Dear Sirs,

Since mid-November 2022 I encounter a login failure issue with my Wordpress website. I get a "500 Internal Server Error" when I try to login. This happens only on the Firefox browser. All systems components are up-to-date.

I tried: - cleaning cookies and cache, - logging in private windows, - logging in the Firefox Troubleshoot mode.

I spoke with my web hosting service. They had the same issue with my website. They said that recently this issue was brought up not only by me. No solution so far.

Are you aware of such an issue? What more could I do do eliminate the issue?

I would prefer to continue editing my website using the Firefox, as always.

Best regards, Mike

I love how the new tab page clearly states "Never fear losing a closed tab again.", and then when a window disappears it is followed by zero history to recover it. I have not restarted Firefox, let alone my computer since the last time the window was seen (about half an hour ago). It's not in my Alt+Tab tray hiding. I don't even remember closing the tab--though it's possible my keyboard double pressed when I was closing another window. (It's old and has a tendency to double hit keys). But now I have lost a window with at least 20 tabs open--mostly things i had yet to deal with and don't remember the URL to get back to it.

What use is my history and ability to reopen accidentally closed windows if everything just disappears from it within half an hour after the window could've been closed?

I would prefer to keep most of my browsing on Firefox, but I can't constitute that if I'm going to lose months worth of saved tabs randomly.

Hello :)

I'm using Firefox 107.0 on macOS 12.6.1 and I'm having weird issues with the displayed font. It appears on the startup screen of Firefox and on websites (see screenshots attached).

The garbled font is called ".SF NS".

I've tried turning the option "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" on and off without success.

I have also tried enabling and disabling hardware acceleration - also without luck.

The issue does **not** appear in safe mode. Unfortunately resetting the theme and disabling all extensions hasn't helped either :(

I have also downloaded and installed a font called "SFNS Display" but the issue persists.

Uninstalling Firefox (with AppCleaner) and reinstalling hasn't fixed the problem.

I don't know what else to try. Can someone help me please? :)

When on youtube or any video website, when I click the PiP button on the side of the video, instead of having the video popup on the screen I have a new windows (only visible in the windows taskbar) which is invisible.

If I try to hover the (empty) preview in windows, it should hide everything else and show the window, but nothing happens as if the popup create a window but stops in the middle.

I tried with Firefox (v107.0 64-bit) and Firefox dev edition (v108.0b6 64-bit), same problem. I tried disabling every addon/theme, same problem. I tried disabling hardware acceleration, same problem. I tried Troubleshoot mode, works correctly.

Before re-installing Windows it worked normally. What could be the problem ?

To give a bit of Context I work in IT and although I don't special in Thunderbird by any means, I have set up multiple users with Thunderbird, I've migrated from Windows Live Mail (WLM) plenty of times in the past.

I had a customer who was using WLM 2012 on her laptop and still using the POP settings.

I was trying to migrate her out of Windows Live Mail into Thunderbird, used the Add-On "ImportExportTools NG" to import the emails that I was able to successfully Export from WLM.

I've used this Add-on several times with no problems, not that I believe the issue has anything to do with the add-on but I believe giving the most information to help resolve this issue is best.

After the e-mails were imported into the Local Folders, there was 2 Parent Folders with a lot of sub-folders which she sorted her e-mails into.

Both folders uploaded successfully, I can login to Webmail with her e-mail and I can see all the folders, all of the emails that I've uploaded all show up and are accessible.

Now, when I look in Thunderbird, I can see ALL of the folders, both Parent folders and ALL sub folders. In the first Parent Folder I can see all of the e-mails that are in each sub-folder without a problem.

Second Parent Folder shows all of the subfolders, but it does not display a single e-mail throughout any of the folders. -Clicked on each folder for it to "Update" -Tried to deleted the .MSF files related to those folders, no change. -Tried to go into the Properties and ensure that these folders were Subscribed. -Tried to Repair the folder(s) -Tried to select Download Now under Synchronization -Tried to edit the Retention Policy in case there was somehow a setting on the mail server that was stopping them from display.

I then simply Uninstalled Thunderbird, deleted the entire Thunderbird folder from %appdata%\Local that contains the folders and information, but when I re-added the account it re-downloaded everything Except that same problem folder...

I'm hopeful that someone has ideas as to how to resolve this type of issue, if there are any ideas please share them. I'm quite comfortable doing some advanced tests/fixes.

Thanks in advance.

First, this post is basically Congratulations for Firefox upon working almost flowlessly under this extreme heavy load without crashing. Saving/loading sessions works well. (which is unexpected but makes me _very_ happy :-)) Firefox exits properly without any exceptions, no matter how long it runs, or how many times the PC is sent to STR mode meanwhile.

Second, everything is fine, except RAM usage. No matter how many RAM is installed, Firefox takes up all of it after a few days of normal operation. I have recently upgraded my PC from 16 to 24 GB of RAM only for this sole reason to see if anything changes, but it did not produce any noticable change, except that it takes 5-7 days for Firefox to fill up all the RAM instead of the 3-4 days before. Disk space on C: drive was nullified by Firefox as the paging file went up to 50 GB.

I want to hunt down this thing. I have approx. 300 tabs, 2 addons, and Hardware Acceleration is disabled since otherwise Fox hangs several times a day (have to be killed from outside). Pics are attached. https://addons.mozilla.org/hu/firefox/addon/tree-tabs/ https://gitlab.com/kroppy/TreeTabs

I'd like to get suggestions where to start.

  1. Disabling or replacing the adblocker ?
  2. Inspecting memory usage on Process Manager (about:processes) and Task Manager (about:performance) pages ?
  3. Installing some external tools like Firemin ?

Please don't suggest neither safe mode nor disabling all addons, since that makes it impossible to reproduce this amount of load, which is the primary reason behind the symptom.

I PrtScr'ed Process Manager and Task Manager, see that RAM sizes per page are normal in Task Manager, but not in Process Manager (10 times more).

CPU usage is totally normal for this load, even when memory is in the heaven. See the TaskMan pic. (I suppose that's because of ad blocking)

Thanks for any ideas,

Each morning when I wake up my Mac(I do not turn it off and just have a hot corner set up to put Mac to sleep as, I have done for many years) this new 102.3.1 will not connect with server to download messages. You have to quit App and open it again for it to work. It has only started doing this after updating to 102.3.1

I have seen this question already asked on here, but no answers of any use thus far.

Another issue is that Accounts has been removed from Tools. Why oh why do Thunderbird keep messing about unnecessarily with features for no good reason? There is far too much messing about and people do not have that time to trawl through reams of typed information to continue using an App that used to work properly. In the release notes it says, "Account settings moved to macOS application menu". What does this mean? It was fine where it was under "Tools" .

Companies seem to forget that people use many different applications on many platforms and are not just having to deal with one outfit that likes to overcomplicate things on a regular basis. Settings need simplifying by companies and not overindulgence by designers/software writers.
