This problem has only occurred in the last 24 hours:

a) I access a Word file with Firefox (maybe an e-mail attachment, maybe directly from an e-learning site); I tell Firefox to Open With Word 365; the file opens, but only in Read-only mode - I cannot edit the document at all; I cannot change this status from within Word 365.

b) I access the very same file from the very same source but now tell Firefox to Save File to my Desktop; I then open the file with Word 365 - it opens 'normally'; I can edit the document straight away.

Yesterday, it did not matter if I did a) or b), I could always edit the document straight away (Read-only was never 'forced' on me).

As extra background, I have turned off every Protected View feature in Word 365 which I can find - does not help at all.

I want to be able to go back to option a): Open With Word 365, NOT have 'Read-only' & be able to edit the document immediately.

I don't necessarily need the 2 accounts side by side but merely the ability to toggle between the two

5 hr. ago Dell Latitude, Windows 10. Firefox will not display formatting options (such as italics, bold, underline, delete, etc.) in gmail. The only way to display the options is by hovering the cursor over the blank space above the name of the person it's going to (or received mail, just to be able to delete it) until an option appears. Nothing is indicated, and I have to move the cursor until I find the desired option and then click on it. The same thing happens in Chrome. This is totally crazy-making (insofar as gmail worked perfectly until a short time ago) and I'd welcome your suggestions and input.

Someone send me an email with EXCEL attachment but the files I received using Thundermail mail client the attachments becomes symbols and cannot be opened. (see attached image)

The same email was also cc copy to my hotmail account and I can see the attachment from my hotmail which is an EXCEL file and I can open it and use it as normal.

Anyone know how to fix this?

Other files like PDF, JPEG are no problem.

This problem only happen in one of the people who send me the Excel file, other people who send me Excel I can read and open normally so far.

When browsing in some websites such as "facebook.com", "mozilla.org", "lenovo.com", I sometimes get a popup to this link, but I don't have any kind of extension that could be causing that I think. What would be a way to troubleshoot this so that I can prevent that from happening? It's really annoying and the site also seems really sketchy.

The Time Picker icon does not appear while trying to input time in Mozilla Firefox. It is present in case of chrome or edge.

Please refer to the below link to have a look on this issue: [https://www.w3schools.com/tags/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml5_input_ty...]

Is there any work around available for this? I know while we can still input hours, minutes and AM/PM, it's handy to use the time picker.

Hello,

I am currently using Firefox as my main browser on my Windows 10 laptop. I have had no issues with it except for a rather annoying bug I have had with scrolling. Whenever I open Firefox for the first time after powering on my laptop, scrolling with my touchpad will sometimes become choppy, no longer continuing to move after I lift my fingers like it normally does. I am pretty certain it is only Firefox that is doing this, as when I open the Windows start menu, inertial scrolling still works. Is this a bug that other users have had before?

When I try to reply to an incoming email that I have received, it fails and I get the message as per the attachment.

If I restart my laptop and restart Mozilla Thunderbird and try again to reply to the email, it is sent without error.

This problem has only been noticed in the last month or two.

My email address is [edited email from public] @ozemail.com.au. IINET is the service provider.

Many thanks,

Seriously I spent over 2 hours now just finding out how to fix the email grouping in Thunderbird and getting run everywhere for tips that did not work.

Just geting told over and over on every tip site to go to each folder and click view then click unthreaded. Well guess what that did not work for me and I have over 100 mailboxes I am monitoring. The view thing did not work and I did that in more than 5 maiboxes which still remained threaded.

Well anyway and just so everyone knows. The view thing does not work for everyone and this may not either for everyone in all of time but it is much easier.

What you have to do if that is not working is click the very first button at the top of your mail list that when hovered over says "Display Message Threads". Actually try that first. One click and done (Or, 2 clicks and you are back in the same state. So do not double click. Just one click is good enough)

Then your messages will stop threading themselves.

Really just a tip that can save others hours I hope. Just click the first Icon above your mail list that when hovered over says "Display Message Treads"

Done, wish I had known this over 2 hours ago. Just click that icon at the top of the mail list. Then done no more grouping the emails.

Thunderbird is a great mail program. I hope it stays around for a long time. It beats Outlook 1000% lol yeah for realists there is no more than 100 so yeah 100. But if you listen to Sheldon Couper from the Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon there is no such thing as Zero so wow mind blown there could be 1000% haha. Just a joke everybody knows that zero is just a frame of reference so there is no way it does not exist but does it haha joking again.

Peace out

Hope that tip does help

I recently received an alert about a couple of unresolved breaches listed at the Firefox Monitor site. So I signed in to take a look. One of the breaches was a site for which I never actually had an account. Evite But for which it is possible I may have received communications from, like an evite to something at a different email address. I am curious as to how there could have been a breach of my email password for which I received the alert ... since I never had an account for Evite, and never directly interacted with evite at the "breached" email address

sort of a mystery

I'm trying to view a site's local storage on Firefox for Android (109.2.0) from a PC (109.0.1). I've used two different Android devices (Pixel 2 running Android 11 and Acer B1-7A0 running Android 7) on two different PCs (Windows 10 and Ubuntu 22.04). In all cases, when viewing storage I see "No data present for selected host". I am able to view storage for "This Firefox" and viewing other parts (Inspector, Debugger, Network, etc.) appear to work.
