Firefox would not finishing loading so I (stupidly) clicked "refresh firefox" not realizing it would loose add-ons, extensions, etc. It created an Old Firefox Data folder if that can somehow get it back to as it was instead of having to figure what add-ons I had & reinstall everything, etc. My Bookmarks still appear but I need the add-ons back!

For years I have been using Firefox. If I clicked on a hyperlink in any of my programs, Outlook messages, websites etc, Firefox opened a new tab. That behaviour has suddenly stopped for websites including this one occasionally. It seems to still work for Outlook. Has Firefox changed its policy?

The advice on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1283295 is to edit browser.link.open_newwindow (3) 1:current tab; 2:new window; 3:new tab; But that is already set to 3.

What other settings might work? And why has this been changed?

I have the most current version of Firefox (96.0.2) installed on my MacBook Air running Mojave 10.14.6. I use Last Pass as my password manager. I have been unable to install Last Pass for quite some time, and get the message that I need to download Firefox to get this extension, which makes absolutely "No Sense" since that is the browser that is installed and up to date. (see attached screen shot). Now I have made a few changes to the browser's privacy settings as outlined in this link. Is that what is causing the problem, and if so, why? https://restoreprivacy.com/firefox-privacy/ Bjala@Pm.me or 1-908-399-0701

Hello,

I am using Thunderbird on both Linux and Windows and ran into the same problem on both OS after installing updating to Version 91.5.0.

Under preferences I have "Always ask" enabled for PDF-Files because I want to be able to choose the action depending on the document. I have the same config for Docx-Files.

When I click on a pdf - it opens a promt where I am asked what I want to do with the document - "Open with" or "Save" and no option is pre-selected. If I then press enter, nothing happens. I have to manually click on one of the two options and then press enter or "OK" to confirm the action.

With docx for example, it works perfectly. I get the same prompt but "Save File" is pre-selected. I can press enter and another prompt about the saving location opens.

I am guessing this is a bug since I only found this issue with Pdf-Files but if it is not, please let me know where to configure this option so it auto-selects "Save File" in the prompt.

Thanks in advance for any answer!

I am using Thunderbird 91.5.0 with Windows 10 and over the past months have run into trouble with the Qucik search function. I have 3 different email accounts combined into a unified folder and upon using quick search to look for emails from a specific sender, it will only display certain emails or only the emails I wrote to that person. This also happens when I tried to search the individual email accounts. I have disabled the Global Search and uninstalled the Conversations app but the problem persists. This is driving me nuts - any help would be much appreciated as I can't continue using Thunderbird if I can't fix this. Many thanks.

'Open links in new tab' and 'When you open a link, image or media in a new tab, switch to it immediately' settings do not work, even in safe mode. I'm on Version 96.0.2.

Changing these settings manually also does not solve the issue, tabs still open in the current window:

browser.search.openintab and make sure its value is set to true.

browser.urlbar.openintab and browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInTabs set to true.

Only thing that works for this function is CTRL + Click. Shouldn't these settings work if applied?

Thanks.

How can I stop Windows 8.1 system processes from using Internet Explorer instead of Firefox

I'm still running Windows 8.1 Pro and Firefox ESR is my default (& only other) installed browser. Internet Explorer Version 11.0.9600.20139 is still installed and tightly integrated in this version of Windows. Various application code seems to call Internet Explorer, creating a slew of cookies and temporary files, particularly during such operations as installing updates. Other code (such as "view this email in browser") ONLY works with Internet Explorer because it uses *.mht temporary space that Firefox is not permitted to access. Is there a way configure the system for many of these tasks so that Firefox is called instead? Or is this one of those "don't go there" ideas that only SEEMS like it would enhance security, but would really break the smooth running of my PC? Thanks!

I prefer Firefox to Chrome but Chrome has it this way for preferences and history, where you can even bookmark it. It treats history, settings and downloads as a page or a tab in its own right, which can be bookmarked, which I prefer. I was wondering if you could do this for FireFox, or via an add-on or if a request could be issued.

I installed Nightly Firefox 74.0a1 and I am still able to sideload extension. But based on this article https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2019/10/31/firefox-to-discontinue-sideloaded-extensions/, sideloading will not be supported in Firefox 74. I tested both of sideloading methods (https://extensionworkshop.com/documentation/publish/distribute-sideloading/?utm_source=blog.mozilla.org&utm_medium=post&utm_campaign=2019-sideloaded-discontinued) and the extension was able to be sideloaded successfully in both ways. Does anyone know the reason?

So I'm trying to make Firefox's push-notifications be displayed for a longer duration than the usual; I'm hoping to get them to stay visible for several minutes, instead of a few seconds. Perhaps the is a solution that doesn't require us to mess with the responsible API by ourselves? Another matter, also concerning those push-notifications: may it be possible to force them to always appear for a specific website, independently of the status of the Firefox-window? In our current case, they only seem to appear if it's minimized. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

A longtime Thunderbird user, now on 68.4.2. When Composing a new email from just *one* of my alternate identities I do not get a "To:" field; it defaults to "BCC:" and I must change it via the dropdown. I *can* report that eliminating my default BCC in that one ID 'solves' the issue, but I really need that default BCC as well. This is a recent unhappy development, and only happens in one ID. I've tried a bunch of things without any luck- restarting with add-ons disabled, saving 'corrected' version as a template, checking all my options/settings...even deleting that alt-ID, stopping/restarting Tbird...then adding a 'new' alt-ID. But using it *still* gets me a composition window with no TO: field. Thanks!

I see that at some point, probably the latest Firefox update, nearly all addons are disabled, and have no ability to re enable. Just as an example, "Downthemall". The "..." menu only has remove or report. Same for Adblock plus, back is close, dozens of others. Go to the page, eg https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/downthemall/ and install turns into "enable" which does nothing as well.
