I think I have a bug to report:

When I browse a website with an embedded PDF viewer (must be a Firefox default viewer because I haven't installed any other plug-ins), a notification bar on top of the website (right under the bookmark bar) pops up saying (translated from German): [Icon: ?] The PDF-document is not displayed correctly. [Button: "view with other app"] [Button: "x" for closing the bar].

The PDF viewer works, so the error seems unneccessary, but what really bothers me is that the bar can't be closed. Clicking the X-button on the very right doesn't work - the bar frozen until I restart the browser or close the tab. This problem exists already since summer, so at least for 2 or more updates.

These are the issues which I have:

- I close Thunderbird with many tabs open. When I reopen Thunderbird all the tabs are closed except for the Inbox. Previously the tabs remained open but since recently that is not the case.

- In my Inbox all e-mails from before 16-Nov-2020 are blank I can see the Subject, who they are from and their date and time. But when I highlight them they appear to be from the last legible sender, the title is shown from the last legible sender and their contents are blank. How can I restore them?

Not long ago I installed Malwarebytes. Since I had these problems I uninstalled this application. Yet the problems have not been resolved. What can I do about them? Thank you.

I recently upgraded from the 68 version to 78.5.0 and have noticed some serious issues on one of my IMAP accounts. TB is showing a message subject yet when I click on it I see another message any replies to that message plus the message which actually corresponds to the message subject.

In both cases one of the emails involved a certain subject ("A") from sender1. In the first case I saw the body of another message ("B") from sender2 and my replies to sender2 followed by the message body from subject ("A").

In the second case I clicked on a subject header ("C") from sender3 to find the body of a message for subject ("A") from sender1 then I saw the body corresponding to subject ("C") from sender3.

Hello,

I have been having weird problems with my Firefox since I tried getting back to using it. I have reset everything before using it again. I changed the language back to English but the hamburger icon list is in Japanese. A minor issue but I can manage.

But this one is really annoying. I click on a link and it closes it down for me in 1 second. Here's a short clip of what I'm referring to.

In the past few weeks I have been unable to login to my att.net account on Thunderbird, even when I re-enter the password. I can get to my gmail accounts without a problem. The att.net account has the bulk of my emails. I attempted to repair the inbox but now cannot see the messages. I also cleared the cache. Prior to being totally unable to receive or send emails from this account, I often had to "retry" when login failed. Now that no longer works and I simply cannot access the att.net (Yahoo) account in Thunderbird but have to do everything in my browser.

My email client has silently stopped downloading emails (after 19th July). This was around the time I upgraded to v.78.0.1 I have 5 email accounts, all with a POP3 setup. Sending emails works. Retrieving emails silently fails.

Testing (IMAP) on Windows 10:

  • Thunderbird 78.0.1:
  Manual configuration 
  Error message said the user name or password was wrong.
  • Thunderbird 68.11.0:
The manual configuration worked fine, and was able to receive emails.

As my machine upgraded, I can not revert to an older version, and I do not wish to lose many years of emails.

How can I either: 1. Restore the old version. 2. Fix the email downloads.

Hi,

I recently downloaded and installed some Android emulator named "Andy". Unfortunately, the .exe also installed all kinds of other Software on my Windows 7 system.

I removed most of the unwanted Software but one problem remained: A search result hijacker was part of the package. It replaces the top 4 results with some cryptic redirect links that are luckily displayed in a different font, otherwise I wouldn't have noticed at all.

I tracked the issue down to a addon in Firefox (see attached screenshot) that I cannot remove, no matter what I try.

What I tried to remove it: - I tried to remove the addon via about:config - I tried to run Firefox in safe mode and uninstall it - I tried to factory reset Firefox - I Installed Avira and made a system scan - I installed MalwareBytes and made a system scan - I check all the extension folders for addons that I do not know but can't find anything - I checked my whole system for any xpi-files but couldn't find any.

I am out of ideas. I can disable the addon but thats about it. After a while Firefox will shut itself down and the next time I start it, the addon is on again. When I resinstall FIrefox, the same thing happens. The addon is always back.

When I inspect the element it loads some invisible icon file that is supposedly located in "src="jar:file:///C:/Windows/Installer/%7BB28AF4A4-C997-4A5B-A111-FD1E65138A8D%7D/%7B02E337C0-4D70-452D-AA64-92D0A8C5D953%7D.xpi!/icon48.png"", if that helps. But the location doesn't exist on my system.

Can anyone here help me? I alread sent a problem report via the official tool.

Sincerely Florian

This is basically a copy of what I put in the Ubuntu forum. The problem is the same, no matter where I post it.

Originally I was using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.

I thought it would be good to update to GG (20.10) though I did briefly try FF (20.04).

As the install was done on an existing 18.04 version things remained the same for programs, book marks, etc.

Ok, now the crunch: I USE Firefox ""A LOT"". When it loads, there are...... 8 x 6 windows of FireFox and each of those have anywhere from one to ""THIRTY"" tabs loading.

Believe me: ""It worked!!""

I could use it, also run other tasks as well - though a VM was pushing it with the RAM. But the entire machine worked.

Now, I am lucky if FireFox loads at all. Let alone let me browse.

When it loads some of the window's tops are flashing. A screen shot does not really show this. (I tried)

All that has changed is the O/S from 18.04 and Firefox from (what ever it was) to 83.0

I don't want this to be a finger pointing exercise between Mozilla and Ubuntu. I would prefer it is helpful to all.

What have I tried? I've tried starting FireFox with all addons disabled. Still happens.

I am going to try to remember to (next time) launch FireFox from a Terminal and pipe the output to a file to look for things.

The machine I am using has shown it is well up to being able to have this running. I have had it working for a few years like this.

This post is (for now) to establish there is a problem. I will post more information when I get it, rather than waiting to get it then post, as I feel there are a lot of people who have very similar problems and I want it known: ""You are not alone!""


Now a bit of extra stuff.

Other things which are weird: When I am watching stuff - youtube for example - the playback is/WAS jerky. I hadn't touched anything in the settings.

After digging around, I discovered that I had to turn ""OFF"" the hardware acceleration for the graphics. Question: How did it get turned on? (Semi rhetorical)

I have a lot of local pages I open with passwords. When I load them the CPU load goes through the roof and nearly invariably the program just exits. No crash report.

Which is a good 50% of how it happens. The other 50% is the machine just locks up and I have to power it down.

I've recently noticed an issue with Firefox not loading some content for me. On one page it failed to load embedded videos, and when I contacted the site to alert them to the problem they troubleshooted and the issue seemed to be with my browser. A second time, when trying to use Instagram scheduler Planoly, I discovered that none of the images of my feed would display in the program, and again when I contacted support they could find no issue at their end.

I have followed advice and: - cleared my cache and cookies - disabled extensions one by one - scanned my machine for malware.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

I started having problems with YouTube recently and I think it is a Firefox issue.

I am running version 82.0.3 (64-bit) and when I log into YouTube, the Home page is not displaying all the content.

I have attached severl screenshots and you can see the problem as follows:

Image Sign In 1 shows the YouTube home page before signing in. Image Sign In 2 shows the YouTube home page after I have signed in using my Google account and you can see at the top right of the screen that my Google Account avatar (Darth) is showing. However, a lot of the content, e.g. Watch Later, Classics and My Subscriptions which are user related are all missing and if you compare this image to Image Sign In Chrome you can see that Chrome is showing everything and works correctly.

I tried this on Edge as well and it works all okay, the same as Chrome, so that is why I think there is an issue with Firefox.

Also, on the left side in the middle in Image Sign In 1 and Image Sign In 2 you can see a blue Sign In box with the words "Sign in to like videos, comment and subscribe." If you select this option you get an error which is in Image YouTube Sign In Error so I don't know if this is related to my problem but I thought it may help highlight what the problem is.

Any confirmation that it's a Firefox issue or any solutions to what is causing it would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi I'm running Thunderbird 78.1.1 in Win10 v2004.

Today, the Unified Inbox has stopped displaying emails from the inboxes of all accounts. Further, when you click on (Unified) Inbox, as your mouse hovers over items in the incomplete list, all text disappears. When clicking on an item, it does not show-up in the reading pane.

Yesterday, I did move the location of local folders, but this went smoothly and all emails are visible. Thunderbird was working fine. No updates had been installed overnight, but since the issue occurred, I have updated windows from 1906 (I think) to 2004. But this has not solved the issue.

Reading past posts from 2015, there seems to be a way of deleting folders form the profile folder to force Thunderbird to recreate the unified folders, but the guidelines were out of date.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

I have carried out all the recommended procedures including cookies, cache, etc and restarted Firefox with all Add-ons disabled and it still does not help with this problem.

I have used Yahoo for years and never had this problem and I have tried using Edge and Chrome and everything works as it should so it is definitely a Firefox issue.

So any suggestions on how to fix this would be appreciated.

I've been using Thunderbird for quite a while, no real problems. My machine runs Windows 10.

Last night I used it, no issues. Went to bed.

Woke up this morning, loaded it up and now it's stuck on the bottom left of the application window:

nameofemailaccount@gmail.com: Connected to pop.gmail.com...

I double click on that line which brings up the Activity Manager pop up, and it's blank.

I've checked windows update, installed the most recent updates. Rebooted the computer. I still have the same issue. No emails are being downloaded locally.

I've logged into GMail's web interface and I can see emails there waiting in my inbox to be downloaded.

I've also tried sending out a test email and it gets sent out with no issues.

What should I attempt next? Would appreciate some advice.
