There is a website that I block every day from my email. And every day it shows up again with the same email address. I use the message filter "from, contains" . Yet every day the same web site appears.

The site is " newsletter@zerohedge.com". How is the site bypassing my message filter? Other sites I block do not do this.

I recently updated Thunderbird to 101. from a much earlier version, and of course it destroyed all my custom settings. I found most of the addons I had previously were no longer valid. I managed to get a lot of the previous functionality back with settings and other addons, but one still has me stumped. When I bring a message up, I have it set to fully occupy the screen. There are some buttons at the top of the message header I was able to get working, like Reply, Forward, and Delete. But 2 that I use (or use to use) a lot are the Next message, and Previous message buttons. I can't seem to find any way to get them going again. Is there some way to get a link button, or icon for these in the message header?

Latest version of Thunderbird installed. Today, all attachments come in as winmail.dat files. I have removed and reinstalled LookOut (fix version), twice. Restarted TB and computer. No luck. PDF viewer is not compatible with my version of Thunderbird. Cannot open any file. I use this program exclusively. What am I missing? Thanks in advance. P.S. This seems to be a recurring issue.

I have several filters configured on thunderbird to move email to local folders. Two of these filters are not working right, but were working fine in the past. One filter has the configuration shown in the attached file, filter name Zeek-caseyjones. The other filter has the configuration shown in the other attached image, filter name PaoloMail. I send an email to pgaltieri@gmail.com with subject "caseyjones test". I expect this email to end up in the local folder named PaoloGaltieri, instead it ends up in the local folder Caseyjones. Now the Zeek-caseyjones filter is before the PaoloMail filter but this shouldn't matter. The email I sent does not include "[Zeek]" in the subject hence the Zeek-caseyjones filter should not get run. So what is going on?

How to get the following bar sequence: edit bar, tool bar, browser tabs bar in FF on W10?

I manage two W10 PCs, each with FF installed and fully updated (v100.0). Firefox on Windows has the following bars at the top: 1) the title bar (Firefox…) in Windows style, 2) the edit bar (File Edit History…), 3) the tool bar (customised: eg. Home, Go back, Go forward, Reload, Show Sidebars, Download, Print…), 4) the browser tabs bar containing the open tabs containing a website page.

The problem is that on one PC, the browser tabs bar comes right after the edit bar.

I can't find how to change this, since the solutions are too old or unclear. Please, help.

On my Taskbar I frequently have several minimised pages in both Thunderbird and Firefox that contain multiple tabs of open emails and open webpages respectively. When I want to reopen a page I can click on the appropriate icon. If in Firefox I click on the closure X by mistake I get a warning: 'Confirm before closing multiple tabs'. I get no such warning when I make the same mistake in Thunderbird and can find I have lost several tabs and I may not know which they were.

Is it possible to set up a similar warning in Thunderbird, and if so, how?

Currently it is only possible for multiple identities in one account to use the same trash folder. I would like an option for defining a separate folder to which deleted messages of an alias are moved, just as there is this option for the "Sent" messages.

I manage multiple Thunderbird client installations and would like to use the user.js file as a way keep a few options consistent across all clients such as calendar category colors. I can see changes needed from time to time and am looking for a way to deploy these future changes as efficient as possible. Since each installation has it's own profile location and I can't seem to find a Windows environment variable to locate Thunderbird profile directory location, I thought it would be nice to have a command in user.js pointing itself to a centrally located file to read in the contents as if the contents of my central file were actually in the user.js file. This way, I could add this framework manually to each client, but then update my central file to make future changes applied the next time the client is started.

 Thanks for any help!

In a previous thread 5 years ago, it has been asked how the e-mail filters can be backed-up. Back then, the suggestion was to locate the msgFilterRules.dat in the profile folder.

I just created a new user profile in Thunderbird 91.9.0 and I created some new filters, but the file msgFilterRules.dat hasn't appeared in the profile directory. Has the file been changed? Any tips on how to back-up the filters? Using Ubuntu 20.04.

SOLVED: one has to do the following steps:

1. Go to Help>More troubleshooting information>Profile Directory > Open directory 2. Right click, open in Terminal 3. type the command "find . -name 'msgFilterRules.dat'

this will list all the filters, dependent on different e-mail servers

I am running Firefox 91.9.0esr and would like to know how to resize the URL / Address bar. I have found out how to resize the search bar with the following changes in about:config and using userChrome but setting #urlbar-container {max-width: 100px !important;} does not work:

=======================

browser.urlbar.disableExtendForTests = True browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus = False

1) Type about:config in the browser's address bar. 2) Confirm at the prompt that you will accept the risk and to view all. 3) Search for the following configuration preferences and set them all to FALSE (go slow):

browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus = False browser.urlbar.update1 = False browser.urlbar.update1.interventions = False browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips = False browser.urlbar.update1.view.stripHttps = False

browser.urlbar.maxRichResults = 0 (Default = 10)
