Good day, i met next issue with Coockes transfer during redirections (i suppose that).

I.e. when i try to download smth from Google drive i got: An error occurred during a connection to doc-0o-ag-docs.googleusercontent.com.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

I try to follow standard advises such as disable tracking and cookies blocking (as well i disable fingerprints and all addons and delete all cookies and history storage and it's didn't help at all).

I try to download in private mod as well, but got stacked with same issue. With Chromium all works fine.

Firefox version (nightly): 78.0a1 (2020-05-28) (64-bit)

I try to download with vanilla Firefox - same result.

Since I upgraded my macbook to Catalina, I found that my macbook can longer automatically go to sleep when the lid is open. And the culprit seems to be the firefox browser, because in the activity monitor, it always shows that firefox is preventing the sleep.

Is there any reason that firefox is preventing my laptop to sleep? And how can I turn it off.

I'll be browsing a website, and with no rhyme or reason Firefox (on Windows PC) will decide that this website no longer exists and is no longer available, even the page I was on 2 minutes prior is no longer available (it even tried telling me that mozilla.org no longer existed). But the same site continues to work fine on the Firefox on my Android device.

The sites eventually "come back", but it's not very productive for a site to "disappear" in the middle of something.

I am running T-bird v60.9 on an old Mac with OS 10.9. I know it's hard to believe, but I do not want to update to v68 until an annoying issue with the Calendar is fixed (if it's ever fixed). Can I stop the "Wouldn't you like to update" dialog from popping up every day? Don't worry, I am running T-bird 68 (with the broken Calendar) on a newer Mac, so I'm not totally in the woods.

Thank you.

My problem with Thunderbird is that some of my email boxes are not visible on the left pane. I have an iMac running OS 10.15.4. Background: The Thunderbird app got corrupted, I then: • exported the Thunderbird Profile files and saved it. • I Completely erased the Thunderbird app. • I newly downloaded and installed Thunderbird. • I checked and the app worked perfectly. • I followed instructions for importing the old profile, but only imported the email folders. They now show up within the new profile folder, but are not visible in the display pane. How can I make these imported folders become visible with the emails they contain? The instructions I’ve found are only for Windows PCs. Thank you for any help you can provide.

How do I delete individual autocomplete entries on Firefox for Android?

All responses I see are for the PC version. This question was asked and archived 6 years ago, and the only answer was that it couldn't be done. You can only delete all personal data, not individual entries. Please tell me that Firefox figured out how to do this, given 6 years to work on it.

Hello,

I love Firefox. Thanks for making it and please keep up the good work. I used Firefox for years, switched to Chrome for about 10 and have now come back to Firefox again. Love the browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory config option. This was crucial to me returning to Firefox and I suggest you make this the default.

Anyway...

The issue I'm writing this for is that Firefox seems to be preventing my computer from sleeping. When I run

powercfg /requests

from a command prompt run as administrator, I get the following info: SYSTEM: [DRIVER] Realtek High Definition Audio (HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0255&SUBSYS_10251259&REV_1000\5&26841d0a&0&00) An audio stream is currently in use. [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume9\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume9\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume9\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume9\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume9\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume9\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume9\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume9\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume9\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe

This seems to show Firefox running audio that is preventing the computer from sleeping. However, none of the tabs are currently playing any audio. Thought I'd report the issue here.

I have asked this before as it has been an ongoing issue. So, for years, I know all about bypassing any antivirus and unchecking Windows Search etc etc. Safe mode is pretty much ridiculous as a concept because who in their right mind could ever operate a computer in safe mode just because a software was failing?

The only extensions I use are Google Cal and Lightening

It is now back to where Thunderbird is basically unusable. It constantly freezes and I wait anywhere from 30-60 seconds each time for it to unfreeze. It is random, but seems to happen when TB is checking incoming mail and I am trying to type an email. I waste so much time now just sitting at my desk and staring at the screen waiting and waiting.

I have a high end system, W10 with i7 3.2 Intel chip and 64G of ram. I also have massive TB profile and folders, like enormous. I have performed compression and I even recently deleted a crapload of Archive folders. But I do have hundreds and hundreds of folders and sub-folders and mail going back a long, long way chronologically.

I don't know what to do...but it is incredibly frustrating. I have been using this software for 15-20 years and I have the workflow streamlined. I dread having to attempt to use another software but TB is basically unusable for me now. It is totally inefficient to just sit there and stare at the screen waiting for it to stop puking.

Essentially I had to reset my PC and restore it. However I did not have the intelligence to make a copy of my Firefox data / bookmarks / passwords etc.

I always have sync turned on and I assumed that when I logged back into my account after the restore my data would sync back down. Unfortunately for the life of me I can not get firefox to sync to my browser.

It's the only PC I had with Firefox so I can even restore from a different device. I'm at a loss as to what I could possible do at this stage.

I am thinking of moving our mail profile to a local network drive. So went to look at what locking mechanism to prevent concurrent access (I am a retired senior systems analyst). I found the parent.lock file and read about it. But is does NOT seem to be in use by 68.8.1 I can open T'Bird with the lock file present, nor does it delete it upon closing.

Has this gone away in 68.8.1 (I saw some references ti questions about the lock file specify 68.8.0 and earlier only)

If so, been replaced by a different mechanism?
