web pages don't display but address is shown at tabs, can't see options but other menu options seem to be okay. I uninstalled and erased all related data (I could find) multiple times and reinstalled multiple times but problem remains. I tried refresh, safe mode, etc. At installation I get error VCRUNTIME140_1.dll not found, a susequent installation finishes without errors. I am sending this from another system because I can't use the problem unit for this post. The problem system is similar to this one. I am puzzled and seek help.

For days I had been trying to figure out why the build in PW manager in FF on Android stopped working.

After reaching out and not getting any answers here I finally found the answer.

Here: https://www.reddit.com/r/oneplus/comments/gbdab7/lockbox_not_opening/

You phone security and lock screen is preventing FF mobile from opening the build it password manager. It DID work on previous versions of FF because I have always had my lock screen on Note 8 set to drawing a pattern to unlock phone. But in latest version YOU broke it Mozilla!!

The build in version does not require downloading the FF lockwise addon either!

It's very easy to re-create the issue. Turn any of your phones security lock screen logons to anything but NONE and it will break the function of FF Lockwise!

Thanks goes to the person who created the reddit post!

Hello there, sorry for my english, that's not my mother tongue.

Not on purpose, i've created a folder with Thunderbird, in my imap account, named as : [*] Something

Since i've deleted it, i've got a phantom folder (grey and italic folder) named like this : 5 Something.

Every single time I try to delete it, Thunderbird recreate in place a new incremental-numbered-folder, like "7 Something" then "9 Something", and so one... As i keep delete it, it create me another one in place.

I've try all the tips to "delete" a phantom folder (as create a new folder with the same name then delete it, or just "unsubscribe") but nothing works.

Do you have any solution ?

Thanks a lot

Cheers

My tabs are frequently crashing and some strange behaviors occur with firefox after these crashes (adblock failing to work until browser restart, browser going blank for a split second). My browser also occasionally crashes, and even more infrequently my entire computer will crash which usually happens after series of tabs crashing in a row. It may be a ram issue but I have no problems with any other programs on my computer so I doubt that.

Win X was installing the latest patches today (patchday)

Rebooted, started TB and didn't get into the inbox. TB asking for pwd and that's it. Tabs of Mailbox and Add-Ons Manager are showing the turning circle (don't know what's the name of this). I can see the subjects of the older messages in the preview, but can't highlight one of them. TB Menu is visible but not accessible. Can't open it.

Had the same issue when updating to 78.9.1. Fixed it by reinstalling 78.8.1, latest working release for me.

But now, reinstalling the old version doesn't help anymore. Not even 78.7.1

Thanks a lot for your quick help and your ideas!

This week my Firefox browser was updated. Afterward, the "old Firefox files" folder appeared on desktop (Mac book Air 2017) I did a quick search to find out if I needed that folder and found it could be deleted. MANY times over the years I have deleted that folder after an update with never an issue, so I deleted it! Later when I got on my computer, I found all my logins were gone! And there appears to be a new login manager called "Lockwise." After doing a lot of searching on how to get back those logins it appears I needed the Old Files folder because it contained a file of those logins. WHY didn't they migrate automatically to the new Firefox?? I've NEVER had this happen previously. I DO have Firefox on my iPhone 12 Pro Max and all those logins are there, but I see no way to get them from the phone to the Mac book. I can only "sync" on each end which is doing nothing. So now when I go to a regularly visited site, I type in my username and password and the little box pops up as usual, asking me if I want to save it. I click to save it but when I go back to that site next time, it's not saved. When I go into my Firefox account and click on logins, it says I have none saved! And it gives me an option to begin typing in logins there manually. So I type in that log in and save it. I go back to that website and it is NOT saved! Not only have I lost all my logins, but I cannot even begin to repopulate them again. This HORRIBLE new "Lockwise" has ruined my Firefox experience on my Mac book! What can be done at this point, to fix this issue? P.S. it also tells me to log into Lockwise?? It shows I am logged in at the upper right corner.

Debugging steps:

   Tried clearing the cache & reloading
   Tried disabling ell extensions+ running browser in Safe Mode.
   Tried several different streams: some streams w/ no customization might fix the problem, but it's not entirely clear to me which streams are "completely" customization-free.
   Tried different browser: Edge does not exhibit this issue

The Problem:

Been noticing this problem in Firefox at https://cytu.be over the last couple of months; this seems to be happening with any stream on the site, ; I don't remember exactly when I started noticing it. This is observed directly on the website, not any third-party site.

Messing with stuff outside of the web player seems to have a tendency to break the web player's volume control, resulting in its volume maxing out and desyncing from the video stream; it almost sounds at times like the audio stream is restarting from the beginning of whatever video is playing, while the video stream continues as normal. I've seen it happen mostly while using a wireless remote + Fliirc to adjust settings (mainly OS volume, brightness, and f.lux settings) but it can also happen from my keyboard, as well as manipulating the web player's volume control too much, and also zooming in/out the webpage too much. Clearing the cache & reloading doesn't work, and neither does disabling all add-ons, or running Firefox in Safe Mode. The only solution I've found so far is to refresh the webpage.

Spoke with site's developer, who remarked that he had not heard of anyone else experiencing this bug, and suggested it must be a Firefox issue; something about how the browser interacts with the OS' audio subsystem is probably causing this bug.

Does not seem to happen in latest version of Edge, for some reason.

Running the latest build of Windows 10 64-Bit Windows 10 64-bit OS Build 19042.928 and Firefox 64-bit 87.0.

As installed, TB would automatically choose a contrasting color for text when replying to an email with a dark or light background. But at some point I changed the text color for a given email. After that I am unable to restore the default behavior no matter what I do. I have gone through all the settings that pertain to text and background color and even after setting them all to the default it still doesn't work.

For example, now when I try to reply to an HTML email that has a white background, TB is defaulting to white text, which of course renders the text invisible. Using the compose toolbar I manually select black text and make it the default, but as soon as I type the first character, it switches itself back to white on white.

At the moment, the only way I can reply to an HTML email with a white background is to select the invisible text after the fact and change it to black. Not very practical.

Firefox Design. Continously and automatically backing up Sessions to an additional file and folder of my choice

A problem I'm not sure Firefox has addressed or resolved in all the years I've been using Firefox - even after it changed its programming, and the way it saves session (or even bookmark) backups to the profile folder, is: whenever Firefox is forced to shut down after a computer software issue (like freezing, blue screen, extreme sluggishness, etc.), and we presume (with fingers crossed) that Firefox will open back up with all our tabs intact for the past 7 - 20 days, but instead opens with them all missing and forever gone - even after immediately and instinctively proceeding to the profile folder (before shutting down Firefox) to recover them using Mozilla's recovery steps to replace the "places.sqlite" file, I periodically find that every single one of the recovery files has been re-stamped with the same date and time (and missing data) as the new places.sqlite file.

So I hope and pray, that because this issue happens to thousands of Firefox users over time - no matter what Firefox version update their using (because it has happened in several versions for me), that a terrific way to prevent forcing users to find and use a great sessions manager addon that saves tabs (with all their history - that won't also crash or easily be written over), or forcing users to constantly worry and remind themselves to manually backup the required profile files daily, or having to remember minimally, to backup the profile files "before" opening Firefox after a crash, (which seldom happens), that Firefox offers its users the option to set Firefox up to continuously and automatically save a complete new (additional) set of backup files to a different folder of the user's choosing, with the extra option to save a "set" number of session backups, where Firefox can't access them upon opening. Imagine how much anguish, anger and self loathing Firefox will eliminate in the world with this one simple option.

Here's another wish-list item. If Firefox could present the list of open Firefox windows that appear at the top right of the screen whenever hovering the mouse over the Firefox icon in the taskbar, I wish for the popup list to permanently nudge down so it "never" covers up my open tabs in each of the open window's (which is how I know I determin which of the numerous windows to navigate). And of course the list should self adjust whenever I turn the "Menu Bar" on or off. Thank you, in advance, for considering these two important items toward the Firefox experience.

If you're wondering why I haven't moved on to the latest version. It's because I all too "often" encounter my valuable "business" addons no longer working, and the miserable task of trying to go back to the previous version, or trying to find new addons that work half as good. Sometimes all of my addons disappear. I also wish I could turn off Firefox's constant reminder, to upgrade since I've asked twice before, with no Mozilla reply. Thank you again.
