Im on a mac running 10.13.6 and my personalized fonts (papyrus) aren't completely working since last update. I didnt get a response to my search so thought I'd say something. I tried changing to a different font but it didn't take either after I restarted firefox. I don't have the allow sites to use their fonts checked, so I'm clueless... thanks

Hiya,


I'm having a minor inconvenience with firefox 91.0.2 for a few months now. It's popped up a few months ago and hasn't resolved itself in between updates.

I'm guilty of having many (well over 20) tabs open at the same time and around the 20th or 30th tab even, usually one of the (newly opened) tabs, simply never loads. If I open the same link in another tab, the link (any url) does load. See the screencap below.

This is on a windows 64 bit machine OS build: 19043.1165 (21H1) Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.3530.0

I'm running Norton 360 Antivirus software.

Will try running in safe mode, to see if it still happens and confirm in a reply to this message.

Hoping you guys might have some suggestions.

BTW: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1317506 is probably the same problem, unfortunately the thread has been archived. This one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1285104 also seems similar.

ok

I did some reading and i think i understand but i really want to make sure

I have a webmail account that i want all my emails to have a local backup on my computer

i believe i need to do pop3 with the option selected to leave emails on server

that reasoning is because i just want to backup emails on my computer with thunderbird not at this time use thunderbird full on instead of webmail/browser email. possibly in the future

it appears that i should not use imap because imap acts like a mirror? i dont want to mirror my emails i want to make a copy somewhere else that i can always have

so pop3 with that option to leave mail on the server is what i should do?

i think so....

....right?

Referencing these threads: 1281774 1307368 1317055 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1333680 (I posted a reply to this thread, but I can't view it and the moderator has apparently closed it thinking this problem has gone away)

We can ascertain that NOTHING seems to help this condition. In fact these threads apply to me as Win 7 / 64 bit apply to me. This started probably about 1.5 years ago.

I too have this problem and yes, it is random. BUT once locked in with this condition, it may "get stuck" for another 5 attempts for the same link. BEST Example, I do surveys every Friday and Saturday night. I use my netscape (AOL) email account. At random, while clicking on the survey link the tab will come up blank and no matter what you do, you CANNOT get this tab to do ANYTHING. No reload, no clicking on a new bookmark, no clicking on home, or typing in the address bar and pressing enter on THAT particular tab. How often does it happen? Maybe 12 times a month (during survey time: maybe every other weekend).

One step further on this. My wife's account on the PC actually does this on a DAILY BASIS REPEATEDLY EVERY DAY when she opens FireFox. In her case, it can ONLY be solved by closing and reopening FireFox after waiting like...say...2 minutes after previously opening it? I have tried opening new tabs etc as mentioned above (including the old right clicky trick and using the "Open in new tab" function). Kinda silly when you have like 27 tabs of blankness. Considering it is her account on the Pc, ok, maybe the "refresh" function might work on her? BZZZT! Nope.

Current version. I can attest that a PC at my 2 jobs that both have Win 7 and at least one, if not both, have 64 bit versions and do NOT display this malady. Also, I did re-install FF about 2 years ago for some other problem. I just ran the troubleshooting more...no go. Per this lead, try https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads-2647da03-1eea-4433-9aff-95f26a218cc0... and guess what? No such help . Anyone have have something to kill this bug?

Just downloaded and ran the Thunderbird 91 release (x64 version on Windows 10) to upgrade from version 78.2. Now, every time Thunderbird starts, I get a msg dialog containing the text: "There is no email program associated to perform the requested action. Please install an email program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel." Once I OK the dialog, Thunderbird starts and, as far as I can tell, runs normally and sends and receives emails without problem. I was getting no such error msg with Thunderbird 78 when starting it. I re-ran the install a second time, but the problem persists.

I've checked default apps, and default email application is set to Thunderbird, and I can right-click on a file in Explorer and and select Send To / Mail Recipient, and I correctly get a Thunderbird email window opened with the file attached. Any ideas on what Windows is complaining about?

When using Firefox, seemingly randomly the web browser will detect that the control button is pressed on the keyboard. There is nothing around the keyboard that has fallen on the control button, nor are sticky keys enabled in Windows 10. There been a few times now where I have been sitting back using the mouse only and Firefox to text at the control button is pressed and starts to zoom in or out because of that. The only way that I can stop it from happening is to click outside of Firefox on a different application and then go back. To attempt to fix this I've tried the following:

  1. restart firefox
  2. clear the cache, both manually and with ccleaner
  3. restarted windows
  4. checked for an update of firefox (I am at the latest version currently)
  5. diabled sticky keys in windows 10 completely
  6. tried a different keyboard

None of the above fixes have solved the problem that I am encountering. This issue does not happen in Google Chrome or any other application that I use it is specific to only Firefox. I looked for similar fixes before posting on here, and found two. One individual said that they fix this by changing their Wi-Fi adapter. I had tried to enable and disable this which had no effect. The second fix they said that they tried to restart the computer, which I have done no less than five times now in order try to solve is extremely irritating and functionality killing issue. Thanks guys.

I visit a website that hasn't upgraded to https yet. Whenever one of its pages times out (Firefox reports 'Unable to connect'), the location protocol changes from http to https. I suppose Firefox is trying to help me out by seeing if I typed in the wrong protocol.

This is annoying because I have to manually edit the address bar and remove the s from https and hit enter. I'd rather be able to refresh without thinking. Is there a way of turning this protocol changing functionality off?

Hello everyone!

Since the release of the new Firefox version 90 afterwards I have been using Firefox as I simply love surfing the internet with it as an alternative to chrome or chromium based browsers.

However, a small problem is annoying me: when I try to upload to iCloud.com or Google Drive, especially large ones, the upload speed is limited to 10 mbps, whereas I have an upload speed of 50 mbps.

On the other hand, when I try to upload on Chrome Browser or Edge Browser to both websites, the speed gets maxed out, literally maxed out by even 55 mbps!

I even tried to upload similar sized files simultaneously to Chrome, Edge and Firefox. Chrome and Edge finished while Firefox is still stuck on one third of the upload!

The strange thing though: when I open speedtest.net and measure the upload speed, it gives me on Firefox a speed of 50 mbps!

Any idea where the problem is? Any ideas how to speed up the upload and benefit from the max speed?

I am using latest Firefox on Windows 10.

Thank you!

Since I can’t find an easy way to send a complaint; guess I gotta ask a question.

The new update (36) adds two new features that are not desired by my personal use. Maybe someone else finds them good, but not me.

Opening the browser and then having to open your tabs to find what you were looking at previously is frustrating. If you want to have the option to have it open to a new “home” tab after idle for a while, cool. Make it a toggle feature. Being forced into this new more cumbersome feature is annoying.

The second frustration is the dedicated Home button at the bottom of the UI. Again, maybe some people find this a plus. I don’t. If I want to go “home” I’ll open a new tab. The desktop browser UI can be customized as you see fit (one of the reasons I switched to it years ago); why not the IOS browser? For me, having the refresh button down there was way more useful. Again, can this be made a toggle or custom select option?

Hi All,

I'm not getting emails on my laptop since I either clicked the wrong thing when given the choices on security certificates or when I switched to another host. The gent who's doing the new hosting suggests it'd be best to delete Thunderbird and reinstall it, but I'm scared of losing all my address book, email, history etc. but might have to live with it. However, I can still receive emails on my phone.

I'm not a natural on IT, but once I'm shown the correct thing to do I'm not a numbskull either.

Anyone been this way before or has some simple and effective advice, thanks for taking the time to respond.
