Hello,

I am trying to remove a profile from Firefox and this message is above the profile I want to delete.

This profile is in use in another application and it cannot be deleted.

I have searched the Mozilla support site and can't figure out what application is using that profile.

I'm using: Macbook Pro Mac OS Sonoma 14.0 Firefox v 126.0 (64-bit)

Please help! Thank you! Jordan

Since Thunderbird was upgraded to 115.10.1 (64-bit), it now fails to send SMTP messages with the following error.

Sending of the message failed. The message could not be sent because the connection to Outgoing server (SMTP) ***.mail.pairserver.com was lost in the middle of the transaction. Try again.

This affects all six(6) accounts in Thunderbird, all of them can receive and edit e-mail messages; however, all of them fail to send e-mail messages.

Prior versions of Thunderbird have worked with this configuration for many years.

Other e-mail clients such as Evolution do not have this issue and I have confirmed with my provider that Thunderbird is no longer sending e-mails.

Any thoughts on how to roll back Thunderbird until this issue is resolved?

For a very long time I have been using Afterpay successfully through Firefox. Since the last update of Firefox a few days ago, Afterpay has been failing to complete transactions. This has occurred on 3 different sites. I contacted Afterpay and it appears everything is fine on their side. This morning, after another failure, I tried the same transaction through Chrome and it was successful. Paypal still works with Firefox without a problem but it seems there is a transaction glitch between Afterpay and this updated version of Firefox.

I'm having problems with the Cardbook add-on but it is up to date based on my version of TB. When I go into Preferences->Advanced-> Update 'Check for Updates' shows I'm up to date. However, when I check archived versions it looks like the last version that worked with a MAC release of less than 10.12 is 78.14.0.

I'm confused if I can upgrade to 78.14 and how I would do it?

Thanks for any advice

P.S. and yes, it's a very old Macbook from 2009.

TB won't set up on Yahoo mail. Spent about 3 hours on the phone with one and sometimes two Yahoo techs and giving them total access to my computer so they could set up TB but could not get it working. It was eventually suggested I contact you folks, so here I am. When sending an email, it just keeps running like it's sending but doesn't stop. Eventually displays the following:

Sending of the message failed. Unable to authenticate to Outgoing server (SMTP) smtp.mail.yahoo.com. Please check the password and verify the 'Authentication method' in 'Account Settings | Outgoing server (SMTP)'.

The techs and I went around an endless loop of re-entering PW and checking authentication settings. Any suggestions?

Earlier I tried to open firefox to go on the net and Bing came up. I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled and the same happened. Then I deleted the Firefox folder fron the hard drive and then reinstalled Firefox again. This time it opened correctly. I can only assume but don't know, the Bing thing came about through one on the windows 11 updates. How can I stop this from re-occuring or can I? I only ever use Firefox, its just the best, thank you.

PS: I did have Firefox as my default browser but Firefox still became Bing. Lis

I updated Thunderbird to version 115.11.0 (64-bit), in the old version that I had when I clicked on an email with threads in a closed state, I could see in the email display box the initial text of each email in the thread with the sender's information and more, in the new version I don't see anything, the display box remains blank. Is this a bug, or do I need to change it in the setting?

I've used Thunderbird for many years and occasionally a message I've sent takes ages being saved, then finally it isn't. This has become more frequent recently together with having to re-enter my email password. I use Ubuntu (22.04.4 LTS) so I don't use anti-virus software and I don't use other email clients (only Thunderbird 115.10.1 64 bit).

I sometimes briefly lose my internet connection, though seemingly not when the email malfunctions, so could my old BT hub be the source of the problems? In the absence of any other solution maybe it's time to get a Chromebook and see if that's any better with Thunderbird. Firefox also now freezes a couple of times a week (and not being an IT wizard I hate not knowing what incantations to type into the terminal when anything goes wrong.)

Firefox's website appearance settings include a setting to force a light theme, force a dark theme, or to have sites automatically adapt to the theme of the browser. I feel that's not exactly what I want. I don't want the browser's theme to have anything to do with themes of the sites I'm viewing, nor to force light or dark. I think I'd rather just use the site's default, or if not that, set a theme on the site itself. Is there any way for Firefox to just not meddle in a site's theming at all?

I kinda just don't want any connection between the theme of my operating system, the theme of my browser, or either of those and the theme of websites, and none to force a theme on any of the others. I'm not sure why that seems so desirable nowadays, but I don't want it.

Once you add a new account, you have to race to open up the settings and turn off the "Download all mails" setting that is hardwired as the default. Even after having done that, I am left with GB of copies of mail messages that I don't want to store on my local system.

How do I get rid of those local copies? Compacting doesn't seem to do it - there's no "Compact now" button in any case. I don't know what "when it will save over N MB in total" means, exactly. Save compared to what? Now 50% off!

Likewise, if I have Message Synchronizing (Keep messages in all folders etc) turned off, but Disk Space - Synchronize all messages locally regardless of age is still selected, is it going to download copies anyway or no?

If it will download anyway, or if it already did download, if I change the Synchronizing setting to "only the last 30 days" will it remove the older local copies? When?

The only "recover disk space" option deletes both local copies and originals on the remote server.

There really should be a "purge local copies" action available in the client. It may be that it is OK to go out to the OS and remove certain files myself, but maybe it won't be in the future. Every note that is about "Simply open a Terminal window..." describes specific files that don't quite match what I see here in May of 2024 on a Mac. But the tool itself knows what can be removed safely.

I just lost several hundred tabs on Firefox mobile right after it updated itself. The most recent tabs show only ten of those tabs, which were all opened and closed today and aren't part of what I need to restore.

How do I get my tabs back? I've seen no 'restore previous session' option. My laptop only shows the few I have open now. What do I do to restore them?
