Entire YouTube pages loads normally, including recommended videos, comments, etc. Video screen remains black, with the "worm chasing its tail" indicating it is buffering. The buffering goes on indefinitely, with video never running. Pointing to the bar at bottom of screen, thumbnail images appear showing what WOULD BE showing if the video actually worked at all. Buffer forever, run video never has been the norm since update around April 1, 2020. Wife's PC was okay until few moments ago. Hers just installed the update, which coincided with YouTube videos doing same as mine. Is there any way to undue the update? I'd prefer taking my chance wuith whatever "security threat" than to lose use of the computer. Rendering unusable for security seems poor tradeoff.

Today Thunderbird stopped logging in to my email account. I'm getting an error message saying "failed to get listing". I can access my email by browser normally, though. I have a different e-mail account with the same provider and the other one works on Thunderbird as usual. Booting into safe-mode and disabling add-ons doesn't work. Any suggestions?

I can't access my TP-Link router from Linux, I got SEC_ERROR_BAD_SIGNATURE and no options to add an exception, since some versions ago. I can using another browser on Linux and with Firefox in windows. But I don't want to have another browser installed on my Linux machine only to access my router.

When I check for email, I get a list of new messages. Pretty consistently, I will see duplicate messages showing in the inbox (unified). If I delete one of the dupes, the other duped message subject is blanked out and clicking on it shows a blank message. I can clear that message (and all duped messages) by clicking on any other folder tab, then again click on the Inbox tab and all the dupes are removed. Not ALL of the incoming messages are duplicated, but a good share of them are.

I'm adding a couple images - one shows my incoming mail Inbox (with duplicated subject lines) and one shows the same list, but AFTER I've clicked on another mail tab, and then clicked back on the incoming mail tab (Inbox). Note that of the 18 msgs listed, only 4 have not been duplicated.

I don't know what to do to fix this. Do I just have to live with it?

I know this is kind of long, but this is my first question on this forum and I wanted to give some details.

My mail folders suddenly became empty. After some tinkering my email system is now working but the old files are still missing. Truthfully, I do not know if I fixed it or not, or if it just started working after shutting down and firing up again. People have told me that the folders are probably in there somewhere, but that does not help!

Finally one Mozilla article suggested a possible solution, but it was hard for me to fully understand their details. I said that my problem might be that a wrong setting of "read only" was set in some file directory so Thunderbird could not find the folders, (so it created new ones with the same names) but I DO NOT KNOW WHERE HOW TO CHECK FOR, OR CHANGE THESE SETTINGS, if that is the issue. Also, ALL the folders are empty, but there "seems" to be SEVERAL files that look like directory files to me (named after server) and I do not see how any one of these "sub-directories" could cause ALL my files to be empty.

Or it might be some other problem.

I do not pretend to be as tech savvy as many here might be, so if anyone has a clue as to my problem, I'll probably need details.

Losing all my emails for years would be a pain..yes, I know I should have backed up! (and I did learn how to do that this week) I have used and have be happy with Thunderbird for years, but this serious problem brings to sign up for this help forum. This is my first time here and my first question.

Thanks for any help anyone can give me. I've learned more about Thunderbird in the last two weeks that in the five years before...but not enough so far to solve my problem.

I have an old PC but it works OK. Windows 7-64 bit (waiting to buy new PC, so I do not have to pay for W10 twice...also, do not want to make big changes on this PC until I see if I can find my old emails. Dell XPS 420 Four core 2.5GHz CPU. 500 G HD 4MG RAM Plenty of USB and other ports, but no graphics card.

Although I've checked the session restore box in Options, I had a problem. With different windows open, I closed the first one (with the tabs I wanted restored), worked with the second window, then shut down FF. When I went back to FF it would only restore the second window. I have an online backup service so I can retrieve AppData from a few days ago -- how do I use that to restore the session from the first window? thanks

When I try to print any website using either CTRL-P or clicking the Print button on the preview page, the output is always single-sided. If I try to override by selecting 2-sided mode from the Printing Properties dialog, I cannot because the option is grayed out. This does not happen in other programs such as Microsoft Word, where the same 2-sided option works. My printer is a Brother MFC-J995DW.

On 6/27/20 I tried the following from Yahoo - "In Thunderbird version 68.5 and up you can change the POP server to pop.mail.yahoo.com (port 995). Then there will be a prompt from your Yahoo ISP partner to login. This is done with a OAuth 2.0 key exchange in Thunderbird which will authenticate the Thunderbird client in future logins." It didn't work either. Frustrated and disappointed. Don't know what to do next!

I have tried all the suggested solutions on your website. I can access my email through various browsers including Firefox and my iPhone. I have no problem sending or receiving from my 2 other emails with Thunderbird (one is with bellsouth.net and the other is gmail.com.) I have spoken with AT&T tech support and said contact Mozilla.

Email address removed. This is a public forum

Today I deleted this email account from Thunderbird and was unable to reinstall it. Is AT&T/ Yahoo not supporting Thunderbird?

If you seach on a page (ctrl f) for a text in a page, and that text is found on the page, but is not currently inside of the viewing window, it does not result in a hit. If you scroll down so you can see the text, and search again, it will hit.

This only occurs on Linux (Elementary OS), FF v 74.0 x64.

Is this a known issue?

For one, I don't even HAVE the ability to customize my menu bar to "switch to the calendar view". The only way I can do that is from the Events & Task menu. When I select Calendar from that menu, the Calendar is all I can see. The only way I can get back to my mail is by viewing something else, like Options. At that point, Options is rendered in a tab along with Calendar and Mail. If I make the mistake of closing Options first ..the Mail tab goes away and Calendar is no longer a tab but the whole thing again. To get mail back, i must go thru the dance of opening the options tab again to get the mail tab back and then make sure shift the focus to my mail tab before closing the options and calendar tabs. This is utterly nuts. I don't remember exactly when this behavior began to exhibit itself.

Also .. I run Thunderbird on two machines .. the exact same version (68.7.0 32 bit) but one where the menu uses different -- UK? - spelling (Favourite Folder vice Favorite Folder and Deleted vice Trash). The one using "Favourite" rather than "Favorite" doesn't have the calendar tab view issue .. the one that uses "Favorite" does. Makes me wonder if there might be something in the calendar settings causing this issue. It's really annoying. And I'm surprised that an issue reported 5 months ago is still hanging around after quite a few updates. Thanks!

I posted this earlier as a follow-up to a similar question but was told to post it as "new" .. so I am.

(tech details omitted here as believed to be a fairly common issue [perhaps: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=120679] although happy to provide some if asked)

Sorry to raise this issue from about 6 or 7 years ago but it is quite a niggle - if not a potential privacy/security risk.. For info, I think this was fixed briefly about that time but returned in a slightly newer version. If you plan to fix this I should be most happy to await Debian developers to consider a newer version of Firefox ESR a "stable" package and release it to the likes of me.

Many thanks and best wishes

On NBC, I get a screen reading "Well this is awkward. Sorry, it looks like the video or page you're looking for seems to have disappeared - or maybe it never existed to begin with." CBS simply won't let me play the program I select; it's just a black screen. Since both networks had the same problem on the same date, and it hasn't changed since then, I am assuming it is something to do w/my computer settings on Firefox, but have been unable to figure out what to change. Can you "talk" me through it?
