For more than a month, each day when get my emails from my Comcast account, one or more (usually more) of the messages is dated 1/8/2024 and displays the time 6:58 AM. Today I got 6 more. At first, I just deleted them. Then I saved several in a folder and looked at the sender addresses. There were lots of different addresses but, also, some of the addresses were the source of more than one email. I plan on creating a filter to junk any future ones as they come in. I’m posting this primarily out of curiosity. Does someone have an idea of what’s happening? Of what’s causing this 1/8/2024 happening? Thanks.

Using Thunderbird 115.6.0 (64-bit) in Linux Mint MATE 21.3.

Settings|General|"Save files to is" not selected ("Always ask me where to save files" is.) "Desktop" is shown, greyed out.

Note that Settings|General, for Content Types mentioning PDF, the setting is to use Document Viewer (xreader).

Process:

1) Create new e-mail. 2) Add PDF attachment. 3) Double click on the attachment to view.

It opens in Firefox Web browser, instead of in the system's default Document Viewer.

This also creates an empty <random>.html.part file in the Desktop.

Note that viewing a PDF attachment in an incoming e-mail works fine.

It seems there are two problems: The PDF does not open in the Document Viewer, and an empty file is left behind.

The process used to work quite some time ago (many months, anyway) - not sure when.

Any ideas?

I've been hoping it would get better over the years but it's been a very long time and things never got better so I'm wondering why is the "new"(I think it's been close to 7 years now) addon is so restrictive?

I can't live without tab grouping and it's impossible to do the way I like with this new addon system and none of the many alternative are as good so it's been keeping me away from firefox since the change.

Is there a reason it's kept that way? I'd really like to come back to firefox because I'm sick of chrome and the smaller browsers have many compatibility issues because website ignore them but as long as the addon system remain as-is, I just can't.

PDFs are shown as empty pages after suspend/resume on linux

Hello, I'm using a document management system (SeedDMS for those who know) through Firefox 122.0.1 (64-bit, canonical 1.0, downloaded from packages.ubuntu.com for focal, running on Debian Bookworm, kernel 6.1.0-17-amd64/Debian 6.1.69-1 x86_64, X.Org X Server 1.21.1.7, KDE Plasma 5.27.5, KDE Framework 5.103.0, QT 5.15.8, i7-5820K, GeForce GTX 1070).

Within this document management system pdf.js (v4.0.379) is being used to preview/view PDF Documents. After starting Firefox the PDF view inside the DMS works fine until I suspend (to memory) and resume my machine. Regular HTML-content looks fine but the resumed DMS session shows only blank (all white) Pages inside the PDF view. Changing to a different PDF file doesn't help. The number and size of these pages is presented correctly. I can even select and copy (invisible) text from these blank PDF pages. The problem applies to all PDFs, whether they're single or multi paged, have images inside them (like with PDFs from a scanner) or not, etc. Reloading the page/closing reopening the affected browser window doesn't help, i.e. the problem persists.

I recently found out, that this also applies to PDF files directly opened inside Firefox (which also seems to use pdf.js as a PDF viewer), that is, this is not related to a specific site like my DMS.

The problem always persists until I kill Firefox and start it over.

Pdf.js seems to use a canvas inside a div (see screenshots attached) to draw the visual PDF content and another div to make the text layer selectable/searchable etc. I don't know what's happening to canvases on a system suspend/resume cycle in Firefox on Linux, but I suspect that's where the problem originates from.

This problem already affected older versions of Firefox and pdf.js.

Please let me know, if you need further information from my side to investigate that issue.

Thanks a lot!

If you type "% [search term]" in your search bar, it will try to search your existing tabs for any tabs that fit the criteria. The problem is, firefox is making odd decisions on what to display in the search results. I was under the impression that Firefox would prioritize the most frequently used tabs in the search results, but this no longer appears to be true, or the criteria used is more complex than that.

As an example, in the attached screenshot, i am searching for tabs with the keyword "Stellaris". But for some reason, Firefox refuses to show me any reddit tabs with "Stellaris" in them, and is instead showing a list of tabs that are much less frequently used.

Is there any way to get the search results to prioritize the most frequently used tabs, change what shows up in the search results, etc? I know i can type "stellaris reddit" to narrow down the search results, but i would prefer that the search results prioritize the msot frequently used tabs.

Using Firefox 115.7 ESR btw.

Hi,

I recently installed a CalDAV server at my workplace to connect to in the Thunderbird calendar, as we all already use Thunderbird for e-mail.

If I create a meeting in the calendar and invite everyone else, they all get an email invite with the name, time & place of meeting etc.. And at the top of the email, just below the title of the email, there is a purple bar with boxes saying "Accept", "Tentative", "Deny" and "More" (or something synonymous, I have it in Swedish).

For one employee that purple bar with the "Accept"-box does not appear, and the only way for him to get the meeting to his calendar is by downloading the "invite.ics" file that is attached and importing it afterwards.

I have added two screenshots showing what I mean. One with the Accept, Deny etc. and the one person's e-mail that doesn't have the boxes.


We have checked his settings without finding anything that seems wrong in first glance. I have checked the caldav user account but the user account has the same settings as the others. Thunderbird is updated to the latest version (115.7.0, same as I use and it works for me).

When he invites people to a meeting they all get the invite correctly, so nothing is wrong when he creates a meeting invitation, only when he recieves an invite.

What could be wrong? Is there a setting he might've activated/deactivated in Thunderbird that we missed when looking or could there be something else we have thought of?

Thanks, Tim

Twice withing the past 4/5 days I have (purely by chance) noticed an email - for which I had been waiting - on the list of five messages. (bottom right corner) waiting to be added to my inbox. When I went to read the messages only four new ones were there - the one I was waiting for, seen on the 'about to be downloaded' list - was missing. My wife informed me that she had experience a similar problem, eventually solved by locating the email furthe back in history, now attached to another email, and identified by some unexplained arrows. I went in search of similar arrows and found my missing email now attached to an earlier title.

What on earth is the purpose of this? If I hadn't spotted the email as I did and as it didn't appear as a recent addition in the inbox, I could not have known it had been sent to me. After the glimpse l'd had of if I emailed the sender to check that he'd sent it. He was puzzled as to why I hadn't replied.

I'm a long way from being an expert - scarcely competent in fact - in computing matters, but I am capable of filing my own mail. Please can Thunderbird leave it to me in future?

I've tried a few addons that download website images but the website I go to has thumbnails that are linked to larger jpg's and addons I've used won't download the linked jpg's. I used "Download all images" addon which has a "Deep Search Option" and filters for downloading linked images but I can't get it to work. I couldn't figure out how to use the filters. I read about another addon called "download-links" that can search linked images and I might give it a try. Any suggestions? Has anyone tried "Download all images" addon?
