Font Corruption on Sent emails compared to Composed/Write emails

When I compose/write a new email the text correctly displays the font and size I have selected In PREFERENCES -COMPOSITION - HTML STYLE which is Times New Roman with FONT SIZE selected as Medium.

However when I view the very same email composed with line and length and breaks fitting Times New Roman Medium in my SENT box the font and size has been changed to what appears to be a HELVETICA font with the SIZE being larger than medium and this causes sentence wraparounds and corruption of the entire appearance of the email composed/written

How and what do I set to ensure the compose/write fonts display the same in SENT/RECEIVED.

I had my userCrome.css set to widen line spacing in the message list, among other things. Updating to Þb 115 broke this, and since I can't inspect the css, I don't know how to fix this again.

My current css includes:

/* Message List */

  1. threadTree

treechildren::-moz-tree-cell-text {

   font-size: 16pt !important;
   color: black !important

}

/* treechildren::-moz-tree-row {

   margin-top: 0pt !important;
   margin-bottom: 6pt !important;

} */

treecol:not([hideheader="true"]), treecolpicker:not([hideheader="true"]) { -moz-appearance: none !important; padding-top: 2px; padding-bottom: 2px; }

treecol:not([hideheader="true"]):hover, treecolpicker:not([hideheader="true"]):hover { }


I tried relaxed density, but it expands *everything*, not just the message list.

Also, in Firefox, how can I use this site and avoid all the animated headers?

I would like to see the sender's email address in lieu of a name.

The inbox SELECT COLUMNS TO DISPLAY does not offer an option to DISPLAY THE SENDER’S EMAIL ADDRESS.

Both From and Correspondents display the same names. Perhaps replacing one of those with the SENDER’S EMAIL ADDRESS?

I use the userChrome.css file to take the search bar from the bottom of the screen and have it float. Here's the instruction that I use ... .browserContainer > findbar {-moz-box-ordinal-group: 0; position: fixed !important; }. Firefox 107 has made that .css instruction non-executable. If I text out the instruction I now get the search box at the bottom of the screen. I want it back to a floating search box. Is there a fix in 107 so I can use my .css file or is there another way to get the search box floating. Regards

Hello, While the display size is correct on my MacBook Pro 2021 screen is OK, it is huge and unusable on my second monitor (see images). My layout.css.devPixelsPerPx is set at 2.5. If I set it at default (-1), the external monitor display is OK, but the internal monitor is so small that it is unreadable (to the extend that it was actually hard to figure out how to revert back to so I moved the window to the external monitor). This is a bug. There should be a setting per monitor or the default should follow the System Preferences setting for all monitors.

Please fix this quickly!

I hope someone can help me. Up until the last week or so, I have had no problem with my signature file in outgoing email. I've been using the same signature file for at least 5 years. Suddenly, Thunderbird is blocking my logo image in my signature file in all outgoing mail. Instead, it is showing my alternate text. I am using version 102.6.1 on Windows 10

Hi

Running Firefox 71.0 (64 bit)

Well seems Firefox has been messing this up again.

Anyone have the new work around solution to get my tabs back on the bottom again. They were fine this morning then shut down and went out to lunch and when I came back they were back on the top again after months of being where I wanted them below my bookmark bar.

Thoughts on this?

Thanks Dave

Many times now, I have needed to change folder views to 'Unthreaded', ditch 'Correspondents' in favour of 'From' and 'Recipient' and arrange my emails in descending date order. Every time I create a new folder, I need to go through the same routine. Every time I download a new version of Thunderbird, all my folders are changed back to 'Threaded' and 'Correspondents' and are in Ascending date order, so I have to go through the whole process again. What I need is a simple 'global' setting in a menu, so that I can change the settings for ALL my Thunderbird folders in a simple series of clicks, without needing to go to each folder every time. Better still would be a 'once for all' fix that would prevent Thunderbird changing my settings every time I download a new version. There must be thousands of Thunderbird users who share my frustration with what is lotherwise an excellent email program. Please fix it!
