Can't find the option to disable auto updates in version 65. One of the reasons I haven't updated to the latest version. If it can't be disabled, I'll be done using your browser. I stopped using Microsoft Windows precisely because of that behavior. There is nothing more annoying than using your browser and it says, "I can't do anything without a restart." and being presented with a restart button except that when you click the restart button, the browser closes. It never restarts.

I want control over my own computer. I want control over whether this updates or not. I've been doing this longer than you and I'm an IT professional. This can be done a whole lot better.

I'm keeping all of my other machines at 64 pending an answer to this question. Very disappointed that I may have to find a different alternative browser not based on google code.

Trying to submit a trouble ticket on the slowness of Firefox since the last update. It's so bad I'm thinking of switching to another browser! I've re-set the browser, re-started the laptop and Firefox is STILL slow. There doesn't seem to be a way to contact support directly. This is terrible.

Using windows 10. Thunderbird and Firefox both operating fine. Allowed a Windows update and neither would open. Both gave a message to close since another instance was currently running. Clearing error message made no difference nor would restart of OS. Restoring system to point when they did open made no difference. Corrected problem with Firefox by changing profile. Thunderbird still showing error message. Windows auto update happened and then Thunderbird no longer showed any sign of opening although Firefox continued to work fine. Installing Thunderbird Beta update made no difference. Uninstalled Thunderbird and reinstalled with no progress. Cleaned registry and ran anti malware utility without any positive results. Have tried Thunderbird P and other suggestions. Nothing helps!

Okay, just installed Thunderbird so forgive me if this is a rookie Q:

I have five different email accounts which I want to set up in Thunderbird. Default location seems to be: C:\Users\[name]\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\\Profiles\u3a4epdd.default\ImapMail\[email]

Problem is, my C: drive is almost full and I'd like to store my emails on my larger D: drive. At least one of my emails will have approx 9GB data once imported (at least, that's what the ost currently is in Outlook - I assume the same in Thunderbird, but correct me if I'm wrong).

I understand that I need to go to Account settings > Server settings > Local directory to change email storage location. This worked great for the first email I set up. However when I try to set up subsequent emails in this folder, or sub-directories of that folder, I get the message "The directory specified in the Local Directory setting is already used by the "[email]" account. Please pick a different directory."

I guess I could have all 5 emails in five different folders directly under D: drive, but I'd like to keep things neat, preferably storing them in sub folders under something like D:\Thunderbird\ Is this possible, and if so, how can I do it?

Thanks for your help in advance.

I am using a video conferencing site called "whereby.com". It works as expected for everything but screen sharing.

When attempting to share my screen, Firefox asks me if I'd like to allow "whereby.com" to see my screen (see attached screenshot). When clicking "Allow", I see the message in the second attached screenshot.

Firefox version - 73.0.1 Mac OS version - 10.15.3

The same error message appears regardless which of the options I select in the window where Firefox asks which window or screen to share.

Whereby doesn't have any info on this, and no search I've run has turned up anything that might give more info on the cause of, or possible solution to, the error saying screensharing could not start. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Let me know if there's anything more I need to share to help troubleshoot this.

Thanks, Dan

Youtube videos stuttering after updating to firefox 72

After updating to firefox 72 (maybe it was after 72.0.1 - I did not have time to check so fast) videos on youtube started stuttering. When I start video everything seems fine but after a while it starts microstuttering - image is twitching, movement of camera is not fluent.

It looks like it is related to all videos on youtube. I watch mostly 1080p 60fps and these most often cause this issue. Example video: https://youtu.be/1La4QzGeaaQ It is easy to observe it at 1:27 with camera movement and terrain being fluent or not. If I pause video and resume play after few minutes it seems fine for minute but then it starts being choppy again. It does not seem to be related to video quality. I had 0 dropped frames in yt stats. I found workaround - if I set media.wmf.vp9.enabled to false and restart browser with this setting set to false everything is fine. But when I set it to true (like it always was for me) problem starts to occur. However no matter what I set youtube still shows "codecs: vp09". I do not have this problem on microsoft edge. I never had this problem on firefox 71 and I did not add any new extensions since few weeks. It must be new firefox fault, not my hardware or configuration.

The main use of the PC in my living room is as a media center. My GUI (Plex) runs in the browser and plays videos with VLC via a custom addon. Currently it is also used for browsing from time to time and I need to keep that part of it secure. As Mozilla is about to break all my addons as well as force me onto 64 bit, I've no choice but to stop updating Firefox on that PC.

I found a old post (3 years old) about running two different versions of Firefox at the same time. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/974208

Is it still possible to do this? Does the same methods still work?

I want to freeze my current 32 bit Firefox at v54.0.1 and use it only for local content. (I've already disabled updates on it)

Then I want to then install a second 64 bit Firefox v55, use it for internet, and allow it to update normally.

If this isn't possible I'll just have to switch to a different browser.

After the most recent update, 78.4.0, I cannot receive emails. I can send emails. Also the folder icons changed from yellow to white. Erols.com (RCN) is my email host. I can still receive emails on my phone and through mail2web.com. I have tried turning off firewalls, both Webroot and the native one in Windows 10. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling both latest version and an earlier version. I checked to make sure the proper password was still saved. When I hit the Get Messages button, there is a "Connected to pop.rcn.com..." in the bottom pane where the "unread" and "total" are listed. It just vanishes after a bit. Anybody got a cure?
