Recently, in recovering from a lightning hit, I somehow managed to create a phantom Sent folder under one of my e-mail accounts (I normally keep sent e-mails in a Sent folder under Local Folders). Everything continues to work all right - sent e-mails wind up in Local Folders/Sent, so the Sent folder under the account is only a cosmetic irritant, but if it is easy to get rid of I'd sure like to know how.

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

Firefox has suddenly stopped sizing shipping labels when downloading them from Amazon and ebay. They print way too large. Changing the printer setting, size, etc does not help. It seems as though Firefox is converting them somehow. I have tried clearing the printer settings in Firefox also.

Hi there

On some sites I use, their aps are next to useless as are their mobile sites. I want to be able to access the REAL websites but when I change the URL (e.g. change m.twitch.tv to just twitch.tv) it simply redirects to the mobile site again. How can I force it to show me the full web page instead please ?

Many thanks

Archive/Delete integration with Gmail via IMAP

I want to be able to use the archive and delete functions in Thunderbird for a Gmail account that will have the following results:

I want to be able to archive email in TB with the following results: (a) the email is moved to an archive folder in TB (b) the email is de-labelled in Gmail, i.e. it ends up in All Mail only.

I want a Delete in TB to delete the email on TB and send to the Bin on Gmail.

I don't want to have to sync the "All Mail" label from Gmail to TB.

Currently, I have a set up as follows: I have archive switched off on TB. I have Delete set to mark as deleted and I have auto-expunge on in Gmail. This way "deleting" an email from the inbox in TB actually archives it in Gmail. I then have a separate account in TB set to download all emails from gmail by POP3 which serves as the TB archive. To delete emails: I have created a folder in TB called "to delete" and I move any emails I want to delete to that. Then from time to time I log into Gmail and bin everything in that folder.

My workaround achieves everything except that the local archive still contains everything that I have actually deleted.

I have tried to change this. I turned on Archive in TB and set it to keep an archive of the email in Local Folders. I left Delete as is and in Gmail I turned off auto-expunge and set it to Bin emails on expunge. The plan will then be to discontinue the POP3 download. BUT I have found that if I archive or delete an email in TB the email is struck through to show it is marked as deleted, but even if I move out of the inbox and back in or force a send/receive or I close TB completely and log back in the emails are still sitting there. And in neither case does the email leave the Inbox in Gmail. I do wonder if the fact that I have Gmail on my phone is causing a problem because the emails are showing there too and therefore the "expunged from the last visible IMAP folder" means that Gmail is not yet acting on the deletion.

Any advice welcome.

Hi I have read many articles about Gmail accounts under Thunderbird and kind of understand how they use a single file, with labels, instead of the standard folders used by many email services. I do not want to see the Gmail section on my TB display. I had read that just 'unsubscribe' the section showing 'Gmail' and all its contents. I put my pointer on the account and look for 'unsubscribe' but it shows only 'subscribe' as a choice.

Why is Gmail section showing up? Why do I not see 'unsubscribe'? I am using TB 91.9.0 (64-bit). I have several accounts for which this is true. I use a Linux distribution (Fedora 34) which is EOL but upgrading should not be an issue for this generic issue. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated ... Robert

I have uninstalled, removed my profiles no change. I installed the add on and still no change. What else can I do please other than change my email client which I am loathe to do having been a faithful happy user for more years than I care to remember.

Hello, when I click on link with middle mouse button it will open that link on next tab but doesn't "jump" there, which is fine. But when I do the same with pdf links, it will automaticly "jumps" on the pfd file. And I don't want to. I want to open it like normal link (on next tab in background), because I have a lot of pdf files to open, and this makes it difficult to do it qucikly. Before some weeks this wasn't a probem, it started now.

Hi I would appreciate some help.

I need horizontal lines between messages in the latest version of TB 102.

I've seen some stuff about adding a css file to a new chrome directory in my profile and changing a setting somewhere.

Can someone please tell me if this will still work in the latest version? I don't want to break something, being a bit of a novice.

Thanks

I woke up this morning and my tab bar on Firefox was out of control. I figured out how to shrink the tabs in about:config. However, there is a huge space at the end of the tabs that is completely unnecessary. I've been googling all morning. I tried to find compact mode--but "density" is gone, even when I go back into about:config and enable it. The only other help I found was to change the CSS code and unfortunately, that is outside my wheelhouse.

Is there ANY way I can get my old tab bar back so that the tabs fill the top of the screen as opposed to having a huge empty space at the end?
