Every time I open Mozilla browser, it crashes right after it opens.

This only started happening since recently. Before this, I haven't faced this issue while using this browser for year(s)

I have failed to resolve the issue with the following methods:

  • Updated Firefox
  • Tried to use Troubleshoot Mode (crash still happens)
  • Uninstalled Firefox, deleted additional files and re-installed
  • Did Refresh

Other browsers are working fine

I am using Razer Blade RTX 2070 Max Q, VR Ready Graphics (8GB GDDR6 VRAM) 10th Gen Intel Core i7-10750H Processor 6 Cores/12 Threads, up to 5.0GHz

Why wont a search show emails from a person in my emails? There is obviously a glitch, I have tried the filters, the only emails that show up are in the sent folder, even if I select "to me". I don't want to have to do a manual search through a thousand emails to find this dude.

I'm not sure where to put this post. Sorry.

I don't have a lot of internal hard drive space and want to have Thunderbird store emails to an external hard drive. So, I have a few questions about this.

Q1: How do I do this? I saw a procedure on a non-Mozilla site and it seemed questionable to me. So I thought it would be best to get the procedure from here

Q2: When I move the files (not copying them) will this impact the emails online (Gmail and Yahoo)? I don't want to accidentally delete them from the server

Q3: I am concerned about the following scenario: I tell Thunderbird to use the external drive. Thunderbird starts to download emails to the external drive. What happens to the emails that are on the internal drive? does Thunderbird move them to the external drive? Or will I have to move them manually? Can I safely move email folders on top of folders of the same name without messing anything up? (I'm concerned that Thunderbird would not know that a previously downloaded folder exists and would start to download it in the new spot. So when I move the folders from the old spot to the new spot, it would overlay the new copy and I don't want that to mess anything up)

I hope my questions make sense. I'm not always clear about how I ask things

I just updated Thunderbird. So, I'm running the latest version. I'm using Windows 10 (old computer)

Thank you MistWing

I have spent hundreds of hours over the years trying to figure out how to hell to suggest words to the default firefox dictionaries. I don't mean weird words, words used constantly in scientific settings. It is infuriating. I am willing to take on this task if no one else is. How do I join the effort?!? I have 20 years experience at a fortune 500 company. Google is worthless these days.

All items except but the top one (privacy) in the right-side menu in vimeo are partially hidden and so not fully functional. This problem does not occur in Microsoft Edge, and so it evidently is a Firefox problem. My system: AMD 3900X Running Windows 10 Home, Nvidia GTX950 graphics card, 32 GB memory, The image is a reduced-size screenshot from a 1920 x 1080 monitor. Adjusting the width of the window for Friefox has no effect on the problem.

Many complex websites that had no problem till the latest version of Firefox don't load any more with the newest version. If this goes on like this I have to change my browser. I used Firefox now for many years but it looks like I have to change, as there are no problems with other web browsers (Opera, Edge, Chrome, etc).

Aren't there a lot of feedbacks like mine?

SIncerely, Franz

I use Firefox for Mac. Often when I want to click on a link or complete an on-line form, a long list of unwanted suggestions pops up and orevents me doing this. Only by hitting Escape can I get control back.

By the way, I don't want any solution which involves clearing the cache, as I value that help.

Hello, while using the Firefox browser links, commands and selecting of tabs keep being activated by simply hovering over. Is there a way to disable that? I have it disabled on my computer commands and it only happens on Firefox.

It’s driving me nuts and in some cases it has fired up actions that could be problematic like prompting emails to send etc.
