Currently @ Ver. 102.0.1 Problem remains. Since the update to 102.0 my Win10 PC has problems with the page update. When the scroll slider gets near the bottom the page, new images begin to load. This reload results in 3-15+ newly loaded Fb posts scrolling past so fast as to be invisible. I have to keep my cursor on the scroll slider and, when the loading begins, start scrolling up if I want to have any chance to easily find the last post I was reading. I have seen this behavior, grossly exaggerated, when I was viewing a video. The reload caused the viewing to pause and upwards of 15 newly loaded posts scrolled past in this rapid manner. My work requires that I am able to view pages of Facebook posts and this is now massively time-consuming and intolerable. I may have to change browsers in spite of my reluctance to do so.

Hi everyone,

I was happy with it but I realized several months ago than websites as leboncoin.fr, amazon.fr, decathlon.fr (yes i'm french), didn't keep me loged in but remember what I had looked for and where I was. This problem is permanent.

I don't have this problem with Firefox for Windows.

So it seems something is nor cleared from the app when I close it.

Thank you very much for your help !

This is the message I get when I send using Thurderbird, with the new version 102.3.0.

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

I changed the settings and still get the same error. I checked the settings and still get the same error. I restarted computer and the modem etc. The server is still working, as I can use webmail to send emails, and they work. I can only assume something in the new version has changed the way the settings are read.

Upgraded to v102 yesterday, and am really annoyed with the way so many things are behaving differently.

Latest annoyance is that when I'm looking at a folder, and archive an email (by pressing A if that makes any difference), TB then highlights the next email down, which is fine. However, it seems to think I want it to open the email, and so pops up a window to show me the message.

Can I stop it doing this? It never did this before, and I really don't want it popping up email windows without asking me. I just discovered about fives windows, all showing the same email, all hiding behind my main TB window.

Thanks for any help. In case it makes any difference, attached is the only bit of the settings that looks like it might be relevant. Can't see anything there that would control this though.

Thanks

Hi folks,

Forced to update (expected) and 102 ran like two flat tires and no spare whil eI had no issues with 91. MANY hours of searching got me reasonably successful in acceptable performance. But two problems, one which could easily be a bug:

1. I can find no way including in about:config to enable lazy tab loading. In other words, open a group but not load each tab until it is clicked on.

Where did that go?

2. This one is more unique. I have a desktop install of ESR and a portable ESR install on a thumb drive. For MANY years I backed up bookmarks on my desktop and restored them to FF on my thumb drive. Now, after I shut down the portable (which takes a very long time) there are multiple bookmarks. Html files that seem to merge on shutdown. Problem is, on the thumb drive this is not completed before FF shutdown and the processes closed. Results in damaged bookmark files and a crash EVERY time.

IF I drag the copy of FF ESR portable to my desktop and perform the same procedure, no problems. So somehow on a USB 3 thumb drive the process of merging bookmarks. Html files is too slow and will cause a crash consistently.

Any suggestions or should I file a bug report?

I have used Firefox for my online banking for years. Just recently when I go to the bill payment section and click on the drop down list to pay and view a bill, I can pay the bill, but when I try to view the bill the view bill window comes up for a second and the a drop down of the bank's home page comes up. The view bill page used to be a PDF file and Adobe Reader is my default. I talked with the bank and they did not see it happen in my account. If I open the online banking in Microsoft Edge it does not occur.

upgraded to last version of thunderbird. 102.1.0 everything was fine until now. well yeah, the multicolour icons are a bit "stressful" to the eyes for me who prefers dark themes and really the new version of the contacts list as a TAB is BIG pain in the butt.

however the most annoying is the double inboxed emails. SOME, not all emails, appear twice! an exact copy! sending works, receiving works, however at random points i get 2 copies of the same email from random ( ? ) senders.

I am running TB 102.1.2 64-bit on Windows 10 Professional 21H2. On occasion, TB will stop auto-downloading mail. When this happens, I have to click on "Get Messages" to re-start the POP3 download process. My refresh interval is every ten minutes. Last night at 9:42 I sent a piece of mail, and then no mail was downloaded. I have attached a screen-shot of the TB error console that shows the end of my 9:42PM SMTP mail send and the lines that follow. I do not know how to save the error console to a file, and I do not know if there is more relevant information in the error console. I have not kept track of the occurrences of this problem, so I cannot tell when the problem first surfaced.

I will now click "Get Messages", as I need to see my mail. Is there any other documentation I can capture when this problem next occurs? Thanks.

I clicked "Get Messages", and I saw an error pop-up window:

    Error with account ...
    The account ... is being processed.  Please wait until processing is complete to get messages.

I believe that this is the first time I have seen this pop-up message. I opened ProcessExcplorer, and I have a screen-shot of Thunderbird. I have tried to add the image to this posting, but I do not see it.

Short version: what happens when I change the Firefox account password?

Long version: I'm thinking of replacing my current password, with a very long one. If I do so, will there a re-upload of my data take place? Will my credentials on the cloud become harder to crack (assume that the new password is longer and more complex).

I have a problem accessing articles in the New York Times web page. I have a Basic subscription and I am signed in. When I try to read an article, the New York Times site thinks I do not have a subscription and that I have used up all my free articles. If I use the Chrome browser, it works fine, but I do not want to use Chrome. I use FireFox for all my browsing. I have deleted cache and cookies. Tried the "Private Windows" too. I have logged out and back in. I have rebooted the machine (an Alienware 17 R5) and closed and opened Firefox. The "agents" I chatted with say this is a browser problem as everything is working fine on their side and it works in Chrome. Can anyone help me out?
