I hate it when I click on the url-field and its size change.

It wasn't there in former firefox versions and I did not miss it. It changed some time ago. Any decent software development would have introduced his new feature and provided a "classic" option to turn it off. Not so firefox. Mozilla introduced it and I had to google how to get the old behaviour back. No option.. I have to go to about:config, ignore teh warnings, find some weird options and set them to false and the mozilla turned that off too. Now the was to change it is to set up a css-file, got to about:config again to make firefox actually read that file, place some mystery css-code in there and it still does not work!

Very annoying, an outstanding example of bad practice how to introduce new features and take away users choices.

So: How to stop URL bar from enlarging on click?

There appears to be a bug in Firefox when I use this website, https://www.ourguide.com.au/tv_guide.php?r=melbourne&w=now

When you scroll down, the headings move right and show above the wrong information, see attached screen shots.

If you use this website on Chrome, you don't get the scroll issue so I think it is either a Firefox bug or something that needs changing in my Firefox settings.

I am running Firefox 77.0.1 (64-bit).

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Usually when I hear the beep, I go to TB take a quick glance and it used to show which inbox has new mail....

Please if you can help me with this I would greatly appreciate it.

Hello! I use Thunderbird on Windows 10 for my emails. I am trying to connect via POP3 connection to Godaddy's Office 365 server where the email is set up. When I put in the server settings Godaddy has given me https://au.godaddy.com/help/find-my-microsoft-365-imap-or-pop-settings-9012, Thunderbird gives a message that it senses that the server is there. But when I select done, I get an error message "Config could not be verified. Likely that server admin has disabled selected configuration for your account."

Thunderbird doesn't have the encryption method of SSL, so I tried all the other encryption methods. I got the same error message.

I am certain that the password is correct because I have logged in directly from the browser with no trouble. I copy and paste the password so there is no chance for typos.

Thank you for your help!! - T.S.BH

Hi there, first time posting. I have Firefox 82.0.3 64-bit and I am on Windows 10. The only add-ons I have are Ublock Origin and Adblocker.

This morning I was having some internet trouble and it turns out my ISP needs to send someone out to my house to fix it. While my internet was going in and out, Firefox seemed very sensitive to this because it would continue to crash.

I was wondering if your internet connection going in and out can cause Firefox to crash (I need to the end the process because it is unresponsive type of crashing). I don't usually have any problems with Firefox and just wanted to ask.

Thanks.

I hav been using my Gmail in Firefox with no problem until about 3 days ago. Now when I try to sign in to my account I get a pop up window which states “This browser or app may not be secure. Try using a different browser. Etc.”

I have tried another browser (chrome) and Gmail works fine, but I like working in Firefox. But at this rate I may dump Firefox and go to another browser.

I have looked through the other support group questions and solutions. I have tried them all and nothing is resolved. Clearing cache, clearing cookies, using a private window, managing data, using forget about this site, generating a new profile, disabling extensions, loading in safe mode, etc.

I have Firefox version 83.0 (64 bit). My operating system is windows 7.

Any other suggestions?

Hello,

 I'm a Windows 7 user. For the past 3 weeks my Firefox browser (83.0) has been slowing down and then speeding up while visiting sites. I tried Safe Mode, Refresh, and Reinstall but nothing seems to help. It's not being caused by anything on my computer (malware, viruses, etc) because I ran several scans using Malwarebytes Premium, CCleaner Premium, Microsoft Security Essentials, even Microsoft Safety Scanner and nothing turns up.
 Is there any other way to fix this issue on the browser?

Hello! I have been a Thunderbird user for many years now and I absolutely love it. The problem that occurred a few weeks ago is actually the first I have ever encountered, so I'm really hoping someone can help me solve it. I have always had several email accounts set up in Thunderbird. My current ISP is Spectrum (formerly Charter in my area). My primary email accounts are all xxxx@charter.net accounts. I also have a few older email accounts set up from when I had AT&T as my ISP and these accounts are all xxxx@sbcglobal.net accounts. The first thing that happened a few weeks ago was that I stopped receiving emails at any of the xxxx@sbcglobal.net accounts. When I open Thunderbird now, my Charter emails all come in fine but an error message comes up relating to the xxxx@sbcglobal.net accounts (see images). I am able to log in to the web-based email site to get all of these emails with my email addresses and passwords associated with each account, but they simply no longer come in to Thunderbird. That is problem #1. Problem #2 occurs when I try to set up a new Charter email account in Thunderbird. I use the automatic configuration option and the first screen says that the necessary settings have been found, but when I click "Done" I get the error message shown (again, see images). When I attempt to manually configure the account, I compare the settings to my other Charter email accounts that are all sending and receiving emails just fine and cannot for the life of me see any differences. So...I'm stuck. Any help that the membership might be able to offer is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your help!

I have a website with SSL. When I open it by simply www.sitename, FF automatically uses https and extends this to all sub-pages. When I open sub-pages directly, i.e. www.sitename/pagename, FF uses http and shows the insecure icon. If I open sub-pages with https://sitename/pagename, FF shows them as secure. Chrome and Edge automatically use https for sub-pages opened directly by www.sitename/pagename. Why is FF inconsistent in this way?

Sending e mails with an attachment from Thunderbird to Outlook 365 , each time the name of the attachment is long, the attachment name is displayed by Outlook 365 with a modified name. The modified name, as displayed by Outlook 365, starts with the initial digits of original name as sent by Thunderbird, followed by a long sequence of alphanumeric characters (e.g. %65%6E%5F%53%63%68%61%64%65%6E%5F%4C%65%74%69%7A%69%61%20%52%6F%74%61%20%28%33%29%2E%70%64%66 ) The above happens with PDF attachments . The PDF contents are not corrupted, but the file name is changed. (In the case of a .docx attachment with a the same long name, in addition to displaying the wrong name, the attachment itself became in Outlook 365 a .dat file which could not be open).

Is any configuration change I should introduce in Thunderbird to overcome this incompatibility?

Different PCs are showing the same issue. OS: Windows 2004 with the Sept 2020 Cumulative Update. Office 365 updated with the Sep 2020 update. Thunderbird 72.2.2 - 32 bit with standard settings and Unicod (UTF-8) - German Language

The problem might have been preexisting, I just noted it now. (I also wrote about the issue in a Microsoft forum, it has been initially suggested to repair Outlook 365 but this did not help, other investigation steps may still come)

Infinite Security Alert loop on Firefox browser for https site using SSL Certificate

Hi There,

I'm hoping someone can help me on this I have exhausted several options so far.

I am trying to access a https site using an SSL Certificate (Specifically Chain of Trust with a root, intermediate and server certificate) on Firefox, however whenever I attempt to visit the site a recurring Security Alert pop up continues to appear with the message: "A secure connection with site cannot be verified. Would you still like to proceed?" . The certificate isn't signed which is the reason for the popup.

I use the website frequently on other browsers and subsequently press yes and continue to the site, but on Firefox the same Security Alert pop continues to appear regardless of the number of times I accept it.The issue is specifically related to Firefox as I can accept the certificate on Chrome, IE and Edge and not face the same issue.

I have tried multiple options to circumvent the issue, including adding the CA's into my Trusted Root Certification Authorities on my Windows (and setting security.enterprise_roots.enabled to true), and manually importing the certificates into Firefox under the Authorities section of the Options menu, clearing cache and cookies and restarting browser/machine. I have added the hostname of the site to the hosts file, and even as a test temporarily disabled SCL validation to see if this would prevent it. However in all cases the security popup continues to reappear, in an infinite loop.

Does anyone know of any alternative ways that will allow me to proceed to the website, or circumvent the Security Alert loop problem? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I want to stop hackers from making changes to my browser settings that shuts off my firewall and anit-virus. i want to know what they are changing to accomplish this. A simple refresh of Firefox (it would be a reset of any other browser) alleviates the problem, so I know it is in here. I don't think sharing my data will offer anything as the browser has been 'refreshed' but will if someone thinks it will help.
