If I allow the preview pane to exist, then new messages will be marked as read even if I just have it highlighted. The settings will only allow me to set it so that messages won't be automatically marked as read, or that they will be after a set amount of seconds. This applies even if I don't fully open the message. Is there a way to have the message be marked as read only if I fully open it, while still having it set so that the preview pane visible?

How To Access Hangouts / GTalk / GoogleTalk CHAT web-service inside Thunderbird TAB:

Details here: https://stackoverflow.com/a/63255601/3553808 (please upvote my Q+A both there if its useful/helpful)

BRIEF SUMMARY:

TB = Thunderbird.

Tested + worked on Thunderbird : v68.12.1 , v78.7.1 (and one step earlier TB).

• Load "BrowseInTab" TB addon : TB > Tools > Addons > in "Find More Extensions" box, type: BrowseInTab click on [ + Add To Thunderbird ] button > "Add" > restart TB. • Also load "Open Tab" TB addon : TB > Tools > Addons > in "Find More Extensions" box, type: Open Tab click on [ + Add To Thunderbird ] button > "Add" > restart TB.


• Also load an Advertisement & Harmful Code/Script Blocking type of addon that can work inside TB , or else Harmful/abusive website codes will begin to abuse your computer, & increase electrical power consumption, & overheat/warm your computer, & abuse thunderbird, & waste your internet data limits, steal DATA ( theft of Privacy), etc, etc, etc: LOAD the "uBlock Origin" addon for Firefox, inside the Thunderbird . (as of this moment, it works). How to do that, is outlined in detail, inside the linked page's SOLUTION # 1 : https://stackoverflow.com/a/63286125/3553808 (please upvote my Q+A both there if its helpful/useful)


• now send a HTML-formatted email (not plain-text Email) , into any one of the email-address (or email account) that is already setup in your Thunderbird, in that email you must send an URL LINK, this link: https://www.hangouts.google.com/ . You can also type the full URL manually in a new email (before sending), then select that full URL text & press Ctrl+C (or Cmd+C) to copy into buffer memory > TB main menu > Insert > Link > paste the copied link by pressing Ctrl+V (or Cmd+V) > Ok . Send to yourself or into another email-address that is inside the same TB.


• Inside TB if you select option to allow all Cookie ( a tracking file with tracking codes ) , then TB begins to store all types of Cookies : Unnecessary & unsafe & tracking & monitoring & advertisements, etc related ALL TYPE OF COOKIES/codes ... • So such is not a safe, not secured, not Privacy-Right respecting practice, & not-recommended. • Some users lack knowledge on how to increase security/privacy , and Some (lazy+ignorant) users prefer convenience over extra steps which will be necessary to take, to increase security/privacy. • Your dog learns or you have to TRAIN it , when it need to bark, and when it does not need to bark, when outsider or unwanted comes close ... similarly you have to train your TB on what to stop & what to allow. • Goto TB (Thunderbird) "Preferences" (or "Options"/Settings ) > then find/goto "Privacy" > goto "Web Content" section. Thunderbird - Preferences - Privacy - Web Content - Exceptions: • it should by-default have the option "Accept Cookies From Sites" unselected , for now keep it like that, ( if not-unseleted , then unselect it ) > then, in that same row , in right side, there is a button [ Exceptions ] , click on that > a new window will popup/appear : type-in (or copy from here) each of below web-address (URL) into the "Address of Website" textbox, & then press [ Add ]/[ Allow ] button :

  • The "Hangouts" web-service:
    https://hangouts.google.com/
    https://accounts.google.com/
    https://myaccount.google.com/
    https://ogs.google.com/
    https://clients6.google.com/
    https://clients4.google.com/
    https://chat-pa.clients6.google.com/
    https://chat-pa.clients4.google.com/
    https://people-pa.clients6.google.com/
    https://people-pa.clients4.google.com/
    https://signaler-pa.clients6.google.com/
    https://signaler-pa.clients4.google.com/
    https://ssl.gstatic.com/
    https://www.gstatic.com/
    https://apis.google.com/
    https://aa.google.com/
    https://0.client-channel.google.com/ (You will have to add multiple of these servers, by changing "0" into other numbers: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ... etc, Add upto atleast 30 . Which exact one will be used, depends on which one is free & randomly selected by google to serve your connection)

After all URLs are added/allowed/entered , then press [ Save Changes ].


• goto the received email which has the link https://hangouts.google.com/ in Thunderbird (TB) > right-click on that LINK > you will see an new option "Open Link in New Tab" , use/select that , a new web-browser TAB will open up inside the TB=Thunderbird.


• Login/signin to Hangouts website : Enter your GMail email-address > "Next" button > enter gmail google account's main password , and wait few seconds , then you can use it for CHAT. This process uses full standard encryption/secured protocols for all parts of communication , so its more safer.


• Google's "Hangouts" site/web-service allows to do VoIP (voice over internet protocols) chat , VoIP to Direct Dial (into mobile/landline phone) chat , Video chat over Internet , Text (over internet) chat , SMS text chat , etc . ( it mixes/combines various services ). Google will stop VoIP to Direct Dial chat , SMS text chat , etc services/options in "Hangouts" website/web-service , And move some of those services/features into their "Voice" website/web-service . The "Voice" site will have almost all features of earlier "Hangouts" site : SMS text chat , Text (over internet) chat , VoIP chat , VoIP to Direct Dial chat , etc. The "Hangouts" based Text CHAT/chatting (over internet) functionality will keep on working in "Hangouts" website/web-service. Their "Meet" site/service will provide Video Meeting (Video over internet), etc web-services. Long time ago Google moved GTalk (aka: google-talk , google-chat (not gsuite), etc) web-service(s) into their "Hangouts" website/service.


• TB itself has a builtin purple library & wrappers, etc for it , which uses XMPP/Jabber protocols to connect with GTalk text chat network service. That/those has/have bugs (and very old) , & does not use full standard security measures in all areas of communication , see here/below few bug reports : So avoid that builtin option inside the TB , and use the option i have shown above, which uses full standard TLS/SSL security (from user's TB to google servers). • https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1258255https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1092701https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1122567https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=955019https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/security/known-vulnerabilities/thunderbird/https://www.cvedetails.com/vulnerability-list.php?vendor_id=452&product_id=3678&page=1&cvssscoremin=7&order=1&trc=921https://www.cvedetails.com/vulnerability-list.php?vendor_id=452&product_id=22102&page=1&cvssscoremin=7&order=1&trc=216

TB's builtin GTalk option using old components, and does not use newer App-Password (or OAuth2) or newer full standard+safer TLS/SSL communication , so user have to use google account main password with old components in TB , and that is not good.


TB is a communication suite type of software , it needs to have more & more INSTANT communication features , by using standard security protocol based solutions. Users worldwide using more & more instant messaging/communications.


More you use TB , & contribute to TB development , more functions & features will be integrated with more/higher security , when you/user will keep on requesting them.

I have purchased Mailwasher Pro to identify spam before it is downloaded to my computer. The problem is that even when I untick the option to "check for new messages every x minutes" new emails are still being downloaded. This means that I am not able to stop certain messages being downloaded to my computer before I have a chance to vet and delete them via Mailwasher Pro. Just in case, I have also unticked "Allow immediate server notifications when new messages arrive" - I don't know what that does so unticked it in case it was causing the problem but still the emails download automatically.

Can anyone advise me please what might be causing this problem? I have contacted support at Mailwasher Pro and they have assured me that the app does not interfere with the way Thunderbird downloads emails. Also the support person I was emailing told me that he had his settings the same as mine and his emails do not get downloaded automatically.

Thank you

Hi,

I'm trying to disable the media popup in windows 10, which appears when you lower your volume or skip a song or anything (see added image). I have a brand new pc and on my old pc i was able to fix this easily by doing this: go to about:config and change this: set media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled from true to false.

I did that now, with my new pc as well. But i just does not work, i restarted my browser and pc after changing it, i set it back to true and back to false again, it just will not work.

I googled this issue, but the only solution i find, is what i exactly the thing i described above, nothing else.

My default view for the Folder Pane is unread folders/compact view along with a few favorite folders.

Since this upgrade, TB shows me how many unread emails I have in a mail account that's the aggregate of ALL unread messages in that account but there are often zero messages in the inbox because they've all been filtered into other folders. The point being, that under the inbox for email account A it says I have 10 unread messages and thus shows in the folder pane but those messages are in a sub folder (which also shows in the Folder pane) of that account and not the main inbox.

How can I get TB to stop that, to stop showing me how many unread messages there are in the primary account (if there are none in the inbox) and only the unread messages in the sub folders? (both show now so it'll say I have 10 messages in account A but those messages are in A sub/b/c/d.

Does this make sense? Anyway, it's annoying as I keep going to the primary to see what's new and finding nothing in there rather than just go to the subfolder they've been filed in to.

Thanks.

I think the title says it all: Can't add Firefox to Microsoft Focus Assist Feature (Windows 10)

I like this feature because it lets me disable notifications while filming or working on other projects but currently I cannot add Firefox to the priority list.

It may be a new feature to you (like it was to me) so here's the easiest way to access it.

Focus Assist (Right click on notifications Icon in bottom right corner) > Customize Priority List > Apps

I can add Google Chrome and other web browsers but not Firefox.

Anyone know what this is or how to fix it?

Thanks in advance.

Dears,

to get a useful (= ISO style) date and time format, I set the environment variable LC_TIME to lt_LT.UTF-8.

This works fine for the email inbox and for replies, but now the lightning calendar shows e.g. "2021 m. vasario 24 d. trečiadienis 12:00". As I don't speak lt, I can't easily interpret that :-)

Can I change the lightning calendar date format to a shorter one, i.e. ISO style "2021-02-24 12:00"?

Thank you!
