Firefox browser will not open. The FF icon is located in my taskbar (Windows 10). When I rest the mouse on this icon I see a very small representation of a website. When I click on the icon I see flash of some sorts on the desktop for about a nano second but the browser will not open.

I uninstalled FF and reinstalled. FF would open OK and I had no problems opening various websites. However, after I closed FF and attempted to open it up again it would not and so I am back to the original problem.

As I needed to access a website, I attempted to open Microsoft Edge and experienced the exact same problem. With the Microsoft Edge browser icon in the taskbar I can see a very small representation of a webpage but this browser will not open either.

Any assistance you can give me will be much appreciated, Con Van Dyk

Good evening, I am using Thunderbird 91.3.2 32 bit with Windows 10 Pro 64 bit. In the past few days, Thunderbird has taken to deleting emails in progress, without warning, and irretrievably. Despite being set to 'Save every 1 minute', to draft, this is not happening, and I have been unable to find the missing text in the Recycle Bin . The point at which emails vanish varies, so far always after a couple of paragraphs, but the last few words typed remain, as do the recipient and message heading. Until now, Thunderbird has behaved entirely as expected. I have not installed new software, no other programmes are showing aberrant behaviour. As matters stand, Thunderbird, for me, is unusable. A solution to the problem is needed; effective help would be very appreciated. Kind regards, Robin

Hello, I am at a loss to trying to fix a problem after extensive troubleshooting. When I am on Facebook for about five minutes, Firefox stops loading most images. This only occurs with Firefox, not Safari or Chrome. And it only occurs with Facebook and Instagram, which is owned and run by Facebook. I have to restart Firefox to get images back and then after five minutes or so, it happens again every time. Can anyone help? This is driving me crazy!

Thank you

On Startup: - "Open previous windows and tabs." Yes, I have this checked, but it ain't actually doing it. What's the solution?

True or False? If this box is checked I can quit Firefox altogether which tabs still open, and those same tabs will automatically load again upon reopening Firefox.

1. iNTRO - I spent an extra un-necessary year on the beta channel because of TBs Oauth2 set up problem. While there I had a major Tbird crash. Duplicates appearing , moving emails to other folders resulting in loss of said emails. incessant indexing, compacting and re-appearance of deleted contents of directories with unexpected loss of current contents. A real mess. After a month of this nonsense I only managed to recover by re-installing Beta to a new directory and copying backed up local folders manually, directory by directory, into the new Beta and checking (and or repairing) the contents, folder by folder. It took a day and a half. Arising from this experience and looking, sometimes aghast at the Beta Channe,l I suggest the following.

2. Suggestions 2 .1 Repair Tool We need to have a repair tool to rebuild a mail system just as I have partially described - you will know that there are many nuances in such a rebuild with some .sbd files not being recognised automatically and some others being recognised (trial and error methods were used to overcome these problems). In short you guys have the rule book and could easily programme a rebuild tool. What a relief it would be to know that such a rescue vehicle was at hand. 2.2 Back Up Tool As email data bases grow - mine is now 33 Gb - there has to be good back up system that users can trust. In the MS world (awful software) the back-up tools are not much good - so it would be useful for TB to do this or recommend some software for this purpose. I think TB guys should do this as Restore facilities are critical here - offering users options to recover particular email folders and emails and place them in particular locations would seem essential. 2.3 Archive

I have a lot of folders - but many are not  active at any one time. eg I have sent directories going back to 1997 eg Sent_1997, Sent_1998 etc . It would be useful to have a foreground / background arrangement of folders where folders in the background were semi-archived. They would be visible and accessible when required but not part of TB's routine search or maintenance .   They could be differently coloured in the LHS pane. It might take longer to access them. This might have the effect of preventing loss of active performance.

2.4 Deep Archive A deep archive where the user elects to compress(ZIP) folders in the Deep Archive. Once archived these would be ignored by the system unless they were released into the foreground /background area 2.5 Purge Command When things go wrong and the indexing screws up many duplicates are sometimes created. There should be a Purge folder command when right clicking on a folder.

There are other things such as better TB messaging and better documentation of the profile folder system - the existing information is too dispersed - and shoe-string - needs a User friendly approach not assuming one is familiar with shells. Do everything through DOS for consistency. Here too a tool would be useful.

Best

We've been using thunderbird for more than 20 years now at work. It has proven itself reliable and production ready. I am sorry to say in the last 5 years or so every update has been worse than the previous one becoming the least reliable piece of software ever. Constant crashing ie 8-10 times a day, lack of smtp communication with the servers, and other constant issues basically make this unusable.

PLEASE forget about aesthetics and concentrate on reliability.

Thunderbird was working fine on two Windows 10 PCs for years. One of the two has stopped downloading emails even though I made no changes to the configuration of either one. The other PC still downloads emails fine.

The two PCs are configured the same way except for email address and password. Both are configured to use verizon.net email addresses, not AOL. (The email is appearing on the AOL webmail site just fine.)

On the PC where Thunderbird has stopped working I get the message: Host contacted, sending login information on [email address] did not succeed. Mail server pop.verizon.net responded : [SYS/TEMP] server error please try again later.

I have looked at the support article "Did your ability to receive mail suddenly stop? Was it working before?" But the suggested possible ways to fix the download problem didn't help.

So now what?

I am having trouble sending attachments over ~1.5 MB. Also applies to inserted photos, etc. This is not a provider server problem as the same providers webmail functions without issue. It is not an account configuration problem as text emails and smaller attachments go through. The size limitation is not rigid. Slightly larger files sometimes get through, up to 2.3 MB in my testing. Slightly smaller files sometimes fail, down to 1.3 MB in my testing.

I get 2 different messages. The progress bar sometimes reaches 100%. In that case I get this message, "The message could not be sent using Outgoing server (SMTP) mail.XXXXX.net for an unknown reason. Please verify that your Outgoing server (SMTP) settings are correct and try again." When the transmission fails at less than 100% I get this message, "Sending of the message failed".

I am using V 91.3.2 I have increased 'Offer to share for files larger than' from 5MB to 10MB with no apparent effect. Posts here have said to change specific timeout settings. I have been unable to locate a 'Connection Timeout' setting or a 'mailnews.tcptimeout' setting anywhere in this version.

Firefox will not play any videos for me. This occurs on every website. On youtube for example, the loading circle will be perpetually spinning over the video. I can use the slider to scrub through the video, and a static image will appear, but not play. The Youtube video will play no problem in Edge browser.

This is on a Dell Latitude laptop with intel i7 integrated graphics. I have already tried every common solution I have found while searching:

  • Computer drivers and Firefox are up to date
  • Disabled hardware acceleration
  • Disabled all my add-ons
  • Turned off Firefox enhanced tracking protection
  • Turned on allow autoplay video and audio
  • Started in safe mode, still won't play video
  • Cleared cookies and site data
  • Refreshed firefox
  • Uninstalled and reinstalled firefox

Is there anything else I can try, or any troubleshooting steps I can follow?

Thank you!

After the latest MacOS update (Monterey) when my laptop started back up I saw everything in Firefox in a different language. This didn't happen in Chrome or Safari. Not it seems to happen if I can't connect to wifi and then reconnect. It's always on an error page and *sometimes* on other pages too (like the login to this forum just now).

I've tried:

  • Reinstalling Firefox
  • Clearing all of my cache and browsing history
  • Using the Firefox repair tool

Nothing seems to help and Apple support just says its a Firefox issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

All of a sudden Firefox has ceased to react when I'm trying to download a file/save a page. When I click Cmd+S or File → Save page as…, nothing happens. When I try to open an upload dialogue, a solid gray window appears, and that's it. Uploading files through drag&drop interface works fine.

The problem seemingly appeared after migrating from a Mac Mini to a Macbook Air (both M1). I've already tried to restart the laptop and refresh Firefox — to no avail.

Is there anything else I could try to do?
