Hello Friends,

It has been one or two weeks since my main business mail accounts have stopped working in Thunderbird on my office Computer. They are all from one domain, the other private mail accounts - also new ones - function without problems. First I have tried ereasing them and to install them new but none of the four existing mail adresses are acepted. The message I get is: "Login failed. Either the entered access data is incorrect, or other, separate access data are required" If I try again, Thunderbird says: "Thunderbird couldn't find any settings for your email account" The data I am using is absolutely correct and is working on several other machines like Laptop, smartphone, accountants PC etc. I installed MAILBIRD on the office PC and the COOLFLATS mail adresses work perfectly with the same access data ! I have completely reinstalled the office computer 3 days ago and nothing changed. I also noticed one remarkable thing: If I try to install one of the COOLFLATS mail accounts on a computer, where the "old" coolflats accounts are still working, I get the same error message as on my office computer. Now this is really weird, has anyone an explanation or a solution to this weird problem or am I forced to leave Thunderbird and move to the alternatives ?

Kind regards: Hardy

hi i see that i have a tab that uploads and i know its PID (via the task manager) I want to close him, but i don't know which tab it is, is it possible? Is there a way to suggest an option that shows the CPU and up/down usage when the mouse stays over a tab? or is there a soft or plugin to do that? thx

I installed Firefox on a MacBook Pro 13" (Mid 2012) with MacOS 10.15.7 Catalina. Before closing Firefox for the first time, I carefully opened settings and ticked "Restore previous session", under "Start" on the "General" settings page. But when I opened Firefox again, there were no tabs, just a "Welcome screen" as if it was the first time ever I use Firefox! This is extremely disappointing! I am really shocked! I had never thought that Firefox would screw me like this! I have been using Firefox on Windows and Ubuntu for many many years! I can add that it is Firefox 85.0.2. And now it updated itself to 86.0.

When viewing gmail with my personal account, Firefox is crashing after it loads the conversations in the sidebar.

I have tried resetting, using a private window, and running in Safe Mode

Here is the crash report Id: bp-b36c8ee9-37cb-4dec-9380-2f6320210228

I can repeat this at will. I will try disabling the conversations bar using another browser and then update to see if that helps (it's not crashing when I view my work gmail).

Thanks for your help ;-)

My Firefox will not open no matter what I try because it continuously tells me, "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible."

This error started happening because my Firefox originally wasn't saving the add-ons that I was trying to add. If I closed my browser and opened another one it would be gone. I tried refreshing the browser but that didn't help. I eventually tried reinstalling to see if that would fix the issue and then this error popped up and now I cannot stop it.

I tried reinstalling. I tried deleting the profile out of appdata, etc in hopes it would make a fresh one. I tried making a new profile by running it without opening the browser only to be given an error that doesn't save it. I'm at a loss on how to get my Firefox working again. It is my favorite browser and this is the first time I've ever really had a severe problem with it. Help!

Hi everyone,

My Windows 10 Firefox updated to 86, and I noticed a change in how some jQuery Mobile controls are rendering.

If you go here and scroll down to the 'Checkboxes' section: https://demos.jquerymobile.com/1.4.5/forms/

You'll see that the control group is no longer rendering with a block display style. Previous versions, along with all versions of Chrome, Edge, etc, have them taking up the entire container width. I have attached a few screenshots for convenience.

I can work around this in my product, but this may be a canary in the coal mine of many other display differences. If you have any thoughts I'd love to hear them.

Thanks and have a great day!

When my Microsoft Surface is in tablet mode and I click in any text field in Firefox, the on-screen keyboard pops up, there's a little shutter on the screen, and the keyboard closes. If I open the keyboard again by clicking in the task bar, the same thing happens again. The on-screen keyboard works perfectly in all other apps.

Anyone come across this before? Any thoughts?

I'm using the latest version of Firefox and Windows.

Hello! Our company has had this issue since May of 2020. out of 170 users, we will have 3 or 4 users per day crashing at random times. we cannot recreate the crashing on demand, its random times, random pcs. we are running the latest ESR version we do have a handful of PCs on the non ESR version also crashing. nothing in their extensions. we have tried running in safe mode and renaming the storage folder for some of the repeat users PCs but the crashing persists after a few days. we had all users refresh firefox but it will also happen again after a few days. we have tried setting a different home page for some users but they still get it. the only fix is to reinstall firefox and it will work fine for a few days but then will happen again. when they are in the crash cycle, nothing will get FF to open, only reinstall. FF is the default browser since some of our vendors require it. any help would be appreciated!

here are some of the users crash reports. I cant tell what is causing the crashes. we do have mcafee AV and have tested removing Endpoint security modules but still got crashing.

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.

Hello,

As the subject states, in the last few days I have been experiencing this very annoying phenomenon. I can start youtube, pick any video from recommended or my subscriptions, but aftery using the search bar to look up anything else, the whole browser freezes for at least 30 seconds but usually more. This started on maybe Sunday. Any tips? I have hardware acceleration disabled, but tried it both ways. I have cleared cache/history/cookies. Haven't tried a refresh yet and wouldn't want to if there's any other solution. Any tips to fix this?

I am using centos 8.2 with it's firefox 78.7.0esr (64-bit) I also have my home directory mounted via NFS using the automounter system.

In general firefox works fine in this configuration. However, when I get on Ebay and try creating a listing, firefox will hang when adding photos and/or moving the photo order. My NFS server will then start complaining about 'failed to contact remote rpcbind.

I try to close firefox and it doesn't It then will ask about a script running to long and offer to close. It won't I wait quite some time and it doesn't close About now the whole system is locked up and I may be able to get to the reboot menu I reboot and it won't because the process is hung. I usually have to power cycle to get things back.

I think if I waited for the automounter to time-out firefox may close at that time.

So the questions are: Is this supposed to work in an NFS environment? What is going on to cause the hang? Are there environment variables to move "some directory" to the local disk drive if that is the problem?

I sure hope someone can answer this for me. Thanks Warren

Hello. After updating Firefox on my Macbook, a website I visit now will not load, the message "transferring data" will appear and the status indicator looks like the data is loading, then when the status bar looks like its at 100%, it will start over and show "transferring data" again, and this keeps repeating indefinitely. This only happens when using an IPv6 address, it works fine with IPv4. This did not occur in Firefox 81.0.2. This also does not occur on other websites or with other browsers. I am looking at the notes for releases between 81.0.2 and 85.0.1 but am not sure what may have changed that would cause this. The website in question is a BMC GUI for a server I'm working on. If anyone has any ideas I'd really appreciate it. I tried the debugger in Firefox but not sure what I am looking for. I did set a breakpoint for caught exceptions, and the screenshot is attached if it helps any... Thanks!

I don't remember exactly the date, but I think it started after a update(firefox/windows). The oldest pic I have is from 23/11/20. Firefox was running without no problems, then this started.

Gallery

The problem is High cpu usage from time to time. Making firefox slower and also freezing tabs. It's so annoying. Made me use Edge that runs incredibly smooth, I was impressed( I can even watch media in 1080p with no problem).

Then I noticed through the task manager that the 'Host service Windows font cache service' is always present, as you can see in the gallery. I didn't find anything related to that.

Tried starting in safe mode, refresh, uninstalled and installed today(24/02) and nothing worked. This is driving me crazy because I love using the browser.

My PC Setup is: Windows 10 Home i3-4130 8GB ram no video card

And I use the free avira antivirus.

Two updates ago my system now uses 100% of my CPU and memory on occasion. Norton tells me that a website is slowing down my system. When I go to task manager Firefox is open 5 times and is driving my system to the limit so I have to end the task. I also have clicked to read an article and my system halts, all I see is the reload and an X flashing in the left hand top and I have to end the task and it also has my computer maxed out and Firefox is open 5 times as well with CPU and memory at 100%. I also don't have any other app open.
