Hi!! I have imported an mbox file in TB Local folder and have been trying to move them to my gmail inbox. However, I am encountering two problems and would really love if someone could help. 1. The upload only runs for some 139 mails and throws an error. Even if I keep redoing the copy, the number increases in multiples of 139 for like 4-5 times and then if the whole migration is left unattended for 1-2 hours, the count of mails copied to gmail comes down automatically. 2. Although my gmail inbox in TB reflects 400-500 mails, the gmail inbox actually when opened using a browser reflects only 94 mails.

Screen width scaling changes when there is a wider graphic on a page

When reading certain Web pages such as this one https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2021/06/17/economy-needs-prosperous-london-whether-north-likes-not/

the screen width changes to match the graphic when it gets loaded, meaning that from that point onwards you have to scroll the page left and right to be able to read it. You could also zoom out, but that usually makes the text so small it's unreadable.

This doesn't happen on Chrome browsing the same page, the graphic is scaled to fit the screen width rather than the screen width scaling to fit the graphic.

If you are worried about the graphic becoming unviewable if it is scaled to the screen width, perhaps it can be kept at original scale but so can the rest of the text on the page, so you can continue to read sensible sized text without scrolling left/right, and only need to scroll/zoom if you want to see the full width graphic.

The first two screen shots attached are from FF, the second two are the same page but in Chrome.

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.

Hi!

  1. FF removed the RSS button to discover feeds. Which sucks.
  2. But it sucks even more that the feature to subscribe to feeds via external services was also removed.
  3. I also can't view feeds, even if I find one manually.

New, I saw solutions to the first one, but there of little to no use on their own. Downloading text files with feed items in xml format is pretty useless. I want to be able to view a feed and subscribe to it.

i have some custom search engines on Firefox Android 89 (settings > search > add search engine > other).

i noticed that Firefox seems to be ordering the search engines in an arbitrary order.

when i first add the searches, they appear in the order that they are added.

but after the phone is restarted (note: not the browser, the phone), the search engines are ordered in a different way.

this same order shows up in both the settings search engine list (settings > search) and also the search engine selection list (url bar > search engine)

i have observed: - it is not sorted by alphabetical by engine name - it is not sorted by alphabetical by engine url (with or without protocol prefix) - it is not sorted by order added - it is deterministic: if i delete an engine and re-add it, even if i name it something different, after a phone restart it'll still return to the same position it was before

so my questions are: 1. how exactly does Firefox sort the search engines? 2. how do i set a custom order for the search engines?

thanks!

I used to tag messages - with 12 different colours depending on category/status - directly from the Tool bar menu. Now the icon is greyed and I have to right-click in the message to bring up the drop-down menu. I know it's only 3 clicks instead of 2, but it feels clunky. This has only happened since the latest updates?

Can anyone help? I looked at Keyboard shortcuts but they only use 0-9, and I have 0-12, all of which I need.

Thank you:-)

I recently had to replace a disc (by disc copy) containing my Thunderbird 78.11.0 email data. Everything appears to be working now except for two things.

1: The "Manually sort folders" V2.0.6 add-on no longer works. When I select the "Sort folders" tab I get a pane without the "Move up" and "Move down" buttons even though they still appear in the "Sort accounts" tab.

2: One of my sub folders cannot be renamed: the rename and delete options are missing when I right-click the folder. I have tried "Repair Folder" but this has no apparent effect.

Any suggestions?

I'm using Ubuntu 21.04, with Firefox Version 89.0.1

I like my window control buttons to the left, and I prefer them on the top bar. In Version 89.0.1, I'm now stuck with two sets of window control buttons.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/906698

So that was asked 9 years ago, and I tried adding those lines to my userChrome.css in the chrome folder of my profile directory. Sadly, that solution no longer works in Version 89.

See the attached image for my userChrome.css file, and how ridiculous it looks with two sets of window controls.

Please help me remove the minimize, maximize and close buttons when I maximize my firefox window.
