My copy of Tbird creates multiple entries in all of the folders. The worst is sent mail where the first duplicate is a 2020/08 message and the oldest 2013/07 has 32 copies. Other folders aren't as bad but still have up to 6 copies of the oldest messages. Is there some way to re-index these tables? I'm concerned that one day it will just corrupt completely and I'll lose it all.

Starting about a week ago, Firefox has had periods where it would freeze for about 5 seconds, followed by working normally for about 10 seconds. In between cycles of freezing, there would also be periods where it functioned normally. The freezing doesn't seem to be triggered by anything specific. It happens when I'm scrolling, typing, or even sometimes when I'm doing nothing at all on a page. This also happens whether or not I have other programs open that could be slowing things down. According to task manager, I have plenty of spare CPU and RAM when it happens. I've tried turning off hardware acceleration, recreating the places file, and checking session restore as per this help article. It has also happened after restarting Firefox, so it shouldn't be a problem with that.

I upgraded to TBird 78 a few days back (as of today, it has already morphed into 78.9.1), and for the past few days I am unable to connect to my provider's POP email server via my email client, although can see my email on the webmail interface. I have already consulted the discussion here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/thunderbird-78-faq#w_after-upgrading-to-thunderbird-78-i-cannot-receive-or-send-email-messages Yesterday I called my provider, who told me they don't use TLS at all, but handle security in-house in some other way. A techie and I tried various configurations (also changing to IMAP) in an attempt to get by whatever is blocking my access, but nothing worked. He said that the proper remedy for this kind of problem is for TBird to issue what he called a "patch" that would fix the issue, but that we had to wait for TBird to figure this out and do it. Today I tried the remedy of reverting to lower TLS security anyway, but this didn't help either. The only other options I can think of are (1) reinstalling an older version of TBird and refusing any further updates, and (2) switching to some other email client. I don't like either option very much. Does anyone have any suggestions what else I might do? HWA

I use firefox bookmarks to store my biomedical research data which over the last 12 years has grown to a large size with places.sqlite around 60 Mb and bookmarks.html about 75 Mb.

Sometime ago the bookmarks.html file suddenly almost doubled in size to some 130 Mb (I automatically back up/export my bookmarks as a bookmarks.html file) and places.sqlite to some 70 Mb. Unfortunately I only discovered the issue sometime after it happened.

According to Places Maintenance, which I run relatively frequently, the bookmarks data base comprises:

Table moz_places has 77666 records Table moz_bookmarks has 230886 records

The bloated bookmarks.html file is needlessly taking up a lot of backup space . I can only assume that somehow one of the very large files was inadvertently copied into some other folder. Given the vast number of folders/subfolders it is a virtually impossible task to open each one to find where such a large file has been put to cause such bloat. Unfortunately when I open the bookmarks.html file there is no folder structure visible so it is not possible to sort folders by size which would greatly help to find the offending folder.

Although I am quite useful at finding my way around browser technology I have no sqlite database skill. I have looked at the places.sqlite using DB Bowser for Sqlite and SqliteManager extension in the hope that I could figure out whether it is possible to identify folders and hopefully sort them by size to find where the misplaced large folder is located. But no luck it is all greek to me.

I would be most grateful if anyone can offer suggestions/guidance on any possible way to identify folders and to sort them by size from places.sqlite or any other way (I have considered exporting the bookmarks from places.sqlite to xlsl into Excel but it does not seem to offer any way to search for/sort folders by size.

I am on Win10 Pro.

I believe everyone has a right to choose the browser and operating system they use. I choose to use Firefox because I care about my privacy, and because of features like multi-account containers - as a software developer these are non-negotiable. I choose to use Linux for similar reasons, and many Linux distributions come with Firefox preinstalled as a default browser. In light of recent changes to Google's data collection through Chrome, I am more than ever committed to using Firefox as my only browser.

However over the last year or so, I have noticed an increasing number of websites or features on websites have stopped working in Firefox on Linux, forcing me to use Chrome against my wishes. Examples include the entirety of the Australian government's MyGov website; the phone call feature in Slack; and Google Meet meetings (no audio). I know people who use Firefox on other operating systems and they have not had these problems, so I can only assume that the issue is specific to Firefox on Linux.

I am not trying to suggest that Mozilla is responsible for this in any way - if Google or Slack or the government refuse to support Firefox on Linux, that's their responsibility, not Mozilla's. However, I am not convinced that the lack of support is intentional, or that it isn't a quirk of the particular Linux distribution I use or the version of Firefox included in the package manager. Any advice would be appreciated.

My Firefox version is 84.0.1, and my Linux distribution is KDE Neon User Edition 5.21 which uses Ubuntu 20.04 under the hood.

The Add to home screen button is not showing up in firefox mobile v87.0.0-rc.1 (Build #2015799099).

For the purpouse of this ticket, I'll be using the example a2hs website at https://mdn.github.io/pwa-examples/a2hs/ https://mdn.github.io/pwa-examples/a2hs/.

When opening the website in Chrome mobile, it has the option to Install the PWA as an application (picture 1), but in firefox there is no such option (picture 2). Also, the official guide suggests that there should be a "home icon with a +", which is not the case for me (picture 3).

The firefox application has permission to add homescreen shortcuts in the system (picture 4).

When connecting to debug via USB, I can see the serviceworker is running and the manifest was recognized (picture 5).

I've also tried reinstalling the mobile browser and removing all addons, to no effect.

I'm running Android 10 on a Poco X3 using MIUI 12.0.7.

I don't know else I may be missing.

best, Roberto.

I just switched from a Mac computer to a PC. My Mac Mail has about 15 years of emails in various folders within folders. I use this for my business, so it's a lot of emails. I tried to import the mbox files into Thunderbird from the auto-generated mboxes in the Library folder on my Mac computer, but when I did that, I got a series of subfolders within subfolders within subfolders named by numbers, not my folder names.

So, I tried a different method. I clicked on a main folder in my actual Mac Mail that contained sub-folders and clicked "export" and made sure to save it with its subfolders. I used the "Import/Export Tools Ng" importer add-on to import the main folder into my Thunderbird mail. However, it only imports the mail that was in the main folder. It does not bring over the subfolders (mboxes) with their mail.

I know there are a ton of importer tools out there, but I can't tell which ones will import the subfolders with their emails. I downloaded and tested a few of them on their trial versions, but none of them did what I wanted to.

Any help is MUCH appreciated!
