Is there a reason no one has developed a simple Restart browser button, that will open the browser in the same, last session?

I know you can do it from "About:Profiles", but it would be convenient to have it on the toolbar. I'm sure a lot of people would appreciate it.

My mother recently opened up Thunderbird on her computer to find all the folders were empty. She closed and reopened Thunderbird, but found that the folders themselves had disappeared. The emails and folders were also gone when she tried logging into Outlook and Windows Mail.

The existing help suggestion on this topic requires clicking on the folders to repair them, which is obviously not possibly as the folders themselves have disappeared.

Posting here because neither myself or anyone in my family is particularly knowledgeable about computers and we’re not sure what to do.

Any information would be much appreciated.

I found it difficult to read subject lines and message text in Thunderbird. I want to change the font size in the Thunderbird UI.

I read about changing userChrome.css in several places. But I wanted an easier way to change the font size.

A post mentioned "layout.css.devPixelsPerPx". And the steps associated with that is what I found to be easiest for me.

I'm using Linux. On Linux:

  • Open Hotdogs > Preferences > General (tab on left)
  • Scroll to the bottom of the General settings.
  • Click on the Config Editor button. You might be warned about changing these settings. Please click through to the Config Editor.
  • Type "layout.css.devPixelsPerPx" into the search bar. The setting will show as a search result in the lower pane. My default value was -1.0
  • Double click on the value and type "1.2"
  • Press Enter to save the change. It should take effect immediately.

Essentially, this value scales the entire UI by a percent where 1.0 is 100%, 1.2 is 120%, and so on. Some explanation of this value can be found in an old document. See link below.

I found this change easier and more comprehensive than hand editing a style sheet. I wish there were some simple UI for this in Thunderbird. I assume the DPI setting for the OS would have the same effect. But I'm only having a problem with Thunderbird.

I got a Windows update yesterday and now gmail only downloads one email....over and over and over...now up to 100 times. I can see my gmail on my phone just not on my PC and newer emails are there as well as on webmail. When I look on webmail, that one email is not even there, but it keeps downloading every time Thunderbird looks for mail.

I updated my Thunderbird version (78.14.0) recently, and have noticed a significant reduction in the size of the email folder:

"C:\Users\loginID\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird"

The compressed copy went from 6GB+ down to 1.4GB. I did not perform any Compact Folder or Repair Folder.

Does anyone know if the latest version of Thunderbird gets rid of a lot of junk? That would explain why the folder size went down.

Hello,

I found a way to use Mullvad VPN with NextDNS on all of my devices. (iOS, Mac)

Does Mozilla VPN (based on Mullvad VPN) will support a better integration-option to use NextDNS (of other DNS services) together with the VPN?

This is a deal-breaker for me and a must for choosing a reliable VPN service to use. (No other bold textVPN service offer full integration with NextDNS yet, so Mozilla can have a huge advantage if they will enable this option)

Thank you.

I'm using Windows 10 and have installed FF 92.0 as the default browser and recently installed MS Works 9.

When I click on a link within a document it does not open. The cursor does change to a hand & it does say "CTRL +click to follow link https….", but that doesn’t work. However it does turn on the Underline function in the word processor.

Clicking on links has worked for years with Windows 7 and MS Works 7. I don’t see any settings in Works 7 or 9 that control this.

Is there a FF setting that enables this?

There was a clear indication that simply resetting Firefox would save passwords while hopefully improving performance. BUT ALL LOCKWISE PASSWORDS AND LOGONS HAVE APPARENTLY BEEN LOST. There are online instructions to copy/paste all data in the Old Firefox Data fldr to the "new profile fld" in 'about:profiles'. But the lost passwords still do not appear. Can anyone explain:

(1) is it possible to recover lost passwords from Old Firefox Data ? (2) why this happened despite false re-assurance that passwords would not be lost ?

Hi all, I have two computers both running Windows 10 and both have Thunderbird 78.14.0 but one of computers is running Thunderbird 78.14.0 (64-bit) whilst the other is running 78.14.0 (32-bit). The one running the 32 bit works fine and prints everything no problem but the PC running the 64 bit has a horrible layout and the messages that are saved in the sent folder look different and printing is horrible. Is this an issue with the 64 or 32 bit or is it something that is different in the settings. If I downgraded to 32 bit would that solve the problem ? If so, how to I downgrade Thunderbird from 64 to 32 bit ? Thank you.

Good day, 1st time I have needed help with Thunderbird in years of use. Over the last several weeks I have been getting the following message when trying to send emails:

"The size of the message you are trying to send exceeds a temporary size limit of the server. The message was not sent; try to reduce the message size or wait some time and try again. The server responded: 4.7.1 <unknown[50.34.156.151]>: Client host rejected: mvhdr@frontier.com exceeded hourly recipients threshold.."

I contacted Frontier and the tech tried several things; no help; she decided problem is not on their end. She changed my Frontier PW and it worked again for 2 days, then no more. I can send from Yahoo and I receive email fine on Thunderbird. I do not send large emails or multiple addresses. Windows 10 machine. Thanks for any help!!
