Prior to the decision by Ubuntu to use a Snap to package Firefox, Firefox was routinely updated by APT. This was largely invisible to the user who merely had to authorize the update. However with SNAP there is now the annoying countdown that appears every day when I go into Firefox. I have not researched Snap vs Flatpak vs Aur vs ..., so I do not understand why Ubuntu does not update the Firefox SNAP in the backfround. Undoubtedly there are advantages to Canonical in using Snap, but they haven't sold those advantages to me!

Like a lot of people I spend a lot of my life with the browser open. Linux does not generally use proprietary apps for access to tools which use such apps on mobile devices, so using Twitter, or Youtube, or Reddit, or various Google tools, just uses tabs within the browser. This means to update the SNAP for Firefox I have to exit out of every application on my desktop, and then wait while the SNAP refresh runs in a terminal window, not even a GUI tool. Furthermore this is not just the time to apply the update, I also have to wait while 3MB of code is downloaded, because Ubuntu doesn't bother to preload the Snap update! Strangely Ubuntu 22.04 does not even automatically run a SNAP refresh during a reboot, when everything, including the SNAP daemon itself is shut down! One of the first things I had to do after upgrading to 22.04 was to apply a new snap of the daemon itself. Ubuntu does not provide a tool to shut down the snap daemon. You must open a terminal and kill the daemon.

Although I can tolerate the time it takes this update mechanism to run, I cannot tolerate the time it would take me to restore all of the activities that I had open within Firefox. At this moment, a typical day, I have eighteen tabs open in Firefox. Ubuntu demands that I shut down Firefox, which will discard all of that state information, sit around while it mindlessly loads and applies the SNAP that it could have done in the background, and then I have to restore those eighteen tabs.

So I open the terminal, enter "sudo killall firefox; sudo snap refresh". But then when I go back into Firefox it naturally wants to warn me that the previous session was terminated abnormally. I know that I killed it. The message Firefox chooses for this is misleading "Sorry. We’re having trouble getting your pages back." Instead of, for example "Firefox failed abnormally. Do you want to resume your previous pages?" Since I cannot easily avoid the Ubuntu implementation of SNAP for Firefox is there a Firefox configuration option that says "Yeah, I know Firefox crashed, but I would prefer not to be annoyed by a misleading message when I start it up again if there is a snapshot to recover from."

More and more websites are alerting me that they are not fully compatible with Firefox and that I should instead use Chrome, Safari or Microsoft Edge. Recent examples are Allstate Insurance and Hewlett-Packard, not exactly insignificant players in the business world.

Here's what Allstate had across their page when I was attempting to log in:

"You may not be able to use certain My Account features on your current browser. For the best experience, consider using the latest versions of Chrome, Safari or Microsoft Edge."

There have been other websites with similar messaging about Firefox. The issue seems to be growing. Is there a fix coming from Firefox or are we going to continue to lose compatibility?

Recently, I've decided to install Firefox since another program I'd like to use is dependent on it. After the simple installation the browser opened, but I carelessly closed all the tabs and it suddenly crashed. Since then no matter how many times a restart my PC, reinstall the browser or delete files, it simply closes as soon as it opens. It seems to be indicative of a file preventing it from starting, or it's missing a file, but I thought I'd ask for assistance before giving up.

This is my website. I am developing a game engine however it is quite problematic that on my pc they display the old first version of the site, some error occurs and it displays a copy of the site downloaded somewhere in the memory of the PC apparently it is not very pleased. Fortunately, on a MacBook, your browser does not throw this away. how do I protect my site from firefox not displaying a page that no longer exists? I attach a photo on it of the old appearance of the site that it displays to me and I am sure that by going here (http://srv182659.hoster-test.ru/) you will not see this.

Я разрабаываю игровой движок однако довольно проблематично то что на моем пк они отображает старую первую версию сайта, происходит какая то ошибка и он отображает копию сайта скачанную куда-то в память пк видимо это не очень радует.

In the recent versions of Thunderbird (102.2.x, 102,3,3, 106.0b5, and possibly earlier) searching messages no longer works on my home system.

On the main message screen, the Quick Search field used to let me quickly filter out messages with a subject or sender matching whatever I put in that field. It would in fact start filtering matches as I'm typing. This no longer happens, with multiple email addresses (such as GMail, or my ISP).

If I bring up the full search dialogue while on a folder from one of my email accounts (so that it should be able to guess which account I'm searching in) the "Search for messages in" field is greyed out. with the text "No available folders".

The thing is, my work computer with Thunderbird 102.2.0 still has functional search (both Ouick Find and the full search dialogue).

Hi,

I didn't used thunderbird quite a while and now I changed my google mail account to oauth2 for incoming and outgoing mails. I give access for Thunderbird to Google and find this new allowed access and the new assigned thunderbird rights in my google security settings. But I always receive the error message that authentication for imap failed immediately after I successfully login via the browser window in thunderbird. I deleted all extensions and cache folders.

Please have a look at my settings. Do you have ideas ?

From several weeks we have to copy and paste the account passwords at every launch of Thunderbird. If I flag the option to remember passwords nothing happens; thunderbird did not proceed and ask again for passwords. The only way to proceed is to fill the passwords without the flag to remember passwords. In this case I can access to the mails but I will have the same problem at the next startup of Thunderbird. This happens both on Win10 64bit and Win10 32bit versions. Thank you for your support best regards Davide

I have a Macbook with a Finnish keyboard layout.

Safari, Chrome and Edge, by default, support command+ö and command+ä for going back and forward in history. This is because Finnish/Swedish (they're the same) keyboard layout doesn't have [ or ] available.

While command + back arrow and command + forward arrow still work, those are useless as they get disabled when a text field is focused.

I tried to work around this with an extension (shortkeys), but even they don't support using umlauts for shortcuts.

I'm trying to adopt Firefox but I can't unless this gets fixed.

Thank you.

I have 3042 *.msf files going back to 03/22/2010. I hope I never have to go back to 2013 to check on what I did or did not do in those files. Using Thunderbird 102.2.2, Windows 10 with mail server on Ionos.com using an 8800L Verizon jetpack I get pop ups when I want to quit TB saying TB not responding. Could it be *.msf files are taking up space? Also I think there should be a warning, unless I missed it, when deleting Thunderbird 102.2.2 other day thinking it might help doing a reload so Thunderbird will respond I see where I lost all my junk mails to block. All gone. Looks like I am going to have to start over blocking them. If there is something that will cause something else to occur with deleting *msf files please let me know. Thanks
