I am on a unstable internet connection and while trying to download a large file it gets often interrupted. By default Firefox deletes the .part file and I am forced to again download from zero. Is there a config that I could change so Firefox keeps .part files so I could continue resuming the interrupted download?

The browse button does not work for me. It does nothing when clicking it

I have only just installed Thunderbird, so I'm not sure a reinstall would help

Currently in the box it says: file:///media/randomguy400/44754/Sounds/message.wav

I'm not sure why it has this path. The actual path to the file it is referring to is actually in E:\\Sounds (also the hard drive is named "44754"). Not sure why the path is like this. I'm unable to change the path without using the Browse button.

I'm on Thunderbird 102.11.0 (64-bit) My PC is Windows 10 Pro 22H2

I have the same issue as this year-old, unanswered thread: [wrap sent message view?]

What I want: I want all my sent e-mail messaged to by default be written and formatted as:

  • Plain text
  • Fixed width
  • Automatically line break/word wrap (unsure of the correct eng. term), at 72 characters
  • I also want to SEE the 72-character line break/inline WHILE I COMPOSE the message, no matter the size of my e-mail composing window (I have a large monitor)

What I have done:

  • Found the mailnews.wraplength setting in config editor, and set it to 72 (it was already on 72)
  • Set Composition to: Font: Fixed width, Sending format: Only Plain Text

The issue:

  • When creating a new email, the "font" setting i Fixed width
  • When pasting/replying to that same e-mail, everything goes to variable width, calibri, other formatting
  • In any case, the TEXT DOES NOT WORD WRAP/LINE BREAK AT 72 CHARACTERS

I have also tried troubleshooting mode.

PLEASE help.

Hello,

Each time I start my computer and launch FireFox I am greeted with the "Welcome" page as if it was the first time I launch it. My extensions do not load and I have to manually turn them off and on again for them to load properly. The permissions I gave them previously need to be reconfirmed.

It's as if FireFox doesn't remember me at all. It wouldn't be that problematic if not for the issue with the extensions.

I've searched far and wide and couldn't find any solution to my problem. If anyone has any tip I'd be grateful, I already forgot half of what I've already tried but I'll let you know.

Thank you ! :)

Hello,

I am trying to understand if there is a way to customize the tab rearranging behaviour.

In particular, the thing I find very unpractical is that, after a tab is closed, the others do rearrange, but after the mouse goes out of the tab bar. This is particularly annoying when I have to close multiple tabs, since thanks to this behaviour, the tabs which I close after the first one are always the unintended ones.

The solution would be to let the tab rearrangement happen instantly after the closure of the tab. In my opinion even without animations, I do not really care about that.

If you have any suggestions let me know.

Thanks in advance!

I have "allow remote content" enabled yet these warnings still appear. All of the emails in my work inbox are from a trusted source, therefor these warnings do not serve any purpose and are more annoying than beneficial. For some reason I can't use the element inspector in developer tools on this window but if I could hide the warning with a userchrome.css file that would also be nice too. I have tried that but it didn't seem to do anything. Here is what I did.

  1. mail-notification-top{

display: none; }

I also have toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets set to true (not sure why this isn't the default setting to avoid confusion)

Up until I upgraded to the beta circuit today, I was using TB V102.<something>

I use a third-party desktop configuration program called WindowBlinds to set system colors and themes; it has always been able to set colors in Thunderbird with no issue... until I installed this beta version... Now, I simply get black text on bright white background, regardless of WindowBlinds theme.

So I tried falling back on using Thunderbird settings... in Settings-> General -> Fonts & Colors, I have tried all combinations that I could think of, but *none* of them affect the Local Folders Folders and Messages display colors.

Specifically, I have: > Enabled "Allow messages to use other fonts" > Under Colors window, have both set and cleared "Use system colors" If I SET "Use system colors", then all of the Settings tabs use the WindowBlinds colors, but neither Local Folders nor Calendar use them. If I CLEAR "Use system colors", then all of the Settings tabs use the fgnd/bgnd colors that I specify in the Colors dialog.

I *really* want *all* of the windows to use my system colors, which were set by WindowBlinds... that's how it all worked before... that bright-white background on the message panes is Ghastly!!! I cannot bear to look at it...

Hi, I'm not sure if I just cant find the setting or if this is a feature request. I'm using the Firefox Developer edition, and I during web development I often deal with many query Params in the URL. Is there a way to have a long URL be displayed in multiple lines, or even better, one line per query parameter?

As per old thread at: https://support.mozilla.org/zu/questions/1365405 which has since been archived.

As of version 113, this solution is being suppressed. I occasionally see the x appear briefly on the left when a tab is selected, but then it reverts. So far I have not been able to work out what setting is overriding this function, so I've just rolled back to 112 and used the "--allow-downgrade" flag on the firefox shortcut so I can still load my old profile, but understand this is not a safe option in the long term.

I have several email addresses, some are POP and others are IMAP. On one of my IMAP accounts, I have Junk, Known Spam, Sent Spam, Suspect Email and Virus Blocker folders, along with the usual Inbox, Drafts,Sent and Trash folders. I'd like to remove the Sent Spam and Known Spam folders but can't find a way to do so as Thunderbird won't allow it. I can delete subfolders I've created, but not these. Help anyone?
