Youtube audio is extremely slow, I reckon at 10%, but the video is fine and can be sped up or down. The problem persists even in troubleshooting mode, after cache clearing, hardware acceleration turned off, enabled DRM and widevine, driver updates, in private mode or not, logged in or not, firefox restarts, computer restarts.

But Youtube plays fine in Chrome and Edge.

I dont think I didnt anything drastically different, or updated win10 or firefox, or messed with anything. It was working fine a day ago.

Is there any way to reset something?

Hi,

On this site:

https://www.opensubtitles.org/en/search/sublanguageid-eng/idmovie-1380901

selecting a sub and trying to download gives "The page is not redirecting properly"

I am using Firefox Developer Edition 127 b07, and that happens also in safe mode.

It used to work not too long ago with FF, and it works with Chrome latest.

I am using Thunderbird 115.11.1 (32-bit) to manage 6 different email accounts for work and personal. I would like to be able to organize "Collected Addresses" according to the account they were used from.

Eg. I want each account to have it's own unique Collected Addresses address book Collected Addresses - Account 1 Collected Addresses - Account 2 Collected Addresses - Account 3 Collected Addresses - Account 4 Collected Addresses - Account 5 Collected Addresses - Account 6

I've looked online and there are some instructions, but they reference settings that I cannot find. Is there a way to do this?

TIA

I have been using firefox for years. My current version is 126.0.1 (64 bit). Within the last couple of months(?) I am unable to reach a website that I use on a semi-regular basis axisgis.com/AshbyMA The problem exists on 3 different devices, an HP laptop running win 10, an older desktop running win 10, and an older mac desktop running Catalina 10.15.7 which apple says is up to date. If I use Safari on the mac the website works perfectly. If I use private browsing on the laptop the website works perfectly. If I use private browsing on the desktop the website works perfectly. On the laptop I ran the firefox in troubleshoot mode and the website still would not work. I cleared the cache on the laptop and the website still won't work. Since the problem occurs on 3 different devices that are not synced to each other I can't believe it is a cookie problem. Rebooting devices makes no difference. I rebooted the Comcast modem and the house router, no change.

Any ideas would be welcome.

Thanks, mike

Has anything changed from the time that article was posted? I'd like to use maildir, it seems to me a more rational way to store e-mails (and it's also better to make incremental backups).

Hi 😊 I’m trying to resolve my sisters’ issue with Thunderbird, and I know nothing about Thunderbird. When I open Thunderbird, I have an issue in that the Archive folder is there but no content is shown

Yet if I go to where the files are they seem to be there. They were working but I accidentally deleted the folder and out of the trash folder as well. If I go into “C:\Users\Sue\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Archives.sbd” where the emails and folders are, they seem to be there but not showing in Thunderbird when I click on any folder in Archive and are appear top be very small, i.e. empty.

I have screen shots if you require but thought not appropriate at this stage.

115.05 when I started.

I typically open Thunderbird about once a month, download my emails from a hosted website, do some clean up, write some emails, close Thunderbird, and do the same about a month later.

Today I opened Thunderbird, saw that it was downloading around 400 emails in the lower left corner, and waited patiently, as per usual. When "done", however, none of them showed up in the main window. The latest email did not change, was still from around a month ago. When I ask Thunderbird to Get Messages it says there are no new emails to download.

I restarted Thunderbird several times, no change.

I then upgraded to 115.10, hoping this might fix the issue, but it has not.

Since restarting Thunderbird, 2 new emails have come in and are showing correctly, but none of the initial 400 emails "downloaded" today are showing anywhere.

I repaired the Inbox folder (right click > Properties > Repair Folder), no help. I renamed the "Inbox.msf" file and had Thunderbird rebuild it, no help. I renamed the "global-messages-db.sqlite" file and had Thunderbird rebuild it, no help. View Ignored Threads does not help. View > Threads > All is selected. Emails are not in the Trash folder, or any other folder.

All of the initial batch of 400 emails - and the emails I had previously opened - just disappeared.

Opening up the Inbox MBOX file directly, I can see that these 400 emails were never actually downloaded into this file. Not sure what happened.

Opening up my remote email host, I can see that those 400 emails are still there, to the exact point when I last closed Thunderbird.

Asking Thunderbird to download new messages does not download these remote emails.

How do I reset Thunderbird to start the process over and re-download these emails again? Part of TB seems to think it's already downloaded these emails, while another part of TB never actually did.

Does anyone have any idea what to do here?

My wife & I have the same PCs running Windows 10 & Thunderbird 115.11.0 (32bit).

We have a hosted web-site that also supports email, and we each have an email account (eg neddy@goon.com.au & minnie@goon.com.au). I've checked that both our POP server configurations are identical but despite that about once a week minnie@goon.com.au receives a warning to add security exception but neddy doesn't. This started happening two weeks ago after a years error free running.

The host has checked that goon.com.au has a valid SSL certificate, so what could be causing the discrepancy and how do I set about fixing it please?

Hey there, long story short - nowadays it's crucial to support those who WFH, and most people use G Suit for company work. I personally have a few daily calls via Google Meet and having the TAB sharing feature available is highly appreciated. I know this was requested a lot, but this is a real dealbreaker for many people.

Hey y'all, I just closed Firefox and tried to open in up again a few minutes later. The icon in my taskbar threw an error saying it couldn't find the executable. I typed Firefox into the run dialog and FF came up but has no icons on the home screen, zeroed out my bookmarks bar below the URL field and deleted all my bookmarks (100s).

I went into the User/../../Mozilla folder system and found a folder called bookmarksBackup or something similar. It was completely empty.

Any chance these were saved somewhere else as well?
