I just downloaded and installed Thunderbird on a new computer. This latest version I just downloaded is 91.1.1 It no longer seems to provide any way to enable headers Unread and Total over the account folders pane. So there are no columns that show numbers for each folder's Unread and Total email counts. I can't see the email counts at a glance.

I can't find a way to enable those columns. I must be overlooking something.

How can I enable those headers+columns?


separately In desperation I enabled those headers (Unread and Total) over the email pane of one account's inbox. Then shifted them over to the left for better visibility. But no actual number appears beneath them in those two columns. I can't imagine what sense it makes to have those headers+columns in the email view pane anyway. Just out of idle curiosity, what use is there in the email pane to have Unread and Total headers+columns?

Good Afternoon

Im currently configuring OKTA for SSO, part of this setup is to configure a FireFox option, for people that use this particular browser.

These are the instructions provided by OKTA:- Open the Firefox web browser, enter about:config in the Address bar. If the Proceed with Caution message appears, click Accept the Risk and Continue. In the Search preference name field, enter network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris. Click Edit, enter <org>.kerberos.okta.com, and click Save.

This works fine when i manually edit the config for myself to test, but i need to deploy this across our org, i downloaded the Mozilla GPOS but i cannot find anywhere i can set this particular setting.

Is it possible to set this particular setting in the GPOs? so i can deploy across our org.


Thanks.

This new version, 91.0, now opens PDF files in a new Thunderbird tab. In previous versions, I could open PDF files in Acrobat Reader DC.

I want to still use Acrobat Reader DC to open PDF files. I can't find anything in preferences to direct PDF files to Acrobat Reader DC. When I right-click "open" on a PDF file, it does not give me the option to choose a program to open it with. It opens directly into a new Thunderbird tab.

So I've got Proton UI forced on me today in 92.0 update and accordingly had to spend my entire evening trying to repair all of the damage. So far I've managed to fix menu spacing and the way tabs look all while not breaking previous walls of text in userChrome.css meant to fix even older UI problems. Still one thing I failed to find any solutions to is the bookmark drop-down menus color issue. Those menus used to be gray, but now they are all bright white, which to me is super annoying. Any tips on how to fully recolor those?

Every solution which I have found for Firefox 89 "Proton" so far which moves the Tabs Bar below the Navigation Bar (AKA "address bar"), with the Menu Bar above it, does NOT move the Tabs Bar below the Bookmarks Bar. The Bookmarks Bar appears to be overwritten and blank, and occupies space below the Menu Bar, Navigation Bar, and Tabs Bar. This empty space separates the three bars which are implemented and the content of the currently-selected tab below it.

Currently, my userChrome.css file is a copy posted by Corel-10 (?): __________________________________________________________________________________________________

Evidently, the text editor for this website does several things to the above original text that, frankly, seem unnecessary and undesirable. The .CSS file is just an unformatted text file, so what is the problem with simply copying its contents and pasting it in to the body of this post?

Which is also to say that I do NOT have a clue as to what any line in the file is meant to do, what effect it has, why it is even in the file at all, or why it is written in the way that it is. So DO NOT tell me that I "CAN" create a Cascading Style Sheet on my own when I cannot even modify one that has been provided. 

On the face of it, something is missing from the above CSS text. What change needs to be made to the above content so that the Bookmark Bar will appear between the Navigation Bar and the Tabs Bar??

Thank-you very much for your time and attention to this request for assistance.

One reason why I liked Firefox so much were two tools in particular that have been inexplicably REMOVED by recent updates, View This Image (or Picture) and View Page Info. Now Firefox is just like everybody else and their brothers. I was wondering if there is an add-on or extension that addresses this deficiency.

I just noticed: Firefox no longer shows installed add-ons and extensions. WTF???

Filters don't always work on new messages in the Inbox.

Most of my filters are set to look for specific "From" entries then move them to the appropriate folders for each message. When email is downloaded from the server some filters work, but some hang up and require me to click on the displayed message to acknowledge that message. Once all the acknowledgements have been done, and while I am still in the Inbox, I then click on "Tools/Run Filters on Folder" and ALL of the messages that did not originally get moved to the correct folders per the filters set for them, now work beautifully!

Why won't some filters work when first run on Inbox, but they work later, and how can I avoid the laborious manual response requirement for those that don't work the first time? I should add that there is no consistency to which filters run, or do not run. Even when I go to the folder for a message that did not get moved to that folder, and "fix" that folder, some future messages still don't get moved the first time through running filters when those messages arrive in the Inbox.

I am not able to disable SpamAssassinYes filter. If I remove it then when I close and open TB the SpamAssassinYes filter is still there. If I disable it then when I close and open TB the SpamAssassinYes filter is still there. If I move down then when I close and open TB the SpamAssassinYes filter is still there.

I'd like to disable it since keeps to move messages in spam folder even if those messages are not spam and even if I keep mark them as "not spam".

I think this is a bug, since I am not able to remove SpamAssassinYes filter I would like to teach it that a message is NOT SPAM.

I don't know whether if's Thunderbird itself, or my theme, but the actual incoming email has a hanging header that takes up too much of my screen so that I can only see a couple of lines of text, while keeping the header stationary. I have aging vision and set my text to a large size - so it really impacts my ability to read the message fluently. I have neither dementia or Alzheimer's, so I have no need to have the header constantly in my face while obscuring all but two lines of the message at a time.

I spent some time looking at themes and found that very few of them show a sample message screen. And the ones that do, do not indicate whether the header is stationary (rolls up as the text gets scrolled in) or fixed (a hanging header).

I'm attaching a screenshot I took of an email.  I have obscured email addresses and put a small grey line at the bottom of the header, so you will be able to see how much of the screen is taken by a header that won't roll away.
