Can someone please help me understand the list of what is "Blocked" and "Allowed" on my browser. I've included a screenshot below. What I'm not understanding is where Enhanced Tracking Protection has the sites listed under "ALLOWED" and why those sites are allowed instead of being Blocked. I hope this doesn't mean what I can only assume it means in which case I personally would never allow. Thank you in advance for your time and support.

Hi, I am Cristian Grava. I am using Thunderbird since a long time ago but since yesterday I didn't receive anymore my messages from yahoo (I tried with gmail but I have the same problem). I am using a pop.mail.yahoo.com, with port 995, SSL/TLS as I used since a long time ago. The status of Thunderbird is "Connected to pop.mail.yahoo.com ..." but nothing happens (usually ask me to introduce my password and after that downloads the messages but now nothing). Please help me to solve the problem. Thank you and have a nice day, Cristian Grava

This is basically a copy of what I put in the Ubuntu forum. The problem is the same, no matter where I post it.

Originally I was using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.

I thought it would be good to update to GG (20.10) though I did briefly try FF (20.04).

As the install was done on an existing 18.04 version things remained the same for programs, book marks, etc.

Ok, now the crunch: I USE Firefox ""A LOT"". When it loads, there are...... 8 x 6 windows of FireFox and each of those have anywhere from one to ""THIRTY"" tabs loading.

Believe me: ""It worked!!""

I could use it, also run other tasks as well - though a VM was pushing it with the RAM. But the entire machine worked.

Now, I am lucky if FireFox loads at all. Let alone let me browse.

When it loads some of the window's tops are flashing. A screen shot does not really show this. (I tried)

All that has changed is the O/S from 18.04 and Firefox from (what ever it was) to 83.0

I don't want this to be a finger pointing exercise between Mozilla and Ubuntu. I would prefer it is helpful to all.

What have I tried? I've tried starting FireFox with all addons disabled. Still happens.

I am going to try to remember to (next time) launch FireFox from a Terminal and pipe the output to a file to look for things.

The machine I am using has shown it is well up to being able to have this running. I have had it working for a few years like this.

This post is (for now) to establish there is a problem. I will post more information when I get it, rather than waiting to get it then post, as I feel there are a lot of people who have very similar problems and I want it known: ""You are not alone!""


Now a bit of extra stuff.

Other things which are weird: When I am watching stuff - youtube for example - the playback is/WAS jerky. I hadn't touched anything in the settings.

After digging around, I discovered that I had to turn ""OFF"" the hardware acceleration for the graphics. Question: How did it get turned on? (Semi rhetorical)

I have a lot of local pages I open with passwords. When I load them the CPU load goes through the roof and nearly invariably the program just exits. No crash report.

Which is a good 50% of how it happens. The other 50% is the machine just locks up and I have to power it down.

Bluetooth headsets continuously toggling call mode when using microphone

In recent weeks, calls with audio have become buggy in Firefox. Whenever I engage in a call that accesses the microphone while I have a bluetooth headset connected, the headset starts continuously toggling call mode on and off for an extended duration. This can be anywhere from 10 seconds/3ish toggles to never-ending (meaning I got tired of waiting after about 3 minutes/55ish toggles).

Today I finally decided to debug further. Here are my findings:

  • Problem only exists in Firefox. I tested with Safari, Chromium, Slack and Discord, with no trouble presenting itself in any of them
  • Problem relates to all bluetooth headsets. I have tested with Sennheiser Momentum 2 Wireless and Steelseries Arctis Pro Wireless, with both exhibiting the problem in Bluetooth mode. If I have no bluetooth headsets connected, the problem does not present itself. There is also no problem if I connect the Arctis using the wireless base station (which in turn is connected to the laptop by USB) instead of bluetooth. Using the base station, call and non-call are exposed to my mac as different/simultaneous channels — this may have something to do with it.
  • Problem persists with hardware acceleration toggled off
  • Problem persists in safe mode
  • Problem persists in private mode
  • Problem persists both on Whereby.com and Discord.com. On Whereby, it also interferes with the camera. This leads me to believe it might have something to do with WebRTC, as I think both websites use it.
  • Problem persists after reinstalling Firefox
  • On a possibly related note: if I end the voice chat session after it has stabilised, call mode toggles off slowly and always sends a "start playing media" signal to my Mac, even if it didn't pause anything when toggling call mode on.

In sum, this leads me to believe there is some sort of bug in Firefox causing this, but the lack of other topics on here with the same problem makes me skeptical. I am open to any suggestions with regards to further testing I can do. This is obviously very annoying, and I would like to have bluetooth calls working again.

Hello Community,

I opened Thunderbird this morning and my Gmail email is not downloading. Also, it seems like I am able to send email messages but it gives me an error saying it can't save a copy to Sent folder due to network or file access errors.

The last time I was using my email was on Friday, 11/27 and everything worked as normal. Any help getting my Thunderbird working with Gmail again would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Hi Guys. I've been using Daily now for a few years, like about 6 or 7 and its great, except for the never ending consistently interfering updates! Please add an option to not check and ask for updates. I shall do them when I have the time and need. I do PLC and electronics development privately and the never ending popups for updates, activates and confuses issues that causes havoc in my programming and programs. This means that I have to shut down Daily and then my mail box gets congested because I forget to restart Daily. Thank you so much. Regards Chris.

I have just made the mistake of downloading one of the almost daily "updates".

It has totally f'd-up my files. All the read emails have disappeared - I needed to respond to some of them. I have a folder "Retain" - this has been cleared of all these important emails. There's now f'all in my Archives.

There's an old maxim - If it aint broke - don't fix it! For crissake - learn and observe it!

Recently, it seems, Moz has been afflicted with some ninny-nanny who is determined to change everything - perhaps they imagine they are improving stuff - they aren't!

It would be nice if you could alert us end users that this will/might happen before we hit the 'update' button. Might save a lot of heartache & frustration. Had I known about this, I never would have updated.

Thanks for reading.

I am migrating my wordpress based website to a new computer with a LEMP stack on Ubunto 20.04. I wish to access and test the website using the firefox browser offline. I have modified my local dns (/etc/hosts) file to include my site's url but firefox can't find it. Firefox manages to find the nginx greeting and it finds phpmyadmin which is used to manage my database, but it can't locate the wordpress web pages.

One might think I had a problem with my nginx server blocks, but that's not the case because google chrome finds the web pages with no problem.

FIrefox appears to reach out to the internet dns by default and ignore the localhost dns settings. So how do I change Firefox's default settings so that it can access websites on the same computer like Google Chrome does?
