Is there currently an option in Thunderbird 91.5 to close/minimize to tray.

I found an extension but it is outdated and the answers I found are too.

I am asking for Linux Mint Cinnamon 20.3 but I guess if the option is there, it's there for other OSes.

I need some help please. Ever since I upgraded to Thunderbird 91 the 'message sender' and 'message date' are automatically appended as a suffix to the default filename(the message subject) when using the save-as command to save an email in the '.eml' format. This causes problems when attaching the '.eml' file to one of the software packages that I must use. Can the automatic suffix be disabled? Thanks.

Hi

I use Firefox developer edition. During the latest update Mozilla removed my most loved feature that asked you what you wanted to do with a file before downloading it. I tried to fix this by going into the settings and changing it to always ask for every file type, but many file types are just missing and I am unable to get them to appear. I looked on my other computers and all file types are present there but not on my desktop for some reason. Is there any way to fix this or to get Firefox to ask before downloading again?

Thanks

(I added an img of what the settings look like)

Hello. I hope you are doing well. My issue is when I installed mozzila firefox old version I can not make any search. It does not work and this message appears Unexpected response from server

Firefox doesn't know how to communicate with the server.

   Check to make sure your system has the Personal Security Manager installed.
   This might be due to a non-standard configuration on the server.

I really in need of using this old versions and adons are not available. My android is realme C11 Please fix this problem. Best regards.

I have been a "light theme" user for 15+ years. Since updating to 96.0 today, a dark mode spreading across Firefox has been forced onto me, including:

  • New tab background
  • Background of any tab waiting to load a page
  • Google/Youtube background
  • Settings/add-ons/password menu backgrounds
  • Automatic username/password drop-down background
  • Background of the little box that appears on the bottom-left (the one which shows the URL when you mouse over a link)

I am unhappy with this and wish to have my usual theme back. Can anyone please assist?

(In addition, there is some sort of white border around the current tab, which I do not like)

Greetings,

I am running 91.5.0 (64-bit). And for the last year or so, I was accessing all my various TB profiles by going to HELP -> MORE TROUBLESHOOTING INFORMATION -> ABOUT PROFILES and then I would get the option to launch any profile I wanted.

The problem is that now when I launch any other profile then it comes up totally blank. It is just a shell. All the info is missing.

Your guidance and help is kindly requested...thank you!!

I'm using an online image processing service. OK until recently when the resulting jpeg file download is blocked by ff for "potential security risk". [Literally the DL report says blocked but my photo software shows a jpeg file created that cannot be read.] An ff clone browser gets the file OK. Also there is a manual over-ride in ff that works one file at a time. I don't see any way to automate for batch or site itself. Manual for each file is a nuisance. I really don't know what I'm dealing with here but I doubt there is a virus or security danger for my home (not networked) pc. Thanks for any assist.

PS: I see in download help here, the threat warning of PSR [potential security risk] is ambiguous. Compared to "may harm your computer", a higher level. PSR says "uses an insecure connection . . . may be corrupted or tampered with during the download process". I read this knowing that another browser, and the ff override, get the file no problem. Can a security threat be concealed in a jpeg file? FF is relying on google-based protection, I believe.

Hi, my mom stumbled across a serious issue: she needed to change the font color for one message so she did just that in Preferences, but then it turned out she can't change back to the original color: now all text is white, it only displays upon being selected. I tried to have her go back to the Preferences, type "font" (in Polish, but doesn't matter) and it did seem to show three color controls, surrounded by unselectable (therefore invisible) text—none of these controls, however, was set to white, instead being set to dark hues. We changed them several times nonetheless, reset Thunderbird, reset the whole system... and nothing. The damn thing won't revert to the original status.

The pictures are poor quality, but I needed to guide my mom as she performed the screen printing so it took some effort to at least get these two. Nevertheless, you can see the white areas where the text is supposed to be, unless it's selected (in which case it's white-on-blue). Please advise.

When using Reader View on Android, websites that use highlighted text with the < mark > tag are difficult to read in dark mode. In the attached screenshots, the light mode is the original website with text highlighting. The dark mode is Reader View and the white on yellow highlighted text is unreadable to me.

Could you include a higher contrast highlighting default for < mark > in future releases please? Ideally by subduing the background colour, but happy for any solution.

Thank you.

Every release FF for android gets worst. 1) Why did "page/print to file" was removed from new releases ? 2) Why is it so difficult to make a export/import bookmarks to file on android devices and avoid sync ? 3) sync changes from older version to newer, and now we loose bookmarks when a upgrade/downgrade needed. 4) why did version after 68.x get so bad ?

Please explain ?

I believe this is a planned attach on FF to make it worst and destroy this great project.

Thankfully after a few minutes spent on a google search, I figured out how to put it back. What I want to know though is why it disappeared in the first place, and why there is even a reason to be able to remove it anyway? I never touched it, I never did anything to customize the toolbar. It disappeared entirely on its own.
