[Win 10] A few days ago something happened with Firefox. A message appeared saying "sorry - error". Anyway, I had to rebuild the whole thing. But, the little house symbol for the Homepage Tab is missing. It isn't even available where the choices for Menu Bar appear. I did not cause this problem. My older pc, also Win 10 is perfectly O.K. Any "Help" just brings me back to the older information from 2011.

Hi Guys,

I have using Mozilla Thunderbird for many many years and just now transfer everything to my new laptop including the email data.

So, on this new laptop everytime I compose email (new message), there is dark grey frame surrounding the "to-cc-subject" box, which is no other conflict on that, but since I already using this email provider since long time ago, this new "phenomenon" is annoying me because I know it should not be there.

I though it is appeared because I change the font windows setting on the first setup and the font setting in Thunderbird option, but even I have change it back, this dark grey frame still there.

Please look at the screen shot enclosed.

Are you guys have this experienced before and has any solution to remove it?

Thanks.

Robby

I have looked at the FAQ for this subject and I suspect I am out of luck. I believe Tbird automatically backs up data and stores it in a "profile" file. As I was trying to save documents etc. on my old PC with a view to selling it I encountered a serious problem which caused me to take it in for repair. The shop reported a damaged drive and have saved whatever data they could before returning the old hard drive. I now have a new PC, have installed TBird from the internet but as I was not able to save the original profile, I have lost all of the folders with saved emails. Is there any way to recover that information? Presumably it's still saved somewhere under my profile? I would be grateful for any advice about that.

In most standard Windows applications, the title bar and tab colour follows the default Windows settings, e.g. (in my case) the title bar and tab colour of active application windows is blue. This is true even in Thunderbird. Since FF 89, title bar and tabs are something between white and light gray, which is extremely user-un-friendly. FF developer team should return to the previous colour scheme. Yes, I know the circumstances of free software but this is NO excuse to alienate millions of users. Developers that change fully functionable software just, well, just to CHANGE it should consider that they are doing WRONG. Could anyone tell them? I am just user, not developer and I am not willing to learn developer tools like BugZilla just for this simple guiding principle.

Filters would be a lot easier to handle if you could put more than one result for the same condition on the same line instead of just one per line. Right now, if you have a lot of conditions it makes it clunky and takes almost the whole screen when adding or modifying a filter, it's also a pain when trying to change,add or remove a filter condition. It would take less space and less lines if you could add an (Or) and simply put it on the same line. Could use a function to easily 'backup Emails as well as Users' instead of backing up whole directories and sub directories, it's not very efficient and user friendly. Furthermore, had to reinstall Thunderbird 91 more than 2 times to get the filters working like I wanted to. I used Foxmail for years and wanted to give Thunderbird a try, I really like the interface but some things are driving me off like I mentionned above. I suggest you take a look at Foxmail to see how the features are implemented and use those ideas to make Thunderbird more practical and user friendly. I'm using windows 10 22h2.

I beleive it's a great software but it has to be refined a bit more.

You guy's are doing a great job. I look forward migrating to Thunderbird as soon as some issues are handled and it's more stable and getrid of Foxmail for good.

Thunderbird occasionally attach the incorrect file if using drag and drop

Hi there,

I was using Thunderbird 32 bit version 78.12.0. So I always receive emails from one department, then I must attach the PDF file from that email to another email for our clients. Normally I must save the attachment to my computer first, then on the email to my client I attach the file from my computer. BUT, being lazy as I am... I decide not to save the file to my computer, but instead I drag and drop the file from received email... to the new email window which I already prepared for my client.

To my suprise, between the last 3 months (and I do this daily for about 5 to 10 emails), I received total 6 respond from my various clients that I wrongfully attach the file. When I check the send folder, I found my email was attached with the correct file name. But when I open the PDF file, it contain the different file (the PDF which used to be send to another client). I checked my inbox, and found that I received the email with correct PDF name and also correct content.

6 cases from about 750 emails sound like a minority report, but this is wrong and dangerously for my business. Therefore I tried to re-produce the error, and here is my finding so far: - If those wrong email I do the drag and drop once more... the sent email will keep mistakenly attach the same file (correct name, but consistently using the wrong content). - If I create new mail, to the same destination address, with the different subject, then I do drag and drop once more, the attachment is correct. - The incorrect content were randomly picked by the Thunderbird (?), sometimes it's from the nearest attachment in the same date, or a day before... but sometime from 5 months ago. - I've not use any add on at all (never install any add-on, and I've checked the add on window is empty).

Please kindly help me about this? Thank you Stan

There are many questions and a few answers but none provides a real solution. I want to increase ONLY the font size in the message list.

layout.css.devPixelsPerPx increases the size of everything: buttons, fonts, etc. This is not a solution to this problem.

The other solution proposed to add * { font-size: 24px !important; } to the userChrome.css is also not a solution because it increases the font size everywhere.

So how can the font size of the different panes be controlled separately?

The 5 star rating system woks fine with Amizon and other sites. I am also using Norton 360 if that makes a difference. Any solutions?
