For a couple of months now, my favorite browser, Firefox, has been locking up on me. It started this year right after an update. It suddenly locks up! Completely! Sometimes I cannot get it to close. I have had to shut down my pc to get rid of a locked up Firefox browser. These days I only need to right click the Firefox tab on the task bar and click "Close Window". That has been a big help.

So, I give up on Firefox and made Chrome the default browser. Then behind the scenes, someone installs a patch to the main server and fixes the problem.

I check it often and when I see that you fixed it, I set it back to default browser for about 2 or 3 weeks and then Firefox locks up again. I shut it down and switch to the Chrome browser again.

Back and forth I go. It locks up. I switch to Chrome. You finally fix it yet again. I try it after a few days and discover that you fixed it and make it default browser again.

And here I am again! I cleared the lock up by right clicking on the taskbar Firefox tab. Now I get a dialog box that has an option to shut down Firefox. Then I see a time bar move across the dialog box and close. Nice touch!

Now I switched to the Chrome Browser again and I am waiting for you to fix your Firefox browser for the 5th or 6th time this year.

Let me give you some advice. Burn it to the ground and start over. What you are doing does not help!

Tbird hangs "Downloading Message 1 of ..."

Since starting my Win 10 Pro computer today, Thunderbird 115.4.2 (64-bit) has been "dead in the water". When it's launched, it posts the customary "Downloading Message 1 of [N]" status report, but then hangs right there, takes 3 or 4 minutes even to (re-)populate the tabs and panes that had been open, doesn't get past the alleged first new msg even in 15 or 20 minutes. When it does populate the Inbox pane, it shows no messages newer than last night just before shutdown. Very sluggish response to cursor, too: for ex. 30 seconds from clicking on a msg title in the Inbox pane to displaying that msg, even longer to bring up Help/About (with "Not Responding" shown in its title bar.)

  I get my mail through gmail's IMAP server but prefer to use Tbird's interface . Thinking there might be something evil about the first msg that was waiting to be downloaded, I used gmail's web interface to review everything new since last night, deleted several msgs that had attachments, then started Tbird again.  No change.  Can't even get Tbird into the "Work offline" state because it attempts download-of-new-msgs immediately after being started.
  The only consistently effective way I have found to STOP the hung Tbird is through (Classic) Task Manager's "Processes" list, which usually shows five or six "thunderbird.exe" instances.  After selecting whichever has the largest memory allocation I click on "End Process."
  This all "feels like" a bollixed internal state.  Does Tbird store internal-state information in its own file, or is it buried in the Registry?   If I attempt restoration from a backup, which files are needed; or is that unwise?
 I see there is a mid-April update available to 115.10; would installing it reset current messed-up internal state, or will that already messy situation prevent the update?   Is there any risk of losing my Inbox, Sent, etc contents?

Thanks!!!

Problems creating or renaming folders

I've been reorganizing my folders, and while working on this, I will occasionally find that I can no longer create a new folder or rename an existing one, or, somewhat worse, when I rename a folder, it will disappear, along with the messages that were in it. The messages that were in the missing folder don't show up in a search, and aren't in trash.

If I close Tbird and quickfilters, and sometimes also restart the computer, the functions again work as they should (but the missing folders do not reappear). Rebuilding the parent folder doesn't recover the missing subfolder. The problem can happen when Tbird is the only open application.

Any idea what can cause this? Or where the missing emails might be?

Thanks Kent

My wife is an ardent and long-time Thunderbird user. She has tens of thousands of old emails organized into dozens of folders. Recently she noted that many folders contained scrambled emails. For example, an email titled "The race to re-design sugar" from Sept. 2020 now contained what looked like content from an email from Office Depot. See below for a short piece of the body of the email. Anyway, I ran Thunderbird's "repair folder" function and not only did it not unscramble the emails, it also seems to have deleted any emails prior to 6 months ago. Fortunately I've got her T-Bird profile file backed up daily, so was able to restore the original (but scrambled) emails. Any thoughts? I use outlook, but I've got pretty good PC skills if you need to take me into the weeds. Thanks!

Example of one of the scrambled emails: 'From - Sun Feb 4 12:28:28 2024 X-Account-Key: account5 X-UIDL: AEZHkUhl+QCXZb/zNgpcWOY28vQ X-Mozilla-Status: 0009 X-Mozilla-Status2: 00000000 X-Mozilla-Keys: Received: from 127.0.0.1 by atlas-sbc-production.v2-mail-prod1-bf1.omega.yahoo.com pod-id atlas--sbc-production-bf1-7448fd4479-zt82t.bf1.yahoo.com with HTTP; Sun, 4 Feb 2024 20:27:34 +0000 Return-Path: <error@em.officedepot.com> X-Originating-Ip: [20.57.66.208] Received-SPF: pass (domain of em.officedepot.com designates 20.57.66.208 as permitted sender) Authentication-Results: atlas-sbc-production.v2-mail-prod1-bf1.omega.yahoo.com; dkim=pass header.i=@em.officedepot.com header.s=officedepot; spf=pass smtp.mailfrom=em.officedepot.com; dmarc=pass(p=NONE) header.from=em.officedepot.com; X-Apparently-To: xxxx.xxxx@att.net; Sun, 4 Feb 2024 20:27:34 +0000 X-YMailISG: T.w7qP0WLDtIndBfVsii11yVLG9YUwuh8bXrpNWGHf2Ezt9n W35tfL8ReGJq0phUGg1KeSNel41YbOoogg21rDC6q0i7xvo0jIbdikP0kWCS '

Videos are lagging frequently, seems like the fps drops a lot. It usually happens as soon as I pause or skip forward/backward. It doesn't depend on the source of the video, as it is the same for all the websites. My network connection is stable. Pausing or reloading doesn't help, the problem is persistent at all times. I have to skip backwards then forwards to the same spot. I use Samsung Galaxy S20 and Samsung Galaxy Tab S8. Firefox version 126.0 (Build #2016019903)

Every third or fourth website I open, I get the "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site." error. if I wait a few seconds and hit try again, it works. Very frustrating and slows me down every day. Here is what I tried so far:

-Booted firefox in safe mode to make sure it is not any of my extensions. (This did not solve the issue) -Cleared cache time range "everything" (This did not solve the issue) -Made sure my version of firefox is up to date -Updated windows and restarted my computer

Some clues that may help you help me: -This issue only appears on my home PC but not my work PC or laptop -The websites I am opening work fine on other browsers.

Please help! I am getting tired of this

For some reason, the bullets used to hide a password are not rendered properly in Firefox. As shown by the first uploaded image, they are displayed as big white-filled circles.

This problem does not occur on chromium-based browsers, as shown by the second uploaded image, which is a screenshot taken from chromium, on the exact same session.

I have already done the following:

  • verified that the "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" box is checked in my preferences. I have also tried disabling and re-enabling this option
  • launched FF in troubleshoot mode to disable extensions and hardware acceleration
  • verified that gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled is set true in my about:config

All of these attempts however failed to solve the problem.

This problem is occurring on a fresh install of a Linux distro, so I first thought that I might be missing some fonts, but the problem might lie somewhere else since the symbols are properly displayed in chromium-based browsers.

I’m running Supernova 115.11.0 (32-bit) on a Windows 7 desktop (64-bit), and – from the beginning – it has been freezing at least once every 24 hours. The only way to “unfreeze” it is to use Task Manager to close Thunderbird, and then reboot it. No troubleshooting reports are ever shown.

Is this a wide-spread issue, that may be addressed in updates?

Once again, Firefox updated itself w/o warning. As a result, the YouTube list of videos I wanted to watch has been lost. The "Restored Session" only contains the current video, not the queue of videos I'd been looking forward to. I had Firefox set NOT to auto-update, but apparently the last Update changed that as well. I was happy with the previous version, and didn't need or want an Update, at least not now. Could you please either fix the Restore Session to include the WHOLE web page, including YouTube queues, or make the Do Not Auto-Update choice persistent through Updates. Better yet, both. (I've just reset the about:preferences>settings>General>FireFox Updates>Allow FireFox to... box to "... let me choose to install them." Let's keep it that way!)
