91.2.1 is very slow to open. Apple Mail is one click and open, whereas, Thunderbird does not respond so, you do two clicks and wait forever. It's like an old person struggling to get out of an armchair.

All the older versions were instant.

I have Brisbane Times (BT) as my home page on Firefox (which is my main browser). Since I installed the latest version of FF, I have to login manually (not automatically) to BT and having done so when I close an article it logs me out of BT. Firefox asks of if I want to make FF my home browser. I see that BT is one of my saved logins but this logging out etc is something that did not happen with the older version of FF. So please how do I permanently make FF my home browser and how do I get it to remember my login on BT when I flick between articles?

A few weeks ago I noticed that browsing in Firefox started being slower / sluggish.

It usually happens in YouTube or Twitch, but can also happen while scrolling with the mouse in wikipedia for example.

Some examples: -When having a Twitch stream open, the stream is running fine, but when clicking and moving the volume slider on the player, it does not move smoothly, and with some delay. -When doing a bit more heavy browsing, sometimes a tab might get "stuck", for example, the twitch stream might start to buffer for a few seconds. I notice the buffering is not related to any bandwidth related issue. -Firefox reacts slower (or with a small delay) while moving between tabs, clicking on links, etc. This usually happens only after a few hours after launching and browsing with Firefox.

Most happen after a while since I launch Firefox. And by a while I mean maybe 2-3 hours, and I don't have a ton of tabs open. It becomes slower much, much faster than it used to in the past.

Now, sometimes it can take Firefox up to 30 seconds to close completely, before I can launch it again.

I had the same Extensions installed before these issues started happening.

I tried uninstalling Firefox completely, then manually deleting the remaining profile folder, and do a fresh install of the latest Firefox version.

I checked the Windows Task Manager, and it shows (14) processes under Firefox. Is this normal? I tried unticking the "Use recommended performance settings" and restarting Firefox, but it still reached (14) processes after a couple of minutes.


I am not sure if it is related to Firefox itself. My computer is 5 years old but functioning properly...

I did not check if similar issues happen on a different browser. I am just so used to Firefox.

I had a few weird bug in Windows 10, but those existed for a good while now, and are not similar to the ones I experience while browsing with Firefox. I didn't notice anything similar while watching video files in a Media Player.

I am not sure if it can be hardware related. All seem to be working properly...


I want to figure out what is causing this. If you need any more information let me know.

A very serious bug in all Firefox browsers (it's been around for several years!). If you open multiple tabs (many tabs) in your browser, virtually all settings will not work, e.g. you won't open Options, Menus, various tasks, extensions, won't save your bookmarks, and many other problems. Although the browser opens a page and the Tab works! But everything else is NOT WORKING, even in Safe Mode or Troubleshooting Mode! I've reported this many times: No developer help!

Been using Thunderbird for years. Love it. Recently updated my desktop to Windows 11. Ever since then it has froze on startup and is very slow to open messages and occasionally freezes especially when opening a message with attached images.

I'm running a 7th gen i5 which Microsoft says isn't supported but every other program I use on the system works normally. Its just Thunderbird that has "fallen over".

I'd hate to have to give up using it but it is becoming very frustrating to use. For example. On booting the computer this morning, Thunderbird sat locked for just under 3 minutes.

Anyone else experienced this?

After creating a new Windows User account and switching back to original account, I lost ALL of my Quick Access Bookmarks! Then I did a Bookmark Restore using the most recent saved Bookmark file and I lost around 64,050 bookmarks!!! Now, the latest saved Bookmark file lists 5 items. This is a ridiculous and a very serious issue!!!

What is going on? I spend a lot of time getting important Bookmarks for research, and etc. How can I get all of my Bookmarks back? Apparently, I cannot get them all back. See attached file.

NOTE: I do NOT have a solution, the email with that comment was clicked on accidentally.

Note that when creating a brand new email in Thunderbird with the extra security step, it did NOT utilize OAuth. That is NOT what happens in the new security process.

If I re-create my existing email, will TB glitch? How do I migrate my existing POP folders to the "new" version of the account?

AOL security update by 7DEC21 requires creating a new account, best way to migrate email files? Notably their instructions don't mention this...

Anyone do this already? Any glitches? What's the easiest way to put your old account data into the new one?

How does TB handle the fact that you have two identical emails with separate accounts, differing only in that one-time password?

And how do you access that password entry popup that ONLY appears during account setup?

Recently my Google pixel phone got the Android 12 update. Since then I'm having issues with Firefox loading websites like Walmart, Sams club, Lowes. It seems to be serving the desktop versions and it is hard to navigate. The toggle switch for "Desktop Site" is off, so not sure why it is showing the desktop site. The attached images show how Walmart site shows in Chrome and Firefox. My firefox version is 94.1.2. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.

This problem has been happening for a long time now. When I'm playing a playlist in YouTube, and YouTube automatically select the next song in the playlist, the song stops and I get the message "Playback Paused because your account is being used in another location". This problem ONLY happens in Firefox and with this playlist scenario. If I select the song manually in the playlist, the song will play just fine. I've used other browsers Chrome and Microsoft Edge and DO NOT have the problem in there so I know my account isn't being used in another location. I've tried using multiple PC's/Laptops and both Windows 7 and 10 and the problem always only happens when using Firefox. I checked the About section in Firefox and it's showing Firefox is Up To Date.

Hey guys, why does the firefox android could not click a very simple small button? For example an "x" button (cancel) and etc. As long as it's small the firefox would not interact with it properly, instead when i click it firefox thought that i long pressed that small button and its kinda annoying because what i need to do is to zoom in for that button just so the firefox could properly click that and not long pressed. Problem is almost all the websites i visit has a button like that and so does it mean i will literally need to zoom a simple "x" button or any kind of small details on a webpage just for firefox could properly identify them?
