Firefox Sync offers several advantages over other synchronization services. Firstly, it's tightly integrated with Firefox browser, ensuring seamless syncing of bookmarks, history, passwords, and tabs across devices. Unlike some competitors, Firefox Sync is open-source, enhancing transparency and trust. It prioritizes user privacy by encrypting synced data end-to-end, ensuring that Mozilla or any third party cannot access personal information. Additionally, it supports multiple platforms including desktop and mobile, catering to diverse user needs. Users also benefit from features like session restoration and easy setup, making Firefox Sync a robust choice for maintaining continuity and security across browsing sessions.

Slow Unified Inbox Load

Hi,

I am running Thunderbird 115.10.1 (Flatpak) on Ubuntu 20.04. (no extensions except birdtray) I have 4 email addresses added to my TB, and I like to see all of them together, therefore I am using Unified Folders. When I am accessing Unified Inbox, TB is very slow and basically frozen until it loads this folder (often a pop-up appears that 'TB is not responding'). it takes between 30-60 seconds to load my emails (either on start-up, or clicking on another folder, then going back to Unified Inbox). Every other folders open almost instantly. I have to admit I have a lot of emails in the Unified Inbox (~20K), however the inbox of my main email has 18K, and accessing that folder separately is instant. So any operation, other than opening Unified Inbox, is quite snappy.

This issue persists since I upgraded to v115, even when I did an OS reinstall (also tried installing apt (v115.11.0)).

I have seen this answer: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1428374#question-reply however, nothing changed by resetting the folder.

ALT-SHIFT-LEFT has been 'select word backwards' for years, at least on macs. And so it was on FF too. Now they suddenly decided to re-map it to 'select left tab'. There was already a key for that - CMD-ALT-LEFT. Which also works for the right, whereas ALT-SHIFT-RIGHT does nothin

Who decided on that change? And why is there no way for us users to remap those key shortcuts? I have many years of muscle-memory using ALT-SHIFT-LEFT, I am not going to reprogram it because of some opinionated Mozilla engineer, sorry.

I am running Thunderbird 115.11.1 on Windows 11 and no matter what I do I simply cannot send a calendar invitation. I click to create a new event, I add the email addresses of the attendees, I make sure to click the checkbox to send out invitations and as soon as I click Save and close nothing happens other than the addition of the event to my own calendar.

Yes, I have checked whether my email address is included in the calendar settings. Additionally, there is nothing in the Sent folder after clicking Save and close.

I added a second IMAP profile on thunderbird and i keep getting the message 93% memory used. I understand he maximum capacity should be 4 GB, but when i checked, the first profile had 3.5 GB full, and the second only 1 GB. Is it because i added the second one and thunderbird split the memory capacity? I removed the first acount and stil the second one has only 1 GB memory. i need the emails received and cannot delete anymore messages, I am afraid it reaches full memory capacity and will not be able to receive emails.

Customize Links on Firefox New Tab Page

For many years I have used the ability to set shortcuts to website on the Firefox home tab, using the method given at: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customize-items-on-firefox-new-tab-page#w_pin-unpin-or-remove-a-shortcut.

However, today, when I try to edit a shortcut link, I do not get the 3 dots menu by right clicking on a shortcut tile.

Is this a recent change, a bug, an issue with my installation (which has been stable for many years)?

How can I get back the functionality back?

I am using Firefox 127.0 (64 bit) on Windows (Windows 11, all up to date).

A while back the behavior of the ctrl+shift+t shortcut changed from reopening tab in the current window to reopening tab in the current window or reopening last closed window which for me and a lot of other people too made it worse. There's been a thread https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1421356 but it's been archived without a real solution. Is there now a way like a about:config toggle to bring back the old functionality? I really miss the old behavior.

Hi is there an add-on or can the settings of Thunderbird be changed so that when an email notification on macos comes through, it shows the first few words of an email. This is helpful for receiving verification codes. You can know it just by a glance at the notification rather than open the email.

At the moment it shows the email from and subject but not the first few words of the email body (unlike iOS).

Today for the first time after the latest update 127.0 (64-bit), my many firefox pages and tabs crashed and closed and a pop up to send crash report.

So I have fired up firefox again to find only a single page opens up, I have lost probably 16+ pages with multiple tabs on each, been like that for months, I have 32GB memory so there is normally no issues or slowness. However after the crash, even though only a single firefox page is open, windows task manager shows Firefox (20) and if I expand the task, I can see each firefox is taking lots of memory.

So it looks like the old session pages/tabs are still there somewhere but not accessible, I would like to get them back if possible. I went through reseting it to default, disabling the add ons etc but nothing has worked.

Greetings support team. The problem is a bit complicated and I could't find anything similar to it on the net, so I'll try to explain in details what happened. One day after opening the browser I noticed that it didn't launch(there was no window). After opening it again I saw that all of my previously opened tabs were gone. After that I closed Firefox and went to check the task manager. I found that Firefox was still running after closing it. I couldn't wrap my head around it and killed the programm. Then I opened it again and got the same results: first launch: no Firefox window(nothing on the taskbar either), secound launch: one empty tab. After that I opened a new tab in Firefox through task manager and my screen "swiped right", I got access to Firefox window with all of my previous tabs, but all the other programms I had opened on the taskbar were gone. Somehow Firefox opens outside my screen on a "separate one" every first time I launch the app, and the only way to switch between "screens" is to open a new tab through task manager or launch a program that was previously active to switch back to previous "screen". It is also impossible to switch between opened windows on different "screens" using gestures on the touchpad or "Alt" + "Tab". I use a laptop and never even tried to attach/connect a second monitor. I don't have another monitor attached via bluetooth or any other means in device manager. I have the latest verion of windows 10 installed and updated. I have another PC, where I use the same Firefox with the same addons on the same Mozilla account, which has no such issues. I have tried renaming the file called "xulstore.json" to "xulstore.old" or deleting it entirely, this didn't resolve the issue.

Wanted to get information on the crash, but when I navigated to the about:crashes page, it return a page with title "invalid URL" and the page says "Hmm. That address doesn’t look right."

Is there a way to get to the crash data/information?
