In as I am lacking technological experience to properly address the problem of, "the significance of pins tacked onto shortcut icons on Firefox opening page"; I will confront the situation with a simple picture. ⇘ I suppose I will never know: Two days ago this inquiry was attempted. However all was curtailed upon the realization several minutes passed during the process of uploading the image. Be it known, today, twenty minutes have passed in attempt to upload 238KB png file. Apparently security is prohibiting this. In any event, perchance some of this does get through... HELP

Hi! I was digging through the changelogs as I noticed that Google and Firefox settings were now in dark mode. I discovered a new feature that had it sync with the system dark-mode. Is there a way to turn this off (through settings or about:config)? Not a huge fan of dark-mode Google, but light-mode Windows is terrifying lol.

Thanks in advance for your help--not a huge deal, just something I was interested in knowing. Have a fantastic day!

First: Firefox works for me without any problems when using it. Now to my problem and my question: Recently I looked through my event log and noticed that in the application log two app crashes of Firefox are logged again and again (mostly every 3 to 4 hours, sometimes even shorter). My problem now is that these logs also come from times where Firefox is not running. I am not primarily concerned with what is causing this, Firefox is working fine as written, but why Firefox is running there. Is this an automatic update search? My update settings are as follows: "Check for updates, but ask before installing", "Use a background service to install updates" is disabled. Also, it shows an incorrect version "95.0.2.8022" even though I already have "96.0.1" installed. I hope someone can answer my question and thanks in advance.

In addition the first eventlog message of those two: Fehlerbucket , Typ 0 Ereignisname: APPCRASH Antwort: Nicht verfügbar CAB-Datei-ID: 0

I am desperately trying to provide Thunderbird with a certain set of extensions pre-installed for all users (for example language packs). This technique works in Firefox acceptably well: it is sufficient to store the xpi files named after the extension_ID in the %programfolder%\distribution\extensions folder Whatever I am trying in Thunderbird, no add-on ever load, and I cannot find any recent documentation online. If I place the xpi files in the <profilefolder>\extensions this works perfectly. How do I provide them to all users at once??

Hi,

Is there any way to disable the pop-up switch notification which reads "New tab opened Switch"?

I'm talking about the momentary button on the bottom.onnthe screen which provides a way to immediately switch over to the newly opened tab (the colored one).

For clarification, I want to disable ONLY the momentary notification itself, not the ability to open links in new tabs. I've installed a custom add-on which opens new tabs automatically, so the notification is now redundant (and annoying).

Thanks!

Yesterday, Earthlink suspended my email account because it was being used for spam. They had me change my password and now I am able to receive email on Thunderbird but I am not able to send. When I send, they show in my "Sent" folder, but they do not go to the person I am sending them to. I have walked through all the methods listed for fixing this, but am still not able to send. I am able to send from Earthlink web mail, but not from Thunderbird. Something seems to be blocking me. I can't seem to upload the image of the information you need so I'll type it in:

Outgoing Server (SMTP) Settings: Earthlink - smtpauth.earthlink.net Server Name: smtpauth.earthlink.net Port: 587 Password transmitted insecurely Connection Security: None

Provider is Earthlink ISP is Frontier Firewall is by Windows 7 Bitdefender CCleaner Malwarebytes Windows 7 Thunderbird 91.5.0 (32 bit)

I have used Thunderbird for several years and have had no problems until now.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

I really don't care for it and have tried looking into my settings but I see nothing that I can do to go back to the normal white. I am using Windows 11 on an HP All In One Desktop computer. Is there anything I can do to revert back to the way it was? Thanks for any reply.

For a while Thunderbird has been a 'pain' although it never happens on a quick 'test' it seems to do it on the majority of my email sends.

When I send an email from my private peter@***lyn.co.uk account the person will receive it via my Google email acct peter****@gmail.com then of course they will answer the email via Google which is a nuisance as that account is for 'incidentals' and not PRIVATE matters.

It may be said its because my mail is on the same Thunderbird page but it always has been since I changed from WLM to TB years ago so this problem is pretty new.

Thanks for reading and if you can suggest you're the best THANKS

I hate surprises like these! So far i trusted FF that after an update my layout would still be intact as was, but no they forced this black sh.. onto me as a background for the home page - and no alternative anywhere to switch this back to white or any other options. Do i want to install a plugin for this simple basic option - hell no, i'd rather get rid of FF as my default browser if you think you can play dictators too now. What i miserable attitude you people have. If you change for life )white) to dead (black) you might as well declare you are on your way out as a browser - or offer the option to change that bg color real quick

I have a custom theme on Firefox called Charlies Red. Up until two days ago, Firefox would always consider it to be in light mode (which I prefer) whenever I'd use it. Now, however, it's in dark mode, and the only way I can return to light mode is to give up my custom theme and instead choose Light as a theme, which I don't like as much as Charlies Red.

Is there a way to force light mode on regardless of which theme I use? One source said I could go to about:config and create a ui.systemUsesDarkTheme number, setting it to 0, but I tried it to no avail and so deleted the number.
