Why is the VIEW menu missing the ability to turn off threads? Hate threads, always have, stupid idea. Sorry, but no. Where can I completely disable threads? I upgraded to 115 beta and all my accounts now have 'threads'... FML.

I upgraded to version 115.2.2 (64 bits), on a Windows 10 OS.

I used to be able to reduce the pane of the message list, so that I could expand the contents of a selected message. But now it has a lower limit, where I cannot push the line up further.

Attached is an image showing the line of concern. I could drag it down, but no further up. How could I change this behavior?

Thanks!

Hello, I have a problem with printing in Thunderbird. When i try to print out the email, it prints the header and header only. The actual body (data) of the email will not print. Its only on this one profile, same pc another thunderbird account and works perfectly fine. The account have over 40 thousand important emails so they need to stay. Troubleshooting mode does not help too, same thing. Sometimes when it's plain html it will print but doesn't print tables. It just prints header (sender, receiver, date, etc), black lines how should the table look like but without any data inside. Same thing into PDF as well.

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.

This question was already posted and badly answered in 2016. Now things have changed a lot and Firefox DO try to translate everything which is quite annoying to anyone knowing more than a single language. No extensions related. I need to completely disable that. My firefox is up to date: 118.0.1 (64-bit).

Thank you Arturo

Hi,

I booted up Thunderbird today with the new update and the font size of the incoming messages is exceptionally small (for me). I have played around with settings and font sizes but I can't seem to increase the size of the incoming email preview font size. See image attached for what I am referring to.

How do I increase the size of this font please?

Thanks in advance

I'm a Windows 7 user... (I don't care for Windows 10 or 11) FireFox Browsers needs to have a way to adjust the ToolBar & Mrnu Text Size.. Even a Small/Medium/Large would be something. The layout.css.devPixelsPerPx in the about:config does change the font size by magifing everything on the browser. That's not exceptable, because of the way it affects everything within the viewable field. I know that no one wants to do anything to assit a Windows 7 user. But since the newer versions of window are crap.. I still need some help in trying to figure out "How to change/affect" the Size of the Text if FirwFox's browser.. Without distorting everything else within the browser....... Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated..........

There are already a number of questions related to how to get rid of the stupid pop-up window asking to translate the web pages. I am fluent in 4 languages, I use them all on daily basis and for obvious reasons I cannot keep shifting any system preferences or anything else while switching between languages.

I tried copy the "about:config" which is supposed to prevent the automatic translation from being suggested. It doesn't work - the pop-up still comes. I have even rebooted the computer after. still the pop-up comes for random web pages.

Please for the next release of this otherwise magnificient (non-microsoft) browser fix this irritating feature.

it is not Firefox business to judge whether I understand the language on the pages or not. I want to be able to prevent all attempts at "user friendliness" from the browser.

Please advice when fixed.

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?

When I open Firefox settings I can set; Firefox Home (Default), Custom URLs..., or Blank Page. I altered the Firefox Home to show a custom image per [[How to add image to my firefox home page / newtab page|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1288490]] . Now I'd like to show the Firefox Home page every time I open Firefox or open a new blank tab.

When I read the article [[How do I set a different Home page and Home button|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1341696]] the options in "about:config > browser.startup.page" are limited to "0-blank; 1-home page; 2-last visited page; 3-restore previous session", but there is no Firefox Home page in this option.

So, it seems I cannot have Firefox open to my custom Firefox Home page (and NewTab) image and have the home button open to my corporate web site. Is there another option that I can accomplish this?

In the newest version of Thunderbird the ability to toggle the read/unread status via the "Mark" button has gone away. The Mark button now summons a drop down menu of options.

I use my mail to enter customer orders. I open a letter and copy the data to my order screen, then I mark the letter as read. I've been doing this for years. Now I hit the button and nothing happens.

I know I can use the tiny green dots in the header row as a toggle but they are difficult to target because of size and when the header is highlighted they are no longer green. I know there is a keyboard shortcut but I'm a one-finger typist and that means I have to look down at my keyboard and find the "M". I really want to do this as a mouse action.

Is there any way to turn a keyboard shortcut into a button?

Or to modify the "Mark" button to restore the toggle function?

I can't seem to stop myself from pressing the Mark button just once and then becoming distracted because the read status doesn't toggle.

Is there anyway to force TBird to print selected emails into a single pdf file? I've been trying to convert my office to TBird, but this is a show stopper. We are constantly searching our email archives, selecting the appropriate ones, then printing to a pdf via the built-in Microsoft Print to PDF driver. We then send that email to our client, so they don't have 10-15 attachments. Most of our clients are older and it's hard enough getting them to open a single attachment.

This is the ONE item Outlook does that TBird does not. There's not even an extension that does it.

Thanks!
