I am pretty sure I'm the only person in the whole world with this problem because I couldn't find this issue in any search engines including Google.

I used that online site (I forgot name) to make a new Firefox theme (just fiddled around colours, images etc), but didn't commit and closed Firefox and forgot about it. Now everytime I open Firefox, that same theme takes over whatever theme I have selected or the default theme. I can change to other themes fine but when Firefox restarts, it reverts back to that theme. I don't understand why something I didn't even save is taking control like this. I don't want to delete/reset profile or re-install Firefox.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Can I trust the permissions section of an extension? If Firefox says an extension only has access to a single website, can I trust it or can an extension installed from the official website go rogue anytime and have access to any site I go to? I mainly use Firefox but I don't have the confidence to install so many add-ons because there's no indication that it's currently accessing the site or not. about:performance don't always tell the whole story and a working extension can not show itself there.

Other browsers can set which site has an extension can have access to. You also have a clear indication that it's currently ON by hovering at the extension icon where a "Has access to this site" message will appear. Hope we can have something like that in Firefox soon.

So on every computer (mac, GNU/Linux, Windows - doesn't matter) I get this annoying notification that takes control of keyboard input after each reboot.

Can we maybe add a show once option or similar, in my case I use Tabliss which could also be the culprit -- but it seems to me disabling this notification should be an option or even better, have it actually show once.

Hello..............when I open a new Firefox browser tab, I see the heading Top Sites and a selection of eight links, most of them to the websites that I use frequently.

Needing 12 rather than eight, I found the facility to select a second row. But the second row also has eight links and some of them are not wanted.

Please tell me how I can select 12 links and stop at that number. If I right click the three dots in the top right corner of one of the unwanted links and then select Dismiss, another unwanted link replaces it.

I know this is a simple problem but it has defeated me. Please help.

And thank you..................Richard

Hi!

For work I use Tbird for years now, sometimes I have to prepare a lot of mails, eg 30, which I fill during the day and send after hours of work. I then see 30 times the 'new message ' text in my taskbar. It is quite hard to find the right mail when you see 'new me....' x 30. Would it be possible to change that?

I think it is in the language pack , but how to edit that? Is there no add-on to take care of that? I have been combing out the add on section but perhaps I miss sth.

Help is very much appreciated. Thanks a lot for your time,

Emails screened straight to Trash don't count as deleted when retrieving from POP server

I screen a lot of junk mail through rules I've manually entered to a Deletable folder. It occurred to me that some especially egregious ones, I can filter them direct to trash. So far so good.

Now, I have TBird configured to leave messages on the POP server for 2 weeks I think it is, or until I delete an email. That way, if I look at email on my phone or other device I get all non-trash mail for the last two weeks, and all mail (including junk) since the last time I fetched mail to my laptop, which is the long term archival location.

Problem is, if I make a rule to filter something straight to trash, TBird doesn't identify that email as deleted when next fetching messages, so the server doesn't delete them, and they're still there clogging up my phone.

Any way around this?

Pleas add home button near adress bar to quickly go to homepage. Home button should be placed where currently protection button which is useless is present.protection button can be placed within in 3 dot menu. Currently we need to open new tab or close all tabs to go to homepage. To access my top sites I will ist need to tap tabs button and then plus button to open a new tab and then I can access my top sites.

But if there is a home button we can access topsites by just clicking home button in 1 tap only.

So please consider adding home button on Firefox for Android

Firefox 88.0.1 on MacOS Big Sur 11.2.3

Two evenings ago I noticed my address wasn't filling in when I was checking out on a shop and thought it was simply the site. Yesterday morning, same issue, different site. Credit cards weren't filling in. I tried another site and another and another... All the same issue!

I tried disabling extensions, clearing my cache, quitting and restarting Firefox, and several suggestions on this forum for about:config. Nothing has worked.

I don't know if the attached screenshot will help. Hopefully it does.

I hadn't touched a single setting prior to this happening so I have no idea why it simply decided to stop?

Thank you!

I have had my own domain for a couple of decades. Never had any problems with people receiving emails from me until recently.

Through a number of tests, I discovered my domain was not black listed but instead the SPAM filters on certain providers would put my emails into SPAM until the recipient explicitly went into the mail browser and selected not SPAM for my account. See attached from https://glockapps.com/

One of those providers is Rogers here in Canada which is using Yahoo for email. The users addresses are in @rogers.com. I happen to have a Rogers account as well as my private domain which is my default in Thunderbird.

What I would like to do is have a plug-in that would look at all the email addresses I'm sending to. If a particular domain match is found, Thunderbird would change to use a different outbound account. For example, if I was sending from paul@mydomain.net, and a @Rogers destination was found, TB would change to send from my paul@rogers.com account.

At this moment, I doubt if there is a plug-in to do this. I have never explored writing a TB plug-in so wanted to ask if there are events hook onto when SEND is pressed to do what I want?

Thanks
