Hi everyone,

After the 85.0.0 update and still now with 85.0.1 and 85.0.2 firefox crashes. It's usually happened with clicking a link that'll take action outside of firefox (not a url link but a download attachment link in gmail or a print link). I've also had it happen with placing links from the search bar to the bookmark bar, and just recently opening up the 'show all bookmarks' window.

It'll hang, i won't be able to click anything, and then it'll give me the 'close window' screen. It's never fully crashed and given me an error message. I start up firefox again, restore the session and everything is back to where it was.

I've tried refreshing. I've tried creating a new profile. I've tried uninstalling and downloading 85 direct from mozilla. Nothing seems to be working. I'm going to see how it does for a bit in safe mode, but all the add-ons I have I've had way before the 85 update and all of them are recommended by mozilla.

I'm all ears (eyes?) for solutions!

Hello,

I love Mozilla Firefox thus am asking this.

Why is graphics performance worse in Firefox than it is on Microsoft's Edge and Google's Chorme browser?

Is it a matter of settings or what?

I have a AMD Ryzen 5 3400GE APU which is very capable of decoding 4k@60 VP9, but when I try watching Youtube videos in this video settings on Firefox, the frame reproduction isn't smooth. I don't have that problem with Chrome and/or Edge.

The video in question is the following:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Wo3aJjwTlA

PS: not sure why but some 4k@60 VP9 videos on Youtube lag more than others.

I just migrated my old Thunderbird 3.1 on an old Mac to Windows 10. Everything is good, but I can't find how to see my old Local Folders. I have years of business projects sorted on these folders. I've copied them to my new Profile (Mail>Local Folders) but I still don't see them. How do I get them to appear on my new Windows version?

bold textWhen I finally installed the most recent Thunderbird update, to 78.7.0, it crashed and I lost everything, including specialized mail folders and settings.

Is it possible to go back to a date just before that crash, to retrieve and reinstall those folders and settings/prefs via Time Machine on my Mac desktop? It's certainly not the easiest way to do this, but I don't know how else to get all of that back.

Thank you!

Am I crazy or is there something wrong?

I'm getting a new blue dot over the HTTPS icon on all pages. I am using the add-ons Noscript, uBlock and HTTPS everywhere, but this icon is new. I can find no reference to it in support articles; only the secure, insecure, and mixed (warning sign) variations of the icon I am familiar with.

I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox after getting insecure connections intermittently. I was using a game wiki (starbounder.org) and saw a "debug log" that seemed to be a list of IPs and user agents, with the URL of a site (cloudwayapps). The errors seem to have started after this, though this doesn't make much sense as I've never allowed cloudwayapps to run scripts, but it freaked me out. I cleared my cache and app data and never had an account until now; the install should be fresh. I browse with all javascript blocked by default and stick to major sites.

Attached is the icon displayed as I write this. What does it mean? Also, is there a way to get a "clean" install besides what I've tried? I want to keep using Firefox but these errors have my paranoia going.

Thanks for reading. Any help or feedback is appreciated.

When I record screencasts, I don't want people to see what extensions I'm using. For one, it's distracting, for second, it's a privacy issue.

In chrome (iron, opera...) I can quickly drag and resize the extensions area so nothing is seen. Fast an easy.

Is there a way to do this in Firefox. I am open to extensions or keyboard shortcuts as well!

(Pinning to overflow menu is not a solution. It takes many clicks and a long time.)

Thank you for any help.

Hi

I am migrating a Windows 7 PC to Linux Mint.

Originally the PC had Seamonkey, and reading about the migration I decided it is best to switch to Thunderbird. Migration from Seamonkey to Thunderbird worked fine on Windows 7.

I followed the instructions to migrate from Windows 7 to Linux on this thread https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1277613 but it does not appear to work.

I have done the following: 1. I renamed all files and folders under .thunderbird folder in Linux with -old so that I can recover them in case they are needed 2. Copied all files and folders including the ini files from Thunderbird profile in Windows to .thunderbird in Linux Mint 3. Copied all files from Profile folder into .thunderbird folder so profile folder is empty 4. I removed pkcs11.txt from the profile folder 5. Started Thunderbird in Linux

However, what I get is a message "Need to create a new profile because this is an older version", and it creates a new profile but it is all empty. No accounts (I have 5 accounts), no emails, or passwords!

I have checked and both Windows and Linux Thunderbird installations are the latest available versions. Windows (78.7.1 - 32-bit) and Linux (68.10.0 64-bit). I know I have not converted 32-bit to 64-bit, but I am unsure if that is the cause and if it is, how to carry out the conversion (and on which machine).

I have set up an account with S/MIME and OpenPGP encryption enabled in Thunderbird (78.7.0). So far so good, but I don't have keys for all my contacts (who has?). How can I disable the default encryption mode, so that I stop getting error messages when sending or saving mails? It's always reporting errors because it can't find encryption certificates. I can disable this by clicking "Security -> Don't Encrypt", but on every new message I have to disable encryption again if I don't have public keys for that person. This is annoying, especially if I have set the default options in the account settings to "not activated by default".

So, how can I prevent Thunderbird from setting this encryption to a default, when I don't want it to?

We have a site that for some reason just started getting blocked by FireFox's Tracking content setting in private browsing mode. We have a Production build that still works but our QA build does not. For the life of my I can't figure out what changed that would have triggered Tracking content to start blocking the site. Basically the site will load but we only get a blank page.

Is there any way to debug what exactly the Tracking content filter is blocking?

If I allow the preview pane to exist, then new messages will be marked as read even if I just have it highlighted. The settings will only allow me to set it so that messages won't be automatically marked as read, or that they will be after a set amount of seconds. This applies even if I don't fully open the message. Is there a way to have the message be marked as read only if I fully open it, while still having it set so that the preview pane visible?

Well let me begin by saying I 'LOVE MOZILLA AND THUNDERBIRD!'! Next I need help. I am not the brightest star in the computer sky. A kind phrase would be "Computer Challenged Olde Pharte". I want to escape Snoopy g-mail/Google & all the others including Facebook. But I have FOUR gmail addresses 1. church groups & the like; 2. E-pals Jokes & Stories; 3. JUnk Mail - all the stores that want your e-dress; & 4. e-Bay. I have Charter.net as my ISP. So they are where I get my T-bird emails. HOW can I or CAN I??? Get rid of gmail (I use Duck Duck Go for search engine) ??? Bless you all for what you do Being altruistic in this day & age is NOT easy!

More Explanation: My internet is provided by Charter/Spectrum. When I look at Thunderbird, it is on my charter email address. I have 4 gmail email addresses & 1 gmail Facebook address. Is there some way I can get e-mail accounts without having to use gmail, or hotmail, or the other big boyz? I guess I am okay with having to pay my widow's mite to an email provider who does not use all my communications to sell & otherwise profit from them. But how do I do that if it is possible? Thanks again good Firefox friends. Kathy Hall
