Firefox 102esr has almost every menu, popup and screen in dark mode - which I find extremely difficult to read, given I'm antique.

I've tried all the modes like light, system etc nothing seems to fix it.

Am I going to need a stack of css code to fix it - code for each and everything I want to set back to light, or is there a setting to achieve this?

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 dear Mozilla (or should I say Thunderbird) crew and community,

After some twelve years of using Thunderbird (TB) on an extensive scale I decided to finally move over from MS Outlook (OL) (and Windows) all the way. Two weeks ago I started converting my major offline mail boxes (5000+ emails) from OL to TB (using export-to-MSG-files + convert-files to-EML + import-to-TB). Everything goes as planned and flawless, so far. I also was able to export/import my address book (contacts list) into TB version 91.10 without any problem. Today I accepted an upgrade to version 102.3. It looks good, I like the color support on the folders and the sleek interface. But when I open my address book I don't see how to order my contact list by 'Bijnaam' (the dutch field name; 'Nickname' I guess it is in English). I use this field to order my contacts by area of mutual interest. Is it possible to add this field again in the TB version 102 address book list of fields displayed (so that I can order by it)?

Thank you in advance for your help or suggestions,

I have 1 computer and 1 remote computer. On my main computer the ImportExpotTools NG works fine but I need to install it on a remote computer for others to use.

On the remote computer, I installed Thunderbird today. 102.2.2 (64-bit) I could not get the add addons to work in thunderbird so I googled the tool instead and imported it via a file instead. It shows up in Add-ons but will not show up when I'm on the folders. Version 12.0.1 : Maintenance Release - July 8, 2022.

My main computer is still on 91.13.0 so I think that's why the tool works. I may have to wait for an update on the tool.

I was trying to customize the toolbar and I can't recall how, but I lost access to my extension shortcuts through the menu list button on the toolbar. I've been since trying to get the button back or replace it, to access my extensions that way but I'm not finding any options to get the button back which I find ridiculous because the button is very helpful on the toolbar in utilizing your extensions. I'm kind of a newbie so I'm looking for help in how to get the button back on my toolbar so I can utilize my extensions that way, please. Thanks.

Before the new update of Firefox the drop-down menu would color itself a red color, if one of the options were already chosen. For example, if a webside had selectable options of answers in a drop down menu, and answer A already was selected, it's fillcolor/highlight would be red - ensuring the same options wouldn't be chosen multiple times.

Any ideas on why this is happening or how to fix?

Hello,

I restarted Thunderbird today and now have 102.3 (instead of 91?) on Debian.

I notice there is a lot of whitespace between all my Inbox folders, I can see about 15 folders less on my screen than before this upgrade (snippet attached). Is there a way to reduce or remove this (pointless) whitespace please?

I tried reducing the font, but the gaps between the foldernames in the left pane remains.

Thanks, Paul

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.

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,

I have the home page (aka new tab page) pinned because it is the only way to get the home page to appear after closing all tabs with atleast one pinned tab active. One annoying thing I found is that search results open in the same tab, which causes the pinned new tab page to get replaced by the search results. This is now how bookmarks and shortcuts behave. Can someone tell me how to get search results (from the "awesome" bar) to open in a new tab ONLY when conducted from the home page/new tab page?

I ran into an issue with the Alpenglow extension conflicting with the Dark Mode extension.

On version 105.0.1 (It may happen on other versions, it's just that I only tested it on that version.), all of the default themes, ran into defaults where they tend to fallback to the Default Dark Theme, which, while totally usable, is not the theme I wanted. The Alpine Theme was the theme that I tested with first, but it's actually also an issue on the Light theme as well. Both themes tested were official themes that were made by Mozilla, not a third-party.
