Hi

Got an earlier version of Thunderbird at home (and sorted fine) but I'm trying to sort the view for folders and sub-folders to be all the same on my work PC i.e Sort By: Date, descending & unthreaded.

Apart from going through every folder/sub-folder, is there a quick way to set this in version 115.10.1 ?

Looked at online help/videos but they refer to older versions.

Hi,

I do like how I can change the toolbar buttons that Thunderbird shows when I open Thunderbird. That is, I other mouse button click on the toolbar and select "Customize." I have a panoply of buttons to choose from, to arrange as I wish on the toolbar.

But, when I am reading an email, the buttons I see on the top left of the email window are: "Reply, Forward, Archive, Junk, Delete, More" (in Settings, I have "'Open messages' set to 'in a new message window'."

I have not been able to find a similar "Customize" ability for the toolbar of the message window.

Is there such an ability?

The reason I ask... I'd like to have similar control over that toolbar to that I have on the other Thunderbird toolbars. But I cannot find the appropriate Customize option.

What am I missing?

thx.

I've recently upgraded Thunderbird to 78.14.0 and Nostalgy to 3.4.2. Nostalgy is an essential add-on for me, but it's not working the same as in earlier versions, and I hope someone can help with these problems. Or should I ask Alain Frisch, the author of the add-on? 1. Using S to move (or C to copy) an email to a selected folder works when the email is closed (but highlighted in the Inbox or wherever) but no longer works when the email is open. Earlier versions worked when the email is open, and it's a huge drawback for me that it doesn't work that way now. Am I missing something? 2. The command G (go to the specified folder) does not appear at all when invoked from within an email. When the email is closed G provides the expected list of folders, but focus does NOT move to the selected folder. Again, am I missing something?

Grateful for any help.

I was able to change the color of the context menu (the menu you get when you either right click or click on a dropdown) and the color of the highlight/selection as shown in the attached screenshot.

The default color looks like it's black, and I'd like to change it to match the rest of my Arc-Dark gtk theme. Does anyone know the name of the CSS tag that controls the context menu border?

Here's what I have so far:

/* Context Menu */ menupopup > menu, menupopup > menuitem,popup > menu, popup > menuitem {background-color: #404552 !important;}

menuitem:hover, .menu-iconic:hover, .menuitem-iconic:hover {

border-radius: 0px !important;
background-color: #5294E2 !important;

}

Windows 11; Thunderbird 115.10.1

I prefer to see only new messages in my Inbox. To that end, I've chosen the icon that says "Show only unread messages;" but it will not stay chosen. Every time I leave TB and come back I have to chose the icon again or see all the messages I've seen and reacted to before.

Is there a way to make the choice to see only unread messages and have it stay in use?

Firefox browser, v123.0.1, 64-bit. windows 10 Pro, 22H2.

Hello, this may not be a problem with Firefox itself at all, but I'd like to try to understand what the cause of the problem I and others are having.

I have Norton 360 installed, in this Windows 10 computer and like to use Firefox for internet browsing, it has always served me well.

I also have Norton Safe Search integrated/add-on to Firefox. This puts a red, green, or gray check mark at the end of each link that comes up during a search and has always worked before.

Recently, I've noticed that such check marks do not appear at all when doing a search with Firefox, but they are present when I do searches with MS Edge.

I am searching for a solution here, and also in the Norton Community. There are others there who have stated they are having the same problem.

Has anyone here heard of this before, would you have any suggestion as to what may be causing the lack of the Norton Safe Search check marks in Firefox searches?

Any input/suggestions would be welcome.

I need the option to convert message date to local time on forwarding, instead of UTC + - from the original header.

This is the expected behavior in every other client I have used.

Even if the original sender is in the same city as me, chances are their originating server could be somewhere else and their originating time preference may not be set correctly. So it's more useful and logical to end user to show that in my local time zone.

Please, at least make it a user preference option.

I am not the only one:

When trying to install any extensions on either the Mozilla Addons website or directly via the Extension settings, it fails to do so.

I've attached a screenshot of the Mozilla Addons website when it fails to install the extension. On some other addons that I've attempted in the past, it just shows the throbber forever.

I have checked the Multiprocess Browser Console and it says that it fails to move the file because it's locked (NS_ERROR_FILE_IS_LOCKED). I have also attached a screenshot of that.

I'm using the OneTab add-on, Enabled. The icon no longer shows on the Toolbar, though it is on the Menu bar next to Firefox View.

I ran Remove and then Added it again, hoping the Toolbar Icon would reappear = no go, And I lost all URLs already saved, stupid me. To be clear, clicking the Icon on the Toolbar saves all open tabs.

Is there a fix via Preferences? Thanks. gw

I use Thunderbird as a central repository for 5 different email addresses. Recently 1 of them stopped getting Sent messages that were created on Webmail or my Phone. I used to work fine, now it doesn't. This account is the only one I have that is set to POP3; the others are IMAP.

I'd change the settings to be IMAP but don'e see how to do that. And, I don't want to lose any messages and would like to capture the ones that have not been captured.

Any thoughts?

Hey there Team!

So I flipped my table because of the new Outlook update and I'm beyond frustrated.

Not only it does not show the unread email count but also stopped working for my work email, making me miss a serious meeting!

This is ridiculous!

So now I'm transitioning to Thunderbird however, my Inbox is showing the total amount of emails. This is not what I need. What I need is the unread amount of emails.

On top of this, if I minimize the email, the Inbox amount count merges with the amount count of Sent Items. This is not what I need either... What I need is to solely have the amount of unread emails.

How can I achieve solely unread email count with Thunderbird?

Please keep me posted as I'm losing my last screw over setting up something as basic as this. -Val

Hi

I have used local Thunderbird folders for my Gmail accounts for a long time, and have now started using Protonmail (via Proton Bridge to Thunderbird) as well. Sending and receiving Protonmail via TB works fine.

I want to keep my single local inbox, sent folders etc. I set up a filter on the TB Protonmail account to copy all incoming emails to the local inbox. Works fine. I have also configured TB's Protonmail account to copy any emails created in TB's Protonmail account to the local 'sent' folder. All good.

I now want to get any emails sent via the Protonmail app to be copied to my local 'TB sent' folder - but have failed to get this to work.

If I create a TB filter to run on the Protonmail IMAP 'sent' folder, it CHANGES the separate TB inbox filter from running on the IMAP inbox, to run on the IMAP 'sent' folder!!!

I want to have two separate filters for Protonmail IMAP - one for 'inbox' and one for 'sent' - but they keep resetting so that both run either on the IMAP inbox or 'sent'. I thought filters were separate entities, but clearly not.

Am I missing something, or have I stumbled across a bug?

Thanks in anticipation.

Hello everyone,

Why some Wikipedia pages cannot activate reading mode under Debian 12 and Firefox ESR 115.9.1, for example this English Wikipedia page on Emmabuntüs does not allow reading mode to be activated while French, Spanish and German pages can ?

See our test video on this subject: http://share.emmabuntus.org/Accessibility/Firefox_mode_lecture_non_disponible_emmabuntus_en.mp4

Is there a utility to test pages compatible with reading mode?

Or otherwise in which Firefox log file to see if a page is compatible or not?

Thanks in advance for your help.
