Hi there, I wonder if you can help.

I have tried everything that has been advised on the community chat, but still can't receive any emails to Thunderbird. It was working and then it suddenly stopped... I can send on Thunderbird. I can send and receive on my phone and on the web.

I have done the following:

  • Made sure "allow less secure... is on" CHECK
  • Updated Thunderbird CHECK
  • Got rid of large emails CHECK
  • Changed from pop to Imac (?) COULDN'T DO
  • Changed to OAuth2 password DIDN'T WORK
  • Restarted CHECK

It's been a couple of days now and still not working, any advise would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks, Rachel

Hello.

I'm having some issues after the last update (automatic updates is activated).

The Send Mail button is greyed out. The address book is completely empty. Additionally some smaller details like using Tab to jump from the "To:" field into the subject is not working anymore.

Can somebody help? I tried deactivating all add ons with no success.

Setup: Windows 8.1 Thunderbird 78.2.2

Best regards

Please note that my question is not about preserving preferences. I've searched and found many Q&A threads on preference preservation, but I don't think that is my problem or issue.

What I'd like to do is to make some Ubuntu desktop menu shortcuts to launch specific web-based apps, in individual windows (I suppose separate instances and new-window) of specific size, with a given specific URL, hopefully with it's own icon, sort-of replacement of desktop apps. So in the Desktop menu I should be able to see 'Google Meet' (for instance) as an application with it's own icon, but clicking it launches Firefox with Google Meet's URL, and a window that is just 800x600 in size.

However, when I try to launch windows on Ubuntu MATE (also tried Lubuntu, and standard Ubuntu... all 20.04), firefox seems to ignore --window-size command line parameter, and all new windows are of exactly same size, which is the default size apparently, ignoring the command-line parameter. What gives ? How can I do what I am trying to as explained above (from firefox standpoint... I know how to create Ubuntu .desktop file etc.).

cheers, B

After removing and downloading Firefox again recently, I have begun to run into characters not displaying on websites. Nearly every site is subject to this issue, where characters display as little boxes with numbers inside them. After looking around, I have verified that I am allowing sites to specify their own font, and that I don't have any fonts blocked under about:config. I am running Firefox 80.0.1 on Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS.

This is a silly problem, every youtubers nightmare I'm sure. I can't like or subscribe on Youtube via Firefox. I'm getting "Your session has expired." whenever I try to do either. I can sucessfully do both on a different browser on the same machine and other machines with this browser do not have this issue. I am running Windows 10. I have tried starting firefox in safe mode, refreshing firefox, deleting all cached content and cookies, renaming the cookies.sqlite file to cookies.sqlite.old and still no results. I've tried disabling every extension that I have and still nothing. I've exhausted my internet search. Is there anything else I might be missing?

Again, I'm logged in to youtube while this happens, clicking on the "sign in" only brings me to the channel page when trying to subscribe and gives me the same message when clicking it again. Also, can't add videos to playlists.

I want to use a local html file as my new tab page. Currently there is no easy way to do this as far as I can tell.

Firefox at some point has removed the in-built option to set the new tab as a local file. Setting the home page as a local file is possible. But setting the new tab as either home (note, not 'Firefox Home') or explicitly the local file is not an option (see attached image).

Previous forum posts point toward New Tab Override extension. However, in recent releases, add-ons cannot offer a work around as Firefox no longer allows add-ons to access local files. In the image attached, New Tab Override extension shows that it cannot use a local file as the new tab. It can however take a file and store it somewhere it has control over. This means every time I edit the local file, I need to manually re-upload this to the extension in each instance of Firefox. It is no longer a good option.

I am sure I used this feature not too long ago and it feels like a very simple thing. I am sure I must have missed some setting or option. Any help achieving this would be greatly appreciated.

now i'm writing the download pdf file function to support ios device. But for iPhone/iPad, after I click download and call the download function, the page will be directed to a messey code page. I will attach the screenshot in attachment.

But for desktop and android, all browsers works fine. Only the ios firefox is having this issue.

some of the javascript code are here:

     const blob = new Blob([downloadFileBolb], { type: 'application/octet-stream' });
     if (window.navigator.msSaveBlob) { // For IE only
       window.navigator.msSaveOrOpenBlob(blob, 'file name')
     } else {
       const url = (window.URL || window.webkitURL).createObjectURL(blob);
       const tempLink = document.createElement('a');
       tempLink.style.display = 'none';
       tempLink.href = url;
       tempLink.download = 'file name';
       tempLink.target = '_blank';
       document.body.appendChild(tempLink);

Hi there,

I'm currently running macOS 10.15.6 and Firefox 80.0.1.

I've not been able to get the Home and End keys on my keyboard to jump to the beginning and end of the URL inside the address bar for a while now. I know on macOS I can hit command+left and command+right to achieve the same behaviour. But so many sites (not this one; but Google Docs, reddit, etc) support the Home and End key behaviours.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to report bugs / feature requests, but maybe the community knows how I can even mimic this behaviour with extensions.

Thanks for reading!
