This has been an issue of mine for the past few days and I can't find a fix. I've tried to troubleshoot it and I've repeatedly reinstalled Firefox several times. The application either:

a. Doesn't open at all after I click the icon b. Freezes, refuses to register inputs and/or crashes c. Works temporarily, eventually turns into part B

My OS is Windows 10 and I want Firefox to be my default browser but it's not running properly at all on my computer. I have sent multiple crash reports because of this. Does anyone know what the problem could be? This has never happened to me before.

I'm going to say that for the last 3 versions of Firefox, I've had issues with many pages not loading images, not displaying the most current data, and every once in a long while (very infrequent) a page will just fail to completely load and I'll have to hit refresh so the wheels on the bus keep spinning.

Pages I have issues with: Yahoo Yahoo News Facebook CNN

The not loading images is the most frequent issue. Sometimes I'll need to reload a page a couple of times to see a pic. This is NOT on pages I have cached, but rather new pages I'm visiting.

The issue of not seeing new content is especially clear when approving new members or posts to a group within Facebook. This is a very regular occurance.

I just recently reloaded my computer from scratch (Mid Feb 2021), and this did NOT alleviate the issue, but rather it continued unabated.

The loading image issue looks like this.

Strange behaviour when copying images on Mac

Long time listener, first time caller... :) [Seriously have been using and loving Firefox/Mozilla since 2004-2005, before that was Netscape Navigator, this is the first time I can recall having an issue that I can't find already written up and solved. Hence, this post.]

I've been having some odd issues with Firefox (85.0.2 64-bit) on my Intel Mac (Big Sur 11.2.1) for the past few months, and this morning decided to dig in deeper.

The backstory: When I’ve wanted to copy and image and paste it into Apple Messages, the images sometimes don’t send because Messages doesn’t support TIFF, WEBP, or PNG formats when sending to someone who doesn’t have an iMessage account (aka using standard MMS like to Android phones). So, I then have to convert the failed image to JPG, delete the failed message, and drag the saved JPG image file into Messages and can then resend it.

The issue: Today, I discovered that when I copy a JPG image from Firefox, and paste it into Apple messages, it seems that it doesn’t send because it appears to be either copied or pasted as a different format than the original image?

To reproduce:

  1. Go to a web site with a JPG image ( http://www.lunarbaboon.com for example)
  2. Right-Click on the JPEG image ( comicorder038.jpg for example) and select “View Image Info”
  3. Right-Click on the JPEG image and select “Copy Image”
  4. Paste into Messages to send to someone who doesn’t have an iMessage account
  5. Hit enter to send
  6. Wait a few seconds for failure
  7. Click on failure Info
  8. Right-Click on image and select Open
  9. Preview shows the file as TIFF not JPG

To simplify:

  1. Go to a web site with a JPG image ( http://www.lunarbaboon.com for example)
  2. Right-Click on the JPEG image ( comicorder038.jpg for example) and select “Copy Image”
  3. Open Preview and select “New from Clipboard”
  4. Select “Tools -> Show Inspector”
  5. Preview shows the file as PNG not JPG

What I’ve tried: Copy & paste of same image from Firefox - Safe Mode fails - So, doubt it is something in my Firefox config Copy & paste of same image from Safari works - So, doubt it is something MacOS related However, copy & paste of same image from Chrome fails too - So, maybe it is something MacOS related?

Any suggestions on what to try next?

For going on a year now, Thunderbird has been getting slower & slower & is almost unusable now. I continuously get "downloading message [12] of 1750", for hours, and once it's complete it just goes back to the beginning & starts again, even if I only have 2 new messages! How do I STOP this? - I already have all these mails! Even when it briefly says "up to date", it is unresponsive. Mails just show a blank white window. I have 10 IMAP mailboxes, on a 16GB RAM computer. I have been able to view & send mail from an installation on a VPS (3 mailboxes), but now that is behaving the same way. Clients are not receiving mail (quotes, deliveries), I am not receiving theirs, I am losing work (and many hours of time every day) and I am already desperate. I've been using TB for 20 years. It never used to do this.

How do I stop this from happening? It's getting extremely annoying.

How to recover "Local Folder"

Hi,

It is the second time that the following happens to me: I updated Thunderbird 68 to 78 and all my datas are lost, especially e-mails, calendars and local folders.

I do not worry about my e-mail (which are on the provider's server Imap), or my calendars (which are on my phone), but I really worry about my local folders, as I do not have any back-up of the e-mails located in this folder.

Could you please help me to recover the local folder and all the e-mails in it?

Thanks.

Hi,

Today when I tried to open TB 78.6.1, there were no email accounts visible in the left hand pane.

I have 7 email accounts running through this mail client and I can see that there's something working because I get the usual incoming email alert when I receive an email but cannot open it and it's not visible anywhere in the TB window.

I did read of deleting a global-messages-db.sqlite file but have done this several times to no avail.

I have also tried disabling my firewall, reset in safe mode and nothing happens when I select tools>options.

Has anyone else had this problem? It was working yesterday,

Screenshot attached.

Thank you

Hello, I recently purchased a SSD and I am using it. I was shocked to see that my SSD's TBW was 800GB in just 2 months whereas I never write any big files and then I realize that Firefox was eating my TBW and I have disabled some features in "about:config".

Those features are: browser.cache.disk.enable = false browser.cache.disk_cache_ssl = false browser.cache.memory.enable = true


But disabling those things did not helped me. I am trying to save my TBW. I want Firefox to never write anything in my SSD. I want to disable cache forever. I want Firefox to store all cache in Memory. I know it will take more internet bandwidth but no problem for me.

Can I tweak these settings in about:config?

browser.cache.disk.capacity = 0 or 1 (Not use if 0 means unlimited or disable in Firefox so I am using 1 and please tell me how what does 0 does) browser.cache.disk.content_type_media_limit = 0 or 1 (Not sure what this is) browser.cache.disk.enable = false browser.cache.disk.free_space_hard_limit = 0 or 1 browser.cache.disk.free_space_soft_limit = 0 or 1 browser.cache.disk.max_chunks_memory_usage = 0 or 1 browser.cache.disk.max_entry_size = 0 or 1 browser.cache.disk.max_priority_chunks_memory_usage = 0 or 1 (Not sure what this is) browser.cache.disk.metadata_memory_limit = 0 or 1 (Not sure what this is) browser.cache.disk.preload_chunk_count = 0 or 1 browser.cache.disk.smart_size.enabled = false browser.cache.disk_cache_ssl = false browser.cache.offline.capacity = 1 browser.cache.offline.enable = false browser.cache.offline.storage.enable = false

Can I create a new setting like browser.cache.disk.disable = true?

I'm using a Surface Pro 7, running Win10H. Firefox had a brief period when I first installed it where the on screen keyboard would appear and work, that stopped after a few hours and has not worked since. I fiddled with the settings on both Firefox and my surface, though nothing has changed. Un/re-installing did not help, thought it could reset something. Any fixes or advice would be greatly appreciated.

For clarification, the Accessibility Menu on-screen keyboard does work, but the tablet-specific larger keyboard does not function. It does open and type in other applications.
