Recently, a kind volunteer helped me resolve a technical problem I was having with eBay. I have only one start up on my computer now, which is my VPN I have disabled all my Add-ons. I exited out of Firefox, restarted my computer and went directly to ebay and had no trouble signing in or using the site. Yay! I thought it was all fixed. I still wanted to use some very important (to me) add-ons like Ghosterly, and a couple others, which I have had for approximately a year with no problem on ebay. I enable 3 of my favorite addons. I went back to ebay. And, now I can't sign in. They say the password doesn't match. I know that it is correct because I have it written down. When I tried many times, they kept making be "bot verify" When I tried to reset my password, they said I had to chat with someone. I am unable to chat because they say I might have disabled java script. I don't know where to look to see it I have done that. Having a "Senior Moment" here............

....also starting to get frustrated........... grrrrrrr..... I wanted to try to turn on one addon at a time, to see which might be the troublemaker, but never got the chance.

Any thoughts??

Suddenly, Thunderbird 78.9.0 (64-bit) Win10 is very very slow

I don't want to reinstall and have to redo all my settings - anything I can do for this?

All else works OK on the PC, Thunderbird was OK before.

Any way to back up my settings so I don't have to do all that again?


Thank you

Not sure if I chose the correct topic above, but here goes. It is my first time here.

recently, after using the same browser and same site, under the same log in for over 15 years, the pages freeze and I can't do any thing but wait until the error message pops up saying that "a webpage is slowing down your browser, do you want to: "Stop it" or "Wait" I click stop it and then wait a few seconds and I can see the screen glitch and then I can click on something and it will finally work. But, when I try to click on something else the same thing happens over and over again. I have discussed this with the chat agents, but they were no help. Someone from ebay called me after I asked them to and I explained the problem, and that I had cleared my browser cache, cookies, browsing history and it still gives the same error message and still freezes. I do NOT have this problem on any other website or platform. The ebay agent on the phone suggested that I try a different browser as he had no way to diagnose my problem. I asked "If the problem doesn't happen on any other site, how would it be caused by my browser?" He said, he was merely suggesting that as a process of elimination. I started to download another browser today, as this has been going on for far too long, probably two weeks now. Thank you for any suggestions you might have. Taylor

I truly hope somebody can give me some help. I am struggling to understand why my website page containers go nuts on Firefox. I tried so much, I payed a good developer who told me the issue was over, but it is still there. I'm trying everything but my project is being a failure due to very nasty WP Theme issues, like this one. I had to spend my time fixing the Theme and my project completely past its deadline. Maybe I'm going to be fired, without fox.

I clearly cannot add site credentials for anybody, but maybe some developer knows what could be of help.

It seems that the issue has something to do with page Container and Flex attribute. The website is a Wordpress site and the page is built with WPBakery Visual Editor. All updated, no customizations, pages should work easy... As you can see the page title is ok, but then inside the main page container, the Visual Editor rows (which have display = flex) behave as if they had no width. Despite that, changing the flex attribute to display = block targeting FF specifically through Css, it doesn't seem to work either. It's not something simple just as a Row option inside the Visual Editor.

Please see attachments. Many pages behave like that. My questions: - is there a possibility to speak with Firefox assistance and get a clue? - did any developer from community, experience something similar before? How did you manage to solve it? - Firefox, why are you behaving like that with an old supporter?

Thank you to anybody spending his time to help.

I'm using the latest TB on W10 entirely up-to-date. TB will not open at all, regardless of where I'm trying to open it: desktop; taskbar; start list. I cannot start in safe mode. I cannot refresh TB. There are no error messages of any kind. The only thing that works is a clean re-install after a complete uninstall, and that only works for a day or two. No one can afford to uninstall and reinstall TB every time they want to read their mail. My PC is a Dell Optiplex GX620 Pentium. I've unloaded all new additions except the usual W10 updates. Nothing works. I'd most appreciate any suggestions. All other programs (Firefox, LibreOffice, W10) work fine.

I have a profile with several E-Mail accounts of which one disappeared and I don't know why. I diffed my current pref.js against the latest backup and found that (apart from minor changes) two lines are missing in the current version:

user_pref("mail.account.account6.identities", "id4"); user_pref("mail.account.account6.server", "server7");

Might this be the reason? And would it be a good idea to paste the lost lines into the current prefs.js to recover the Account?

I create a new blank message, type something into the subject field, save, and close the window. My drafts folder displays the new message, but instead of my subject line there are three dots. When I open the draft again, the subject line indeed consists of three dots. Replacing the dots again by some text does not solve the problem, after saving it will still have three dots. Thus, I cannot save subject lines in drafts. The same for templates. What's going wrong here?

This is on Windows 10, newest Thunderbird release version 78.9.1 (32-bit).

Mozilla Firefox 78.8.0esr, Debian 10.9 (x86-64), no add-ons, and none of the pages are loading.

Hi everyone, just wanted to check if someone had this issue before or knows a solution please. Since yesterday, non of the pages in Firefox are loading. On the same computer, using other browsers there are no issues at all.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. Purged it as well. Tested with a new profile, (firefox -P...) , same results, nothing loads. No error messages or anything. I will just have the small loading dash on the firefox tab and that's it.

I can't even access localhost, or the troubleshooting settings or the web developer tools. Nothing will open at all.

I found this thread mentioning that it might be related to libnss3. But I have the most recent and stable version available already installed: 2:3.42.1-1+deb10u3

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=981184

I uninstalled firefox, removed the folder .mozilla and just tried to make sure no trace of Firefox is left. Reinstalled it again, same thing...

I have a VPN, and the same results also with or without the VPN connected.

Any ideas please?

Thanks! Have a good day!

I am using Thunderbird 78.9.1 (64bit) on Windows 10. I accidently deleted all messages (more than 21,000) from my Inbox and did NOT have them go to Trash folder. The deleted messages are NOT on the ISP’s server anymore. Thunderbird tells me that messages I have deleted can be purged from disk and this will save 1.6 GB disk space, so the email messages are still on my PC.

The deleted messages are NOT shown in Thunderbird. X-Mozilla-Status is 0001 for all messages. I’ve changed it to 0000 but the messages are still not displayed.

Any suggestion on how I can see these messages in the INBOX again would be greatly appreciated.

i don't know if the problem lies within firefox or not. i am able to sign into the site via chrome tho. when i try to sign into spectrum (as i have many times w/o issue) it does some blinking or flashing loading type thing and ends with this message: -- We're sorry, something didn't work quite right. Please try again. IDID-1060 --. this is going on for 3? weeks now. i have called tech support through spectrum with no help. they could get in on their end and we changed pw's but it didn't help me. also--and i have no idea if this matters at all, but it disturbs me... the padlock right beside the address box says -verified by amazon-. why is that? at times when i have hovered that at websites, it says verified by, and the name of my security service. i can't 100% say that i have checked it when signing into spectrum tho, but still i don't understand why it would say amazon! i much prefer using firefox! but i also feel like i shouldn't have to use chrome part time to get to certain sites or do certain things. PLEASE PLEASE help me figure this out.

P.S. i am already forced to use chrome to play games on facebook for years now. except bingo blitz, which is odd to me. i can play that through firefox. sighs.

Hi! I use Firefox Nightly on Android. I found a strange behaviour. When I click "three-dots" button on my bottom bar, and the list of menus shows up, I see only half of it, like in landscape mode (but I'm in portrait mode), when I try to swipe on it, it goes back to normal and I see the whole list, but no matter what I click, nothing happens. When I click on something before swiping, it works.

I updated Win 10 Pro to version 20H2 and now Firefox will not start. No error message; no appearance in Task Manager. Here's what I've tried to no avail:

1) Uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox several times, including manually removing all remaining Firefox files (including my profile folder) after uninstall.

2) Tried to start Firefox with administrative privileges.

3) Clean booted Windows and tried to start.

4) Turned off Windows Firewall and tried to start.

5) Tried to start in Windows Safe Mode.

6) Extensive Google searches to try to find a solution.

Oddly, Microsoft Edge will not start either, but Chrome starts and works normally.

This is but one example of why I have held off as long as possible from doing major Windows updates over the decades that I've used Windows.
