I am starting to hate your updates.

Every time settings are removed, things are changed, using becomes more complicated and there is no guidance. Once it wiped out all of my saved bookmarks. Every. Single. One. Hundreds of hours of research gone.

After this last one, my new tab page settings disappeared along with all of the shortcuts. My bookmarks in the header also disappeared. Where did they go? Unknown. How to change this? Unknown? That option no longer appears in the settings menu. Or if it does, it was renamed/relocated. I looked everywhere it should logically appear.

My bookmark shortcut disappeared - it is no longer an option to add a site from the browser header. Where did it go? Unknown. How to change this? Unknown. That option no longer appears in the Settings menu. Or if it does, it was renamed/relocated.

Why make using your browser more complicated? I get tired of having to rebuild my browser settings every time you folks update. When an update includes drastic changes, we should be warned and instructions for accessing the old settings included.

I run Thunderbird in Dark Mode under Windows 10. When I try to forward a message which was in Light Mode (which most of them are), the frowarded message appears OK, but the area of screen above it where I want to type new text is also now in white with white writing, so I can't see anything other than the cursor. I've tried to change the font color, but that doesn't work - it remains white on a white background.

Hi,

is there a way to change the start direction of shift+arrow left/right in the address bar when it suggests an address for completion? It's the other way around in chrome and I got very used to it over the past years. now since I switched to firefox recently it's annoying me somewhat that I can't use this shortcut which I used like 20+ times a day before.

Here is an example, I'm starting to type an Address and then after 3-4 letters starting to press shift+arrow left/right. In Chrome it moves from where I stopped typing (which makes more sense for me at least): https://screencloud.de/638c84d6e432c.gif In Firefox is starts from the end of the suggested URL (which is kinda useless in most cases): https://screencloud.de/638c8507d973f.gif

If there isn't an option for that I'd suggest adding one maybe, cause It's really helpful to quickly correct somehing without having to touch the mouse ot type the entire address out by hand if the suggested url is really long.

Thanks a lot in advance!

Explore possibilities of using System Theme 1.0 in Firefox 91.9.1esr and later.

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.

Hi, hope you're well!

Is there any way to stop this program from relentlessly deleting (important work) emails out my inbox? I have tried every solution posed online when I search the issue, but low and behold every once in a while, when I restart the program, there goes another bunch of emails into the ether? I've looked into the advanced mail.purge settings amongst many others, nothing works, it even deletes 'starred' emails despite that check box being ticked.

I really love every other aspect of this email client, but this is infuriating, can someone please help?

I'm running it in IMAP, because you know, synced email over various platforms is way easier.......at least it should be.

Any knowledge is hugely appreciated, I'm on the brink of switching to a far inferior platform, and really don't want to.

Thanks in advance.

Proof of Concept

Ensure you have at least 2 languages dictionaries installed - I have English (United States), and French.

  1. Go to: Settings > Composition
  2. In Spelling ensure "Enable spellcheck as you type" is checked
  3. Uncheck ALL languages (English (United States), and French for me)
  4. Close Settings
  5. ...
  6. Open a new message
  7. Close the message
  8. ...
  9. Go to Settings > Composition
  10. One of the languages is now checked. (Bug)

~~~~~~~~~~~ The reason I unselect all languages in Settings, is that I don't want a default language when I compose a message. I want to CHOOSE which of my languages I want to spell check with. The main reason I do this is that since 102, we can select multiple languages, which personally I believe is a bad idea, or at least the developers should implement a modifier key to select on and unselect all the others in one click.

In any case, we have a bug here. Thanks!

Since the last Firefox update, my logins are no longer saved from one session to the next...and neither are my devices, even when I specifically give the site permission to save the current device. I have to log in to most sites (email, bill pay, etc.) every single time, and in most cases the site insists on sending me a text or an email to verify it's me. This is entirely new behavior since the last update, and I can't figure out how to get around it. Suggestions??

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).

How can I achieve this on Firefox Nightly for Android?

On a few web pages involving maps (e.g., at https://www.pogomap.info), moving my finger on the Apple wireless mouse causes the display to zoom instead of scroll, and often it is so sensitive that the slightest finger movement causes uncontrolled zooming. Holding down the control or command key while touching the mouse does not change the behavior. I looked at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1344674 -- "uncontrolled zooming" and went to about:config and then mousewheel*action, but the parameters I see there seem to be set appropriately. Specifically, mousewheel.default.action and mousewheel.default.action.override_x are both set to 1 (Scroll normally). I also looked at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1344894 -- "disable or lock zoom" and changed mousewheel.with_meta.action to 1, but the zooming didn't change so I put it back to 3. (I assume I don't have to restart Firefox to invoke the change.) Any more suggestions?

Hi everybody,

is there any add-on for version 102.5 (Win 10 Home), which can delete attachments from multiple e-mails at one time? I used Attachment Extractor before but unfortunately doesn't work on this version. Is there any other option?

I know, there is a possibility to downgrade Thunderbird to the 88 version, but it is the last solution for me.

Thanks in advance.

This folder for me just redirects bookmarks to the main bookmarks manager directory. It serves no purpose and I can't even remove it. It's an eyesore that I want to eliminate completely, not just from the toolbar as you can see I already did, but in general as a whole!

I have a Macbook with a Finnish keyboard layout.

Safari, Chrome and Edge, by default, support command+ö and command+ä for going back and forward in history. This is because Finnish/Swedish (they're the same) keyboard layout doesn't have [ or ] available.

While command + back arrow and command + forward arrow still work, those are useless as they get disabled when a text field is focused.

I tried to work around this with an extension (shortkeys), but even they don't support using umlauts for shortcuts.

I'm trying to adopt Firefox but I can't unless this gets fixed.

Thank you.

I use the Dragon NaturallySpeaking add-on to navigate Firefox (and my entire computer) by voice. Recently the extension stopped working properly, and when I tried to uninstall and re-install the plug-in, it would not work at all.

This is the installation link Nuance provides: https://dnsriacontent.nuance.com/15/setup/ffinstall.html.

When you try to click the "Install" button, nothing happens. This has caused Dragon to stop working with almost the entirety of Firefox. Please advise on if an update is coming.
