When I open a new tab, I'd like Firefox to show pages that I've saved to Pocket.

I have selected Settings >> Home >> Firefox Home Content >> Recent Activity >> "Pages Saved to Pocket".

This worked pretty well! So well that I upgraded to Pocket premium! Unfortunately, I no longer see any of the pages I've saved to pocket.

How can I get my saved pages back? Thanks!

(I suspect that feature of web browsers was created to make navigating quicker while using the touch pad. My touch pad is disabled whenever a mouse is connected to the computer so that feature of web browsers isn't only not needed but is very annoying. Please tell my how to turn that feature off. Bob

Finally looking into this again. It's a problem I've been tolerating for quite some time but I finally want to get this fixed. For a while now, TB has had this annoying habit that sometimes when I delete or move a message or series of messages to another folder they seem to go but then immediately reappear. I'm using IMAP to my own Postfix email server. The strange thing is that if I perform the operation (delete or move)again it works successfully this time. So it's kinda hard to reproduce reliably to debug this.

I was asked to log IMAP activity which I'd turned on.

While often the messages just reappear I also, on occasion, see the following popup

I looked at syslog on my server and didn't see anything that indicated what exactly the error was. I'll try to monitor more closely now and report back any additional information.

When I tried to access Outlook from my normal email programme (Thunderbird 91.11.0), yesterday & today, I get the message "Login to server outlook.office365.com with username rwf@rwfern.uk failed."

What can I do, please?

Points:

1. I've just renewed my domain-name registrations. My ISP doesn't think that would affect anything.

2. It happens on both my macOS machines (iMac & MacBook).

3. Gmail (from Thunderbird) on both machines works as normal.

4. It happens in 2 venues (at home, and in a café), with (obviously) separate wi-fi connections.

5. Logging in to Outlook via Firefox, with same id & password works normally.

6. The mail software on my iPhone has no trouble connecting.

My ISP thinks that, if accessing Office/Outlook via Firefox works normally, then the problem must be with my Thunderbird settings. I've attached screenshots with these in.

My ISP doesn't 'know' Thunderbird, but is very willing to answer any questions, if that would help you.

All good wishes,

Roger Fern.

Greetings, I've checked a few articles in Firefox to help with my question, but none of them are helping. (Here's the main article: http://example.com.) Here's the situation. Say I go to a website's Contact page and click the button to contact someone, a window appears and asks me what app I want to use to open the email. Gmail is my default email, and Firefox is my default browser, and I use Windows 10. When I open the window of options (see attached screenshot) to open the email, and I then click "Choose Other Application" (other than Firefox), I don't see the Gmail app anywhere. I then followed the directions in that link above to check my Windows settings, per its suggestion, which I did ... but in those settings, too, I got to a point where the directions no longer matched what I'm seeing on my screen. I didn't see the Gmail app anywhere. Could you let me know in simple layperson's terms how to open Gmail links in Firefox? I don't have a PhD in computer science, so please keep it very simple. Thanks in advance! Best wishes, Bill

I have been using firefox on ubuntu 22 for more than a month and everything was working fine untill 4 days earlier when i first got error relating to security certificate issue and data hijacking. But i have been using same sites earlier too without any issue. Also those sites are just articles on site without any personal information. From last 2 days i am also getting redirecting issues. First site to redirect to during google search is bestbonusprize.life then if i disable adblocker it just keep redirecting. I don't have any issue accessing same site in google chrome. I just have firefox installed till 4 days earlier, but when i start getting issues i installed chrome to test if i am getting same issue but all work good in chrome. One of the main change from earlier is i was in different location using different wifi provider. It could be one of the issue but i am not sure as other people using same wifi don't have much issues. Plus things work fine in chrome. I tried using anti-malware but malwarebyte is only available for window and i don't know any thing about anti-virus and malware removal for ubuntu as never needed it. Please guide me for securing my firefox browser. Regards.

I noticed Thunderbird had not downloaded any new emails since May when I changed my yahoo password. The TB yahoo popup wouldn't take my current password, so I had to create a new yahoo password. I deleted the passwords stored in TB. When I could log back in to yahoo from TB, all the old folders were gone and the inbox only showed emails back to April 2022. The profile folder (same name now as it was) used to be 28 GB, now it is about 5 GB. I selected the repair folder option, but all it did was reload emails back to April. I used to have about 8 years worth of emails in TB. Are all the previously downloaded e-mails lost forever? Is there a way for TB to tell yahoo to download all the e-mails on the server prior to April?

I am using the latest Firefox version 102.0 and I have igHome set as my home page. Yesterday the Google Calendar Gadget would no longer display the calendar but would display this message:

Firefox Can’t Open This Page To protect your security, accountsgooglecom 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.

If I click on the “Open Site in New Window” button it does open the calendar. (See attached screenshot.) I have tried login out and back into igHome and my Google account but it doesn’t fix the issue. This is happening on both my laptop and desktop computers running Windows 10 Home. All Windows updates are up to date. I opened Firefox in Troubleshooting Mode and the calendar still does not show. When I use the Google Chrome browser with the same igHome home page the Calendar works fine. Is this something Firefox can fix, or do I need to contact Google?

Migrating From Snap To Flatpak On Ubuntu

I only used snap package manager for my Ubuntu TB installation because the apt equivalent was an older version than that on my previous Windows 10 TB.

Now it seems to me that flatpak may be a more memory-efficient and secure way to enable each application to have its own set of dependencies - sometimes using a different version of a dependency used by other applications - without unnecessary duplication/storage bloat and consequentially faster wearing out of SDD drives.

At present my snap TB is on version 91.11.0, as is the current flatpak version of TB.

I had a lot of trouble migrating TB from Windows 10 to snap on Ubuntu. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1309930 I lost a share of stuff and I don't want the same thing to happen again.

So is there a secure, tried and tested procedure for a TB migration from snap to flatpak ?
