Hi. Thunderbird is not showing all of my folders, there are about 40 missing. The option for ALL is checked in Folders. I used to have access to these folders but now they are gone. I use SKY as my email provider which is linked to Yahoo. All my folders are visible when I use Windows Mail. I have used Thunderbird for at least 10 years and do not want to move away if possible. Could the fact that Thunderbird is not supported by Yahoo be the problem? The IMAP & SMTP settings are correct as I do not have any problems receiving or sending emails. The folders do exist on the Yahoo mail site. I am using Windows 11.

I would be grateful for any help or guidance.

I'm wondering where the buttons for extensions/add-ons have their locations stored? I.e. I might have a tab-renamer extension button on one row, and firefox relay, privacy mode, and adblocker on another row. Obviously what row and what positions in the row the buttons occupy(relative index perhaps) are stored, but where?

I can't stop Thunderbird 102.3. threading all messages. I want threading only as an option. I've tried 'untick' on Menu>View >Threading>All, but it won't untick.

I had many repeated messages that TB couldn't be updated, but I have installed 102.3.0 and it seems to work in all other respects.

hi, I am new to Thunderbird (v102.3.0/64-bit) and just tried to import some "Folder" trial from Eudora to Thunderbird before full scale import

here is some findings after several trial : 1/ Many Many Import/ Export Tools, most of them failed to import. No messages were shown in TB

2/ ImportExportTools NG_v12.0.1 (AddONs) - total no. of messages was imported OK, but few of emails was shown in "BLANK" without content. - it was not successfully

3/ 4n6 MBOX Converter 4.6 - I finally found this one, it was perfect to import all messages successfully, but the Last Sub-Folder Name was added in xxxx.Thunderbird.

For Example : under same folder tree Parent Folder Name OK Second Sub-Folder Name OK Third Sub-Folder Name OK "Last" Sub-Folder Name NG => become xxxx.Thunderbird

Bro, how could I change this settings instead of rename over hundreds folder name ?? or any setting before Import and keep my original folder name ??

Photo 1 = Folder Name condition after Import Photo 2 = Settings shown in 4n6 MBOX Converter 4.6 before Export

Question: how do I create a desktop shortcut which opens a new single instance of Firefox with a single tab showing a specific URL ?

Running WIN10. I have used FF w Google for about 20 years, and always had new searches open in same window, new tab. Following recent refresh of FF, that seems to be not possible. Links open in new tab, but not searches. In about:config the browser.search.openintab setting is True

I have closed and reopened FF, and closed and reopened WIN10.

What might be over-riding this? Many thanks!

I previously had the NoScript extension. I disabled it in preferences and restarted Firefox. It seems like one of these moz-extension:// windows were open at the time, so when I try to launch Firefox, it tries to re-create moz-extensions:// windows and dies.

I can’t start Firefox. I can’t start Firefox in --safe-mode. I’m happy to provide any debug info needed.

From my point of view, the setting " What should Firefox do with other files?" has been added in the current ESR version.

"What should Firefox do with other files?" ("Wie soll Firefox mit anderen Dateien verfahren?") . "Save files" ("Dateien speichern") . "Ask whether to open or save files" ("Fragen, ob Dateien geöffnet oder gespeichert werden sollen")


How can I control/change this setting using mozilla.cfg?


By the way:

// What should Firefox do with other files? - Wie soll Firefox mit anderen Dateien verfahren? lockPref("applications-ask-before-handling", false);

// What should Firefox do with other files? - Wie soll Firefox mit anderen Dateien verfahren? lockPref("applications-ask-before-handling", true);

works detectably via about:config but does not change the setting for "What should Firefox do with other files?".

During composition of a plain-text message, the characters are displayed in a small fixed-width font, even though: {Preferences > General > Language & Appearance > Fonts & Colors > Default font} is set to Arial

How can I change the displayed font to a larger proportional font, such as Arial?

(Note that {Preferences > General > Language & Appearance > Fonts & Colors > Default font > Advanced > Font Control > Use fixed width font for plain text messages} determines the font displayed for received plain-text messages, not the font used in composing them.)

Release after release Firefox is adding more shortcuts, which is nice, but it also interferes with shortcuts people use to enable/disable extensions.

Is there a way to completely disable a given Firefox shorcut without having to rebuild it? Ideally Firefox should have a friendly way to change that (UI or config file), but I accept editing binaries files.

Also, why extensions with shortcuts like Shift+D are treated as invalid and get removed?

My Firefox (Windows 10) updated to 105.0 this morning. I have https://www.google.co.uk/ as my homepage and Firefox always used to focus on the Google webpage search bar on startup.

Now it focuses on the address bar instead (i.e. https://www.google.co.uk/ is selected). How can I make it focus on the webpage search bar on startup again instead?

I already found this thread from last year https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1334131 and tried changing browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar to false but it didn't have any noticeable effect and the issue is still present.

Many thanks.

See abstract. Updated to Firefox V105.0 today, and now the cursor starts in the address bar, instead of the search box middle of the page. I have tried that "about:config handoff" fix and it doesn't work for me. I think this is about the third or fourth time we have lost the "cursor starts off in the search box" functionality in the last few years, after a Firefox update. Can you code writers leave it in the search box? Please?

The hotkey for add-on "600% sound volume" has been broken since the last version of 103. (now 105.0 still not fixed) The hotkey is "Ctrl+Shift+v", which opens the pop-up window of the add-on, and then it allows using arrow key and number to tweak the volume bar. Now all hotkey not working. The arrow keys do not work even if you manually open the pop-up window.

I have a problem where Thunderbird automatically replies to emails sent from a company or university. Some of these emails are marked as junk, but others not. For example, I'll get an email from Google about a security alert (when logging in through my browser), and Thunderbird will send a reply to 3hxUVYwgTDSYPQ-TGRNaCEEQWPVU.IQQING.EQOTaCP.T.IWaVQPIOCKN.EQO@gaia.bounces.google.com. How can I stop this from happening? Each of these replies ends up in my inbox, effectively doubling the amount of emails I get.

I'm trying to switch over from Outlook, which I've been using for like 20 years, to Thunderbird completely. My ISP keeps jerking us around with account setting within Outlook and I'm tired of messing with them. One thing I did in Outlook was use one email as a document/notepad. All I had to do was open the message and then select 'Edit Message' under 'Other Actions'. Basically I was now in MS Word editing a document. Does Thunderbird have any comparable tool? I tried the Add-On 'Header Tools Lite' but the text wasn't plain text. OR, is there a way to open a MS document within the Thunderbird program? If I can't edit the contents of a message's body maybe I could open a Word document from within Thunderbird and do my editing. Thanks in advance. BTW - Thunderbird is sure a nicely put together mail program. I use it all the time even before the switch.
