Hi All- I am in charge of deploying Firefox ESR to my company and trying to get it to silently auto update on it's on with user interaction. We have policies in place (GPO) that prevent it at this point. I need some guidance on whether I should use just GPOs to manage this or should I go the route of the .cfg file? If someone has a step by step on how to best achieve this I would appreciate it. I am currently using the .msi installer.

Here is settings in an old .cfg file that I am testing with:

lockPref("app.update.mode", 1); lockPref("app.update.service.enabled", true); lockPref("extensions.update.enabled", false); lockPref("extensions.update.autoUpdateEnabled", false);

// Set default homepage - users can change // Requires a complex preference defaultPref("browser.startup.homepage","data:text/plain,browser.startup.homepage=http://workday");

// Don't ask to install the Flash plugin lockPref("plugins.notifyMissingFlash", false);

// Disable Search Engine automatic updates lockPref("browser.search.update", false);

//Disable telemetry lockPref("toolkit.telemetry.prompted", 2); lockPref("toolkit.telemetry.rejected", true); lockPref("toolkit.telemetry.enabled", false);

// Disable health reporter lockPref("datareporting.healthreport.service.enabled", false); lockPref("datareporting.healthreport.logging.consoleEnabled", false); lockPref("datareporting.healthreport.uploadEnabled", false);

// Disable all data upload (Telemetry and FHR) lockPref("datareporting.policy.dataSubmissionEnabled", false);

// Disable crash reporter lockPref("toolkit.crashreporter.enabled", false); Components.classes["@mozilla.org/toolkit/crash-reporter;1"].getService(Components.interfaces.nsICrashReporter).submitReports = false;

// Don't show WhatsNew on first run after every update pref("browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone","ignore");

// Don't show 'know your rights' on first run pref("browser.rights.3.shown", true);

hello,

I have created an pgp keypair in thunderbird and exported the private key, where I needed to enter a password. Without the password I was not able to import th key into another Thunderbird. But I was able to import the key in openkeychain (android app) without using the password. I am now able to use the improted key to sign and decrypt messages. I did think the key was encrypted with the password I had to choose when exporting the key, but clearly it is not. I don't understand why that is?

kind regards

Trying to open Firefox in Windows 10 is suddenly only showing a completely white screen (no title bar, closing X, etc) and can only be closed by right clicking on the start bar icon and selecting "Close Program"

Have tried everything to fix the problem so decided that I would have to use the Control Panel and completely remove/uninstall the program and then re-download and install new (was able to save the bookmarks in html format from the "c" drive.

When selecting the Uninstall option in the Control Panel, rather than uninstalling as with any other program, a dialogue box appears offering to repair/reinstall the program, but on clicking the accept option another dialogue box appears stating that Firefox must be closed first --- but it is closed and also proved to be closed through the Task Manager section.

The Firefox version is 100.0.2

How can I completely uninstall Firefox when no option will allow this to happen. I have even tried via the "CMD" command.

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated as I have been working on t his problem for three days without any success.

I feel like this would be a better approach to adblockinv on Firefox Focus. I love this browser but it's built-in adblocker will often block important elements by mistake, or leave out certain things. Ublock Origin is a very powerful and memory effecient adblocker already part of the main Android app. It's more intuitive to use, has lists which are constantly updated and it can block elements with an element picker. I'm suggesting for it to be used instead as I think it'd be a much better approach to adblocking on Firefox Focus. What do you think?

For IMAP servers, the default action of Thunderbird's shift-delete is to bypass Trash and mark the message as deleted on the server. Thunderbird then does not show messages that are marked as deleted. This is fine if you are only using Thunderbird because the emails don't appear in Trash and don't appear in the folder they were deleted from.

However, if you are using other mail clients eg Outlook Mobile, Samsung Email client, webmail, these mail clients do not seem to recognise the "marked as deleted" attribute (whatever that is) and they still show the email. So if I shift-delete a mail in Thunderbird these other clients still show the email plus I do not actually save any disk space.

In Thunderbird if I just delete an email (not shift-delete) then the mail is moved to Trash and is actually no longer in the original folder. It is not just marked as deleted from the original folder, it is actually gone. So these other mail clients, also can no longer see the mail.

How can I get Thunderbird to actually delete a mail when I use shift-delete instead of just marking it as deleted? I don't want to have to wait till I exit Thunderbird.

I have tried setting mail.imap.expunge_after_delete to true and mail.imap.expunge_option to 1 but these seem to have no effect

Operating System Ubuntu 20.04.4LTS on AMD® Ryzen 3 pro 3200g 64bit processor. Firefox Web Browser version 100.0.2 (64-bit)

The method I can reproduce sound distortion:

I have clear sound playback through both system HDMI speakers or if earphones are plugged in, verified using the Ubuntu Sound Output test left/right (without distortion)

Then if I open a normal Firefox window and listen to YouTube video for example I have no distortion, if I however open I private window, say to access training material on Microchip University site I suddenly have distorted playback.

Please advise why private window opened suddenly distorts my output sound. Sound suspicious.

When I restart my computer, I am logged out of all websites although I did not select settings such as "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed". This only happens with reboots and not on Suspend.

I saw two similar posts but the options look like they changed name since then: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1319622 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1289909

I tried to apply the solutions linked there, to no avail.

This behaviour only happens on my Garuda Linux and not on Pop-os. Thus I am not sure here is the right place to ask this question.

Another strange bug which may be related is the following: if I zoom in a page (say set it at 120 percents) then go to another tab and then come back to the page I zoomed in, the zoom is reset to 100 percents.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I'm using Thunderbird 91.9.1 on Ubuntu. I have other issues going on that make me decide to just reinstall the OS. I want to back up Thunderbird and I already know how to do so by copying the relevant profile folder in .thunderbird. However, I have been dealing with the Inbox "A unique identity matching the from address was not found" bug. For others looking for that error, it does seem to be a known bug, using Ctrl-o to open the email is a workaround. This does not affect any other folders. Using the Repair Folder option does not solve the issue.

So what I want to achieve is to export everything except the Inbox itself. What I'd like to know is the best way to achieve this.

Is it better to create a new profile after the reinstall and just copy everything except inbox and inbox.msf from the existing profile or to copy the entire old profile over, set the new install to use that old profile and then copy the inbox and inbox.msf files from the default profile created during the install?
