I'm running TB 78.12.0 and trying to follow this solution: For Windows, open Tools/Options/Advanced/General/Config. editor, or click the 3-bar icon at the upper right, Options/Options/Advanced/General/Config. editor, right-click the preference layout.css.devPixelsPerPx, Modify, and enter a value of 1.20 or 1.25 or 1.5 or 2.0...

This may or may not be immediately applicable to TB 78, but I haven't been able to find the indicated places. I'm not at all tech literate. To be usable by me, all answers would have to include express statements that more advanced users can avoid. Where is "Tools/Options/Advanced/General/Config. editor" in TB 78? Where is "Options/Options/Advanced/General/Config. editor" in TB 78?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi FF experts,

On my old windows laptop, I remember that if I select something and press ctrl+F, it will automatically look for what I have selected. Now I get a new macbook, I find that this feature disappears: command+F will ignore my selected content and just start with my last search. Is this the expected behavior for Mac FF? Can I make it also automatically search my selected text?

FYI, I'm using the latest FF 90.0.2 on both laptops. Thanks!

In Thunderbird all of a sudden (I assume this is a brand new feature came with a recent automatic behind-the-scenes update) every 2nd or 3rd time that I Delete an email or move a message from the Trash to somewhere else I get a pop-up suggesting "The messages you have deleted can be purged from disk. This operation will save about 21.0 MB of disk space. Select the option below to let Thunderbird do this automatically without asking you". That in itself is quite a nuisance but what really bothers me is that the default response is set to yes, Proceed. Unless I expressly click on the Cancel button Thunderbird is going to permanently delete 100% of my deleted emails, yes?? But it is vital that I retain most or many of those deleted messages for later retrieval. It truly does come in handy now and again. I periodically scour the Trash and permanently delete so many extraneous messages, but I clearly don't want to ever delete ALL of them!! I don't want this behavior as default, that Thunderbird is forever demanding this pop-up question of me and if I should accidently hit Return all of some precious resources of mine get obliterated forever! Thank you.

Each time I turn on Thunderbird recently, I get a pop-up box :- Compacting folders, saying, Deleted messages can be purged from disk each time they are deleted from the Inbox. I prefer to purge Deleted messages after a period of time, and not each time I delete an item from the Inbox. How can I stop getting this pop-up repeatedly

Thanks for any help on this.

Also I try to find here C:\Users\%USER5\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\goiedpyu.default-release\extensions but isn't there any other dictionary except that I installed manually from firefox add-ons.


I would like to disable it because sometimes (especially after updated) firefox swap to default

Some of my add-ons have disabled themselves and there is no option to enable. I found a potential solution at this thread https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1276602 but wanted to clarify what to delete in the Profile Folder. I can't continue that thread because it is too old apparently.

The help says to: Delete all extensions* fileS and compatibility.ini in the Firefox profile folder to reset the extensions registry. There is only ONE FILE starting with extensionS. That would be extensions.json

It says to delete extensions* fileS. Could someone please clarify if I'm supposed to delete: extension-preferences.json extension-settings.json extensions Folder

Thank you!

I operate a website in which the body background is black. My background image has a black background. And inside the body, I place a white-background div, which carries the text. My issue is, the scroll trough is some shade of black and the scrollbar is a lesser shade of black.

On any white-body website, I have visible shades of grey and I can see my scrollbar controls.

Where do I go to apply !important CSS rules to my browser interface? I want to establish a suitable color scheme for my scrollbars that override website CSS.

//EDIT: I've found a few typos and fixed them, above. I have then added the text below:.

If I edit the stylesheet to change the body background color on the website, it affects the scrollbar coloring, and ruins the website appearance.

Only if some developer would use the Linux system colors in Firefox so that theme colors are the same in Firefox as they are in the Linux apps that follow the rules, then Firefox would be a much better browser. Is there an add-on that will resolve this issue?

Is there a CSS fix that I can apply? In past decades, websites wanted to color the scrollbars but they are the property of the user, not an extension of the website. What's become of that idea?

I didn't find a suggestion section, please move the post there.

Please, return icons for search engines as was in Firefox <69 and how it's implemented in Vivaldi. I really avoid to update Firefox to "big update" when you changed everything such as interface and addons and themes support. Use themes as earlier would be nice, but without normal search engines icons UI became unusable: list of engines takes more space, search suggestions in list take more space, I must click twice (type a request, click on search engine, click "search").

I updated a group list yesterday, removing some names and adding others. When I sent a group e-mail today, apparently Thunderbird used the old list. There was no way to tell before pressing "send" who actually the e-mail was going to. When I check the group list in the address book, the updated set of names is there.

Two questions: 1) how do I fix this so the updated list is the one Thunderbird uses? 2) how do I prevent this happening in the future - how can I tell the actual list of names that will receive the e-mail, before I send it? (right now it is just the group name under the recipients list)

Thank you!

Hi Mozilla Thunderbird I have an "important" folder in my Gmail. However, it is not seen in my Mozilla Thunderbird. I can access its content when I press "all mail," but having the "important" folder makes it more organized, so I don't have to open Gmail anymore.

Seeing the "Snoozed" and "Scheduled" will be cool too if Thunderbird can do that.

Kindly check the screenshot
