Hi there, I wonder if you can help.

I have tried everything that has been advised on the community chat, but still can't receive any emails to Thunderbird. It was working and then it suddenly stopped... I can send on Thunderbird. I can send and receive on my phone and on the web.

I have done the following:

  • Made sure "allow less secure... is on" CHECK
  • Updated Thunderbird CHECK
  • Got rid of large emails CHECK
  • Changed from pop to Imac (?) COULDN'T DO
  • Changed to OAuth2 password DIDN'T WORK
  • Restarted CHECK

It's been a couple of days now and still not working, any advise would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks, Rachel

Home & End Keys not working in Address & Search bar (macOS)

Hi there,

I'm currently running macOS 10.15.6 and Firefox 80.0.1.

I've not been able to get the Home and End keys on my keyboard to jump to the beginning and end of the URL inside the address bar for a while now. I know on macOS I can hit command+left and command+right to achieve the same behaviour. But so many sites (not this one; but Google Docs, reddit, etc) support the Home and End key behaviours.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to report bugs / feature requests, but maybe the community knows how I can even mimic this behaviour with extensions.

Thanks for reading!

When adding a new customer email to an address book, I realized all the other addresses in that book had been deleted. I checked All my address books and some were intact. Others wiped out. I didn't delete anything but the newest version of Thunderbird had installed automatically the other day. Now I've lost over 800 customer contacts!!! Is there a way to get them back?

I'm trying to print this page (https://eecaunt.github.io/kanji-sakuin.html), but firefox only prints out the first page, then stops. (Here's a small test version of the same page: https://eecaunt.github.io/kanji-sakuin-small.html)

You can see in the picture that it gets cut off.

Here's the pdf of the picture: https://mega.nz/file/6wwBUIaC#swNET5o7oGArqOuhxLqGhsPKElxznIe2aqvI0TFKO5E

If you see weird overlapping text, then just reload the page. idk why firefox sometimes doesnt finish loading the page…

As an aside: How do I keep the local links (that are in the webpage) in the PDF that Firefox generates?

I run on an iMac with display option Dark Mode set. The problem i have has to do with the brightness of the message pane. All the screen area surrounding this pane is dark ... this pane is a very bright white ... Is there a way for me set the background on this pane to be a light brown (for example) to lessen eye strain ?

I have searched high and low and tried all the tricks I know yet can't seem to resolve this issue.

On my laptop I have the latest version of Xubuntu installed, when I am using Firefox and try to download a file or save an image nothing happens. No dialog box appears asking where to save (I've enabled the save to a certain folder feature as well as the prompt where to save feature). This issue also exists when I want to upload anything. I can click the upload box to my heart's desire yet no dialog box pops up to upload. This is very frustrating I love Firefox I use it on all my devices but this issue unfortunately forced me to use chrome on my laptop, please if anyone has any advice or suggestions I'm all ears.

After having added an alternate email address in the Address Book of Thunderbird for one of my contacts, and entering that email address (by pasting it with CTRL + V) in a new email message, in the "To" field, when I clicked ENTER to go to the below line, Thunderbird changed the new email address to the primary email address of that contact (the one that was already there). It shouldn't have happened, it should have kept the email address I pasted and entered.

Please don't make the programs decide by the user what he should or should not do.

My computer shut down and with it went one tab. When I next opened firefox, onetab was not working at all. The icon was gone, everything was gone. I had to reset firefox completely and add all add ons again to get it working at all. I backed everything up before doing this. I have a tab hoarding problem and lost links to around 5000 tabs. I've got the previous session/old firefox data saved externally, plus old profiles. Is there any way to get my lost tabs back?

TLDR I need to extract my one tab data from my previous firefox folder which is saved separately. Please help.

Why Mozilla-Developer-Network/MDN Needs Access Into My GitHub Or Google Account To Login !? & Why MDN Does Not Allow To Use Mozilla Account Based Login ? isn't it Violation Of Privacy ?

Hi, i absolutely do-not-like & do-not-approve that Mozilla Dev Network MDN https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/ is FORCING/COERCING us/users TO GAIN (READ+WRITE OR ANY-OTHER) ACCESS INTO MY/USER'S GITHUB OR GOOGLE ACCOUNT to login into MOZILLA MDN site. This is clear Anti-privacy & Anti-Security activity, VIOLATION of PRIVACY-RIGHTS.

Any users can create an account in Mozilla here: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/accounts/

So WHY MDN does not allow to use that to login/access into MDN site ?! and instead FORCING users to use GitHub/Google account access based login ?

Why should i give "MOZILLA", a 3rd-party, VARIOUS-TYPES-OF-ACCESS into my Google/GitHub account ? !! !! !! !! just to view documents from Mozilla developer network site, Or to get Firefox Dev Tools, etc, etc !!

my accounts are used for my control over my projects & to have my control over my private data/emails. even a tiny moment of access into any such private account means PRIVACY is LOST, & NOT-PRIVATE anymore.

Mozilla can send a code into my email & i/user can post that code to Mozilla, to prove i'm/user-is the owner of the email-adrs ... and for entire world , this type of proof is sufficient (though not perfect).

So WHY MOZILLA IS NOT FIXING THIS/THESE ISSUES ?

If Mozilla need to send notification to me, it can use my email-address. if Mozilla needs to add/notify in GitHub in my projects, then it can use its own GitHub account to do so with specific direct MENTION to user(by using user's github-ID) , or it can send me/user specific code over email that i or a user can add myself/themselves. A user can also give Mozilla-bot a membership in their Github project to publish, or notify something. etc. etc. there is always alternative & PRIVACY-RESPECTING & better-security-practice solutions , w/o giving/having FULL-or-PARTIAL access into someone's GitHub/Google account.

So, I want to run Firefox from the command line withoug address bar and in a new window. I found that I can enable ssb and try it with: firefox -ssb http://127.0.0.1:6680/ This doesn't work, so I tried: firefox -ssb -url http://127.0.0.1:6680/ This opens it, not in a new window but in a new tab of an already existing session, and the ssb argument doesn't seem to work. Then, I tried: firefox -new-window http://127.0.0.1:6680/ This does work but again, there's still the address bar. The -ssb argument works with websites like google.com etc. but not local sites like the address I mentioned there. What do I do?

The latest Firefox (80.0.1) doesn't recognize or allow installation of the add-on (amba_5.1.0.13_win--1548386245064.exe) to be able to view my security camera (Foscam FI9928P). Prior to the update, I was able to access the camera just fine. Now I have to use Chrome or IE to be able to view camera web interface.

I am not sure what the Mozilla folks changed, but it really stinks to not be able to use FFox with my security cameras.

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

Is there a fix for this issue?
