Hi I am having intermittent email problems especially sending. It gives me a timed out message. It will often do it 5 times, and then send as normal. Then it might work perfectly the next 3 times. But then it starts timing out again.

Its been going on for weeks.

Same server, same settings, same programs, nothing different that I did.

I don't use any firewall except what is built into windows 10 and I have never actually seen it.  

Please explain like I am a 5 year old. I write stories and take pictures and do that reasonably well.

 I am a mechanic so I can swap the power supply fan in a desktop pc in minutes flat.

Software type problems though? Please speak very slow and very clearly.

thanks scott

Hello folks,

I'm looking to upgrade my FF browser as much as possible, but I need to run Mac OS X 10.9.5 (for legacy software) on my older iMac.

Currently running "78.15.0esr (64-bit)" and the "About" window says "Firefox is up to date" and "You are currently running on the esr update channel" (Not sure what that means)

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

If I compose a message, click "Send" then decide I don't want to send the message and click "Cancel" at the password prompt; the message is sent anyway. This began happening about 6 weeks ago, I have tried everything I can think of; I can't think of anything I changed that would cause the problem. I've searched Thunderbird support and found nothing on the issue.

It is an issue because if someone else also uses your computer, they could send "Draft" messages without a password simply by clicking "Cancel" when prompted for a password. Generally nobody else uses my computer so that's not a problem for me; but on occasion I don't notice which account I'm in and will compose a message from one of my secondary accounts. In the past when this happened; there was no problem because I could hit cancel at the password prompt and the message would not send; but if I do that now, the message will send even though I canceled.

I have Firefox on my laptop (Win10 Pro) and on my Android phone; just bought a new office computer that is running Win11. My laptop has a long list of bookmarks and a dozen or more open tabs. I would like to get this same setup on the new computer. I thought I followed directions but since it does not work I guess I have missed something important.

Go to the menu in upper right, then the > next to my account, which brings up Manage Account, Syncing, several other items, then a list of tabs on my phone, another list of tabs on my laptop, and a third list of tabs on an old computer that no longer exists. It has been syncing for 2-3 hours without evident progress. I would like to delete the dead computer to avoid confusion but see no way to do it. Mainly I want to sync with the laptop or, failing that, import the bookmarks from it.

I also copied the FF profile from the old computer into the new one. The files and directory structures are identical but FF cannot read the profile. I do not know what to do about any of this.

Hello. My pinned tabs keep disappearing - I now understand what is causing this, but I'm wondering if there is a workaround? I'd really like for my pinned tabs to show on any/every new Firefox window.

ISSUE: If I have more than one Firefox window open, and at some point during the day I close them in the wrong order, I lose all of my pinned tabs, permanently.

As an aside ... just in case the devs are reading: this seems like a very bizarre choice for default behaviour; why make it so incredibly easy for a user to unwittingly lose potentially dozens of pinned links? It's also not very obvious why it happens and have seen numerous people struggling with this issue. However, I appreciate that's how it is, so I'm simply hoping there's a solution :)

Before anyone says: 'just use tabs instead', I normally do, however, for reasons I won't go into (related to a very popular 3rd party plugin) some things open in a new window by default - there is no option to open them in a new tab, so I regularly end up with more than one Firefox window, and it would be nice to know that one false move doesn't decimate all the pinned tabs I've made.

Frankly, I find this very confusing, so not sure what is going on.

To connect to the server at work in order to perform over the phone interviews, I need two tabs open in Firefox. The first is for a software dialer called Softphone, and the second tab accesses web based interview software called Confirmit CATI.

Attempting to log into the dialer from CATI results in "Incorrect Extension" errors even though the extension number is correct.

What I discovered today purely by chance, is that in the menu on the top left of the Firefox browser, when I have the above setup activated, there appears a new additional menu option called "Tabs sharing devices", and if I click on this, a "Microphone" labeled drop-down displays, then if I click on that, a further option is displayed regarding Permissions for the Softdial app to use my headset microphone with a "Use the microphone - Allowed" dialogue box where you can enable or disable permission for the Softdialer to use my headset microphone.

What is strange is that if I open this above described microphone permissions dialogue box without changing any settings, I am able to log into my work server successfully (?)

This seems like some sort of glitch or bug which is preventing a clean connection to my workplace.

I would be very grateful if some one could advise me as to what I can do to fix this, or is it some sort of software bug that needs to be fixed by Mozilla or Microsoft. It's driving me nuts.

If you need any more information, please let me know.

Thanks in advance for any helpful advice regarding this problem.

FireFox has been my default browser for many years and it has been great, no problems. Within the past three months, however, I've been unable to access financial sites that I regularly use. The first was in October when one site upgraded its account access security. Initially, FireFox worked after the upgrade, but then I could no longer log into my account. I spoke to support staff for that website and they said they've been receiving complaints from other clients who use FireFox and suggested I use another browser, which I did and was able to access my account. Today another financial site suddenly blocked access using FireFox with a message that I needed to unblock cookies for the site, so I went into FireFox security settings and added the site's address to the exceptions list, but still could not enter the site. I am having no problems logging onto these sites with another browser, but FireFox is not working. Any suggestions? I would like to keep FireFox as my default browser, if that's possible. Thanks!

I am seeing odd behavior recently after upgrading to 91.5.0

I will have my inbox open, I will click on a message subject, hold the CTRL key down and click on one or two other messages till they are all selected - then, holding the mouse button down, I will drag those messages over to the left hand pane and drop them into another mailbox folder. I have been doing this for decades.

Suddenly, when I move my mouse, with the highlighted message(s) 'attached' - to a mailbox folder, the mailbox folder opens immediately and I lose my selected messages and cannot drop them into the folder

It doesn't happen on every drop - but enough that what should have taken me 2-3 minutes this morning to clean out a weekend's worth of inbox has now taken me 10-15 minutes because I'm so frustrated at having to try 3-4 times to drop messages into a folder!

Is there some new configuration that I need to set to *not* open the folders just because I'm hovering over them with the mouse button held down?
