Update to 52.5.2 (64-bit) RUINED my settings (addons don't work) How do I Revert to 52.1.1.1

Veröffentlicht

There really needs to be a "revert to my previous version" button. This sucks; I'm going to have to do a lot of work to get it working again.

I cannot read the INBOX index because the font in the application windows is miniscule. A capital letter is 2mm high on my 17" screen. No human being can read lettering this small !!!

The addon list under Extensions does not indicate that any have been disabled. I think that I need "No Small Text" and "Theme Font & Size Changer" to become operational.

OR it might be that long ago I changed something in about:config but I'm not a programmer; I don't remember this stuff.

Just quit the 55.1.1. and opened 55.5.2. Still says the install on Theme & Font No Expiration fails because corrupt. Quit & reopened several times, install always fails.

I just downloaded the .dmg file for TB 55.2 from the mozilla site & opened TB from that.

Install of T&F Changer still says "corrupt." quit, reopened, attempted to install several times I don't think the problem is on my end.

Dpi is system wide, not per application. If your display manager doesn't know the actual resolution, it can't be expected to do any sizing in a rational manner.

I thought the problem was that the author's official versions of T&FSM "expired" and won't work with TB 5.5.2 ???

Hence needing to use the "no expiration" version at rossde.com ???

And I just re-installed TB 5.5.2 and the No Exp version is still "corrupt". And I did delete any other versions of T&FSM before trying, as it says in its instructions. And I tried it with TB running and not running.

Also tried the latest T&FSM via the TB AddOns search, and it installs but no icon, does not function.

AFAIK OSX has no "display manager" -- I can choose a different DPI than "default for display" via Prefs/Display but that would screw up all other apps. So it seems to be a TB coding problem; does not default to current display resolutions or sense them & accomodate. What resolution does TB presume?

Anyone else using a 2010 or 2011 17" screen Mac Power Book?

screen resolution: 1920 by 1200 (native) So I just took a screen grab of the TB inbox index list. To see wysiwyg, it seems necessary to set the image viewer as shown in the insert. But I have to convert the tiff to something else to post so dunno if I can post a duplicate of the size I see... so png...

The height of a row (measure a grey line) is about 3mm on my screen. SO capital letters are more like 2mm high. I have to pick up the damn computer and hold it closer to my eyes to resolve such miniscule lettering.

No one is disputing your assertion that the fonts are the wrong size. But the only meaningful way to demonstrate it is to include both normal and abnormal fonts in the same image. The fact that you imagine an arbitrary screenshot can somehow be displayed anywhere else at an exact size tells me you haven't thought very much about resolutions and scalings. Your image will appear as so many pixels wide and so many pixels tall, so the size on anyone else's screen depends on the size and density of the pixels in their display, which doesn't necessarily bear any relation to what you have there.

Others have been able to use the two addons on offer.

You can unzip, edit and re-zip your own copy of the original add-on.

You could follow the simple instructions on setting up a userChrome.css file and eliminate your dependence on this particular addon for font sizing. A similar userContent.css file would also obviate the need for zooming tools when reading messages.

You could look into setting an appropriate screen resolution. Changing my dpi from 96 to 142 made a huge and useful adjustment. This is easy on Linux. Microsoft appear to think this is too complicated for mere users so they present it as a trial-and-error percentage scaling toy. I've never been tempted to spend my money on overpriced Apple kit so I can't comment on how stupid Apple think their users are.

15 pt is good for me.

EXCEPT now the line height is too small. So how do I increase the line height?

What is the TB "default" value for these things?

And what else can I make bigger? The font size for a hover-over popup is even smaller than the default menu font size.

This all goes back to the 1990's when MicroShaft created their editor where every level got a different font size.

ZENOS: I downloaded the No Exp XPI file from your DROPBOX link.

Figured out how to install it: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/installing-addon-thunderbird#w_a-slightly-less-ideal-case-install-from-a-downloaded-xpi-file

It appears on the menu bar, but when I invoke it, there is no elevator bar. I cannot reveal the APPLY button (which I recall is located) at the very bottom; it is hidden below my screen. It does not respond to the "drag page down" gesture on my trackpad.

My line heights were off too until I fixed the Dpi.

Your screen has a physical width in inches. It also has a logical width in pixels. Divide one into the other and you get dots per inch. If the system knows the Dpi it knows how big physically a pixel is and so how many of them to use to make up a character of a given physical size.

I've had that same issue with menus taller than the screen. In some cases, it's possible to place a cursor then walk it up and down using the arrow keys. Despite the lack of scroll bars, it can still scroll when you hit the end. In other cases, you can add further code to the userChrome file to limit the size of dialogues. But it takes painful detective work to find the names of the appropriate display elements.

None of this is good and none of this should be necessary. I am sad and disappointed that is all so hard. It's not just Thunderbird; I have other software that can't cope with a display spread over multiple screens at varying resolutions. The happiest compromise comes when you can find an external screen that is the same logical size in pixels as the internal screen (even though physically bigger and therefore of a lower Dpi specification). This size and scaling issue is an endless pain when connecting a computer to a projector or interactive smart screen for a meeting.

There are different motivations for gui design too. I use big screens because I want bigger text. My younger colleagues tend to use a big hi res screen so they can see more things (using what I would consider tiny text) at once. People who design and test layout with small text on big screens won't encounter these problems where menus don't fit. But it's hard to get people to test using settings other than what they choose for themselves.

I do the same myself. Users post here with issues due to usage modes that I am uncomfortable with, and it's hard to avoid saying "why don't you do it this way?" even though that is ultimately unhelpful. They wish to do it in the way they like to do it and alternatives are usually not welcome.

Well, the menus have alternating grey & white rows, so there must be something that specifies how many 1 pixel rows make up a "line" height.

Good code would have the line height controlled by the font size and centering the letter in the middle of the row.

My screen converts to 133.xx DPI native. But I can't input any DPI, only choose from a list of resolutions in W x H format. And I'd have to change it for various apps.

Turns out that the No Exp version DOES show all the menu; there is no APPLY button at the bottom. But on my 10.11.6 machine, its not popup window ; it has its own full window expanded horizontally to fill the screen. On my 10.6.8 machine it is a little popup box that fits within the window.

T&FSC does increase the size of the rows -- so the command is in its code, might be easy to find so can be added to the .css file method -- just in case T&FSC should break in the future.

There is yet another variant of the add-on here.

It may well be that the other modified packages fail for Mac users because they are not signed; this is definitely true of my own.

There is yet another variant of the add-on here. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/theme-font-size-changer-for-tb/reviews/1026579/ It may well be that the other modified packages fail for Mac users because they are not signed; this is definitely true of my own.

Works with Thunderbird 3.0b4 - 59.0

does that mean a build of 59.0, or does it mean a version 3 beta-something up to & including 59.0 ???

The other day I tried the TB version & it said it would not work with my ... system ???

I got the impression that this one had been signed or whatever is needed to make it appear legitimate on a Mac. I can't test that for myself; I don't have (or don't have the use of) a Mac.

Yes - "Works with Thunderbird 3.0b4 - 59.0" means "version 3 beta-something up to & including 59.0".

The fact that a single version can claim to work with such a wide range of Thunderbird versions does suggest that either it does nothing contentious that would stop it from working, or else it contains switches to allow it to cope with version-specific differences.

All of which makes the current version's auto-destruct behaviour most vexatious.
