Hi,

As in the topic. When I scan the QR code with Google Authenticator, the account is added and new codes start spinning (labeled Firefox ($email)). However, when I enter the visible code into the Enter security code input, I get "Incorrect security code" error (tooltip).

I can see Google Authenticator listed as a supported application, is this no longer valid?

I also tried typing the secret key into the app directly with the same results.

Thanks for help in advance.

The new Firefox for Android version 79.0.5, why was it released from Beta with only nine extensions, and no way to search for more?

I know there are a lot of people, who never add a extension. But most of us get one or more extensions. I really like searching for them. I install them one at a time, and test them. If they crash Firefox, I go back and let them know, and they fix it. Also when you go to install a extension, it says which versions of Firefox it is compatible with. As this new version has been in beta for about a year there should be a lot more than nine extensions available for me to test. There should be so many by now that it should have its own search page separate from the old Firefox for Android search page. But you let it come out of beta with only nine recommended extensions, and no search page, and no way for me to install the extensions that I like to use, to test if they will work with the new version. So for now I have to wait for how many updates, before I get a update that has a link to a search page for the new Firefox for Android Extensions. Then I can search for my favorite extensions and find out if they say they are compatible with this version, then I have to test them! you guys are really being slow about this!

Hi. Has anyone ever had this problem where Firefox suddenly does not work even after reinstalling it?

I updated my Nvidia drivers to 461.40 and when I opened Firefox, it just came up with a blank white window.

I tried entering Safe mode by holding down the Shift button and opening it again but it just hung on the safe mode window that comes up. Tried pressing the buttons but nothing happened.

I thought it must have been the Nvidia update that's done this but I rolled back to the previous version and now Firefox won't even open. It just shows up as a process in task manager.

I've uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail.

Am I missing something?

Is there something in the old profiles that's preventing Firefox to open again?

I believe I was using Firefox 86, running Windows 10 Home.

I'm surprised that a community-based web developer would flood its users with constant messages. I'm referring to when I open Firefox for Windows, and constantly receive message banners at the bottom of the browser. You'd half expect it from a commercial web developer, but even they refrain from doing that.

Please stop this practice as it's very annoying and distracting. Perhaps a menu option for "Suggestions" where the user may opt to view such messages is a better idea than thrusting them constantly on the user.

In better news, I've noticed Firefox is a faster, less clunky browser than it has been in the past - good work :)

Hi,

I'm using a Ken Burns effect for my website. Usually the animation used to run smoothly as it should.

However, since a few weeks, the animation runs very rough. Please have a look for yourself:

Interestingly, other browsers such as Edge or Chrome do NOT have this problem.

What's wrong with Firefox in that matter?

Thanks for your help!

I can't find a way to enlarge the font size in menu or bookmarks toolbar, or the drop down menu and the bookmarks themselves. It is ridiculously miniscule and I have to use a magnifier to see it - I have Fuchs Dystrophy so my eyesight varies from day to day, but 16-18 size is usually ok. Can anyone point the way if any please?

Many thanks Teresa

To Whom It May Concern:

Are there any plans to integrate Thunderbird with the Windows 10 Notification system, and suspend Thunderbird's own internal notification? The Thunderbird notification does not display all notifications when emails are received from multiple accounts; it's thought that the Windows 10 notification might be superior at stacking all new messages.

I installed Firefox on a MacBook Pro 13" (Mid 2012) with MacOS 10.15.7 Catalina. Before closing Firefox for the first time, I carefully opened settings and ticked "Restore previous session", under "Start" on the "General" settings page. But when I opened Firefox again, there were no tabs, just a "Welcome screen" as if it was the first time ever I use Firefox! This is extremely disappointing! I am really shocked! I had never thought that Firefox would screw me like this! I have been using Firefox on Windows and Ubuntu for many many years! I can add that it is Firefox 85.0.2. And now it updated itself to 86.0.

Hi, I've used Thunderbird for many years.

For almost a year the font is so small I have to squint to read it. I cannot enlarge the font. I cannot zoom the page. I cannot make any change to the font size. I searched for answers. I tried the solution that requires me to search the directory and change all fonts by the 1.5 value, which did work for a day. It reset to the usual 8pt font.

Today I opened Microsoft's Outlook for the first time in many years. It is always included with the Office programs. I prefered Thunderbird because it's familiar. I changed the Outlook font size from the 8 point font it came with to 14 point, which makes is so easy to read.

I have determined it might be easier to set up and migrate to Microsoft Office than continue to search and beg and keep experimenting with Thunderbird.

duplicate copies in Sent with my MS365 Outlook server work account Not seen at home accessing that account Same client used, OS is Manjaro stable, with TB 78.7.1 64bit acessing OWL server, outlook.office365.com No aliases, no filters.

Area for copies is greyed out under Copies & Folders but was set by software to Place a copy in Sent. It seems Outlook places a copy for you and you do not need to ask for one.

T home, the same client does not disable choices for my gmail account, does for work account, but only saves one copy.

What's going on, and how can I config it to get only one copy saved in Sent? Is this some server/domain policy? Is there a config hack to work around it?

Thanks.
