Is there any way to configure TB to COMPLETELY ignore update notifications? Twice now I have accidentally clicked the latest update notification and had to spend ages getting back to a more presentable version. (68)

Thank you,

Help!

I had this problem yesterday when I started up this browser it said, "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem.". So I read through the article and it said to restart my mac, so I did just that and pow, my bookmarks and history returned! Little did I know that the next day, (today) I'd start up Firefox and the message was there again, but this time, it got even worse.

       First I tried to tackle the bookmark problem, "Quit Firefox" they said, "Restart your computer." they said, "Create a new database". None of those worked, so I scrambled the internet looking for answers, all of them resolved their problems, every one else was A-ok, excluding me, and just like that, my add-ons weren't working anymore! Ad-block Plus, Dark Reader, Privacy Badger, nothing. I tried to delete Adblock first and reinstall it, because that's what their page told me to do, and I keep getting this message trying to reinstall it saying, "Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt." 
       And little did I know that every other extension said the exact same thing. So i knew something was going on that was out of my control. And then finally, the "pièce de résistance" to my pain and suffering through out this whole hour or so, pages won't even load even though I'm connected to the internet, how perfect... Even trying to update the browser won't work, downloading a new one also goes through the same "pages not loading problem. 
        So in conclusion, hopefully, just hopefully, you guys can help me out. I'll probably have to resort to my old laptop, (which is slow and almost unusable with how buggy that thing is.) seeing how my mac has also been running into problems these last few days as well before this conundrum. 

Good Luck and Happy Thanksgiving!

Installed 83.0 update for my Firefox a few days ago and noticed that fonts in browser looks worse. It bacame jagged (sharp) as if Clear Type was disabled in my system but I checked it and it is turned on. Also I don't see this problem in other browsers, Edge or IE, only in Firefox. Could it be a bug with latest update or what is it?

Since the latest upgrade to Thunderbird, when I print emails, the screen background color prints around the lines of blacktext. "Print Background" is NOT checked in the Page Setup box; if I check it, entire sheet prints my screen background color. Until now, I would simply get the black text on the paper. Happens on all my computers and all the printers. I have been unable to find a solution in all the menus and options. Can anyone help?

Hello,

A colleague is inviting me to occasional conversations to be accessed using Microsoft Teams. The emails appear in my Thunderbird email. Entries are added if required to the calendar , but I'm unable to see a link to attend or 'click' on the button that says 'Join here'. My webmail account works fine (gmail) so this is something missing or not configured in Thunderbird.

The problems is not unique to the latest build as has been like this for some months.

Screen shot of my received email attached in Thunderbird shown.

I'd welcome some help as I guess this works for others.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Thunderbird version 84 beta 1 released November 18, 2020. , Windows 10 Pro x64

Fastly cdn+tracking site calls home unexpectedly

Recently a Website "Fastly" tries to connect to its own IP addresses. Even if nothing has been done to call it,

My research shows that Fastly now owns the IP addresses formerly used by the known spyware ad supploer Cambridge Entreprenurial 199.232.0.0 thru 199.232.255.255. I see these connection attempts because my FireWall specifically blocks the address used by Cambridge Entrepren... So the FW gives me a popup. (which I can bypass temporarily)

But I can't find a way to stop it or what is causing Fastly to do anything. It just seems to call home when it feels like. The only consistency is only partial at best. That is for Amazon.com. In that case sometimes connecting to Amazon.com works fine. But much or most of the times I do not get an even cl;ose properly formatted Amazon page. And if I do get an OK Amazon home page, odds are high the next tab-page I open will be messed up, or not have any formatting or no graphics at all.

Any ideas? And can we get rid of Fastly or do we just have to block sites that allow Fastly to operate?

I am trying to organise my address books, which are very messy after years of using TB and not doing anything about it. but I cannot remove a single contact from the books! I have a Mac, but I deleted the contact I wanted to remove from my Mac contacts, but no way can I delete it from TB. And there is one contact with a spelling mistake that keeps appearing when I start typing a name, But I can't find it in the address book! It's simply not there, but If I don't watch out, I do use it.

My yahoo mail ads are blocked and unless I unblock them, I will have to start paying a fee to get my mail. I have read information but I have no idea how to fix this problem since I didn't know I even had an ad blocker. The ads don't bother me, so how can I get back the ads and my mail?

Please continue here: [/questions/1314933]
I am running a WIN10 Pro 20H2 PC with Firefox 83.0. All software up-to-date. My Internet connect is cable with a U.S. IP location.

All O.K, until I open "https://www.newegg.com/" with my default Firefox browser, which always opens "https://www.newegg.com/global/uk-en/".

Opening the same "https://www.newegg.com/" URL from the same password manager entry explicitly using Chrome or Edge I get to the desired U.S. location.

Does not occur on my other PCs.

Firefox is changing the URL so that I am always going to the UK location?

Can't find where this is happening. Can anyone assist?

My instance of Thunderbird was recently updated to v78.5.0. With this update, I no longer am able to expand recipients of existing emails. For example, note the following:

  • * I receive an email.
  • * I wish to reply to the sender, and add additional recipients. Previously, I could highlight the recipient field, and additional recipient fields would open allowing me to enter additional recipients to add to the reply as .cc or .bcc.

This ability to expand a recipient list is now gone. This functionality needs to be restored, or a clear way to restore the previous version of Thunderbird provided. It is unsatisfactory to have prior functionality removed that your end user community has been using for years.

Please advise at your earliest convenience.
