A few months ago Firefox decided to double space all the items in menus. Reading through the forums many people didn't like this because of the amount of space that the menus now take up. Fortunately there was a work around, by setting 'browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled to false they returned to normal

This morning Firefox my got upgraded and the double spacing problem is back again. However there appears to be a bug with the setting and the menus won't return to normal. I'm now stuck with stupidly large menus that won't fit on the screen and lots of painful scrolling.

Does anybody have an alternative workaround until this is fixed?

I'd guess there's already a discussion regarding this, but I don't know where. Getting rid of the borders when there are multiple tabs open and turning things gray makes for a far worse browsing experience for me. Why would one string of undifferentiated text in a long line of tabs make things any easier? It does not.

I've found a helpful site that allows turning off the new theme, but a commenter advises that that option too will soon be disabled: https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-old-classic-theme-and-ui-in-firefox-89-and-later-versions/

Is there an add-on that keeps the "classic" theme? I've googled how to provide feedback. One of those links is dead. What's the best way to make my thoughts known?

People love tech, but the older I get the more I see how it demonstrates a lack of ownership, that nothing is really yours on your devices, that what you're comfortable with is only one weekly update away.

I recently updated to Thunderbird 91.1.2 and I really like most of it but there is one feature that I would like to restore from previous versions. I preferred it when the attachments pane was in the top right corner. Now it has been moved below the message (when composing a message) and for me it's more difficult to keep track of my attachments. Is there a way to move in back? Thanks for your help

Good evening, I updated Thunderbird 91.2.0 - 64bit on Windows 10. I wanted to change the email signature. I did as always, going to the Account Settings and entering the HTML code generated with Thunderbird in the text box for signature and selecting the "Use HTML" flag. The problem is that at the bottom of the Account Settings tab I can no longer find the OK button to confirm the settings and when I close the Account Settings tab, the signature is lost. I kindly ask you for help. Thank you all

My question is, there is a menu bar between the headers (top) and were you read the message (bottom)in the middle of the screen. It displays from, subject and to information on the left and on the right has the reply,delete etc tabs. I am not sure what this bar is called.

In any event , I see there is a arrow to minimize it to one line, which is what I want. How ever the problem with that, the tabs disappear, which I dont want. In other words,what I want in that menu is the from info and the tabs to the right. I dont need the subject and to info to show

In version 78, I had a add on that made it one line, but left the tabs button showing. What can I do to make this happen in version 91 Thanks in advance

Hello,

Since updating to TB 91, if I pick a theme it will stay active as long as TB is open. Once I close TB and then reopen, it defaults back to the TB light Theme. Also, the same think happens with Add_ons. If I activate an add on like Frame White after closing and re opening the add on feature is gone. I'm using macOS 10.15.7 Catalina.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciate. Also, with 91, all my the text is light grey on black background or blue on black background and really hard to see. Is there a way to change these background colors?

Thanks,

Dennis

I have a certain add-in installed that Firefox sometimes says is "slowing things down" and recommends deactivating. Thing is, it's my password manager, so I absolutely never want to deactivate it, and am quite okay if it occasionally slows things down, and would like to tell Firefox to never suggest turning off this particular add-in, while still leaving that feature on for other add-ins I might care less about. Is there anyway off adding it to an "ignore it if this add-in slows things down a bit" list?

Trouble with message filtering using IMAP

I'm having difficulty getting message filters to do the job I want. My primary email account is an Outlook 365 account, accessed from Thunderbird via IMAP. This problem started with version 91.2.0, when I moved to a "native" connection to my Outlook account. In the past I used the ExQuilla extension, and the filtering worked as desired.

It seems that message filters are being applied to ALL of my mail folders, rather than just my primary inbox. The problem is that filter "A" moves a message from my primary inbox to an alternate folder, then filter "B" comes along and moves it again. It doesn't seem to matter what order I declare the filters, since the filter list is executed more than once.

For a simple example, I have the following:

Filter A: "Whitelist": Matches any "From" address from a trusted sender/domain; move message to "Whitelist" folder.

Filter B: "Other": "Does not match" if "From" my domain; move message to "Other" folder.

The intent is to apply A, then B, but only to fresh, incoming email. However, filter "B" gets applied to the "Whitelist" folder, effectively undoing its action.

I could solve this by making "Whitelist" and "Other" local folders rather than Outlook (IMAP) folders, but that would limit my access to those emails. What I really need is to run the filters ONLY on a selected folder (i.e., my primary Inbox).

I am experiencing two issues which are bugging me and have checked all settings to make sure they are as they should but am still experiencing issues:-

1 - Autoplay of videos does not work. I have Firefox set to autoplay any video but when I go to YouTube the video starts playing for half a second then stops and I have to click on play every time. I have tried this on other browsers and it works fine, so the issue is related to Firefox specifically.

2 - Auto open of documents - When I click on a link to open a PDF I get the pop up asking me what I want to do with it, despite clicking the box saying "Always do this action from now on" I still get that pop up every time. I have the "open in Firefox" option set in the menu but it is being ignored.

I have disabled any add-ons for Firefox and tried again but the issue still persists so is not being caused by them. Something isn't right and I've been trying to sort this myself for ages, so hopefully someone can either help or confirm there's a bug somewhere in Firefox that needs fixing. Thanks in advance.
