If I right-click on any photo or item in the explorer and choose "share", the mailadresses that show up as options in the "share window" is not associated with Thunderbird, but with Outlook. I have tried every solution I have found on the net, incl. making sure TB was chosen as the mail client for any file type, removing any leftovers from outlook and from registration data base, but still only adresses connected with Outlook shows up (and I can see that it is from an old mailing list, that does not include more recent contacts). So why does the share windows not have assess to Thunderbird and its mail adresses?

Unwanted Settings Re-enabled in FF v127.0.0

Multiple users are reporting in Microfix's Mozilla Firefox and ESR Updates 2024 in the AskWoody forum that the two options at Settings | Browsing | Recommend extensions as you browse and Recommend features as you browse were both automatically re-enabled when Firefox updated to v127.0.0. I was able to confirm both those settings were previously disabled in my Firefox browser and re-enabled without my permission in v127.0.0.

So far this as been confirmed in desktop builds of Firefox v127.0.0 and Firefox ESR v115.0.2 released on 11-Jun-2024, but not in Portable builds of Firefox. I'm hoping that the automatic re-enabling of these settings is a bug, and not a deliberate change to make Firefox more intrusive.

I should add that the first time I re-launched Firefox after upgrading to v127.0.0 on 11-Jun-2024 I saw a banner message asking me if I'd like to Open Firefox every time you start your computer?. I'm hoping that clicking the "Not Now" button button once will be enough to prevent this nag from reappearing.


Dell Inspiron 15 5584 * 64-bit Win 10 Pro v22H2 build 19045.4412 * Firefox v127.0.0 * Microsoft Defender v4.18.24050.7-1.1.24050.5 * Malwarebytes Premium v5.1.5.116-1.0.1252 * Macrium Reflect Free v8.0.7783

I frequently stumble upon websites with incredibly annoying looping images, with no option or method to disable the image changes. Reading information on websites with constantly changing images is difficult due the distraction.

It would be greatly appreciated if an option could be created to disable the continual image looping - perhaps an addition to the FF settings whereby an On/Off toggle could en/disable a context menu option to Pause / Disable image looping when the user right-clicks on an image. ... or, the browser itself automatically recognises image looping and the toggle simply allows FF to en/disable the looping.

Thanks.

My default search engine is Duck Duck Go. I frequently use a VPN.

I am usually in North America and want to search sites in North America. When I run a search by typing a search term in Firefox, I get results beginning in UK, and I see that a blue toggle switch has been set to UK. (See image.)

This started 2-3 weeks ago.

How do I set things so that my searches begin in North America?

I have checked "about:config" preferences and do not see anywhere that UK is specified. I don't see a region preference setting, either.

Thank you.

System: Windows 10 22H2 Version: 129.0a1

Firefox system is permanently set to Dark mode, even when the rest of the OS is light mode. While I can manually select light themes (such as the default Light theme), other dual-mode themes such as Alpenglow is permanent stuck in dark. Is there a way to investigate this?

Before Firefox used to keep private tabs 'open and available' till you closed the page out, for iphones, ipads, etc. Now all my private tabs are closing out every time I close the app. Before there used to be a section in settings that would allow you to turn this feature on/off, however it's not in settings anymore.

Is there anyway to fix and change this?

Yesterday, midday, my sent file stopped storing new messages after years of flawless service

I have tried: - closing TB and shutting down laptop and restarting

                      Under  Account Settings> Copies and Folders: unclicking "place a copy in" doing a test and then reclicking "place a copy in"  (directed to sent folder)

FWIW: 1.only thing I have done differently lately is create a Template

           2. Sent folder works fine on my on-line email ( I normally work with storing locally on my MacBook Air) but on-line email is not TB so likely irrelevant

I would like to customize styling for recurring events in Calendar (115.11.1 on MacOS) without using extensions/add-ons. I enabled userChrome.css (`toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets`) and the “has:” selector (`layout.css.has-selector.enabled`). In my userChrome.css, I added styles:

   li:has([alt*="Recurring"]) { background-color:grey !important; padding:1rem !important; }
   li:has(*[alt*="Recurring"]) { background-color:yellow !important; padding:1rem !important; }

Unfortunately, this seems to have no effect upon restarting Thunderbird. However, when I open Developer Toolbox (`Tools > Developer Toolbox > Developer Toolbox > Inspector` tab) suddenly everything works and the stylesheets are applied, but only until Thunderbird is shut down. Weirdly, other custom styles in userChrome.css work ok.

Is this intended behavior or a bug?

Hello,

I work in a company and we are using Thunderbird for emails. The way me and my coworkers work is that we solving emails we get. BUT. There are two people always here on emails. One of them is taking ODD emails, the second one EVEN. For example I'm the ODD one, so every email that comes in odd time for example 8:31, 8:43, 8:47 etc., are mine and the other person who is EVEN one have emails like 8:30, 8:40, 8:52 etc. So if I make 2 folders one will be called EVEN and the other one ODD is there some way to filter these emails by time?

Thanks for your help and answers
