Currently @ Ver. 102.0.1 Problem remains. Since the update to 102.0 my Win10 PC has problems with the page update. When the scroll slider gets near the bottom the page, new images begin to load. This reload results in 3-15+ newly loaded Fb posts scrolling past so fast as to be invisible. I have to keep my cursor on the scroll slider and, when the loading begins, start scrolling up if I want to have any chance to easily find the last post I was reading. I have seen this behavior, grossly exaggerated, when I was viewing a video. The reload caused the viewing to pause and upwards of 15 newly loaded posts scrolled past in this rapid manner. My work requires that I am able to view pages of Facebook posts and this is now massively time-consuming and intolerable. I may have to change browsers in spite of my reluctance to do so.

hi there,

so far i was lucky with tb 102 as for me it "just works" as before, _but_ it seems that "sort by ... threaded" is now the default setting for folder views which i personally hate.

as i have "millions" of folders I don't want to switch every single one of them to "unthreaded" manually.

unfortunately i didn't find a setting within the ui that allows to change the setting generally being effective for every folder.

so i tried that: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1377304 but it didn't work.

so i tried that: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1293255 but setting mailnews.default_view_flags from 1 to 0 didn't work.

do i need to change another setting as well? maybe add "ShowExpanded" as well? but i'didn't understand how to do this: "the second group of values can be added to one of the first group to combine effects"

maybe i also have to change the setting "mail.folder.views.version" - to which value?

is it actually possible with new tb 102 to generally change the new default view "sort by ... threaded" to "sort by ... unthreaded"?

help would be very much appreciated; thanks a lot! :)

Recently there was an automatic update of Thunderbird to 102.2.2 (64-bits). Now I can't use the add-ons 'Category Manager', 'Provider for CalDAV & CardDAV' and 'TbSync' anymore because they are not compatible. They are for Thunderbird 91.0a1 - 99.0. I have a few questions regarding this matter: 1. Can I stop the automatic update of Thunderbird? How do I do that? 2. Can I downgrade Thunderbird from 102.2.2 to Thunderbird 99? A. I suppose I have to backup my profile folder. Download and install the version of Thunderbird 99 from https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/releases/99.0b2/win64/nl/ (and than the dutch .exe file) B. Import the backup of my profile folder But: I'm not sure about these procedure. Do I have to remove Thunderbird 102.2.2 first? Is this correct and can I use the add-ons again. Or do I miss something?

Thanks in advance.

My Firefox has intermittently (but many times a day) been been slow loading, often simply refusing to load at all. Clicking a link to open in a new tab often opens the tab but the tab says "New Tab" with an oscillating dot on the left. After a few minutes the dot stops and nothing displays. Often clicking something in Google News the new tab says "Opening " and then the Google URL. The page sometimes displays after a couple of minutes but sometimes never does.

I've disabled all my plugins except LastPass, but that doesn't help. My IT Support company hasn't been able to help. I tweeted Firefox and they suggested I DM them. I've done that, even sending a couple of illustrative screen videos. But no oikne has ever responded to my Twitter DM.

Is there any way to talk to a live person and share my screen to get some help?

If not, I'll need to abandon Firefox as my default browser after many, many years. It's become a real productivity-killer.

This is the message I get when I send using Thurderbird, with the new version 102.3.0.

  "Sending of the message failed.
  The message could not be sent because connecting to Outgoing server (SMTP) mail.optusnet.com.au failed. 
  The server may be unavailable or is refusing SMTP connections. Please verify that your Outgoing server 
  (SMTP) settings are correct and try again."

I changed the settings and still get the same error. I checked the settings and still get the same error. I restarted computer and the modem etc. The server is still working, as I can use webmail to send emails, and they work. I can only assume something in the new version has changed the way the settings are read.

I was having an issue where FF wouldn't restore my tabs on start. "Recently closed tabs" wasn't available, and when choosing "recently closed windows," 2 - 4 new windows would open, along with one which had the previous session tabs.

I noticed in the task manager that FF wasn't actually closing, so I started using "exit" in the FF menu. Now, even after a computer reboot, when I start FF I see a number of windows open and close quickly, along with a identical "copy" of my windows taskbar sliding in from the left to the right, and "replacing" the current one. I had to record my screen to be sure that's what I was seeing. After the "extra" windows flash open and closed, the FF window with the previous session tabs "slides in" with the "new" windows taskbar.

This does not seem normal to me, as my Windows taskbar has never move before unless I moved it. I'd also like to be able close FF without exiting through the menu, or having to reopen and close several windows if I forget to. This behavior is the same in when I start in safe mode as well. I've never synced FF, or signed for that, and I ran malwarebytes and gotten nothing. Is something wrong here?

Day 5 now:

My TB upgraded from 9x to 102.1.2 and it just kept getting worse - to the point that it is now unusable.

For starters, once the program upgraded from 9x to 102x, I kept getting pop up notices that an upgrade to 102 was available.

And for each upgrade, the "not responding" got worse and worse. Now, with 102.1.2 it is unresponsive the moment it is opened.

If I leave TB open and leave it alone, it eventually will download 100 messages in about an two hours - it download one, then go to not responding for a period, repeat.

Once they are downloaded, and I want to check a message, i.e., to read it, it will go to "not responding".

And to add insult to injury, when I highlight a string of messages to delete, it will delete one, stop responding, repeat, at a slightly faster pace than that of downloading.

I'm using release 102.2.2. My domain and email are hosted at GoDaddy (GD). After moving to a new house on Aug. 30, Thunderbird (TB for short) on my MS laptop can't connect to the account at GD. I use a pw manager and get the error [Enter your password for xxxxxxx.com on outlook.office365.com:"] Entering the pw stored in my password manager for other sites is working well, including this one at Mozilla. The stored login to GD email goes to my inbox on the GD Outlook server, so I assume the GD password works there but it doesn't for the account on TB. GD email imap/pop settings are in the attached image. What can I try next?

I have been using TB for years with the same setup for authentication. I checked EM and retrieved 800+ EMs with no problem and then went back about 5 mins later to check again and got this error:

server does not support the selected authentication method

During this 5 mins TB had auto updated to 102.2.2 from 91.13.0, so this error has to be related. I found one other post about this same thing happening to someone using AOL after upgrade to 102.2.0 but the "solution" was the upgrade to 102.2.2 which apparently caused mine. I have used the same setup at pair for mail for quite some time and nothing has changed in my config or their setup. They note they started seeing auth errors in their logs at this time. I have requested the log entries but they have not sent them. The setup is SSH/TLS with TLS cert. and has been for years. Some type of problem exists between 102.2.2 and the pair server. Since this appears to be some type of major upgrade to TB and I had not rec'd an auto update since 91.13.0 for some reason, I am reluctant to try to go back for fear of some other dbase or file format changes between versions which may cause more problems. They report I am the only one with these auth probs at pair but they are also not aware of anyone else using TB though this seems hard to believe. I am having to DL my raw mailbox file to check EM until resolved. Any help would be appreciated. TIA.

Hi, I am using Ubuntu 20.04LTS and Firefox 104.

My Firefox cleans up on every shutdown. Therefore I have to enter my primary password after every fresh startup, when I open a page that needs a stored password the first time.

I cannot exactly remember since which version, but for like the past 1 or 2 months there is a strange behavior. - Firefox Startup - I open my daily tabs - it shows me 4 Primary Password dialogues (basically 4 Tabs need the credentials)

in the past: - Firefox Startup - I open my daily tabs - it showed only 1 Primary Password dialogue

When I open Firefox and only open 1Tab with a stored credential, the dialogue shows only once, i enter my primary password and from there I can open my daily tabs without a further dialogue.

I think this is an unwanted behavior and needs to be rolled back.
