no gmail in firefox
« on: February 20, 2024, 05:40:52 AM »
have installed the TC14 (coreplus) with JWM.  Have the firefox opened after using the apps "firefox_getLatesst.tcz".  Several tabs including gmail and facebook doesn't work.  My hardware is 64bit i5 CPU with 8G of RAM.  as can be seen FF is 32bit...
I have installed vivaldi from apps and gmail there works but prefer FF.  Is there a fix?

Hi puppybyte!

That's because  coreplus  is 32 bit.
If you want 64 bit, look over here:

You could try starting firefox from a terminal like this:
Code: [Select]
firefox 2>&1 | tee FFerrors.txtto see if any useful messages are displayed when connecting to Gmail.
That command will display messages on the terminal and log them
to  FFerrors.txt.  Running the command again will overwrite the file.
If want it to append to the file, run it like this:
Code: [Select]
firefox 2>&1 | tee -a FFerrors.txt

I don't use GMail or Facebook, so I can't be sure there's a widespread problem, but in general the first step with Firefox problems like this is to create a new profile and see if the same problem happens there. I use the profile manager to create and select the profiles by starting Firefox from a terminal with this command:
Code: [Select]
firefox --ProfileManager

If it works there, then in your usual profile, disable add-ons or changes to default settings (in the settings, or about:config if you've set things in there too) until you find what's upsetting those websites.
