I have been experiencing a problem with Cloudflare specifically on one site (character.ai) and when the verify you are human pops up. It takes me in a seemingly infinite loop. On the Cloudflare community site they say it could be because of things like adblock but even without any adblock or anything of the sort on it does the same thing. Sadly Cloudflare community doesn't support being used on Firefox. So maybe they don't support being used on Firefox in general? I have contacted the actual websites support but they don't seem to even read submitted inquiries because I never hear anything back from them except the automated message they received it. It is now preventing me from using certain things in general which as before it wasn't that big of a deal but recently they changed the site layout and still allowed you to use the old layout but the verification blocks you from using the old layout. The first one is one from a couple of weeks ago when it only effected me trying to open things in a separate tab and the second one is the newer one which prevents me from accessing the old layout. I'm not sure what to do about it since nothing I specifically could do to solve it has helped. I have opted into sharing data under troubleshooting IDK how well that'll help.

Suddenly almost everytime I load a YouTube video I have to watch 2 - 4 min of ads, sometimes two in a row before the video starts. I no longer have the skip ad button. If I load the same link in Chrome or Edge I don't have this problem. My search engine is Duck Duck Go, but if I go to Google first and then to the video I still have the problem. I also have the Maleware Bytes ad blocker installed. Any suggestions?

I've provided all of the other data, no problem. But the <Your login> field has only "YOURDOMAIN\yourusername" in it as a format hint. The field carries an Info symbol, but it's greyed out.

There are many possible domains, e.g. microsoft.com, office365.com, outlook.com, each with possible 3LDs, and the domain-name of the organisation that provides my account.

The most obvious (MYORGDOMAIN\Roger.Clarke) gets the error-message: > Authentication failed. Please check the username and password. (I checked, and they're the same as I use for a webmail login there).

Leaving it empty gets this error-message: > Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password. (That about covers the possibilities then ...).

I was forced to change the passwords on two of my accounts, one on yahoo.com and other on gmail.com after which they stopped working in Thunderbird after entering the new passwords. I completely deleted the accounts thinking I could add them again and they'd work.

They both act the same, so I'll just mention Yahoo. I successfully log in on the OAuth2 popup but Thunderbird returns the errors on yellow. I know the logging in is successful because I get a confirmation on my backup email "Your Yahoo account bogdan253 was used to sign in to a new third party application on thunderbird."

Gmail acts the same. Thunderbird is unusable at this moment, I will have to find another app if I can't fix this.

For the past week, when I sign into Facebook, the news feed is constantly refreshing itself. Once in a while the first post will stay, but the remainder of the news feed keeps refreshing. It is impossible to read anything as posts flash on and off, mostly off. The news feed is the only thing that is affected, visiting pages for likes and groups load and display properly, as do the games I play. The same occurs if in the private window mode. This does not happen if in the Chrome browser. What can be done to correct this situation?

Recent issue, April 2024. Had version 124 Firefox on Win10 computer and went to Help - > About to have Firefox check for updates. This has worked just fine up until now. The message "Failed to check for updates." is shown in the About screen. I have uninstalled and re-installed Firefox with the same results. Have also un-installed Firefox, un-installed Mozilla Maintenance, then removed Firefox data from App Data folder in user directory, then re-installed with the same results. Also, now when I access a local media server, I keep getting the message "Firefox is installing components needed" and that never goes away. Any ideas?

Recaptcha Not Working in Firefox Specifically.

Recaptcha isn't working in Firefox. It works in Chrome, Opera, and Edge with no issues, it will either just go to a check mark or open the window with the pictures to choose, on both regular pages and on the Google Recaptcha Demo site Google Recaptcha Demo site. But when I load a page that requires Recaptcha in Firefox, it just spins forever. It was working fine a few hours ago, and I didn't change any settings or anything in Firefox. I was filling out a job application and it worked fine, then I went to another job application and Recaptcha won't work at all, even on the Recaptcha Demo site.

I'm on version 125.0.3 (64-bit), on Windows 10. Not using a VPN or anything like that, just a standard Ethernet connection, with whatever Charter gives me.

Steps I've tried, none of which have helped:

1. Cleared Cookies. 2. Restart Browser. 3. Restart Computer. 4. Restart Modem and Router. 5. Opening Firefox in troubleshooting mode. 6. Ensured Firefox was up to date. 7. Reinstalling Firefox. 8. Turned Connection Settings to no proxy. 9. Turned off Enhanced Tracking Protection. (It's set on standard otherwise, and I didn't change it) 10. Release/Renew IP via Command Prompt.

I'm genuinely at a loss of what to do, after a couple of hours of searching around for solutions. I don't get how it just stopped working in the span of like ten minutes when I didn't change any settings or anything. Firefox is my main browser and it would be a tremendous pain to have to use another browser for any pages that require Recaptcha.

Any assistance or advice to solve this problem would be greatly appreciated!

Thunderbird: Copies of messages not being saved in SENT folder

Hi all,

Two days ago, copies of messages I send stopped being automatically saved to my TBird SENT folder. This is the case whether I send the messages to myself or other addressees.

I use Windows 10, TBird 115.6.1, and Gmail (with POP3 for the affected account).

BTW, this is not happening with an IMAP account I also use with TBird. Copies of messages I sent continue to be automatically saved to that account's Sent folder (as usual).

After researching this problem for several hours today, I've found that it's not an uncommon issue. The general advice is to navigate to Tools > Account Settings > Copies & Folders, check the Place a copy in, select Other, then point to the Sent folder of the affected account. (Alternatively, a copy can be requested to be placed in the Sent folder under Local Folders, which is actually what I've had set for many years of using TBird).

I tried sending multiple test emails to no avail. Nothing solved the problem of no copies in SENT. Despite that, every time I sent a new email, my Sent folder message count showed the addition of one more message, but no message appeared. Right now my Sent folder says there are 14 messages there, but none actually appear. The folder is empty.

I then tried several other alternative suggestions from Mozilla and other websites. Nothing works. Copies of emails I send are being saved to my Sent folder on Gmail webmail. Just not in Thunderbird.

I also tried the REPAIR option for my Sent folder. No effect. Shut down the program, re-started it, etc.

I verified that I had set TBird as an exclusion in Windows Security.

As a last resort (since this is a very troublesome problem!) I created a new "Copies" folder under my Local Folders and set the "Place a copy in" that new folder instead of into Sent. That did actually work. Copies of emails I sent after that did show up in that new "Copies" folder.

I would appreciate any assistance you can give, as I suspect my TBird Sent folder has somehow become suddenly corrupted. If so, can you suggest how to proceed. Thanks very much!

So on most sites there has been an issue for me for quite some time.

I hover over a link, the tooltip appears on the bottom left of the window showing the URL of the link. I click on link and page reloads but the tooltip is still on bottom left of the new window. The tooltip will disappear if I hover over any other link on the newly loaded page.

I expect the tooltip to go away when clicking the link and going to that page/site.

Firefox on win10 & 11 This problem does not occur in Edge.

This happens on multiple systems that I have that are based on Debian/Ubuntu. So basically, copy functionality is broken for Firefox Linux users...
