Hello

A few weeks ago, I really struggled to install my profile on my laptop and I eventually deleted Thunderbird, reinstalled it and then managed to migrate my profile and everything worked fine

But today, I needed to use my laptop and when I try to launch Thunderbird, i get these strange popup windows (see screenshots)

If i then click on Thunderbird in the task bar and chose another command like "write an email ", the contents of the pop up window changes slightly but Thunderbird remains unusable as the normal windows do not appear

Can anybody help please?

Thanks

Showing all passwords in a list view as it was in the old password manager was really helpful. I tried to install this: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=3062276

But unfortunately with the newest Firefox 84 it is not working anymore. I get an error message.

Is there any other possibility to reactivate the old password manager? There are countless of people and threads on the internet wanting this feature back. Mozilla made a step backwards here unfortunately.

Thank you for your help!

https://www.nectar.com/ has changed. The log in page is now:- https://www.nectar.com/id/start/enter-card-number The saved password for https://www.nectar.com doesn't appear or work on this page. The automatic 'Saving 'new' password' doesn't appear or work. Deleting and saving the new address https://www.nectar.com/id/start/enter-card-number doesn't work either because Firefox Logins and passwords deletes everything after .com?

Round and round and round we go.

Why is there no way to contact Firefox? Nobody on/in the Community can make the required technical changes?

So this is all just frustration and time wasting?

Shouldn't Firefox have recognised this themselves and made the necessary changes?

Hi all,

Have a new Dell XPS, using Chrome as my primary browser.. however its a pig on power consumption. I recently switched back to Windows, was a iOS user for last 10 years.. Remember the good Windows XP Firefox days...

I am unable to go back using the track pad, my gesture when I swipe with two fingers from left to right doesn't work... However this works just fine on MS Edge, or on Chrome. I am able to scroll up and down, and zoom in and out of text using my track pad, but my back gesture doesn't work... Has anyone had this issue before?

All the best, GB

I bought a new computer. I am unable to add one of my two email accounts to Thunderbird. The first works without a problem. The 2nd says I put in the wrong username and password, which I did not do.

Furthermore, I was trying to see if the problem repeated in my old computer, deleting my gmail accounts from thunderbird, and then trying to re add them.

The first account added without a problem, as before. However, I was unable to add the 2nd account as with the new computer, with the same error message.

I tried changing the password in gmail for the 2nd account. The new password would not allow me to re add to Thunderbird on both my old and new computers.

Any solutions, prior to my looking for an alternative to Thunderbird? (which I really otherwise like)?

While I appreciate the recent improvements to the Firefox Print interface and features, there are still lingering formatting issues that have existed for a very long time. The most common issue is that portions of content get cut off between pages. Here is one example:

https://www.nolas.com/home/#menus - click FOOD category near top - open Print (does not matter if "Save to PDF" or printer is selected) - default print settings

In the print preview (left side), printed page or saved PDF there are missing parts of text: - beginning of page 4 cuts off from "SHARE PLATES" to half-way through the first item's description. - top of page 8 (under "NOLA CLASSICS") one of the 6 items is missing entirely.

This issue remains even when using different scale factors.

Tested on current software: - Firefox 86.0.1 (new profile) - macOS 10.12 -through- 10.15

Since around April 1st, the RSS feeds in Thunderbird won't update anymore. I have about 80 feeds, and none of them will update. I have no problems with email which are still working.

I also exported the list of feeds, and created a new profile where I imported the feeds list, but I have the same problem. When I click on "Get Messages" in a given feed or "Blog & News Feed" nothing happens at all, as it's not even trying to access the feeds. I used to have a message on the bottom left saying which feed it was downloading, but now nothing.

Normally with LastPass you can get LastPass to open a protected web site in a new tab, then populate the login fields, typically user name and password or secondly you can open the website login page, and select the Last Pass icon, either directly from the website login field or from the LastPass icon on the Firefox bar and select 'fill'.

Now I sign into Lastpass (using the icon on the address bar), and the Lastpass dialogue box appears, instead of the dialogue box 'populating', it remains blank. Likewise for all the other options above.

LastPass support have suggested using different browsers. Embarrassingly, I reluctantly installed EDGE, and it works normally! I don't want to use EDGE!

Clearly something has changed?

Hello guys,

maybe its just obvious and I am unable to point it down to the right keywords for my google research but I could not find this feature:

I want to create several "calendar views", each containing a set of relevant calendars for the specific view.

Example: I have 4 calendars:

1.Work 2.Wife's Work 3.Private 4.Soccer

Now, what I want to do is to create profiles, to show a only one or a combination of these calendars. e.g:

Profile: "work only" Showing Calendars: 1. Work 2.Wife's Work

Hidden Calendars: 3. Private 4. Soccer

Profile: "spare time" Showing Calendars: 3. Private 4. Soccer

Hidden Calendars: 1. Work 2.Wife's Work


As you can imagine it gets even more useful the more calendars you have... Is there any feature for this? How can I achieve this?

Thank you very much

The firefox browser does not prompt to select a valid user client authentication certificate (stored in the Windows cert store under Personal User certs) for access to sites. This means the browser can not be used for certificate based MFA.

Changing the browser to use system certs (security.enterprise_roots.enabled = True) does not help resolve the issue

In recent version Firefox blocks all popups in the private mode even on sites, where I have popups enabled in normal mode. I am pretty sure it is a new behavior. Popups can be enabled even in private mode, but it is not saved. In some earlier version Firefox in the private mode used to apply popup settings from both private and normal mode. Is there any way to get this behaviour back except downgrade ?
