1) Reinstalled Thunderbird doesn't open. (Had a lot of professional help yesterday with settings and other things of which I didn't understood anything.) I'm 75 and do need my e-mail a.s.a.p. 2) Change Firefox language from English to Swedish. I've tried myself in the lower right corner but it always sets back to English.

...and I don't receive any error messages. I've made sure it wasn't just my selected homepage. I tried other major cites like CNN.com, Amazon.com, etc. I just see a blank tab. However if I use Chromium (I run the latest LTS release of LinuxMint w/ Xfce desktop) websites open just fine.

I was attempting to configure a symbolic link to a security certificate so that I could run Schwab StreetSmart via Citrix Workspace via the directions given here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/59905065/using-schwab-streetsmart-edge-cloud-on-linux-citrix-error

This is the command I ran: sudo ln -s /usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla/DigiCert_Global_Root_G2.crt /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts/DigiCert_Global_Root_G2.pem

I then rebooted as the instructions say and when the system came back up I opened up FireFox and I wasn't able to access any sites. Also when I click on the drop down menu and click on "Preferences" in FireFox nothing happens. No error messages.

I even tried removing and reinstalling FireFox, it didn't help. I'm at a loss.

I click a magnet link and it keeps asking me what to do and I have already told it to do this automatically from now on. It even has the checkbox already ticked as if it is fkn retarded. I have refreshed firefox and nope I have uninstalled firefox and reinstalled it nope. I have checked all the forums about it and even made it so that the system cannot alter the default torrent program. Still, nothing works. I am so angry coz it used to be fine. So sick of updates that "fix" stuff... It would be nice if it just bloody worked.

Hi, lately I have been trying to tackle my secondary HDD being spun up for no reason in the background and one thing that keeps popping up is Firefox.exe accessing a bunch of fonts contained in the Solidworks installation on the HDD (which is a secondary drive, while Firefox is installed on the primary SSD).

I really cannot understand why it happens, since I think nobody is supposed to install Solidworks along with Firefox. Of course I don't want this activity to wake up my drive, but also, is it normal? I have to admit I'm kinda worried.

I'll attach screenshots from Sysinternals Process Monitor

Thanks in advance to anyone that will help :)

Ever since the last update (88.0.1), I have been unable to login to my bank, or IRS sites. SOMETIMES, if i clear cookes and cache, i can get into my bank, but then when i logout, i get the access denied message again, and can't log back in. These same sites work with no issue in Chrome.

This is infuriating. Can anything be done to fix this, or am i going to be stuck waiting for the next firefox update?

To work from home, my work Gmail account was added last year. Firefox is my default browser. I open Firefox, select Gmail & my home email account. It opens fine. It is the only tab open in Firefox. When I close the tab, my work account appears. If I open my home & then my work email, they both work. I close each one & after that, the inbox of only the work account appears. The normal operation always required opening my personal email first. Using my work account, required an extra step. If I do not take that step, and only the personal account is visable, when I close the personal account. the work one appears. This does not happen in Edge or Chrome.

Dear Firefox,

Will there ever be an option to quickly skim through parts of a webpage using "option+down" or "option+up" like there is in Chrome? It helps scrolling through long websites.

I had an account with my primary email, and wanted to change that email while also maintaining all the info I already had in it. So I added a secondary email, changed it to be my primary, and the deleted the secondary (ex-primary). The problem is: while trying to create a new account with my old primary email, it says that I need a valid primary email to login, but won't let me create a new account with it. ¿Can I actually do this, or will I need support from Mozilla?

Thanks.

My Evernote web clipper stopped working last night, and multiple attempts to get it working, including help from Evernote support. The issue seems to be related to cookies in some way. I was wondering if anyone else was having any problems with Evernote. Access to the Evernote website is also being affected.

My money program uses an importer to download files directly (rather than saving to desktop & manually importing. The institutions' choices always include OFX, QFX, and QIF. The Application list in Options lists OFX -- in two places-- and QFX. Both are assigned to the importer.

No matter what format I choose, I have to browse for the importer (several clicks). To check, I downloaded account information for several accounts held with the same institution, cycling through those 3 formats. Same result each time. "Always do this" is checked and OFX and QFX are assigned to the importer as you can see in the screenshot.

Shouldn't FF be adding QIF when I download activity in that format? I certainly didn't add OFX or QFX manually! And can anyone explain why "Use importer" is broken?

TIA mm

All FYI,

The latest update from FireFox, on my Kubuntu 18.04 LTS server, disconnected and disabled all my networking, at least I thought so. Rebooting did not help! Running test I could not ping www.google.com, but found I could ping any direct IP, thus Google's DNS server: 8.8.8.8 would ping. Checking I found that the update had disabled dhclient, so re-installed dhclient then ran:

  dhclient <active port>

Used ifconfig to find the active port and now back to working.

Hate it when the developer idiots do not follow the legally mandated "Must Test" laws. Always causes problems when they do not follow the laws!

Cheers!
