I am using Firefox 122.0.1, Windows 11 with all latest updates. Recently my HP Laptop has been slow to respond. I rebooted and opened task manager. I started Firefox and it was using about 1500 MB of memory. I closed some tabs to try to recover some memory. However, Firefox kept taking more, more and more. After 15 minutes, it was at 10,000 MB and climbing, and my system was using 99% of memory. I don't believe Firefox did this in the past and this is clearly not working properly. Any ideas?

I have the problem that Firefox does not correctly recognize when I want to scroll up on a web page. This often causes me to accidentally refresh the page. Usually this should only happen when I'm already at the top of the website and then swipe down again and not in the middle of the website. I have even tried Firefox Nightly and Klar, but the issue occurs with every browser. Is there perhaps some trick or hidden setting that causes the browser to scroll reasonably again instead of constantly refreshing the website?

After transferring my email to a new computer with Windows 11, I encountered a printing error when trying to print a received message. When attempting to print a message that should fit on a single page, the email program prints many more pages, leaving about 80% of each page blank where the text should be. I have attached an example in the sent attachments where one printed page is turned into multiple printed pages. I've tried various methods such as changing the text encoding and scaling, but nothing seems to help. Please assist.

I am trying to permanently delete some empty folders in Trash. I was able to delete some of them, but four remain. If I push "Delete" nothing happens. It says at the bottom left of the screen "Deleted folder {Folder name}", but that's not true - the folder is still there. If I try to rename the folder I get the message "The folder could not be renamed. Perhaps the folder is being reparsed, or the new name is not a valid folder name." I've tried running in Troubleshooting mode, but that didn't help.

How can I permanently delete these folders?

Create it directly in Thunderbird, it's also impossible. In the case of this message to another sender who has Thunderbird 102.15.1, it opens without any problems, forward it to the recipient who has access to the 115.4.2 version, it already opens ten files and saves it to disk in a size that has ten files. Strange thing, it works, but it can't be like that. Please let me know what could be the solution to the problem.

Please see attached screeshot.

Worked fine yesterday I have never had this probem before. I do not believe there has been any updates since yesterday evening, when I last send a mail from this account via thunderbird.

I have several email account in my thunderbird with same provider (one.com) same settings (different email and password off course), and they work just fine.

I have tried everything on your list:

  • The problem suddenly started after updating to a new major version of Thunderbird?
  • Verify your SMTP outgoing email settings
  • Verify the correct SMTP Server is being used
  • Verify that your outgoing email is not being blocked
  • Verify that your mail server supports the minimum version of TLS
  • Delete SMTP Password
  • Reset SMTP Password

I Have also deleted and recreated the account in thunderbird - still same error messages. I have tried to sent messsagesfrom the web mail directly at the providers webintreface. From there mails are sent ok.


Text from the error messages also seen in the screenshot (In Danish):

"Afsendelse af meddelelsen mislykkedes. Der opstod en fejl under afsendelsen. Mailserveren svarede D11 Too many "From:" addresses (d1f656f5-aede-11ee-93b3-27feea414716). Kontrollér meddelelsen og prøv igen."

Would translate into (English):

"Sending the message failed. An error occurred during sending. The mail server responded D11 Too many "From:" addresses (d1f656f5-aede-11ee-93b3-27feea414716). Check the message and try again."

Hi. When Windows 11 was initially released, certain substantial feature of the Windows taskbar known from before was missing. I'm talking about 'Combine taskbar buttons and hide labels' and the option to set it to 'Never' (users tend to set it this way to always see the program icon along with it's label, not just the icon). At this moment, the feature has been available in widely released build of Windows 11 for months (Microsoft returned it after rewriting the taskbar code and after many complains), but it is not working correctly in conjunction with Firefox. When I close all windows and tabs of Firefox and restart the browser, only its icon is visible on the taskbar, not the label. Only when I open one more Firefox window, it starts to work as it should. Is it a known issue? Can we expect a fix to be made soon? Thanks.

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 6 (20XY005MGE) with Win11 Pro.

All of a sudden, Firefox does not play any sound. I notice that it does not show up in the volume mixer. I tried:

Youtube does not play sounds, the Spotify page notices that it cannot play sound (the spotify App for Windows works fine, though). News sites (tagesschau.de / video, deutschlandfunk.de / audio) play the video, but no sound.

I had the problem a few months ago already but I cannot recall the solution :(

Specifically digging into the Outlook error shows:

The last auto upgrade included a calendar function, which I switched off as I thought this was causing the problem. But now after all the messages have downloaded, I get the usual pop-up box in the bottom right of the screen telling me I have received x messages but it only half fades in and the whole PC jams. CTR-ALT-DEL does not work and I can't switch to a different window or even click on anything in the Thunderbird screen. The only thing that I can do is hard reboot the PC and switch off the router, which allows me to start up Thunderbird without anything downloading. I am using Windows 7 and Avast as my AV. Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

This problem started with an update a couple months ago. Each bar is about 4 pixels wide and appears only on the right, left, and bottom edges of the browser window. They persist when the window is full size or smaller, but disappear on f11. The bars are completely unresponsive. Clicking or resizing the window doesn't seem to work inside of them. Even though the top of the window has no visible bar, there is still an unresponsive region like the other three sides and approximately 4 pixels of empty space.

When it comes to color, the bars spend about 50 percent of the time as white and 50 percent as the same gray that Firefox's dark mode uses. I wasn't able to get a screenshot when the bars were gray, but I was able to screenshot the top right and left corners when the bars were white, which I have attached.

It appears as if there are buttons of some sort poking out on the top right and left corners. If I had to guess, the top right icon looks like the "x" button on a Windows 7 window, and the top left icon looks like the red dot in the uppermost corner of a macOS window. My machine has only ever run Windows 10, and Firefox is the only application that this problem occurs in.

Restarting, using troubleshooting mode, manually removing extensions and themes, messing around with compatibility settings, running as administrator, refreshing Firefox, and reinstalling Firefox have all been unsuccessful. It really is annoying to live with this bug.
