Hi folks,

Since the last 109.0 update I've noticed a strange behavior with Firefox.

Sometimes after watching a video stream in full screen, my toolbar changes and moves all my customized icons / extensions etc. into this "more tools" drop down menu. I can reproduce this by repeatedly switching from full screen to the normal view

This is so annoying and frustrating.

Does anyone know how I can fix this?

I have just logged in anew. Firefox has offered to create a new “profile”. I chose a profile name I am sure I have used before. Firefox claims a user (profile) by that name “already exists”. How may I “re-unite with my lost self”? I refuse to use Firefox again until a logical and reasonable login process is established. I shall delete what seems to be a “new account” and use other browsers.

For the past several TB updates my create new mail windows are stuck on my screen. I cannot move them around unless I inch it along corner by corner. It remembers the last position and opens it again there. I used to be able to move around the compose window without a problem. Anyone know what's wrong and how to fix it?

I'm on Mac OS 12.6, TB 102.5.1 (waiting for the Windows 36 bug to be fixed before updating).

In November of 2020, I was forced by ATT to stop using Thunderbird as my email client, for both incoming & outgoing email. ATT changed its security protocols, and that required that I begin (at that time) using ATT's (pathetic) email client.

I have used the very clumsy, very limited ATT / YAHOO email client ever since... and, hated every minute of it.

I had previously used Thunderbird for 10-20 years, literally, and I loved the dynamic functionality which Thunderbird offered.

Since then, I have hated my ATT / YAHOO email experience, and I would like to start using Thunderbird again, if that is possible, considering the ATT security protocols.

Can anyone help me ?

Apple's built in spell checker on the Mac is unparalleled. Not only does it integrate with the native dictionary, it also automatically detects and switches languages as you type. Right-clicking on an unfamiliar word brings up the "look up" option which fins the word in the dictionary. It's furthermore smart enough to detect misspelled words which are correct words in another language. I don't know how apple achieved this, it's remarkable.

Anyway, Firefox displaces this functionality on the mac with their own dictionary, which although good, is not as good as the native spell checking and dictionary.

Is there a way to enable the native dictionary for Firefox on the Mac?

Is there a way for the new window animation in Firefox for Mac to be disabled?

Safari does not do this, but firefox has a... ~100ms animation for new windows that's extremely frustrating for those of us who do not use tabs (Apple's Exposé/Mission Control obsoletes them).

I haven't found a configuration in about:config, although I've been able to disable a few others.

Until recently my browser accessed all the sites I have used for years and now I cannot access them. As an example the message I receive is "You don't have permission to access "http://booking.jetstar.com/au/en/booking/select-flights" on this server".

Reference #18.62052017.1660274157.1f6107dd Other sites like my banking site I can access freely on Edge but cannot on Firefox. No error message in that case, just says error try again. All this started after I loaded Norton. I have had them look at the system, and they have, but also point out that it is not them as I can access the site from Edge. I have looked at the help page and their are thousands of people with the same query but no fixes! As a long term supporter of Firefox I am disappointed that I now have to use Edge to do most of my business. HELP

I started a new job last year and I have been using Thunderbird to monitor multiple email accounts. it is a really great product.

I have had to deal with one "feature" for my entire career with this software and that is the behavior of the windows when I reply to a message; each time I go to reply it minimizes each other window.

When this first happened I thought for sure this is toggleable! I must've spent an hour going over each option multiple times before emerging completely defeated. I thought certainly this is a bug right? No way would anyone purposefully set such an inane feature as the only option for one of the most utilized features of Email?? NO! It's working as intended!

I'm going to save the rant on how this is a massive blow to an otherwise overall pleasant user experience and jump straight to my point. I'm not a native Windows user and I don't know how to solve this but certainly someone else does or at least agrees with me that this is stupid and whoever put it in should never be allowed to make choices alone when it comes to this field ever again (you should be ashamed!)

Please help!

Putting exactly the same IMAC account on another two systems which already had another IMAC account worked. Is there some restriction on having both POP and IMAC accounts on the same copy of Thunderbird?

Greetings...

I am using Windows 10 / Firefox v109.0.

I use the Screenshot feature virtually every day and find its availability extremely valuable. Unfortunately, I have noticed that the Screenshot feature appears not to work when I am on the HomeDepot website. While the "scissors" icon appears at the customary upper right location, when I select it, nothing happens. Multiple clicks on the scissors icon - nothing happens. Regardless of the webpage that I am viewing on the HomeDepot website, I am unable to create a screen capture of the webpage contents.

The above has been the case for some time now, so it's not specifically associated with my current version of Firefox. I have experienced this same problem when visiting the Lowes.com website. However, I have used other e-commerce websites (Staples, Best Buy, Wegmans, etc.) and have been able to use the Screenshot feature without difficulty.

Any idea why the Screenshot feature does not work on select websites, such as I have described above? Please advise. Thank you!

I've just got a new Win 11 PC and have followed the method to transfer all the emails in my Local folders to the new PC. TBH I've tried many of the methods without success.

I've copied the folders from the relevant directory on the old Win 10 PC onto a USB. With TB closed on the new PC I've copied the folders from the USB to a new Folder in Local Folders directory.

When I open TB, of the ~7,500 emails I copy, only 282 appear

I've tried this many times now with no luck What am I doing wrong please?

I had two Firefox windows open in the past hour, and accidentally closed the one I was using, and then closed the other as well to try to tidy the situation without realizing I could only access the most recent closure. Unfortunately, Firefox will only open the most recent session to be closed, so I can't access the 30+ folders that i need to restore from the first window. I am a non-technical person currently in hospital. Can anyone help?
