Recently, when I try to open an PDF, it opens in a new Firefox window, although I have Adobe Acrobat DC installed and working. I have tried changing the Firefox settings but this still happens. How do I stop Firefox being the default for opening PDFs, please? I suspect Firefox seems to think PDFs are HTML documents.

Firefox Beta and earlier have a minus sign on upper right to minimize to taskbar. That is missing in Nightly. Firefox Beta and earlier have a square box on upper right to go from maximized screen to normal screen.Now, double clicking on the top bar does the latter, but that box is missing in NIghtly.

As a result, Nightly has become unusable. I early await the fix.

No New Messages Despite Messages on SMTP server I host on my LAN

I noticed I wasn't getting emails today. So I checked mail, no new messages. I use a combination of a forward MX that will store and forward mail to my SMTP server behind a VPN for when my SMTP server is unavailable.

I control both client and server. This is the first time where the VPN itself is working fine and my mail forwarder is delivering just fine to my SMTP server.

The problem is... Thunderbird says 'no new messages on server' which proves that authentication works just fine. I can look on the server, tail my mail file and see new messages that are not in Thunderbird. And yet, despite sending myself new mail, thunderbird just dumbly comes back with 'no new messages on server.'

I do have leave messages on server ticked, fwiw; however, I've only had issues when the upstream mail isn't being delivered to my SMTP server.

I've tried an older solution, moving the mail index file; however, that didn't do the trick (did rebuild the index, but didn't trigger download of new messages). Nothing has changed. I even fired up my Desktop and tried downloading mail there despite needing to merge inboxes and it did the same thing... no new messages. I ended up upgrading Thunderbird from 78 (which was working fine the last few days, btw) to whatever version it is now (91? 92?).

I do not have a webmail ui to try to find a malformed message (and I'm sure that message is long passed as, unfortunately, I have a 2gb+ mail file at this point in /var, long story). I may be able to pinpoint it based on the actual dates when the last email was received in my inbox (and combing thru the 2gb+ server's mail file).

It's vital that my mail client can actually download email. I have no idea why it's not working; also tried tls.min 1 and tls.min 0 as well as enable legacy flags in options to no avail just in case.

HELP! I've used Thunderbird for a long time (since 2006, maybe earlier) but this is the first time I have ever had a client-related problem downloading over pop3. I use courier as my pop server and purposefully do not advertise or listen (or port forward) on the internet. So it's just local LAN traffic or via ssh tunnel/port forwarding.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

It seems like perhaps Tbird is confused as to what it last downloaded and is now not triggering new mail pulls. IT could, naturally, be something on the mail server regarding the inbox there. I don't really use any other accounts, but I suppose I could try setting a test up.

I can send mail just fine via the same SMTP server that receives mail for the client, so it appears mostly isolated to pop/thunderbird.

Hoping someone here knows what to do to get it to try to pull mail again.

I just upgraded to the newest version of Firefox for Android however the downloader does not work for certain sites such as Brighton.com. not one video downloader that Mozilla offers works for Android not one I've tried all of them. So I downloaded an exe file so I can download some videos to watch offline and lo and behold Firefox won't let me open it this is ridiculous and I realize you guys are volunteers if you know anybody and supervisory positions and Mozilla let's start a position to fire every one of them and get somebody in there that's confident that can run a website where you can do things that you normally used to do this is ridiculous they offer add-ons that don't work and then they block you from putting the exe files on your phone so you can download a video. I give up to hell with Firefox Google all of them I'm going to Linux this is ridiculous ever since Firefox merged with Google they have become just as big a tyrant as Google y'all have a wonderful day and thanks for letting me vent you know time is a precious commodity you can never get it back only God can give time and I've wasted over an hour tonight trying to download one damn video and Firefox blocks me every way they can I'm done good riddance Mozilla

I have 2 accounts on Thunderbird that lost their servers. There was a hosting service that don't exist anymore, so I only have locally stored emails in Inbox for those 2 accounts. Because of this I keep getting error messages like "Unable to connect to server ....". I would like to keep all the emails I have from this accounts but to delete the accounts so that Thunderbird can stop trying to connect to unexciting server and I have Cleaner Inbox list.

I tried selecting all emails from Inbox in one of accounts and archive it but the Archive button don't do anything.

Any idea how to solve this?

I use Google Calendar on my PC, my Android phone, and even my Kindle Fire. Problem appears only on my pc when using Google Calendar in Firefox (when I use Chrome, everything is fine). In two months (so far, Oct 2021 and January 2022) NO EVENTS SHOW UP. If I enter an event in either of these months, it will show in Chrome, my android, and Kindle. BUT those 2 months are completely blank when using calendar in Firefox. Clearing cache, disabling Adblock for the calendar page(s), reloading has not helped. I would really appreciate any possible solutions/help. Thank you

Hi! so I installed Kubuntu 20.10 after using it 'directly from the cd' for some time. since, all data would be lost every time i restart, i would keep a copy of a '.mozilla' file i would find in the system. Everytime i start the OS, i would first create a folder and copy paste it, so firefox would start right where i left it off. this worked, until i decided to make Kubuntu permanent. at first things were going good, but after sometime, my OS would stop recognizing my headphones and audio port completely. at first i blamed it on my OS and went about doing somethings here and there to adjust by. but looking back, i had installed some DRM to play some video on the net. so in a desperate fix, i replaced the current .mozilla file with a backup i had. the thing worked like a charm and my audio was fixed and everything was going ok, except for the occasional fixes so that my OS would channel the audio to the right output. that is, until the problem rise again! this time, i hadn't installed anything like i did previously, so i replaced the .mozilla file again and it worked! but i can't keep doing this and i had also faced the same problem in my windows, resulting my change in OS in the first place (I think its the same issue, because whatever i did didn't fix it and windows is more sophisticated that i wouldn't know). I don't know if this much info is too much or too less or that if i should post this here or in any other forums, but i would really appreciate it if i got a solution! Thankyou!

Witam Dziękuję za fajnie działającą przeglądarkę Firefox 92.1.1. Chciałem za sugerować żeby wprowadzić możliwość ustawienia jakości video na stałe Jest to możliwe ala przycisk ustawień jest dostępny w ustawieniu wersji okna przeglądania "na komputer" W ustawieniu mobilnym brak przycisku ustawienia jakości odywarzania. Poza tym kłopotliwe jest za każdym nowym włączeniem w wersji okna komputerowego powtarzać potrzebne ustawieni. Mam taką potrzebę bo chcę odtwarzać tylko dźwięk z video w najniższejże jakości 144 kb/s, ze względu że podczas jazdy często słabnie jakość sygnału komórkowego i przerywa odtwarzanie, a potem trzeba na nowo uruchomić video. Jest znacznie częstsze gdy będą w na początku w dobrym zasięgu ustawi się automatycznie wyższą jakość odtwarzania. Tel.

Cześć Zbigniew

Dziękujemy za wsparcie w tym, co robimy z Firefoksem dla Androida.

Podoba mi się pomysł, o którym mówisz, i byłoby wspaniale umieścić go w Firefoksie dla Androida. To powiedziawszy, myślę, że kontrola, na którą patrzysz, jest częścią stron internetowych z treściami wideo, a nie przeglądarką (Firefox) i jako taka jest poza naszą kontrolą.

Mam nadzieję, że to pomoże.

Hi Zbigniew

Thank you for your support with what we are doing with Firefox for Android.

I like the idea of what you are saying and it would be great to include it in Firefox for Android. That said, I think that the control you are looking at is part of the web pages with video content rather than the browser (Firefox) and as such is out of our control.

I hope that this helps. Avoid support scams. We will never ask you to call or text a phone number or share personal information. Learn more here.

I have Thunderbird set to automatically bcc my address and often send articles and other things I find on the web to myself. Previously, I just changed Bcc to To because the fields were not fised. Now, I have to drag the fixed bcc field up to the fixed To field. This is not a huge problem when I'm using a keyboard, although it is annoying nevertheless. The bigger problem is when I access my computer using TeamViewer from my phone and cannot drag and drop. I have to type my address into the To field, then delete the Bcc field. This is a major annoyance. Any chance that it could be changed back?
