Hi,

Occasionally the scumbag spammer, whom is constantly harassing me, sends me emails with the sender name or subject written in a weird font.

In those cases, even when I have a filter that usually filters out and deletes emails with the text in question, the filter doesn't recognise this text when these weird fonts are used and the spam email isn't deleted. I have attached some example images below.

What I want to know is whether there is any way of setting the message filters or downloading an add-on so that I can set up a filter to delete any emails containing these weird fonts?

Many Thanks,

Hello!

I would like to know which about:config preferences I have to modify to increase the speed of loading pages in Firefox?

I know that when I disable telemetry data, Firefox is saving a lot of time sending this telemetry data, which increases the speed.

In addition, I know that the loading speed will be increased when I modify some HTTP preferences, but which one.

Please give me a full list about all I can modify to increase the speed.

For as long as I can remember I have customized the colors in Thunderbird. I have vision issues and glaring white backgrounds or white type on black are less than ideal (stark white is almost painful). Thunderbird update of 9/25/2022 gives me no other options. There is a color selection icon in the Compose Message screen if not the main inbox, but the colors I choose will not apply. How can I get my muted, readable colors back? This is an accessibility issue.

Hello,

Email from a site where I'm a registered user is being sent to Junk folder. I have right clicked them and marked them as Not Junk. They are returned to the Inbox, and then within 3 seconds they are sent to Junk again. Even if I send a copy to Inbox, it gets sent into Junk. I have also added the sender addresses to my address book. Nothing works.

Thanks for your attention!

Hello, When Thunderbird first moved the Date/Time in the Message Header to the right side, I remember reading that there was a way to move it back to the left (so that the date/time is listed with the From, To and Subject in the Message Header; see attached image). Is there a way that I can move the Date/Time received in the Message Header back to the left? I don't like having to look in 2 different places to see the date/time received. I am using Thunderbird 102.3.0. Thank you! Amy J.

I have set the "Homepage and new windows" and "New tabs" option to Tabliss

However when launching Firefox, it starts in google.com and when I checked the "Homepage and new windows" option it was reset to google.com without me touching it.

I tried using custom URLs and put in "moz-extension://something-something/index.html" but it still didn't work and resets to google.com when relaunching Firefox.

I also tried putting other URLs such as YouTube it still put me into google.com when relaunched and resets it again.

It only works when I open a new tab.

How do I make Tabliss (or anything else) as my homepage when I launch Firefox?

I am trying to use use userChrome.css to modify the font-sizes of some UI elements in Thunderbird.

When I double click an event on my calendar sidepane, the popup window's font size is very small, and seems unaffected by the global font size for UI elements, determined by Menu > View > Font Size.

Similarly, the font size in the calendar window (Ctrl+3) in the top right (CW 38 Day Week Multiweek Month) is also too small for my screen.

Could someone please tell me the CSS identifier for these UI elements?

Hi! I'd like to order my inbox with the following criteria:

  • Threaded view enabled
  • Display on top the threads having at least 1 unread message
  • Among these, display on top the thread having the most recent unread message

So it becomes a "sort by unread + sort by date" in a threaded version.

I tried lot of things, but I'm unable to get the sorting done. So I had to disable threads, so I can have a plain "sort by unread + sort by date"....but I'd really like to have it with thread on, if possible! (to avoid having to mark as "read" 3 different emails when I get a task done) Thank you so much!

It appears that 2 preferences are regularly changing by themselves on a family member's WIndows 10 laptop.

1. The "mailto" option disappears from Applications. We fix it a Firefox Refresh which restores it...until it disappears again within days or weeks.

2. The "Always ask where to save files" unchecks in Downloads. We check it, and it works fine...until it becomes unchecked again within weeks.

What do we need to look for in order to avoid this?

My Firefox has been infected with MyNewTab. All attempts to remove it with various malware-removing software have failed. It does not appear in any list of installed software. I have found that I can only stop it from interferring with firefox by uninstalling firefox and reinstalling it - without syncing. So I am now trying to reinstatre Firefox to more or less how it was before.

The only real issue is that before it had an add-on - Norton Safe Web - which is not added now. I tried uninstalling Norton 360 and reinstalling it in the hope it would get the addon added. It didn't. But according to what I read it is very easy to add an add-on. I can select it from the list of add-ons, thus displaying a page all about it. According to help notes, you just click to add-on this choicre. But I can see nowhere to click to do it. I've been over that page time after time but see no way of progressing.

Help!!!

I have two different wide-gamut displays, both are colour calibrated with profiles correctly installed and assigned in Windows 11. I have set the the about:config colour management settings correctly in Firefox so that it should render with colour management.

One monitor display renders colours correctly, but the other displays the uncorrected wide gamut of the display. If I try a browser test, like Cameratico's, it confirms that the colour management tags are not being respected on the second display, but they are on the first.

Setting the force or native sRGB tags does nothing on the second monitor.

How can I fix this?
