Option to reduce touchpad sensitivity at the end of each scroll

There are ongoing discussions about the high touchpad scrolling sensitivity on several Wayland applications like Firefox. Luckily, I found a workaround with this issue by setting `apz.gtk.kinetic_scroll.enabled` to `false` and increasing the default value of `general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS` from `50` to `120`. However, there is still minor quirk with my scrolling experience especially at the end of each scroll or each time I pause scrolling.

This minor quirk has a lot to do with how I do the two-finger scroll gesture. For each scroll, I don't necessarily lift my fingers up immediately. I might pause for a while then scroll further until my finger reaches the end of the touchpad or I might scroll in the opposite direction without lifting my finger up. However, just having two of my fingers rest on the touchpad detects even the slightest movement. The effect is a page slightly shakes each time I pause scrolling without lifting my fingers up. Although, this minimal shake also occurs as I lift my finger up.

This behavior is detailed in a bug report here . It might have something to do with Wayland but based on my experience, the issue still persists when running Firefox through XWayland. Also, Vivaldi (Chromium) which also runs in XWayland, doesn't show this problem. In Vivaldi, the touchpad will be less sensitive (at least that's how it feels for me) each time I pause scrolling.

I already tried fiddling with the following through the `about:config` to no avail:

  • apz.touch_move_tolerance
  • apz.touch_start_tolerance
  • mousewheel.transaction.ignoremovedelay
  • mousewheel.transaction.timeout

The directions for downloading photos does not describe a real scenario. Websites don’t all have a Download button and if they do, it loads the pic up on a tab all by itself. And the remaining steps don’t apply.

>> How can I download photos from web pages open in FireFox? <<

I keep Safari on my iPhone only because it downloads photos in a few simple steps. Except for this problem, I love FireFox

I had a folder on my desktop that I created a couple months ago and then deleted. However, for some reason it keeps coming back, and I've discovered that it happens whenever I download something. This seems to happen regardless of where I save something or where the pop-up for choosing the download destination automatically opens to. It also seems to be specific to firefox, as this doesn't seem to happen with other browsers.

I should add that it's only the folder itself that comes back. Before I originally deleted it, I emptied its contents and it's only the empty folder that keeps reappearing on my desktop

Just a general question : firefox on windows I used to have lastpass as password manager. as they are moving out nice features from the free version to the payed version I switched to lockwise. But it does not maintain automatically your password. What password manager are you using ? does it have the maintain feature of updated password ? Thanks for all recommendations Best regards, Guy

I have reinstalled the OS on my lap top and after a successful login to my account I am unable to sync everything from the account. The logs can be found in: https://controlc.com/8afabe84

I have the same account set on two different devices (My desktop PC and my android phone, this device I am trying to sync is the third one) and both those device were synced long time ago.

I tried with another profile which I am using for my work related stuff, still no success. First I tried syncing on Ubuntu 20.10 and then installed on Ubuntu 20.04(currently) but it is without success.

I need to sync to this device the bookmarks, extensions, saved logins, etc... Currently I do not have my other PC to export this stuff, please help.

Some of the thing in the logs:

Hi,

I am not sure when this started, but when I start up Thunderbird I have 2-3 minutes of 100% disk activity BUT only when there is new email... It even takes long enough for the connection to the POP server to time out. My whole system becomes unresponsive/unusable until this is finished.

CPU activity is minimal during this time, but with iotop i see Thunderbird taking up to 99.99 of io... See screenshot. I moved the old profile folder out of the way and created a fresh one, so that's not it. I feel it might be Thunderbird indexing the email that i have stored locally, but there is no noticeable difference between my old profile of 1.2GB and the current almost empty one?

I am on Ubuntu Mate 18.04.5 64bit and using Thunderbird 78.9.1 64bit.

I hope someone has a fix for this...

TIA

Hello everyone,

I am a suscriber of an association newsletter and sometimes they ask us to write someone an e-mail. They have already written it, so there is just a button/link in the newsletter to click, and the pre-filled mail window opens and we just have to send it.

But since a few months now I can't open those links. And I don't know why. When I try, a new tab opens but it loads indefinitely. Here are some screens of what I see (I'm French, so my Thunderbird is set to my language).

I stay available for further infos if needed. Thank you.

DDG search term entered is, as an example, "asus strix gtx 750ti 4g kaufen" (problem happens with any search term). Paging down in the list of results, I get many hits that a seemingly "routed" over a misused URL (which as the search term addended to it). Selecting such a result always brings up the same "strange" page with "pointers" to amazon. Leaving the page puts me automatically on the unwanted amazon page.

It is very annoying. Happens with more or less all search terms.

No virus, at least BitDefender full scan says so. I'm using private mode, HTTPS on and Ublock origin. Haven't changed my method of searching - this problem exist since a few weeks (MZ since v.86). Chrome and Opera work fine - they say either "503 error" or "page not found" ...

How can I fix this - maybe the uploaded image can help diagnose the problem?

Hi, as of yesterday I'm no longer able to use firefox, since browsing doesn't work anymore. As soon as I try to load a page, a messge pops up that said that due to a possible health risk firefox doesn't even bother to connect (and of course I looked for a link that allowed be to go on) The test is geman, but I think that the basic of the message. Unfortunately there is no support whatsoever in other languages.

I think I can change the settings in opera, which, as the best browser atm, would be a real improvent to firefox, but I am not able to export the chronic as well as the bookmarks, that why I stayd with FF. But now, since FF isn't running anymore, I decided to finally improve my Browser. How do I import bookmarks,chronic and other settings form FF to Opera ?

Suddenly, beginning about three days ago, selecting a tab doesn't always then display that tab but instead the tab is selected in "multiple tab selection" mode WITHOUT pressing the CTRL key. Clicking on a tab highlights the tab instead of displaying the tab. Another click on the tab deselects the tab. Clicking on other tabs, selects rather than displaying them.

Believe me, I understand what multiple tab selection is, how it works and how to correctly use it. This is not the case. I use tabs all day, every day and suddenly Firefox behaves erratically and randomly by selecting the tab and multiple tabs rather than displaying the tab selected.

The workaround is to then select other tabs, deselect all tabs and then select the originally desired tab whereby the tab is displayed. If this is anomaly is unique me and only me, I will take my search to the Linux Cinnamon forums.

Thunderbird 78.9.1

I used to have lots of messages in my Trash. I sometimes go back and look for messages for information that I forgot and now there are only ones for the last week. Is there a setting to change that?

Also I had lots of recurring tasks and they have disappeared. What happened there? Can I retrieve those now?

Thanks.
