As the subject says. I can still search for the firefox app and open it that way or I can start it from the START page that comes up when I hit the windows key on the keyboard. But I am not allowed to drag and drop it onto the taskbar as it says it's already there. It's sorta there I guess because FF is open right now while I type this and this open tab is indicated on the taskbar. If I were to close the FF window there would be no FF logo on the taskbar.

Right clicking the firefox app in the start list that comes up when I left click on the windows icon in the lower left or hit the windows key on my keypad gives me options to unpin FF from the start page or unpin it from the taskbar. I don't want to do that.

I did something to mess this up and I can't fix it. I want the FF logo back on my taskbar so when I power up the machine I can click on the logo in the taskbar to get to the browser with all my previously open tabs back.

The latest Windows 10 a Lenovo yoga laptop if it matters.

Thanks

Hi all,

I installed the conversation add on. Didn't like it and removed it. I then flicked a few switches in the View menu (can't recall all the ones) including threaded view etc.

I then went to my inbox and it's got EVERY single email in my database showing there. It shows sent folder messages, other folder messages. Just SO many. It's crashing my system.

What setting can I change to stop this? I've restarted but it's taking forever to load as it tries to search the massive number of emails.

Any help would be great. I'm really falling behind in work.

Thanks so much

PREVIOUS QUESTION: "name redacted" 9/12/20, 8:12 AM

This seems fairly obvious but I can't find it anywhere. Mozilla VPN covers you no matter which browser you're using, correct? I use Firefox for most things but I still have to cast from Chrome and I want to make sure the VPN isn't Firefox-specific. Thanks! END PREVIOUS QUESTION.

Please confirm you have Mozilla VPN installed on your device. If so, Mozilla VPN offers device-level protection. The Mozilla VPN can help you confirm the settings you have. If you have an active subscription, contact the Mozilla VPN team directly: Log into your account at https://accounts.firefox.com, click manage next to Subscriptions, and click support.

Is anyone out there familiar with the "Mile Wide Back" addon? It allow you to go to the previous web site page or the next page with a left/right mouse click on the left page border. I'm hoping someone who knows it's history will have a workaround for a problem it has. Apparently, the developer is no longer available.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/milewideback-webext/?utm_content=addons-manager-reviews-link&utm_medium=firefox-browser&utm_source=firefox-browser

I've been using it for years. It was modified for quantum, but there is a problem. One of it's functions is to scroll thru tabs with a mouse wheel turn. I wouldn't want that feature even if it did work right, but it's broken.

One lone click of the mouse wheel on the left page border and it scrolls thru 6 tabs. Two clicks, 12+ tabs, etc. There's no option to disable that feature.

However, in it's pre-quantum version, there were about:config commands that could modify it's behavior.

I have another handy app, Volume2. You can set it up to change volume with a mouse wheel turn while touching the left border of any window. Up until recently, this feature superseded the Mile Wide Back function, but lately it stopped helping.

Since neither the apps have changed in over a year, I believe the change in behavior is due to Firefox 88,which was released around the same time this started happening.

I am running 78.10.0 on Ubuntu 20.04.4. Several months ago, I found that I had a beta version of Tbird and downgraded to 78. Because of the change in address book format between 78 and beta, the address book in 78 was blank. I found mab file from an older version of Tbird and decided that it was sufficient to use to build a new address book in sqlite. I got that done. (Don't remember the exact process, but it seemed to work.)

Now I can read the address book, I can send messages from the address book, but if I compose a message and start to type a recipient name in the TO: field, Tbird doesn't check the address book. Nor does it add addresses for outgoing mail to the Collected Addresses book. Both of those actions have been set up in Preferences. Anyone know how to fix this?

In the active profile, the abook files are abook.mab.bak, abook.sqlite, abook.sqlite-wal.

Hello,

Ever since I used 'Refresh' to solve a problem, I now have to sign into all my regular sites, like YouTube, FaceBook and especially Twitter, where I receive a warning every time I sign in. (See attachment).

To clarify: before the Refresh, I could just bring up these sites and be automatically signed in. My computer remembers the sign in names and passwords, but I still have to go through the process, and with Twitter, I'm getting these warnings, which has caused that site to ask for more info to verify my identity.

So: why am I coming up as a 'new user' every time I want to go to sites I've been going to for years?

Thank you,

John

I have created all the filters I need in my Thunderbird email account. When a new email comes in I don't know any are there when I look at my folders because none are highlighted. I have to manually click on each folder to see if there are any new emails in there. Usually there are and if I hadn't manually opened each and every one I wouldn't know they were there. How do you get a new email to show up in the corresponding folder it arrives in after being filtered? Anything that ISN'T filtered and shows up in my INBOX does show up and is highlighted.

Is it because the folders were imported from Outlook rather than being created in Thunderbird? This is the only reason I can think of.

I had a crash on firefox, I easily fix lost sessions, when I got updates or crash that lose my active session.

When I try to retrieve my sessions by copying recovery.baklz4 or recovery.jsonlz4 both of them does not work. When clicking on restore previous session, firefox rezzes a few seconds, and then the restore session tab stays blank.

I tried: https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html but the website does not succesfully recovers my firefox session and the tab just crashes, I did manage to convert it to a JSON file.

I did some work on the JSON file myself, through regex and jq tool. I extracted the urls from it. I scrapped my json to make it lighter (I think the problem is from the size of my session), I scrapped the "image", "scp", json objects, trimming the size of the file, it's size was divided by almost 20.

Is there a way to recreate a sane jsonzl4 file? I have the data.

What seems weird is that backups from a few weeks is only around 20MB and by adding a few tabs, it went from 20MB to 80-90MB it's freaking huge.

Is there a way to fix this? recreate a json file and then encrypt it to jsonzl4? What can I scrape safely from my session?

I have been trying to fix this for hours, please help!

I switched from Chrome to Firefox recently, but am unable to sign in to my Firefox Account (whilst using Firefox). I'm on 88.0 (64-bit) on the latest public release of macOS.

Whether I try to sign into Firefox Sync using Firfox's menu or Preferences screen, or try to load accounts.firefox.com — just nothing happens: in the browser, the Sign In button doesn't do anything, and trying to load the URL I just get a blank screen. If I go to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/fxa/authenticate, and click the 'Continue with Firefox Accounts' button, again - nothing happens.

I've rebooted my machine, disabled my VPN, and disabled any add-ons which might conflict. I'm posting this question having signed in via Safari, so I know my account works and my network connection is okay.

I couldn't find any Help articles. Does anyone have some suggestions I could try please
