I have 2 keyboards setup. Default is Finnish and secondary for English. For some reason firefox has started to default to english and even though I change it from scrolling on spacebar, it defaults back to english every single time i open / close the keyboard (aka. start typing something again)

I am using the default Samsung keyboard (S20). I tried to remove the English keyboard completly and my phone is now running a single keyboard with FIN only. But for some reason firefox still keeps defaulting to EN-US.

This is really annoying. Any ideas on fixing the issue? This is the only app that keeps doing this.

I have a dual monitor setup with TB on Monitor 2. When I send an email the spell check popup appears at the top left corner of monitor 1 (about as far away from the compose window as possible). This is a new behavior, it used to appear near the compose window on mon. 2.

How can I control where this popup appears?

I've tried simply moving it before sending, but it goes back for the next composition.

Thanks

Somehow Firefox's address bar gets worse and worse every year (I've been using Firefox since 2004). I have it set both on my desktop computer and my Microsoft Surface to just show my bookmarked pages (since I can no longer control what pages show up on the drop down menu otherwise); this used to be fine (other than not being able to bookmark a ton of pages to keep it from being cluttered), but now nothing shows up on my Surface unless I type in the address bar. If I click the bar, nothing happens. It works fine on my desktop. I've messed with different settings trying to figure it out.

I used to use an addon called Oldbar or something to have some control over my address bar like the old days, since Mozilla saw it fit to take that control away from us, but now that addon no longer works. I just want a controlled list of my frequently visited websites. Why bother having a search bar if the address bar STILL tries to do searches? If I wanted to do a search, I would use the search bar. FIX THE ADDRESS BAR.

After the update, Firefox android doesn't respond to button commands (I hold down the home button for the menu as customised in my launcher, which is easier than reaching for the three dots in the upper right corner). This used to work in Firefox and still works anywhere else... I hope this will be fixed.

I don't really see any other real changes, except for fewer options, bottom/top toolbar and ghostery + to top add ons not working....

Hi all,

I am trying to customize my Firefox on Mac because the tabs on top interfere with the menu bar, thus I only want tree-style tab extension to work on the side, with the tabs on top disabled.

I followed this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1184674#answer-1028260 as well as this clear guide on how to create userChrome.css: https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html When I tried to restart the browser, I seemed to have been logged out of my profile, with all customization gone and a standard white (instead of black) menu. I deleted the chrome folder and it is normal again now.

I suspect the userChrome.css file should contain more than just the one line I tried to add: #tabbrowser-tabs { visibility: collapse !important; } ; Is there any location where I can copy my current intra-browser customization into the userChrome.css file?

A week ago I had a smoothly running Thunderbird automatic daily backup facility which worked really well. After installing a new hard drive this week and reinstalling Thunderbird v78, I find that there does not appear to be any backup, import or export add on that will work with this version. Am I mistaken or should I be looking for alternative email software as this facility is important to me with 7 email accounts?

Also, how can I put a password to opening the profile?

Hi, I am pretty hopeful about the new FF with GeckoView. Using it for a bit it seems pretty good, but there are a few issues (79.1.0-beta.1)

First of all, there have been some layout issues, particularly noticeable on Twitter (I do not use apps where a viable mobile site exists). On Twitter, if I press the "retweet" icon it has a little slider that comes up from the bottom with options to just retweet or retweet with comment. In this version, but not in 68.11.0, that slider jitters up and down a bit. Usually if you scroll up or down slightly it then stabilizes, but even then it can be hard to hit the correct option, as if the visual and the interaction area are not quite aligned.

Aside from that there are some UI/UX issues.

On site where there are apps available (bing, twitter, FB, others), FF puts a blue dot notification badge on the triple dot dropdown menu, if you open it it will have an item to "open in app" or "download app" (depending on if installed or not). I don't mind the menu item being there, even though I almost never want it, but I need a way to turn off that blue dot - all such notification badges are very distracting to me, I either respond to them right away (e.g. messages) or I turn them off totally.

The other big issue is tabs, the newer tab layout wastes far too much space, the one in FF 68 was much better... and though I mostly hate taking UI direction from Chrome, mobile tabs is one rare case of them doing it well. Either of those layouts would be much better than the FF79 tab layout.

Oh, and just to make sure... whatever you do, please don't get rid of the option to put the address on the top, I really need that one. I hate to use a Blink browser, but I *will* switch if the URL bar is forced to the bottom.

In Thunderbird, my type size is set to Medium but displays Small on my computer, although the recipients see it as Medium. When I increase the type size using the up-arrow letter to see more clearly what I'm writing, my display becomes Medium, but my email recipients receive a Large-size message. How do I make the type size display correctly on my computer, that is, display in the size I have selected? This problem started when my cat walked on my keyboard, so she must have somehow changed a setting I can't find. Thank you!

I have installed 79.0.2 for Android.

  1. 1. Did Not recognized previous settings, like Dark.
  2. 2. Does Not allow to change Settings/customize menu back to old/previous Tab display.

Usually when browsing most websites like ebay, or looking files in OSX or Windows,

allows to view items/files/folders in different ways...

New Firefox has Gallery View, Previous version had Box view, It should allow user to select how to view/display tabs.

  1. 3. And Dark, should be Hollow Dark.

Tabs background look semi dark purple. Should have more Dark versions...

Like CF.lumen App.

Im gonna roll back / downgrade to v78. Sorry, this version is too weird.

I have just updated to TB 78 (Windows 10) and am slightly regretting it.

I don't like the bright blue icon that appears against each email account name in the folders pane.

I have 9 email accounts and in previous versions a bright blue account name alerts me that new unread mail has arrived in that account. However now (version 78) there is also a bright blue icon against every account name - even accounts that have no new mail and do not need my eyes attracted to them.

I would prefer any of the following: - no account icon - account icon always black - account icon same color as account name (i.e. turns from black to blue if new unread mail arrives)

Is there anyway I can customize version 78 to achieve any of the above?

Thanks.

Does anyone know why Apple OS Voice Control does not work in Thunderbird? I wake up Voice Control, try to dictate a sentence in a new mail message window and nothing shows up. Dictation works in Ms Word, Safari browser, and all other apps.

My Macbook Pro used to have Dictation and Enhanced dictation. With the Catalina OS-- Enhanced Dictation was renamed "Voice Control". Standard dictation remains and it works in Thunderbird, but Voice Control is a lot better. The two cannot run simultanously. I am on 68.10.0 and Mac OS Catalina 10.15.6

Hope Accessibility is important and someone can assist. Wrist injury means I need dictation.

I prefer to read my message in separate windows (as opposed to inline in the main window). So I often end up with quite a few of them hanging around. When I quit Thunderbird, they do not close with the main window.

I looked in options and looked for an add-on. Is the someway to have Thunderbird close all the sub-windows when the main one is closed?

thanks
