Neither my wife nor I can sign in to our G-mail accounts through Firefox on this computer. We have no problem signing in with either account through another computer. When clicking "Sign in," we get a page related to cache and cookies.

I have gone through the steps to delete "cache & cookies" for MY gmail account with no change in behavior. (My wife did not want me to remove hers because she believes (probably correctly) that her password memory on the PC would be erased!

I suspect we'll have to remove ALL google info from this computer, but don't know how to go about it. The only "App" listed with a google name is Google Chrome.

Suggestions? Remove and reinstall Firefox? Ditto Chrome? (Running Firefox 94. something.) I'd like to see her stick with Firefox, but this is a real barrier.

Whenever I click the PiP floating icon on video-hosting sites such as YouTube, the PiP window pops up but does not stay on top. It is immediately hidden by other windows. I always need to open the window menu and enable "Always on Top". Shouldn't this be enabled by default? Is there anything I can do to make it enable by default?

For reference, I'm using GNOME 41.1 on Manjaro Linux.

I have an error popup (see attached picture) each time I connect to the thunderbird agenda, and every 15 minutes if I stay logged in a longer time . I do not achieve to get rid of this message related to a deleted item in the agenda, as it seems the agenda in thunderbird wants to synchronise with the the agenda in gmail agenda where the data are stored. I do not have the same issue when using my iphone which is also synchronising the internal agenda with the gmail agenda. How can I get rid of this issue ? Thanks for helping Andreas Latz

www.google.com.784135765499538.windows-display-service.com

The website which is given above always opens up whenever I start up my pc

on startup Firefox window opens up with two tabs first- Session restore second- is the website which is given above

and few more things that i noticed are that > Firefox window is not signed in with my Firefox account (But I have signed it in) > No Firefox Add-Ons are available(I mean they are not started) > window which opens on startup is like its new window with no customization that I have made in Firefox.

Above given website looks suspicious to me, I tried refreshing Firefox and using website blocker and other ways that I could find on web.

sorry I cannot provide troubleshooting information as I have uninstalled Firefox

As the subject describes, installing Bing Wallpaper causes the vanishment of icons of the six default search engines in my region (China Mainland), i.e. Baidu, Wikipedia (actually the icon of Wikipedia is still there), Bing, Google, Amazon and DuckDuckGo, but these search engines themselves are still usable though. It is probably caused because I chose the choice that setting Bing as my default search engine of all browsers and the application (Bing Wallpaper) reset all those engines. I have tried removing these engines from my settings list then adding them back, but the icons are still invisible. I have not tried to uninstall and reinstall my Firefox.

My Firefox version: 94.0.2 My OS version: Windows 7 6.1.7601, Service Pack 1

Hello, i've recently made the switch from Chrome to Firefox. However, I am someone who enjoys playing games in their browser. And it occured to me, that firefox seemingly lags and stutters whenever i try to play a game.

The two games i have tested are Zombs Royale and Wormax IO. These are two very minimalistic games with nothing much to them. The slowest computers can handle them...

I have a GTX 1080, with 12 gb of rams. I also tested on my laptop, which has unknown specs, but 4gb of ram.

Both devices performed worse then how they would perform in chromium based browsers. I wish to stick with firefox, as i hear security is a virtue with Mozilla, and Chrome really just wants to steal your data.

I might add, that i did follow a couple steps to make my browser more secure, I didn't disable stuff like webgl, but i disabled a bunch of other settings, here is the video i followed:

https://youtu.be/xxWXLlfqNAo

I did install a few add-ons, such as Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin, HTTPS Everywhere, and nightTab(I had this on chrome, and without it i feel home sick.)

I am unsure why these problems occur, as far as i know, my computer should be able to handle this.

I cannot find any other questions related to this, and it is really odd to me. I should also mention, Firefox is also quite slow anyways, it just feels slower than chrome, so i'm unsure if it's an optimization issue or what, but this occurs on all of my computers.

I hope someone can help me thank you.

Hi there:

I am running Thunderbird on a Windows 10 machine. I have three email accounts on it; all are POP3 with Comcast as my ISP.

Over the past several months, I keep getting new message notifications in the associated junk folders for each account that all appear to be “repeat” messages that have landed before, and most are backdated to the same date—7/6/21 at 5:20 a.m. I also occasionally get other old-appearing spam dated from July, but predominantly the duplicates that appear all have that same above-mentioned date.

Because of my work, I can’t just let them sit there—I have to check multiple times daily to see if what is being flagged as junk is not really a work email that has been misfiled. So it is a time-waster when I have to go in and deal with these same junk emails that keep reappearing.

Today I tried to purge/clean this as best as I knew how. So far I have…

!) Deleted thousands of emails in all of the folders on all of the accounts that I no longer need.

2) Emptied all junk folders completely.

3) Updated Thunderbird to the latest version (91.3.2 32-bit).

4) Compacted all the Thunderbird folders in all accounts. (I should mention I didn’t know it was part of routine maintenance to do this, and had never done it before. I have now set the default to notify me to compact when the size reaches 20 MB.)

5) Cleared the Thunderbird cache.

6) Logged into the Comcast webmail for each account and made sure there were no spam messages sitting on the ISP’s server (none were visible in any of the accounts).

About an hour after I did all this, I got yet another 7/6/21 5:20 a.m. email in one of the junk folders, so apparently it didn’t work.

Thanks for taking the time to read. Any help appreciated!

My firefox browser has had issues displaying fonts when I have the "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" box checked. Its not all webpages as some have more bolded fonts, but it is more than one site.

I have scoured these forums trying to locate an answer, but for some reason the fonts are still so thin and unreadable. I have even erased all existence of firefox from my computer and reinstalled, but the issue still remains.

Hi, around Nov. 2020, TB started using VCF 4.0 to export address book contacts (beside csv, tsv and LDIF). Prior to that I happily exported to previous VCF formats (2.1 or 3.0). I need to go back to exporting to the VCF 2.1 format, in order to feed the exported file to some other legacy application that will only consider VCF 2.1. Is there a way to do so with TB 91.3 (under Linux) ? If so how ? Tx.
