Thunderbird 115.2.3. Mac OS 10.15.7 on an older Mac mini. I use larger-sized fonts, so display real estate is limited.

I want to see the full headers, but I want them to scroll in a message header pane that I can resize (that is, I want to be able to move the horizontal line pointed to in the attached image to increase the message display area and decrease the header display area). Otherwise, it takes over my entire message space. Is there a way to do this (I haven't found it)?

Thunderbird on my Windows 11 PC was updated to 115.3.1 (64-bit). I like my default view to sort by date and grouped by sort. Since the update, all threads default to expanded. I can collapse the "\"; however, when I switch between email accounts, the view is expanded when I come back. Is there any way to set the view back to collapsed? Or should I restore a previous version of Thunderbird?

Thank you!

If I search "lemmy", I want to see that in the URL instead of the full search URL: https://www.google.com/search?q=lemmy. It makes it easier to copy the search query. If the query has spaces than they're written with +s in the URL. I remember months ago this ended up being the default even for pre-existing Firefox profiles, but then it was changed back.

Thunderbird decided to update itself to 115.3.3 (64-bit) today. Not pleased.

The main screen is basically divided in to three areas (boxes). On the left I have my different email accounts, lower down I have my folders for saved messages (1).

Top right is showing message headers (Subject, From, Recipient, Date etc.) (2).

Under the above box is more details of message header, then under that is the message 'body'.

I can easily change the vertical divider bar between the left box (1) and the two stacked boxes on the right (2), Good :)

However the horizontal divider between the top right box and the bottom right box has limited movement, so I'm unable to enlarge the message 'body' section (3) to be able to read more than a line or two. Also it would help if the top of section 3 where the From, To, Subject and Date are repeated from box 2 were removed (as I said, they're repeats of box 2) leaving more space for the message body contents.

I've found some settings for font size which helped a little, but how do I improve on what you can see in my image please?

I suspect I could change the screen resolution, but with my poor eye sight, how do I read the text in other programs?

Thanks in advance

I am trying to migrate from a very old version of Firefox (v. 55) to the current one, but there is an app that is more helpful to me that all the other features combined. That is the "Tab Grouping" app that will not run in any version of FF higher than v. 55.

In my work, which often includes a tremendous amount of research, I need to be able to quickly go from one group of tabs to another. If I had to open all these sites manually, that would take the better part of the day and frankly I don't have near the mental capacity to remember the tremendous number of tabs. I have had a couple replies (Thanks!) to this question sometime back, but unfortunately none were even close in performance.

So, can anyone direct me to an app that will allow very quick movement from different sets of windows/tab groups (please see screen shots below)? Is there anyway that I can get this app to work in Legacy mode? I have several other old apps that work perfectly well in this mode.

The other morning, Thunderbird I believe did an update. This appeared to only take a few seconds, but when I re opened Thunderbird and typed an email message, I noticed that spell check had some how disappeared and was no longer working. I read a few help messages and even downloaded a new dictionary. Nothing worked and I'm still left without spellcheck. I've looked through all the other items and settings and did make sure the spell check boxes were checked. Willing to try anything else that you can suggest since I'm out of resources to try. Thanks

Before TB 115, when viewing my Inbox, if I pressed Enter with a message selected, it always opened it, or so I believe. Now, sometimes it opens it, sometimes it deletes it (aahr!). Is it now doing Redo on Enter-key? If it's a change, I hate it, because it can be destructive rather than just inconvenient.

The new selection "Copy without site tracking" may eliminate certain codes, but does not remove all invasive data (my term). Consider this common URL occurrence:

link text

The new filter does absolutely nothing to this and when I pass this kind of URL on to others, I do not want to include all that crapola. Currently I have to manually edit the link, which can really get tiresome when passing on a lot of links.

Is there a way to modify anything in Firefox to accommodate this?

I am working on a website that uses Unicode extensively. Some glyphs do not show correctly. In particular U+2A75, which is double equals. I am using Ubuntu, and I have installed Unifont. In the image, I have opened Firefox on the right and Chromium on the left, the URL is https://www.compart.com/en/unicode/U+2A75 Chromium is displaying the page correctly, Firefox is not. However, in both cases, the character is correctly displayed in the text in the Tab header after the favicon. browser.display.use_document_fonts is set to 1 I have read the Support page on editing fonts. Inspecting the element as suggested in the 'Editing Fonts' page, (see 2nd image uploaded), I see - in the source pane on the left, the character is correctly displayed (as in the tab text) - the Font being used to display the character in the rendered HTML is 'Source Sans Pro', which probably does not have the glyph for U+2A75. - the Font supplied by the website (presumably it does have the glyph) is list as a font, but I can't find a way to have it display the element.

I have tried to change the font family for the selected element in the Rules pane, but that does not work.

I have tried a variety of other changes in about:config but nothing seems to work.

I have two thoughts - the Font family for some Unicode ranges may be set for security reasons, and so U+2A75 is forced to some other Font - the fallback mechanism is not working to select a font when the glyph is not in the first family.

I am writing from an enterprise environment and I have been directed to the community page by Mozilla support to seek answers. This approach seems somewhat unreasonable for an enterprise setting and it has led me to consider discontinuing their product within our organization. I had requested support to send me a copy of my previous correspondence as I had forgotten some details, but this request was ignored, which is disappointing.

I am skeptical about receiving the help or answers I need here. If there is a more direct line to Mozilla support, I would greatly appreciate being redirected there.

We are currently using Firefox 121.0 and are attempting to implement the Applied Epic extension. I have updated the ADMX policy.

Originally, the reg key flip I created did work but something has changed since then. See screenshot of this. I followed the guide provided at https://github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/blob/v5.5/docs/index.md, which instructed me to place the registry key in Software\Policies\Mozilla\Firefox\Extensions\Install\1. However, the guide did not specify whether this should be in HKLM or HKCU. I tried this instead, and it did not work.

I also attempted to implement the extension via GPO, but this was unsuccessful. I tried the new Extension Management system as well, but to no avail.

Here is the JSON configuration I used: {

 "AppliedEpicExtension@gmail.com": {
   "installation_mode": "force_installed",
   "install_url": "https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/file/4143256/applied_epic_extension-3.16.3.xpi"
 }

}

Despite following the guide and trying multiple methods, none of the options seem to work. I would appreciate any guidance on what I might be doing wrong.

I would love to see option to freeze the Favourites section of the folder pane to the top of the folder. Currently if you scroll down the folder pane the Favourites section disappears. If you have lots of folders, this defeats the purpose of having it. I've tried searching for solutions many times and tried add-ons but to no avail. This is the most frustrating and time wasting function of Thunderbird for me and I've seen other users in previous conversations express the same concern. It is a standard feature and has been for many years in Outlook. Please include this in future releases!

Is it possible any longer to configure Thunderbird 115.0 to open the address book in a separate window. Meaning stand alone? Address book by itself

It used to work using this method:

Navigate to the Mozilla Thunderbird folder on your computer. The default installation folder under Windows is C:\Program Files\Mozilla Thunderbird\

Right-click the thunderbird.exe file and select Create Shortcut. Save it in that directory or alternatively on the desktop if restrictions prevent the saving to the same directory.

Right-click the shortcut afterwards and select Properties from the context menu. Locate the Target path in the Shortcut tab and add -addressbook at the end of it (there is a blank between the closing " and the -addressbook, the end should read thunderbird.exe -addressbook).

It brings up the Thunderbird, and puts the address book a tab. I want the address book to open stand "alone"
