  • Clearing Firefox's cache. No luck here.
  • Restarting Firefox and restarting my PC. Turning it off and on again doesn't fix it.
  • Contacting Google support. They said they think it's a browser issue as I don't have any problems using Chrome.
  • Using Firefox's private browsing mode. This does work and I can log in to Gmail. However, I don't know exactly what the problem is because I've disabled all my extensions and cleared the cache in regular browsing mode and still can't log in that way.

So I have a partial solution (using Firefox's private browsing mode) but it's not a long-term fix. What else can I try? Has anyone else seen this problem before and been able to fix it?

Hi, i just got a new laptop (Asus Zephryus G16, 2560 x 1600 screen) and after installing Firefox there is a thin white border to the left of the screen when running in fit screen. This problem is not present when in a windowed mode or in F11 full screen.

I tried updating the Intel Arc drivers but this did not fix the problem. Changing to compatibility mode also did not fix te problem.

PS: in the uploaded screenshots it is quite dificult to see the white line(because the background is also white), but when the image is viewed in a new tab it is visible.

Thanks

Hello, I am trying to send emails from my iCloud account and it always fails due to the SMTP server timing out. I've tried making a new app-specific password, deleting and re-adding the account in Thunderbird, and made sure the authentication settings are right, but it still doesn't work. I can connect to the IMAP server just fine.

Several days ago, my comcast email said it couldn't connect, and after trying a couple other things, I removed the account and tried to add it back on. When I try to add it as an IMAP account, it pulls up a window that loads for a minute then says "Unable to connect. An error occurred during a connection to localhost." On the thunderbird window where I entered my password, it says "Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username, or password." I logged in on a browser, so I know the username and password are correct. I tried adding it as a POP account, and that worked fine, but I need it as IMAP.

Hi,

I've been happily using Thunderbird for years - I love this product.

However, on Jan 11 it suddenly stopped downloading messages. I made no changes to the settings. However, I did leave the country - I travelled from the US to Chile. Since I've been here I haven't been able to download any messages - when I start Thunderbird no messages get downloaded, and when I click on "Get Messages" nothing happens - I see a horizontal blue bar in the bottom right corner, but I don't get any emails.

It seems I also can't send an email. When I try I get this message:

Sending of the message failed. The message could not be sent because the connection to Outgoing server (SMTP) smtphm.sympatico.ca timed out. Try again.

What the heck? Anyone got any suggestions? You get a lot of likely looking matches when you google "thunderbird stopped downloading email", and I tried a couple of things (got onto the server and deleted messages starting at the date where downloading stopped working, deleted global-messages-db.sqlite) but neither fixed the problem.

Thanks!

I play a game at Vegas World. It's basically a free online slot machine site. I have played it for years with Chrome. Recently switched to Firefox. Playing an auto spin slot game, Firefox gets slow and hangs after about 25 spins. Chrome will go for 10,000 spins. So, Firefox is useless on game sites. I don't really expect a fix or solution. And I don't actually expect to use Firefox by the end of the day.
