Hi

I don't know what's happened to cause this, but for the last few days if I grab a torrent file online, I only get the option to save the file, no option to automatically open in my torrent client.

I have been to Firefox general settings, and Applications - "Choose how Firefox handles the files you download from the web or the applications you use while browsing" but .torrent is not listed. When I search "torrent" in the Applications search box, I get only "magnet" as a result, nothing for "torrent" files (see image).

Any advice on how to automatically open .torrent files from the web in my torrent client would be appreciated.

Hi,

In the parameters, I chose to let Firefox ask me every time what to do with PDF files. But, when the window pop up and I click "Open with ... Firefox", the browser download and open with Firefox the PDF instead of only showing it in Firefox. When I set the "Open with firefox" by default in the parameters, Firefox will this time directly open the PDF in the browser instead of downloading it.

Are you aware of this bug ? Is there a solution ?

Thank you very much !

Hello

I do not understand how firefox sync is supposed to work. I have a desktop and a laptop. The desktop is FF 85 on Linux Mint (I cannot get a later version due to some querk) The laptop is 99 on Windows 10 Both are signed in to sync but my bookmarks were scrambled so I signed out the laptop and cleared the profile, cleaned up the bookmarks in the desktop and to be safe I tried just syncing the tabs, not the bookmarks, by opening the fresh firefox on the laptop and signing in again. In the sidebar under my account icon I clicked "Synchronise now" and the open tabs from my desktop appeared in a list underneath, jumbled up. (I have 2 separate windows open on the desktop with different tabs in each, but this separation was not followed either, there didn’t seem to be any provision for syncing tabs in two separate windows)

But the row of tabs didn’t open, all I can do is open them one by one from the list on the right, this is a slow process as every time I click on a tab in the list the new page opens in the same single tab, not a new one, but the sidebar closes again.

Is this what’s supposed to happen? I was expecting the synced row of tabs to open automatically.

This feature would have been useful as my OS on the desktop, (Linux Mint) tends to crash and to have the on the laptop would be a good backup.

Incidentally the other way I try to back up the lost tabs is to select them all and bookmark them to a new folder which I call “backup” but it seems this doesn’t necessarily duplicate them, which I would prefer, so any of the open tabs that were previously bookmarked risk being removed from the original bookmarked folder, without my noticing, and I am therefore reluctant to delete the backup folder without checking that it doesn’t contain the only bookmark of a page.

When I came back to syncing the bookmarks, how do I avoid them getting scrambled again?

Hi,

TB 91.5.0 on Windows 10 (with profile folder excluded from virus scan)

The latest update to seems to have resurrected a problem with saving copies of sent emails. Sending works fine, but copying of the sent email to the sent folder causes the send dialog to hang. Disabling the "Place a copy in:" option in account settings eliminates the problem. Using the "Other" option to place it in a local folder works *that is not part of a unified folder* works OK.

I have tried repairing folders and deleting the sent files inside "smart folders" in the profile, with no luck.

Unfortunately, I downloaded “SaveFrom.net Helper” without reviewing it.

Since downloading it I have been receiving a alerts from “McAfee WebAdvisor” about “dangerous pages blocked”.

I was able to remove the “SaveFrom.net Helper” add on in Firefox, but am unable to remove the “Savefrom.net Helper” bookmark tab which has high jacked my normal Firefox Bookmarks.

I can no longer easily see my Firefox Bookmarks and have to keep opening the Firefox Application Menu, then select Bookmarks, then select Manage Bookmarks in order to see my bookmarks.

Can you please advise how I can safely remove the “SaveFrom.net Helper” bookmark tab which has high jacked my Firefox Bookmarks.

I have Thunderbird 91.08.0 on the D: drive - the Profile folder etc is on the C: - and I would like to install the programme also onto the C:. If I do this and then uninstall it on the D: is that in order, or should I uninstall the original programme (from the D:) and then install it on the C:, hoping that all files, folders etc will be 'picked up' correctly, the current PCV file is 3.58GB?

I need to log SMTP traffic when I send a piece of mail from Thunderbird. What I see in my pop3.log.moz_log file is SMTP traffic when Thunderbird downloads mail from the server. But I do not see the SMTP traffic when I send a piece of mail to the outbound server. When I look at previous logs, I see SEND records in a log from 2020-03-02. Did something change in the SMTP logging? I am running Thunderbird 91.8.0 64-bit in Windows 10 Professional 21H2 64-bit.

My school IT dept. has just disabled POP for all users, in their Outlook based system. I've only ever used POP, and I've organized all my mail locally in TB for decades, across dozens of email addresses. I avoid IMAP because I don't want my folder structure replicated in the cloud, and I don't want any of my data left on the server for more than 90 days. I also always use "place replies in the folder of the message being replied to", so I don't want anything messing with my Sent folder, or any other default folders. And I don't want any server side app with the ability to delete mail or make any changes to my local system. I hate webmail, and avoid using it completely, except for emergencies, so that's not a good option for me.

Now I have to set up IMAP for my school email, if I want to keep using TB for it, which I do. The existing account has been in TB on POP for 8 months already, and I don't want to split up my current activity from my history. I've never even set up IMAP before. How can I get IMAP set up to get as close as possible to the POP experience I prefer, in all the ways listed above? Has anyone come up with any clever strategies or workarounds? Are there any current features of IMAP that can minimize the impacts of all the downsides that made me decide to never adopt it from the beginning?

Thanks for any help with this.
