My bank has upgraded their online system and designed it to use Microsoft Edge. I can no longer sign on to it with Firefox. Is this fixable?

Greetings Forum:

After an upgrade, I noticed my Thunderbird installation on Debian 11 LXQt was no longer able to update email for any of my previously configured gmail accounts. Non-gmail accounts on the same TB installation are unaffected. The bottom window where I normally read emails shows:

Your connection is not secure

The website tried to negotiate an inadequate level of security.

live.thunderbird.net uses security technology that is outdated and vulnerable to attack. An attacker could easily reveal information which you thought to be safe. The website administrator will need to fix the server first before you can visit the site.

Error code: NS_ERROR_NET_INADEQUATE_SECURITY

I have not made any changes on the gmail side and I can still access the gmail account directly via WUI as well as my android app. Does anybody have any suggestions?

How can we remove the "New Tab" option when right clicking a tab? I find this feature absolutely useless as there's already and "+" tab button to create a new tab. I used to be able to reload tabs easily and quickly by Right-Click tab, Left-Click and the Reload option was selected. NOW, I have to move the mouse down to the Reload option, or press the "R" key on the keyboard. Simple things, yes, but something that is easily annoying if it's added when it's not needed and having to change the way we use the browser. What would of been nicer is that "Pinned" tabs would always be pinned, regardless if that window was the last to be closed or not.

Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 87 and noticed that I wasn't able to go back to the previous webpage by clicking on the backspace button like what I have done in the past if I'm not using a mouse on my laptop and had to click on the back button in the toolbar with the trackpad. I'm not too sure of why that happened with the upgrade and was a little surprised about that. Hope I can be able to get around this in some way if one of you know anything about this. Thanks.

Hello,

after an update up to Firefox 89.0 (64bit) on my elementaryOS 5.1.7 (based on Ubuntu 18.04) I've got a grey-colored rectangle in the upper part of my window that overlays all elements of websites (cf. attached screenshot), however I still could pass via hyperlinks if there are any under the rectangle. It is very light grey in light mode and dark grey in dark mode.

I've tried following steps according to possible solutions found in the Internet : - launch Firefox in safe mode (the rectangle disappears) - make sure the default theme is used - turn on/off the hardware acceleration - update or disable and delete all add-ons and plug-ins (rectangle still present in normal mode) - delete and reinstall Firefox with wiping all its files on the local machine (including /home/user/.mozilla and /etc/firefox* folders) - delete again and install the flatpak version


Nothing of the above helps except of the safe mode. As I have tried already to delete add-ons and plug-ins, what else can I disable to try to solve the issue in normal mode ?

I would appreciate your help as this is the only browser that I (want to) use on a daily basis. Thanks in advance!

I use Thunderbird for my Earthlink email account (imap). I have not changed any configuration options. I was checking my email and I noticed that I only have mail that goes back to May 21, 2021. I used to have older mail in my Thunderbird mail account. I do have a backup of my Thunderbird directories that may contain the old emails. But, when I load / restore the MSF and email files from the backup, it still deletes the older emails.

Is there a way to recover these emails from a backup? The emails where in the main inbox and not subfolders.

I always used the original Firefox search as my home page; one simple little panel in the middle of the page with a quick and easy search feature. I loved it. The latest version of Firefox has ruined it. Now we are forced to search from the address bar. I hate, loathe, and despise doing a search from the address bar. It is an A-1 nightmare. After you type one letter, it stops registering what you type and throws up a ridiculously long list of the web pages you've visited. Type another letter, and you have to go through this mess again. It makes for an absurdly slow search and never actually gets you to what you're searching for. I wound up with search results that weren't even related to each other much less related to what I was searching for. After one day of use, I'm so frustrated with this feature that I'm opening Google to do the search.

How do we reset this new version of Firefox to only search from the Firefox homepage search box and not go anywhere near that address bar? Or do I have to uninstall the latest update to get Firefox to function properly again? Even if it's an add-on that forces the search to where it belongs...anything!

Since a few days, when I visit Google Maps, after completely loading the page (roads and buildings shown for a brief moment) the map becomes wholly black with just captions still readable.

Doing the following didn't fix: Restart Firefox. Update Nvidia Drivers (updated yesterday to 466.11, didn't resolve). Disable every add-on and setting default theme. Disable Hardware Acceleration from settings.

THIS temporarily fixed: Entering Firefox Troubleshoot mode.

So I assume the problem is in advanced settings. There are TONS of settings there. Any ideas? I 'd rather not go through a Firefox Refresh losing all site permissions/fine tuning for cookie settings/blocked content for every site made in years. I'm on Firefox 88, Windows 10 64bit ver. 2004, GeForce 950M, Core i7-4720HQ, 16GB RAM.


I put "again" in the title since another question about this is marked as solved for Firefox 68/69. Needless to say, I tried everything from that discussion (such as switching gfx.webrender.all), to no avail for the present issue.

I just updated to Firefox v.89.0. When I open up a new tab, I get my Bing search engine with a text box in the middle of the page. When I start typing in this text box, my typing automatically goes instead into the address text box. Prior to this version of Firefox, my typing stayed the in Bing (or Google, etc.) search text box. I've tried to look up solutions which sent me to About:config keyword.enabled and other settings but nothing I've tried fixes this problem. I want my search in the larger (Bing) search text box, not in the address (urlbar) text box which is much smaller text. As I said, prior to this version of FIrefox, my typing stayed in the search text box and didn't automatically get moved into the address text box. Please advise.

Good morning. My Firefox appears to have updated overnight and now my menu bar is a light grey colour instead of it's original black. I want to reset the menu bar colour to black because I now have no contrast between it and my tabs. I have searched the help articles but none of them tells me how to do this. I am directed down the path: settings> extensions and themes> manage your themes.

Unfortunately I can see no way to 'manage' this theme. I would mention that I am a native English speaker but any so called 'discussion' of this issue uses what I call 'geek-speak' which is unintelligible to a non IT professional.

I would be most grateful for someone to explain to me in simple terms (ie keystroke by keystroke) how to re-set my menu bar colour to black, whilst noting that the text for (file, edit,view etc) needs to then be white rather than the pale grey which it has become.

As an after thought, does anyone know which developer it is that thinks it a good idea to mess with my original view settings during an update. It is NOT helpful and, quite frankly, really annoying.

Many thanks in advance to you wizards out there Chris

I set up Firefox on my phone but did NOT have my PC handy at the time. I set up sync which NOW, in retrospect, seems to have been a MAJOR mistake. Now when I try to pair my PC and phone, I am told to go to my phone and start sync (which is ALREADY started) and select camera (which is NOT present--probably because sync is already started). I have tried sms sync but it will NOT accept my phone number, even with the country code. I have come to an impasse here and have no idea where to turn. With about 50 bazillion threads on common sync issues I cannot find anybody with this particular problem in the threads, so please do not flame me if the thread already exists... I just could find nothing on it. (though as soon as I submit, I probably will find it--that is the way it always works with me...) So... the question is... How do I convince my phone's firefox browser that it needs to pair with my PC's firefox browser, given that I have no options for it in the current sync setting?

Hello there,

im using Thunderbird and its Calendar for years. Recently moved to a new Computer and made a fresh account. Now the Calendar is displaying only in AM/PM Format. I read some articles stating that it mirrors the systems timesettings, but those are 24h. What makes this particularly annoying is that if i open a date it will give me the 24h option only. When this date is saved it will then translate falseley into AM/PM which makes my calendar useless... (eg. 19:00 is translated to 10:00 (dont know if am or pm))

What can I do to fix this issue? Would love to continue using Thunderbird Calendar.

btw. im on Win 10. Using my Calendar mainly in combination with Google Calendar. Already tried with just provider for google calendar activated and lightning as well activated. same result.
