Using Firefox (92.0) on Win 10. I have noticed that some screen objects are displayed in different ways on Firefox than they are on Edge (and I presume other browsers). For a long time I thought the problem was errors in the Rite Aid web design. Yesterday I saw a similar problem on another site and decided to try another browser. The displays looked proper on Edge. See attached image which shows the same screen on the Edge browser (top) and Firefox (bottom). Part of the logon window is missing on Firefox. Other objects are affected also such as text size. I don't see any options in the Firefox config that would apply to this.

Whenever I go to "Save file to device" on a picture, video, etc., there seems to be unnecessary delay, as though it is downloading the already downloaded file all over again. Confirmed by disabling wifi, trying to save an already completed file, and a message "Download failed" appearing.

Well, this is not so good. Wastes my bandwidth, and takes more time than it needs to.

To the point, how do I get the browser to just save the file that is already downloaded and cached, instead of redundantly downloading it again?

Event invitation responses in Thunderbird broken

Until recently, it used to be true that no matter which personality an event invitation received by a Thunderbird user was sent to, the Accept/Decline response was sent from "main" personality. (How was this determined? First entered during setup? Top of the list? I don't know. Doesn't matter.)

This was both an operational and a privacy issue, since it's often not appropriate to reveal, for example, a personal email address to a business contact, and will often be confusing to the recipient of the response.

In a recent update to Thunderbird, this behavior was changed such that when responding to an *original* invitation addressed to other than the main personality, Thunderbird presents a pop-up window that says "you're not invited..." and a drop-down list so you can choose which personality to respond from. Big step in the right direction.

However, if there's a subsequent email received with a *change* to an event time, etc., the Accept/Decline response is again only sent from the main personality. There's no obvious way to change this. This needs to be fixed.

A possible fix would be the pop-up window and drop-down list presented to the original invitation.

From my point of view a better fix would be to send *all* invitation responses - original and change - from the personality they're received in, pretty much just like the "reply" function. Much cleaner, fewer clicks, right outcome.

Perhaps there's a reason not to take my approach, but I can't think of it. At a minimum, my "possible fix" should be implemented.

I need to download a certificate from a device in my networt called secunet Konnektor

https://www.secunet.com/loesungen/einboxkonnektor

on the manual it's written how to do it.

https://www.secunet.com/loesungen/einboxkonnektor#c1607

I suggest to find a manual somewhere in the first link or in google:

chapter 7.4.3

go to chrome (same with edge)

click on the lock on the left hand side of the link https://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:8500/management

somehow click on the button where you can open a small windows called "certificate".

The "General" tab shows informations about the certificate.

Click on the tab "Details" and click on "Copy file".

The certificate-assitent opens and after clicking on next, you choose DER-coded-binary X.509 (.CER)

Save the file somewhere where you can find it.

I can't do this on firefox

On firefox I can find a lock on the left hand side of the link https://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:8500/management

when i click on it and then on something else, i can then click on more informations.

a windows opens called "page informations"

under "security" i click on "view certificates" and a new tabs opens called "certificate for konnektor".

but there is no possibilty to download a cer-file. only a pem file and it doesn't really help me.

Latest update broke usability of Firefox. Firefox no longer remembers which tab I was on before I moved away from it. It’s opening a new tab and don’t even get me started on the button movements.

There should be some minimum usability studies a product must do so that they don’t mess up too badly.

It would be great, If there a way to add Custom Filter Lists to in-built Ad and Tracking Protection.

Next Thing, In this year of WWDC, Apple announced that it is going to Bring Extensions for Safari for iOS and iPadOS which is built on WebKit. Firefox for both iOS and iPadOS is also built on WebKit.

So, Will Firefox bring Extension to iOS ?

I have been using Thunderbird as my email client with a GoDaddy domain. I would always download my emails locally using Thunderbird so I could view emails even when offline. I recently transferred the domain to Namecheap and then connected the email account associated with that domain to google workspace. When I made that change, the thunderbird client would no longer display any of the emails, including the ones I downloaded locally. I now get a message that the email account has the incorrect password, which I understand from the domain change.

My question is, once I make adjustments to reconnect the email account with thunderbird, will I be able to access the emails I downloaded previously, or will it delete or write over the old emails that were downloaded before the domain change?

EDIT----- OK, turns out the Android devices needed restarting for some reason. They're OK now. No such luck on the Linux, I'm afraid.

Filters don't always work on new messages in the Inbox. Most of my filters are set to look for specific "From" entries then move them to the appropriate folders for each message. When email is downloaded from the server some filters work, but some hang up and require me to click on the displayed message to acknowledge that message. Once all the acknowledgements have been done, and while I am still in the Inbox, I then click on "Tools/Run Filters on Folder" and ALL of the messages that did not originally get moved to the correct folders per the filters set for them, now work beautifully! Why won't some filters work when first run on Inbox, but they work later, and how can I avoid the laborious manual response requirement for those that don't work the first time? I should add that there is no consistency to which filters run, or do not run. Even when I go to the folder for a message that did not get moved to that folder, and "fix" that folder, some future messages still don't get moved the first time through running filters when those messages arrive in the Inbox.
