I have also gone through most of the tips and tricks offered via your online support library.

Any advice would be appreciated!

The release notes for version 91.2.1 include this NEW item:

Preference added to disable automatic pausing RSS feed updates after a fetch failure

But I can't find it... Looked into "Blogs & News Feeds" in the Account Settings and searched the Preferences. It's not in the feed subscriptions either.

Somebody knows where I could find it?

Hello,

I have a strange problem. Background: I have Thunderbird 91.2.1 on Mac OS 10.13.6 I have 11 different accounts configured in my TB.

Couple of days ago I had an issue with one of them. Migrating from 1 server to another one I needed to recover my mails - Old server not accessible anymore. After different tentative I finally managed to recover those mail. The main is I restored my profile from 17 Oct and the mail folder too. Once alright I put back the profile file from today. Not sure if this is coming from the profile file...

Now when I'm sending emails between accounts within TB (different domains like gmail, hotmail, private) I have one outgoing arrow on the mail on the receiver account.

I am adding 3 print screen for 3 accounts for email sent between them.

Thank you for your help

When I try to highlight a range of messages, Thunderbird crashes. For example, if I highlight an email, then click Shift, then click the end of the range of emails I want to highlight, Thunderbird used to highlight the entire range. With the update I received today (10/22/2021), though, as soon as I click on the last element of the range, Thunderbird crashes.

System: MSI B640 Tomahawk. I5 10600KU 32GB RAM

Video: MSI 3070 X3

System Drive: 250GB fast Samsung SSD, with 50% free.

System OS: W10Pro_x64 21H1, Defender, no Firewall, no extra AV. Firefox_93.0_x64

Network: TYPE: Dedicated FIBER LAN Provider: Telenet Account Type: FIBER_200 Plus +


Addons: Adblock + µblock FBPurity Block Sender New Tab Override Cookie Manager and Cookie quick Manager Auto-High-Quality for youtube Ant Downloader Video Downloadhelper Cute Save Button WebP Image Converter Translate Web Page

Additional Information: Open Pinned Tabs: In between 25 and 60, depending on my current activities.

Tried: Disabling each add-on until all were off. Safe Start. Nothing helps.

Understandings: 1) No browser is made to run up to 60 open tabs (possibly even more)!!! 2) I run a "plethora" (compared to most users) if add-ons; these also bring the use speed down. 3) Resource used: 2GB (with "mere 30 pages" open.

BUT: DESPITE that: I ALSO understand that, considering my system and Network Type, it should not even be problematic with 200 pages open at once. 2GB over 32GB of RAM? Not the slightest issue (and it often runs at 4GB RAM in use). My CPU never runs half high, even when I have like 60 pages open: Should not be an issue then either. My Video Card has plenty resource over as well when at highest for me usage." Again, it should be no issue. My Fiber Netware? Telenet BVBA, Mechelen Test results: Ping: 5ms Jitter: 2ms Download: 904.2 Mbps Upload: 038.3 Mbps Not the best, not the worst, but for simple browsing, more than, I would assume, plenty.

So, what gives, what is the issue? No extreme strain on the system, no background high-resource issues, sure: one or two add-ons in Firefox but these as well do not strain my system, no AV issues, no Firewall issues (I turned that off, I fail to get the need for one as a house-dog-tree user), yet slow performance. Also, while 30'ish tabs running, 2GB used of RAM? My my, what the hell do they do as Site Admins to have these amounts (and NO, I do not do porn, thank you.  :P I am well aware of other people having insane issues surfing porn, as I helped many of these folks)? Sure, Deviant is a larger one that is open, being a graphical site, but like Quora, FB, Hot- and G-Mail and similar, these ain't, so to get a 2GB usage is weird, I would assume. I said, assume: yes, I am not specifically an internet know-all, I know of networking as a former NOVEL Netware Supervisor under UNIX (also Spupervisor), but Networking in a company is not the same as internet.

So, what is going on, why is my browser so slow? Having turned of all and 1 page open it's lightning fast, but now ... So, it is the open tabs, and the add-ons, though when turned off, I see no real difference. Brings it to tabs. How come, it is this "heavy", even for my system, please?

Thank you. Xog.

I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 21.10 and lost access to my to google calendars. I was running the Google Calendar add on. This was asking me to log in to to my google account, this account has two factor authentication enabled. I have many attempts to try and complete the two step process. But all end in failure.

1. I enter my google username. 2. I enter my google password. 3. This brings up a greyed out screen with a rotating icon saying that two factor authentication is being attempted. This eventually times out with a generic error condition. 4. I then try one of the numerous alternative authentication methods. The ones a can use all end up at the same failure as follows. 5. The two step process completes and brings the permissions screen. 6. I select the permission I want - read write access. 7. This then fails with the error shown in the attached image.

I removed the add and tried the new method of adding calendars from the calendar screen. Thats failed in the same way.

All help gratefully received.

In Thunderbird 91.2, I am having an issue with how the calendar events work. Is there a way to bypass the new intermediate event window and go directly to the Edit window as was the case in Thunderbird 78? If not, can you consider this change in future updates? This is a useless window for me, for the way I use my calendar and it would be great to bypass this if at all possible.

Since the latest upgrade to version 91 the Calendar has become unusable. To start with, after the update my main Calendar has completely disappeared taking with it very important upcoming appointments. In addition to that if I create an event all the data entered does not appear in the relevant day in the calendar and it will also not allow me to import any future events from other calendars.

To put bluntly, as a calendar it is totally useless. Any suggestions please?

I recently came across a website listing adjustments to Firefox's about:config settings. These are supposedly done to help make the browser more secure. Modifications to browser.safebrowsing.phishing.enabled,and after, are what I'm most curious about - mostly since the name Google is attached.

Others: - dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled [copy and paste tracking] - network.http.sendRefererHeader [hyperlink tracking]

Website for reference: https://proprivacy.com/privacy-service/guides/firefox-privacy-security-guide

I understand a lot can change within a year, but before breaking something, I wanted to ask if changing any of the above settings, particularly those having to do with Google, will cause damage to the browser itself. -thx

However, I can play this "YouTube Video": [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qAJSYk5wMiA] I also tried another link in their website, this is the weather link: [https://www.wandtv.com/weather] it starts to play, but then stops and nothing ever plays.

Is it something that is gonna come back as before or I should change my query, or find a workaround? Thanks.

I do not have a local calendar as it does not sync with my Google calendar. So when I get an invite, I get the "No Writable Calendars" notification. So that I would have an online backup of all my emails, years ago I set up our mail server to copy all emails to a Gmail account. I go there to add the invite to my Google calendar associated with that email address. Has there been a solution so that I can select the calendar (not the local calendar, which I don't have) to add an invite?

First of this issue is atleast 4 years old. I found various different people having this problem. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1432644 It should be a P5 not a P3. This official Mozilla article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-trusted-websites-your-allow-list-firefox-focus Does NOT work.

I am trying to add an expection to tracking protection but there is no such option, as descriped at Bugzilla. In the adress bar i removed the tracking protection for a website. But it was NOT added to the exception list. I dont allow 3rd party cookies and auto delete cookies when closing Fox. I think that is the reason why it's not working, if this is the case it's a bug.

What i actually tried to do, using dark-theme from duckduckgo permanently. Because as right now, i must change the theme every single time i reopen Firefox. This is Bull**** honestly. Even when i add duckduckgo as an addon, it does not save the dark theme!
