Hello,

Im using bookmarks a lot, saved in folders and subfolders. When I hit bookmark star to save a web page, I want to save it into exact folder. These folders are expanded by default and is not possible for me to find the right one among all of them. Can bookmarks be collapsed by default?

Thx, Matej

Why does alternate search engine select ("This time, search with...") require extra action?

I constantly use the "This time, search with..." option in the search bar to switch between my default search engine and others on the fly. Since version 84.0, this now needlessly prepends the query with a search engine label and requires an additional action to complete (either a return or click of search arrow).

I feel as though the clicking of any of those alternate search engine options is enough to establish intent by the user and should act as a submit button for the request. The only "advantage" this new functionality allows for is a select-first, query-after approach, which I find uncommon.

My request:

1) Return previous behavior. 2) Implement hybrid -- Search-first, query-after produces label; query first, search after submits. 3) Provide an option in the settings to toggle behavior.

Hope someone can help/shed some light on the change,

Thanks

I am trying to load an image from a phone's camera into an image tag. It works great everywhere except Firefox on Android. Below is a simple example that produces the issue. All I want to do is take a picture using the camera and load it into the img tag to display. Works great in Chrome and even Samsungs dopey internet browser. Just not in Firefox. The image does not display. What am I doing wrong? window.onload = function() {

  let imgInput = document.querySelector('#imageInput');
  imgInput.addEventListener('change',function(event) {
     var files = this.files;
     var fr = new FileReader();
     fr.onload = function () {
        document.getElementById('image').src = fr.result;
     }
     fr.readAsDataURL(files[0]);
  });

}; ... <input id="imageInput" type="file" accept="image/*" capture="camera">

Unified Inbox is not, why not? Globalized inbox is like a lunch of alphabet soup, in three bowls when you're allergic to vowels, why is this?

W 10, Gmail IMAP and a 365 IMAP. Unified inbox puts to inboxes under each other with the Local folder inbox below that, it's empty nothing was unified, this is useless.

Creating a Global inbox works for inbox only under Local Folders at the bottom but it is mixed in with the other local folders some of which cannot be globalized, one of which is called Inbox, there are two inboxes and the only one you can delete is the one you want, err just created as a matter of fact.

They can't even be moved to reorganize for a more prominent position. In that you cannot globalize all the folders you want down there, you cannot collapse the folders in the above two accounts without losing access to the folders that cannot be globalized. The frustration and time consumed on one this is worse than useless, what gives? The left side bar has been a mess for years, fix it. If you want a donation finish the product, do the work man, plain and simple.

It seems that Thunderbird converts all incoming messages with .ics attachments to meeting invites. As a result, any other content in the incoming email (or email chain) is hidden and I cannot see it. How do I prevent Thunderbird from hiding email content when an incoming email has an .ics attachment? Thanks!

I've been using MyPhoneExplorer for years to keep my Android phone in sync with my Thunderbird address book and calendar.

With the recent upgrade to 78.5.0 (32-bit), the contact sync no longer works between the two, failing with

"Loading entries from Thunderbird failed" (See image attached).

The first time I ran MyPhoneExplorer a new plugin did get loaded for Thunderbird but I didn't note the name.

I've tried restarts and reboots, making sure Thunderbird was launched first, and even running MyPhoneExplorer with admin privileges. I'm running Version 1.8.15 of MyPhoneExplorer on a W10 64 bit platform.

I need to roll back Thunderbird until this is corrected so any tips on reverting to a previous version of Thunderbird would also be appreciated.

Hello, I managed to increase the font size shown in the Inbox and menus using your online support, thank you. Unfortunately, increasing the font size using "pixels" in the config editor, it also increases the spacing between the messages in the Inbox. This is unfortunate because I now see less messages unnecessarily. Is there a way to increase the font without increasing the spacing? Many thanks in advance.

I want my home button to take me to a page that I use most of the time but I want my startup page to be something more neutral like a search engine or about:blank. Or if there was a feature in Customize Firefox that let you add your own button that directed you to a web page that would be cool too!

Hi, since updating to version 78 forwarding a message from a newsgroup is changed. It is now set standard forward it as a new newsgroup message... it was forwarding by mail. Is there a possibility to change it back? I only use it for forwarding messages by e-mail, so this change is really anoying and useless in my opinion.

Hello. I am currently using Thunderbird 78.5.1 (64-bit). My "Body" filters no longer work. I had been using them for years without a problem to filter-out mail with spammy body content. I have scoured the Internet for a solution, but none has worked for me.

PS: I have unsuccessfully tried both the built-in "Body" filter and a customized filter that I named "Body."

Thanks in advance for your help!

So, FireFox has a built-in "dark theme". But at the moment, I think it is not finished. The fact is that, with the "dark theme" enabled, the background of the FF service pages (for example: "Blank Page", "Preferences") are white. In this regard, my question is, will this be fixed in future releases?

The second question is about "dark themes" on web sites. Web developers have finally figured out how to present their site in a user-defined color theme. For example - Youtube. If I open a Youtube page not with FireFox, it will define a "device theme" and show the page not in "white" but in "dark" version. It is very comfortable. Unfortunately, it doesn't work in FF. Can FireFox be taught to tell the site the color theme of the device?

Using Thunderbird 84.0b2 the WeTransfer filelink provider in Options/Composition has a triangle exclamation icon with the tooltip "This account has not been configured yet", but there is nowhere that I can find to configure my WeTransfer account for the provider. All that appears on the right are links to WeTransfer privacy policy and to a wepresent story.

In the attachments for my email, there is no "convert to WeTransfer" option.

I have an account on WeTranfer but I need to know how to configure the WeTransfer filelink provider to connect it to my account on WeTransfer.

Is this just an issue for the Thunderbird beta channel? I get that beta software doesn't always work the way releases do.

After enabling gfx.webrender.all (value true in about:config), there is no more tearing in web sites like google street view. But all my extensions, while working, offer an empty dialog pop-uo when I left click on their icon in Firefox main bar. UBlock origin, HTTPS Everywhere, Privacy Badger or Joplin all act with the same behavior. See screenshot. If I disable gfx.webrender.all all my extensions dialogs are back.

I had gfx.webrender.all set to true before version 83.0 of Firefox and my extensions were working fine.

With V78 & win 8.1 it seems that the font size I set up in an email gets changed when I send the email, and when I look at the sent messsage - normally larger.

I have options/general/language&appearance/advanced set to century gothic &14

but under fonts & encodings/proportional the only options are Serif and Sans Serif - all other settings have a drop down box allowing access to all the font selections.

Is there any option I am overlooking to have the fonts of the sent (and recieved) email the same as the one i see when i compose the email?
