  • When I try to print a webpage using Firefox, the page enlarges 4x and therefore I only get 1/4 of the webpage on an 8.5 x 11 sheet. If I change my browser to Chrome or IE, it prints correctly. If I scroll to the bottom of the Firefox Print Dialog window and select "Print using system dialog" it also works correctly.
  • I have the zoom set to 100 and the Print Dialog paper size set to Letter, It is set to print to page width, I tried it with Scale 100 but it didn't help. I also went to about: config and checked that the paper size and scaling were set to 1.
  • The the picture of the Print Preview looks exactly like should be when printed, but when it is sent to the Lexmark S505 printer the size is too large.
Since I print 50-100 individual webpages a week, I cannot use Firefox if this can't be corrected.

Thanks, Randall Win7 Pro

It would appear that when occasionally deleting emails in quick succession from the (Unified) Inbox using the "Del" key on the keyboard, that an invalid email will appear attached to one of the email accounts attached to the emails being deleted.

The email that appears always has the same date (1st Jan 1970, 10am), but no subject. (as pictured in attachment)

The invalid email cannot be deleted, any attempt to do so results in the following email in the Inbox to be deleted instead.

The aforementioned email will disappear after Thunderbird is restarted.

… a sync hiccup maybe?

I have a custom Nextcloud server setup with DAV calendars. With the new Thunderbird 91, whenever I try to add the new calendar, a modal with the Google sign-in page appears. I close that, enter the password in the next pop-up, and the calendar is eventually listed, but nothing gets synced. If I try to create an event, an error is shown saying that the calendar might be read-only , and it gets marked RO after that.

I tried to create a fictious email account having the same domain (@xyz.com) as my NC calendar, and to my surprise it detected it as a Google email server (supposedly GSuite) based on ISP DB, although there are no email services running on it and the ports are closed.

So the question is, why does TB detect custom DAV calendars as Google's and opens the login modal? Is there any way to turn off this detection for calendars? Any workaround for this issue?

I used to like Firefox, but the recent change to how tabs work have rendered it all but unusable on IOS for me.

I have lots of tabs open, for lots of reasons. But unlike before, when I open the tab view, I always get transported up to the top, regardless of where I was. This significantly degrades the tabs experience, to the point where I find myself switching to a different browser more and more. But this too is untenable; I find that more and more sites don't work at all in Safari, and I am uncomfortable with sharing more of my online experience with Google. Of course, there are more browsers still, but splitting my browsing across more browsers is distracting and introduces new logistical problems.

Also, used to be I could open a tab and it would pop up next to the current tab, or at least vaguely nearby. Now, since a few weeks back, instead I find that new tabs appear somewhere 2/3 down the list of tabs; I could live with this if it was an occasional annoyance, like it used to be, but now, I am basically always in the wrong place.

Googling for a bit, I understand that tabs on mobile were overhauled a few weeks ago. But unfortunately, this basically wrecked Firefox for me. Can we please get the old behavior back, at least as an option?

Is there a configuration option I need to know about, or a bug report I can sign up to follow?

A recent unwanted Firefox for Android automatic update has replaced all the open tabs and history with a different set of tabs and history. The tabs and history I had before the automatic update are now gone and in their place are a set of tabs which I had in a previous install of Firefox on the same device, but some time ago.

Some of the tabs I had open in the session before were important (reminders, notes for things, pages I needed to look at for various reasons, etc.).

Any ideas how I can get this session back?

Some ideas:

How do I find out the version of Firefox that was installed prior to the automatic update, for the purpose of reverting to it and hoping the previous tabs are there?

Is it possible that data for two Firefox installations are on the phone, even though only one installation is listed? This must be the case with histories and tabs because a bunch of old tabs and an old history have appeared along with the automatic update. Any idea where this data is stored with Firefox Android?

I'm not too worried about the history. I had that synced anyway. The open tabs is the main thing.

Thanks for any help.

PS. Any other users who wish to avoid this happening please note, automatic updates can be turned off in the google play store app, in settings. You can then backup your tabs if and when you wish to update Firefox.

Home page icon shows up on the toolbar, ONLY ON THE HOME PAGE. Yes, I have Firefox set up to show home page icon for a NEW tab/window, and this works fine. But when I use one of these windows to go to another url, the icon disappears. The purpose of a Home Page is something you can return to easily from any other url. Now, to get back to the Home Page, I HAVE TO CREATE another tab, and then close that previous tab (because I no longer need it).

This is a bug, on a Mac Air M1 laptop on OS11.3.1, running FF 91.3.0esr. It's also an annoyance.

I was previously using Outlook 2017 to manage my 8-10 email accounts at any given time, however due to the constant problems with their software and their refusal to ever fix any major bugs, I decided to give Thunderbird a shot several months ago. So far, it has been awesome and issue free, except the bug I am reporting today that has been happening for the last month or two.

For some reason, every day, Thunderbird brings back deleted spam messages, or is mislabeling things. I am not sure which is happening because the messages it brings back are dated up to 10 months old, and are the same set of around 20 messages, but the actual providers site marks the emails as new.

For example, I have one sitting in the Inbox currently on Thunderbird which is dated: 7/6/2021 2:20AM On the providers site, it's instead dated: 11/20/2021 1:14PM

Thunderbird only does this with the specific email provider account, and only with spam messages.

Provider is: Comcast / Xfinity

Thunderbird seems to be the more 'accurate' date on the message as these appear to be bounce spam and Thunderbird shows the originating date from the initial bounce/send. For example, the message header is as follows for the current spam email sitting in the box:

``` Return-Path: <r.werby@interestinganimals.net> Delivered-To: [removed_for_privacy] Received: from dovdir1-asa-04o.email.comcast.net ([69.252.207.21]) by dovback1-asa-15o.email.comcast.net with LMTP id CGzMADVlmWHIQAAAc6Bu1w (envelope-from <r.werby@interestinganimals.net>) for <[removed_for_privacy]>; Sat, 20 Nov 2021 21:14:29 +0000 Received: from dovpxy-hoc-10o.email.comcast.net ([69.252.207.21]) by dovdir1-asa-04o.email.comcast.net with LMTP id SEeZOzRlmWG9CQAAVBHWrQ (envelope-from <r.werby@interestinganimals.net>) for <[removed_for_privacy]>; Sat, 20 Nov 2021 21:14:28 +0000 Received: from resimta-ch2-01v.sys.comcast.net ([69.252.207.21]) (using TLSv1.2 with cipher ECDHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384 (256/256 bits)) by dovpxy-hoc-10o.email.comcast.net with LMTPS id wFJpFTRlmWGSWgAA2puqXg (envelope-from <r.werby@interestinganimals.net>) for <[removed_for_privacy]>; Sat, 20 Nov 2021 21:14:28 +0000 Received: from qkPtQ.us-smtp-delivery-137.mimecast.com ([104.144.139.105]) by resimta-ch2-01v.sys.comcast.net with ESMTP id oXeTmRVivn2aLoXgpmov0y; Sat, 20 Nov 2021 21:14:28 +0000 X-CAA-SPAM: F00000 X-Xfinity-VAAS: [removed_for_privacy] X-Xfinity-CCat: bounce X-Xfinity-VMeta: sc=10000.00;st=bounce X-Xfinity-Message-Heuristics: IPv6:N;TLS=1;SPF=0;DMARC= Received: from compute1.internal (compute1.nyi.internal [207.200.3.90]) by sloti42n40 (Cyrus 3.5.0-alpha0-531-g1160beca77-fm-20210705.001-g1160beca) with LMTPA; Tue, 06 Jul 2021 05:20:28 -0400 (EDT) Date: Tue, 06 Jul 2021 05:20:28 -0400 (EDT) From: Warby Parker <r.werby@interestinganimals.net> Subject: Unlock your special offer To: [removed_for_privacy] ```

I'm not sure if this is brand new sends abusing bouncing, or if it's Thunderbird bringing them back since it's the same ~20 messages every day.

Hi All,

I use FF 94.0.1 on Windows 10 Pro. I have found that disabled elements aren't shown with a grey background anymore. You still can't click on them but they look like an enabled element.

Enabled elements show with the grey background but are clickable.

Seems like the reverse from what it should be? I'm talking about select elements in this case.


Thanks for any help,

I know that cookies are stored in a SQLITE database. I use a Linux distro and as per the documentation I viewed the cookie file at location '~/.mozilla/firefox/PROFILE_FOLDER/cookies.sqlite' and I can view all the contents as expected.'

However, these two things are bugging me if someone can please help me:

(i) SQLITE isn't a server connected database (it just offers minimal functionality) and since cookies are something accessed by server side from http headers with every request how does that work out?

(ii) Session storage key value pairs are stored in '~/.mozilla/firefox/PROFILE_FOLDER/webappsstore.sqlite' however, when I create session storage key value pairs and without closing the tab if I try viewing the session key; I can't find the key value pairs. I tried with Local storage and it works however with session storage it does not show me the key value pair in database.
