Not every time I can reproduce this bug, but when it happens after resuming from suspend, the firefox is crashed with the small window to report a bug to mozilla or if the window is still open, some tabs crashes at loading the page.

Whe I try to open from shell and crash happens: ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 9750 ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal...

I read with great interest Creates multiple copies of drafts at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1280432, and tried both suggestions with absolutely no success.

In addition, my instance of T-bird (ver. 78.0) now has begun *SENDING* the automatic draft saves instead of saving them! One of my recipients received *SEVEN*, slightly different copies of the same e-mail message, complete with typos and attached photos!

Furthermore, I thought it was a bug in the new T-bird version. So, I backed up all my files including my profile, then uninstalled T-bird, rebooted the laptop, then installed an older version of (ver. 68.11.0, as I remember). There was some improvement: The older T-bird didn't send the saved drafts, but it still saved multiple, serial copies.

But wait! There's more! I am running both Win 8.1 and Kubuntu 20.04 LTS on my laptop as dual boots. So, when that last experiment failed so badly, I rebooted to Kubuntu, and ran the Linux version of T-bird (ver. 78.0 as well, I think. But I don't want to reboot right now to double-check.) Same story: Multiple, serial drafts!

But then last night, the Kubuntu version of T-bird began SENDING multiple, serial drafts to the recipient!

And both of the two Windows versions and the Kubuntu version committed the same error whether I used the "Save" button or the keyboard shortcut ( <Ctrl>-S).

So, I am at a complete loss. I have no idea of what to do next. Or where to even continue looking.

Wait! The thought just hit me that I'm using more or less the same profile contents in all three instances. If the problem lies there, what part of my profile would mangle the function of the "Save" command? What do I need to do to fix it? (Without losing all my other profile customizations.)

Thanks in advance.

I am having problems while trying to watch YouTube with the Firefox browser. I keep getting as yellow bar at the top of the page when trying to do anything on YouTube. A screenshot of the error is attached. I've asked Mozilla about this before, and I am also trying to get a fix from Dashlane. It concerns the message "a script in the extension Dashlane is causing Firefox to slow down" then it shows Learn more. When I open that if the warning stays long enough to click on it. It recommends changing dom.max_script_run_time. It shows it is set at 10, and will not allow any change as suggested. Then it suggests adding JavaScript toggle on and off. That does not help either. I would thank anybody between Mozilla and Dashlane that can provide a reason for this continued error message and how to fix it. This has been going on for months.

I'm using DWService.net (a Teamviewer-like System) to access my computers and server.

The screensharing function is fully webbased and also works from mobile browsers.

Today, my Firefox for Android got updated to version 79.0.2 (Build #2015755339), and since then I noticed a weird behavior:

When I connect to a computer with Dwservice and do a click, the cursor re-centers to the screen of the mobile phone.

On the 1st picture, I clicked the minimize button and right afterwards the cursors jumps to the position shown in the 2nd one.

When I use Firefox 78 all requests are allowed. When I use FF 79, some (few) requests are blocked. Those requests break the page from loading properly. There are no messages in the console that suggest anything is being blocked. And the network tab just shows "blocked" on the request with no indication why it was blocked. I have not requested those URLs be blocked and the context menu has no "Unblock" option. Other requests that were slightly before and very similar looking were not blocked, some that come after and look similar are not blocked.

I have disabled all blocking features in Security & Privacy. Still blocked. (I don't think it was S&P blocking, there are no warnings etc.)

Otherwise, this an "out of the box" install with no changes made. Myself and a colleague are having the same problem with the same URLs being blocked. Other browsers, and earlier versions of FF are fine. Only FF 79 is experiencing the problem. I read the release notes, nothing stood out to me as a reason to block anything without an explanation.

(You won't be able to browse to our Jira, we 403 any requests from the internet. And these resources causing the problem are only needed after you login.)

Any suggestions on how to work out why those specific requests are blocked??

When I opened my computer this morning after it was asleep, ALL my Thunderbird accounts were gone! I have GMail set up to go through T'bird, and all my emails are still at GMail...but everything is gone on Thunderbird. Running Windows 10 on a PC, and have had T'bird for years. AND I just discovered that my address books are also missing...there are just a handful of contacts listed in "Personal Address Book," and many missing from "Collected Addresses" & "All Address Books"!

I have created filters in Gmail which filter emails into "labels" where I select the option "Archive it" where the emails won't show up in the inbox, and in Gmail they will show up in the related labels (folders). Well, Gmail constantly fetching new emails and I can see if there are new emails in different folders. However, thunderbird is not fetching those emails which are filtered into different folders, unless I click on the folder, then it fetches and unread emails show up. Even if I restart the thunderbird it won't fetch new emails under those folders. I have no problems regarding inboxes tho, they fetch emails perfectly. When I select the obtion "unread folders" nothing shows up. Unless I digg through folders then find some unread emails, after that if I select the "unread folders" those that I fetched manually would show up.

I am using 79.0 (64-bit) now, but since many versions back, Chinese input stops working in Firefox and I have never got around to deal with it. On Windows 10, I have other languages keyboard such as Russian/Japanese/Chinese/French etc. Depending on the need, I switch to other keyboard to enter the language in various places such as search box, form on a page etc. However, since many versions back (I can not remember when), Chinese language (pinyin) input stops working. If I don't get any tips on resolve this, I will enter a bug. Yes, I already tried the safe mode.

Extended desktop, two different PCs, vertical layout.

Upon opening Firefox a white bar appears across the bottom of the top screen and the only way to get rid of it is to hit F11 (Fullscreen) twice. Minimizing, maximizing, restoring all have no effect - only taking it from a normal window to Fullscreen view (no menu bar or tabs), then back to a normal window works.

It happens on every new window opened and it doesn't matter which display it is opened on, the bar will be there if moved to the bottom screen, until F11 is pushed for that instance of Firefox twice.

This has happened before and it would seem to go away on later updates, but it is currently visible on every computer I have that has one display above another.

Ever since my Firefox updated on my windows 10 I have been having a lot of problems. Very slow loading times, any video I watch (whether it is youtube, twitch, hulu, etc.) buffers constantly, and if i have even only 2 tabs open i get the message in the yellow bar saying a webpage is slowing down your browser. I have tried a few different things; virus scan, checking installed programs to make sure nothing thats not suppose to be there is there, running firefox with add-ons disabled to see if that helps (didnt change anything), and restarting firefox. So asking for help on this, any solutions or insights are very appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I have my Mail stored on a NAS (in X:\My Documents\Mail) and it has been working fine for years. But recently the NAS failed and I have to go back to my 2 week old backups.

I have an internal HDD (drive D:) that is not being used for much else so I copied my Mail from the backup version of X:\My Documents\Mail into the internal drive D:\My Documents\Mail. Then, using "Control Panel\Administrative Tools\Computer Management\Storage\Disk Management" I changed the drive letter of the internal drive from D: to X:.

Now my mail files are stored in X:\My Documents\Mail - just like the good old days.

But when Thunderbird starts up it is an almost totally blank screen. The Toolbars are there but nothing else, and even then, the Toolbars are not working. There is just nothing there. No mail, no folders, no account details, no Address Book, nothing. Not even an error message.

I notice in Task Manager there is a little Thunderbird activity at first, but that soon dwindles to zero and still I have that near-blank screen.

There are some other applications that expect to find their files in X:\My Documents and they are working just fine on the newly restored internal drive X:. So that redefinition of drive letters seems to be OK.

What have I done wrong? How can I retrieve all my mail, folders, address book, etc?
