Hi,

For few days I'm having this overlay on firefox and I can't get rid off it. It annoys me to see it but on top of that the play/pause keys of my keyboard and mouse interfere with firefox. Therefore if I pause Spotify a video on Firefox will play.

Any idea ? =/

Thunderbird Beta 82.0b2 Windows 10-Pro

Need clarification about the multiple SMTP servers in my T-Bird installation?

Also, why does one "have" to be noted as the "default"?

Do each of the e-mail accounts choose their own SMTP server when being used or are all e-mails sent from the "default" server?

Just seeking to better understand.

Cheers,

Nolan K. N. Texas

Every time I try to do something like save a password on Firefox, this thing pops up saying I need to change password. I proceed to type in a new password and then click okay, like you're supposed to. But then it pops up with a message saying, "Unable to change password" it gives no reason why though. Can anyone tell me how to fix this? It's getting really annoying and I can't save any passwords. Thanks!

Hello,

It's been a while since the release date of chromecast on browsers.. Today, year 2020, all the chromium based browsers add chromecast (Edge, brave, chrome, etc..). My favorite browser is firefox, and i am forced to use a chromium based browser to cast to my androidTV's. Sometimes i think to leave this browser and use a chromium based all the time.

I searched and installed chromecast extension to firefox and nothing works to me, and they are not user frindly as chromecast extension on chrome.

Can you tell me if you even think in add a chromecast extension in firefox by default?

Thanks,

After a recent update (not sure which one, my current version: 68.12.1 (32-bit) ), I started noticing that on each computer reboot (which using Windows 10, I need pretty regularly, because of updates) that all but a few email tabs that I kept open (very old emails, btw) are no longer kept open. This feature is pretty important to me to allow me to review emails then if necessary reply when I can get to it. Typically, there are anywhere from 10 - 30 emails that are left open. The problem being is that I "lose" the email, because I cannot remember and locating the email in my inbox become difficult as that inbox accumulates more email.

Any fixes for this issue? Thank you, Chuck Belanger

Running 81.0+build2-0ubuntu0.20.04.1 as you can see in the uploaded screenshot images parts of the statistics are not easily seen because they're overwritten. I've uploaded three screenshots, one from Firefox, one from Google Chrome and one from Brave. I've tried adjusting the font size and have checked 'allow pages to chose their own fonts' to no avail.

Cannot change my printer to print Thunderbiord messages

I have 2 printers connected to my Windows 10 PC - a Lexmark color printer and a HP LaserJet Pro black & white printer. My default printer in the Windows 10 "Devices and Printers," is established as my HP LaserJet, and this works for all my applications except Thunderbird.

For some reason, Thunderbird has locked on to my color printer and always shows this as my default printer when I'm printing a message within TBird; I have to manually change it each time.

I've checked the TBird .ini files to see if a setting is over-ruling the Windows 10 default but cannot find anything which would cause this problem.

Any suggestion would be gratefully received.

Dave.
