erride Color of Visited Websites since version 69.0.3

Since after version Firefox 69.0.3 32bit, the visited website color can not be altered no matter what variation I try within General - Language and Appears - Color. Background and Text work fine though. I can change the color on the color screen but it has no effect when I have visited websites after a Google search. I pick the color via the rainbox color screen in the Color section.

Being able to change the color for visited website to Red would make my life easier while doing searches to avoid repeatedly going to the same websites previously looked at. Just for your info, I change the colors of the Background to Black, Text to White, and non-visited website to white. I have low vision and it makes it easier on my eyes.

I have this problem on my old Windows 7 with every version upward. I just got a brand new Dell with Windows 10 and it has the exact same problem with both the 32-bit and 64-bit version of 84.0.2. Hence, this is why I have not bothered submitting this issue until I got my Windows 10 unit.

On the Tools - Options - General - Language and Appearance - Color, I have tried both Always Override and Use only with Hight Contrast Theme. Checking and un-checking Use System color and Underline weblinks had no effect. None of these variations had no effect.

The drop-down list with known usernames and passwords extends until below the screen if there is a sufficient number of usernames stored. The funny thing is that the list is scrollable by mouse and arrow (up/down) keys, so it wouldn't be necessary to extend the list that far down. Just until the lower boundary of the current firefox windowwould have been sufficient.

The result is that I can't see (nor select) the usernames that are listed below the screen.

Firefox 75 64 bit on Fedora 32.

I hope this description was clear enough as I'm hesitant to include a screenshot showing all usernames involved on those site.

For anyone who wonders why so many logins: it's a list of email adresses currently in use in a webmail service.


Thanks.

Hello....I have a question out there from 1/16 saying that my Trash folder isn't working. on my gmail accoutn. It disappeared, so I created a Trash folder, but even though I have it 'pointing' to it, nothing goes in there.

I tried renaming it to 'Deletes', but that didn't work either.

I uninstalled and reinstalled TBird, but no luck.

Since Trash and Deletes are useless, I tried deleting them, but now the program won't let me. I suppose that I can drag and drop my trashed msgs into the Trash folder, but I am so used to the old way that I keep 'losing' deleted msgs. I like to keep them for 30 days just in case.

Btw, I also have a Verizon account set up and everything works perfectly with it.

Thank you

Firefox is crashing almost immediately after loading a page. Sometimes it crashes while loading the page, sometimes I can scroll down or click a link, and then it crashes. Biggest issues are on Reddit. I'm able to browse the Firefox support pages with minimal issues (although it has crashed once or twice).

Crash happens in Safe Mode. (I'm in safe mode right now and it just crashed) I did a FULL clean install about a week ago. (actually did it twice just to be sure)

Not sure what info you need in order to help, but here is some of the crash report from the latest one today.

On my laptop (Macbook Pro 2020; macOS 10.15.7), in Thunderbird (78.6.1; 64-bit), within only one email account (IMAP; server type = owl), the messages I see in every folder for that account disappear every time Thunderbird checks for new messages. (I have changed the time value to verify this.) This of course just started happening today, has worked fine for many months before this (even last night), and I recall no changes having been made to trigger this.

I can see the messages in any given folder again "if" I click on another folder and then back on that original folder. It is as if Thunderbird is forced to reload/re-show them. Or, I can right click on any folder, choose Properties and then click Repair Folder. This, too will restore visibility to the messages, until Thunderbird checks for new messages; whereupon, they all disappear again.

In order to give you wonderfully helpful people more information, just in case...

  • I did add this email account in Thunderbird using the Owl for Exchange extension, which has worked great. I do not know if it may be the culprit. Restarting Thunderbird in Safe Mode cannot verify this operation since the account is not even available when doing so.
  • I have multiple email accounts created in Thunderbird, even other IMAP accounts, and this only happens with one account.
  • This same problem email account does not have issues online or through my phone.
  • I noticed that this problem email account is the only one that will not allow me to Compact Folders. That option is greyed out for some reason.
  • If I have unread messages in my Inbox, then the Inbox folder still indicates as much, even though the messages are not visible until I re-jog things.

I am currently out of ideas.

I just changed my laptop, and reinstalled Thunderbird on the new one. I'd like now to migrate my contacts list from my former computer to the new one. How can I manage this ? I found on Thunderbird website how to migrate profile, but it didn't work... Many thanks in advance for your answer, that I'm looking forward to reading.

I have configured FF to block all cookies under "Browser Privacy" the custom setting allows "Choose which trackers and scripts to block. and I selected "all cookies". Knowing that all cookies will be blocked I logged into office 365 and allowed manually cookies through "view page info" I then selected "set cookies" to allow expecting full access to office 365 mail, but this did not occur. What happened is I logged into office 365 and could see the icons and my login name but could not read the mail.

Office 365 gave the message "we couldn't sign you in please try again" yet I could see my log in name and the office 365 icons for mail, calendar etc.. just not the actual data. If I allow cookies in Browser privacy (which i take it allows cookies always) it woks.

I bring this up because it seems like something is missing in cookies that is not represented in FF.What is the difference between browser privacy cookies and allowing it through view page permissions? Can anyone offer an explanation?

Addon windows in the Overflow menu are limited or fixed in size and therefore some addon functions are inaccessible or hard to use. Usually I would just middle-click to scroll sideways but with some addons this is not possible (eg. LastPass only shows the "Upgrade to Premium" part and nothing else if it is in the Overflow menu). I love the minimalist black&white look of my current Firefox setup so having the red LastPass icon outside of the Overflow menu would ruin that. Other addons just look bad with all that extra white space, like Windscribe (which should have a very small Addon window).

Is there some way to change the size of the addon window or report this as a bug to have it behave like addons should?
