I have used Thunderbird for almost 20 years and I love it. I have not had basically any problems with it until this fall when I started to direct my gmails through it too. Before that, I only directed the emails from my university's server.

My computer's OS (C:) memory started to run out. The Storage claimes that my Apps & Features tool 189 GB although I did not have a lot of different kinds of programs there. I just found out that the reason is the hidden files under Users/...../AppData Properties/Roaming/Thunderbird/Profiles/..../ImapMail/imap.gmail.com/[Gmail].sbd takes 143 GB!!!

I do not understand how this is possible and how to solve this problem. Can I safely remove the folders under [Gmail].sbd? If not, how to solve this problem? My computer is soon dysfunctional because the OS memory is running out.

Thank you for your help.

Greetings, I am trying to fill out a PDF form using Firefox's built in PDF viewer and form editor. I'm running Linux (Ubuntu) with Firefox 84. I am able to successfully view and "Open" the PDF within the browser, and even edit the text properly. However, upon saving or printing, the text gets rendered with a massive font size nullifying the ability to edit in browser. I've been trying to find some online resources without success, and can't seem to find others reporting a similar case.

I've disabled all extensions and restarted Firefox, but did not notice any change in behavior. Any tips for debugging? Attached are two pics of the PDF form while editing, and then the rendered PDF after saving.

I have a question, that's actually pretty simple:

Is there any information from Firefox Relay about, if an alias is re-assigned to another user after they have been deleted by the first user? Or is Relay making sure, that every alias is only used once if deleted. Otherwise you could try and to recover services and passwords from other's peoples services after they got deleted.

thanks!

How can I sign up for Mozilla (firefox) forum?

I have an account, but won't recognize my credentials. They ARE correct.

I try to set up a new account and the security question "how many letters in Mozilla" doesn't work. The answer is 7, but says it's wrong. WFT?

Disably overly insisting updates

When Firefox asks if I want to download an update and I agree, soon after that but not right away it stops working - on every new page it says "we need to restart to finish updating" <- this last bit is VERY annoying. Is there a way to keep FF working in such situation? I usually have 3 FF profiles running, about 10-20 tabs each and when it suddenly does this - I can restart them all but when it is suitable for me.

The only solution I can see so far is disabling updates via group policies (which is not well documented, where do i put this policies.json on fedora? need to google that).

Any other ways to keep updates and FF running until I decide when to restart? Thanks.

Since the latest upgrade of FireFox 84, I have been having troubles with some websites like Disney + , Amazon Prime and playing videos from youtube Facebook and some other sites on both Windows and Linux. I believe I read that Firefor was going to stop using Adobe plugis or some kind of plugin. Like i said after it updated that is when the trouble started. MX19 (A LXDE distro based on antix which was originally a lightweight off shoot of Mepis) the build team do build new package when updates are released. I had to download and use Chrome (which I really hate) to watch these video and also use Doxy video service to talk to my Dr,s) Here is a typical screenshot TY

Firefox keeps 'forgetting' login details for the websites I frequently visit. I also have difficulties with help articles tha bear no resmblance to the details i find on my browser

I find that my current version of Firefox browser (84.0.2 (64 bit)) seldom saves login details for websites that I regularly visit, despite my clicking the 'save' or ' update' buttons on the dialog box that appears when I log in manually. For example, I must have entered half a dozen or more details manually in the last and clicked the 'save' button on the dialog box tha appears but the 'login and password' menu item only shows two that have been saved that day.

I can find nothing that has had any effect in the present help topics.

Another annoying aspect is that help topics appear to prescribe 'fixes' that have no parallel in the details that appear on the actual browser menu items.

I apologise in advance to the relevant developers, but I am now questioning why I should persevere with such a 'buggy' app that used to perform beautifully in the past.

I am exited that Mozilla finally wants to start censoring/deplatforming radical sites! I agree that only some viewpoints are safe enough for the internet. I don't want my kids exposed to religious/gun zealots. I would like to volunteer to help nominate sites for removal from the internet, are you looking for help?
