How can i hide my display/screen resolution from websites? I use Firefox in windowed mode not with my default screen size but websites know my default resolution. This can be used to identify my pc. I dont want that for privacy reasons like tracking and adverstising. How can i prevent this? I found many threads/posts about this in various forums/websites. They are talking about Tor Browser and that websites can identify you if using full-screen mode. But as i said, im using Firefox not Tor and while im using windowed-mode websites still know my default resoltion. I tested this on https://whoer.net/

Another question, how can i restore the default window size in Firefox?

duplicate of /questions/1358995 thread.

1. iNTRO - I spent an extra un-necessary year on the beta channel because of TBs Oauth2 set up problem. While there I had a major Tbird crash. Duplicates appearing , moving emails to other folders resulting in loss of said emails. incessant indexing, compacting and re-appearance of deleted contents of directories with unexpected loss of current contents. A real mess. After a month of this nonsense I only managed to recover by re-installing Beta to a new directory and copying backed up local folders manually, directory by directory, into the new Beta and checking (and or repairing) the contents, folder by folder. It took a day and a half. Arising from this experience and looking, sometimes aghast at the Beta Channe,l I suggest the following.

2. Suggestions 2 .1 Repair Tool We need to have a repair tool to rebuild a mail system just as I have partially described - you will know that there are many nuances in such a rebuild with some .sbd files not being recognised automatically and some others being recognised (trial and error methods were used to overcome these problems). In short you guys have the rule book and could easily programme a rebuild tool. What a relief it would be to know that such a rescue vehicle was at hand. 2.2 Back Up Tool As email data bases grow - mine is now 33 Gb - there has to be good back up system that users can trust. In the MS world (awful software) the back-up tools are not much good - so it would be useful for TB to do this or recommend some software for this purpose. I think TB guys should do this as Restore facilities are critical here - offering users options to recover particular email folders and emails and place them in particular locations would seem essential. 2.3 Archive

I have a lot of folders - but many are not  active at any one time. eg I have sent directories going back to 1997 eg Sent_1997, Sent_1998 etc . It would be useful to have a foreground / background arrangement of folders where folders in the background were semi-archived. They would be visible and accessible when required but not part of TB's routine search or maintenance .   They could be differently coloured in the LHS pane. It might take longer to access them. This might have the effect of preventing loss of active performance.

2.4 Deep Archive A deep archive where the user elects to compress(ZIP) folders in the Deep Archive. Once archived these would be ignored by the system unless they were released into the foreground /background area 2.5 Purge Command When things go wrong and the indexing screws up many duplicates are sometimes created. There should be a Purge folder command when right clicking on a folder.

There are other things such as better TB messaging and better documentation of the profile folder system - the existing information is too dispersed - and shoe-string - needs a User friendly approach not assuming one is familiar with shells. Do everything through DOS for consistency. Here too a tool would be useful.

I have seen this problem posted several times without a solution and having fixed it, I am making the effort to let all know the answer.

Here is the error / problem: "The RETR command did not succeed. Error retrieving a message. Mail server pop-server.woh.rr.com responded: no such message."

I had this happen some time ago on another pop on RR mail server and logging in via Web Mail and deleting the emails worked BUT.. It happened again on another pop account and it did not work.. So... I nuked the pop via the master account and re-added it.. nothing so, I ran check disk thinking a FAT corruption NOPE, I restored a MOZBACK of Thunderbird from like a month ago Ziltch.. I called useless RR support and nothing!

FINALLY *Scratching Head*.. In there change your Junk mail options to "delete the email". I had one junk email stuck in there and after refreshing that page..That one Junk Email was gone and THEN Thunderbird worked checking that pop..

WAHLAH!

I hate when the simplest of things do not work and it pissed me off nobody had the answer.. HERE YOU ALL GO!

Every time I browse to a webpage that loads a video, Firefox makes a notification for the video, even when the video is not playing. When the tab is closed, the notification won't go away. This notification even has a play button, which doesn't do anything (after the tab is closed). I can't swipe it away, and the only way to get rid of it is to close Firefox from the recent apps screen. Is there a fix for this?

Hi and hello!

I am on a Macbook Pro laptop from 2015

Whenever I attempt to view something off Netflix I keep getting error code F7121-3078 :(

Similarly, when I attempt to view Amazon Prime Video it says "We're experiencing a problem playing this video."

I followed instructions, I updated my mac itself to Catalina 10.15.3 and reinstalled Firefox so it should be 100% up to date.

still didn't work.

I read somewhere in this forum from a January post if I open Firefox in 32 bit mode after selecting command + i that it should work but I didn't have that option. I opted for the low resolution setting I saw and not only do the videos still not play but now it looks like I need glasses more than I really do :p I'll be changing that back asap.

What's the vibe check on this? Is there a resolution or a possible ETA of a resolution? Anything?

Any info would be grand!

When receiving internal Messages from another Computer in the sam SMB-Domain which include links to local files in the form of file:\\server\path\file.extension which are correct when clicking on the link and opening it in a browser or Windows Exlplorer.exe the \\server part gets lost making this links unusable. The Link in the HTML Email is correct and can be opened in MS Outlook. The Link is corectly shown in the email as well, where you can copy the text - not the broken hyperlink - and paste it in an explorer window. Any help is appreciated.

I went to retrieve and send messages this evening and I appear to be blocked I am using one of 5 computers that are mine exclusively how ever they are turned off each time when I am done with them and they then log in from a new location via a roving router connection and I really do not need the hassle of not being able to get into my account to get my work done. This has started happening regularly since November 2019 rarely ever before had troubles. Really need to get my emails and I am not having any luck with them....

I have a Firefox inside Windows 10. The browser crashes suddenly and then Firefox can no longer be opened. Completely uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox has been tried, but to no avail. Safe mode or Firefox refresh is done but to no avail. I really don't know what happened. I even deleted the old profile and the new one was created automatically. But I am constantly confronted with the message "Mozilla Crash Reporter". Crash ID: bp-8ddf1f68-a4f1-425a-8f91-24a060200215

When I click Update, 13,2 MB are downloaded, then immediately another 53,7 MB and after that message appears like - Firefox can't update to the latest version. I disabled all extensions. Are there other solutions besides installing the application again? Surely, after such an operation, I have to reconfigure something again :(

Can I at least find out the reason why this is happening? Maybe some logs?
