Ok, this might be REAAAAALLY weird that i'm talking about a firefox version that was released in 2012. But i really need it on this windows 2000 VM. The problem is firefox 9 - 12 is not loading any websites or webpages. It crashes instantly upon opening them. Versions lower then firefox 9 - 12 work flawlessly. Probably nobody will answer this but it is really important for my VM.

After years of satisfactory service, TB recently started to fail login for several e-mail accounts

TB Err Msg: Sending of password for user xxx@verizon.net did not succeed. Mail server responded pop.verizon.net responded: [SYS/TEMP] server error. Several out of multiple accounts are failing this way. (all started at the same time.) These accounts are hosted on AOL servers but were originally Verizon.

Several other e-mail accounts hosted via gmail & Hotmail are (so far) unaffected.

Firefox crashing when rendering maps

For the past two weeks, I've noticed that embedded maps make my browser immediately crash. I initially thought it was a Firefox problem, but I have been having a similar issue with Safari. This does NOT happen on my iPhone using the same two browsers. This also does not seem to effect Google Maps or embedded Google Maps, but embedded maps from other services. Anyway, I'm posting here because Firefox conveniently provides crash data, I'm not sure what else the cause could be and I'm hoping someone can help.

Two websites this has been consistently happening with are The Empire State Trail bike path (https://empiretrail.ny.gov/) and a NYC vaccine finder website (https://vaccinefinder.nyc.gov/). Firefox immediately crashes, though with the EST website it seems to be tied to the pathway of the trail being drawn (crashing after I've zoomed in a few times and the path has to regenerate). Safari doesn't totally crash, but forces a site reload and after it fails a second time says it can't display the site.

Any ideas what the issue could be? I'm on the latest version of Catalina (10.15.7), Firefox and Safari and seem to have all security updates for all.

Here's a link to the latest crash data: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/1389c870-51cf-4790-b0a0-fd01f0211202

Recently I upgraded my Windows 10 to Windows 11 and since doing so, I've had consistent errors while browsing the web on Firefox. Most notably the "Humm. We're having trouble finding that site." error message.

For example, when visiting, say Verizon.com, the tab will display the aforementioned error to which I press Try Again and the website loads correctly every-time. No hiccups on the refresh.

I've tried the following:

  1. I've performed a completely clean uninstall of Firefox and then reinstall
  2. Cleared all browser history/cache
  3. Removed all extensions
  4. Disabled IPv6, HTTPS Over DNS, No Proxy
  5. Ran through Firefox's troubleshooting
  6. Used Firefox Troubleshooting Mode in the Browser
  7. Tested that the problem does not happen while using Edge

I've never had a single problem on Windows 10 with Firefox. Curious if others are experiencing the same issues and if there are any fixes. Nothing else on the PC has changed.

  • Windows 11 21H2 2200.348
  • Network driver is the latest Win11 edition
  • Firefox 95

Hello! A site kept popping up a confirmation window for an action I was trying to take, and in the confirmation window, there was a checkbox for something like "don't allow [this website] to prompt me again" (that's as best I can remember). I checked the box thinking it would just allow the action to happen without the confirmation window, but instead, the site just won't take that action anymore. How can I undo this setting? Thank you!

Before the latest update to Thunderbird, opening PDF attachments would bring them up separately in Adobe Reader, which was no problem at all. I'm not sure why a change was instituted to cause them to open in Thunderbird tabs, but this is seriously inconvenient for me.

When a PDF file opened directly in Adobe Reader, the text can be highlighted and copied. This does not work now when it shows up supposedly as PDF in a Thunderbird tab. I don't know about JPG or other file types--I've yet to have one of those where I can see it they cause trouble as well--but is there some way to turn off having email attachments open in Thunderbird tabs rather than directly in the operative software--PDF by Adobe Reader, for example? I can't figure out how to get such an attachment to open directly in Adobe Reader, but that's where I want it, not as a tab in Thunderbird.

Probably this is easy, but I can't figure out how to do it.
