The search engines I've added do not appear in the list after clicking the green + sign in the search box and they do not appear in the list in the options either. I used the "add more search engines" found in the bottom of the search engines list to find the missing engines and add them again, but when I find the engine I want to add there is only the "remove" button. So this tells me the missing engines in the list are still there but not accessible. I tried removing the added search engine and then adding it again but this did not make them appear in the search engine list. Everything was working fine until getting the last update before Firefox 89. Is there a way to fix this???

Hello, I need your help with removing a duplicate bookmark star from the URL bar, please. The thing is I already have moved it to the top left corner just as I prefer. However, the star in the URL field is impossible to kill. I have tried to use the customization menu but it does not allow me to drag off this annoying URL star. And, even if I right-click it in hope to find something like "remove/hide the Bookmark star" this star does not react to right-clicks. Also, after some research I have not found the way to do it via about:config :-( _

  Can you help me remove the star in the URL bar? The star in the top left corner though should stay because this is where I need it, but the star in the URL bar should go away.

PS this problem appeared after the "wonderful' June GUI redesign. Before that I was able to remove the star easily from the address bar. I am attaching a screenshot below:

On Firefox 90 on Ubuntu 20.04, when a site asks for camera and microphone permissions, it’s not possible to select any device anymore. It just shows the default camera and the default microphone.

Earlier Firefox releases used to show a selection list for the camera and also another one for the microphone.

My default camera is the one built into the laptop and I would like to use an external one that has adequate picture quality.

Can you please help selecting a camera with the new Firefox?

Firefox used to have an 'email link' menu option, which would open the email program defined in the Firefox preferences. In my case Gmail. This option has been replaced by the 'Share' menu options, where choosing 'Mail' opens Apple's mail program, not the Gmail which is my preferred e-mail client. I'm using MacOS 11.6. The 'Share' menu options are Apple system extensions and I can't see a way to add Gmail to those. Does anybody have a solution?

Hi there.

I recently upgraded Thunderbird to 91.3.0 on my Mac. Since then the number of unread messages in the dock icon changed from the full count to "99+". That's not, what I want - I want to see quickly if I received new messages, for example when I use the app switcher. I did not find a way to change it back to how it was before. Any ideas?

Thank you!

when I click on a PDF on a website, Firefox does what is specified under Settings/Applications for "Portable Document Format (PDF) (application/pdf)". I prefer to open the PDF in the Adobe Acrobat Reader, but apparently, the browser prefers to save PDF files. When I save my preferences "open with Adobe Acrobat Reader", it does that, but the next day, it tries to save the PDF again. This has been so for a long time. An overlooked bug or a feature?

Dark mode - message pane vs new message window

Is there any way to set the Message Pane (ie the F8 preview panel) as having a white background and the Message window (ie the one you type your messages in) with a dark background?

I have dark model enabled. Until recently, the Message Pane showed all my emails with a white background. Clearly this isn't very "dark" but it was useful because I could clearly read all the messages. When I clicked "reply", the new Message window would show things in dark mode (ie with a dark background). I liked this.

Sure, in some cases that would make it difficult to read the original message (which might show the text as black on a dark grey background) but I could always flick back to the Message Pane if I wanted to see it on a white background.

I recently upgraded to TB 91.3.2. Now both the new Message window and the Message (preview) Pane are showing as white (or, if I customise them using Preferences/Language&Appearance/Colours then they are both dark). Is there a way to customise them independently - eg using userChrome.css?
