Hello.

I'm using Thunderbird for many years. After a recent upgrade from version 68.x.x to 78.x.x the application crashes when reading some advertsing mails that contain many pictures. With oldest versions the mail opened immediatly, and pictures seemed to be loaded while scrolling. With last versions, the window stucks, displaying that it's loading the message. I've tried to switch from the 32 bits version to 64 bits one, but it doesn't change anything. I can observe that my consumed memory when Thunderbird is started is about 1.2 GB, and just after opening such a mail, it reaches almost 4 GB which is my total installed memory. Three times of four, the application crashes, or the main windows disappears and lets a zombie process with almost all the allocated memory...

An idea ? Thanks.

Regards.

Tbird auto updated to v78 and now no calendars show. I had three gmail and one Outlook. I can't find any how-to reinstall/enable these calendars for v78. Much exists about earlier versions but most used Add-ons that aren't now available or don't work with v78.

Any suggestions?

Firefox was working normally earlier in the day. I'm not aware of any updates on my computer. I didn't install add-ins. When I click the firefox icon to launch the program, the cursor momentarily has the hourglass symbol then nothing happens. There is not error message. Firefox is not shown in the task manager list. The firewall has mozilla firefox in the list of allowed programs. I've tried rebooting, reinstalling, the refresh tool, deleting appdata files, temp files, anything I could find in the registry with mozilla in the name, then rebooting again then reinstalling. I don't want to go back to Chrome... =(

Dear Mozilla support,

I just switched to firefox and Im having an issue with youtube. When i go to a channels videos and scroll down the page and open a video, when i come back to the previous tab the page resets up to the top. I dont know if this is a scroll anchoring issue or a memory limit issue, Im not sure. Here is how i can replicate the issue every time:

1. go to youtube.com 2. select a channel. 3. go to videos on the channel. 4.sort videos by date (oldest). 5. scroll down a lot and open a random video in a new tab. 6. watch video in full screen for 1 minute. 7. stop video and go back to the first tab. 8. first tab has now reset to the top.

I'm on firefox version 82.0 (64-bit) and i only have ublock origin extension installed. I do not experience this issue with chrome. Please advice.

Thank you.

Yesterday I updated Firefox to version 82 and now it won't start up, it seems to immediately crash. There is no error report dialog box. This is on Windows 10 with the latest patches. I tried restarting the computer, installing Firefox 82 32-bit and 64-bit versions, uninstall + reinstall, and safe mode, but none of these work. (This is on a corporate laptop so I have a limited ability to change internal system settings.) The Windows error from the event log is:

Faulting application name: firefox.exe, version: 82.0.0.7592, time stamp: 0x5f8738dd Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 10.0.17763.1432, time stamp: 0x80224f6f Exception code: 0xc0000409 Fault offset: 0x00000000000a4740 Faulting process id: 0x2998 Faulting application start time: 0x01d6a816d74b6186 Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ntdll.dll Report Id: 5ed88218-3f48-47be-8c6c-aa5af98c902b Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID:

I installed Firefox 81 and that works fine, but it constantly tries to updated and every time I restart it crashes again. It also seems like I can't access my saved logins/passwords in this older Firefox version because it's using a different profile. I'm trying to avoid updating Firefox on my other Windows 10 computer in case it fails in the same way.

Please let me know if you need any more information. Thank you.

I have a weather page (https://www.wunderground.com/dashboard/pws/KIDPLACE7) that has worked for years but it suddenly stopped working a couple of weeks ago. When I enter the URL, the correct page flashes on the screen for 2-3 seconds and then goes to a 404 error. I've tried Firefox, Chrome and IE. They all do the same thing. My buddy, who lives a couple of blocks away, says it works fine at his house. Another friend in another town can also load the page. It's just not working on my computer despite my taking all the steps suggested to resolve the problem

I have also noticed recently that a lot of URLs fail the first time saying that my computer can't make a secure connection but I just refresh the page and it connects every time. Not so with my weather page.
