My instance of tbird makes a little chirp sound every hour. I cannot figure out why. It is the same sound I hear if a reminder notification is raised. The timing of the chirp is one hour from whenever tbird was launched. There is nothing I see listed in the calendar that could cause it. Can someone tell me where to check to figure out what this is about and get rid of the chirp?

I have been using Thunderbird successfully for many years, but since last night I have been unable to open it. I hadn't made any changes. I get the message "Unable to login at server. Probably wrong configuration username or password." The settings appear to be correct.

I am not receiving emails from gmail, but rather from Spectrum roadrunner.com. However, I can successfully access any new emails on the Spectrum webmail page, so that (presumably) confirms that the password is correct and the problem is not with Spectrum.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!

Hello,

When I open my application in Firefox, form elements dissapear, I see onlu blank page, but I have found that at the end of the
which displays form elements, I found the attribute
at DOM.

I wonder why this is happening and is it the fault of Mozilla or a bug on the frontend side of my application. But at the other browsers this problem do not appear. I tried to open the form in safe mode, incognito, no add-ons, tried to create a new Firefox account, tried without logging in, but none of these options gave the expected result - the tab disappears after I refresh the page. I am asking for help.

Hi all,

My Firefox version is 102.0.1.

I upgraded my desktop from Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to 22.04 LTS.

I removed Firefox from snapd and installed as a deb package.

I noticed these events happening on my system:

1. No voices on getVoices():

  https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/SpeechSynthesis/getVoices

2. On my system,

$ spd-say -O OUTPUT MODULES espeak-ng-mbrola espeak-ng

$ spd-say -L NAME LANGUAGE VARIANT

spd-say -L outputs an empty table, even though spd-say "Hello world" works.

The second module espeak-ng has voices installed. Running spd-say -o espeak-ng -L produces a long table.

Iam not sure if this is a Firefox issue or an Ubuntu issue.

Every time I launch Firefox a message appears on the top right corner asking to update with the following text: "Update available Download the latest version of Firefox"

I have never followed this message for I've suspected fake, but it keeps appearing, and every time more and more often along the day (at the beginning it was only once per launch). This keeps occurring in spite of updating to the latest Firefox update (103.0.2) through the "About Firefox" top left menu on my Mac.

Please advise how to get rid of this annoying message. Is this a potential hack or virus attack?

102.1.2 upgrade causes IMAP synchronization issues

Running 64-bit 102.1.2 on Windows 7 (need to maintain Windows 7 as part of my work). When I first upgraded to 102.1.2, the local (synchronized) copies of my mailbox were immediately corrupted. Server copies are fine. I saw, for example, that many key folders had dozens or even hundreds of sub-folders of the same name with a sequence number tacked on (INBOX-0001, INBOX-0002, ... INBOX-1050 for example -- I forget the exact zero padding but it was in the names). I tried a few things then resorted to removing all the local *.msf files for a full rebuild. This is a fairly large set of folders so rebuilds can take a while but this one seemed a lot slower. Then, during the rebuild it would stop and leave some IMAP folders unsynchronized. In some cases this caused filters to fail with "no such folder" type errors. I thought I finally had it fully rebuilt, which involved having to visit each folder, or select sets of folders and compact them. But then, on exit/restart, a bunch of folders were once again out of sync. I have the total messages header set for folders and I'd see big chunks of those empty after restarting -- where I had just painfully got them all sync'ed and showing totals before the restart. The total folder size still shows, but upon visiting the folder it ends up doing a full sync of that folder. Some of these folders have a lot of message so this has become extremely painful. And if visit enough folders it bogs Thunderbird way down running their resync's in parallel (there seem to be a limit to how many though). It can slow Thunderbird way down, to the point of not being able to use it for periods of time ... sometimes the hourglass is also on for a long time (10-20 minutes). The folders are no longer corrupt -- just some subset of them (which seems to move) are continually in a state of resync.

Any ideas appreciated, including any ways to easily resync all folders in a sane way. I have the account set for all to sync but it seems like I either have to visit the ones out of sync or select them as part of a compact operation. Very time consuming and now I'm headed back to the workweek where I need to be able to use this account.

I've checked the physical disk the local folders reside on and it's not reporting any issues (plus I have other things on that disk that are having no issues).

Hello, I'm trying to archive old gmail messages to free up storage space. On my server settings, under "Message Archives", it says to keep messages in "Archives" folder on Local Folders. However, when I archive messages they remain on the server.

Interestingly, there are two inboxes listed under the gmail account: an "Inbox" and an "All Mail" folder. The archived messages do not appear in the "Inbox" folder on Thundebird, but they seem to be re-downloaded into the "All Mail" folder.

Am I missing a step to get Thunderbird to delete the old messages?

Many thanks! This is version 91.11.0 on Linux.

Hi, I have noticed this behavior for a while now and it is becoming bothersome now. It seems to happen ONLY upon initial visit to a site, any site. Once the site loads completely, any links from there loads without the black screen.

Of course, I have searched and tried the known remedies: 1) graphics driver. Chrome, Konqueror and other browsers do not exhibit this behavior. 2) FF add-on's disabled. No permanent difference. 3) Hardware acceleration disabled. No permanent difference.

I'm running 103.0.2 (64-bit) on: Operating System: Kubuntu 22.04 KDE Plasma Version: 5.24.4 KDE Frameworks Version: 5.92.0 Qt Version: 5.15.3 Kernel Version: 5.17.5-051705-generic (64-bit) Graphics Platform: X11 Processors: 8 × Intel® Core™ i7-6700 CPU @ 3.40GHz Memory: 23.4 GiB of RAM Graphics Processor: llvmpipe

This is not a deal breaker but should be addressed to make FF more perfect! Best... Hong Son

Wasted a whole bunch of time when Firefox decided to install an update (I had previously downloaded) automatically. I did not touch my machine. A dialog came up and before I could read it and choose to cancel, the installation began. Took at least 16 minutes. I had checked "check for updates but let me choose to install", but it didn't give me a chance to decline. According to the web, the suggestion is choose "Never check for updates", but that choice is not there. I don't want ANY kind of auto update or auto install. Please don't suggest I program anything, thanks.

I used to be able to keep the email send to list reasonable by deleting this file and it automatically recreated the next time I opened Thunderbird. Now the file is not there..

When I attempt to download a large file, for example this one, Firefox often:

  1. consumes my entire available Internet bandwidth, leaving other applications and devices unable to connect to the Internet, or even to other devices on my LAN.
  2. hangs, i.e. the download doesn't show any progress in the Firefox UI

When I attempt to cancel the download, Firefox does not react. Even if I close Firefox, the download continues to absorb the entire available network capacity. The PC (runniong Windows 10 21H2) can not be shut down normally; I can only stop the process by pressing and holding the PC's power button to effect a hard shutdown. When I restart the PC and restart Firefox, Firefox automatically attempts to resume the failed download, with the same results described above. How can I prevent Firefox from hogging all available network capacity for downloads? How can I terminate hung downloads in a more elegant manner? How can I prevent Firefox from attempting to resume failed downloads the next time I start it? I am currently using Firefox 103.0.2. AFAIK, this is also the latest version at this time.
