How can I remove the remote content warning, the yellow box?

Posted

Can I somehow disable the "To protect your privacy, Thunderbird has blocked remote content in this message." warning via about:config?

I asked if there was an option to disable the warning.

Found a way: Go to your profile folder in appdata and make a folder called "chrome", then a file called "userChrome.css":

  • #mail-notification-top{
  • display: none;
  • }

restart, done.

You can choose to permanently allow all remote content from all senders, but please read the information at the links below before doing this, so you fully understand the risks you are accepting. Whilst it can seem irritating to have 'remote content' blocked, it is better to be safe than sorry or at least understand the implications. Note: some 'images' can be single pixel and invisible to the eye. But can be used by sender to gain information.

Menu icon (3 lines) > Options > Options > Privacy select the checkbox 'Allow remote content in messages' If using older version of thunderbird, click on OK. Otherwise close 'Options' tab.

Thanks for the reply. Yea I know about that, that's why I have disabled remote content but the yellow box takes to much space I want to get rid of it somehow and not see the box any longer.

I'm gonna check Github and see how u done it there has to be another check for it..

So really you do not want to allow remote content, you just want no yellow line thus removing options button etc. Basically, stop telling you something you already know.
