When I visit https://online.kasikornbankgroup.com/K-Online/indexHome.jsp, and click the K-Cyber Banking tab, all I see is what is shown in attachment 1 - symbols and the View | Text encoding is greyed out. I am unable to see my accounts. This issue started with Firefox 83.0 and people on some other forums have reported the same issue.

The tab should look more like attachment 2.

Does anyone know what is causing this, whether it is a browser problem or bank problem, and if there is a fix for it?

I have problems with any programs that run "Automatic Updates" I have just realized that TB v78 has done just that with no option to enable or disable this feature, while I appreciate some prefer the "hands off" approach I like a little more control over my updates as I like to do "backups" before updates get automatically installed!

Cut to the chase, 'How do I turn off auto-updates in version 78.5'?

Thanks!

I was using TB 5 and upgraded to TB68. When I hit "Reply" on a message in the main Inbox, the From: field is properly filled in automatically. Also if I compose a brand new message it is filled in. But if I try to reply to a message that is in one of my Local Folders, the From: field is blank. After reading through the forum I checked and my main identity was not the default, so I changed it to be the default, but that did not help. (I have closed and restarted TB several times since then, so that is not the issue either).

The option button asking about showing remote content does not show up.

When I allow remote content in options/privacy and security, the remote content is not displayed.

I tried:

- restarting in safe more; - resetting all settings to default; - re-installing thunderbird.

Nothing helps.

I use no add-ons except dictionaries (German French, Russian, Spanish).

I am using version 78.5.0, but the problem emerged before I upgraded to this version.

Thanks!

Yuri.

Normal logins are working fine, but if I have to sign into sites which require a .htpasswd login, no user and no password will be filled, though the data exists, because on desktop Firefox, it's working without problems.

If you need more information or maybe I can help you fix it, I'll do my best.

When addressing an email, I *much* prefer the previous alignment of To, Cc and Bcc all in one line with the ability to switch between them. Any way to get that back? I use cc quite often and I'm finding the new layout awkward and less flexible.

These are the issues which I have:

- I close Thunderbird with many tabs open. When I reopen Thunderbird all the tabs are closed except for the Inbox. Previously the tabs remained open but since recently that is not the case.

- In my Inbox all e-mails from before 16-Nov-2020 are blank I can see the Subject, who they are from and their date and time. But when I highlight them they appear to be from the last legible sender, the title is shown from the last legible sender and their contents are blank. How can I restore them?

Not long ago I installed Malwarebytes. Since I had these problems I uninstalled this application. Yet the problems have not been resolved. What can I do about them? Thank you.

Hi,

I always have dozens of tabs opened, if not hundreds. They have vanished. I’ve been trying to follow the topics on the matter, such as the one named ‘Session won't load’ (questions/1254740), to no avail.

Finally, this time I remembered not to close Firefox when I saw my tabs where suddenly missing. I’ve never seen the ‘Restore the previous session’ on the Firefox menu, and neither did I this time. Without closing the browser, I did a backup of the ‘sessionstore-backups’ folder. It contains:

‘previous.jsonlz4’, from 22/11/2020 17:42 ‘recovery.baklz4’, from 22/11/2020 18:57 ‘recovery.jsonlz4’ from 22/11/2020 18:58 ‘upgrade.jsonlz4-20201027185343’ from 31/10/2020 13:42 ‘upgrade.jsonlz4-20201108180448’ from 10/11/2020 15:05 ‘upgrade.jsonlz4-20201112153044’ from 22/11/2020 10:34

The one I need is ‘previous.jsonlz4’, since by 18:57 I’ve already lost my tabs. From the update backups I think I could also use the one from 22/11. In any case, I don’t understand what I am doing wrong so as to recover the ‘previous.jsonlz4’. This is what I’ve tried from different threads on my profile folder:

The ‘-backup’ and ‘OLD’ changes belong to different attempts

- Rename (on ‘sessionstore-backups’ folder) ‘recovery.jsonlz4’ and ‘recovery.baklz4’ to ‘recovery-backup.jsonlz4’ and ‘recovery-backup.baklz4’, and also tried with ‘recoveryOLD.jsonlz4’ and ‘recoveryOLD.baklz4’ - Rename ‘sessionstore-backups’ folder to ‘sessionstore-backupsOLD’ - Rename (on the main profile folder) ‘sessionstore.jsonlz4’ file to‘sessionstore-backup.jsonlz4’, and also tried with ‘sessionstoreOLD.jsonlz4’ - Copy/paste the ‘previous.jsonlz4’ file into the main profile folder. - Rename ‘previous.jsonlz4’ to ‘sessionstore.jsonlz4’

Nothing has worked. Once followed the steps, Firefox keeps opening my startup page. Note that it does not restore my previous session (that is, some tabs regarding this same subject), but my startup page, which means my attempts are having some effect, although not the desired one. I do have the ‘Restore previous session’ checkmarked in ‘Setting/General/Startup.

I also tried to replace ‘recovery.baklz4’ (on ‘sessionstore-backups’ folder) with ‘previous.jsonlz4’, from 22/11/2020 17:42, hoping to be prompted with the ‘Well, this is embarrassing’ + ’Restore’ window. I had no success.

I’ve been trying to recover my tabs for hour by now and don’t find what I am doing wrong. Why does Firefox refuse to load my ‘previous.jsonlz4’ file? Am I missing something? Maybe ‘previous.jsonlz4’ is corrupted or something? Should I try to use the ‘upgrade.jsonlz4-20201112153044’ from 22/11/2020 10:34 file? (Although I would lose some information)

Some people talk about a ‘History > Restore Previous Session’. I cannot find anything similar.

Thank you very much

First, let me echo that whoever did the color scheme for v78 is colorblind. But we get by.

Bigger issue is not being able to send emails out via SMTP. Error returned is "Certificate key usage inadequate for attempted operation" and says "The configuration related to <mail-server> must be corrected"

Ok. How? Where? Have tried TLS security min, and every other thing from about:config to the Cert_list in my profile.

No joy on any.

Has anyone else reported severe battery draining on a new M1 chipped MacBook Pro? I noticed that the battery was draining as quickly or quicker compared with the one in my old 2014 15" MacBook Pro. I checked Activity Monitor and saw that the CPU utilization for the Firefox WebExtensions process was consistently north of 99%, even while I was doing nothing.

I've switched to using Safari and I'm now getting the incredible battery life I expected having read all of the reviews for the new M1 laptop.

I've been using Safari (on battery, with the screen at full brightness) for over an hour now and it hasn't moved from 100% yet.

This morning it went from fully charged to below 20% in less than five hours with brightness at 50% or less for half of that time. I'm sure I can't be the only new MacBook user who has noticed this?

Please fix the problem Mozilla as I'd much prefer to use Firefox vs Safari but not if it kills battery time like this.
