Hello, hope you are all right. I dowloaded recently thunderbird and it has worked great for me but the only problem is that I can't set up my university account. I know is a mail based on gmail but it has a differente domain (@uc.cl) and I really don't know how to add it to thunderbird. I know is maybe an easy thing to do but I really can't set it up. When I try to add it, it follows the next message "Authentication failed. Either the entered credentials are incorrect or a separate username is required for logging in". I've checked the credentials and writing my windows domain login, but nothing works. Hope you can help me. Thanks!

I am using Firefox 81.0.2 (64 bit) on a Windows 10 computer. A couple days ago, my address bar started showing up as yellow with grey text. (Admittedly, I was in the options before that and likely did it to myself). But now I can not read what is in the URL/Address bar without highlighting everything. I have been looking ever since then to somehow reset it back to it's default view, but can't seem to find where to do that. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thank you

Scott

I discovered that E-mail suddenly from my sister started to go directly to the junk file. I've moved them to the inbox several times, but each time within a few minutes the same E-mails disappear from inbox and go back to junk file. Once in the junk file they become marked as "not read" even though they were read. This only started in early Oct and I haven't notice it occurring with E-mail from anyone else...yet. I fear this will happen with any E-mail she sends and could start happening with E-mail from other people. Why is this happening and how can I make it stop? Can someone please help me? Thank you.

Hi,

When I go to Facebook on Mozilla and try to use the messenger app to run a video call (using microsoft surface running windows 10), the default camera is my rear facing camera. There is no toggle i can see to switch it to the front camera. I cannot do so in window settings and have spoken with Microsoft support which tells me to call mozilla support. I cannot do it in any of the facebook settings either. I cannot do it with camera settings in mozilla either. I can use the front camera successfully from chrome! I can from Edge! I can from Zoom. I like mozilla and want to keep using it but if I can't resolve this I will likely just switch to chrome permanently. Please let me know how to select the default camera in mozilla. Thank you.

Since there is no about:config now, is there another way? I need it to avoid all the extremely annoying app suggestions. Reddit and Facebook won't even allow me to use parts of their sites just because I have a mobile User-Agent string.

I want to remove or set my home screen to something else other than the Firefox default.

I've managed to remove everything from the default home screen, which is a start. But I don't want a home screen at all.

Ideally, Firefox would just resume as it was the previous time it opened. That's how it worked until a recent update.

Hi, I've got several mailboxes in my TB. Is there any option, addons to have a overview on the all mailboxes on one page? For instance show me in every mailbox the 10 recent mails or recent not read messages. I've found the addon Mail Summaries but it is not what I am looking for. Please share anything regarding this topic :) Greetings, Mirek

When I want to skip a video in a youtube playlist, skip to the next track or to the previous one in spotify etc, my keyboard media keys don't work. The play/pause button works and so does volume up/down. The overlay appears all the time, but the buttons for forward/ backward are greyed out. Sometimes a song stops when I hold forward for a few seconds.

Another guy had this problems 7 years ago, the solution was to start firefox in safe mode. I did that. Didn'T work. I also disabled hardware acceleration, didn'T work.

Hello! The audio output of Firefox is always set to the speakers of my laptop. I can't hear videos or music via my headphones or another audio device (Steinberg UR 22 mkII). When I take other browsers or spotify, the audio output is allways on the plugged in devices. But with Firefox I only hear it through laptop speakers.

Hi! Does anybody know how to disable browser closing by ctrl+q shortcut? It is too close to ctrl+w and sometimes I close the whole browser instead of one tab. Moreover it is really useless and stupid feature since I have alt+f4. Why I need another shortcut which do the same stuff? And why developers ignore this issue which was reported on several forums? I tried install extension which disable it but it doesn't work for me.
