I have a new problem, don't normally have any. I received a spam email this morning, when I tried to create a new Message Filter to delete it and future emails, the drop box won't come down. I then tried to create one manually - zip zero zilch. Works on every other email, and I tried 10 already in my Trash, it will not appear for this email. I updated after this and it still doesn't work. Also ran my anti virus just in case - Any ideas

I stupidly upgraded to TB 91+ and have had nothing but issues... when will I learn?

91+ not for me. Period. An essential add on is not compatible.

I downgraded back to 78.0 but now it will not restore the previous session at start up. I have tried deleting the session.json; starting in safe mode. I have tried various versions from 78.0 through 91.0. Nothing worked.

Restoring previous session is essential for me. Any help would be much appreciated.

Why is Firefox IGNORING any Font Changes? oh yeah and it is actually making them smaller when i try to make them bigger???????????????? And how can i possibly be the first person EVER to have this problem?????????????? Oh yes since I know your "experts" Just Like Google, will ask me a bunch of pointless questions. i am on a Dell running Windows 7 and yes i am going into FIREFOX settings and changing the fonts. They have also already changed on my computer's Display and Appearance Settings. so no one left to blame.

According to the current state of the version 93, Linux and the info from this article - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/text-encoding-no-longer-available-firefox-menu#firefox:linux:fx93 the old function for a manual change of the text encoding was removed.

How can i get it back?

This function is critical for me. It it is completely removed from Firefox, them i will downgrade it or look for another browser that still support it.

A few moths ago, when you visited a website and then typed some new search-term in the address-bar, you used to be able to search right in that tab. Now a new tab opens up and you get moved there.

While programming, i search for a lot of stuff. Switch to Firefox -> Ctrl+L -> type search-term is the fastest way i found to search for whatever I need. Problem is: now my browser clutters itself by always opening new tabs instead of just reusing the one i don't need anymore.

So my questions would be this:

  1. Is it possible to restore the old behaviour of staying within your one tab?
  2. If there is some other shortcut that allows for searching without moving to a new tab?

(I also tried Ctrl+K and Ctrl+J. Both still open a tab when you already are on a website.)

In most folders I want all emails to be retained, and so this is what my account settings say.

However in a few folders I wish to delete messages older than a certain length of time, so in the Folder Properties Retention Policy window I've unchecked "Use my account settings" and selected "Delete messages more than 'xxx' days old", with various figures for xxx (leaving "Always keep starred messages" checked).

This used to work correctly, but I've just realised that no old unstarred emails are being deleted from these folders. From the dates of the old emails retained, this appears to have started about the middle of 2020.

How do I get Thunderbird to delete the old messages in these folders?

Hi there. I know this question has been asked before, but none of the other threads have found suitable solutions, and unfortunately they are all archived, so I need to ask anew:

In Thunderbird 78.13.0 (the latest provided by my distro), the time format is 12h AM/PM. This is undesired.

OS system settings are 24h time format. System clock and all other apps display 24h time format. All except Thunderbird. This is regardless of "Application locale / Regional settings locale" option in TB preferences.

Date format does display correctly in Thunderbird (as per system settings).

So... I've scoured TB preferences menu and the web and there is no option to set this. I'd like to know if there's an environment variable within TB (i.e. through the "config editor") to set time format, and if so, what is the correct syntax.

Thanks!!

To developers of reply-handling add-ons:- It would be useful to be able to force "Reply All" sometimes. In my work a whole team need the information from a client not just the person at the "Reply to" address. Clients don't always realize this even when it is spelled out for them in the body of the message. And sometimes I forward these messages to colleagues who should been included who then reply to them ...to me.

It would also be useful to have the option of "Repy All (but not cc's)". (I know this can be done by deleting all the CC'd addresses in the compose window, but still anything which reduces clicks helps.) For example this would work well in a conference setting where an email has been sent to all presenters and organizers (in the "To" address box) as well as all participants (CC'd). Participants could reply to organizers and presenters without having to know exactly which person was best placed to handle their enquiry, and without filling the inboxes of the other participants.

Hello all, Since a new update last night. I am only able to print pages that include the Subject, Date, To/From details at the top of my print page. These are not the "header" settings, those I can toggle on and off in the print page details. I need to print email content that does not include the Subject box at the top.

I am running Thunderbird 91.2.1.

Thanks all!

My dark theme accompanied by the default minimize, maximize and close buttons, I've checked other themes and even those recommended to me by default in the themes tab and it's the same problem.

Is this fixable?

Hi! I wonder if the Thunderbird team is discussing moving to a more Gtk4-consistent GUI design, with a header bar with tabs, similar to Firefox, instead of the current title bar & tab bar design? The current design steals much screen space, since the title bar has no obvious value and should be united with the tab bar. This step would also move Thunderbird closer in terms of design to both Firefox and GNOME.

When TB recently updated from 78.14.0 (64 bit) to 91.2.0 (64bit), all my extensions did not load. I reviewed and verified they are compatible with 91. Toggling the enable/disable in add-ons manager did nothing although some mysteriously did get disabled. Restarting TB from scratch had no impact. (I note that closing TB tends to cause a crash.)

I was able to get the most extensions to function if I re-installed them into TB but the minute I closed TB and restarted, they all went away again.

I note that clicking on "Check for Updates" causes an "Updating add-ons" message to appear.....forever.

What gives? This is only slightly less painful than the transition to 78.....argh!

I would like to get rid of this new feature; the Drag & Drop Overlay window. I find it unnecessary, and the huge window that appears for dropping the file into is a real distraction. The old way of dropping the file into the message itself or in the attachment window at the top-right were easy to operate and logical. This thing is a nuisance.

With more and more websites reading the browser theme settings, and changing to Dark Mode automatically, I really think it's time we have an option to stop websites doing this. I like my dark theme in Firefox, however I don't like websites in Dark Mode. Surely I am not the only user who wants this feature, either as an option in settings, or in about:config

I am a huge advocate for privacy, and the main reason I use Firefox over Chrome. I and like so many others, sacrifice the superiority and convenience of the Chrome browser, so we can utilize the great features Firefox has. And it makes me feel a little better inside knowing I am tracked less. I do not want websites reading my theme settings or any other non essential browser data. please fix this.
