Moving from Windows to Linux and in the process moving from Chrome to Firefox. In Linux, there seems to be an issue where Firefox isn't recognizing that I have installed Chrome. No problem, I went into Windows to do the move instead. But since the data isn't saved and you have to have an instance of Firefox running (?) to actually sync, I decided to download Firefox on my iPhone, get my passwords from Chrome, then sync to my iPhone, boot back to Linux, then sync on Linux with the data on my iPhone, and somehow in the process locked myself out of logging into Firefox on my iPhone due to how many times I've had to log in to Firefox to figure out this convoluted and broken process. People are wanting to switch to Firefox due to ad blocking support, and this is a massive barrier to entry. Can we just fix importing from a csv file?

I'm getting this message once a day. This started sometime after the update to version 102, and I've had to download / upgrade for the last couple of minor updates. Any assistance would be welcome so automatic updates would start again. These messages pop up even when there is no new release available and I'm at the current release.

Personal PC specs include: OS Name & Version Microsoft Windows 11 Home 10.0.22000 Build 22000

I do use AVG Internet Security as well as NordVPN.

Screenshots are from a release back to show that I was on the current release (my Thunderbird settings are on automatic update) yet was being prompted to get a new release.

I've tried to search and found some other posts about this, but not a ton... leading me to believe there is something wrong.

Issue: Fonts on some sites are too heavy/bold (vs appearing correctly on Chrome/Chromium browsers) Environment: Windows 10 or 11, Firefox stable (currently 105.0.1) Example site: https://www.subaruoutback.org (this is not the only one, just an example) Workaround(s): I can do one of two things... I can either enforce browser fonts globally, which fixes the issue but then also break some sites in other ways or I can use an add-on to let me selectively enforce browser fonts as needed (which is what I am doing).

Screenshots attached, this is my experience on multiple PCs (Windows 10 and 11). One image is from Firefox, one is from Chrome.

On some sites, it isn't a huge deal... maybe just looks bad but is functionally fine. On some sites the issue is more impactful and actually creates readability issues.

Of course I can continue to work around the issue, but ideally I would like to fix it.

I did read that there are some changes site owners can make for font handling, but obviously requesting that sort of thing isn't realistic in a general sense.

Thank you!

Copied from Fifefox:

Youtube switched to separate audio/video streaming technology for higher quality formats and no longer provides direct 720p (Since 24 September 2018)/1080p/mp3 streams. Converting these streams to downloadable formats for you needs powerful server infrastructure, therefore 1080p/mp3 downloading has been limited to PRO users. Read more at - https://videodroid.org/pro_upgrade.html. FREE users can download all formats in CACHE where some PRO users fetched the video/audio in past 24 hours, to test the feature you can try downloading popular videos.

If this is the case WHY should I use Firefox? There are other browsers!!!

ThunderBird stopped being able to pick up email from our pop3 server.

The Error console shows:

mailnews.pop3.1: SecurityError: a SecurityCertificate error occurred Pop3Client.jsm:336:18

This doesn't give me a hint as to the problem is with the security certificate. It hasn't changed recently and worked yesterday.

The cert is self-signed and expires in a few days. Previously (not recently) I had to do a variety of things to make Thunderbird happy with it.

Today I received from Ubuntu's repo the update to Thunderbird 102.2.2.

I have linked Thunderbird with my Nextcloud instance https://docs.nextcloud.com/server/19/user_manual/pim/sync_thunderbird.html

this is done by using 2 addons: - https://addons.thunderbird.net/en/thunderbird/addon/tbsync/ - https://addons.thunderbird.net/en/thunderbird/addon/dav-4-tbsync/

unfortunately they are both incompatible with Thunderbird 102 therefore automatically disabled.

How can I use Thunberbird 102 with Nexcloud?

Previously I raised a question where I had a regular message from TB about failure to update and advising me to go to website to download 91.10.0 and then run it to install.

I though I had solved it but....

Thunderbird has automatically updated itself to 102.0.2 (64 bit) without my intervention - despite the release notes saying it is only offered as a direct download and not an upgrade. It has since updated itself to currently 102.0.3 However, TB reminds me every day with a message stating that it cannot do an update and wants me to visit the TB site and download. I am on the release update channel.

I assume some software switch is stuck and saying that there is an update when there isn't and posting the reminder. Is there some way of clearing this? I have cleaned the cache several times and clean installed the previous [91.10 version?] twice.

Thunderbird is by far the best email app on the market....and the fact that it is offered free of charge is amazing. No one else comes even close to all the features and how sophisticated the program is.

I have come upon a feature in version 102, that I used for years when sending out an email to 85 individual email addresses using Bcc.

Here is the process I used to use....

1. Complete an email, add subject and select Bcc. 2. Go to Address Book, where I have a Personal Address Book and a sub address book for 85 members of my team titled " Members". 3. I select the "Members" List, select "Display Name" and "Email Addresses". 4. I go to "Edit" and select "Select" and "All". This highlights all 85 of the Member Email Addresses. 5. I use to be able to select any address of the highlighted emails and move them over to the Bcc Area. 6. This is where things go bad. 102 puts everything in the Bcc area including the title of the list and many other non-email addresses. 7. When hitting "Send", the error message comes up that this cannot be sent and shows all the non-email words including the title of the address book. This did NOT happen in the previous version of your very wonderful app.

What am I doing wrong or what can be done to avoid this problem...?

I have filters I made before, and those also say 'No available folders'

I've attached screenshots of the problems.

Why are my folders not being seen?
