I have found that Tasks created in Thunderbird (102.2.1) on a CalDav server I use (Synology Calendar v 2.4.5-0930) are not visible on an iPhone (iOS 15.6.1 but earlier iOS versions have same issue) using the Apple Reminders app. Thunderbird can connect to the Synology Calendar, as can my iPhone. Calendar events I create in Thunderbird show up in iOS Calendar app, and event reminders show up in the iOS Reminders app. Thunderbird Tasks I create do not appear in iOS Reminders. Why is that and can it be addressed?

I use my regular gmail account in Firefox and Firefox is my default browser. Chrome pops up a login screen to allow me to sign into my school account or my regular account.

On Firefox when I go to google and click the login button, it takes me to my school login screen. How do I reset it to use my regular gmail account. My school uses gmail.

Can Firefox ask for the correct account when there are multiple accounts?

I am on a Macbook air running Firefox 109.0.1 with DuckDuckGo as the engine. This past week I've had webpages that I am using disappear leaving me with a blank tab. In the middle of the game or puzzle it just disappears and there I am with the Firefox logo on the page. The tab doesn't close, just the content is gone. The back button doesn't work - it's as if I have set a new tab. The two sites that seem to be disappear most frequently are: thejigsawpuzzle.com https://freeonlinemahjonggames.net/dogmahjong2.html both of which we have used for years without problems. It doesn't happen every time we use the webpages but at least once a day. We have restarted the computer and Firefox. This laptop is just a couple of weeks old, could that somehow be the issue?

There should be a guide by now or easy settings built into the browser to change these settings.

I'm having trouble with websites that think I'm a Bot, because they are detecting multiple operating systems/ OS, due to my settings and privacy extensions.

Is there anything in About:Config that I can change to set my OS to Windows??

Common methods for websites detecting someone's OS is by using Javascript, User Agent, and TCP/IP fingerprinting.

How do I fake the Javascript test? There's extensions that block Scripts but that leaves people unable to use websites, is there any command I can put in and set as default?

User Agent test - There's a few extensions that will work to change this, though if I can change this through About:config or other settings I would like to know.

The TCP/IP protocol controls how data is sent between computers and how the sender and receiving computers are identified. Mostly this is done identically by every computer, but some small parameters are implemented differently by different operating systems, creating a ‘fingerprint’.

I'm told this is very difficult to fake, but has a larger error rate anyway.

I am re-installing Windows10 Pro for a clean install. I made a backup of my profiles of Firefox and Thunderbird, both in AppData Local and Roaming. After reinstallation of Firefox and Thunderbird, I deleted the new profiles and recovered the old ones. Now I get a message that I'm missing a profile. I still get it after deleting the apps and doing a clean install. What can I do?

Is there a way in the Thunderbird Address Book to create a new address book contact by copying or cloning an existing contact? If not, that would be a helpful option in cases where an existing contact has all of the business name, address, website, company phone number, etc. Much of this information would be the same for a new contact at that business, so cloning existing data would save a lot of re-typing. Also in cases like this, it would be very handy to view the details of an existing contact while at the same time typing details into a separate window to create a new contact. Thanks!

I can not remove the extension!

I have noticed for some time now that I have an extension in my Firefox extensions that has no name and keeps installing itself, even when I try to uninstall it through the Firefox folder. The extension causes that in my search suggestions when I enter something always other websites come to the surface, or the actually suggested by firefox sites slide down. Some yahoo and amazon sites come up on my search results.

I am unable to install add-ons for Thunderbird for my Chromebook that I have installed via the embedded Linux OS that's in Chromebook. Inside the app(Thunderbird), I go to addons.thunderbird.net and attempt to install an add-on and this box with this button inside it pops up and I have to click on that button to confirm installation of that add-on. Well, I try clicking on that button and nothing happens and that box doesn't go away. I enclosed a screenshot to give you an idea of what I'm talking about.

No history since last FF update. When I open previous profiles, there is no history there either. Please provide some simple instructions that help me restore previous history, as I use this feature a lot.

Please help me to know how to easily restore my search history. I may switch to a different browser if I am unable to restore search history.

I have two large inconveniences that keeps me from using Firefox exclusively. 1)When entering a search term in Firefox on occasion I need to look up spellings in the search string. When I click off the search dialog box and return back to the dialog box on the search page everything is erased that I had previously added in the search box. This a a big inconvenience for me. Is there a way to change this setting?.

2) i have tried many time to download my bookmarks of Chrome. After following the published procedure nothing is copied to the bookmarks this is a big issue for using Firefox.

Im not a fan of chrome can you help me migrate to Foxfire. This is both on mu desktop win 11 and my apple iPhone 14

I am assisting friends. I am in the UK and they are in Gibraltar so am using TeamViewer. All the info relates to their PC. Using Thunderbird version 102.7.1 (32-bit). Only part of attached jpgs are displayed whether inline or when opening the file - e.g. 1.2mb of a 2.4 mb jpg or 1.3 of a 3.3 mb jpg. JPGs of 189 kb and 643 kb work fine. Clearing the cache solves the problem. However after restarting Thunderbird the problem reappears.

Have tried the following with no success: Creating a new profile Uninstalling Thunderbird Installing Thunderbird 64-bit Setting cache to 0 Setting cache to 50 They have reverted to the 32-bit version for the time being.

Strangely when accessing the imap account on my PC there are no problems.
