Hello,

I have synchronized a shared Google calendar via https://apidata.googleusercontent.com/caldav/v2/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx@group.calendar.google.com/events in Thunderbird. This basically works fine.

But if there is a recurring event (e.g. every two weeks on Wednesday) and someone moves a single one of those events e.g. from Wednesday to Thursday via her/his Google Calendar app on Android smartphone, this single event will still show in Thunderbird on Wednesday instead of Thursday. While it shows on Thursday in Google Calender app or on calendar.google.com (see Screenshots).

What can be done to show the event on the correct date in Thunderbird calendar, too?

(This is no synchronization problem, other events added later are shown in Thunderbird.)

Many thanks for your help!

Hi!

Updated FF on my Linux box today & now the NYT homepage can't be loaded. Altho' the WaPo homepage seems to load faster, the NYT just times out in mid-render, probably due to the site's heavy javascript. FF doesn't pop up any error messages, alas.

I'm assuming the new FF is simply allergic to the NYT's clunky code. But still. . .any tips, tricks, workarounds or hints to fix?

Hello! I'm a sort-of new Firefox user, and I just noticed some differences in behavior between Firefox and Chrome.

In Chrome, when I drag a tab out of its window so that I can move it into another window, if the window in question only has one tab, then dragging that one tab will hide the current window and show the background, allowing me to easily drag it into that background window.

This is especially useful when both windows are maximized.

In Firefox, I cannot do the same. Dragging a tab around a window with only that one tab open does not hide the current window, but rather, drags the tab around the browser window. I recognize now that this is because I can drag the tab to other places such as the Bookmarks menu, and if the above Chrome behavior was replicated, I would have a hard time doing this with just one tab open.

Though, I think the way to merge a maximized one-tab window onto another window in Firefox is to just drag the window a bit so it stops becoming maximized, then drag the one tab onto the window behind it. Is that how I'm supposed to do it, or is there a better way?

On another note, is there any way as of the moment to replicate Chrome's behavior with regard to this tab dragging situation? If not, thank you for your time, anyway. I'll just get used to the new way of doing this for now. Thank you all!

Over the last few days my "Find in Page" function has stopped working. If I type Ctrl-F the window opens in the status bar. I can type one letter that highlights some - but not all - instances of that letter on the page. As soon as I type a second letter the field goes pink.

Is it possible this is something easy to fix without having to completely reload Firefox?

Yes, it's a very old version of Firefox. But it's worked perfectly until now.

I have been viewing this website for years and, suddenly, this evening, the text in certain files on the website has changed to white text on black background, when viewed through Firefox for Windows on my Laptop.

Story files on this website are either in a basic doc format or in html. The html files are fine but the doc files are the ones displaying this strange change in 'behaviour'. Just for comparison, even though Firefox is my preferred browser, I tested the issue on Edge; the doc files, when viewed there, still display as black on white, as usual, so to say.

I have reviewed the web and found various things about Windows wide settings and also a post about the prefs.js file. The windows wide settings didn't seem to have any effect. I did the procedure of renaming the prefs.js file to prefs-old.js, which forced Firefox to return to default settings, but there was still no 'correction'. I also completely shut down the laptop and restarted; again no resolution of the problem.

Any ideas, please?

Hello,

Sorry if there is already a solution to my problem but I've searched for hours without success.

I live in France and I purposely set my system language to English to have everything in English but for some specifics french websites I want them to be displayed in french by default. (not all of thoses websites offers to remember the default language nor have a language switcher)

I tried all the extensions suggested on superuser.com but none of them work (anymore, I guess).

By memory I tried the following Mozilla Firefox extensions with no success :

   Language Switcher
   Language Switch
   Quick Accept-Language Switcher

Also, the point is to "remember" the websites and default language because currently I always have to edit the URL to replace "en" by "fr" and then reload the page.

   OS version : macOS Big Sur 11.2.1
   Firefox version : 86.0

The other workaround I have is to use another browser with the French language set as default but I'm really looking for a solution allowing me to use only one browser for personal web browsing.

Thanks and have a nice day

Hello,

we have a problem with opening the link in our html Newsletter just only in Thunderbird.

The problem is that the links in the html element <button> do not lead to the specified address in a href, but open a modified adress as a local address.

Example: in the source code in a href there is a link to: https://www.czechia.com/novinka/vyvoj-nove-zakaznicke-administrace-prehled-sluzeb/

however, Thunderbird will open this local address for me: file:///C:/Users/LUKAS~1.TOM/AppData/Local/Temp/rZCq1pcC.html.html
