Address autocomplete not working for contacts on Exchange server

Hello,

I use Thunderbird with the extensions "TbSync" and "Provider for Exchange ActiveSync" in order to communicate with our email server at work.

When composing a new email, I used to be able to start typing a person's name or email address and hit Tab and their email address would autocomplete (if multiple addresses were found for the name, a drop-down list would show). To do so, the autocomplete would look not only in the people I had already sent an email to at some point, but would also go through all the available addresses on our server. I loved this feature!

Since one update last year, the feature was suddenly gone - now it only goes through the people, that I have already sent emails to. I've searched for a solution multiple times, but have found nothing.

I would be really happy, if someone could help me fix this :)

Best regards!

I have just migrated from Windows 10 to 11 following purchase of a new PC.

I receive daily messages from two group. Both appear to paste a page into the circular. In my old set up, these pages fitted the width of the screen. Now they use about one-third of the width.

How do I increase the size of the page to make it easier to read? I could read in browser, but would prefer to read in the email.

Image attached.

Without my doing anything, firefox has decided to download pdf files in its own html. I have changed the default to adobe rather than ask. When I open the downloaded file in adobe it comes down as an adobe file, I tell it to save as an adobe pdf, but it appears in file manager and then opens in firefox html. Worse, it, whatever it is, has gone into file manager and changed adobe pdf files, some of which have been sitting on my hard drive for some years, into firefox html files. How do I rectify this please?

Issues with extension when "Always use private browsing mode" is activated

This is what my environment looks like: I am using Firefox (version 109.0) on Ubuntu (version 22.04.1). I installed the 1password extension for Firefox (version 2.5.1). I have allowed the 1Password extension to "Run in Private Windows" (from the Firefox Add-ons Manager).

Description of my issue: In Firefox, there is a Privacy&Security setting that allows you to "Always use private browsing mode". When this setting is enabled, the 1Password extension does not work at all (even if I allowed it to run in private windows). That is, every time I click on the 1Password icon in my browser, an empty browser tab shows up, and nothing more. Instead, if I disable that setting, the extension works correctly.

Overflow menu for apps is empty and will only let me drag Firefox defaults to it such as settings. Dragging apps to it is impossible. It "is" possible to pin items by using the Chrome puzzle piece..

I have used Thunderbird for years and recently it has started arbitrarily changing folders to threaded view.

The process of using mailnews.default_view_flags for new folders is ok, until Thunderbird randomly changes them back to threaded view. The process of column header on the far right to change a folder back to threaded view works for a while, until Thunderbird randomly changes them back to threaded view. The process of using shift select and then the column header on the far right to change folders back to threaded view works for a while, until Thunderbird randomly changes them back to threaded view.

The question is two fold: 1) Why does Thunderbird arbitrarily change folders to threaded view? 2) How can Thunderbird be stopped from arbitrarily changing folders to threaded view?

The latest update added persistent "More Tools" and "Extensions" icons on the top right of Firefox. Usually, by clicking "Customize Toolbar" I could remove any annoying icon that I don't want to persistently see, but it would seem that Firefox DISABLED the ability to remove these annoying icons. Please let us continue to customize our own toolbars and allow us to remove unwanted icons.

Hi All,

I'm trying to modify various userChrome.css attributes of Tabs in Firefox 109.

However, code that worked in FF 88 is seemingly no longer working.

Is the below code outdated?

I would also like to change the appearance of #TabsToolbar from translucent to either a solid color or a background image. Is that possible? Right now, you can see icons from the desktop through the Tab bar, and there appears to be a strange curved, black overlay colorizing it. See attached screenshot.

Thanks for any input!

/* MISCELLANEOUS TAB ATTRIBUTES */

  1. TabsToolbar { /* tab bar */
 -moz-box-ordinal-group: 3 !important;
 padding-top: 0 !important;
 padding-bottom: 0 !important;
 height: 25px !important;
 background-image: url("bkmr_back.gif");
 border-top: 1px solid #afc0d2 !important;
 border-bottom: 1px solid #8698aa !important;

}

/* Change the color of selected tab */

   .tab-background[selected="true"] {
       background-attachment: none!important;
       background-image: none!important;

background-color: #eef5fc !important; /* background color only, not border */ }

/* Change text attributes of selected tab #8698aa to match bottom tabstoolbar line color */

  1. TabsToolbar .tabbrowser-tab[selected] {

font-weight: 800 !important; color: #000 !important;

       border-top: 1px solid #8698aa !important;
       border-left: 1px solid #8698aa !important;
       border-right: 1px solid #8698aa !important;

}

  1. TabsToolbar .tabbrowser-tab:not([selected]) {

font-weight: 600 !important; color: #000 !important; /* non-selected tab text color */

       border-top: 1px solid #afc0d2 !important;
       border-left: 1px solid #afc0d2 !important;
       border-right: 1px solid #afc0d2 !important;

}

/* Change the color of non-selected tab */

  .tab-background:not([selected]) {

Hello, in Firefox browser, my organization has always blocked all extensions except for ones we allow through OMA-URI ./Device/Vendor/MSFT/Policy/Config/Firefox~Policy~firefox~Extensions/ExtensionSettings.

About a month ago this stopped working and our end users can now install any extension in the Firefox browser that they choose, without approval, creating a security risk.

When checking in about:policies, there is a policy error: Unable to parse JSON for ExtensionSettings. We have checked with Microsoft Intune support and they verified that the policy looks to be configured and targeted correctly.

Here is a snippet of our JSON, this is a test policy where microsoft support had us remove "about:addons" from the 'install sources'. Both test and production policies are not working.

<enabled/>
<data id="ExtensionSettings" value='
{
    "*": {
        "blocked_install_message": "Contact Service Line",
        "install_sources": ["https://addons.mozilla.org/*"],
        "installation_mode": "blocked",
        "allowed_types": ["extension"]
    },
    "cloudmetering@snowsoftware.com": {

    },
    "jid1-5AULKXLKGyjuLQ@jetpack": {

    },
    "abb@amazon.com": {

    },
    "jid1-93WyvpgvxzGATw@jetpack": {

    },

Is this a bug? Or something wrong with our configuration? Has firefox changed the requirements of the extensionsettings OMA-URI?

Thanks for any help in advance.

Hi there. I use Firefox in macOS, and I always have multiple windows in different Desktops.

As you know, Desktops in mac are numbered, and each App in the Dock has the option "Assign to" a particular Desktop number or Desktops in Display X. But that is too limiting, because all windows appear in the same Desktop. I'd like an option or Extension in Firefox that allows me to set each Firefox window to a particular Desktop number, so that I don't have to re-organize all my windows every time I restart Firefox.

Does anyone know if there is anything like that?

Good morning, In the past, I have successfully used the "recoverDeletedMessages" add-on developed by Paolo Kaosmos developer's page for some clients. The problem is that with Mozilla's migration to Webextensions, the author has decided to abandon the development of his plugins. I have not found any plugin that can replace it, has anyone thought of rewriting it? For those who are not familiar, the plugin in question allows you to recover deleted messages (from non-compacted folders) by setting the X-Mozilla-Status header to 0 (unread message) in deleted messages.

I cannot use the Firefox efficiently on my Kindle Fire HD 10's without going into Desktop Mode each time. As I use it many times a day, but must start & restart it due to other Kindle limitations, it is a chore and takes a lot of time. I want to be able to start Firefox on my KIndle's in Desktop Mode when I start it each time, rather than having to do it manually several times each day. I am somewhat disabled and cannot easily control my hands (fingers) so it takes a LOT of time to do so manually. This message even took several minutes to type!

Hopefully someone can help me.

God Bless & Health to you and yours
