I get 2-4 emails per day from construction "estimating services", probably because I previously owned a contracting company, which no longer exists. They appear to be from mail-in-a-box. How do I stop these? Is it safe to go to mail-in-a-box website to request stop, or will that merely incur more emails?

Thunderbird loops on some internal discrepancy while not really fetching incoming messages or just a random-ish subset.

I initially thought it was a problem of me having way too much mail in local mailboxes, but it appears that it happens on low volumes as well.

I run Thunderbird on OpenBSD/amd64 (recent snapshots) under xfce. My wife (the lower volume user) runs Thunderbird on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS.

The problem is, Thunderbird is "processing" for days on end, fetching (via pop3) what appears to be only a subset of messages (sometimes only a single one, over and over) from the mail server.

I have been observing this behavior for years, but always put it down to me running -current and only achieving a not frequently coredumping Thunderbird after cranking up stacksize in /etc/login.conf. Now it turns out that this is not OpenBSD or -current specific.

It turns out that the lower volume user, on Ubuntu Linux, is now seeing the same behavior, with the odd result that a message that was sent to us both last Monday evening (today is Thursday) has not yet been fetched by her Thunderbird while the program keeps fetching over and over a message from the local newspaper sent and previously received in April of last year.

The problem looks to be somewhat related to fetching large-ish numbers of messages. My last attempt here had Thunderbird report it downloaded 6 of 709 messages, it then proceeded to move some of them from Inbox to another folder according to a filter, and after some tens of seconds the bottom of the window displays "Downloading message 9 of 702", seemingly stuck there.

Then again, the accumulation of unfetched messages is in large part due to Thunderbird only seeing to itself for hours and days on end while messages keep turning up on the mail server.

Please let us know any debugging steps that can be taken at our end in order to fix this.

I received 3 mails tonight that said:

Search results for your [edited from public] @frii.com account have detected that your email may have been exposed. We recommend you act now to resolve this breach.

I am checking to see if these 3 emails are legitimately from Firefox and if this has occurred, how do I act to resolve this breach??

And how do I check the status without clicking on the link in the 3 emails - or is it safe to click on the links to find out more information about the possible data breaches??

Thank you [email removed from public]

Hi! I have a problem with Thunderbird where it very frequently scrambles subsequent messages in a folder, so that when I click on an email I see the headers and/or content of another email either in addition or instead of the actual contents of the mail I clicked on.

Repair Folder fixes this. But at this point I'm using Repair Folder on a weekly basis.

I'd prefer if Thunderbird could keep things straight, so what do I do to, ahem, enable that feature. :)

This is a very recent issue for me. A couple of days ago "tel:" links stopped functioning. I click on a callable link and nothing happens. I checked default applications, and tel: isn't even listed there. The first time it happened there was a dialogue box asking me what application to use, but after that nothing opened at all. I build and monitor websites, so I'm constantly checking these links for functionality.

I upgraded to 108.01 three days ago. It crashed 3 times in the next two days, accompanied by that popup you get informing you of the crash.

For years I've been using the extraction method of the executable to create a Firefox portable application. Upgrading only involves the install folder. The profile remains untouched, unaltered.

I had an incident of profile corruption a couple months ago, with basically Firefox launching with most features not working, i.e. toolbar buttons, toolbar menus, etc. Yesterday, for a short time, aside from two crashes, I had a similar experience with the buttons, but not quite the same. My default built in Firefox buttons worked, but my extension buttons didn't. I also noticed on a page that I regularly visit, Ublock origin wasn't doing it's regular job of blocking, and the Ublock button was non-responsive.

I'm also in the process of using the Brave Browser for the first time. The reason I'm posting this here about this subject, including a Brave experience, is that at the same time I was experiencing the Firefox erratic behavior, Brave was crashing as well; freezing; tabs not loading.

Considering the Brave tabs not loading, and the temporary Firefox Ublock origin failure, etc., I'm wondering if there might be something in common here? Maybe an internet connectivity issue at the time?

Lately Firefox has become unbearably slow. I checked my Verizon connection. Their test showed I have good network response. I get these long TLS handshake messages. I tried refreshing Firefox. I lost my adblock then reinstalled it. It seems to be working but I no longer see the icon showing how many ads are blocked. I thought I might try customizing it but when I go into Settings-Add-ons I can't even find it. By the way I can't find what release I'm on either but it should be the latest.

Thunderbird on my iMac has now just started crashing out when trying to start the program; Thunderbird starts and runs on my laptop with no change - but now for no apparent reason it starts to open but crashes and sends off report of the crash; Tried to start it in troubleshoot mode and it crashes also. I have loads of folders with info inside thunderbird this and I don't want to lose that; Can this be migrated in some way? Cant see a solution to the crashes in the community info or discussions - what should be my next steps? The emails are now still accessible via my website console - but now not via thunderbird. There was an issue at the server which is now fixed - but Thunderbird still will not start. Thanks.

Basically.

I see a lot of options on how to disable Javascript context menus on sites, for purpose.

I want the opposite - certain sites, most notably Google Workspace and Nextcloud, have a very useful Javascript context menu for things like tweaking format or renaming files.

But when I right-click in Firefox, the browser's own context menu pops up and overlaps with the site's, making it nearly unusable. (Pressing escape to dismiss the menu has a 50% chance of also dismissing the site's)

Any way to disable the context menu? Bonus points if it can be done on a per-site basis.
