Have a new computer and set up Thunderbird 78 on it. Old computer had v78 and at top of folder pane had a row with "Name", "Unread", "Totals" displayed (option to show "Size" turned off). This allowed number of messages in each folder to be shown against the folder name. On new computer have enabled the Folder Pane but cannot get the row that allows display of (folder) name, unread, totals and size. Tried searching through options and also seeing what left clicks or right clicks might offer but no luck. (Note have another computer running v78 which has folder pane top row working; perhaps upgrading from earlier versions preserved this feature.) I have not yet looked in the prefs.js file but hope someone can give me a helpful answer before I do that.

About a month or so ago Thunderbird updated. After that one of my email groups of 54 addresses no longer went on separate Bcc rows but were all included in one row. That was around the time when my ip address became blacklisted by Spamhaus and MXToolbox. Now they want $100 a month in fees to ensure my emails get through because they are all being returned to me as spam now.

I want to go back to placing each of my address book contacts into SEPARATE BCC rows by using a global drag and drop, not an individual posting.

Can anyone show me how to do that as I have been unable to discover how to get back to that old way. Vic

On 84.0.2 on OSx.

Firefox will offer to save usernames and passwords, but then does not remember them in the future. Attempting to import existing data from another browser into Lockwise prompts a request to set a primary password first. Attempting to set a primary password (which is currently not set), yields the error message "Unable to change primary password."

WIth a recent update, thunderbird now puts an annoying pop up almost every time I click on the "junk" icon of a new message to send it to the junk folder. The pop up offers to purge messages from the disk, and gives "proceed" or "cancel" options. It also offers a check box to not ask again and do it automatically.

I know how to compact folders and do it on my own as needed (and through the setting for doing that automaticallywhen too much space is being used).

I've read the other thread in which it was explained that this "purging" does not delete messages from trash, but that does not tell me whether it deletes messages from the Junk folder.

I do not want any messages ever deleted automatically - I sometime need to go back and check junk or trash messages.

1) does the "purge" function delete any messages from any folders (in particular from junk or trash)? 2) how do I stop the annoying pop up asking me to "proceed" or "cancel" purging each time I click the "junk" icon to move a message to the junk folder?

Thank you very much for any help!

BTW, if "purging" through the pop up is not deleting any messages, and is just compacting folders, then the pop up is very poorly worded.

My questions are: 1. When is new Widevine CDM coming to Firefox? 1. Can Add-on Manger provide this update to older Firefox?

Firefox has been saving images from some sites as webp instead of JPG for a long time. There have been repeated threads on this subject which get locked and then pushed into the long grass.

Sure, I could botch a solution by installing an add-on to convert them, or I could use something like XnView (which I do, periodically, and in bulk) after the save event has happened, or I can edit about:info to tell Firefox not to accept webp - but this breaks functionality for some sites (like eBay), but I have found that in the end I have had to start switching to Microsoft Edge to do my browsing for a number of sites because Mozilla Firefox are ignoring repeated user requests to provide a simple option to STOP doing this.

I don't want to save any files as webp - save them as PNG if you like, or jpg, but I use an ancient copy (v3.24) of ACDsee (from the days of Windows 98) for my image browsing, sorting, viewing etc because it is perfect, blisteringly quick, has no extra editing or other functionality which I don't need or want, and it doesn't bloat up anywhere with thumbnail files... but sadly webp didn't exist back then so it doesn't support it. I have used a number of much more up to date browser-viewers, but there is nothing can touch this OLD version of ACDsee for basically brilliant design.

I'm not changing my image viewer. It's non-negotiable.

I WILL however change my web browser if I have to, if the developers of the browser continually kick into the long grass to lock, hide away and pretend there's isn't an issue which has been repeatedly flagged as an annoyance for so many users.

I have been using one form or other of 'Mozilla' family of browsers since the days of Quarterdeck Mosaic. I don't particularly want to switch my loyalty, especially to Microsoft, but if they are listening to what customers want and providing it, and Mozilla are not, what else is there to do ?

I am a retired systems developer. I cannot envisage this being SUCH a big ask.

Modern software treats its users like idiots and takes away control, doing everything it's assumes on their behalf that they will want.

It is not difficult to provide an option within settings for when saving webp files to save as webp, png or jpg with conversion if necessary. All you need to do is hear the screams and respond. :)

I'd like to search a folder for a named attachment, but I can't work out how to do it. When I select "Attachment" in the first column of the "Search Messages" window, no matter what I put in the second column (e.g., "is", "begins with") and no matter what I put in the third column (including the name of, or first letter of, an attachment known to be in the folder being searched), I always get the same result: "No matches found". A solution would be greatly appreciated as it is not an uncommon for me to need this kind of search. Thanks, Ian.
