Since FF 69 the starting (not the loading!) of websites frequently lasts more than 10 seconds under Xubuntu. The tab remains empty during this waiting time, while no sign of the loading process can be seen: The tab header shows no title, only the URL. The animated loading icon of the tab header is not shown. The status bar shows no activity. For about 5 to 20 seconds it looks like the tab is frozen. (See hardcopy.) This phenomenon occurs irregularly, but repeatedly, approximately with 10-20 percent of all calls, regardless of the requested URLs. It typically occurs piled within a random period, that lasts between a some seconds and several minutes. It also happens in safe mode, regardless of the used profile (even an unmodified new profile) and both in private an non-private windows. As far as I can judge, the troubleshooting Information shows no abnormalities. There are no issues with the internet connection. I've been using Firefox trouble-free for more than 10 years, but this phenomenon only occurred since Firefox 69.0.

The last 2 days im getting the do you want to leave this page warning box on every single page. When clicking a link/refreshing or closing the browser.

I dont have to have entered any info in a dialog box or do anything except load a page, and it just keeps coming up. Now its started affecting making a payment online as i have to choose leave this page for every step through a payment process which has messed up some payments.

Why is it suddenly popping up on untouched pages all the time and how the hell can i get rid of it?

Ive not changed any settings recently. And i dont want to start adding scripts to stop it.

When sending emails, using my Cox IP, I get the following error message:

An error occurred while sending mail: The mail server sent an incorrect greeting: cxr-obgw-6003a.stratus.cloudmark.com cmsmtp 193.36.225.118 blocked. Refer to Error Codes section at https://www.cox.com/residential/support/email-error-codes.html for more information. AUP#CXDNS.

I have recently "upgraded" to Win10 but my email has been working fine, even after the "upgrade". I have tried several of the suggestions provided online, including some from Thunderbird, all to no avail.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks, Larry

Evert time I open an enclosure or a link in an e-mail, Foxfire automatically sends it to a download rather than letting me view it. This is extremely annoying. I understand that this procedure may be necessary for e-mails from folks I don't know, and I could opt out for this option. But I should be able to make that determination and particularly with e-mail from people I know. i used to get a notice that asked me if I wanted to download the item, but that never happens any more. How can I fix this to operate as it used to? Thanks for the help. Bill

Hello!

When I add a bookmark, I often find myself in the situation that I would like to adjust the URL. Alas, this cannot be done in the pop-up dialog that appears when clicking on the star button in the address bar.

Then again, it's quite tedious to find that bookmark in the bookmarks library to edit the URL there.

Am I missing something here or is this a missing feature?

I have been using Firefox Focus as my primary browser on Android for a couple of weeks now and the one feature I truly miss is the Reader View. Any chance of incorporating it into a future release? For now the easiest workaround is to open the page in regular Firefox and use the Reader View there. I've also tried sharing the page to Pocket but both of these options are not as convenient as simply clicking on the Reader View button in the Title Bar.

Any comments or suggestions?

I'm on Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon. Just upgraded to Firefox 79.0

Firefox opens no problem. I start to type in a url and it shows autocompletions like normal, but when I press enter, nothing happens. No processing indicator, just white screen. The same happens for `about` pages like about:config.

If I open a new tab or (private) window, I get the "Firefox has been updated in the background" message with the button to restart. Click it and it restarts in the same state.

I've double checked that when it closes, there are no firefox processes running.

Everything behaves the same if I start it from the command line with "firefox --safe-mode".

When started from the command line there is a slew of this error:

      1. !!! [Parent][MessageChannel] Error: (msgtype=0x390132,name=PContent::Msg_AsyncMessage) Channel error: cannot send/recv

Thunderbird annoyances

Background: I have been a user of Thunderbird for many years, starting before it became open-source. I have been on Windows 10 since it first came out.

1. I have turned off everything I can find in T-bird that might designate a message as junk, but still many messages that are OBVIOUSLY not junk are immediately placed in the junk folder. For example: messages from my wife, some of my own messges, messages from businesses (even my bank) that I have daily interaxtions with. Thus, every session with T-bird I must first go to the junk folder and evaluate each "new" so-called junk message and mark most of them as non-junk. Then I go back to the input folder, run my filters (none of which will call any of these questionable messages "junk",) and find that several of them have been put back in the junk folder. I "un-junk" them again, and then go to the inbox, where I must run each individual filter to place each such message in the appropriate folder. This is a tremendous waste of time, and it never happened until the last few months.

The filter at the top of my filter list (the first one to be run) is supposed to mark ALL incoming messages as "non-junk," but that does not seem to help.

2. With one of the recent "updates" it became impossible to scroll, minimize, maximize, or shrink the contents of any filter while editing it. I have ten filters that have many more specs in them than can fit on one screen. The "edit" window for a filter looks like a standard Windows window, with an X in the upper right corner to clode it, but without the icons for shrinking, maximizing, or minimizing the window, and no scroll bar to permit scrolling through the filter's conditions. That means that a filter now is limited to about a dozen conditions, and there is no way I can make changes to those ten large filters (I cannot get down to the "Save" or "Exit" buttons. This limit is not mentioned in any documentation that I can find.

3. In just the last couple of days while running my filters I have been getting warnings that "The --- folder cannot be found, so messages cannot be moved to it." In every case, I have had no difficulty finding the folder mentioned, and every filter referring to it has it listed correctly.

4. Very recently, whenever I start Thunderbird, and sometimes when I delete a message, I get an annoying message offering to remove all deleted messages from my hard drive automatically whenever one is deleted. The only choices are "Yes" and "No." I do NOT want Thunderbird to delete messages, because I cannot trust Thunderbird to determine junk messages in any rational way. THERE SHOULD BE AN OPTION TO TURN OFF THAT ANNOYING MESSAGE PERMANENTLY.

5. A minor annoyance is the recent unnanounced change in the way a new message is addressed. Once I accidentally stumbled on how the new systemt worked, I could deal with it. However, any change in the way a user interface is to be used should be accompanied by a brief note to all users about how to use the new interface. I should NOT have to read all the tedious detail in the change log every couple of days to find out what new trick you have decided to play. I don't see ANY advantage to the one-line for addresses over the old multi-line address procedure.

I have gotten to the point where I am for the first time ever starting to look at alternatives to Thunderbird. I will try to stay with Thunderbird for a few more months to see if you can fix some of these issues. Migrating to another email client is surely going to be a significant challenge, but I am getting close to the point of needing to.

Sincerely, Eric Myrvaagnes

I run Eudora 7.1.9 and it runs just fine until I open Firefox. Then memory dissipates quickly and everything slows down or FF crashes and/or it takes my Eudora with it. Don't have the problem with IE or Chrome but I prefer my Firefox.

I am running a 64 bit version of windows 8.1 with a dual processor and 8GB of ram and a 1T SSD.

I assume I'll have to make changes, just don't know yet.

Appreciate help.

Hi All, We had Thunderbird installed on our Windows based computer and it worked fine. When changed to an iMac and installed Thunderbird then every time the computer shuts down or loses power Thunderbird disappears and has to be re-installed. Also all of our emails that were previously in the Inbox have gone. Once re-installed it works normally except that there are no emails in the Inbox other than those time stamped since the last shutdown. What have I done wrong?

I have been having this issue for quite a while and was always hoping that a new build would fix it, but it didn't.

When searching for a catchphrase or word with CTRL + K, I get results (image 1). But when I click on one the mails I receive a blank page (image 2). I noticed that this happenes with all archived messages but also with old messages that are still on the server and/or in one of the other folders that are not archived.

I'm using Thunderbird 68.11.0 (32bit) on Windows 10 (v 2004 build 19041) Own Hosting Archives are on an additional physical drive in my PC - always connected and on. I also tried Beta versions in the past of Thunderbird but non of them helped.

Maybe somebody could give me some advice on this issue: Am I doing something wrong when using CTRL + K? Do I have to change any settings in Thunderbird for the server/archive/search?

Thank you in advance Andrew

Using firefox the image loading on manganelo fails consistently with new clean profiles on multiple devices, OS:s (even on phone), with different IP:s, while chrome always works.

Spoofing the user agent doesn't fix the issue.

Is there any way to fix this or is Firefox outright banned by the webmaster?
