I'm going to say that for the last 3 versions of Firefox, I've had issues with many pages not loading images, not displaying the most current data, and every once in a long while (very infrequent) a page will just fail to completely load and I'll have to hit refresh so the wheels on the bus keep spinning.

Pages I have issues with: Yahoo Yahoo News Facebook CNN

The not loading images is the most frequent issue. Sometimes I'll need to reload a page a couple of times to see a pic. This is NOT on pages I have cached, but rather new pages I'm visiting.

The issue of not seeing new content is especially clear when approving new members or posts to a group within Facebook. This is a very regular occurance.

I just recently reloaded my computer from scratch (Mid Feb 2021), and this did NOT alleviate the issue, but rather it continued unabated.

The loading image issue looks like this.

This has been an issue of mine for the past few days and I can't find a fix. I've tried to troubleshoot it and I've repeatedly reinstalled Firefox several times. The application either:

a. Doesn't open at all after I click the icon b. Freezes, refuses to register inputs and/or crashes c. Works temporarily, eventually turns into part B

My OS is Windows 10 and I want Firefox to be my default browser but it's not running properly at all on my computer. I have sent multiple crash reports because of this. Does anyone know what the problem could be? This has never happened to me before.

Hi,

As in the topic. When I scan the QR code with Google Authenticator, the account is added and new codes start spinning (labeled Firefox ($email)). However, when I enter the visible code into the Enter security code input, I get "Incorrect security code" error (tooltip).

I can see Google Authenticator listed as a supported application, is this no longer valid?

I also tried typing the secret key into the app directly with the same results.

Thanks for help in advance.

Hello Friends,

It has been one or two weeks since my main business mail accounts have stopped working in Thunderbird on my office Computer. They are all from one domain, the other private mail accounts - also new ones - function without problems. First I have tried ereasing them and to install them new but none of the four existing mail adresses are acepted. The message I get is: "Login failed. Either the entered access data is incorrect, or other, separate access data are required" If I try again, Thunderbird says: "Thunderbird couldn't find any settings for your email account" The data I am using is absolutely correct and is working on several other machines like Laptop, smartphone, accountants PC etc. I installed MAILBIRD on the office PC and the COOLFLATS mail adresses work perfectly with the same access data ! I have completely reinstalled the office computer 3 days ago and nothing changed. I also noticed one remarkable thing: If I try to install one of the COOLFLATS mail accounts on a computer, where the "old" coolflats accounts are still working, I get the same error message as on my office computer. Now this is really weird, has anyone an explanation or a solution to this weird problem or am I forced to leave Thunderbird and move to the alternatives ?

Kind regards: Hardy

I know there are a lot of people, who never add a extension. But most of us get one or more extensions. I really like searching for them. I install them one at a time, and test them. If they crash Firefox, I go back and let them know, and they fix it. Also when you go to install a extension, it says which versions of Firefox it is compatible with. As this new version has been in beta for about a year there should be a lot more than nine extensions available for me to test. There should be so many by now that it should have its own search page separate from the old Firefox for Android search page. But you let it come out of beta with only nine recommended extensions, and no search page, and no way for me to install the extensions that I like to use, to test if they will work with the new version. So for now I have to wait for how many updates, before I get a update that has a link to a search page for the new Firefox for Android Extensions. Then I can search for my favorite extensions and find out if they say they are compatible with this version, then I have to test them! you guys are really being slow about this!

I set the colors of visited links and unvisited links in [Options]-[General]-[Language and Appearance]-[Color].

If you want to take effect, you need to select [All] in [Use the color you selected above to overwrite the color specified on the page]

In this way, all styles of all website pages: text color and background color are all changed.

Is there a way to only change the color of the link, while the text and background colors still use the web page's own; or specify that only the domain name pages in the list list use the specified color, and the website's own default color is used for those that are not explicitly specified?

while i'm here i'll take the opportunity to say how much i hate the new firefox. it was perfectly fine the way it was. the old firefox doesn't work now but ignoring that it was an excellent browser. now look at what they've done to it. never mind the privacy stuff. everything's all hidden away under multiple clicks, stuff you used to be able to do in a click now has to be done manually. why have they done all this? who is it benefitting? it's not even faster like they're advertising it as. i only finally installed this because the old one's finally kicked it. i want the old one back. where are all the add ons? one i used to use that was totally indispensible doesn't work on this one. and where's about:config?

It's bad enough that "google" has it's fingers in everything as it is without "upgrades" I don't want and didn't ask for, and have done nothing to make things work any better.

I am using TB 78.7.1 (64-bit) on Windows 10 to upload messages from a local folder to a Gmail folder via IMAP. I copy-drag 700+ messages, but only a dozen or so get copied each time before the process aborts. A windows pops up saying "Thunderbird: Connection to server imap.gmail.com timed out". Before the abortion, the TB status line will sometimes say "User.Name@gmail.com: Sending login information..."

It will take forever to copy messages this way, and some messages don't seem to make it to the destination.

I enabled TB logging using the environment variable settings at: https://www.mailenable.com/kb/content/article.asp?ID=ME020591

Since I am using Cygwin's bash, I do the following:

   NSPR_LOG_MODULES=IMAP:4 \
   NSPR_LOG_FILE="$(cygpath -am ~/tmp/TBirdLog)" \
   cygstart thunderbird

This creates a file ~/tmp/TBirdLog.moz_log, whose final lines are ("FamBig" is the name of both the local and destination folder):

Hi,

After reading on the new update with Firefox 86, it seems that you have made some really good changes on the way cookies are handled forcing each site to keep their cookie separate from everyone else.

So is the Is the multi account containers still useful in Firefox 86 if what I'm using them for is to keep from being tracked?

It seems that they would be useful if I wanted to open several different Gmail accounts at the same time from within their respective folders.

Thank you for your help.
