I use Thunderbird as a mail program and it happens that when I attach documents in .docx format written with the LibreOffice program, a window appears with the message: c: / users / dario / Desktop / ............. odt cannot be opened because the associated application does not exist

I went into the programs settings and I see that in the Libre Office program the odt format is associated.

I want to clarify that the recipient manages to open the attachment regularly

I am running Firefox on a Mac. If I don't use Firefox for a while, and then try to load a website, it will take 30-60 seconds to load, and then I don't have any problems loading any websites. But if I let it sit for a while again, the same thing happens.

The same thing happens when I open Firefox for the first time and try to load a website. There is always a big delay. I am not having this problem with other browsers / applications.

I have posted this before, but haven't gotten any solution yet. I have years of history on my Firefox program, but continually delete and clean out my trash folders. Until recently, suddenly I can not delete a message. I have been using a gmail account and bringing these messages into firefox for the past four years, pretty successfully, until this problem. My program is up to date, so no help there and I have tried deleting the trash folder, without success.

  Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks Paul

I am on Mac OS 11.1 with Firefox 85.0.1 have an alternate profile called "no-adblock", when I start it from about:profile it opens the window but it hangs indefinitely with a beach ball.

I have started it with this command: /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox --foreground --P no-adblock

But it hangs just the same. No log output. How can I debug this? Is there a way to get the debug output?

Condition. 2-1 modern laptop with Windows 10, latest Firefox. In tablet mode, selecting a text field "raises" the on-screen keyboard for text entry only to be "killed". Problem is exclusive only to Firefox.

Desired action: OSK stays on screen until closed.

Context. This appears to have been a historical problem:

How do I stop Firefox moving the cursor to the address bar instead of focusing on the search box on my home page. The new "feature" means I have to either erase the address bar or click on the search box before I can start a search. It's not a big thing but it was fine before when I had the option to open the home page with the cursor already on the page.

Hi, The playback speed function has never worked for me on my PC Firefox browser with Windows 10. I have to use the Google Chrome browser to use that function. The playback speed on my Android YT app works fine too. But it's frustrating to have to keep opening the Google Chrome browser in order to speed up videos on the PC.

Environment: Firefox 85.0.1 (64 bit); Windows 10 (64 bit) I have established a websocket connection to my server. Everything is working fine in updating the several browser windows. With Firefox I got a problem. After I call my page with Firefox, actualization via the websocket connection are displayed fine in Firefox and other browser windows. My problem: If I call my page in Firefox and send data via <form> (simple generate a PDF without page refresh) my window didn't show the updates received via the websocket connection. It looks like, the connection to the server is lost or the incoming data is blocked/lost.

This is a problem just on Firefox. All other browser I tried (Chrome, Edge, Vivaldi, Opera, Cliqz, Brave) are working fine.
