Several attributes disappeared with latest updates introducing supernova. I've found the CSS code #toolbar-menubar{order:-1 !important;} added to userChrome.css works to move the Menu bar to the top. I've tried several examples of CSS code to set tree rows eg Inbox to display alternate rows background white/grey, however, none seem to work. Any suggestions? Thank-you.

So, I upgraded to SuperNova and my spell checker no longer works. I removed and re-installed the dictionary extension, someplace I think it shows as installed and active. BUT it does not show my spelling mistakes as I compose an email, and when I go to send the spellchecker popup comes up with blanks. Any thoughts on what/how I can fix this. I "really" need a spellchecker.

Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 98.0.1. And there doesn't seem to be an option to add Pocket suggestions to the homepage, as there used to be.

You can add Pocket articles that you've saved, but not suggestions from Pocket.

It used to be under settings - home - recommended by Pocket.

Has this been removed from the options?

Thanks, Taylor

Hello, I have been using Firefox as my main browser for more than a decade. One could say i am some Mozilla fanboy, having convinced many of my friends and relatives to use Firefox instead of any chrome based options (Which there are to many these days). It struck me today, as i was reworking some workflow elements in many programs i use daily, that it is impossible to change any key binding in Firefox anymore. I know it has been a while now, and i searched all over the web for an answer or a solution, but at this point it is clear that other than going in the code and recompiling Firefox manually, it is not possible. I stumbled upon the (only) extension that allows to change some shortcuts, but the two that i wanted to change are impossible to configure from it, being disabling only f12 as i would use it for other things but i do not want to lose the dev console and also ctrl+L to open the address bar, it is quite inconvenient and would much prefer to use ctrl+spacebar as it matches many other bindings i am using with other software. There have been many other features that were changed in the recent years that made me start to look for an alternative, as i see features melting away almost as quickly as the user base of the product.

I do understand that one person's problem is not going to change the way a big piece of software is working, but i am wondering, why are the users losing such features as basic as customizing key bindings in a piece of software that used to be so incredibly customizable in the past? Why is the only viable option to anything chrome based losing it's edge over the competition? Is Firefox v150 be based on the chromium engine or will it die before?

Thank you in advance, and no, i don't need the link to the shortcut page, i already have it.

Currently on TB 115.3.1 but this problem existed on 102 and earlier. My email is all Pop (and not Imap).

I made filters to put some emails into the Local Junk folder and that works fine. The only emails in the Local Junk folder are those resulting from the actions of my filters. I've checked and the junk folder is the "Junk- Local folders" and not some other junk folder that I might have created.

The Local Junk folder setting (as well as individual mail account junk settings) is to automatically delete emails after 21 days. But nothing ever gets deleted and I have to delete manually.

Is there some master setting that I've missed somewhere?

I like to have a dark theme (I do not wish to be dazzled by lots of bright white backgrounds).

But if I do that then the reader window is white on black, which I do no like. I prefer almost-black on light-grey. I can set this up. However, what I cannot do is set this in my Composition window without forcing those same colours onto all recipients, as the <body> tag ends up with my text="" and bgcolor="" tags on it.

If I set "Use reader's default colours" then I end up with the default colours from the reader (white on black) not what I have set (although this does remove the text and bgcolor tags).

So the problem I have is can either set the default colours in my Composition windows to what I am comfortable with or I can set them such that recipients can view them as they wish. But I cannot do both.

Is it possible to set the text and background colours form with a Theme? (Indeed, where is the documentation which describes what is settable within a Theme?).

Hello,

the newest update to version 97.0 was run automatically. Afterwards the new print preview appears although I have it disabeled in about:config (print.tab_modal.enabled --> false). I cannot get rid of it. It is very annoying as I cannot print my labels with that menu and always have to click once more to do so. Does anyone has a fix for this?

Thanks in advance,

Thomas

Greetings, I've checked a few articles in Firefox to help with my question, but none of them are helping. (Here's the main article: http://example.com.) Here's the situation. Say I go to a website's Contact page and click the button to contact someone, a window appears and asks me what app I want to use to open the email. Gmail is my default email, and Firefox is my default browser, and I use Windows 10. When I open the window of options (see attached screenshot) to open the email, and I then click "Choose Other Application" (other than Firefox), I don't see the Gmail app anywhere. I then followed the directions in that link above to check my Windows settings, per its suggestion, which I did ... but in those settings, too, I got to a point where the directions no longer matched what I'm seeing on my screen. I didn't see the Gmail app anywhere. Could you let me know in simple layperson's terms how to open Gmail links in Firefox? I don't have a PhD in computer science, so please keep it very simple. Thanks in advance! Best wishes, Bill

I've searched for answers. I tried the About:config and changing some settings to false and others to true as suggested (e.g. browser.search.context.loadInBackground), etc., and of course I have the option chosen under settings.

This is a new computer. My old computer would switch to the new tab when I right click it, but this new one won't.

Any latest fixes?

I'm using the 64-bit version of thunderbird and I'm unable to increase the font size of the incoming messages in my inbox. I went to settings, general, Language and Appearance and under advanced changed fonts to 24, 20 and 20 while checking off the font control boxes. None of these changes the size of the text in the body of the text. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi folks, I had a problem with this back in June 2021 when my previously black background to the menu bar (bookmarks etc) changed to a washed out grey. Chris Ilias and dbben both replied, and Chris sent me a video guide on how to install Photon Colours, which fixed the problem, thanks. However, today the same problem has re-occurred - ie grey background. Unfortunately, when I checked in the Themes menu I found that Photon Colours is no longer there. Grateful if you could tell me if there is a new fix for this so that I can re-instigate the black background to the toolbar. Many thanks Chris

Today, my daughter received a notification that the Dragon Professional Web Extension has been disabled (see attached image). This was done because the extension supposedly executes remote code and collects user data.

My daughter, a mathematics professor, has very limited use of her hands. She is dependent upon Dragon to do her job. This is not something she just likes - she has a disability and she NEEDS it. Disabling this extension will make her job significantly more difficult, and there are capabilities that the extension provides that she may not be able to duplicate with workarounds.

PLEASE, make the extension useable again. This is an accessibility issue for disabled people - it's not just a fun addition to the browser. If necessary, add some sort of acknowledgement checkbox so that she can acknowledge that she is taking some risks in using it.

One other thing. Disabling this extension with no advance warning was a disservice to all disabled people who depend on it. Had this occurred in the middle of a semester, the effect could have been catastrophic. As it is, she may need to spend the rest of the summer trying to figure out how to do her job without it. You have really, really done an extreme disservice here.
