Hi Guys,

I use Firefox personally and for business. I use a lot of very useful extensions and like many users I customize my experience. I have found that the number of extensions I use every day is larger then can be shown on the extension toolbar. I am aware that clicking on the "jigsaw" icon will open up all the extensions, however this is not practical and wastes a lot of time. I would like to substantially reduce the size of the search box and increase the available size for my extensions to be in one click territory on the toolbar, how do I best achieve that please?

Cheers

Malfuntion of "Reload Tab"

The website https://my.strathspey.org/dd/dance/12838/#cribs displays an image, which had a typo [Triangles used to be Traingles]

I am using Firefox 119.0.1 under Windows 10 Home Version 22H2 OS build 19045.3693

I had the page open in Firefox before the owner corrected the typo.

Immediately after the correction was online, all other browsers displayed the corrected version. But even now, hours later, after many resets by "Reload Tab", the Firefox tab still displays the typo-version.

I consider this to be a malfunction. "Reload tab" should bypass all caches, and reload the whole page directly from its server. - Is this a known bug? - If "Reload Tab" does not go to the source bypassing all caches, what doe it do? - Is there a workaround?

Both Thunderbird programs use the identical “Outgoing Server” settings.

Firefox v123 Snap on UbuntuStudio 22.04 only works in Safe Mode

UbuntuStudio 22.04 uses the Firefox Snap package by default. The latest automatic update does not display pages correctly in normal mode, but does work correctly on Safe Mode. Snap.io lists only the latest version of Firefox so I was unable to ask snap to revert to the previous release (prior to 5 Mar 24) and by the time I had tried to investigate the previous version was no longer cached. I did not see a way to force a fresh download of firefox from the latest channel on snap.io.

I tried the snap beta channel for v124, but that exhibited the same problems.

I tried adding a symbolic link to colors.css after seeing firefox complaining that it could not be found when started from the command line. That removed the error/warning message but did not clear the problem with normal mode.

I use the en-GB locale extension only. The technical details about my PC are as follows:

  • Operating System: Ubuntu Studio 22.04
  • KDE Plasma Version: 5.24.7
  • KDE Frameworks Version: 5.92.0
  • Qt Version: 5.15.3
  • Kernel Version: 6.5.0-25-lowlatency (64-bit)
  • Graphics Platform: X11
  • Processors: 12 × AMD Ryzen 5 7600 6-Core Processor
  • Memory: 30.5 GiB of RAM
  • Graphics Processor: RAPHAEL_MENDOCINO

I have now downloaded v123 and installed it in my local home directory, and that version is working well. I have removed the firefox channel via snap. It is likely to be a fault in the construction of the snap for v123 that was not present for v122 prior to 5 Mar 24.

Mozilla Thunderbird, personal storage (inbox, ourbox) 100% occupied, extension needed

Hi everybody,

this will be my 3rd attempt to illustrate a problem due to Thunderbird (see also ticket 124176, 12-23-2023 and resubmission: ticket 125893, 01-02-2024).

On 01-04-2024 I again got the message to resubmit my question by going to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new/thunderbird/form and entering my Mozilla account information, what literally happens now.

My problem with Mozilla Thunderbird occured after I transfered the account of my wife (katharina@dr-ristic.de) to my pc in order to chance the related password as all the others of my accounts.

By doing so I suddenly found my personal folder (including inbox- and outbox-folder) shifted from my primary ac-count (thomas@dr-ristic.de) and attached to my wife’s account (katharina@dr-ristic.de).

Up to now it was possible to shift back nearly 80% of these folders until I got the message: OVERQUOTA and that any adding of datas would exceed my storage quota (2147559282>2147483648), as well the storage is occupid 100% (2,0 GB).

I would appreciate if you could help me to solve this problem by extending the storage for example, so my personal folder will functioning as it did up to now. I do not want to delete any of my datas in the folders.

I am looking forward to your problem solving advices and wish you all the best Thomas

Hello!

I can't figure out what setting to fix this: every time I click to open a new window, about 35 tabs automatically open up that I have closed several times in the past. I simply want one new window without any previously opened tabs.

I've tried:

  • clearing my entire search history several times
  • shutting down Firefox and reopening (which opens up all those tabs)
  • uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it
  • initiating the latest Firefox updates
  • restarting my computer
  • turning my computer on and off
  • looking through every single preference in my Firefox settings (I've unchecked anywhere it talks about opening tabs)
  • reading various articles on Firefox's support page and on other support websites to try to figure this out (there's little info on this problem; the support is mostly about how to save previously opened tabs

Please help! I'm tired of having to close down all these tabs every single time I have to restart my computer or have to shut down Firefox. It slows down everything I'm trying to do.

Thank you!

My Thunderbird email app quit receiving new messages 6/13/2023 and I've had to use a different way to get emails on my laptop (note that it works fine on my pc) I finally got around to searching for answers and noticed a Mozilla Support thread that mentioned if the Connection Security is turned to NONE then messages are received. This worked for me too, but it doesn't feel safe to keep the security turned off. What can I do?

Im running Firefox on Apple Silicon and I really do wish that there was a way to change settings to adjust experience when using the browser. As for my current needs I wish there was a barebones mode I could enable because currently it's an energy hog and I am becoming discouraged to continue using it with this inefficiency.

Ill explain my use case, I do lots of research for school, and tend to work with 30-50 tabs at a time and by simply having Firefox open it drains my laptops' battery 3 to 4 X (times) faster. While the same tabs on Safari and even newly released DuckDuckGo Mac app can run those tabs for days while still sipping on battery.

another occassion is during my job search, these tabs will stay open for a week or two as I open jobs im applying to, using 'Skillsyncer' and bunch of gmail tabs. I prefer my laptop to lose 5% battery in 2 hrs instead od 3 minutes.

As things are now, Firefox is not well optimized and would like to let the Firefox team to add the mentioned functionality above. Sadly there's no way to reach out to their team and am instead forced to post here. For now I will refer to Firefox to 'Firefix' as there's plenty to fix.
