I have version 91.2.0 and attachments for incoming emails are no longer visible when you open the email. They used to be in a box at the bottom with the options to open, save, detach etc. The only way to open them is by clicking message in the toolbar>attachments. Is there anything I can do to get it to display as it did before this update?

I'm on the beta channel and the new address book format with version 95.0b2 is awful. I have one address book for an organization that has chapters across the country. The former address books had a line for Organization. That's where I would put the chapter's name followed by the name and email address for that chapter's president. The new version has no place for Organization but the chapter name shows up for some chapters but not others. When I go to Edit, there's no longer a space for Organization so I can't add the chapter name for those that are missing. Please go back to the former address book format. What was wrong with it/why was it changed? Thank you. John

Once upon a time it was fairly straightforward to change preferences. It has not been for quite some time. The above instructions in the Release Notes, "Set mail.addr_book.useNewAddressBook to false" is not helpful. WHERE is this located? HOW does one access it to change it? Config Editor doesn't appear to be in place anymore. (Haven't done this in a while)

The new address book format sucks, starting with the gigantic font. And I don't see all the info that I used to see in the list- there is only display name and email address. I'm used to seeing more info at a glance. If you want to edit card entry, you have to keep scrolling and scrolling to find data to edit - can't just click a tab.

Folder compaction trashed messages in some sub-folders in two of my mail accounts. I'm not a happy camper today.

Peace.

Under: about:config browser.taskbar.lists.recent.enabled false

I have just made a Windows 10 system and I am not understanding the features now existing that weren't with Firefox on my Win7. I have turned the 'Frequent' off and now right clicking the Firefox icon produces 10 'Recent' listings. Being that I've changed FF's config to false, I do not know how to make these 10 'recent's permanently disappear. Right clicking one of these entities and removing only replaces with another.

Please help me to permanently remove 'Recent' from my right click of the Firefox icon in my taskbar.

Recently upgraded to Windows 11 and using Firefox 94.0.1.

Yesterday for no apparent reason all web pages I tried to connect to returned "Unable to connect". I thought it was my internet connection but when I tried MS Edge it worked?

I have tried a few of the things suggested - Refreshing Firefox and changing the prefetch but no joy.

MS Edge is still working fine. The image shows 3 pages with Problem Loading. Where to next?

This the second time I am entering this problem -- the first time Firefox refused to let me return to this site.

First, I am running Firefox on Ubuntu, but Ubuntu is not relevant because the same issue occurs in Windows.

Whenever I access a file, for example, one at https://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Chioneosoma, its color (which is programmable) changes from a light bluish green to a deeper violet. Where is this color-difference stored? I have thousands of WikiSpecies files I have accessed, and they all show the violet "accessed" color if I ever have opened the file to read its contents. The problem is that when Ubuntu has to be reinstalled, I can add references to all my files, but the color-changes seem to be lost. This is a serious issue, because I currently have over 50,000 files referenced (and saved in my directory file:///home/jwill/Documents/WikiSpecies/Animalia_Plantae_8) and am still adding to them!

I think the storage location must be somewhere in one or more of the following files ('_' replaced '/'):

   _home_jwill_.mozilla
   _home_jwill_.cache_mozilla_firefox 
   _home_jwill_.cache_MM_firefox
   _usr_lib_firefox

Can you please tell me where the list of accessed files is stored? Whenever I enter a referenced directory, to access it, the color changes; so, Firefox must be able to store a reference to each new referenced directory name.

Hi folks,

I have updated to latest version of Thunderbird available today (24/11/2021, Australia time) and this problem persists.

I have a number of emails I make as tabs, usually because they are orders I am keeping an eye on.

However, whenever I restart Thunderbird, the new tabs are lost to be replaced by a set of tabs from several weeks ago.

I have cleaned cache with no effect......

Any clues what's going on, and, more importantly, how to rectify this glitch?

Thanks, Peter

Hello, After automatic update of FF to version 94.0.2 and restart of program started my problems. Since that time browser is not working properly. Program starts but will not load homepage or will not show any webpage after putting its URL and enter key. Also no setting is possible to show. Seems like browser is not connected to internet. But if I look in menu of FF " about application Firefox" there is shown that program is searching update and will show me message "you are using last version". I tried renew installation, uninstall and reinstall Firefox but without success. Also tried to install older version but without success. All other web browsers installed in PC are working correctly. Can somebody help me solve this problem please? Thank you

I have successfully installed Thunderbird and linked it by IMAP to my Gmail account. All working fine. Mail has all been downloaded. However, I want Thunderbird to always download new mail, but never delete anything, even if it was deleted from within Gmail. This is because Thunderbird will be my archive of everything. Then I will be able to delete old messages from Gmail, and know I still have archived copies in Thunderbird. Can you please tell me how to set this up?

I just had to disable my speed dial FVsomething and Eversync because I found out that it was spyware! Firefox tried to tell me this and disabled it but I put it back, and then my husband checked it out and found out about the spyware on it. I'm bereft. I've used that speed dial for years and it's been such a big help for me. I had over 100 dial all set up.

So my question is, what speed dial can I use in Firefox? Everything I checked out isn't monitored so what do I do?

Hi, I would like to ask a question about one of the add-on's for Mozilla browser, it's about FVD Speed Dial. I did not save any speed dials I did have. it worked normally all day, and suddenly I cannot use it nor save my settings to import to another speed dial because it's disabled by Mozilla for security reasons I will attach a screenshot. Is there any way I can recover my speed dial? Are they located on my PC by any chance, I cannot find them in any Mozilla folders? Would be really great if you could help me with this.

Thank you. Violeta
