Anyone else satisfied with the VPN speed? Mozilla advertises as no speed limits but that's not correct. When I use the VPN the max I can get is 26-Mbps but with the VPN turned off I get 150-Mbps. Throttling?

Search with ctrl-k no longer works when keyword.enabled = false

For quite some time now I've had keyword.enabled set to false in my about:config because I don't like having the address bar try to autocomplete or turn things into search, when I do a ctrl-l.

I do like that I am still able to use ctrl-k to do a search when I need to. This would place a ? at the start of the field and whatever I type gets sent to search.

In a recent upgrade, ctrl-k still places the ? at the start of the address bar but doesn't send things to search. Instead, it now behaves as if I did a ctrl-l and typed in a bad URL.

I'm on Firefox 80 (on Fedora 32) but I can't be exactly sure which upgrade brought this change in behavior.

Is there a way to get the old behavior back? ctrl-l to enter a URL, ctrl-k to search.

It does not matter how many times I change this setting in preferences to "Open in Firefox" I still get this pop-up every time I click a pdf.

It also does not matter how many times I select "open with preview" and click "Do this automatically for files..." box. Every time I click the next pdf the same thing pops up!?!?!?!

And additionally no matter my selection I make ends up leading to a pdf being downloaded automatically.

This is beyond frustrating. Please help.

Ever since the revamp I have a lot of trouble with typing a search phrase in the address bar. After hitting enter, nothing happens. Hitting the magnifying glass: nothing. Selecting an alternate engine: nothing.

I have not noticed a definite pattern, but I want to say that it is more frequently occurring when I'm searching from a previously-opened tab (maybe something to do with trying to search from a tab that never fully opened? Just a guess.) It is not a connection problem- I switch to chrome: no problems. I want to continue using firefox, so I am writing this, but it is annoying enough that I will be forced to uninstall and use another browser if the problem persists. Good luck folks, I support Mozilla's mission and want y'all to continue to succeed

I just purchased a 2020 iMac. I have used a Windows machine for about 15 years, and for most of that time I have used Thunderbird for my email. I am very satisfied with Thunderbird, with the exception of being unable to talk to a human about difficulties I occasionally have. In the past I used this question service, and received completely useless answers about how to download all my emails onto an external drive.

At this point in time I am frustrated because I downloaded Thunderbird onto my new iMac. Every time I open Thunderbird on the iMac, it says I have to set up the program. I have done this several times now. How do I get the program to be set up and able to open properly?

And how do I get to talk to a human so I can navigate around the inevitable differences between the prescribed steps to take, and the fact that the computer will inevitably have some differences from what the answer says I should be seeing?

Hi guys, I have been using T-Bird for years and everything is quite nice, however after I updated it to 68.12.0, a part of my folders were covered by the scrollbar. I remember previously the scrollbar will keep the ending letters and the number of unread messages of my folder. But now, the last letters were covered and I can not clearly see how many unread messages in the folders!

Please see the picture here, it's really not smart if it's a designed update.

Please help me to solve this.

I apologize if this has been addressed already, but I searched the articles and could not find this specific issue. When I send an email to some Gmail accounts, the entire message becomes double or even triple spaced between each line. I'm not aware that this is happening until the I get a reply email, and see the insane amount of spacing. This only happens to some Gmail recipients. Other Gmail accounts format the email just fine, as it was originally sent. See examples below. TIA for any help to remedy this issue!

Since update to version 81. a few days ago, my flash player ( adobe ) is not working properly on Facebook Farmville game. Page loads and prompts me for flash - but when page loads up it is way way oversized and unable to get it to normal size. Unable to play the game at all on Firefox browser.

I have spent a few days trying everything I could think of ( including re-installing adobe flash player). I have found no fix.  I now have to use my google chrome browser to play my daily game, of which I am not happy..  don't personally like google. 
Do you have any suggestions ..  or can I go back to the previous version of firefox, where I had no problem with flash player?

How do I make my tabs look like they did before with 2 rows and the newest tab opening on the bottom on my Android phone.

And ... How do i get rid of the collection option, or DO I HAVE AN OPTION?

And .... Why do developers feel they must fix something that's not broken?

I run two calendars, but each has a different default reminder setting. The main setting, in Tools/Options/Calendar has the default setting off. This is the case when creating a new event in one calendar, but in the other, it has a default reminder of 30 minutes. I want the default setting turned off for both, but can't see how to isolate the settings. I am running latest release of Thunderbird 68.12 in Windows 10. Both calendars use the Google plug-in to synchronise with Google calendar on mobile devices.

Like I said, a general question. I have firebox logo at bottom of my mobile screen. Up top, I have a search box with Google logo but I changed it to a firefox logo. Why is it that when I use firefox to search the logo changes from firefox to Google? I'm confused-- am I searching with firefox or Google? Why doesn't the firefox logo remain? Many thanks in advance.

Hello,

I'd like to have an option to mute/unmute chosen specific email boxes.

Use case: You have 10 mail boxes added to thinderbird and you are getting spammed on one of them. You would like to mute this one email box until you prevent the spam or resolve the issue sending you lot of emails.

Another use case: you are in meeting and would like to prevent only specific email boxes from showing you notifications, eg. personal box.

I believe people which use multiple email boxes will find this feature useful.
