Google are changing to mandatory 2 stage authentication soon on 14th December. I set it up as they suggested that it should not be left. Thunderbird then just asked me to enter my password..... which I did, but there is no possibility of dealing with the Google code. I have unset this and it works - apart from the fact I cannot send emails anymore! error message implies a temporary server issue - we will see.

An address is a URL. A search is keywords. They are not interchangeable. How do I get Firefox to stop mixing them up?

When I want a URL, I type it in the address bar. Search has no relevance to a URL, and any intervention of Search gets in the way, and creates errors.

When I click in the search bar, it's because I want a keyword search with one of the search engines. A search is not a URL.

They are two completely different things, and treating either one as the other is error. I do not want Firefox to kidnap my cursor and teleport it to somewhere I didn't click. They are two entirely different spaces, they are not interchangeable. When I click in the search bar, it's because I want a search. Don't you dare second guess me and change my click to the address bar.

How do I turn off this stupid stupid stupid error behavior of FIrefox?

I tried this and it didn't work. In about:config • keyword.enabled and toggle it from True to False. • browser.fixup.alternate.enabled and toggle it from True to False.

Hi, I received an email today saying lockwise will be 'resorbed' into Firefox.

I use Lockwise (for Android) as my password manager for other apps too, not just Firefox because I think it's a great product. Can I continue to use Firefox password manager to log into other apps such as money transfer apps?

If not, what do you suggest I do from 13th December? I hope I don't have to download a non Mozilla app.

Look forward to hearing from you soon.

Kind regards, Sadik

When I use gmail in FFx some emails don't fully open and display their contents but they do when I use MS Edge browser. Office Depot/Office Max sales emails in particular just open to show the Office Depot name, with no content below it. But when viewed in Edge everything works- the email displays everything that's on sale.

I have checked all help articles relating to this and checked all my settings and prefferences and everything is set as it should be. The screenshot attached shows a message from several months ago that never had this before. Please advise.

When I read content on a web page, I like to use the up and down arrows and PgUp PgDn to go through it. I hate having to reach over for the mouse and line everything up to go to the next screen. Since the last update, it seems I can't do that. When I hit the down arrow, or the PgDn key, it skips randomly down the page. This is especially true if I am reading an article with pictures in it. I think this might have something to do with my clicking yes to an inquiry from Firefox that just appeared on the page while I was browsing. It asked whether I wanted to be able to block text with keyboard commands. I'd like to change it back to whatever it was before, but can't figure out how to do that. Bill

When receiving the following messages when accessing a specific URL.

Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to xyz. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details.

Then clicking on the Advanced... button at the bottom of the popup window.

And then clicking on the Accept the Risk and Continue button.

My question is does Firefox make any changes to Internet Options or anywhere else, including within Firefox to change configurations of any type when the Accept the Risk and Continue button is clicked on?

Thank you!

My email is a tds account. I am able to send emails through Thunderbird, but I cannot receive emails from tds.net. I have checked/updated my server settings, which read mail.tds.net, port 993, STARTTLS, normal password. (per tds instructions) I have restarted Thunderbird and my computer. I can logon to tds.net (via Firefox) to see my emails; and I can use my iPad to see my tds emails. Thunderbird is not working correctly. This is a recent problem - starting in the last week or so.

Do I need/how do I set a password for outgoing server?

I have several email-accounts that I read via Thunderbird (let's call them a@myweb.se, b@myweb.se and so on). When I last set up a new account (c@myweb.se) and sent the first test message from it, as usual, the following matter came up: TB used my standard outgoing server, and that had the wrong username (a@myweb.se), as usual when I set up a new account.

This time, be it by clumsiness or due to changes in the GUI in the last update, I happened to change the username in my standard outgoing server (to c@myweb.se) and saved. I could then send emails from the new account, but not from my old account that uses the standard outgoing server.

I then added a new outgoing server with username a@myweb.se. Now when I try to send email from a@myweb.se I get the errormessage that the outgoing server denied access and that I should check my username.

I have a funny feeling that it wants my password actually. But I can't for the life of me find anywhere to type it in. I can see that my other three outgoing servers (amongst them the former standard with the changed username) have entries in saved passwords. The newly created outgoing server doesn't. I can't find a way to add an entry manually.

Is it really a passwordmatter, and how do I solve it?

I posted a similar request here: https://mozilla.crowdicity.com/post/742615, because "Submit Feedback" link redirected me there. Maybe this is the right place for the feedback.

The release note of FF Ver:93 states this:"When available system memory is critically low, Firefox on Windows will automatically unload tabs based on their last access time, memory usage, and other attributes. This should help reduce Firefox out-of-memory crashes. Switching to an unloaded tab automatically reloads it."

This is something those of us with modest RAM (4GB, in my case) have been waiting for, for quite a while. But, FF continues to hog significant memory in spite of the claimed changes as above. I don't see any perceivable changes to my system performance thus far even a few days since the update. The issue, as you'd know better, elevated RAM usage invariably causes a continual spike in Paging, leading to excessive Disk (HDD) usage > resulting in an unresponsive system, which eventually ends up in a system freeze (in my case at least). The only way out being a hard power-down and restart of the system.

I have also set the "Content process limit" to 4 in the settings to no avail. We'd appreciate if you could configure FF behavior to adapt when system resources are low than wait for things to be critical.
