Hello, i am IT admin / dev for a company running FF currently v68.2.0esr 32-bit on approx. 1000 PCs, and we have a problem with downloading files from on-premises hosting portal (Sysaid). File names get corrupted on download (but this doesn't happen in Safari, Edge or IE as far as i tested) so i thought i should ask here because i want my company to stay with FF as everything else works fine (Java web extensions for Oracle services, security, ease-of-use, translations etc....). So, file named:

Uvoz_baza_v_ORAPACK_za_Ameriko_20.02.2020_-_RP0_Unior_kode.XLSX

Gets downloaded as:

%3D%3FUTF-8%3FB%3FVXZvel9iYXphX3ZfT1JBUEFDS196YV9BbWVyaWtvXzIwLjAyLjIwMjBfLV9SUDBfVW5pb3Jfa29kZS54bHN4%3F%3D

... and of course Windows doesn't know what to do with it.. I can rename it, and give it proper extension then i can open it, so contents are not corrupted. If i download it multiple times, name stays the same but gives (1), then (2) then... at the end of the string.

Any help is greatly appreciated as switching to another browser is not really an easy task here.. Thanks!

I have been using Comodo's Ice Dragon for many years but, as all development stopped after Firefox v65, I now wish to go back to Firefox, however I need all my open tabs from Ice Dragon in this current version of Firefox v76. Both browsers are synced and indeed CID's tabs do appear in my Synced tabs menu but I prefer to have them on the top as open tabs. Is there a way to do that other than by opening them one at a time please?

Hi there,

Only with Firefox, Pinterest shows up blank: [https://i.imgur.com/huNHSI0.png]

However, what works is: Restarting with add-ons disabled and then restarting again with addons enabled: [https://i.imgur.com/6HMYXO7.png] But after closing and opening that Firefox, the blank returns.

Other things I have tried are: clearing cache, disabling VPN, disabling antivirus || They all lead to the blank

My target is to open Pinterest with Firefox without the blank and without requiring the 2x restart.

Please advise, thanks.

Although firefox has simple UI it lacks some of the important features which is present in other browsers-. Please consider adding them in future soon.

1. Pull down to refresh.

2. Auto password generator similar to desktop version

3. More security info about the site such as certificate expiry date , cipher suite details.

4. Save as PDF the webpage

5. Customize the 3 dot menu in a horizontal grid layout similar to yandex to accomodate more items in an elegant way

6. Add option to change webview. I don't like your gecko webview because for app based url it never opens the url in the app when viewed in webview unlike chrome webview which immediately open the link in respective app on clicking it inside the webview page.

I was recently trying the yandex browser and it's UI and browsing experience is way more advanced than any android browser. Particularly the faster page load due to opera turbo and eye pleasing UI and layout. Is it possible to add opera turbo feature in firefox or a similar technology?

The 3 dot menu can be customised like yandex in a horizontal grid layout to accomodate more items. here the list is vertical and it gets longer with more add ons.(adding yandex layout screenshot)

I'm fairly certain I discovered what's going on with the Firefox sync. It's not that it isn't working properly, it's that the mobile website you're viewing is a different address than the desktop site. For example, if I go to Kohl's on my desktop, the address is https://www.kohls.com. If I visit the site on mobile,it's https://m.kohls.com. Apparently the two sites are also entirely different, in that your desktop credentials won't work with the mobile site. Why that is I do not know, but this is not the first time I've discovered this problem with this, as well as other websites. The conclusion here is that this is not a Firefox problem, but rather a problem between some disparate websites which are not properly sharing login information between the desktop and mobile versions, and so if you run into this issue the only thing you can do is contact the owner of the website to let them know. It's also possible that this is simply a security feature and that you have to authorize mobile access, but of course the only way to find out is to ask. Enjoy the rest of your memorial day weekend.

Hi Folks, I have different mail accounts - one at GMX and one at google. However - my main e-mail address is the GMX address and couldn't be changed to gmail so easyly. But - as calendar I'll only use my gmail calendar. If I get a invitation on my GMX account, the calendar entry will be stored also in GMX and I am not able to change the calendar, that's used. If I crate a own event, I am able to select the account to be used and I can change the account & calendar for an existing event entry later on. So - I'd like to define the gmail calendar to be used also for invitations that are coming via my GMX account - or to change the calendar later on exactly as it works for own created events. Is there a solution to do that? If not, is it planned or can it be foreseen for the future? Thanks in advance! Uwe.

Just a quick question. I have Thunderbird on my PC and want to mirror it onto my laptop so I can get mail while away from my computer.

I installed it on my laptop and put in my mail client details and it started to download all the mail. But I realized it wasn't being sorted so I needed my filters etc. So I then looked at the tutorial for migrating mail accounts. It shows to go to the profile folder and to a couple levels up to backup that folder.

The question is, on my PC the folder isn't in roaming it's in C:\Users\Public\mymailaccount.thunderbird

But on my laptop, it's in the usual:\ C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\8f50xn5c.default-release

Should I just copy the folder from Public (PC) to Roaming (Laptop)? why isn't it in the Roaming folder though?

Thanks

Recently the web push notifications got a popup UI that is really disturbing. Show up on all desktops etc., it interrupts me in what I’m doing. I really very strongly dislike this change.

I would like to revert to how it was before (pre-76.0 ? Not sure exactly which version): - notifications get sent to my desktop/OS’s notification center (running OpenSuse + KDE), - no popup is displayed when a notification is triggered.

That way: - notifications will respect the OS « do not disturb » mode, - notifications get shown through a unified UI for all applications, - I can pick how « interrupting » I want each notification to be, - In particular I can focus while on my computer without being interrupted, and poll the notifications occasionally.

Is there a way (maybe a about:config option) to keep notifications but disable the popup behaviour?

As much as I do love Thunderbird over MS, I have been putting up with two issues, which at times I rethink MS.

Upon opening Thunderbird to a full window, very occasionally I open an email and my full window retreats to a minimised window. To click on the window to maximise, it takes a couple of times before maximising.

One other issue is when I single-click on a email, it opens as if I had done a double-click. This can be most distressing when all I want to do is to select and delete.

I do hope that my brain has relayed the message to my fingers for someone to understand.

Have a Happy Thunderbird kind of Day!

I have lost, or rather forgotten my Main Password for Thunderbird :(

It usually came out automatically from my fingers, but now - after several months away from my laptop and PC only using my Samsung mobile, it is totally out of my head and I have never written it down. Does anyone have a suggestion for a solution so I again can access my mail acounts and adress books and of course continue use of Thunderbird?

Hello, In Ubuntu 20.04 (Firefox 76), there is this strange bug. Whenever I reboot/shutdown and start my computer, and after login when I open Firefox (after bootup), the previous session (i.e. the session which was present at the time of reboot) will be opened at the same ubuntu workspace location.

Eg. I had 3 tabs opened in workspace 2 and I shutdown my system. Then I again boot into Ubuntu and open firefox (in the default workspace aka workspace 1), the browser will resume its previous state i.e. it will open in the workspace 2 with the 3 tabs open. So this is like a state restore.

I have disabled Restore Previous Session in the "Startup" section of preferences.

Whenever I play any video in firefox (version 75.0, 64 bit) the video is muted for the first two seconds. Then the sound comes back, and I have to rewind to listen to see what I missed. I'm not sure when exactly this started, but I think it was like this for about a month. Maybe two. I searched for the solution in DuckDuckGo, but couldn't find anything. I did turn off fade-in and fade-out effects but that did not help.

I feel it is some kind of option to avoid sudden audio pop-ins or something. But so far I couldn't find anything relevant in about:config or the browser options.

I am finding it impossible to access the following website from within a private window or with Firefox set to Never remember history...

https://groceries.asda.com/

I see the cookie warning, the top banner of the page and a spinning green circle.

The website operates as expected on my PC with Chrome in incognito mode.

Similarly, the same issue occurs with Firefox Focus on my Android phone, but not with In Browser or Dolphin Zero.

This is no deal breaker for me but I am curious about what may be causing it to happen.
