The recent update to Firefox for Android caused the microphone to disappear on the search bar. I checked the settings and I have Show Voice Search toggled on, and I have given permission for Firefox to use the microphone, so I don't know what's going on.

I just opened the app the other day and saw the "What's new" screen. Since then, there is no way to speak a phrase or keywords into the Firefox toolbar.

Has anyone else had that problem?

So, I was trying to head to Bing for reasons I will not disclose due to embarrassment. So I went to open it from google and was given the Error:

 ''''''''The page isn’t redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.''''''''

So I cleared cookies and site data, nothing still got the error. I tried checking my PC for malware as stupid as it sounds, I just didn't wanna be asked to do it. Spic and Span. I even checked my protection settings which FOR SOME REASON turned themselves back on. I turned those off and still, no dice.

Any help would be appreciated

Can I do the following? My reasons are given below.

  1. Make a copy of my email messages. My profile is in the folder np2coeun.default, so I think my messages are here: D:\... np2coeun.default\ Mail\ mail.mydomain.co.uk\ Local Folders\ this folder is 13.6 Gb – I have a lot of important stuff in there
  2. Save my copy of Local Folders somewhere else (and make a backup on an external drive)
  3. Uninstall Thunderbird
  4. Delete the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Thunderbird\
  5. Install the latest version of Thunderbird
  6. Import my stuff from my saved copy of Local Folders
  7. Set up my 29 email accounts from scratch and rebuild my profile settings, message filters, etc.
  • My reasons for wanting to do this are problems which have been building up for a while and are now intolerable:
  • Thunderbird takes up to half an hour to boot (start up)
  • Thunderbird sometimes doesn't download messages from my ISP. I don't think there is a problem at my ISP because my Android phone downloads without a hitch using the Samsung email app.
  • Thunderbird recently started downloading multiple copies of emails – the only way I have found to prevent it is to tell it not to leave messages on the server – but I like to keep them there for 30 days as a backup
  • Thunderbird has started corrupting folder and sub-folder names in My folders

I think the following are relevant:-

  • All my email accounts are POP3.
  • My mail server is provided by my ISP along with my domain names. I don't use Gmail or Hotmail or anything like that.
  • I update Thunderbird every time I am prompted, except the last prompt. Current version 78.7.0 (32-bit)
  • My OS is Windows 8.1

Thanks for reading this long post. Michael (I am on London time)

Some websites like to hijack your keyboard shortcuts. (For example in forums, ⌘-C, ⌘-V, ⌘-K, ⌘-L)

In Firefox, you can hold ⌘+Shift while clicking a link to open it in a new background tab. I recently encountered a website (Duckduckgo) which hijacks this as well.

Is there a way to block website from redirecting your keyboard shortcuts. It's really intrusive and I hate it.

Thanks.

Hi friends,

I am receiving an error that firefox is out of disk space.

"firefox is running out of space"

Despite following the instructions the error still appears. I also clicked the "Got it" button in hopes that this would make the error go away, but it keeps coming back. My system has over 20gb free and I really can't see why this error is occuring.

Does anyone have any advice? (besides switching browsers)

Thanks.

I've been using Bitwarden as well as Firefox's Lockwise. I've encountered a difficulty with Bitwarden that Bitwarden says is due to my use of Lockwise. I've also seen that Lockwise is more automatic that Bitwarden--it enters passwords uncalled. Yet Mozilla recommends Bitwarden. My question is: Is there any advantage I can get from using Bitwarden that I can't get from Lockwise alone?

Hello!

I’ve been having quite strange problem with Firefox for a few months since version 80.X on clean Windows 10 (reinstalled from scratch after secure erase; the latest 20H2 version with all updates installed). It’s worth to mention that I’ve been using Firefox like 15 years and never had an issue like this before.

Firefox just fills up system drive completely (50+GB to 0 bytes remaining) few times a day under active usage. It happens randomly and I can’t identify the reason. I also can’t find any actual files saved on disk because it seems to be related to NTFS cache. I’ve tried disabling the following settings with no success:

browser.cache.disk.enable cached-web-content_cached-web-content browser.cache.memory.enable browser.cache.disk.smart_size.enabled

And couldn’t find any solution unfortunately. I usually have 2 windows opened ("common" and private) with 10 to 30 tabs each which is not much at all for i7/16GB I believe. This problem is extremely annoying and seriously affects SSD life so I'd really appreciate if someone would help me to resolve it. Thanks in advance!

Hi everyone,

I'm on w7-64. I updated to FF86, and there were obvious problems with it, so I installed 84. Works fine, except that now I'm noticing twitter and facebook get slower over time. I didn't notice that before reinstallation of 84.

I just created a new profile and refreshed. Will monitor. But what is the usual issue when firefox is doing this? Basically its not releasing memory correct?

I tried useing Firemin (https://www.rizonesoft.com/downloads/firemin/), and there was a noticable difference with twitter and firefox. But I'd rather just fix the issue instead of using a bandaid if I can.

During the reinstallation of FF84, I did delete a few registry entries (I followed a page like this to do it (https://www.tenforums.com/browsers-email/164280-remove-firefox-completely-then-reinstall.html)). But I don't know how that could effect releasing memory.

I'll keep you updated, but does anyone have any insight?

Thanks!

Yesterday I was using Firefox normally (browsing, Discord, etc.). Today when I opened it, it wouldn't load any page. If I type something in the adress bar it will auto-complete or show suggestions based on google, but when I hit enter, nothing happens. It doesn't even try to load anything. I also can't go into options. When I click on the options button, nothing happens. I am not running in any compatibility modes. I have tried reinstalling Firefox, didn't help. I am not using any add-ons. I have done several virus searches. Other browsers work fine. I'm running out of ideas now, that's why I'm doing this post.

Hi:

Just installed Firefox on Windows 10. When the installation finishes, the browser window shows two tabs, both crashed. Trying to access any URL also results in a crashed tab.

If I quit Firefox at that point, then attempt to restart the program, I'll get the spinning circle for a few moments, then nothing -- it just won't run again. The installer file will run again, but I'll get the same results.

Thoughts?

Thanks,

Gregg

Hi Guys,

I have a problem when I'm waking up PC from sleep mode. Please help me if you have ideas or solutions.

In my case, Firefox doesn't accept any action (scroll, click). The only solution is terminate Firefox by cmd+Q shortcut, and after restart, it works properly.

I can see same problem with my Mac Mini M1 and Macbook Air M1, but it didn't happen on Intel Macbook Pro.

Here's my environment,

OS:Mac OS Big Sur 11.2.2 Firefox:86.0 Display:Dell Q3219U Connection:USB-C to USB-C or USB-C to Displayport

I guess it was the update to Firefox v. 86.0 here on Ubuntu that made Firefox create an extra empty window beside the session I always (re)open, which contains a large amount of tabs. When I try to close the empty window Firefox gives a warning, that this will close my (many) tabs. That doesn't make much sense to me. And when another app, like Thunderbird, opens an URL, it is opened in the new empty window. I can add that I use some add-ons like Simple Tab Groups, Vertical Tabs Reloaded, AdBlock Plus and NoScript.

I'm running Arch btw, with GNOME Shell 3.38.3 and Firefox 86.0 (64-bit).

If I have Firefox already open and I click on a link inside of another app, Firefox displays the following error message and the link fails to open.

Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile.

However, if I close Firefox and then click the link again, Firefox will correctly open the link.
