Hello there,

since the FF90.xx I can´t paste anymore in the World of Tank EU forum. I did refresh firefox and tried it without addons and in private mode and it does not work. The only chance that I can paste is in the mobile version from the used IP.Board. I can´t even see the paste/einfügen option in the posting section.

I have some other members inside the community that reported the same issue to me.

It would be nice to get some help/ideas.

With best regards.

Hi, I installed thunderbird beta around version 93 and since then the memory usage on my computer increased to take all of the free space when I open TB. Up to 30GB. I would like to get back to a non-beta version but cannot easily since i have old email accounts on it, no longer synchronised (I would not be able to download these emails again). I also guess that transferring the profile would result in the similar 30GB usage. I am now at TB 98 and still have that problem. I have tried the "remove duplicate messages" add-on which doesn't delete everything. I have multiple occurrences of the same emails with possibly altered content. Any way this could be fixed? Thanks a lot!

Thunderbird random crashing @ OOM | large -and- @ OOM | small; xul.dll in crash thread. Cause: Bitdefender? (mookien)

I recently updated to Thunderbird version 78.8.1 (32-bit) on my Windows 10 machine and it crashes at random. I was previously using version 60.9.1 without issue. The crash reports indicate that xul.dll is the culprit. There are several entries--in red--that indicate xul.dll only, so I'm assuming that this is the issue. Any idea how to address this?

I have multiple (IMAP) email accounts on my TB profile from various hosts including IONOS, Hostgator, A2, and Google. I didn't have any issues when I was using an older version of Thunderbird but now the crashing is persistent. This is happening at both work and home; I'm using the same email profile for both. It's also happening for other users at my company who have recently upgraded. Different A/V for home/work PCs so not sure that this is the issue.

Using the following add-ons: Manage Emails (Nostalgy++), Manually sort folders, Provider for Google Calendar, Quickfolders, and Remove Duplicate Messages. Tried to restart with add-ons disabled and was still crashing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I've had issues with the 68.2 release. Thunderbid does not open, I just get crash reporter. With versions 68.0 and 68.1, if I uninstalled it and reinstalled, Thunderbird would open. But with version 68.2, all I get is Crash Reporter. I updated Thunderbird on my laptop too and I'm having the same issue. So I now have no access to my emails. Something is terribly wrong.

Hello,

I've spent several hours today trying to fix FireFox slow start up on my system. After start up (about 2 full minutes), everything works normally. The hardware is an ASUS A88xm-A MB, A10-6800K processor, 16G DDR3, runs OS and programs off an SSD. I worked through all the slow startup suggestions, ran memtest (0 Errors, 1 Pass), disabled all add ons, (even the OpenH264 video codec (I use the onboard HDMI, no graphics card)), turned off hardware acceleration, etc. When starting in troubleshoot mode, less than 30 seconds, (acceptable), but I really don't know where to begin with the "More Troubleshooting Information" when I look at the table generated by it. There have been no other problems to date with the system, and the long start-up time began with 20.04 Ubuntu (about a minute), then got worse when I upgraded to 22.04 to try to solve THAT problem. Currently running FF 104.0, and the update page says wait for a distro update if that is how it was installed. I believe 104.0 is the latest Linux 64b version though. All updates to the system are done as soon as I'm notified of them. there have been none since the upgrade a few days ago.

Any suggestions? Gotta get some sleep now... TIA, Dave

Hi guys! Stripe.com crashes FF. The site only displays about halfway down its homepage, then crashes FF. I've cleared cookies, all history, removed and reloaded FF, turned off tracking protection for Stripe at the address bar, lowered tracking settings to standard in FF, turned off hardware acceleration, and contacted Stripe directly. But they can't help with browser specific issues accept to offer standard solutions, which I already tried. Also, Stripe works fine in Chrome.

I'm using 1password extension, and for plugins: OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. and Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. I deactivated both those plugins but no use. Ideas? Thanks! Ken

I just installed Thunderbird on a new Windows 10 PC yesterday. Everything worked, for a while.

When I went to use TB later at night I could not open TB & got a message it was already running but not responding. There were 2 instances showing in Task Manager but I could not close them. Sometimes when I tried a message came up saying "The operation could not be completed" and "Access is denied". I had to power off the PC to clear out TB.

TB was working again but just to be safe I uninstalled and reinstalled it. And it continued to work after that. Until this morning, and now the same problem.

In addition, when I went to use Firefox it now had the same problem. FF was installed several days ago but there never was a problem till now. There were several instances of FF in Task Manager and I could end most of them, but there was one where I got the "The operation could not be completed" and "Access is denied".

Now the PC was stuck with TB and FF that could not be closed, and I had to power off the PC to clear them out.

Any suggestions on how to fix this problem would be appreciated. Thanks

iMac macOS 11.5 Firefox 90.0.2

Firefox pretty much crashed every time I quit. Doesn't matter if I'm looking at a web page or close all windows before quitting.

Restarting in Trouble Shoot mode doesn't help either.

The cause seems to be synchronisation - if I sign out of my account and no longer synchronise, the problem goes away and I can quit without Firefox crashing.

Firefox v87.0 now "not responding" constantly under Win10

Beginning 3 days ago, for no reason I know of, Firefox has become sluggish and active windows frequently report that they are "not responding": the cursor will spin, character entry is impossible, scrolling can't be invoked, and even clicks on other open tabs are ignored. (As an example, it has required more than 5 minutes to enter this text so far, even though I am now running in Safe Mode.)

Memory and system utilization usage is unchanged from earlier views under Task Manager (FF with many windows/tabs open may take on average 1524MB out of 32GB on the machine, and perhaps 5% of the cores, more or less).

I have opened no new or never-used-before tabs in this period, and have also closed a handful of them to see whether that produced any difference in these symptoms. (It did not.)

As mentioned I am operating in Safe Mode and these errors persist. In any case my only add-on is Adblock Plus. I upgraded FF to v87.0 last night on the chance that the version change would make a difference, with negative results.

At the moment Troubleshooting info indicates that I have "9/9" Multiprocess Windows, and I will try to include an image from that page.

These hangs occur in all windows, so the fundamental problem appears to be in a more basic process.

No other function on the pc is misbehaving in any way, but FF itself is now nearly unusable.

The only temporary cure I have found is to restart FF, after which there are no occurrences of non-responsive windows for a period of only 3 minutes to 15 minutes (during which FF memory and cpu utilization are generally constant).

Reinstalling FireFox or engaging in further profile updates or about:config changes are all well in scope for this problem determination. The one restriction here is that I cannot afford to lose my current windows/tab entries.

Many thanks in advance for all assistance, questions, and suggestions!

On my laptop (Macbook Pro 2020; macOS 10.15.7), in Thunderbird (78.6.1; 64-bit), within only one email account (IMAP; server type = owl), the messages I see in every folder for that account disappear every time Thunderbird checks for new messages. (I have changed the time value to verify this.) This of course just started happening today, has worked fine for many months before this (even last night), and I recall no changes having been made to trigger this.

I can see the messages in any given folder again "if" I click on another folder and then back on that original folder. It is as if Thunderbird is forced to reload/re-show them. Or, I can right click on any folder, choose Properties and then click Repair Folder. This, too will restore visibility to the messages, until Thunderbird checks for new messages; whereupon, they all disappear again.

In order to give you wonderfully helpful people more information, just in case...

  • I did add this email account in Thunderbird using the Owl for Exchange extension, which has worked great. I do not know if it may be the culprit. Restarting Thunderbird in Safe Mode cannot verify this operation since the account is not even available when doing so.
  • I have multiple email accounts created in Thunderbird, even other IMAP accounts, and this only happens with one account.
  • This same problem email account does not have issues online or through my phone.
  • I noticed that this problem email account is the only one that will not allow me to Compact Folders. That option is greyed out for some reason.
  • If I have unread messages in my Inbox, then the Inbox folder still indicates as much, even though the messages are not visible until I re-jog things.

I am currently out of ideas.

Good morning,

I'm reaching out to see if I can get some assistance with Firefox on of our network. I'm System Admin at Goodfellow AFB. I've tried searching this issues on the web and found similar issues but solutions that were recommend online have not worked for us. Yes I have uninstalled Firefox completely and installed it from scratch. I know it has something to do with autoconfig file but not sure what exactly I'm looking for. Thanks.
