I'm a little surprised they've taken away the option of choice when it comes to downloading files. But what's most annoying, is the manager opens u and drops down blocking my view of the page, much less that it makes ms stop and think about what I am about to download.

I do not understand the purpose of this. The old way was safer, cleaner and less annoying. How can, or am I able to get that "choice" back?

When searching for a fix I have seen that that there is/was a similar feature in the Edge browser but it can be undone. I feel Firefox users deserve that option.

Thank you.

Thank you.

I cannot sent email to one specific recipient. I have two accounts, one through gmail and one through AT&T. When I try and sent an email to this one recipient from either account, the File/Send Now function is grayed out. Ctrl-Enter does not work either. This is the only recipient I cannot send mail to. I've sent test email to several other recipients with no problem. Obviously, I'm not getting any kind of 'email blocked' type of message, since nothing is being sent out.

My Thunderbird version is 91.9.0 (32-bit)

Any ideas why this is happening?

TIA for any help.

I have recently moved from Outlook to Thunderbird as Outlook developed a problem communicating with my Virgin Media email accounts. I am slowly finding my way around Thunderbird, but am experiencing a problem with some of my sub folders. This only applies to Virgin Media accounts.

I have looked at previous questions on a similar topic and have tried the simpler solutions (the ones applying to advanced users are Greek to me)! Unfortunately, they haven't solved my problem.

If I go to account settings and uncheck the "show only subscribed folders" box, the greyed out sub folder disappear. However, right-clicking on the folder heading and selecting subscribe and attempting to subscribe to the folders there, doesn't work.

Is there a simple process I can go through to access these sub folders?

I was just updated to version 100 and now the background in the sites I visit, ebay for example, are totally black where they used to be white. I've set my firefox theme to "light" as recommended in another thread, restarted my computer, but to no avail. I now have a light background/black letter tab bar but every site is black where it used to be white. Thanks for a simple answer, I'm not highly technically skilled.

Hello! Please, implement the built-in speed dial, like in Opera and Vivaldi. It's extremely convenient and useful, lots of people need this. I've been using Firefox for more than 10 years and I hate your stupid "Firefox Home" page (sorry) on desktop and Android with icons that add automatically and I can't change and locate. It's inconvenient and completely useless. It would be great if you create something like Opera 12.17 or 12.18 had. In addition, please remove the "close" button in the last tab. I know that I can do it via the "config mode" (browser.tabs.closeWindowWithLastTab), but it's not user-friendly. It's inconvenient when you close the tab just to return home, but the whole browser closes. It makes me nervous. Thank you in advance! You are doing a great job, wish you good luck, and hope that one day Firefox will be more popular than Chromium-based browsers.

In the email client I have just come from the Unread folder contains all unread messages irrespective of the folder they might be in. The Unread filter in Thunderbird appears to relate only to the highlighted folder. I have many folders, the list being long not all are visible on the 'home' view. This means that messages in folders far down the list are only visible if I scroll down looking for them. Is there a way to modify the Unread filter to ensure that all folders are searched for unread messages and displayed together? I am using TB 91.8.1.

This problem just started today. I am very angry. what is going on with Firefox? Websites are filled to the brim with annoying ad's. and you tube videos are constantly interrupted with ad's!!!!! What is with all the ad's? This problem has not existed until today. Please STOP this! And, No, I can not just wait a few seconds then click on "skip ads" because I am looking at videos on a computer screen while sitting away from the computer in a chair so constantly having to get up, walk to the computer, click on "skip ads", walk back to my chair is an annoyance! Just stop with all the ads!

First, I apoligize if this is not correctly posted here but this kind of fit multiple categories.

I love Firefox and have used it for quite a long time. However, recently I have had multiple issues, most which have not been resolved. This issue however needs to get fixed because I cannot do this every time. For some reason, if I close the browser and open it again, my account has been disconected and it wants me to log in again. I did find a post regarding this from 10 months ago which a user stated the following:

"Your ‘logged-in’ status is stored in special cookies. If the cookie is removed, you are logged out.


You may be in Private Browsing mode or told Firefox not to remember.

Type about:preferences#privacy<enter> in the address bar. The button next to History, select Use Custom Settings.

Turn off Always Use Private Browsing Mode Turn on Remember My Browsing And Download History At the bottom of the page, turn on Clear History When Firefox Closes. At the far right, press the Settings button. Turn on ONLY Cache and Form And Search History leaving the others off."

I followed this hoping it would be the end of it but it still keeps on happening. If I can't get a solution to this, I will have to use another browser. I hate to think that will happen as no other browser has been as good a fit as Firefox but as I am sure you can imagine, this is getting to be too difficult of a process to do 10-20 times a day.

Thank you for reading and I hope someone has some sort of idea on how I might overcome this annoyance. Stay safe and healthy!

When I reply to an e-mail using Thunderbird, quoted text appears (in Thunderbird) with a quote bar on the left as expected.

However, when the recipient gets the message in Outlook or GMail, the quote bars are missing. In GMail quoted text is indented and a slightly different color (though it's hard to see the difference). In Outlook the quoted text is just indented.

How do I get Thunderbird to include quote bars for quoted text in the sent message?

If I format the message (with quote bars) using markdown in a browser, and then cut/paste the formatted message into Thunderbird, then it appears as expected to recipients using Outlook and GMail. But that's a painful way to compose replies to Outlook and GMail users (IOW everybody I reply to).

I am having difficult connecting to mailboxes in Plesk Obsidian on a VPS. I can set up the mailboxes in Plesk and make a note of the password. I then go into TB and start the 'Add Mail Account' process. All goes well at first. I get a green message saying 'Configuration found by trying common server names' (automatic connection). When I click 'Done' TB whirrs for a bit and then comes back with a green message showing a tick and 'Checking Password' but an orange message saying 'Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password'. If I try manual configuration I get a similar sequence (using ports 995 and 465, SSL/TLS and 'Normal password').

I do not have this problem when working with cPanel (on a different server, but very similar mailboxes and security settings). This suggests to me that there's something amiss in my Plesk settings, but what could it be?

I have searched around without success. Most articles that might help are for TB 31 (even the Plesk Obsidian on-line manual). Any suggestions, please?
