Hi,

For as long as I can remember I've been able to ctrl + click in the "text area" beneath the link in DuckDuckGo search results and Firefox would open a new tab and switch to that tab automatically; but if clicking on the link itself Firefox would open the link in a new tab in the background. This was a priceless feature until today with the 123.0 update. Now ctrl + left click in the text area opens a new tab in the background but does not switch to it. I've been able to confirm this is only effecting v123 on all both linux and windows.

Hoping somebody here might be able to suggest to development returning this feature back to Firefox or help me figure out a way to set this option manually myself.

Thanks!

Dear Mozilla Support, [please forgive my poor English - FRENCH is my mother tongue]

CONTEXT - I use a Linux (Peppermint) Live DVD to surf the Web, always on the same laptop. I do NOT use any hard disk inside that laptop, just the Live DVD spinned by a DVD player. Only the RAM stores data => fresh new distro for every session - years ago, I created a Firefox account, and the Sync worked perfectly, and allowed me to back up my Bookmarks AND my Opened Tabs (they are stored in Mozzila's cloud, and after each sign in and a sync, they reappear in the left panel). Regarding the Synced Tabs, the left panel used to store all the previous Live DVD sessions (generally with the device's name: peppermint's Linux... (IIRC). - i do NOT use several devices, and do NOT wish to sync date acreoss them. I use Sync to get my Bookmarks and Opened Tabs synced across successive Firefox sessions, day after day. I worked perfectly well.

PROBLEM Since a few weeks, I noted that despite login and sync, on the left panel - Synced Tabs are now empty: no tabs synced at all => so I cannot seamlessly find back my opened tabs from one session to another (if I switch off my laptop, then later restart a new Live DVD session) - see screenshot = https://imgur.com/LO6jWLYl.png - Bookmarks are nevertheless still perfectly synced (see screenshot = https://i.imgur.com/Td0nbY2.png)


Many thanks for you help. Kind regards from Europe.

During a client Audit earlier this week we were dinged on not having the option in Firefox ESR to block manually saving Addresses and Credit Cards. We have the autofill disabled however users can still manually add credit cards and addresses and this poses an issue with our call center agents handling Credit Card info. I'd like to be able to gray out the Saved Addresses and Saved Credit Card boxes so as to prevent agents from manually entering card data into it using a GPO or Registry setting that we can push and apply to all our domain PCs. Ideally, if we could add an entry to the JSON preferences in the Mozilla GPO that would gray those options out that'd be best but any option that removes the users ability to add CC info would be acceptable.

Several emails in my Earthlink Webmail inbox online received between 6:03 am and 9:21 am PST 2/21/2022 did not download to Thunderbird when I clicked on "Get Messages." They came from 2 different sources from which I have received and downloaded email many times before with no difficulty. Since then I have received and downloaded emails from these same sources, so there appears to be no ongoing problem. Earthlink tech support said there was nothing wrong on their end and my version of Thunderbird is current. This has never happened before in many years of both Earthlink service and using Thunderbird. ??? (No jargon, please, as my tech knowledge is seat of my pants.)

Change in behavior with Thunderbird on Windows 10 - Dragging file icon to TB app icon on Desktop no longer creates a new message with the file attached

Trying to help a client.

He's in his late 80s and has motor function issues due to illness.

It seems that a recent update has changed the behavior of TB for the worse for him.

He's accustomed to dragging a file (PDF File mainly) to the TB app icon on his desktop. Up until recently, this would launch TB and open a new message with the file attached. Now, it only opens TB?

His motor function problems makes using the W10 "Send to" dialogue impossible really, can't get the cursor to the submenu to select "Mail Recipient" .. That's why I set him up with the above method in the first place.

Launching TB then creating a new message, and adding the attachment manually works, but is also more cumbersome than the method he'd been able to use for years now.

Has anyone else sen this change in behavior? I was going to roll back to the previous update, but it looked as if the latest update before today was long before the change in behavior was observed?

It'd be great if the next update fixed this, and he could get back to something that's comfortable and works for him.

Hi, my bookmarks toolbar doesn’t show when I launch Firefox. They always use to. When I click on View>Toolbar>Bookmarks Toolbar>Always Show - the Bar shows. When I click on any bookmark the bar disappears. If (in new window) I click on View>Toolbar>Bookmarks Toolbar>Always Show - the bar appears, when I then open new tab it does not show on new tab and when I click back to previous tab bookmarks are gone.

I have restarted W10 PC, no change.

Hope you can help, many thanks, David

I used to be able to highlight messages on the list of messages by moving up and down arrows and all it took was 1 click of each arrow.

Now it's different, I can only use up and down arrows if message is already highlighted and in order to highlight I have to click on it with mouse.

Is there a way to return the way it was before?

A week or so ago I patched Thunderbird (115.8.0 (64-bit)). Everything seemed fine and I proceeded to empty the TRASH. It took an unusually long time to delete the roughly 175 messages in the TRASH. Then the screen "blinked" and when Thunderbird reappeared the SENT fold, while present, showed that it contained NO emails. I have sent about 50 emails since this occurred and the counter on the SENT folder continues to show the the folder contains no emails.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get things to work again?

Thunderbird ver115.8.0, Win11, 64bit Ten or so email accounts running on TB with a mix of pop3 and imap. When starting TB, it usually hangs and the only way out is to close using the X in top right. This is followed by the application wanting to report the problem to Windoze etc. Once I have canned out of this and restarted TB, everything goes well. I have default theme, no extensions or add-ons running. Cache is set to clear on shutdown. I recently deleted all .msf files. The status bar always shows one particular imap account during the hang (hang will continue until TB restarted) - that account is the first account listed in the mailbox tree in LH panel.
