I have firefox 78.0.1 64b on windows 10 installed I have teams of MS installed if you go the website of teams called by meeting invite - there is a possibility to start the teams standalone application. when requesting this in FF, it does not start teams - on the page is also indicated that FF is not supported for teams. if I do this in edge (I never use edge - just for test) this opens the appl is there a setting that would prevent this ? can we configure this to allow starting an appl ? thanks for all update/help best regards, Guy

There are a number of contacts that send me emails with images that do not display. Instead I get a box where the display should be with a picture of a camera in the top left corner. Clicking on the camera does nothing. If I open the page with Firefox, the images display correctly. Sometimes I can see that for an instant, the image displays correctly before it almost instantaneously disappears. This is bloody frustrating and I would love some help in having my emails displayed correctly.

Almost every time I try to send an email Thunderbird asks for my password. I type it in and check the "box" to save password. Password is saved in the security password file but next time I try to send email I get the same error. But like said before, sometimes it goes through without asking for password. Very frustrating.

I moved from chrome to firefox. The zoom meeting does not work. I tried first through the web site (https://zoom.us/) to connect to a meeting. It will never pop up the dialog to ask me and open up zoom.

I downloaded also the zoom app. I start the app and first I tried to lsign in. I click on sign using facebook, then a new window of firefox opens up. The site that tries to connect is (zoommtg://zoom.us/facebook?token=muM7ER9yHmD6ueNhhdFjQKv7lz5L7%2FZ9C2nWw%2FeSevroeFDWx5j6JG5wwmu%2FhEld0RXgcqknbhNqq%2B9PEG4na3Mc3C9VCbute08OO14STh8JLPiAHDLhmog6vZ4uFKru%2FjZ2DjoBdMXbA0rDHV3WhuiPJ0jLJNp517Ate38WD5vuGnoaOayscn3agXceYmNwcAZ6ZBnIIv67k4Ou%2Fy5nkxuyhvJNpDnMZwojeV4T8DNKv%2B8QQUGYB%2Fl2J5ILM825&errorno=0&errormsg=&expire=5130456).

Then it fails, it reports a error: The address wasn’t understood Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (zoommtg) isn’t associated with any program or is not allowed in this context. You might need to install other software to open this address.

I lookeup on the internet about possible solution. But non has worked. Mainly people implied that firefox does not has a protocol for the zoom tag. (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1280803) Indeed also in my case it does not. But like also the the last person noted in the the previous case, also in my case that did not help.

I have Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS, Firefox 74.0 (64bit).

Any idea?

"question: says it all. I have gone to "Options' and checked all the boxes and still I get only an abbreviated list of sites that I visit or have visited and this does not change with time. I have been using Firefox for years and this has never happened after an upgrade. For instance every time i want to go to my Hotmail account, I have to type in the URL in the address bar where as I used to be able to hit the drop down arrow in the address bar, a menu would drop down and i could click on Hotmail or Bank of America, etc and be taken to the site.

Let me start by stating that I'm aware of the possibility to set up a separate POP account, but this is not an alternative, I need have two IMAP accounts.

As some of you may know when getting a domain thorough googles Domains offering, one have in certain set-up situations use a gmail.com email address which is connected to the domain name, and used as credentials in OAuth2 or when creating or using an app password (from google security using the gmail.com address).

I have a dedicated domain name, let's call it "mydomain.com" which was acquired from and is hosted at Google Domains. When setting up the email account the email address it will be "somethingelse@mydomain.com" and the OAuth2 user and pw is taken from "myname@gmail.com" (which of course is different from "somethingelse@mydomain.com"). This is perfectly legit and used in many other email accounts, among other Outlook (Mac/Windows/web) and Mac OSX mail program without any problem.

The issue with Thunderbird, as I understand, being that myname@gmail.com is connected to "imap.gmail.com" stored at /home/myname/.thunderbird/yu9vjdct.default-release/ImapMail/imap.gmail.com, meaning that I get a "Incoming server already exist" message and hence unable to set up a second account using the same incoming server "imap.gmail.com" ("myname@gmail.com"), but for this other email address "somethingelse@mydomain.com".

Question is; it NOT as simple as stopping/closing Thunderbird and renameing "/home/myname/.thunderbird/yu9vjdct.default-release/ImapMail/imap.gmail.com" (NB! Name of thunderbird version may vary of course) to something else, since I have tried and does mot change the error message, obviously it appears that Thunderbird is set up to only use one and only one of the same "imap" account.

So my question is wheter possible att all do this in Thunderbirde aka solutions ( not using POP, as stated above) or is this simply a (probably an intentional) program feature (and not a "bug"?).

Thanks in advance for support.

Firefox occasionally displays the digit 9 as a dash "-". On any particular website this can occur on all pages, only some pages or on one part of a page and not another part of the same page. This occurs in the same places on Chrome and Opera but it does not occur on Safari. I have seen it occur on text sent from a website as well as on text I type. In one example, the font-family is Helvetica and the problem occurs on larger font-sizes but not smaller sizes sent from the website. In another example, when typing a credit card number, the font-size is typically small and the problem does occur. I am using Firefox version 77.0.1 on Mac OS 10.11.
