Because many websites ignore my choice of a dark theme (both in Windows and in Firefox) I tried using color management in my Firefox Settings to force white text on a black background. This had the desired effect on websites, but unfortunately also applies to plug-ins, some of which (like uMatrix) depend on changes of background color to convey information or have dark icons which become invisible on the dark background. Is there any way I can have my cake and eat it too?

Ok so my Firefox automatically updated and I never has the sync bs enabled so all my bookmarks have gone (thanks Mozilla)

No 7 of my add-ons "aren't yet supported" seems the cheap brown Indian programmers dropped support for these plug-in without which Firefox is rubbish.


Firefox was supposed to be all about user protection and data protection etc, now it seems like I will have to go and download the older previous version of Firefox from some dodgy APK website. The irony, it's expected when you got an Indian at the helm.


Oh and it would appear the "add image" browse button don't work, are the Indians also responsible for this too?

Man everything these Indians touch gets messed up, including Microsoft windows and office.

I use firefox for reading pdfs a lot, and i would really like to use page up and page down for their proper functions when doing so rather than having to scroll. the issue is these keys dont move a full page height, they are slightly too small. thus the pages quickly become misaligned requiring scrolling to rectify. a very minor but very annoying problem that i assume has a simple fix but i cant figure it out. help with this would be greatly appreciated!

Hello, I am using Firefox 101.0.1 (64-bit) on windows 11 Pro

I am unable to search through tags in firefox address bar as explained here in this documentation https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/address-bar-autocomplete-firefox

with that said, the problem is only with "+ tagname" not working, as I am able to filter through bookmarks using "* bookmark" and history and tabs. However, for tag search with "+", firefox doesn't work.

Kindly help,

Here is some additional information I collected based on other similar issues that might help.

Not, sure if the search byTag function is removed from Firefox or not ??

Same issue as [this poster] . I've seen no correlation between pixelsPerPx and cursor size, but have noticed this behavior doesn't occur in Manjaro's version of FireFox, so I started asking myself, Self, "what might the differences be here?" Answer I got back: they (Ubuntu 22.04) have bowed to the god of SNAPpiness, and Manjaro still hasn't (gets updates from Mozilla rather than the snap store).

Am I on to something here? What else could be the difference between the two flavors of Linux? Any help would be greatly appreciated, my tired eyes have forced me to change default browser to Chrome or Edge, both of which don't seem to respect my privacy like Firefox. Interesting to note that Thunderbird doesn't have the "flea-size cursor" and it also is not using snap for updates.

I'm running the 102.0b8 (64-bit) release.

When I view the inbox for my Yahoo account, by default it shows only Unread. The Quick filter is NOT on(see attached). If I select the Unread Quick filter the display does NOT change, except in green it shows "67 messages".

If I type All in the quick filter box it shows unread messages and a count of 163 messages.

Does anyone know how I can reset this behavior?

I have, very reluctantly, had to stop using Windows Live Mail, because gmail will no longer support it. It was a great email program and it did everything I needed. Thunderbird would seem to be the nearest thing I can find to replace Live Mail - but there seems to be some quite staggering basic functions that are missing from it. Maybe I'm alone in wanting to include a picture or two in my emails..? - not as attachments, but as part of 'the visual letter', within the text? Live Mail must be 20 years old at least - but in Live Mail I could insert an image; drag the corners to resize it; add a box rule if I wanted to; and send it on it's way. In 21stC Thunderbird I can, with many a dialogue box, insert an image... but even when I've worked out how to 'resize it', it doesn't actually reduce the file size of the image sent..! So a 7MB image, when 'resized' to something less than 1MB... still actually gets transmitted as a 7MB image - and takes forever! So my question is. How come an ancient, now almost defunct program like Live Mail, is twenty times more agile and user-friendly than 'up-to-date' Thunderbird? And before anyone mentions 'add-ons' - Live Mail did all of this straight out of the box! No 'add-on' searching or anything else required. But maybe including a picture or two in an email is a fairly revolutionary concept? With thanks for your thoughts.

I recently started using the archive option manually, by right-clicking emails and selecting "Archive".

I've noticed that for some, very few, emails, the "Archive" option is not there.

I can manually mark it as read and move it to the archive folder, but I'm trying to work out why the option is not available as it usually is.

I've added the senders address to my contact list, and Junk filter is turned off.

I've attached two images showing the right-click context menu in both cases.

I appreciate that there is a ton of functional tools working well and that there are an equal number of problems backlogged, and I appreciate all the good hard work and the genuine help that is done. Having said that,

WHY IN THE HELL HAS MY HISTORY BEEN HIJACKED? I am forced to use fOOGLE fHROME by UNINTELLIGENT FORCES but I use FIREFOX FOR A HANDFUL OF IMPORTANT THINGS. I need to revisit a VERY IMPORTANT WEBSITE LAST VISITED a few months ago, which should be easily spotted but when I OPENED MY HISTORY AND CAN ONLY SEE MOUNTAINS OF fOOGLE GARBAGE.

I read that you guys went corporate, but I didn't think you would sell out to fOOGLE. You used to be the best. Now you are subservient to the worst. It's a damn shame; no wonder everyone is losing trust in Foxzilla.

Now I'm forced to waste this time (a second time, as I was stupid enough to click on Share Data below which wiped out my previously more polite comment/question).

I have been using Outlook (Office 2010, Windows 7) for many years for multiple e-mail accounts, including about 6 Gmail accounts and 1 "other" IMAP e-mail account. I have "rules" that copy certain types of e-mails into specific folders in different accounts. I have separate inboxes for each account. But now, G-mail no longer can work with Outlook from Office 2010. I purchased Office 2021 but that will not work with Windows 7. And my computer and multiple scanners and other software will not work with newer Windows... Therefore, I'm looking for another e-mail client that will work with my multiple Gmail and other accounts and permit automatic copying and moving of certain types of messages between folders. Also to have MANY folders in one particular (non Gmail) account. Can I configure Thunderbird to perform these tasks? If not, is there any other e-mail client that would be more suitable for me? Thank you.
