Left Mac Mail for TB (on Fedora). I am trying to replicate my signature from Mac Mail but I can't seem to format it nicely. I had some legal disclaimer text which was small font (8) and gray rather than black. I tried pasting the text into the signature box in account settings but it's just plain text. is there some way to activate a rich text/html editor to make it look a bit nicer? thanks

Some email clients allow the user to change the subject line on an incomng email. I had a client where I could edit the subject line and then store the email in another directory. Changing the subject line allowed for a better way to find the email later on as one can change the text to something understandable and easier to seach for. Can this be done in Thunderbird or is this for the wish list? Cheers Bob

There are two "bad email" files in Thunderbird: JUNK and SPAM. I'm still not clear on the difference.

For JUNK mail, TB gives us the option to select "NOT JUNK". Good.

But for SPAM, I cannot find the option "NOT SPAM"

1) Why are there separate SPAM and JUNK directories? And why are they managed differently? This seems terribly non-intuitive and inconsistent and just strange.

2) How can I train SPAM filter to not flag good email from trusted senders? For instance, I get email from my wife many times a day for many years. Today, TB put her email into SPAM. Isn't there a simple command to "white list" a sender's email address?

Thunderbird How to restore the old "Get new messages" and "Write" buttons instead of the new cloud symbol and New message buttons which really aren't explanatory or helpful

My newly updated Thunderbird has had the "Get new messages" and "Write" buttons replaced with a cloud symbol and a "New message" button. These are not as intuitive as the old ones and in the case of "New message" seemed more likely to be the new "Get new messages" button - but it isn't. Is there a way to restore the old buttons which were clear in their meaning, or at least to customise the new buttons with their old function text? I've tried playing around with the customising button options but apart from being able to add a Get messages button to the very top bar (where I would never think to look for functions other than to minimise or close the window) I cant see how to replace the new and confusing buttons or add some helpful text to the cloud symbol button. Thanks

Hello. I am currently trying to play a web game, but something is very annoying. The game doesn't implement pointer lock, so I have to play fullscreen for the movement to be continuous. Unfortunately, every time my mouse passes past the top of the screen, Firefox automatically unhides the titlebar and controls, and over all tries to escape fullscreen mode. This is very bad for the game, as the mouse movements are frantic and need a continuous mouse. How can I disable this behavior, so that Firefox keeps everything hidden in fullscreen until F11 is pressed?

I recently refreshed Firefox and now I am having trouble streaming some news channels from my TV provider. The message I get is "FIREFOX IS INSTALLING COMPONENTS NEEDED TO PLAY THE AUDIO OR VIDEO ON THIS PAGE. PLEASE TRY AGAIN LATER."

I went to my Settings under DRM and found some articles on how to watch DRM content. I dug a little deeper and went to Manage Your Plugins and noticed two Enabled Plugins - OpenH264 Video Codec and Widevine Content Decryption Module provide by Google.

Under the Widevine plugin, there is a message highighted in yellow that reads - Widevine Content Decryption Module will be installed shortly.

It's been like this for 2 days and I don't know what to do next.

I may be missing something, but how can I remove threading completely from Thunderbird or how can I download an older version. I"ve searched for 102.15, but cannot find a way to download it. I really prefer NOT to use another email client. I've always used Thunderbird, but I cannot tolerate this threading thing and I can't seem to disable it.

How can I turn off the threading of my emails? Its driving me crazy as when an email comes in after a short time it disappears into the threads and then I have to open each thread to find out who sent the email. At one stage there were 6 emails noted near the inbox but no new unthreaded message, all went to respective threads. Very time wasting.

All of the help documentation I've found for importing MBOX emails downloaded from an old Gmail account doesn't match what I'm seeing in my version of Thunderbird (115.3.2). Whether I access "Import" from the Tools or the Local Folders tab, I don't get an option to import mbox (see screenshots).

What am I doing wrong? Am I looking in the wrong place? Did I download my folders/files incorrectly from Gmail in June?

I have been using Firefox for years. Recently my browser developed a glitch. I uninstalled Firefox then reinstalled it. That part went fine. I find the newer version very user unfriendly. There is no home page button and I cannot figure out how to add one. Your bookmarks are awful. It tries to be intuitive but in the end all it does is takes 3 to 4 steps to do something that used to bee done in one. This is not an improvement. I want a bookmark list not a not a most recent list. This is a major pain in the a.. . I do not want to stop using Firefox but this user unfriendliness is a major problem. Not quite sure what to do.

Since updating to v 122.0 (Android) today, my home page displays a permanent intrusive "Customise homepage" button on my Homepage (see attached picture).

This is totally redundant when you can simply access this in 2 clicks from the taskbar. Why are such cosmetic features forced onto users? Customising my homepage is something I would do once, I don't need it to be slapped on my face every time I reach my home page.

Please advise, this is extremely annoying.

In Thunderbird 115.5.0 (64-bit) when you have collapsed threads enabled I have seen the software indicate there are say 8 unread messages. There are no bolded messages in the message panel. If you click on the READ status column you still can not see the unread messages. The only way is to uncollapse the threads and scroll down the message pane to see the bolded messages in each thread. Why?

If the threads are collapsed how are we supposed to find unread messages?

After upgrading to Thunderbird 115.6.0 (from unknown) on Linux Mint 20.1, email body text defaults to small size

After upgrading to Thunderbird 115.6.0 (from some prior version) on Linux Mint 20.1 LTS, we noticed the body of the email text was defaulting to a small size. You could Increase Font Size, and that would increase the font size for both the header and window, but also the email body. But when you closed the email and reopened it, the header and window font size stayed what you set it to, but the email body text displayed in the same small size. Interestingly, when you then say "Decrease Font Size", it would make the text larger, in line with the header and window font size shrinking by one notch. Zoom likewise increases the font size of the email body, but it doesn't persist. I've tried the recommendations for going into custom settings and changed to default the properties that were recommended, but that did not seem to fix the issue.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
