When you highlight an email and then delete it, the little check box at the far left then 'jumps' into the email either above or below the one you deleted. How can you stop that from happening? I've attached a screenshot to illustrate my problem. How do you stop the check box on a deleted email from jumping to an existing email you may not want to delete?

Basically, when I have a threaded message, I don't see the > to drop down information to show the threads from the subject pane in the subject field.

I have gone to view, sort by threaded. I'm led to believe I should see something like this:

Subject : Top Level of Thread

 |
 ---> Subject : Re: Top Level of Thread
      |
      ---> Subect : Re: Top Level of Thread

But I see none of that. It's just one flat subject. It doesn't even tell me someone has replied to me. I have to go into the mail to see that. I have added the conversations add on just to get a glance of that, because I'm seeing nothing.

Image attached of what I see.

tl:dr Here's the CSS to put in userChrome.css file. This is the "hides everything" option. See toward the end of this post for others.

  1. navigator-toolbox:has(#PersonalToolbar[collapsed="true"]) {
 visibility: collapse;

}


+++

I was looking for a way to hide the nav bar and ran across this older forum topic (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1288181).

The solution shown here seems to be non-functional these days (early 2024), but it gets us in the right direction, so below is the code for us to look at.

  1. main-window[chromehidden*="toolbar"] #nav-bar {
 visibility: collapse;

}

This is CSS, meant to be copied into a text document, itself placed in a folder called "chrome" that you'll need to create in your browser's active profile folder. Per step 6 in the instructions (https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html) linked by @jscher2000 in the above-linked forum topic, you'll also need to set toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to "true" in about:config. If you don't know what about:config is, this is a good example to get started, but I'm not going to explain it here.

This CSS code selects the object with ID #main-window, with an HTML attribute "chromehidden" equal to "toolbar", and sets its CSS property "visibility" to "collapse". Apparently Mozila have changed the way they implement toolbar hiding, as this no longer works — this chromehidden attribute is nowhere to be found in the HTML that drives the Firefox interface, not sure if that's the place to look for it, but I think so. Anyway, we need to dig around in this interface HTML ourselves to see what changes when hiding the bookmarks toolbar, so we can adapt a new method to what's going on in the browser now.

To do so, we open a window within a window (chrome://browser/content/browser.xhtml) and run the inspector via Web Developer Tools. Comparing the HTML we see here with the bookmarks toolbar in each state (I used BBEdit to compare the texts), we see that the object with ID #PersonalToolbar experiences a change in its "collapsed" attribute when we hide/show the bookmarks toolbar. So in our CSS code, we shift our strategy to update the "collapse" CSS property for #navigator-toolbox whenever it contains a #PersonalToolbar object with its own "collapsed" attribute set to "true", which occurs whenever we hide the bookmarks toolbar. Somewhat surprisingly, this approach of updating the CSS property seems to auto-reset on its own when the "collapsed" attribute is set back to "false", which occurs when we show the bookmarks toolbar again. In other words, it simply toggles with the visibility setting of the bookmarks toolbar, and we don't have to write any further code.

If you're interested in hiding some other UI element when hiding the bookmarks toolbar, you can modify this code to do stuff like that (but to go beyond the below examples you'll need to suss out the object IDs, CSS properties, and HTML attributes — and maybe more, depending on what you're trying to do — on your own).

But for convenience, here's an example that hides just the tabs:

  1. navigator-toolbox:has(#PersonalToolbar[collapsed="true"]) #titlebar {
 visibility: collapse;

}


Here's one that hides just the URL bar:

  1. navigator-toolbox:has(#PersonalToolbar[collapsed="true"]) #nav-bar {
 visibility: collapse;

}


Since those are the only other two things in the #navigator-toolbox to be hidden, I suppose that means we now have all options on the table (at least the way I have the browser set up). Enjoy!

Eg. I want each account to have it's own unique Collected Addresses address book Collected Addresses - Account 1 Collected Addresses - Account 2 Collected Addresses - Account 3 Collected Addresses - Account 4 Collected Addresses - Account 5 Collected Addresses - Account 6

I've looked online and there are some instructions, but they reference settings that I cannot find. Is there a way to do this?

Hi there,

Using the shortcut Ctrl + Cmd + Space is suppose to open the Emoji panel, however it disappear instantly.

I have already heard that this could happen if you download FF in a specific language and then change it to another language (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1563862). I have deinstalled everything and reinstalled without changing the language, and it still don't work properly.

I'm a swiss french user, so my keyboard is configured for "French - Swiss" and Firefox is in French.

Does some of you still have this issue? Thanks a lot for your help

I use the search feature a lot, and it's extremely annoying that every time after the search I have to click "Show results as list" in order to get a proper view of the search results. The default view is quite poor in my opinion.

The question is: why isn't there an option to show the search results as a list by default?

It would surely be a very, very easy feature to implement, and as I was googling for this, I noticed that users have been asking for this for YEARS now. Why on earth hasn't it been implemented?

Greetings,

I have happily used Firefox for a very very long time and all has been well until the last month or so.

I have a brand new laptop with Windows 11 Pro and Firefox 126.

Each time I open the machine to begin a new day and open Firefox, all my tabs are gone from the previous session; this is not good for my research, studies, and business activities. I have read a lot about this issue online and (1) find that under Settings, History, there is no "restore previous session" option; and (2) I have several times already cleared the "sessionstore" folder and copied the files for later reuse.

Further, "Open previous windows and tabs" is checked off; always has been. I have checked other relevant settings and they all seem fine; but to no avail.

What would you suggest?

Thanks, Donald Sanders
