I was trying different extensions, then, when I went to remove them, I couldn't. When I click on the 3 dots for any extension, nothing happens, no dropdown. I can enable and disable them, but I'm not even sure they work when enabled. I added "autoarchivereloaded" and even though a button for it it showed up it never did do what it was supposed to, and that is another one I can't remove.

This is a web developer question so sorry if it doesn't belong here but I've tried search everywhere else.

Is it possible to get a devices orientation from magnetic north of firefox mobile? I can get this value for every other major browser, but not FireFox Mobile. - DeviceOrientationEvent.webkitCompassHeading is not supported. - DeviceOrientationEvent.absolute is false so the alpha is not set to north. - GeolocationCoordinates.heading is not useful. - Magnetometer is not supported.

This is for a web based 3D wayfinding mobile page I'm developing for a university to help staff and students navigate campuses, and having the 3D map on the page orientate with the device really helps.

Running Firefox 82.0.3 on MacOS 11.0.1 (Big Sur) -

If I go to full screen mode with Firefox, and then let my cursor get to close to the top of the window, it activates the dop-down of the menu bar. That's supposed to happen. But the bar is blank (the menu bar items appear above it), and hides tabs. And sliding my cursor away, the bar does not go away. Stuck. And can't resize Facebook to regular view to get rid of it. Need to close it and start over.

Thoughts?

Since a recent update on thunderbird, staff at my company are unable to add external email addresses to the address book. Prior to the update external email addresses that are constantly been used are pre-saved and usually come up with auto-complete or it can be added to the persons address book. We don't have that issue with internal email addresses. At the moment staff would have to manually type external email addresses each time they want to send an email to that address.

I am using TB 78.7.1 64bit on Linux Mint 20 and until recently it worked perfectly. It opened with the Inbox page just as I like it to do. Suddenly it has started to give me a flash of the Inbox immediately followed by the Preferences page. Changing the 'When TB starts ...' has no effect. Still preferences. I always sign off from the Inbox page so it should open there, but no. Can anyone help? Infuriating. I don't think I'm the only one, but I haven't been able to find a way out of this.

This is regarding Thunderbird 78.10.0 (64-bit) in Mac OS 11.2.3 Big Sur. I've been having a very annoying problem in TB for months now when I reply to an email that I originally sent, someone replied and I CANNOT write them back as this message shows up every time: ALERT An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded: 5.7.0 Authentication Required. Learn more at...

This happens for individual recipients and groups. The ONLY workaround I have found is to start a new email, copy the subject and paste, copy the contents and paste, but actually recently it DOES NOT let me do even that! I have to copy only parts at a time, going back and forth. Then I have to re-enter all of the recipients in one at a time, and sometimes it is a long list. So you can see this is very tedious and time consuming and extremely frustrating. Does anyone else have this problem? Does anyone have a solution? Many of my emails involve a dialog requiring back and forth conversation. Thank you so much for any tips! PS I have been using ethernet only sometimes lately, I just turned wifi on and my message sent but don't know if this is consistent, and still would like to be able to use TB properly without having to connect to WiFi.

Hello everyone,

I am a suscriber of an association newsletter and sometimes they ask us to write someone an e-mail. They have already written it, so there is just a button/link in the newsletter to click, and the pre-filled mail window opens and we just have to send it.

But since a few months now I can't open those links. And I don't know why. When I try, a new tab opens but it loads indefinitely. Here are some screens of what I see (I'm French, so my Thunderbird is set to my language).

I stay available for further infos if needed. Thank you.

I'm using latest version Thunderbird 78.10 and for the last 3 days have been unable to download my mail from my domain POP3 server. As soon as TB attempts to download mail I get the message: "Connection to server pop3.mydomain was reset". No mail is downloaded to TB. I’ve checked my domain webmail Inbox and all the mail is sitting there, but I can’t download them to my TB mail program. This problem does not occur with the Outlook mail program on my other computer, nor on my iPhone. All my mail downloads normally in those other mail programs. I've tried all the TB fixes suggested in the forums, but none of them have solved the problem: - I’ve uninstalled ESET anti-virus on my computer; - I’ve reduced the security.tls.version.min value from 3 to 1 in Config Editor under Options; - My Connection Security Setting is NONE; - My ISP email host technicians have uninstalled and re-installed my email address. Despite all this Thunderbird version 78.10 refuses to download my mail. My ISP email technicians tell me that this problem is unique to Thunderbird. Does anyone have any idea how I can get Thunderbird 78.10 to download my mail?

Hi, I'm having this issue for sometime now and I can't find a reason why this is happening. I have Windows 10 Pro configured to use Dark Mode, and Thunderbird set to use the system's color theme.

Some of the emails listed in my inbox appear in black text against a dark background, making them virtually unreadable (check attached screenshot).

Also, I do not have any high contrast settings enabled in the Windows settings and I've tried switching options in Thunderbird's color settings but those didn't make any relevant change. Does anyone have

I've been using Thunderbird for many, many years and have now encountered this situation 2 or 3 times. Mysteriously, on rare occasion, the search boxes on the Search page disappear!! I mean the boxes that allow you to select "Subject" or "From" or "Body" etc etc and then supply the search criteria. None of these boxes appear, just a big empty blank box. Has ANYBODY else EVER encountered this? And, if so, what causes it, and what fixes it??? Thank you.

Hey there,

I can not log into the Firefox Addons website at https://addons.mozilla.org

- I click on the "Register or log in" link at the upper right corner.

- It opens a page with my email address and a blue button ton log in (picture 1)

- When I click that blue button, it takes me to the second page where I'm asked to enable 2 step authentication (picture 2)

I don't want to enable 2FA for Firefox Addons website and I don't want to download a third party app for this, I just want to be able to log in to the website.

If I click the "cancel" link (at the bottom), it brings me back from where I was and still not logged in

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

I've been using Firefox when it was sort of called Netscape Navigator and its Mozilla's companion mail client - Thunderbird.

So it was a bit annoying (but easily corrected, of course) that Mozilla would undercut it's own products by changing the Thunderbird as the default mail client in favor of something that resembles Microsoft - after a couple of decades of use.

Just noting

Both my PCs were downloading from you tube perfectly, until two days ago, when the download button on both PCs disappeared, almost at the same time. As the people at Video Droid do not have an answer, I must assume the problem lies with Firefox. I hope we are not returning to the days when every update from Mozilla fucked up. Kindly explain how I can fix this mess, or how I can backdate to an earlier Firefox that worked properly. To be quite honest with you, I’m not the slightest bit interested in your new smart arse add ons, and tricks, all I want is a browser that works for me, not one that loses me days working time because your programmers can’t get their shit together.

There used to be header and footer settings in the older page setup option for date/time, page of page, etc.

Now you have to change where you want this in the about:config. Would be nice if this option was in the print settings dialogue.

This is more of a request than an issue. As I was able to change how I wanted the pages to print using the about:config method and setting up the header and footer there.
