Good Morning

Today I had to repair Firefox and after restarting, I felt a strange scrolling sensation, it was not the normal Firefox scrolling, I even thought I had openend the wrong browser...so I went check about:config , and found some values where changed as new default values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 200 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 50

I tought it was me the problem so I installed an older version of Firefox (80.0) in order to compare, and found a normal scrolling and those values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 400 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 200

I think this is a mistake from devs, if i wanted to have horrible scrolling, I could just use Edge instead of Firefox, could you please bring the original scrolling back to Firefox?

Thanks

Firefox for Linux, Xubuntu. Recent browser reinstall. The Preferences page now reads "Updates disabled by your system administrator". I'm a home user so I must be the administrator, but I have no recollection or intent to disable updates. How can I re-enable updates? Thank you.

I do not use the majority of keyboard controls in Firefox-- only Ctrl+F. Lately, I've noticed that using Ctrl+I in editor windows also pops up the Page Info window, which I have never used on purpose and am perfectly comfortable accessing via Firefox's menubar.

I have been searching for over an hour, and every Firefox add-on that I can find to fix this problem has been removed.

Ideally, I would like to be able to configure all of my keyboard shortcuts, but practically I will settle for being able to disable Ctrl-B, Ctrl-I, and Ctrl-U.

The new Firefox for Android version 79.0.5, why was it released from Beta with only nine extensions, and no way to search for more?

I know there are a lot of people, who never add a extension. But most of us get one or more extensions. I really like searching for them. I install them one at a time, and test them. If they crash Firefox, I go back and let them know, and they fix it. Also when you go to install a extension, it says which versions of Firefox it is compatible with. As this new version has been in beta for about a year there should be a lot more than nine extensions available for me to test. There should be so many by now that it should have its own search page separate from the old Firefox for Android search page. But you let it come out of beta with only nine recommended extensions, and no search page, and no way for me to install the extensions that I like to use, to test if they will work with the new version. So for now I have to wait for how many updates, before I get a update that has a link to a search page for the new Firefox for Android Extensions. Then I can search for my favorite extensions and find out if they say they are compatible with this version, then I have to test them! you guys are really being slow about this!

Q: Does anyone know if Firefox has maybe re-instated pinch zoom functionality for Mac users?

Or if there is a decent work around available yet?

And if not, anyone have a good answer as to why Firefox overlooked it in their last major update? Seems rather shortsighted to me. Not being able to pinch zoom on my mac trackpad is highly frustrating. It's pretty much a deal breaker, making me want to migrate back to Chrome or elsewhere. Which is sad, because I thought I'd finally escaped Google for browsing.

Thunderbird 78.4.0 updated but the view has changed making it difficult for some Seniors particularly those with visibility issue. The new view has little contrast.

Is there a way to revert the view back to the classic view setup with things like yellow file folder which are in contrast to white background and easy to see for those with visibility issues?

I have been trying to figure out a way to change the font sizes in Thunderbird 78.4.3. None of the "help" works. Font changing extensions are out of date. Help threads point to menu items that aren't there. Can't even find the "config.editor". My eyes just can't handle the small fonts anymore.What can I do?

When will option browser.urlbar.maxRichResults work as it used to?

I want about 30 - i.e. a full screen's-worth of Rich Results. No problem once - not now.

Something is seriously FUBAR when a once-working parameter can be changed - but no longer has any effect.

Nothing to do with Top Sites, I believe. I know how to change the balance of what is offered.

I just want parameter browser.urlbar.maxRichResults to work again.

Just about every addon I use is broken in Thunderbird 78. I went through this once before, and now I'm actually searching for a new solution. In one of the addons I use, the author wrote this below, and I'm on his side. The Thunderbird team needs to be working WITH the addon community (since it's not that great without the addons) instead of disregarding them with every update.

>>>>

TB v68 compatibility note: There is no plan to move the addon to the TB v68 "standards", and here is why: - Mozilla itself has decided not to work on compatibility developments and leave "that" to the addon developers. - Besides the fact Mozilla leaves us doing the "dirty work", they are not even able to provide detailed information about how to make the old addons compatible with their new standards. I mean a relevant guide, not an information note explaining that the addons should be restartless, turned into webextensions and so on, and not even giving an example. - That is not the first time that Mozilla is acting as if addons developers and the community was not important. I have had already several bad experiences in the past when my addons got broken just because Mozilla changed something which used to work without even thinking about compatibility or giving information. - I'm tired of all this, and as i have another real job to afford my bills, i'm not ready to make all that effort for so few consideration.


The afterward addition of signatures in e-mail is apparently not provided, the functionality can not be found anywhere. Therefore, I have crafted this little add-on which adds this function. Just click the right mouse button in a new e-mail and insert the signature.

First you have to create a signature (html or text - no file signaure!), if you would like to have no signature as default then choose "add signature from file" and leave the filename empty! Now no signature is added by default and you have the option to add the signature by right-clicking.

If you need more than one signature please use Signature Switch addon!!

Hi there , I am Kaustubh Gulabrao More. I am using Realme 1 android device with 6gb ram and 128gb rom.

So tried to go with Firefox browser it actually Allow you to watch activity , but when I tried to Join meeting ,I warn with " this meeting doesn't have dial in number and browser doesn't support teams meeting audio"

I hope that developer will definitely find solutions to this problem ...

Thunderbird is giving me notifications from all senders and there doesn't seem to be an option to not get notifications from particular senders - or from things that've been given a rule to go into a different folder.

I only want to be receiving notifications from e-mails that remain in the inbox (or other folders) AFTER filtering rules have been applied.

Is there anything I should be doing within the thunderbird application itself, or is this something that requires an add-on?
