Hi,

 I've just spent an annoyingly long time trying to do something that turned out to be really easy, it was just finding out what to do that made it seem hard.
 The issue of where search results open is completely ignored in the help pages, judging from the number of questions in Support on the issue, that appears to be something of an oversight. As does not displaying the date questions were posted, reading about what applies in an old verion of Ff may not do so in the current one, it didn't in my case.
 I wanted to know how to make the search results from Google on the search bar, open in a new tab, as opposed to the same tab, the current default setting. All it takes is changing the value of: browser.link.open_newwindow, from false to true in about:config.
 Simple to do, finding out that's what you have to do, isn't. 
 I thought I'd suggest that you might consider addressing this matter, I'm sure it would be welcomed by at least some users.
 Anyway, thank you for a great browser.

Hello there.

I am using Mozilla Thunderbird on a windows 11 computer with two screens and Brave as a browser.

I have Thunderbird on the left screen and I have a problem, that can be solved in two, which I can't find either of.

When ever I am watching a movie or something else in fullscreen on the screen where Thunderbird is, I can't see the notifications popping up, as I would, when I do not have a fullscreen feature.

I am looking either for a solution to where the notification for a new email can override this fullscreen or I can move it to my other screen. I can't find anything that can do that.

Can you help me?

My windows 11 laptop is set to reboot when updates are available, they happen when I've put the device to sleep. as a result all the tabs I had open are gone upon restart. Unfortunately, the "history->recently closed tabs" and "startup->settings->open previous windows and tabs" are greyed, I can't seem to find a way to fix this. Any ideas? Note, this is a new laptop, I used PCMover to transfer all my data/programs from an older laptop to this new machine, and that machine was windows 10 (if that would make any difference). Also, I do keep firefox on this machine up to date.

So, I am a Linux user who is used to shell commands like mv or cp. One of their feature is absence of prompts like "Are you sure what you want to replace foo.txt?". Because I have somewhat organized fs, I always know what that file is for and if I can overwrite it.


Now I have to download some files, what I need only for uploading onto another website / reading them once. So, I just download them into my /tmp folder and save them under the same name (so I could just repeat cat command and reduce clutter). But each time I download a file Firefox asks for confirmation to replace my existing file. Are there any config flags to disable those annoying prompts?

I have no idea if it's even possible, but on Desktop I can sort my history in the order I've visited them, from the latest being on top to the ones visited a long time ago towards the bottom (and this should really be the default method for sorting history).

If I open multiple browser windows, each one moves about 1/4 inch to the right of the previous browser window. So if for example I opened 12 new browser windows, the 12th one would end up about 3 inches to the right of the first one. This is most annoying. How do I get each new browser window to open in precisely the same place as the previous browser window already open?

Any help would be much appreciated.

This has been an issue for a while since 102. I've seen others posting about it and there hasn't been any answer yet that reportedly works.

Since 102 and every update following, Thunderbird shows only a dark mode (black/dark grey) background to all the white spaces unless you are using either the default Thunderbird theme, or the Mozilla Light theme. However other themes I have were all previously light-mode and now they are broken.

I have already checked a) hardware acceleration being off/on b) Settings>Language & Appearance> and played with the Use System Colors, Override the Colors Specified.

None of these settings had any effect on any of the themes that have been broken by this.

Attaching screens to illustrate how the 'dark mode' on non-dark themes looks, and the difference between the two Mozilla light modes. I've showed the two default themes that are light mode, and how that looks, and one custom theme exemplifying how the 'dark mode' looks incorrect. Message windows still display as light, but not the rest of the dark space.

It would be nice if this could get fixed. I like my old themes and haven't been able to use one for a long time because of this.

For historic reasons (25 years of use :/ ) I view messages in each mailbox by date, ascending, unthreaded. I'm currently using v.102.2.2 (64 bit) on Ubuntu 20.04.

The global setting of view - > sort -> threaded has just switched on all by itself, bit annoying because at first I thought all sorts of messages had been deleted...

I can change to "unthreaded" on a mailbox by mailbox basis except that I have 14,000-odd mailboxes.

I have changed the global settings using: Edit -> settings -> scroll down, clock on "config editor" button Edit "mailnews.default" Set: mailnews.default_news_sort_order 1 (ascending) mailnews.default_news_sort_type 18 (sort on date) mailnews.default_sort_order 1 (ascending) mailnews.default_sort_type 18 (sort on date)

except that although mailnews.default_news_sort_type was set to 22 (threaded) and I have changed it to 18 on a stable basis (it stays at 18) I never use news and so the value for mailnews.default_sort_type was 18 all along.. and the global sort setting (found by looking at a random mailbox) is still set to "threaded" - as if "mailnews.default_sort_type" is not being read. Ideas?

I noticed this on version 91.13.1. Here is the steps to replicate this bug:

1. Search for a particular persons email address (you have to search exactly for that user or otherwise open a message from that user in the search list)

2. Write new message

3. Enter the email address you just searched for as the recipient and watch as a new tab gets opened containing the previous search result you just looked for.

Here's a video showcasing the problem.

I find this really annoying, since I didn't ask for that search result tab to open itself. I was really hoping this would get fixed in the latest build, but it seems I have to reinstall the old version because there is no added benefit to me of using the new version.

Hej

(Jeg er lidt forvirret over at ende et sted, hvor der "tales" engelsk, når jeg startede på den danske supportside ...)

Endelig er det lykkedes mig at undgå, at Edge konstant installerede sig selv. Det har jeg kæmpet med.

Nu vil jeg gerne spørge om Firefox kan hjælpe mig med at undgå den "reklame" for Edge, der vises de fleste gange, når jeg trykker på "Søg" nede i venstre hjørne.

Den irriterer mig, fordi: 1. Jeg aldrig nogensinde skal have Edge 2. Den tager pladsen for vigtigere ting 3. Krydset til at lukke med forsvinder, når jeg bevæger cursoren derop ad.

Kan I mon hjælpe?

After moving to Firefox 91.9.1esr I found problem with System theme 1.2. The color of tab add button was changed, and the button is not visible with my Windows 7 classic windows system theme. So, I'm trying to find a way to port System theme 1.0 color scheme to newer firefox versions.

Creation of a simple theme with firefox color extension works. But it is unable to recreate the effects related to active and inactive window color changes. As, I had to use bitmap to get the OS blue color transition pattern.

It seems the system theme is stored in omni.ja file. Modification of the omni.ja seems to be not a practical solution. So, it would be a better way to create an addon theme with the same code as the System Theme 1.0.

The first question is, if it will be possible to create a theme with the same code as a system theme has. Will it be able to perform the same way?

The next question is: Where the source code of the system theme is? I was unable to find it in the Firefox source. It seems, it is not stored in any obvious location.
