I have edited my Settings so that I do not receive emails for any Watchings, but it has been 3 days I think, and I am still receiving forum threads. I just now removed the DownThemAll Watchings thinking this is what I needed to do until I am ready to get back into the issue. How do I stop receiving forum threads unrelated to DownThemAll? Attached are snippets to show you what I have done.

And im guessing me struggling in the way that i did.that someone who's IT skilled and definitely equipped with enough knowledge is going to be needed..And how i deeply wish and pray that someone can renew my faith by doing something that a number of guys with so called IT experience who kinda breaged about it were all stuck and xualy shocked coz it sounded easy until they themselves were speechless..atleast there's one guy who says there is a way. That is why i chose to ask whoever doesnt matter for their help and info please guys anyone who is willing to be kind enough to help..i would really appreciate and Definitely help wont be be in vain..a blessing towards someone who helps others is rightfully earned...

This problem cropped up a few months ago. I've tried several remedies suggested online after doing Google and Bing searches, but nothing that involved registry changes. The one thing that helped, if only partially and temporarily, was clearing out recent history, cookies and cache. (BTW, a cache-clearing extension I've used for years appears to not be doing anything.) Emails that arrived for two or three days after that displayed images. Then, no more.

Side effects of all that clearing out was several days of having to go through two-factor authentication on many sites and being bombarded with warning emails that someone logged in with my credentials, was that really me?  And, that last part kept happening on different devices I use regularly.

I have no such problem with Hotmail email using MS Edge or the Chrome browser. I have no such problem using Firefox with Gmail or Yahoo mail. I've used Firefox for many years and want to go on using it, but more and more I'm using one of the other browsers so I can see images in emails. It appears Firefox has a long history of this type of problem.

Any help will be appreciated.

After updating to Thunderbird 102.0 the Crash reporter opens every time I open the program. I use multiple profiles and this causes me to have to deal with the Crash Reporter multiple times a day. Today I updated to 102.1 and it STILL is causing the Crash reporter to open.

And on top of that none of the extensions like the Tbsync and Provider for Caldav are working. I have used this program for close to 15 years and never had issues until now. No other programs I use are crashing and I have run DISM and SFC.

Hi,

Problem coincides with upgrade to 102.0.1. Oauth2 POP3 works fine with gmail accounts. Does not work with office365 account. Oauth2 password process appears to work fine. But checking mail simply stalls while status bar indicates connecting to server. New account with IMAP works fine (but I don't use that for good reason I won't go into). SMTP works fine.

Anyone else have the problem?

We generally can't access 53.com using Firefox (102.0.1 (64-bit) on MacOS on our M1 Macbook Air, but can on Windows 11. All software versions are current, and we even periodically encountered this on our Mac with past versions of Firefox and MacOS software. Clearing cookies and cache has sometimes helped, but is not working now. There is no error code displayed, the signin in box simply has its three dots continuing to cycle indicating that it is working, but the status bar is not displaying the "transferring data from onlinebanking.53.com" url as it does on Windows, per the attached screenshot. Created the attached screen shot from Windows, but this is where it hangs on the Mac. Also, this happens whether the extensions are enabled or not, and there are far fewer extensions on the Mac browser, primarily Lastpass and Grammarly. BTW, the site works fine on Chrome on both systems, but we obviously want to stick with Firefox.

Any suggestions on how this can be resolved once and for all would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks and regards,

Howard

Since that I keep getting the above message and it will not accept the new password. I have deleted the account and re-installed it, changed the SMTP settings and port, closed and re-opened thunderbird and re-booted the computer but cannot send a message from the account. I can still send messages from my other microsoft accounts

Hi, so I recently installed arch Linux and want to use Firefox as my browser. However ever since I installed it, it takes a long time to launch the program. It consistently takes just over 26 seconds to launch. After it's open everything works fine besides that. Also when I launch Firefox from the terminal I get this message "ATTENTION: default value of option mesa_glthread overridden by environment.

  • The attached image shows Firefox (on the right) not displaying Helvetica correctly. It appears jagged and not pleasant to look at. The browser on the left is Edge and all Chromium based web browsers seem to render it as it should.
  • I've tried to look into (about:preferences#general) and the option that says (Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above) is ticked.
  • I've also tried reinstalling the browser, clearing the website cache and also, removing my profile from it. None of these seemed to fix the issue.
  • It's been persistent for quite some time now, however I didn't really find any articles regarding this issue.
  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

This was going to be a question about Firefox being unable to display the file picker dialog, but I managed to find a solution that worked for me along the way. Since it was nowhere near the top of Google's results, I thought I'll share my solution in the hopes that this would help someone facing this same issue.

The hardware:

  • Asus UM425IA Zenbook (AMD Ryzen 7 4700U CPU)

Worked in:

  • Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
  • Firefox provided by APT repository
  • Xorg display server

Not working in:

  • Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
  • Firefox 99.0.1 provided by snap
  • Wayland display server
  • File picker worked briefly on fresh install, but something (not sure what) quickly breaks file picker functionality

The symptoms:

  • Firefox stopped being able to open file picker dialogs
  • Right clicking an image and selecting "Save Image As..." does nothing
  • With forms that accept file upload (such as on this post question page "Add images (optional):"), clicking "Browse" does nothing
  • File downloads work correctly when set to "Save files to ..." under Settings, but nothing happens when set to "Always ask you where to save files"
  • No response to "Ctrl + O" open file shortcut

Similar questions and solutions:

Things I tried that did not work:

  • Disabling hardware acceleration
  • Starting with add-ons disabled
  • Troubleshoot mode
  • Clearing startup cache
  • Clearing cookies and site data
  • Clearing history
  • Refreshing Firefox
  • Creating and using a new profile
  • Deleting the `xulstore.json` file from the profile directory
  • Toggling all permissions under Ubuntu Settings > Applications > Firefox to off and then back to on
  • chmod 777 ~/Downloads
  • Disabling native file picker "ui.allow_platform_file_picker = false"

And finally, what fixed it for me was to go into "about:config" and change "widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal.file-picker" from "2" to "0". Credit to this post that clued me in.

I really hope this saves someone else 2 days of hair pulling and I would appreciate advice from someone more knowledgeable than me on:

  • Why this fixed the problem
  • Whether I should be opening a bug report either against Firefox, or Ubuntu
  • Whether I should also be changing "widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal.mime-handler" and "widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal.settings", both are currently set to "2"

I had originally posted my issue on /r/firefox (https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/w4jwy8/right_click_copy_image_in_windows_11_pastes_with/) and was recommended that I post it here:

Hey everyone. I am running Windows 11 Home on my PC and have Firefox completely updated. Lately, when I use the Windows "Copy image" function, then paste that image in Firefox, the image comes out with a blue tint.

For example, I wanted to share this funny image from r/minnesota https://www.reddit.com/r/minnesota/comments/w4iaun/it_was_bring_anything_on_a_leash_day_at_the_st/ But when I paste the image (Attachment is how the image looks after pasting back into Firefox), the image is blue tinted.

I tested to see if this was just a Windows issue, but there is no blue tint if I paste the image into Word, Paint, or any other tool besides Firefox.

In firefox, protection settings are "custom" but map very closely to Strict. I am running the following addons:

Bitwarden uBlock Origin NoScript Facebook Container

Troubleshooting steps:

1. Restarted Windows, no change. 2. Copied image to a program outside of Firefox from Firefox, no blue tint 3. Created a new user profile in about:profiles, blue tint persists when copying into Firefox
