New Thunderbird version 78.4 will not connect to my isp - HughesNet - and will not download or send new email. How do I fix this? Older version 68 worked just fine. I'm using Windows 7. At the suggestion of another article I checked the security settings on TB - they seem to be just fine. My address book is intact, and all the older emails downloaded also. Just can't get the new ones.

Hi all, we (our farm) have used SeaMonkey Messenger for mail since it evolved from Netscape Navigator.

Now as a perpetual donor to Thunderbird we have phased out Messenger recently.

We like the features of Thunderbird, such as the pinned search filter when moving between accounts among other nice aspects.

Help to resolve a feature never experienced in Seamonkey Messenger is that the default HTML font is never sent as composed.

I work in Times New Roman and when sent Arial is in the Body Text as Variable Width. A draft saved also reverts to Arial as per the attached image.

The Default HTML font is configured to Times New Roman and I can resolve the send format if I select the composition and apply the font from the toolbar, or use the ThunderHTMLedit to insert the font in the body.

My question is; How can the Variable Width default to our preferred font?

As previous, this doesn't occur when using SeaMonkey Messenger.

What happened to the Arial Black font? It suddenly disappeared from the list of fonts that appear in Tools >> Options >> Language and Appearance.

Due to vision problems, I require a bold font. Mozilla has now made it almost impossible for me to use Firefox. Does anyone know of a workaround to this problem?

also, a FYI: Removal of this font violates the Americans With Disabilities law.

With the latest update my message toolbar got changed and I can't figure out how to fix it. This is the one with Reply, Forward, Archive, Junk, Delete, More. I want the Delete button (the most frequently used) to be on the far right side with a gap beside it so that other buttons aren't pressed by accident. There is no customize option for this toolbar and the customize dialog for the main toolbar doesn't work for this toolbar.

I think this probably got broken in the latest upgrade. Until it is fixed, where can I find where this customization is stored so that I can fix the toolbar to a more logical layout?

Thanks.

I've read a lot of help on this - almost all of them say, "As you have discovered there are three visible TO/Cc/Bcc fields..." and: " type or select email address and press enter to move to next TO field".

None of that works. I have only ONE visible "To" field. It has no controls to change it to a Cc or Bcc one. There is a "CC" or "BCC" option beside the "From" field. Pressing Enter at the end of an address does precisely nothing.

Another copy of TB on another computer has all the features you gaily point to - but mine doesn't. Where do I find it?

Since updating to Thunderbird 78.4, I can't customize the background color of the "compose message" window. It's black and that's the way it stays. I've tried changing it in settings (in General and Composition) and background of the "read" window will change to what I want it to be, but the "compose" window stays black.

What's going on???

Thank you,

I've tried to install several search engines via Mycroft Project to use them through the search bar but that doesn't seem to be working.

I don't get any notice, it just doesn't work.

Also, one of the search engines I've been using (Twitter) seems to have disappeared from my browser. That's what got me to try to install it again, with no luck so far.

(I've dowloaded Firefox Nightly, installed it from scratch, and seem to have the problem.)

The background color on the screen for composing a message is black, and the text is red. This happens for when using "Write" to open the composing screen, or using a template to compose. Even though the background and text during composition is black and red, respectively, the sent message is on a white background with black text. I would like the screen for composing the message to also be white text with black background and for those to be the default colors. Thank you.

I have used Thunderbird for many years. My Thunderbird updated to v78.4 and now I cannot find any way to add signatures to emails.

There is no help among the 1000s of threads here.

Basically I think 78.4 is a backward step.

How do I get my signature options back?

Today auto-update installed TB 78.4.0 on my pc. I see fancy stuff like new icons in the folder pane and a timeline in the message search but I cannot find a settings to always show search results as list. Is there a way to have change the default according to user preference? I also cannot find a way to restrict the search to a specific part like sender, subject etc. as I can do on the quick filter toolbar. If I search for things like e. g. amazon in my messages, I get too many results and I cannot find an easy way to search only my latest transactions for something like order number or order amount.

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.

(Firefox tells me there are thousands of results for this question, but I can't find any of them.) Thanks.

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.

Once upon a time, Firefox used to offer a setting that permitted either maintaining visibility of the address bar or auto hiding it. This ability seems to have been removed now. And while the previous versions on Firefox Beta had a fixed address bar (prior to 2nd July 2020), the recent 78.0.0 beta 1 update has the address bar bouncing up an down... 1) it irritates me (I don't like stuff randomly bouncing around my screen) 2) it means I don't get to change the website address when I tap the bottom of the screen but get whatever links present itself on the website site...

There may be people who like an auto-hiding address bar, I don't. It is annoying and distracting. The solution is to make the auto-hide feature an optional setting the way it has been in the past. Let the user choose. In addition, this might then also re-enable my keyboard scroll which miss.

The tab view has changed too... - I'm not sure if I like the change (first impression negative, second view more positive - I do like the close all tabs button, at least that makes life easier) - however this is a different topic and lets see how it develops.

PS: I cannot seem to find the ideal place for feeback/a feature request brwosing this site on a phone... Or is there no dedicated channel??

Just upgrade from TB 68 to 78. Everything looks okay so far, except for one new feature I do not like at all. When mouse hovering over the list of messages in a mailbox, the message under the mouse pointer is highlighted the same as if it had been selected. Is there any way to turn this off or to change the highlight color? It has already caused me to accidentally delete a few messages I did not intend to delete. I really don't like this "feature" and am considering going back to TB 68 if I can't find a way to disable it or alter its behavior.
