My browser won’t load any images on any sites, and some sites are not functional at all. Example attached below.

I have cleared all private browsing data, switched between Strict and Standard tracking protection, and restarted my phone. No luck.

Everything loads properly on other browsers.

Advice?

I run Thunderbird 91.3.2 on a Mac, OS is fully up to date. If I double click on a pdf or jpg or some such attachment it will automatically open the application assigned to it in the Thunderbird preference pane. However with a .doc, .docx, .ppt or .xlsx etc. Thunderbird keeps asking which application to open. Despite ticking the box "Always...." and despite the right settings in the preferences pane.

Any suggestions how I should go about fixing this?

There's a social media website I want to get notifications for so that when I get a couple messages I can quickly respond, however I do not like how when I get a ton of notifications in a short time, it gets annoying and can block parts of the screen. I was wondering if there's any trick that could be done to limit notification frequency without disabling them entirely. I'm on Windows 10 if there's an OS specific solution.

As of 11/21/2021 is there any way to stop detaching and floating videos ? All the searches on the Web produce loads of blogs where the issue is discussed -- but none of it works definitively. A lot of Hot Air and useless comments on the topic. Most point to about:config, which has been shown useless to stop floating videos, in my experience. Have tried every permutation of manipulating relevant config settings according to advice I have found -- nothing works. At the DailyMail.Com you can ad a script to AdBlock and it works -- for one site...

All the search links go in circles and just repeat the same information -- none of which works. Particularly annoying are the CBS affiliate sites with the URL *CbsLocal.com. Element blocking and ad blocking via UBlock and AdBlock does NOT work beyond one page view. It seems the floating video frames are given unique tags each time the page loads so you would have to code every combination of the alpha-numeric identifiers they use. That number is something like equivalent to the number of all the grains of sand on all the beaches in the world, according to my calculator...

If I am directed to manipulate about:config again I think I will scream and pull my hair out. Such a major annoyance and I am to believe there is utterly no way to stop it ? After all these years and the FF developers haven't looked into this ? I find that hard to believe...

Hello, I'm behind a corporate proxy server and I had no issues with this until a couple of months ago. First I was using FoxyProxy, and one day I realized that Firefox wasn't syncing so I started troubleshooting (Troubleshoot mode) and found out that when a proxy addon (now I moved to SmartProxy and it's the same) is enabled Sync fails. I even tried setting up a new profile with a different, new, Firefox Sync account and the outcome is the same. Anyone else having this trouble? Is this a bug? Should I report it? Anyone wants to help me reproduce it? Thanks in advance!

PS: This happens on my Windows 10 machine too.

Hello everyone,

I have been running into a display issue for a while now : the SMIME information regarding either signature or encryption is not displayed anywhere when reading a message (either in its own window, own tab or within the default view).

The weirdest parts are (cf images):

  • for PGP, no issues, either when receiving or sending
  • when creating the email, the SMIME signature / encryption logo is displayed as expected (at the bottom of the composition window)

I didn't find anything within the Error window (besides some issue happening with basically every email when switching from one to another in the main window) :

18:30:07.548 WebExtensions: suspend not available protocolhandler.js:350 18:30:07.582 WebExtensions: resume not available protocolhandler.js:353

Technical details :

  • System : Archlinux
  • TB version : 91.3.2
  • Installed add-on : Owl Owl (tried to contact them but no answer yet)

Does anyone have an idea why this would happen / a way to fix it ?

Two problems, no doubt related:

1. All of a sudden, about a week ago, we started getting this message:

Sending of the message failed. The message could not be sent because connecting to Outgoing server (SMTP) mail.solaritis.net failed. The server may be unavailable or is refusing SMTP connections. Please verify that your Outgoing server (SMTP) settings are correct and try again.

No changes to any profile or configuration have been made. Running Win7Pro and the latest Tbird on an HP Envy laptop.

2. Also, failure to automatically download messages from Network Solutions, our email provider when first loading TBird. "Connection to server mail.solaritis.net timed out." When I then Get Messages, it works (and works for the rest of the time TBird is loaded; unload and reload, problem again.

I want to use IMAP so I can keep my trash, sent and draft emails synchronized between all devices But I also want to clear all my emails older than 21 days from the server and all my devices with the exception of one Desktop device, where I want to keep an unlimited local copy of all past emails: received, sent, trash and drafts.

Sounds like what I want is something in the middle between IMAP and POP

Pop can keep local copies while deleting for the server but can't sync send, draft and trash IMAP can sync all folders but can't (or at least doesn't by default) delete from the server while keeping a local copy

I have tried setting up both IMAP and POP, but POP simply can't pull emails which were sent by other devices so I figure I have to use IMAP and somehow configure it so that I can clear emails form the server while keeping an offline copy.

Can Thunderbird be configured to use IMAP but also for example copy each email from each folder to a local folder where it will not be deleted? If that can not be done, how can I officially request such feature to be added to Thunderbird?


Just for context: The reason I want to set it up this way is because I want to synchronize my emails to the email client on my phone, but I regard my phone as somewhat insecure: I could lose it or it could get stolen. I want to sync my emails to it, but not keep them longer than 21 days. I also want to consider the server as somewhat insecure, as I know that in some circumstances someone could reset the password of my mailbox by fooling the provider (or it could be subpoenaed) The email client on my desktop is secure, it is installed within an encrypted environment.

I recently updated to IOS 15.1. Now video playback from streaming sites doesn't work in Firefox Focus. This is not an isolated issue. It appears that other browsers aside from Safari are affected as well. So doubtless Apple has deprecated something which everyone else is using. I'm using Firefox Focus 39.0 (8631) IOS 15.1 Iphone 8 plus 128GB Same issue with Chrome. Was some issue with Safari at first but was able to disable GPU rendering of video. Then video streaming worked. There doesn't seem to be a corresponding setting in Focus. Apps like Youtube, Twitter and Instagram seem to be unaffected. However those have updated recently.

So, my wife uses Mozilla Thunderbird v on a Windows PC.

Her email account uses IMAP3 so she can access her mail from her cell phone, but it has limited space so we need to archive her mail on her hard drive every so often.

We've noticed a strange (and annoying) behavior. When she uses "Reply all" on a message:

  • that she has sent,
  • that is archived on the hard drive,
  • that has Bcc addresses,

said addresses don't appear in the new message.

If the original message is still in her "Sent" box, the Bcc addresses do appear quite normally in the new message.

Does anyone know if that's normal behavior, and if not, how to fix it? (I guess moving the message back to the "Sent" box would at least be worth a try, but trust me that I can't ask her to do that regularly.)

Thanks to any and all still with me, and have a nice day/evening/night wherever you are!
