which means (mail from 200@thunderbird.com) OR [(mail from 200@thunderbird.com) AND (mail send by 100@thunderbird.com)] should be displayed in the search file "from & to 200@"

I have an add-on which is installed from the public add-on store (?). This add-on works quite good.

Nevertheless I made some tiny adjustments in the source to fullfill my needs. I can manually load the file from the add-on manager which works as well.

But as soon as I do one of the two task:

  • restart the whole computer (or logout and login)
  • Check for Update

the manually loaded xpi is gone. It is only the public one available.

==> How to have the manually adapted xpi loaded all the time and the public one not any more?

TB downloading of headers vs. bodies and/or attachements

According to this link, for *unsynchronized* message, the message body remains on the server until the user clicks on the message in TB's message list: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/imap-synchronization#w_synchronization

TB has a Message Synchronizing setting "Keep messages in all folders for this account on this computer", with "Avanced" settings to "Download" "for offline use" on the basis of individual folders. However, I can' find a setting to control whether TB downloads (i) just the headers; or (ii) headers, bodies, and/or attachments.

(1) Is it the case that TB will *always* download just headers until users click on it in the message list, at which point it becomes a "synchronized message" (as defined above) and locally retained in its entirety?

(2) If so, is there a way to have TB always download messages+body+attachments without having to click each one?

(3) On the other end of the bandwidth usage spectrum, is there a way to have TB not even download headers (say, upon startup) until the user actually enters the folder for viewing?

Filters - How to distinguish between email address and name?

One of the reasons I wanted to move away from Outlook was that it was unable to tell the difference between an email address, a name, and the combination of both. Now it seems I may have stumbled upon exactly the same problem in Thunderbird.

I try to use Filters to distinguish difference types of email (for the record, I'm setting up a heap of Tags with different colours, and letting auto-filters assign appropriate Tags -- poor-man's colour highlighting).

I had a Filter that applied to messages with the "From" field equal to "mailer@company.com" (not their real name).

However, they changed their mail-out address to "noreply@company.com", so I had to change the filter. Rather than risking missing important emails again (I missed a few), I tried changing the filter to the "From" field *contains* "@company.com" -- and now the filter fails to hit *any* of their mail, when run.

I suspect Thunderbird is only attempting to match the "name" in the "From" field, rather than both "name" and "email address", or "email address" alone. In this case, the full "From" field is "Parent Company <noreply@company.com>".

First question is, is there something else I could try?

Second question is, why can't I specify which part of the "To", "From", "Cc" and "Bcc" fields are searched?!

Seriously, this is a major design flaw (that has been part of Outlook forever). It can be **really** important to distinguish email addresses from Contact Names, and from names accompanying email addresses. That's especially true in a case like mine where I'm working with partial matches. It's not hard to formulate a scenario where an attempt to match just a name also started matching spurious email addresses -- and especially vice versa!

Anyway, I hope someone can help me out. Thank you.

Firefox Screenshots not scaling correctly when doing partial screen captures

Hello, I have searched for an answer to this and didn't find one so I am posting. If this has been answered, kindly post the link to the solution :)

The problem is with Firefox screenshots. Full page shots are working fine, but "Save Visible" and custom selections using the outlining tool are scaling at 71% instead of 100%. So, I'm only getting some of what I want.

How do I fix this? I didn't see anything in config about this.

Pic is an example of what I'm talking about.

I installed Lorex security cameras recently. I can access the DVR support box from Firefox and do admin stuff, but I can see no images from the cameras. Instead of images I get the message:

  Your browser does not support this function!

This appears in the sub-window that the current image should appear in. I have installed ffmpeg and gstreamer (libav, ugly and unrar) - all to no avail. I am running Fedora 33 currently patched fully (yesterday).

I find it hard to believe that these images cannot be seen in Firefox. What am I doing wrong????

When I delete an email on my iphone or Thunderbird, I want the email to automatically delete in the other format.

For example, if I delete an email to Trash on my IPhone, I want it to automatically delete to Trash in Thunderbird. Also, if i delete an email while on Thunderbird, I want the same email to delete to Trash on my IPhone.

How do I set the above up?

So i want to add a custom search engine (Startpage specifically) in Firefox Android. After adding I notice Firefox didn't get the icon of the search engine, but using a generated icon (simply a letter 's') which is kind of ugly considering I want to use it as default search engine and the icon would stay in my new tab.

Is there any way to add the icon, or other way to solve my problem?

Hi. Yesterday, I browsed thru my Firefox and/or GMail settings, and removed headers and footers from my printed copies of emails and web pages. Which is fine. However, at the same time I must have mistakenly changed a setting so that my print-ready version of an email or web page always displays in B & W, not in color. Although it will print in color, depending on how I have my HP printer set. How can I change that back so the print-ready Print Preview copy displays pics, etc. in color? I forgot what I did. Aarrgh! Please help! Thanks. John Darin

There is no Thunderbird folder in the library, so no Profile folder where the files are supposed to live. Help please.
