I'm not sure what is causing this, but it started at least a few months ago. I will be using firefox, and anywhere between a few minutes, or a few days, it will suddenly stop loading anything and I will have to completely quit it and restart it to get anything working again. No, it is not the HTTP3 problem; that was the first thing I tried. I've also uninstalled, and reinstalled the entire program, clearing all settings, etc. I am on windows. Generally good on firefox updates, will check and update usually every week or two.

Funny thing is, I also installed firefox nightly and that does not have this problem (although I have not used it as extensively as I normally do when browsing, so maybe I didn't hit whatever triggers this issue). It also works properly on other computers (as far as I'm aware). So I still think something is corrupt or wrong with my normal firefox program. I just don't know what or how.

I have configured an O365 account in Thunderbird(v102), macOS using the OWL Plugin, and want to download all the messages(along with attachments) on the server. The common answer I found on the forums is to go to the "Account Settings" > "Sync & Storage" section for the account you want to download all messages.

I can see this option for my Gmail ID, but not for my Office 365 ID!

It certainly has not downloaded all the emails, evident by my Profile Folder's storage utilization. Is there any way to download all of those emails, locally!! I have tried : - Going offline > Then selecting download everything before going offline. - Selecting "Don't delete any messages" under "Local Folders"

Installed TB 102.0 (64bit). Trying to search for addons inside Thunderbird, from Addons TB tab (e.g. for Bidi add-on, which is presently not compatible with TB 102.0: https://addons.thunderbird.net/en-US/thunderbird/search/?q=bidi&appver=102.0&platform=WINNT). Instead Thunderbird gives the following message: "Secure connection failed. The page you are trying to view can not be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified." with invitation to "Try again". No success. Running Win 10 21H1 (64bit OS), and have Avast AV (22.5.6015 (build 22.5.7263.730)), where Thunderbird is an approved App. I believe the very first time I tried to search for addons, TB 102 actually opened the addons search page, but the second time and all subsequent times it is giving the Secure Connection Failed error. Any suggestions for the cause? Thankyou in advance.

It seems that there was an internal page for permissions, namely about:permissions. As I was trying to find an answer to my question, I found many volunteers at Mozilla Support would talk about this, but what I'm asking for is different. I'm looking for a way to list websites per permission, that is, when I want to disable a permission for a bunch of websites at once, I specify the permission and remove the websites I do not want to have that permission. In one of the questions on the site, an extension called SQLite Manager was mentioned and seemed to be the solution. This extension, though, doesn't exist anymore. If what I'm looking for can be done through this extension, I'd like to know if there is an alternative. If it doesn't serve the purpose that I am talking about, I'd be happy to know if there is a different workaround.

The title pretty much describes the problem. Whenever I open a website that plays videos on some page in it automatically, Firefox blocks autoplay only the first time the website is opened. If I navigate through the website to another page that contains videos which the site autoplay as well, Firefox doesn't block the video from being played automatically.

I am unable to load / start the 360 viewer in Facebook. I see the 360 animation-logo play, but when i press on it nothing happens. Works fine in edge - you press on the logo and it shows the 360 photo.

This issue is for all 360 videos. Also i am not able to write reviews in google maps, same thing. You can press the button as many times as you like and nothing happens. Any idea? disabling ad-block plus didn´t help. Clearing cache (all time / everything) etc didn´t help. Troubleshooting-Mode didn´t help.

Any suggestions?

I've checked a couple of the "similar topics" before posting here. I'm not sure if I am having the same problem or something else.

Back Story: I have a "few" windows and tabs open in FireFox. I would finish what I was doing, shut down and then the next time I booted up and loaded FireFox, all sessions would be restored and all log ins honoured (kept). That is: I was still logged in.

(Moving to now) Yesterday I powered up and ALL sites were logged out. About 20 log ins were needed. Hmmmmm... gmail, and the rest.

"Ok... something happened. No problems, things should be ok from now. I've logged in, so all is sweet."

Today I power up: All logs ins lost. Had to go through it all again.

Gmail is throwing security alerts at me hand over fist. Yeah, that is good in some ways. I get that part. But I've logged in.

Seems - my thoughts - that the cookies aren't being saved. But why? I haven't touched them or their settings.

Yes, I did do a clean out of older cookies. But left the gmail ones, and other sites I know I use. I have `adblocker ultimate` installed.

Now I am logged in, if I open the `cookies` and look I should see them there for the sites to which I am logged in - yes?


To be clear: When I am done, I do NOT `exit` FireFox. All windows, tabs, sessions are left. I just shut down the machine. Then next time I load FireFox and they are re-loaded and log ins are maintained.

I started having problems immediately after upgrading to Thunderbird 102.0 (32-bit) on Windows 7. I suspect some of the settings from the previous installation were not transferred correctly to the new version.

First, I couldn't even get into my email server, getting the error "Server does not support the selected authentication method." After changing some of the server settings, I was able to get into my email.

Then, a couple of my message filters started throwing an error "The message could not be filtered to folder ... because adding a message to it failed. Verify that the folder is displaying properly or try to repair it from the folder properties." I repaired the folder, and then the filter seemed to work.

Now, every message going through any filter appears to be failing with this message. Literally hundreds of messages are not getting filtered and are throwing this message (I get 200 to 400 messages daily).

Is there any way to back out of Thunderbird 102.0 and repair my entire saved messages file? HELP!!!

My installation of 32-bit Firefox 102 had been repeatedly crashing, sometimes for no apparent reason. I decided to download the 64-bit version of Firefox 102, uninstalled the 32-bit version, carried out a standard installed and all this appeared successful. I noticed that I was getting a lot of advertisements and remembered that I had had Ghostery installed as an extension in my 32-bit Firefox. I went to the extensions page, selected Ghostery and asked for it to be added. Shortly after that, I got a message that the installation had been aborted because the extension might be corrupt. I tried again and got the same message. I tried another ad blocker, and got the same message with that one; and tried a third with the same result. What is going on? I haven't changed any settings in Firefox since the standard installation, and the extensions were from the Firefox source, so how can the extensions be corrupt? If it isn't corrupt, why isn't Firefox installing it?

Hello.

I am running an x86 Ubuntu machine. I have noticed that Thunderbird gets stuck at the login attempt when checking email after the machine is brought up from sleep.

Killing Thunderbird, waiting some time as well as entering debug mode and disabling all add-ons cures the issue untill the next sleep.

What do you need to fix this behaviour?
