Since the Firefox dev team has decided to completely (removed) this browser, completely changing the experience and bricking the option of making the browser usable by fiddling with about:config, I want to go back to the version before this.

How do I do this? The PlayStore does not support going back to an older version.

Do I really have to download an older apk from a possibly shady third party website? Because I sure as hell can't find apks on Mozilla's FTP...

Firefox fails to open up a PayPal "popup" window-let when trying to make a purchase from Steam

Hi Forum Folke,

Trying to make a purchase from Steam; click, click, click, get to the payment page, where I select "PayPal" as the method of payment. Get another screen that confirms proceed with PayPal; I click on "OK," and nothing happens. What's *supposed* to happen is a little popup window should open up with the PayPal login, I log in, wade through the selections, and make the payment. What *actually* happens is nothing at all. Click on "OK," and there's this "blink" and that's it. No other change to the page I'm looking at, no PayPal, no nothing... and if I persist in trying, Steam gets all uppity and tells me I've been trying to make too many purchases, try again later. Chrome handles the above scenario without any problem whatever, so the problem is not with Steam, it's with FireFox. Where should I be looking or what should I be looking for that might be preventing FireFox from doing what it should be doing? Thanks... I'm not sure what system info you need to diagnose this issue; if you'll let me know I'll be happy to dig it up and provide it.

Oh, and I'm pretty sure I can rule out my anti-virus, as again, it lets Chrome do it without problem... just not Firefox. For what that's worth....

I just did a fresh installation of the current version of Thunderbird. Other machines on our LAN are sending and receiving fine with identical settings, but this machine can only receive mail, but sending gives this error:

Thunderbird failed to find the settings for your email account

I have been using thunderbird very actively and happily for years now. However, it seems I have hit a brick wall.

I have setup a new computer using CentOS8 and installed the stock thunderbird version 68.9.0 (64-bit) I have setup two of my mail accounts successfully already. However, the third one, my work email account (I work at CERN), is giving me trouble.

When I enter my name, address and password into the wizard, it tries to search for settings. However, instead of the correct addresses of the IMAP and SMTP servers (imap.cern.ch and smtp.cern.ch), it suggests "outlook.office365.com", probably as a result of the fact that it also searches for Microsoft Exhange servers and CERN used to have some of those in the past (they are being phased out now).

Since I know the credentials anyway, I can enter the IMAP and SMTP server addresses by hand, alongside the authentication methods and ports (SSL for IMAP, STARTTLS for SMTP). Now I click "Re-test", but I just get "Thunderbird failed to find the settings for your email account". I know for a fact that the credentials are correct, as I can sync just fine from my private laptop (thunderbird on archlinux) and my phone (gmail on android). This leads me to believe that the problem is indeed on my side, and not a mere server configuration issue. It is possible that the problem does not come from thunderbird, but from some underlying piece of software (e.g. openssl, my system security settings, or perhaps even the wired network I'm connected to on this computer,) - but the thunderbird output is less than helpful.

What can I do to get a more precise description from thunderbird as to why the setup of my email account failed and what I can to do fix it?

Ages ago, with the separate search bar enabled, Firefox would allow the addition of any "searchable" site to the dropdown options for a search. This option is still available on specific sites, shown by adding a green + to the search icon (see Capture3.png).

At some point, this addition was "overridden" so that this option was available only to specific sites that have enabled the OpenSearch description within a separate xml file (from my best understanding from my best understanding). I'm sure that there is a security reason for this, but given that there are many sites available that don't have this option for whatever reason, including Wolfram Alpha and Dogpile, I used to be able to still add these sites as one-click searches and I would still like to do so.

If the "Add X"/green + is not available, the only option to add new search engines these days appears to be through the "Find more search engines" link under Options which sends the user to Add-Ons site specifically to search for an applicable add-on.

It doesn't seem like I should have to include an entire Add-on to switch search engines, especially since search engines I'd had from previous Firefox versions seem to have carried over just fine. For example, Thesaurus.com and Wolfram Alpha can't be added on my newer, fresh Firefox installations on other PCs, but I've got Thesaurus.com available from my long-standing profile (Capture4.png).

I've found a method to edit the search.json.mozlz4 file and manually add searches, there must be an easier way to accomplish something that seems relatively simple, and do so without a new add-on.

Creates AND SENDS multiple copies of drafts

I read with great interest Creates multiple copies of drafts at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1280432, and tried both suggestions with absolutely no success.

In addition, my instance of T-bird (ver. 78.0) now has begun *SENDING* the automatic draft saves instead of saving them! One of my recipients received *SEVEN*, slightly different copies of the same e-mail message, complete with typos and attached photos!

Furthermore, I thought it was a bug in the new T-bird version. So, I backed up all my files including my profile, then uninstalled T-bird, rebooted the laptop, then installed an older version of (ver. 68.11.0, as I remember). There was some improvement: The older T-bird didn't send the saved drafts, but it still saved multiple, serial copies.

But wait! There's more! I am running both Win 8.1 and Kubuntu 20.04 LTS on my laptop as dual boots. So, when that last experiment failed so badly, I rebooted to Kubuntu, and ran the Linux version of T-bird (ver. 78.0 as well, I think. But I don't want to reboot right now to double-check.) Same story: Multiple, serial drafts!

But then last night, the Kubuntu version of T-bird began SENDING multiple, serial drafts to the recipient!

And both of the two Windows versions and the Kubuntu version committed the same error whether I used the "Save" button or the keyboard shortcut ( <Ctrl>-S).

So, I am at a complete loss. I have no idea of what to do next. Or where to even continue looking.

Wait! The thought just hit me that I'm using more or less the same profile contents in all three instances. If the problem lies there, what part of my profile would mangle the function of the "Save" command? What do I need to do to fix it? (Without losing all my other profile customizations.)

Thanks in advance.

Stan

I have a brand spanking new system with Win 10 installed on SSD. I've been using it for about a month and it works great. MS updated edge over night (SURPRISE) and now Firefox has been slowed down considerably. For example. Facebook loads OK, but as I scroll down, the "Like", "Read More" , "Comment" links don't work for a bit. On this site trying to bring focus on this text area is laggy. Not like before update.

They seem to show up after a while, but it seems like every site is somehow s-lo-w-e-d since this 'update'. I re booted and also ran the 'quick fix" option but stuff is still slow.

Of course the update can NOT be rolled back. Do y'all imagine this is intentional or just my imagination?
