Hi! I've switched to Firefox quite recently and I love pretty much everything about the browser. The only problem I've been experiencing is that whenever I try to print a page the whole browser crashes. I've tried removing all the settings for printing in prefs.js but that didn't seem to help in any way and the crashes don't turn up in the about:crashes tab. Has anyone else been experiencing this and perhaps knows how to fix it?

This is very frustrating and I hope you can help me. Every time Firefox updates the tabs move up to the top of the browser, when I need them below the bookmarks bar, where they used to be. I did get instructions on how to do it for v. 72 (I think), but now I've updated to v. 78 and the tabs are again at the top. The instructions for changing the css: file go up to v. 74 only. Also, in the css: file I'm not sure how much of what's already there should be replace. The entire file? Or? This is probably frustrating for a whole raft of people, but for older ones like me (I'm 76) it's particularly maddening. I would appreciate any help I can get. Also, where would I submit my suggestion to Mozilla to just add a blasted toggle for moving the tabs back and forth. It would make a whole lot of people happy. BTW, I'm attaching a screenshot of the first page of what appears to be at least 8 pages of css: code. Should I delete all of it or...? Thanks for any help the community can give.

Starting with 68.4.2 I've been seeing this weird behavior for received messages. For some messages the content is not displayed when I try to read the message - the reading pane body portion is blank. If I "Reply To Sender" then the message content appears so obviously it's not a case of Thunderbird not being able to interpret the message. Also if I save the message as an eml it saves correctly. So why can't Thunderbird display it on reading, but it display ok on "Reply To Sender"? My font settings are attached.

How to add contacts to new profile from .mab (Thunderbird 68)

My old computer has died and I've got a new one, installed Ubuntu and Thunderbird. I need to get the contacts into the new Thunderbird profile but don't have access to an exported file, only the two .mab files. I know has been asked before, and I've tried following some of the advice but It's not working for me:

  • I tried pasting in the history.mab and abook.mab and restarting Thunderbird but none of the contacts appeared.
  • Advice to use MoreFunctionsForAddressBook add-on appears to be outdated.

Is there a way to configure multiple addressbook files and thus add (say) history-1.mab and abook1.mab (the files from my backup) to the new default ones?

This has happened several times over the last few weeks. I'll be using Firefox with 8-12 tabs open, or even far less, and then suddenly I cannot select any of the tabs. I click on them, and nothing happens. Video and audio will keep playing, but I cannot select anything.

So at this point I quit it, it closes fine, and when I launch it again it prompts me to either start in safe mode or to refresh. I have to restart the PC to get it to launch Firefox normally again.

The only extension I use is uBlock origin.

Hello, Here is the problem I encounter in firefox (windows 7 system): - the extensions are no longer functional - reinstalling them solves the problem only until the next start - fixing firefox did not solve the problem. When I thought about it I wondered if the problem did not follow the use of 'sync' in a non-administrator profile under ubuntu. I disconnected this machine (ubuntu) via the sync interface on my PC but the problem persists. What should I do, knowing that I currently no longer have access to this ubuntu computer (if the problem really comes from there)?

Bonjour, Voici le problème que je rencontre dans firefox (système windows 7) : - les extensions ne sont plus fonctionnels - leur réinstallation ne règle le problème que jusqu'au démarrage suivant - réparer firefox n'a pas résolu le problème. En y réfléchissant je me suis demandé si le problème ne fait pas suite à l'usage de 'sync' dans un profil non-administrateur sous ubuntu. J'ai déconnecté cette machine (ubuntu) via l'interface sync sur mon PC mais le problème perdure. Que faire, sachant que je n'ai actuellement plus accès à cet ordi ubuntu (si tant est que le problème vienne réellement de là) ?

Hi,

Why a few kilobytes of Cookies and Site Data are always left uncleared?

I clear them manually and I close the browser, but I still find them next time I launch Firefox ...


My settings are towards complete deletion of cookies and site data when Firefox is closed:

1. I have set Custom protection with blocking of All third-party cookies 'In all windows'. Please see 'Additional Screenshot.png'.

2. I manually Clear Data before closing the browser.

3. I still find a few kilobytes of data the next time I launch a fresh Firefox. Please see 'Main Screenshot.png'.


Thank you!

In some sites, there are "links" which do not show their link in the footbar and are usually images. This link open correctly with (for example) Chrome but not in Firefox. I'm just imagining that this might be a security issue but I'm not 100% sure. If so, how can I open this to allow this site? Could you give me a hand? Thanks.

You can try it yourselves: https://www.unionlido.com/en https://www.unionlido.com/en

I used to use Theme & Font Size Changer and was able to change the fonts to large and bold so I could read them. Now it doesn't work because of Firefox "upgrades". There really should be an easier way to change fonts, both sizes and colors, because not everyone is 20 years old with great eyesight. Is there a fairly easy way to do this? I'll even take a not-so-easy way if it works.

BTW, I've used "Firefox Colors" and it does make it a bit easier, but I really need to be able to increase the size of the text AND bold it.
