Hello

I had some problems in my PC overall that I had to do the 'Reset' but with the option 'Keep my files'. Consequently, all programs are deleted or uninstalled, obviously including Firefox.

I did not have my account synced on the PC, so would there possibly be any way to get to recover the browsing history or that's it.

I also had one notebook add-on, but I believe it is impossible as long as the account is not synced. Just asking in case there may be a chance.

Any hope about the browsing history anyway ?

I have Bing set up as my default search engine and it has worked fine for years. Now all of the sudden, any search I request, whether in the address bar or search window is completed by Yahoo. I have tried everything I know to try to fix this but to no avail. Also, when I click the Add-ons button to check for add -ons that I perhaps placed in error, a new blank tab opens up. I'm wondering if I should just delete Firefox and then re-install it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'd like to hide the title bar in Firefox. It takes up valuable on-screen real-estate, and doesn't really serve a purpose (other than showing a web page's full title, which I'm not interested in anyway).

In this screenshot, I have Firefox on the left, and Brave on the right. Now, I know it's only about 30 or so vertical pixels, but the title bar in Firefox is taking up a lot of space that could be used for actual web content.

Is there any way to disable this top bar? Or is it baked into the actual program itself?

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.

I just upgraded to 78.3.2, and the message list panel now has significantly more spacing, less denstiy. There is more whitespace between lines. And there does not appear to be any option to reset this back to the previous compact view?

EDIT: Adding a note about an additional issue with the message list panel that is discussed in this thread... Prior to v78.3.2, a message/line in the message list pane would not become highlighted until I *clicked* on it. Now, whenever I just pass my mouse over the list, the message under the mouse becomes highlighted (and the last message(s) *selected* also remains highlighted). This results in two or more non-adjacent messages being highlighted in the same way at the same time. This is a poor usability experience and dangerous design that has caused me to perform operations on unintended messages multiple times, even nearly accidentally deleting messages. This usability degradation creates a risk of data loss.

I went back to a previous version of Thunderbird so that I could use the add-on Calendar Tweaks which has capabilities not in Thunderbird and will not work with the latest version. All is well but I am constantly nagged about downloading the latest update. I have read a number of posts to try and stop the nag and the consensus is to do the following

   Type 'Run' in search and select 'Run' app
   In 'Run' app type regedit and click on Ok
   HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies
   Create new subkey called 'Mozilla'
   HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Mozilla
   Then create new subkey called 'Thunderbird'
   HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Mozilla\Thunderbird
   On the right, create a new 32-Bit DWORD value DisableAppUpdate.
   Note: Even if you are running 64-bit Windows you must still create a 32-bit DWORD value.
   Set its value to 1. 

The problem is that when I try and create the subkey Mozilla under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies, the subkey doesn't go under 'Policies' but under 'Microsoft'. Even though I have selected HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies, and hit NEW with this selected, the subkey is attached to Microsoft, not Policies.

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.

(And also not related but yeah, how do I access the add-ons store? The button to access it has been removed from the add-ons ui apperantly, and uh, if I access it by the website itself, will it still works? Seems like firefox has been downgrading a lot with those updates, removing the add search engine button, the add-ons store button, etc)

I do NOT want this to be the case. How do I fix this? I want to end up with all my old addresses in the Comcast account and no addresses in the Gmail account (so I can start building a separate Gmail account address book)

Suddenly it says "The messages you have deleted can be purged from disk" every time I move emails. Every stupid time. Probably a very useful feature but just not how I have used things for the last decade or so. At first all I wanted to say was 'thank you but no thank you" Now it is getting beyond a joke. How do I get rid of this without deleting any emails? Yes I know they are nominally deleted but I've use that as an easy way to archive them and then copy them off as a history trail. All my accounts are carefully set to "Don't delete any messages". I like that. I mean it.

I just changed my browser because the version I had before wasn't compatible with a site I needed to use for school. On this version instead of using the cursor designs that are used everywhere else, it uses it's own versions and I can't find a way to change this. When I go to click on a link it turns into this really ugly version of the hand cursor instead of the normal one. I know this doesn't seem important but it's actually triggering panic attacks for me. Please help! I'm using linux mint.

Hi,

I installed the latest Thunderbird Mail Client configured it to send and receive mail, and installed Mail Merge, and created the Template, and added the fields to the body and {{Email}} in the To: field.

However, as soon as I clicked mail merge menu item or the button, it throws this error message,


Invalid Recipient Address: No recipients were specified. Please enter a recipient or newsgroup in the addressing area.


If I entered a valid email address, this error message does not appear. However, it defies the purpose of needing to mail merge.

Any suggestions to go past this?

So, I just upgraded to version 78.1 and I just hate the way it looks. The old folders used to be yellow and distinct. The new folders are white with a blue outline of the same color as the rest of the theme. I hate that. It all just looks the same, as if they are trying to hide everything with the same color. This may be the "Modern Trend" but I hate the modern trend. I like things to stay the same. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Is there a way to get the old look back? I looked through the addon themes, but there are only three that are compatible with my version and they are all crazy stuff that I hate worst than the new default theme.
