Hi guys. I'm on a Lenovo laptop, using Windows 11. Was NOT experiencing this issue (or any other issues) till today. That is, I've been able to download PDFs attached to Yahoo email for years, including recently (till today).

Trying to get Firefox to be DEFAULT instead of MS Edge, I changed some 'Apps associated with File Types', selecting Firefox as default for all file types that seemed appropriate, BUT, this issue then began.

Feeling I went too far, and should go step at a time, I reset All File Type settings back to default (MS recommended settings). Still can't open attached PDFs. I tried an Excel attachment and it opened fine.

Error I get is: "Firefox Can’t Open This Page To protect your security, dl-mail.ymail.com will not allow Firefox to display the page if another site has embedded it. To see this page, you need to open it in a new window."

The emails I used to recreate the error, were sending an email to myself, and attaching a PDF.

Other things I tried: I used Firefox with gmail email and the PDF attachment downloaded fine. I used MS Edge with Yahoo email and PDF attachment downloaded fine. Also, btw, CAN view a PDF attachment with Yahoo email. Just now download.

I CAN "open it in a new window" as the error suggests, than print to PDF, but don't want to live the rest of my life doing that.

Thanks in advance for any help that can be offered!!

Win 10, Developer Edition 103.0b2

This update caused everything to increase in size. Tabs & toolbars are much bigger now. Toolbar and bookmarks toolbar used to fit in the window with no overflow, now both have a lot of items in overflow.

Sites that used to fit at 100% zoom now have to be reduced to 80% or 67% to fit on-screen.

Just wondering what could cause this behavior? Settings?

Note: Browser window is fully maximized and no other program on my Win10 box has this issue.

Is there a miniature, stripped version of Firefox that runs when some utilities update?

This is so bizarre because it just started happening today.

Basically, I can't dismiss this one notification you see below. I can click on Dismiss or Dismiss All a hundred times and nothing happens.

I read on a thread from last year that another guy was having the same problem but he emphasized that it only happens with Zoom events. This reminder is a Zoom event so I wonder if it's related?

Any help would be appreciated!

I had set up a userContent.css file in the past to pull up and fetch an image on my computer to display as a background on the homepage. It worked and did it's job until recently, when I had recently relocated a lot of my files around on my computer. I have redirected everything to where I want it to look, including the userContent.css file to the new location for the image I want as the background. Firefox loads the .css file correctly, and recognizes the file existing, but it won't load the image itself for some odd reason. It states it "may not load or link the file" because of a security error, and thus, can't load the image. I never had to deal with this before. How can I get Firefox to be able to load my image like I want it to? I have screenshots that I can provide, but this site doesn't want to upload them at the moment.

This question has to do with logging into web sites with an email and a password. Firefox 101.0.1 (64-bit). Windows 10.

On many sites, when I click in the email field, a drop down list of email addresses appears from which I can make a selection using the mouse or up/down arrow keys. Some web sites have as few as two email addresses in the drop down list, others have many more. I recall that one site has about fifteen email addresses in the drop down list.

How can I remove a non-applicable email address from the drop down list?

How can I clear the drop down list of all email addresses?

Thanks.

I've just had my browsing interrupted with this recommendation to install an extension: https://torrent-protection.com/download-now/

I was viewing this page: https://www.eurogamer.net/with-the-new-ps-plus-premium-and-extra-sony-opts-for-the-car-boot-sale-approach-to-catalogue-gaming

I was taken out of the page without pressing anything and taken to this recommendation. In particular, it appears like an official Firefox message and security recommendation, with Firefox suggesting I should install this extension for my security. Sadly I don't have a screenshot but it's happened twice this morning already.

Is this really Firefox endorsed? Or are they pushing their extension with fake credentials? How is the page viewing interrupted this way and diverted automatically to another webpage?

I am migrating to a new machine running Windows 11 (from old one with Windows 10) and have installed Thunderbird and Chrome as default apps. The only thing that is not working is clicking on a hyperlink in a message. I have read the article addressing this issue and tried all the suggested fixes. None work. When I click on a hyperlink in a message body, it just ignores me. If I right click on the link and choose open in browser from the pop-up, it ignores me. It does not matter what the type of link is. If it is a PDF, it does not open in the browser despite that being the default action for PDFs. More importantly, if it is just a link in a message (e.g., tracking info from Amazon), it does not do anything. I have looked at the setups on both machines and they seem identical. But what works under Windows 10 is not working under Windows 11. (As a computer scientist, I understand that there are a lot of variables in play here.)

I would appreciate any suggestions on how to get past this. Copy and paste is not the end of the world, but I would expect more consistent behavior.

However I cannot access my old profile and all my folders no longer show up. I have searched and found the folder that I think has all my folders but cannot bring them up in Thunderbird.

TB 91.7.0 (64-bit I used to send/rcv gmail no problm, started having issues ~ Oct 2021 I then setup a 3rd party app password in gmail account for thunderbird. That allowed me to Send Gmails, but, not receive it kept asking for password. Then I read to use OAuth2 and saw that Google will no longer allow 3rd party app passwords, so i deleted it in google, and set both Imap.gmail.com and smpt.gmail.com to use OAuth2 (both set for SSL/TSL). I did this just for smpt first when the 3rd party app password was still enabled, i could recv but, when i went to send, it would ask for password, i enter it, then it would sent msg to my cell phone to Allow thunderbird, i would press Allow on my phone, and Thunderbird would come up with Sending message.. with the progress marked all way to end BUT, it will never complete sending.... I have to hit cancel it then shows Failed message unable to authenticate. After I deleted the 3rd party app password in gmail settings, now when i start thunderbird or try to receive emails, it goes through the same authorization process with my phone, but, then never downloads any new emails. I have spend HOURS on this.. extremely frustrated (I have been forced to us ms mail which i really don't like, i am too used to thunderbird (although I wished thunderbird had check boxes on emails to select via checkboxes for delete, or moving, etc)

Getting a popup now every time Thunderbird tries to sign into gmail. It says "Sign in with your Google Account" but nothing works when I put in my id or email. There's no response. T-bird is set up properly and uses oauth2; this just began happening. Less secure apps is on but that's being stopped, so looks like I won't be able to use gmail anymore.

I tried deleting my gmail a/c and now I can't create one. I can't get past that "credentials needed" popup.

How can I get T-bird to work with gmail?

I'm new to thunderbird and, when I first added my aol mail account as IMAP, I deleted (thru thunderbird) what I thought were random, extra folders that appeared under all the other standard thunderbird folders - these were not folders I created, but rather ones I assume aol added for every account. All were removed from the aol mail site save an "Archive" folder which does not allow me to delete it even though it is under the folders section.

I didn't think anything of it at the time, but now, a "Draft" and an "Archive" folder are spawning in the trash section for my aol mail account on thunderbird and I cannot for the life of me get it to stop/move them/etc. These are not the standard "Drafts" and "Archives" folders of thunderbird fyi, but aol's Drafts section (the one on the server has an s even though the folder in thunderbird does not) and Archive folder (which I mentioned above). If I save anything to the standard thunderbird folders, a "Drafts" and "Archives" folder appear in the folder section in aol mail.

I have my settings set to use the standard thunderbird folders, but the ones from aol keep spawning in the trash every restart no matter what I try. I know it's just copying things over or whatever and I don't mind the folders appearing, but how the hell do I get them out of the trash?? I've gone so far as to completely uninstall (including the appdata folder) and reinstall thunderbird, but that didn't change anything. Are there some other settings or something somewhere that I missed? They're not appearing in the trash on the aol mail site, so I'm assuming this is something wrong on thunderbird's end and is messed up because I deleting those original folders. Is there any way to fix this?
