I have added: Provider for CalDAV & CardDav, and TbSync

Then I go find synchronnization settings, add CalDAV & CardDav account. Either I choose manual or automatic configuration, entering my gmail address and password gets me nowhere. I am asked for server url at best or CardDav server address.

The response is the same regardless or whether I enter google.com as server URL. What am I missing?

I have installed CardBook on TB v78.7.1. I found setup instructions on another website that start out with "Click the CardBook icon". I have no idea where that icon is. I have looked in several places and I am unable to match those instructions to real life.

So what I hope to find here is help with setting up CardBook on TB v78 which is running on Linux Mint 20.1 Cinnamon desktop, to sync with my Google Contacts.

Hi. Yesterday, I browsed thru my Firefox and/or GMail settings, and removed headers and footers from my printed copies of emails and web pages. Which is fine. However, at the same time I must have mistakenly changed a setting so that my print-ready version of an email or web page always displays in B & W, not in color. Although it will print in color, depending on how I have my HP printer set. How can I change that back so the print-ready Print Preview copy displays pics, etc. in color? I forgot what I did. Aarrgh! Please help! Thanks. John Darin

I see that someone has changed the 'Print' feature. Previously, when I wanted to print something from a website, the print feature gave me the option of 'simplifying the page', which reduced the number of pages to be printed significantly. I have tried printing out 2 pieces of information recently and could not find the 'Simplify page' feature. Has this been removed; and, if so, why?

Firefox 86 has introduced a new print preview panel which I like. What I don't like though is that the unit for print margins has changed from millimeter to inch (see screenshot, in German). In previous versions, it was possible to set the unit in the prefs by changing "print.printer_PostScript/default.print_paper_size_unit". Value 0 meant imperial units, value 1 meant metric units. This entry does no longer exist.

There is still the entry "print.printer_printername.print_paper_size_unit" for every printer that's installed. Those values are all set to 1 in my case but this doesn't seem to have any effect.

So how can I set the margins of printed pages in millimeters instead of inches?

I have no idea how it started or why, but in the past couple days anytime I leave my cursor over a paragraph or chunk of text on a website, a black box appears where my cursor is with the text in it in white. If there is a lot of text, there's a sidebar to scroll down in the box. This disappears as soon as I move my cursor, but reappears as soon as I set it near some more text. I assume this is some kind of accessibility or reading feature, but I have no idea how I turned it or how to get rid of it. I've looked online and in my setting and had no luck getting rid of it. Any help would be appreciated!

Hello,

this knowledge base article (Remove the Other Bookmarks folder from the Bookmarks Toolbar) claims that you can display the Other Bookmarks folder on the toolbar since Firefox 85 but it seems to be a lie.

In the screenshots down below, you can see my current settings. The Other Bookmarks folder is missing although my settings are correct.

How can I display the Other Bookmarks folder on the toolbar in Firefox? Thanks for your help!

I have an add-on which is installed from the public add-on store (?). This add-on works quite good.

Nevertheless I made some tiny adjustments in the source to fullfill my needs. I can manually load the file from the add-on manager which works as well.

But as soon as I do one of the two task:

  • restart the whole computer (or logout and login)
  • Check for Update

the manually loaded xpi is gone. It is only the public one available.

==> How to have the manually adapted xpi loaded all the time and the public one not any more?

TB downloading of headers vs. bodies and/or attachements

According to this link, for *unsynchronized* message, the message body remains on the server until the user clicks on the message in TB's message list: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/imap-synchronization#w_synchronization

TB has a Message Synchronizing setting "Keep messages in all folders for this account on this computer", with "Avanced" settings to "Download" "for offline use" on the basis of individual folders. However, I can' find a setting to control whether TB downloads (i) just the headers; or (ii) headers, bodies, and/or attachments.

(1) Is it the case that TB will *always* download just headers until users click on it in the message list, at which point it becomes a "synchronized message" (as defined above) and locally retained in its entirety?

(2) If so, is there a way to have TB always download messages+body+attachments without having to click each one?

(3) On the other end of the bandwidth usage spectrum, is there a way to have TB not even download headers (say, upon startup) until the user actually enters the folder for viewing?

Using an online accounting website, data entry is done through a data grid with a data control.

The accounting software allows for the option to use their own date selection control or to use the Firefox date selection control. I don't like the software's date selection control, I prefer Firefox's. However, when set to the Firefox date selection control AND if the fields in the data entry grid get wider than the screen, Firefox shrinks the date selection control to practically nothingness and the value in the control cannot be seen.

Is there something I can do stop Firefox from doing this?

I've attached an image containing 1. the data entry grid 2. the Firefox date selection control when the data entry grid is wider than the screen 3. the software date selection control when the data entry grid is wider than the screen
