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.

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?

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

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?

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.

Sometimes when I respond to an incoming email the sender does not receive my reply. I also tested cc'ing myself (to another Gmail email account I own), and the email was not delivered to that email address either.

However, if I create a BRAND NEW email entirely (from scratch) with EXACTLY the same subject line and body as the original (I copy and paste from the original email to the new one to ensure its exactly the same) and send that to the SAME person who sent it to me, they receive it every time.

I don't understand the following:

(2) Why the brand new email I create with exactly the same subject line and body works every time when responding to the same sender.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Any assistance will be appreciated.

How To Access Hangouts/GTalk/GoogleTalk CHAT web-service inside Thunderbird TAB

How To Access Hangouts / GTalk / GoogleTalk CHAT web-service inside Thunderbird TAB:

Details here: https://stackoverflow.com/a/63255601/3553808 (please upvote my Q+A both there if its useful/helpful)

BRIEF SUMMARY:

TB = Thunderbird.

Tested + worked on Thunderbird : v68.12.1 , v78.7.1 (and one step earlier TB).

• Load "BrowseInTab" TB addon : TB > Tools > Addons > in "Find More Extensions" box, type: BrowseInTab click on [ + Add To Thunderbird ] button > "Add" > restart TB. • Also load "Open Tab" TB addon : TB > Tools > Addons > in "Find More Extensions" box, type: Open Tab click on [ + Add To Thunderbird ] button > "Add" > restart TB.


• Also load an Advertisement & Harmful Code/Script Blocking type of addon that can work inside TB , or else Harmful/abusive website codes will begin to abuse your computer, & increase electrical power consumption, & overheat/warm your computer, & abuse thunderbird, & waste your internet data limits, steal DATA ( theft of Privacy), etc, etc, etc: LOAD the "uBlock Origin" addon for Firefox, inside the Thunderbird . (as of this moment, it works). How to do that, is outlined in detail, inside the linked page's SOLUTION # 1 : https://stackoverflow.com/a/63286125/3553808 (please upvote my Q+A both there if its helpful/useful)


• now send a HTML-formatted email (not plain-text Email) , into any one of the email-address (or email account) that is already setup in your Thunderbird, in that email you must send an URL LINK, this link: https://www.hangouts.google.com/ . You can also type the full URL manually in a new email (before sending), then select that full URL text & press Ctrl+C (or Cmd+C) to copy into buffer memory > TB main menu > Insert > Link > paste the copied link by pressing Ctrl+V (or Cmd+V) > Ok . Send to yourself or into another email-address that is inside the same TB.


• Inside TB if you select option to allow all Cookie ( a tracking file with tracking codes ) , then TB begins to store all types of Cookies : Unnecessary & unsafe & tracking & monitoring & advertisements, etc related ALL TYPE OF COOKIES/codes ... • So such is not a safe, not secured, not Privacy-Right respecting practice, & not-recommended. • Some users lack knowledge on how to increase security/privacy , and Some (lazy+ignorant) users prefer convenience over extra steps which will be necessary to take, to increase security/privacy. • Your dog learns or you have to TRAIN it , when it need to bark, and when it does not need to bark, when outsider or unwanted comes close ... similarly you have to train your TB on what to stop & what to allow. • Goto TB (Thunderbird) "Preferences" (or "Options"/Settings ) > then find/goto "Privacy" > goto "Web Content" section. Thunderbird - Preferences - Privacy - Web Content - Exceptions: • it should by-default have the option "Accept Cookies From Sites" unselected , for now keep it like that, ( if not-unseleted , then unselect it ) > then, in that same row , in right side, there is a button [ Exceptions ] , click on that > a new window will popup/appear : type-in (or copy from here) each of below web-address (URL) into the "Address of Website" textbox, & then press [ Add ]/[ Allow ] button :

  • The "Hangouts" web-service:
    https://hangouts.google.com/
    https://accounts.google.com/
    https://myaccount.google.com/
    https://ogs.google.com/
    https://clients6.google.com/
    https://clients4.google.com/
    https://chat-pa.clients6.google.com/
    https://chat-pa.clients4.google.com/
    https://people-pa.clients6.google.com/
    https://people-pa.clients4.google.com/
    https://signaler-pa.clients6.google.com/
    https://signaler-pa.clients4.google.com/
    https://ssl.gstatic.com/
    https://www.gstatic.com/
    https://apis.google.com/
    https://aa.google.com/
    https://0.client-channel.google.com/ (You will have to add multiple of these servers, by changing "0" into other numbers: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ... etc, Add upto atleast 30 . Which exact one will be used, depends on which one is free & randomly selected by google to serve your connection)

After all URLs are added/allowed/entered , then press [ Save Changes ].


• goto the received email which has the link https://hangouts.google.com/ in Thunderbird (TB) > right-click on that LINK > you will see an new option "Open Link in New Tab" , use/select that , a new web-browser TAB will open up inside the TB=Thunderbird.


• Login/signin to Hangouts website : Enter your GMail email-address > "Next" button > enter gmail google account's main password , and wait few seconds , then you can use it for CHAT. This process uses full standard encryption/secured protocols for all parts of communication , so its more safer.


• Google's "Hangouts" site/web-service allows to do VoIP (voice over internet protocols) chat , VoIP to Direct Dial (into mobile/landline phone) chat , Video chat over Internet , Text (over internet) chat , SMS text chat , etc . ( it mixes/combines various services ). Google will stop VoIP to Direct Dial chat , SMS text chat , etc services/options in "Hangouts" website/web-service , And move some of those services/features into their "Voice" website/web-service . The "Voice" site will have almost all features of earlier "Hangouts" site : SMS text chat , Text (over internet) chat , VoIP chat , VoIP to Direct Dial chat , etc. The "Hangouts" based Text CHAT/chatting (over internet) functionality will keep on working in "Hangouts" website/web-service. Their "Meet" site/service will provide Video Meeting (Video over internet), etc web-services. Long time ago Google moved GTalk (aka: google-talk , google-chat (not gsuite), etc) web-service(s) into their "Hangouts" website/service.


• TB itself has a builtin purple library & wrappers, etc for it , which uses XMPP/Jabber protocols to connect with GTalk text chat network service. That/those has/have bugs (and very old) , & does not use full standard security measures in all areas of communication , see here/below few bug reports : So avoid that builtin option inside the TB , and use the option i have shown above, which uses full standard TLS/SSL security (from user's TB to google servers). • https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1258255https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1092701https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1122567https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=955019https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/security/known-vulnerabilities/thunderbird/https://www.cvedetails.com/vulnerability-list.php?vendor_id=452&product_id=3678&page=1&cvssscoremin=7&order=1&trc=921https://www.cvedetails.com/vulnerability-list.php?vendor_id=452&product_id=22102&page=1&cvssscoremin=7&order=1&trc=216

TB's builtin GTalk option using old components, and does not use newer App-Password (or OAuth2) or newer full standard+safer TLS/SSL communication , so user have to use google account main password with old components in TB , and that is not good.


TB is a communication suite type of software , it needs to have more & more INSTANT communication features , by using standard security protocol based solutions. Users worldwide using more & more instant messaging/communications.


More you use TB , & contribute to TB development , more functions & features will be integrated with more/higher security , when you/user will keep on requesting them.

With concerns about supply chain security, I would like the ability to ensure that the file download matches a recognized checksum.

Downloading from: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/78.6.1/releasenotes/ yields checksum SHA256 55249C4861FE521CB32D72785481A146B64812AF2ECE7341FAAA5C79ABC0F395

This does not match any of the checksums available at: https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/78.6.1esr/

Best practice would be to publish the official checksum along with the release notes.

Is there another way to close the loop on this?

I don't know how, but I now have two Sent folders - one in the "normal" TB folders and the second called Sent Mail under a Gmail folder.

When I send an email, copies are saved in both the Sent and Sent Mail folders. If I delete an email in one of these folders, then that email is deleted in both folders.

I would like to eliminate one of these Sent folders without losing emails that have been sent. The reason is this may take up server room in my linked email account.

The second thing is that I would like to get back to the "normal" TB folders and not have this additional gmail folder.

Below is an image of my folders in TB to clarify the above.
