The option button asking about showing remote content does not show up.

When I allow remote content in options/privacy and security, the remote content is not displayed.

I tried:

- restarting in safe more; - resetting all settings to default; - re-installing thunderbird.

Nothing helps.

I use no add-ons except dictionaries (German French, Russian, Spanish).

I am using version 78.5.0, but the problem emerged before I upgraded to this version.

Thanks!

Yuri.

Hello. Please help. I reinstalled Firefox and got 1 error. Previously, when I pressed the print button for a PDF file on any site, the PDF Reader and Adobe Print Panel would open in Windows. Now, when clicking on this button, an error occurs. To fix this in Firefox preferences, I installed PDF Reader for pdf files. And now the files open in PDF Reader on my Windows, its good. But there was a problem, when I press the print button, the print dialog box from "Adobe Reader Print " should also open (picture 1), but instead the standard " Windows Print Dialog " one opens (picture 2). In this window I cannot set the print properties and make a preview. Please tell me how I can fix this . Maybee can I restore this from the old profile using some config file? in another browser, the desired window is launched(

When I add new account to Thunderbird, it creates Local Directory with server name at the end. Why is that? It is looking strange, when I use several addresses at the same server. I expected that there will be my e-mail address, identifying my account directory.

When addressing an email, I *much* prefer the previous alignment of To, Cc and Bcc all in one line with the ability to switch between them. Any way to get that back? I use cc quite often and I'm finding the new layout awkward and less flexible.

I have posted a screenshot of what I am seeing with the new TB 78. Thanks for your help.

Upgrade ?? changed my fonts

The last update of Thunderbird shrunk the text size in the classic view and folder panes. How can I get them back, of if need be, revert to the previous version.

Thunderbird has just started putting up this message each time I open Thunderbird and delete a message.

'The messages you have deleted can be purged from disk. This operation will save about 271 MB of disk space. Select the option below to let Thunderbird do this automatically without asking you.'

I don't want my deleted messages removed from the deleted folder as I often refer to them.

How can I get rid of this annoying pop up and take back control of my computer? Is the Microsoft nanny state creeping into Thunbderbird?

Anytime Firefox opens it is asking for my Primary password. This has been happening for 2 or 3 weeks. I can enter my password or click cancel. But if I close and reopen the browser it happens again, regarless of what page I am on. (Annoying when clicking a link to read a short article) I do not have AVG or ISlet (sp?) installed. I tried that solution and it did not work.

Suggestions on how to debug, diagnose or fix appreciated.

I use a 55 inch TV as my computer monitor with Windows7 OS. All of a sudden this week the animations are on every site... Netflix just became unbearable to watch. I have already gone though the steps to turn off all animations in Firefox. I performed these steps...

'''in about:config - type : toolkit.cosmeticAnimations.enabled - set it to : false - type : toolkit.scrollbox.smoothScroll - set it to : false'''

This did NOTHING to turn off the nauseating animations. Every time I scroll a web page I feel motion sickness. Every movie I watch now looks like garbage.

I ALSO have turned off ALL animations in Windows7... so this is really upsetting. Movies I have downloaded seem to play fine in VLC player, but if I use my browser to watch a video, it is now unbearable because of these garbage animations wreaking havoc on my screen.

Version: MAC 78.5.0 (64-bit)

My Mac system is on dark mode, and the background color of editor is also dark.

I want to change the background color of editor to white but find no way to do so.

I know there's Preference - Composition - HTML Style - Background Color. But it's usable only for HTML style emails. My email format is plaintext.

I hate the "This time, search with" in the URL bar. When I want to search, I use the Search bar for that. I don't need extra icons that I'm not going to use taking up space in the URL bar. I've seen it suggested that they can be removed in the Search options page. But when I've tried that, it also removes them from the Search bar.

Here's what I want: for the URL bar to only have space for a URL, no "This time, search with" nonsense, but the Search bar left completely intact, with all the search engines I use.

Is there any way to temporarily disable Firefox (and Thunderbird) update reminders? Mozilla seems to be updating its software so often that I'm getting too many reminders and it's interfering with my work flow. I understand the need to keep software up to date as often as possible but this has now got ridiculous, and I am on the verge of changing my default browser from Firefox to Safari, Chrome or Vivaldi. Please stop forcing every little tiny update onto your users!

Or is there some sneaky little way I haven't noticed under Preferences which already does enable me to do this?

I was using the iV Cam software before having bought a new web cam for laptop. Seems I accidentally selected the iVCam to be the primary camera option and switched on the tab box of " never ask again". Now I want to use my Web cam. Please help me to how to use the Web cam instead of iVCam software.

I have already uninstalled iVCam software. But still cant find the option for my Webcam, instead the site directly connects to the iVCam still.

Please help. Thanks.

Why does Mozilla list this on their website if it is outdated?? It's like doing a search on Google in 2020 and getting results from 2014 version of Firefox. it is completely irrelevant. I didn't think Mozilla was as bad as Google.
