I found an archived solution to this from two years ago, but it isn't relevant to and didn't work in Thunderbird 78.10.1, which I have. I need to reorder accounts, putting them together at the top of the various folders, and then do some changing of folder positions from strictly alphabetical to a more useful means of organization.

Can I trust the permissions section of an extension? If Firefox says an extension only has access to a single website, can I trust it or can an extension installed from the official website go rogue anytime and have access to any site I go to? I mainly use Firefox but I don't have the confidence to install so many add-ons because there's no indication that it's currently accessing the site or not. about:performance don't always tell the whole story and a working extension can not show itself there.

Other browsers can set which site has an extension can have access to. You also have a clear indication that it's currently ON by hovering at the extension icon where a "Has access to this site" message will appear. Hope we can have something like that in Firefox soon.

Can we maybe add a show once option or similar, in my case I use Tabliss which could also be the culprit -- but it seems to me disabling this notification should be an option or even better, have it actually show once.

Hi there,

I was wondering for the past few months if there is maybe someone at Firefox DEV/UI team who so much hates the Close multiple tabs menu item, that slowly but surely is getting to disappear?

  1. In the good ol days there was a separate menu item Close Tabs To The Right under the tab right click menu. Which was very useful and I used it a lot.
  2. Then this developer/designer from above, or some political committee decided that to remove that one and to put it as a submenu under a new menu item Close Multiple Tabs. That was outrageous, but I said well, maybe they have some weird reason behind this change so I should probably get used to the new version. In the end the Close Tabs To The Right menu item was still first in the list.
  3. Then since last week or two, I realized that this evil entity above decided to set the Close Tabs To The Right to be the second one in the list under the submenu! And this is too much! I've made like countless mistakes of closing the very important tabs on the left for the past few days by just wrongly assuming I'l clicking the right submenu item.

So guys and gals or aliens or whatever you are, what are you trying to do? Ruin the browser on purpose?

I'm using the Firefox for decades as my main browser, but it is getting worst and worst with every new release. And the reasons to still stay with it are diminishing. Which is sad...

Hello..............when I open a new Firefox browser tab, I see the heading Top Sites and a selection of eight links, most of them to the websites that I use frequently.

Needing 12 rather than eight, I found the facility to select a second row. But the second row also has eight links and some of them are not wanted.

Please tell me how I can select 12 links and stop at that number. If I right click the three dots in the top right corner of one of the unwanted links and then select Dismiss, another unwanted link replaces it.

I know this is a simple problem but it has defeated me. Please help.

And thank you..................Richard

Dear Firefox support.

Hi, I'd like to change a default shortcut. I'd like to use Ctrl + Shift + N to open a private browser window. The default shortcut is Ctrl + Shift + P, but in every other browser it is Ctrl + Shift + N, so I'd like that also in Firefox that shortcut would be Ctrl + Shift + N. Is there a way to change it?

Thanks for the support.

I really like the global search feature and use it often. I also have maybe 20-25 saved searches that run automatically.

The problem that I'm having is that while you can specify many parameters in a search and choose from many types (From, To, Has Attachments, Date on/after/before, body contents, etc.), you can only AND all the parameters or OR them all. For ideal function on some of my searches I'd need A && B && (C || D), for example, but there's no way to indicate that.

I thought a workaround might be to create one saved search with all the ANDs and point a second saved search at that one using the ORs, but I can't point one search at another.

Is there a way to do this? Is there a search plugin with more flexibility on the search definition, and if so, can it create saved searches?

I've been using Thundbird forever, but as a POP3 client. A recent file corruption and subsequent loss of a large catalog of emails I've been saving for well over a decade has lead me to transition to IMAP.

I like to empty my trash in thunderbird frequently (I had it set to empty on close before, and even then I'd empty if I had a large amount of emails sitting in the trash) as it makes it easier to find something I may have recently trashed but haven't emptied yet. I like having the trash in Gmail stay for the normal 30 days though as somewhat of a backup, in case I have to reference anything I've trashed and emptied from Thunderbird.

Is it possible, in IMAP mode, to empty the trash on thunderbird without also emptying the trash in Gmail? In other words, I want to delete them from my computer, but not the server, and let the server auto-delete them after 30 days as normal.
