Morning, every time when I click on a link on a website which should open a pdf document, firefox start opening several (infinite) new tabs with the document. Even if I close Firefox completely the process will continue if i open Firefox again. This can only be stopped when I smash the Strg+W Puttons to close all the Tabs faster then they are opening.

I hope someone can help me with this. It is really annoying when it happens.

Thanks and best regards.

When I launched Thunderbird a few minutes ago, it did the automatic update. When my inbox appeared, it had not downloaded any mail since I checked it a few days ago. I tried to download manually, but it timed out and did not download. So, I shut the program down and now when I launch it I get the error:

"A newer version of Thunderbird may have made changes to your profile which are no longer compatible with this older version. Use this profile only with that newer version..."

I tried launching using the "thunderbird.exe -p" command, to see if there were multiple profiles. There are not and when I tried to launch the Default profile, I got the above error again.

The "maintenanceservice-install.lot" file for today has this text in it:

"Upgrading service if installed... User access was set successfully on the service. The MozillaMaintenance service path is correct. The service was upgraded successfully"

Obviously, it wasn't upgraded successfully! Any ideas on how I can fix this?

Many thanks.

Windows 10: Can't get Firefox VPN to start/stay open anymore

When I attempt to open the Firefox VPN app on Windows 10, I can see the icon (in "off" mode) in my system tray, but the window with the on/off button and settings no longer appears. If I mouse over the icon in the system tray, it disappears.

It does not, however, disappear from the Task Manager, where it shows that it is it still running (at 0% CPU usage).

Is there something I'm missing? This didn't happen when I first installed the app. I've tried reinstalling a few times, and now this just seems to be the new normal.

Use the app on Android with no problems on the same account.

When I try to create a subfolder nothing happens after I'm done initiating the request.

Also my little "thinking" circle in the upper left  is circling non stop now. It seems that all other functions are OK. Could this be because of the recent update?

Thanks in advance

Hello

every email i get from paypal includes the same (wrong) name in the correspondents column.

For example, I'll receive a payment from client "Bob Jones", but the correspondent column always says: "John Smith via paypal".

Paypal insists it's not them and suggested that I contact you.

Any ideas?

10/14/2020. I can not delete emails. When I try I get the message 'The current operation on 'Inbox' did not succeed. The current mail server for account mhart@jetbroadband.com responded: UID COPY Destination folder does not exist.' I tried the suggestion of deleting the trash and trash.msf folders and restarting Thunderbird; the new Trash folders were automatically generated but the problem continues.

Hello everyone,

Since a few days I have a problem with the layout Firefox gives me displaying “youtube.com”. The layout and a lot of functions (like play, full screen etc.) have changed or disappeared. The changes don’t apply in Firefox’s private Mode (and neither in Google Chrome nor on Firefox of my girlfriend’s laptop). I deactivated every single Addon and searched on google - unfortunately, I could not find any solution. Does somebody have an idea?

I have added two pictures where you can see the comparison between normal and private mode.

I have the latest version for Firefox and Adobe Shockwave Flash.

Thanks a lot in advance and enjoy your day, Simon

I can retrieve messages properly. If I leave Thunderbird and exit out when I come back to it the current messages are gone!

If I shut down my laptop with messages present in Thunderbird, when I start it up again they are are gone.

What setting am I missing that will enable me to retain them?

I'm transitioning from Windows XP to Windows 7.
