How do I change the time that messages I am writing automatically go to draft folder?

Posted

On the older version if I was writing an e-mail, it would automatically be save to the draft folder.

Firefox can be used with many different webmail services, and the answer probably depends on which one you're using.

Or if you are asking about Thunderbird, there's a dedicated support site here: https://support.mozillamessaging.com/.

I looked in the Yahoo! mail settings and didn't see anything relating to saving drafts.

The help page for Classic Mail refers to automatically saving draft messages, but doesn't mention anything about user options: http://help.yahoo.com/tutorials/mmail.../mm_draft2.html.

I didn't see a similar page for the new mail interface... but pressing Ctrl+s will click the button, so if you are accustomed to pressing Ctrl+s to save in other software, that shortcut may be easy for you to use.

There might be a way to automate clicking the Save Draft button with an add-on.

Or you could consider a general purpose form-input-saving add-on such as the following (I haven't tried it myself): Lazarus: Form Recovery.
