"ios homepage settings" (benisjesus2003 9/13/21, 10:44 AM) and "How to open iOS Firefox on blank home page" (miggy.ad 9/16/21, 5:57 PM), both started discussions regarding the use of "about:blank" and seeing a blank page when Firefox iOS opens. There really was not a solution provided. I've a work around for the time being and would like to know if anyone else has a better solution because "about:blank" has been a favorite homepage, Opening Screen, ...etc. Start with the 3 horizontal bars in the bottom right corner. Select {Settings} and {Homepage} is selected, the first setting is [OPENING SCREEN]. Set this to {Homepage}. Scroll down to [CURRENT HOMEPAGE] and type "https://www.blank.org" into {Custom URL}. To save the entry, touch {Firefox Home} just above the entry. The results while not the same as "about:blank" are very similar. If anyone else has a better solution, please post it here. (Please keep any replies positive to we can share ideals and solutions in the common forum.)

For at least a year, the Healthline site stopped working in FireFox. This was finally corrected a few weeks ago. Now, for the last couple of weeks Reddit no longer works. Both of the above sites have always worked in Brave and Opera. A work around for Healthline was to run it in a private window but this does not work for Reddit. This has become very annoying to the point I am ready to give up on FF. Any suggestions?

The Bookmark menu used to open with ONE click. Now it assumes you're using the same bookmark, and if you want a different one, you have to click twice. I have many bookmark categories, and I usually have to click twice to get to the menu to choose a folder/location.

I looked for but couldn't find an OPTION for it to work as it used to, open with one click. I'm disappointed that I couldn't find this option. I hope the option to return to the way it used to work will be available in the next Firefox update.

I run third party software called Planeplotter and Planebase. Every night ar midnight it creates a log - really a text file. For years I have been sending this log to three interested parties. Since - about the 1st June, my log is not automatically sending. It is setup to send at 0001 every night to an address in google groups and also io.groups. Since 1st June I am getting an error message when I try to send via my Thunderbird software - gmail account. The error message is 0x80040217 unable to send to the SMTP server.

Since 1 June, I have migrated to a different PC (win 10) as my Win 7 PC eventually fell over. I have new versions of all my software, which, as far as I am concerned comes from a known and reputable source and I have been running it continuously for over 5 years without problem. I think I have also had a Thunderbird update also.

Can you advise any possible solution as to how to get Thurnderbird / gmail to accept my log file to send, please

Hello, I have been using Firefox as my main browser for more than a decade. One could say i am some Mozilla fanboy, having convinced many of my friends and relatives to use Firefox instead of any chrome based options (Which there are to many these days). It struck me today, as i was reworking some workflow elements in many programs i use daily, that it is impossible to change any key binding in Firefox anymore. I know it has been a while now, and i searched all over the web for an answer or a solution, but at this point it is clear that other than going in the code and recompiling Firefox manually, it is not possible. I stumbled upon the (only) extension that allows to change some shortcuts, but the two that i wanted to change are impossible to configure from it, being disabling only f12 as i would use it for other things but i do not want to lose the dev console and also ctrl+L to open the address bar, it is quite inconvenient and would much prefer to use ctrl+spacebar as it matches many other bindings i am using with other software. There have been many other features that were changed in the recent years that made me start to look for an alternative, as i see features melting away almost as quickly as the user base of the product.

I do understand that one person's problem is not going to change the way a big piece of software is working, but i am wondering, why are the users losing such features as basic as customizing key bindings in a piece of software that used to be so incredibly customizable in the past? Why is the only viable option to anything chrome based losing it's edge over the competition? Is Firefox v150 be based on the chromium engine or will it die before?

Thank you in advance, and no, i don't need the link to the shortcut page, i already have it.

My question is how do I know I have successfully subscribed a folder?

The attached imagine is an example.

If I click on subscribe or unsubscribe nothing changes. Even after clicking refresh.

So how do I know a folder is successfully subscribed?

Patch 1 and 2. 91 Branch: Patch 1 and 2 (Despite saying Parts 2 and 3, there is no Part 1). To clarify, so the current 102 release of FF does not 'contain any patch for that bug 1771084, and it's recommended manually to install these patches? Or they are already incorporated in the release?

I recently had to restore my computer. Doing that I have to get the new firefox which I now have version 102. Updates disabled instantly. I was on version 88. On version 88 this feature was not on it and version 102 now has this feature and I do not like it.

The feature I am talking about is if you open the downloads panel and view the downloads list and right click on one of the downloaded files in list there is now an option to Delete. I accidentlly hit this and thought it was just deleting it from downloads panel. Nope it deletes it from computer permanently, not even to recycle bin. Click Delete its gone for good until download it again.

And this delete option is right above the option remove from history, which I use a lot.

So I want to know how to disable this delete option? Thanks

I posted this last year and one other person chimed in with the same issues, but there were no responses, and the thread was archived. The other person suggested this problem had been around for a long time and he was using a different email system. I am reposting my observations below in the hope there may be a response or a fix.

I am running TBird 91.9 on a Win10 Pro 21H2 laptop and on a Win10 Pro 21H2 Surface GO. My issue is with my Compuserve/AOL email account which is my primary account. I send email on smtp.compuserve.com and receive on imap.aol.com. The issue is intermittent and usually multiple times per day when it occurs. When I am receiving email I get the message "Server imap.aol.com has disconnected. The server may have gone down or there may be a network problem." What does not make sense is that it may occur on one of my PCs and then I will check the other and it is fine. Or sometimes both give this message but then I can go to my iPhone which also receives from imap.aol.com and it has no problems.

The problem is most severe, almost always occurs when I ask to synch mailboxes to go offline. I ask TBird to download all messages before disconnecting and it successfully downloads all of my Compuserve mailboxes except the InBox and consistently gives the server off line warning.

Are there some TBird settings I can adjust to try to resolve this problem?

I do have Comcast and Gmail accounts that do not appear to have this issue but for historical reasons I would like to retain my AOL/Compuserve as my principal account.

Thank you.

A .cpp file is a C++ program source file from Microsoft Visual Studio, and I should be able to open the file with Visual Studio 2019 (current version of Visual Studio on my PC). But misclassifying the .ccp file as GIT does not give me the option of opening the file with Visual Studio 2019. How do I change the classification of .cpp files from GIT to C++ (I'm on the newest version of Firefox...all prior versions worked correctly) ?
