The Washington Post has a feature on some articles called "Listen", where the article is read aloud on the device audio. I often use this because my vision is not as good as it used to be, and I can listen while I perform other tasks (e.g., cook). There is an example at this URL: https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2022/05/24/trump-picks-primaries-perdue-lose-dangerous/

Click "Listen" just above the first text of the article.

This is FF 100.0.2 on Windows 10 21H2 build 19044.1706

I do use the Malwarebytes add-on, but it doesn't work even when I disable it and the FF tracking protection is turned off.

It does work in both Edge and Chrome, with Malwarebytes enabled.

This is very disappointing ...

On this particular website; https://globe.adsbexchange.com/?SiteLat=28.590775&SiteLon=-81.281180

I am not able to use the mouse scroll wheel to scroll.

The only way for me to move the map up or down, is by moving the pointer all the way to the right of the page, placing the cursor over the scroll bar, then use the scroll wheel.

This only happens with Firefox, I just installed it today and am wondering if there's a setting I'm missing.

I am a long time user of T-bird now on version 91.9.1 (32-bit) using Win 10, home. I use T-bird as a client for my gmail.

My Tbird and email work fine but it does not "get messages" when I click. I have Account Settings/Server Settings set to "check for new messages every 10 minutes" but sometimes it can be hours before it queries the server. I have found that if I exit T-bird and re-open twice, it contacts the server and pulls down the pending email. Not once; it has to be twice. Most of it comes in through gand when it pulls down messages seems to be random.

while I was running a game on steam (Apex legends), and Firefox on my other screen, I was using too much memory, so the steam game and Firefox crashed. The game works fine, but Firefox won't load anything, Except for settings and the "About:" pages. When I try to visit a website it does not even attempt to load it, but the website does show up in my history. I've restarted Firefox, I have reinstalled Firefox, I have restarted my computer, I've cleared my cookies and cache history, but no websites will load and it will only run properly in troubleshooting mode. Oddly enough it won't load any websites but while I'm in the add-on manager I can download extensions.

Issue When opening a link from any other app, the Firefox switches to another virtual desktop if there's an existing Firefox window open.

Reproduce the Issue

  1. Set Firefox to default browser
  2. On Windows 10, open 2 virtual desktops. Use Task View button in Taskbar or use keyboard shortcut Win + Tab and then click on New Desktop. Now you should see 'Desktop 1' and 'Desktop 2', if Task View is opened again.
  3. On Desktop 2, open a new Firefox window.
  4. Switch back to Desktop 1 from Task View.
  5. Open any link (E.g.: https://www.mozilla.org/) from any other app like MS Word, MS Teams, etc.
  6. The virtual desktop would switch to Desktop 2 and open the link on exiting Firefox window.

Question Is there a way to open the link on same virtual desktop in a new window?

Improvement - If it already doesn't exist. Instead of opening the link in existing Firefox window on Desktop 2, open a new Firefox window on Desktop 1 to open the link.

I posted this last year and one other person chimed in with the same issues, but there were no responses, and the thread was archived. The other person suggested this problem had been around for a long time and he was using a different email system. I am reposting my observations below in the hope there may be a response or a fix.

I am running TBird 91.9 on a Win10 Pro 21H2 laptop and on a Win10 Pro 21H2 Surface GO. My issue is with my Compuserve/AOL email account which is my primary account. I send email on smtp.compuserve.com and receive on imap.aol.com. The issue is intermittent and usually multiple times per day when it occurs. When I am receiving email I get the message "Server imap.aol.com has disconnected. The server may have gone down or there may be a network problem." What does not make sense is that it may occur on one of my PCs and then I will check the other and it is fine. Or sometimes both give this message but then I can go to my iPhone which also receives from imap.aol.com and it has no problems.

The problem is most severe, almost always occurs when I ask to synch mailboxes to go offline. I ask TBird to download all messages before disconnecting and it successfully downloads all of my Compuserve mailboxes except the InBox and consistently gives the server off line warning.

Are there some TBird settings I can adjust to try to resolve this problem?

I do have Comcast and Gmail accounts that do not appear to have this issue but for historical reasons I would like to retain my AOL/Compuserve as my principal account.

Thank you.

I have asked this question before with a different subject title, and I am surprised there is no move to fix it. It is an annoyance that I expect effects many. So I am trying again with a new title and more explanation.

I have attached 3 images, showing a) how I have my folders layed out, b) viewing a group of my folders including my local folders, and c) the change in view after I rename one of the observed folders called "Amick." Instead of the view staying the same, so that I can see the name-changed folder in the folder structure, it reverts to the top of the structure showing all the favorites followed by the local folders.

What I would like to have happen is for there to be NO CHANGE in the view after I change the name of a folder or delete a folder, so that I can see what I have accomplished and continue working. As it is now, it is a big nuisance the time waster. Am I missing something that I can do to solve this problem, like some advanced setting?

Thank you.

Lost IMAP & SMTP connections between Thunderbird and Gmail

I have lost my IMAP and SMTP connections between Thunderbird v91.9.0 on Windows 10 and two Gmail accounts. One is a standard @gmail.com account and the other is an @my_domain account on Google Workspace. The experience is (almost) the same on both.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

When I try to read IMAP mail through Thunderbird, I'm presented with a pop-up (apparently from Google) to log into the gmail account with the email address pre-populated in the "Enter your email" field. Curiously, the email address for the Google Workspace account is broken into two parts with the user name left justified in the field, the @my_domain right justified and a gap between them. This is not true for the standard @gmail.com account, where the field is prepopulated with a left justified username@gmail.com. I click the "Next" button and an "Enter your password pop-up (apparently from Google) appears, into which I enter the password and click "Next".

Then I see a pop-up (apparently from Google) which says "Mozilla Thunderbird Email wants to access your Google Account", with "Allow" and "Cancel" buttons. I click "Allow" and often (but not always) see a small pop-up (apparently from Thunderbird) which says "Authentication failure while connecting to server imap.gmail.com".

The experience on the sending side through SMTP is similar. Upon clicking "Send" in Thunderbird, I'm presented with the same sequence of pop-ups (apparently from Google) to enter Google user name, password and permission to allow Thunderbird to access my email. Then there is a "sending message" pop-up (apparently from Thunderbird) which never completes.

Here are what I think are the relevant Thunderbird settings --

 Thunderbird settings for user@my_domain.com
   IMAP server: imap.gmail.com        
   IMAP port: 993

Hi!

I am not sure, if Mozilla is the reason, or Facebook is the reason. But since I can't get any help from FB, I'd like to check also here.

At first, I thought that the problem is on my side, since I am using ICC profiles and maybe I did something wrong. But It is not the problem on my side. I tried with an original jpg file, directly from my camera.

So, when I upload JPG to the Facebook, color of the image changes. This happens only if I publish it directly to my FB wall. If I go to FB "publishing tools" (on FB pages), everything works normal. If I upload the same photo via for example Chrome or Vivaldi, everything works, even if I upload directly to the FB wall.

So the problem occurs only If I upload from Mozilla (I have latest version 100) to the FB wall. Not via "publishing tools" on FB page. But problem is the same if I publish on my FB business page wall. So I assume that the problem is on FB side, that somehow renders files differently then via their Publishing tools. But I am allowing that Mozilla does something to them via the interface.

There must be some problem with Mozilla too, since all images work OK with Chrome or Vivaldi. So, something in relation of Mozilla - Facebook wall.

Currently I just use Chrome for uploading to FB, but I don't want that.

Not sure what to do now. FB does not reply, maybe Mozilla can help or check? I attached a sample photos, to see difference. Here is my Mozilla gfx.color profile too: https://i.ibb.co/CWRHWnh/6.jpg
