My installation of 32-bit Firefox 102 had been repeatedly crashing, sometimes for no apparent reason. I decided to download the 64-bit version of Firefox 102, uninstalled the 32-bit version, carried out a standard installed and all this appeared successful. I noticed that I was getting a lot of advertisements and remembered that I had had Ghostery installed as an extension in my 32-bit Firefox. I went to the extensions page, selected Ghostery and asked for it to be added. Shortly after that, I got a message that the installation had been aborted because the extension might be corrupt. I tried again and got the same message. I tried another ad blocker, and got the same message with that one; and tried a third with the same result. What is going on? I haven't changed any settings in Firefox since the standard installation, and the extensions were from the Firefox source, so how can the extensions be corrupt? If it isn't corrupt, why isn't Firefox installing it?

I upgraded to TB 102.0 today. After I checked my settings and updated my plugins, it seemed to be working fine. However, later in the day I noticed a message that TB was downloading about 880 messages in my main inbox. Of course, there are not nearly that many new messages. I searched and did not notice any new emails in the listing. However, I found that two recent messages had been corrupted in some way. I enclosed an image. When I open the message, there is not even the normal header with the different choices. There is just what appears to be a bunch of information that has been mushed together in place of this email. I found two emails like that. I right clicked on the two, and deleted the corrupted messages. Then I compacted files. For a moment, things seemed OK. Some other emails near those that would not display worked again. However, shortly after I did another compact folders, I got the same message -- downloading the same 880 emails. Now I have two new messages corrupted.

Please help! I have no idea how to stop this corruption. This account is hosted on Google Workspace. I have it set to sync only the last 90 days of messages.

A critically important bug!

Messages in local inbox (it is possible that the bug occurs in other or all local mailboxes too) get completely overwritten by Thunderbird 102 with parts of neighboring messages or by truncated content from the same message. The damage is irrecoverable and irreversible - original content is permanently lost. Message subject still appears in the list of messages, but in the message view pane there is no subject and no message, or just random HTML source parts of another message. Destroyed messages are OK after downloading and display correctly until overwritten under unclear circumstances. In one occasion, there was a monster message created by merging 2 messages into one - with a subject line and top part of the message header from the first message and bottom part of the header and broken content of the second message (3-rd attachment). "Folder properties"/<Repair folder> does not restore the lost content.

When the e-mails are downloaded, a filter is applied and the e-mail is placed in a folder. After exiting and restarting Thunderbird, the last emails are downloaded again and the filter is no longer used. So I have two identical emails. One in the folder and second in the Inbox. I have it set so that emails are not deleted on the server. This described problem only happens 1 time. If I delete the second identical downloaded e-mail, the next identical one will no longer be downloaded. Previous versions did not do this. I didn't change any settings.

Firefox created a second Downloads folder/library when it opens a PDF to view in the browser.

file:///C:/Users/Name/Documents/Downloads/NightSkyNotesJan2022OrionDetail.pdf

I seem to remember finding lots of temp pdfs and other files in a temp folder under user/appdata/local or roaming and having to delete this files manually from time to time. Putting the files in an easy to find folder is a good step but my Downloads Library/folder had previously been moved to D:\Downloads via choose new target from the library properties. D drive is an internal HD, C drive is an SSD. Why didn't Firefox just use the existing Downloads library instead of creating a new one on the C drive?

Ideally, if you are viewing a pdf in a Firefox tab it would delete the file if you did not download it so it does not clog up your drives. If I know i want to keep a pdf I would save to my chosen folder and view in Acrobat instead of reading in a browser tab.

I agree with a previous post i saw requesting an option for the user to specify a temp file folder on another drive when viewing pdfs to preserve some life on the SSD boot drive.

My Thunderbird installation now crashes upon start. Yesterday I updated my Thunderbird to the new version, via the "About Thunderbird" menu item. It gave me the Crash ID: bp-720aa7bf-f084-4991-9b1c-8d03e0220702

I tried starting Thunderbird in safe mode, first checking the "Disable all add-ons" (still crashes), second checking "Disable all add-ons" and "Reset toolbars and controls" (still crashes).

The Home/Thunderbird/Thunderbird Crashes directed me to come to the Support forum and ask for help there. Any suggestions will be welcome. Thank you.

There are two websites (at least) in which I've been receiving the same error message (see attached). Because these were sites I need for work, I first worked with IT Services and they first suggested clearing the cache. That did seem to work for about a week and a half. However, 2 days ago, it started happening again and now clearing the cache does not seem to work. I know it's a firefox issue because the pages load fine on Chrome.

When I login to URL

 https://www.ohiogasprices.com/index.aspx?mss=286965  

with Firefox there is a long delay (~5min.). This happens with multiple machines and locations (w/ Windows 10p and Windows 11p). This started a few weeks ago, I'm wondering if an update is to blame.

It all works fine with Microsoft Edge.

M1 Mac, Macos 12.4

After installing Firefox 102.0 neither of my computers will open Reddit pages. As far as I can tell, all other sites appear to work normally and Reddit functioned before the Firefox update. I restarted Firefox, restarted my computers, deleted Firefox and Reddit history and cache ... nothing so far has solved the problem. Reddit works as expected in Safari.

Any and all suggestions will be appreciated!

In making this post I am following instructions found at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-crashes-closing-or-quitting, which include the statement "Fill out the Details section of the next page..." which seems to refer to THIS page, but I see no Details section here, so I'll just put the details where they seem to apply.

Firefox Version 102, installed today, shows the same symptom I've been seeing for several weeks, perhaps months: whenever Firefox is closed, a crash report popup appears on the screen (after a minute or two). I've been submitting these on a regular basis and hoped that Version 102 would contain a fix, but the issue continues.

So today I've created some minimum-to-reproduce examples, in each case using the same setup, but closing Firefox in a different manner:

Setup: Firefox for Windows V 102 installed today. Windows 10 is up to date. I open Firefox in troubleshooting mode, which displays my home page, located on a shared server that I use for a website and other stuff I want to be able to access from anywhere. Nothing exotic, just a list of links. That works.

Then, without doing anything else (for purposes of these tests), I close Firefox via one of the following (with associated report ID):

  • Click on large X in the upper right corner of the window.
   bp-e31ef7d6-8d17-41c8-a204-0e53c0220630e
  • In the window menu, select File > Exit.
  bp-d15f97c8-267f-4550-9d42-69eb70220630
  • On the task bar, RMB on Firefox, then select 'Close window'.
 bp-39756c12-ccb7-4f83-998a-ec8030220630

My system is an HP laptop with AMD Vision A6 processor. My wife uses a Dell all-in-one on the same wired network and does not experience the crash-on-close symptom. This makes me suspect my hardware, but just tested with other browsers:

Chrome - Blocked my home page (never saw that before, but I use Firefox...) until I removed the block from Settings. Closed without crashing. Edge - Updated itself, then gave me the same "Not secure" warning as Chrome, but displayed the home page anyway. Closed without crashing.

In all cases, the link to my home page is specified as http://, not https:// My wife's system is set up the same way.

My question: How can I get Firefox to close gracefully, without spitting out a crash report 1-2 minutes later? Note that I can OPEN Firefox and use it for hours without incident, but if I close it and do something else, when I close THAT, there's the Firefox crash report window underneath.

I just ran the w3.org validator on my home page and I see that a few errors have crept in,. mostly unencoded ampersands. I'll fix those, but if that caused a problem for Firefox, would it wait until much later to crash? And why only on my system, not my wife's?

Suggestions?
